Oh sheeeeit

Yeah, I'm definitely in on this one. The RP3+ is the best emulation handheld I've had so far and I buy most of them to try out. So one with more oomph?! Yes plz

Still in that sweet spot of price point too. The Ayn Odin is badass but $$$. This is just right to me for something to toss around.

I think it'll be fine unless you are only playing upscaled PS2 all the time

True. Just for a bit more you can go big. I just love my RP3+, so I am stoked for an upgrade. I mainly play PSP on it, and a few games have hiccups at 3X, so I am excited to play around with this. Also with PS2.

Had this in hand a few days now and I really love it. I'm playing GB, GBC, GG and Pico-8 on it. Dedicated to those systems, and vertical arcade shmups. Which look and play amazing on this screen.

For under a hundred bucks, this thing is badass. Ordered some white Joycons to swap out with the black as well after seeing some peeps on IG do the same.

on Powkiddy RGB30 is it possible to install Watara Supervision or Gamate emulator ?
I search square screen console for this type of games only.

Edit : I have see we can install JELOS or ArkOS on it but I don't know wich emulator work on this hardware..

Oh wow, man. I know you can - but I never went down that rabbit hole as the effort didn't seem worth it for me.

Anbernic RG ARC on steroid


TheRA ARC



download


I tried quickly and successfully on FBNeo
Demon Front
Wild West COW-BOYS of Moo Mesa
Ultimate Mortal Kombat
Street Fighter III 3rd Strike
DoDonpachi III
Progear
Vendetta

it's very smooth with The Retro Arena (TheRA ARC).

no success for Deathsmiles because it's old build of FBNeo and it can't run this game, but I think RG ARC can do easily

Where’s a good trusted place to buy an RG-ARC-D? Birthday is coming up, so I want to look for ideas.
