Great firmware, the games are running way better than before. The only thing I cant figure out is the TV output. Does this still work and how do you use it? There is an option to change between Pal and NTSC but that all I can find.

It's a bug in GMenuNx. I managed to make TV Out but it will require a few changes. Plus, i couldn't figure out how to make detect it like it did on the RS-97.
Pingflood came back so hopefully he can look into it. (He's already hard at debugging everything)

Thank you, I'm not really bothered about TV out, I was mainly just curious so see if it looked any better than the stock firmware which looked terrible on my tv. I have a 4k TV so the TV's scaling is probably at fault but it's extremely blurry and almost unplayable compared to the built in screen. I never plug composite cables into the TV so I have no idea what other devices look like on it.

It does look awful with the stock cables, especially on NTSC. PAL looks a bit better but it's still a bit rubbish. There is no way to improve the video quality through software. You could try improving the video signal with better shielded cables and/or a comb filter.

Hi gameblabla, been loving the firmware so far.  If it's possible, in addition to a Genesis emu, would it be possible to add one for PC-Engine, NeoGeo Pocket, and some Atari's (preferably 2600, 7800, and the 8-bit computers.)  I know the DGEs are out there, I just don't know how hard it is to integrate them into the firmware.  Would really appreciate it.  Thanks so much.

 Just registered to thank you gameblabla great work with the firmware, i can`t wait for the new version, i totally agree with procyon, it would be great to have an atari 2k6 emulator in the new firmware.

 Thank you very much.

I tried to run Pymenu and its working after add to /mnt/int_sd, but seems like the image is scaled for 320x240 image.

I?m put a usb keyboard on the device and its works!!!

@gameblabla

It is possible start a bash terminal for simplify launch commands?

How did you manage this? I can't get it working at all..

EDIT: Nevermind I got it working!

here:
I was able to fix the bugs in PyMenu and it "should" now work on the Arcade Mini using the fw from gameblabla.

I used a the patched firmware of his on my K3P and its working there as well. On the K3P, we have this stupid volume buttons which are not yet supported. (I guess the Arcade Mini has a volume wheel like the RS97?)

in the file config/config.json set:
Code: [Select]
RS97 = false
screenWidth = 480
screenHeight = 272

The configuration is still not modified for gameblablas fw, so you will see a lot of entries which may be not working until properly configured.

The background images are made for the RS97 and streched for the K3P and the Arcade Mini, thats why they look so pixelated.

@LBL Gamer problem with the software for the A320 is that its quite old. We want all the new stuff gameblabla ported for the RS97 on the K3P and not use tricks to get old software running. We are not far from a fw with the same functions as the arcade mini!
