Re: Retrostone 2 is coming soon

My understanding is that hardware acceleration will be part of the new SOC, something that the old SOC was lacking because of proprietary blobs. So even if it's 'slower' than the original Retrostone, the new hardware will actually likely be faster for most things. Proper hardware acceleration will ...

Voice your disapproval with your wallets! Don't buy!
I'm holding off. If the emulation is good then I may buy, but having played with a the Pi4 and RetroPie, there's no way the RS2 will match it.

There's a few of us have been begging for this since the RS2 was announced, but he's going with the same stumpy dimensions as the RS1 unfortunately :( If the case was th...

Re: Retrostone 2 is coming soon

Or he could make the RS2 an upgrade from the first model. Honestly, all the issues associated with this device, I don't know how you people still support development. Just get a Bittboy PocketGo and be satisfied. I love my Retrostone. I don't have any real 'issues' with it, beyond a small spot on t...

Re: Retrostone 2 is coming soon

Would it be possible to get the case lengthened at the bottom by about another 1 inch? The current one is a little 'short' and the Retrostone 2 appears to have the same dimensions. Even if it's empty space inside (which could give room for any additional mods users might want to add!) the slight ad...

Re: FFVII

What format are your FFVII images in? Usually you'll want ISO or PBP format.

Re: WIP - Opendingux-like CFW for the Retrostone

Headphone is a hardware issue. You can fix it yourself with a blob of solder - just search around these forums for the solution.

Re: Retrostone 2 is coming soon

If this comes out in a non-GameBoy DMG form, I ain't upgrading, simple as. The form factor was what attracted me to it in the first place, as opposed to its predecessor which is... more horizontal, kinda.

Re: Display updates Retrostone

Cool, can you give any details on what's going to be changed this time around? Personally, I'd like any of the following to be addressed: 1. Screen. Abandon that composite internal output so we can read the damned fonts. Use a better screen with a wider viewing angle vertically. Higher resolution so...
