Hello
I installes this FW on my PAP Gameta II and it works great
SO I am very happy with this dmenu you created.
Now i am using my PAP gameta again
The FM radio not working is no problem.
I hope there will be a DEV who can get MAME working and give the MSX emulator A higher resolution.
Thanks for al your hard work
Greetings Herman ;D ;D ;D ;D

I'm glad you like it. I had no luck with MAME, but FBA is working. I just tried my hand at making MSX go full screen, but it didn't work. So no luck there either :)

I missed this when I read your post the first time, but does my menu actually work on the PAP Gameta II? I didn't realize that the devices were similar enough...wonder if that means it would work on the PAP-KIII (non plus) or the PAP-KIII S?

Hello Nick,
I would like to get Doom in your DMENU.
Witch steps are required to get this running?
The Doom I have from dingoonity is A app file.
I hope you can help me

I tried to get PrBoom and Chocolate Doom going, but had no luck with either. In fact, the only stand-alone game I could get working is Quake II.

My best advice is to try and find a PlayStation ROM of DOOM and play it that way.

If you can link me to the files you have, I can try and incorporate them in a later version.

Hello Nick,
I have installed A Playstation version of doom and this is running at full speed.
What do you mean by linking to the files?

Glad you got it working. I think Playstation is the way to go.

What I meant was that I could try integrating the DOOM app file you have if you link me a copy. It probably won't work, but it may be a different version than the ones I tried already, so there's a chance.

Work will be busy for the next week or so, but I'll try this one out when I get a chance. Thanks, Herman!

I'm pretty sure I had Metal Gear Solid working at one point. Try adjusting the frame skip to 1 or 2 and turning off the frame limiter in the PCSX4ALL settings. If that doesn't do, maybe you need a different ROM. I'm having good luck with pbp format.

You also might need to add a BIOS file in, since I am not legally allowed to include one in the menu. The correct md5 checksum for the BIOS is "b9d9a0286c33dc6b7237bb13cd46fdee" You can verify the md5 using the program md5checker, which you can download here: http://getmd5checker.com/ The file needs to be called scph1001.bin, but the only one that I had that matched the md5 checksum was called--I think---scph7502.bin, so I just renamed it to scph1001.bin. Then you need to copy the file to your sdcard, and go into the PCSX4ALL settings and change them to use the new BIOS. PlayStation games will then work a little bit faster and smoother.

Hello  Nick,

Thanks for your answer.
I wil try to get this bios file.
But I have found another strage thing.
In the Vectrex emulator when I try to open a file the list remains blank.
And I have put some roms in de H:\emulator\vectrex\roms and H:\ROMS\vectrex
The screen turns blue and the logo of the vectrex sits in the bottom right corner.
If this is not the case in yours, I think the gameta and the k3 are not fulle compatible
Greetings Herman

Thanks for the update. I have not been able to get ahold of any Vectrex roms to try it yet. When I do, I will let you know if mine behaves the same as yours.

I did a little quick research here on the forum, and it seems like the roms should be in .vecx format, and that you can simply change the file extension from .bin to .vecx if your roms are in .bin format.

Also, the Vectrex roms were apparently released into the public domain for non-commercial use in the 90s. So, I think it should be fine for us to share them on the forum here, or even for me to include them with my free menu once I acquire them.

Hello Nick,

No files are visible.
And If your PAP KIII works good I think I wil try to get one myself.
Thanks for your hard work.
Greetings Herman 8)
P.S. al the roms are PD and here you can find the roms;

I can confirm that I am having the same problem with the Vectrex ROMs you provided--they do not show up in the list. I'll look into it more and let you know if I find a solution. The good news is that your Gameta II is working fine :)
