Install/Rip Your Cartridges onto The System
Typically a retro game system could only run a game cartridge when the cartridge is still inserted into the system. The Retro Freak allows you to rip your favourite ROMs from your cartridges onto the system memory or SD card and play them without the need for the original cartridge in future. It also allows you to insert an SD card with backups of your favourite ROMs and to play these using the in-built emulators.
* To use this function, a microSD card is required
* Installation should only be used for the games you own
HD-Upscaling Of Your Retro Games
On top of improving the visual output, the software also outputs improved audio and sound than you would normally get with a convential analog connection.
User Friendly Interface
Ability To Save Data Even If Your Cartridge Has Exhausted SRAM Battery
A brand new feature, unavailable on any other system - you can now save game data on the console even if a game cartridge has exhausted its back-up battery! Just save it as usual and your data will be saved on the system itself. In addition, the data saved on your system will not expire because of exhausted batteries; you can backup the saved data onto microSD and your computer (via microSD). Also, if a game cartridge still has old saved data, the Retro Freak can import them, or export one made on Retro Freak to a cartridge!
Save your game at any point by using the "save state" function, then instantly load from there! Retro gaming is well known for having some classic 'super difficult' titles with unforgiving levels that banish you back to the beginning of the stage after just one mistake... well now that's over! You can save upto 100 save points for every game!
Use Your Own Controllers
