Project Lunar & Hackchi (For Genesis Mini)

Postby mike boss » Mon Dec 30, 2019 5:06 pm

Anyone take a stab @ Project Lunar ?
I picked up the Genesis Mini pretty much @ launch, now it's selling for $65 ($35 savings!).
I tried out project lunar yesterday.

A few thoughts :

The install was easy enuff......
The scraper however took LONG, REALLY LONG (nowhere near as quick and easy as Hackchi)
I installed my games, leaving about 5mb of space.........I powered on and got ERROR 004.............
After that it was black screen for me.
I removed games, leaving about 50MB of free space.
However this did not resolve my issue, I had to uninstall and go back to the stock settings.
The console seems fine now.

I'll give it another try, however I'd really like to attempt using a USB drive with the complete US GAME set.
No tutorial exists yet for that, so I may just wait as this is brand new.

So I uninstalled Project Lunar and decided to go with Hackchi.
I installed the full US library for Sega Genesis, Master System and Turbo GRFX 16.
It took quite some time to get all the artwork in order.
I just made sure I got most of the artwork from EMU Movies to speed up (as best I could the process).
I did not set up spine art.

I don't know if it is my flash drive, a 32GB Phillips USB 3.0, but I often get ERROR E4: Shutdown .
The system will just reboot and tends to be fine.
My BIGGEST issue is the games keep exiting to the main menu.
I set up Retroarch to exit by holding START for 2 seconds, but if I'm in game play and hit DOWN + C it dumps out.
Sometimes just pressing pause the game will dump out.
This has been the biggest pain.
