I'm not sure how or when I said anything that made anyone think that the Retrominis I bought most recently, the actual, genuine Coolbaby Retrominis, did not have a micro SD card slot. I've seen them for sale plenty of places without a micro SD card, never, ever not once have I seen one for sale that didn't even have a slot. Likewise, every single genuine made-by-Coolbaby Retromini I have ever seen has only ever come with GBA games on it, whether on the resident memory in the board or in the micro SD card, if it came with one. Any time I have ever come across a variance of the games supplied, it's been through the micro SD card included, otherwise everybody just has the same 40 games.
I really honestly do not give a crap if it comes with a micro SD card or not, because if it does come with one it is only 8GB and that's tiny sauce by my book, I've already got 32GB cards that I will put in there without hesitation, I might even try a larger one in order to fit as many ROMs and even videos and stuff for my kids on the thing. The reason I made such a long-winded post in the first place about the batch of Retrominis that I last received is twofold: I got a Retromini with games that were not GBA games on it (Megadrive, SNES, NES, SMS, Arcade), and even some of what I would expect to be the more demanding games were running 100% fullspeed. Maybe that isn't a big deal to any of you guys but it was huge to me, made my eyeballs pop out. In this very thread I believe there are people complaining about frameskip that seems to be running in every GBA game, talk about emulating stuff other than GBA and everyone says "It's just too underpowered," it emulates other systems inside of a GBA emulator, etc. etc. etc. Well when I come across all of that and everything (except a couple SNES games) is running full speed, including an Arcade game emulator, I'm going to flip out. Does this mean different hardware? I doubt it, it's all Coolbaby Retromini. But they are writing this game batch directly to the board, not the micro SD card since they didn't include one. Did they rewrite firmware with better, faster code? Possibly.
