GMU Music Player 0.7.0 Final

GMU Music Player 0.7.0 Final
March 30, 2010

wejp has updated GMU from beta to a final release

News source courtesy of GP32X.com

Quote

Finally: Gmu 0.7.0 is here!
After eight beta releases it is finally here: The Gmu Music Player version 0.7.0. This Gmu release comes with full source (GPLv2 licensed) and is available for the GP2X (with Open2X firmware), the GP2X Wiz, the Dingoo A320 (with Dingux) and the Ben NanoNote.
Please note that due to the new theme engine old Gmu skins are no longer compatible with this release. Creating new themes is rather simple though. For those who are interested in creating Themes for Gmu, just have a look at the supplied default theme for now. If I find some time, I�ll write a little theme creation tutorial later on.
Compared to the last beta release there are only a few minor changes and bug fixes. Most of these changes are relevant for porting Gmu to new devices and are less visible to the end user. Still, it is worth upgrading Gmu even if you have been using the last beta release, as some bugs have been fixed.

UAE4ALL Update on its way!


Progress on UAE4ALL

« on: Today at 09:58:08 AM »


Hi,
Chui has asked me to update you on progress with UAE4ALL following the preview release a few weeks back.
He has been working hard to add additional features to the emulator and fix some minor bugs and hopes to issue the next release soon!
At stage it is hoped the following will be added.
- Mouse support
- Save states
- A super throttle mode to help skip through long load times, intros, etc.
- Quick controls to adjust volume, brightness, overclocking and throttle.
I have been helping him with some of the testing and he has asked that I attach the compatibility list (see PDF below). This is a list of the games tested for the development of the emulator, if a game is not on here it hasn't been tested. This games are the same as the list on his website relating to the Dreamcast version, plus a few of my favorites.
The great news is that compatibility is high and most of what has been tested works, most also offer a good level of playability, I have only encountered a few that aren't playable.
As I say the release should be issued soon!  Smiley

Great news, from Dingoonity!

March 18, 2010

Quote

Defeat Me! is a simple shooting arcade game where you fight against past versions of yourself

After you have beating all the enemies of a level, a version of how you played that version gets added as an enemy to the next level. So any movement you do or any bullet you fire, will fire you back in the next level. Be careful!

Also, each level has time which is represented as an slowly advancing row of bullet.

This game is known to work on GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows platforms.

Monochrome Worlds

Monochrome Worlds for Dingux
March 18, 2010

Quote

Monochrome Worlds is a simple puzzle game where players must help two people reach a common goal. These two people, one of them black and the other white, live in different worlds and must work together in order that both of them reach the gray-colored spot, which is the only place where they can share the same space.

In order to help the other, each character can toggle some of the game's blocks from one world to the other and back again. This can lead to some interesting situations where a character must remove a block from the other's world in order to let her companion pass through.

It is a remake of a Flash-based game called Monochro Observer created by Tatsuya Koyama. The motivation behind the remake was to be able to play the game in environments that have no Flash players available, such as the GP2X.

This game is known to work on GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows platforms

A sad, sad story …

In the very earliest days of this site, I tried hard to work out who makes the Dingoo. Some hints are here, and here, and as best as we can tell, it seems that there are 2 Dingoo companies, and they all belong to one company … or something. Anyway, it’s all quite mysterious and impenetrable. For a machine that’s sold just a few more than a dozen copies (*sarcasm, viewers, sarcasm*), you’d think someone in China’d be trying really really hard to export more of them. The way we see the Dingoo managed from China though, it seems as if no one really has central control of the machine – what with pawed, unpawed, rebranded versions, and fake new models – and now, look at the below, just a few Euro short as well! I wonder if all this seeming lack of awareness about how well the Dingoo is doing outside China has anything to do with the great firewall of China? (Segue: Stop the imposition of a similar firewall in Australia! Click here to stop Senator Steve “Killjoy” Conroy!).

Anyway, this post I found from Geek Never Cook (“I have no mouse, and I must scream!”) doesn’t really shed any more light on who owns, makes, or controls the Dingoo … but we could pass the hat around:):

I have heard a story about Dingoo Games, a mobile game company in Chengdu. I can’t verify the authenticity of the email in the story, and it can describe some kind of real situation of game industry in China. So I public here.

Dingoo Game is a small mobile game company in the city I live in. It’s small, but not weak. They have won many prize international and national like nominated for the IGF Mobile 2008 of the “Technical Achievement” category. I found an essay says that when IMGA invite they to attend MWC2008, by lack of money, they refused the opportunity. Below is the email they replied to the IMGA.

Hello Jessica,

We are DingooGames.
I did read your mail, very carefully, and my reply was absolutely serious.

I noticed the price you mentioned, of course, it’s 6.300 EUR, am I right?

I totally believe that it’s a very low price seems to you, and I know that MWC2008 is a very important congress, and if we attend it, we are very probable to find good opportunities. And after all, we are invited as an IMGA nominee.

Yes I know everything listed above, so I can feel your surprise!

But I must say: We really have not enought money to attend, please, please listen to my explanation:

We are a small company. We have only 11 employees, including me.
The average salary of us is 200 EUR, per month. I’m not joking…

So, 6.300 EUR is really too high – for us, not to say the tickets and other expenses…

We know the congress is very important to us, we want to attend it badly, but, we really can’t.

If possible, we need your help. We make good games, but we don’t even have the money to attend a conference.

And I think that’s why we are join the IMGAwards.

If possible, we need your help.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon,

Best regards,

DingooGames
Tang

Maybe it’s just a selling strategy to let more Chinese user buy their product because I don’t find the original post. However, it indeed described the embarrassing situation in Chinese game industry. Chinese can get pirated game easily, game company can’t get enough money to develop. Compared with other fallen company, Dingoo is lucky enough. How long can their luck last if things like the mail said, god knows.

dx1-Rebirth for Dingux

d1x-rebirth for DINGUX!
March 15, 2010

Zear the myth, the legend, and all around nice guy has released d1x-rebirth!

Quote

Hello everyone. Today, I've ported a new game - d1x-rebirth
D1X-Rebirth is a Source Port of the Descent Engine and provides classical Gameplay combined with a bunch of improvements and new features.

The game is the same on the Dingoo.

Installation (read HOWTO_INSTALL):
1) Copy ".d1x-rebirth" dir to "/local/home"
2) Copy "d1x-rebirth" dir to your favourite location
3) Copy the ORIGINAL DATA FILES to "[your_location]/d1x-rebirth/Data"
4) Run "d1x-rebirth.dge"

Controls:
UP              - pitch forward
DOWN            - pitch backward
LEFT            - turn left
RIGHT           - turn right
A               - fire primary weapon
X               - fire secondary weapon
B               - slide on
Y               - bank on
L               - reverse
R               - accelerate
START           - cycle primary weapon
SELECT          - cycle secondary weapon
POWER          - map

START + R       - options menu
SELECT + L      - save menu
SELECT + R      - load menu
START + SELECT  - exit

All the controls are customizable in the menu.

Bugs:
* "whistle" instrument from the midi soundtrack in level 2 produces a high pitched sound. This is believed to be a timidity bug and is not d1x related:
  (http://welltemperedstudio.wordpress.com/2007/12/29/timidity-problems-solved/)
  It is recommended to disable music for this level.
* Can't manually assign SELECT to any key mapping

Tomorrow I'll look into d2x-rebirth, maybe I can get it to work as well. Stay tuned

Edit: Forgot to mention, this game is fully playable on the network. If you happen to use usb networking, that is

Joyrider’s FbGrabDaemon – Capture Dingoo screens in Dingux

FBGrab Deamon Version
What Is It ?
Fbgrab is a program that lets you take screenshots from games and emulators, however up until now it was only possible to use fbgrab from a commandline console (telnet).
I made the fbgrab program into a deamon so that it keeps running in the background and listens for a certain keypress (specified in the keyconfig file), if the key (combination)
has been pressed it will make a screenshot of whatever you are currently seeing on the dingoo screen.
How To use ?
first edit the keyconfig file to your liking, you can specify key combinations by just editing the current config file setting 1 if the key needs to be pressed or 0 if it doesn't.
for example this is the default keyconfig file where you'll have to press L+R+UP to make a screenshot:
SELECT=0
START=0

Do not delete any of the "not used keys" and also do not change the order of the file, after you have chosen your configiration, copy the fbgrab.dge and keyconfig file into a directory on your sd
and start the program. You won't see anything come up on the screen so when using a menu you will be returned directly back to it after running fbgrab.dge. The deamon should be running
now and whenever you press the key combination you have choosen a new screenshot will be generated in your local directy named Screenshot1.png, Screenshot2.png, Screenshot3.png... etc
It will never overwrite an existing screenshot !
Notes:
DO NOT RUN THE PROGRAM TWICE,
it doesn't make your dingoo explode but you will get double screenshots ! (obviously).
DO NOT FORGET TO COPY THE KEYCONFIG FILE AND DO NOT SET ALL KEYS TO 0
failing to do so will make the deamon keep taking screenshots
if you changed the keyconfig file while the deamon was already running you'll have to reboot the dingoo (or kill the previous running deamon process somehow) and restart the fbgrab deamon.
I couldn't figure out a way to let you (the user) know if they screenshot was succesfull or not (i tried audio and writing to the framebuffer but both were not a great option).
Anyway just test it out by using the default config and see if it creates your screenshots !

A much less irritating Dingoo review …

Certainly a lot better than the pubescent Tweeterman’s (hate mentioning it, but hey, freedom of expression and all that yah?). I do think it’s a shame Youtube Dingoo video reviewers never actually go on about Dingux in any detail.

Dingux kernel with CDC/ECM Support

Original Dingoonity thread:

Re: Rndis usb ethernet gadget problem on 64 bit Vista and up systems

« Reply #6 on: February 24, 2010, 10:29:31 PM »


Well, I decided to fetch and compile dingux kernel. I use "andLinux", and I had to overcome some config issues (e.g. neither "make menuconfig", "make gconfig" or "make xconfig" worked, and I didn't want to use naked "make config"), but let's leave my personal  system problems aside.
First of all, I fetched the Boukichi's version of kernel:
svn checkout http://dingux-code.googlecode.com/svn/linux-2.6.24.3-dingux/trunk/ dingux-code-read-only
(it took some time)
Then I ran "make a320_defconfig" and "make menuconfig" from dingux-code-read-only dir (the kernel's source root), and set my LCD driver to 9331 using procedure described in README.A320.
After that I went in the kernel menu to
Device Drivers->USB Support->USB Gadget Support
and
1) disabled "RNDIS Support (EXPERIMENTAL)"
2) entered "USB Gadget Drivers" and picked "Ethernet Gadget (with CDC Ethernet support)"
Then I compiled the kernel with "make zImage" and voila - now I have a kernel with CDC/ECM support and without RNDIS.
So I copied it to the root of my SD card.
Then I downloaded driver you mentioned, but it wasn't enough. In order to use it I had to modify one line in file
<path>\Thesycon\CdcEcm\V1.8.0_Demo\idisk\x86\cdcecm_demo.inf
The line
%S_DeviceDesc%=_Install,USB\VID_VVVV&PID_PPPP
should be replaced with:
%S_DeviceDesc%=_Install,USB\VID_0525&PID_A4A1
Now I connect my Dingoo to PC, install the driver using the inf file above, and voila - the connection works, it's rock stable
Of course, for file transfer don't forget to use FileZilla (at IP 10.1.0.2) and nothing else - it's the only known working FTP client.
As for driver that works only 4 hours and requires PC restart after - I think it's not that critical. My development sessions are much shorter, and I don't mind to reboot sometimes to restart the driver.
Joyrider, thank you a lot for this idea !!
I think we should let booboo know about your findings.
P.S. After researching the net and booboo's blog I see that RNDIS driver is indeed broken, and various workarounds didn't help, or at least didn't help to everybody. This makes CDC/ECM a great replacement and I am really happy. Thank you again !
