More Touchpad webOS flash game joy!

Using random links to flashgames found a few that ran OK on the touchpad. Used firefox browser to save it as a swf file on my pc and then transfered via usb to the touchpad. Threw the games in a folder called flashgames and then browsed to file:///media/internal/flashgames/game.swf to play it.

Some games work fine and some don't when played this way. Did notice that games play as well online in the browser as they do installed from the browser (No speed difference playing from touchpad compared to online file). I was trying to see if some slower games would speed up if they were local and not on the intertubes.

Ah well, still a nice way to save games to play for when you have no net access.

HP Touchpad - webOS

I was able to snag on of the firesale HP Touchpads a few weeks ago. Never had a tablet and wouldn't ever get one at the current prices but coulnd't resist the uberlow price for the tech.

I used thetweaking guide on precentral.net to reduce logging, install preware and oc it to 1.5ghz, amongst other tweaks.

Someone figured out how to install flash games onto the touchpad. Which led me to try a javascript based z interpreter for infocom and other IF games (Parchment). Works fine so far and I built a handy little html page launcher (Though only usefull when starting a game and not restoring since those are saved as browser bookmarks).

So far its a fun little machine for the price. Has enough apps so far and the flash browser makes up for what it doesn't have webwise. Makes a handy browser, music player, netflix player (w/ playon streaming from main pc) and now infocom machine.
