  1. I was able to get workbench 1.3 running on it, along with Lemmings and Secret of Monkey Island. Yeah, it's pretty easy using drag and drop. The only catch is that bios, overlays and .cfg files go in a hidden folder but it's in the root directory so it's easy to find once you know. I also think you have to run jzintv once before the hidden folder is created. I would definitely recommend using the custom firmware.
  2. Wow, been really busy this past week but I finally found some time here. I tried out several arcade games and overall they worked pretty good. There was a little bit of sound crackle in some games that I couldn't get to go away but fine otherwise. I can't say that games that run in a vertical orientation look the best but definitely good enough to play. The one game that did give me real issues was pole position because of the key mapping. It uses the dpad for steering, gas and brake and I was unable to change it. Here's some pictures of the games running. What do you think?
  3. I haven’t tried any Arcade games on there yet but I could load some up and see how they work. Do you have any in particular that you’d like to me to try? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. This is the PowKiddy V90. I got this little guy a little over 2 weeks ago now. I bought it for my kids so they could play some of the "good stuff" while we are on the go but it has quickly become my favorite handheld device. The form factor is awesome. It's really close to being exactly like the Gameboy Advance SP. You can close it up, throw it in a bag or pocket and not have to worry about it being damaged. They can be purchased between $35 and $40 normally and sometimes go on sale for less. I'm using a custom firmware on my V90. It uses the jzintv emulator for Intellivision emulation and it works very well. The system maps the d-pad to the intv disc, A is the enter key, B is the top side buttons, X is the bottom right side button, Y is the bottom left side button. Start switches the controller to second player (you get a "player 2 controls" in the upper left when you do this). R1 brings up the keypad and L1 brings up the keyboard. Finally, select brings up the emulator menu. In the emulator menu you can turn on or off sound, custom overlays, and transparency. You can change the position of the keypad/keyboard. You can look at the control layout, unfortunately you can not edit them. Reset the currently loaded rom and exit the emulator. Some of the fancier things you can do are add your own custom game art for when you highlight a rom in the main menu. You can also add custom overlays for the in game keypad. I added art for Treasure of Tarmin and Astrosmash and an overlay for Astrosmash. It does take a little bit of work to add Intellivision to this device but once it set-up I think it's very well worth it. You can remove the SD cad and put it in a card reader connected to a PC or Mac and everything is drag and drop from there. I really like that feature because it makes it easy to add roms and emulators and also to make a back-up of your system. I wouldn’t buy this just to play Intellivision but if you’re invested in playing systems from the 16-bit era and before then this would be a great option for you! I made a video of the game play on this device. You can check it out here. If you want a more in-depth review, you can check it out here. If you don't care for the form factor of this device but you like the way it operates then there are other options that will work the same as far as the system and emulation are concerned. They are the PowKiddy Q90, The PocketGo v1, and Bittboy.
  5. The audio has been perfect in every game I've tried. The only problem I've had is that it won't play my Ms. PacMan rom and I think that's because it uses an older version of jzintv. I'm thinking about making a short YouTube video and posting it here to show some of the features and how well it actually works.
  6. I might be a little late to the game here but I have something like this. I just recently purchased a PowKiddy V90 handheld console. It runs the same open linux system custom firmware as the Pocketgo and Bittboy Gameboy style handhelds. I was able to get 2 of them for just under $72 on aliexpress.com. It works great for everything up to the 16-bit generation. Although it struggles a little bit with some SNES titles. The 3 inch screen with the clamshell design is really nice though. I do have jzintv running on mine and it works really well for games that don't require a lot of rapid keypad input. It's a great way to play the best ever version of BurgerTime on the go.
  7. I picked this up at local retro gaming store. I never thought I'd collect for the Aquarius but I'm definitely in it now. Any ideas what this might be worth? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I'd like to reserve a copy. Any number is fine. Thanks, Nate Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I'm going and would like a badge if there's a second run. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. So I was at my local retro game store and I found this copy of learning fun 2 just sitting on the self. I picked it up and flipped it over expecting to see a hefty price and about said "Are you f'ing kidding me" out loud when I seen the 99¢ price tag. I couldn't believe it, such luck! Anyway, I just thought I'd share and maybe this could be a thread for people to share stories of their best finds.
  11. I have wondered who it was that sold the game to gamer's paradise. They obviously didn't know the value of what they had and I bet they got less than $40 for it. I would think it was probably more like $20-25. I'm not sure if I'm going to keep it. I'm definitely going to try it out before I even really consider selling it. If I like the game then it'll stay in my collection. If it's crap like freewheel claims then I just might sell it. Then again, even if it is crap, I might keep it just to be one of 30 people with a copy. You know, I bet there are probably less than 30 people with a copy because I'm sure Cmart and Rev probably have multiple copies each. [emoji12] Anyway, I've got 2 weeks left in Vegas then I'll be home to try this baby out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I definitely won this time in Vegas. I'm always on the hunt for a rare find and I've been disappointed so many times. It was about time it paid off. 😄 So, I guess I took a picture of the game in the case. It wasn't too hard to notice.
  13. Yeah, that's the place. I did check out the pinball hall of fame and you're right, there is a ton of awesomeness in there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Thanks! I'm still pretty pumped that I found it. [emoji1] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. If you really want to know what I paid for it. It was $10 to $15 more than the original price. Attached the picture that was supposed to be in the original post.
