Gnuboy does not work in Dingoo A330!
« on: January 08, 2011, 12:39:13 am »
Hi. I have downloaded Gnuboy for the native OS and copied it to my Dingoo A330. But when I select a .gb or .gbc ROM in the "Interesting Game" menu, it doesn't even launch the emulator, it just freezes and I have to press RESET. I tried both versions, the normal one and the "no paw" version. Neither works. What's going on? Plz help...

Have you tried OhBoy?

No, I haven't. Can you please tell me where I can download it?

No, you are welcome to build it as a .SIM if you like. I did add support for that but I never use it. I prefer .APP.

[edit clarification on .sim support]

Actually, I thought that ALL native Dingoo emulators should necessarily be .SIM files.

Edit: I copied the ohboy_dingoo.app to the Dingoo and it didn't work.

OhBoy works differently, you launch it as a 3D Game. And then you browse for roms inside its menu.

The reason GnuBoy doesn't work is because the versions on openhandhelds needs to be HK patched.

But I have downloaded some other emulators from openhandhelds and they work fine, I didn't have to patch them. The only one that doesn't work is GnuBoy.

Edit: Now I realize you're talking about GnuBoy versions, not the other emulators.

Well now I've installed OhBoy and it works fine, it's really fast, games always run at 59/60 fps! Great emulator. Thank you, guys!
