Additional Info
Acorn Archimedes Emulator, 26-bit ARM, runs RISC OS 3 ... and games!

Alpha - not ready for prime time!

Usage:

1. launch PND
2. select disk to load in drive 0
3. run the emulator
4. click the floppy icon, then double click the game icon
5. press Pandora button to exit

Other:
- alt-tab - switch to another Pandora app
- select/ctrl - toggle the mouse pointer (RISC OS / Pandora)

Zarch and Conqueror seem to work, more or less.
Low-res modes for games are not yet scaled to fit the screen.
Sound is not enabled yet.

TODO:

- use hardware scaler, probably SDL
- fix the sound
- limit framerate if necessary, do vsync to avoid flickering / tearing

For your info, there are several ways to run RISC OS on Pandora. Why not try all of them?

- native RISC OS for Pandora - http://riscos.openpandora.org/
- native RISC OS can also run ArcEm. It's included with the image, can play old Archimedes games.
- PandRPCEmu - RISC PC Emulator - http://repo.openpandora.org/?page=detail&app=pandrpcemu
- ArcEm for Pandora - this package, can play old Archimedes games, has some issues!

v1.5.1.4
2-/5. A half baked emulator at best. No audio and no control mapping. I am still trying to figure out how to enlarge the window for these games. How can this be a final release? This is a prick teaser.

v1.5.1.4
1.5.1.4, some minor fixes: - starts fullscreen, can still alt-tab out of it. I stole (and fixed) code from an unmerged NET_WM_FULLSCREEN patch to SDL 1.2! - starts with mouse tracked, can still switch using Pandora 'select/ctrl' button - press Pandora logo button to quit
