News/release from nczempin:
I've started working on converting the original Football Manager to the DS.
Paul Robson has ported, or reverse-engineered, or remade, the original Football Manager by Kevin Toms. He has provided his source code here.
I took that, plus the DS port of the SDL, and started working on a port to the DS.
The current status is:
A pre-alpha version is running. You can see some of the menu screens, and once it comes to match day, you can actually see a match.
It is not really playable (other than advancing from match to match), in fact, I have taken out quite a bit of functionality.
So you should take a look at it only if you are very curious.
I will release the source code as well, of course (it's GPL), but I haven't found a permanent home for it yet.
Given that it is likely that I will not keep maintaining this for a long time (it is only a "finger exercise" to get acquainted with DS homebrew), it would be nice if someone would like to take over, provide webspace, etc. Putting it on sourceforge would be a bit of an overkill IMHO.
