    Where Is The Faq?

    Where is the SDK? When will the SDK be released? Which toolchain should I use in the meantime? How complete is the current GLES lib? What happened to drawTex? What about FBOs? What about OES_compressed_paletted_texture? Will there be a better GLES lib? Is there any timer with a resolution of...

    16:9 Video = Gray Bars?

    I just transcoded some video for the Wiz. I cropped it and scaled it down to 320x180 (320/16*9=180). So, everything should be great now, right? Well, as the title suggest I now get *GRAY* bars at the top and bottom of the screen instead of black ones. Why the f- are they gray instead of black...

    Efnet Or Freenode?

    Currently the channels (#wiz and #wizdev) are over at EFnet, but EFnet is a rather lousy network. Frequent disconnects, laggy servers, etc. Additionally, it isn't exactly famous for being a development network and most developers don't happen to hang around there. With Freenode things are...

    Touchscreen/stylus Issues

    1. Stylus Compared to the NDS stylus there are 3 noteworthy differences: + The Wiz one is longer, which allows you to hold it like a regular pencil - your hand won't cramp. + The Wiz one got the nicer shape, makes it easier to hold. - The Wiz one got a bad tip. So, there are 2 good things and...

    Quake1 Weapon Bindings

    Here is a little script which allows quicker weapon access. If you hold the select key, you can switch to any weapon with left, right, up, down, L, and R. The script uses weapon groups to make things easier: up = ssg if available, otherwise sg down = sng if available, otherwise ng right = rl if...

    Compiler Flags

    In other posts some people mention they use the following ARM specific flags: -msoft-float -mcpu=arm926ej-s -mtune=arm926ej-s (Edit: had "-tune" here) However, the V8 build script uses a whole pile of switches (if Android is the target): -march=armv5te -mtune=xscale -msoft-float -fpic...

    V8 Js Engine + Minimal Canvas Implementation

    V8 JavaScript Engine "V8 implements ECMAScript as specified in ECMA-262, 3rd edition, and runs on Windows XP and Vista, Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard), and Linux systems that use IA-32 or ARM processors." (emphasis added) The Canvas Element...

    Global Volume Setting

    Some apps store the volume, some don't, and some reset the volume back to 100% whenever they feel like doing so (e.g. Myriad). Closing one app and starting the next also usually means that you have to adjust the volume anew. If the Wiz would use a slider like the NDS (or a wheel/dial like the...

    New/unread Posts Per Forum (Rss?)

    Many forums allow you to view new/unread posts. So, does this one... but I'm only interested in one of the forums (Wiz + its sub forums). Is there some magical URL for this? (Either a page or a feed.)

    Opengl Es - Maximum Texture Size?

    Google and Yahoo weren't of much help here (and my Wiz didn't arrive yet)... so what's the maximum texture size over in GLES 1.1 land? Bonus question: Does using the maximum texture size for atlas/sprite-sheets cause performance degeneration? In theory using one big texture which contains lots...
