Countdown v1 – again with the watch thing!

Countdown v1 May 30, 2010 Here is another nice little app from xdpirate Quote Presenting, a countdown timer for Dingux! Just fire that sucker up, use the D-PAD to set the time, and press A to start the countdown! LEFT/RIGHT adjusts seconds, UP/DOWN adjusts minutes. Source code is included, though the source is a horrid mess. It kept hanging and stopping and I couldn't figure out why, so it looks like something a 10-year old wrote right now. But it works! If I ever decide to update this, I'll probably clean up the source :3 If you feel like cleaning it up for me, be my guest! xD Extract to /local/apps/. It doesn't take any commandline parameters, everything is controlled within the application itself. Press A to switch between countdown mode and time set mode. You can use the font and alarm sound of your choice if you replace font.ttf and alarm.mp3! Enjoy!

flatmush reviews the A330

Thanks flatmush and Dingoonity! My Dingoo Technology A330 Review OK, lets start my review on this beast now it has arrived (massive thanks to Dingoo Digital USA). I'm going to take an advantages/disadvantages approach. Screen Looks a bit better, though some of that could be firmware modification. On my A330 the screen is squashed against the case in such a way that when buttons are pressed it distorts the LCD and makes it look awful. Controls The DPAD is easier to get diagonals on, but overall feels worse to use than the spongy a320 DPAD. The buttons are too sticky and bad to play any serious game with and even make it hard to operate the menus. You can really only use this device with the optional controller (which I'll come to later). The triggers are better than on the a320 no doubt about it, but they're not really a big selling point and th

Can someone help Denny flush his Dingoo’s memory?

A plea for help from one of our readers: Hello, Cool site very informative.  I had a question regarding the memory of the Dingoo. It lookslike I am only using 1.4 GB of memory but the free space is only showing a few hundred MB. I think the continuous play is storing some movies.  I can't see them when I plug the usb into my Ubuntu machine.  My other vista pc does not recognize the Dingoo through usb. How do I clear out the memory of the continuos play movies? Thanks. Can anyone help?

To lose one Dingoo native 3d games pack is unfortunate; to lose two is sheer carelessness!

And just in case you did lose all of them carelessly, here they are again: Official 3D Games Pack Hi, Here is a download that contains all the official games for the Dingoo A320 that I could find. If a game is not an official Dingoo game or there is a game that's missing please let me know & I'll update the download. Keep in mind that some games share multiple names (Mahjong + Link 'Em Up | Puzzle Pobble + Popo Bash etc). Additionally, some games on the Dingoo Games website are for other devices. The files are: 7 Block Candy's Decollation Warrior - God of War Criminal Hell Striker II - World Link 'Em Up (Mahjong).app Platinum Puzzle Bobble - Popo Bash (Chinese).app

Busbymod for Dingux

BubsyMOD-dingux May 25, 2010 8bitbubsy has released a new MOD player for DINGUX! Quote After working days on this, I feel it's time to release a test version for you guys. You might ask yourself- Why code this when he have GMU which already plays ProTracker modules? - Well, I do this for fun, and my player is even more ProTracker accurate (and supports the EF0-EFF effect). Also, it has got a cool pattern viewer! I know there are some bugs and small stupid things, but I'll fix them in a later revision. If some modules skips, overclock to 430Mhz! (Like in the start of face_another_day.mod) Or press X! X stops all drawing, thus saves a lot of cycles in my slow code. Why this happens? Well, my textout routine is very slow. NOTE: To load a module, you must pass the executable file an argument. With Gmenu2x edit your bubsymod shor

Shameless cross-promotion: Check out

If you’re into Slatedroids, Apads, or Ekens – cheap Chinese Android Tablets from Ebay or anywhere else that takes your fancy, like these: check out: What’s that term they use in H’wood again? “From the makers of Dingoo-scene”! Oh darn, you’re not gonna go now, are you?

At least 201 Dingoos out there …

Well done guys, but to be honest, that’s pretty piss weak! Remember, we’re trying to beat this device: As of March 31, 2010, the various models of the Nintendo DS had sold 128.89 million units , making it the best selling handheld game console to date, and second best selling video game console overall , behind the PlayStation 2 . We’re just 128,889,800 units away from beating the record, so keep clicking (but once only, please) ---->

ricsi posts unofficial A330 FAQ

completely unofficial A330 FAQ « on: May 24, 2010, 11:31:39 PM » As the A330 is selling now for some time, it is now time to move from rumour mill to here. I try to sum up what we know about the A330. The one and only review I could find is the one from omgmog: Strange that no further updates have popped up. If you know one ... post URL here. So let us start: * What are the changes between A320 and A330 The A330 is very similar to the A320, main changes are: - better LCD - new housing (PSPish, but much smaller) - 64 MB RAM (currently not used by hacked A320 Firmware, Dingux support for 64MB in the works) - better shoulderbuttons - proprietary wireless controller (analog sticks are mapped in HW to the dpad, and XYAB) *

Pandora ships

The title of the endgadget story here says it all: Pandora handheld now shipping: first mass-produced unit unboxed, world somehow survives By Sean Hollister posted May 23rd 2010 5:49AM The open-source Pandora handheld has had a long and arduous time to market, but the days of delay are apparently at an end. You gaze upon the very first Pandora off the assembly line -- the fruit of over two years labor -- and project leaders are presently shipping out the rest of the first completed batch, with scores if not hundreds already on the way. GP32X forum mod X68000 got this unit for his help in construction, which means you can see Pandora's box literally opened at our source link (har har). Puns not your thing? Spot a batch of handhelds at the soldering station instead, right after the break. [Thanks to everyone who sent this in] GP32X Forums , Craigix (Twitter) X68000, who received

Different CPU than the Dingoo – a Sunplus 8000, which can do this : Oh my, i almost started to am drooling all over the new Sunplus 8000 media chip that is soon to come out.

This site supports the film makers of the future

HeThrewUpEverywhere — May 13, 2010 — done for a school video production class, a monthly news show that broadcasts at school and on a public access channel (olympia news network). due to time constraints and the fact that its school-related, the humor (if any) is cheesy and the editing is kind of choppy. i could have done a lot more if i had more to work with, such as a longer time to edit and more length of the video (limit was 3-4 min). i was also catering to a pretty large audience, most of which are not familiar with videogame emulation, so i had to dumb it down a bit. regardless, i thought some people would enjoy this and it was fun making. Good job matey, and pretty entertaining. A- in my book!

Viewimage for Dingoo

Viewimage for Dingoo May 16, 2010 Stephanie has released a imageviewer for the dingoo Quote I was looking around for a simple little image viewer for Dingux, and didn't come up with anything so I found this Image Viewer / viewimage and ported it over. Not sure if I'm reinventing the wheel, there's probably other image viewers out there that I missed, but this was a quick little excercise for me. The download includes the binary, a readme, and an icon. All it does is display images, proportionately scaled to the Dingoo's screen. Just give it a filename or file names as command arguments, like "./viewimage.dge foo.jpg" or "./viewimage.dge foo.jpg bar.png" It also accepts wildcards, such as "./viewimage.dge /boot/local/pictures/*.jpg" Todos: * enable rotate (probably using L and R shoulder buttons) * get rotate working p

Rebel Dingoo makers get cocky; branch out into nutty territory

(There used to be a picture here that explained everything ... just google for a "Gingoo".) Shenzen, 13 May 2010: In a shocking twist to the “Fake A330” saga that has deflated Dingoo owners everywhere, a group of rebel Dingoo loving engineers have formed a Y new front in the battle for the hearts and minds (and genitals), of Dingoo fans everywhere. Just like the British Liberal Democrats, these engineers will now spend their every moment dedicated to protecting the conservatives, and covering up for members. Not to be deterred by the already confused state of the Dingoo manufacturing industry (73,491 companies, and the entire population of Shanghai, currently have rights to the name, all at the same time – but that was last Tuesday’s figure) these brave upholders of the Dingoo ideal simply headed on two letters down, thereby proving the penis mightier than the sword of litigation. “We toyed with ‘Dongoo’, but it was much safer going with the G”, Lead Rebel Engine

Can’t believe I missed this …

Fresh and hot from, uh, August 2009 , is this Geekdad review from of the Dingoo. The Geekdad column is never less than fun to read;  and here’s a sample to wet your appetite:, The a320 Handheld Emulator is a Pocketful of Gaming History , Aug 2009 Typically, I try and keep my shenanigans here at GeekDad to a minimum. I mind my Ps and, occasionally, even my Qs. When I review an item it’s typically something along the lines of a kid’s music CD or the occasional stroller, but today’s review is different. I am about to discuss a topic so taboo that readers’ spines may spontaneously contort and their hands twist to wretched claws upon the merest glance.
