    Wally's Testing Thread

    Hi all ! @Wally : you're welcome :) Could you please explain how you are making those DBPs ? At the moment I'm trying to understand how it works based on the scripts @TrashyMG posted in another thread, but there are still some things I don't understand. By comparing your two methods I may get...

    FAQ Suggestions

    Hi all :) I second @matzesu first question regarding charging: how to properly charge the Pyra's battery ? What kind of cable do you need ? How long does it take to get fully charged ? How long does a fully charged battery last under "average use" ? Cheers, Magic Sam

    Release Streets of Rage Remake

    Hi all :) @TrashyMG : thanks for sharing your DBP scripts ! If I understand correctly, a DBP is roughly similar to a PND. It's a "simple" SquashFS with some meta.zip archive (containing an *.desktop file and a PNG icon) appended to it, plus a Bash script launching the application, right ...

    Open Tyrian

    Hi all :) I just installed @ouzle SDL1.2 package and the game is indeed fullscreen now, but it doesn't scale yet (the game area is quite small and centered and there's a lot of empty black space around it). I also turned the gamepad off using pyrainputctl, and it did fix the issue with the...

    Release Simsu

    Hi all :) @Eight Bit : yeah sorry about that... Simsu itself is a small binary, but the Qt libraries add a lot of weight to the package... Cheers, Magic Sam

    Release Hostile Takeover

    Hi all :) @ptitSeb : thanks for the quick reply, as always. I just tried EcWolf3d from the repo and it has the same issue (I can only see part of the screen, 1/3 of the display's upper part is black). Is there something we can do to help fix this bug ? Cheers, Magic Sam

    Open Tyrian

    Hi all :) @TrashyMG : I just gave your Open Tyrian port a quick go: https://www.pyra-handheld.com/repo/apps/1 It does start on my Pyra but in windowed mode (if I understand correctly, fullscreen SDL games are not yet possible). Navigating through the menu with the DPAD is quite complicated...

    Hi all :) @ptitSeb : your DBP does start on my brand new Pyra, and is indeed fullscreen, but the game itself is not centered, leaving roughly 1/3 of the upper screen black. What am I doing wrong ? Cheers, Magic Sam
