Another Friday post here. A couple of days ago Derhass made a post about getting Descent 1 and 2 ported to the Raspberry Pi with OpenGL ES. Descent was an amazing game released back in the early 1990’s. It had true 6 range freedom of movement in a spaceship with 3D modeling. An amazing game at the time, and one that I could NEVER beat. I’m in the middle of writing a tutorial on how to patch and compile the game, as well as hosting the binaries themselves.
Today on the Raspberry Pi frontpage is a really cool piece on time lapse photography titled “Painting with light (and a Raspberry Pi)”. The images are really fantastic:
Hope everyone has a good weekend. I’ll be writing the tutorial up this weekend and should have it posted soon. Thanks for the view!
