i'd really like to help with the funding...but paypal is out of the question and i'll see if i can setup a moneybookers account. it can't be too hard to raise 300 bucks afterall. heh... exophase mentioned that he would like to have a Z too... maybe we could help him out too. arming zodttd and exophase with Z's could result in some serious weapons of mass time wasting playing emu's...

I wonder... maybe it's time for a new thread ? we could draw more attention with a topic like zPSX revival or something alike. after all, it's not about the end of zPSX anymore  

Or maybe danboid could rename the thread ?

Done!

Indeed, a psx emu would be about the best (most advanced) gaming machine our cxxxx's would be capable of emulating (I would imagine a N64 would be out of the question- zodttd?) but I've long been disappointed that we don't have a good Megadrive or Neo-Geo emulator for the Z. Both those platforms are emulated full speed w/sound without having to overclock on the GP2X, which is of course only a 200Mhz ARM device.

The other emu I've long dreamed on having on the Z is xMAME complete with cyclone 68k emulator. All the best arcade games that MAME supports use the 68000 cpu but no-one has ever been bothered integrating it- really annoying! Theres also a ARM z80 emu that needs to be integrated into xmame. If this goes on much longer I'll be forced to learn to code

Squidge ported Final Burn Alpha Plus to the GP2X upon my request, and it could probably get ported to the Zaurus.

Another project I'm working on and want the Z for, in fact, is a ARM Dynarec for DOSBox. I've been in touch with the DOSBox team and they've been very helpful and will merge my work to their CVS if all goes well.

hmmm...come to think of it, i'd rather have a fullspeed dosbox than a fullspeed psx emu. i'm a big fan of old dos games. in fact i think those years should be called the golden age of gaming... XCOM2:TFTD is the first game that comes to mind...

Even though it's DOS4GW, theres also Syndicate Plus. I got it running on the Z but slowly. Thats a good reason alone to get an ARM Dynarec for it.

Hmm, I can't run 0.9-3 (quits with "illegal instruction" whenever I try to load a rom) - but 0.9-2 runs just fine. When I change the resolution first to 320*240, it runs fullscreen.
If 0.9-3 is even faster, I must get it going.

Anyone runs it on the 2.6 kernel ? (r197 or up ?)

BTW : the pacman collection V2 and sonic seem to run fine (maybe sonic is still a bit slow).

Chero.

Anyone knows how I could run 0.9-3 ?
If I get it going, I'm in for another € 30.
(where is the donation link ?)

Ok, I added the donation link in my signature.

I don't know why gpSP is giving people issues on the Zaurus. I didn't create the port. Though I can easily port it to the Zaurus myself with updates straight from Exophase (original author of gpSP) in a more official manner.

I just sent you $30.

I said I was in for $20 but the exchange rate from euros is good these days

For pdaXrom? In the feed. It doesn't have "lib" in front of it; it's just SDL.
SL-C750- pdaXrom beta 1 (mostly unused)

noden: Thank you so much! I really appreciate this! Progress is being made on psx4all's ARM Dynarec as we speak. Getting it on the zaurus will be great!

So far noden is the first to donate for this funding. I'll keep track of donations in the signature.

it's nodens with an S at the end

anyone that do not want / can't use paypal, but is willing to donate via moneybookers, PM me. If you send money to me via moneybookers.com I'll donate the same amount to zodttd paypal account, giving you credits for the donation.

But if you can use paypal, do it, it'll be way simpler

Thanks for the help nodens. For those not following the psx4all project here:
http://www.gp32x.com/board/index.php?showtopic=37435

ZPSX will bring a playable PS1 emulator on the Zaurus for pdaxrom and possibly other distros upon request or donation. It has compressed ISO support, sound, fullscreen rendering, a much improved ARM Dynarec for CPU Emulation, savestates/memory card support, etc...

I've been disassembling codeblocks from the ARM dynarec's outputted recompiled code and it's equivalent MIPS instructions. Luckily Exophase has been a huge help and given me his disassembler code as well as many performance tips. Just today with his help I added another 9 FPS (!) on some games and 3-5 FPS in general. For instance on the 200MHz ARM GP2X handheld, Buster Bros Collection went from 43 FPS to 50 FPS. I'll need to framelimit for ZPSX now so games dont go too fast.

Thanks for the support everyone!
