Title: WARNING: RG99 != RG300
Post by: Zereth on March 19, 2020, 09:13:46 am
So some genius at Anbernic has had a brilliant idea: Using a smaller screen and a weaker chip in an RG300 shell.
(Sarcasm, anyone?)

I've been a week trading messages with them, talking about the RG300, because this item had "RG300" in its product name and description (got pictures of that) and a slightly lower price. I wanted one for testing, using different screens and all; they wouldn't sell me parts, so I asked for a discont to which they agreed... after I had completed my order. Fishy, but it's Anbernic, benefit of the doubt and all. So they send it, I ask about the discount and they say I did not order an RG300: that is an RG99: smaller screen, different processor.

So, guys... Be careful if you order RG300s. You might get one of these RG99s instead. I haven't received it yet, I actually hope it'll get cancelled before it arrives; if it does arrive I'll share some photos.

Funny part of the story: I was tasked by the parent's association over here to find a reliable supplier and choose an affordable gaming device for kids currently in lockdown (covid) and I told myself "two birds, one stone", the device I want and a bunch of them for the kids. Anbernic is not getting that big order, that's for sure. We'll see how the dispute/refund goes.

I'm not throwing in any links not to give them any traffic, hope you'll understand.

You bought it from their official store on aliexpress?

Yes, and talked with them for a week before making the purchase, always about the RG300.

If you want screenshots of the convo I can PM them to you.

Dang it, here you go (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000588389559.html).

Maybe it's not that bad, right?  At least the system appears to be the same as that of older consoles.  The problem is that the dollar is getting higher every day.

Well it is. It may as well be an RS-90 in an RG300 shell. And I bet it'll be 320x240.

The parents over here are annoyed... at me. They had me propose several models, they researched them; they rejected the RS-90 (Retro Mini) because of the tiny screen, some mentioned "potential eyesight problems" for their kids, go figure. They finally agreed on the RG300, a couple of them had seen mine and most of them had Game Boys when they were younger. They tasked me with finding a "reliable supplier", they don't trust Gearbest, Banggood, Aliexpress. But we're talking 3 kids per home (average), some were sent here from bigger cities with their relatives, this is a mess. Amazon prices aren't an option. So I went for AliExpress, official Anbernic store; I approached them for a single unit, if you mention there can be hundreds of units involved they'll put on their widest smile to make a deal. And you won't know if they'll be up to it.

Kids can't go out to the park or anything, some picked their parents' phones and even made in-game purchases. I know, parental controls and all, they didn't. And the bandwidth they're taking up is... the biggest problem. We're away from the nearest city, we rely on 3G/4G for data, and grownups are using that for working from home.

Retro handhelds were a great option to address these problems, I put myself into this and it's become a shitstorm. I tried that old "two birds with one stone", get my device for testing and experiments and solving the kid issue... and stones are flying towards me instead. Virtual ones, so far (messages, puns). No good deed goes unpunished.

I'm trying to get out of this situation like it never happened. But also I thought I'd better warn you guys: these are two different devices. And 35 to 42 eur for a "RetroMini-like device" with misleading advertising, that's something to be wary of. Right?

I could go on and on, I hope this doesn't end up being another huge message of mine...

First of all, sorry for the image quality. I'll try making better pictures if there's anyone really interested, but I've already asked for a return+refund. I was (still am) quite angry, my hands shaking and such, couldn't take better ones after several attempts. Also, no matter how high-res a picture of a turd is, it'll still be a picture of a turd...

(https://i.ibb.co/r7XHckG/RG99-1.jpg)

(https://i.ibb.co/rGwnN61/RG99-2.jpg)

It has integrated storage. Where the internal SD should be (if it were an RG300) it reads:
RG99_V1.0
20191221

USB-C charging port, most likely USB 2. Light leaks from both sides of the screen, in and out. Shoulder buttons feel a bit more... wiggly than those of the RG300. Games... it's your dear "169 in I" (sic).

The screen does actually look better than the RG300's but it's also smaller; it's got the same "IPS" sticker behind the battery the RG300 had, go figure. The infamous blue "mp4-like" menu has the text squashed, wider and shorter than it should be, but readable. If I had to guess I'd say maybe the screen is 480x320 and that menu has (almost always) run in 320x240, but your guess is as good as mine. I'm not feeling like counting pixels right now.

This turd is underpowered. For example, Street Fighter 2, Megaman Power Battle, Strider Hiryu, all have very annoying sound/music artifacts and slowdowns. Fatal Fury 2 plays and sounds like half speed, being generous there. Also, remember those 2 buttons for savestates and emulator menus? Not bound here; in the menu the "key pressed" sound is played, the emulators do nothing when they're pressed or held down. Shoulder buttons do work in Mario Kart, which works surprisingly well compared to other's I've mentioned, but nothing to call home about. Specially noticeable in GBA but also in other systems: there's one column of pixels to the right which is wrong. It's either from the other side of the screen or garbled, you know what I mean, right? Nothing new, really. Oh, my previous battery adapter for the RG300 fits perfectly, as anyone could expect.

I'm returning it, so I'm not tearing it apart unless I have to keep it and that would really-really-really piss me off. It does smell funny, not a figure of speech. It has a transparent sticker on the screen, what's beneath feels like plastic, not glass. It feels like an RS90 in a different dress, maybe a bit more underpowered than the RS90 but that might be because of the screen or my bias (I'm still pretty angry, it's taking me ages writing this). If you want any details, info, plugging it to the computer, you name it... just tell me. I'm not feeling... creative with this unit.

Summing up: If you buy an RG300 and it has the well-known blue menu and no internal SD card, congratulations! You've got an RG99! Don't ask me what to do with it!

Again, sorry for the poor photos.

P.S.: I didn't feel like counting pixels, so I made a "picture" folder in some SD card I had lying around, tossed my templates (320p, 360p, 480p) and opened them using both the "image viewer" and the file explorer in the RG99. They appear rotated 90deg no-matter-what (I got 2 versions of each, one at zero and another one at 90deg, all show up misaligned); I rotate them pushing random keys (as usual) and they won't show full-screen but squashed. Cool, not that I expected better but had to try. But... the screen flickers. Like, a LOT, disco time! I use the middle buttons (those which won't work with emulators) to lower the brightness and it gets more noticeable. Top brightness, less noticeable, still annoying.  It's not there while playing, but made me wonder... >30Hz screen? Final nail for its coffin?

Despite that it wasn't advertised properly, it looks like a nice RS-90 upgrade. It'll probably run better with OpenDingux instead of ucosII.

I agree it's kind of nice for an RS-90, the screen in particular. But for an RG300 it's anything but nice. And its price is (as for now) closer to the RG300 than the RS-90.

I am in lockdown and have been given 4 days to deliver it back, that's impossible. So it seems I'll have to keep it.
I feel defeated and strongly disgusted with Anbernic.

OpenDingux... I guess anything would run better than the stock OS, but it's 256MB of internal storage and I'm not feeling confident fiddling with it. You know, when you're excited and happy about getting something to work you put your heart and soul into it, no matter the odds, you'll ultimately get it to work. When you feel bad and disgusted and sick of something, no matter how much effort you put into it: there's no reward in the end, no satisfaction. And if I happen to brick it in the proccess I'll feel even worse. But if I can give you guys a hand to help any other poor souls who purchased an RG99 (boys and girls, please don't!), just drop me a line.

Title: Re: WARNING: RG99 != RG300
Post by: Zereth on April 03, 2020, 05:43:36 pm
$20 plus any CFW, might think about it. $25 tops. But it's at about $40 without an SD card now, there's no reason to pick this RG99 over any LDK or RG300 for the price/performance.

Update on mine: Took me almost 3 hours on the phone but got it returned, just picked up. Poor delivery guys, not their fault but neither is mine...
Title: Re: WARNING: RG99 != RG300

So this was the reason why I saw the RG300 at such a cheap price in the Anbernic store this past sale. I almost went for it. My guess is that it is a RS-90 inside a RG300 she'll with little to no optimization to the interface, except to see that it works. Chabaduo at its finest...

Oh no, i just ordered one for 26$

Is there any custom firmware for RG99 guys? I heard the factory firmware is bad.
If not, hope i can play some Pokemon games at least  :'(

You could ask @pcercuei whether he'd be willing to support it - but that would mean getting him one unit for development purposes. I'd be willing to contribute a few bucks - it's essentially a bigger RetroMini with a larger screen and more buttons, and I think it would be quite nice with custom firmware.
Title: Re: WARNING: RG99 != RG300
Post by: pcercuei on May 25, 2020, 03:17:06 am
If it uses the same interface for the LCD as for the RS-12 or the g100, then I'd need to get these to work first.

Not sure whether it's enough to figure the LCD connection type out, if not, you'll probably need that one device to pull apart.

Post by: kawabushi on June 02, 2020, 05:34:35 pm
But then, it?s so bad this RG-99? Considering its cpu is similar to the Retromini RG-90 in which came out a customized firmware that significantly improved performance, we can?t expect anything like that for the RG-99? It only costs US $28.72. The screen is pretty good at viewing angles. At emulation level it is able to do it decently?
Title: Re: WARNING: RG99 != RG300
Post by: v47 on June 02, 2020, 06:18:37 pm
It's only bad when they try to masquerade it as RG300, and sell it for $50 (which seems to be exactly the case on ebay right now). If you can get it for less than $30 shipping included, then it's fine, even with the stock fw - same capabilities as the original RetroMini, if I understand correctly.

Custom fw would make it really nice - a bigger RetroMini with a larger screen and more buttons, a $25 pricetag, and an open system? Sign me up twice.

OK understand, here in my country, Spain, I can get it for 30 euros shipping included and purchased here in Spain directly, it would take a week to receive it alone. I think for that price I?ll try, and if a custom firmware comes out then better!

Feel free to share your experiences here if you end up getting it - I would mostly be interested whether they updated the fw to play GB/GBC games (the RetroMini couldn't, you had to use an emulator).

They probably didn't.

Hello! here's my RG-99 review received on the 18th. First of all, excuse my English level, I am Spanish and I am using an online translator.

(https://i.postimg.cc/BQsx3QZM/U5f36a69a2bca4670844e532df04eb2b0i.jpg)
--- RG-99 ---

As you know not long ago and with the RG-300, in Aliexpress appeared this model, some smart sellers were selling it pretending to be the superior model selling it 10-15 euros cheaper because they are exactly the same physically sharing the same housing and buttonhole, the business was round. The only way to know which one was which was which was opening the console to check the cpu or check if from the back we could see a micro-SD removing the battery.

Other more honest vendors offered the real name and real data of the console and that was it. The differences at hardware level are abysmal and that in practice is very noticeable.

(https://i.postimg.cc/xjGfJs1g/bueno.jpg)

Characteristics:

- 2.8-inch IPS screen: resolution up to 960*480
- CPU / RAM: 360MHz / 32MB
- Vibration effect
- 169 integrated games
- External Battery BL-5C 1800 mAh, 9 hours play time
- Storage capacity: 256MB
- Supports micro-SD card expansion up to 256GB

As you can see the difference in hardware is great but without a doubt the most significant difference is the operating system. The innards of the RG-99 are the same as those of the RS-90 (RetroMini) a console that appeared several years ago already and left a bittersweet aftertaste to the users due to its small screen, the lack of more buttons, to not having L/R triggers and to the deficient of its emulation, luckily, they took out a custom firmware that gave a new life to this console, going from emulating 5 systems to emulating all the 8-16 bits up to Mega-CD or Pc-engine CD.

(https://i.postimg.cc/PxtZGC3k/igual2.jpg)

The least interesting thing is the box, it came in pretty good condition, no scratches or bruises. Simple, but effective, inside it is the typical plastic tray that contains the console, a decent and colorful manual, that is, in Chinese and English, and a USB cable type C. No power charger, no headphones (some vendors do offer them), nothing else.

(https://i.postimg.cc/C5bRRtYj/2020-06-21.jpg)  (https://i.postimg.cc/D0DmYT6k/5f61466d-ea64-473f-891a-613c7167ad17.jpg)

The console comes in the typical protective bag soft as a baby's ass, once we remove the bag we find the console. The quality of the materials is very high, the construction is very solid, more than any of the others that I have bought until now, the crosshead and the buttons a joy, to make ha-do-kens does not imply any difficulty, but what but it impresses to me is the quality of the screen, 2.8 inches with some colors and a sharpness that can happen by a console of an official mark, the problems I will detail them but ahead.

--- FRONT PART ---

(https://i.postimg.cc/mrCmVZbM/2020-06-21-5-ok.jpg)

On the front side there is an IPS display with a resolution of 960*480 and perfect viewing angles and you can select the brightness from 4 different levels. I haven't found information if the screen is 50 or 60 Hz, and as it sticks, some emulators make a weird scaling with the resolution, so the texts in some games are not completely readable. Other than that, when playing the screen has an exceptional quality.

Cross and buttons with an unbeatable touch, nothing to add here, in the center we can find two buttons that have the utility to raise and lower the brightness of the screen, at the bottom, Select and Start. Pressing both buttons simultaneously we enter a menu that allows us to continue, exit the game or save and load up to 3 times for each game.

Below to the right the speaker, in the typical disposition of this console format, perhaps, the weakest part of the device (together with the emulation). Loose and unclear sound. However, the audio we can get with the 3.5mm jack with headphones is much better and loud.

--- REAR PART ---

(https://i.postimg.cc/1zMfkTrt/sdsafsafwesaf.jpg)

On the back we can see the L and R triggers, the circular shape of the key makes it fit perfectly to the fingers. They make a lot of emphasis on the fact that they have Omron buttons, what I really notice is that they are buttons with a different touch than the rest. They make the typical click and that's it. Personally I would have preferred buttons with membrane as always. I have had the opportunity to press Omron switches and buttons and they have nothing to do with this hahaha.

As a curiosity I have marked the arrangement of the charging LED (it turns red) and operation (it stays green) of the console. The back part seems to me a very peculiar place at least.

We can also appreciate the removable battery cover BL-5C 1800 mAh that promises us 9 hours of gameplay. I suppose that it will be with little sound and the brightness to the minimum. I could get more than 6 hours with medium brightness and volume.

--- RIGHT PART ---

(https://i.postimg.cc/wxkg0JFq/2020-06-21-6.jpg)

Nothing to highlight, just the potentiometer wheel that regulates the sound volume.

--- LEFT PART ---

(https://i.postimg.cc/nh23WFgQ/2020-06-21-4.jpg)

Here we have the ON-OFF selector button along with the micro-SD card slot.

--- TOP PART ---

(https://i.postimg.cc/K83YqjR0/2020-06-21-8.jpg)

Nothing to say, we can only see with more precision the shape of the L and R triggers so appreciated for the GBA and Super NES emulators.

--- BOTTOM PART ---

(https://i.postimg.cc/L40RcRdw/2020-06-21-9.jpg)

Here we see the connector to charge the console, I think it's a good idea that they have chosen a USB C type connector and not the typical micro USB, very well by the designer of the device. We can also see the 3.5 mm jack input through which we can get stereo audio with a very good quality and we can also get video through RCA. The quality is what we can expect in this type of video output, in a CRT screen looks great and on a flat screen because we can see the shortcomings of this type of output, but perfectly playable without lag or synchronization problems.

Next I will comment a little on the performance of some emulators and a little further down I will put some video. In theory the machine is capable of emulating the systems CP1, CP2, GBA, SFC, MD and FC and brings us in memory 169 games. As a plus it brings the list of games accompanied by an image of the cover of the games, I like that.

-CPS1-

The typical, Street Fighter II, Final Fight, Cadillacs, The Punisher... emulates it pretty well, pretty good audio and sound and pretty acceptable resolution.

-CPS2-

- At the moment, even though I've put in all the roms for this board, I've only been able to get the Capcom Sports Club to work smoothly and the Street Fighter Zero, but in this SF Zero the characters had voices like Alvin and the squirrels, hahaha, I'll keep trying.

-Game Boy Advance-

- Uff here depends a lot on the game, some good, some regulatory and some unplayable.

-Super Nintendo-

- Just like gba, it depends on the game but curiously gba is much better at a higher percentage. In the Snes emulator you can notice a considerable jump in frameskip.

-Megadrive-

- For me the best of all along with NES, almost 100% compatibility, very good sound and video, superior to the rest without being perfect of course this one. In the card is created a .config file of the Picodrive that I guess will use this console.

-Nes-

- Just like Megadrive, almost no problem.

We can also play Master System, Game Gear, Game Boy and Game Boy Color but not natively. In order to play these systems we have to use some application like Goomba, DrSMS or EZClient to pass the files from .sms .gg .gb/.gbc to .gba. The conversion from Game Boy to Advance is quite good and the resulting games are perfectly playable... with Master and Game Gear it doesn't happen the same, some are playable and others scratching. Pc Engine and Mame are not available for this system, or at least, I have not found the mode or the corresponding mame romset to be able to execute them correctly.

Well now I leave you some images recorded by me to see a little of its operation and some comparative to see how it defends the RG-99

--- New BittBoy vs RG-99 ---
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V58knNH3VKA

You have seen how this machine works and here are my impressions:

THE GOOD:

- Price, you can get it at Aliexpress for less than 30 ? shipping included.
- Very good quality materials, solid construction and controls that respond very well in general.
- Several emulators, option to load more roms through a micro-SD and possibility to record and save games.
- Headphone output (not all machines in this price range have it).
- OUTSTANDING screen, the best screen of all Chinese laptops I have.

THE BAD:

- Pretty poor emulation in general.
- The need to pull external applications to convert .gb .gbc .gg and .sms roms to .gba
- Many great emulators are missing, such as Pc Engine and Mame among others.
- Not being able to switch to a custom firmware loaded directly from a secondary micro-SD
- Very poor volume.
- Having to wait for the community to release some modified firmware to squeeze all its potential (not much, but like in a RS-90)

Of all the Chinese consoles I have, the RG-99 is currently in third place in terms of emulation. For me, the ranking from best to worst would be like this...

1? New BittBoy
2? PAP KIII
3? RG-99
4? CoolBaby RS-69
5? Pocke Gear
6? The rest of famiclones consoles type FC mini, Retromax, etc

I hope it will help you in case you have doubts about buying it or not, my advice is the following, if you can afford a little more money go for the RG-300, if you have a tight budget but want a good emulation at the cost of having a smaller screen go for the New BittBoy, if you have the money for a retro FC or a NES one chip clone I suggest you to try to save a little bit and buy the RG-99 that will do the same functions as the NES clone and you will be able to get a little more out of it with the rest of the emulators.

If you have any doubt or you want to know the performance of a particular game do not hesitate to ask me and I will help you in what I can.

Greetings to all!

It's a budget device, it can't have it all. Still, with cfw that supports proper emulators, I'd buy them in pairs - as mentioned, the shell is really nice, and fits in my hands perfectly.

Note that its 960x480 screen is really just 320x480, since they count sub-pixels and not full pixels. This means rendering in software four times more pixels than on the RS-90, with no IPU to do the scaling for you.

Should still be enough to run NES/SNES/SMD without downscaling (which looked bad on the RetroMini 240x160 resolution screen), but if that means it's going to be 4x slower, then I can see this being a problem.

Hello! I don't know if you know this page but I usually find information about retro systems on it. Until recently it only had technical characteristics of the RG-99 but now they have published some more things:

I have no idea about this but I have seen the name of some emulators that do not come as standard like the mame4all or the Gambatte among others accompanied by some cmd screenshots and I wondered if there is any progress in this system regarding emulation.

Do you know anything about this? Maybe they're working on something for RG-99 already? Or I'm getting my hopes up  :'(

This news is very good!

At the Anbernic Global Store in AliExpress, have another console called PMP IV.  I asked Mr. Anbernic and he told me that the Hardware is identical to RG99.
I'll wait for an official version of OpenDingux to come out for RG99 and then test it, maybe it will work on PMP IV?

It's reliable the that Aliexpress? seller, I bought mine in Aliexpress too but paying the shipping from my country. Do you have his tracking number? I see that since you posted it you have already sold 4, I don't know if to ask for another one now that they are so cheap...

Hello to all! I've finally decided to make the switch to Opendingux on my RG-99 and it shows. I've made a couple of videos and uploaded them to my channel in case you want to see the whole process from scratch. I just hope that I can help anyone who, like me, didn't dare to take the step.


Best regards!

Does the latest rg300 have a 3 inch or 2,8 inch ips screen?

Browsing around I found this user who seems to have OpenDingux running on a RG99 in a better way and with quite functional emulators, the problem is that I don't know how to install that update in .opk format.

Someone could help, a small tuto would be great. Thanks!
