    Maybe interesting news about an open source PowerVR Vulkan driver?

    I stumbled upon this, it seems to be aimed at the 6th gen hardware but maybe it can be altered to work on the 5th gen SGX530/540 too? Something to keep an eye on perhaps? :)

    Sore thumbs

    Hi, just want to mention that, after some prolonged Duckstation action, my thumbs are sore because of the sharp edges of the face buttons and the cross shaped bezel on the dpad which is a little to high imo. Maybe in some future mould itteration it can be changed? I think for now I'm going to...

    I love these tools on my Pyra

    It might be that the Linux guru's among us aren't interested in either of these but I figured some of the regular users like myself will like this tools to use on their Pyra. 1. Guake terminal (With the hotkey set to the USR1 button) This opens up a terminal in a convenient overlay. Multiple...

    PCSX ReArmed Pyra nub issue and PPSSPP black screen

    The nubs on my Pyra work great on the desktop but in-game, in the PCSX ReArmed emulator they do not reset to zero when released, I have to counter-steer to stop the movement. Is that something that can be fixed easily? Also, PPSSPP gives me a black screen only and does not seem to work at all...

    dbp icons

    Quick question, is there a way to show icons of the games and such packed in the dbp's in the menu or on the desktop? Pnd's were automagically scanned and added to desktop and menu but the dbp's are just white icons I need to start from the file browser right? Or am I missing something?

    Are you interested in a new Pandora LCD cable?

    @hns mentioned in this thread that he might be able to order new LCD cables for the Pandora at 30$ each. Herewith a poll to see if there's enough interest to make a small production run.

    Noticed this on indiegogo

    I kinda like the layout with the enter, ctrl, alt and shift in the middle... It reminds me of the icontrolpad too.... :)

    Just testing the water....

    If I were to sell my 2 GP2X's (white and a black one) and 2x GP32's (FLU and BLU), would there be interest in any of those here?

    So I hadn't used my Pandora for a while...

    It has been in stand-by / sleep mode, in a drawer for well over 3 weeks now. This morning I powered it up to check the battery level as I want to take it with me to work this afternoon... The Battery was still at 75%... Amazing! :):p&|a:

    I just have to say...

    I love the recent activity on the kernel mailinglist! Way to go Nikolaus! All promising leads to smashing the bugs! (Audio and now perhaps Tiler too) :) Though I do not understand everything that is going on there I love to read it. It's popcorn worthy lately.

    Charging woes

    This morning when I wanted to charge my Pandora up, the charging light did not come on when inserting the barrel jack. I reinserted it a couple of times but it didn't help so I rebooted the machine. After it rebooted I inserted the charger and the red light came on for a brief moment and...

    Down the relativistic rabbit-hole (Split from official news)

    Note: These posts originated around page ten of An Update of the Waiting Game - some context may have been left behind during the split. - Binky But perception of time is relative isn't it? Also someone ages faster when moving faster iirc. Or was it the other way around?:cool:
