Title: Gemei A330 Emulator Enhancements
Post by: yoshi41 on March 22, 2013, 08:34:26 am
If somebody would be willing and able to enhance/finish those GA330 emulators (SNES, SMS, GBC), I will donate a console to him/her.  :)

http://boards.dingoonity.org/gemei-a330/native-ports/msg65306/#msg65306

I would order it at DX (http://dx.com/p/gemei-a330-3-0-lcd-mp3-mp4-media-games-player-with-fm-tv-out-sd-white-4gb-47741) and ship it directly to you.

PS: Thanks Cex for what you have done so far.

That's a very generous offer Yoshi41. Although I have nothing to offer except my verbal support, I'll let it be known that the price of the GA330 has almost dropped enough for me to want one. If I knew that someone was actively developing for it though, I'd buy one today.  :)

Curiosity killed the cat  ;)

Ok, this looks like a good starting point.  :)

Sound is now better, framerate is still pretty low (Zelda < 20 FPS).

Do you think this can be enhanced to a decent level?

And can you have a look at SMSsdl. It runs too fast with FS=2 and too slow with FS=1.

If you only could fix SMSsdl, the GA330 is yours (or the money, whatever you prefer).

Just to let you all know, I keep my word...

dcervi has received his GA330 and he's already working on a enhanced version of SMSsdl.

He's a very humble guy and didn't accept the donation in the first place. But I convinced him, that he deserves it.

Thanks again David. :)

PS: I will also donate for the Dingoonity forum, to help Max to keep this site running. Even though he asked me to leave this place.  ;)

Yep, in fact Yoshi41 was a 'true gentlemen', and insisted on sending me the console, so I finally accepted.

I'm working on the three emulators originally ported by Cex (PocketSnes, GnuBoy and SmsSDL, and will release new versions soon.

Later I'll have a look at porting other emulators to our little console. Just keep in mind that my C programming skills are limited, and so is my available time to work on them. I'm learning a lot working on the emus, but my progress is slow.

David.

Lucky me, as you can see nestled in my collection between the Dingoo A330 and the Letcool N350JP, I got the last one Everbuying was selling for 39.41 USD (http://www.everbuying.com/product211523.html)! I'll be watching your progress with anticipation, thanks for your work dcervi, and thanks yoshi41 for encouraging him!

Very good price MightyJAK. It's still my favorite SMS/GG emulation handheld.  And it has a proper d-pad. :)



I'm actually wondering about this handheld from Funstock...

http://www.funstock.co.uk/dingoo-a330-le

(http://www.funstock.co.uk/image/cache/data/Consoles/Dingoo/Packshot-3-320x320.jpg)

It looks like the discontinued Dingoo A330 LE (http://dx.com/p/dingoo-a330le-portable-3-0-lcd-game-console-mp3-mp4-player-with-fm-tv-out-micro-sd-white-4gb-71127) or Dingoo A330 EX (http://dx.com/p/dingoo-a330ex-3-0-lcd-portable-game-console-multi-media-player-w-fm-tv-out-mini-sd-white-4gb-70741), which are actually Gemei A330 (http://dx.com/p/gemei-a330-3-0-lcd-mp3-mp4-media-games-player-with-fm-tv-out-sd-white-4gb-47741) clones.

But it supports much more emulators, like a Dingoo A320 (http://dx.com/p/dingoo-a-320-2-8-lcd-gba-ngo-snes-nes-sfc-cps1-2-emulator-game-console-4gb-built-in-mini-sd-20217).

If I had to guess, I would say that the seller has used the specs for the DTa330 (psp looking) console. Since it mentions back facing speakers, clear shoulder buttons and a 400mhz processor.
whether this is by accident or design is a matter of speculation.
