  1. So far so good with installing Windows x64. And Snappy Driver was a big help with installing all the drivers. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  2. But can I somehow use many different stand alone emus with Emulationstation? I really love it's GUI and skins. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks for all the feedback, guys. I know that there are more powerful options for cheap, but I got this thin client from a friend as a gift, and I am always fascinated with how far older/cheaper PC's can be pushed. Once I get my male to female SATA cable to utilize a 2.5" HDD, I will start my build, then let you all know how it works out! Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  4. Yea, you are probably right. Is there a way to make a leaner version of Windows 7 (probably 32-bit)? Also, will increasing the ram to 4GB be of any help? Finally, would you reccomend Retroarch for most systems? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  5. Then I will install LUbuntu + Retroarch + ES Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  6. Osgeld, Yea, I am considering Lakka with ES on top of that, but how would I install ES once Lakka has been installed? My initial though was Lunbuntu + ES + RetroArch, but I really don't have to much time to spend hours on end configuring everything. My thin client has a Radeon HD 6320 GPU built in, so it should be able to hand PSX and hopefully N64, and maybe even Saturn. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  7. I will probably go with Windows and just run Emulationstation as a frontend. I just want to extract and combine the contents of these IMG files, and have an internal 2.5" HDD. It is physically a thin client, but I know it isn't any more since everything is local. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  8. If I wanted to combine multiple images, all I would need is to extract the games and artwork from them? Or do I need to do something else in Emulationstation? I appreciate your help! I have been mostly an Origina Xbox fan as far as retro emulators, but wanna finally dive into emulation on a thin client. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  9. Youxia, I installed Linux Reader, and mounted a .img, but where can I find the games and artwork? So many folders say there is nothing recoverable. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  10. I guess a good question is, would I gain any performance shoukd I choose Linux vs Windows? According to my reading, Emulationstation is on Windows, so if I don't really lose performance by going the Windows route, I will do that, as I have no Linux experience, but if I can gain performance by using Linux, I have no problem learning Linux. In any case as far as storage, I would take out the included 8GB SSD, and replace it with a 2TB 2.5" drive via SATA male to female cable. I would also increase the RAM to 4GB.
  11. Thanks for the reply. I am not that worried about N64, but I figured since Original Xboz runs N64 pretty decent, why not give it a go with my thin client? I would be happy if arcade, PSX, and other 32bit/16bit/8bit systems worked well using Retroarch. I have no experience with Linux, but I was thinking of going the Lubuntu + Retropie route, as I have read that this would be better than Windows (and even though Emulationstation is on Windows, isn't as up to date). It would probably finally get me learning more about Linux. At very least, I will probably add another 2GB of RAM.
  12. Ok, fair enough, but what would be the best course of action to install Retropie/Emulationstation on this thin client? Also, how can I extract the contents of many of of the Raspberry Pi 3 .img images ? Also, check this link out where someone turns this thin client into a gaming PC: https://youtu.be/hOLf7yJ8oB0 Looks like it has some good horsepower!
  13. Please delete. Sorry for the double post! Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  14. I got fed up with Raspberry Pi 3B and it's poor performance with N64 and PSP emulation. I just got a Dell WYSE Z90S7P thin client from a buddy of mine after an upgrade. Here are the specs: Chipset: AMD G-T56N CPU: 1.6GHz GPU: Radeon HD 6320 RAM: 2GB PC3-10600 SSD: 4GB Flash It seems to have a lot of potential due to it having plenty of expansion options, and I have seen a couple of YouTube videos as far as it running Windows, but I would really like to run RetroPie/Emulationstation, since I love the interface and themes. I was wondering what would be the best distro of Linux, and the best way to install it? I also want to replace the 4GB SSD with a 2TB 2.5" HDD via the SATA via a male to female SATA cable. Finally, I have several .img files for use with Raspberry Pi 3B/3B+, so is there a way to extract the games/emus/artwork for those images for use with this thin client?

  15. I do both emulation and actual systems. Sometimes, I will play emus on my Original Xbox, other times on my Raspberry Pi3. When I am feeling really nostalgic, I use my SNES or RGB NES on my Sony PVM. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
