Whats next:

I am was working on getting the 3 version to not suck when emulating X.

a pointless task as the FB version is fine. but it got my head into the code
Spoiler:

When we have a version of x for the 3 that can manage native e-ink updates it will work better. The above screenshot suffers from lag as I am running it via an vnc yoke.

Let me have a look at getting this solid on the 5 then i will go back.

Sound is indeed on the list. having a think about that next

actually the dithering does work better on side scrolling adventures for some reason via the vnc. I should figure out why.

there is an issue where long pressed keys are unpressed.
this needs fixing for driving games etc. doable no doubt.

Touchscreen support has also been added to the FB version of the fbgnuboy build on the touch. to give us options going forward. But I will be focusing on the X version on the touch from now on for a while I think.

Xgnuboy builds okay now:

which means we can start to use some of the flags from
http://gnuboy.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/docs/CONFIG

Spoiler:
humph. well, Failed again to get my head around the dithering code. How one might port the current fb info based dithering into the X implementation is out of my brain price range today.

I could post the code that builds for the xgnuboy.
see if someone else wants to sort out the dithering.

Not much point posting the binary till it's gets sorted.
I may handle the dither in Xephyr though...



However at least the xgnuboy makefiles includes and alsa implementations are in place.

Some sound support:

on the plus side I added sound support the xgnuboy that seems to work great work most of the time on the Touch heh. shocking sound support on these kindles.

Yay me. perhaps a prod with aplay at startup will make it a bit more solid. or a double init. or more error handling ;P



Spoiler:
EDIT:
however not so for the 3.
since cvm seems to want to be active for playback on the 3 and that is currently nerfed this is a problem. plus just to be extra awkward for some reason the sound does nothing despite initialising fine.

I think sound will be a touch only feature. I will rip it out of the 3 build. I will also restore the original kindle input configuration for the 3 since the touch version will use the xinputs.

I am deciding if I should wrap it in a Xephyr as the -title or even direct injected Xnaming is not playing ball : )

This is awesome! Where can I find the download link for the version with audio support, and how do I install it?

Could we put the code for the Kindle gnuboy port on Google Code or GitHub?

Thank you to Andrew Pennebaker for dropping me a note about this thread.

I'm happy to accept (clean) patches to http://code.google.com/p/gnuboy/ . I've not read the complete thread so it looks like you may be using a slightly older gnuboy version so this may require some effort.

You may also want to check out one of the gnuboy (SDL based) front ends like OhBoy.

If you do fork this for the Kindle rather than moving changes upstream, drop me an email with the url so I can link to it in the ports section http://code.google.com/p/gnuboy/wiki/Ports

Will do so! It seems this is a little experiment that got greater attention than I envisioned. I still consider it quick 'n dirty, but I'll see what I can do to push it upstream.

Could someone wrap this in a Kindlet that appears on the home screen and displays a rom file browser?

Woah. I finally understood the jailbreak -> root shell process and got Pokemon Yellow working.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/r8wafy7mro...222_020001.jpg

The keyboard keys work exactly as described. The only issue is the game runs with no sound. Anyone know where I can download an fbgnuboy binary that has sound working for Kindle?

I'm using Kindle 3.4, with 3G, USA edition.

Short answer would be not really.

I can make the sound initialise on the 3 but have had no joy getting output.

(FWIW IIRC pokemon was tough on the eyes.)

The "Could someone wrap this in a Kindlet that appears on the home screen and displays a rom file browser?" is closer to fruition however. As the OLD code from the SoundKloud project (The unreleased kindlet version) can actually probably be re-purposed "AS IS" (with a few tweaks) to do that job. May do that. Or maybe in gtk.

Invoking the alsa lib (ie. sound) is not the issue. perhaps the onboard sound is in the way. Needs more investigation

Had a play doing this via a kindlet... However pausing cvm via the kindlet and safely returning via a callback (or something) is hurting my head.

Will think about another solution.

I keep meaning to make a games launcher for this, then get disheartened when I remember the xgnuboy version isn't dithered.

Glad you got it going. excellent app.
