Taken 2048 as an example, I have tried unsuccessfully to load it on the real machine from floppy, SD-reader or SF3 USB. It also doesn't work on the CPC.

But it is an exceptional case, other few games don't work for other causes. Some only work on 16 colours, even one only with the  V9990 cartridge, I mean Flappybird.

I still have have not tried all the games, but GameOfLife, Pac-Man and Doom work for me.

I have compiled the 2048 source with the latest Quigs version and now it seems to work. Can you test it?


Edit: the new 2048 can't be closed on the X corner... You can close it from the Task Manager(Start/Security/Task Manager): click on SymbOS Application on the list of Apps and then click on the "End App." button. It is the same like in Windows with Ctl+Alt+Del.

All functionality seems to work fine, except this (wrong res definition?).

Yes, I've seen it, I think the picture is like the icon but printed as 16 colours on the 4 colours mode..... because on 16 colours the Icon looks exactly like that.... On Quigs a game can be set to work on several resolutions/number of colours.

Sorry, I am not so Quigs skilled to fix that...

I can check other games now.

I have only recompiled it with the latest Quigs version. But then It didn't allow me to close the application, so I added the close event.

Trebmint, creator of Quigs, says that a lot of  apps need to be really finished, 2048 and Chess two of them. He says that now Canvas/Sprite working they will gain new impulse creating little games.

There is some movement now on SymbOS, as a new developer nicknamed prevtenet is pressing new features.
