Now the emulator is in SIM format (instead of APP)

Thanx.

But I would assume that the SIM version will start automatically the selected ROM.
What I see is that ohboy starts, and I have to select the ROM from inside Ohboy a second time.
Is this intended behaviour?

Also power off as menu is quiet unusual, most apps use select+start

select+start doesnt work. I've already tried to map those keys and i had to reset the dingoo (couldnt access the menu).
It would also conflict with the gameboy's reset feature (select+start+b+a)

Don't know why it doesn't start automatically, don't know how the Dingoo launcher system works.
Anyway, you might want to know that you can load zipped roms from the ohboy menu (couldnt be possible without the menu, as ZIP files are automatically launched by the CPS1 emulator.

Anyway, it's still better than launching the explorer and browsing to launch an APP file.

Note: each time it is launched, SIM version will suppose that the folder of the rom which launched ohboy is the rom folder. It is intended behaviour, because some people have separate rom folders for GB and GBC roms. So when you launch it from GBC folder, the default rom folder will be GBC, and when you launch it from GB folder, the default rom folder will be GB. You can still browse to any folder, or launch it from a rom folder located in the SD card.

awesome sim, just a couple problems though.

When I go to apply and save my settings on the menu for ohboy, it freezes my dingoo and i have to reboot it.  Also it will not read my save files, and I transfered them from the ohboy app saves folder to the ohboy sim save folder.  Anything I can do to fix these problems?  For now i'm just going to have to use the app.

Did you install it in the correct folder, in the root of the internal memory? (A:/OHBOY/ohboy_dingoo.sim)
the savefiles must be in A:/OHBOY/saves/.  If not, ohboy will not "see" them.
Also, Ohboy will try to read/write the config files into A:/OHBOY/. If the folder does not exist, it would explain why it freezes your dingoo.

Check that you have installed ohboy in the internal memory, it must NOT be installed in the memory card.

Let me know if you manage to solve your problem.


By the way, next release will automatically load the selected rom, instead of forcing the menu.

little bug report..
1.in the menu there cant scroll loop..
2.volume setting cant be saved..

1- That feature is not yet implemented (i tried some time ago, but it caused graphic bugs in the menu)
2- That feature is not yet implemented (i'm having problems with this one, i can save it in the rc file but, for somewhat reason, it refuses to load)

Already submitted new version (20120117) to openhandhelds, it should be updated in a couple of days.

Don't know why it doesn't start automatically, don't know how the Dingoo launcher system works.

Do you plan a "proper" SIM version?
Eg. a version that really starts the selected ROM without the need to select it a second time?

I'm having some problems with this emulator. I unzipped to the root of the internal memory and deleted all other gameboy .SIM, but still, when I select a rom file, it says: "Simulator does not exit" (I think they meant exist, but you know these chinese devices).

What can I do ? Thanks
