@georgiaboi372 yes its just download unzip and copy/paste

Clone Gdemu is on ebay for about $50
Terraonion Mode is $150+
Official Gdemu for $150+
No shop to buy it from, you need to join the mailing list to order one and wait
Or you can get one today for a third of the price on ebay :)

Yeah I use a clone, I see no value added for the extra cost of the official and the troubles to order one.

You can tell the type of console from the bottom, 90% of consoles have that 1 inside the circle.

I'm still running on discs atm, but plan to find a workaround eventually. Is there a reason people would go with the GDEMU over the MODE?


Gdemu clone is $60 would be why.. vs $200 something
