Just... let's not talk about framerates just yet :)

Now my GamePark32 port is done:

Not all that challenging to get it to run fast, as it is a comparatively powerful system, a straight C scanline-based polygon filler proved more than enough! :)

I am working on a 3DO port right now.
Too bad that while it works flawlessly on emu, it just happens to freeze with black screen before even displaying the first frame on real 3DO. Have been burning more than five CDs with different tests and printouts, trying to find out why :P

The version using the hardware quad rasterizer will do well over 60fps (from 80 to 150fps without vsync) on the emulator but remains to be tested on the real hardware as there could be bottlenecks (although because it's untextured, maybe it will be minimal). I've also tested a software rasterizer for comparison and get between 7 and 15fps, mostly under 10.

I just finished this version.

There is A demo mode (vsynced with music), B benchmark hardware, C benchmark software rendered.
Will make youtube video soon on the real 3DO.

@optimus looks like your palette is quite wrong there.

Oh shit, something is off there, didn't notice. And in other places, some colors are right, some are oversaturated. Will check again and could update, I was planning to release a later version with some additional benchmark ideas, maybe.

Oh shit, actually all the colors were flipped but it was in such a way that it mostly looked ok.
See, even the oxygene logo has dark red on top :(
I did the rule color = 15 - bit in the bitmask, but then I shifted right and checked bit from the right side and read the next ushort. So the rule of which of the pal colors to change this frame was correct, but I was reading them in subsequent reads flipped.

Anyone have the tracked music format I can borrow? MOD would be ideal. STF in a pinch. Desert Dream soundtrack?
cool stuff so far... I did not followed too much as I was bussy with my oldschool entry for Revision... ;)
MD version in progress too... when is the deadline exactly?

Deadline was ment to be Revision time but it was more like "hey good date and time to release".

So I am more happy to have releases ready and we compile all of them and have as much as possible. I guess some of us are more bind up to finish their Revision entry ;)

If course you can release @ revision
Boring implementation for BeOS

Will try to compile it on an actual BeOS machine and tweak performance there (tested for Haiku for now). Oh and I should add sound, of course.

Speed: way too fast on my main machine, so I cap to 60fps for now. Will add benchmark mode later.
I plan to release the PSP version in 3 weeks at the end of the holidays. I hope I can make it a little less boring until then.

I need to write the GPU version but I'm in lazy mode :(, maybe later or tomorrow I'll find some motivation.

WTF?!? SVG can animate? And play music as well? Didn't know that!

Well crap, I only now just saw this. Would have been neat to try an 8088+CGA version.

@LUIS: can you please credit me, since you are using part of my code, posted 6 months ago?

@LUIS: oh, I see you did. Thanks.

Aha, you can embed Javascript code into the SVG, ok, then it makes more sense! :)

Just do it!
Well, I've lost! XD
