Additional Notes

When the ALU reads the add-on files, it extracts the boxarts and caches them locally in order to display them on the UI. This uses system storage, so when the size of the total boxarts gets too big, the ALU runs out of system storage. We’ve made the following changes to address this since v3.0.18.

  • Added popup message when system storage runs low (< 30M), the ALU also stops loading additional UCE files when this happens (user will see a partial list of add-ons).
  • Removing add-on USB will clear the cached boxarts.
  • In the unlikely case when the system storage runs low, power cycle the unit to reclaim space.

2. Once the server is ready, there will be a popup notification on the ALU menu and user can choose to either enter the BYOG server, or dismiss the notification.

3. The server will go offline after 15mins of inactivity, so if user misses the notification from step 2, this process will restart at step 1.
