    The latest firmware from AtGames enables the SD card support for ROMs! Also, the emulation seems slightly more improved. Sonic 2 is a good test for this as it pushes both sound and graphics hard. Still some distortion on the ring and high pitch sounds but overall very good. Stable frame rate too. No drops from 60fps on my unit.

    Only downside at the moment is the lack of cover art for the SD card games. I've tried various methods with no success.

    I've bought and returned 3 of these units now as each time the controllers both do nothing despite being on with the blue light. Is there some way to link the controllers to the system that I'm missing? I find it hard to believe I've gotten 3 straight defective units.

    You should prolly buy some repro genesis controllers since they'll prolly work better than the atgames controller plus its compatible with the flashback

    Thanks for the tip on repro, I’ll try them.

    Each controller I have just has an on off switch and I’ve tried both with them on.

    My 2018 version came with instructions to sync the controller: Hold A and Up for few seconds and turn the controller on. It will blink fast. Now turn the console on and the controller will be sync'd.

    can someone who has a legends flashback register and downoad the dec 20 firmware update? its supposed to actually be for the legends ultimate home arcade. it bricks the legends flashback, oddly enough, but you can fix with a downgrade.

    i'm really curious what roms are hidden in that over 100 meg update file if any.

    Hmm. this is all capcom. so this is probably not the legends ultimate, but a new capcom only device that's upcoming. I'm curious what will be done for forgotten worlds, as that game requires one spinner per player.

    The Legends Flashback already has Forgotten Worlds, and it works with a 3-button setup like all emulators... 2 buttons to rotate the weapon and one to shoot.

    so gimped to genesis version control levels. Sorry, that game really needs the spinner.

    Now what would be interesting is a twisty stick classics. with actual twisty sticks. Heavy barrel/midnight resistance/a number of snk titles. Front Line is different and would not work with a normal twisty stick.

    I'm noticing,alot of sound issues specifically in sonic where if you go too fast the music will skip anyone having this issue.

    make sure you are connecting it directly to power. if you are using the usb port of a pc it is known to have slowdowns.

    I've been playing around with the emulators for the Genesis Flashback 2018, and I was able to unlock the extensions on the SD Card and give an alternative for Genesis Plus GX (Picodrive).

    Genesis Plus GX still the most complete emulator, and it will run Genesis (.bin/.md), Master System (.sms), Game Gear (.gg) and Sega CD games (.bin/.cue or .chd). For Sega CD support, copy the BIOS files (BIOS_CD_U.bin, BIOS_CD_J.bin and BIOS_CD_E.bin) to the same folder as the games.

    Picodrive is faster than Genesis Plus GX, and it will run Genesis, Master System and 32x games. I couldn't make it run Sega CD games, and you will lose Game Gear support. Picodrive also apparently fixes the issues with PAL games (at least Master System games run at the correct speed). To make Picodrive work with a 6-button controller, you will need to copy both .ini file to the root of you SD Card.

    Please don't expect Sega CD and 32x games running at full speed. While they work fine, you may have some sound issues when the framerate drops.
    If you don't like Picodrive, you can revert to the original emulator installing the Sega CD update.

    Update for Genesis Flashback HD (US) with Sega CD support (Genesis Plus GX)
    Update for Genesis Flashback HD (US) with 32x support (Picodrive)

    Thanks @dcuk7 for sharing a dump from the EU/UK version.

    P.S.: (1): While I did some limited test and we are not messing with the 'vital' OS parts, I can't guarantee the updates are 100% safe.

    damn man, freaking BEAST!
    great job. this is waayyyy more than what most people should have expected out of this little gadget. great work.
    also are you sure the CHD compression doesnt contribute to the jitters with sega cd games? just curious.
