Dingoo A320

Post by welshmouse »

hey all

im just here to post a short question n the possibility of porting SCUMMVM to the dingoo A320. Its a relatively new handheld thats quickly gathering a large fanbase. the system itself is the successor to the gemei x760+ and is running a varriant of UcosII OS, however we currently have people working on bringing linux to the device.

the dingoo has a growing user base, and so far the biggest requests have been for ports of MAME and SCUMMVM. we already have ZodTTD working on mame, so i thought i post up a message here just in case theres someone willing to do the hard work and help bring us SCUMMVM.

more info can be found here

Thanks :)

I guess without owning one of those devices, nobody here will be able to make port :).

But as long as SDL is available on this device, it should be pretty straightforward to port ScummVM to it.

hey, thanks for the reply.


I belive that craig over at GBAx is offering dingoos for development, so if anyone is interested he may be able to send you one.

linux is now available on dingoo too. its still in its infancy, but it seems like it will make porting apps alot simpler.

dingoos can be bought real cheap from successHK and DealXtreme, so anyone who wants to buy one should check it out. im still holding my breath for scumvm...

According to the link http://dingoo-scene.blogspot.com/ you posted, they just got ScummVM running (under Linux, at least) -- see also http://a320.freeforums.org/scummvm-on-d ... -t461.html .
So maybe that already settles the issue for you? :)

A native port probably would be possible. If somebody donates the device to me, I'd be willing to make one (assuming that the SDK etc. are available for free, and it uses GCC, so that I can setup a cross compiler on OS X).

:lol: ha, did my daily checks of dingoo sites and saw the post about scummvm on linux. for a moment i tohought someone had gone and ported it over night after seeing my post here :D, but i dont mind as long as i can eventually use it.

thnks for the offer, it looks like this port should do the job atm, but if you contact craig at gbax he may or may not be able to donate a dingoo to you.
there is an sdk available for free, though i know little about it. its called S2DSDK, perhaos you know of it?

well i guess id better go find out how to install linux on my dingoo...

The Toolchain (S2Dsdk) is based on GCC (mips compiler).

All dingoo libs are crossplattform with windows/dingoo. So you can develop on Windows Visual Studio Express 8/9 and compile an executable and if this works you can compile the same code with the gcc mips compiler.

Very easy. Only Sound is a problem, because the SDK libs only support PCM.

get the SDK form here:
http://x11.gp2x.de/a320/

You can get clean sample from my repository.

I ported the PIE emulator to Dingoo using this SDK.

Get the source @:
svn://zwischenwelt.org:20684/dingoo/pie320

It was very easy.

Cool, has anyone tried this who can comment on how well this works with the Dingoo's D-pad and buttons, please?
