Re: Useless CFW for the Retrostone (1)

Hi, Atari Jaguar didn't work. Do I need a Bios? File Extension .jag? Thank You! Stefan Not all games will work (Raiden and the likes). Also only no intro roms will work and yes, use the jag extension. @gameblabla you mentioned a guide how to generate opk package for other emulators. Cheers Now you ...

Re: Useless CFW for the Retrostone (1)

Windows 10 since the Creator's Update should support the mounting of removable media with multiple partitions so it sounds like you're using a release of Windows 10 prior to that. The trick that you used here also works for Windows 7 but it's still not as ideal. I hope i can look into adding support...

Re: Useless CFW for the Retrostone (1)

- The Fceux emulator runs to slow at my Retrostone. (At version 0.1 the emulator was to fast.) How to change it? I'm a bit surprised to hear this as it should be running at the correct speed. Make sure the PAL setting is not being turned on on NTSC games and that the sound frequency is being set to...

Re: Useless CFW for the Retrostone (1)

I didn't see it, but how fast does it boot to the menu from when it's powered on? Takes around 13 seconds the moment you power it on to getting to Gmenu2x. I've recorded a short video of it booting here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VCOK3-gZlsA Great work! Thank You! I love the GMenu2x and the ...

I would suggest you upgrade to it and make a copy of your ...

Useless CFW for the Retrostone (1)

Hello guys, i've porting around 10 emulators or so, i've decided to release an initial build of it for the Retrostone. Why make such a CFW when you already have RetrOrangePi ? Well my Useless CFW is more suited for console use and uses GMenu2x as the GUI. Each of the emulators are tweaked and made e...

Re: Open Source VPU driver for Allwinner

We cannot use the upstream linux kernel because upstream does not support composite output, which is what the Retrostone uses. That also means there's no way of using the open source GPU drivers as well as Cedrus, which is responsible for hardware decoding of videos. Retrostone 2 though... Well as s...

Re: PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENT: TESTERS NEEDED! (was: UNIX sysadmin observations)

Agreed on the downside of disabling udev, you'll see that I noted the controller issue. Actually, disabling udev causes far more problems than with the external controllers. Udev changes the permissions on the frame buffer device (which is required for the GUI to work) and it adjusts ownerships and...

Re: WIP - Opendingux-like CFW for the Retrostone

https://gameblabla.nl/img/retrostone.jpg Alright, so i've ported and worked on a couple more emulators. NGPCEmu is basically my own fork of libretro's beetle neopop, itself based on Mednafen Neopop. It took me like 3 days to have something put together but it works pretty good on the Retrostone and...
