  1. On the full size you can swap disks in the menu. Wish they would release that as an update on the mini. As far as the controllers go i can edit the gamecontrollerdb.txt to support other controllers. I however do not own a neo geo x so if you wanted me to set that up you would have to ship the controller to me so i can set it up then i would ship it back to you. I have the genesis mini and the retrobit official 6 button controller for the genesis mini so i could add those as well.
  2. I would disagree about updating the mini. There will probably be an update when the vic20 is out. The last update was for both the mini and full-size when the full-size came out.
  3. There is a program on the pc for creating cjm files. You can make a universal file that works for all games that sits in the root of your usb and then make separate cjm files for any that need any special change like setting pal or ntsc. And without editing the gamecontrollersdb.txt you cant use a stella adapter or a upci.
  4. 4ever2600 give me your zip code so i can get shipping quote. to everyone interested i will offer it to everyone in order. So if one person declines i will offer it to the next person and so on...
  5. And thank you. I have 25 years experience in modifying electronics and i am all about making something look as professional and factory as possible.
  6. The 7800 i used as a donor was smashed and a cat had chewed the power wire right at the brick and the connector so that wasnt salvageable at all. It was free though with two joysticks so i wasnt going to complain.
  7. And then if you look in there you will also find my post that has a list of incompatible games that are compatible if you use a harmony cart. I was hoping for about $35usd plus shipping.
  8. I have a boxed cartridge modded atari flashback 2. I modded it about 6 months ago. Not sure if there was any interest in buying it or not
  9. Nope. Only update now is the announcement of TheVIC20 full size
  10. I didnt pursue it any further. They identified an issue with a ton of controllers with both analog and dpads and were supposed to add the fix. Not sure if the full-size got the fix as i dont have one but the Mini never did.
  11. You can also run the games on the pi in 240p. So you can make it look amazing on your monitor.
  12. I just acquired a flashback 9 gold and while it all looks like the same hardware could be used in the fb9 gold could be used in the x for the 2.4ghz, there are different traces going to the clock (which isnt on the x either) and a few other places, means the 2 chips designed to be used in the x must be newer/different chips.
  13. Atgames didnt start making atari flashbacks until the 3. So they are designed different from curt vendell’s flashback 2 and 2+.
  14. That is an atari 7800 controller. Not compatible with a 2600 except running 2600 on a 7800.
  15. What needs modified on the 2600 paddles to work on flashback? I played a paddle game just fine and both players worked for me. And the flashback 9, 9 gold and x use stella 3.xx which allows use of both paddles and joysticks.
  16. Any chance you can take better quality pics of the motherboard so i can see traces and numbers and chips so i can compare to flashback x to see if i can just buy a flashback 9 and steal all the bluetooth circuits and put it all in the flashback x. The flashback x motherboard has spots on the backside where i believe the ic chips for the bluetooth plus some capacitors go. Plus the oscillator and other caps on the top side.
  17. As for the sound have you tried different hdmi cables? There are different versions of hdmi cables and some of the changes in them involve audio.
  18. Well now that you did this can you flash the firmware for the atari fb 9 from sd card slot? The reason the fire button and joystick work is because they are the same pinout on a sega genesis. The other buttons on the atari fb p1 joystick are not common to anything else.
  19. So i took high quality pics so you can see that there is nothing for the bluetooth. There arent any capacitors or resistors and the two chips that appear to go to the fb9 (he posted bad pics so cant say 100%) uses for the bluetooth are missing on the front and back of the fbx board https://m.imgur.com/a/1iK6L6c.jpg https://m.imgur.com/a/HvYrZd9.jpg
  20. I am going to test the driving controller, keypad and trak-ball as soon as my replacement fbx comes in. I static shocked it touching the switches and now the otg and pc syncing no longer works so i cant test games on my hdd. So i sanded the chrome off of the square part off the switch covers that touch the actual switches and will swap these ones out when the new system arrives.
  21. The updates are all the same. There is no available software specific to the full size c64.
  22. You can switch between pal and ntsc on the system to accomodate whatever game you are playing since hdmi doesnt care about ntsc and pal so no issues outputting either one.
