Spare parts and accessories

Hi all, since the retrostone can be moded with more buttons and analog stick, why not make a production of inject molded modified front cases and put them on sale on 8bcradt website.

Re: CPS 1,2,3 for RetroStone?

yes works without problems I still didnt manage how to make it work. I placed the games in the respective folder, but it wont start. In the ES menu, the game names show blue, no emulation recognized and they wont start. I even changed the roms to the mame2003 folder, but nothing. Edit: all working.

So 148€ for the item, 12€ postage and now 70€ for taxes and package handling through the customs process. 230€ is way too much and I'm ...

Re: Shipping from outside Europe?
