Hi!

I'm trying to compile IVAN and run it on my raspberry pi.
But the game freezes during the loading of the map when the pentagram spins behind the frog.

Any idea why?
Did anyone else try to run it on a RPi?

Awesome project!

It might have something to do with the ARM chipset being functionally different somewhere. Possibly need to modify the source code to make it fully compatible. Not an impossible task, but I personally wouldn't know where to begin.

What operating system are you running on your RPi? What compiler toolchain are you using to build for RPi?

Are you compiling the GitHub source? That has quite a few additional dependencies Try compiling IVAN CVS instead first to see if that works: https://attnam.com/projects/official/IVAN-CVS
IVAN CVS uses SDL1.2, so use the 'libsdl1.2-dev' library on e.g. Raspbian.

Retropie, which is Raspbian underneath.

I would guess the default one. How can I check?

Yes, I realize that now. I saw the INSTALL. I will try compiling the CVS and see if it works. If it does, I will make sure to double check I have all the requirements listed on github and try again.

Thanks!

CVS installation works fine.
What is the difference between that one and the one on github?
