>>10254368Kinda the opposite, actually. Because it's a 3.5" screen the pixel density is pretty high, so it's still fairly clear.
Let me guess, you need more?
>>10254447I hate that I want one of these
>>10254452I hate that you want one too, /hhg/ - Handheld General (OP).
>>10254460Shh, I didn't forget to remove it. You're just seeing things.
>>10254410R35S, apparently its a "budget king", in other words it'll play starfox 2, I am about to pay 50 dollars to play starfox 2. What the fuck. It'll play psp and n64 maybe some dreamcast but honestly, Starfox 2 is what Im looking for.
>>10254505Just get the Analogue Pocket or the 405V
>>10254505Shit yeah I forgot to ask, how long does Aliexpress take to ship things? Is it like Amazon where you pay rush shipping and it shows up in the same box as your free shipping after gaslighting an arrival at 11:59pm two days before real arrival time?
>>10254469Discs are still read only though, at least the ones used in retail games are.
>>10254513Aliexpress like most Chinese things is a shit shoot. Sometimes they'll send same day, sometimes they'll take a few days.
>>10254461that's because you put it in the wrong spot. it should be in subject, the name field is for your own name.
>>10254505R35S is a complete piece of trash. there was one retarded clickbait video on it and now people are buying it for some reason. all the feedback I've seen has been units that are DOA or broken in some way.this is way below powkiddy level. no-name chink shit with stupid control placement and horrible software. even when it works it's a waste of money.
>>10254542yeah but that's not what rom is. rom specifically is hard wired memory chips.
Rom is a catch all term for downloadable game files
>>10254585specifically in emulation discussion, yeah, kinda. but when you're talking in terms of electronics or computers, it has a specific definition that definitely doesn't include CDs.
>>10254578>for some reasonProbably because it made the handheld look like the MM+ but better.
>>10254591ok but it was from an obviously dubious source. people need to learn to be critical of the information they see, particularly when it's presented in front of them by an algorithm that only cares about eyeball retention.
>>10254590>specifically in emulation discussionGuess that's why that's the context it was used in until some retard decided to misinterpret it as being about hardware for no discernible reason.
>>10254596>people need to learn to be critical of the information they seeSure but this is normalfags and redditors we're talking about
>>10254602well, it was first used to say "rom based vs disc based" last thread (which was a pretty clear meaning), to which someone replied "all systems are rom based" (which is clearly not correct in this context).nobody cares if you say you're downloading PS1 roms, but correcting someone who is specifically using rom to mean actual cartridges is retarded.
>>10254612I looked back on it and the first mention of discs was "for rom based systems it's true. for disk based systems not so much" which seems to have nothing to do with anything, regardless of the next retard's reply. People were talking about game files and just happened to call them all roms, which is a well understood contextual word but somebody decided to get nitpicky over terminology for basically no reason. That's like if some tendie was showing off her (formerly his) autism altar and said "these are all my Gameboys" and the other person who happens to be wearing a gas mask replied "actually that one is a Gameboy Advance SP." It's splitting hairs.
>>10254631i think we can agree that we don't actually give a shit yeah
has anybody ever bothered to make an in depth comparison list of all the chinkhelds?i want to see which ones are powerful enough for the gamecube, which ones have two analog sticks etc
>>10254642If you want gamecube, 405s and retroids are only going to get you like 15% of games and not all the good ones. Just get a deck.
>>10254663i already got a deck, i'm just wondering.considering the usual retro autism, i would have expected a list like that to already exist
>>10254663>are only going to get you like 15% of games and not all the good onesit's a lot more than that if you're willing to use pal roms and tinker to find the best emulators and settings, but yeah not amazing for pick up and play.>>10254642i don't think there's such a list. I think there's one for handheld PCs but not the lower powered chinkhelds. people here know what's on the market, so if you have a specific question we can probably answer.
>>10254691what's a good, cheap chinkheld for snes games?
>>10254697anbernic rg35xx is probably the cheapest I'd recommend. (miyoo mini plus as an alternative)someone will probably say SF2000 but it doesn't play the full SNES library perfectly.
>>10254590Not even CD-ROMs?
>>10254578>>10254509best one under 70 dollars? honestly im almost better off using my tablet but I just want a mobile gaming system that isnt a phone or so big it needs a backpack. Had a great meditative fake camping time with a tablet and a V90 tho'.
>>10254732These are discs, which have their own catch-all term "ISO" regardless of the actual underlying format. Not like you won't encounter "PSP ROM" though, it's just a matter of (not) having enough autism to (not) be triggered by retards being retarded. Same thing with "BIOS" btw.
>>10254737depends what you want to do. I'd probably still get an RG35XX, but the RK2023 is a solid option.>>10254732yes, when someone is talking about rom in terms of computers they never mean cd-rom. nobody calls a cd-rom a "rom" (apart from talking about an ido/disc image in the context of emulation as we established).
>>10254737Just get a controller for your phone. Even the shit under $70 costs over $70 due to shipping unless you can find it on amazon or something
>>10254450Interesting, but I bet it feels weird to hold in either orientation.
>>10254590>read only memorySounds like a CD-R to me
>>10254754It isn't, it's a wannabe cyberpunk troon game
>>10254739The extension .iso comes from the ISO 9660 standard for optical media, which is very often not actually used in game consoles. The extension just became a catchall for all discsI just find it weird that some people are desperate to be pedantic about not using 'rom' to talk about CDs because they aren't ROMs (even though they are) and yet insist on calling any disc image an 'iso' even when they aren't. If they're going to be pedantic, they could at least do everyone a favour and be correct.
>>10254542I feel like I should regret making this reply cause of all the dumb as fuck discoruse it's caused, but I also feel like if it wasn't roms, it'd be some other bullshit
>>10254814Imagine if cart(ridge)s caught on as the catch all term. Like I have a 150 GB folder full of PS2 carts.
>>10254776im just call them .img from now on
>>10254578Its literally just a hardware clone of that one powkiddy handheld that's also a hardware clone and it arrives dead because of shit sd cards. Flashing 351p firmwares to good sd card fixes the problem. Which older powkiddy's used to have. Taki only shilled it thanks to the handheld shitcord and in hopes of the company listening to his advide.
>>10254749What fucking ali store are you using?
Once upon a time I bought a GPD XD. Loved that thing, I didn't use it for emulation, but Android ports of Sonic, Ys, FF and the RayGames played fantastically on it. It's probably the best experience I've had on the mobile platform period.Of course, one day I spilled some water on it, and the Touch Screen stopped working. Then I attempted to do repairs on it myself, which resulted in multiple buttons falling off and getting lost. I've since replaced it with a LG V20 w/Telescopic Controller (Who's Wifi died after downloading my game collections), but I still have a soft spot for the GPD, even if I don't use it anymore.
>>10254914Cloest is the v3 version of the x18s for clamshells. Dont fall for the flop meme.
>>10254918The Flip is literally just a better XD, and it doesn't have the risk of randomly dying on you.
aiiiieeeee my hinges are snapping on their own
KTR1 update: Nil is releasing new buttons 'in 2-3 weeks' as a response to complaints that the dpad is bad and the buttons keep sticking. Someone got so frustrated with their dpad they hacked it up with a dremel because it was inexplicably designed to mate with the case and not be able to pivot.
>>10254921>Worse buttons>Worse hinge for even the update models>Worse fucking speakers."Siiiiiiiiiiips" totes mcgoats worse than the flop in every way choy.
>>10254938>better button placement >better screen>better hardware>battery doesn't kill itself if you use a charger it doesn't like :((Yes. Better in every way that matters.
>>10254961>Button placement doesnt matter since the buttons are shit>Screen is a cope when the v3 x18s has a better screen than retroid>Ill give you hardware.>Supports fast chargers which fuck with the batteries. (Powkiddy doesnt do this)Yep yup yepper puppers. Im thinkin gpd fucking WON and the gpds will be the final chinkpill.
>>10254452I have one. I don't think that I would recommend it. The openFPGA cores implementation feels jankier than any of the Chinese emulation handhelds that I own, the built-in save state functionality is unreliable, and there are constant complaints from people about Pokemon saves being wiped (I don't play Pokemon, but that is still disconcerting). It feels like these are problems that could be worked out, but software updates for this thing come out at a snail's pace.
>>10255010Also, to clarify: The people who are getting their Pokemon saves wiped are mostly using actual cartridges, but I have heard similar stories from people playing Pokemon on the openFPGA cores.
>>10255032>>10255010>The people who are getting their Pokemon saves wiped are mostly using actual cartridgesMost of my AP shitting has been like, half-joking, but if that's true then it's literally the worst possible way to play Gameboy games.
>>10255056If it were just one or two reports here or there, I'd write them off as people using bad carts or just being retarded, but it seems like a very common problem, to the extent that it is being commonly recommended that you use one of those cartridge save backup devices if you plan to play Pokemon on them. I haven't seen reports of this happening with non-Pokemon games, so I am wondering if it might be an issue with the RTC in the GBC games or something.
just bought this lot for 85 buckers
>>10255068Maybe, but I feel like if that were the case, you'd just be getting those "Internal battery has run dry" errors. Either way, when a system who's big selling point is "play your original cartridges" risks wiping the save games from those same cartridges, I'd honestly just cut my losses and get a GBA SP
>>10255068no this is actually because of the amazing accuracy of FPGA hardware emulation, it's soooo accurate that it even includes the little known glitch in the original game boy hardware that starts erasing saves after it detects you posted a main menu pic on reddit.
>>10255073seems expensive unless you specifically wanted an ugly pokemon bag.hack it and enjoy.
>>10255084That bag isn't ugly it's peak 90s
>>10255087oh you're a /fa/ poster who wears ugly shit ironically and wonder why girls don't talk to you
Can Ally or deck do switch games and elden ring on 1080p 60fps with a low tdp?
>>10255093I would never wear it outside, it's just a nice storage bag.
>>10255104>elden ring on 1080p 60fps with a low tdplmao no. the ally can get 60fps at 720p at fucking 30 watts. Handheld PCs are probably at least 3 years off from what you're looking for.
>>10255113>I would never wear it outsideThat's a suspiciously specific denial
720p (HD):Optimal Screen Size: 3-15"This range includes small tablets, large phones, and smaller portable screens. Beyond 15", the softness of the resolution becomes more evident, especially in text-heavy content.1080p (Full HD):Optimal Screen Size: 15-27"This covers most computer monitors and smaller TVs. Many smartphones also use this resolution, although at that size, the clarity benefits over 720p are less dramatic. At the upper end (around 27"), you may start to see individual pixels when sitting closer.1440p (Quad HD):Optimal Screen Size: 24-32"Commonly found in high-end smartphones and gaming monitors. At smaller sizes, the difference over 1080p might not be as noticeable, but as you approach larger monitor sizes, the increased clarity becomes evident.4K (Ultra HD):Optimal Screen Size: 32-65"Beyond 65", while 4K still looks good, there might be benefits in moving to even higher resolutions like 8K, especially if viewers sit very close. Conversely, below 32", the advantages of 4K over 1440p or even 1080p become less pronounced for general content consumption.
>>10255137What about the 'eck?
>>10255156A Deck is obviously weaker than the ally. iirc it was like 40fps and 540p at 15w.
>>10255158So either Ally or wait
>>10255167Playing at 30w is a miserable experience, so if you need it at 60fps, definitely wait imo. If you need it at 60fps AND 1080p, there's no option atm.
>>10255173I can go down to 720p if it's a stable 60fps according to this guy >>10255152Unless he's just talking out his ass
>>10255201720p on a handheld is fine imo. Certainly not as good as 1080p, but it's totally fine. If you want that as sane TDP, it might happen in 2 years. Maybe. Regardless some anon on here said the chips next year (8800u?) are going to be a big leap compared to 6800u -> 7800u. If you don't know what the fuck I'm talking about, the chip in the Rog Ally is basically a modified 7800u.
>>10255104Even at 720p 60FPS for Elden Ring, I still feel like we’re quite a ways off. Handheld gaming PCs have made good strides in recent years, but there’s still only so much that can be done. It may be possible still should you really boost the TDP, but the sheer amount of power required to get the game at that framerate would basically drain the battery quick and make for a lacklustre portable experience.
>>10255227>>10255209So basically it's all fine if you play up to Xbox 360 era? But once you get to AAA, stick with PC
>>10255242>But once you get to AAA, stick with PChandhelds pc are pc tho??
There's an Aliexpress sitewide sale going on right now. You can get the RGB30 for around $75 shipped depending on your taxes if you use the discount code "rgb30love". Couldn't show it in this pic because I already bought one earlier in the month using the code, but it gives $5 off.
>>10255249Sorry, meant desktop
>>10255386>no name company who only made one garbage handheld in the past is selling preorders based on tiny render imagesno thanks
>>10255242Pretty much. You can probably get away with playing some PS4-era AAA games, and HD remasters will be perfectly fine no problem, but you will have to dial in the settings back quite a bit for better performance depending on the TDP you use. Always keep in mind that the battery life on these x86-based handhelds isn't the greatest, and TDPs higher than 15W will just drain the battery even faster. And outside of indie games, old PC games or for emulation, a 1080p rendering resolution is something that you should absolutely not target for modern AAA games on these devices, nevermind 1200p or higher as some of these handhelds oddly have these screen resolutions. Battery life will drain in less than 2 hours, performance will likely be poor or all over the place, it'd be impractical unless you're playing next to a charger. For modern AAA games especially you will want to stick with your desktop. Its novel playing something like Halo Infinite or RE Village on a handheld like the Steam Deck, but it goes without saying that you'll have a better experience on your more powerful rig. These handhelds are ideal though if your travel from time to time, you want to knock out your backlog away from your desktop, or if you want to be a comfy lazy shit on the couch or in bed but still want to play vidya.
>>10255394Don't actually pre-order obviously, but the price and shipping date is what's interesting given the chip. Also first footage of the device at the bottom.
>>10255415Yeah I was thinking mainly for the couch or bed or non desktop setting, so it's usually plugged in. For travel it's mainly the miyoo mini plus for the form factor
>>10255426>d-pad in the wrong spotNo buy
>>10255426Why is that skeleton riding the tron cycle wrong?
>>10255302I hate the chinkhelds but 70$ is very tempting, thanks anon.
I want to get the rg405m but I’m worried it’ll feel uncomfortable because of those in line shoulder buttons vs stacked shoulder buttons on the rp3+. Do you guys recommend it?
>>10255709you're not going to play first person shooters or modern racing games with it, so stacked shoulder buttons don't matter. and they don't really change anything for comfort.the actual reason you should be worried is the heat making the glue fail and the screen come off.
>>10255768I want to play pokemon and I didn't want to spend 200 on a good 3ds.
I'm still just using my smartphone outside for the time being, and a telescopic controller with some older smartphone that I've turned into dedicated handheld. I finished Sonic Chaos last week, and it made sense to go for Sonic Triple Trouble next, I pulled it off... but didn't get 100% and had to see that "Try Again" message by the end of credits, it wasn't too bad up until the 2nd special stage, but the 3rd one, and especially the 5th... these were something else, and it ruined my run. I don't mind it too much, it was still fun to play, level design, it all controlled well, played well, it's an 8-Bit Sonic, but with more polish than the previous ones... if only the went with the Sonic 1/Sonic 2 system of exploring to find the Chaos Emeralds somewhere on the levels... this would bea must play for me, I still prefer those over this one however, since the special stages really hurt the overall experience I think. Anyways, if you don't mind getting a "Try Again" message by the end and just want to go from point A to point B, this might be the best of the 8-Bit Sonic lineup, it's really fun to play, looks good and sounds good... it's stellar.P.S. I'm posting a photo with Sonic Chaos instead of Triple Trouble because I'm feeling too lazy to take a picture of Triple Trouble, what matters most in the photo itself is the method of playing anyways, and smartphones have come a long way so far, more than I ever expected.
>>10255786>touch screen controlsWhy do you hate your life?
>>10255719Stacked shoulder setup isn't just better for the triggers, it's better because you get full length shoulder buttons too. On inline devices like Anbernig's, I had to bend my fingers to press the L1/R1 buttons and it gets really uncomfortable after a while. If a device has stacked shoulders, I can just rest my entire finger on the shoulders without any discomfort.
We still fighting?
>>10254450I have one of these! They're neat. :)
>>10255709this >>10255719 but actually because the d-pad is in the wrong location
i just want a handheld that can full speed up to PS2is steamdeck the cheapest way
>>10255838Cheapest will probably the Odin 2 when that comes out but even then, it gets pretty close in price to the base Steam Deck when its on sale so it might be better to spring for a deck anyway.
Still winning. Been playing:mario 64mario oddysey the mario 64 hackRideracer 4r type command II: operation bitter chochlateBloody roar
>>10255795I know what you mean, to me just the idea of me playing on my smartphone without a controller... was not viable in the slightest, because of these controls. However, over time I started to try out emulators with the touchscreen controls, and it took a while... but I got used to them. I'd still take a controller over them any day, but they function well enough once you get the hang of it, and it's not too bad on Lemuroid, from my experience, it registers my inputs better than the other so far, I still struggle with some titles, especially those on consoles with more buttons, since they get a lot smaller on the screen and it's hard to be precise when that's the case, but on simpler consoles it's been working fine. I have ways of playing with an actually controller outside, either a telescopic or a dedicated handheld, but in both of those cases it's something extra I have to carry with me, and depending on where I'm at, it might not feel very appropriate to whip them out... my smartphone on the other hand... it's just the most convenient and pocketable experience to me for outside.
>>10255805you don't have to use the tip of your finger to press buttons, anon. you can rest your finger straight and push either button without moving it.also until like PS1 shoulder buttons are only used very sparingly.
>>10255786I played some of Triple Trouble lately and was shocked by how good the physics felt when the CPU speed was cranked a bit. Saving a full playthrough or two for when I receive my RGB30. You should really consider joining the chinkheld master race anon, you'll be happier.
>>10255905It really is fun to play, and the 8-Bit Sonic that, to me at least, feels the closest to the 16-Bit ones in looks and feel, also level design. I hope you have tons of fun playing when you get he RGB30, that screen looks perfect for old handhelds, I'd go for an LCD grid filter if you can, not only does it look more like how the Game Gear did, but it's just a nice look to me for some reason, very appealing.I'm sure that a handheld would make me happy, they've all come a long way from just a few years back, but to me the cost just isn't worth it, I have a smartphone already, and had an old one laying around, a controller for it was way cheaper than full on handhelds, so I went for it instead. Still, I don't look down on these handhelds at all, hope they're here to stay. Have fun with your RGB30!
>>10255152That's a lotta words to say analoguefags are complete morons
>>10255778>I want to play pokemonYou are the vertislop of people
What's the truth behind GBA games benefitting from colour correction when emulated on non-GBA screens? I've been playing some GBA games on my MM+ and some look much better with correction (Metroid Fusion, the Castlevania games) but there's a couple like Sonic Advance which almost looks more natural without the colour correction.
>>10255786At this point I'm convinced you think /hhg/ stands for "my personal pHHone posting bloG."
>>10256103Because some games were designed with the AGS-001 screen in mind and others weren't. It's a game by game basis.
>>10256103It depends on whether you like more saturated colors, so like anything else regarding shaders and shit it's all subjective and on a per game basis.
>>10256112Well, why is that? I mean, it's a thread for people to talk about handheld video games experiences that they've been having, at least it's how I see it, and that includes what they're playing, what they bought, what they're looking forward to, etc... All I'm doing is talking about my preferred method, at least currently, for platying outside, on the go, and what I've been playing on it recently... what's wrong with that exactly? Is it against the point of the thread? I don't think it is, and honestly if you dislike my posts, they're few posts among literal hundreds, I just enjoy talking to the people here.
>>10256164How about this, anon: go an entire thread without avatarfagging with sanic pics and maybe I'll answer your question.
>>10255856>mario oddysey the mario 64where do i find the mario odyssey hack

>>10256173He's adding vr gaming relevant discussion on top of it.
>>10256173No, never. I refuse... just kidding, it's not that big of a deal for me, I just do it without thinking for some reason, though in this case I'm doing it on purpose just because... still, If you're interested in answering my question instead of complaining about every post I make, then just do it. I don't get why you're so bothered with little things like me talking about emulating on my smartphone, what ROMs I'm playing and me posting Sonic pictures alongside my posts on these threads...Anon, I'd be happy to talk to you about what you have fun playing on the go, and what device you use, I prefer doing that than having discussions with you that don't go anywhere, where we just get upset at one another, I mean, it's pointless.
>>10256234if you are going to phonefag then at least put a controller on it, touchscreen is the sloppiest slop to ever exist
>>10256248But anon he's using it horizontally, that means you have to call it based!
>>10256248It's more pocketable and portable to not use it at all, as long as you get used to touchscreens, then it works well enough to play, having to carry with you a separate attachment to your device, in this case a controller, makes it less convenient, which to many is the whole point of playing handhelds.
>>10256263and the touchscreen is so abysmally bad I'd rather not play at all. I will accept if you use it for jarpigs or similar, but this fag is using it for fucking Sonic
I can't believe I actually buy something from Powkiddy but €86 was just a wonderful deal for a device like this, just please don't fucking explode on me.
>>10256289>I can't believe I actually buy something from PowkiddyONE OF USONE OF US
>>10256247You talk like a redditor and you try to put on a naive and innocent persona so I'm not going to discuss anything personal with you. Usually when people talk here about games they play it's to discuss a device's or peripheral's function and how it feels to play or how it looks but all you ever do is post garbage blog shit that no one asked or cares about. That would be bad enough but your blatant avatarfagging just serves to put the final nail in the coffin in making you as insufferable as possible.
>>10256294I write the same way everywhere, including real life, it's just how I write, it's not something I think about, it just comes to me naturally, I believe it's the same for everyone else, I'm not a Reddit user at all, nor do I care about that website, this really is just the way I write. I'm also not putting on any sort of persona, I'm just being myself and writing how I'd write when talking to anyone I know. I'm not upset about you disliking my posts, you can like or dislike whatever you want, but I don't see them as being all that different from other posts here, and while you might dislike/not care about them, others might like them. I'm sorry you find me to be insufferable, it's really not on purpose.
>>10256274ah, you will "accept" if its used for jrps, but not a platformer? wow, thank you so much for accepting the way some people choose to play! surely they wouldnt be able to play otherwiseget off your fucking high horse
>>10256310There's nothing high about the horse, it's just above you and your rock bottom standards.
>>10256248You blind? There's a razer kishi attached and homeboy said he uses a telescopic too. Learn to read.
>>10256323Put whatever you want on it but the moment you use it without a controller you lose all rights to consider yourself human and above all a true gamer, no cap.
>>10256323check your own eyes, there are touchscreen fags in this thread>>10255786
>>10256294I'll add one more thing to what I've mentioned on my previous post (>>10256306)... I'll keep coming to these threads, posting on them, posting Sonic artwork and/or photos I want to, writing the way I do... and I think that's fine, if you disagree, and prefers to insult me every time I do it, on every thread from now on, do as you please, but I feel that it'll get old quickly, so if I'm so insufferable, just ignore me and my posts from this point on, it seems like the reasonable thing to do to me.I wish you the best, so cheers.>>10256323Well, just to clarify, I'm not the Razer Kishi poster since that controller was a bit out of reach due to price for me, I prefer cheaper ones like MOCUTE and IPEGA due to them being more affordable, I also have my eyes on the BSP-D6 for some time. Still, while I use a controller to play in bed when I'm at home, with an older smartphone of mine, outside I prefer to not take a dedicated device and/or an attachment with me, a smartphone is more convenient by itself, I just prefer it now...
>>10256329Your mom called, she wants to know if you want the crusts cut from your PB&J?
>>10256340yes, thanks. eating crust is for poorfags.
>>10256306>>10256339>I'm going to keep being annoying and avatarfagging on purposeWe know
So far this thread has proven that touchscreen gaming hate is completely blind because the only argument haters have come up with is "touchscreens........LE BAD"
>>10256384I'm not going to explain why eating shit is bad. I don't even care if you eat shit, just keep your shit eating out of this thread.
>>10256403Holy kek he was right, y'all got NOTHIN
>>10256263Don't bother, the anti-phone shitposter is more annoying than actual phonefags. Ignore him and report him.
>>10256384touchscreen buttons have no feedback. you don't know where the button ends and where a different area that doesn't react to presses begins. they are shit for gaming and i refuse to use them. maybe you could make a case for a game like kirby tilt'n'tumble where you only use gyro most of the time or turn-based games like pokemon, but for anything else they suck.
is ps vita worth it in 2023?
>>10256486youre absolutely right! you know what you should do? not use them, and for those that manage to not have the same issues as you, playing their games with them, theyll use it, please can you stop crying about it as if the manner others play is at all your bussiness?
>>10256494It wasn't even worth it in its heyday. Just get a psp instead.
>>10256494Maybe if you have some Vita games you really want to play, but I wouldn't recommend getting one just to use it for emulation.
>>10256505but PSP doesn't even have a proper analog stick, just a slider. and I dislike those things after using one on my 3ds
>>10256517You get used to it. 3ds's was worse than psp's.
>>10254914I got one of those. Absolutely shitty buttons and d pad
Miyoo Mini Flip when
>>10256528I would definitely buy one
>>10256528Fold it in half
>>10256515I mean... sure it doesn't emulate everything, but it can play Vita games (obviously), PSP games, almost all PS1 games, and probably a lot of weaker systems like NES or Genesis. I also really like the design, it's not until you get to the more expensive GPD or Ayaneo devices that you start to see chinkhelds looking that nice with transparent buttons and everything. it's also pretty amazing how they managed to put a 5-inch display in it and still make it quite compact. if chinks started printing new motherboards for Vita with modern phone SoCs (even something like T618), that would be the perfect handheld for me...
>>10256540Ngl, I wish I could
>>10256486Absolutely embarrassing that you would type all this out without realizing it only reflects on you and that people have beaten speed platformers with touch controls. Right now the Sonic homeboy is the chad doge and you're like the little wimp doge in that meme format.
>>10254452>>10254447its great>>10255010>>10255056ignore these posters keknever had a single issuebeat games on cart and within fpga coresthe save states work fine but i will admit that i dont use them like normal zoomer abusersi just use them as "bookmarks" so when i return between sessions i dont have to start over.>>10255814YES
Who is worse, Anal Loggers or phonefags? You can only pick one.
>>10256339nta Consider the manner of your writing as its appearance will affect how it's responded to. The informal casual tone you've chosen contains numerous comma splices due to impromptu structuring which lacks cohesive flow and is best suited for verbal conversation. Like, if you don't try, and simply put commas after solitary thoughts, it reads, like, a valley girl, or whatever.Here's a sample:>It really is fun to play, and the 8-Bit Sonic that, to me at least, feels the closest to the 16-Bit ones in looks and feel, also level designEdited sample:>It really is the 8-Bit Sonic which feels closest to the 16-Bit ones in looks, feel, and level designFeel free to ignore this advice if you don't care. Food for thought.
>>10256578>people have beaten speed platformers with touch controlssome people also beat marathons with weights on their bodies. does it mean that those weights don't make it harder for them to run?
>>10256591I don't plan on ignoring it, as I think this is some genuinely good and helpful advice. I didn't mean to say that I never consider the appearance of my writing, it was more of a matter that I don't think about it much and prefer to just write as it comes to me naturally, and this is the way I've gotten used to writing, so it's the one I write naturally without having to put extra thought and effort into it, but you're definitely right about my use of commas being quite excessive... I'll work on that from now on, and I'll try to translate my thoughts into words in a more compact manner, since I know that pretty much every post of mine is a huge paragraph that sucks to read.Thanks!
DragonBox Pyra when ?
>>10256583oh please, it's not even close. the anal log is at least an actual handheld, and they don't ruin threads. the only thing they are guilty of is being hypocritical puritans.
>>10256608Oh hey that looks pretty fucking sexy
>>10256608this was so cool when I saw it like 10 years ago
>>10256294Hes been avatarfagging for a week straight, just hide the ip and ignore the retard
>>10256619>and they don't ruin threadshow does someone posting about playing on their phone ruin a thread exactly?
I got a psvitaRetroarch or stand alone emulators? Are there even worthwile vita games?PSP yeah a fuck ton but what about the vita
>>10256603It means it works for them and the fact that you can't do the same thing doesn't make it inherently bad.
>>10256636Nta but they don't, the person sperging about them all the time ruins the thread.
>>10256619>>10256663no one ruins the thread(s).
>>10256635I know I've been avatarfagging too much, and its not proper behavior according to the rules, but it really isn't on purpose, most of the time at least, I'm somewhat autistic in the sense that I have an actual need to attach pictures to my posts... sure, it doesn't excuse it, but I'm just explaining it. And why Sonic? Well, it's what I've been playing, when I play something else, and make posts about it, it makes sense for me to post pictures related to it, which I do, it's just that I'm mainly playing Sonic, I apologize if it's been annoying, but again I never saw it as a big deal, and I enjoy posting art I like...
>>10256636phonefags are the BLACKED posters of /hhg/the entire reason this thread exists, and the entire reason chinkhelds exist at all, is because phones suck
>>10256605I get it. I'll do something similar to what you do where I'll get my thoughts out first (which is more important) and then edit them for brevity and clarity while removing anything obvious or repetitive. If you find yourself using lots of commas anyways then you can always use conjunctions.>Getting your thoughts out first is most important as you can always edit them for brevity and clarity afterward. Conjunctive words are great in place of commas if need be.
this is like a billion years late, but thanks to the anon that recommended a razer phone screen protector for X28. It was like $3 shipped from china for a pack of 3 (in case I screwed one up). it just werks and I know longer have the weird smudging due to the screen plastic driving me insane.
>>10256692You also don't need to respond to every single post about you
>>10256708>Getting your thoughts out first is most important as you can always edit them for brevity and clarity afterward. Conjunctive words are great in place of commas if need be.>Trim your verbage and use compound words.fix'd
If you're gonna phonefag, at least do it correctly.
>>10256741>clip with dogshit weight distribution and a gay tendie theme on the controllerm8.
I honestly think the RGB 30 Max from Powkiddy is neat, totally better than most the Coolboy products, and also some of Powkiddy's other products such as the RG20S and V90. Not sure about the Datafrog SF2000, though. Still better than the Anal-log pocket by at least 4 bits.
>>10256741>correctlyno such thing, if you're emulating on a phone, it's already a completely different experience from a genuinely accurate one, you might aswell just do what feels more comfortable for you, and if that means not taking a controller with you just so its used for a few minutes whenever you play on the spare time you've got outside, then so be it.It's simple, the reason most people that play on the phone do it is because of how convenient it is, its a device they'll already take with them anyways, if you're going to bring a whole controller so you can attach it to your phone, that you'll have to go out or your way to detach and put it back in your bag once you stop using it or get a call, it's better to just use a standalone handheld at that point.
>>10256541Well the battery will swell like a balloon, but it won't literally blow up in whats left of your hands like a powkiddy.Vita is better than most chinese junk
>>10256638Retroarch is fine for most of the systems that work well. I'd only use standalone emulators if you run into issues or want to play something that doesn't have a retroarch core. Use Adrenaline for PSP/PS1.There's some Vita stuff worth playing, and it's all easily available free through pkgj anyways, so you might as well try whatever looks interesting to you. Also, if you somehow don't have an SD2Vita, get one of those instead of a bigger memory card.
>>10256741I'd rather buy a chinkheld than use that.
>>10256741I have that controller and it's horriblethere's this bizarre bug where if you don't push a button for 10 seconds (even while pushing other buttons) then when you do push it again there's a delay
>>10256760>still better than a thing i never tried even once, bought, or know anything aboutopinion discarded
>>10256741The only reason to do it is to get an actual DS emulation setup which none of the flip handhelds can do effectively at the moment or getting a better chipset than most handhelds have to power through more intensive stuff although that new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 handheld will obsolete that. Going to be niche but that is honestly it as far as legitimate reasons why.
>>10256853DS is unironically better on one big screen.
What's the best option for arcade games on an android chinkheld? Mame retro arch core? FBneo retro arch core? Something else?
>>10256723>Why waste time say lot word when few word do trick?Your edit chopped off the subject of an initial drafting stage then went on to redefine editing as "trimming verbage" which itself refers to excessive technicality rather than redundancies, only to confuse the term "conjunction" with "compound".Your good effort got the general idea across, though a great deal of nuance was lost as a result. C+
>>10256916Fuck that score, I'm replaying this level after I'm done being so mad.
Thinking of buying this for a friend, apparently it uses the same stock firmware as RS-90 and RG-99 which I own both but with landscape form factor. Will be great for introducing her to some NES, SNES, Genesis, and GBA games
>>10256928uh ohhhh creepy
>>10256845Cope, analogue PR team.
>>10256638>pic relatedvita has some one piece games. Other anon already mentioned retroarch but if you want standalones there's easy install packs, nice quick way to get startedhttps://github.com/theheroGAC/PSP-EMULATORS-INSTALLERhttps://github.com/theheroGAC/PSVITAEMUINSTALLER
>>10256826That's nice but phonefags have proven to actually play and finish games, all chinkholders do is tinker and cry at people who don't use chinkhelds exclusively.
>>10256915Both of those for the games they play respectively.
When is that "super" RG35XX going to be out? Is there any new info about it?
>>10256638I use Retroarch for everything except N64 and PS1, it's really nice once you get it set up. Daedalus is the only N64 emulator, and Adrenaline uses Sony's PS1 emulator which runs perfectly.as for Vita games, there are PS2 ports, a very small selection of AA and AAA games, and plenty of indie titles, just look through PKGJ, there's tons of stuff in there. it even has minecraft.
>>10256164My son's one of you types of boy. We talk less these days since the transition.
I can get upscaled Dreamcast to runI can get upscaled PSP to runI can get some Gamecube games to runI can get some PS2 games to runI can even get most Saturn games at full speedI cannot for the life of my get Scrimblo Tooie on N64 to run at a playable speed FUCK that game
>>10257117Stop feeding it
>>10256853JusT buy a DS
>>10257117transition past ur anus
>>10254749my prob with that is that iphones are a headache to emulate with and even then, the battery drains like daylight, by the time I carry the extra battery and charger for the battery and cable itself im better off carrying a chunky tablet and backpack to hold all the stuff. I want somewhere between a psp to GBA backlight flipper to play games. Im so tired of being married to a wall outlet once or twice a day. Id rather have a game device that doesnt steal battery from the phone to play 20+ year old games. Congrats to the folks who can live without their phones or dont get calls or texts all day to preserve the battery, mine cant. Im thinking of a handheld device and pretend I dont have a phone, whats the best at or below 70 bucks.
>>10256693"just use that thing you use thats always at 10% battery remaining, use that for 40% of your spare time between using the phone, I cant see anything going wrong beca-...hang on gotta find my charger and cable and nearest outlet to sit next to for the next 1.5 hours...so where was I? oh right, so phones are perfect for gaming on the g-....oh no 5%, hang on let me just camp out at this outlet for a couple hours with the charger and cable and outlet and hopefully its not too annoying to chill here and play my games...so anyways yeah, just use your pho"-sent from my iphone
>>10257187>iphonesYou did it to yourself, you deserve everything bad that happens to you.>>10257196Nice try but the people that post here have phone battery for days because we don't socialize too much.
For real though, just make an iphone 2x as big and cram 3 batteries in there and maybe ill believer the "iphone is great because I intentionally omit the part where I put chargers in every room and am constantly recharging" or "I set my backlight to 0.1% so I can use my phone for half the day". Im on year 1.3 and the battery has been shit from day 1 once I started pretending the phone could work as advertised. Reminds me of the "its waterproof for an hour, just dont use it under water for over 25 minutes" bullshit.
>>10257203My bad, Im still relatively human and enjoy a phone that just werks. I can see how this is all my fault because I believed what people said a phone could do, I suppose my next step is using my phone as a gaming system because people said a phone could do it.
>>10257187As someone that plays on my Android regularly, I don't have these issues as much, most midranger phones that run Android nowadays have battery that lasts the whole day on a single charge unless you use it all of the time and/or to do demanding stuff, also most people that emulate on phones I know of just play for a few minutes when they're on a break where they can do it, not for hours...I tried putting emulators on my GF's iPhone once, because she wanted to play her childhood favorite SNES titles on the go, but it was awful to pull off due to Apple not having any emulators in the store, and the only other ways I found to put them were mediocre or downright tiresome... if you like being restricted and paying a lot for this stuff, fine, but it's not a matter of "just works".
>>10257218My just werks is more to do with phone or life stuff. Mobile gaming is brute force on iphone which demands a cucked lifestyle I cant tolerate, I used to be like people I know "I dont know what youre talking about my battery is gre- hey can I use your charger real quick?". I just want to find the smallest cheapest device that can do ALL ALL ALL ALL not some ALL SNES and ps1 games. Sure an android phone can do whatever for life, Ive got an iphone so id much rather have a second device thats smaller than a battery bank or my tablet. If no device is cheaper or smaller than my tablet then ill leave it alone and accept that my 25 dollar tablet wins. One thing im not doing is "phone gaming is great just do all this bullshit that makes phone gaming fucking annoying and embarrassing compared to just having your tablet". I really dont want to carry a bunch of shit to make the "better" solution a reality. 70 dollar handheld that can do PS1 and ALL ALLL ALL ALL ALL ALL ALL every single ALL SNES games for as small as possible under 70 dollars. Or I save money and just carry a backpack for my phone and tablet.
>>10257212>I did no research and blame all my decisions on othersYou would fit right in /r9k/ if you aren't from there already
>>10257241>iphone [...] demands a cucked lifestyleOne which you choose to continue living lmao get self rekt
>>10257243>>10257252Very epic my man, very le epic. So its literally just carry a tablet and phone but you're pissed I figured it out without your help? ok thanks bud. Guess you saved me 70 bucks.
>>10257060There are also a bunch of PS2 ports, and if you hack it, it can run pretty much tons of PSP games ans btw there are about 80+ PS2-PSP ports. The Vita also has Wii ports, PS3 and even PS4 ports like World of Final Fantasy, even PC and Android ports like the GTAs , Max Payne etc.
>>10257152No, no that one, supposedly a new iteration of the RG35XX with a slightly bigger screen, better ergonomics and wifi
>>10257258No it's just upgrade to android instead of purposefully and proudly sticking with an inferior product.
>>10257260Why play choppy ports of PS2 games when you can play the real things on the brand new Anbernic RG405V?
What are some chinkheld companies whose products were so bad that they totally rebranded themselves in the hopes everyone would forget their past failures?
Question for Retroid Pocket owners. Are their Sandisk cards legit? Also, how's their SD card reader?
>>10257359Unless it's got a bunch of games on it you can copy onto a real sd card, chinkheld sd cards aren't worth the risk.
>>10257363Ah shit. Well no problem then. I'll be sure to find a good SD card considering they're not that expensive.
>>10256638Got retroarch running and both FFV and DKC2 are running between 59-60 fps with no drops at all (without filters), really fucking good lads thats what I needed the most, going to check FPS of FVI and maybe CC too lolThanks to all the anon suggesting games
have u ever went fast?
>>10257218Even more android battery life if you debloat with universal android debloater. X
>>10256486Sure. The original point though was that it was what was available at hand for the guy to play games on in between classes. His use case acenario found a aolution and he adapted to it. Your endless fucking shaming of others must be some shit from your childhood I suppose. Handheld= anything that can be held in the hand. Sure there's better options. But it should be celebrated that the lad finally got aeound to beating a game on his list. A retro game at that So unless you're a shill. Get the hell over yourself as no one gives a fuck about getting 'on your level' bro.
>>10256591Constructive criticism seasoned with advice. I applaud you.
does the extra GB of ram make any difference with the RP2S?

>>10257456Ya know what.... I like where your heads at!but no lol, try something better than this strawman argument. There's a board out there for weapons; and to be fair, controllers have been talked about plenty on the hgg threads with little to no issue. So what's your next raggity ass comeback?
>>10256515>Vita gamesdoesnt exist
>>10257462>There's a board out there for weaponsThere's a board out there for technology. There's a board out there for video games.
Does the Retroid Pocket 3+ come preloaded with up-to-date emulators or do I have to install them? Or do they not come with any emulators?
>>10257481You're better off downloading retroarch and dolphin from their respective websites anyway.
>>10257483Why do people advise getting RetroArch? Aren't they just a bundle of emulators? Do they work better than standalone ones?
>>10257489RetroArch is pretty controversial mostly because RetroArchfags. IMO RetroArch is indeed a great option for setting emulators for 5th and older consoles on chinkhelds, and sometimes is your only option anyway. Good thing is that Retro Reddit dude has some really good guides for setting up RetroArch and other emulators on most chinkhelds without issue.
>>10257489It's an emulator pack that's good for most everything besides GC, PS2, and anything you prefer standalone emulators for.
X39 > MM+
>>10257489It doesn't exactly work better, the upside to retroarch is the uniformity. You can change settings across multiple emulators at once, share hotkeys between systems, etc
>>10257267heh "upgrade" to android, thats cute
>>10256339>I prefer cheaper ones like MOCUTE and IPEGA due to them being more affordable, I also have my eyes on the BSP-D6 for some timewhy would you buy 3 trash controllers instead of one good one for the same price
>>10257359microsd cards are cheaper on amazon anon. also you really want a usb 3 card reader, usb 2 speeds will make you want to shoot your computer.
>>10257427not for emulation. for some android games it might.
What handheld can I buy that can emulate GC and PS2 games for under $200? I do not want a steam deck since that thing is massive.
>>10257551Nigga is playing with touch controls, don't try and reason with it.
>>10257560Don't make me tap the sign.
>>10257560ayn odin lite will be the best choice for $200, but it won't play everything full speed, particularly not PS2.
Pretty sure I have it nailed whenever they/them/xer/pan-am goes for "just use your phone lol xfd lmao" argument but just in case, cheaper and more practical to carry a phone and tablet than it is to buy a 70 dollar handheld right? There is no handheld under that exists right now that can play ALL snes games and a few ps1 games for under 70 dollars? Just wanna make sure Ive nailed this without the "why dont you carry 23 dildos with your phone in public in a small fanny pack?" zoom-zoom advice moments. Its cheaper than buying another handheld, but I hate carrying a whole damn tablet just because my other handheld cant do a few snes and yet all ps1 games. Ive followed up on anbernics that either are immune to searches or only exist on temu/ali-ex' for 3 dollars and 5 year shipping. Im trying to reduce shit im carrying, "lol-phone" means Im carrying a battery bank for the phone just to enhance shitty arguments about "lol use the phone". Cant believe Im being held back by 2 SNES games not working on any handheld (until magic 120 dollar threshold) but it seems like thats where we're at right now.

Do you realize how embarrassing it looks to use anything but a phone in publicYou live in a panopticon where everyone has a 4k video recorder on them + the social incentives to use it, the last thing you should be trying to be is cringe.
>>10257586>You guys realize how embarassing it looks to carry around anything except a phone in public, right?What, so I can't carry a bag, or groceries, or anything like that?
>>10257586Anon, you're (hopefully) a grown ass adult, yeah? Then act like it, and stop worrying about whether or not the cool kids are gonna make fun of you on facebook.Besides, it's bold to even assume anyone notices you in public in the first place. Unless you're doing something so fucking stupid or outrageous that it can't be ignored, 99% of people won't even register the fact that you exist. Grow up and play some goddamn gameboy
>>10257587>>10257586Holy shit, this anon thinks he's Patrick Bateman, has to make sure everything he does looks perfect, even to the fucking randos on 4chan. Grow up dude
>>10257587nobody will film you playing pokemon on the bus anon. nobody gives a shit. in the slight chance someone notices they would just think "damn i wish i was playing pokemon too"
>>10257587imagine being this concerned with public perception and still not getting any ass
>>10257597with the right context and framing you will be on someone's phone. To think people on a mongolian basket weaving simulator havent come to this realization yet is beyond me. Half of the internet is "check out this guy in the background who didnt even know he was going to be on the internet today, check out his reaction, look at what he's wearing, do people really go outside looking like this? whats he looking at, oh he's playing a game" lets not pretend like we just started internetting today
>>10257630I was shitposting when I made the "stop worrying about whether or not the cool kids are gonna make fun of you on facebook" comment, but now I'm actually convinced you're a high schooler who's been made fun of for a pic on instagram or something.The only people who say shit like "Hah, look at him, he's playing a Switch, what a fucking loser" are angsty teenagers who feel the need to convince themselves they're cooler than everyone else, and 30 year olds who've never emotionally matured since high school. and if you're letting the opinions of those kinds of people influence your life, you have bigger issues than being seen in public playing Super Mario World

>>10254410at the moment I'd say it seems like the following are the top winners of the "under 150 dollars" category of handhelds;>either Miyoo Mini+ or Anbernic RG35XX for the extra small form factor handhelds(I'd say it only really matters which one you go for depending on whether you think built in wi-fi or having HDMI output is more important of a secondary feature)>Powkiddy RGB30 if you want a Linux handheld that has a bigger screen and more power than the previous tier without having to go too much higher in cost, also unlike many of these handhelds it comes from the factory with a good quality Custom Firmware in the form of JELOS so you just need to update it once you get it instead of having to do it all from scratch>Retroid Pocket 2S if you want an Android handheld, probably the best power for cost ratio of any of the sub $150 handhelds
>>10257645>30 year olds who've never emotionally matured since high school.There are more of these people than you think and they're more than willing to ruin your life because they think you're hilarious. Everyone has kiwifarms brain now

>>10257718PSP had a swappable battery though, a 4-7hr lifespan per battery too.
>>10256289Can it play Switch and Xbox360?
>>10257761>a 4-7hr lifespan per battery too.in 2006 maybe
>>10257656This isn't really that bad imo, though a smaller monitor or laptop would make more sense
>>10257770You can buy new batteries for it. I think theres some that go past the default cap too so 6-9hrs.
>>10257778ah, you sweet innocent child. keep your rose tinted glasses forever
>>10257187I bought a phone dedicated to playing games for this. Old flagship Android phones are great candidates, since they're relatively inexpensive, have a lot of built in space, and may even have a replaceable battery.
>>10257824honestly might be my next move here, Im tired of swapping around because every vidya device has a rock paper scissors balance against the other. Feels like I spend more time getting ready to play than actually playing. Or maybe I embrace the clunk and sideways fannypack everything on me at all times. Like functional crossfit where they carry those chest plates, just carry 20lbs of practical stuff.
>>10257851>Im tired of swapping around because every vidya device has a rock paper scissors balance against the other.just use one device for everything. who cares if there's black bars because the aspect ratio isn't perfect or the analog stick is in the wrong place, just play the damn games.
>>10257861I just tried "play the damn game" with colony wars and couldnt hit shit. black bars isnt the problem, I stretch everything, its the input or game compatibility or battery capacity or hugeness. If it comes down to one device and "just play the game" Im carrying a tablet in a mexican sweater all day.
>>10257750Now add shipping and taxes (if you live in Europe) to that and suddenly it's more like $200.

Miyoo flip news here
>>10258815If you're too disabled to provide additional storage on yourself for necessary items (phone and video games) then it stands to reason you're too far gone to listen to music instead of soitubers reading off wikipedia articles in their "ten obscure facts you didn't know about pokemans" videos.
Well, today my university course decides to make everyone waste their time a bit, if anyone here's been to university, you know that's how it usually goes, anyways we all had to do group seminars... about 10 groups, took around 3hrs for the whole thing to finish, so there was a lot of time to spare here... and my Samsung Galaxy A14 is getting the job done as usual, with Lemuroid's excellence.I went for Castle of Illusion this time, the version on Mega Drive, though the 8-Bit version is quite fantastic too, and man... I had QuackShot as a kid, but I wish I had this one too, this is platforming at its best on SEGA hardware, it looks superb, OST's delivering the right atmosphere for every part of the adventure, control and level design are good, I managed to finish it, and still wanted more of it.P.S. I love this specific part on the photo I took at home after the whole thing ended, to me it's just the most cozy part of the whole adventure, OST once again delivers, alongside the aesthetics...
>>10258881On another note, today was really hot outside... and that went for the classroom too, and this to me is when touchscreen controls struggle most, when your hands sweat even a little bit, at least it wasn't enough of an issue that it stopped me from finishing it, I was on my last life, or "try" in this case, but still pulled it off, it's one thing that physical buttons will always be 10x better, but I didn't have too much trouble with it as I thought I would. I still think the convenience is worth it, I messed around on my smartphone and nobody cared, becaus everyone was doing it, it doesn't get people's attention at all, and that's a thing I appreciate a lot, since in situations like this what I want most is to be invisible for a while, just to focus on what I'm doing and not much else...
>>10258891>I messed around on my smartphone and nobody caredThat's basically what your posts amount to, yes
Got some ok coupons for temu. Any good stuff there? Only really want up to ps1 or even less is fine, as long as it runs gba.Can knock off 40€ off 100 and more or 20 off 50 and more.
>>10258909Miyoo Mini or RG35XXEither one works
>>10258849That's way too long to wait
>>10258735Odin probably. RK3566 can only do lightweights, T618 still chokes a bit on some heavier games.
>>10258909The rg nano my good sir
guys I bought a switch lite so I can get an nso account and order a n64 controller. holy shit this thing feels so cheap and the buttons and dpad are so fucking stupidly tiny. my 353ps feels way better than this thing. better built, more comfortable to hold, buttons feel better.
anyone here got a retroid pocket 2S?
>>10259004>Nintendo Switch Lite>NSO Account>N64 ControllerI mean... you were asking for a poor experience.NSO? I just... please don't tell me you wanted to get this to play ROMs you can get online for free.GBC's still Nintendo's magnum opus in handheld.Is there any way for you to return it at least?
>>10259004I don't know who I hate more, you, phonefags, or anal loggers.
>>10258916>>10258942I guess the miyoo it is. Even looking at the nano hurts my fingers.
>>10258758sakuraretromodding on etsyfair warning it took probably a month to receive, but the guy is very good customer service-wiseif you want convex/concave mix, you need to specify in your order, otherwise he only shows options for them separately
>>10259014I want the controllers for mister and pc emulation. you need an nso account to buy them. you need a switch to make an nso account. after I buy the controllers I'm returning the shitch shite back to shartmart
>>10259025yes you do, phonefags. you know there is no more contemptable race of poster
>>10259085I see, hope it all works out, anon. Cheers!
>>10259091Anti-PhoneFags manage to be more annoying than actual PhoneFags.
>>10259091That other guy is right, I guess I hate switchfags the most since the worst that phonefags do is cause anti-phonefags to shit up the thread through no fault of the phonefags themselves.
>>10259148>I guess I hate switchfags the most since the worst that phonefags do is cause anti-phonefags to shit up the thread through no fault of the phonefags themselves.Indeed, I mean, we probably have less than half a dozen of PhoneFags, and if we want to talk about people that post regularly, maybe a couple, max. I mean, usually they post about what they played or about what they're using on their phone, like a controller and stuff, it's really not a big deal, I can think of the anon that posts Sonic a lot, and that one that posts their Kishi often, besides that, the older "Just use your phone" annoying PhoneFags don't seem to be very active.
>>10259165Don't get me wrong I still hate phonefags I just think the antis are stupidly more obnoxious.
>>10259171I know, and I agree, I just think that they were the #1 most annoying with the "just use your phone" fags, the ones we have now only suck because of the sin of using their phone like a fag, but they're harmless or even alright posters sometimes now.
>>10259103thats exactly what a phonefag would say
>>10259171not as obnoxious as the anti-aniti-phonefags
>>10258815>I know I'll listen to music while playing a game with music. But seriously, longplay podcasts are fun if you find the right ones.
>>10259202True. And the anti-anti-anti-phonefags? Just the worst.
>>10259204>But seriously, longplay podcasts are fun if you find the right ones.I never got the appeal of podcasts. My Creative and Zune are both full of music. The Zune has some videos too, but those are for absolute emergency situations. Music for music players, games for game consoles. Phones for calling.
>>10259232You do realize that a key sign of autism is needing to keep separate things in their own separate spaces, right?
>>10259240yeah but even neurotypicals do that to some extent.
>>10254410Is there any difference between ordering the retroid pocket 3+ on the official website and ordering it from somewhere like ebay/amazon? While i noticed that they're both priced equally amazon has a faster shipment.
>>10259243Maybe but I'll bet you're not one of those kek
>>10258891Anon why are you even here? This is a general about handheld systems, and you're apparently so terrified of being seen playing video games in public that you refuse to even have a handheld console.Of all the hobbies I've seen in this site, how are you the most ashamed one.
>>10259296I'm here to talk about handhelds, it's the point of the thread, isn't it? I'm not ashamed of my hobby or playing in public, if I was then I'd avoid doing it at all cost, I prefer to be as invisible as possible to avoid nuisances, if you've ever been to college, or a work environment with tons of people, you get the idea over time, that it's ideal to just not bring out much attention at all, because people can be cumbersome, and might just try to get you in real trouble over small things just for the sake of it, I also play in class sometimes and of course I know many professors could be frustrated if it's clear I came to class just to play, and again I just want to avoid trouble as much as possible. It is what it is.
>>10259318Sounds to me like the bigger problem is you're trying to play video games at work and in class
>>10259318I don't know, sounds like that anon was right and you're in denial about it.
>>10259331In work environments, or study environments, a person is expected to be productive at all times, but we know that's not entirely possible always, and as I've mentioned before college has a lot of filler and pointless stuff that you essentially have to attend even if you don't want to and/it it's just useless for you at that moment. I don't think it's wrong for me to want to mind my own bussiness and distract myself when I'm at a class that's not going to be very useful to me, so I do just that.>>10259345Well, you can believe whatever you want to, it's not my duty to convince you that I'm saying what I truly think, and really I'm starting to find it quite pointless, as it seems most of the people that are replying to my posts do it in bad faith, of course I can't prove that and I don't mean to generalize, it just frustrates me how I can't post about my own experiences playing something outside, on /hhg/, without most replies being people feeling spite for me daring to play on a smartphone's screen.
Is there like a rom/bios pack for retroid pocket or something? im too lazy to do a setup and was wondering if there's something premade.
>>10254410Okay boys, I want some chink shit for my niece and nephew.I'd prefer something cheaper incase the youngest or his friends breaks them, also no internet access.
>>10259438Try the handheld doc.docs()google()com/spreadsheets/d/1irg60f9qsZOkhp0cwOU7Cy4rJQeyusEUzTNQzhoTYTU
>>10259353Nta but the fact that you feel the need to respond to every post remotely related to you makes you come off as insecure especially when you post paragraphs every time
>>10259453I was looking at the Q90, I'm afraid they might snap the V90 in half. Size also seems to be good for kids.
>>10259486If you're worried about stuff like that don't forget to make sure you get something that requires minor/no tinkering
>>10258281dude probably meant vita exclusives. though who cares? you can still play the whole PSP library on the machine.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgHYC8JD1fQhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHGdni7swUAhttps://retrododo.com/first-look-at-new-ayaneo-flip/I've been reading a lot of comments speaking to the mistrust in any company other than Valve regarding customer support. They all speak of the need for a good Clamshell UMPC. So it begs the question, - When is the Steam Deck Flip?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djG_FGl5yowWhat PC games can we expect the Odin 2 chipset to be able to run?
>>10259514Clamshells are a meme. If I want button smudges on my screen I'll rub my fingers on it myself.
>>10259514>What PC games can we expect the Odin 2 chipset to be able to run?Zero because it's a mobile phone chip
>>10259514All of them (through streaming)
Are we still pretending that we hate Pokemon here? As if that’s not what 90% of us bought the Miyoo Mini for?
>>10259569Strong projection coming from this post.
>>10259569I sold my Miyoo Mini though.
>>10259538Yea, but streaming is for zuma's and people who chop onions.
Vertislop is coming tomorrow bros. Got my SD cards set up minus scummvm because I dunno how to set it up, still looking into it. Thinking it'll hold me over until either the next big linux-based device or either Powkiddy makes a better rgb30/Anbernic rips them off.
>>10259438>>10259486How old are they? If you're on a budget just buy them Famiclones, they are dirt cheap and good for Tetris, Donkey Kong, Mario, etc. Otherwise there's stuff like >>10256928 or X350 which are cheaper than the Q90 but can still handle NES, Genesis, GBA, and some SNES fine. Honestly I probably wouldn't even get a Q90 for myself at this point with so many cheaper options. Plus they would have to remember to do a safe shutdown every time to prevent bricking the SD card
>>10259438SF2000 might be a good option. Cheap, simple to use, no internet that I know of. They can also use a wireless controller with it for multiplayer stuff.
>>10254410Just found this thread.That console comparison website is a godsent.
>>10259438I'd suggest the rg35xx or Miyoo Mini purely for the fact that garlicOS/onoinOS is probably the most user friendly OS available. if your nephew is and nieces are young it may be good to not overwhelm them with settings and options and whatnot.
>>10259569I like pokemon but at 400% to skip all the inbetween pauses. Feels like the OG game is padded with half second pauses between everything. >Pikachu is confused>..........>......>It hurt itself in its own confusion>......damage>.....>.....>Onyx used ro->-ck tomb>.....>.....damage>its a critical hit!Its like the game cant do it fast enough or there wasnt enough content so the game had to stretch itself with weird interim pauses.
>>10259353"I prefer to be as invisible as possible to avoid nuisance" is starting to sound a lot more like "My professors/bosses get pissy when I start playing Pokemon on their time and I refuse to admit I'm the one being an asshole in this scenario."
>>10259073How is the heat/battery life?
>>10259353>it just frustrates me how I can't post about my own experiences playing something outside, on /hhg/, without most replies being people feeling spite for me daring to play on a smartphone's screen.Im chill with this on its own. My prob is when someone evangelizes a phone when Im asking about handhelds, talking shit on handhelds, and then I bounce back with all the stuff I need to do to make my phone useful for my use-case and they get all pissy like they didnt tee this all up by pretending my battery is infinite or Ive got a butler carrying all my peripherals and battery bricks. Fine yeah, phone is cool for you and im chill with it, pretty sure you're not even the phone guy saming as 3 people who all magically post at the same time same manner, but if its "hey whats a good car" and they go "just fly, flap your arms real hard", thats not a real argument. Its about simplicity for me, tiny gaming thing 5hrs, phone all day, keys, wallet, done. None of this "just phone, oh and everything you need to make my phone advice realistic".
>>10259785not them, but I got one and I'm pretty happy. heats up if you do GC and the like on it but otherwise there's hardly any heat to speak of.battery life's not amazing but it's good. been playing SNES for a few hours on 3/4ths brightness and only gone down 30%, and it only loses like, single digits of battery if left on sleep mode overnight.
>>10259794Have you ever tried a 'windows on android' emulator? I've been curious about how those would handle on a chinese handheld (and if the low resolution/screen size just makes playing pc games on them unfeasible)
>>10259318This part I dont get, I used to play RCT in-class and nobody ever outed me. This was before phone-brain really took off though. You gotta earn your game time now, but own it. Dunk on everyone to the point that you gaming during school or work is like "I need a break from dunking on you guys"
>>10259438>also no internet access.you can just firewall their mac address of the device on your router
>>10259792for me it's more like, a phone kinda defeats the purpose of the thread. It's not really a handheld system in any meaningful way. It'd be like if you went on a retro console thread and said "I just downloaded project64 on my Windows desktop". like sure, it's a valid way to play games, but that ain't really part of the discussion at hand.
>>10259232I just dont have enough music or my memory is too good. I get tired of any one genre and theres only so many ways to mix up the playlists to not be in the wrong mood for the wrong songs. Its like an audiobook pause or a youtube video you're not maintaining eye contact with, its a kitchen movie you've visually memorized. I dont think most people panic when theyre in another room and the movie's on like "what the fuck is happening? who's 'the joker', whats he mean 'kill-the-batman'?"
>>10259797honestly, never felt the desire to do so. can't think of any windows games id even want to play that'd run well on an emulator that doesn't already have better ways to play em on android
>>10259809Oh make no mistake, we allow "just phone" to go crazier and more needlessly complicated and its going to turn into "just laptop" then "just carry your pc case and wires from room to room". I just want a cheap handheld that can play a 15 minute SNES videogame and all the other games surrounding it PS1 and below. "just phone" is me pinching my fingers on the charging port holding the phone or wireless charging not playing waiting to play and I have to sit there and think "thank god I listened to some anonymous internet guy". Nah yeah, I guess I just need to check in over and over until someone finds a device that can do it for less than 100 dollars. V90 I guess is the only device that can do it right now except for one SNES game, or one I care about.
>>10259438>also no internet accessit's not like they can make tiktoks with them, there's not even a browser or anything. all you can do in most of them is update the firmware, update retroarch, scrape box art
>>10259467I don't feel a need particularly, I just choose to do so because most of the posts replying to mine in these threads are mocking or insulting me, and I attempt to respond to whatever points they got to at least try to have a discussion where I might change someone's mind, though it's not working.>>10259776I don't think I'm being an asshole, and I find it so rude how I'm getting called that for... playing my video games on the go, in a thread about doing just that, I participate and pay attention to most classes, but whenever I'm too tired, or just don't find the class particularly useful to me, I take my little break to do things I'd rather be doing, like playing, I'm doing the exact opposite of being an asshole in this case, since by being as invisible as I can, I avoid interrupting the class in any way...>>10259792I don't do any of these things, I literally just post about what I've been playing and what I played it on, and the context, it's a method that's worked for me, I know it's not for everyone and I'm not pushing it on anyone either, I just wish the thread was more like this, users talking about whatever they're playing, and what they're playing on, the impressions they might have, etc... but when I do just that, I either get insulted, mocked, or have a bunch of people trying to paint me as an asshole. I don't know, it's just frustrating how in a thread on portables, I can't talk about my experiences...>>10259801I don't fear anyone might out me, it's just that I want to avoid any sort of attention while I play, I'm not looking forward to people asking me on my classes about me playing and stuff, when I'm in class and turn on a ROM, it's because I'm bored and want to immerse myself in something while time passes by and I get closer to going home, I just want to be left alone in those moments...
>>10259838>at least try to have a discussion where I might change someone's mind, though it's not working
>>10259838Anon, I'm gonna be 100% with you. You got issues you need to deal with. You say you just wanna discuss the games you're playing and whatnot, and yet the mere idea of someone actually bringing them up to you in person is enough for you to not even get a handheld in the first place. Bite the bullet, get some cheap Anbernic or something like that, play video games on a video game system, and if someone wants to ask you about it, let them, and enjoy the discussion.
>>10259838>I literally just post about what I've been playing and what I played it on, and the contextYet here you are, shitting up a thread with your blogposting.
>>10259838>I just wish the thread was more like this, users talking about whatever they're playing, and what they're playing onI think we're in the same boat and we both found what works for us more or less, but then theres one guy posing as 3, and a few starting shit to bump the thread or for attention/free stimulation. Im surrounded by devices most days, just this on-the-go part kills my phone battery (1), limits my game library due to practical price(2), or (3) requires I carry heaps of junk to eliminate problem (1) and (2). Instead of a solution (4), im getting pitched one of three options over and over from bent out of shape "you have to be me or else Im gonna cry" anons. Yeah it sucks. Dont get me wrong tho'. Its not a death sentence to carry all the fun stuff, especially on my last vacation innawoods it was like some sort of internet-free zen to just do movies/music/podcats on phone, play games on the handheld or tablet and just cram soda and eat Italian toasted sandwiches all night long in cold breezy silence. But at work or general boring downtime the choice is (1) nuke phone battery (2) carry a charged batt bank at all times to avoid 1', (3) buy and carry a tiny gaming handheld and still have all-day use of phone without asking store clerks to let me charge my phone or hanging out in the car to recharge. It gets so annoying when the simpler solution is to make everything complex. Handheld, phone, done. V90 remains peak handheld under 80-100 dollars till proven otherwise I guess.
>>10259838>I don't feel a need particularly, I just choose to do soYou're making a really great case for seeming like you need to do it though. You were making some progress earlier, listening to advice and going a few posts without images, now you're back to long paragraphs per reply and avatarfagging again only with disney instead of sonic. You're obsessed and you don't even realize it or are pretending you don't realize it. Ask yourself why you've been met with abrasive responses every step of the way and reapply yourself.
>>10259453It doesn't have everything.
>>10259863He can't just enjoy things though, he's scared of being seen as "that guy who plays vidya in class" but tries to talk around that fact rather than admit it. Watch, he's writing an essay in response to this right now.
>>10259913Let me guess, your list needs more?
>>10259809This is bullshit. First off, half of these "handhelds" are running android software on the same chips used in phones. Go figure. As well aside from the stupid touchscreen argument, a flagship phone/premium phone can emulate up to gamecube and ps2 maybe even more if you use something like the samsung galaxy ultra that recently came out with "12 fucking gigs of ram" in it. But no no no no.... i need to reduce my self to buying a fucking miyoo mini because it suits your fucking niche? Suck my fucking dick. So a handheld wrapped around android software and a chip using the same google play and shit is somehow sooo fucking superior. I have a device in my hand that can play all these games, with a solid controller I enjoy as a peripheral but NOOOOO NOOO NOOOO I need to buy another fucking handheld device to carry around with me that's neutered to be gaming only becauase some faggot on the handheld generals board will rage post for a fucking hour about it with no better argument then "its not authentic enough! Its not a real handheld," fuck you faggot, fuck you and the hole you crawled out of. I am the KISHI poster btw. And some of us aren't autistic fucking mongoloids with a FOMO urge to spend money on EVEN MORE SHIT. Why? When phones get upgraded all the time and it gives a repurposed value to an older phone you might not be using. I DON't GIVE A FUCK! I'LL POST WHAT THE FUCK I WANT YOU FUCKING SHILLS. OH AND the reoccuring agreements and posts from plenty of others that do the same shows how commonplace an option it is. But by all means faggot; screech until the cows come home. No one fucking cares. And its hilarious bwcause you shit up your own fucking thread with the 100+ fucking replies with you talking to yourself and ego tripping over something so NON-CONSEQUENTIAL TO BEGIN WITH. Eat a dick, which you probably do because this is high tier fucking troon logic to begin with. YWNBAW.
>>10258849exciting. so it's not shelved at least.
>>10259821You retarded nigger. My phone lasts for fucking hours and I've never gotten lower than 50% battery life on the longest of my sessions. Have NEVER needed a battery for it.
>>10259863Shut the fuck up you retarded fucking shill.
>>10259869You've done more to shit up this board then anyone here. The rope is on aisle 20. Do the fucking needful.
>>10259252just make sure the amazon order is fulfilled by a legit company and not some rando with 5 reviews
>>10259920Yeah he needs to buy a miyoo mini doesn't he? Fucking shill.
>>10259947Why let random chinkholder opinions live in your head rent free like this
>>10259417you can start with the "tiny best set go" which is meant for the miyoo mini, it has a good selection for everything up to 4th gen + a bit of PS1. there's not really any "rom packs" for the disc based consoles in general because of the sheer size of the files, people just tend to download what they like.
>>10259961I'm here to call out what a fucking shill you are, and remind you to do the needful. And if you're not the target of my ire then fuck off. Because these faggots live here rent free and fuck up the board. And yeah again, ill post what i fucking want. And call out these lame fucks in front of everyone, because they WILL NOT have a come back that isn't some alt tactic to shill some more. It's called leveling the playing field. I'm looking out for those watching and simply dishing out what they've been projectile vomiting for like this entire fucking thread.
PhoneGODs...I'm thinking we're back.
>>10259947based phonefag. I'm own a rp3+ and a pspgo so I'm not phonefag team but you got good arguments, I respect that. (I also think playing on Android chinkheld got a weird "phone" feel aftertaste)
>>10259947>>10259969No one's saying phones are an inherently bad way to play games, we're just saying it's not really related to what we're talking about. That "fucking niche" you're complaining about is literally the point of this thread.You don't go on a thread about cars and say "I just use uber", you don't go on a thread about food and say "I just get doordash", you don't go on a thread about vinyl and say "I just use Spotify". This is a thread for talking about handheld game consoles. Don't get pissed when the people here prefer handheld game consoles, and if you can't do that, go to /vmg/
>>10259947sir, this is the handhelds thread. the phone thread is on /g/
The lolcow just exploded.https://desuarchive.org/vr/thread/10243537/#q10248015
>>10259987>No one's saying phones are an inherently bad way to play gamesThis your first thread?
>>10260004Oh, people have absolutely said it before. But I'm saying nobody he's replying to has.
>>10259987>>10259987You're splitting hairs.Look; it's an old phonw that has been turned into a handheld gaming device....Now go on, mouth off some more about how it doesn't relate to the HANDHELD thread because it's not an ambernic.... go on....For the rest of (Yous) I honestly don't hate on handhelds. Like I have before and will say again that the miyoo, the retroid pocket series, and one or two others have a solid reputation. I honestly almost pulled the trigger on an RP3. But I will fucking goe toe to toe with anyone prepared to die on a hill claiming that this isn't a legit way to game. "not your preference?" Thats fine. Ive had plenty of civilized convos on this board with people about the pros and cons of each. Not a handheld? It literally plays retro games in my hands... anyone saying otherwise and harassing the fuck out of people is just splitting hairs or shilling. I know there are some quality peeps here and I love you. (shout out to that dude with the cute kohai psps stylized, everytime I see that shit, I kawaii!" And thats why I like this board. The variety of discussion and ways that people play games....in their hands....also, again, Ill post what I want. And if you go on a 100+ reply tangent in some autistic manner. Expect a clapback. If you agree to disagree, and move on, then expect respect.
Can we post some RECS instead of faggy larps about playing in public like tards?Pic related
>>10260034If you want recs you can literally make a thread for that
>>10260034I recommend Atari 2600 stuff in general, but to be more specific... Adventure, Asteroids, Berzerk, Enduro, Haunted House, HERO, Pitfall, Pitfall 2, Raiders of the Lost Arc, River Raid, Space Invaders and Yars' Revenge... because they're so ideal for handhelds, when you have a few minutes to play and want something easy to just pick up and play for a while before putting it down. Atari 7800's the same due to being quite similar to the Atari 2600 in style of software.
>>10259947I couldn't have made a more BASED post if I tried it, Kishi poster... I agree 100% with you, it's crazy how anyone that dares use a phone instead of a dedicated handheld gets treated like garbage by most here, when most of these handhelds are on Android anyway, to a lot of people using an older phone with a controller they can find for cheap is just more convenient and affordable than any of those handhelds, as good as they might be. Keep being based and making based posts to defend our fellow phonefags, Kishi poster, you're telling the truth and many just can't stand to hear it.
>>10260059Much love home. Going to bed. See you on the flip side. <(^w^)>
>>10260050Worst rec I've seen on this board
Reminds me of owning a pi, but V90 is actually pretty chill if you look past it not being able to SNES or MS DOS a few games. Basically playing PC ports on PS1. Yet again wishing there were more complex pc games for ps1, starcraft would have been sick or getting Moo1 or 2 to work on it.
>>10260050atari is based but i prefer rpg on mobilesmall screen, usually cant keep up with twitch fast gameplayatari defender is something i only want to play on crt
>>10259773I wish there were ROM hacks or maybe even a decompilation or something that speeds things up. Sure, you can fast forward, but then selecting things from menu are bit trickier as cursor suddenly goes faster as well, music gets sped up etc.
>>10260192>but then selecting things from menu are bit trickierEnjoy it since it's the only challenge you'll get playing those games
>>10259773I believe this is because english has much lower information density per character than japanese kanji. The pokedex has 2 screens in english but only 1 in japanese for example.There absolutely should be romhacks around that improve this though, they do exist for GBA and later at the very least.
>>10260261the vanilla ones sure, these are primarily games for 7-year olds; but there's rom hacks there that up the challenge if you really want it
>>10260059You deserve this. The handheld threads existed just to follow the stream of new chinkhelds released last year. No such thread for general handhelds existed and previous attempts eventually evaporated. People come here everyday to learn news about new handhelds being released. For more than a year, retards phonefaggots keeps regurgitating the same trite line "Just use your phone, it is enough". Rightfully you were bullied but now you want to play the victim. If you want to talk about phones, go to /g/, is that simple. If you don't get why people dislike you, it's your own problem.
>>10256741I used this for a few months a while back. The weight distribution is horrendous. Very uncomfortable for play sessions longer than 5 minutes. My wrists hurt just looking at this. Moved on to an Xbox One controller with clamp, but the clamp was scratching the controller. I finally bought a horizontally-telescoping controller. Horizontal setups are superior. Even better when you connect it to USB.
>>10260476Conversations about original handhelds are acceptable here, there just isn't a whole lot to talk about unless you just modded one or something. Phone fags can get fucked though.
>>10254450not really. can even go semiportable
>>10254410Have any of you lot bought one of these third party emulation devices? If so, what do you do with your original /vr/ machines? Feels like a waste to have systems like my old GBA SP collecting dust in the closet, but realistically, I'm never going to use it over this new thing. Worse screen, battery life, etc. Maybe I'll give it to a nephew or sell it or something.
>>10260708>Have any of you lot bought one of these third party emulation devices?no, we spent 428 messages talking about them but none of us actually own one.>If so, what do you do with your original /vr/ machines?keep it at the bottom of a drawer
>>10260708>Have any of you lot bought one of these third party emulation devices?Many of us own at least one of those, yes>what do you do with your original /vr/ machines?Sold my NDS and PSP a long, long way ago
Are there any cheap GBA flash cards? Like R4 but for GBA?
>>10260728none that are worth using. just emulate.
>>10260476I'll post whatever the fuck I want, and you will seethe and cope as usual. The validity has already been proven and you just fuck up the thread by kvetching and protesting because. "its not an authentic handheld"
>>10260514Agreed. I love my kishi v1. I too have a gamesir bluetooth and I'll say that it works for nintendo games in particular. That being said, I'd try a kishi v2 or a backbone as well as they look comfy.
>>10260476Not included in that post is the fact that phones with controllers connected often have extremely noticeable input delay. It's the main reason I don't just use my phone.
>>10260721>Sold my NDS and PSPBuy them back. The nds for nds games and the psp for everything else.
>>10260476>You deserve this.>For more than a year, retards phonefaggots keeps regurgitating the same trite line "Just use your phone, it is enough".>Rightfully you were bullied but now you want to play the victim.>If you don't get why people dislike you, it's your own problem."A few phonefags successfully trolled me and it pissed me off, so now I feel like that justifies me treating anyone that plays on their phone, even if they treat me well, like absolute garbage."I can't think of something more petty than this, the way you wrote this reply sounds like you're feeling genuinely resentful, like a war, and it's cringe beyond belief, so please just grow up and touch grass, faggot.
>>10261003I never had a problem with it, the input registers similar to a bluetooth controller on something like a PS4, these controllers have come a long way, then again I know it's a personal thing and my experience isn't the same as everyone else's, but for me at least, it works perfectly fine there.
>>10261012Yeah, no thanks, i'm happy with my odin lite now
>>10260708If it's an AGS-101 you could sell it for a fair whack.
>>10261034>I can't think of something more petty than thisI can>>10259947
>>10258881I'm still on my smartphone, because it's what has been working for me. I decided to play an action based title this time, as opposed to platformers, and went for Spider-Man vs. The Kingpin... I love how they added a photo mechanic, to buy Peter's web fluid, and resting in your apartment for your health, it feels immersive. I adore the moveset, it feels just like how the character is supposed to... add to that an atmospheric and dark OST, with a visual style with proper identity, that looks good, and we have a fantastic time. I recommend this a lot to anyone.P.S. I won't reply to posts that are trying to insult me or that are rude due to resentment towards me, I don't want a thread I like to have dozens of posts where we argue, I prefer to see us talk about what we're playing, and the devices we love to play.
Did all the /hhg/ shitposters wake up at the same time today?
>>10260192heh yeah, I can tolerate it until theres an A loop I forget about like cheaply healing up at a pokecenter to skip poison heals or super potions while grinding in the field. >your pokemon are fully healed>thank yo->ok we'll heal your pokemon again>your pokemon are fully healed
>>10260625Im here for upgrade advice for a handheld that has a battery capacity longer than 5hrs (sorry phones) and cheaper than 80-100 dollars (sorry phones) with actual buttons (sorry phones). Has to be small enough to fit in a pocket comfortably (sorry 'eck). All that said, pretty sure Ive got the best handheld to do everything Im looking for until the more expensive small ones get a price drop.
>>10261163play rom hacks that skip pokecenter text, some even spit you out backward after healing so you don’t get caught in the loop
>>10256103hey i've been playing metroid fusion and castlevanias on my miyoo mini plus too. are you actually my FBI agent handler and this is a sign that i am being monitored? btw SF2000 is the best value retro handheld
>>10256928she's locked in your basement right now isn't she>>10257038i wonder what % of this thread is paid posters. 33% is a conservative estimatet. guy who has bought two retro handhelds based on recommendations from this thread (powkiddy v90 and sf2000)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Msbgm0BVPBgCan basically emulate everything.
>>10257450i didn't know they sold anything besides the mini+
>>10257587actually out of 3 times i've used a handheld in public i have had strangers asking me what i'm using and how they can get one. one of them was a single mom who wanted one for her son and i could tell that my suave demeanor + tech savvy was getting her panties wetter than the Lee County Floodhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUnZWP-K2Fc
>>10261283they made the bittboy, rk2020, and pocket go s30 as wellunder the miyoo line though obviously just the mini/mini plus so far, with the p60 in that image you replied to seemingly having prototype models out but not ever coming to marketwhich is a shame cause the form factor is super good and the helio p60 is in punching-range of the t618for all the shit people give miyoo they still have the best inputs, and the p60 would be my pick over a rp3+/rp2s/some anbernig trash
>>10259027if you want something bigger i really like my anbernic rg351v. its about the size of an old gameboy color and plays everything up to ps1 well
Playing MGS Peace Walker at 3x resolution, 60 FPS, and right Analog enabled on my S23 SD 8 Gen 2 and Kishi V2 is pure bliss
I want a console that can play GC, PS3 and PC games.So, I was thinking on getting either an Ayaneo 2S or an Air 1S.I don't know if the 5.5" screen on the 1S would make characters seem too small for games like Hades and GoW3.And I don't if the 2S is too bulky to provide a comfy game session even outside my home.Disregarding their price difference, which one would you pick?
>>10261283If you were around in 2019 this was the miyoo handheld
>>10261474The Steam Deck
>>10261448I love how these threads don't even pretend to be /vr/ related anymore, but the jannies refuse to nuke this 'general' on sight because they don't want to piss off the chinkshit marketers.
The rk3588s Gameforce 2 apparently has a 5.5" 1080p screen and 5500mAh battery. Ridiculous value at $159 before shipping and taxes. Can't cope with d-pad on bottom tho.https://gameforce.fun/products/gameforce-ace-rk3588s-gaming-handheld
>>10261552passively watching this curveball from gameforce too, simply impossible to blindly preorder any of these chinkhelds – need retro goym corps or plebbitors to beta test firstotherwise for value and what they’re promising, it looks super good. 3588s is basically end game, so it’s probably best to wait for the second or third device that has this soc since everyone just copies everyone
>>10261561p.s. it’s advertised as an android device but linux options are being worked on for the 3588s so don’t discount it just for that
>>10261552The catch is that the buttons will feel like shit and the software will need massive amount of fixes.
>>10261602Think that goes without saying, yeah. That and generally shit build quality, terrible quality control of components, taking months to actually ship, etc. If there are any madmen that actually want to order this atm, "OBSCURE" works as a discount code. The non-preorder price is going to be $220.
Which one of these things is the most powerful but still has a 4:3 screen? I want to play Dreamcast and maybe some Saturn games of possible.
>>10256839Sounds like some sort of energy saving mode.
>>10261773holy. fucking. kino.
>>10261773Looks pretty ugly desu
Nuggetposter. Didn't post the "You still need more" photo because I was busy with this. Best purchase I've ever made. Hope the Nugget console doesn't hear this.
>>10260708>Have any of you lot bought one of these third party emulation devices? Yes>If so, what do you do with your original /vr/ machines?They're in my drawer like everything else I don't use anymore.>Feels like a waste to have systems like my old GBA SP collecting dust in the closetThat pretty well applies to everything. I don't use my original gameboy, color, advance, DS, DSi or 3DS anymore and just play my Switch and chink device. Soon enough The Switch 2 will come out and I probably won't touch my Switch and a new chink device will replace my 353v sooner rather than later because chinks are starting to put the RK3588 in things.
>>10258891>I messed around on my smartphone and nobody cared, becaus everyone was doing it, it doesn't get people's attention at all, and that's a thing I appreciate a lot, since in situations like this what I want most is to be invisible for a while, just to focus on what I'm doing and not much else...If you don't think people aren't noticing you have your phone in landscape and are tapping away at it like a retard because you're using touch controls for an action game while Mickey Mouse jumps around your screen you're pretty god damn delusional.
>>10261873Normalfags don't pay attention to their surroundings
>>10261807Nice, which screen kit did you go with? IPS3.0?
Got my retroid pocket 2S, it looks great and im setting it up. Any bios packs I can drag and drop? Im too lazy to hunt down the bios for each emulator right now.
>>10261998I usually just throw my bios folder from my already setup Retroarch on PC on my handhelds.
>>10262017damn guess I gotta hunt it down then
>>10261998CDR has a page full of bios files that you just need to drop into the RA System folder. Also if you ever had a linux-based chinkheld that came with games, just select everything from the bios folder in that and drop it into RA System folder.
>>10262028Oh good idea, I'll have to pull out my chinkheld then.
>>10261513how is a thread about devices that only play retro games not on topic in the retro games forum
>>10262127Just ignore and report the shitposter.
>>10256528Miyoo mini clamshell with DS emulation; I'd buy it
I had a dream that I was using something like a miyoo mini but you could take the screen out and use it as a touchpad-capable wireless display monitor.
>>10262203>you could take the screen out and use it as a touchpad-capable wireless display monitor.That sounds super useless
>>10260708Just a deck. Still hang onto to them (PSP, 3DS, Vita) because they're mine and nobody else can have them (and I don't want to go through the hassle of selling them).
>>10261479I was so close to buying one of these but I got my RS-90 that year instead. And now I've finally come full circle and am back to playing Tetris again lol
>>10261513>Peach walker is leh retroGoyslops2, nogcube, shitsp and goyds are not only not retro, buy they started the trend for faggple-a-cucklelist "goyme reviewers". And hitman and syphon filtered are the white man's spy games. Meteally sneered and spilinter cell are nogpple-a-cucknorist trash.
>>10259668Not that anon but after you mentioned this I managed to find one for cheap and decided to buy this for my friend instead of >>10256928>>10261273V90 is a good handheld, I bought mine in 2020. Most of the handhelds I like are just no name Famiclones or emulators, if I had the money for an Analogue or Anbernic I would probably just spend it on a few cheap handhelds and maybe a few books or something lol
>>10262258BASED BASED BASED
>>10262281>Not that anon but after you mentioned this I managed to find one for cheap and decided to buy this for my friend instead of >>10256928Nice. Hope she likes it. Don't forget to properly feed and water her if you do have her locked in the basement like >>10261273 said.
Look at this cutie
>>10262281If her goal is gna, I think she'd be dissapointed with the sf2000. That old anbernic handheld sucks too. If landscape formfactor is important, the rg plus might be a better fit.
>>10262318Are the games actually playable at that size? Looks even smaller than the PocketSprite
>>10262342Games are extremely simple, but playable
>>10254452i almost bought one, then instead I bought a plane ticket to japan and then a motorcycle. might still get one some point
I fucking swear, linux just feels right on these handhelds in a way I can't explain, and I'm not even a linux fan for desktop use.I bought an RP3+ ages back and something about it felt completely off and I sold it pretty quickly.Got in my vertislop 353v and holy shit, everything just feels right. Finishing up my per console shaders and I'm gonna enjoy some Donkey Kong '94
>>10262436I feel the same, but for me it's because I just hate touchscreens, screens are a display, they shouldn't get all smudged from our fingers, Android can suck my balls, and fuck Steve Jobs, buttons all the way.
>>10262195reporting is for faggots. teacher, teacher, johnny is misbehaving. disgusting behavior
>>10262539Kek>nooooo please don't tell on me!
>>10262443>and fuck Steve Jobsas a phone owner, he made a phone beyond a phone but he didnt put "oh and make the battery practical, dont make the phone smaller and pretend a better processor can save the battery" in the will clearly. They just kept making smaller phones and everyone copied it. As if the screen got more efficient because the processor got more efficient, get fucked. >buttons all the way.The icing on-top. I understand if youre willing to live with charging all day, but phones in the real world as gaming devices either you only play for 20 seconds, you never call text facetime email youtube or you've got some magic battery.
>>10262653You mean thinner phones right? Because nowadays it’s quite hard to find a small phone, everything feels like a tablet.
>>10262653Look here.First off, debloat. If you don't you're a dumb ass for leaving corporate spyware shit in your phone, . Easy to do with UAD. If you're a badass, you use a custom rom and can over/underclock it. There now that half or more of the software that came preinstalled is gone, voila. A much, much longer battery life. If I charge my shit and leave it in the cupboard for 7 days it will still be at 99 if not 100%. This nonsense you posted, is just that, nonsense. And anyone with half a brain knows it. Now!let's take it a step further and remove google play services altogether and use foss apks from fdroid and grab some emulator apks from online and one can turn their phone into a stand alone gaming handheld. I have never needed to charge my shit during the longest play sessions, even on intensive games. So, try, try again.Also, just did a quick search on amazon with a 150-200$ price filter. I can get stronger cpu/chips and more ram then half of what's entertained here for similar prices.(6gb is easy to get at this price range and no over seas tax either) Which is what; I'll do. Because my phones have lasted me years. Who here has had a chink device for years and still used it? I'm honestly curious; seeings how they pump out a new model EVERY other week. I finished my shopping and spending some time ago. With more games then I'll probably ever get around to playing. My cupboard is not a collectathon of cheap plastic trash though.Hmmm, its a hard decision... to buy underperforming tech for the same price thay I could buy over achieving tech?It'd be a better tactic, o make room for the phone kings, because we're not going anywhere. We'd respect you more if it didn't feel like pol level shillery. Paying a similar price for nostalgic sentiment versus paying the same price for expanded capability and better hardware. (It's the same hardware that they use for these handhelds btw, usually older/outdated stuff that's cheap to buy in bulk)
>>10262689Do what this anon said, but dont debloat because services shit still function if you dont root and uninstall. Next, get a rom or kernal with the performance governer to remove sneedput lag compltely. Finally, dump that shit and get an iphone with trollstore so you dont support companies that donate to cirmcumsision centers.
>>10262653So, now that that's settled, let me help YOU sell YOUR products. Get together with the team and discuss not harassing the shit out of anyoNe that doesn't play YOUR way. Make room. Sell some controllers. I have a lot of respect for what these handhelds represent, I do. But when your marketing teams do shit like this. It just further pushes away customers. "wait, if I buy this handheld, I'll be on this deuchebag's level....yikes" you keep shilling away with lies that' it's not a completely viable alternative. It is. Which is why people do it plenty. No battery? Yeah right. PLENTY of battery. No need at all to hover around an outlet. SteamdeckRetroid pocketOdinA very select FEW devices here and there catch my attention. I said before, I almost pulled the trigger on an rp3 and will state today that it seems to be a really solid device. But everytime you fucks shit on a psp owner, or a ds owner, or a gameboy modder, or a phone player. You're shooting yourself in the foot. Your marketing tactics SUCK. GIT GUD.
>>10262693Never buying anything apple, but nice try.https://www.abc4.com/news/tech-social-media/yes-your-iphone-is-taking-invisible-pictures-of-you/

phonefags were extra aggressive in this thread
>>10262653For me it's how companies made it so opening the phone to replace the battery voids the warranty and the way they've begun to phase out sd card slots
>>10262701Fake news, debunked.
how do u do fellow kidz?
>>10262653>what is a phone charger? for 300 alex
>>10262832I think the story was more complex then that, and this time Anti-PhoneFags have their share of the blame>A PhoneFag made a few posts about what he played in class and got mocked for it by some>He got really defensive and made sure to respond to everyone instead of just chilling about it>Had dozens of shills lose their minds over daring to play Sonic and Mickey BingBingYahoo on a phone>Thread became a PhoneFag hate thread for a while yet again because of a few ultimately harmless posts>KishiFag got more agressive as a response to his fallen PhoneFag comrade and started attacking back>People got mad at KishiFag, but he didn't fall like his comrade that was more of a sensitive fagI think the mistake was ganging up on the Sonic avatar fag when we has just being autistic like any Sonic fanEither way, we lost a bunch of posts on this when we could've been discussing actual handheld stuff yet again
>>10262914To be fair it was a necessary gatekeep response to someone continuing to blogpost essays about playing on their phone in class and avatarfagging every single post. I'm not defending bullying per se, just noting that it's a natural response like when a pitbull sees a human child and needs to rip its face off.
>>10262930I know, I just feel that for a website with so much autism, we lacked comprehension to someone that was clearly just sperging (Sonic avatarfagging really gives it away for me at least) and ultimately I felt this gatekeeping was bad for the thread, it turned a couple of harmless posts about Bing Bing Yahooing in class into a bunch of posts which just make the thread die way quicker.This is also /vr/ and yet these threads talk very little about the retro stuff we play and want to own these emulation consoles for, I personally don't mind a few posts from people talking about what they're playing and how they're doing it, makes these generals feel more like a community, even if we're all divided in groups that hate each other, those posts just have to be shorter.
>>10262914Can we objectively discuss phonefagging vs chinkhelds?The reason I prefer chinkheld is because I loathe touchscreen controls, and strapping a telescoping controller thingy is jankier and feels worse than just picking up a chinkheld.>But you already have a $1500 phone...No I don't. Jesus who spends that amount of a portable, simple device subject to daily wear and tear and occasional shock damage?A phone is only for communication, browsing Internet and the occasional productive app (car parking payment etc).
>>10262950I hate touchscreen controls too, and controllers because they don't solve the negative space and aspect ratio problems that phones have, but as much as normal people like us can't get into them, because they suck, it seems that there are people that play with them, and at the end of the day it's their device and playthrough, we can prefer chinkhelds, or official handhelds too, but we have fags on these threads that prefer their phones, and if we decide to go after them with each post they make, we'll lose about 100+ post in each thread over it, when we could've been discussing news and topics we're actually interested in talking about in the thread.I think that unless phonefags are actively being cunts and talking shit about either official handhelds or chinkhelds, or going about how we should "just use your phone" then being aggressive towards them might just want to make them piss us off more, if people just want to play on their phone, fine, it's their choice to be fags.
I think phones should count as handhelds, in exchange for phonefags actually discussing their hardware, rather than constantly bitching about people choosing not to use phones.It's strange, for a board about retrogaming, there's a small but very annoying group who get really, really upset when people dare use hardware designed for retrogaming, rather than just repurposing [insert device they happen to own here]. See also: MiSTer threads.
>>10262704cleanrom used to be my shiggybut something better is probably out nowfrom the days before twerp & custom rootdont do banking and shit on there once u circumvent the security
>>10262982I have to agree, 100% on this one.Still, to be fair, the only time in this specific thread where a PhoneFag lashed out, that I remember at least, was the KishiFag, whose posts seem exaggerated on purpose for the most part on most threads, I often get a chuckle out of them even, it was only this time where I felt he was more pissy, but that was AFTER the autistic Sonic PhoneFag got bullied for a dozen posts, so maybe that ticked him, afterall he wasn't even bitching about people not using their phones, we was just being a blog posting faggot, but still mostly harmless, and that still derailed the thread with people getting pissed at him.I feel it's better if we don't kick the hornet nest, most of the "just use your phone" faggots seem to have left thankfully, so let's avoid turning the few PhoneFags that stayed into obnoxious PhoneFags like those.
