« on: March 03, 2012, 01:01:02 am »

CPS2 - Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo


Extract ssf2.zip and ssf2t.zip to the same folder. Delete ssf.01, ssfe.03, ssfe.04, ssfe.05, ssfe.06 and ssfe.07. Make a new zip file and name it Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo.

I think that this is how it should be done to make the game load as Street Fighter 2 Turbo.



@zipaway

To make CPS1 game Lost Worlds you've got to replace the files not merge.

It's possible to run CPS2 Mighty! Pang on the Dingoo A380.

NEO-GEO games Fatal Fury 1, Fatal Fury 2, Legend of Success Joe, Metal Slug X and The King Of Fighters 1999 are also working on my Dingoo A380. All NEO-GEO ROMs are converted to FBA.

Okay, Im ganna do some extensive testing on the neo geo and then get back to you.

Oh by the way, how come .zip files don't work as well as the .fba on the a380, only a small percentage of Neo Geo games in .zip work

I like the games in .zip better because they take up less space

I know that Mickey Mouse Castle of Illusion doesn't work for the game gear.  The SMS version which works is almost identical but I mainly play my Game Gear and I cannot find any other ROMs that I didn't try yet?

Can anyone post a working ROM for the game gear version or point me in the right direction?

Ya I can't get Mickey Mouse - Castle of Illusion to work either. The graphics are all glitched, well i guess it added to the list.

Try the SEGA Mega Drive version. I could find a Mickey Mouse - Castle of Illusion USA/EU version that works. All I had to do is rename it from .md to .smd.

I know you added neogeo .zip support to the firmware but I can't get it to work  ???

How do you get .zip neo geo games to work on the a380?

I placed neogeo.zip ( the one from the convertor )  and my roms into the a380 neogeo folder but I still can't get them to run in .zip ( i want .zip to save space )

Oh and those games you listed that you said actually worked in .fba, I cant get those to work either ( fatal fury 1, king of fighters 99 ect... ) Did you use the same fba convertor as i did? The one provided by dingoo tech?

I have that version but I was one of those weirdos in the 90s that chose to get a Game Gear instead of a Mega Drive when I was offered one or the other.  I'll use the SMS version, it's pretty much identical to the GG version, which is quite different from the MD version

I'm using this one http://dl.openhandhelds.org/cgi-bin/dingoo.cgi?0,0,0,0,115 with the neogeo.zip from Dingoo HK.


If a game doesn't work as a zip there isn't anything you can do about it. I convert them all to fba because I got plenty of space on my Dingoo A380. There's enough space on a single 32GB MicroSD to store every game from every emulator.  ;D


Baseball Stars Professional, Magician Lord, Metal Slug 5, Metal Slug 6 (Metal Slug 3 Bootleg), Samurai Shodown 3, The King Of Fighters 2000, The King Of Fighters 2001 and The King Of Fighters 2002 can be added to the working list. All these games are converted to fba from MAME zips.

Rename your *.gg to *.sms and try to run it as a SEGA Master System game. It should work with Mickey Mouse - Castle Of Illusion.  ;)

My A380 is in and I'll be picking it up tomorrow.  I'd love to know how to get these emus to work.  Atari 2600 and Colecovision are my fav emulators :).

There's an Atari 2600 recompiled by Pottzman for the Dingoo A380. The download link doesn't work anymore but if you like it I can share it with you. It isn't the best emulator for the Dingoo  because changing the emulator options makes it crash but it runs most of the Atari games with the emulator defaults.

That would be great :).  I'm grabbing some 32gb micros today, and modding it tonight.  I'll report back once it's all done and ready for media :D

I got a 320 two years ago, and it's been faithful for a long time, but I need more storage space than the 320 can support (not to mention the R shoulder button stopped working, and my headphone jack is pooched).  I bought a Gemei A330 as a replacement, but found that the screen was soft and terrible.  The headphone jack is on the bottom too, which makes it very inconvenient to use as a pocketable MP3 player.  I then grabbed a Caanoo, which has been great, but again, the headphone jack is poorly located, and it's far to cumbersome to use as an MP3 player.  The A380 seemed like a logical choice to me, since it already plays all the emus I like and is the same form factor as the 320 (give or take ;) ).

I did the Dingux dual boot on my 320, but quickly found that I was only using the native OS anyway, so I reflashed it back to 'stock' and wore it out :).

Quick Q before I split from work.  Is there ANY way to get the emulators to run in 320x280 vs. 400x280?  I can't STAND the stretch, bleck.  I don't care if I have to set it every time I turn it on.  I have no linux or development experience, but I'm really good at poking around at stuff until it works ;).  I've already started playing with WinImage (free for 10 days), and poking around the 20020.img file, to see what's up.  I've done some .ini and .cfg editing in the past, on various things, and just wondering if there's something I could look for to alter the aspect ratio.

The Gameboy game Mario & Yoshi doesn't work on the Dingoo A380. I think this is more an issue with the ROM. It loads fine but you can't start the game.
