Help my Video/Audio/Network SDL stuff does not work at all
You are probably using Paeryn's HW-SDL version. You need to initalize SDL_VIDEO at all cost. All other stuff will not work unless you do and you'll get unpredictable results.
I see a cursor in the top left corner
You need to disable the cursor. With SDL, use SDL_ShowCursor(0) after calling SDL_SetVideoMode. If you are using PyGame, you should use pygame.mouse.set_visible(false).
SDL_SetVideoMode is causing unpredicted crashes at startup
SDL_SetVideoMode on the GP2X currently only supports a limited number of parameters.
Known to work is:
SDL_SetVideoMode (320, 240, 16, SDL_SWSURFACE);
- only 320x240
- 8bpp, SDL_SWSURFACE
- 16bpp, SDL_SWSURFACE
- 16bpp, SDL_FULLSCREEN (nkSnes2x uses SDL_FULLSCREEN. --Titousensei 17:27, 30 November 2005 (GMT))
What definitely won't work :
- 16bpp, SDL_DOUBLEBUF | SDL_SWSURFACE
What else works is to be evaluated.
How is the joystick used in SDL?
Where can I find SDL documentation?
What parameters does SDL_Mixer accept?
Are there any other SDKs/APIs?
