Someone should arrange a gp2x gathering in the UK, then people from all over the world would show up for this friendly community and mudfights. B)
Hope everyone gets their units and the sdk will be released soon, maybe that will cool things down.

received mine today thanks GP2X is a great machine I'm very happy with it not fussed about having a CD or not as I have 2.2 meg broardband so I can download all the stuff in no time anyway,

But there was no receipt for the units was there ment to be one? :huh: I got one with the GameKing 2 and GP32's.

Thanks craig for the great service you've provided us some people are never happy with anything. :D

Argggh I hate everyone ! - My GP2X has NO tv out cable and DVD converter and Hard Disk add on and Virtual Keyboard - I have been ripped off !
And the GP2X has formatted my Pc's hard disk !

Anyway enough of stupid childish ranting - theres been enuff of that in this
forum on both side. All I can say is thanks to Craig and all at GBAX for
doing their best to get these slinky black treasures delivered to us !
(not sucking up - just happy with the service)

The AS case is fine and my GP32 is now wrapped up in it , but I'd like to get a
matching GP2x one when they are available - and the next race is on
to get a TV-OUT cable - complete with more arguments on the forum I guess..

Sorry to hear that some of you guys are gonna get their GP2X deliveries delayed
coz of the CD addition - but believe me - it's worth the wait !

Am I the only one with lines going across the screen where there are big contrast changes like white video loading on black screen. It makes lines appear sideways at the top and the bottom of the loading image. I dont mean the vertical line down the middle which shouldve been fixed in the newest fw which I have too anyway
So is no one elsehaving this problem? Can it be fixed with a firmware update?

I'll see if night of the living dead will play as it is.

And i've told you, not happy return the unit, refund, can't say better than that can I? Tell me what I can do to make it all better.

-Craig

As I said in my earlier post: -
"it would have kept people a little more settled if we knew what to expect insted of guessing."

I think you will find people just want thier Gpx2, if you had just put on your web page or in the forum earlier that you were not going to ship the CD because its pointless and not the headphones for what ever reason, (who has'nt got a pair of headphones lying around) then I am sure no one would care.

Its all about expectations, I use to work as a chef, we served an amazing chocolate desert that everyone loved, one day we had someone conplain that when they had it before it had a fresh mint leaf on. Now I wanted to ram the f**king mint leaf down his neck.

The idea of the lolly was a perfect example of providing above peoples expectations, no one realy cares about a free lolly its the fact that they did not expect it.

Mine arrived today. I was a little unsure whether it would actually reach me, as I ordered it whilst extremely drunk on a business trip in Germany :D It turned up at my parents' house though.

The system itself is very impressive. It doesn't work properly with most of my divxs or xvids, but I've only tried ones that were encoded for my Zodiac. Whilst I'm comparing it to the Zod, the MP3 player is a lot better and the stick and buttons feel much more responsive. So far I've only played Quake, but it is superb!

I haven't had any problems with the stick. I haven't tried to use the USB cable since I've got a card-reader (and I'm using a Mac anyway) so I can't really comment on that. The screen does seem to be a little wavy at times, but it's nothing too drastic.

My only gripe is the dust I've managed to get caught between the screen protector and screen. Anybody know how to get it off again? :blink:

I'm certainly not regretting buying this little beauty. A big thank you to Craig and GPH and anyone else involved with bringing it out!

Well, I'm in the running for a system but I'm second batch, so I don't know/doubt I'll get freebies. Thus, my opinions:

Headphones: don't really care; I have nice Panasonic HJE50s and some low-end Sennheiser circumaurals. The biggest good bit about GPH headphones was the logo they'd have on them.

CD: Really don't care.

Case: Want this badly, don't fault Craig for skipping it if he runs out. That said, haven't seen anyone say they don't have one, but just in case...

psj3809: I will take your case. Where do you live, and would you like me to pay shipping or something?

If I cannot get your case, psj, I will gladly take the one RatX has. I'm not looking to throw a ton of money at this, but from what little I know of Astonishia Story I think it would be very nice and entertaining to have an Engrish GP2X case.

And, please, no more flames and no more posts saying no more flames. I think most of you are over it, now stop getting in last words. Either way what's done is done.

I am not taking any sides but I can't believe all the whining around here ;)

Craigix: Instead of the lolly that GPH sent out, maybe you should include some cheese. Cheese goes good with whine. Maybe that would make the whiners happy :p

As for me I just hope the unit works has a good screen with no bad pixels. If my unit isn't duff then I am happy.

Please excuse the double-post: I wanted to ask for user pictures of headphones/case/ International units (though it seems they are no different).

Also, the link below has pictures of the case in a GP32 package that I imagine has ceased to exist.

It's funny that you should ask about this pack.

I saw one tonight on sale on Ebay, apparently the GP32 included is a black one as well making it even rarer. It will be a Non-Lit Unit as well. It still has the original firmware on it and apparently overclocks to 200mhz! :ph34r: And I just bought a 166mhz BLU+ to replace my damaged FLU.

The item number is 8232501314 and he wants 250 Euro's (about £170.00) not including the shipping so I'll be overlooking this one. Ends in 20 hours. B)

Are you using an AC adapter or batteries? If its a crappy adapter it produce weird interference on some screens and speakers (not nessacelery the GP2X !! it can do it to anything please don't quote this 'Yet Another GP2X Bug'™)

NeoStuey: Thanks for the heads-up. If I had an infinite sum of money I'd smack a large bid on that right now, but I think that 250 Euro is a bit of a stretch. More's the pity.
