Lakka: Emulators on WeTek Play (based on OE)

Senior MemberPosts: 238 in Linux

If you want to turn your WeTek Play in a "GameConsole" then try Lakka
Built on top of the famous RetroArch emulator, Lakka is able to emulate a large range of hardware and has some usefull features such as Braid-like rewinding, joypad hotplug and video streaming.
Here is a video, showing Lakka in BananaPi:

I had Lakka running on my RPi for some time now and I asked the Devs, if they could release a experimental Image for the WeTek Play, because it is based on OE. Some hours later I got a Mail with the Link to the experimental Image.

It runs with some small glitches:
- after booting there is the default white Background showing "WeTek Play"
and a small box showing the Lakka icon with a black background
- when scrolling (pressing up/down) in the Lakka-GUI there is the default
background (see above) showing for a few milliseconds
according to the Lakka-Dev, the bootloader (bootsplash) has to be cleared and they can't support the WeTek Play officially, because they don't own the devices *hint* ;)

Here you can try it out:

DL the img.gz and write it to your mSD-Card like OE.
If you have already OE running, you can rename the kernel.img and SYSTEM of OE and put the Lakka kernel.img and SYSTEM on the card.

Make sure you put your ROMS in /storage/roms

Tried only 2048 and SNES so far ;)
