Afternoon all

Anyone got any idea how I'd be able to get this game to play on my Dingoo/Dingux?

Never played it, but as it was release on an arcade mashine, you can try to run it with mame4all

This game will not work on Mame4All, but it should run on FBA320 if you run it through the converter to create a cached version of the ROMs (.fba extension). Supposedly the performance isn't all that great though (haven't tried it myself, not a wrestling fan).

Thanks - tried it in the end on Mame4all but the dingoo didn't have enough RAM - I think it wanted 34mb, and doesn't the Dingoo only have 32mb?

QBert - What converter would that be? I've never heard of this process before - I couldn't get FBA320 to read my neogeo ROMs, so just now play on the Dingoo.

Any more info on this would be very helpful...

Here's the documentation for "FBACache", included with FBA320:

-----------------
7. FBA320 CACHE
----------------

Included is a FBA cache creation program called fbacache.exe.
This will NOT run on the A320 Dingoo - currently it runs as a command line Win32 program - either under a CMD prompt or a cygwin shell.
fbacache.exe can be used to generate the necessary cache files required to run the largest ROMS.

The easiest way of running fbacache.exe is to connect your Dingoo A320 to your computer using the original firmware's USB mode.
This will map the internal memory and SD card to drives. My SD card happens to be mapped to "l:" drive in the example below.

Here is an sample run converting kof94 under cygwin. Annotations are below:

(1).
   /home> cd /l/local/fba
   /l/local/fba> ./fbacache.exe
   FinalBurn Alpha Dingoo v1.0 [cache dump tools]

   /l/local/fba> ls -l ./roms/kof94.*
   -rw-r--r-- 1 anthony None 26813696 Aug 27 10:22 ./roms/kof94.fba
   -rw-r--r-- 1 anthony None 12771667 Aug 16 08:44 ./roms/kof94.zip


Annotations:

(1). Just typing the fbacache.exe without arguments will display the usage msg.
(2). Check that the desired game to convert is in the ./roms directory.
(3). Run the conversion. Note that you just specify the name of the ROM.
    The path name is automatically added by fbacache.exe.

    !!!NOTE!!!

    It is VITAL that each line beginning with "Loading <romname> ..." indicates
    that it has loaded successfully (OK).
    Anything other than (OK) is NOT good and the cache file will fail.
    The main reason for not saying (OK) is an absent or bad .zip file.
   
(4). Conversion takes a few seconds and you should be left with both the
    original .zip file and the newly created .fba cache file.

Probably my favorite arcade game of all-time, right up there with Double Dragon. Not only do I remember it, I have a ROM of it on my computer and play it from time to time. I also have a ROM of WWF Superstars as well, which is another great arcade game.

I always used either Earthquake or The Big Boss Man. Man, that game was awesome.
