  1. Thank you for continuing to update the packs! Do you have a family-friendly version of the all-games.ini file for this pack?
  2. Thank you! I really appreciate this. My son is five and enjoys the Atari a lot now that it has so many games. He also dances to the new background music . I'm planning to give one to my nephews, as well.
  3. Thank you very much for this. I am using it along with v3 of the Sans Boom theme and love it. I have just one question. If I want to delete some roms, do I also need to edit the ini file? I am looking to make this kid friendly, and games like Beat 'Em and Eat 'Em have to go
  4. And here is the FBX Deluxe. The regular and deluxe versions use the same board and are identical to the point that a regular one can be crossflashed to the deluxe firmware.
  5. Sorry, I just now got back on here and saw your message. I will work on getting pics tonight and post them tonight or tomorrow.
  6. I just picked up a cheap FB9 Gold on eBay. I’m going to open it up and examine the boards to see if there are any components connected to that antenna that are missing on the FBX Deluxe’s board. I suppose before doing any of that, I will simply put batteries in the controllers and see if the FBX Deluxe picks them up. Who knows? Maybe it’s already built for them but shipped with wired ones to cut costs.
  7. Try a different cable. Mine was very touchy, but it worked with the third cable I tried.
  8. I was looking at a teardown of a FB9 Gold and noticed a structure labeled "antenna" on the mainboard that is identical to something I noticed on the FBX deluxe. It may be possible for someone with expertise beyond mine to enable bluetooth on this and get the wireless controllers from the FB9 Gold to work with the X. I am not sure if the X has the radio on the board (don't even know what to look for).
  9. Thank you. I like the cleaner look of the solid black cords, so that one looks nice.
  10. They seem to be very helpful to the community. May I ask one more question? What cable did you use to add the thumb drive? I have seen a few that have been confirmed to work, but they all add more ports than needed. I am looking for one that simply splits to one USB port and a pass-through for the power.
  11. That is great to know! Thank you for the reply. I was hesitant to update because I thought it might break the ability to hack it somehow. I much prefer using official firmware, so this is great. Edit: After downloading the update from ATGames, it appears they used the same method as the hack to enable the USB port. They even lifted the guy's pictures and used them in their firmware update guide!
  12. Just curious if the hack to play additional games is still necessary? I see on the official firmware release notes page they have enabled add-ons from the USB in the latest update. Is anyone who updated their firmware able to confirm this? I only see the USB info in the notes on the Deluxe version of the X. https://firmwareupdate.atgames.net/release-notes
  13. Bumping for those who might have missed it. It got a bit bogged down by talk of other setups, which was not my intention. The original post explains a simple method for hooking up quality wireless controllers with no work required.
  14. My guess is that 8Bitdo will develop a receiver for DB9 ports in the next year or so. The adapter cable from Raphnet simply allows us to use BT controllers on an Atari now instead of waiting on 8Bitdo to make the DB9 receiver. The beauty of using 8Bitdo controllers is that the same controller may be used across multiple platforms. The only product specific to the console is the receiver. Currently, I use the NES30 controller on my NES, SNES, and Atari systems. Your idea would be great for purists who want Atari-style BT controllers, but many people are already going to great lengths to adapt original NES pads to Atari. This gets them there quickly, easily, and wirelessly.
