    I've got the original OLED version. It is a brilliant display. Interesting to know there is a noticeable difference. In tempted to get a second Vita now to try all this out on now.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    So the servers are definitely not going to shut down eventually.

    I got mine from eBay.

    I received my RG351V yesterday and it looks absolutely gorgeous It feels also super comfortable in my hands, just awesome.

    Unfortunately I didn't have time to test it yet, still busy with my Vita. This whole week I was creating a favorite Amiga adf set, as I cannot use the WHDLoad files I use in LaunchBox, so I basically had to start from scratch. Finished today, still have renaming to do to have it proper.

    I'm also still installing ScummVM games to it, they're all copied, but as you know, you have to add them 1 by 1. But they work all like a charm, nice to have them on a handheld device, who would ever had thought that.

    Still have to test the whole RetroArch stuff, plus I put also EasyRPG and OpenBOR for testing, still some work.

    ScummVM is supported on the RG351, so will work on your new RG351V. The ArkOS firmware is the best for them though. You can also install ScummVM on the 350M too.

    I've also got it preinstalled on my Retroid Pocket 2, but haven't tried it on there yet. I do have it on my Android phone but have only given it a quick try.

    I imagine the screen on the Vita is better for adventure games though.

    Seeing ScummVM.....

    I haven't played Monkey Island for a while, and have an itch to do it now. I can't remember whether the last time was on my 360 or whether it was on iOS (was there an iOS version or have I just totally made that up?)

    Last two point and clicks I played were Thimbleweed Park and Grim Fandango remastered.

    Why would you like to play Monkey Island over and over again, just try some of the others, there are some truly great ones.

    Ok, so far I tested OpenBOR, and that works truly fine. EasyRPG gives me a path error, have to find out why.

    Don't know if I would like to use ArkOS though, for me 351Elec looks much nicer, plus there's also TheRA which looks fantastic but is still a bit unfinished. For myself ArkOS is the last option.

    Monkey Island is to me like a classic album that is good to get out from time to time and dip back into. Plus, now my eldest son can read it would be a good way to encourage him with a bit of classic gaming, mature humour and problem solving.

    Playing parts of the original MI with my dad is a fond personal memory.

    I have tried a number of the others, but the new stuff man, it's just not got that same vibe

    There was indeed an iOS version and it is no longer available.

    351Elec is very nice, and if you are just concentrating on an EmulationStation and RetroArch setup then yes, it's great. But the 351Elec team have just released the final version, saying they have finished development and won't be doing any more. So no further updates. Nit really a massive issue as once configured ans setup you are not likely to want to change it again.

    What ArkOS offers is far more scope to do much more with the handheld. There is a very active project porting PC games over to run natively. Doom and Quake run perfectly at 60fps, even with multiplayer support. And they are a lot if games bring added constantly. Really it depands good much b you want to tinker, or just setup once and go.
