Booboo updates Dingux boot loader for ILI9338 Chip

Support added for new LCD type (ILI9338)

A couple of maintenance releases, which basically boild down to the addition of support for a new LCD type, ILI9338. The support was implemented and tested by ChinaChip, I just prepared the dual boot installer and added the new zImage to the old system package.
Check out the google code downloads page here.

Gamebox Rom loading update

Justin further reports:

It appears that you must have the newer bios version in order for the ROMS to work with your Gamebox:
V1.0Build85b , if you have any build lower than that, it won't work :(
To check, hold START / SELECT on power on to see version of your Gamebox

CPS1 CPS2 NEOGEO PGM roms on Gamebox load from MicroSD?

Ibarasc claims you can load MAME roms for the Gamebox from Dealextreme. Even has instructions on how to do it:
http://www.dealextreme.com/forums/Default.dx/sku.54070~threadid.876650
Anyone try those zip's he mentioned on an Micro SD card and got it to work?

Thanks to Justin for the tip!

Here are the instructions:

I play successully additional games on from my microsd card :
1 - find and download BIOS files : pgm.zip and neogeo.zip. This is a must to play more games.
2 - find cps1 or cps2 or neogeo roms (zip files) and download them.
3 - copy bios and roms to microsd card (DONT extract zip)
4 - for neogeo, the first launch is very slow, please wait (gamebox unzip roms inside the microsd card and write .mvs file).
The next time you want to run your neogeo roms select .mvs file it loads faster !
CPS1 runs not very well, CPS2 is ok, and NEO GEO near perfect !
For PGM, I only test with Knight Of Valour (file kov.zip and pgm.zip on my microsd card). First launch is slow like neogeo roms, you must wait that the gamebox decompress files.
At this time, i cannot run snes, nes, genesis roms ! please test roms and send me infos
I test 2 or 3 CPS3 roms but it seems not to work. It loads (slowly) and reboot the gamebox.

Dingux running on A380

Dingoo A380 Runs Linux After All…

If you listen carefully you should be able to hear the sound of me furiously chewing away on my hat. According to outsiderjohnson and Zear on the Dingoonity forums, the new Dingoo Technologies A380 is running Linux, and they have evidence to support it.

Check this:

So just for the hell of it, I downloaded Snes9x for the A320, and put it on the Dingoo and tried to run it. I renamed it snex9c.dge and placed it in plug-ins folder, and tried to run it in file browser but nothing happened.

I then renamed the original SNES emulator sfc_emu.dge to sfcold.dge2 and renamed SNEX9C to sfc_emu.dge and went into the menu system and tried to run a SNES game, the system locked up, but lo and behold I heard the music playing for the SNES game, but was still forced to look at the menu screen.

So A320 Apps APPEAR to work, they just need to be tweaked I’d suppose for the correct display.

And this, from Zear:

From the quick look at the firmware files, i can say the following:

* the system A380 is running is Linux (./uImage_oob: u-boot legacy uImage, Linux-2.6.24.3L009-g84074b29-dir3710\235\23402vmlinux.bin, Linux/MIPS, OS Kernel Image (gzip), 1183771 bytes, Wed Apr  6 11:55:42 2011, Load Address: 0×80010000, Entry Point: 0x801EAF80, Header CRC: 0xF59EBB75, Data CRC: 0x652E5F56)

* the menu system is (most likely) based on dmenu. Or at least I can find dmenu config files inside

* the rootfs is filled with GPLed stuff, like emulators and applications developed for Dingux by Joyrider, Sience, Darfgarf and Slaanesh, among the others

* they didn’t even bother to change the readme or config files, I can find copies of the GPL license from the emulator directories, along with the names of our scene members involved in the porting process to DA320

Good news, no source code though.

PSX4ALL DX V1.0B

PSX4ALL DX V1.0B

 playstation 1 one sony Psx4All DX v1.0b

Streak launched an updated emulator Psx4All . In this version, the author made ​​changes and redesigned the interface of the emulator. We also made ​​adjustments to the default emulator. I want to recall here, for those who know or do not remember such a program, that our beloved Dingoo won the port of an emulator of the classic PlayStation 1 (in this case, the Psx4All ) in mid-October 2009. The person responsible for making such a feat was Buddy Uli . Its release at the time was a sort of revolution for the console, as it can highlight even more the great potential of it. If you do not know how to proceed with the installation of the emulator, I suggest you access our tutorial on installing it. To access it, click here .

New Dingux-MSX mod: PixaMod

April 06, 2011, 04:00:11 PM by jagotu

This guy modded (read: made better) dingux-msx. It's his first post in this board, so don't be shy to say thanks, otherwise he will run away to another community ;)

Quote

I have made a mod of Dingux-MSX. It is based on Dingux-MSX 1.1.0 by Zx-81, but I added the changes from Caanoo-MSX 1.1.1 and some ideas from Cax mod, besides from adding my own stuff
These are the changes since Dingux-MSX 1.1.0:
* Updated the Z80 emulation to the latest fMSX one
* Emulation of M1 cycles: R register is now fully emulated and cycles are more accurate.
* Fix sound speed issue - UPeriod parameter in settings menu (from Caanoo-MSX 1.1.1)
* Adjust max FPS when changing between PAL/NTSC mode (from Caanoo-MSX 1.1.1)
* Fixed joystick emulation: joystick 2 must not be a copy of joystick 1
* Fixed color 0 in MSX2 sprites
* Full color depth in Screen 8
* Fixed initial memory mapping for ASCII8 and ASCII16 megaroms
* New megarom type: RTYPE
* Megarom detection with SHA1 checksum with file carts.sha (based on Cax mod)
* Tweaked the built-in megarom type detection to improve its accuracy
* Added setting to force a specific megarom type
* FM-PAC is not loaded if FM emulation disabled
* Sound is shut down when the MSX is reset
* Render modes: "zoomed" and "fullscreen" (based on Cax mod)
* More accurate speed limiter
* Faster emulation
* Changed the default CPU timing for Dingux from 200MHz to 300MHz
* Modified the button layout to have Joy-Fire2 at button B

JXDM1000 –the games that come with it

OFF - JXD M1000 - Games that come on CD's

Good evening everyone!

The JXD (both the M1000 as the 3000) come with four game covers (you can see the photos of my unboxing, and also in pictures DealExtreme for 3000). Each skin contains two CD's totaling 8. If these games are in the main memory of your device, GAME folder, the game name below the icon will turn yellow and you can start the game by that shortcut.However, if the game is on the memory card, you can not use the shortcut (weird, huh?). Well, here are the lists of games they see on these CD's.

1A -

  • X-Men vs Street figher EX Edition (not like this version, you can not replace a fighter during the fight!)
  • Advanced VG 2
  • Pocket figher
  • Samurai Deeper Kyo (Limited Edition)
  • Metal Slug X (runs VERY well!)
  • Dance Dance Revolution 5th Mix
  • Musashi
  • PAC - MAN
  • Strikers 1945

1B

  • Kaiti Taisensou
  • Suiko Enbu
  • Gunbird
  • Stahlfeder
  • Mortal Kombat Trilogy
  • Super Puzzle figher II X
  • Tekken 3 (Runs very, very bad)
  • Kamen Rider The Bike Race Simple Characters 2000 Series

2A

  • Parappa The Rapper
  • Puzzle Bobble 4
  • Capcom Generations 4
  • Street figher Zero 3
  • Asuka 120% Burning Fest Final
  • The King of Fighters 1999
  • Castlevania Chronicle Akumajou Dracula (SNES is adapted to run on the PSX, early in the game. And, amazingly, does not run well!)
  • Front Mission 3
  • G Darius

2B

  • The Kurau II Tenchi In Akakabe Tatakai
  • Mortal Kombat II (the early period of the PSX. Weak, but runs fine)
  • Star Gladiator - Episode 1 - Final Crusade
  • Devil Dice
  • Odo Odo Oddity
  • Rockman X4 (2D Like any game, runs very well!)
  • Crisis Beat
  • Captain Commando (yes, the arcade game!)
  • Yaniku Bugy

3A

  • Parasite Eve (Disc 1 and 2
  • Spongebog Squarepants - Supersponge
  • Jojo Bizarre Adventure
  • Kakuge - Yaro Fighting Game
  • Salamander Deluxe Pack Plus
  • Real Bout Garou Densetsu Special Dominated Mind
  • The King of Fighters 98 (runs very well. Too bad my PSX control is bad!)
  • Bish Bashi Special 3 - Step Champ

3B

  1. Ace Combat
  2. Two Tenkaku
  3. Firemen 2 - The Pete & Danny
  4. Magical Drop
  5. Strikers 1945
  6. Rockman 8 Metal Heroes
  7. Raiden DX
  8. Agent Armstrong
  9. Mr. Driller
  10. Korokoro Postnin

  • Gunbullet
  • Elemental Gearbolt

4B

  • Sonic Wings Special
  • Calcolo!
  • Bomberman World
  • Samurai Spirits IV - Amakusa Revenge Special
  • Akumajou Dracula X Gekka No Yasoukyoku
  • The King of Fighters 1997
  • Bakumatsu Roman Gekka No Kenshi
  • Hot Shots Golf 2
  • Raystorm
  • Winning Eleven 2000 (runs slowly)

These are the games that come with the unit.

It's amazing consistency with his control of the PS 1 and 2. When you use a dualshock2, if the Analog button is on, it does not work, prepared only in games (like Resident Evil and Winning Eleven). After testing the original control unit (2 Dualshock a fake, but good) I am using a wireless Dualshock 2 and it works normally.

From this list of games, not play a big part. Of those who played, so far confirm the expectations generated by JXD 3000: The device emulates great games 2D, 2.5D games reasonably well and not the purely 3D. Since there is no option frameskip, some games are bad. Do not believe the lag in emulation of 3D gaming hinder an RPG, but you can play, yes.

In coming days, upo some videos and do a review Fulfil more. Up!

Kudos to Dingoobr.com for news on yet another gadget we don’t need, but must have!

Dingoo Brazil unboxes the JXD M1000 – PS1 emulator thingie …!

First, you can get one here: http://www.dealextreme.com/p/jxd-m1000-home-console-multimedia-player-with-hdmi-av-sd-slot-56491

Here’s what’s in the box

Off - JXD M1000 Unboxing

Look who's back!

Well, very much later, I return here to DingooBR are proud of the work being done by all. The site has grown, it has thousands of hits, is important in the scene world of blogs being cited in several other languages, in Dingoonity, etc.. Congratulations to all!

I think most visitors here know the JXD blog. This Chinese company launching live players, handheld games and the like. The latest release of the company, and this aroused the curiosity of the community of Mobile, was the JXD 3000, the first Chinese to emulate the portable Playstation (PSX). Yes, via Dingux Dingoo emulates, but the emulation is not ideal and have no sound. Since the 3000 emulates JXD reasonably well.

Building on the success, the company, such as the Letcool, cast your laptop into a desktop version. This is the JXD M 1000. In addition to emulate PSX, it also runs up to 720p video, plays music, photos and allows you to read ebooks, txt format (can not believe that someone will read an ebook on TV, but ...). The island is interesting, since it uses the original controls of the PSX / PSX 2, in addition to having a remote control to use the multimedia functions.

The JXD you're here, I have to give a big thanks to the staff of Dingoo Imports, Pedro and Ricardo Bueno, for trusting me to do these tests with the machine. I was flattered, really! Thank you for the opportunity, I intend to do all the tests possible and impossible for the community. Thanks anyway!

Well, the first thing you do when you receive the unit is open the box. This is called unboxing and what I did. Serves, if someone bought a JXD in the future, know exactly what's in the box. So let the pictures:
