Possibly the same screen used for the AT Games SEGA Portables. Some have had complaints about the sound not being 100% accurate. Some have received units with a scratched screen - Note: there is a protective film placed on the screen which needs to be removed. SD Card must be 8GB or smaller to work with the unit. Some SD cards under 1GB have not worked properly. The SD Card must be FAT formatted. Try using: https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/eula_windows/index.html ROMs/bin's must be in a folder entitled "Game" (first letter must be capitalized) and all games inside the folder must be in .bin format. (NOT .rom, .zip, or .a26) Each title must be first letter capitalized - no other capitalized letters within the file name or the unit will not recognize the bin. (I.E. - Combat.bin) You can use periods, commas, etc. within the file titles too. If you're on a mac and having trouble with ._ files messing up your SD card layout, another way to fix it is to use this program: http://pixelchimp.net/blog/pixel-chimp/clean-invisible-mac-files Paddle games do not work accurately with the D-pad, such as Kaboom!, Warlords, Breakout, etc. Two player games can't be played since there are no "Player 2" controls, such as Combat, Outlaw, etc. The SD card menu tops out at 103 pages x 10 titles per page = 1030 possible games to add. To sort them on the SD card try using: http://www.anerty.net/software/file/DriveSort/?lang=en No Supercharger games work on the unit. Contains some built-in homebrews games from Good Deal Games. No known protective cases for the unit. (Yet?) Buttons: "P" - Pause button! "L" - Left difficulty switch "T" - TV color/black & white switch - Note: Does not stay on black & white if the button is released. "S" - Select switch "R" - Right difficulty switch "A" - Fire button Homemade modifications owners have done already: One has been modified with a larger speaker on the back of the unit. (Same unit above) modified to use a Bluetooth speaker for clearer sound One has been modified with an actual Atari Joystick 9 pin port in the bottom of it Atari Flashback Portable Compatibility List for ROMs can be found here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1dN1l_iw3N4lJ69Wq2cqoLGKAxbo-gHLMohrhlSHwYNI/ (I have been testing homebrew ROMs for the AFP and adding them to this list) ROM/bin Modifications: 1st known ROM modified: Crash Course (homebrew game) - removed title screen so that the game would play 2nd known ROM modified: RealSports Tennis (court color changed so that the tennis ball can be seen better on the screen) To run a hardware test: Hold down buttons: S, R, & A, while turning on the unit. Then a menu appears to test any of the buttons on the unit. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- My review.... Pros: Atari in my pocket is awesome! The price is awesome too! SD card feature is amazing, though finding an SD card less than 8GB in stores today is hard. No problems loading them onto the card. Most of the ROMs I really wanted to work, do. Ice Hockey, Chopper Command, River Raid, Frogger, Pole Position, Ms. Pac-Man, etc. and alot of the homebrews do too! Rechargeable battery > 2 AA batteries. Not sure on the battery life yet, only had to recharge it once so far. Haven't tried the A/V out, but that's a nice feature. Still need to get the cord. Pause button for any game, is a plus. Cons: LCD screen is pretty tiny..... or are we getting older (hard on the eyes). Its odd playing Atari without the classic joystick, but the D-pad shape makes it a bit too easy to inadvertently move left or right when the intended direction of movement is up or down, when you're not use to a D-pad controller. Sound can be off from original, though headphones do help. Not sure why the ROM files aren't sorted alphabetically when I pull up the SD card browser on the unit. Would be great to be able to make ROM subfolders. (Action, Sports, Arcade, etc.) Would be awesome to be able to hook up a paddle controller for paddle games.
  13. Yes they are! 1001 working ROM's in alphabetical order, no ".bin" showing on the screen, and the one incorrect ROM I mistakenly included on the ROM pack floating around the net, is fixed too. I have come up with 24 newer (2018-2019) homebrews that work on the AFP and can include these too (they will be listed after the 1001 A-Z ROMs on the screen).

    Atari Flashback Blast!

    I won one of these from AtGames the day after Christmas! I thought the batteries in the handheld would be sufficient enough to power the unit completely. But to plug in the dongle with an AC adapter behind the TV makes it difficult to use on a regular basis. Maybe if they make the dongle rechargeable?? I ended up selecting the Activision Blast unit. I love the rewind feature!

    upcoming Atari Homebrew games book

    I'm currently in the middle of writing a book called "The Unauthorized Atari 2600 Homebrew Companion - Volume 1". I am writing it based on the same style as Michael D Salzman's Atari books - currently available on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=dp_byline_sr_book_1?ie=UTF8&text=Michael+D+Salzman&search-alias=books&field-author=Michael+D+Salzman&sort=relevancerank , in the same look and feel of the 80's video game books - black and white print in the small digest size book. For each homebrew game title, I am listing the following info: Release Notes Gameplay Options Controls Scoring Design Strategy Analysis along with 2 screenshots of each game (possibly picture of cartridge label - if there is room for it, I have about 4 pages for each title to work with) I have the first 30 or so titles chosen for volume 1 (about 11 titles are already written), along with a definitions page, and will be adding a "What is a homebrew?" explanation section at the beginning of the book. Is there something I'm missing? Or something that you would like to see contained it in?? This is my first ever attempt at writing a book and if it wasn't for Michael, I wouldn't even be entertaining a thought of this type of project! Thanks for any info! Brian "Arenafoot"
