Is it possible to port this to N900 and fremantle? Would love to see this on my new shiny device

Tux Racer requires OpenGL, so a port to Fremantle would require modifying it to use GL ES. As one of the better linux-oriented games, it would be a worthy addition to maemo, but it's not a completely trivial port.

I suspect we'll see a lot more GL ES ports once things are better sorted with the libraries and some good examples.

Classic example of arbitrary Nokia decision making. Couldn't just fallback to the no brainer of tagging with lat/lon if network isn't accessible, could you Nokia?

Is Supertux based on another engine because I already saw a port for Fremantle?

Supertux doesn't require OpenGL. It's an "ordinary" 2D platform side-scroller.

This might help greatly: http://www.freepatentsonline.com/EP1847966.html

In fact it states that TuxRacer has already been ported to OpenGL ES

There's a open source OpenGL to OpenGL ES translator here: http://opensource.dylogic.com/DOGLES...les/About.html

I started a converson attempt on Tuxracer a couple of weeks ago. The big trouble was getting the OpenGL dependencies sorted out in the Autobuild system. I'm just not familiar enough with m4 macros and configure.ac. For now it's on hold due to work. If anyone else wants to try iGLU can be built by swapping in the default makefile.

This would be a great game to have. It's such a shame we can't put that nice HWA to work

Great game that would lend itself to accelerometer controls easily.
