Excuse me.
1. I have answered ALL inquiries about writing a port for these devices as well as others to EVERYone who has bothered to email me or Post here.
2. If you think your device has such a market share then why haven't YOU or some of your buddies already written your own port or modified my code to do so.
3. As Marconelly pointed out, I don't own a Jornado of any kind and don't plan on buying one since I feel the iPaq and Casio both fit my personal usage very well.

I did indeed 'bother' to port MAME to the 'current' Jornado PocketPC. I did it 'blindly' as I don't own one myself. But it WAS done, and at the request of many (polite) Jornado users when I had the time to do it.

If you have an older model then why don't you complain to Microsoft to release a GAPI driver for your model so the current and future Versions of Software (mine and others) will work on your devices without any additional alterations. That is the part that 'is missing', and it is not something that us third part developers can release or workaround without alot of additional coding.

As I have stated in Email to may folks that have asked, I may write ports to other(older) devices only if I get time to do so. I still have items I need to clean up and work on in the versions I am already supporting at this time. So stay tuned or pick up a copy of the development kit and make your own contribution.

Good Day.




Cheers,
