#4212938 Atari Flashback 9 FIRMWARE for adding games to SD card

Posted by tiktok4321 on Mon Feb 4, 2019 1:56 PM

I can totally understand how casual buyers would be underwhelmed in buying the AFPortable.  I'll be honest - it took a little time to warm up to.  There are definitely issues that need to be considered, IE: the D-Pad response.  DigDug, PacMan, etc., are practically useless with the character going whatever direction other than what's pressed.  Other games seem to not matter.  I don't get why, and I know there's been a lot of discussion about it.  I've even tried FireSlayer's 3-D printed version, but it really wasn't much better, though it did help a bit.

 

Also, are the traces to the AV output wrong?  I have audio on yellow and video on red on my composite...  And the RF interference is huge.  LOTS of noise.

 

I did get mine for $15.  I'd buy a few more for $15.  But $40 is crazy high for a product of this quality.




#4204125 Zaku for the Atari Lynx: Official thread

Without going back 40 pages in history, is there a plan to re-release Zaku or any new Lynx games?




#4203305 Atari Flashback Portable!

It's not going to happen from AtGames or any other mainstream company, unfortunately. The Lynx is poorly remembered and Atari themselves has few of the original games (with few well-known titles) still in their possession. The best chance is for us to move to a future handheld that supports something like Stella and firmware updates and can have someone else make additional cores. On the plus side, for dedicated Lynx fans, getting a screen-modded Lynx with a flash cartridge is a really fantastic option.

It's time for a comeback! lol

I was wondering whether or not to do a Raspberry Pii emulator in a Lynx case, but now I'm straying far... I have considered a 2nd Lynx I system that I can hack the new LED screen on. It actually seems easier than backlighting an original Gameboy.

Meanwhile, I look forward to an improved FBP! Oh, can you suggest that they include a wrist strip that attaches to the left hand side? Just sayin'... The provisions are there... :D

I just want to see a Portable with a functional D-Pad with either a) paddle access or b) paddle games removed.
