I want to buy Ben NanoNote but.. I'm afraid of.
I read Beez review: "Pure fun, but not for the faint hearted"
, and it sounds like a hell for "ordinary" user.
It is pocket size and got keyboard: it could be fun for retro comp programming.
I find out this post "NanoNote now fully compatible with Dingoo A320 games"
I'm interested at some 8/16-bit/etc emulators, mainly:
C64, Atari 2600, Atari XL, Amiga 500, Atari ST, GB/GBA, DOS. SCUMMvm will be nice because of AGI interpreter.
I would like to program/hack at abandoned platforms,
I'm especially interested at C64 Basic programming, AGI (which is multiplatform), and batari Basic
However it is lack of proper C64 emulator* at Dingoo, and for NN things are even worse.3D Construction Kit
is great, and it exist for many 8/16 bit platforms & DOS, but it is slow at original speed; emulated could be hell.
I'm interested at LÖVE
too, it is ported to Dingoo (nlove
) but not know how much is it good... especially for NanoNote.
e.g. mouse driver and so on. (btw I don't have a clue about LUA but it sounds challenging)
I recently bought A330 to my nephew as a Christmas gift and I was amazed how cool this thing is.
Only one thing is missing: keyboard.
So, there is my question: how much is possible to get those emus works @ BEN NN for us "mortals", non-hackers?
In addendum, how much of those Dingux stuff is repacked/ported to NanoNote? What should I expect in the future?
I managed to run Dingux at A330 (but it was pain in the ass - because of SD card problem); I know basic Linux stuff, but, I'm not impressed
with bash/prompt scripting at mini screen/mini keyboard... so I vote for nice, clear GUI.
Also I'm interested at remaining compatibility with Dingoo platform, so my choice is GMenu2X for now.
Any suggestion is welcome!
* There is Frodo and Vice port for Dingux; basically, it should work almost the same at NN. However,
hardware power is not questionable, but some emus are not compatible as they should be.
E.G.: there is Stella Atari 2600 emulator for Dingux
"Pitfall II works but you will need to overclock to 420Mhz and it's still slow"
OMFG, You can run Descent 2/Quake, but not Atari2600.
