ScummVM (17-07-2009) (Dingoo Linux misc)

ScummVM compiled statically, should work on any rootfs.

Release notes:

Curse of Monkey Island now works. It runs nearly full-speed, totally playable. Only remaining glitch I have found is the controls for the cannon at the beginning are a bit screwy, so you can either get a saved game from pc after that or muddle through (it’s still possible). Any other games that use VGA graphics should work as well. Not sure how well the ship combat in the middle will work though 😀

It’s now using the latest SVN version of ScummVM so some more games should be supported.

Left trigger is now mapped to “0” so you should be able to get through copy protection dialogs.

One thing to note is I’ve made some fairly large changes and due to the fact ScummVM supports so many games I can’t really test any significant amount of them. So it would be great if you could post up what games you get working.

Another thing, I have a bad feeling the older version may have been built with no optimization flags at all (why wouldn’t they use -O2 by default?). So it may be possible this version will be a hell of a lot faster .

Biniax v1.0 (Dingoo Linux Game Port)

Biniax is an original and unique arcade logic game. It requires just a minute to learn the rules and you will get hours of gameplay.

The gaming field is a 5×7 grid filled partially with pairs of elements. Every pair consists of two different elements combined of four possible. You control the box with an element inside. You can move around the field on empty spaces. You can also remove pairs of elements, if you have the same element as the one of the pair. When you remove the pair your element becomes the other one element of the pair and the score is increased; The gaming field scrolls down slowly (increasing the speed with your progress) and your goal is to stay as long as possible on the field. Remember, that if you can not take the pair in front of you, the scrolling will move your block down!
