Title: LBL Custom Menu for the PAPK3 Plus (4gb and 16gb)***Download Here***
Post by: LBL Gamer on August 02, 2018, 04:40:47 pm
Its v1 so there is more room to squeeze more out of it like Sega ALt emulators, MAME, PSX and whahat ever I can manage of the next weeks. For this menu please revert questions from the main PAPk3 thread so I can help keep track. Also look here for more versions. Also I'm working on transferring files directly to replace stock one as a alternative to cloning an image and much more.... Below are my links:

I need to mention that there are no roms for legal reasons. Also I did not think to zip it down and will work on that asap

Another thing that has come up is you put your rom files in the fat32 (windows) partition under their corresponding folders. SNES (super Nintendo) Sega Genesis Ect Ect...and that's for ALL emulators that are associated with ORIGNAL and ALT emulators. The NEW EMULATORS folder has roms folders in the emulators themselves. I will be posting toutorials soon on my youtube.

Hi there! I like the firmware! I have put all the roms in their corresponding folders but when I turn on the device I cant find any of them. Am I doing this right? And yes, I'm the guy that's been bugging you on youtube haha

Hello and it not bugging its feedback and questions...and I like it  ;D I don't recognize your handle, is it different on youtube? Anyway I desperately need to go ahead and do a tutorial video. I might even do it tonight. Until then try to make sure the roms are in the right folders, the alt emulators are automatically attached to the right folder (Nintendo, Super Nintendo, ect ect) the "new emulators" folder has "roms" folders in the individual emulators. Also make sure that the roms are in the right common format .gba .gb .gbc .sfc (super famicon\snes) I cant remember them all off the top of my head so tonight Ill check my theme folder and get specific with the file extentions. Hope this helps and thanks for the support

Yeah mate thanks a lot! I'm seamusmacduffy on YouTube lol. I got it all sorted. For some reason I messed around with the partitions after I burned the image to the sd. Why, you ask? I don't know, probably high. Haha thanks again and I look forward to your video tutorial video!

Hey LBL just wondering if you managed to compress your menu upload yet? I have had problems with my sd card reading. PC wants me to format disk and so I cant flash what on it now. Reason being I pushed some friends into the KP3 after they saw mine and asked if I could flash to they're pap but because the download was so big I deleted it....now my sd is unreadable to flash it and I have to start all over again. 15 gb is abit of a hassle so just thought if you had compressed it yet?

Post by: LBL Gamer on August 23, 2018, 02:48:53 pm
Got it compressed down to a 723 mb zip. I'm going to have to move some stuff around to host it because my free stuff is full (dropbox, google drive). as soon as i find another free way to share it Ill add a link.

Title: Re: LBL Custom Menu for the PAPK3 Plus ***Download Here*** Zip 723 mb Added
Post by: LBL Gamer on September 18, 2018, 07:56:13 am
So I had several people ask questions about the downloads. so to be specific,

1. the 732 mb file is the zipped down 16 gb image of my custom menu for the internal sd card.
2. you do not need both. the 16 gb was my first attempt to provide the image to the public. I then zipped it and made a second release.
3. the reason it is 16 gb is not because it has any games (I did not add games for copy right purposes) but because it is a carbon copy of the files system image and is unzipped and ready to directly add to the sd card.

Also I want to add that I have not given up on the PAP I just moved on a bit to diversify and am returning to it very shortly with plans to make it a external sd mod as well.

 THANK YOU ALL for your continued interest and support

Amazing work and thank you!

A few questions.

1.  Any way to make code so that the emulators can access roms stored on a 32gb external card rather than just on the 16gb internal card?  My 16 GB card is maxed out so any more games like MAME would need to be put on the 32 GB external card if ever you were to release a MAME emulator for it.

2. It takes about a minute and a half to read a folder that has 3000 games in it.  Understood, but is there a way to cycle through games faster like most emulators do where you press left and right on the Dpad so it brings up the next screen worth of roms without having to press down to and have to wait awhile until it gets to the desired game? This would be such a time saver!  EDIT: I see that the shoulder buttons do exactly this, well at least they do it for my NES library.  Haven't tested the others.  Nice!

3. Will MAME roms run on the NeoGeo emulator?

4. Both SNES emulators won't run Zipped games.  Neither will Game Boy Advanced.  Emultors like Colecovison run the Zipped Roms just fine.  Is there a fix for this?  Having to unzip them all and reload is going to put me over the 14 GB as I'm just at 13.5 GB worth of roms on the internal SD card.

Thanks for the complement. I looked through the emulators and I think I know the problem with it recognizing zips and Ill try to fix it on my next release. I will also have to make some more time to look into your other questions. I hope you enjoy what I've done so far and please let me know if you run across any more issues or fixes. Thanks

Hi! Is it possible to adopt your firmware for this beast?
https://boards.dingoonity.org/ingenic-jz4760-devices/meet-the-retro-mini-arcade/

It is named RS-07 and I know the hardware is almost same with PAP K3+ as well as base rom, but still there are small differences like USB ports and key layout. I've tried PAP K3+ version but without success - it won't boot. After some manipulations (with using original root FS) I was able to boot it, but there were several bugs in menu, probably because of different keymapper.

I have seen some chatter about this device and actually sent another modder the stock image as research material for the arcade mini. Its promising and these Chinese devices have similar builds. I woiuld have to have a mini to test it out and dont have the budget to buy one right now. If I could scrounge up a mini maybe.

I only modded the English file system. Honestly I did not look at the other languages. I can look at them and see if there is a simple fix. Sorry

Hi there, I've tried to update with the new menu on the K3 16GB version & the software update appears to have worked (I mean, the operating system  has installed o.k.)  Only trouble is all the games seem to have disappeared.  Have I done something wrong & is there anything I can do to get them back? Thanks for any ideas. 

I remember I had a similar problem a long time ago when I tried to connect to my old Windows computer & all the games got wiped but then a hard reset got them back. However, clicking on 'restore default settings' in the options menu doesn't do anything & I can't remember if there's another way to do a hard reset (in case that might help).

Oh yeah, I suppose I should say what I did to get the software on the device - since it's possible I've done something stupid and missed a step.  Basically, I flashed the software onto a memory card using Etcher and then rebooted. Maybe it's a lot more complicated than that?!

Thanks for any ideas guys anyway!

Sorry for the delayed response. I did not put any games in the download because of legal issues. I did not want to be distributing roms. you will have to find your own roms and place them in the corresponding folders under the "games folder". If you want more instruction let me know.

FYI

MegaUpload try charging customers after a certain amount of bandwidth and make you wait 3 hours for it to continue, then it downloads some more then they try and charge you again. Do your best not to to use MEGAUPLOAD dude.

Yeah Mega has gotten really bad my friend.  They either want you referring friends email addresses who have to agree so you can download which they then sell off to other companies or you have to pay a flat monthly fee!! I hate that site now lol

I'm so sorry this has happened to you. This is the first time I have had this brought this to my attention. My Google Drive and Dropbox is full because I offer a lot of stuff to people. I would have to pay to upgrade something. I found mega again after many downloads I did with them in the past with them with no issues. Question, was the custom down-loader free and did it harm your PC?

Hey dude,  firstly I'd like to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU for uploading the stock / custom 16gb firmware my device now works as intended after 4 months of trying all sorts but I found your Youtube page.  Thanks so much.

Side note:  No malware detected with the "MEGAsync"  client on my PC after scanning with AVG and Malwarebytes, its just a new thing with them now and it seems the download client is faster than downloading directly from their site.   Maybe put up a little disclaimer advising folks to download their client rather than get tricked into paying.  Cheeky buggers.  Thanks again my friend.   ;D

EDIT: I love your version of the firmware dude and yes the client is free and safe, I had to download Google Chrome (uuuuugh) and the client but it saves time and money lol.

Hate to be a bother but did you remove the video player from your CFW? Theres a folder on there for videos when I plug it into the computer but no icon or option to playback media on the device?  Is there a way I could potentially add it back in, im pretty savvy when I get down to it just need to know which tools to use.

Cheers,  Greg

sorry for the delay, as you see from my YouTube I'm very active right now. as far as the video player the 16 gb version has it removed from the factory and when i put it in from the 4gb system it crashes the OS. I figure a lot of code tinkering and tracking down thew breaking points would be successful but I don't have the time right now. As far as mega downloads I used them as one more free source to distribute but I know as my success grows I will need to pay for and up graded client.
