    How to run Die Siedler II (The Settlers) ROM from in DosBox EX Ultimate?

    The Software Library for MS-DOS Games offers Die Siedler II. You can play it right in the web browser. Worked just fine on a contemporary Desktop. This runs Dosbox as a WebAssembly app. Also offers a ZIP archive download. Contains no ISO image of the CD. But seems to be the entirety...

    Loading ROMs from a NAS to an emulator running on a Pandora. Is it possible?

    Is this practically possible? Has someone already done it? If so: With what emulators? With which network equipment (Pandora, network devices, NAS device)? Benefits I have in mind: 1) Organize only once centrally and benefit from this on multiple devices. (Multiple Pandoras, or also different...

    Hello after a long time, Some of you may have known me as a very active community member in the early Pandora days. I did a lot of voluntary software testing, evaluations/reviews and user experience design for the community back then. I have not been active in the forums for years now. To...

    Release Pandafe - great launcher - roms & native games as first citizens - finally experiencing it!

    Dear nuhrin, It is really AWESOME — I mean it in the true sense of the word not in the inflationary youth language use — to experience roms and native games both as equalized first citizens!!! This is a true breakthrough in Pandora user experience, now that I had some time since a year or so...

    Easy filesystem sharing between Mac & OpenPandora. HFS+ (hfsplus) sharing without file permission ha

    So far I used FAT32 for the SD card sharing between my Pandora and my Mac. Now comes a point, where I'd like to use symbolic links on the SD card. As hfsplus is supported on the Pandora OS since June 2013, I am trying to figure out the simplest possible way to share a HFS+ formatted partition...

    Were there ever violent Game Boy games?

    The Game Boy games I played and oversaw so far gave the impression, that the GB was quite a child/youth-friendly platform, featuring no graphic violence and gore. Out of curiosity in video game culture, I am asking: Have there ever been violent games for the Game Boy? Original, homebrew? I...

    My satisfaction with the Pandora after owning it for 2 years now

    Hint: Optimal rom layout with Pandafe & PCSX ReARMed

    Circumstances: Pandafe considers the parent of a rom to be its genre. Therefore a rom's associated files (a set consisting of multiple files, i.e. cue&bin) must reside directly within the genre folder, not nested within a rom-folder within the genre folder. Otherwise Pandafe mistakes...

    Touch screen (stylus) input offset in certain software applications ONLY. No hardware issue, but qui

    Over time I realized that certain apps' absolute input (touch input aka stylus) do "catch" a little offset, if you click within some few (or many) unlucky areas. This certainly is a software issue, as the stylus works perfectly accurate on i.e. my XFCE desktop, regardless of wether clicking or...
