Hey Coccijoe, can you upload your .cfg scripts so I can get a look at how it's supposed to be done? I'm a bit confused there, keeps exiting back to gmenu and i'm sure it's something simple I'm missing.

Question, there are 2 versions of Planescape, a 2 cd version and a 4 cd one. Does it matter which one is used?

Framegrabber is a device that allows your PC to get video (sometimes also audio) from external devices (usually analog ones). In other words such computer extension card would allow to record dingoo A/V output on your PC. There are plenty of USB and PCI framegrabber cards on the market, but some of them do not work as real framegrabber should. The bad ones only allow you to record anything via included software and do not come with drivers which would allow you to use the device in any other way.

No, it still won't work for me. But I own the 2 cd version which is where I think my problem is. The 2 cd version evidently has some pre-installed patches that the 4 cd version does not. Maybe it's not compatable, I'll have to purchase the older 4 cd version if I can find one.

LOL, I know what framegraber is, thanks anyway. I just thought it is some app for Dingoo I missed...

VNC, great! I hope it will work with some live version too (hint: Mint). Thank you.
Btw, What do you think, would it be possible to connect usb keyboard, through some interface equipped with eprom acting e.g. fake VNC client? It is noobish question, but as I get it, it is the only way to connect external keyboard because of passive usb host.
It will drain your Dingoo battery probably, but there are mini portable keyboards too... Anybody?

Played  BG1 a little bit. a few initial thoughts

1st
It's really amazing playing Baldurs Gate on the Dingoo. Thanks again for this port SiEncE :)

2nd
Binding hotkeys/buttons  would of course make it a lot more playable on the Dingoo. Too bad its hard to implement but it would really help.

3rd
In the text window, whenever there s a new message it scrolls to the bottom so you have to scroll up again to view the entire message. The worst part when you scroll down again to choose your response its impossible to select the last option since the mouse cursor doesnt align and highlight the responses properly. You have to put the cursor a bit below the response to highlight it thus you cant select the last response at the bottom.

4th
The game always hangs when I quit the game. This happens in BG2 IIRC

5th Remember to use swap. The game runs better and loads new locations much much faster :)

@mrkingoo: Thanks for your thoughts.


Good suggestions!

I'm going to release it this weekend. I already suggested the Gemrb team to change the message window behaviour and they putted it to their todo.

Binding are also on todo.

Thanks for continuing testing gemrb.

Played BG1 a little more -> a few tips and observations

1. Sometimes loading times can be VERY long like when you're leaving Candlekeep in the beginning. It seems as the game hangs but be patient :)

2. A workaround for the text issue I mentioned: You can unpause/pause the game to make the text scroll upward a bit. But you cant use the X-button you have to use the GUI pause button in the lower left corner of the screen

3. Savegames from a normal Windows BG1 install seems 100% compatible so if there's some area or situation that hangs or cause trouble on the Dingoo one should be able to just copy the save to the computer and play past that area.
