Yes it auto saves. You can also save at any point to your preference.

It will load the existing saves from the cart when you first load it.

Re: RetroN 5 Thoughts

Although I have one, I still have my preorder with RetroGameBase. They sent me an update, and it seemed to indiate that they were having problems certifying it for EU realese. That's the latest we have - but there's no confirmation as to whether this means September is an issue or not. We don't wan...

Re: RetroN 5 Thoughts

Tried them all this morning and the "corner" trick sorts all problems. I would not consider this a 'fault' anymore and more of a design flaw (easily overcome by using the correct, simple, technique).

Re: RetroN 5 Thoughts

The Famicom ones on mine are far too tight and I am a little nervous about the slot. However the NES and SNES ones are completely fine, especially if you just pop the cart out on one corner first. slides out with 0 effort. Have you tried the example shown in the video? - did it help? Famicom wasn't...

Re: RetroN 5 Thoughts

We will add a short guide on how to remove the cartridges easily - if you use the correct technique it looks like it works a treat. I will test this theory tonight when I get back. I am worried that Hyperkin yet again are not addressing the issue that the pins are just too damm tight. Did you watch...

Re: RetroN 5 Thoughts

Cheers for the info. I'm certainly interested in this console. I would need some kind of fix to this cartridge hole size issue however as this simply doesnt instill any faith in the unit. Its certainly a shame because the concept is fantastic. I brought in 2 for myself (personally) from the USA and...

Re: RetroN 5 Thoughts

If the offer's open to anybody I might be interested in either the Retro Duo or the RDP. What's the emulation like on them, and are they multi-region? The retro Duo has trouble with some games, I got one and it got glitchy with Mario Kart There's a compatibility list here: http://en.wikipedia.org/w...
