MRC translator cax made a mod of Zx-81's Dingux port of Marat Fayzullin's fMSX. He's felt a few features were missing and added the following:

  • added full-screen up-scaling
  • added MegaROMs type auto-detection by SHA1 (so games like Aleste and Batman work now)
  • assigned "Exit" from menu to X button
  • first save state is loaded automatically on ROM opening
  • path to last opened rom/dsk is remembered after exiting from emulator
  • fixed "sound persists on state loading" bug
  • fixed gfx garbage in menu (manifests itself in full-screen mode)
  • fmpac.rom is not loaded after reset if "Music FM-PAC" is switched off in Settings

Update: fixed loading zipped ROMs (was broken in original mod release)

Damn you MSX fans!

Since OpenMSX and this you have now recklessly bought so many Dingoos, that now I can't get my defected one replaced as they are all sold out!

grrr... Now I have to wait until next patch is ready...

I've heard on dingoonity forum that Dingoo production was stopped for some time but will be resumed after Chinese New Year holidays in the end of February.

I don't think the MSX emulator for native Dingoo OS will be created soon, if at all.
Start using dingux, it's really easy.
