One major complaint we had about Sqrxz 2 was: “We like the tunes made by Alexander Wiklund, but we are not able to go further to the next level!”. An important feature has been now added to Sqrxz 2… our all beloved Soundcheck-Option! Listen to all tunes, without playing throughout all levels!
The first updated platform is for Windows (32-Bit; should run on 64-Bit too) and here is the change log:
* v1.10 (January/2016)
– improved file system (old. zda files in /data can be deleted!)
– added soundcheck option
– added ability to change screen effects on the fly (system depending)
– added ability to change screen size without restarting (system depending)
Thanks to Lars Persson (AnotherGuest) making this update possible!
Yet another Retroguru release! Fabio Olimperi was so kind and brought Sqrxz 2 to the wonderful GameCube. As you have already recognized by now, we seem to reverse-release all Sqrxz parts for GameCube, so next up in a few days… the very first part of Sqrxz! For now… enjoy Sqrxz 2!
Three more release for Wii to come from Retroguru, but today we serve you Sqrxz 2 for Wii, ported by Fabio Olimpieri.
Along with all Sqrxz parts, we will be at the 6th Retro-Börse Vienna tomorrow, also presenting Giana’s Return and Xump for the Wii as first release. Thanks to our Wii-Porter Fabio! The homepage might not be updated immediate, so the first-release will remain exclusive for this event in Vienna.
Indiket has made it possible! After two years of Sqrxz 2 we finally do have a Mac OS X port! Required is a Mac with Mac OS X v10.4+ and an Intel processor. Thanks Indiket!
Really a lot of effort has gone into the following video review of the Sqrxz-Quadrology made by Chris/Memories in 8Bit. Check it out and feel free to leave comments. We at Retroguru truly enjoyed it.
Chris of Memories in 8Bit found a bug in the 64-Bit Linux builds of Sqrxz. The issue is fixed now. Downloads available in their sections.
Sqrxz 2 PSP placed 2nd in the “PSP Homebrew Game Competition 2013” organized by FouadtjuhMaster, DashHacks and PSVitaGR. There was the one or other nice game, so if you still love PSP homebrew you may want to check all entries out!
Happy new year 2014 from Retroguru with updated ports of Sqrxz 2 for Dreamcast (Thanks Indiket) and Symbian OS Series 60 & Symbian OS UIQ3 (Thanks AnotherGuest). Get your updates from the download page. The only remaining updates to come yet are for Caanoo, MotoMAGX and OpenPandora.
With lots of effort from Thor Sqrxz 2 now features all enhancements from Sqrxz 3 – basically various screenmodes (coded by Yannick) for devices larger than 320×240. With this there were few other improvements listed a few lines below.
Brandnew Sqrxz 2 ports are for Playstation Portable, NetBSD 5 (x86) and RaspberryPi. PSP by Thor, NetBSD 5 by phx and RaspberryPi by Jum (already approved in the PiStore and free for download!). Not to forget the initial port for the GCW Zero console by zear.
Updates are provided for Amiga OS4 and MorphOS (thanks phx), Linux & Windows & Wiz (thanks Thor). Few more systems are yet to be updated.
* v1.00 (November/2013)
– rewritten frameskip code
– normalized sfx
– fixed configuration saving
– added settings to define screensize (System/OS depending)
– new option to switch between combine up controls with jump or not (this option will come in handy for joystick players only)
changes for devices with a screen equal or larger than 640 x 480:
– scale options: bilinear, antialias and scanlines (Thanks Yannick!)
