mystery solved.

Just imagine... it's a simple setting to fix this (Mitac can do it easily)...

you mean with a security xml update like the current unlocking (i suppose it is)?

then it would mean they really don't carry about customer support :D

but at least i learned many new things about smartphones :D

Well hot damn, that last update did the trick for me. It not only works, it works very well. I can't say as I really cared all that much about playing games on the phone but it's working and for that, a million thanks!

with updated GAPI2GDI:

- SPVMan now works perfectly!

- Picodrive doesn't work anymore

- PocketSNES laucnhes but freezes the phone when a rom is loaded

- XRally Alpha works (but the game sucks! :D)

I'm gonna try to put the dll files directly on directory.. Stay tuned...

are you sure you removed all the old wrapper's gx.dll and gxorig.dll? puting gxdma.dll to the apps directory doesn't matter anymore. the original gx.dll in windows will load and use the gxdma.dll (not the application).

I'm happy to hear that :lol:

P900?? How could you? :D Get SmartPhoneTurbo and clock your Mio8390 at 300MHz (RAM gets then clocked at 133MHz) - then show me faster Smartphone :D

Tutorial for final GAPI solution is almost ready, I'll post it in few minutes...

Don't forget to send your post to Mitac along with a few words on how much we've enjoyed their support in this matter and how soon we'll all be ready to buy another phone from them.

Meanwhile, kudos to the support here. :-)

Sorry it took so long, I had to try all games to be sure it works :D

So far ALL games and apps I tried work when properly signed :lol:

Yeti3D RULEZ :shock:

You need to see this! http://modaco.com/viewtopic.php?t=109335

Eclipse: First Wave - works great! it took me some time to test it, couldn't take my hands off my phone... :D

Thanks to Picard, the maker of BetaPlayer, who doesn't even own Mio8390, but was able to code GAPI2GDI wrapper and then make this final solution happen :D We were working on it until late night hours yesterday, but it worked :D

Now IT IS TIME TO CELEBRATE banana.gifEnjoy.

Great tho, just thinking, signing is a long process, but is there much difference having the wrapper and signing? coz all the games work fine with the wrapper, should i uninstalle the wrapper then sign all the games, will that be better?

@schriss: why don't you use html as tutorial format? there is an export function in winword (maybe it will need some manual image size adjustions)

btw my nickname is just picard, but it was not available on this site :D

Signing takes few seconds actually, after you do it 2-3 times :D

And yes, there is a difference! Duke Nukem 3D is playable after signed, with wrapper it isn't.

BetaPlayer is MUCH faster, 147% when signed, around 110% with wrapper.

See my post on first page for benchmark results.

Quake and Yeti3D didn't work for me with the wrapper.

On the other hand, Eclipse: First Wave was very playable with wrapper, so your choice :D

@Zim: i didn't tested with the final wrapper, but i think there will no speed penalty when you leave the wrapper installed and use a signed game. the wrapper will not load in this case ( @schriss could you test this? the final wrapper is different from the one a sent you last time ) so you can leave the wrapper installed, even when you sign you favourite games

Zim:

If you have the wrapper installed, you do not need to uninstall it. If your game is unsigned it will use wrapper, but will be a little slower. If not playable or doesn't work, then sign the game and it will automatically use original gx.dll.

I just tested that with Duke Nukem 3D. I have wrapper installed and exe is signed and game is playable as without wrapper (with signing only).
