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

Sorry for my ignorance, but does this version support zip files?

.SIM file should be in GAMES folder of internal memory, with all the other SIM files. If that message still apears, go to Music->Update Jukebox.
Sorry for my ignorance, but does this version support zip files?
Native OS checks the file extension of a file and uses the .SIM emulator for that extension. .zip is already used for CPS1, so no, you can't open a .zip with OhBoy just selecting it in "interesting games" menu. It may be possible to change .zip to something (just the extension) and make the .SIM for OhBoy the default emulator for that, but I don't know if a .SIM supports more than one file extension and it must be implemented, this won't work right now.

actually, .SIM emulators can be placed in any folder of the internal memory. just remember to "update jukebox" when you put a new emulator, and it should work ok.

Ohboy must not be placed in games folder. The ohboy folder must be placed in the root of the internal memory. Otherwise, it will freeze your dingoo when you try to save any settings, BMP borders will not load, and savegames/savestates will not work.

As the previous post said, zip files are used by CPS1 emulator. But you can load zip files from ohboy's internal menu.
Just remember to have at least one unzipped rom to launch the emulator.

I can try to add support for launching from zipped games (obviously with the extension renamed to something like gbz) for the next release, though.

EDIT:

Ok, it's done. Next release (20120119) will support launching zipped roms with extension changed to GBZ.
Both GB and GBC zipped games can be loaded with GBZ extension. Internal menu will also support this format.

Yes, but i'm afraid that you will have to wait until it is updated (don't want to upload multiple ohboy versions separately, because it would be a mess. It's better to update the file).

Since Openhandhelds is taking too much time to update the files, you can download Ohboy 20120119 from here:

Thank you very much!  IMO this is much better than Gnuboy for native.  Honestly, especially with using the power switch for the menu.  Because of the start-select menu, it wouldn't let me save on Link's Awakening without dying.

That can't be done.

I suppose yu know that Ohboy = Gnuboy+menu system

Normal button remappings are done by gnuboy "bind" command. When you change it in the menu, the menu executes a gnuboy command. Example: "bind ctrl +a" (ctrl is A button in dingoo, and +a is gameboy A button)

Unfortunately, there are no gnuboy commands for opening the menu (gnuboy has no menu) so there is no option to remap that.
