kickstarter for social retro gaming on the r-pi (and kodi?)
#1
since the retroplayer project is moving at a steady slow pace i think it would be nice to have another platform that focuses on bringing games to rpi with Kodi integration and that might become a reality since the kickstarter is only 700$ away from that goal imho finally a awesome retro games for the rpi and other arm based platform already successfully funded just the stretch goal of Kodi missing in any case i wanted to bring it to Kodi uses awareness since there must be more then me that want this for arm platforms Smile

Neat. Kicktraq predicts them hitting their XBMC/Kodi stretch goal, too: http://www.kicktraq.com/projects/1717505...-raspberr/

I think I will start a kickstarter project to educate about sentence structure, including fullstops. M'eh then eye thort abut the taxes eye pay for eddicashun.

It's really pretty amazing what RetroArch can do.

haha, this is almost the exact same concept I had when I posted about RakNet in the RetroPlayer forum here

http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=201868

RakNet engine embedded with a GUI integrated into Kodi/XBMC with RetroPlayer could be something similar

Any chance of you implementing it into Kodi/XBMC for networked and online gaming with RetroPlayer over the internet?

https://github.com/OculusVR/RakNet
http://www.jenkinssoftware.com/features.html

"For those unfamiliar with RakNet, it is a comprehensive C++ networking engine for game programmers designed for ease of use and performance. The tech is tuned for integration into cross-platform, high-performance applications that operate across a wide variety of network types.

Key features include object replication, remote procedure calls, patching, secure connections, voice chat, and real-time SQL logging. The technology has been licensed by thousands of indie developers, as well as companies like Unity, Havok, Mojang, Maxis and Sony Online Entertainment.
"

Would be very cool to have an online gaming community just for Kodi/XBMC with all interface integrated!

Will this work on the Pivos Xios XS (also ARM)?

Why do you think so? Is it a different platform/OS/hardware?

From what I understand, the older type of ARM processor that the Pi uses is very different than what most ARM processors use today. Maybe some of the code can be ported over, but it would be just that, a port and not something that would work "out of the box". IIRC, most, if not all, of what they were doing was open source, so this is actually likely, but I imagine it will be a little bit before you can just use their direct images on other hardware like the XIOS XS.

There are various parts that you can already use, though. Most of the emulators can already run on the XIOS XS, and you can run a linux-based OS on there. I'm just not sure about the full package that includes social integration and multiplayer matchmaking. Then again, it's been awhile since I've read about them, so maybe someone has already gotten to porting those parts for other ARM systems.

Before you troll on the OP, might be nice if you also checked your grammar, should be "full stops" not fullstops

Thanks for your explanation, but I'm not sure I understand you correctly. Ignition is open source, and that makes it likely it would be available for the XS in time? And you say that the emulators can already run on the XS, how would I go at this? I currently run a unsupported version of XBMC on it (made by Hydra), a Gotham 13.2 linux version, because the original Android/TOFU did not suit me.

I have been exploring a lot, but have the feeling that RetroArch/Player are not yet compatible with XS/ARM, but there are plans to make this according to this:

http://www.libretro.com/index.php/after-...-retrobox/

I did manage to install add-ons like Advanced Launcher and RCB, but there I get stopped in my tracks. I simply have insufficient knowlegde on how to install an emulator (say manually, because I see RetroArch/Player as a somewhat automated way for this). I got this link (http://www.linuxlinks.com/article/200810...soles.html) in another topic that tells me they are available, but it really beats me on how to get them installed for Advanced Launcher to be able to use them.

Angelscry: Just install game emulators on your linux system and launch them using command line support from Advanced Launcher.

When going to the ZSNES forum, I see mentioning that the cpu must be x86 'compatible'. Is that the case with my processor (Cortex Dual-Core A9 1.5 GHz)? And is this a requirement for all the emulators that are in the link?

Would love to figure this out, but having a hard time getting pointers on how to get this done. Or is it best to sit it out, and wait for RetroArch/Player to be integrated in Kodi altogether?

A lot of that stuff does get very complicated when using specialty builds/OSes, like the Hydra linux install for DS/XS. It's a little easier when you are running Android/TOFU, but can still be a lot to set up if you want the same level of features as shown in that kickstarter. It's all technically possible, but getting that great out-of-box easy setup isn't there yet for devices like the XS, but hopefully people will want to work on that in the future.

I've only installed emulators on Android, since I'm not sure how to install additional software packages on Hydra-like installs. I'm not even sure if there's a package manager or not, but I haven't looked too far into it.

I'm hoping the RetroPlayer features coming to future versions of Kodi will be the ticket. It will make things a lot easier to set up and use, and in theory it should work on any platform that can run a normal version of XBMC/Kodi.
