Default slowly getting the ultimate emulation phone. (Note9)

This has been a project of mine for awhile, a mobile emulation station that I always have with me. The note 9 can pretty easily emulate every console up to and including the Wii, with the exception of the PS2/PS3/XBox as those emulators are either non-existant or generally bad for Android.

Using a USB-C dongle or USB-C to HDMI cord, you can hook it up to a TV, and use wired or wireless controllers with no problem, at 1080p. With 128GB base storage, and an SD Card slot...plenty of room for games.

Using a bluetooth controller like the Gamesir T1S which hold the phone makes this a hand held system:

Still configuring some parts of this, but it's been working pretty darn well.

For emulators, been playing with Retroarch, which is a horribly designed but wonderfully flexible app, which can support almost every emulator you would want. The exception being the Gamecube and Wii, for which we'll need Dolphin.

Then I used ARC Browser as a way to navigate all the games.
This video is pretty close to what I'm aiming to achive, I'm mostly there save for some filter effects:

Amazing stuff! Looks like you've put in a ton of work getting everything working.

Looks awesome indeed .

I've got an N64 Emulator up and running on my Note 8, and in conjunction with my GameSir G4s controller, the experience has been very smooth.

The part I'm really itching to try is proper multiplayer on the TV.
Two bluetooth controllers, HDMI out...just need someone to play a few rounds with.

Hmm..yeah, that would be really cool.
I've got my Note8 hooked up to the TV via HDMI -- no lag, works extremely well with the Bluetooth controller; haven't considered multiplayer though, would be interesting to see how that works out...so report back if you get it going!

So one of the best purchases I've made for this was a USB-C to Micro-USB 6 inch cable. It's about the perfect length to plug the phone into the controller while holstered by the controller. Zero input lag now, making old retro games MUCH better!
