The openhandheld comparison chart to rule them all has been updated!

If you’re struggling to tell your YDPG-19 from your JXD-602, there has now been an update to the fantastic open handheld comparison sheet, and you can find it here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AkPJuV-UtMLRdGNRZlRjTGNUVGhqRTNZT1dkaEN1dVE#gid=0

It now features the specs of 27 devices, in an easy to compare table. Kudos to BA Felton for making this!

DOSBox for Dingoo A-380/A-320e !

DOSBox for Dingoo A-380/A-320e

Here's DOSBox for the Dingoo A-380 and A-320e.

Don't ask for the source code because I didn't recompile it. I've been reading about DOSBox on the Ritmix RZX-50 and I thought if it's possible it should work on the Dingoo A-380 too. I decided to give it a try and changed the configuration settings and to my surprise it runs on the Dingoo A-380.

Here's a test version for the Dingoo A-380 and A-320e. I hope it's good enough to run some games.

New version of Gamekeyboard released for Android gaming consoles!

apeine from our forums reports:

Ok, folks,

A new gamekeyboard version (3.0.0) just came out yesterday, and YES, it does work on ICS. There is a new option "Advanced input detection", along with mapping all buttons and all hardkeys to such buttons. Just run your prefered game, position your controls and hide the keyboard! Voilá! Games running with physical buttons.
So far, I got Gangstar Rio to run well (in this game, you don't press the keypad on screen, just slide it). So choose this option on gamekeyboard and you are fit to run.

Alien Grey changes location of A380 custom firmware

Hi,

The download links for the Dingoo A-380 CFW are changed because there's to much traffic on my Dropbox account. I don't want them to close my account so I uploaded everything (CFW, tools, open-source games and emulators) on openhandhelds.

http://dl.openhandhelds.org/cgi-bin/dingoo.cgi

The emulator pack for the Dingoo A-380 CFW can be found here: http://www.putlocker.com/file/C6459B53D5667E7C

Please use the links to the A380 custom firmware so Alien Grey can keep his dropbox account!Smile

Note: You need an External MicroSD to use firmware V2.00.25 and later or you cant use the Audio Player, Video Player, Pictures and E-Book because the folders to store the files are moved to the external MicroSD card. I did this to have more space for game ROMs on the internal MicroSD card. Open-Source Emulators is linked to the "emulator" folder on the external MicroSD card. Open-Source Games is linked to the "game" folder on the external MicroSD card. SDL Games is linked to the "sdlgames" folder on the external MicroSD card. They show only the dge files. I've used an online translation program to translate Open-Source Emulators, Open-Source Games and SDL Games for the firmware. Let me know when it's wrong so I can fix it.
NEO-GEO zip format:
Download and extract the Dingoo A380 FBA Conversion Tool from Dingoo Technology. Copy the neogeo.zip from the rom folder to your Dingoo A380 "game" sub folder "neogeo" with your neogeo rom zips. Don't try to rename the zips or it won't work.
Note: A list of Neo-Geo games that work as a zip can be found here: http://boards.dingoonity.org/dingoo-technology-a380/games-confirmed-to-work-on-dingoo-a380/msg49383/#msg49383

Thanks to retrodd and Santo for making this list.
Original Dingoo A-380 emulators:
It's now possible to change and save the emulator settings. Changing brightness doesn't work with FC/Nintendo. Frame skipping isn't possible. The setting always returns back to 0.
Warning: Don't update the firmware if it's important for you to have the equalizer settings for the Audio Player. Dingoo Technology removed it in firmware V2.0016.
