It arrived yesterday, but so far I'm very disappointed. The performance is much worse than my 9 Gold. I'm wondering if it's just this firmware, or if it's like this on all Xs. My firmware is v0.1.7. After playing around with the X for a while, I tried my 9 Gold again just to make sure it wasn't just my memory playing tricks on me. And yep, the 9 Gold definitely plays MUCH better than my X. I'm looking forward to what comes out of the custom firmware for it, because I really have no reason to keep this one as-is. - Wired controllers vs the awesome wireless ones of the 9 Gold... - Bad lag of the X Deluxe and dropped frames in emulation vs the responsiveness and smooth emulation of the 9 Gold... I can hardly wait to flash this X unit. As a test I tried editing the retromenu.ini and see if I could get River Raid running more smooth. (Thats the one game I'm familiar with and deff notice the "dropped frames" on that game.) I also turned on the On Screen Display and watched the Frames Per Second counter. When you first start a game, it dips to 40 fps, and then jumps to 60 pretty quick. but, if you use rewind, when you return to gameplay, it dips back down to 40. Sometimes, out of nowhere it dips to 40 long after you used rewind last. If you rewind a lot, it happens a lot. I disabled rewind and it runs at a smooth 60fps. I did see it dip a time or two to 40fps, but not nearly as often. And I want to say it was on the same part of a stage every time. I realize the AFB9 had rewind also, so Im not sure what gives. I wonder if the rewind feature itself is different. I'll mess with it some more, and let you know.
