    did you get the drivers to work on your pc? and also have you had a chance to try my dash yet?


    @Hekel at the moment adding a file manager, that works well with the wireless controller is in my plans. that way we dont have to be plugging a mouse or keyboard to use android file managers.

    my focus is and was to make a lightweight dashboard( i know its a launcher but Dashboard is a term i cant get out of my head) that would offer a much easier way to launch your own games without all the ini editing, but one that can also launch other homebrew and apps made for the console(if you noticed, you can launch retroarch or any other apk from my dash through the app drawer if you have installed it as a separate apk) eventually if someone makes alternative emulators, homebrew apps and other utilities, i would like to add interoperability between my launcher and theirs.
    i guess i would like it to be an dash that offers utility.

    oh you may have missed it. you no longer need a hub to install the dash, its a single click installer now. just put the contents in the same folder as your ADB executable. the rest is automatic. double click and done.
    ill pm you in a minute.

    uninstall with the script, reinstall with the script.

    A "is accept"
    B "is back out"

    you should not be seeing that prompt asking you to set one of them as default anymore. or atleast dont press any buttons on that prompt. the script is will take care of that part for you.
    uninstall with the batch file then reinstall. after you do that. reboot your device. that is not a prompt from my app but from the android OS. the controller will not work at that prompt. the script to install may not have run all the way. you should be able to launch the atgames dash from the drawer by pressing A.

    If it is not an ssd you can have data corruption problem with the simple 1-wire mod; if it is ssd there should be not big problems but i think 2tb it is not ssd.

    Anyway thanks for testing !

    Any chance you can pm me the german version of the ATgamesmenu ?

    Allright im back after some sleep :-D, now i feel like reborn haha!

    @WD_Gaster this Sounds very nice!! If you like to add parameters for emulators/apps i can provide them. I dont know how far youre coding skills reaching but it would be amazing if you could select from a bunch of execute parameter for each section (Game Gear, Mega Drive etc.) This would open the possibility to have absolute controll of the emulator/game choice. You could even launch specific games with specific emulators to avoid emulations limitations and other problems.

    Well if the installation failed this might be happen cause you klicked on the joypad while it was working. I had 2x the problem the script was too fast cause my mega drive not even had boot fully at the moment. Maybe we should increase the waiting time.. but mostly it worked.. dont know.

    If you like i can make a costum skin for youre dashboard (still loving it) im pretty skilled with Photoshop :-P.

    So Start to share some stuff with you. I will Launch a Project which i call:

    THE SEGA MEGA DRIVE, GENESIS FLASHBACK HD: WORKBENCH

    This will be a Serie of Tools we generated and shared. I recommend to not Change the Folder Structur cause with every release i make you simple have to replace the files inside the Folder. At the end we will have a big Tool Workbench :-)

    And here is my first Release! A Dashboard installer for everyone (APKS NOT INCLUDED, Just follow the instructions):

    Do you still have installed the original Dashboard or did you reflashed it once? If you never made anything on it i can send you a tool to Dump it.

    Perfectly Done, i checked youre DASHBOARD ist the same FILENAME but the source is different! I Cant say what the difference is yet but as i expected everyone should dump theyre DASHBOARDS. For this download the file i provided in the early post. You will find a E-Mail to contact me if there is any interests from youre side that i check the file for differences.

    @thx1138 i will check for youre Problem with the SEGA GENERATIONS Dashboard now. Give me some time to check the Problem.
