Over the last couple of years while using Linux, I've slowly become better at what could loosely be described as "hacking".
I mainly focus on stuff that is Palm related, mainly trying to integrate some of the command line tools available for Linux->Palm connectivity with some well known Linux applications.
Gameboy & Doom for the Palm!
One of my dream handheld gaming devices has always been to be able to play GameBoy/Gameboy Color games & Doom (original - accepting that later versions would need a pretty grunty device). I thought my Palm Tungsten T2 was beyond such amazing deeds...until NOW! Thanks to PalmPowerUps, you can purchase UDMH & WarpSpeed for your Palm. In a nutshell, WarpSpeed overclocks the processor, & UDMH releases more dynamic memory on your Palm. With these 2 apps you really are good to go!
To be able to play GameBoy/GameBoy Color games, you need to grab this amazing emulator... LJP PalmOS ! You obviously need PalmOS 5+ and an external card. Follow the instruction to install the GameBoy component. Will leave it to the readers descretion on how they actually GET GameBoy/GameBoy Color games onto their SD cards. Suffice to say, you won't be disappointed!
The LJP PalmOS site has a few screenshots of it running, such as this one...
So what you need here is ZDoomZ . With the appropriate WAD files from the original Doom you can easily & smoothly run ZDoomZ . I purchased Doom off TradeMe, but it looks like you can even still buy the game(s) from ID themselves.
Here is a piccie of ZDoomZ running on their website...
Keep in mind here if your Palm is grunty enough it can also run ZQuake or Duke3D! WOW!

Thats all folks at the moment! If I come up with anything else I'II post it here.
