Would it be possible for AM2R to be ported to another system?

That would require a complete rewrite of it, because it's using Game Maker.

I know there's a WIP Android port done and working already, but no word for more ports.

EDIT Unless there's a way to make a WINE like program to read Game Maker code, it's very unlikely to happen.

Well, the game was made using Game Maker Studio, and that one offers options to port it to a shit ton of systems, including Mac, Linux, Android, Xbox One, PlayStation vita, PlayStation 4 (I think even PS3).

Interestingly enough, Game Maker Studio doesn't offer any way to make games for 3DS nor Wii U.

It would be really nice to have AM2R on the vita. Currently I'm playing super metroid on my vita. It's amazing. Why doesn't nintendo realize that we want more games like this?

So this is still being worked on?
Is that guy making a code from scratch or did he take the source code from the previously released Metroid 2 Remake PoC made for the 3DS?
Well I'm not sure exactly. The last I heard the creator of am2r hadn't released the source code for it. I don't know why he's sitting on it. There's no point in not releasing it. So someone else could port his game to another system. I'm not sure about PoC though.

actually, there is a source code for am2r, someone on reddit made a post about it. im sure if someone took the time to (if not done already), the game could be ported to another console (EDIT: just realized the guy above me posted the comment, only read the top page comments)

  • Jayro @ Jayro:
    Eventhough the New 3DS XL is more powerful, I still feel like the DS Lite was a more polished system. It's a real shame that it never got an XL variant keeping the GBA slot. You'd have to go on AliExpress and buy an ML shell to give a DS phat the unofficial "DS Lite" treatment, and that's the best we'll ever get I'm afraid.

    The phat model had amazingly loud speakers tho.

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Jayro, I don't see whats so special about the DS ML, its just a DS lite in a phat shell. At least the phat model had louder speakers, whereas the lite has a much better screen.

    They probably said "Hey, why not we combine the two together and make a 'new' DS to sell".

    It's a DS Lite in a slightly bigger DS Lite shell.

    It's not a Nintendo / iQue official product, it's a 3rd party custom.

    Nothing special about it other than it's more comfortable than the Lite
