Some requests have and may not appear on this list

  • Emulator Plausibility List - A semi-speculative list of which systems the Pandora is likely to emulate, along with status of active emulation projects.
  • Closed Source Projects - A list of closed source / commercial projects that have shown interest / disinterest in the Pandora platform.
  • Port Requests - A catch-all thread for all of the "Wouldn't it be cool if Pandora ran XXXX?" posts.

If you have a port request, you may add it to this page. If a developer likes the look of it, it might get picked up. Before adding your request, please follow these steps:

  • Check that your request is not already ported or under development on the Repo or in the forums
  • Determine if the request is viable using this flowchart; if not, move to "improbable"
  • Requests need a link to source code
  • Observe alphabetical and categorical order
