I'm running, I'll let you know :)
it wont boot after cd menuand press (track ball down + Enter) to switch g1 to gp2x mode.all it is is blue screen.When I hold down track ball and enter it says error
Here's the same, i don't get any error but I'm stuck at blue screen. I'm using JF Cupcake with unionFS.I already checked date on my Debian installation.
how do you check date on debian install?
You simply type "date" (without quotes, of course)
ok Im in I have no clue how but im in hahah time..What I did was hold down enter then press the track ball
How Do You Get Debian Running on JF Cupcake??
?I'm still stuck here :(Are you able to reproduce the sequence to start it correctly?
well I finnaly got through and i exit. Do I have to go through the whole prcess again after reboot?
flip79, did you do this?cd /gp2x/menupress track ball down + enter
rothany, next time you boot debian, you just need to do this.cd /gp2x/menupress track ball down + enter
Here's what it says:Could not initialize SDL: Unable to open a console terminal. Segmentation faultI think here's the problem because if I do a quick trackball+enter TWICE I see the same error (I think that it's giving the same error, but "hided" by GP2X mode?)
ok...have you downloaded/installed the previous package (j1a.tar/j1b.tar)?
i meant for android 1.1 that I released last week...
I received your e-mail tonight, so I recovered the three emails from last week and I downloaded/installed these binaries. Previously I didn't installed them because of 1.5 incompatibility (this is the first install of GP2X I made on my G1).
(from the settings):Build numberdream_devphone-userdebug 1.5 CRB43 148830 test-keys
flip79, try this... (type it in under debian shell)% export SDL_VIDEODRIVER=dummy
And... here we go!!!!after the export command it has started, thank you very much!!! :)
ok...i need to fix this...This is strange...i forced it to SDL dummy as console no longer supported on 1.5 cupcake but somehow it didn't work for you...
when i try to convert roms i get 2 errorsfile not found and could not allocate memroy .Roms are in sdcard/gp2x/cps2/roms
Now I'll try to do something with roms.
one more thing I just downloaded directly from comp. to sdcard for roms.Do I have to follow step 2?
rothany, did you do this?cd /gp2x/cps2./rc roms/xxxx.zip
for now, let's try step 2 (wget http://....)i never tried unionfs
I would like to be beta tester, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
yes Jriono I did do that cd /gp2x/cps2./rc roms/xxxx.zipI still get errors
which rom files?
and did you get rom files via wget?
or lynx? that's what i tested...i never tested unionfs/direct files sharing..etc
no i downloaded from my pc a
do this...it will print out zip file archive info.unzip -l xxxx.zip
btw, if you don't have unzip..download it% apt-get install unzip
Hello JRIONI, I want to tell you that I just tried Super SF2 and it worked very well, congratulations for your excellent work!Keep going with next releases because this piece of software (maybe in the future with a little more user-friendly installation) can become a killer application for Android!I'll wait for MAME emulation :PJust a question: do I have to run max.me everytime, before running GP2X? If not, how I get original CPU speed, to save battery (and the CPU itself :)?Thank you.
Yes, if you're using max.me script, you need to do this after phone powers up.I used Open Overclocker which seemed to set to max automatically even after phone powers up.you can copy max.me to min.me and change number to smaller value (eg. 128000 instead of 528000). and run that..but i found battery was doing ok even at max cpu....
flip79, btw, if you can find out how to share files with android + debian, please let me know.I'm sure everyone prefers this method...
Sure, if I'll found a way I'll post here on your blog!
If you want to adjust clock manually, please try to install the following app (free) from market.Open OverclockerFor max, set both to 528.For normal, set max to 384 and min to 128.
Thank you again!I just tried both Open Overclocker and the Overclock widget, the 2nd one seems better for me, it has a lot of option.

hey J im still having problems cache roms
Also I used wget rom in Debian but it doesnt save to any where i cant find it on memroy stick
...strange...did you max out your disk space?try this.%dfalso, when you run wget...did it show the progress bar that actually was downloading..?
yes showed progress bar and finished.When I was done I tryed to download again cause I didnt find it it completed like it was there.Also plenty of space on memory card
please email me the url.I'll try it myself.btw, if the file is there already, it will save it with filename.1 extension
It not there cnt find it.Emailed you the link
ok tryed it with differnt rom ssf2t.The saving says saving to 'index.html?url=www.blogforvideogames.com%2froms%Fssf2.zip'saved but cant find it anywhere
To share files between Android and Debian I use mount --bind ie in startdeb script i include:busybox mount --bind /sdcard $mnt/mnt/sdcardbusybox mount --bind /system $mnt/mnt/android/systembusybox mount --bind /data $mnt/mnt/android/dataafter mounting the debian file system and before the chroot (obviously need to make the folders on the deb system first)
I wanna test!Email: Hyptonix@yahoo.com-Cheers
Is anyone else getting ERROR: File not found or CRC32 not correct. "CPU1" ? I'm using open overclock and it's set to 528. It also hangs there and I have to restart the phone. This is with the Marvel vs Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes and Marvel Super Heroes.
They are both cached with out any errors.
I just tried and it worked...I used these two zip files.mvsc.zipmvscj.zipYou only need to generate cache file for mvscj.zip
did you get them from the website in the email?
no, i searched on google...type this in google search mvscj.zip cps2make sure it's cps2 rom files, not other.
Thanks, is there list to see which roms we need for the game and which one to cache?
http://wiki.gp2x.org/wiki/CPS2emuI usually avoid any rom.zip file with a special instruction like this..."only work if option Decrypt is activated"
Thanks, I appreciate all the help. This is a great program. Are we going to have to reinstall everything once you get NES and SNES support on it?
No...no..no..I understand some pain on the first installation.... :)For the next patch, it'll be just another tarball to extract.That's it.
Hi there,I got that running like clockwork after sorting your terminal app thing (It didn't install directly with apps on sd card hack. I had to remove symbolic link, recreate app folder and install it then manually copy the package to the sd card b4 setting up the apps on sd card again).I have tested Aliens vs preditor and D&D shadow over mystara and they both worked great.The phone has gone a little wierd from time to time after running gp2x and exiting (can't exit jterm properly with exit or trackball down+D) but that could be down to other things as i only upgraded system recently. I will let you know if i come accross any bugs.great work - its fantastic and realy fast. I'm intersted to know how you got graphics working not through android! look forward to snes and megadrive/genasys emu!!Thanks loadsMerlin
Oohh! i don't know who origionnutter2000 is but that last comment was from me!! (i just remembered - yes i do know who it is. they used my computer last night!!!)
I would be happy to email@example.com
Can't wait to be able to play some snes and gba on my Dream. How much will this app cost?
I'm having trouble getting my roms to cache correctly. I used wget and looks like I downloaded the roms fine but when I try to cache , I get the same 2 errors rothany was getting. Just wondering if you had a fix for this. Thanks
For those who having a trouble in generating cache files, please make sure you put rom zip files under ./cps2/roms directory.
