  2. Is there a way I can fix the screen size in Retroarch, when it opens up for a few games in the mini the image looks large and pixelated, I need to zoom it out but I dont see that option.

  3. Is there any manufacturer who just makes something to plug into the Mini that ALREADY has more games on it? No fooling around with downloading etc. Basically just a plug n play for a plug n play?

  4. I'm PC illiterate. How do you get genesis games on your computer to begin with? Got hakchi but no games on my pc to transfer.

  5. To change the Boot image:
    Make or find a 1280×720 PNG image (I made my own), and name it "hakchi.png"
    Hakchi -> Tools -> OpenFTP Client
    Navigate to "/var/lib/hakchi/rootfs/etc/"
    Replace the "hakchi.png" with yours (recommend renaming the old one, as to not loose it).
    Shut off, and turn it back on to enjoy!

  6. Is it possible via hakchi to install the SNES classic UI onto the sega genesis mini. Essentially turning the sega genesis mini into a SNES mini but with a sega genesis shell. I ask as vastly prefer the menu and saving options on the NES and SNES classic as compared to the genesis classic. Having to enter the retroarch menu really cheapens the feel of the classic to me.

  7. Hey bro I am desperate for help. I'm not so PC saviso my question is, do I need to download the roms from a separate web site if so where from? Cheers

  8. Do you know if there's a way to disable the start button from launching Retroarch on the console's main menu? Thanks for your continued efforts!

  9. HELP! my sega mega drive (eu) mini retorach keeps crashing/freezing when i reset the console to acces retroach. I tried all 3 versions of retroch (amped/ozone/rgui), but it keeps chrasing, when useing genesis xtreme core. only the removal of power supply helps, the Power swich on the cosole doenst help. Is there anyone who could guide me with a solution?

  10. Can you add SNES games to the Sega Genesis mini? I tried adding some games, but they don't seem to be working with any of the emulators I've tested. I used project Lunar.

  11. Where do you go to actually download the games to archive them. Or does the software have a library

  12. Broooo…I just got my Genesis mini today, and it's great and ~160 games were slapped on it with HakchiCE 3.8..but Hyper stone guest is giving me the business. I've already tried Both of the Genesis gx cores, and it refuses to play. Even TMNT Tournament Fighters work with the built in core…but not giving up yet😁

    **UPDATE***7:53PM EST***UPDATE**
    TMNT Hyperstone Heist REFUSES to work with either one of the Genesis cores,with my mini. And after further testing, a couple of the games are wonky and will get replaced…I just need to find the RIGHT version of Lion King😁😂. Everything else is running like a dream

  13. Is there a limit to how many games I can add without folders?

    Also, I'm having an issue with my system not being recognized by Hakchi when I turn it on off, and it says it's not online in Hakchi too. Is there a fix for this, because otherwise I have to keep repairing/reinstalling the kernel every time I turn the system off and on again or anytime I want to add new games via synchronization?

  14. Good work bro,! I am follower who's got a question; I did use Hackhi on my mini genesis and it worked well with most games, without installing RetroArch. Few games now, I haven't been able to play and it shows a message "developed for use only with pal and french secam mega drive systems." Do you have an idea or a fix? thanks in advance.

  15. I tried this today with the Hakchi2 CE 3.8.0 and got a rebooting error. Nothing I do seems to work including making sure the hakchi is allowed by my firewall. Any advice would be appreciated.

  16. @15:42 in the video if you are using hakchi how did you do that? Accessing that menu. Also, I’ve been trying to figure that out. Also how many Have you tested saving games using Hakchi on the Genesis wonder how it works?

  17. i got both NES/Sega mini. On the NES i was able not only to add games but have cheats on the games to. Adding games to the Sega mini is easy but i cant find anywhere to add cheats to games i have added. I added Desert Strike Return To The Gulf and i like to play with cheats for the game. Is there an option/a way to add cheats to games that you add to the Sega mini?
