GameForce Chi Guide

GameForce Chi Guide

Last updated: 06JUN2021 (see Changelog for details)

The GameForce Chi shouldn’t exist — its design is garish, it runs the agin RK3326 chipset, and it looks like it traveled through time from the 1990s to reach us here in the 2020s. But somehow, it all seems to work out in the end. So in this guide I’ll show you how to set the device up, some tips and tricks, as well as a teardown video.

Guide: CD-Based Systems on Retro Handhelds

Last updated: 09JUL2021

Today we’re going to discuss systems like PlayStation 1, Dreamcast, Sega CD, and TurboGrafx-CD (PC Engine CD). Let’s organize your files and learn how to switch discs in multi-disc games, too.

This guide applies to any RK3326 retro handheld system, such as the RG351 series, PowKiddy RGB10, ODROID Go Advance/Super, and so on. This will also apply to any device that runs an EmulationStation frontend, such as the Super Console X. The video primarily focuses on the 351ELEC firmware for the RG351 devices, but can be applied to ArkOS, EmuELEC, RetroOZ, or any other EmulationStation-based operating system that runs on these devices.

Sonic 1, Sonic 2, and Sonic CD Ports on Retro Handhelds

Sonic 1, Sonic 2, and Sonic CD Ports on Retro Handhelds

In this video I’ll show you how to install the beautiful, widescreen 2013 mobile versions of Sonic 1, Sonic 2, and Sonic CD on any device running EmuELEC 4.0 firmware — including the ODROID Go Super, PowKiddy RGB10, and the Super Console X. And it can all be done for free! I really like these ports because they take advantage of widescreen devices like the ODROID Go Super, giving you an opportunity to play these games in a whole new way.

UPDATE: As of 01MAY2021, the Sonic ports are now available on ArkOS.

This is all thanks to a decompilation of the Sonic games, which you can find here.
