****Best handheld emulator console*****
« on: April 02, 2012, 11:05:08 pm »
hi, i just started learning about handheld console emulators, and I am wondering what is best for me. I don't want to be messing with code or linux or anything, i just want to be able to drag and drop roms and play them.

The most important emulators for me would be (in order): snes, gba, nes, gbc, gb, and maybe genesis and stuff like that

I have a few in mind, but i want to know what is best: dingoo a320, dingoo a380, gemei a330.

And i am interested in the yinlips ydpg consoles (87, 87, 92, 96, 97) (not android ones) because i hear they can play psx and n64, but i dont know how good they are, because there are no reviews

link for yinlips: http://www.willgoo.com/yinlips-handhelds-yinlips-game-handheld-c-65_71-page1.html?zenid=87bt5qtcqrc48rovr3e0me8c05

Thanks Alot :)

I'm a noob too but I've learnt a few things:

1. The Dingoo A380 is newer but nobody is making new emulators or apps for it so little or no community support other than Alien Grey making new firmware versions (much respect due).  The GBA emulator is hit and miss, GB and GBC run at double speed and there is no quick, easy or even possible fix to this.  The Genesis/SNES/NES emulators are all excellent out-of-the-box though, as is Master System/Game Gear

2. The Dingoo A320 sounds quite complicated to get working as you'd like it to but it is very well supported by the community and the forums are full of help

The Gamegadget is released this week from http://www.gamegadget.net but will only play bought ROM's from its in-house marketplace.  Yet to see, other than Genesis what it'll emulate but I think it's one to watch.  I'll have mine by Thursday so I'll post feedback.  It's out of the box ready, built in the UK so the support should be excellent.  It's good to see some place where you can legalize the downloading of ROMs.  I'm square in that fashion!

Other consoles, I'd have to leave that to the community

thank you, so you think the a320 is a better choice than the a380?

I think so yes, but the A320 isn't out of the box friendly, you'll need to do quite a bit to it to get it working the way it would in a perfect world

I hope I don't sound sarcastic, because it's not my intention at all, but rather out of genuine curiosity, what games are you playing on the Genesis and Snes emulators??  I find the Genesis to be slow, and the SNES to be unplayable at all because of its slowness.  The diagonals don't feel quite right on the Genesis either.  You aren't the first person I've heard say that the SNES and Genesis play fine, so maybe it's just the games that I'm playing. H.G.

for your needs, the dingoo a320 is definitely the best choice for compatibility, speed, development and variety. the 1 hour work needed to get it into a opendingux state is worth it.

Everything runs well, I've only come across a handful that don't work.  Working examples on the Megadrive are Gynoug, Robocop Vs Terminator, Strider, Mickey in Castle Of Illusion, Gods, and on the SNES mainly Mario, Metroid and Castevania.  Is your console maybe faulty or have you looked for other ROMs.  Sometimes the quality of the ROMs can affect the playback, as can the quality of your Micro SD card

I know that a lot of people talk about the quality of the Micro SD card affecting play, so that could be what's happening. I went out and got a brand new Kingston 8gb card, which in theory is a good one, but the fact is that I find the MD and SNES and Neo Geo to all run slow.  Could you tell me what kind of card you are using??? I don't mind going out and buying another one if it means full speed gaming!!! H.G.
