What's involved in changing the battery?

Not needing to do this yet or anything, but how do we go about changing the battery on the Retrostone? How difficult is it? Does 8bitcraft sell the battery used? Are there any alternatives?

Re: Retrostone 2 is coming soon

I'm one of the people who is really happy with my Retrostone 1. I even like the analogue screen as it reminds me of the TVs I used in the 80s. That said, I wouldn't mind a digital screen version, as I could probably just use retroarch filters to achieve some of the same 80s quality. What I'm really ...

Re: Themes?

The Freeplay theme (available in the standard ES themes menu) is also a really good fit for the Retrostone.

Re: Loading Roms and pictures

Yep. It supports the same three scrapes that regular RetroPie does. Because space tends to be an issue though, I recommend using the default scraper (found in the start menu of Emulation Station). You will need an ethernet cable plugged in (or a correctly configure wifi dongle) to use it. You will n...

Re: Connecting to Retrostone trough Ethernet in windows 10

Boot the Retrostone. Attach ethernet cable and make sure it starts blinking. In the Retropie submenu go to Show IP. On your Win10 machine open any windows explorer folder and type the IP from the RetroStone (such as 192.168.1.xxx) Enter the username pi and the password pi. You should now be in for t...

ColecoVision?

I received my RetroStone yesterday, and a few quirks* aside I'm really loving it. For those in the know, how do you get ColecoVision games to work on it? I can get them working fine on a RaspberriPi, and figured it would be a similar process [Coleco folder in Machines, COLECO.ROM bios, database fold...

@Dahak We have delayed shipping to fix this issue. We are reworking all the remaining PCB. Sorry for the delay!

Re: RetroStone boot problem identified

I ordered a Retrostone on September 28th, and haven't received word that I made it through the waitlist yet. Does that mean mine will have the problem corrected when it does ship?
