Ah great, thanks, that's really useful to know. How complicated is using the D.C. to do this - I mean, are there like specific buttons you can use to copy & paste files from one directory to another or is it a lot more complicated than that? Or maybe there's a tutorial on this somewhere? (Thanks a lot for your help anyway)

It should be fairly easy really, I just don't know all the buttons. There should be a tutorial for it somewhere online though.

Hi!
I'm new and I'm a big fan of Nick's custom menu.
I've modified it :
- In best emulators : added Nintendo Family Disk System (FCEUX), Sega Game Gear (SMS-SDL), Sega CD/Mega CD (Picodrive)
- In More emulators : added Atari ST, Sinclair Spectrum, Thomson TO7, TI 99/4A, Nec PC 9801, ScummVM, Wonderswan, Vectrex, Pokemini and Sega VMU
- In Games, added a new section "Freewares" with lots of games : Giana Returns, Open GGS, Boulder Dash, Mr Drillux, Open Tyrian, Super Tux, SQRXZ 3, Hhexen, Rise of the triads, Duke nukem 3D, Shadow warrior, Wolfenstein 3D, Spear of destiny, Flashback, Arkanoid, Beat2x, Open Jazz, Ganbare! Natsuki-San!, Vectoroids, Noiz2sa, Open BOR, Pang, Quake
- In system settings, added 2 options : Normal clock (-> file overclock.dge -> 528mhz) and Overclock (-> file overclock.dge -> 636mhz)
- Added a new wallpaper
- Added some boxarts...

In some emulators, you can run the internal games. For example, in Picodrive : Load new rom/iso -> /.. -> /.. -> .. -> memory -> /game -> /md

This sounds great! I'd love to get my hands on a copy when you make it available.

We just have to figure out what to call it now. Rockyz Nickz Menu Fork? Nickz n Friendz Super Menu?

You can add these new emulators and games in a future release of your custom menu if you want.

I will add 9 new homebrews next...

I checked it out - looks good - like the background although the menu selector is a bit hard to see.
Tried ZX Spectrum but nothing happens - maybe it needs the ROM file - I admit I haven't investigated yet!
Anyway good work!!

Great to hear it will be incorporated back into Nick's project - roll on V18!! ;-)

Seems to work awesome!. One question: How did you decide the clock speeds to put in the overclock settings? My unit was set at 576 MHz default, and I'm wondering how high we can go, and in what increments.

Thanks a bunch!

Thanks Nick ! I'm flattered that you credit me !
For the overclocking, my unit is set at 528mhz by d?faut.
I have read that the PAP K3 plus could work up to 640mhz but mine seems not to exceed 636...
Mid overclocking (582) is the middle of these 2 values of course.

Normal default frequency jz4760 is 600 Mhz. Why you use 528 I dont know.

I don't know... When I don't overclock the unit, it works at 528 mhz...

@Nick : the Atari ST emulator is not in the CFG file of your custom menu ?

In your readme.txt :

- ROM format for Super Nintendo, Famicom : ZIP, SMC, SFC
- ROM format for Amstrad CPC : DSK (in the "disk" directory)
- ROM format for MSX : MX1, MX2 (for MSX1 and MSX2 machines)

Atari 5200 emulator can run Atari 800XL games (ROM format : ATR)

Oh, I forgot to update the README. I guess that will wait until v19

Strange, mine runs at 576 Mhz default, and resents on each boot. For v19, I will remove the commentary (like "underclock" and "overclock") and just have the frequencies since there is no common "default" apparently.

Awesome! You're a machine dude. I'm way behind on work now, but will try to put this into a new version soon.

It is possible to add a section to play the internal games...
I've tried this for example :

        SubMenuItem md_orig2
        {
            Icon = "../ipen/res/subIcons/md.png"
            Name = "Sega Genesis with internal games"
            Executable = "./md_emu.dge"
            WorkDir = "/boot/game/md"
            Selector = true
            SelectorDir = "/mnt/memory/game/md"
            VolumeControl = true
        }

The selector points to the folder with internal Genesis games in this case.
The only problem (only for me ?) : the PAP freezes after exiting the emulator...

The selector points to the folder with internal Genesis games in this case.
The only problem (only for me ?) : the PAP freezes after exiting the emulator...

That's useful info. Unfortunately, my device came with no internal ROMs, so I focused the menu on only using the SD card. I'll never need an internal games option, but it may be worth adding another section for those who do.

Ok!

Nick, can you (or someone else) share me a zip archive of your internal FBA/NeoGeo emulator (folder /boot/memory/fba) ?
Mine doesn't work anymore...
That's why I use FBA Capex which can run .fba files...

Thanks !
