    Somewhere, over there!
    No... Sega hit up McDonald's with "mini" games long before that, if we're talking poorly made Chinese products. Even then, we're talking about things like NES Classic. Nice try, though. A for effort.

    Hey guys I was wondering.. I've got the g15 logitech and the light flickers but doesn't quite register on the system.. So I plugged it into a powered usb hub and plugged it in.

    So the save states seem to work from the keyboard but I can access anything using the esc key.. Any advice?

    It was licensed ORIGINAL lcd games, not classic reissues.
    Nice try.
    By the way, these were made in 2003, that's 5 years later than Nintendo Mini Classics Game&Watch reissues.

    Difference is that in that case, id is the original owner of the software. The GPL'ed parts are still owned by id and they as a result always have end control over it and aren't required to provide the assets (the games themselves aren't under the GPL, the source code for them is). If you're the sole developer of something you have complete control over it. I can choose to open source whatever parts I want. What I can't do is use other people's GPL code and not make my own project available under the same provisions (in practice, the GPL or AGPL). Because at that point I'm using parts of other peoples source code.

    In this case they used GPL'ed parts not owned by them (PCSX reARMed isn't owned by Sony), ergo it goes under the GPL, which by its copyleft requires that all of the final product to be under the same provisions.

    (Again, IANAL!)

    Hello everyone, just wanted to say that you can access this menu without a keyboard. :)

    Yup, with lolhack and using the right string of text in the lolhack.sh file

    According to madlittlepixel it's

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    
    #Access Esc Menu from Select + Triangle on controller
    sleep 5s
    export PCSX_ESC_KEY=2
    killall ui_menu
    sleep 5s
    cd /data/AppData/sony/pcsx
    /usr/sony/bin/ui_menu --power-off-enable
    sync

    Who knows, but it's on his latest video. The default strings don't even allow for the button combo.

    That code:

    #!/bin/sh

    #Access Esc Menu from Select + Triangle on controller by andshrew
    sleep 5s
    export PCSX_ESC_KEY=2
    killall ui_menu
    sleep 5s
    cd /data/AppData/sony/pcsx
    /usr/sony/bin/ui_menu --power-off-enable
    sync

    Doesn't work... I wonder if he copied it wrong? Anyone know the real code and if you need to add it or replace the code already in the lolhack.sh file?

    Not to mention that there is little to no security checks.

    It was shown in a video, IDK

    I'm not surprised at all, this is a garbage product.
