Nová linuxová herní konzole GP2X se začne prodávat 18. května a kromě nativních i emulovaných her nabídne také přehrávání videa, hudby a prohlížení fotek.

Kapesní zařízení obsahuje dva 240 MHz procesory, 64 MB RAM, 64 MB Flash, SD slot a USB konektor. Informace se zobrazují na LCD s rozlišením 320×240 a napájení zajišťují dvě běžné AA baterie, které nabídnou až šest hodin hraní. Cena by se měla pohybovat v přepočtu okolo 5000 Kč.

    Tuhle vecicku jsem asi pred 3 mesici pres eBay poridil pritelkyni na nocni sluzby do prace. S gigovou SD kartou je to super na filmecky. Co se tyka her, tam je to trosku slabsi, na rozchazeni emulatoru nemam cas a hotovych veci je poskrovnu a spise low-end hry. Dejte mi 20 vyvojaru o otevru si vyvojarskou firmu pro hry, podle me otevrena platforma by mohl bejt herni trhak jednou jakoze ty hry muzete v pohode portovat i na jiny konzolky... tada kdyz na to mate samozrejme.

    Jinak vypocetni vykon v poho, PrBoom, uHexen i Quake I bezi paradne. Displej dobrej.

    Pozor,

    ted ale koukam, ze byl nedavno uvolnenej novej firmware v. 2.0, kterej dost huste tuhle masinku jeste vylepsuje (citace Wikipedie):

    * Decreasing average boot time from approximately 30 seconds to 14 (from sliding the power switch to appearance of the main menu, at which point the machine is fully usable).

    * Fixing a problem with mounting the GP2X as a Mass Storage Device via USB, and allowing the NAND memory to be mounted as a writable disk in a similar fashion.

    * Changing the Flash filesystem to 2 partitions, the integrated software (e.g. menu and video/audio/photo/ebook software) on a read-only YafFS filesystem, the remainder of the empty space on a user-writable partition.

    * Adding USB Host support for use of USB devices attached to the machine via breakout box or custom cable, such as mice, keyboards, gamepads and external hard drives / USB Flash sticks.

    * Support for mounting external hard disks and other USB storage devices and reading/writing data from them on the GP2X itself in the same manner as an SD card or the system's NAND memory.

    * Correction of a glitch that could cause accidental flashing of the firmware with an empty SD card.

    * Power-saving measures including altered clockrates for the main CPU in the menu and video player application.

    * An integrated LCD tweaker feature in the main menu allowing adjustment of the screen to remove 'scanline' effects; user selections saved after system shutdown unlike third-party programs for the same function.

    * USB Networking support allowing internet access via wired or wireless network interface adapters (e.g. USB 802.11x Wireless sticks and USB Wired Ethernet adapters).

    * Samba, Web Server, Telnet and FTP Server Support to allow the GP2X to be read from and written to over a USB network connection as a Windows Networking shared resource, FTP server and/or Web Server, or connected to via Telnet for terminal access.

    The latest firmware (v2.0) upgrades has fixed most issues with the device, such as USB not working on 1.1 connections. A second release of the GP2X hardware has fixed the joypad and screen (both of which have been altered from the original design). When purchasing a GP2X, be sure to get the GP2X MK2 (7th Edition) — these have the altered screen and joypad and the most recent firmware. In the MK2, the joystick assembly is rotated 45 degrees to turn the diagonal bias into an ordinal bias for better control of emulated games, menus and suchlike. The screen has been switched to a new supplier - the new screen is brighter and there are no longer scanlines, but it is, according to the UK distributor, worse to look at.

    Rozjetí emulátoru je snadné, stačí si ten oblíbený vybrat na http://archive.gp2x.de - to je kompletní databáze všech souborů pro gp2x, které tam kdo uploadne. Na gp2x je dost emulátorů jako MAME, Neo Geo, Megadrive, Master system, NES, SNES, atd.

    Jinak tady http://emulators.parby.cz/ se snažím psát novinky o aplikacích pro gp2x.
