Xbox port released

Postby hcf » 12 Nov 2012 13:12

Hi Secret Maryo friends!

I'm very glad to say that I have made a port of Secret Maryo Chronicles for Xbox (not the Xbox 360, but the original Xbox). This idea was born in the year 2006, in this thread, and finally we have it:

http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=527729

The port is available in the http://www.emuxtras.net site. The version that I have ported is v0.97, which is a bit old but still very funny to play, and it is very nice that your wonderfull project is now playable in a new plattform. In the future, we hope to have OpenGL support for Xbox, and then we will be able to port the most modern versions of SMC :)

I want to say a big THANK YOU to all the people involved in this awesome project. Thank you from me, and thank you from all the Xbox users who are very happy to be able to play your game in our old (but still cool) black console.

Finally, I want to say that there is now a lot of people asking me where to download new worlds or levels for the game :) As I am not sure (because they must be compatible with the 0.97 version) I am suggesting to check your forum in this thread, and go for the oldest levels (from the year 2006 for example):

viewforum.php?f=21&start=280

Anyways, if anyone has gathered some levels compatible with that old v0.97 version of SMC and he could tell me, I would be very gratefull. I guess that the most modern levels are not compatible, but all the oldest levels can work in this Xbox version.

Thanks again for all, you know that now you have a lot of more fans of your wonderfull project! :)

Cool :D

- How did you get around the performance problems ?
- Please upload the source code somewhere!
- Checking if a level is compatible should be easy if you open it with a text editor and check the first line : "### Level Saved with Secret Maryo Chronicles V.0.97 ###"
Most levels saved with older versions should also work without problems and a maybe V. 0.98 - 0.99.2 but these can use new graphics and active objects.
V. 0.99.3 has the new (.smclvl) level format.
If i didn't read your post but it was important you can send me a PM.

It may sound stupid, but after trying lots of things, I finally did not make any optimization on the code. The Xbox is powerfull enough to run this game, but I was not using the correct Optimization options of the compiler!! Some experienced developers of the Xbox scene (Hyper_Eye, Freakdave and Madmab) gave me advices and I configured the optimization options of the compiler properly... and then the game ran well without changing anything :D

- Please upload the source code somewhere!

Of course, I have attached it to this post. I am seeing that people is uploading the Xbox port to several sites (theisozone, eurasia, and so on...) and those sites will not host sources, but I think that the correct thing is placing the code here, because everyone that can search for it, will come to this site for sure :) If you think that this thread is not the correct one and you want to move this to other thread, or even to the downloads section of your web, of course feel free to do it. Oh, and there is no need to give credit to me :)

Thank you very much for the info about levels. It's a pity that there is no repository with all the levels compatible for every version, but anyways I'm sure that people will be able to look for levels themselves.

Do you think that it would be inappropiate if I write a post in the "Releases" section asking if people storaged levels of previous versions and could upload them for the Xbox users?

By the way... there is already people asking that the most modern version is ported... Maybe if we had OpenGL support in the future I will do it :)

Should be no problem, level creators probably want their levels to be played as often and hard as possible ;)

:ninja: Make a PS3 port. That would be cool.

That would require WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY too much time, more time than anybody of us here have. Furthermore, the XBOX port was only accomplished because the XBOX uses an architecture very similar to a PC (read: it has Intel inside), while the PS3 doesn't have an Intel CPU.

And stop bumping old threads already!

Isn't the Xbox based on the Windows kernel also?

Am I correct to assume this requires an emulator?
