Just released a new Demo from Demoscene, this time is The Fulcrum by Matrix Demogroup.
Released in 1998 at at Mekka & Symposium event, where it ranked 1st.

Download from Aros Archives http://archives.aros-exec.org/?function=showfile&file=demo/scene/thefulcrum.i386-aros.zip

Link at Pouet: https://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=313
Original Sources are here
https://files.scene.org/view/parties/1998/mekkasymposium98/demo/fulcrum_src.zip

This Aros release is based on the impressive work done by M-HT that converted all ASM sources to
C++/SDL and released for Linux and OpenPandora Handheld some years ago...
His sources are here https://github.com/M-HT/fulcrum

Aros port use DUMB library (version 0.93) for music and sound fx, M-HT have
implemented possibility to use both BASS or DUMB in the demo, but BASS library
is closed source and not available for Aros..so not possible to use.
I compiled DUMB library from GCW-Zero source release (also from M-HT Github).

Sources of the demo are included in the package.

Tested on AROS One with and without 3D support and is working fine, i have
included 2 version of the demo one that use an 800x600 resolution, and another
one that run in 1024x768.


Enjoy

Good job Farox, I have prepared usual two iconic prototypes, one is the face of the main character, the other is taken from the photo hanging on the wall, your choice!

The demo looks good - thanks for porting Smile

When you have time, could you also try re-compiling any of your recent work for 64-bit AROS and let me know if you run into any issues compared to 32-bit process?

Yes i could try, but first i must compile the 64bit Aros, and it takes some time.

On the Archives you could now find the DUMB library that i used to compile this demo.
Download here http://archives.aros-exec.org/?function=showfile&file=development/library/libdumb.i386-aros.zip

This is only needed if you decide to compile this demo or other programs that need it.

I enclose the Icons with the image you suggested "fulcrum.ico.png" ! I tried to improve it but being dark I did not get the hoped improvements, I hope they are ok !

Yes thank you. I think i'll take one for the Drawer (Cassetto in italian) and still use the original one for the executable.
Many thanks for your help.

@deadwood
I compiled Aros64bit (toolchain+linux64+contrib from github) and compilation goes ok.
Next i compiled without problems Arrakis.
But using SDL give me software failure (attached picture), when i changed using you SDL.library downloaded from the other thread all goes well (tested only Arrakis for now). Now i'll test some other progs.

I tested also mbx ( that use SDL+GL) and its working only after i add your advice to put hostgl in a file.
The only problem is that the screen is flashing every number of seconds (i don't know how much), seems something like when a screenbuffer is flipped , but i could be wrong.
The same thing happens also on abiv0 (noted but not reported when i was testing the i386 version).
Maybe happen only on my PC...don't know.

On a side note...i saw around 60 download of DUMB library but only 11 of this demo. Really odd !
Maybe there someone out there that need this library for something else. Wink

Can you share mbx 64-bit binary? I'd like to add it to my testing set.
