Hi,

I updated Albion to version 1.2.0

The big change is using WildMIDI library instead of SDL_mixer for playing MIDI files. It sounds better and can play more than one MIDI stream simultaneously.

Download it here:
Repo
Archive (not yet updated to latest version)


Changes:
* MIDI playback using WildMIDI (old MIDI playback using SDL_mixer can be set in the configuration file)
* minor bug fixes

Edit (06.11.2011):
Albion was updated to version 1.2.1 with the following changes:
* fix using WildMIDI when not using alternative SDL library (by notaz)
* show the Readme in the Documentation submenu

Edit (09.03.2014):
Albion was updated to version 1.3.0 with the following changes:
* removed SDL library by notaz from pnd (newer version is in the firmware)
* newer version of WildMIDI library
* MIDI playback using BASSMIDI (uses soundfonts for playing MIDI)
(can be set in the configuration file, default is WildMIDI)
* reworked xmi2midi conversion, fixing minor bugs in the process
* configuration editor (doesn't support changing button mappings)

I really should try this game, it looks and sounds interesting...and somehow the Story remembers me onto James' Camerons "Avatar" ;)

Many thanks for the update. Albion seems like it'll be a great game for the Pandora, if only I can force myself to sit down and actually play it for more than five minutes.

Yeah... my biggest problem with the Pandora is is that I find it soooo hard to commit to one title. There's too much choice!

You can use a soundfont with BASSMIDI to play music and it should play nicer with TV out (because it uses the SDL in firmware), but other than that you probably won't notice anything different.

BTW are you still playing the same game ? I think you started playing it 3 years ago.

Yes, I am... I only find rarely time to continue playing :\

Just saw that there's a native interpreter in the works as well:

https://github.com/f.../commits/master

 

Apparently, he also got a GLES version on ARM running as well.

I'm aware of the project. But as with similar projects, the question is when and if the project will be finished. Also the project has high requirements (the GLES version requires OpenGL ES 3.0) so it's questionable whether it would run on Pandora.

And while Albion is great, I always find myself playing Ambermoon instead :)

Don't get me wrong: thanks for the port!

For some reason when I try to save a game, I can't enter a name for the save. I tried the physical keyboard and the virtual keyboard, but nothing happens.

 

Does anyone have any similar problems or ideas?

Are you using the latest firmware (1.60) ?

 

What about when talking with someone ? There's an option where you can write what you want to talk about. Does the keyboard  work there ?

Yes, latest firmware.

 

I've noticed that when I first start the game by clicking continue, if I then immediately go into the save game dialogue I can type, but if I do so later after playing a while I can't.

 

Very strange, but at least the continue option works.

Love your Albion port very much. Very thoughtfull and intuitive controls. Made a Hd file for Ambermoon and it works perfect on my Pandora with a usb mouse. In my opinion those Thalion games are the best Rpgs ever made.
