Please make this damn thing play games.
« on: March 05, 2014, 03:02:34 pm »
I got this Dingoo Digital A-320 about a couple of years ago from my brother for Christmas, and I've done very little with it because it hasn't worked well from the get-go and all of the "official" sites are a disaster. This is the first time I've picked it up since then and the first time I've found a site I can actually post on to ask for help.

Literally all I want this goddamn thing to do is play Pokemon Red/Blue, but it won't. I've tried multiple different ROM files for them that work perfectly on my PC emulator, GEST, but to no avail. Every time I select the roms from the "Interesting game" menu, the whole thing just freezes. No black screen, no white screen with stripes, no anything. Just freezes right there in the menu. In fact, the only game I've gotten this thing to run at all is Sonic Battle for the GBA.

None of my .gbc roms will run. I've tried getting it to run new emulators like dingoo gnuboy, and updated versions of the GBC emulator, but it all does the same thing and I'm never sure I'm installing them right because the instructions were written in crayon and can't really even be called instructions.

I'm sure this thing was intended for people more hack/tech savvy than I am, but all I want this little thing to do is play pokemon.

How do I make my Dingoo play pokemon?

Maybe you've got one of those problematic "unpawed" or HK models. There was a fix posted here, but the mirrors are down. Maybe you could get the python script in that thread to fix your emulator, or someone who has the fixed emulator will see this thread and post a new upload.

Since your GBA emulator seems to be working, you could also try Goomba Color

Holy shit, thank you. I downloaded the unpawed fix version and it works like a charm. Jesus Christ that's 3 hours of my life I'm never getting back, but at least I can play games. Thank you.
