The Retro Bit Generations is a new Plug and Play console featuring around 100 classic games. The titles included run the gamut of arcade classics to modern releases–all officially licensed and legally included. One thing that fans of the Plug and Play have become upset over is not being able to load their own game collections onto it. That little feat was impossible, until now. Instructions after the jump.
The Retro Bit Generations was a popular console within the retro gaming community. A lot of us figured since they were licensing games that it would be a closed source system. I just could not see companies like Data East and Capcom working with basically an open emulation box.
We were contacted earlier today by an anonymous person claiming to have worked at Actions Company, a semiconductor and more developer. This person claims to have been behind hacks for various Actions Company and Dingoo product. I know, not a lot to go on but well, sometimes we have to run with our gut on these things. This is a “hail Mary” article of the year so here goes with the instructions to make this work. If you use these instructions and it works, please let us know in the comments below.
First, on your SD card, delete everything. Use the best possible formatting option (will be slow).
Second, copy this Key.bin file to the root directory of your SD card. Make a folder for ROMS–this is where you will put your legally obtained games and/or your public domain games. Just remember, we here at Retro Gaming Magazine do not condone theft, stealing or lying or anything of the sort.
Third, insert your SD card into your Retro Bit Generations console and turn it on. It is important that your console be off when you insert the SD card.
Fourth, on the main game selection screen press the “B” and choose the SD card option. Now you can select the game you wish to play off of your SD card.
That is it ladies and gentlemen. No fancy having to hack the console, no having to solder the battery connectors to make a “Pandora Battery”.
If you try this and it works, let us know in the comments below.
Edit – Download the Key.bin file here. The file is now hosted on Google Drive. I apologize for the trouble in acquiring the file from the other file service.
