There are several other examples of technologie from old technologie, still made in 2020, like the Piaggio Ape (This 3Wheel Light Truck Thing)
or the Lada Niva which was a long time build whit the same technic from the 1970thes, just whit some changes on the Exhaust Cleaning and i think an Airbag..
Or the "VW Beatle " which came from the 1930thes, and was build in Mexico until the 1980thes if i remember correctly....

The Pyra CPU is also not for ever, it is a basic option so the Handheld want be a Expensive Door Stopper until a better CPU Board is made..
Then it maybe Technik from the 2016 in 2025 ^^
My favourite example is the Hewlett Packard pocket calculator HP12C. It is built and available since 1981. Their longest selling product: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HP-12C
And my HP15C (bought ca. 1985) is still alive and in use every now and then... For example, I did some calculations for mechanics or resistor values for the Pyra with it...
So the Pyra does not only use some older but still good technology, it was designed by using really ancient technology :)

Less than 40 years? How come this is even considered ancient?
In my camera collection stuff from the 80s is among the newest crap i own.

I'm in this for the long haul and would be kinda sad when it finally does get delivered.

Returning to the forums is like visiting old relatives; lots of chuckles.

I think EvilDragon's Pyra build log needs to turned into a book or get Kairosoft to do a GameDevStory game version

This is epic history in the making!!!

I would have Vacations on the beginning of November, this would be cool, also whe drive then to "Gaggenau" South of us to watch for a Ex German Army Unimog...

But dont hurry,
Im lacking just some informations on some Topics from the Newspost:
Will the Rented Assemply Hall be also used for the first 150 Pyrae, or will they just put together as far as the Boxes arive?
And where some Dark Chrome Cases allready put togehter whit Screens?

This is based on my pandora port of Dante project. I haven't tried any optimisation, or tinkering with the settings. It feels pretty well despite the not so high FPS, as it's a slow paced game anyway.
The game is rendering at full 720p resolution, I can probably use an lower res FBO to give it a speed boot if needed, but I think it wont be needed anyway. Also, maybe dhewm3 (or simething like that) can work better? I haven't tried it.
Hi all :)
@ptitSeb : DooM 3 is one of the game I'm the most looking forward to playing on the Pyra :) Many thanks for your hard work on this one !
Cheers, Magic Sam

Here, to help you with the wait :D

OS and 3D Driver are comming up nicely. Driver works in a window now. Performance is also quite good. Here is Serious Sam TSE, with graphic detail cranked up... Looks nice isn't it (and it's even nicer when it moves) ;)
I'm also quite impatient about this one :D I finished Serious Sam TFE on the Pandora thanks to your amazing work :) Serious Sam TSE was a bit too slow IMHO on my overclocked Rebirth, so I could unfortunately never complete it. I'm certain this one will benefit immensely from the extra CPU and GPU resources the Pyra has to offer !
Cheers, Magic Sam

Is it "DooM 3" or "DooM 3 BFG Edition". Plain Doom3 should work, but for the BFG I think it's another engine (dhewm3 for example, that I still haven't built)
If I understand correctly, RBDOOM-3-BFG is the reference engine when it comes to DooM 3 BFG Edition:
Cheers, Magic Sam

@JDTAY , So there is a Discord channel?, As IRC ports are blocked at my work, Discord is one of the few chat methods I have that works here...
