I know this was discussed here already but I would like to post steps to follow if after flashing RetroFW image to SD card and booting console the partition does not resize automatically:

1 - Connect console to computer via cable and press A button to enter USB Storage Mode.
2 - Install minitools partition wizard free and open it, select RETROFW partition and click Check File System to repair partition errors.
3 - Remove sd card from console and put into sd card reader.
4 - Using minitools partition wizard free select RETROFW partition, under Change Partition menu click Extend Partition. Drag slider till the end and click OK. Press Apply button in top left corner to save changes.

Hope it helps somebody  :)

Sorry for being a n00b.

I play around with the device (still in its original chinese FW) cherry picking the built-in games, deleting one by one that I don't like

And somehow the menu got messed up, not sure what I did, the icons are there but the title only becomes "run", and there're lots of them. Also some icons turned into gear icon.

Luckily someone pointed out to this thread even before I receive my device.

Thus I had to write the RetroFW to the internal SDCard. I do prefer this FW than the original chinese one, but there're couple of games missing (SuperTux, Jazz Jackrabbit, along with couple others, like Chip's Challenge clone). Open Jazz seems not to be developed anymore (github page missing).

Is there any way to fetch the games included within the original chinese firmware? Or maybe just the stock chinese firmware link anyway? I couldn't find them anywhere.

And the stupid questions :
1. how do you use the ipk files?
2. Where do you put snes roms? I can get to NES fine but pocketsnes don't have any folder options. Yes I read the manual provided but that don't help at all.
3. What format should I use for pocketsnes? Currently I extracted the roms (smc and sfc)
4. What format and what kind of file version I can use for arcades? Currently I have mameui32 romsets but they don't appear at all.

Thank you!

Eh nevermind about the SNES I got it sorted out.

it needs the second SDCard plugged in

SNES & NES emulation works GREAT

Don't really care about 8 and 16 bit sega consoles though, since genesis and SNES share mostly the same library but with lesser sound quality. Probably those worth playing on Genesis are just Sonic series.

32x emulation (picodrive) is HORRIBLE, unplayable

GBA (gpsp) emulation works great, however, screen refresh rate are HORRIBLE

PSX emulation is mixed bag, some playable, some are not. So curations definitely needed. Mostly are running slow though.

There're some built in games on the stock FW that I miss :

- Rise of the Triad port (most likely can run full Rise of the Triad with the full data like Doom and Quake)

- Eduke port (most likely can run BloodCM? Since Blood CM uses eduke engine. I haven't got a chance tried it out. Please somebody upload this)

- Jazz Jackrabbit port (read somewhere it able to run the full game)

- SuperTux (simple open source mario clone, albeit slower paced but it's GOOD)

- Pang clone/port

- 3D tetris clone

- Some match 3 puzzles

Some other games I can't remember.

Chip's challenge cloe is Tile World, already included in RetroFW 1.2

But I would appreciate if somebody can upload the stock chinese firmware so that I can extract those games to RetroFW

Everything sorted out now.

But those games I mention above, I failed to find any working copy of it, only OpenJazz. That is with some screen bug (white bar at the bottom). I cannot recall whether the chinese stock have this too or not.

Well, I got thousands of games library within this tiny device, do I even need more games?

Also, some errors were found with the full firmware (on the fat32 partition).

SNES refused to go to its file explorer on initial setup, as well as other emulators, I can only remember Mame. Thus leaving me confused for 2 days looking for a solution for it.

I'm guessing the solution was to insert the external SD card. But I'm not really so sure about that.

Thank you, but that is not for LDK, that's for RS-97

The binaries are compatible, the games run, but it have black bar on below.

Some new games, SRB2 runs good too, but I played the PC version and don't really like it, very hard to control. Very impressive mod, but to be honest it's a bad game.

OpenJazz in this firmware is skewed.

Anyway "useless firmware" on Jutley's website is the closest thing to LDK stock, and it is in English.

Some games don't work, as they did in stock too, but it packs more stuffs as well.

Just the new release for reFw V1.2

Don't see much difference except for addtional ECWolf and Beats of Rage (which don't run). Cannonball still don't run too. Im curious what kind of game is this. I can't find any gameplay video anywhere.

ECWolf is nice. Thanks. As I remember it wasn't included in the previous image.

BTW the image become 10 gigs I suppose that was to fill the whole empty space?

Cannonball still don't run too.
Cannonball requires the extracted Outrun roms in .cannonball/roms.
It's not provided by default as it is copyrighted by Sega and Sega would not allow us to share it in any case.

I really regret not adding a warning screen in Cannonball.

Oh yeah I notice some cpu clock thingy under the menu

Means the new RetroFW actually tweak each launchers to run with certain CPU clock?

Cannonball requires the extracted Outrun roms in .cannonball/roms.

Outrun? Holy batdroppings batman! Yes, please!

What rom do I need for this? Genesis or the arcade/mame?

Arcade rom obviously. If you want to play the genesis version just use Picodrive.

No idea how the Outrun rom changed over the years but the one as of latest romset does seem to work.
