flycast (Dreamcast Emulator) Just Got Better For Microsoft Users!

When it comes to classic systems,  nothing is more attractive to me than the SEGA Dreamcast for an assortment of reasons. My Dreamcast is still hooked up and used regularly but I also enjoy emulating DC as well.  According to libetro, Flycast just added Direct3D 11 renderer, which could be very useful for Microsoft users.  I haven't checked it out yet,  but intend to over the next few days. I'm also anxiously awaiting the arrival of my Retroid Pocket 2 Plus to see how much Dreamcast Emulation has improved from the original RP2.  https://twitter.com/libretro/status/1474452556793499653 fl ycast Info on GitHub https://github.com/flyinghead/flycast

Upcoming: Upgrade Your Retroid Pocket 2 to A RP2+

[Update 10/30: Pre-Order Available Now at GoRetroid.com   (Ships by December] https://www.retrokezins.com/2021/10/retroid-pocket-25-pcb-upgrade-and-rp2.html Retroid Pocket 2+ PCB Upgrade DIY FTW Rumors about the Retroid Pocket 2 Plus and the Retroid Pocket 3 have been around since last year. The RP2+ was originally believed to be scrapped due to Overheating Issues but that has all been ironed out and we expect a release in the near future.  RP2+ PCB Upgrade - Screen Capture From Taki II on YouTube https://youtu.be/LEYVqa9F0oo I was a big fan of the Retroid Pocket 2 due to the price. The downside was optimizing it was no easy task. Instead of releasing a new version of the RP2 what the are doing with the RP2+ is releasing a new PCB that you can install yourself which will drastically improve performance. This kind of upgrade is unheard of in the realm of SBC handhelds. There will also be an option to upgrade to a touch screen as well.  https://www.retrokezins.com
