Mine arrived yesterday, I've been obsessed with it, it's awesome! Best emulation handheld ever, beats LDK Game. I have a few questions if anyone can help:

1. Any restrictions on what SD card I can use? Would I be able to use a 200 GB micro sd card?

2. FBA - how do I go to the emulator menu when I'm playing a game? (for save state, etc) the start+select button doesn't do anything, neither does the power button.

3. Is there a way to transfer PS1 save states from LDK Game into the PS1 emulator in RG350? I think the emulator is the same, but on RG350 I couldnt find the savestate or the PS1 emu folder.



Thanks

I'll Try :)

1. Any restrictions on what SD card I can use? Would I be able to use a 200 GB micro sd card?

I "Think" 128GB is the limit, however I haven't tried above 128GB... A lot of devices say "Max 128GB" but when an SD Card above the limit is formated and used they are fine... That said if you dont already have a 200GB card, and you are buying a card for the RG-350 then get 128GB to be sure.... I doubt you will need more than that.

2. FBA - how do I go to the emulator menu when I'm playing a game? (for save state, etc) the start+select button doesn't do anything, neither does the power button.

Hold L1, R1, and press Select :) There is a version of FBA which uses power button for the menu )

3. Is there a way to transfer PS1 save states from LDK Game into the PS1 emulator in RG350? I think the emulator is the same, but on RG350 I couldnt find the savestate or the PS1 emu folder.

I dont think so... But have you tried copying the MCR file ? (It is the Memory Card file) Save the game using a save point in the game then, copy the MCR to your 350 and load the game... Then create a new save state file...  That might work  :)

Good Luck, let me know if it works...

ace9094, thank you!

I'll try copying the MCR file, good idea.


I have one more question-- how do I overclock the CPU? In the LDK Game I could press select on an emulator icon and go to a menu that would allow me to overclock. I don't see that option in the RG350.

Okay my RG-350 has arrived, what a beauty! I love it already, though I didn't get much time.

I did try XMAME v2.0 and can confirm that so far it's working very nicely.

I'm just going to tweak a few things over the next couple days and then will release something.

It has been awhile since I have been into these things.

The RG350 seems like an up to date version of the old GP2X, which is a good thing...

Well a lot has happened in retro handheld gaming since those GP2X days and I still have mine.
There is actually an new upgraded version of the rg350 just released in metal called rg350m which looks beautiful but it is more expensive than the regular version. The CPU is the same but it improves on a few things like the dpad and analog controller layout.

Slaanesh, any news on your new xmame2.0? I dont want to pressure you in releasing it but it seems to be taking forever and many of us are looking forward to it.

Yeah the last thing I did with these was the Pandora project.

The 350 is just something I bought on impulse.  It seems to be nice for what it is.  I have the itch to mod it to make a swappable 3500 Mah battery for it where when one drains you can easily swap it for a new one.

Is there some kind of repository for the emus, and which are the latest versions etc or do you just need to google around to find them?  For example I can't find Colecovision, Vectrex or Intellivision anywhere but I have seen them on You tube.

Just got my RG350 a month ago and just heard you were working on this update, but I see this is the last message you ever posted. Hope everything is ok! I was really excited to see XMAME was getting updated!!!

@slaanesh it would be fabulous to see xmame 2.0! It's still my favourite emu for the RG350 and would be greeted with cheers by many  8)

What is the current latest XMAME and where can I get it?  I tried the one in the github but it seems older and I was dumb enough to over write the one that came in the firmware.  Now vertical games don't rotate counterclockwise so I can use the stick and buttons to play.

Thank for the info.

How do I get XMAME to play vertical shooters etc with the screen rotated the right way where I can use the stick and the BUTTONS on the bottom.  Every version I tried to download gives me the screen the opposite way, where the screen is oriented in vertical mode with the d-pad and stick on the bottom.   I have seen it the other way but can't find that version.

You should see the option you request on that how to (even if it's for dual stick control here). I did'nt test it anyway.

mainly Start + L for bringing Mame Menu.

Yeah I know about that it only sets controls though.  Mine shows up like the picture but I need to rotate the screen 180 degrees to use the other controls.  The one that came with it did that but as I said I screwed up and over wrote that one like an idiot thinking I had a newer version.

Hi Slaanesh , can you give us an update on XMame 2.0 ? Keep up the good work. Xmame 1.3 is still my most played emulator and I am forever grateful that you released this back in 2014 🙏🙏🙏

to play in tate mode with buttons change video rotation to 'portrait' you may need to update to v.1.3
