I'm working on a new version of MAME4ALL for the A380.

I can't promise *when* it will happen, but it will happen.

Will update when I have some more news.

great.. thanks.. :)

Yes I am I'm working on a really obscure FAME M68000 compatibility bug... Fixed soon I hope.

Great. I can't wait for a good MAME port with cheat support. I need cheat support if I ever want to finish the arcade game Rygar.  ;D

I've fixed FAME M68000 now and it works with everything - multi core M68000 games and some of the finicky Atari games. Will be good for A380 MAME4ALL.

I haven't run anything yet on the A380. Been looking at it now - no telnet access? :-(
Just like Dingoo Native, only mounting drives, is that correct?
Why does the sound always keep reseting back to vol=20?
Also, is the CPU software clockable like the A320?

That's great. You might want to check the MAME4All source code forked by d_smagin. The sound is a lot better when using 44.1KHz with his fix.

Does the sound also reset to volume 20 if you change it in dmenu?

It's strange because that does work with the ZX-81 emulators.

Changing CPU clock frequency won't work so you should disable it for the Dingoo A-380.

I haven't tried dmenu yet.

There is no code to change the CPU?
What does the following description relate to in the firmware changes:

Added a new menu item "3D Games" with CPU clocked at 432MHz.

What is the normal clock of the A380? I thought it could run at ~500Mhz?

I was looking forward to some fullspeed Outrun :-)

The CPU only clocks down at 216MHz so I believe it will only change the clock if we overclock it with 216MHz. I think that it always runs at 432MHz no matter if you change it to 333MHz.

That's just my thoughts maybe the answer is in the kernel source code. :D

~500MHz is fake, get used to chinese market. :D
Normal working frequency is 366MHz, maximum stable overclock is 432MHz.
It's a normal practice not to tweak cpu frequency from each application and let dmenu do it.

even with the now fixed sound,

LOTS of games on the romset run slow and with music broken (teenage mutant ninja turtles,terra cresta,
xevious, and hundreds more...)

cpu specs are no excuse if you look at the excellent Fba the A380 has  :o

It starts to look as if Slaanesh won't release anything. Maybe he should just refund every donation and pay for his console or ship it back to retrodd.  :(

Sorry for the long delay guys, I have compiled a version of MAME4ALL for the A380 but just working out the location of where everything goes.

Worked a few things out, got an initial executable running and a new 400x240 splash screen and then menu screen comes up on the screen. So far, so good. But it doesn't do much else yet.

Thanks for your patience.

Oh! Dunno if this is obvious or not but does anyone have source code to SDL for A380 or is using the same as A320?

It's the same as on a320. Booboo's rootfs was reused with no changes. Hardware surfaces work, but double buffering - not (however it's the fault of fb driver, not SDL).
