    You need to create custom controller configuration for each game using START+Left. I'm not sure if they persist for games on the SD Card.

    The ini file have some libretro core settings, but it's driven by a read-only file, making it almost useless.

    I was wondering if there is a custom firmware option for the new Legends Flashback Deluxe with the 110 games? This one turns the newer device into the old.

    Not at this moment, but I had the opportunity to review the update released today for the Legends FB 2019, and it's basically the same device as the 2018, but with larger emulator and rom partitions.

    I didn't have time to look closely at the menu executable (this is where the custom firmware does its magic), but it seems to have less room for customization. It has an entry for a Stella core which is not included anywhere, so there would be only 1 slot available for a custom core - this core could be MAME 2000. I've seen an entry for FBA, but the core is not included and the image and the I think it only can be called adding the games directly in all-games.ini (the game list).

    There are firmware updates available for the 2019 Legends Flashback on the AtGames Website, posted yesterday.

    I have the impression they had some problems with FBA as it was removed from both Legends Flashback (2018 and 2019). Just looking at the files, this update has few differences from 2.6:
    • Retroplayer, retroplayer_ro.ini and retromenu were updated -> I don't know if they have improvements, but the files are newer (11-14, 11-25)
    • Mame 2003 Plus core was updated, it was likely to support Ghouls 'n' Ghosts; this is the only game that used FBA on the older version
    • FBA core was removed from rom partition and all-games.ini was updated - Ghouls 'n' Ghost is using MAME 2003 Plus now
    I will probably mod it this weekend.

    I've installed this new firmware, and it seems to fix some issues with PAL games, and maybe it also fix the audio delay.
    I think this is the same menu and emulator as the FB 2019.
    Some issues are still present, like battery backup not working for console games. Another nice addition is the support for SNES (.fig) in retromenu, I can try to add the same core present in the FB2019.

    I have the new CFW ready (now with overclock support), but need to finish a couple of things before releasing it.

    Will the CFW have rom folder/emulator folder support so we can add to the stock UI?

    Yes, and I've already added the download link in the first post.

    I got everything running on my 2018, works great! Here is Actraiser for SNES.
    Also, I picked up a standard edition 2019 at Wal-Mart for $45 tonite.

    I flashed the Atgames firmware update for the 2019. It unlocks the SD Card in the menu, but I lose the artwork thumbnails for Super Star Wars 2 and 3. Also those two games wont launch. There must be an issue wit the all games ini and entries for those titles.

    What do you do with New rom folder, certain roms go there?
    What do you do with new .SH files
    delete all .ini or keep mountini.

    FBA has coleco vision. That had an addon to run Atari 2600. Can this run .a26, .a52?

    Is FBA bette than mame? I see it has very similar romset as Mame 2000
    I still can get FBA arcade roms to launch (altered beast).

    Steps,
    I unzip
    Re zip as .7Z and put in game and run. (that not work)
    ---Do you need to delete .7z (that not work)

    The readme has instructions about the control files.
    If you want support to "rom" and "emulator" folder in the SD card, you keep the ini files. If you want to load the menu from the SD card, you use the .sh files.

    FBA only works for arcade games (the way it loads console games only works with RetroArch), and performance is crappy for anything besides older games, CPS1&2 and Neo Geo. MAME 2000 is the way to go for this device.
