They look awesome on the big screen, even without CRT filter.

 

Mario Kart at 60HZ is a revelation. All the muscle memory of the tracks is gone just because of the extra speed. It's like a new game to learn...

 

Contra is still rock hard!

I bought one yesterday on Amazon Prime Now, just on the spur of the moment, and got it by lunch time.

It's a fun little thing to have sitting under the tv, and play around with. Apparently the internals are near identical to the NES classic, so I expect people will br able to hack it and add extra games pretty soon.

Well both Argos and ShopTo delivered! It's a lovely bit of kit actually. Very impressed.

Hey, you can put nearly any game on it now!

Super easy.

 

Bad news for Smurph: Unirally doesn't work properly. I think you can just stick RetroArch on it for problem games though you won't have the swanky savestate interface. https://github.com/C...clover/releases

I did mine last night. Less than 10 minutes and I was up and running :)

 

I panicked a bit when I was flashing as it took over twice as long to flash the kernel as it did to dump it!

 

Put 20 odd games on there to try. Used the list to make sure they were all working roms before going ahead.

 

Will be taking Doom off next time I hook it up. I put it on as I'd never played the SNES version. Back in the day I'm sure it was a technical marvel. Now it's a choppy blurry mess.

Retroarch works a treat for games that aren't compatible. Pretty seamless too, initial load of games that use it is a little longer and so is resetting, but it still supports savestates etc.

 

I got the fan translation of Fire Emblem 4 working on it yesterday.

 

If you didn't know already, Hakchi also adds a shortcut for getting back to the menu without hitting reset, it's Down+Select.

I knew about L R SELECT and START to reset. Didn't know about the other.

 

I'll look at adding RetroArch at some point. More than enough to be getting on with though :)

What is the point in buying one of these and hacking it instead of a Pi? Surely cheaper and easier?

For the look of it and the classic controllers, really.

I love how the same people who (not here necessarily before anyone gets defensive) laud the Switch for its portability have shelled out 80 odd quid for a TV box that does what a basic android phone and an 8bitdo pad does portable and with screen share on most TV's ;)

Not on my TV! And I don't have Android. Doubt I'll hack it though, quite happy with it as is.

Pretty bored of it now though!

1 it looks cool.

 

2 Proper SNES controllers, I have a 3rd party USB SNES pad and it doesn't feel quite right.

 

3 To add the games that probably should have been on there anyway. We all know Mario All Stars should have been there but wasn't because they want you to buy a NES mini.

 

4 Because I can

 

5 It's easy to revert

 

6 Why not do it.

Then hack it and out more games on it. I was playing Mario 3 and WWF Royal Rumble last night :)

Been playing Super Pinch out. Fuck me it's hard! If Inwas 11 again with 8 games to my name then I might be inclined to spend hours learning the opponents. Not sure if I've got the patience for it anymore though!
