@galaxis @brennen @Iutech yea, i have this time and time again with USB DVDROMs, especially hooked up to PI or other low-power devices. I heard a 3A / 5V power adapter on a Pi4 can help, but when i build such setups, i just supply additional power using a Y-Cable.

Placed 1st in the short film competition! :)



@galaxis i am not too sure either if its related. Just wanted to mention it - i ran into similar problems on a Rpi4 (KODI setup) with USB (hi-gain) WIFI + USB-DVDROM.

@galaxis hmmmm power issue? I cannot make my USB CDROM work properly with the PI unless i feed external power via a Y-Cable.

Sneak peak at v2.5. Will include Images in List views, performance fixes. Also, App will go paid-only soon again.

The RetroHQ Jaguar Gamedrive is recommendable, does what it claims. High price point is understandable due to low volume production. But oh my many of these games are horrible :-)

It warms my heart how someone wrote this impressive 512 byte game for wasm4 using their very own homebrew web assembly programming language.


In a recent eBay iOS app update, the deep-linking function failed, making eBay links non-functional. The new 2.4 release, now in App Store review and hopefully launching soon, addresses the issue.

finally managed to snag one of the few Jaguar gamedrive units. Really looking forward to playing more abysmal games on failed platforms.

@amolith Hey Amolith it may seem really lame, but reflecting on it, i would have been better served not saying this / might cause a shitstorm dissecting this publically - and i do not have the time & desire to manage any of that. If you want,I ll gladly have a chat about it with you. Your or my BBB? plz DM me

@amolith what is/are the goal(s) of the test? I will not touch many of those with a stick, but curious what you are trying to achieve. Yours, fellow self Hoster, Emanuel

Launching soon: RetroChecker 2.3 - new this time: Support for Brazilian Real and Korean Won, more efficient use of screen space on smaller iPhones, bug fix to prevent a rare crash (when opening certain PS5 titles)

i keep forgetting that Emacs is an ancient piece of software with much cruft that has accrued throughout the ages

…and as a result feel optimistic (after some blissfully ignorant months) about removing the C from its code, in an attempt to modify it, only to hit the surface of its waters at great speed, being smashed as if it were concrete x’D

RetroChecker 2.1 is out on the iOS AppStore now, make sure to grab this update - many usability improvements, new layout on Product Detail pages - especially useful on small screens. Video Preview: tube.schleuss.online/videos/wa
