Let’s start with a story… there’s always a story.
Late Friday night, after a number of hours of Sniper Elite 4 🙂 with some friends, had a hankerin (yes that’s probably a real word somewhere) to play some oldskool racing.
In fact… my friends and I probably spent enough on Daytona USA and Sega Super GT to buy our own machines.
Checking the old ‘interwebs’ I see the available emulators, but what a PITA to run them.. at least relatively by “I just want it to be super easy and no mucking about”
Then I had an epiphany.. why not MyRetrozz these?
Here is a WIP.. a couple days into the project.
Yes, I will MyRetrozz it.. meaning I’ll make it as easy as possible.. 100% portable, no mucking about with config files etc. All ‘screen resolution’ bits will be automated, and some method to make it easy to configure mouse/lightgun for those particular games.
Here is a WIP.. at least of the menu. Yes, ALL games do work. Tested @ 1080p and 4k thus far.

What was to be a quick 2 week project has taken considerably longer.. my <6 month old 10tb drive decided to give up working.. and it happened to be my DEV drive!
Luckily I had backup.. unfortunately last backup was from January 25th.. and I was working on THIS project..
In any event.. a setback.. but I’ll work this week to rebuild the features I had already started like automatic screen resolution, option for local multiplayer (multiple instances on a local network) and whatever cool stuff I can think of.
