OpenJazz ported to PocketPC

I've managed to port OpenJazz to the PocketPC Platform.

This is just a 1:1 port, I've only merged S3M sound code from the GP2X port.

This is especially dedicated to my girlfriend, who loves to play the original Jazz Jackrabbit on my old Pentium 90.

New version of PocketUAE released

+ Added configurable buttons support (also in PocketUAE Launcher)
+ Added option to switch between GAPI and DIB video driver
+ Re-added windowed mode for Handheld PCs (only usable with DIB video driver)
+ Added option to rotate screen left or right (for lefthanded people)
+ Added option to toggle debugoutput (writes to stdout.txt and stderr.txt, useful
to track down start-up problems)
+ Fixed a bug in the sound output driver (after fixing this bug PocketUAE runs _much_
faster here and _without_ sound problems for most games; sometimes even with a
frameskip of 2 & CPU/Chip ratio of 7! Try to select to smallest 'Max. Sound Buffer'
value [2048] and a frequency of 11,025 Hz; if you get hickups in the sound enlarge
your buffer a bit and try again.)... read more

* seperate and cleaner screenshot areas for all subprojects
* possibility to add a brief compatibility report for all subprojects (manufacturer, model & comments)

Additionally, I plan to create a FAQ area for each subproject soon.

PocketUAE with on-screen keyboard

We're still alive!
A new version has just been released. It now has on-screen keyboard support for 240x320 devices (thanks to n0p, I recycled some of his keyboard code from DosBox) with nice selfmade graphics (see the screenshots page); I also added a nice icon to the executable. This version should also run a bit faster on XScale-devices due to a specially XScale optimized build of SDL and of course it runs on WM2003SE.
Unfortunaletely, this version does not support the windowed mode (we will put this back in!) and according to Poopi it won't run in QVGA mode on 480x640 devices (this will be put back in, too). However, it runs in native mode on these hires-devices but the on-screen keyboard is not usable here (garbled screen, this will also be fixed).
The new version of PocketUAE (also includes the latest version of Munk's very nice PocketUAE Launcher) is available for download on the PocketUAE page.
Please post your comments to the forum!
