Full Version: C860 Question (Five questions)
OESF Portables Forum > General Forums > General Discussion

I have tried a bunch of legacy 5500 games (and other stuff) on the the C860 and I was wondering a few things....

1) Is there anyway to get the auto-rotation to stop (or triggered manually) so that I can play the games in landscape mode? I mean I would rather have it use half the screen than have it in portrait mode and be impoosible to play becuase space key is generally fire and I can't play most of the games because the space key is so far away from the arrow keys.

2) Is there a really good (and LOUD) alarm program for the C860? I tried the trusty 5500 Alarm clock program and it must be running to work (which is not going to work for me) also, I tried an "Alarmed" appointment (on LOUD) and it is really lame...so quiet that it will never wake me up. (I like that the C860 has a real speaker, but for an alarm clock it is WAY to quiet).

3) Is there a list anywhere of stuff specify written for the C7XX C8XX units? I mean, it seems like 99% of the stuff out there is made for 5500 and hence kicks it into portrait mode (see number 1 above) which I really dislike. I bought this unit to use in landscape mode, but all the programs are written the other way. So, if there was at least a list, I could have some idea if the C860 is going to have enough native stuff for me to use.

4) Does anyone have access to an English manual ? ...I have an English PDF "Quick start guide", but would really like to have the full manual in English to learn any tricks, etc that are not immediately obvious.

5) Is there a FAQ for the Cacko QT ROM? I went to Cacko.biz, but it seems to be mostly about X11...could someone post a link to the CACKO Qtopia FAQ file?

Thanks

Tap and hold the icon and deselect "display with magnified screen"

Not yet... though there have been talks on the forum to create a Cxx0 feed, with user submitted apps that are known to work well with the C series Zs. I guess I should set that up already wink.gif

I would say the best English manual around to learn tricks would be the Unoffical Zaurus FAQ.

I don't think there is a specific FAQ for the Cacko QT ROM. Someone, please correct me if I'm wrong here!
