Installation of the Time Machine console
- Plug the HDMI cable connector into the HDMI output at the back of the console.
- Plug the HDMI cable connector into the HDMI input port of the television.
- Plug the controller’s dongle into one of the USB ports on the console to ensure it is recognized.
Plug the power cable into an electrical outlet and press the POWER (ON-OFF) button located on the power cable to turn on your Time Machine console.
Turn on your television connected to your Time Machine console.
Select the HDMI input that corresponds to the connected Time Machine console.
Once you have completed all the installation steps and are ready to use the Time Machine console, you should select the appropriate input on your television.
IMPORTANT: Each time the console starts up, it undergoes a pre-loading of 40 to 60 seconds during which it provides no signal or display. Once the pre-loading is complete, the time will be displayed on the front screen of the console.
In the console’s main menu, you can navigate between different systems using the Time Machine controllers.
Game Launch: Unlike the main menu, when you launch a game, in most cases, only controller No. 1 will be able to control the game until the menu selection.
The console automatically assigns which controller will be controller No. 1 randomly when starting a game.
For example, in Mario Kart 64: if you want to play with 2 or 4 players, the player with controller No. 1 will have to navigate to the multiplayer mode selection. Once you reach the character selection screen, the other players will have the opportunity to choose their character.
IMPORTANT: When the dongles are connected, the controllers are still recognized even if they are turned off. It is therefore recommended to have only one dongle connected when playing with one player.
Turning off the controller: To turn off the controller, press SELECT + LS (click the left joystick). In case of inactivity, the controller will automatically turn off after 5 minutes.
Several shortcuts are available in the games:
■ Exiting Games: For all systems except the PSP and DS, quickly press the START and SELECT buttons twice in a row at the same time.
■ Quitting a PSP Game: Press the “LT” trigger and then select the “Return to menu” option and then “Quit.”
■ Exiting a Nintendo DS Game: Simply press the “LT” trigger on your controller.
■ Changing Discs: In some games like Final Fantasy VII, you may be asked to change discs during gameplay. To do this, follow these steps:
Press SELECT + RS (click the right joystick) to eject the disc.
Press SELECT + RIGHT or LEFT ARROW to change the disc; the selected disc number will be displayed in the lower left corner of the screen.
Press SELECT + RS again to insert the selected disc.
■ Exiting an OpenBOR Game: Simply return to the main menu of the game and select “QUIT” or “EXIT GAME.
Searching for Games: The search option will make your life easier when looking for your favorite games with its many search options and filters. To access the search menu after selecting the console of your choice, press the “SELECT” button on your controller. In addition to being able to search for your games by name, dozens of search options are available, allowing you to sort games by genre, publisher, rating, and more.
N.B: If you want to search for a game across all the systems included in the console, activate the search option in the “All Games” section of your console. Don’t forget to reset the filter once your search is complete to retrieve the list of all games; otherwise, the filter will remain in memory. To do this, simply go back to the “SELECT” menu and select “Reset Filters (RAZ des filtres).
Instant backup and loading
- The “Quick Save” and “Quick Load” options allow you to save and resume your game exactly where you left off. This is very convenient for certain games that do not allow saving at any time. • To SAVE your progress, press SELECT + DOWN ARROW. • To LOAD your progress, press SELECT + UP ARROW. For the PSP, the procedure is as follows: Press the LT trigger on your controller to access the in-game menu, then select the “Save State” tab. You can then perform the same action by pressing “Load State” to resume your game from where you left off.
For the PSP, the handling is almost the same, you just have to press the “LT” trigger on your controller to access the game menu and then select the “Save Status” tab. Then, you just need to do the same thing, this time pressing “Load Status” to resume your game where you left off.
Add/delete a game from your favorites
The “favourites” section allows you to easily find your favourite games. To add or remove games from your favourites, simply press the “Y” button on your controller. A selection of the best games for each console has already been made, but you can of course modify it as you wish by adding or removing games.
- Nintendo DS emulation is quite unique as it consists of 2 screens, one of which is touchscreen. Most of the time, you play with a stylus, but in this case, it is replaced by joysticks. Simply move the joysticks to make your stylus appear, and click on the screen to simulate a touch.
- For arcade consoles like MAME, ATOMISWAVE, CAPCOM, FINAL BURN NEO, and NAOMI, you need credits to play. To add credits, it’s as simple as pressing the SELECT button on your controller.
