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!

Yeah, it's a problem with aufs union on FAT32 SD cards, which kind of makes the whole PND / appdata system broken. I don't use FAT32 since it is a garbage filesystem. I'll work around this issue, then I'll fix the kernel bug which is causing it - it's been at large WAY too long already!
