But I am glad you do not condone them, so lets move on from that now, I know you have a huge amount of work to do with this, but may I ask what is being done to the actual machine itself, which has some serious problems, the headphone bug, and the lack of a proper volume control, I mean seriously how does a hand held console get released without one, also units with dead pixels, and some games not playing properly, or with features missing, like Doom's inability to change weapons, I would personally not consider a machine with build and software problems.
And what is the idea behind Dosbox, is it a way to simply get some shareware programs onto the machine, to add content that does not need to be licensed?
I think you taking over the GG forum would be a great idea, you have provided more feedback from the company in one day, than Xploderadmin has done in months, but to just have a stickied thread here would be more than sufficient, what if every hardware manufacturer were to have their own section, no thanks.
The only activity on the GG forum is to add pointless and irrelevant 'news' stories, dragged off other sites, if half as much effort had been employed by them in keeping the customers informed of progress, then far less disdain would have been directed at them.
Good luck with the Game Gadget Andy, I think you have a Herculean task ahead of you.
Which headphone bug are you referring to? I am aware of 2, one has been fixed.
The volume control will be fixed with an in game menu - an "overall" menu that can be pulled up. I do not have a time scale on this though.
Any user with a dead pixel is obviously entitled to either an exchange or refund.
The Doom situation is a little bigger - I don't have an answer for this right now, or a potential solution. It isn't a high priority at the moment (things like audio bugs are for example). So I wouldn't expect a solution in the short term.
DosBox is for both - shareware and potential PC titles.
Regarding the GG forum - thank you.
The "news" is an RSS feed - so no "effort" is required.
Hopefully I can turn this around - even if it is just communicating better, what is happening.
