Is the ips display better then on q9? Do colors pop more? Is max brightness more bright then on q9? :-)

I must admit I was turned off when I found out this didn't have clickable sticks.  For FPS games , that's vital.

But I'm glad to see its looking good in what it is.

It has separate l3 and r3, and you can alwayw reverse these via easy softmodding so you can ish the button and its stick at the same time :-)

I know it does, totally not the same as having clickable sticks though.  It's a vast difference having to take your thumb of the stick to press a seperate button.

Uhm, if you switch them, you dont have too! You can then keep thumb on left stick and push l3 at the same time and vice versa :-)


Sorry what your saying isn't coming across clear.  Are you saying the l3 and r3 buttons can be switched to the rear corner trigger buttons which you can access with your fingers while keeping your thumbs on both sticks?

I meant l3 becomes r3 and vice versa, but that should be passabel too! Hell from what i heard youshould be able to change a config sowhere to even make the volume buttons l3 and r3 or the android navigation buttons if you would want...

The l3 and r3 swap wouldn't help as I explained earlier, ie you need to keep both thumbs on the sticks in a FPS. 

But if you can swap the triggers or otherwise for r3 as I queried , then that would be good. Not as good as clickable sticks , but going some way to being a workable solution

AFAIK,you can swap anything around in the josystick driver in any way you want. I believe skelton might know more/how to do it? :-)

A change in buttons can be done in theory via kernel, but not necessary, because it can be also done with Tincore keymapper.

Will appreciate if you can do more PPSSPP videos, primarily looking at the XD to play my old PSP games.

Thank you!!!

You shouldn't have accepted it until you had clarified this with GPD, or opened a Paypal case. I believe not even Paypal will protect you for that loss now. I have used Paypal to get a refund from a scam and got them to pay for the shipping of the faulty Q9. It only takes time, they pay, but you have to have a clear case as per their rules.

nielo360, can you try latest Retroarch from play store and tell me if controls are autodetected? I know XD uses a different joystick driver than q9 (xbox driver vs ps3 driver in q9), so not sure if new Retroarch can detect controls properly. Thanks.

Seeing the video it seems you thnk device is running at 1,2 ghz. If you can set 1,4 in setcpu then it's 1,4, but RK3288 has some temperature controls so that CPU can go down to 1,2 or even 1,0 after reaching a certain temperature. Most probably can be changed like in q9 and get 1,8 ghz, but it would require that GPD make free kernel source.

Also, another question. Can you swap  internal and external memories like in q9 or is the memory unified with datamedia layout?

All in all, thanks for the video. Seems a nice device certainly.

Ill check up retroarch now.

The reason I felt it was running at below 1.4 is due to slightly slower psp emulation and the lack of any warmth on the system despite set cpu showing it as 1.4ghz (q9 does get a bit warm as any normal device at 1.4 but this does not)

This does not have the swap storage option as far as I see(the q9 has it under storage option which is missing in the xd)

retroarch does not work properly with the xd, You can launch retroarch but cant tap or click on anything you can only scroll down and up by hand.  Retroarch has become extremely buggy even on the shield portable.

Umm I see. Probably must be mapped manually. In q9 it works like a charm with the fake playtation3 name. I will talk with GPD devs to see if they can change it, because Retroarch is my favourite emu frontend.

Strange that they included datamedia this time instead of the option of swapping memories.

Also, something I forgot, is refresh rate 60 hz? That is essential also to me.

the bug is actually with retroarch it refuses to even show onscreen controls unfortunately.

Refresh rate is 60. It was the first thing I checked:)

the swap memory may have been excluded in preparation for lollipop I assume.
