Pandora port of UAE4ALL. There are two versions, one with stable video sync, and the "alternate" version with working nubs.[1] Both versions use the same appdata folder.

Tips

  • Readme - very detailed readme with instructions (but for an outdated version).
  • Tutorial: How to get UAE4ALL working on the Pandora
  • Recalibrating the Stylus: UAE4all needs to be in stylus mode, then touch and hold the stylus against the screen, hold down the L button and the d-pad can be used to move the pointer so it matches with the stylus. It works but with Heimdall after about 30 secs the stylus loses calibration. I tried it with Lemmings and it worked great.

Status

Runs at full speed (and is limited to prevent running faster) [2].

A version is available with additions added by john4p, as well as work on the graphics by Notaz and some work by tuki_cat and EvilDragon: Discussion. It should now have proper video-sync.

In-game controls

These are the controls for the "normal" version of May 15, 2011. [3][4][5][6] The "nubs" version is the same, but the left&right nubs can be used to control the mouse (in the usual way for the Pandora) in "joystick" mode.

Notes

1You may need this because some games will be taller or wider than the screen, depending on which aspect ratio you choose in the beginning. Screen positioning gets saved and restored by "save general config" and "save per game config".
