PalmStackz Installation

  1. Make sure you have installed a SuperWaba VM on your device. You can either find it here or download it from www.superwaba.com.
    Please check that you use the latest SuperWaba version.

  2. Start PalmStackzSetup.exe on the PC and follow the instructions of the installation program. The PalmStackz installer copies some sample wordlists onto your device.

  3. If you learn an Asian language, you have to install an additional Unicode Fonts. Some of them can be found here. Please send us an e-mail if you can't find the font you need.

  4. In order to convert the native ".szm" Stackz files to the PalmOS ".pdb" files and back, please use the "szm2pdb.exe" tool (download from here).

3. Test/Learn Dialog - center text vertically
- hide sliders
- font display quality (try bold)
Try to improve for future release (low priority)

7. File options The "../../../../src/video/palm/SDL_,Line:143,No video mem" is shown on some devices while opening the dialog. Contact SuperWaba. It seems to be a SuperWaba VM problem
