Wow, people worked on Christmas Eve!:Connect Four: Zero Gravity v1.1
December 24, 2009jo3_sum has released his Connect 4 style game for the native firmware.
Glad to see another devolper for the native firmware    Welcome jo3_sum!Quote========================
Rules:
========================
The rules are extremely similar to Connect 4, but with a few twists. A player can insert his
or her own pieces from any angle of the playing field falling into the opposite direction.
And sometimes spaces are covered by black spots which block the way for falling  pieces.
First player to have their pieces 4 in a row wins!Discuss it here: http://boards.dingoonity.org/dingoo-releases/connect-four-zero-gravity-v1-1/connectfour_zerogravity_1.1.zip

Dmenu 0.6 for Dingux released

SavedLinuXgeeK brings news of a new Dmenu release:Hey everyone,
   Dmenu has reached that point again where another release is ready for the public.  In this the release a lot of work has happened internally to make the code base more stable, and to prepare it for upcoming changes.  And as opposed to the last release, this release should not require any changes on the user's part, apart from dropping in the new files. So without further ado, the changelist: Quote - Various bug fixes
- Added ability to use global resources in themes. 
    If you prefix a path in a theme with 'global:' it will pick up
    the file from the "resources" directory.  This allows for the sharing of
    fonts, sounds, images, etc.  Hopefully this will reduce the overall
    disk footprint of the menu.  Not sure, but the menu may also run
    better if multiple code points are using the same resource on disk
    …

C-Dogs SDL for Dingux

Arr … Shin-NIL has released a new game:Hello everybody.
Here is a initial release of C-Dogs SDL for Dingoo:
Binary: http://dl.openhandhelds.org/cgi-bin/dingoo.cgi?0,0,0,0,30,228
Source code: http://dl.openhandhelds.org/cgi-bin/dingoo.cgi?0,0,0,0,46,229
Known Issues / TODO ListThis version only can be played by 1 player; Need to translate PC keys names to Dingoo buttons names; Setting resolution greater than 320 X 240 will crash the system; Setting video scale factor greater than 1 will crash the system; Shutting down Dingux improperly (not using poweroff command) will corrupt the savedata and display segmentation fault when exit the game. Deleting directory /local/home/.cdogs will correct this; The game is not at fullspeed yet.
Thanks to D_Skywalk, darfgarf and vimrc.

Reality Bites (It really does!) - On to Plan B

Well, Mr Fry might appear at first glance to be terribly rude.  I’m sure he’s just terribly busy, and gets thousands of “Spruik me! Spruik me!” requests every day. So much so in fact that the small print on his Blog shows that he really has his act together on public contact:ContactsThe management for Stephen receives many enquires and requests. In all instances you must contact only once. Replicating your request across various contacts creates confusion.In order to ensure you contact the correct person.

Desperate times call for cheap publicity stunts: A free Dingoo from Dingoo-Scene – if you are Mr Stephen Fry

In July - too long ago - I wrote this chest thumping call to arms for Dingoo lovers everywhere.  In it, I declared that:unless we all made an effort to lift the Dingoo’s profile, it would die the Slow Tortured Death of GTZ (Gizmondo Tapwave Zodiac); andas no one on this planet is more than 6 degrees of separation from Kevin Bacon, it was inevitable that surely one of us must be linked to someone famous, who can be convinced to spruik the Dingoo, thus saving all our lazy bottoms.Sadly, the urgency which imbued my post is today, not less diminished. Here we are, 6 months on, and absolutely no one of any celebrity, minor, scandalous, self promoting, or otherwise, has emerged to promote the cause of this little machine that could. It is clear that more drastic action is required. Like bribery. I’ve made an executive decision that the subject of our bribery will be Mr Stephen Fry, actor, man-about town, raconteur and tech lover. Why you Mr Fry? Well, your blog indicates you know your tech,…

Dingux SNES9x – Game FAQ read function enabled

Image
Thanks to Elta for this Dingoonity post:Hello people
One thing I liked from the native OS emulators is the possibility to read the game FAQ from within the emulator.
I travel a lot by train and I wanted to play some SNES RPGs, but taking a printed copy of the FAQ with me isn't the most convenient solution. 
So I decided to modify snes9x to add the FAQ viewer functionality.
I'm publishing the source code here because the code can easily be reused for any emulator.
The archive also contains a precompiled modified version of snes9x.
The viewer is rather simple for now, and will only work with ASCII files.
Also all tab characters are replaced by a single space.
To use it, simply put a text file with the same name as your ROM and with extension '.txt' in the same folder.
For example if you load 'Chrono_Trigger.zip' the viewer will try to load 'Chrono_Trigger.txt'
Then you…
