Re: Unreleased Android version of B-Em

Tis is great!! tonnes better than the play store version. It works well on my GPDXD+. I have to tilt it 45' when I want to assign keys to my physical controls but that`s not a biggie. Great to have my most remembered emulators running well on my handheld ( C64, Spectrum and Beeb ) Thanks again.. oh ...

Re: New Release: Retro Software's WHITE LIGHT by Sarah Walker

Fantastic! I got round to trying this.. It works on BeebEm 0.6 on my Open Pandora.


Actually... no it doesn`t :( the intro works but when I press space it just freezes with the ship on screen :(

Beeb em on Open Pandora

So... long shot..

Does anyone fancy looking at this emulator? I`m sure there`s a few things to tidy up...I`m open to test .

But I think you need to be setup to be able to produce a .pnd file. I could probably get more info for this if anyone`s interested :)

cheers.

The thing that puts me off the idea of the open-pandora the most is the size of the "keyboard". Other than that mind :-k The Pyra ( Open Pandora successor ) is almost here..
