Dingoonity (Dingoo misc)

As a more or less result of the massive loss of information and discussions on the A320 Freeforum boards, here comes Dingoonity.

Dingoonity is a collection of Dingoo-related sites, in one easy to remember location. They have got boards, developer blogs, and a Dingoo wiki.

The design is neat and overall it makes a professional impression.

a320.freeforums.org (Dingoo misc)

One of the larger boards out there, taking care of the Dingoo, has been victim by one of it’s moderator going nuts.

Read on here:

Well people,

I’m sorry to say that one of the moderators (Dan) went loco for some unknown reason. He deleted all posts in the forum and banned the other moderators and various users. He also thought he had banned the admin (me), which is ofcourse not possible.

All people who got banned or blocked by this piece of sh*t have been restored.

I’m looking into correcting this issue, but I have to be honest, I didn’t take the payed for rollback subscription, so I don’t know if it is at all possible. I’m hoping freeforums keeps backups from which they can put us back.

At the moment all moderators have been relieved from their duties untill further notice.

In case I can’t set the forum back, you can go to another forum somewhere else or restart posting here, I’ve seen toddler has been posting his update, which I’m gratefull for… If the forum really restarts I’ll get the rollback subscription ofcourse, so something like this can’t happen in the future.

Sorry guys,

For the homebrew scene this, in fact, is a MASSIVE loss of resources, so hopefully things will be getting reposted elsewhere or the free forums getting restored.

Dingux-Colem v1.1.0 (Coleco Vision emu for Dingoo Linux)

Dingux-Colem is a port of ColEm to Dingoo Linux (Dingux).


– A thumbnail image is now displayed in the file requester
while selecting any file with the same name of a previously
saved game (roms, keyboard, settings).
It might be very helpful to recognize that game later if you
have thousand different games in your rom folder !
– Save state dates are displayed in the emulator window
– Save state files are now saved using gzip compression
(with STZ as file extention). It’s much faster to save
or load states now.
You can use gzip or 7-zip to convert old STA to STZ.
STA file format is still supported for loading, so you
convert your previous saved files inside the emulator.
(it’s now easier to identify and to load the right save state slot)
– Cheat support !
– Memory monitoring engine to find your own cheat code !
– Text editor to modify the global cheat.txt file
– Text editor to write your own comments on games
– Display first comment line while browsing game files
– Auto fire support for second joystick
– Zip rom files are decompressed in memory (much faster !)
– Improve file requester with virtual keyboard to choose
sequentially rom files beginning with a given letter
– Add documentation for settings in help menu
– Auto-fire mode, press RTrigger+X to switch it on/off
– Add several new hotkeys :
. settings such as fps, render mode, auto fire speed
can now be directly modified inside the emulator
(no need to enter in the settings menu)
. quick save / quick load current state
(no need to enter in the main menu)

Just4Qix WIP (Dingoo Linux Game Port)

mrLogan released another nice program for Dingux. This time he it’s a Qix style game named “Just4Qix”.

Goal is to fill a decent amount of your playing screen to get to the next stage and uncover a picture which is hidden behind it.

Release notes:

WIP Just4Qix

A little bit of phun inspired by Gals Panic.

This has game has some great music and works fine in Linux. However the music only plays with the Dingux system before the current one. The current Dingux system results in “UNRECOGNISED FORMAT” when trying to load MOD music files through SDL_mixer.

Copy the folder as is into Dingux and make a shortcut to just4qix.

Game Controls

D-Pad moves player.
Holding down Fire ‘A’ while moving allows player to fill areas.
SELECT = ESCAPE Game, Menu etc.

HELP: I have included all source and makefile etc because I feel that the game without music is a bit of a show stopper and I am hoping someone may be able to shed some light on why its not working on the latest build of Dingux?
