  1. I would agree with Atariboy here. Im guessing the Atari Flashback 11 will most likely be the same thing as the last unit. I'm guessing nothing will be changed at all, except maybe the built in games list. 

    I dont see them updating stella, returning the sd card slot (theyve said its not up to them.) I doubt they will improve HDMI or Paddle support. Only thing i see them updating, maybe, is the lazy/ugly menus and UI. Thats simple and long overdue.

    I know they dont seem to think so at atgames, but its time to make mini systems that actually look like they should. Its past time really. 7800 mini, 5200 mini, jaguar mini, all should have come out if possible. Same with Intellivision and ColecoVision or any other property they could license. People buy the mini units and put them on a shelf. They would have to have them.

  2. sorry so late. No clue how long, 15 minutes i would thing is plenty long, though. Youll know if when you try to load the dump folders on the next play if games and art is missing. or you can look in the rom and emulator folders and see if the files are present or corrupted.

    and dont worry because you can mess it up. If you didnt wait long enough and files are missing, just delete the rom and emulator folders and try again.

  3. update your console with its correct custom firmware update. put the control files that come with the firmware on your sd card all by themselves. nothing else. power on the system with the sd card inserted with the control files on the root and wait. wait a very long time. if you don't have rom or emulator folders on your sd card, the control files will dump the files on your system to the sd card. the games and art will be in the "rom" folder on your sd card afterwards.


  4. This is a pack that will convert your Legends Flashback 2019 to a Sega MasterSystem Flashback. It plays SG-1000, Mark-III, and MasterSystem games. If you already flashed your system for the ColecoVision pack you do NOT have to re-flash it. 

    Again, feedback would be awesome, I'm curious to know if real MasterSystem pads will work on this.

  5. Even with a 3.0 flash drive, the initial power on boot up is 30 seconds. I forget, but i think stock is like 10 or 12 seconds? The 2.0 drives are slow for dumping the partitions, loading individual games, flashing firmware and also for navigating the main game list. It's 30 seconds because there are 1100 games. remove games for less load time.


    If I'm following your question, the scripts only dump the rom and emulator partitions from the system to the flash drive if there is no rom or emulator folders present. If the folder/s are present on the drive, they will be loaded instead.

  6. So, I collect the various mini systems and like to hack them. I've been trying to figure out what to do with the 2019 Legends Flashback (100 Games, Standard Edition) unit I have. It has a few built in ColecoVision games and the emulator core. but you couldn't add more .cv games to it. until now.

    Please give feedback, and if someone could test if actual CV controllers of some type work, please. otherwise you have to use the on screen menu like the built in CV games do.

    instructions are inside the rar file.

  7. ATARIv1.0


    ATARIv1.1 (Update)


    This is for the flashback X but you can find my final pack in the "roms_pack" --> "North_America" folder. It will work on the AFB9. Not sure about the emulator folder "themes" tho. youll have to test them out.

  8. watching it back I also noticed...

    I always have "error with the drive" errors. even when I always eject them properly. Ive had issues rarely when I try to scan and fix the drive with the psx classic and the game list it generates, but never with the atgames units. but, I ignore it and I don't scan and fix it. best bet to avoid it, is start a fresh flash drive, put all the stuff you want to run on it, plug it in your flashback x, and don't plug it back into the computer. lol.

    You can probably just flash the custom firmware image from jump street and skip the official update. its virtually the same thing.

    the official firmware is also in the tools folder in the packs. same as found on atgames website. handy if you are not online or want to flash back to stock. important to learn where to find the official updates tho.


    the game_pack is a bunch of prebuilt "game" folders to load games the "old/stock" way. handy because the naming conventions are tricky to get them to work and its all set up. THIS is where you will run into the TOO MANY GAMES to load error. if you try and combine the two larger packs, or add a shit ton of your own roms. like 6000.


    the shizz takes 30 seconds to boot by design. a long while, but not too long. remove games to make it shorter. a real pain in the ass if you don't use the stock stick and reset the system on the console.

  9. some tips:


    there are two versions of the custom firmware for the two different flashback X units. regular and deluxe. you don't necessarily want the larger file, but the proper one for your unit. they are labeled if you scroll over on the folder names. if you flash the wrong one, no big deal, just flash the proper one in the end.

    You didn't wait long enough to dump the rom folder, if you launch a game and play a bit it helps to trigger the process. the second time it started with no games and art because they never got completely dumped. if you look in the newly created rom folder you can see if indeed all the games and art dumped, or if they are missing or corrupted art. You can just delete the rom folder and try again.

    when you restarted the startup file is telling the system to read the flashdrive. the unfinshed dump of the rom folder is now there so that's what it displays. but the system is fine. if you remove the flashdrive it boots as normal. again, its all on the flash drive.

    you can dump the rom and emulator folders at the same time. you don't have to dump them separate.


    after you update with the custom firmware, you can just put the control files and folders you want on the flashdrive. you don't have to dump anything at all. I put it in the instructions so people would learn how to do it and how it all works. if we skip that part and just put my files on the drive, you miss how its working.

    You did a great job. and your video will help a lot of people. you can only explain so much in text. it was hard to figure out and I wanted to be able to help others out. thanks for making the video!


    also nothing to be scared of, everything is on the flashdrive as far as custom stuff. the real hard part is the initial atgames update to get the otg support. if you mess up any of the steps for my files, just try again. nothing is put on the system after the 2 firmware updates.



    I just wanna say this is hard, but its not neo geo mini hard. Its tedious, not complicated. once you get past the initial otg update, its the same stuff we've been doing with the AFB9, LFB, etc. The best part is, its all on the flash drive. youre not fucking with the system at all. the custom firmware is just the official firmware with a tiny tweak to let you load from USB. that's it. if you jack up all your usb files, start over. no big deal. want to go to stock? remove the flash drive. no biggie. I feel like HackChi, and project lunar, autobleem type of stuff are more obtrusive and easier to fuck something up. with the atgames stuff, just reflash the unit, they are never really bricked by software updates. Trust me, ive hacked them all. this is no C64 mini custom carousel. lol. This IS the safest shit to tinker with. And least stressful too, if you jack up youre files, you can download the pack and move the files fast. these are smile files. just start over with my shit as a base. or dump a new rom folder as a base. whichever way you want to go. 1000 games or the stock games + a handful you add (pull them from the pack).

    want some REAL advice on this unit... be careful opening up the shell, don't fuck up your ribbon cable. If youre not a computer expert, use windows 7 machine to do the initial update.

  10. I removed the fifty games from the packs. To have them as well, dump the rom partition fresh, combine the 2 all-game ini files into one file. (cut and paste the new ini file text into the old one for example.) make sure you have all the roms in the rom folder. old ones and new ones. don't change the name of any files.


    or you could just remove the sd card and boot like normal and play them.

  11. yeah, you got it. that's what I have, a hacked standard 2019 and a hacked standard AFBX. AFBX can use sticks and paddles. 

    Legends tries to launch .bins and you get black screen because the sega emulator is trying to launch an Atari game. anything labeled as .bin will be opened with genplusgx by default. Which makes me think that Atari games MUST be .a26 extension on a deluxe model. (I don't have one.) It just makes all this more confusing when first figuring it all out. but yep, A2600 is Deluxe only, but you're better off going with an AFB9 or X for those games.


  12. And here is the Legends Ultimate Arcade Art Pack: It contains all the art from the LFB 2018 and 2019 standard. I have 6 of the 10 thumbnails from the deluxe versions extra 10 games (they are actually locked on the standard system) and 48 from the Legends Ultimate Arcade cabinet. Beastball, Eliminator Boat Duel, Hostages & Immortal are the missing thumbnails.
