Mame4All question
« on: November 05, 2009, 01:04:20 am »
Is it possible to exit out of a game when in mame4all?  I couldn't figure out how to do so.  The only way to do this is to reset the system.

Press both shoulder buttons and SELECT at the same time.

This is entirely my fault but I'm finding it extremely frustating that I don't know how to exit half the things I load up on Dingux and end up just hold a bunch of different buttons till something works!  ??? Unlike the native emulators where it's always start+select for menu/exit.

What software have you been loading that doesn't come with instructions in a TXT file?  I can't think of any software I've put on where I didn't have instructions.

True, but the point is rather valid: the current state of the community is rather decentralized, resulting in 'personal conventions' used when building applications.

It would be great if there would be a common controlscheme, or some more centralized conventions about 'best practices' for Dingoo/Dingux development.

Yes! I totally agree. Who can remember a hundreds of  buttonsettings? I always read the txt file. But I'm to old to remember them after playing the game  :-[

I posted a thread to discuss this aspect. Hopefully the scene will pick it up and create something organic. :)

Maybe its possible to programm a daemon who waits for a defined keystroke to close the last started app?
This would be an easy way to exit all different apps with one keystroke.

Sounds cool, provided it doesn't use much resources, and it kills the last started app gracefully with a sync command; we wouldn't want more SD card corruption... :)

Probably a long shot, but it'd be nice if the volume control could be taken care of that way as well, across applications.

That's the way uh huh huh, I like it.

PLUS KARMA!

Really not the point.

MINUS KARMA!
