Problem with some of the emulators
« on: September 23, 2010, 02:59:47 pm »
Note:  The following is from another site, but I didn't feel like typing it all again so just ignore the nagging.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Is this site dead or is everybody incompetent?

When I hold B before resetting it, it does nothing at all when I plug it in, but if I hold B before plugging it in, the computer recognizes something has been plugged in, and the steps come in.  All goes as planned until step 6, where clicking Next writes:

"Windows was unable to install your JZ4740 USB Boot Device

Windows could not find driver software for your device.

If you know the manufacturer of your device, you can visit its website and check the support section for driver software."

It works when I directly plugs it in without holding anything, though.  The USB logo shows itself & I can do whatever I want with it.

So here I am, in the support section, trying to find driver software FOR the driver software.  Alas, it's been more than a week and nobody's even replied to my thread.

I shouldn't've upgraded my Dingoo's software, it worked perfectly when I had 1.00 but it became Hell when I went to 1.22 or whatever version it is now so I decided to downgrade to something that works.  Well, I tried 1.01 & 1.02 because I couldn't find 1.00 on the site, but they were as shitty as 1.22, so I'm trying to install the "Current TeamDingoo firmware version", thinking it'll work.  I mean, it wouldn't be the official version if it didn't work like all the others, right?

Also, I tried upgrading it the same way as every other, which is holding down before turing it on, but there's no firmware upgrade window appearing, and it's stuck at 1.01.

I also tried using the flashutil, but it just installs the driver & burns into void.  Doesn't do a difference whether my Dingoo's plugged in or not, whether it's in USB mode or not.

So guys, could you write a tutorial that's actually right, make a firmware that's actually better than 1.00 or even better, just UPLOAD the damn 1.00 so I can go back to the near-perfection it was?  Hell, since I've upgraded it, none of my GBA or GBC games will work, and 80% of my SNES games are either slow, won't boot or have sound issues.  When it was 1.00, 80% of the SNES games worked perfectly, while the others just had minor sound or slowness issues that could be fixed with frameskip.  As for the GBC games, I could just change their extensions to .GBA and they'd work, except with yellow screens instead of white ones (which just gave it a more nostalgic look).  No matter the firmware version, the NES games work perfectly, and the Genesis/Megadrive games work perfectly as long as they're .smd, but you can just convert .bin & .gen games to .smd using a simple file converter and they'll work perfectly except for a few rare sound issues.  I don't like NeoGeo games because I don't like fighting games, and I have no clue what a CPS1/2 is, so I didn't bother with it.  As for the music, the sorting system could be fixed easily by adding an alphabetical sorting system that works correctly.  And for the videos, forget it because it's like watching a direct stream movie with an old kbps modem, for some reason.  The radio just doesn't work, but I don't really care.

So once again, could I have help within the year, PLEASE?

Geez, this post was actually a complaint AND a review.

I changed the name of the file from A320-1.03TD-3 to a320 like every other firmware's name is, and the firmware upgrade worked the way every other did.  Thing is, it's just as shitty as every other.

Can you guys just upload 1.00?  It's the only firmware that works.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Basically, all I want is someone to upload 1.00 because it's the only damn firmware that works.  All others are shit, none of my GBA games will work, the new GBC emulators work like shit and 80% of my SNES games won't work, the remaining 20% working like shit.

Wow, that was fast.  On the other site, it took a whole week just for someone to tell me to post here xD

What kind of dingoo do you have? If you don't understand the question, look here:
http://boards.dingoonity.org/dingoo-hardware-general/pawed-and-unpawed-dingoos-trying-to-clear-up-the-confusion!/

And that realy doesn't work? Worked great for me exactly as it is written there:

On the other site

i'm betting it was gbatemp, if not the archaic dingoo-digital support site, or whatever it is, where people hung out before even a320freeforums existed

I don't see any paw or HK on my Dingoo.  And following your advice, I've upgraded the firmware from 1.20pof to 1.22, and I see no improvement.  Heck, it's the same thing as 1.01.  Same fonts, same Engrish, same boot-crashes.

Are you sure it's 1.22 & not 1.01 under another name?  There's even the original logo.

It was the Dingoo-Digital support site, yes.

I don't have any camera, but the About screen looks like this:

Model:A320

Local Disk Free

Also, what do you mean by hidden menu?

In the Native Dingoo firmware, go to System Setup -> About and press up, right, down, up, right, down.

Okay, it'd be easier with a camera.

Glad you got my reply at the other site - that place is for the lost and lonely. Go there just to see if anyone still uses it.

You may need to reload your emulators (backup all the files on the Dingoo - you should do that anyway) onto your hard drive or do a complete clean re-install.

Thanks for telling me to come here.  Also, I've already tried re-installing the native emulators and it doesn't make it better.

The only solution I can think of is uploading 1.00.  Surely it isn't that complicated?

if anyone had a copy of it that is

there are issues downgrading using .hxf files, there's a ool comewhere that can patch them so it thinks it's upgrading, or just use the reflasher (depending on your os, xp definately works, anything above is dodgy at best, and anything 64 bit just give up with anything related to the reflashing mode of the dingoo)

I have 64 bits.

Hello?  Does having 64 bits causes a problem?

yes, it's probably possible to get the proper drivers installed and reflash, but it'd be easier to just get a 32 bit xp machine
(or if you're flashing for the dual boot just use linux, as there's no need for drivers)

Huh?  The problem aren't the drivers and stuff, but the firmware.

right, so if you turn on the dingoo while holding b, to put into usb reflash mode, it then installs the correct drivers for you? last i checked there wasn't any working 64 bit windows drivers

but what do i know, i've only reflashed and messed around with my dingoo about 20 times
