Re: Useless CFW for the Retrostone (1)

Actually using getenv() to read HOME environment variable isn't the problem. Nethack is also trying to create lock files in $CWD. Some kind of save backup scheme in case of nethack crashing, I think. I tried changing the save to /home/useless. It saves, but then when you restart the game, you disco...

Re: Useless CFW for the Retrostone (1)

Err, I looked at it again and I noticed there was an unused sdl.c file among the source files. I deleted dingoo.c from the Makefile and added sdl.c. I'm surprised to have missed that file lol... Nice The keys work but aren't exactly right: the top button (blue) is B, I think. Also the game tries (a...

Re: Useless CFW for the Retrostone (1)

Ok so i looked into it and its not using SDL but directly to the framebuffer (/dev/fb0) and using eudev.
I could convert it to use SDL but i think you are better off looking for a version that uses SDL instead, that would make it much easier for me to port.

Re: Useless CFW for the Retrostone (1)

So I just got my hands on a used retrostone and downloaded the buildroot and tried to compile dingux Nethack (320x240). Compiled without any problems, but the the image is half-sized, approx. 160x120? Is something scaling the image down by 1/2? Is there a quick fix? The buttons and d-pad work, you ...

Re: Games for 3do

It's something i plan for my CFW eventually. (though like my other cores, i'll have to base it off the libretro core again)

Re: Useless CFW for the Retrostone (1)

I took the time to update my CFW for the Retrostone. Here are the changes for version 0.32 : Switched to NTFS, should fix the issues on Windows. Updated Picodrive with faster 32X core with fixed default controls. Added Snes9XEmu fork based on libretro core. It supports SRAM, SRTC and save states... ...

Re: Useless CFW for the Retrostone (1)

https://gameblabla.nl/files/snes9x_retrostone.opk I have now ported Snes9x2005, the libretro core and adapted it for my CFW. SuperFX games are running smoothly on it and i might consider using Blargg's APU to fix some audio glitches in some games in the future. If you want to use it, simply add it ...

Re: Retrostone 2 is coming soon

My understanding is that hardware acceleration will be part of the new SOC, something that the old SOC was lacking because of proprietary blobs. So even if it's 'slower' than the original Retrostone, the new hardware will actually likely be faster for most things. Proper hardware acceleration will ...

Re: Useless CFW for the Retrostone (1)

Yo guys, just thought i would release a minor update to it. It updates a few emulators and adds a new game. ... Unfortunately, i have some bad news. I thought i could make it switch to the HDMI on the fly. But neither a10disp or another tool supports that. Attempting to do so leads to a missing kern...

Re: Useless CFW for the Retrostone (1)

Are there any BIOS files required for particular emulators? If so, where must they be stored? Same for the rom files. Any specific location to store them? Many thanks for the nice work. Sorry for being late but yes, you need to put the bios files in .pcsx/bios at the root of the FAT32 partition. he...
