Brad_from_the_80s Posted January 14 Share Posted January 14 Greetings Atarians... As before, I have created a new CFW for the new AtGames Atari Flashback 50th Anniversary Edition. With an OTG cable and USB storage device this allows you to dump the /rom partition to USB and customize it with new roms and boxart as you like or possibly run a package like Nexus. It works the same was as before. The presence of "mount_sd.ini" file in the root of your USB storage device will trigger the dump and remapping of /rom to USB. The /emulator has been modified to use all-games.ini file located in /rom as before. FULL DISCLOSURE: This CFW is for the GOLD 50th Anniversary Edition. I do not have a non-Gold unit to dump firmware or test with. If you have a non-Gold unit then this CFW will probably just turn it into a Gold edition without the included paddles. However, as always, USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. I tested this briefly on my own AFB50 Gold, flashing the firmware and adding Pac-Man to the UI, and everything worked fine. But I have not tested any more than that as I still prefer my AFB9. The attachment includes the custom firmware image, the mount_sd.ini flag file, and a sample custom startup script that dumps the /emulator partition to USB and executes from there. There are a couple of curious new binaries in /emulator, which may have to do with APL support, but nothing to really worry about. Flashing process is the same as with the prior Flashback X (which this device is almost identical to). Place the "atari_update.img" file in the root of attached USB storage device and power on the unit to flash it, then delete the firmware file. Please refer to the earlier thread: NOTE: Like before, depending on the read/write speed of your USB device you may have to be patient on the initial dump, or delete any broken files and try again if you have issues. Smaller storage devices of only a few GB are preferable, as the unit may not be able to read very large thumb drives. Also of note and probably mentioned elsewhere, the basic support for a /Games folder for .a26 files on a USB device is supported by the new units right out of the box. Enjoy!
