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

GB pacing for Castlevania was super crap. I'm guessing this is how they decided to elongate the experience or something, I consistently hated every GB CV title I played, I would be shouting "goooOOOOOOOOOO" at the screen.

If it moved at speed-walk pace instead of walking pace, it would look like this on the POS Game Boy screen.

How is the ds4 performing? That's what I need to do I think . The rock is still better I think than the original that I have...it's ok for "simpler" games like turn based rpgs but not as great for other things.

I picked up a gamesir G3 also that I like pretty well.

Mad Catz SFIV FightPad, it's not really necessary, but it's got the Saturn-esque 6 button configuration.

How are they for pew pews? I'm a forever scrub, and quite terrible at most fighters, but still like to play them.

There is a Hori RAP V for sale on newegg for 150 with the meh MVCI for sale in my preferred color of white, but space and wife concerns.

sick, i was going to say i did some more research today and was gonna come tell you that instead of the drone i was just gonna bite the bullet on the RAP 4, everything says its as good as the qanba obsidians pretty much unless you are the very highest level tourney player, and was the only stick you'd ever need.
amazon hasnt had them in stock but this deal is sick! id def say for this kind of deal to return the mini and get this, its getting mvci for free.

it looks like only the black may come with the game, but thats the one i want anyway

i havent been very impressed with mvci but its not the worst. its no mvc2.

are you newegg premier to get the free shipping?

this will end just as a i get paid again....maybe close...

Well nobody cares about those silly old characters anymore, according to capcom. It's all about the Avengers and The Guardians now. They're so right though, but i wonder why capcom isn't doing the same to their roster, i mean instead of filling the cast with great characters like Leon, and Ken, and... uh, Ace Attorney, they have Mega Man X. Who even knows what the fudge a Mega Man X is anymore? Or a Mike Haggar, or Morgan, and white haired dante, who looks nothing like the modern one.

The only way to play shmups is on an arcade stick. I haven't fired one up with a regular controller in forever. Much better precision movement is the key.

So the xRGB mini is nice. But the quality increase is so marginal compared to my DVDO set up. I don't think it's worth the effort.

I even got a cable to make it work and all.

It's also quite limited compared to the DVDO machines(less HDMI, only 1 S-video, and the most painful of all, no YPbPr)

I like it a bit more versatile.

Thanks for the input. Yeah I feel once you have something that can handle a Scart connection it wason't going to be huge. The main thing for me with OSSC is I'd be happy with DVDO it just didn't work with my OLED so I hope OSSC does. Plus I look forward to trying the line tripler and scanline options with it.

I am getting buried in Japanese electronics, so here it goes, still considering but:

xRGB mini Framemeister w/box, remote, JP-21 cable, whatever else that came in the box.

I will also throw in EuroSCART to Framemeister XRGB mini passive adapter cable, which enables your good old regular scart cables to work, it cost me $20.

$350 shipped.

That's the main benefit, imo. I believe I mentioned before I went the DVDO route because of flexibility and of course, handling of film content.

I'm deciding to keep the FM or the VP30, i picked up a spare DVDO Duo earlier last month so I'm thinking Framemeister for games and the Duo as a all purpose machine thats also a back up if needed.

Duo performs similarly to a VP30 with card, and it has a multitude of extra options like 8 HDMI input and 2x output, which works perfectly with my desktop and TV set up without additional equipment. I realized with each extra piece of (switch, passthrough, cable. Or what have you), there's an additional layer of problems with this type of old electronics.

I have mild interest in trading for the Duo at some point. Don't have enough fodder atm though.

Yeah. I get what people say when they say this is the easiest Ninja Gaiden. After you beat it, you've memorized every last thing by necessity, so it's no problem. The hard part is putting in the time to get to that point. The final bosses aren't too bad either. Jaquio is still a dog.
