🚗💨 I thought I would share with you all my experience with the AT Games Portable SEGA MegaDrive Ultimate that I recently purchased from FunStock
Having owned 2 Japanese SEGA MegaDrive’s and a Handheld SEGA Nomad I have had a pretty good exposure to the MegaDrive and the games released over its years of popularity, so revisiting them on the new portable was great for my retro gaming nostalgia.
The machine comes preloaded with 20 of the usual SEGA MegaDrive compilation games like Golden Axe,Sonic and Streets of Rage, but the best part is adding your own games.
Steps to add games to the SD Card and Screenshots etc.
1. Buy a SD Card. (The card must be SD only and not SDHC.
2. Format the card with your PC using the FAT Format.
3. Put the SD Card into the portable and select SD from the menu. This will create a folder called ‘Game’ to the card.
4. Remove the card and insert it into your PC.
5. Locate the ‘Game’ folder and add your Roms in there ( Rom format must be [.Bin]
6. Put the SD Card into the machine, select SD and you will see your games list.
If you want to add your own screenshot to your gaming list you can download the program and the .MDB file from here >>>> elektropage
7. Put the .MDB file into your Roms folder.
8. Start the downloaded screenshot program as seen below.⬇
9. Open the .MDB file from your games folder.
10. Create your own game screenshot for your games list. The game names list must match your Rom names.
11. Add a game name then select the picture to accompany the game. ( pics must be no more than 120mm x 112mm in size and contain less than 63 colours.
And that’s how to load games and have screenshots for your portable MegaDrive 😃
The Machine runs an emulator called Firecore which has a very good compatibility with most of the MegaDrive games released.
The weakest element of this machine is the sound quality. I won’t go on about it here, it’s well documented online and on YouTube.
Below are some of the Yu Suzuki SEGA games that I dropped on the machine
SUPER HANG ON
SPACE HARRIER II
If your a MegaDrive fan but no longer own the machine this is a great way to re-live the good times of the MegaDrive (anywhere) ..and now its more portable than ever.
