This is quite cool,
As whe now have 3D Car Games Running ,
My it be possible to run Rigs of Rods? This may be the Unimog Simulator this Handheld needs
https://www.rigsofrods.org


Send from something, i guess ^^
That looks cool! I'll have to install on my desktop. Unfortunately, it's 64 bit only as of January 2020, according to the FAQ. That means no running on the Pyra, right?

'Unfixable bugs in the 32 bit builds' sounds like almost the lamest dev excuse I've come across yet. I doubt that would stop ptitseb porting it, but we'll have to see. I suspect there being a handful of important looking glsl files in the repo looks more problematic to me though; I don't think those can be compiled down to the opengles2 that the pyra supports.

Hi ED,

Just wondering how Pyra assembly was going?

Have you received any production ready boxes yet?
Any idea when the first units might ship?

Hope everything is OK with you and your shop :)

1. Boxes not yet arrived, they are scheduled for November 5th (and the manufacturer has been very reliable for the past 10 years :))
2. Picked up Chrome cases on Friday, so we can continue with pre-assembly (so far, we only had black ones)
3. Protection bags for packaging the Pyras arrive this week
4. Special booklet (not a manual :)) is being designed this week and should also arrive until November 5th, so in time with the boxes :)

We're currently testing one final hack on the current CPU boards as a workaround for an OMAP5 / TWL-Bug regarding audio clock, but that's WIP, so not much to tell yet.

So what we're doing is:

* Preassemble as many Pyras up to the state that only the mainboard and CPU boards need to be put in (so Lid, DisplayBoard, magnet, logo, LCD Cable, Hinge, speakers, keymar) as possible
* Once everything is here, send out the emails to the preorders to finish the order. Then finish the assembly with the correct color and ship it.

The preassembly is most of the work. Putting in the boards and closing it up is pretty fast.

Cool, so this may mean that at least the "Paperwork" for the Final Order could be made in my Vacations (2020-11-02 - 2020-11-15) ..

Finally you made something like a Time Based Status Update ^^

The survey about the colours should have all been sent out to your registered email account. If you have a preorder you should have received it already (twice if you're German, the first being blank). If you only have a pre-preorder still you have some work to do.

I've preordered in may 2016,but i didn't received email for color survey. I've contacted dragonbox via whatsapp to take part to survey. Now i'm not sure to reiceve email when my preorder are ready to finish. I want to know an estimate date. Thanks

And you're sure you haven't moved email providers in the intervening years? I did and was able to update my details in the shop just before the survey was actually sent out (just a good guess).

My email was not working when the survey was sent out. Someone forgot to renew the google suite plan :| but it's working now :)

This Special Booklet: Is this the Same as on the Pandora? , Some Sort of Quickstart Guide:
How to Charge, how to boot up, and where do you find the Boards when you have questions..
A big Manual wouldnt make much sense as the Pyra OS is on a quite early state, it works, but its need still some work, so some funktions need first to be implement, and others may be never work, like the Keyboard Lock Button on the Pandora
