I contacted Funstock and they have sent a controller out in the post. Probably just a picking mistake.
They do or they don't? I think doesn't answer the question! :lol:

I've sent a few facebook posts and messages via their website but heard nothing back. Gone through eBay in the end so a lost sale for them.

If you have a Gameboy cartridge can you load GB Color ROMs through that?

i think the only thing that lets it down is the inability to save on the cartridge. id love to play stuff at lunchtimes at work and continue at home, but its not possible.

You can transfer the save from the retron 5 back to the cart. I know it was a bit iffy at first but the patch has fixed it I believe.

Can't you just take the SD card back and forth? Save files are stuck on that.

My only slight niggle is that it seems to run at a higher clock speed. Playing Rainbow Islands on MD has become a whole new challenge.

Make sure you have the clock set right. you can choose to force 50hz, 60hz, or have it on auto detect.
