Wanted big tent for a trip in a couple of weeks. Spotted a bargain on FB marketplace, had to put it up to check it was all there. It was. Bargain! Darkened bedrooms, room to stand, the lot. (There's a pole for the front porch, I just haven't bothered with it, which is the main reason for it looking a little sad.)

Looks like one of the Coleman tents that stay nice and dark inside. A family friend has one similar, and they really like it. Looks like a good find there JBR.

that, too. You can get a steak and cheese ciabatta, chips, and a pint for less than a tenner at lunch there.

I bought TWO LITRES of whipping cream because it was marked down to £1.08.

We now have a kilogram of butter and a litre of buttermilk :D

A while ago I bought this thing. A Powkiddy (worst brand name ever) RGB30. It's lovely but the d-pad was awful and the face buttons weren't great.

So I've bought a new d-pad, buttons and membranes and it has massively improved it.

Not sure if anyone here is into Pico-8 but you should be. It runs great on this because of the 1:1 ratio screen.

They're pretty cheap. WhatGeek are doing them for 52 quid if you want a UK seller. I think I bought mine direct from China though

Ideally you want two proper branded SD cards. One for your game files and one for the operating system. I switched from JelOS to ArkOS (simple to do). There is a great guide about how to do that.

I swapped out the d-pad for one from an Anbernic device and it was a big improvement. Had to order the d-pad from Anbernic via AliExpress but they sent a spare, so I'm happy to send you one.

I didn’t have any problems with the standard d-pad on here

As well as pico8 it also does gb and gbc really well

I did like the supplied OS ( JELOS) but as it’s no longer supported I also switched to ArkOS

Zaph, I got a lot of false diagonals. Fine for most games though.

Pico-8 is a joy!

Might just be builds / revisions (I've had mine for a while) or may be that i'm not playing anything that needs precise directional controls

Retrogamecorps has reviews of virtually all of these devices - https://www.youtube.com/c/retrogamecorps

He has a really good page on this device here : https://retrogamecorps.com/2023/10/27/p ... ter-guide/ and does cover swapping the membranes out , 3d printing some d-pad spacers , and adding tape to cover for false diagonals if you wanted other options.

Excellent, thanks Zaphod. I keep being tempted by the Odin 2, while also doubting I'll have much time to use it. This might be a cheaper way to scratch the itch.

The Retroid Pocket 4 Pro is a bit cheaper than the Odin 2 but can do PS2/GameCube.

The RGB30 tops out at PS1/Dreamcast but definitely has it's own strengths. For example, the screen is great for vertical aspect arcade games.
