XWorld is an emulator of the virtual machine found in the game Another World (also known as Out of This World in some locales). It is a port of Fabother World.

Data Files

To play Another World, you'll need a copy of the data files from a DOS installation. The interpreter supports both the US and EU versions of the game, known as "Out of This World" and "Another World," respectively. The US version is recommended as the interpreter has several workarounds specific to that version which improve the experience.

Copy these files to the /.rockbox/xworld/ directory on your player. Any other files found in the archives can be discarded as they are not required.

For copyright reasons, XWorld ships with an alternate set of strings and an alternate font by default. However, XWorld will load a custom string table from "/.rockbox/xworld/xworld.strings" if it is present, and/or a custom font from "/.rockbox/xworld/xworld.font", which you need to create yourself based on data extracted from an original installation of the game.

Rockbox Utility does not install data files for this game.

Please do not ask for data files/copyrighted game resource files on the forums or IRC because it is illegal.

Getting Started

When you first start XWorld, you are presented with the code wheel verification screen. To proceed, use the code wheel which was found in the original packaging when you purchased the game and enter the symbols that correspond with the challenge that is given by the game.

Todo Status
Vertical stride support Some code written, still a ways to go
Grayscale support Needs integration with graylib, but this may interfere with the user timer
Testing XWorld has not been tested on many targets, and some bugs may still exist. Please report any you find.
