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 brand:::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

Super Mario Land is fun. As a brand:::Game Boy launch title, it may not knock anyone's socks off now, but I enjoy it and SML2 quite a bit.

My general experience with Mario games is that it is kind of hard to NOT have fun playing them.

@Lunar is this new from last time you were scart switch shopping? They made a 3 scart switch for $40. I bought it, got it in, and it works great. Automatic switching and everything. I don't personaly need more than 3 scarts for one TV any way, so this is perfect.

(for now I plan to have PS2, SNES, and Gen/CD on this TV + DC which uses VGA any way)

Ah cool would love to see that one. But this one does the job. The middle of my cabin is gonna look clunky with all the scart cables and stuff going to the OSSC. So I don't think what my scart switch looks like matters. lol.

I'm pretty excited though. I finally got my OLED displaying my old games. And I can still hook up 2 RGBs + an s-video system downstairs. I have quite a few systems hooked up at once. Now I don't have to keep putting systems back in the box all the time, haha!

Noooo. If you've got any decent gun 'n run experience it's a challenge and you'll have to restart a few times but it really AIN'T that bad. I finished the first map in a bit less than an hour, mostly blind (saw a few fights in Angry Joe Show, but it was usually him dying a few seconds later)

I think the main thing now is that most games are so damn easy that as soon as something new and remotely challenging comes along people are all ERMAGERD.

The way I equate to NG to requiring muscle memory and pixel perfect accuracy.

Cuphead you know you done fudged up.

Oh?! That wasn't DG sarcasm...?!

Surprised how relatively cheap the game is.

Isn't there some Ninja Hawaii Five-O game that's like $500?

So are we just gonna call Ninja Gaiden the pinnacle of gaming difficulty? Is there no other (Gen 3 and 4) game that is harder than NG? (that is also fun to play?)

Ha yea, I think some games aren't hard in difficulty, it's because some gaming mechanic is retarded, or controls like melted marshmallows

You can't add caveats specifically to exclude The Mutant Virus.

But there's also games like Arkanoid, High Speed, and Ikari Warriors.

Air Fortress is hard (can't get past level 4...) but it is pretty fun and has some interesting mechanics. Plus it's still cheap, being a self-published HAL game that's not Lolo 3.

Here's a good challenge. Outside of the ones we have beaten for Let's Play Together(Ninja Gaiden, Castlevania, Monster in My Pocket), Everyone can name one game that you think is hard and would be a good challenge.

In this case let's limit it to brand:::Nintendo Entertainment System NES/Famicom only.

I remember Bucky O'Hare as super hard when I was younger. Played with a couple of friends who were older than me, we took turns trying to beat it and couldn't. I also remember Batman was tough but don't remember if we ever beat it.

@DefaultGen - The Mutant Virus
@sailorneorune - Air Fortress

Also re: Ninja Gaiden 3, after playing yesterday, I actually have played it before. The way bosses light up when hit and the stupid half moon ninpo are very familiar.

Uh what? Ninja Gaiden isn't even technically harder than the first Castlevania I played the living crap out of both. THE ONLY THING THAT MAKES NINJA GAIDEN SEEM HARDER IS THE 6-1 RESET!

You guys are giving that one punishing design flaw way more credit than it deserves. Other than that minor nuisance I can pass ninja Gaiden super fast Castlevanias bosses are far more difficult than ninja gaidens. But they both take precision timing and character placement to pass properly. Plus even with the Cheats in Castlevania it's still harder.

I think there was someone here who was interested in the "replica" NES Classic I was shipped by Amazon? I've got it listed for $80 on eBay, will ship it to anyone in RTT interested in fake crap for $50. Hit me up, don't want to pend a trade for it, we'll just work it out in Paypal.

Not even saying it's a poor price relative to what people are paying but $50 for a Chinese emubox, damn.

I could go lower, I care less about eBay retards... Mmm, $35 maybe? Long as I can get a plate of Spaghetti after shipping I'm happy honestly, though I'd rather get two

So, yea, I don't need a DVDO Duo, after some testing. It's just a bit excessive of a multimedia device that can also take S-Video, RGB, YPbPr and 8 whopping HDMI inputs, it can output to two different display sources.

For Sale: DVDO iScan Duo

This will just be the unit plus Power Supply. You will need your own BNC cables, Scart cables, and no remote sadly. We have a ton of upscaling experts here who can help guide you if you are new to this.

brand:::PayPal $220 shipped.


Here's a stock pic of the back of the unit:

Well I think 50 is a fair price, thank you sir I wish I could afford it. But too many things being juggled for me now. Have you at least tried it out to allay some of the concerns people here might have?

That "might help" get it sold for the second plate minimum.
