Brad_from_the_80s Posted February 7, 2021 Author Share Posted February 7, 2021 Just reading the past page or two. Looks like you guys have been busy. rocketfan I thought about replying to a couple of your posts, but it looks like you are already covering a lot old ground, and some of this it has been a while since I looked at it anyway, but let me know if you have any questions. I did setup a working build toolchain, using buildroot I think, for AFB9. Using a version with matching kernel/glibc I could compile and test working binaries for the FB9. For the AFBX I saw the similarities and differences, but never dug much deeper beyond just porting my cfw hack and making it work on the X. Although I prefer the SD card, the X should be easier to hack just because you can actually connect to it without some dicey mod. My assumption is the retromenu app is essentially the same or only slightly customized across different AtGames devices of roughly the same generation. And the hardware is likely also nearly the same, retroplayer is a common component, so it makes total sense you can force some of these other cores to run on the AFB. You'll see in the file system they are a bit messy and leave behind test and config files that are not specifically applicable to the AFB, but some other system. It's essentially just a crappy little SDL app, but it is amazing the degree to which Draxxon has been able to hack and theme it, and now you're potentially taking it to another level. Just takes a willingness to hack the binary until you no longer can without breaking it. Good catch on the writable /tmp idea though. My idea was always that I could write a better menu app that works any way we want it to and supports easily configurable organization, if it were worth it. And that would be to getting Stella 6 core to run first, which has been a challenge. I'm an old programmer but when it comes to Linux I'm more of a hack, so I've poked and prodded and had some ideas, but not that final breakthrough. Work and life and all that gets in the way of chasing rabbit holes eventually. ? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
