A320.emulate.su breaks the news on a brand new Dingux based console, coming soon:R480 - new console based on Dingux June 26, 2011 | By adminA month ago, we have intrigued you a little vague teasers of the new console based on Dingux of the Russian company. For simplicity, further discussion will give her the code name: R480 .It's time to tell and show more action in this innovative, nanotechnology product of Russian-Chinese engineering: Under the cut a little Q & A session on topics that are not disclosed in the video. We expect you to additional questions in the comments and will try to answer or send the developers.Of course, until more questions than answers. It is understandable that many are waiting for the "dry numbers" characteristics, but to get even they are not so simple.We can not make out the test samples are and look inside. The developer is also not eager to share the console specification, for fear of the invisible hand of the Chinese market.Key moment …

In fact we must use the version in development that can be found on this page ( devellopement latest build) is actually version 1.4.0 unfinished, unstable, a type of beta if they want, for the moment I have no problem with Land of Lore, but I still advise to keep ScummVM 1.3.0 for other games.
the beginning of the game and a little further to show that it runs well ...(Video coming soon)How to play?If you want to play, you need the version of ScummVM I send above and the cd version of the game (I could not with the floppy disk version). With Daemon Tools (for example, but another virtual drive will do) open the cd copy all the folders and files in a folder name of your choice. Copy "kyra.dat" present in the file of ScummVM to the game folder "data".In…

[Dingux] DeminorHello, here is a new small portage Dingux. It's "Deminor," created by a deminer for axelorque wiz, I based on the version of the Motorola ZN5 worn by EXL (thank you;)). For those who do not know the game of Minesweeper, the principle is simple. make sure not to reveal a bomb box, your only clues are the numbers shown in some cells. They give you the number of bombs in the adjacent squares. By inference you should figure out where the bombs and therefore indicate a small flag. Keys Start: Revealing a box X: Set a flag R: Reset Select: Exit Up, down left, right: to untie the grid downloads Deminor -> the gameDeminor -> Source code Deminor -> another link Have fun;) to discuss on dingoomania or dingoonityThanks again to perrOdingoo for the newz!:)

Code Copy for Dingux

Code Copy for dinguxCODE COPY
INTRODUCTION
Code Copy is a simple puzzle game in lua using Love2D. You are represented with a block pattern at the start of each level, the goal is to reproduce the pattern in the level by firing a shot that will either set a block or remove a block.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS (dingux)
You will need the nLove framework for dingux. CodeCopy assumes that nlove is placed under /local/nlove. The CodeCopy.love package should be under /local/nlove/games.
Create a bash script to load the game. If you place the nlove and the codecopy package as above then the bash script will be:
'#!/bin/sh
/boot/local/nlove/nlove.dge /boot/local/nlove/games/CodeCopy.love'
If you are using gmenu2x this can be added as a link
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS (MAC, PC…)
This has also been tested on a MAC using LOVE. Download and install LOVE then double click on CodeCopy.lo…

Windows 3.1 on Dingoo

Here’s a stellar achievement from coccijoe: http://coccijoe.blogspot.com/2011/06/video-windows-31-sur-dingux-via-dosbox.html (Thanks to perradingoo for the tip!)Don’t forget to ask why!Windows 3.1 on DinguxHello!
Recently, I had fun trying to install Windows 3.1 on my Dingoo:)
and I succeeded! (y 'some good flat anyway)
I go through DosBox, the "beta test" of Slaanesh, and not the alpha, which is available on his blog.
I'll let you watch some videos.Here you can see the launch of the Windows installation Following some problems with installing the printer: / Completing the installation and first boot of windows And the launch of Windows I want to clarify that it is not really "useful", as you can see it's still slow, although once the shipments are made one moves pretty well I doubt we can use games bigger as solitaire and minesweeper. More for the moment I can not use the mouse buttons, it comes from this version …

Booboo shares thoughts on NJ Pocket

Booboo very kindly dropped me a note about the NJ Pocket:The black glossy blob: that's the microcontroller.
Usually, the silicon is encapsulated in a epoxy body with pins, and tiny wires are connected from the pins to the silicon. Then what you have is a package easy to handle and solder on a PCB using standard techniques.
However, it is also possible to buy the bare silicon die from the manufacturer. You just glue the die to the PCB and then connect the wires from the die to pads on the PCB. Finally, you put a few drops of epoxy to make it a solid, robust block like the one you see in the picture.
Advantages: cheaper for very large scale production, you save the cost of encapsulating the die as a component.
Disadvantages: you need special, very expensive equipment to connect the wires from the silicon die to the PCB (the junction is made by ultrasonic vibration).
Also, for us it means that since there are no marks on…

The unit is actually pretty well made overall, IMHO. No loose parts and lots of screws holding things down.

Cheap Chinese Company seeks Cheap Labour

I make no secret of the fact that we here at Dingoo-Scene absolutely love DX.  We love it because it epitomises all that is changing the world in the gadget space. We love it because it sells anything you could ever hope, for a fraction of local retail.  We love it because they always ship or refund. And we love it because it is our window to the mysterious market known as China, from where the next big thing resembling a Dingoo will surely come.We also love it because they’re prepared to make offers like this one, which face it, like THAT offer, can’t be refused:DealExtreme Innovation Internship Programby DealExtreme under Inside DXAre you bored and need a change?Do you have no friends, or all your friends have gone for the summer?Forced to do nerdy summer job or attend some geeky summer courses?If you are looking for an escape or just something fun, new and exciting, then you are in luck.Currently DealExtreme is offering an overseas exchange program, called DealExtreme Innovation In…

NJ Pocket – Shock horror – they really are 16 bit games!

Remember this elcheapo 60 in one game player that allegedly has “16 bit games”?? Imagine my surprise – it really does!A few have started arriving in users’ hands.  Here is an early recipient’s review from DX: takashio

ReplyFine arrived today, I had a hour or so to check it out.
But first, here's the pictures.
It's a nice, heavy device. It has a single audio speaker on the back, and a directional pad that is comprised of separate buttons (and not really that good). Buttons are hard to press.

The resolution of the screen, is really low as I suspected.

The hardware supports some pretty colored graphics, and some simple paralax scrolling.

SCUMMVM 1.3.0June 02, 2011, 12:39:04 AM by qbertaddictSCUMMVM has been updated to version 1.3.0QuoteIt has been longer than usual since the last release. Nevertheless the team is happy to announce the release of ScummVM 1.3.0.
The release is truly feature-rich: in particular we are introducing support for a new platform, WebOS, and adding a set of new games: Urban Runner, Playtoons, Toonstruck, Hugo series, Living Books, Backyard Baseball. We have also continued to work hard on the SCI engine, so Amiga and some Macintosh versions of the games are supported now too.
