Yes internally, I have tried not synonymous.
Can you mail me the games? Maybe they will at least go then.

Adding ROM's to the console
Any new developments on this console?
I'm still trying to add ROM's to work. Mame emulator does not work, but also GBA, other .nes and .sms files seem to be unable to load too.
I bought this console because I would love to play Wonderboy (every version) on it. So far, no luck. But I will keep an eye on this forum to see progress (hopefully).

Hi guys, I just got mine for 2 weeks. All the YT reviews i saw was with the bubble interface and mine came with the PSP-ish interface which I thought was a newer version till I came across this forum. Mine came with probably 100+- games, mostly in Chinese.

Is there a way to play/place where I can download Samurai Showdown V and especially Vampire Saviour 2 without upgrading the firmware? Seems like .fba files can play fine but all the roms I found online are in a different format which doesn't play. I'm a Mac user so I won't be able to upgrade my firmware unfortunately.

And also is there a way to change the frame rate? Can't seems to find in any of the settings. I'm asking this because I was playing FF8 on it but the battle menu doesn't show. A search on the net suggests changing the frame rate thus the reason I'm asking. Any help is much appreciated.

Hey guys, wondering about adding roms to the stock firmware on this. Has anyone made a list of the usable rom types? I've read through this thread and didn't see anything outlining the specifics of adding roms to the system.

Hey there just got my x16 in and i am liking it - I have pi as well and enjoy that (3b+). While skimming the forum i updated the firmware and noticed you can change the quick launch buttons. Is there a certain way to do this ?

thanks

Hello guys,

I haven't worked on it recently, but here are my last findings :

- An SDK to a device similar to ours !
https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...nNWLWhDSHdRaEU
We learn that the system works with messages, there is a main application which acts as the launcher, it receives the messages from the applications and it is required to launch or kill applications.

- After analyzing the pinout of the SoC and the motherboard I was able to find the serial console output (TX pin). I used the SDCARD metal case a GROUND. Then I used an arduino to see the text outputted, here is the result:

Code:

We can see that most of the messages refers to the files that we can find in the SDK I found above. Having this console, we can have our first hello worlds !

Here is where TX pin can be plugged on the motherboard:
