Jump n' Bump (as a Port?)



  • is anyone familiar with this game? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jump_'n_Bump

    it's a really fun little game, quite similar to smw. i used to play it all the time with friends on linux using an old laptop.
    there's a package already built, it can be installed with:

    sudo apt-get install jumpnbump jumpnbump-levels
    

    only problem is, i can't get it to play with sound -- it will segfault. it seems like a really good candidate to add to the retropie Ports collection, but would take some programming knowledge that is way out of my league.



  • @chipsnblip I made a scriptmodule for this game and is now merged in RetroPie :)

    You can find it in the Experimental Packages. It installs additional levels and has a launcher menu to select levels and start net play with remote computers too. The sound crash you mention is also fixed.
    Note that you will need a keyboard to use this game, even though it supports gamepads. This is because curerntly it is not possible to exit the game without a keyboard (needs ESC or F12).



  • this is great news, thank you @hhromic! i was very pleased to see your pull request a few days ago on github. will try to test it out this weekend.

    we still play it from time to time, most recently on a soft-modded PS2. it's just one of those dumb little things that deserves to be ported & included on every possible platform :)



  • @hhromic, thanks again. i was finally able to run some tests, and everything worked as expected. i was not able to test netplay though. one small request, if possible, could gore be enabled by default (nogore = 0)? it's been a while, but i believe having gore on might be the game's standard default (at least on the linux build).

    excellent work and thanks again!

  • Hey @chipsnblip thanks for the positive feedback! I'm glad you are having fun with this game :)
    I've been a bit busy so sorry for the delay replying.

    one small request, if possible, could gore be enabled by default (nogore = 0)? it's been a while, but i believe having gore on might be the game's standard default (at least on the linux build).

    Yes, the game upstream has gore enabled by default. I decided to disable this in the scriptmodule by default thinking that RetroPie might be used by kids (due to its "cute bunnies" premise). However I might have over-thought it too :)

    If @BuZz doesn't have any particular opinion about it, I can send a PR to not force gore on first-install.
