I bought the 2017 model, and downloaded the "Arenafoot ROMset updated December 6, 2017". I didn't like the way the filenames looked when browsing them on the device, so I wrote a small Python script to pad the filenames with spaces, making them 17 characters long, so you never see the ".bin" extension.
I should have taken a "before" picture and an "after" picture to show the difference. Some people will agree with me it makes browsing the files nicer and cleaner; others won't care. So just use this image as the "before" and imagine the ".b" and ".bi" and ".bin" stuff gone for the "after".
Should I just upload an updated ROMset zip file, for people who don't already have Python installed and don't want to install it?
Oh, and regarding the AFP itself, the controls are bad. Pressing down on the d-pad sometimes registers as pressing left. This isn't just my unit; Another one purchased elsewhere by a friend had the same issue, although it was more severe and he ended up returning it.
Here's the script. It runs on all '.bin' files in the current directory. It seems I can't attach it, so here it is as text:
SCREEN_WIDTH_CHARS = 17
for filename in os.listdir("."):
(basename, ext) = os.path.splitext(os.path.basename(filename))
new_ext = ext.lower()
if (new_ext==".bin" and (len(basename) < SCREEN_WIDTH_CHARS or ext !=".bin")):
if (len(basename) < SCREEN_WIDTH_CHARS):
new_basename = basename + " " * (SCREEN_WIDTH_CHARS - len(basename))
new_basename = basename
os.rename(basename + ext, new_basename + new_ext)
