Deunan is a stand-up guy yes. He's a bit ornery but follows through. I still feel like he should consider licensing and mass production, but that's his call. Rhea has too many bugs yet for me to go that route. I do have the GD-EMU, ordered direct.

 

I actually contacted him a really really long time ago. Before the project was even complete. We did talk about me helping with production and distribution. He even sent me a unit (for free) to try out, so it seemed at the time he was really interested. This was before there was a menu system for it. We actually showed it off at our booth at the 2014 Cleveland Classic & Arcade Gaming Show because it seemed (at the time) it was going to be something we would be carrying.

 

However, I am not 100% sure what happened, I think he stopped responding to my e-mails or maybe he got busy I don't remember for sure. However at the time I hadn't heard from him for quite awhile so the deal seemed dead in the water. So then Mnemo came out with his and since I had some experience with him at the time (because of the 3DO mods) and his had an actually menu system I switched my focus. I never heard from Deunan again. The reality is it seems some people are just comfortable making a few units and get some extra cash, which he kind of expressed to me as time went on before we stopped communicating. This is why I offered to take over the majority of the boring stuff, production and fulfillment. I don't have any hard feelings towards Deunan, things just petered out, may have partially been my doing. Maybe I will reach out to him again and see what is going on.

What bugs? I've been using a Rhea for 3 weeks now with no problems.

 

Not sure if the gd-rom game menu is similar to the Rhea's. I've figured out a way to organize with the Rhea menu system to display by genre, etc. See my post #259 on on page 13 of the Assembler forus thread. http://assemblergames.com/l/threads/official-rhea-discussion.57377/page-13

Compatibility I believe is still a work in progress, and aren't there a few Saturn iterations that won't work?

Just curious, compatibility with what? I know Bug! and Bug Too! don't work. Otherwise everything I've tried from Trurip runs fine. Images that are cue /multiple bin have to be converted, but that's an easy process.
