previous patch broke archos targets since they don't export LCD_PIXELFORMAT at all ... ( i thought it was VERTICAL_PACKING)

now this is fixed

Hmm... I tried your patch with today's CVS on my grayscale 4g. I tried opening Megaman for the original Gameboy, and I get a screen saying "Init exports / Loading default ocnfig / Init video / Init sound / Loading rom". Then there's a box in the middle of the screen that says "MEGAMAN". But then nothing else happens. Any clue as to what might be wrong?

just tried with 4g sim - works fine ...
did you try another rom?
or can you contact me on irc (theli_ua) so we can work on this?
cause i don't own 4g.. someone under nick zigford on irc tested this for me.

seems as Andrés has some rockbox issues not connected to rockboy ...
Comment by Anton Romanov (theli) - Friday, 28 July 2006, 14:32 GMT
heh ... that update to rockboy with universal scaling for color lcds totally breaks this :( :( ....
is there someone, please, who can look into?

Comment by Anton Romanov (theli) - Friday, 25 August 2006, 18:06 GMT
as i wrote earlier patch is out of sync and needs fixing/rework

Is this patch also intended to work with ipod mini 1g? From what I can tell it isn't, I gotta ask though (super newbie).
Comment by Anton Romanov (theli) - Tuesday, 17 October 2006, 06:22 GMT
it *was* .. though now it is broken.
Comment by Travis Tooke (tdtooke) - Tuesday, 17 October 2006, 19:43 GMT
Ok, thanks. I figured it was now broken since I got errors with it and have used other patches successfully. Would it be worthwile to download something from around when this was made from cvs to try?
Comment by Travis Tooke (tdtooke) - Wednesday, 18 October 2006, 04:43 GMT
Hmmm... I downloaded the source from 2006-05-03 and tried this patch and all hunks failed. I only had 2 hunks fail trying to use this on a more current version. Did I do something wrong?
Comment by Anton Romanov (theli) - Wednesday, 18 October 2006, 06:13 GMT
this applied cleanly when it was posted...
anyway this is now obsolete and should done in other way ...

someone with more powers - close this one, please.
Comment by Travis Tooke (tdtooke) - Wednesday, 18 October 2006, 19:29 GMT
I would ask for this to remain open if only because an old source from around this time and this patch are right now the only way some people can get Rockboy. I appreciate and thank you for your effort and patience.
Comment by Anton Romanov (theli) - Thursday, 19 October 2006, 06:43 GMT
well, i , as a developer of this patch want to say that this solution is badly designed, badly coded, and with current rockboys sources is completely obsolete.
Comment by Travis Tooke (tdtooke) - Saturday, 21 October 2006, 07:11 GMT
I have now had success with this patch with the source from 2006-05-03. I didn't realize that if I got the dying gasps message from CVS then I didn't complete everything. Many thanks!

Anton could you update this patch for SVN please cheers
Comment by Anton Romanov (theli) - Monday, 29 January 2007, 07:00 GMT
that's not usable with the svn code and should be closed as "deprecated" or "obsolete" and should be closed.
anyway that was a bad solution
Comment by Lorenz Drescher (RichterSkala) - Monday, 05 March 2007, 11:24 GMT
Anyways, I took the old patch and adapted the code to a new version (so mostly no work done by me). The patch is synced with Build r12622. It's working fine for me, though it sometimes crashes and then reboots...
Comment by Serge Schneider (Schneider) - Thursday, 05 June 2008, 13:10 GMT
updated for r17590m ... seems to work.
