    why
    If you don't know what OpenRCT2 is, it's a project that's making Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 Open source https://openrct2.org/ And since i keep seeing "Without the source code, it's impossible(or very hard) to port a game without the source code to the 3ds, why not have someone try to port this gem? it's open source, well.. as open source as it can get at this stage

    I've looked around, and some people have been trying to go at it, but most of the threads are abandoned, or snipped out
    I would want to try, but i know less than nothing about 3ds development, and anything involving making homebrew for any platform.. for that matter

    EDIT: if someone does get working on this, i could test it, as i have an N3DS, O3DS, and RCT2 on steam that i could use the base files with

    I'd say it's probably possible considering it builds into a full Linux executable, but it would be a lot of work to make it deal with 3DS screens I'd wager, Not impossible though.

    EDIT: Also uses SDL, so you'd have to make it render straight to the 3DS's framebuffers.

    Wait, doesn't OpenRCT2 still depend on some of RCT2?

    Yeah, but prboom needs doom, whatever that quake homebrew is needs quake and duke3d needs duke nukem 3d. I don't see too much of an issue

    I'm pretty sure they finally have it to the point where it doesn't considering you can build it for OSX and Linux.

    I cant speak on specifics of this subject, or offer assistance, since its way out of my league.

    I just wanted to say I NEED this in my life.
    RCT2 to-go, handheld style, has always been a dream of mine.

    Nope. Installed it last night. Still requires an installation of RCT2.

    Oh, I thought he meant DLLs like it used to be, but I guess it's highly likely they still use existing RCT2 assets.

    It does, it installs to the rct2 folder and replaces the exes and whatever
