Coolbaby X16
« on: November 01, 2018, 05:55:19 pm »
Finally I have received the new Coolbaby X16 and I tested it. These are my impressions:

-Controls are great
-Global construction looks solid and a little better than rs-97
-L and R buttons are the best part of this console.
-Performance looks a little better than rs-97
-Screens is so nice. Big (7'') and good colors for a chinese console
-Firmware is terrible

-Emulators:
GBA: all games work
NES all games work
SNES: 90% games work. Performance is better than rs-97.
CPS1: all games work
CPS2: 50% of the games work. For example the ones that work fine: Capcom Sports club, Trash Rally. Problems with emulation: Neodrift out, street Fighter Alpha 1 and 2. Don't work: Street Fighter Alpha 3

-Megadrive emulator don't work fine. console open the game but there are a lot of problems with 90% games. Performance problems.
-I tryed to open rs-97 emulators (.dge) and console don't recognize the files
-Don't open any pc engine game

*All Games Work* Seems really generalized, and unlikely.

Review up from RetroCore - looks pretty meh and will probably melt your SD card. He got Megadrive roms working though:

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qcV0F7pw9M0" target="_blank">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qcV0F7pw9M0</a>

The GBA resolution looks terrible on that screen.
Handhelds:
GPD Win, GPD XD 64gb, RS-97, RS-90, 3DS XL, DSi XL, GBA SP, GBBC Clone, Gameboy Pocket, PSP Go
PC:
Medion Erazer, Toshiba Z20t, Dell Mini 9, Psion 5MX
Tons of other old laptops and tablets.....

I have tried and the performance is great!

This console has better construction materials than rs-97 but bad optimizated software. Megadrive roms work but the sound crash in some roms and the performance is so bad.

Hi, I just registered to mention that in the XDA forums, a user (credits to GESATEC) posted a newer firmware for this device.
I have not been able to upgrade mine, unfortunately, but another user did it.
I am not a developer per se, but i hope this helps. Like others have said, the device is pretty decent (and very powerful) for
the relatively low price, so if a developer with the knowledge could improve the god awful Chinese firmware, these could become
an awesome retro device. Here is the link to the forum with the firmware:

I know the dpad is bad on the GPD XD because I own one, but that isn't even a dpad. That's 4 separate buttons.
