    Postal has become open source since a week ago, according to major media. How feasible is to port the game on MorphOS? Would love to play the game since I haven't ever touch it on a PC.

    That would be cool! :-) I have never seen Postal "1" so a port would be greatly appreciated! :-)

    But I absolutely loved Postal 2 (played it through several times). The humor! :lol:

    (Postal 3 completely sucked, big time!)
    MorphOS is Amiga done right! :-)
    MorphOS NG will be AROS done right! :-)

    I'd say very feasible, considering there's an OS4 port already.

    Whoa, fast port indeed! Hope we get Postal on MorphOS too.

    I do have a semi-working postal port from a polish friend on morphos irc channel. It works but with a specific Postal anniversary edition released in eastern Europe and many keys from the keyboard doesn't work which makes it very difficult to be played. Author informed me that it looks like a problem from MorphOS SDL2 version and couldn't do anything else to fix them. Hope Itix one day takes care of them and improves our SDL 2.

    I have it working but with some issues of course: What it means that all is rendered in a blue tonality?

    Edit: Nevermind - Changed SDL_CreateTexture to another SDL_PIXELFORMAT

    Few things you say. If there's no output, it is a matter of seeing what Snoopium finds. Half of the problems are not a proper POSTAL.INI configuration (sound freq, for example): I left my own there because the original most likely doesn't work. I have SDL2_0_12 lib in my system.

    Also GoG files are taken from linux: Don't know if they can be used directly without install.

    Obviously it must be Postal.INI since the error clearly states:

    "An error occurred while reading from POSTAL.INI.
    See code A101 in Postal Help for more information"

    Hope it gets fixed. I am also using sources from Windows GOG version.

    What loosely says is "not found files".

    First of all POSTAL.INI needs this inside:

    Code:
    [Realms]
    File = res/levels/postal_plus_realms.ini


    If "postal_plus_realms.ini" is another thing, then up to you to change it. But GoG files has that on res/levels

    and then if there are errors about sound data files.

    Code:
    [Audio]
    DeviceRate = 22050
    PainFrequency = 5
    AudioLanguage = 0


    But I did it already with the provided .INI in the uploaded pack.


    Remember: The first time game is run, a "./PostalPlus" dir is created and the POSTAL.INI file is copied there: It must be a POSTAL.INI before game is started from scratch.

    Those are the same kind of problems I had with a Debian version done with the same sources till I figured out.
