Why is the spanish community so much ahead compared to the rest of the world?
Spain is different.. if you could understand Spanish, you would get shocked with GP32spain forums, there's always humour, and as we say it, "buen rollito", with a constant Hacapulco dialect in the background (you won't understand what is it until you read it)..fishybawb posted on Oct 12 2005 at 08:22 PM said:I think Craig mentioned something about a 20 second bootup time with the beta firmware...
NDS..........270gr with battery
PSP..........273gr with battery
GP2X........157gr without batery. 193gr with them.
Some quick notes:
The console is a beta version, some hardware errors (most are already fixed in new units), unfinished hardware, cannot run software directly from SD, batteries don't work (need to use AC adapter)
-Much smaller than Anarchy thought first.
-Stick looks firstly a bit hard, but it's cool.
-Video playing is VERY good.
-Includes a menu showing the battery charge and a estimation of the time remaining.
-Preloading system with videos that makes them loading faster after you've loaded them the first time.
Excellent video playing. An example:
Compression: DivX 4 + LAME MP3
Bitrate: 905 kb/s.
Sound: 128 kb/s 44100Hz
Supports SMI subtitles. Dual audio.. not yet tested.
Perfect MP3 and OGG playing.
Perfect image viewing, tested with resolutions 1600x1200, 1640x1200, 785x1100, fast loading, excellent quality.
Ebook option not available on current firm version.

And yes, the firmware beta takes tooooo much to load.. (in fact, that's the "new kernel" who whas put on the GP2X site some days ago).

Wow, I just had a look at the 30MB movie, and the software clearly still needs some work... movies play seemingly at full rate, while displaying still pictures is surprisingly slow (watch the amount of time it takes between the guy clicking the shoulder button and the displayed picture changing - I haven't seen pictures take that long to decode since my first PC)Alpha2 posted on Oct 12 2005 at 06:43 PM said:I think we can safely assume video on GP2X should look pretty damn sweet even from these recordings... and the one Craig posted.

Spanish community is bigger, as my spanish friends said before, we had GP32 officially launched here. It was sold in many big shops all arround Spain, and we are a lot of people who have a GP32.
Just look at the numbers:
gp32x.de (world-wide community) - 5,530 registered users / Most users ever online was 198
GP32Spain.com (spanish community) - 12,737 registered users / Most users ever online was 599
Theres some spanish people registered in gp32x.de too
So I think the webmaster should change the "Latest posts from the biggest GP32 and GP2X Discussion Board"
Hahah, just joking, both communities are not competence, just two really nice commuities that should be friends!!
Hey, we're not an american community, are we ? :huh: :lol:Jarska333 posted on Oct 13 2005 at 10:28 AM said:You may have more people, but they're lean and mean, while we are lazy blobs of fat. We're still "bigger"...
