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

DD or someone else said cheap ones have shown up on Amazon said it's purely a phishing listing to get your address. Probably either to gather emails/addresses to sell to companies to create "lists" or perhaps they even try to scam you for your credit card or bank info.

I don't know because it's a waste of my time. But you can be 100% certain it's one of those things I mentioned.

Made an offer of $50 but seller declined. Meh.

For those interested, I guess try something above $50. I'm not taking a risk more than $50 + shipping.

So I guess I'm just Shirow binging at this point (I know he wasn't actually involved in the movie I'm going to mention). After watching GiTS yesterday I was like ah eff it and bought Appleseed and Appleseed Deus Ex Machina on bd. I remember the first movie kind of being a mess, but it was only $10 brand new. DEM was a lot better from what I remember. I'll see how I feel about them after rewatching them. Anyone here seen Tartaros & Ouranos?

@Lunar Kind of silly for him to have offers on but not take 17% off.

@Gypsy- slightly off topic here but could I interest you in 2 of the Shirow Masamune Intron Depot art books (volumes 2 and 3)?

I like them except for 2 reasons: 1) they're big and awkward so they don't fit on my bookshelf and 2) some of the art is just a tad too risque for my liking. Not as bad as Intron 1 and its inclusion of the content cut from the 1st and 3rd English printings of Ghost in the Shell, but still...

I'm really only wanting to have Intron 5 in my collection for the Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon art.

Extremely unlikely but if anyone here or lurkers has a XRGB-2 (maybe 3 but probably not) and were thinking about upgrading, I'm in the market for one. I suppose any old line doubler with VGA out would do, or a XSelect-D4 but that seems even more unlikely.

@Lunar Looks pretty good for N64. I'm not really surprised the cable is comparable.

Fite me. That game looks way worse than Necro for instance. I just want it to flow well.

Are we still doing limericks about this

Not sure OSSC will help. I hope it does..

Supported output resolutions

240p/288p -> 480p/576p or 720p line triple (compatible displays only)
240p/288p -> 1280960, 12801152, 1080p, 16001200 line quadruple/quintuple (compatible displays only)
25Khz medium-res modes -> 480p
480i/576i -> 480p/576p or pass-through
480p -> pass-through or 960p line-double (compatible displays only)
all other 31khz resolutions passed through

The future.. OMG, Line Sextuple?!

Will there be a line sextuple mode on the OSSC? Unfortunately not, we're now at the limits of the current hardware. To go into 4K resolutions would unfortunately require more powerful hardware. Will a more powerful OSSC arrive one day?, it's certainly possible. For now, we can expect the rate of new firmware updates to slow down a little as the device is now close to feature complete, at least as far as Marqs imagined it.

""We are experimenting with Crash," he says. "We know there's a vocal fanbase that wanted that to come back. But you never know if that is emblematic of a larger audience or just this niche, nostalgia-based community. So far, we are seeing some real passion for it, so that could lead to other things. "

So the Crash remaster is doing extremely well, which will probably lead to more things. I'd love a Spyro trilogy set.

OSSC has a thread with 4k tv compatibility (of course the TV scales 1080p images). The problem is the TV couldn't handle what the DVDO was giving it. So perhaps I will have luck with the OSSC. If I don't I'll just kill myself.

Using the default brightness is too dim. The new cables( I don't remember seeing the switch on the side of the earlier HDRetroV cables) has a switch to turn the brightness up(only 1 option though) but makes a HUGE difference!

I'm in the market for a HDMI switch(I need one with multiple inputs and one that can take 1 input and display 2 outputs) and a YPbPr switch if anyone has recommendations. Or else I'd have to rely on Amazon reviews.
