Re: Beebdroid Disc Handling

I've just tried in on my MK809 and it works fine (at around 50 FPS). But as the MK809 doesn't have a touch screen I'm using a USB keyboard which means I can type, but can't play a lot of the games. I'll try and get a photo of it running on the TV :-) Some of us don't use it for games, at all ;-) Ho...

Re: Beebdroid Disc Handling

If anyone has a non disc related issue that they would like me to investigate whilst I'm in the code, please let me know! Support for physical keyboards? eg Slider phones (droid3) or tablets-with-keyboards (Asus Transformer) or Bluetooth keyboards... (Or has that been solved when I wasn't looking?)...

Re: Beebdroid Disc Handling

Oh, and if anyone has any *ahem* leverage, perhaps the ex-STH staffers could be induced to put a blank disc in an appropriate zip format for me on the site, so that I can try downloading it via Beebdroid and seeing if that fixes anything... That could be arranged! ;) Send me a PM ... Actually, as a...

Beebdroid Disc Handling

Let me just say this, first off - Little Fluffy Toys did a sterling job of porting B-Em to the Android, resulting in Beebdroid, and I don't want to take anything away from them for doing that. *tips hat* But disc emulation is seriously flawed. First off, you can't create a save state image unless it...

Hello from Belgium!

Hi, Just thought I'd stop by and say 'hello', and give you all a bit of an idea of what I'm about... I'm a BBC B and Acorn Electron user (serial number for the Electron to follow - keep forgetting!) getting back into serious 8bit development after *eek* 20-odd years! One of the reasons why I fell ba...
