to Zottdt: if necessary I have a complete linux cross-compiler/libraries tarball for sharp/cacko rom. (although the included sdl lib is the standard one, not bvdd). If you are interested please pm me.

Is it just me, or can you not download psx4zaurus from zodttd.com? I just looked, and didn't see a link or any news about it. I take it the project is abandoned and replaced with iPhone dev stuff?
SL-C750- pdaXrom beta 1 (mostly unused)

plz zodttd, upload the last version of Zpsx on your site. I have formated my SD and I can't find Zpsx on your site.

Does anybody actually have the last version? I've got a couple of playstation games all ready to go, but no emulator.

As far as I can tell, nobody does.

zodttd seems to have lost his copy, and isn't interested in developing for any platform but the iphone now.
and I think you have to send him money to join the "beta test" group before he'll respond to any messages
you post on his forums.  

He seemed really confused by the way we Zaurers kept asking for a source code release-
gave various excuses, but it now appears that the main reason he couldn't ever release any source
was because he planned to make $$$ off it.

I *might* have had an older version of the runtime of the emulator, but seem to remember licensing terms that
he did not want anyone other than himself to distribute it under any circumstance,
even though it was "open source" and "free software" or something.

zodttd: if you're still around, if you think I'm misinterpreting, please feel free to clarify. thanx

I'm certainly disappointed, being one of those who donated to buy him a zaurus.

Good thing I've still got a copy...
SL-C3100 with usb power mod running debian eabi
pdaXii13 still on the NAND for dualbooting
16GB SDHC! (a new one, after I sat on the old one and it went kaput)
D-Link 660 wifi, Socket Bluetooth rev H
External 9800mAh LiIon battery and slimline dvd drive
Homebrew microphone and remote

I'm using the latest version pdax4zaurus_080407
Anyone get the game "Myst" to run?
My screen just stays black after the emu says "Load Success" I have to pull the battery, or use the reset switch to get my Zaurus back.
I left all the video settings at default.
The game "Myst" runs fine on my desktop PC using "Enhanced PSX Emulator".
I also have a game called  "Legacy of Legaia", which I managed to play on my Cacko zaurus with psx4all (there was a Cacko version a couple years ago).
The game Legaia played very slowly and has some "heavy" graphics. It is almost unplayable at that speed. It is an RPG.
I tried it on this version of psx4zaurus, but it just shows a compressed image with repeating graphics.
If I use the command "export SDL_VIDEODRIVER=fbcon", the emu runs full screen in portrait.
If I got a game to work in this mode, it would be difficult to play because it is turned sideways.
If I exit X and run the emu, it runs full screen in portrait also.
If I use the emu in a console with no other commands, it is 320x240 (landscape), but the menu items flicker so much I cannot navigate to my games directory to load a game.
I'm using the SDL that came with the emu. (beta3_sdl_1.2.9_armv5tel.ipk)

EDIT
Could it be that I have the latest pdaxii13 v2 version (5.5) and its newer libraries could be causing my problems with psx4zaurus?
Is "beta3_sdl_1.2.9" incompatible with this version of pdaxii13?

EDIT2
I just tried "Myst" on my Cacko Zaurus with the older psx4all-cacko version.
The game acted like it was loading, then it threw me back to the desktop.

I haven't got any of the "later" versions to work correctly. "070707", "071907", or "080407".
So I went back and tried "psx4zaurus_b4_3"
At least I can get "Legacy of Legaia" to start up in a console at 320x240. (I cannot get any games loaded in the newer versions with this method).
The game loads just like it does with the pxa4all-cacko version. See screenshots.

When trying any of these newer psx4zaurus versions, the menu is constantly "jumping" or "flashing" and I cannot get it to select a game ROM.
I cannot navigate to the games dir. If I put the ROM in the "current" dir, and select the ROM, the menu sends me back to "LOAD SELECTED GAME", So I can never get a game loaded this way.
Running this older version outside of 'X' behaves the same way as the newer versions do.
The screen is rotated counter-clockwise-portrait and the game's graphics are compressed in a narrow band at the top of the "portrait" screen. Also the game graphics are repeated 3 times in this compressed narrow band.

Thanks very much. I searched for hours for it. It's really interesting to try out.
