Just a general game recommendation area for those new to what is most fun to run on the Pandora.

My list (of favorite games)

Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2 (Win 95(not tested, but should run fine))

Star Wars: Episode 1 Pod Racing (N64)

Starcraft I (Win98)

That's about it for my favorites. What about you?

I want to see a Freespace or Freespace 2 port.


Only the Engine is ok and i dont have a Problem to put my original Data to the SD Card.


The Engine is not only Freeware,the important info for the DEVs is that Freespace have a Software Renderer buildin,then you dont need a realy 3D acceleration for it on Pandora.


It is possible and i think that Game can make many fun on the Pandora.

My experience with Qemu is not to expect anything 3D as playable.

As much as I'd love to see Jedi Knight working don't expect it to be playable. I could however give it a try..

Thats right,not yet.but maybe in future can we use VMGL.then we have 3D accelereation maybe inQEMU but its a future thing.


Star Wars Dark Forces2 badly need 3D acceleration.

I have compiled Freespace 2 Open, but it needs OpenGL acceleration (and doesn't work yet with Linuxbochs OpenGL). About Freespace 1, I think the remake are using Freespace 2 engine, but I may be mistaken. I speak about native port, not emulated originals...

I know it doesn't push the platform and that it's old, etc...  But the main game I find myself playing on my Pandora is the Vulture's Eye version of Nethack.  Still fun after all these years.

For a Doom Era shooter made by the people behind Halo.. Also bonus you don't have to dig around for legal data files everything you need is bundled.  Never had a Mac during the 90's so never played this when it first came out. so I never played this until I got the Pandora and love the game(s)..


Aleph One Trilogy

Jagged Alliance 2! Nobody makes games like this anymore which is so sad. I want to buy myself a DS/3DS only to play the JA1 remake, and maybe the JA2 will be the main reason to buy myself a Pandora. :)

I've had a lot of fun on mine playing Doom, Theme Hospital, and Jagged Alliance 2.

As you can guess by my previous posts =P

(At least that goes out to the ones who read them)

1. Comanche 1.0 (through Qemu for Pandora - FreeDos 1.0)

2. Comanche 2.0 vs Werewolf (through Qemu for Pandora - FreeDos 1.0)

3. Dungeon Keeper (through Qemu for Pandora - FreeDos 1.0)

4. Baphomets Fluch aka Broken Sword (through ScummVM)

5. Battle for Wesnoth of course ! =D

6. Battle Jewels

7. Lemmings

Honestly there are so many more such as Jagged Alliance 2 , C&C SVGA (Qemu - Win98) , Myth - The Fallen Lords (Qemu - Win98) and so on... but Im just lacking time to play all of those classics =S
