I've ported my SpecBAS BASIC interpreter to it, and it's great fun. SpecBAS is based on Sinclair BASIC with the best bits of AMOS incorporated and being able to pratt around in BASIC on a lunch break is sublime, it really is. This little device never leaves my pocket, and with massive battery life it's always ready when I need it.

Well worth the money, imo.

Cool - might invest in one now! I ended up going for the PSP for homebrew - but emulation for Amiga on their is pretty slow/jerky at present but great for PS1 games/SNES/NES/Megadrive etc lol.

Excellent! You'll be pleased to hear that as of the latest firmware beta, Amiga emulation with UAE4All is broken beyond repair and there doesn't appear to be a fix in the works - hence I've been emulating an Atari ST and Megadrive.

Is there a reason why it doesn't work so a workaround can be devised?

there is a workaround - booting with the old kernel
Quote:
Note with SuperZaxxon you can still hold [R] when switching on the Pandora and boot kernel 2.6 to use UAE4All (which you probably know already).

Still I'll try to adapt the code some time this month.

thanks Dunny
X-pired is great, nice little puzzle game; wasted a train journey or 2, disappointed when it ends
PandoraElite.pnd beta looks great, just booted it up, nice crisp colours and sound.

I reviewed the Pandora on Amiga Lore and made suggestions for some of the emulators.
