new Thread Description
This thread was originally created to encourage traders here at GTZ to do more trading, especially retro related stuff. It has turned into a lot more and I am so grateful to everyone who contributed to this thread and have kept it going for nearly 6 months now. I hope this thread will continue to thrive and everyone who reads/participates in this thread will gain some value or knowledge out of it.

We will still have Trade lists up here, though it's been a while since anyone updated. I encourage everyone to look over their lists and post updates.
There is also a section for gorgeous pictures of game rooms that active participants of this thread have shared. Feel free to share some pics of your collection or game room.
I will be adding another section for information regarding video quality of retro gaming systems on modern displays and how to improve them.
There is rather some extensive discussion regarding how to improve the display quality of retro gaming systems and if you are new to this like I am, you will find it very informative.

Old Topic Description


GTZ has become a marketplace where the most commonly traded commodity is PayPal. I want to start an effort to get some trades going and to discuss some good games perhaps you never heard of or interested in but want to discover/know more of. For example, I just got intto shmups after years of ignoring the genre and I love to discover new(to me) and rediscover old ones(Sonic Wings comes to mind).

No pressure here. Feel free to discuss anything retro. Perhaps throw out some WTTF targets and what you have to offer. I am sick of browsing people's year old Available lists.

Some examples:

- WTTF/WTB/LF
- What you think is awesome game/series/whatever
- Potential games you have up for trade
- Pics of what you have/what you would love to get/what you think is the bestest awesomest game ever
- Show off your latest finds/adds to your collection

Also the LD is still the definitive release of the original movie? How is this the case in 2017? gosh darn it.

Edit: For anyone wondering the video quality on the blu is great but the subtitles suck and the English audio is missing crap, lol.

Edit 2: Maybe one of the later blu releases is redone, time to check.

I don't think any LD is the definitive anything unless horrible quality video is definitive.

Yeah I mean, we are comparing shades of evil here. The DVD is Manga Entertainment rubbish, so just throw that out. All US releases of the bluray seem to have the same crapty subtitle track as well as audio that is missing sound effects.

I'm probably going to get the Japanese Premium Box LD, because I have a real problem. I'll wait for some sort of eBay promo.

Fortunately, the blu releases of SSS and Innocence appear to be fine.

Looks like I want the DVDs of SAC and SAC2.

Oh hey, Anchor Bay is Manga Entertainment is Lionsgate. This explains fudging everything.

The SAC bluray release was such utter crap, I actually returned it. I was so disappointed. Audio track leaking, dubtitles, SUPER LAZY DUBTITLES ("Singing in Japanese" for the OP lyrics, except you know, they were singing in Russian), I have never gotten a Bluray release and just been DISAPPOINTED before this. I was just shaking my head.

Oh gawd. People still do this crap?! I did this back in 1998 but stopped because modding a PS1 back then cost $30 in Chinatown.
Still have my trusty modded PSOne from back when.

Having to swap discs that frequently and fast is asking for trouble honestly. And yeah, it's so cheap to modchip a PS1. I've been hoarding PS1s to practice mod work.

Back in the day, that was one of the deciding factors that pushed me firmly into the Sega camp. With the Sega Saturn, I could play Japanese imports without any technical know-how or internal modification. All I needed was a good ol' Import Converter -- Pro Action Replay Plus 4-in-1 (Saturn) and I was instantly transported to import heaven. smile

At some point I'll probably pick up a modded PSOne, but at the moment the only game I have to play on it is Intelligent Qube.

If this is something you're only going to do once or twice to try a game, or just for one game, disc swapping is probably fine, you can buy a new PSOne for less than the cost of some of these import kits anyways even if you bust it and the hardware's honestly less resilient now than it was back then. Old hardware was tank-like. For a once in a while thing, it's fine. If you're going to be doing it every day or with a bunch of titles over time, yeah, invest in something nicer. raspberry

Yeah Sega is pretty import friendly, even if it was unintentional.

Sega Genesis = game genie cart
Sega Saturn = action replay/any number of various carts
Sega Dreamcast = gameshark

I had a Modded PSX and Modded PSOne. It was easy choice given there are places in Chinatown that sold CDRs of imports and new releases for $15.

I bought a Sega Saturn bundle at a garage sale...probably 1999-2000. When it was dirt cheap because Dreamcast was out.

Is there currently any plug 'n' play option when it comes to modding an original PlayStation for imports?
