[edit] Distribution updates

Gr56.png GameRunner [0.2]

GameRunner is an Openmoko Linux distribution. It aims at converting the Freerunner open mobile phone in a Linux-based handheld game console. It is simple, and contains cool and suitable open source games for Linux mobile devices. New stuff :

  • new simple app fileselector (finger friendly), useful for Super Nintendo Emulator and Mplayer
  • added Snes9x (Super Nintendo Emulator), Mplayer, GNURobbo, fatfingershell, and Block Rage game
  • pressing power button any time quits the current game (resets X and GUI)
  • added help screen for every game using GameRunner game control
The help screen also asks user to start the game with sound or no sound. Changes :
  • fixes in Gamerunner game control : works always and better. Now red aux
button light means mode 2, so we can know which mode is the current one. Touchscreen control is more accurate.
