    Brief Answers to the Big (Pyra) Questions

    Let's mark that down as one of the most useful posts ever! GFlops don't tell the whole story of course, but it does help add to it. As a little aside, I'm playing Mario 3D All Stars, and checking out Mario Galaxy for the first time. What strikes me is that, while the game is not super modern by...

    Brief Answers to the Big (Pyra) Questions

    Cool! I'm not very programmery, so I am quite beholden to any game engine and its capabilities (likely godot in gles2 mode). But that said, I am super interested in experimenting with the graphics capabilities to see what's the prettiest image I can get on the hardware, while running at a...

    Brief Answers to the Big (Pyra) Questions

    Alright, here's a silly question: Regarding general graphical capabilities, which console would the Pyra be most similar to?

    Pyra Game Dev

    I'm not the most technical person, but my understanding is that with 2.79 will be the last version to be able to use the GPU? 2.8 on might be able to be run in software. I don't have high expectations for Blender, but my hope is that 2.8 can run well enough to do the occasional mesh edit, like...

    Pyra Game Dev

    Godot currently has a GLES2 back end :) I hoping it's possible to get a port running on the Pyra. Looking forward to seeing what kinda visuals can get squeezed out of it.

    PICO-8

    @ptitSeb is compiling SDL 2 for HardFP possible on the Pandora? If it is, I would like to give that a shot.

    Decent Game Engine

    I know it's 2D, but I recommend trying Pico8 at the start. http://www.lexaloffle.com/pico-8.php You'll learn a lot of basics working with that software. Blender, also has a game engine built in. It uses a logic brick system for the game's logic. Python can also be used.

    PICO-8

    Thanks for the recommendation, that certainly helped get things moving, at least the Pandora could try to run the binaries. So, Pico8 comes in 2 binary flavors, one compiled statically (doesn't need SDL2) and another dynamically loads libraries. After installing the "libbcmhost-shim" package...

    PICO-8

    Gah! I love Pico8! I'm dying to get this to run on my Pandora. Has anybody tried it? I've been trying all day to get it to run, looks like there are libraries missing, but I am starting to get out of the comfort of the kiddie pool here. It would be fantastic if someone else could give it a...

    Paper Wars

    Hey guys! Sorry for not jumping in immediately, I wanted to take some time and think about how best to respond. Ha, thats a good place to start ;) I understand that sentiment. I am the only person to blame for this game getting stalled. I am also at fault for not recognizing my own...

    SEGA Saturn info in Japanese?

    I dont understand Chinese, but I am guessing based on the content and context that he is refuting claims that the Saturn can't do transparencies and is inferior to the Playstation with regards to 3D performance. He appears to discuss the strengths of the two video chips, VDP1 and VDP2, and...

    Emulator brings x86 Linux apps to ARM devices

    I know I'm way out of my league here and have nothing of value to contribute ... BUT ... earlier on I saw mention of Dwarf Fortress ;) If portable Dwarf Fortress were a reality (no matter how slow) my life would be complete.
