    That's because it is shitty and buggy. It was never finished. i suggest if you want Dingux, to buy a device that supports Dingux.

    I am not trolling when I say this, but buy a Dingoo. This project was never finished and is a buggy mess. As well the community around this project has been long dead for several years.

    there is barelly an explanation on the first post...
    does this takes advantage of a supported slot 2 device like the DS Linux does?

    It does not, it only works with the DSTwo's CPU and RAM

    I believe it has 32MB of onboard RAM with the MITS CPU.
    The RAM is used for GBA and SNES emulation and it's decent. A slot 2 card is better, but if you don't have one of those, the DSTWO is a decent replacement.
    But if you have a hacked 3DS, GBA injection is even better.

    i know the drill about games and emulation my sweet crystal
    i was reefering to linux specifically
    because i have both dstwo and a m3 perfect, i was thinking if this new dstwo linux version was better.. the old one needs the expansion pack to run a major list of programs

    This is not actually the same as DSLinux. This is a port of Dingux from the Dingoo and only works with the onboard CPU/RAM of the DSTwo

    I just finish to test some stuff with DSTWO Linux Beta1.0 here is my feedback, dunno if it will be helpful 'cause it's seems to be an old thread here, but maybe it could be helpful for not waste time.

    For this test, I used a DS Lite + an EZ Flash 3in1 (not sure if it's helpful or not I don't think so but in the doubt^^) + a DSTWO+ with a 32Go kingston sd class 10

    For this first part, all the apps needs to be placed in the first GAME folder : sd root:\GAME

    NATIVE EMULATORS

    FBA320 V1.0
    It works pretty good, a little bit slow sometimes but very playable, big games needs cache files (like cps2 or neogeo games) you can find the converter here :
    http://dl.openhandhelds.org/cgi-bin/dingoo.cgi?0,0,0,0,115,150

    Some games needs to be run by cache file (.fba) and other by zip file.

    I'v tried different settings here is the one that seems the best I've found :

    Dingoo Mhz : 396 Mhz
    Video aspect : scale fast / scale normal for vertical games (for vertical games it seems you can change to scale fast after a first launch in scale normal)
    Sound : On 24000hz

    Games tested* :

    1941.zip
    1944.fba
    1945kiii.zip
    19xx.fba
    armwar.fba
    avsp.fba
    batcir.fba
    batsugun.zip no sound
    batugnsp.zip no sound
    cybots.fba
    ddsom.fba
    dimahoo.fba (doesn't work but required)
    dogyuun.zip no sound
    donpachi.zip
    dstlk.fba
    gmahou.fba
    grindstm.zip no sound
    guwange.fba
    kingdmgp.zip
    mmatrix.fba
    msh.fba
    mshvsf.fba
    mvsc.fba (doesn't work but required)
    mvcu.fba
    outzone.zip (doesn't work but required)
    outzonea.zip
    progear.fba
    sfa2.fba (doesn't work but required)
    sfa3.fba (doesn't work but required)
    sfz2b.fba
    sfz3j.fba
    sgemf.fba
    varth.zip
    vhunt2.fba
    vsav.fba
    vsav2.fba
    wwfwfest.fba
    xmcota.fba (doesn't work but required)
    xmcotau.fba
    xmvsf.fba

    *Note : .fba files are cache files, they need to be placed in the rom folder with the .zip files.


    MAME4ALL V1.0
    Slow but interesting for some games that have some freezing problems on MAME4ALL DSTWO

    I'v tried different settings here is the one that seems the best I've found :

    Dingoo Clock : 396 Mhz
    Video Depth : 16 bit
    Video Aspect : Scale fast
    Sound : ON 24000hz fast
    CPU Clock : 200%
    Audio Clock : 80%

    Games tested :
    Batman, Gradius 3, Marchen Maze, Mortal Kombat, Out Run, Saint Dragon, Shadow Land, Space Harrier, Super Hang-On, Sunset Riders, TMNT2, X-Men.

    No freezing problems anymore with these games.


    PSX4ALL

    Well, what to say... impressive but slow & no sound, anyway it's a cool port!

    I'v tried different settings here is the one that seems the best I've found :

    Show FPS : OFF
    Set NULL GPU : ON
    Cycle Multiplier : 4

    Games tested :
    Blood Omen, FFVII, Crash Bandicoot, Disney's Hercules, Einhänder, Vagrant Story (save data corruption happens sometimes with this game, nothing to do, just overwrite the corrupted savegame and cross your fingers^^)


    Dingux PicoDrive V 1.35 (openDingux optimized version)

    Very playable when you find the correct settings but the music doesn't work

    I'v tried different settings here is the one that seems the best I've found :

    Renderer : 8bit fast (except for some games like hota for example but just press X in game to switch to the 8bit accurate renderer setting)
    Frameskip : 1
    Sound Quality : 22050hz stereo
    A320 CPU Clocks : 396 Mhz

    Games tested :
    Cyborg, Demolition Man, Earthworm Jim, Flashback, Flink, Heart Of The Alien, NBA JAM, Pitfall, Popful Mail, Sonic, Spiderman, Terminator.

    Note: with some games only the first stage seems to be playable even after convert .bin file to .iso file, .mp3 files and edited .cue file.


    OpenBOR

    It works fine, I've tested more than 50 games, actually it depends of the games and their size, the biggest game I've tested is about 163Mo, up to 163mo all the bigger paks I've tested doesn't seems to work but maybe I didn't find the good version of the games.


    Midpath (java emulator)

    Works fine with little game but little bit slow with bigger game otherwise the maximum file size that the emulator can launch seems to be 1mo. The config file menu need to be edited with notepad to run the emulator in english, you can find a great tutorial here : https://boards.dingoonity.org/dingux-releases/midpath-4-dingoo-v0-1/


    uNGP (Neo Geo Pocket)

    Little bit slow but very playable & very compatible with the ngp games catalog.

    I'v tried different settings here is the one that seems the best I've found :

    Video Options
    Frameskip : 4
    Renderer mode : normal
    show fps : off
    Sync 60 fps : on

    Sound Options
    Emulator sound : on
    Stereo sound : on
    SampleRate : 22KHz


    WSC (WonderSwan Color)

    Slow without sound, setting menu and with a poor compatibility, WSC is not the best emulator but you can play few games, I've tried 15 games, it's playable and actually it's seems to be the only way to play wsc on ds lite.


    DCASTAWAY (Atari St)

    Great emulator with a cool interface menu (but menu freezes sometimes), works fine.


    UAE4ALL (Amiga)

    Good emulator with a cool interface menu, works fine.



    NON NATIVE EMULATORS, TRANSCRIPTORS & GAMES

    For this second part, all the apps needs to be placed in the second GAME folder : sd root:\GAME\GAME


    EMULATORS

    SDL-Vice & FrodoDingoo (Commodore 64)

    It works fine but both are needed 'cause some games works on Frodo and doesn't work on SDL-Vice and vice versa, on SDL-Vice the "m" key & the "n" key are inverted on the virtual keyboard


    Dingux int v1.0.0 (Intellvision)

    It works fine but it's not enought to run all the full Intellvision romset, otherwise, the compatibility is still good you can play with a lot of games, if you install it, it's better to remove all homebrew roms that comes inside the archive, most them doesn't work.


    Dingux-Vectrex

    It works fine, a good emulator.


    neo4ALL (Neo Geo cd & MVS)

    A good emulator to play exclusive neo cd games (except kof96 doesn't work) and games that doesn't work on neoDS, but that's all, 'cause music doesn't work, only sounds. Like DCASTAWAY menu freezes sometimes actually you have less than 1mn to choose your game and settings, to get a little delay before menu freezes, run a game and go back to the menu by pressing R key, now you have time to do your settings.

    I'v tried different settings here is the one that seems the best I've found :

    Frameskip : 1

    CPU Settings
    68K CLK : over
    Z80 CLK : over

    Games tested :
    Ironclad, Crossed Swords II, Futsal - 5on5 Mini Soccer, Last Hope, Neo DriftOut


    TRANSCRIPTORS

    cgenius (Commander Keen)
    CZDOOM*
    Duke3D
    hheretic
    HHexen
    hota (Heart Of The Alien / Another World 2)
    lotr (lord of the rings vol.1)
    OpenJazz (Jazz Jackrabbit)
    OpenTitus (Titus the Fox)
    RAW320 (Another World)
    rott (Rise Of The Triad)

    *Note : CZDOOM can crash and corrupt files sometimes, especially when you launch PWADs, it's better to make a copy of the prboom, prboom.cfg, prboom.wad and prboom-game-server files somewhere else on your sd card then when CZDoom crash, you can remove the corrupted files and copy/paste the good ones by using DSOrganize, don't forget to remove prboom.log.txt & tranmap.dat files too when it's happen, don't worry, these files will be automatically regenerated by the prboom engine.

    Note 2 : Before to apply the method above check your prboom.log.txt with DSOrganize, normally if you had a czdoom crash just before, the size of your prboom.log.txt should be 0.0mo, to fix the problem, open the file with DSorganize by pressing A to read the .txt file, then close the file, normally now after reading, your prboom.log.txt regained its original size and then you can launch again CZDOOM.


    GAMES

    Airball
    Arkanoid
    Blockdude
    Boulder Dash
    Bubble Dizzy
    dingux-gchess-v1.1.2
    Gambare Natsuki-san v1.04
    Giana's Return
    Jump'n'Blob
    Minislug
    openggs (Great Giana Sisters remake)
    ProfaDeluxe (Abusimbel remake)
    Sqrxz III
    Zelda Trilogy (ROTH, OLB_US, 3t_v1.1)



    ISSUES

    * sd card corruption (never happens to me for the moment)
    * there is a sound problem with most of the apps, after few minutes the sound stops and you can't quit the app except by pressing R+Start
    * sometimes dmenu.ini files can crash dingux, like CZDOOM, it's better to keep a copy somewhere else on your sd of the dmenu.ini file located in sd root:\LOCAL\dmenu and the dmenu.ini file located in sd root:\LOCAL\dmenu\backup, use DSOrganize to remove/copy/paste the files and fix the bug.

    Takes me back - the DSTWO was the coolest thing before native 3DS hacking. I remember trying Dingux and it being so buggy and overall kind of ass, I more fondly remember when CATSFC and TempGBA. Some really cool late work for the DS.

    Realized I posted a similar sentiment already. Hehe, time flies I guess. Your post is nuts though - I don't know how you tolerated testing that much stuff... whoa.

    Yes you're right, but I'm DS Lite addict, I can't change console for the moment^^ DS2Linux seems to be the only way to play the complete cps2 catalog and other stuffs on ds lite, hopefully, I've just tried things doesn't run without ds2linux, like you said TempGBA and CATSFC are good enough, or Nitrografx for the pce...etc...

    Next test : trying to run Full Throttle, The Dig and Kyrandia 3 at full speed on my ds lite by adding an XCM Hyper Gear Lite ! :D

    It is very interesting to see something like this for a handheld console. I personally have never used Linux, I am a Windows type of person. I just got my brand new DSTWO+ a few days ago, I haven't exactly decked it out yet with what I want. I will watch this topic though to see where this leads. I am happy to see people still use flashcarts other than myself lol.

    Unfortunately the DS doesn't have a good timebase separate from the CPU clock itself (RTC doesn't really count, it's not quite accurate enough for cycle counting) so, most games, even emulators and homebrew, on the XCM HGL will have the unfortunate side effect of running at a faster speed but slower framerate, if that makes sense at all; you would need a way to slow down games, plus stretch the audio from the games, which might require a bit of extra code.

    Plus, the Hyper Gear Lite cannot speed up games and emulators which run from the DSTWO, and the increase in the cartridge bus speed might possibly confuse the DSTWO driver.
