FreePrince running on Dingux

Image
zear got FreePrince running on Dingux. Unfortunally FreePrince hasn’t been updated for a long time, and can’t be considered playable in this state. Perhaps this could give someone motivation to continue the project though.You’ll find the FreePrince project  here.To try it, you can download it for the Dingoo here. Don’t forget that you will need the original game data aswell.

More videos of Gnuboy, soon finished

Here’s yet another cool video from joyrider showing Gnuboy running on native OS. Since this video was made, loading times are much faster and it has frameskip functionality (good for a few GBC games which doesn’t run in full speed).here's another video of gnuboy, showing the menu, and some games, the savestates (9 per game), the frames (which can be personalised per game) in non fullscreen mode and the fullscreen mode in action. I did notice a bug with the frame not being loaded after the loading screen (while recording this video) so will fix that. All that's left todo is some twiddling with the sound. And perhaps if i can find it the slowdown that occasionally occurs during a game (which isn't fps related unless my fps counter doesn't work hehe ;) )

An interview with sweetlimre

Image
sweetlilmre, who is responsible for Dingux VICE - which IMHO is the best thing since antipasto or laksa - very kindly took the time to respond to some Dingoo-scene Q’s.  Hi there sweetlimre.Tell us something about yourself. How old are you, what do you do for a crust, are you married/single/in high school/a very intelligent 9 year old - all that stuff?I am 35 and work for a multinational software development company. I am married and have 3 children.Did you have a C64? If yes, what's your warmest memory of it?My first full time PC was a C64. I first learnt to program on an Apple II clone my dad used to bring home from work on the weekends. Finally I nagged my folks enough that they got me a C64. I think learning binary so that I could draw sprites was one of the most amazing moments, I was about 10 at the time and binary was HARD! :)Any favourite games?Bruce Lee, Monty Mole, Mercenary (soooo many hours), Lode Runner. Too many to mention.What's your coding/porting track record …

eksasol’s Dingux installation guide

eksasol has put together a short guide on installing Dingux:Quick instruction I wrote on how to install Dingux to Dingooby eksasol on Sun Sep 20, 2009 11:17 am Please bear in mind, I am not an expert and I haven't watched dingoo-scene's man videos. These are methods that I took from the Dingux's readme to flash the Dingoo so it can dualboot and install Dingux files into an SD card. Basically I've tried it make as easy to understand as possible so those who haven't already have Dingux running on their Dingoo may be able to. Also it won't cover too much depth, I wrote this in a single day. This instruction is for Windows OS only.http://fssi.x10hosting.com/dingoo.htmThere are quite a few of these around, including this … ahem … pretty useful one .. but there can never be too many! Cheers eksasol.

Dingoo review on Techradar.com

I just noticed this review on techradar.com.  As the Dingoo becomes increasingly viable, more and more sites are covering it, which can only be a good thing!

Check out the um … SP2?!

New dualboot installer by Booboo – fixes flash write error problem

Straight from Dingux.com:Testing new dual-boot installerI've just released a new dual-boot installer in the hope that it fixes the "flash write error" problem some users have experienced. The error is caused by one or more bad pages in the first block of NAND. This is normal and there is a mechanism that was supposed so handle it but wasn't working. As I don't have bad pages in this first block in my two A320s, I can't test it myself, so, until someone reports that it is working for him, consider it beta.
UPDATE: so far three success reports. Yeah, looks like this bug is squashed!.   Grab it here: http://code.google.com/p/dingoo-linux/downloads/list

Sucky Space Invaders for Dingux

The very unassuming diab has released a game:
Sucky (seriously) Space Invadersby diab on Sun Sep 13, 2009 5:56 pm Hello,
I did some coding and this time I'm gonna release my unfinished work (executable+sources) instead of letting it rot away on my HD. I used Harteex's toolchain and his astrolander sources as a basis, so it compiles the same way as described in http://a320.freeforums.org/guide-how-to-compile-apps-for-dingoo-native-os-without-sdk-t814.html.
Maybe someone feels like finishing it or optimizing it in some way, it's a bit buggy and missing a lot... I also think it could run faster :/
If you just wanna check it out without compiling it, put the target.app on your dingoo and execute. AttachmentsSucky_Space_Invaders.rar

SameGoo is an implementation of the simple but popular SameGame.
The goal is get a high score.
Selecting an object will clear that object and all connected objects of the same color.
You cannot clear a single object, it must be connected to at least one other.
If a gap occurs between columns of objects, then the right-most ones will be moved left.
The more objects you clear at once, the higher score you will get. Download Game, Source, Mirror

A disposable Dingoo

DX has recently put these on:It’s a handheld, powered by 3 AAA batteries, and it comes with 100 built in games.  The games are sprite-changed NES games, apparently.  These are the games, and here is a screenshot of “Shrek Bros” (that’sJUST NOT RIGHT, I say, gawddarnnit!):OK, we’ve seen things like this before, but not for the scandalous price of $19.99 – shipping included.  Any lower and DX will surely become another victim of the GFC. Needless to say, I’ve ordered one, so expect a write up in about, oh, 6 weeks (this is DX, after all). As per usual, if this appeals to you, click here to buy a blue one or here for a white one, and I’ll get some of those lovable DX points.

Vice Commodore C64 Emulator (beta)

Image
This port is based on the excellent gp2x port and the work of A600 (microlib, ported to gp2x minimal lib compatibility).

At the moment the following known issues exist:

1. Sound lags.
2. Overclocking might be a bit... dodgy
3. Buttons are swapped back to gp2x orientation (B is fire/select etc.)

Buttons:

Select: Menu
RTrig: stats
LTrig: VKBD
START + LEFT / RIGHT: Volume down / up control (bit flaky at the moment).

Please launch the various .dge files, direct launch of the executables will not work.
This has been tested in dmenu and dinguxmb and seems to work well.
Apologies for the dodgy alpha, but it was... an alpha :)

Fixed in this release:
Palette issuesTrue Drive emulation now works!!!Unzip of files now works (bug in gp2x version)Reset C64 works (bug in gp2x version)Added plus4 and vic20 emulators (haven't tested too much and vic20 seems incorrectly scaled?)
Get it here: vice beta

Interview: Justin Barwick of Dingoo-Digital-USA

Bytejacker posted an interview with Justin of Dingoo-Digital-USA. For the regular visitor of Dingoo-Scene, there won’t be much new information, but it could still be an interesting read.It’s also great to see that this may help the Dingoo to reach more people.Bytejacker (via Dingoo-Digital.com)

Flaky ‘net connection …

My ISP is about as flaky as puff pastry at the moment, so I may not be able to get on as much as I like to post.  Hopefully, a technician will fix this come Monday.

Nanoo Nanoo, Ben NanoNote

Readers of Booboo’s most excellent Dingux.com will have noticed a very subtle understated reference to the great dood himself receiving a prototype NanoNote.  The more curious among you would have instantly googled ajnd come to this page, which would reveal that the NanoNote is this beastie:You can read more about the NanoNote here, but to save you the click, it has the following specs:336 MHz XBurst Jz4720 MIPS-compatible CPU display: 3.0” color TFT resolution: 320 x 240, 16.7M color dimension (mm): 99 x 75 x 17.5 (lid closed) weight: 126 g (incl. battery) DRAM: 32MB Synchronous DRAM headphone jack (3.5 mm) SDHC microSD 850mAh Li-ion battery 2GB NAND flash memory mini-USB: USB 2.0 High-Speed Device speaker and microphone This device is planned for release in Fall 2009, which means a lot to me here in Oz in August 2009, but I like the 2009 part of it anyway.  This is an open standards device with a CPU based on the same chip die as the one on the Dingoo, so there’s a lot to be excited…

Recompiled Dingux GNUBoy with remapped keys

Image
GP2xs got sick of the GNUboy keymap, and so he rolled his own.  Grab it here: GNUBoy with updated key mappings and save stateby gp2xs on Tue Sep 08, 2009 2:25 am Hi,
I compiled joyrider’s Dingoo port of GNUBoy with booboo’s latest toolchain.
Made some simple changes to the default key mappings in main.c.
Switched the B and A buttons and mapped X and L buttons to save and load state which works.
The in-game saves work as before.
The Dingoo GNUBoy keys are:
B=B
A=A
X=Save State
L=Load State
R=Quit
I have not tested the save states extensively so back up your SD in case something goes wrong.
Before trying this you should back up your current game saves located in:
/local/home/.gnuboy/saves/Your Rom Names.sav
This version should work with previous in-game saves.
PS: Special thanks to joyrider for posting the updated sourc…

Flash write failed error – Booboo explains; help if you can!

Image
Some users have been encountering the “Flash write failed” error (FWF – also known as the A320-FU and not quite the RROD, but let’s see if it’ll stick) when attempting to flash their firmware to the dualboot installer for Dingux.  Booboo explains the likely cause, and recommends some options here:Hi all,
Sorry for being so unreachable lately. After vacation I have a pile of stuff here at work like never before.
Would please those with the flash write failure problem answer a question: is this the first time you install dual-boot?.
The dual boot installer contains a stripped-down kernel (no MMC, no network, etc) and a minimal root filesystem in an initramfs embedded in the kernel image. The rootfs contains the necessary programs to erase and write the first NAND flash block, together with the actual data to write.
So far, all releases of the dual-boot installer do have the same kernel and rootfs, except for the actual data written to flash. Th…

Frodo (Commodore 64) for Dingoo Preview

This is just a preview and there is still plenty more that needs doing.
Emulator Installation

Executable = "./dingoo64.sh"

Selector = yes

C64 on its way to Dingux

The cries and begging for a C64 emulator may soon be over, now that mrLogan has answered the call.A little bit of good news:
As of this morning my Dingux powered dingoo is happily running imposible mission for the Commodore 64 ,Full speed & Full Sound, oh yes!
It's still going to need a few tweaks such as:
Switching between keyboard, joystick 1 and joystick 2
Virtual Keyboard
File selector
Also its running with support for .d64 files i.e. no zip support, however I was thinking it wouldn't take much to add a batch script to the front end which would unzip a zip file containing a .d64 before running it. If I use the same name for the .d64 everytime then it shouldn't create additional space requirements and provide zip support "on the cheap" so to say.Let the celebration begin!Source

Those of you who have been following this story know that Booboo has been intending to port Linux to the Gemei 760, the Dingoo’s distant cousin, but had some obstacles in the way of this project, with the main one being not having a Gemei 760.  Well, thanks to DX, that problem is now solved.Booboo has now ripped it apart – as you do - read more here: http://www.dingux.com/2009/09/gemei-x760.html !
