    Case closed?

    The Happy Dragon. Sounds like a nice Chinese restaurant. Now all I need to do is sell enough games to be able to afford a Pyra then I can be as happy as ED will be :)

    Case closed?

    No matter how disappointed some people might feel. I have never seen ED as happy as when playing with those shoulder buttons. Sorry about the lack of colours in the screen grab, when I resized it I forgot I was still working in 256 colour non dithered mode for my game. Doh! (_8(|) :)

    Thanks Eight Bit. I shall give that a go.

    @Eight Bit. OMG you're a genius. I'd forgotten about that. Movement is still a bit ropey but I can at least use the nub as a mouse again! @xnopasaranx Glad you like it. Lunar Lander and Asteroids were among my favourite arcade games as a Teenager and Nest lander is sort of a cross between the 2...

    @ levi I'll try a swapfile first before I create a swap partition :) If it works, great, if not I'll see if I get a boost in performance via a dedicated partition. @torpor Not a bad name suggestion :)

    @TeDaDeS Right, I need to sort out a larger swap file and try again. Busy working on the game at the moment but I might see if I can get on it this afternoon. @ levi 2GB Strewth rules have changed over the years. I'll try a Gig maybe. Mmmm tries to remember how to use Gparted ;) @ rygD Indeed. I...

    Yeah I ran with 128MB swapfile but it was almost unplayable. I feel a 512MB pandora might have a chance.

    Has anyone tried this on a 512MB pandora yet? I'm interested to know if it runs. It's choppy and almost unplayable on my CC pandora but I'm guessing memory is a big issue on a CC.

    The time limit is only there for bonus points anyway but the levels get a lot harder. Level 7 and 8 in the demo give an idea of what's to come. I thought it was too cruel to have a time limit that stopped you finishing the levels. Equally, harder skill levels have less time available.

    Thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately I can't compile natively to Linux. Construct 2 wraps it's HTML5 in a JS layer from what I can tell. I'm not a great coder hence me using Construct 2 in the first place :) As for a level hub, I really want to keep to the arcade formula from back in the day...

    Hi guys. I've not posted here in a while but I've been keeping an eye on the Pyra's progress. Some of the old timers here will remember me :) So, what have I been doing with my time? I've started an Indie games studio, Clockwork Hippo Games I've been making a retro style arcade game that's...

    Silence!

    Blimey things must be getting near completion. A lesser spotted BaDToaD appears. Nice one ED you are the man!

    Gaming trends or something not related to LEDs (Split from reflect LED thread)

    I buy most of my games from gog. With so many old gems out there I find no need to play modern titles. I am currently enjoying thief gold and the first unreal and always have one mod on the go for never winter nights one or two. I am playing through Baldurs gate reloaded on nwn2 at the moment...

    Pandoralive : Where do we go from here?

    I have a suggestion for the name. Keep Pandora alive but also have Pyra on fire. Something like: Pandora Alive / Pyra On Fire. Or if you prefer Pyra On Fire / Pandora Alive. After all ED has PYRA / Pandora at the top of these very pages.

    So, what's the actual state of the software?

    This is one of the most important questions ever asked about the Pyra. How does it sound is totally different to how does it perform on paper too:)
