If it exists also copy SoundFX directory from the windows installation to the appdata directory. Don't lowercase file names.

Also, the tutorial says ctrl & alt for what are Q and W now. That was a bit weird and I was stuck a moment until I came here to say about it and then realized that the controls were listed here.

Nice. Would be good if it could be played just on the pandora without nubs since there are broken nub pandoras, and external mouse is a hindrance. Would need a key to popup the bottom menu and another to indicate that we want to rotate the view (now right trigger+ts is zoom... nice but ...).

Tricky to install but once I got it going it was great! Even with the Pandora @600mhz till runs great! And with just a little more speed it runs just as well as it does on my Laptop :) 5 stars!!!
