Great news for Gemei owners. Slaanesh, any further updates on the long-awaited mame4all for other devices? (GP2X, GCWZero, Wiz, Dingoo  A320/A380 etc)

MAME4ALL for GP2X : Done
MAME4ALL for GCW0: Done
MAME4ALL for Wiz: Done
MAME4ALL for A320: Done
MAME4ALL for A380: Not (though should be easy enough to add)
MAME4ALL for Pandora: Done
MAME4ALL for Nanonote: Done
MAME4ALL for Gemei A330: In Progress

XMAME for GCW0: Done
XMAME for Pandora: Done
XMAME for Raspberry Pi: Done

I've done a mega-merge so MAME4ALL hosts now all use the same code base.
XMAME can build for GCW0, Pandora and even RPI, though only for mame 0.69 so far. still need to finish off mame 0.84. May drop mame 0.37b16 support as it doesn't offer that much any more.

MAME4ALL isn't just a copy of the last version from the GP2X, it's literally a complete re-write.
Every driver, sound and cpu has been updated in some way, some minor and most of them thoroughly.

If anyone wants to do some testing that would be great. I don't mean just test a game, I mean like go through and test loads of games, methodically if possible. The GCW0 or GP2X is probably a good candidate for this.

Let me know if anyone is interested. Also Don't respond here as this thread isn't really for this.

That's great news. Many thanks for your efforts Slaanesh. Will mame4all for the handhelds be released before Xmas?

Hopefully.

I've built the first MAME4ALL for Gemei but it's not working yet. I'll have to see whats going wrong.

I'm getting the following warning after linking:

Code: [Select]
[font=arial]arm-linux-ld.exe: warning: cannot find entry symbol init; defaulting to 13800000[/font][/font]

Does the MP4SDK need dingoo.o? or an init.o?

Seems to be commented out in the link.xn file.

Using a link.xn with dingoo.o included made no difference, the program doesn't look like it starts or if it is, isn't getting very far.

Must be missing something...

@slaanesh: maybe you can try to contact @cex for your Gemei MAME compiling issue, he made some important native ports for the A330 in the past so maybe he can solve your issue.

About the research for MAME testers: i am interested in XMAME and MAME4ALL Pandora versions, just tell me where i can download your MAME builds and i'll do some extensive tests.

Does the warning actually break MAME? Or is it just nice to not have?

Gemei may have specific configurations that need to be rewritten from their dingoo equivalents. A gemei.o for instance.

Okay things are looking better, have a running executable now.

Shouldn't be long to get MAME going now.

EDIT: First game has been run! It's Ghosts 'n Goblins but the colors were wrong - will of course investigate.
I am assuming the Gemei is RGB565.

Hello everyone,

I'm very excited to read that a new MAME4ALL version is about to be released (especially on Wiz, which I still use every day)!

slaanesh > What is the progress of this project? I'll donate for sure if this new version brings better performance and/or new cool feature(s) compared to last Franxis' 2.7 version. :)

a new MAME4ALL version


Can't wait to try this and the new X-Mame on my Pandora, hopefully the wait will be not that long.

Apparently Slaanesh has been updating mame for a number of systems for a long time but no release. He is only committed to the Gemei A330 now so a new mame for other old retro handhelds might still be a very long way or even never happen. Hope I'm wrong though.
