I meant to share this a while ago! DecalGirl has a ton of OUYA skins. I've seen a handful of cool looking ones on the site. Check it out if you're into that sort of customization.

Amazing Spider-Man 2 is out for Android. The game does work on OUYA but sadly not with the MOGA mod. I can confirm that the 360 controller does work well with this game. I don't have a PS3 controller to test with. Additionally, this game will run on high settings but expect some lag. For virtually no lag, you will want to play on low. Luckily there isn't that much of a noticeable difference between high and low settings aside from the lighting on Spidey's costume.

The game is not listed as compatible by the MOGA Pivot app, so that is not a surprise.

OUYA let us know up front they wouldn't be sharing sales numbers as they are a private company, she seemed very excited about the future and the potential of the company. You decide!

Man, my Ouya has been stuck downloading for over an hour. Hasn't even moved an inch. This is the third try... :(
I don't understand what's going on.

I tried restarting it and everything all night last night and finally this morning when I tried it again it downloaded the software update and actually worked.

Goal: get 5.1 working with Ouya.  I got the latest non-Amazon XBMC (Gotham) build.  I set things to 5.1 surround, with pass-through, but my 5.1 mp4 file isn't playing.  I notice Gotham XBMC's audio is locked to "android,audiotrack" and not HDMI.  Any ideas?

Ha!  I wouldn't toy with your emotions like that.  The XBMC update is already live in Discover.  Just waiting on the Chupacabra OTA now.

The easiest way to make a Ouya game when you don't know how to code

Stencyl is a very complete WISIWIG game creation tool which can be used to program all kinds of 2D games without the need to deal with a single line of code. It works very much like 2 former Google products : App Inventor for Android and Google Blockly

Stencyl can be installed on Linux, Mac OS or Windows.

Registration is free and gives access to a lot of games that can be used to effectively learn to program without coding by literally disassemble each game brick by brick.

The only problem is while exporting your creations to Flash format is free, a subscription plan is needed to export to Android.

Here's a workaround :

Sideload the following apps on the Ouya

- Adobe Flash player
- Firefox

1) Make an awesome game with Stencyl with keyboard input enabled.

2) Export it to Flash (player)
3) Grab the the .swf and send it to your Ouya.

4) In Firefox settings enable plugins loading by default.
5) Download and install a Firefox addon that enables full screen mode.

6) Enter your Flash game's path of location in Firefox address bar like this :

file:///wherever_you_want.

7) Enable full screen mode, grab your controller and enjoy !

Thanks for sharing this! I've had somewhat serious thoughts about making a game for OUYA, but I don't know how to code at all. I'll definitely be looking into this.

+Patrick Dempsey I did that, eth0 is back in the settings menu but it can't get an IP address and my router doesn't see it at all.

I think the ethernet port is really loose. It may have been caused by the "Ouya on the side" habit that I have.

Brought my OUYA over to a friend's house recently. One thing I love about that console is how portable it is. He's a die-hard video gamer that owns a zillion consoles, including all the latest and greatest. There were a buncha guys there, so we played some party games: No Brakes Valet, King of the Opera, Gravity Gods, and (oh yes) Multi Birds. I showed him the various emulators I had installed on there (2600, NES, SNES). He was delighted to be able to play Battletoads again. By the time we were done, he wanted to buy an OUYA for himself. w00t.

When I first bought my OUYA, I made sure to buy a second controller so I could play games with a friend. (I'm one of those "social gamers" you hear about.) When I saw more 4p games start showing up in the appstore, I decided it was time get the third & fourth controllers. No regrets. Anytime neighbors come over, we hit the couch and play a game or two.

Will Amazon's Fire TV Gaming Controller Work With the OUYA? Has anyone tried it? I don't see why it wouldn't. I need a new controller and Amazon's looks more comfortable than the standard OUYA controller.

I'm curious. Have any of you used the Amazon controller? What do you think of it?

It is generally good, but reaching the top buttons is an awkward reach.

The buttons are a bit 'clicky' too if that makes sense. Generally good though.

Haven't tried it with an Ouya, but not laggy at all on a fire tv.

Haha, I think I'll actually install this just because of the name. Can I skip straight to this update from the update which got installed on the very first boot since the Kickstarter shipped? Or do I have to go through them all one by one? And no, I haven't booted it up again since that first time...

I have finally finished my extensive guide to helping people get CocoonJS (and their HTML5 projects!) running on the Ouya.

It covers most of what I've learned over the last few weeks of working with it and hints at some future posts I'm going to write to cover more advanced functionality and options.

As I note right at the top too, you can't sell CocoonJS projects on the Ouya store -- yet. That should be changing soon, but hasn't as of the time of this writing.
Note: While this guide should help you get HTML5 projects up and running on the Ouya using CocoonJS for testing purposes, you can't sell any project created with CocoonJS yet. That should change in...

Yep that sounds like the port, and the solder is loose. I would get it reported as eventually it will fail, and May short the board out too.
