I have discovered a way to modify the Atari Flashback HDMI console to an O2EM console.
I am Still experimenting with it.

CONTROLS: you choose the game from the menu with the joystick. Press the ACTION button to choose the game.
Then a SELECT game appears. Press the SELECT button on the joystick ( second small red button on the front of the joystick #1 ) and an on-screen keyboard appears.
I can move the on-screen cursor around to the key I want to press, and then press the ACTION button.
Pretty cool! Press the SELECT button on the joystick to exit out of the on-screen keyboand and begin the game.
Pressing the MENU button on the jotstick ( first small red button on the front of the joystick #1 )

The following Odyssey2 games are included:

I did some quick tests. KC MUNCHKIN plays fine. So cool to see this on my HDTV, although it is not taking up the entire amount of wide screen HDTV. I may have to play around with settings.

ATTACK OF THE TIMELORD plays fine, although I cannot seem to get the voice to work. Again, I may have to play around with the settings.

There is also a VIDEOPAC / PHILIPS screen:

The following games are included in that section:

[4 in 1 Row]
[The Blobbers]
[Catch the Ball + Noughts and Crosses]
[Chez Maxime]
[Chinese Logic]
[Computer Programmer]
[Depth Charge + Marksman]
[Electronic Billiards]
[Jumping Acrobats]
[Kinderim Verkehr]
[The Labyrinth Game + Supermind]
[Laser War]
[Loony Balloon]
[Martian Threat]
[The Mousing Cat]
[Neutron Star]
[Pairs + Space Rendezvous + Logic]
[Red Baron]
[Robot City]
[Satellite Attack]
[Secret of the Pharaohs]
[Shark Hunter]
[Stone Sling]
[Super Bee]
[Super Cobra]

I tried FROGGER and it seems to play fine.

When done, you do have to choose the SHUTDOWN option. It closes down the emulator properly.
You cannot just power the unit off!

I am interested in selling this. If you are interested, please send me a message

Hi Tim, when you say that you have discovered a way to modify the Atari Flashback console to execute O2EM, it means that you developed a modding code for the Atari Flashback console?

Does it replace the original BIOS or it can be executed on an external SD-Card?

And what do you mean with selling this development? To single users for personal use or to At-games in order to include it in future firmware updates?

And on which device typology could it be run? (Flashback 8, 8 gold, 9, 9 gold, X, X Gold, 50th Anniversary Edition, 50th Anniversary Edition Gold...).

Could you share some screenshots or screen recording in order to evaluate it?

Thank you!
Videopac+ G7400 & C7420

This is for personal use. I do not own any of the Atari 50 models yet. It is running on the Flashback 9.  It is the only console I have that sports a SD card slot.
I have a Flashback 9 for sale. I will sell this to an individual if they are interested. I did take some pictures. They are on the first post. I am still experimenting with it and trying to see if I can THE VOICE to work under O2EM. That is the emulator it appears to be using.
