This game lends itself perfectly for porting to a DAP, and
is fun to play as well, good idea!

I had some problems when tried to play the game during playback. When I was in the game menu the music stopped. Also when I try to exit the game by pressing the stop button (H300) the player freezes. That's all, keep up the good work

I think this should fix the playback and allow you to quit using the stop button

There seems to be a problem with your patch. The function plugin_start is missing a return ret; and the closing curly brace.
But the game seems pretty good. Good idea!

This is quite an adicting game :)

Some comments:
* Some #defines aren't used anywhere in the plugin. These should be removed. (I guess that they were copied from Brickmania :) )
* The source code allows setting the level mode to steep (LEVEL_MODE_STEEP) but that can't be changed anywhere in the interface.
* amiconn wants to ban all custom menus from plugins. Could you try using the rockbox menu api ?
* Would it be possible to add an option to use a more realistic acceleration/deceleration scheme ? Some thing like when you press the Action button you get a 1px/s² upwards acceleration and when you don't you get a -2px/s² downwards acceleration. (and add some max/min speed limits if needed) (the 1 and -2 values are kind of random and would need to be adjusted to something fun)

Two more comments:
* when restarting the game really fast (less than a second i guess), it uses the same level again. Must be due to some call to srand( clock time in seconds ) i guess.
* it'd be nice to have at least the first full screen without any bars so that you can't loose directly upon game start.

Here is a fixed version of the patch.
Comment by Bobby Graese (TrueJournals) - Thursday, 19 October 2006, 12:16 GMT
Updated the patch to add keymappings for the H10.

Here's an updated patch which uses the rockbox menu api. It seems to freeze occasionally when entering/exiting the menu. I haven't figured out why just yet.
Comment by Max Weninger (maxwen) - Wednesday, 13 December 2006, 01:14 GMT
it crashes in line 648
rb->set_option("Level", iLevelMode, INT, levels, 2, NULL);
IMHO you must use &iLevelMode

Any chance of an update for latest SVN?
I get

Just fix it yourself for now... takes 10 seconds
Comment by Bobby Graese (TrueJournals) - Sunday, 04 February 2007, 02:42 GMT
Here are two files that should work with latest SVN. chopper.patch is the game without using the menu API, and chopper_with_menu_api.diff is the game USING the menu API. Choose whatever one you like. I also tried to fix the occasional freeze when exiting/entering menu that barry reported by using maxwen's fix.
