A Vero 4K home theater box running OSMC and Kodi uses 855 meg of RAM at idle for comparison. (2gb model)

Do you know of Descent and Descent 2? Are they opensource? They required joysticks.



I remember playing those games back in 1995 and 1996 without joysticks.
Source codes for Descent and Descent2 are available here:

Personally, I've never tried those games on Box86 or Wine but will ask to my team mates if any of them ever tried them before on RK3399 or RPI4.

Thanks for sharing. If Kodi were running as standalone application, I'm pretty sure would to be in the same ballpark ram consumption area but it's running on top of a full featured Linux desktop OS. Vero 4K device is a 4K-dedicated OSMC/Kodi media player, which is almost double in price compare to a RockPro64 2Gb, so it's not a an apples to apples comparison here.  We're getting there. Smile

I think the first command and conquer might have had its code released as well.
I prefer games like C&C and Descent. There's a lot of first person shooters on your list. Not much of a variety, but I don't know all the titles. These two titles stand out in that regard. They are completely different from your list. Perhaps that would give you a bigger fan base?
I'd like to see descent remastered.

Looks like you haven't even browse all our videos about retro gaming from our youtube channel. We have some early videos about those games running in Rpi4 back in 2019. Currently in 2021, thanks to latest Panfrost developments and a stronger hardware, they run much better on RockPro64(RK3399/T864 CPU/GPU) than on Fruity boards(BCM2711/ VideoCoreVI CPU/GPU)

I bought the RP64 for Kodi, not gaming. If you want me to become interested in gaming, please include titles I like.
I'm giggling. After looking for Descent earlier (It's on steam too) I was trying to think of the name of an even older title I used to play. When I found it, I found it was only written for the TRS80 Color Computer. lol Sinistaar by Sundog Systems. I do research games, when I like them.

"Two, if you do have this in your library and want to run on Linux, DXX-Rebirth is a rewrite of the original engine which runs flawlessly on Linux. You can take the data files from the Steam installation and plug them into D2X, no Wine or DOSbox required."
From steam's discussion site
"https://steamcommunity.com/app/273580/discussions/0/2789370076130344345/"

From DXX-Rebirth readme
"0. Introduction:
================

"DXX-Rebirth is based on the late D1X and D2X source ports (which, in turn, were based on the original
Descent source and LDescent). **The Rebirth Team has spent a lot of time working to improve the source code
by fixing old bugs and adding some improvements,** while always staying true to our philosophy: Keep it Descent!
It is the goal of DXX-Rebirth to keep Descent 1 & 2 alive and well, updating them for modern PCs while also
keeping them the same games you remember playing back in 1995!"

Apparently, it's better than the original release using DXX-Rebirth. Bugs have been squished! I remember some bugs from back in the day. They made some bosses extremely hard to kill. Plus LAN & Multiplayer. I don't remember if these are new features, or not.
For your consideration.

Here's a video of Command and Conquer: Generals running on RK3399 hardware + TwisterOS Armbian + BOX86 + Panfrost. Performance should be similar when use with a RockPro64 4GB version.

Stunt-Rally 2.26 for RK3399 hardware. Tested it on RockPro64 4GB and RockPi4C.

Download it from:
https://github.com/superpowter77/games_scripts.git

Instructions:
- Upon download, make it executable:
chmod a+x stunt-rally.sh

- Build it:
./stunt-rally.sh

- Install it:
cd /stuntrally/build/
sudo make install

after that you have a shortcut under games


Many thanks to Monka from the TwisterOS Development team

Does Retroarch work with online updater? Or is it possible to download/use some cores?
