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

For the record, i did not use any guide or watch any tutorials. Just saw that @DefaultGen posted some pro tips.

I think I'm going to do another run while everything is still fresh before moving on. Hopefully alot faster than this run(2:27:02, according to my stream video)

What do you mean, what is it telling you?

And why didn't you use their built-in label maker? If it tracks and it says it's delivered you can use that to tell the seller to go fudge himself if he fights it. Hopefully they're honest.

I never beat NG I don't think. If I did, I clearly don't remember anything lol.

I definitely have played NGII alot so I'm familiar with the platforming.

I'm not familiar with the Mutant Virus, I'll broadcast my virgin run

Gotta tell you, I'm a big fudging fan of companies and people who take someone else's free fanwork and slap a fudging price tag on it. Just makes the creators SO much more likely to want to do that sort of thing again, right? [redacted].

Remember that time Tobias sold PCE fan projects? Also remember that time he included one as a "free gift" but really it was a total part of the package and he really was selling fan translations? Remember that time Tobias...
