As said the space is present in the original post, post #145 by twobob on page 10, which is in code blocks BUT also within spoilers, which may have resulted in the space being added, as is the case when used with quote blocks.

But it's really no big deal. I was just pointing out in case another newbie such as me uses the script and wonders what is going on with the funky keys.
Actually, it is a big deal. I just did some testing, and there is a new bug in the MobileRead code block Web page code.

Here is the "broken code block in a spoiler" part of twobob's post #145:

KS="1234567890____QWERTYUIOP____ASDFGHJKL_____ZXCV BNM_,"
KP="1234567890____~@#$%^&*()____<>[]{}?/\_____;:'|-+=_?"
And here is a portion of my original post that used a php block:
Quote:

KS="1234567890____QWERTYUIOP____ASDFGHJKL_____ZXCVBNM_,"
KP="1234567890____~@#$%^&*()____<>[]{}?/\_____;:'|-+=_?" 
If you press the "quote" button on twobob's post, you will see that those strings actually DO contain spaces that should NOT be there.

Here is a corrected version of the portion of twobob's post shown above:

KP="1234567890____~@#$%^&*()____<>[]{}?/\_____;:'|-+=_?"
Conclusion: The problem is with twobob's corrupted copy of my code, not in the way MobileRead renders the code blocks.

So if you knew it was a problem, then why are the incorrect spaces still in your old post? I just checked. You can edit it, you know...

Leaving those incorrect spaces there has caused recent confusion, and also wasted some of my limited time investigating a possible MobileRead "code block in a spoiler" bug. It could cause problems in the future too, until it gets fixed...

You may want to see if your attached .tar.gz file needs repair while you are at it.

No problem. Twobob and I are buddies. Just chewing his behind a little, which I think he needs at the moment. No harm in that, right?

All's well that ends well.

Hey am I the first to have performed a hadouken on a Kindle?!

I've noticed some intermittent slow down during play. I thought perhaps this may be due to the roms in question (e.g. Choplifter II, Race Days) but it's happening with games previous posters has said run fine, such as Zelda. Have any of you experienced slowdown too?

Not really - iirc - but I didn't "play it to death" that much.

Play much more solidly on the 5 - I did notice that.

Best bet would be to just have something monitoring resources as you play
(htop in another shell at worst?)

If I had to guess it would be something "in the background" muscling around, but it could be memory related perhaps. Testing would tell.

I think there were about 20 titles that I played that didn't suffer from eink artefacting and played quite nicely.

It's strange because slowdown only happens sometimes with the same game. First time I played Race Days, there was slow down. Played again last night and it seemed fine. I'll checkout htop as suggested.

Do you think this app will ever be on par with the Nook efforts? I read GeekMaster mention it should be possible, although more difficult.

Can you list those 20 titles please twobob? I'm trying to come up with a list of my own but it's taking longer than expected, as whenever I come across a game that works well, testing then becomes a little extended shall we say. Maybe I should have avoided this app, as I'll be gaming more than reading (again!).

Here's what I have so far.

By golly, it works!
Spoiler:

Asteroids
Baseball
Battleship
Bomberman
Chase HQ
Choplifter II
F1 Pole Position
Harvest Moon
Kwirk
Legend of Zelda TLA
Mario Golf
Race Days
Street Fighter II
Tetris


As we all know, games the scroll sideways is a no no for the e-ink, so you can practically rule all of them out. Surprisingly though, racing games work quite well. I first thought that they wouldn't because of the fast moving environment, but because the road is white, there is nothing for the e-ink to update, and of course your vehicle only moves left and right from time to time over a small amount of the screen.

Any racing games where you see the vehicle from behind should play well (if road is white), and that should be the same for any top down racers, although Micro Machines is a mess, very blurry due to the business of the graphics.

Another problem to keep in mind,
the e-ink screens are vertical and other computer displays are horizontal in their largest dimension:

Well, there is usually a work-around for anything.

For Kindle 3? What's the screenshot of, ie what's it running on as it's in colour?

Does the 'dithered' mean improved motion, like that of the Nook?

Sound would be awesome! When can I get my hands on compiled version please?
