Re: rollercoaster tycoon

As awesome as that would be, from what I remember the game was programmed mostly in x86 assembly, which translates to it being impossible / very difficult to port over assuming we had access to the source code. Regardless of having the source code or not, a full rewrite would be required. The CPU in...

I've overclocked the CPU to 900 MHz and the RAM to 500 MHz. mednafan was pretty slow, though better than FCE Ultra...

Emulators?

So far, I've tried two emulators to run Super Mario Brothers 3 on my Raspberry Pi. I've overclocked the CPU to 900 MHz and the RAM to 500 MHz. mednafan was pretty slow, though better than FCE Ultra. I wasn't able to test any gameplay since I wasn't able to move at the map screen. Here's a short vide...

Re: "Workaround" for playing back non-h264 video

<t>When I still used my iPod Touch, I had this app called "Airvideo". Basically, it would allow you to stream video from a Windows, OS X or Linux (With some fiddling around) computer. If I remember right, the server software would monitor a folder for new content and then list it to the app on your ...

Re: VGA

A careful search on eBay for "HDMI to VGA converter" gave me a few results for about $30 CAD shipped from China. One idea would be to sell these converters on the Raspberry Pi store so we wouldn't have to wait for shipping from China.

Re: Devices that you will be purchasing for use with you Rpi

<t>I\'m going to need some way of making the HDMI connection work with my spare VGA LCD monitor, though I suppose it would be easier to find a used LCD with a DVI connection on Kijiji, then use one of HDMI-DVI adapters that came with the graphics cards that I bought. I might end up buying a snappy S...
