00:52:34[Saint]jtdesigns01: I'm not sure how you think the DooM plugin works, on any device, but we don't have a
00:52:50[Saint](think about it)
00:53:30[Saint]If we displayed a keyboard, you'd still need to use physical keys to navigate it, and it would block the entire screen on most devices.
00:53:57jtdesigns01HAHA, ok fine... keypad. there, are you satisfied?
00:54:30[Saint]So you're asking "does the DooM plugin allow user input"?
00:55:09jtdesigns01no, does the sansa fuze+ have a good keypad for *playing* doom
00:56:16[Saint]Depends on your definition of "good". I guess. Consensus says no.
00:56:44[Saint]That's true of any target.
00:57:25jtdesigns01you mean keypads are not good for doom on any target?
00:58:16[Saint]I do. I'm guessing you've not tried it on device?
00:58:34[Saint]The lowmem targets won't even make it past the first few levels, so, there's that, too.
00:58:51[Saint]Its more of a novelty.
00:59:00jtdesigns01no, i am getting my fuze+ tommorow.
00:59:31jtdesigns01well, the fuze+ does have 64MB of ram, which should be enough
01:00:02[Franklin]for what?

01:01:55jtdesigns01and dark forces too..... hopefully......... someday...........
01:02:10[Franklin]well, if you want some inspiration, check out the xworld plugin
01:02:32jtdesigns01xworld? hm, i will check it out in the sim. just a sec
01:02:44[Franklin]you need the data files...
01:02:55[Saint]The main issue, as you'll find out, is controls.
01:02:59[Saint]Or lack of them.
01:03:04[Franklin]from an original DOS installation, of course ;P
01:03:16[Franklin]which is definitely where I got my copy from
01:03:26[Saint]So you'll be getting your ass kicked, trying to get away to a safe place so you can stand in a corner and change weapons safely.
01:03:30[Saint]so on.
01:03:47[Saint]DAP kays do not lend themselves well to playing DooM.
01:04:05[Franklin]or any game requiring 6+ buttons
01:04:50jtdesigns01well, at least it will be a little fun on long boring car rides.
01:05:00[Franklin]essentially the largest number of buttons before entering a UX nightmare is 5
01:05:16[Saint]Smartphones _destroyed_ the DAP market.
01:06:09jtdesigns01i am a old hardware geek, you might say
01:07:04jtdesigns01i have a PowerMac G3 beige (oldworld) running Ubuntu 15.04 as a server in my basement
01:08:11foolshfuze+ and Doom, hmm if the player was tilted sideways so fire and a strafe were vol- and vol+, and power was used for menu, this would allow sufficient inputs to over come the touch pad's absence of multi touch support. aka only one button on the fuze+'s touch pad may be activated at any time
01:09:30[Saint]How big could we make the window if we rotated it 45 degrees, lol?
01:09:53jtdesigns01it shouldnt be too hard to reprogram the keybindings at least. tilting the display, IDK. probably hard.
01:10:05foolshokay start ass "rotated"
01:10:10[Saint]keybindings is harder than you'd think.
01:11:23jtdesigns01sorry, i didnt mean that to be a joke. i seriously meant rotating. not actually tilting the device.
01:11:29[Saint]But, yeah, foolsh just touched on something I forgot about.
01:11:51[Saint]On the _other_ targets where this is a bloody nightmare, we can get multiple keypresses.
01:11:57[Saint]On this thing, though, ...well.
01:12:12[Saint]That, and the touchpad is quite literally a massive pile of shit.
01:12:15jtdesigns01why would keybindings be so hard?
01:12:15[Saint]Its terrible.
01:12:48[Saint]jtdesigns01: because all the key slots are full and if you move one you've got to juggle all the others around it.
01:13:16jtdesigns01dont make me regret my purchase yet.
01:13:23jtdesigns01LOL, Just kidding.
01:13:37[Saint]You won't. Unless for some ungodly reason you purchased it for DooM alone.
01:13:49[Saint]Not knowing about the FUCKING TERRIBLE controls wasn't your fault.
01:14:11jtdesigns01why are they hard to use?
01:14:12[Saint]Its not something they seem to like to make public.
01:15:21jtdesigns01and actually, doom (and the other plugins) _was_ a big reason why i did get it
01:15:39*foolsh would rather have the old plain fuze with physical buttons over the fuze+
01:15:39[Saint]To suit out needs a bit better we took a really bad touchpad, and carved it up into a 3x3 grid, so on top of it already being terrible, you have to remember that the original key markings are now meaningless and don't actually show the right division between touch areas.
01:15:48[Saint]ANd the sensitivity is just plain awful.
01:16:22[Saint]though that can be adjusted to suit the user, somewhat.
01:16:39foolshthere are settings for adjustable sensitivity now though, so it's a bit better than terrible
01:16:52jtdesigns01hmmm. where are they?
01:17:06[Saint]probably not active in the SIM.
01:17:32foolshyeah, its in the system options menu on the actual target
01:18:20[Saint]The Fuze+ is a great little target, hampered by a really terrible (like, ...why?) screen, and even more terrible controls.
01:18:55jtdesigns01the screen is bad too?
01:19:22[Saint]Its just at "why did they bother" type level of insanity.
01:19:39jtdesigns01what do you mean?
01:19:39*foolsh has fancied the thought of hacking a physical game pad to the gpio-s or i2c bus some how
01:21:02[Saint]jtdesigns01: in my world it would be much better suited to have monochromatic display, rather than the minuscule full colour display.
01:21:16[Saint]I mean, yay, 96x96px album art!

01:24:43jtdesigns01well, too late now. anyway, i got a good bargain on it ($20 USD for an 8GB plus a 4GB MicroSD) (from a friend:D)

16:57:30azakii think that would depend partially on the hardware; if the device never supported it, then i wouldn't think it possible to just add that through software. i'm not sure how they work though, maybe all it requires is a microphone and the rest is software?

19:04:01[Saint]iPod Classic.
19:04:05[Saint](...that is all)
19:04:20[Saint]Or a Video, if you can find one.
19:08:56ReiharThe iPod was really one pertinent and positive to humanity product
19:09:11ReiharI don't really like apple but I have to give them credit for that
19:09:14Reiharand the apple II
19:09:24[Saint]Its virtually impossible to find a better built player.
19:09:30[Saint](which is also supported)
19:09:56[Saint]The various Sansas are essentially disposable plastic garbage.
19:10:04[Saint](this author's opinion)
19:10:15ReiharDid they totally kill off their ipod produciton?
19:10:23[Saint]They did, yes. Ages ago.
19:10:32ReiharI vaguely remember an iphone without phone when they launched the iphone
19:10:40[Saint]the iPod Classic was a pleasant surprise actually.
19:10:48[Franklin]great for games, actually
19:10:52ReiharSince I wasn't really caring I had thought they kept doing that.
19:10:55[Franklin]until the buttons break :P
19:11:42[Saint]Not if you're proficient with surface mount soldering. :))
19:11:51[Saint]and/or have a reflow station.
19:12:16[Franklin]just don't get too into the game, and you're fine
19:12:41[Saint]FWIW, its not like the sansas are any better in this regard.
19:12:50[Saint]if hold or volume breaks there, you're just as fucked.
19:12:57[Saint]For WHat Its Worth.
19:13:06[Franklin]at least ipods don't crack on the front
19:13:21[Saint]2/3/4G do.
19:13:25[Franklin]that's happened to me on multiple sansas
19:13:41[Franklin]5G and later were great
19:13:55ReiharSo, here is what's left of Apple's great music empire:
19:14:00[Saint]the clear plastic scratch protector that isn't a scratch protector gets hairline cracks and looks weird.
19:14:08[Saint]5G+ is the same, but, a lot better.
19:14:35[Saint]AFAIK they still sell the Nano line.
19:14:46ReiharI had a nano, a long time ago.
19:14:54[Saint]Last to die off, and /maybe/ the shuffle(s).
19:15:07ReiharA 2G, a long time ago.
19:15:08[Saint]The Nano 1G is fricken' GREAT.
19:15:19[Saint]Its just hampered by its virtually unusable storage.
19:15:26ReiharOh, the iPod touch is still alive.
19:15:39[Saint](the nano 1G is basically a NAND flash iPod Video)
19:16:10ReiharHum, there's still a nano and a shuffle.
19:16:27[Saint]Rather hilariously, iOS9 gave us a way in for Rockbox on non-jailbroken devices.
19:16:41Reihar2GB Ah ah ah ah ah
19:16:43[Saint]I sincerely doubt it'll happen, but, it /could/.
19:16:58[Franklin][Saint]: how?

22:48:58[Saint]foolsh: we do have an active mirror.
22:49:28[Saint]the main "problem" is github's fucking asinine pull/merge request system.
22:50:00[Saint]gerrit works a lot better in this regard, but then we face the problem we're facing now.
22:59:56bluebrotherRockbox development isn't too active anymore these days anyway.
23:00:16*bluebrother wonders if anybody thought of another attempt of a devcon again

23:01:32[Saint]I'm not sure what the basis behind that statement is
23:02:13[Saint]development is waning, sure. But we're essentially cutting any interested parties off at the pass right now, as it were.

23:44:44jtdesigns01well, i`m here; and, though i might have no experience with embedded devices up till now, i love getting modern, usable code to run on things that have no business running it (like mp3 players) (or a super old PowerMac G3 beige :P)

23:54:41JanCPowerMac G3 is plenty fast for a home server, but also needs a factor more energy than what you actually need for that on modern hardware :P

23:58:55[Saint]Even when you know better its really hard to ignore the divisional markings on it that we render meaningless.
