  1. My OpenBOR games are running better than the one in your example there – specifically on the audio crackling, although I have a *bunch* of them and I’ve only tested around a dozen (and to be fair, I’ve run across 2 so far that don’t play at all). Which are the ones you tried as I’d like to see if my results are similar on those?


  2. Great update and great video. I wonder if the arkOS developer will be incorporating the same features into his next update. I hope so. I don’t want to keep reflashing my sd card to the currently best system, or setting up two cards.


  3. For some reason the controls do not work on the PS1 emulator. I can exit the running game, and duckstation works (with poor performance). I’m pretty sure i have the right bios files, every other system works fine. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong.
