View Full Version : Plz port ONScripter to DS

May 28th, 2007, 09:53
For those that do not know, NScripter is a very popular visual novel game engine, and it would work perfectly on the DS, yet, no one seems to have poretd it.

I tried myself, but I'm not very good, what I do know is the following. ONScripter (an open source version of nscripter) is made with SDL, and SDL has been ported to the DS, so the actual port should not be that difficult.

VNG's like Tsukihime was made with NScriptor. The ONScripter english site (with sources) is at: http://dev.haeleth.net/onscripter.shtml

There are some older builds available at: http://nscripter.insani.org/onscripter.html

I know it's asking a lot, but can someone please make a serious attempt at porting it to the DS? The PSP has a port, but it's not like I'm going to get a PSP to use nscriptor on the road.

edit: Oh, and it might be useful to know that there are several ONScripter demos at: http://www.insani.org/
Note that not everything on the site is based on onscripter, but a lot of it is. Would help in the porting effort etc. As a quick demo, have a look at Hanihani, that is one of the Onscripter demos.
