WINCE: Controls and Interface-Orientation on Smartphones

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


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.

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.


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, 14 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.

This is feature request. So status is 'Closed', Resolution
