Recently I have been sent an RG351M, as a result I have ported Retro Arena to this device, this build features Moonlight, video playback from ES directly, About 90 different systems and 20 ports so far. I have rebuilt the flycast32 core to have the rumble feature, as I found some titles play better using this core than the 64 bit version. The SD will auto expand on the first boot. Future images will be smaller in file size, I tried to shrink this image and it was giving me some trouble, it would fit on a 16gb card normally but have very little room for anything else, so you are better off to use 32gb at minimum anyways.
This is not the only device the company has sent me to work on, I will also be doing a build for the 350 unit and another device or two that I will leave as secret for now. Stay tuned for builds and more information!
Recently I have begun tinkering with the RG350M and 280V from Anbernic. These are mips32 based systems, running a 1.0 GHz single core CPU. Currently with Retro Arena I have both Emulationstation and Simple Menu running, but I have not decided on a final front end as of yet, Using stable branch on the RG350M has allowed me to use the work in progress RetroArch 1.9.0. This build on the 350M has 110 ports and 50 systems currently, and I am working to add more, the 280V build is similar in size and capability due to it using stock as well and having the same hardware, a video can be found below.
The first Beta images for RG350 and RG280 are uploading now.
These images will boot right into Simple Menu and you will never see GXMenu unless you need to. To get to GX you press start, navigate to where it says use as launcher and switch it to no, then you may navigate up to quit and exit to GX. As long as Simple Menu is set as launcher you will never see GX, in the event of a crash Simple Menu just relaunches itself.
**If you load your games onto the external SD and notice they don't show up, you need to leave Simple Menu and open Dingux Commander(the file manager).
Navigate to /usr/loca/home/.simplemenu and enter the tmp folder, press y followed by select all, and then b followed by delete to remove all the .tmp files, these are what stores said data. After this step you may relaunch Simple Menu.
Boxart must be placed in the folder with the roms for said system, in a subfolder named boxart. Ensure the naming matches.
Retroarch can be launched from Simple Menu under the apps listing.

This is my second firmware release for the Pocket Go S30 Device, it has 3 themes in it. Jetup made the Robust theme and Gubot made the other 2. Retro Game Corps made the first update pack which brought this unit from about 12 systems to 25, and now I am releasing another update pack which includes his pack, and adds 50 more systems and ports. Bkacjios also deserves thanks for his help getting retroarch gui to be rotated correctly and support l2, r2 and joystick.
You can find things like Doom, Outrun, Wolfenstein and several other ports, along with new systems like SNES MSU-1 and Neo Geo CD, among many others. You simply add your games and your bios (of systems and games you own) by placing the SD card in your PC. Please note this is a full setup and you can drag and drop it to the root of a fat32 formatted micro sd card and use it after adding games/bios. The filesystem structure of this build has changed, as such there is now a retroarch folder at the root, and the cores/bios go there. Bios belong in the system folder, cores in cores. You can also find your save states and game saves in their folders. PSX has been moved to Retroarch and now supports save states. If you have issues moving too slow on Parallel or Mupen, open the RetroArch menu, go to settings, then input, and increase analog sensitivity and deadzone.
If you have issues pressing select as the coin button, press power to open the RetroArch GUI, go to settings, input, and remap start and select by pressing a on the icon and then pressing the button select. Do not touch the joystick settings, feel free to remap anything else. If you with to make the RetroArch GUI bigger, navigate to settings, user interface, appearance, and change menu layout to handheld for xmb. For LGUI it is user interface, appearance, menu scale factor. Do not use ozone. The other three are ok.
PocketGoS30RetroArchGUI.rar is the base package, there is also an important update package, to install that simply drag and drop to the root of your SD and allow it to overwrite all files, then delete the .cfg files from /bin on your sd as they are now in the retroarch folder. This will also add a couple of new systems, and the retroarch assets for the GUI. There is a read me in the zip.
I hope you enjoy this release!
