    Custom Battery Results

    I've now assembled a custom battery for my GP2X made out of three 3.7V 800mah Ipod 4th generation lithium polymer batterys and benchmarked it. It lasted 5hr10minutes playing DrMDX at 200mhz with the sound on (used the looping xenon 2 demo for it so it was mostly a full load all the time). I'm...

    Wiring Batteries Together

    I should be getting a trio of these batteries sometime in the next week : http://www.batteryspace.com/index.asp?Page...ROD&ProdID=2332 However looking closely at the connectors it looks like the battery has a +, - and ground wire. When connecting them in parallel, do I ignore the ground wires...

    Li- Mods?

    I've been looking at various forms of batteries for the GP2X to alliviate the 3-ish hour battery life and have been looking at doing an ultra basic mod using Lithium ion cells. I've got some questions: I've seen a voltage regulator that would let you get a constant 2.85V @ 0.7A from a CRV3...

    Feedback On Thumbstick Design

    ok, I've been messing around a bit in AutoCAD and have got something of a base design. I haven't figured out how to show a view with the measurements yet (first time using the program) but the thumb pad has a diameter of 12mm and is 3mm deep. Ignore the colours and the ring, they're just things...

    How Much Would You Pay For A Joystick Mod?

    I'm currently looking at getting quotes from plastic manufacturers to see how much it would cost to produce 100 or so joystick mods. These would include a joystick with a much shorter shaft but a slightly wider joystick head with a concave design on the top to improve grip and a piece of...

    Making Battery Benchmarks?

    Now that we've got the ability to change the clock speed and turn off the unused CPU, is there any chance someone could implement the clock speed program into a simple program that does something like display a rotating cube bouncing around the screen and writing the time elapsed to the SD once...

    Rubber Coating For The Joypad

    I've just used the Plasti-Dip on my stick. It does greatly improve the grip and with it the amount of travel you need to do to press a direction doesn't seem as bad when you've a better grip. It took about 4 coats for me to get a coat thick enough to feel confident in it lasting (although the...

    Would it be possible to create a fix for all the people with parrtially corrupt firmware from incomplete patching?

    Narcissu Patch

    OK I've finished the patch to make Narcissu playable on the GP2X. To play it, get onscripter4kr.gpe (it's bundled with the test version of the snes emulator), download narcissu from http://narcissu.insani.org/ and download http://www.ukanime.com/nscript.dat . extract all the files from the zip...

    Instability Caused By Power Drain?

    I've just got some high capacity rechargables for the GP2X and it seems that it largely fixes the movies crashing after a minute or so. As I had tried using fully charged refular batteries before it makes me wonder if most of the problems with the SD access are it needed too much current. Can...

    Crashing Videos?

    Thought I'd create a thread to seperate out this issues (pleeeease don't turn this into another Quake troubleshooting thread). Who else is experiencing extremely unreliable playback then? Most videos crash for me within a minute of starting, I'm not entirely sure this is a battery issue either...

    First Play Reports!

    OK time for people who've got their consoles and had a play to talk about it. Console itself: Without the screen protector on it looks a bit cheapish but when you put it on it looks much much better. The joystick felt a bit stiff at first and had trouble recognising down but when I unscrewed...

    Blank.exe

    ok I've had a particulary nasty adware infection which no scanner would pick up and had extremely crafty ways of regenerating itself (basically no matter what mode you ran in, it regenerated as soon as explorer.exe was accessed). I've managed to remove all the harmfull aspects of it but...

    Concrete Date?

    I know there's been lots of people asking when the consoles out and the answer is "late October" but is there any chance, being just a month to go that we could have a proper date now rather than a vague guestimate? It must be fairly clear by now when they'll have everything ready for the launch...

    Gp2x Technical Info

    I'm sure someone with much more technical knowledge will be able to gather interesting info from this but it's mostly a bit beyond me (although does this confirm it is based off of a redhat build of linux?) but there's some pics which appear to be technical readouts from the GP2x at...

    GP2X Easing Graphics Programming?

    I've got (what I think is) a brilliant idea for a puzzle and I'm looking to create my first game in C/C++ for the GP2X. Although I've a medium amount of experience in C (2 years of uni worth), Graphics confused the hell out of me. The two reasons for this was not understanding the screen buffer...

    Firmware Issues...

    Does anyone know what the firmware will be like for the GP2X? All we've been told is that it runs Linux. Is the OS entirely flashable, is there a BIOS chip and the OS is stored in the flash memory? If the BIOS and LINUX are stored differently will they both be flashable? Just wondering because...

    Peripherals?

    Hope that's spelt right :unsure: With the recent tid bits that GPH have revealed about the GPX2, it got me wondering what extras people would want from the console. So far they've announced a Video out cable (which hopefully will be composite so you can plug it into the front or side of most...

    GP32 Java Vm

    As I've said before I much prefer using Java than C (why couldn't it include Native String support? Why don't Variables get given a Null value on declaration, is there any use for variables filled with garbage?). How fast is the virtual machine? Is it capable of handling smooth 2d engines with...

    Caveman Ugglympics

    one of the idea's I've had for making a game was a remake of a game I loved as a kid on the commadore 64 called Caveman ugglympics. It was a sports game in the style of track and field but had events such as lighting a fire. Unfortunately the Discs I had for it got broken long ago and my memory...
