    [solved] Oh good, I have a problem....finally.

    right-click with a stylus (with the default configuration AFAIK): hold the start/alt-button and touch the screen.

    Easy RPG - Games Not Quite Working - Help Anyone?

    This is just a blind guess of mine but might be a problem related to floating-point calculation. I know such an issue from the game Brogue (a rogue-like). In Brogue you can enter a few digit long number (seed) which then calculates a dungeon for the game. In older versions of Brogue you got a...

    Correct procedure for removing SD cards?

    I'm a bit out of this topic, but I used to frequently unmount pnds manually in the early days of the Pandora. If you need more help, then I will look into the subject ones again on the Pandora. For now here is a quick overview from the blurry memory I got: When a PND is mounted there is a...

    Correct procedure for removing SD cards?

    Just to be sure: You have to search for "/media" not "/media/". Edit: Crap, false quick-shot of mine. *g* You shouldn't make your first post in the morning a quick one. I mixed something up. When you include the sdcard-name in the search (like "/media/trans8"), then you have to leave out the...

    Correct procedure for removing SD cards?

    In the beginning I also often had problems with sd-cards not getting cleanly unmounted and because of that was not pleased with the automatic mounting system of the pandora.That's why I setup Mount-Menu. It's no pro-tool, but for me does what it is supposed to do. MountMenu does provide a more...

    [Release] Compo4all MAME - ladder/scoreboard competition for classic arcade games :)

    If your intention is to play outrun at all on the Pandora, then there is good news for you: http://repo.openpandora.org/?page=detail&app=cannonball_ptitseb As for c4a and highscore-competition: I think Outrun is too demanding to be run in c4a-mame.

    [Release] Compo4all MAME - ladder/scoreboard competition for classic arcade games :)

    My proposal: Make c4a-mame playable offline including local cache for high-scores. That way I could play while on the run and sync scores when I am at home. Even when I am not on the run this would enable me to sync scores when I want to (e.g. once a week). Because of this...

    [Release] Compo4all MAME - ladder/scoreboard competition for classic arcade games :)

    Tried dkongjr. Not sure if I hear all sounds, but I guess. In the intro I hear a melody and a stomping sound once DK is struggling to get out of the cage. In the first level I hear a BG-music (can't really call it music) and  sounds when DKjr is moving, climbing, jumping, collecting food. Didn't...

    [Release] Compo4all MAME - ladder/scoreboard competition for classic arcade games :)

    Hey, cool. That's a good, simple way of getting around it. Actually it's so simple, that I should have thought of it on my own. :D I could try to use ABXY for moving and D-Pad-right (for example) for jumping. But it will probably be pretty hard to get used to this swapped...

    [Release] Compo4all MAME - ladder/scoreboard competition for classic arcade games :)

    Ok, I found the reason for this. My LCD-cable is (again, after exchanging it back in time) starting to be defective, which is why I get a light purple tint sometimes. Obviously I didn't recognize that yesterday evening. Today I noticed that the selected option is colored in the same lightly tint...

    [Release] Compo4all MAME - ladder/scoreboard competition for classic arcade games :)

    If it really did work and now does not anymore, then I can't tell you the exact reason. What I can tell you is that the stomping sounds of Donkey Kong right at the in-game-start and the running- and jumping-sounds are provided by samples. So you need to put the sample-zip-file into the...

    [Release] Compo4all MAME - ladder/scoreboard competition for classic arcade games :)

    I gave this a try this evening. Setting it up was no problem. But in Donkey Kong (the only game I tried so far) the controls are quite awful. Either it's me being totally out of training (not saying that I have ever been good or something) or it's because  of that 4-way- or 8-way-differences of...

    recover password without reflash

    I can't recommend to start the desktop after booting the system in the above mentioned way and it's a bit complicated as well. That's really only for sort of low-level administrative tasks like changing the password or trying to reestablish a broken boot-process. In that state many...

    How Off-topic can you get? [Challenge]

    Here is my entry: I like the Pandora. Explanation: The most off-topic post in the off-topic-general-section is an absolutely on-topic post related to the Pandora-forum. Edit: Looks like TrashyMG and I had the same thought. :)

    recover password without reflash

    Sooner or later in live you will have to take responsibility anyway. ;) And you don't help people by leaving them in the false believe that their data is safe if it actually isn't. That's maybe a method that Microsoft used for quite a while. Look around in the web. The part with the...

    recover password without reflash

    It's a bit of an effort,yes, but there is no need to install the firmware to SD, if you want to change the password. But you WILL need an empty SDcard, that can be as small as you like (I just used a 32MB SDcard for testing) and on that you can set up a boot-able partition.  The trick is to...

    Alpha footage of new roguelike.. Darkwood

    regarding the term "rogue-like": What you write, skeezix, is spinning in my mind as well every time I read about the term lately. One of the most doubtful (at first) occasions to me was with the game "FTL". My thought was: "What? Rogue-like? That's a sort of strategic space-combat, but not a...
