-Graphic Filters: HQ2X, LQ2X, TV Scanline and much more (though some need fixing)
-Only SDL Video is used the rest of the IO Handling is done natively
-Menu Preview System and Audio player are disabled. (SDHC is very slow)
-File Caching supported for Quick Realtime data loading
-USB Mode Not supported, Must be run from SDHC Card
-For now must use hardcoded path (sd:/apps/OpenBOR)
-Not tested hence 99% sure widescreen mode does not work

-Widescreen (480x272) mods supported.
-Widescreen (16:9) displays supported.
-No aspect ratio distortion with any mod regardless of display. Horizontal/vertical black bars are used when needed.
-Can now be run from a USB flash drive or FAT32-formatted USB hard drive.
