    Just a quick status report video

    I don't believe this applies to the Pyra in the first place (portable computers or laptops are not listed for example), but it's also worth noting this part of the proposal probably excludes the Pyra as it's technically already on the market.

    Steam Deck (using SteamOS) handheld by Valve

    Not really a surprise that it happened. The OS image was posted by Valve in the Steamworks forums, so anyone with Steamworks access could download it (been taken down shortly after). Most of the new SteamOS UI will be the new Big Picture interface... well that's pretty much what has been said...

    battery only reaches 87%

    I assume this doesn't apply to the standard model? I just charged mine to 100%/4.2V to see if it was just my memory being wrong. Just hope I won't charge mine to 120% in the future then.

    Just a quick status report video

    That phone case at 5:06... are you still using a Pro1? If so, what case are you using there? I'm still using a pouch for mine but would rather have something more like a flipcase... if there were any that actually fit. I kinda gave up after my first modification attempt with one. Oh and thanks...

    battery only reaches 87%

    I've had my Pyra at 100% before, though I intentionally avoid getting to that point. Unless something changed in the past few months it should be possible to get there at least.

    I miss the physical Gamescom.

    Steam Deck (using SteamOS) handheld by Valve

    So games using Easy Anti Cheat (owned by Epic these days, of all companies) will probably work on launch. Or maybe just Rust if it needs individual dev approval, but better than nothing? One thing that worries on me on that topic either way is if this kind of anti-cheat compatibility will...

    Current State of the Pyra

    Anecdotal and not for sure yet I guess, but for someone who got the loud noise stuff way too often I haven't gotten any in about an hour this session so far. I put master volume down a bit (70%), turned headset playback to Off for left and right and put all power modes to low power (I swear...

    Current State of the Pyra

    Yeah no, that doesn't work. At least not in the sense of muting it in alsamixer.

    Release Hydra Castle Labyrinth

    Fellow Pyra historians may disagree. There are earlier recorded signs of the game running on a Pyra in 2018 for example. Jokes aside, it's good to have it packaged up as DBP. Thanks for your efforts.

    Valve launching Steam Deck - SteamOS Handheld Console

    Good thing that the Steam Deck is running the new SteamOS 3.0 (yes, three), which is now Arch based and presumably not out of date. On the software end it seems to be a pretty open handheld PC. The Steam components of course aren't open source, but you'll be able to use it like a portable PC...

    Texas Instruments ARM 64 boards

    You may as well just disregard the right half as it's not gonna be supported down the line anyways. Maybe the same for the top left part as well actually.

    Audio Out

    There is something like that on the Pyra? It's not like the speakers stop outputting anything when plugging in headphones so I just assumed that output is also always driven (save for manually muting either of course).

    Video playback on Pyra

    Is it actually using GL4es? Don't forget to use the gl4es command if you're using the package from the Pyra debian repo. What frame rate is the video at? I've been assuming 24/30 fps content. Haven't checked with 60 fps stuff for example. If it's possible to share the file I'd take a look at it...

    Video playback on Pyra

    Been using mpv as I do everywhere else these days. I don't think I've shared my optimized config yet, though. ytdl-format=mp4[height<=720]/mp4/best scale=bilinear cscale=bilinear dscale=bilinear sws-scaler=bilinear scale-antiring=0 cscale-antiring=0 dither-depth=no correct-downscaling=no...

    Audio devices

    It's true that we all know there are issues to tackle and it's certainly not simple. But I don't think not acknowledging specific issues is going to help. That's interesting. I don't need the microphone on the Pyra so that'd be fine for me. One time it happened it was right after I plugged in...

    Audio devices

    I'd honestly be for any audio setup change that stops the insanely loud white noise from happening (even with the volume slider all the way down). Happened twice so far and actually made me pretty scared to use any kind of headphones with the Pyra. Well, that aside the channel setup is still...

    8bitdo gamepads Xbox360 compatibility on Windows

    Mhm, I won't pretend it never disconnected to me, but not to the point where I'd not use it at all. Latency has never been a problem on my end though. Haven't used it with 8bitdo controllers (and probably won't need to), but with my good old Saitek PS2700 and even Pandora via Master Control (can...

    8bitdo gamepads Xbox360 compatibility on Windows

    I have a SN30 pro+. Haven't played tons, but when I played it worked like a charm. Using it with a Bluetooth dongle in XInput mode and it's been detected as an Xbox controller just fine. I had one instance where it disconnected all of the sudden (not a massive problem, got it reconnected in a...
