GP2X UAE already ported

The GP2x isn’t even out yet and a dev who was given a dev board has already ported UAE.

http://squidgey.co.uk/

Obviously it wouldnt be playable or very good yet, but it's a start.

The same Dev has already ported Quake.

Question

Just dredging up an old post.

I'm contemplating getting one of these now rather than a DS or PSP as I don't really have any interest in playing high graphical games as they are all now 3D and more suited to being played on a desktop.

Does anyone here have a GP32 or GP2X?

I considered pre-ordering a GP2x, but decided to wait and see if they've fixed the godawful joystick first. I tried using my GP32 for the first time in ages recently, and gave up after about 10 minutes. The joyless joystick ruins the whole experience.

I've got a GP32 and pre-ordered a GP2X.

You really should fix that, not hard to do.

Mine has been perfect ever since, was a little hard to hit diagonals properly before, the GP2X will have a different joystick though.

Yeah, I did the fix. The diagonals are easier to get to, but the stick's still crap. It's too inaccurate, there's far too much travel, it feels flimsy, and who thought it'd be a good idea to stick a midget joystick on a handheld anyway? I much prefer a Nintendo-style D-pad, preferably like the original GB or NES, not the tiny D-pad on the GBA.

The GP2x does look very tempting, though.

I have a GP32 since May 2003 and when I will be able, I will buy a GP2X, the only new console that I really want.

Wandered into the local Gamestation today and had a look around the retro stuff. They've got the usual selection - A600s with keys missing for £10, brown C64-Cs for £10, a vast selection of Mega Drive sports games that no-one in their right mind would ever buy, overpriced SNES games and a selection of exotic hardware (Turbographix, Vectrex, etc) in the glass display cabinets. I nearly bought another Lynx-II, but noticed that the screen was scratched so I put it back.

Anyway, on the way out I noticed the GP32 BLU that's been sat behind the counter for a while. They'd moved it to the front of the counter and chopped a massive £90 off the price. Yep, I got me a BLU for £30. It was the last one in the shop, and it turns out that it's the one that the cashiers have been playing (it was a bit grubby, but I've cleaned it up). The stick is actually OK on this model, and the screen is a huge improvement on the original GP32.

The shop assistant told me that they'd knocked all of their stock down to £30, and it had sold out in about 4 days. So, if you fancy getting a GP32 before they GP2x comes out at the end of this month, it might be worth nipping down to your local Gamestation to see if they've got any left.
