#7416 closed feature request

WINCE: Controls and Interface-Orientation on Smartphones

Reported by: SF/witethewolf Owned by: SF/knakos
Priority: normal Component: Port: WinCE
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


Controls: The currently set control keys on Smartphones are not good. It would be best, if the users could set their preferred keys themselves. Especially support for the phone-integrated controls stick would be appreciated by the smartphone user community.

Interface-Orientation: ScummVM comes up on the phone's display in landscape view, so the phone must be rotated 90° clockwise. An option to allow the user to decide which direction he/she prefers to rotate the phone would allow right handed people easier playing.

Regards, -Wite-

PS: Is it possible to have the screen texts (especially in adventures like DOTT and Indiana Jones) displayed a little more readable?

Regarding the controls, the users can already personnalize them (go into options/keys)

Regarding the orientation, it's possible to do this, but it'll introduce a new parameter in the SDL port video initialization (to know what's the orientation) and possibly break other things. I'm trying not to touch this part too much :) VGA devices have already made things a lot more messy

Regarding the text size, resizing it will probably cause other problems in the games, such as, not being able to know if the whole text can be drawn, and where to display it. Since you're talking about talky games, I think the games are more enjoyable on a Smartphone if you just disable the subtitles and play with full voices.

As I understand, this already was implemented, right?

What is the status of this item?

comment:4 by SF/witethewolf, 18 years ago

So to get it right. There won't be a configurable rotation direction for the screen?

The 0.9.0 pre-release build adds inverse landscape support.
