If someone is willing to develop for this GAME console, I'm willing to give RETRO GAME to him.

Console looks good. How is the build quality? and dpad/buttons?

Hope it is like Dingoo A380 which was well built and solid to use as a portable gaming device.

For what it is... It is great. The REVO K101 was no slouch. This is a GOOD pmp emulator player clone. Rare to see one with this much potential.

It is the PAP Plus. It just has the quality of REVO K101 casing and buttons,etc. This device really deserves to be the next Dingoo. I think it is better than the A380 that came out a few years ago.

Has anyone tried the papk iii plus d menu firmware files on the retro game handheld since they have same soc chips should it not work the same as the papk iii plus?

https://github.com/JackD83/dmenu/blob/master/release/dmenu_0.7_k3_0.4.zip
https://github.com/JackD83/dmenu/blob/master/release/emulator.zip
https://github.com/JackD83/dmenu/blob/master/release/apps.zip

Installation:
- make a backup of your internal sd-card!
- unpack all zips to the root of your external sd-card
- start dmenu/installer/install.dge to install the new menu

You need to have the right drivers for the LCD panel. The K101 clone uses a very odd resolution LCD panel. The firmware for a screen that does not match the driver will crash and brick the unit.

How do you make a backup of the internal SD card? Does it require taking the unit apart? Can we backup the default firmware image without opening up the unit? Does anyone have any instructions? I will try it for us all. I just do not want to open up the unit if I do not have to.

Hmm, I will wait for another owner to crack it open. I am fine with it for now. I never can get the unit to be as good when you get dust under the screen. Hate that shit.
