AtGames Sega Genesis Flashback (2017) help

I don't know if this has been posted in the past as I haven't found anything on it. I recently purchased a 2017 Genesis Flashback and after following a video on YouTube was able to get it to load more ROMS onto it. Following the process of using ADB to backup the so it could be edited for the new games, I got curious if I could backup the entire directory. I know someone has created a custom firmware for the 2018 and 2019 versions, and I don't know if this was part of that process or not. I have included a screenshot of the directories found under /system on the flashback. I am wondering if the .apk files found in the apps directory (, Genesis-082917.apk, and MasterSystem-082817.apk) could be customized further. Like adding categories to it to organize the games better, or maybe working on the emulation so it runs the games that have issues. Unfortunately while I'm good at tinkering at things, programming and understanding how the files actually work is not my expertise.

    @Psionic Roshambo, The Wii U gamepads are tied to the console's region, so its impossible to find a cheap gamepad that supports your model.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Unless you modify your system, of course, and remove the region check.

    @Xdqwerty I like how the game had the middle ages 1000AD, the dark ages 600AD.It was great seeing the post robot apocalypse 2300 like Terminator and enter the matrix. some of mad max and fallout. 2300ad though it could had used more elements instead of just a generic ai uprising. It was a great idea for their judgement day to be 1999 Y2K.

    -great additions if they would have made an expansion or dlc in my opinion would be finding out humans trapped in a matrix -

    a follower having a cyborg character living tissue over metal endoskelleton like terminator, and the synths from fallout

    4After Zeal fell it would have been good to see more ancient eras. Perhaps Sumeria based in one area, then Egypt based in another area, Greek based in another area, then roman based in another area before the middle ages.---------

    ----between 1000ad and 1999 is a big gap they should have had the age of revolution like the american and French Revolution

    then the cowboyy era in one area of map and the Industrial revolution/age of enlightmentthen a ww1 and ww2 and a cold war era
  • S @ salazarcosplay:
