As promised, to remind you what you've been waiting for (and show new users what the Pandora is all about), I'm going to post one video per day (except for weekends) from now on!


All videos will be posted to this thread as well.


You can post any suggestions and wishes to this thread.


Discuss about the videos here


One vid per day episode 1:

Let's start with some Descent 1 & 2.


Excuse my crappy playing - I never played it before and never have been good in these kind of games :)

One video per day - Episode 2: SNES Emulation

https://www.youtube.com/embed/RiTD9EMxjMI?feature=oembed

Today we've got some SNES emulation.


The SNES Emulator features a nice ROM Selector (takes 2 - 3 seconds to read in over 3000 roms), Savestates, SRAM, scaling option.


All the games shown run fullspeed with 600 - 650 MHz, except for Yoshi's Island which needs 650 - 700 MHz.


No frameskip used in ANY of the games except for StarFox: It has the framerate set to AUTO, but I haven't noticed much skipping here.


StarFox needs 750 MHz currently, but I've not seen a unit that can't do 750 MHz and the SNES emulator is not optimized.


So: Fullspeed without Frameskip for 99% of all SNES games at 600 MHz. The rest needs a bit more juice right now.


Enjoy :)

One video per Day - Episode 4: ScummVM

https://www.youtube.com/embed/0wZg1dpYRl8?feature=oembed

Today we take a look at ScummVM. Besides some low-res classics, the real highlight are the Hires games like Monkey 3, Broken Sword 2, 7th Guest, etc.


They look beautiful on the Pandora LCD.


Enjoy todays video and have a nice weekend.


Episode 5 will follow on Monday and will show tethering a Windows Mobile Phone with the Pandora to surf the net with Chromium.

One video per Day - Episode 5: Bluetooth Tethering and Websurfing

https://www.youtube.com/embed/TwxROhIV6-4?feature=oembed

We had some gaming in the last video, so it's back for some Mini-Tutorial today.


Using XFCE4, Bluetooth and a phone, you setup tethering for Internet Access. I'm using a Sony Xperia X1 as demonstration. Really hand having the phone in the pocket to surf the web.

Pandora - One vid per day 11: XFCE4 brief overview

https://www.youtube.com/embed/i6DNfD5gjcg?feature=oembed

Today we take a (very) quick look at the desktop system of the Pandora.


In only 10 minutes, there wasn't time to show a lot, so I concentrated on the Pandora-specific settings mainly.


It's a standard XFCE4, so you can grab a Xubuntu Live CD and try it out yourself at your PC :)
