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

Yeah that's a big benefit to these. A great component switch is cheaper than a mediocre scart switch. Well that and there is so much more you can connect it to. Honestly just about anything that will take RGB like a PVM or DVDO unit, will also just take ypbpr.

I'm not just down the rabbit hole though, I've gone through the RGB Stargate.

I think you should scoop the Eternal Sonata WT and put up some options, if it reverts, then Wheels can have a chance. If it reverts again, JD can have a chance.

AS tempting as the $20 Dariusburst from Steam is, I think I will hold off for now. Just in case they release some sort of bundle with all the DLC.

I have enough games to play anyway. What is it about buying new games that's so attractive?

Buying can be addictive behavior. Which is why I'm making myself knock out some anime I own and haven't seen. I finished Venus Wars before buying GiTS and I got more on tap to finish before that arrives. I'm hoping to finish at least a couple more discs tomorrow. I started Dominion Tank Police and it seems pretty legit.

They lifted quite a few assets from the Amiga original. Sound effects are taken almost verbatim, Music and stage design seems to be completely different and it's also much faster-paced than the Amiga game. For $13, I'm pretty satisfied! It's very playable.

Emulation, every time lol. Shadowplay. No sense in investing $600 in getting a "clean" rip from the console when you can accomplish near-similar results for nothing. smile

Plus it's one of those situations where I can emulate pretty much 100% guilt-free, since, you know

That's cheating lol!

I was just thinking about if I'd ever get rid of the DVDO processor I have. Getting it back isn't a big deal but the ABT card is annoying to find. If I find that I'm fine with the HDRetro component cables, it's something I might think about.

I would guess somewhere firmly in the middle of composite into the tv and scart to bnc into the dvdo. I don't have the desire to spend more money to find out for myself though. But yeah, definitely see if it's good enough, you only use the 30 for gaming right? Could be hard to justify keeping something that's $300-ish (due to the card) around if you are content with retrovision. Of course it also depends on if you are using it for systems you can't retrovision with as well. Apparently the Duo has a really great composite comb filter.

Anyway, yeah I'd never sell mine, but I also use it for more than gaming, and use my 50pro every day.
