I wanted to know what Pcercuei was doing with GCW0 and it seems like he's still actively working
on merging his patches to upstream. He has posted a bunch of patches in June 7 2017. (also in May 3, April 28 etc...)
http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1706.0/05684.html

His last commit in his own branch was in April 1 2017 so i think it fair to say that we're coming closer to have the GCW-Zero
upstream in the kernel.
When that will happen, they will also be able to make use of a newer and better Etnaviv, which is nice i guess.

Anyway, merging even a small patch to the linux kernel sounds extremely tricky,
how do we know if the patches were accepted upstream ? x_x

The complete list is here: https://patchwork.kernel.org/project/LKML/list/?submitter=13461

Thanks Paul for your hard work. I don't mind to wait, this is great what you do and I wish you success.
The scope of GCW is the past not the future of gaming so we can only improve what is already great. Hardware seems to be built good enough to serve years. that means software will come sooner or later, if there is enough demand...

Well if it helps, you can count me twice in regards to demand..  ;)

In all seriousness, it is heartening to see your continued progress and hard work pcercuei, it is much appreciated!

What the newz firmware will mean to noobs :
- Supertuxkart will run faster, 15 FPS versus 5 FPS.
- Fade to Black will have less framerate drops
- Mupen64Plus will run super smash bros n64 faster omg omg
- less graphical glitches, lugaru will finally run omg omg
- 60fps for cannonballs wow very impressed
- gltron will no longer be for blind people alone
-MKXP will no longer crash, rpg maker xp games yay
- Picolove will run with graphics this is pure sex

what will not change :
- nds emulation will still be sluggish, lel
- due to uclibc, QEMU will still not run due to linux-aio, FOOLS !
NO PEBBLE EMULATION FOR YOU !!!
- Virtualjaguar will still be sluggish :(

Nothing from all the above.

Again, we can't use the upstream etnaviv until we have a KMS video driver.

But we could use the DRM driver with Xorg. What's preventing that ?
But of course its probably best to be compatible with existing GCW0 software...

We have no KMS/DRM driver.

Also Xorg on a 320x240 screen? Seriously?  ;D

Well you chose poorly then. Really, the GCW shines as a portable. I haven't a clue why you'd solely make your choice to buy a GCW on the A/V out promises alone. There are a lot more options of getting emulated games onto your big screen these days...

USB OTG might happen when new firmware comes out in 2019 but TV out ?
No way man, no reverse engineered it

+1

I also want TV output to be able to put the console on a CRT TV.


..and USB OTG.


edi: No pierdo la esperanza de que salgan estas dos funciones que prometieron, algún año de estos. Aunque sea en 2020.  ;)
