I'd really like to see Sega CD and TG-16 support. :)

if anyone has actually rooted their retron 5 would you be willing to see if you could get one(or all) of these quake engines to run on your retron 5? for the quake engine to work you have to have the game files(pm me).

id really appreciate it. so far quake has ran on dos,modern windows, linux, and i think mac, psp, psvita, a calculator o.O quake on calc , and an oscilloscope O.O O.O. and of course android phones.

it would be nice to see if the retron could handle quake as well =D.
