Referring to the 2012 Rebirth Compo, which happened just weeks before my time,
one entry appears to have totally disappeared and I cannot find it neither in the Compo link nor the repo nor the Internet as far as...
This sounds good to me. Sending it to resolder the charging port and/or USB. Without the old battery. Because IIRC the Pandora works also with the charger plugged in, without battery.
Sending a battery IIRC costs disproportionally much, a pity since there are still NOS Pandora batteries in the...
It´s very easy to get the exe-file (it´s only about 40 MB), installing and playing works without any problems so far, thank you!
(Good tip to change the steering options - default is accelerating AND steering by D-Pad.)
EDIT In case people don´t know, this game is a topdown racer ;)
IMHO, download linking is not really necessary. Another reason would be, would any link still be valid in five years, or ten? The game (and our Pandoras) will still be running after another 15 years ;) )
It works great for me (CC, 750 MHZ, swap). I even have the files on the swap.
So far I have not encountered any noticeable problems or slowness. But I did not have a PS1 back in the day to compare the speeds - I did not know Wipeout until the PSP era, which was some 10 years...
The gameplay is great fun :) lots of splattering, and dead enemies stay (i,e, unlike, for example, Doom GBA, the dead enemies do not vanish after some seconds to save space).
With autofire and much strafing, I find it a bit easier than Wolfenstein.
Afraid I fail to get it to boot :(
At first I thought: Obvious thing: transferring all the many game files (it´s over 1000) from my android phone to Pandora via Filezilla did not work, I thought some were not transferred or hidden...ZGloomcrashed right after the start and options screen.
Oh right, I was just stupid: It is as you said of course: Saving by pushing the dpad right for save and left for not. Not the other way as would appear more familiar to me.
I had just pushed it the wrong way, and more than once, so yesterday I just thought save is just not implemented :)
Now is tomorrow. Runs smooth at 600 MHz now. Technically, all is brilliant :) thank you!
And of course you are right about START bringing up the map.
I´m also in level 2 now, the map looks twice as big as level 1...and I haven´t even seen the keys or locked doors yet. Still running through and I...
I have spent quite some time reading the interesting website of the original programmer, so, among other things, I have found out there is ten levels.
Thanks a lot to you for a new game port, @Magic Sam, and for this update; I´ll write in a little bit or tomorrow :)
Thanks for the port and happy Pentecost :)
Runs well on Classic at 750 - feels like a new Wolfenstein. Ran through the first level this morning.
Tip for those who might feel stuck at the map view : Press TAB (not ESC or anything) and it goes back to the game :)
