True, and exaclty why SDL 2.x+ and OpenGL should be prioritized, if we ever get some developers behind.

With all respect, I disagree with your opinion.

There are excellent PC games like
Command and Conquer, Baldurs Gate, Diablo, Star Craft, Heroes of Might and Magic 3 ...

Those games match perfectly the powers that we have.

On the other hand there are games using OpenGL which were coded under the basis of having 4 GHz machine with 4 GB memory and a 512 MB GFX card.

I believe having OpenGL will give many games running bad and only few good ones.

Totally agree with Gunnar.
Playing Baldur's gate games on Vampire would be awesome!

  maybe you can share your work. milkytracker is included in aros contribs afair, although i dont remember if it currently compiles for amiga-m68k. even though it might need some optimizations for that target, even at cost of few ifdefs around the source.

EXTERNAL LINK  I have cherrypicked the main trunk to retain SDL1.2 while benefiting from latest bugfixes from main-repo. I intend to make a proper fix and do a pull request to the main repo when I'm done. :)

I was meaning to get in contact with you when I noticed you were doing some work with milkytracker on "a week in aros development", but forgot to do so.

The source you're working with is version 0.90.86, the one I'm currently working on is version 1.0.0+!

  Thank you for respect, opinions are to be disagreed and discussed :-)
 
  I love all the games mentioned, and would love to have them on Vamp. Due to dependencies, SDL and OpenGL are long run solutions. Doesnt have to be something big, I see MESA and Warp3D as smaller way towards it already done. Surely, you can think of other priorities, this is from porting perspective.

On pure 2D front OVERKILL! deserves spiritual successor and storyline! EXTERNAL LINK

    I opt for Target Renegade 128k + new enemies, new moves ...
    EXTERNAL LINK   
    Beat Em Up Renegade style!
    PC new edit as goal, Arcade style
    EXTERNAL LINK   
    Some "back influence" like cameo appearance of enemies
    from ... Street Fighter, Cadilacs and Dinosaurous, Final Fight
    and Double Dragons. Hell even from Rise of Robotos, Capital Punishment and Amiga exclusive beat em ups. Some humor and storyline, too ...
   
    Also from Arcade Vigilante saving Madonna >:-) Even arcade Robocop. Hey man, SKINHEADS HAVE TAKEN MADDONA!
    EXTERNAL LINK   
   
    There was Amiga remake?
    EXTERNAL LINK 
 
  2nd best beat em up is ... Prisoners of War, Rambo Style, beat the VC! It would be interesting to be a VC fighter escaping US camp too ... Different eras and combats could be explored.
  Arcade
  EXTERNAL LINK 
  OpenBor should be enough as starter, before real games :-)

This engine (gemRB) would be a perfect Vampire port and would give the opportunity to play baldur's gate 1 and 2 (with all expansions) icewind dale and, planescape torment games.
    EXTERNAL LINK      There is a port for os4 so maybe a 68k port can be feasible
  This is the amiga os4 port:

          Great! What tasks can you take, and we can start the support?
          Once idea worked and something presentable, you can take projects
          to Kickstarter.
   
              Cars n Crashes
       
          Also Chase HQ with best parts of Chase HQ 2 deserves continuation
          and over-arcade quality

          EXTERNAL LINK         
          DGeneration
          EXTERNAL LINK        Now improved EXTERNAL LINK         
          Strategy
       
          Laser Squad with expansions
        on A500, member. Can be enhanced, but keep enemies and expand missions and weapons. Maybe some Xcom and Terror from Deep cameos too EXTERNAL LINK         
  Best Civ is Alpha Centaury, no doubt with expansions
EXTERNAL LINK 
          Colonization EXTERNAL LINK deserves more in-depth, like playing with Indians, more independent nations from other colonizing nations and just US with rebellion, civic wars, wars amongst colonizers etc.
 
  It could include colonization of Africa, Asia etc. with different oponents, goals and smaller quests.

For OpenGL, old versions only get you so far.  Prior to Warp Nova on OS4 there was no shader support for it and not much new stuff worked.  Now with it they use compatibility kludges to run stuff on an OpenGL ES 2.0 wrapper.

As far as SDL is concerned, 1.2.x is software only and alpha blend modes and image rotations got no hardware acceleration on Windows machines.

Version 2.x is better because it requires hardware acceleration regardless of the underlying driver support.  Windows machines still don't use OpenGL anymore because the new SDL wraps Direct3D's proprietary drivers.  If we have a texture mapper, we can use SDL 2 without OpenGL while old SDL games written on Windows require OpenGL for 2d hardware acceleration.

@Fernando Pereira You can edit the amount of support you give. It defaults at 1, but click it to edit.

Maybe I should put up a Patreon for my Milkytracker porting efforts. I am working on porting a Megaman clone over to Amiga68k as well. Currently struggling with endian issues. A little extra beer money in my pocket would always help. ;)
