Commercial DS developers can only use the ARM9. They are forced to use an ARM7 binary created by Nintendo that handles audio, input, networking, etc to ensure compatibility with the Nintendo WFC. So the 33 MHz ARM7 can't really be taken into account when comparing power.
Don't worry, we will give it a fair review. I have owned a GP32, as has one of the other staff members, so we understand how different it is, but it would be good for our readers to see that the world doesn't only contain Sony or Nintendo handhelds, and the easiest way for them to understand is...
I just thought members here might be interested to know that ByteSizedGaming.com, a mainstream gaming news site is expanding to cover the GP2X as well. We started off as GBA Central, then DS Central, and now we're relaunching as ByteSized Gaming, and are expanding coverage from just Nintendo...
I know the phone number is right, I got it from Google's cached version of one of his pages:
Too bad it isn't connected anymore
And I already tried with the White Pages online: There are about 5 people named D J Evans (doesn't let...
Here's his Australian phone number:
That's the best I could do :)
EDIT: In case Derek's number has changed, try contacting Torlus - he helped with the Yeti3D engine (his name is on some of the screenshots): firstname.lastname@example.org
He's also a member of these forums, under the name Torlus.
The 'Final Fantasy' graphics you speak of was likely just the video of the Final Fantasy trailer playing on a GP2X. Even the Xbox 360 and PS3 would struggle to reach that level. If the GP2X could render like that in realtime, it would cost even more than a top-of-the-line laptop.
I just thought I should update people on the situation:
I'm not sure how soon I will be able to afford a GP2X (university costs a lot!). So don't be surprised if it isn't available as soon as the GP2X is.
I'm definitely not wanting donations, though. I don't think too highly of devs who ask...
I heard that some kind of adapter was needed for TV Out on the GP2X. Are they just talking about a cable? If so, what kind of cable? Is it just a 3.5mm Stereo > 2xRCA cable like some digital cameras use?
