But I don't under stand "games enabled"
I've gotten and tried several of the games on the list (enabled ones) that don't work. Either they show blank screen, or controls don't work. (asteriods) or they come in with the display being WAY TO LARGE during the boot up.
So I don't understand the enabled games part.
