i try to buy all handheld console that i dont have. My gp2x F-100 is broken since some months and i want to buy the F-200 to replace it


1. Is the d-pad really better than F-100

2. Is the nes emulator have a option for fullscreen stretching ( i cant remember that, i play too often with my gp32nlu and gp32 has a nes full stretching option)

3. Which firmware is better , i heard that f-200 have problem with some emulators when using some firmware version.

4. IS there a way to make the difference of the 2 gp2x F-200 LCD SCREEN version. i heard that a newer edition come with a brighter lcd. it seem true when i look on youtube.

5. Is the gamegear emulator have Now a option for fullscreen stretching. it was something i was disappointed some months ago.

6. i had a gp32 blu some years ago. I want to buy another one to complete my collection. I want to know if the gp32 lcd screen was bright like the gp2x lcd screen. if not, how much brighter is the gp2x lcd screen VS the gp32 . IF YOU CAN TEST I WILL APPRECIATE IT. maybe i will not buy a blu if the backlight is not really good compared to gp2x. i already have a gp32 nlu and flu.

Thanks for answer.

No, it's only a different kind of crap IMO :(

FW 4.0 is the worst thing on Earth ! Use Open2X DR 7 instead :)

Bye, Magic Sam

Definitely. It could be better though, especially if you like fighting games.

Open2X! I haven't encountered any compatibility issues and it is a real improvement of the OF.

1. i don't have any problem with it

2. yes, both software and hardware scaling

3. Open2X. You lose only ogm playing and using the gp2x as SD card reader

4. look at the back of the gp2x. if it says F200 ( B ) then it's the newer, if not, then it's the same lcd as the f100 but with a added touchscreen film. (as far as i know. Don't know if it's brighter or not)

5. seems it does :D http://www.gp32wip.com/proyectos.php?cat=1 (look at the menu screenshot)

6. don't have a gp32 but i can see the image, outside in a cloudy day, as clearly, as indoors, but not that clearly with a bright sun. (F200 ( B )

But i have another question. Can i install open2x firmware on any F-200. even the F-200 with firmware 4.0 or 4.1 on it ?

You can install the Open2X firmware on any GP2X in existence. The F100 version works for all F100 models and same for the F200 version.

And I actually like the DPAD but not for fighting games. For shooters it is excellent actually. You can get extremely precise control.
