    68K hybrid emulation

    Hello! Its a long time since I've been on the Pandora forums! Back in the day I ported the atari800 emulator and gemrb and stuff. Anyway I'm now mostly playing with FPGAs. I recently tried to add Amiga hybrid emulation to the MiSTer. This is when we use the FPGA for the main system hardware...

    Toddler Pandora addiction!

    Has anyone run into Toddler pandora addiction problems?! My 2 1/2 year son discovered it and started drawing squares on the screen with the stylus. He had such a meltdown when I took it away since I couldn't supervise him with it! 'Want the Pandora, Want the Pandora, Pandora', for about an...

    Anyone into cars as well? Pandora dashboard?

    One of the guys I used to work with left his full time job to create a programmable car plugin (see link)... I'm impressed at anyone brave enough to go out and build their own hardware. I'm just a wage slave who sits coding C++ all day... for now:-) He is very thorough so I think the device will...

    More FPGA spam - dual Arm V9 and Cyclone V

    Just saw that Terasic have released the Sockit board based on Altera's Cyclone V with embedded Arm V9. They are soooo awesome, would love a Pandora 2 with one of these. Shame its not going to happen - very expensive and I guess take too much power. But still would be awesome...

    iPhone emulation scene - dead?

    I was hoping to play some emulators on my iphone once the icp2 is out. Eg genesis4iphone, gb4iphone. I just tried them on my iphone 5 and the sound is terrible on them! Are there any workarounds? I expected the ios emulation scene to be bigger than the Pandora scene given their popularity... The...

    Gamma settings for brightness and contrast

    I'd like to use the gamma settings for in-game brightness/contrast. Currently the op app for setting gamma only has a gui mode. So I'm wondering: i) Is there a way of setting gamma from userspace without that app? ii) Is there any potential for damaging the LCD with bad gamma settings...

    Is anyone making/selling TV out cables?

    I'd quite like to test TV out with things I've ported. Is anyone making/selling these or the ext breakout boards in Europe? Or is there any progress on them since the August update? I remember some threads about this, but I can't search for them since tv and out are less than 4 letters and "tv...

    Cross-connected keys on new board

    Just got the main board in my Pandora replaced. The replacement has some keyboard issues. If I press '4' then '4' and '8' appear. Similarly there are other pairs of keys that duplicate it other - such as 'r' and 'i'. Is this likely something simple like misaligned key mat or more likely a...

    Pandora hold button intermittent + silver cylinder

    My old CC Pandora has developed a fault. It seems to be going very slow/becomes unresponsive intermittently. I ran the keyboard test and found that hold appears to trigger randomly at times + sometimes other keys seem stuck. I took it apart to have a look and found a loose cylindrical...

    Suppress keyboard from running commands in terminal!

    I noticed that when I run the program I'm developing from pnd_run after I quit it runs anything I've typed in the terminal. In the app I poll the keys using EVIOCGKEY on evdev. Anyway if I happen to type ls+enter its not bad, but if I happen to type 'rm -rf /' then its not good! I want to...

    8-bit clut mode

    Hi, I'd like to use OMAP_DSS_COLOR_CLUT8 8-bit colour mode. I tried setting it with fbset, but it does not seem to understand 8bpp:(. I checked the omapfb kernel code (from a random version I have at home) and I see that it validates the params vs a very small set of modes which do not include...
