Anyone talk about the TGmini here?
« on: November 27, 2022, 02:57:14 PM »
Hello I am looking for hacking info that I can understand to add games to my tg16 mini. I searched but didnít find anything about it. Itís been a while since I posted but wanted to say hello. I sold all my original stuff since I was going hard on cars. But past year Iíve accumulated a TG16 mini, neo geo mini, nes, snes, n64 , GameCube, sega Genesis, Saturn, Sega cd, Dreamcast, 2600, ps1 &2 . Been busy finding them and fixing them. Used to be 420goat. Thanks !

I have a mini but don't use it a whole lot.  I know nothing about modding one.

Rumor is that b/c the TG/PCE mini does not have a physical reset button, the hack/mod to basically turn it into a raspberry pi (Hakchi?) is more of a challenge and the creator felt it's not worth the risk of damage to console for the "casual" user to install. Something about soldiering a reset switch to the motherboard. I could be totally wrong, but when I was searching last year, that was my take away.

I did want to have an all-in-one little obey mini to take on the road w/ me for a while but realized the mod and setup would be prolly more fun than actually using it. My freebee old Dell laptop running Batocera fulfils my EMU needs.

On a side note, can't a hacked Genesis/MD mini play TG/PCE games? I know it's sacrilege to even say...

Hmm thatís too bad. I saw that Hikachi video and itís too technical for my goldfish brain. With the crazy values on these I wonder if I can find a trade for an original system so I can run a flash cart?
