Does anybody know if the current FBa available for GCW emulate CPS3 system? Would be nice a video of that (in case that emulate it of course).

Hey! Has anybody tried the HDMI out on this thing? Would love to see a video to see what the quality's like on a TV.

Also, would two of these link together for multiplayer? Not overly important, tbh.

Basically, I'm looking for a portable/home console that will play a massive range of retro games with a retro-appropriate screen resolution, with smooth emulation that has nothing to do with Blaze (so Neo Geo X is out). This looks as though it might do the trick. I've considered everdrive but it's like ?80 per console!

PS: I already have a Dingoo 320 but its OS's 16 bit emulation is not that great and I haven't seen a way to get AV out on dingux. So I'm hoping GCW zero is the console for me.  :)

HDMI is still being worked on.

And you obviously haven't tried OpenDingux. Which has proper TV-out.

@qbertaddict - Thanks for all the great videos!  I just had a thought about how you could improve them though:

How about building a little rig to hold the Zero and camera together so the screen is completely stationary, rather than constantly moving due to you pressing the controls, and also zoomed in a bit more so the screen takes up the entire frame?  In the absence of HDMI out, this would give the best possible representation of the gameplay.

That reminds me of the wee robots in Red Dwarf.

I cannot do that because of my tourettes. If I have it on a stationary platform I twitch and it falls over. It doesn't move because of me moving the controls it moves because I have ticks. I'm sorry but there is nothing I can do about it. You'd be surprised at how hard it is for me to keep the verbal ticks out of the videos. I am doing the best I can and until there is tv out that is the best I can do. Sorry.

Just wanted to say that I never noticed any shaking from your videos and never thought of them to be unwatchable in any way... And I watch them for a looong time. That means that you are doing a great job, qubert :)

You know how you said Androids can't do analog, what's your opinion on this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gggvz9lzLb8&feature=youtu.be

Nice review. I'm glad you let them know that the bezels are being fixed. People would have freaked out! Now start doing some gaming. You need to come and play some multiplayer quake and duke with us.

@ Q

Thanks Q! As I've said before, I learned that hard way that what you do isn't easy, so getting a thumbs up from you is something I'll put on my resume! Let me get through the holiday tomorrow and I'll be playing Duke and Quake with you guys!  ;D

@ NoeL

If that is in fact the Android answer to the true Analog problem then I congratulate them for cracking that nut. I'd also like to congratulate them for creating a solution that has the unwieldy finesse of a Sasquatch with a prosthetic leg!!! Look at that thing, It's hideous!!!

I watched the video and some things made me cringe right away:
- @ 1:10 he has trouble centering the nub overlay and never gets it right
- @ 2:53 he has trouble getting Mario to run in a straight line (probably because the nub overlay was not centered)
- @ 3:05 he has a noticeable lag in his control inputs and what you see on the screen

I stand by my statements in the video "quality means a lot to me and I'm sure there's others like me" the solution in that video is the complete opposite of quality. I'd never buy a car if the dealer told me "this is a great car, the suspension and steering is spot-on! It competes with the best... er... so long as you realign the steering wheel each time before you drive, if you don't get it just right, the handling turns to crap, you veer off the road and die. But cha see, that's the beauty of it, it takes skill, it's a real driver's car!"

Still, they're managing to read analog input on an Android device, which I didn't think was even possible before seeing that. What he's done here isn't the most elegant solution, but it's a start and definitely answers the question of whether or not these devices have analog controls. I'm not interested in Androids after the disappointment of my Yinlips, but for others this may be a big selling point.

Anyway, wrong forum for this XD

I always trust this as my best source of information: http://dingoo-scene.blogspot.com/2012/06/working-analog-stick-in-chinese-android.html#comment-form

I'm impressed and intrigued with how they were able to pull off what they have so far, even though it's not anything I'd ever want. From the article I linked to, I was always under the impression that the problem was twofold: 1) the emulators don't support true analog and 2) the current android firmware doesn't support it. So both would have to change before a solution could be found. I thought the boot-up in that video looked suspicious, maybe he's operating outside of the Android system sort of like the Xperia Play's analog controls?

Oh well, as you stated, wrong thread for this discussion.

Thanks for the video, Pardue.

What exactly is the issue with the shoulder buttons? In your video, I couldn't tell.
