Somehow missed this, sorry!do i smell a lattepanda alpha project ????
I've looked into the lattepanda and the relatively small performance increase really isn't worth the massive initial outlay for me unfortunately.
So for anyone watching at home considering building something like this, I've found a fix for the full screen issues I was having with some older games due to the native portrait orientation of the screen. I found a piece of free software called DxWnd which allows you to seemingly run ANYTHING in windowed mode. It also gives you complete control over the size, position, style of window and how it handles mouse input. Best part is I've been able to configure it to run a full screen windowed mode which means anything I previously had to run windowed or just couldn't run at all, now runs beautifully and takes up the whole screen too!
