v0.4.5.2
@Canseco: The FPS counter is unreliable, at least if showing 20. Then it can be 20 or indeed much less! I underclocked via appdata/sparks/cpuspeed to 200 mhz and Sparks may drew 5 FPS (my estimation), but nevertheless showed as 20 FPS. Thus I'm not so sure either wether its reliable above 20 FPS.

v0.4.5.2
@Canseco: The de-facto Pandora keybinding standard is: B accept and X cancel (not Y). MiniMenu, PNDManager, etc

v0.4.5.2
@Canseco: The pndrun_sparks.out file is huge (many megabytes after a few minutes of gameplay), as it logs each "SDL_JoystickGetAxis" event! AFAIK luckily /tmp/ is on RAM FS and not on the NAND, but still, such a debug log should be the dev version, we user folks should get normal logging ;-)

v0.4.5.2
@ Canseco: would a newer build of pygame (with NEON optimizations) be of any help for the low FPS issue ? https://bitbucket.org/pygame/pygame/src
