How to use True Blue Mini
Perform the One-Time-Install process on each console you want to use True Blue with.
Plug True Blue Mini USB device into the LEFT USB port on the front of the console
Plug the Hub into the right USB port on the front of the console.
Plug the Control Pads into the Hub.
Special buttons for use on the game select menu:
- Press C to return to root game menu.
- Hold Left or Up and press C to go to the previous game menu page.
- Hold Right or Down and press C to go to the next game menu page.
- Press B to change the theme between Genesis and Mega Drive.
HOW TO CHANGE BETWEEN BOOTING IN TRUE BLUE MODE OR ORIGINAL MODE:
The One-Time Install process adds the ability to boot in one of two boot modes, these are:
- The True Blue Hacked mode.
- The Original Unhacked mode.
After install the default mode will be True Blue Hacked mode. The console will continue to boot in this mode until the mode is changed by the user.
When booting in this mode the True Blue device must be plugged into the front left USB port.
To toggle between the two boot modes do the following steps:
- The initial One-Time Install needs to have been done.
- The Console must be powered off, with the red light off.
The USB cable can be unplugged to force it to power off.
- Hold the RESET button on Console and turn on Power Switch.
Continue to hold RESET for 5 seconds until the light flashes quickly, then let go.
If RESET is held for too long the light will flash slowly indicating it is in install mode. If this occurs turn off the power switch, unplug the USB cable and try again.
- The console will boot into its new mode once you let go of RESET. It will continue to boot in this mode until the user changes the mode by following these steps again.
Note: Due to emulation some games may not play correctly.
## Q) My True Blue Mini is not working correctly, what should I do?
A) Plug in all USB connections before turning on console.
Be sure the True Blue device is plugged directly into the left front USB port.
The Hub should be plugged directly into the right front USB port.
The controllers should be plugged into the Hub.
The power supply must provide at least 1Amp.
A computer or TV USB port will often only provide 500mA (0.5Amps).
## Q) How do I boot the console in normal mode?
A) Once the one-time-install has been done, the boot mode can be changed without requiring a computer. Hold the RESET button for 5 seconds while powering on the Console. Let go of RESET once you see red light on the Console flashing quickly. The Console will then save this new boot mode and boot.
If RESET is held for 10 seconds the red light starts flashing slowly to show it has entered install/uninstall mode. Unplug the USB power cable and try again, letting go of RESET while the red light is flashing quickly.
Repeat the process to change back to hacked mode.
## Q) My True Blue Mini is loading really slowly, what should I do?
A) Be sure the True Blue device is plugged directly into the left front USB port. If it is plugged in via the Hub it will cause it to load a lot slower.
