    Funny this should get bumped, I'm actually waiting for UPS to bring me a GPD XD today. I knew the XD+ was coming but I'm impatient.

    I got tired of dicking around with Pi handhelds that had various issues, so when I was pricing out parts to build a new one I got north of $100 and thought "Why not just buy a GPD with a better screen and more power?"

    !!


    Nice!


    I have been eyeing a GPD XD, and I might go for the Plus model when it's available.

    The built in emulators and software was complete garbage, Super Mario World was very laggy. I loaded the Legacy rom which is basically stock Android with Google Play and loaded my own emulators. It's great now that I have it (mostly) configured.

    Nice Gohan. How is the Dpad on the thing for fighting games? I have the GPD win and love it but the dpad is awful for fighting games. Even with that I would highly rexommend the GPD Win. I might pick up a XD if the dpad isany good.

    The dpad is good for most games, but not fighters. I can't get supers out reliably. I've actually been playing Match of the Millennium using the analog stick, since there isn't much movement it works fairly well.

    Ok, thanks. I figured as much. I do the same thing with fighters using the analogue on the gpd win. Kinda silly but it works like you said. I guess it's the same dpad and membranes used for both handhelds. Glad you're enjoying it.

    I also found a plastic grip thing that is made for the New 3ds xl but fits this thing perfectly, it lets me play for a long time without old man Arthur bothering me. I need to trim some plastic on the top though since it covers up the headphone jack.

    From the maker of Raspiboy comes the RetroStone - now on Kickstarter:

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...gaming-console

    Seems people didn't like having to assemble the raspiboy themselves, so this one is shipped out completed. Also, it's considerably more powerful than the raspberry pi zero (the pi board used in the raspiboy).

    I have no reason to get one now, but I do like the original game boy styling.

    Interesting, but I don't think I'm going to dick with Pi handhelds anymore until they stop dicking around with shitty composite screens.

    I got one of his Raspiboy's and was disappointed in it. The video on the thing was composite and blurry as fuck. This one looks better but meh. I did back Gameshell though and am looking forward to that one. Supposed to be shipping this April. The specs say its RGB...we'll see.

    I backed the Gameshell too. It's cheap enough to take a chance.

    The thing that bugs me with the Pi handhelds is that they can very easily use a 480p HDMI screen, they just don't because it's a little more expensive. With 480p the emulators would line double, and you could either add a soft filter or light scanlines and it would look great.

    It's definitely composite - hard pass

    Composite wouldn't even be so bad but the screens are just awful. I put a composite screen in my Game Gear once and it looked pretty darn good, but I don't have the foggiest idea what kind it was.

    It's crazy what the GPD Win 2 with a fan mod can do.

    Only Rot can judge me.

    I upgraded to the gpd win 2. It's super nice. I did modify the dpad on it with a 3ds pad. Makes games way more playable. It is a lot better build quality than the first one. Gives enough juice with the m3 processor an 8gb ram to allow for some decent pc gaming. I've been rocking kof xiii and xiv with no issues. sf4 plays fantastic, but don't expect sfV to run well. Rez runs like a dream and Area X runs alright with lower settings. Most emulators run fantastic on it as well. I have no issues with running Daytona 2 and SCUD in supermodel emulator. I actually use it more as a portable x68k and pc98 emu with midi on the go than anything, but even the first GPD WIN was good at that.

    Like the Shield portable this is really good at streaming with moonlight or steam if you have a good enough connection at home.
