How to install things on OD
« on: January 16, 2013, 03:00:35 am »
Hello. I just installed OD on my a320.
But I didnt install any packs... I want to install only a few things like some emulators and applications.
I dont know anything of programming...
I wish to know how and where (what folders) I cand install things on my device.
Thank you very much. If there is another topic that solves my question, please, show me. I couldn?t find it.

1 - Select section with L/R
2 - Press "Select" to show some options
3 - Chose "Add link in <section>"
4 - Select the executable (most of the times a .od or .dge file)

A new link should appear at the end of the section.

Most emulators don't have a file browser option. To enable the file browser of GMenu2x:
1 - Place the cursor over the new Icon you created
2 - Press Select and then "Edit link"
3 - Change "Selector browser" to "ON"
4 - Chose the directory where you put the games for that emulator in the opcion "Selector Directory".

Some applications need extra configuration to work (like certain files from original game or a BIOS), so read any README file or instruction.

You can put your files anywhere, it doesn't matter. If an application needs certain files in certain locations you'll probably get a readme file with the exectutable.

Thanks... I think it worked... or something like that, cause when i launch the emulator, it opens and exits...
Is that because I dont have any roms yet?

EDIT
Ok, I think I got the wrong files, cause psx4all and pico drive worked...
Thank you very much!

If you tell as what emulator opens and exits and where did you get it it's easier for us to help you.
Anyway, you can see what happened on the "Log viewer" in the last section of GMenu2X.
With that application you should be able to see what caused the crash, it logs the output of the app you launched.

Dont remember where i got the files, but I think that I get the wrong ones. I?m downloading some emulators and rechecking if they are od compatible... it?s working. I found a list, but the links are not working http://wiki.dingoonity.org/index.php?title=OpenDingux:Emulators , but at least I got the names, so I can download them correctly.
I?m already playing snes and megadrive...
:-)Thanks for the help.
