    The "Arcade" L:egends Flashback with 50 games is identical to the more common version. Its just a different shell. everthing works the same.

    You cannot add box art toroms in the "game" folder. only the "rom" folder.

    check and make sure you have the proper firmware and scripts.

    I'm looking at the V2.8.4 instructions and the first step says copy retroplayer.ini... There is no file. Do I use the file from 2.6 download?

    Ummm... I guess, it worked.

    I was like, "what in the world is OVERLOCK?" It is overclock... BTW has anyone checked the CPU temps? Because these have no heatsinks at all.

    Well, I grabbed a SMS ROM to test, Wonder Boy In Monster Land... it loads but unplayable. The boy is stuck and falls through the screen! Not a great start.

    Another weird thing about this game box, the power button is a physical on/off button. That means there is no proper software shutdown. Possible corruption issue? I already corrupted my SD card playing with this firmware for 30 mins.

    Hey, I found out that the ROMS you copy to the GAME folder are not sorted alphabetically. They are sorted in the order that they are copied. Windows File Explorer is not good at copying file in exact order. I used an Android TV box with ES File Explorer to copy MD ROMS and they all turned out in order. Then I copied some NES ROMS and they all show up in order AFTER all of the MD ROMS.

    I haven't looked at this CFW in a while but you can use the same retroplayer from 2.6 or not use any retroplayer as the settings are stored in a read-only file in the emulator partition.

    It's overclock... a typo... I've never checked the temps (connecting this device over UART is terrible) but it doesn't create a lot of heat and I used some very conservative values (if I recall it was 1.1GHz or 1.3GHz, this CPU can work in theory at 1.5GHz)

    This issue with Wonder Boy in Monster Land is the same issue a 'real' Genesis has when loading this game with a Genesis controller. There is a setting in genesisplus-gx to choose the controller type but I'm pretty sure it's global.

    And yes, if you moved the partitions to the SD Card, it might corrupt at some point. The original firmware is still available in the AtGames website and you can always re-apply it if the CFW doesn't work for you, this CFW is just a hack to try to make this device more useful. The overclock is also reversible. This thread have some great information if you want to open the img file to improve or customize it.

    Thanks. CFW is a big improvement. You should do a max 1.5Ghz overclock update for people who want to push it. I took it apart and the CPU didn't seem too warm actually. Plus I can stick on a heatsink, no problem about that. Weird about that Wonderboy IML SMS bug, you'd think all the emulator codes would have patched that issue ages ago. It was literally the first ROM I tried.

    How do we know that the V2.8.4 overclock is actually in effect? I can't find any difference in performance. I also tested the temperature between OFW and CFW and the CFW was actually one degree cooler. Basically nil, margin of error. What I did was run GnG on demo for 25 minutes with each FW, with the cover off, and check the APU with an IR thermometer. If it was overclocked then it should have been a little bit warmer. It runs very cool for a ARM APU with no heatsink, 37C vs 36C.

    over at AA Forum they have got a sort of folder system working for the AFBX, I'm guessing it will work on this system as well and i have built packs for most of the classic systems already.

    Is that something you guys want to do here? Is anyone still messing with the LFB?

    How do you insert coins for separate players?
    For instance, when playing King of the dragons, I can't insert coin in P2 slot.
    same Quartet2.
    Does the genesis multi tap work for 4 player games on this?
    Its there a way to get the select button working for Snes games. I have seen a snes to genisis port converter. But I don't think the select button can be mappable.

    You CAN just rename SNES roms to .fig. I think .sfc work best.
    Mario Kart doesn't seem to wok
    Street Fighter Alphs 2 dopes not work.

    Is there a way to get save states to work with mame?
    Arcade games, is there a way to at least save the high score?

    Still playing around with my LFB. Some things I would like to see besides saves support; SD games thumbnails, swap A-B buttons for NES ROMS, a safe software shutdown option (SD card is always flagged with error because of this, I think), and also screen aspect options. People always poo poo full screen option, but if I wanted to put this box in an arcade cabinet with a 4:3 monitor the games would be super squished horizontally.

    in game reboot, restart, shutdown and folders have been implemented for the LFBs. And a bunch of other stuff. I havent messed with it too much, but I bet you can change buttons and aspect ratio now. A lot of files arent hardcoded anymore.

    No, SD game thumbs, but rrifonas has editing of main menu support. Which lets you add games with art.

    Rocketfan removed the limitation on the number of cores. You can have as many cores as you want.

    Mario Kart SNES ROM had a problem with some older emulators. Something about DSP1b SYSTEM ROM missing. Maybe this could be looked into, or patched into the CFW??

    Looking forward to more CFWs... hopefully coming soon. I don't suppose there is any possibility of enabling OTG USB devices like keyboards and gamepads? I soldered the data lines on mine and tried to see if a keyboard did anything, no luck at all.

    Also played with some MAME ROMS and a few actually keep scores; Bubbles, Journey, Joust, and Zoo Keeper.

    Legends Flashback Ultimate (Community Project) - AtGames Flashback and Portable Consoles - AtariAge Forums

    (for ALL the AtGames Legends Flashbacks. LFB 2018 - Model No. FB8650, LFB 2018 Deluxe - Model No. FB8650, LFB 2019 - Model No. FB8660 and LFB 2019 Deluxe/Special Edition - Model No. FB8660S. You MUST have Custom Firmware installed that lets you read files from the SD Card - 32GB or less.)

    This will allow you to add games with box art to the main menu. It will also allow you to sort game libraries into folders. You can now Shutdown and Reboot the system from the controller or Clear the Recently Played games list. It has a Home button that will take you back to the main menu. It allows for custom themes, music and bezels. It takes advantage of overclock custom firmware. It has been loaded with more emulator cores, and even more can be added. You can change core settings if available. You can remap your buttons. It will also allow each LFB system to run its built in games from the SD Card. You will NOT loose any games. You can remove the SD Card and your system will run stock. You CAN import your /game folder. This package makes NO internal changes to your system. This is a COMMUNITY PROJECT. Feel free to give feedback or lend a hand. You can use all or just parts of this in your own projects if you wish. Thank You to R.Rifonas for the Original CFW and RocketFan for the System Changes.
