It looks like #snis runs without issue on my pinebook pro.
Or, at least, it *launches* without error.
I don't have enough people around to actually try to play tonight, but I'll try again tomorrow.
Has anyone tried to run this on a pi4? I bet it'd run on the pi4. I'm going to try that tomorrow too.
I fiddled with this some more yesterday and ended up crashing the game. Until it crashed, it appeared to be running pretty well.
I haven't had a chance to try it on a pi4 yet, but I imagine that will be successful as well.
@ajroach42 I was about to, but I can't seem to get a bootable image for mine. 😢
@danhunsaker it doesn't take long to compile, or at least it didn't on my pinebook, and the instructions are pretty straightforward
@ajroach42 Yeah, got it set up on a VM. Just not having any luck getting my pi4 to start.
@ajroach42 Re-flashed Raspbian and ran through the install steps. Just waiting for assets, now, then I'll give it a whirl on my pi4 and let you know what happens.
@danhunsaker most curious to know if the weapons screen works. You'll have to go to engineering and give power to impulse and weapons in order to test it.
@ajroach42 Well, I was able to aim and shoot the planets, so I'm guessing Weps works fine. 😄
@danhunsaker neat! I'll have to give it a go when I have a chance to fiddle with it again.
@danhunsaker @ajroach42 Did you notice any red FPS indicator in the upper left part of the screen? (If this appears, it means it's having trouble hitting 30 FPS.) If SNIS works on a pi 4, that'd be awesome. The weapons screen is probably the most demanding (except maybe main/nav hybrid mode, activated via "SET MAIN_NAV_HYBRID=1" on demon screen.)
@danhunsaker @ajroach42 It's really great news that SNIS runs well on the Raspberry pi 4 at 720p. Even with a few dips into 28,29fps territory, some screens are less demanding. It greatly reduces the cost of a 5 or 6 station setup if the R Pi 4 works for even some of the stations, although it sounds like it's more or less acceptable for all of the stations, possibly excepting Main Screen if you want high resolution. Thanks so much for trying this out an reporting your results!
@smcameron @ajroach42 I wouldn't even begin to know how to overclock a Pi, so no, I wasn't. That said, I wouldn't be terribly surprised if my results were abnormal, since I wasn't running anything beyond the minimal software itself - no missions or suchlike. It's good to have more data points on this.
