Just a shot in the dark, will there be an Open2X DR8 for F100 and F200 with the new features you mentioned, o2xiv updates (Open2X Image Viewer) and those bugs fixed in the pipe line due for release? Only wondering.
I see where your coming from, it does seem that emulation is slowly gonna be a thing of the past. At least I can safely say that I have played some real classical games that has 100% enjoyment and playability.
First of all I bow my head in shame as I have not yet seen Avatar. It looks awesome but the missus won't appreciate this movie as she hates all Sci-fi's. I'm not all that fussed with 3D movies and the silly glasses you have to pay extra for. Must be a sign of getting old and miserable.
My main reason in getting a GP2X initially was for the retro gaming value. Then I found this community that helped each other and developed open source emulators, etc made the final push in purchasing it.
