I love my backbone one.
One thing that I do not love is that when I add Sonic 1 and Sonic CD, there is no proper image for them. Just a generic gray box.
Sonic 2 has a nice normal image.
Is it possible to add my own image and override gray boxes?
To uninstall the Backbone
To install the Backbone
I've seen so many Youtubers and Ads where they install the Backbone in a way that puts strain on the lightning adapter.
Will I derive long term value from this, if i invest in apple arcade or some basic games? Woll iphone xr perform well in coming years? I already see dips in battery health after 6 months and similar lags due to buggy ios versions
Should I spend 100 dollars on this?
I just got a Backbone One controller today and was really excited to get going with GFN on my iPhone, but it’s not linking up with the iOS app/website thing. I have it running with Stadia on my phone, so I know it’s not the controller or my phone. I couldn’t find any kind of controller settings or manual connection features in GFN, and I haven’t found any useful resources online. I’m running iOS 14.6 on an iPhone 11. Has anyone else had this problem?
NGL, I’m really frustrated about this. The warning in GFN for iOS about needing a controller for games literally takes you to an Nvidia site with a “Buy Now” link for the Backbone One…
EDIT: I spoke with Nvidia tech support and the best suggestion they had was that I find a different controller to test
Obviously a lot of users here are already happy Backbone One users so this post is mostly intended for those who may be considering getting this controller. It's less a review and more a breakdown on how I've been using it for the past two weeks.
First off, I have to give credit to the build of this device. I had read and seen all the reviews and so was expecting a high build quality, but honestly it still exceeded my expectations. I'm very picky about controllers and have WAY too many for all my different systems. This controller feels as good as any first party controller for other systems. I've seen complaints about the triggers feeling mushy, but on the contrary, I actually really love how they feel. My one gripe is that the face buttons feel slightly too far apart. This becomes mainly a problem for games where you need to push multiple buttons at once (say in a fighting game for example). It's not a dealbreaker but definitely something to improve.
The software has been talked about a lot and in general is fantastic. However, it unfortunately doesn't currently let you delete games you've added, even after they are no longer on your system. There's also no way to group games or categorise them in any way so I hope these additions are brought to it soon.
Honestly, I didn't buy the Backbone One for iOS gaming at all. It's never been something I've cared about so I was really only trying it out to see what it was like. I have to say though, with this controller I will probably be giving mobile gaming a second look. While the console quality releases (GRiD, Dead Cells, Hyper Light Drifter among others) are few and far between, Apple Arcade suddenly becomes a viable service to me with enough interesting experiences that use the controller that I'm now excited to see what else I've been missing. Also, even though I'm far from a fan of the series and even further of a fan of F2P service games, I've sunk a more hours into CoD Mobile with this than I'm comfortable admitting. It just feels so good.
The real reason I bought the Backbone One and it came with some surprises - some good and some bad. First off, my primary goal was to stream my PC games to my phone to play like a Switch when my wife wanted to use the TV. I've done this in the past with my iPad and controller and the experience was very good. I have Moonlight, Steam Link and Rainway all set up and tried each of them with the Backbone. In general
I can do single string no problem but two strings is tough and muddy. In live vids and covers it looks like more elbow is used

Thinking of getting one for my iPhone 11 Pro Max and preferably don't want to ditch the case.
It's so interesting how connected we are, yet how different we behave. May God grant guidance to the good among both of us, and destroy those who are full of arrogance and hatred.
I wonder how the Doctor and his Patient would think of the situation today.
Based on your feeling while playing shorts/longs sessions of gaming
I am usual to play with the iphone 12 Max with a Ps4 pad with a support (following an image).
Will the Backbon be a Huge stepforward?
Got a Backbone One about 2 weeks ago and absolutely love it. Looking to add some friends so my app isn’t a ghost town lol. I play a lot of COD Mobile and a bunch of other games.
