Toorum's Quest

Post by Kilo » Thu Dec 20, 2018 6:41 pm

I just wanted to start a new thread about this game!

I know that many people worked on this and without making other games bad but THIS game would be worth to get on a single SD Card as an Independent game.

What does this game make it so great?

- gameplay
- many Levels
- Level Editor

We Need more of These games! Games which stores things on the SD for example to get more complex!
The last digit of Pi is 7! I calculated this, as I counted to infinity yesterday!

What bootloader is needed for this game to work? I can start the game, but it doesn't see the other files on the sd card.

Although it can read it's own files I don't think it can actually write to them.

What files are you looking for?

I put _HISCORE.DAT, TOORUMSQ.DAT, and TOORUMSQ.UZE on the sd card and when I start the game I get a message about hi score can't be saved, then a sd error that TOORUMSQ.DAT is not available. The game doesn't start and it goes back to the menu.

Is your SD card formatted as FAT16?

If you use the V.5.0.10 bootloader, also keep in mind that it can use both SDSC and SDHC cards, while most SD card using games work only with SDSC. I think Toorum's Quest isn't anything different in this regard either (so the bootloader can start it, but then the game won't be able to find its files on that card if it is so).

I forget if it was PetitFS or sdSimple. Either way it for sure will only work with SDSC cards. As for file writing, unless I released a broken version or something, I am quite positive it works as I had built, saved, and played a new quest on actual hardware at some point as well as high scores worked.

That worked, a sd card that is not a sdhc formatted fat.
