As soon as pdaX gets more and more impressive, it would be very nice to port terribly beautiful and powerful game machine, known as AGS (Adventure Game Studio). Many and many remakes of old classical games, especially Sierra ones (KQ1/2/3, QFG4.5 etc) have been done by it. Its home page is www.bigbluecup.com and its author is Chris Jones. He doesn't give AGS source even to developers (Linux PC binary does exist, though), but since sashz wisely compiled pdaX for x86 systems also, developers' team could contact Jones and ask him to download pdaX CD and do a cross-compiling of AGS for ARM. It wouldn't take such a terrible amount of time and work, and all pdaX community will be able to play wonderful games and, in distant future, even edit or write them (Jones supposed to work on Linux game editor).

The only technical problem to me seems limited performance of Z (Jones notes it about Palms/CEs). But as soon as AGS DOS ports (made by DJ Delorie) work fast enough on P100+, and Windows 2000/XP requires Pentium II-400, it should work on Zs, at least on those with PXA270 and especially with overclocking. Maybe without MIDI Music, but with ALSA even this should be working with decent speed.

If this idea is to liking of any of the pdaX community guys and especially developers, let's do it. It will be very valueable add-on pack for pdaX!

Heard about CF one from EOps tech.? I wonder if anyone could hack the Windows Mobile 2003 drivers and make it working under Sharp Linux kernel? I suspect this would require a lot of disassembling work... Or maybe it'd be easier to write simple ones... But it would be very nice to watch TV on Zaurus.

Subj. It can open them as playlists (showing gibberish, of course), but not as MP3 files. It doesn't open dirs, either. My X11 ROM version is 0418081203.

After having the X11 ROM (version 0418081203) installed, I've tried to connect to my Zaurus C760 via USB cable (as root with password, of course) and realized that it connects but it can't read subdirectories - it just hangs up instead. Also it can't transfer directories with a lot of files/or long filenames (especially!), though copying of several files without dirs works fine. I have the only user entry as a root. I tried to make an another user account to use for FTP transfers, but, unfortunately, useradd command doesn't seem to work at all ("bad command").

If anyone had the same experience and/or made it through this problem - please post your sitiation/suggestion here. My PC is powered by Win2K Pro/SP3, and I've used standard IP-over-USB drivers from Japanese Zaurus CD which seemed to work fine with original ROM.
