Wrote a new blog about how much I'm loving Delta Chat after learning about it here on Fedi. Using email for chats just..
Works. Encryption is easy, messages are fast, and it is cross platform. Now for the hard part, convincing other people I know to use it. http://obscurednarration.com/general/2022-06-29-delta-chat-review/
Went back to working on the Stream Daddy retro gaming Android OTT box. RetroArch is installed, configured, and all games imported. But, my preferred frontend can't be installed due to legacy Android.
The box runs Android 5 and Termux only supports back to Android 7. This means I can't run the Pegasus install script.
So now I'm looking at different frontends. The goal is just a simple navigation frontend for a TV setup for NES & Genesis games. Gonna start with looking at tweaks to RetroArch itself.
It looks like this board and build has several sellers. Basically in 2015 there was a manufacturer that you could work with if yiu wanted to sell an Android TV box with your own custom branding.
I played around with this box for too long last night. I did find a some possible CoreELEC builds. But, I'm seriously considering leaving it disconnected from the internet and building it as a retro console. I would just need to pick up a bluetooth controller or two.
Took a peek inside. Its a Amlogic S905, 2GB RAM, with 16GB onboard storage. I have some projects in mind, just need to find a more recent ROM.
Oh snap, even has a clock on the front. How retro VCR-ish
