    Following are some Timidity optimisations for better MIDI performance on the Pandora. I am interested in feedback from gamers who are using sebt3's MIDI installer for background music.

    Any mobile/cell phone network gurus in the house?

    Last week I picked up a HP Pre 3. It's an AT&T model from Canada, and I'm using it in Australia on Telstra. I love the phone, but soon after setting it up it started rebooting itself. I went to the webOS Nation forums and found an active thread, where a few people were having the issue. A bit of...

    Firmware suggestions and contributions

    This thread is intended to be a discussion point for suggestions and contributions to the Pandora OS. I want it to be a conversation with the guys who ultimately bear the workload, and I hope that ED, Notaz, Skeezix, DJWillis etc can add any information that would help us help them. It’s not...

    Release [Rebirth Comp] qrizMaze

    Starting thread on behalf of Weber (qriz) Christian. For anyone who doesn't know, this requires WizStan's Java PND to be run first (to install Java to NAND). Then you need to unzip qrizmaze to SD, open a terminal there and: java -jar maze.jar (If you have Java installed on your desktop...

    Release [Rebirth Comp] Ballion

    There doesn't seem to be a thread for this, and I'd already written my thoughts on the entry, so I'm starting one on behalf of Juergen Urban. I'm a sucker for Arkanoid, so I was very happy to launch this and realise what type of game it was. (No, I didn't even read the description first). I'm...

    Detecting whether the OS is running from NAND or SD

    I'm after some help getting my SnapSnap screenshot PND working on systems running from a boot SD. Currently I'm using a script provided by Caine to determine the SD path for creation of a screenshots folder: dir=$(mount | awk '/^\/dev\/mmcblk0p/ {print $3}') This is not working on boot SDs...

    Pandora Writing to home dir (NAND) from PND

    From the wiki: This is good. But what if you need to write there? Is there an override you can add to the PXML, or a particular path you need to use?

    SnapSnap is a screenshot utility, making use of the built in 'fbgrab' command. The installer copies a script to NAND, and sets up a hotkey to trigger screenshots (default is F10). An auto-timer utility is also included. Screenshots are saved to SD card. Changes in - Added support...

    Emulated racing games

    We still lack a 'complete' MSX emulator. Send help.

    We have a pretty good MSX emulator in zx-81's PandoraMSX: http://zx81.zx81.fre...egories/130-MSX Problem is, it doesn't have full keyboard mapping options. (I guess because the port was originally for GPH consoles). This means there are no Function keys, and that means you can't play Metal...

    PickleLauncher: issues, requests

    Sorry if this stuff has been covered before. I've been working on some PL skins this week (and learning lots about it fast - it is a lot more flexible and capable than I thought. Nice one Pickle.) Just some feedback... Adjusting fonts. It would be nice if the header & footer text...

    Mupen64 PickleLauncher skin

    Decided to play around with a Mupen64 PickleLauncher skin today. It's not quite done, but this is probably about as far as I can take it. Mockup: As you can probably tell, it's based on the Snes9x4P skin (translation: I just ripped those images and edited them). Some areas could be...

    Free Heroes 2 (Might & Magic 2) needs love

    Two purposes for this thread. To remind people that this exists (it was ported by Pickle very early on - belated thanks Pickle <3) To see if we can't rustle up a wee update :3 For the uninitiated, Free Heroes 2 is an open source implementation of the classic Heroes of Might and Magic II...
