Does anyone know the maximum of characters that is accepted in flashback 9? I noticed that the console can only read the roms with small names with no space between them and with few letters, also does not accept any kind of special character, we have to write as short as possible and no space between letters. I found it very tiring to have to rename all roms if you want to play them, Retron is a much better option than Flashback ....
The latest community update contains 3.9.4. The (4) adds CDF support as its major feature, which allows Mappy, Super Cobra Arcade, WoW, etc to run. The code is available here; it should be easily portable to run on the AtGames device.
Who would be able to convert this to a firmware that can be installed on the FB9?
I would think twice about swapping the FB9 for the FB8. The FB9 uses Stella for emulation. The FB8 uses AtGames own emulation which is not as good as Stella. The FB9 has SD card support so you can add additional ROMs. The FB8 doesn't. I think you'd be better off just waiting and getting the FB9 paddles.
It does happen during the emulation but it doesn't happen when you're on the game selection menu and the background music is playing. Definitely a problem with the emulation...and it's not consistent. I wonder if it's only present on the Gold versions.
I'm attaching a wav file. I loaded Return To Haunted House and reset the game several times to get a sample of the intro theme. I don't know if "dropouts" are a good description but listen for yourselves. I tried another TV and the issue persists. Does anyone have a Flashback 9 that sounds like this?
