Quick updates :)

Just released v0.11.1 to fix a regression from v11 where pull-up on RTC shared pins didn't work anymore. This might give you a lot of problems if you have unused pins left float on your ESP32 module.

Also, v0.12 [edit now out!] will come soon with SNES mouse and Famicom Hori trackball support.

Then finally v1.0 will come probably in early April with N64 memory card support!!

I'm talking about this for months but the HW Beta is really happening soon! I fully expect to be ready shipping around ~20 DevKit boards and cables in early May 2021. I got plenty available for the beta so subscribe here:

If you rather build your own around an ESP-DevkitC WROOM module check these instructions.

I also started to experiment with some concept for BlueRetro v2 (slim version) that I fully intend to launch a crowd funding camping for, probably this fall:
