Sdd1 now supported on SNES9X …

… or something like that:Snes9x 1.3.9ff ver20100221 for Dingux updated again!
February 21, 2010SiENcE has released a new version of the SNES9x that now supports SDD1QuoteI added full SDD1 support. So you don't need graphicpack anymore ;-)
Author/Porter: SiENcE
Download: those a little less in the know on SNES hardware, a quick google tells me that:The sdd-1 and spc7110 were custom chips built onto some later snes carts that acted as decompressors for certain gfx data on these carts. both chips had little or no documentation and no-one up till now could figure out the compression algorithm for the sdd-1. So: runs better, goes faster, uses less gas and with no carbon emissions!

Last Christmas, I wrote you a FAQ; the very next day, you gave me a Wii …

reelclerk collated/wrote a Dingoo FAQ on Christmas eve last year which deserves (slightly) more prominence if you’re beginner on this device.  It’s equally useful if you’ve had the device for months but never ventured beyond the e-book reader:Dingoo A320 FAQ - Got these from all over the place, I am sure people will let the post know if there is a correction. Q. How easy is it to load games onto the Dingoo A320?
A. Very easy - just drag and drop the files onto the Dingoo using the USB disk interface. Works like an external HD.
Q. Do the games have to be placed in specific directories to work?
A. No, games can be placed anywhere, although it is a good idea to arrange them according to the machine they run under, for example GBA, MVS, CPS1, CPS2, etc.
Q. How does the Dingoo A320 know which emulator to use to play a game?
A. Each emulator has a file type mapped to it. When a game is selected, the console checks the file…

Cax updates ScummVM!

The hardworking Cax, inspired by, um, greatness, has improved ScummVM for us all:13/02/2010 - ScummVM On Dingoo As It Was Meant To Be (my mod of ChaoticBob's Dingux port of ScummVM):
I wanted to play Larry on ScummVM, but it had no virtual keyboard.
As I discovered later, in fact it has 2 keyboards built-in, but requires adding a file and a code modification to use them.
In addition I enabled all engines ScummVM supports, added missing files, upgraded to 1.0.0 sources, and stripped the binary.
Here is a binary package of ScummVM 1.0.0 for
Zip file contains directory named "scummvm". Extract the zip into local/emulators folder.

The best Dingoo emulators for each platform

I dunno about you, but it used to be easy remembering what was emulated, and what was not on the Dingoo. We’ve certainly come a long way from the early days of the handful of native in-built native emulators only. I dunno about you, but it used to be easy remembering what was emulated, and what was not on the Dingoo. This Dingoonity thread will help you work it all out:

Why is this man troubled?

Watch the video. Far be it for me to speak in support of the big bad evil world of investment bankers, but should the dude really be sacked for appreciating a beautiful woman? Join the cause here:
