  1. I ended up deleting the emulators, then Ftp'ing new ones from another Xbox softmodded by someone else. When I configure the new ones to show screenshots, they actually show xmv preview movies, so go figure. Still better than nothing though. It's weird that a feature as simple as showing different media at the game select screen can be this troublesome. Overall, the emulators are pretty solid, even if there are some glitches. Like they all play the background music even after you tell it not to. Hearing the same 30 second song was annoying so I deleted the mp3 just to be done with it. Anyway, I will probably figure out how to show box art by accident some day. Thanks for reading.
  2. I own a couple of original Xboxes that were softmodded by other people. Overtime I’ve learned to mod them myself and I can get Coinops running no problem. I prefer Neogenesis for playing Genesis, but I can’t get the box art or movies to show on the game select screen. They would appear on the other Xboxes, but when I copied over Neogenesis (via FTP) to my new Xbox, that feature stopped working. Everything else works great, and I made no changes, even using the same partition letter. I’ve gone through all the config files and directories with no luck, although I can get screenshots to appear. A web search hasn’t turned up anything either. I’ve had the same issue with Z26 and the NES emulator for Xbox too. Makes me think there is something simple I am not understanding. Thank you for any help.
  3. My 2 wishes: 1. The D-pad that came out with the first Atari portable (2016) was adequate. The more recent one (2017?) with Pacman on the box art is not as good, especially with diagonal movement. This makes Crystal Castles much more difficult than usual. 2. Some kind of wood grain effect Looking forward to buying the next version. There is no greater feeling than going on lunch break with almost every Atari 2600 game ever made to choose from!
  4. I'd like to recommend the HD retrovision cable and required adaptor for the PS1. Together they go for $80. If the best S-Video connection from a TV to your PS1 rates a B+ on an academic scale, the HD retrovision rates an A-. There is an incremental difference that you won't notice on all games, but when you do there is a touch more definition and some of the PS1 fuzz goes away. This is probably not worth it for someone who occasionally plays PS1 games; they should utilize the backwards compatible PS2 or PS3. But some games like Vigilante 8 are not 100% compatible, and only the older PS1's have parallel ports for gamesharks. And I don't think PS2 cd lasers are very robust.
  5. Or you can be a news regurgitating video game youtuber and essentially steal the content of Kotaku's article and make money with views, without citing your source. I've unsubbed them and hidden from my recommendations but a few still slip by. This is wrong and I can't believe none of these guys have ever been sued, to my knowledge. Maybe not $100k, but a lot of these guys do YouTube full time.
  6. Maybe I missed it but I don't see whether your Xbox is soft modded, is chipped or TSOP flashed/whatever. If it's soft modded, I believe if the buyer accidentally updates Xbox Live, it will overwrite the mod. I know on an Xbox I modded I popped in Tron Killer App, and I thought I was being careful, but somehow it did the update and I had to fix it.
  7. Will there be annual iterations of the Legends Flashback Boom? 50 great games to start, then the latest firmware upgrade made GEN, NES, SEGA CD, MAME 2000, etc. playable through SD card. It's a fantastic value and IMO gives the Super RetroCade a run for its money, especially considering you can play with Genesis controllers. The most common suggestion I've seen here is having PNG images go with the games on the SD card. Then maybe the Legends would be like the Atari FB is, where each year has a slightly different game lineup.
  8. I believe not, or if so, no one has figured out how to do it (to my knowledge).
  9. I just finished testing all 1600 or however many MAME 2000 roms form the complete set. When you factor in I don't like fighters or sports, I am left with approx. 600 games that work really well and that I really want to play. And I haven't even tried FBA yet. Can't thank you enough, rmr_md.
  10. Just wanted to give a quick word of thanks for this and your command prompt method for changing file extension names. Before this, I would do this all by hand. Much appreciated.
  11. Figured out what I was doing wrong. Kind of new to MAME, so didn't realize that not all arcade roms are the same. I had tried using a set that was made available for the Super Retro Cade, but now I understand the rom set needs to be specific to MAME 2000. Thanks for your patience.
  12. I've tried 5 arcade roms (including Simpsons) -with rmr_md's firmware. I changed the extensions from zip to .zim, then dropped them in the GAME folder. They appear in the SD Card menu, but when I select them, there is a brief pause, then the screen returns to the Legends main menu. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong? Sega Master System and Game Gear worked like a charm though. Much appreciated, rmr_md!
  13. How did you format your SD card? In one of the threads here Flojo Mojo provided a link to 3rd party software. Sometimes right-clicking and selecting format in Windows won't make the card compatible. And what kind of card are you using? You may wish to review the threads from the At Games sub-folder; a lot of other people were having issues and most solved them.
  14. I am NOT an expert but this is what I do and it seems to work. Have all the files ready to go on your pc or somewhere other than your card. In Windows Explorer, click the name column to make sure they're alphabetically sorted, a on top to z on bottom. Then click on the file at the very bottom. Scroll back up to the 2nd file, hold shift and click that. Then finally, hit CTRL and click the topmost file. Now that all the files are selected, hit CTRL C to copy, then paste on your card.
  15. I haven't heard that anyone has opened this up yet. At this point, I'm willing to experiment at the risk of bricking it, even though I have almost no expertise. When I plug the USB Micro into my PC, I can't look into it, it just powers on. I am hoping that maybe this is like the most recent HD At Games Genesis flashback where if it's opened up, you can get in that way. But if anyone knows a way I can peek by using an SD card or the micro-USB power connection, please let me know. My goal would be to see how much memory is on the unit, then remove some games, add some others with artwork and descriptions. Again, I would guess that HD Genesis hacking videos might be helpful since I think the Legends were intended to be Genesis models at one point.
