1. New Quake version available
Having a workable SDL version, I decided to test it with a huge program.
So I used Quake (or more precisely nuq, available at
http://www.quakeforge.net ). I compiled two versions. One is 68000
without FPU (works with STonX and Aranym), the other is 68020 or higher
with FPU (I can not test it). Video is supported via XBIOS or VDI.
Keyboard and mouse should work. You need a very fast machine. With STonX
and Aranym, I get 5 to 10 seconds per image).
I would like people having non standard Atari (with graphics boards,
accelerators, or clones) test it to verify if it works. And it can make a
good benchmark. I hope returns from the FPU version (specially on
040/060), because I do not know if it works.
About Quake with SDL:
On [Mega]ST[E]/ST emulators , you get 320x200 in grey levels (4 planes).
On TT, 320x240 in 256 colours (8 planes).
On Falcon/Aranym, 320x200 (TV) 320x240 (VGA) in 256 colors (8 planes).
VDI (avoid multitasking OS and AES, like Magic or Mint):
320x200 8 bits with an equal or higher resolution.
With a graphics boards which provides a 1 byte/pixel mode, it should work.
Use the environmenet variable SDL_VIDEODRIVER=vdi to test this driver.
I do not spread a complete SDL version, because I would like to have a
GEM driver for video.
The archive on my web site is nuq-20011128.zip
