Hello everyone. Great community,  a big thankyou to all contributors.

I was just watching LBLGamers video on the arcade mini port and saw it had quake! Does anyone know a version i can download for pap kiiiplus or could anyone upload the one included in that firmware. I dont really want to download 1.8Gb just to get quake.

Thanks for reading.

Hey, joined to say that the custom dmenu is working great,but now the select+start option to get out of the game doesn't seem to be working. Is this a known issue or am I doing something wrong?

Hello and thank all those who invested all that time and effort in making this custom image/firmware version.

After flashing the sd, booting, making sure everything works (works great !!! many thanks !!!)
I followed the instructions for copying the pymenu to the apps folder, renamed the directory to 'PyMenu'
and modified the config/config.json, then when running run.sh the device freezes and I have to pull
the battery in order to reboot.

Is there any other modification that needs to be done for the pymenu to work on the pap k3 plus ???

Which image did you flash? The modified Arcade Mini image I posted? If yes, make sure you have a good sd card and the file system is error free before copying pymenu

Jack83, thanks for replying quickly

I used this image :

https://drive.google.com/file/d/11AAbW4VpWk4XUtX9XjpKtyGHxVjmJlYL/view

the one you mentioned is missing the volume control

I used a new PNY 16GB class 10 card, flashed it using Win32DiskImager,
put microsd in the device, everything worked great.

- Downloaded https://github.com/JackD83/PyMenu/archive/ALPHA2.zip, unzipped it
- renamed directory name PyMenu-ALPHA2 to PyMenu
- copied the whole directory under the /apps/ directory on the device
- edited the config/config.json in visual studio (good for Linux editing) and made the changes
  you suggested

  "RS97": false, 
  "screenHeight": 272,
  "screenWidth": 480

then ran run.sh and that freezes

I saw this video made by LBLGamer - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNyKPuJY2qY
who also encountered the exact same issue.

Any ideas what might be causing this ?

Ok, my fault. Please don't use the PyMenu ALPHA release. Its antient!

Always use the latest master from Github: https://github.com/JackD83/PyMenu/archive/master.zip
Im working on it from time to time, but it should always be the best option.

I deleted the alpha link from the other thread.

great, working, looks beautiful !!! many thanks Jack83,

I see the new files in the main directory under the config directory hold the correct paths
to all the emulators, very nice.

I'd like to help with porting emulators from the rs-97 to the pap k3 plus
can I pm you about that ?

I'm afraid I'm not the best to contact for the emulators. First step would be this thread: https://boards.dingoonity.org/ingenic-jz4760-devices/uselessrs97-internal-firmware-for-revision-2-1/

Contains toolchain and repos. There is also a Discord chat server: https://discord.gg/hvR5vK6

Thanks Jack83, I will take a look.

Wanted to first focus on mame4all and pico, saw you were mentioned in this thread about mame

https://boards.dingoonity.org/ingenic-jz4760-devices/mame-with-sdlfix/

user Seagal wrote :

compiling mame for kiii resolution and modyfing draw routines to use fullscreen/resolution.
kiii doesnt need sdlfix cause it doubles Y pixels and on kiii there is no need for that

I did a diff between the original mame4all tree and the port to rs-97, found the header files where
the width/height is set, but as for the rest have no idea,

Do you know which of the users in the thread above are still active and can help ?

I'll try the discord as well, thanks :-)

I saw it in the Level By Level Gaming K3 Opening tutorial video ???

https://youtu.be/88pv-igrtq0?list=PLeVMjrH60k674o6_rTeqNfGsCDjVf7RQ0&t=194

The Pink size from SD to keypads is very small  :'(

I wanna will try to blend 45 degrees the microSD connector (i suppose will be a Fail, not sure...)


Or maybe bending 180 degree the bus, to the left...  ::)

i'll try.
