Mame4all for Dingoo A-380/A-320e

I finally managed to compile mame4all from Alekmaul for the Dingoo A-380/A-320e.  :)

maybe you can lower sound to 22 khz,

some games run too slow, even from 3d games directory

I think you can change the sound frequency for each game in the emulator. I don't know if this is going to make much difference.

Alekmaul is working on a new version to make it run faster.

I think that the trick is to find good settings. Try with frameskip 0.

Any update on the new version?  Or any tricks to make the sound better on this version, or have it run full-speed while TV-Out is enabled?   ;D

this emulator needs a lot of work, it's pretty worthless without a BIG upgrade

Hi everyone,

Alien Grey pointed me to this thread.

Looks like MAME4ALL needs some love for the A380.

I've been working on some speed improvements for MAME4ALL OpenDingux. The v1.0 for A320 OD was... pretty slow in most instances :(
Even some basic games seemed to be a lot slower than what you may expect.

I don't have an A380 console so it's hard for me to get anything working on it.

I would be happy to get a better version of MAME4ALL running on this console however I need an A380 console.
I can get an A380 posted to me for AUD$120. I'm willing to put in half of that if perhaps some other A380 users who want MAME4ALL want to put in the rest.

I'm also posting this message on the DOSBox thread and will get DOSBox also running.

I'm working on MAME4ALL for Dingoo A320 Native and OD.
A new version for each is coming. Both are considerable speed and compatibility improvements.

The Dingoo Native version is coming first.

By the way, apart from the wireless controller support, the A320e doesn't seem to be any different to the A380. Is that correct?
I don't really care about the wireless controller support so maybe an A320e will suffice.

No. It's different and it doesn't use the same Dingux version. I think that the kernel is different but I'm not sure. You can't use the Dingoo A-380 CFW. I also know that the original Dingoo A-380 emulators can't run on a Dingoo A-320e. I don't know if everything ported to the Dingoo A-380 actually works on a Dingoo A-320e.

Of course, there is a bug in the value of the frameskipping parameters, it's fixed in V1.1 that I will release soon.
Slaanesh, you did more improvment than this thing (and new 68000 core) ? If so, will also add them to my version, thanks to share ;).

How does it compare with built in Mame?
It's so and so at best, but way better than beta Mame4all

I've made quite a few improvements and some games are really flying now.
Some important changes include:

  • * Using hardware surface and double buffering option.
  • * Updated compiler options. This turned out very important as it allows profiling to be much more effective.
  • * Some other updates to some drivers and base MAME files to allow games to run faster and in some cases better compatibility.


A fair bit of work goes into profiling the code. ie. production of the .gcda files.

Can I update your github repository directly or do you want my entire code base?

Well, I think I'm using hardware double buffering, as explained in dingoo wiki.
About update, well it will be great if you can update directly github before releasing your version. Thanks for that.  :) Of course, I'm talking only about OD version, not the native software one, I have no repo about it.
github is ready with fame and the few V1.1 improvments. I think I still have some files on my DD that are not on it (like the new skin  ;)), will check.
If it's too hard to update it, just release the source code with your version, I will update my version on github with your updates.
