GINGE Is Not GP2X Emulator


Ginge is an application that can run many GP2X F100/F200, Wiz games and programs on other ARM Linux platforms. Currently it's closed source and runs on Pandora and Wiz itself.

It is not a full hardware emulator like MAME, PicoDrive or similar, it does not emulate the CPU. It can be considered as compatibility layer similar to Wine on PC Linux, however it does emulate small portion of MMSP2 and Pollux system-on-chips. It operates by hooking certain system calls and using realtime patching of code that accesses memory mapped hardware directly.
