A New SuperZaxxon When You Least Expect it

update

A couple of weeks ago, Notaz released a surprise update for the Pandora firmware. After all, the 1.73 one was supposed to be the very final firmware update for the Pandora, yet Notaz is a perfectionist and does not easily leave things unfinished. This new firmware comes with a number of changes worth mentioning in a whole post.

We seem to be back to a more normal month now, with a few dozen updates and less than 10 new releases. But there’s a lot of gems there: the new Kodi Media Center, version 16.0, updated versions of Xash3D, Daikatana and RCTW which should all be a little faster. Among the new releases, Call to Power 2 stands out as an excellent Civilization game that can run on the Pandora. Definitely better than, let’s say, FreeCiv.

What a month! Maybe it was because of Christmas, or the New Year. But look at the quantity of the Releases and Updates. Awesome. Brand new port of Div studio games, older games only available on the old repo now uploaded and so accessible via PNDManager. More than 100 news & updated packages. And many quality ones. Don’t miss the updated LibreOffice, The Tube, Xash3D or Giana’s Return at least. And on the new releases side, take a look at Bart the Barbarian, DBGL, Flying Saucer Attack, Witchblast or one of the Ginge packages.

Yup. that’s right.

I was pretty much away from the Pandora scene in the past month (family obligations) and paradoxically it was one of the busiest months ever in terms of new releases. You can see by yourself, 21 new PNDs! There were a large bunch of updates as well, and it also means I have a lot to catch up in order to test what interests me the most… 🙂

Another month poor in New Releases, but actually pretty abundant in updates! I thought most people would be off in July-August but it looks like it did not prevent everyone from doing some work for the Pandora community! The Pyra launch is getting near (probably less than a year from now, we’ll see how it goes) but it’s really nice to see the Pandora scene still kicking as usual. And OH, sorry for being late. But having a baby did not help.
