Handy320 - Atari Lynx emulator for OpenDingux
« on: August 21, 2012, 06:31:02 pm »
Hi, everybody.

--------------------------------------------
Handy320 v0.1 for Dingux and OpenDingux
--------------------------------------------

Based on:
Handy/SDL 0.5 (c) 2004 SDLemu team
Handy 0.95 (c) 2004 K. Wilkins
Gui browser is mostly copy-pasted from gpSP by Exophaze
icon is from coccijoe's HandyOD

What's new compared to Handy/SDL 0.5
- Simple gui with rom browser is added
- Load/save states are working
- Two image scalers: simple2x and fullscreen
- Better synchronizing and better sound quality

PACKAGE
There are 2 binaries in the archive,
handy320-od.dge - for OpenDingux (Dingoo A320)
handy320.dge - for legacy Dingux (Dingoo A380/320e, Ritmix rzx50)

INSTALL
Copy either handy320.dge or handy320-od.dge to some dir on your sd-card or inner flash-memory.
Find real lynxboot.img somewhere in the internet (Google is your friend) and put it in the same directory.
Don't forget to overclock to 420 MHz if you want more speed in heavy games like Batman Returns or Crystal Caves II.

COMPATIBILITY
Handy320 supports Dingoo a320, a380 and Ritmix rzx50. Three fullscreen modes could be used:
320x240, 400x240 and 480x272 They are detected automatically, you don't have to worry about them.

ROMS
Roms should be either *.lnx or *.zip. Yes, zipped roms are supported.

BUTTONS
DINGOO D-PAD - Atari Lynx D-PAD
DINGOO A - Atari Lynx A
DINGOO B - Atari Lynx B
DINGOO X - Atari Lynx OPT2
DINGOO Y - Atari Lynx OPT1
DINGOO START - Atari Lynx PAUSE
DINGOO SELECT - exit
DINGOO L - open GUI
DINGOO R - toggle image scalers (simple2x / fullscreen)
NOTE: on Dingoo A380 shifts and X/Y are swapped, it's a firmware bug.

It works great, thanks!

I found a bug, it doesn't save the configuration. I changed all the settings and after a restart they're again as the defaults (upscaler: fullscreen, show fps: no, limit fps: yes, swap A/B: no). I have the .dge on the microSD card and the games unzipped in the Nand memory. I use OpenDingux (latest official release).

Also, the exit button (SELECT) seems kind of a bad option to me. I pressed it by mistake and I lost all I got. The "slow" way is really simple (L, Up, A) and it gives you time to save your state. Can it be disabled?

Well, it's not a bug, it's a missing feature. :) Handy320 doesn't save config, as I thought this not so important. I'll fix it next time.

Hey, this emu works in Dingoo A320 with legacy Dingux? I cant run this, when prees the B button in the icon of the emu, the console return to gmenu2x and the freeze...  :-\ Tested with the linxboot.img and roms in lnx and zip format.

Great Job with this emu!  Lynx has some awesome games!!  :) 

I tested several games, all except Ninja Gaiden run at good speeds.  Since Ninja Gaiden ran bit slow, i tested at 408mhz, runs good but after a while Dingoo reboots itself.  The game is still doing 60fps so it might already be running at full speed, im not sure?  Ive got a DT-a330 dont know if that helps

EDIT: Tested at 384mhz runs better and hasnt reboot itself!!  In fact all games run great at this speed!
