ODROID-GO Advance Multiplayer Preview

The Multiplayer Preview brings support for two players on two devices to ODROID-GO Advance (OGA). This allows one player to host a game on an OGA while another player joins in using a second OGA. The video and audio of the host is compressed in real-time using H264 and Opus codecs before being sent over the network to the second player. Matching emulators and/or ROM sets between players are not required using this method. This is the same method used for “cloud” gaming services but Internet is not required - only a local WIFI network.

Please refer to the following Forum thread to get more information and issues.
