Pocket Edition

by jimbo3182 » Post

I think it would be a good idea to have a Minetest Pocket Edition because I used to get really angry when I couldn't play when I went on holiday. Anyone else agree with me?

You could put it on a USB and play it on a laptop, as far as making it run on IPod/Android, Irrlicht (the 3d render) supports those platforms, but i doubt other dependancies supports it, like the SQLite and OpenAL sound.

You are welcome to try

i did a bit of research some time ago. me myself am not a programmer at all, so this didn't help me much, but i know that openal, irrlich support android (or the other way around) and as far as my android experience concerns, sqlite does so as well.

i would be so glad if you did it at least for android!

If I understood what you meant under minetest.net, Github ( https://github.com/celeron55/minetest ) , under src https://github.com/celeron55/minetest/tree/master/src

The same files should be in your version of minetest.

i guess he was just kidding. starting this as a "projekt" for myself. but it isnt that easy ..
as mention above there a several big to do's

- a android openAl working version
- a port for irrlicht to andriod
- a rewriten code, cause there is no 100% c++ for andriod availible.
- a new gui/interface cause most of the android devices dont have keyboard or mouse

further a big point is, that most of the andriod devices dont have the power and memory of the minimal pc version minetest is offert in the current version. so also here is to see how fast this can run later...

a realy big problem for me in the moment is, that the standard andriod devices are not able to write on a external storage, so i can read, but not write, witch makes it hard to guess what kind of space/memory the device can offer.

yes i know this is possible if i root the device, but not everybody can do this or want to do this cause its a matter of garantie for this device.

so who ever start this, i doubt this is done in 1 or 2 month by a single person

Instead of having a smartphone/tablet, buy an unlocked device like a netbook/laptop so that you can run the "normal" Minetest. That works too. ;)

Android is a lot easier to port for. Plus, you can publish an app without the play store (androids equivalent of the app store)
I love exploring minetest worlds :D
If you have a good seed let me know

@irjksomeduc
a lot easier ? then tell me what c++ version you use to port that into android. the sdk for anddroid is mostly in java, all c ports i know for android are dont have full c++ suport
then tell me if there is already a full port for openAL and irrlicht wich supports all shader and sound things which are needed within the minetest code/liberie
there is a big difference to make a small app for play store or to port something like minetest to andriod.

Will 0.0.1 have multiplayer or just single? Will it have 3d player? I'm curious
