I disagree. Being someone that owns an Oculus Rift paired with a GTX1080 I think the resolution and frame rates in each eye need to be considerably better yet. Mine is hardly ever used and if there were any resale value in it I'd sell it (there isn't).

I bought it for use in flight simulation but the current resolution is simply not good enough. When looking at the virtual cockpit you can hardly read what most of the dials say which makes it pretty pointless. A shame as the overall experience is really awesome.

Obviously run of the mill games and stuff are OK as long as the frame rate is kept way up to counter motion sickness (not the only factor of course) but they're still not great. I'm guessing people frequenting Amiga-like forum's are probably fine with 5 to 10 year old graphics quality which is what you get. I'm not.

As for what resolution is it going to take? Impossible to say but if I had to make a wild guess I'd say 4k in each eye at 90 to 120 fps. But we're a way off that yet. There's just no way round the grainy pixely picture you get in the current headsets.

Which video card should I buy next?


Unfortunately I can't answer that. My machine has integrated Intel GMA graphics and clearly won't be winning any awards when it come to playing 3D games. It does just fine with most 2D games though.

Clearly someone must be able to answer the question given games like Cube 2 and Red Eclipse have been released for Aros.

Having just spent the last few hours playing through some of the games in the full release of Icaros 2.2.2, I wouldn't mind a full system myself instead of this Netbook but I don't think it would be used enough to justify building one.

I'm never too sure how much of your posts to put down to not being a native English speaker, so I'll go easy. My first reaction was "Sure, we'll have that all knocked up by the end of the week!"

Anyway...

Quote:

can you finish the version of Aros i386?
with 2d graphics and 3d natives
the native sound card
the native network card,


What is there to finish? I have a pc just to the right of me with native 2D, I think 3D but certainly WiFi, Sound and Network. You just need supported hardware. And that cannot be every piece of hardware there is. It's not that long ago that even Apple and MS did not support all hardware.

Quote:

we get users that habituaen and adpatan to Aros,

and then copilais to SMP,

and we go to x86 x64,


I'm struggling with this but I think you mean that after i386 we can all think about moving to x86_64 and SMP. Well, yes, I guess that would be the plan.

Quote:

and at this point:
the native Aros emulates other operating systems.
paolo a vm ware for Aros as thought about that?


I doubt that Aros is ever going to be able to emulate Windows or MacOS or well, much in the way of other OS to be honest. Apart from Amiga through a UAE variant?

Quote:

I have a rasberry pi3,
waiting for this list to be compiled,
another friend of mine also waits !.

you have to solve things!
and then jump to Intel i9.

I do not think it's too much to ask?


I'm lost here - I think we all know that it would be nice to support allsorts of things. i9 isn't one of them however. As far as I know, an i9 doesn't need anything special over what an i3, i5 or i7 does. Does it?

Is it too much to ask? Well, there's YEARS of work in what you've just listed. I guess you probably should get started and keep everyone up to date on your progress?

Actually, I need to just clarify what I said about Elementary OS before it encourages lots of people to go off and install it for running hosted! There is a bit of an issue with it in that it uses some of the same 'Meta' keyboard shortcuts as Aros and I've yet to find a workaround. For example <R-Aros><W> for a new shell doesn't work because gnome has it, even when unassigned. Also makes saving a file difficult from the keyboard.

Need to work out if there is a way to get Gnome to release these shortcuts for a specific application.

Are we talking about someone that wants to write a piece of software that runs on Aros, or someone that wants to help develop Aros itself?

Two very different things.

Also, even if the answer is "write a piece of software that runs on Aros" the pre-requisites are going to be pretty wide and varied without answering the next question which is going to be...

What do you want to develop? (Game, command line tool, etc.)

Just wanted to say thanks for this. I've used it as a quick and concise reference a few times over the last week or so.

I also wanted to add that under Ubuntu and probably most distro's that use aptitude, for the older version of flex, before downloading and installing manually, see if there is a package available called 'flex-old' for me on Ubuntu 17.10 and Elementary OS v0.41 there was 'flex-old' and it gave the compatible version without any messing about.

Also, Elementary OS v0.41, being based on Ubuntu 16.10, is a good base "out of the box" to start from. GPerf is also a compatible version, as is GCC.

The only downside with Elementary is that the next version (5.0) is due to land relatively soon I think and then I guess it's back to all bets are off time. Will need to test a fresh install in VMWare before upgrading.

I forgot that it does this under ABI_v1 as well!

Yes, so i need to pull my finger out and work out why my environment is so unstable. That's kind of a blocker on anything and everything at the moment.

I have VMWare and a USB-C HDD at the ready, I just need time now.

It is my intention to setup an ABI_v0 build environment so that I can backport the keyboard map that I did to it but right now I still have real problems with hosted full stop so I need to cure those issues first.

Once I've got a usable environment I can look into debugging it myself. Having looked through the code for the input prefs, I'd say t looks manageable and might be a task I could cope with. Right now life is also getting in the way as well however!



[EDIT] Oh, PS: Thank you for still looking into it even!

VAT / sales tax is a pain in the butt! But sadly like any other tax it's a fact of life. Perhaps I shouldn't have posted it here, especially since it's not relevant to everyone? Sorry for making more work.

Anyway, even with those things on top, it's still a bargain. And it does happen sometimes that things come through with no charge :)

I think the main thing that I'm lacking is not something that can run Aros, but more something that can run it without the fan going into meltdown the minute I start to stress it. That's what the Aspire one ZG5 feels like to me. A very nice platform but one that get's stressed at the slightest chance.

Anyway, I will shut up now!
