“End of the week” Status

August 27, 2006

Polo35 (well known for his work on uLaunch) has joined the team and is working now on a very nice GUI for the LuaPlayer. Tmator on his side, is back from holiday and is working on libmikmod πŸ™‚

System library has been added to the available libraries and LuaPlayer can now run the lowser browser to run games. Following video show the lowser app running and then executing DrMario (Loading time is slow, this being due to, as before, loading through the network for debbugging purpose). Note also that drMario is the unmodified current PSP version πŸ™‚

If you want more daily fresh news, you can also visit the froggies’website (only in french sorry), where you can find a dedicated LUA section in our forum.

Please understand that the Player still need more work, debugging and fine tuning before a release, but we are certainely now near from a first beta release πŸ™‚ Thanks for all the encouraging messages anyway, I really appreciate them !



QuickΒ Update

August 15, 2006

Just a little update to show another game running under the PS2 LuaPlayer πŸ™‚
I got this one running and a bunch of other ones after I fixed a bug with Alpha Channels.

Anyway, don’t check my score πŸ™‚


Luamines on PS2Β !

August 13, 2006

Good news from the PS2 Lua Player : I made some progress, and as you can see it can now run some more complex script like Luamines ! (version 0.03 by Dragula96)

For those interested you can also here a video of the game running. The game is a bit slow to show up and you’ll see the “Lua Powered” splash for a few seconds because of the loading time (all images used by the lua script are loaded from host).
Also, font display seems a bit screwed up on the video, but this is because of the divx compression (check the screen capture above).

a Quick status :
LuaControls : one pad support
LuaGraphics : need more work on the blitting functions to use gsKit properly
LuaTimer : done
LuaSounds : no sound output yet 😦

Still in alpha stage and a work in progress anyway πŸ™‚
