Starcraft on Pinebookpro Manjaro (aarch64)

Lately Im not updating this blog too much, so if anybody wants to follow some fresh randomness – please check https://twitter.com/astr0baby

Added a few HOWTOs for the Pinebookpro here in case anybody is interested

Age of Empires II – http://45.76.81.249/Pinebook64/pinebook-pro/GAMES-HOWTO/openage/

– the code is still work-in-progress but the game is partially playable

Might and Magic 3 – http://45.76.81.249/Pinebook64/pinebook-pro/GAMES-HOWTO/vcmi/

Starcraft 1 – http://45.76.81.249/Pinebook64/pinebook-pro/GAMES-HOWTO/starcraft/

Game is playable on 800×600 resolution without crashes, on larger I have observed crashes during structure build animation.

All the above links are ASCII friendly and really usable in console browsers like Lynx, Elinks

    Not on Twitter so hijacking the comments to ask you a question. I see you’re doing a lot of m1, could you please try AXPBOX and openvms on the m1? If it compiles and if it runs maybe faster, benchmark?

      for OpenVMS only axpbox or es40 sims are only opensource solutions I know of capable to run OpenVMS (axpbox does not build on the M1 and I have not yet tried es40) – AXPBOX might have issues on the M1 since there is no way how to run 32bit stuff on the M1 (except running the whole CPU simulator like qemu-system-i386 -> which I have not yet tried)
