This is my port of ledow's GP2X SDL port of Simon Tatham's Portable Puzzle Collection.

ledow was not involved in this endeavor, so please direct any questions to the discussion page and not to him.

The page that was formerly under my profile has been closed since it hadn't been updated in quite some time.


What's new

Version 0.3:

  • Compiled against libogc SVN r4414 / SDL-Wii r95 / STPPC2X r185
  • New game added

Version 0.2:

  • Mouse droppings cleaned up - far less problems now
  • STPPC2X updated to rev 163 - several new games added
  • USB keyboard functionality improved greatly (see below)
  • Custom .ini files (global and per-game config) no longer being dropped in the root of the SD card

Version 0.1:

  • initial release

Known issues

There are bugs, and the documentation sucks, but the puzzles are playable. Main issues are mouse droppings here and there. The music occasionally bleeps and bloops but that's life.

The built-in documentation is a little weak - refer here for the best info until I get around to updating the docs in the app.

Some games are missing in-game help; the files are also missing from the STPPC2X SVN repo.

Screenshots -do- work despite the app complaining whenever you take one.

For some reason, some of the effects aren't working as they should. The *net* game should have smoothly-rotating tiles when they're selected; they don't rotate at all on any Wii build. I don't know if the issue is with SDL-Wii or what - at some point I need to dig a little deeper. Some of the games have 'victory' animations which are also absent.

Debug notes will be kept at the dev page.

Installation

Unzip all to /apps/stppwii and you're good to go.

You will need a wiimote and either a classic controller or USB keyboard.

Music

The music files are huge: get them from here: ledow's site - they are optional of course. Add ".mp3" to the ends of the file names to make them work and copy them to the /apps/stppwii/music folder.

Miscellaneous

You will need to include SDL Wii to build the application.
