Post in this thread IF
you have an idea to add that is not listed.

PM me IF
you are working on one of these ideas and want your name next to it.

This list will be updated about once every few weeks (since development has slowed somewhat)

good ideas! another great app for the x-fi2 would be an implementation of the ScummVM! the c++ source is avaible online so i think it wont be so hard to translate it in x-fi2 LUA. I'd love to play monkey island on my creative :D

Ed_Fandago 01-02-2010 06:02 PM

Oh boy! ScummVM on the creative would be incredibly awesome!

ZaPx64 01-04-2010 12:02 PM

I don't think that's possible unless we find the boot sector and overwrite it. Overall it's a nice idea to present your thoughts / ideas for more apps. Maybe I'm gonna realize some of them (in the next few month? I really don't write programs for that player too often :D)
A kind of notepad would be cool indeed, since it would enable us to write apps while we're on the move ;)


kushndonuts 01-06-2010 07:35 PM

I found a site with a ton of PSP lua games. Maybe the lua code could be modified to run on the xfi2

Heres the link: http://psp-news.dcemu.co.uk/psp-lua-games.shtml

you have to register on their site first to download any of them though

badazzmofo 01-06-2010 10:06 PM

i think the most logical choice would be the first ever video game...pong

pong in lua:

you can find the sound effects by searching for 'pong' at:

badazzmofo 01-06-2010 10:12 PM

also, a pedometer using the accelerometer as input.

kushndonuts 01-07-2010 08:21 PM

a pedometer would be a great idea considering you can still listen to music while running apps

Olley 01-07-2010 08:30 PM

If the accelerometer is any good a level or angle finder would be worth having.

ThievingSix 01-07-2010 11:26 PM

The accelerometer is sensitive enough and has x,y,z axis. We just have to wait for the SDK which comes out soon.

Les23 01-10-2010 11:24 AM

hi i'm new in this forum and i would like to know if someone has other funny\useful applications


erik dankmeijer 01-10-2010 12:12 PM

MAZE GAME its a funny game
it can be played on some mobile tel
why not on the X FI 2

badazzmofo 01-10-2010 05:25 PM

i see that pong is in alpha state thanks to bzbbb, so atari games are a go for the xfi2.

the next step i think would be missile command. it's a great atari game where you protect your cities from russian missiles (or terrorist missiles, if you will). when you lose all your cities, the world falls into a decade of nuclear winter, everyone is dead, the end.

heres the full description: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Missile_Command

heres a glide version of it: http://www.cc.gatech.edu/~carlson/pe...e_command.html

it is also presently available for the iFags as an app. if you google around, you can find the torrent for it.



Diddykong13 01-15-2010 03:21 AM

Could someone try to make a breakout style game, like the one found on the Blackberry... I might have a go at making it myself when the SDK comes out, but if somone could make one in the mean time that would be awesome :P

Habhome 01-19-2010 04:51 PM

I'd definitely be interested in a note-taking app.
Other than that maybe the "Winterbells" game? Though from what I can deduce from the lagging in Pong by touching the screen all the time it might be hard to get it responsive enough.

bzdbbb 01-19-2010 05:07 PM


lagging in Pong
What lagging? :P Version 1.4 has no lag thanks to climaviel and I. And that game is kinda kwl, might be hard to make work on a small screen though...

Les23 01-19-2010 05:49 PM

pong is getting better and better, instead boink has great problems of responsiveness, sometimes you have to touch more times the same smile to get it work, but i suppose is a matter of hardware not script

i tried the newest version just now at http://www.mediafire.com/?ujm0cwzzzin and i see you have the sound effects now but the lag is still there.

the paddle lags about a centimeter behind my finger.

also, the home button doesnt work right anymore when playing pong.

great game otherwise

bzdbbb 01-20-2010 11:14 AM


the paddle lags about a centimeter behind my finger.
Deliberate so its possible to lose :P


the home button doesnt work right anymore when playing pong.
It takes you back to the menu.. where pressing it again quits :P

rplacido 01-23-2010 07:38 AM

i think a very nice game to create would be the helicopter game. is very simple and addicting!
It already exists for the iphone why not for X fi 2?

heres the game http://www.baixakijogos.com.br/jogo-....php?jogo=6573
