    Update Retroarch 1.7.3

    You might give Slackware a try. Slackbuilds for Arm currently support RetroArch 1.7.7 Linux-SWAT is still around in case you run into difficulties or maybe even can assist to install the latest version.

    First Batch Pandora stopepd charging

    One of my Pandora's needs to be connected to power (DC) and USB or it will not charge. Probably a hardware issue, but been doing it for a couple of years and still works fine.

    Welcome to the updated site!

    My initial impression was that forum view is more busy but I am already getting used to it. So looks fine, and the best thing I've noticed is that it is very responsive (Firefox, Ubuntu). Played around with some other themes but think will keep using default.

    [Netherlands] Can you see flower fields in July?

    You should have to visit before end of may for the flower fields, June is already too late. There are spots where you can then take a picture with huge fields with Dutch windmills on the background. Come back next year ;) Not the same, but if you just like to see some nice flowers and plants...

    Just finalized it on my GP2X F200 :) 83 levels (works fine on Ginge btw). Game does crash sometimes so saving in between is a must. Fun and relaxing game. For anyone who never played it and wants to give it a try:,0,0,0,25,1997

    I need a new device. What is the best choice?

    What I really like are some of the homemade Rasberry Pi handhelds. Unfortunately most of them lack the quality needed. Case is usually not very well executed, gamepad / buttons are also a problem and battery life is lacking. That said, there is a ton of rpi information out there and this could...

    C64 was just an example of an older device still being repaired by enthusiasts or companies. Pandora was still being sold by ED in 2016 so if your LCD or cable died in 2018 that is basically less than 2 years of support. I understand the reasons for that but still, something similar might also...

    You can still repair a C64 from 1982 and get almost all components and even new motherboards. That kind of support is not available for the Pandora. Some of the issues: - The connector on the motherboard for the LCD cable broke off from one of my Pandora's, no motherboard replacement...

    Is there a way to get a LCD cable?

    So it is just a matter of reaching out to companies or individuals and check the costs to make a very low quantity of cables and provide them these drawings? Maybe check on Ben Heck forums for ideas? Non commercial use of the...

    GHZ Pandora can play Netflix with Android (maybe CC and Rebirth too)

    Nice to see it is still working :) You never how for long though.. only one update is needed to break it (seen that on several other 'closed' formats eg. Whatsapp/EverNote/Skype). Kodi 18 should be able to play Netflix as well and might be the best option for long time support...
