On November 14, Black Seraph, the developer of the famous GarlicOs Custom Firmware, learned of the existence of its version 2.0 for several Anbernic consoles, and although in the photo we saw an RG35XX, this version was not available for it.

Yesterday, just a few hours before the launch of the new RG35XX+ Black Seraph through its X account (formerly Twitter), we learned that we would have GarlicOs 2.0 for the new console from day one! (and it is now that we suspect that the RG35XX seen in the photo could be a Plus…

Chex Quest Port

A few days ago, (while Discorg was crashing, I couldn’t say why…) I received a message from the developer JoJones88 announcing that he had created a new port, this time of the game Chex Quest.
Chex Quest is a game that uses the Doom engine and was free, it came on a CD-Rom inside the Chex cereal boxes from General Mills back in 1996.
It is about a Cereal that with various strange weapons returns different Flemoids to their dimension, but without killing anyone. (Remember that it is a game for children).
JoJones88 has created this port based on Prboom so we can play it.

You can download it as always from our Ports section for GarlicOs.

4) Fixed performance issues on MinUI;

NDS available for GarlicOS and MinUI

Recently, XQuader surprised us with the news that it has ported the Nintendo DS emulator (DraStic) for the GarlicOS and MinUI Custom Firmwares, and although it is still in a very early phase of development, it seems to work wonderfully.

Known issues:
1) Screen tearing;
2) Menu is hard to read;
3) HDMI-out audio is not working (audio plays through the rg35xx speaker);
4) Stylus doesn’t like “rolling” in different directions, e.g. Right => Right+Down => Right will stop it from moving in the “Right” direction.
Not implemented (yet):
1) Multiple screen modes/layouts and overlays support (as in the MM/MM+ version)

JoJones88 contacted me via Discord recently to inform me that the Port of Wolfenstein Spear of Destiny that we had on the page only allowed one episode of the game to be played, and that they had created an update in which we could play all the episodes.
So after providing me with the necessary files, we have re-uploaded and updated them so that we can enjoy them, so it is now available for download in our Ports for GarlicOS section.
