So what is the jz4750.h from the A380 kernel source?

Banging the hardware gives maximum speed - yes - at the cost of some compatibility.

If you have generic code, it isn't going to run at maximum speed.

I like things to run as fast as they can - that's what I like doing - getting the most out of the hardware.

great  ;D

forget the "strong advices" ...

Do you have anything reasonable to recommend for mame4all? If no, please, create a separate thread and don't interfere into things you have a vague idea about. Thank you.

already recommending not following strong useless advices  ::)

It's already fixed. I've been playing a few games today, including "Space Dungeon". Now playing at full-speed with sound.
I'll try not take too long, I may release an early beta test this weekend as you A380 guys have been waiting for ages.

at last !

so happy to get a good mame !
3rd time is the charm

It must be very good this time.  :o

I can't wait to try it out on my Dingoo A-380. I think it's time to make a new CFW with better support for all our great external emulators.  :)

Zaxxon needs the samples file for sound. It will be included with the main release. I'll check into Venture.

Good work Slaanesh.

The sound is good and the performance improved a lot.  8)

Many games run full speed with this Beta MAME4All build and cheats work. Road Blaster works but runs slow. Outrun is also slow. Loading times are sometimes very long for certain games.

This Beta MAME4All build is much better than any other Dingoo A-380 build we had before. Thanks a lot.

zaxxon working ok with the added sound samples
venture works if you turn sound off,
marked as bad sound, though it plays fine on other mame versions

phoenix japan working ok

overall great , just needs a bit more speed ,specially on shooters/racers

Unless any of the beta testers have found some outstanding bug, I think we're ready for a release.

I think it's good enough for a release. No major bugs and most of the games seem to run just fine.

A new CFW should also be available soon to start MAME4All and most of the other emulators on the external MicroSD card from dmenu. It just needs a bit more testing to make sure everything is still working fine after adding so many new items to dmenu.

Toki is fixed.

There is not much else I can do speed wise short of being able to set the clock rate if the A380s CPU.

I'm trying to implement a 2nd faster Z80 CPU emulator but it's tricky. It would be useful as a faster CORE but isn't very compatible yet.

More speed would be great but isn't really necessary for a release if you plan to update MAME4All in the future. There's plenty of games that do work full speed with good sound that it doesn't make sense to wait any longer.  ;)

The Mame4All V1.0 from Slaanesh was supposed to be released in the weekend. I guess he still didin't get it ready to be released.
