    Dosbox Problems

    Mmmh suspiciously, I can map the dpad to down, right and up keys, but it doesn't work with left (in Ultima VI). Does anybody have an idea to tackle the problem? :)

    Pnds And Recipes

    So I've decided to bite the bullet and I setup a clone of openpandora.oe.git at https://github.com/tramboi/OpenPandora-Community I just created 2 recipes for Hatari and Vice, and I will make more. Anybody who'd like to contribute recipe patches is welcome, as I'm new at this packaging method :)...

    Beta Midi Installer

    Hi guys. How does this work? I thought timidity should be launched as a server to get a midi device, so I don't get what the scripts do. I see no timidity process. I'd love to make it work in Dosbox if someone can help me! Cheers, Tramb

    Pnds And Recipes

    Thanks for the discussion, guys. I agree to the points that devs shouldn't be forced to write recipes, as PNDs is the condoned package method. opkg users still can write recipes for their favorite apps without bothering the porter. Basically, I'd just want to have word from the team that if...

    Pnds And Recipes

    Yet the apps packaged in PNDs can access system-wide .so. BTW: No "actual benefit", your "perceived benefit"... please try not to be judgmental for the sake of the discussion. Yet a vast majority of the ported apps available as PNDs are not in the opkg repository, so there is no real...

    Pnds And Recipes

    Hi guys, and happy new year! may pandoras reach you if you ain't got yours yet. I have installed my OS on a big flash card and I can't help to notice that few Pandora apps play nice with openembedded. Why? Because of the emphasis on PND format. Which is ok for people who have their OS in NAND...

    Release Gargoyle For Pandora - Interactive Fiction / Text Adventure Package

    By the way, for those who have original Infocom .dat files, rename them to .z5 if you want Gargoyle to work.

    Release Gargoyle For Pandora - Interactive Fiction / Text Adventure Package

    Now this is exactly what the Pandora is for :) I tried it but it didn't work because I didn't rename my Infocom .dat files to .z but now I know! Many thanks skeezix (and Pickle) for all these early ports. Where do you put all your source trees? I'd love to try a bit of update and compile stuff...

    Minimal Gaming Os Possible?

    What we need is not more girls, but more Pandora consoles shipped to us.

    Minimal Gaming Os Possible?

    This is a sensible thing to do, I'd say, since Prometheus has a Pandora. Seducing her and stealing it from her is totally on my "100 ways to get my Pandora at last" list. Just before "building a time machine to order 15 minutes before" and "raising an army of vicious bunnies to raid Craig's...

    Games That Rely On Keypad : How?

    Now what would be the good layer to implement diagonals with confirmation for keypad? In each emulator? In a Pandora libSDL extension?

    Games That Rely On Keypad : How?

    One thing I just thought about, for this kind of games, would be a two-phase keypad. Let me explain: You keep the DPAD pushed in a direction, e.g. NW. Nothing happens. The event is only sent when you press another button with the other hand. Seems to me this would be perfect for all these games...

    Games That Rely On Keypad : How?

    Hi guys, I'm still waiting for my Pandora like many of you, but when it will come home, I intend to do a Goldbox O.D. by playing them all. This and Ultima VI. And many more old games! But some of these games rely heavily on the numeric keypad e.g. Goldbox games. What approach do you think of...

    Return Values, Exceptions And Special Cases

    I agree with you from a CS point of view, but ABIs make returning integers in registers the fastest way to convoy a result, be it a legitimate or an error.

    Return Values, Exceptions And Special Cases

    My advice: don't use object-oriented exceptions on an embedded device. Performance and code bloat: For instance, you are not allowed *at all* to ship a commercial C++ XBox360 game with exception handling. And the Xenon is vastly faster than the Pandora (assuming the Pandora does exist :P )...

    The Pandora can not run Windows (or WINE)

    ...except you definitely want to play oldies on a small screen instead of your big LCD with fancy software scalers : it is much prettier!

    Qemuonarm

    Hi guys, I don't know much about QEMU but I seem to understand from this discussion that its x86 dynamic recompiler is better than Dosbox's for an ARM backend. I'm not interested in Windows, but does this open up a possibility of faster DOS gaming in any way? Cheers

    Announcement: Lord Of The Rings For Panda

    I didn't have much time yesterday night so I created the projects and fixed a few compile errors and posixisms with #ifdef _MSC_VER and #ifdef WIN32. I still have to make it link, I hope I an send you a patch and binaries before this week-end! This was such a great discovery that you had a...

    Announcement: Lord Of The Rings For Panda

    Great stuff Daeglin, I wasn't even aware someone was reverse-engineering LOTR! I cloned your git this morning at home before going to work, I can probably make a build with MSVC8 express and send you patch for the projects tonight or in a few days (mostly depends on some girl stealing my PC or...
