Support for new Kobo Glo HD?

Post by cxu123 » Sat May 02, 2015 2:00 am

With the removal of chess program in latest Kobo firmware, pbchess becomes the only chess program in Kobo device. I really like the video in your site and wish to try it in my new Kobo Glo HD.

But currently after clicking the launcher icon and go to language selection menu, the menu will not response to any touch in the device. The Kobo Glo HD has a new CPU (i.MX6SL), similar to new kindle. It will be great if pbchess can support new Kobo Glo HD.

Thanks! The new build works for Glo HD.

I found that there is a bug for importing PGN file. According to document "Menu/Base/Import PGN. This file will be converted to CDB file with the same name and opened. " But I can not find a CDB file with the same name of PGN after converting.

Thanks. This is not a bug. Documentation is outdated. I will correct it today.

Thanks Geoff. The guy just told me 55 bucks for the Glo. Is it ok for it? From the picture he sent me, the device looks pretty new
