    Wiz's Screen Is Shot!

    I feel your frustration, or actually, I'm sure you're taking it easier than I would. I would probably cry. seriously. I probably shouldn't admit this LMAO. Before buying a wiz, I bought a wibrain UMPC. And its great to play some nintendo 64 on the wibrain computer, but the limited battery life...

    Does Street Fighter Iii 3Rd Strike Run In Fba2X?

    johnboyjr, how cool is this, the very reason I downloaded shock troopers was because of reading YOUR post here at gp32x.de about getting it to work! What other games do you play in finalburn alpha?

    Is The Nes Emulator Fullscreen Now ?

    I'm assuming you mean scaled to full screen. nes - GPFCE is full screen. tearing is noticeable under close inspection, but not enough to ruin play experience. game gear - Alexkidd2x version v0.6 does not seem full screen, but is approximately 70 to 75% fullscreen. Tearing is worse than nes but...

    Does Street Fighter Iii 3Rd Strike Run In Fba2X?

    Hi everyone, I'm stumped. Just played Shock Troopers 2nd Squadw in Fba2x for the wiz so I'm sure I'm handling rom files fine, BUT, when I try to use the game Street fighter III: 3rd strike, the cache tool says "not found!" Experimentally, I changed the file name of the street fighter zip file...

    Glbasic Code Examples

    Good point. How would you "unload" an Image/sprite once you were done with it? Very true. I didn't mind this myself though, as I'm sure there's a good batch converted somewhere, and its just for a novelty. A "cooler" picture viewer than the stock GPH one that's included with the Wiz. It's a...

    Glbasic Code Examples

    iprice, Grrr, was almost finished with my second code example and POOF a power outage erased all my work *cries* lol anyway, here's the code and I'll provide descriptions later for my fellow GLbasic beginners. What I'm hoping you can do for me is help me understand how to use the commands for...

    Glbasic Code Examples

    iprice, nah, nit pick all you want, I knew I wouldn't be getting everything exactly right, in fact, I left out a piece of code that I found out wasn't necessary right before posting it here. Also, I wrote this code literally on my first day at using GLbasic so anyone following along with my...

    Glbasic Code Examples

    Hello everyone! I'm teaching myself GLbasic and thought it would be helpful to post my progress with examples so others can learn it too. For anyone that doesn't know, GLbasic is a B.A.S.I.C. based language that is used with a compiler and tools that can output applications, specifically video...

    Nintendo 64

    I really didn't intend to offend anyone, but I can see what you mean, when I felt pushed, I pushed back a little too hard. I'm just from the other camp on the N64 issue. By other camp I mean that I've noticed a very negative feeling toward N64 emulation as a whole. I don't know if its just the...

    Nintendo 64

    I was speaking about a hypothetical n64 emulator and the ways in which one could achieve similar results. I never argued against the fact that N64 emulation isn't possible on the wiz, simply that emulation is not the only option. You're cynical and negative. And who are you to decide whats not...

    Renaming Files With A Gpe Or Sh Script

    I appreciate the input and I agree with your reasoning, I figured the same thing, but I'm hoping someone who actually knows how the wiz handles bash scripts could shed light on this. I tried an empty script that just calls the wiz's menu, copied from the gpe script from the sdlquake2 port...

    Nintendo 64

    No, I understand quite well the difference between porting and writing of an emulator. I simply use the terms a little interchangeably in this context because a hypothetical N64 emulator port for the wiz would require such heavy modification of how it performs it's emulation that the time and...

    Nintendo 64

    I don't expect anything...I hope for and appreciate what you and others do... Also, I am very right about "porting an emulator is harder than writing a clone of a game," because what emulator are we specifically talking about? N64...so yes, a clone of a N64 game or just a N64 inspired game would...

    Nintendo 64

    I didn't call it magic, or assuming that it is, I'm simply pointing out that if the system you're using doesn't have the muscle to run another system's code unchanged (traditional/conventional emulation), then modification of the code is required. And pointing out that this is very hard to do at...

    Nintendo 64

    Exactly. But there is a real misconception about emulation. The first being "Devs only port emulators that they know the wiz can handle" Devs don't really decide on what to port based on the capabilities of the wiz, but rather what emulators may run well with little to no modification of how...

    Renaming Files With A Gpe Or Sh Script

    Parkydr, I'm inclined to accept your assumption and thanks for the help. I'm now using the scripts as sh files in termula. Although, I seem to be not using the CD command correctly in the script files. I need to cd up two folders, then cd into the movie folder. I tried "CD .." and "CD ../.."...

    Renaming Files With A Gpe Or Sh Script

    SOLUTION ... well, 90 percent solution hehe, slight modification of your code yields satisfactory results... CODE #!/bin/sh for file in *.sub; do mv "$file" "`basename "$file" .sub`.avi"; done; notice the use of semi colons? somehow, this makes this piece of...code...work. Interestingly...

    Renaming Files With A Gpe Or Sh Script

    thanks Parkydr, its obvious that I'm a beginner at shell scripting, made an exploratory change to your code...will try your new example asap. I'm extremely appreciative that you're taking an interest in my pickle (predicament). In termula, your code examples give "expected 'do'" errors. I read...

    Renaming Files With A Gpe Or Sh Script

    yes, I could rename all files. Defiantly makes it simpler. I tried your code as a gpe file, as the following: CODE #!/bin/sh for file in *.avi do mv "$file" "`basename "$file" .sub`" done (after taking your advice to have it change the file extension instead of removing it)...

    Renaming Files With A Gpe Or Sh Script

    hello everyone! here's my pickle...I would like to change the file names of a group of video files in my movie folder, on SD card, with a script file (hopefully a gpe file) can i do this? with the 'mv' or 'rename' commands? if so, could anyone provide an example script that works? Simply put...
