    What is the best chinese Retro handheld gaming system for 2019?

    it is the retrogame, they're just calling it k101 pro. you can get them from aliexpress for $20 less than that. the firmware is available on the dingoonity boards, the version that funnyplaying are shipping it with is very old now.

    Hardware GBA Backlight! (AGB-001)

    yeah the 32pin boards aren't as common. in the UK maybe 1 in 5 or 1 in 6 that i buy is a 32pin board. and you're right, those modifications aren't needed on the 32pin boards, only the DA1 mod.

    Hardware GBA Backlight! (AGB-001)

    ghosting can't usually be solved using the potentiometer. ghosting occurs on 40pin boards and it requires de-soldering of some components to make it work correctly.

    Hacking accidentally updated to 1.4.5E, m3i zero no longer works

    Hi, I received this card below. http://www.nds-card.com/ProShow.asp?ProID=149 Straight out of the box it doesn't work, so I guess I need to put Wood R4 on it or something? Can anyone help me out? It does show the cart as some Konami Digital Entertainment game on the DSi menu, but when i load...

    Hacking accidentally updated to 1.4.5E, m3i zero no longer works

    Hacking Gateway 3DS - First 3DS Flashcart

    I can't find them on your site, so I assume you've removed them. Good move. If what was said about you selling preloaded cards with a mark up is true, that's profiting from piracy. Whilst it's obvious what people mostly buy these carts and cards for, the customer is not profiting from games that...

    Gaming Question re: region locking

    Hi I would really like to buy the Korg DS10 plus software for my DSi or DSi XL, but it wasn't released in Europe. Am I to understand that the extra 4 synths (ie the DSi content) won't work on either console? If that's the case, does anyone want to sell me a USA DSi or DSi XL? :lol:

    Gaming K1GBA team doesn't even know GBA original resolution!

    It doesn't, it's 320x240 They're not the manufacturer, they're the distributor. They can't be expected to know the details of all the hardware, or indeed the hardware of the original GBA. It could be that you just misinterpreted what they wrote, English is not their first language. Cut them...

    Gaming A Game Boy Advance 1:1 clone with extras.

    Probably because of the cost. Using a 1:1 GBA SP shell is cheap, they're already in heavy production and cost less than $1 per piece. Once you start modifying the casing to incorporate different connectors then you drive the cost up dramatically. The case they chose for the K101 is probably...

    Gaming K1GBA team doesn't even know GBA original resolution!

    Firstly, the K1 does not have have a resolution of 640x480, it is 320x240. Secondly, K1GBA are official distributors of the K1 and K101 - they are not involved with manufacture and are not expected to know every last detail of its hardware or the hardware of the original GBA. It is quite...

    Gaming It's competition time again - 2 chances to win a K101!

    Right, I get the impression that they're more interested in a name that promotes the resurgence of a scene than just a variation of the GBA initials or Game Boy Advance name. Maybe I'm wrong, but that's the impression I get when talking with them.

    Gaming It's competition time again - 2 chances to win a K101!

    Good man! Haha, it wouldn't surprise me to see any of those on some random Chinese handheld tbh! Nope, but don't drown your great name by surrounding it with mediocre ones else they might miss it ;-)

    K1 GBA SP - First Hands-on Impressions

    K-Team implemented a rather nice scaling engine that improves the upscaled image significantly compared to emulators like those found on the caanoo and dingoo.
