Hi

I'm the author of ZEsarUX. Glad to see this version! :)

I don't know much about OpenPandora... does it mean ZEsarUX will be included on the next official OpenPandora?

Or is just a downloadable app that anyone can install?

Cheers

Cesar

Hi Cesar! And welcome to the OpenPandora community!

The latter assertion, is correct. We have an app repository and it's an app that folks can download.

Hi Cesar, Bienvenido, ;)

I did discover your emulator thanks to Retro Entre Amigos latest podcast.

I would try to compile it for Pyra (next OpenPandora) as soon as i get one, but maybe it's not needed, as it could be already on debian repos.

I like more Commodore machines, but ZX-UNO with new graphic modes is awesome, ;)

Quick check of the debian armhf repo(Jessie), it's not on there.

Wow, did we not have a ZX Spectrum emulator up until now?  And now we can play with every Sinclair system there ever was apart from the QL (including a couple not actually made by SirClive himself).

Ah yes, that one rings a bell.  Hmm, now I'm confused - searching on the repo now for either 'ZX', 'spectrum' of 'ZX spectrum' all show FUSE and a couple of the combinations also show ZXPandy, but I could have sworn those didn't show up when I checked just before posting my last post.

Hi. I suppose you are Spanish like me :) I have to listen to that podcast..


Thanks for developing this openpandora app! Two questions:


-why don't you mantain the same version number (3.0) instead the one you wrote (3.0.0.1)? Seems a bit confusing, the source code is the same as 3.0


-I don't have any openpandora. Is there any video or photo only to see how it looks my emulator in the console?


Any question you have you can contact me by mail (address is in the History file included in the emulator)


Thanks again!


Cesar

This is how it's defined on PXML config file:

<version major="3" minor="0" release="0" build="1" type="release"/>

Some developers use major and minor, while others use major minor and release.

I use build to make changes to current version.

-I don't have any openpandora. Is there any video or photo only to see how it looks my emulator in the console?
Sure



Do you have the url to the podcast?

There is an option in the SDL omapdss driver to respect aspect ratio of the scaling.
 

Code:
export SDL_OMAP_LAYER_SIZE="scaled"
