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

@Lunar

So let's review the pro and cons of this as it relates to my setup. Extron/ to v20 to tv

Pros
HDMI!
Wider array of inputs (composite svideo, d 15
Optical audio
Better scaler than my VP20

Cons
Only HDMI output?
Will still need extron for multiple component RGB systems
Temporary stop gap for OSSC 1.6?

20 has optical audio. Also has 2 composite and svideo inputs instead of just one of each on the Duo.

Both only have hdmi out. 30/50/50pro have some more flexible outputs.

Duo is absolutely a better processor than a 20 though.

I thought OSSC is ideally paired with a video scaler like this. OSSC just takes lines, doubles them, and blasts them out the other end. You can do all your zooming, cropping, panning, and upscaling to 1080p by pairing it with a video processor.

Yea, that's what @ErickRPG is doing. Though he just wanted OSSC to work with his TV but its a nice combo I hear.

I think OSSC + DVDO ends up being more expensive than the FM lol

I don't know what you're smoking. Your gif is scaled down 256x256 to 80x80 for GTZ so it's the one that's blurry! I made mine from a sprite sheet to be exactly 80x80! I had to edit the sword color so it would show up on both background colors though, so mine is BS in that sense.

And there's no 100% correct NES color palette, It was determined by TVs or something. NTSC = Never Twice the Same Color. I don't know how it works. All I know is the sky in Super Mario Bros. is purple and I hate when emulators make it blue.

So duo + OSSC, or is that redundant?

@PlayYing Some people seem to really like pairing it with 50/50pro. I don't think it matters much and like @Lunar said at that point, may as well get a FM.

With that addressed it's time to dog about eBay again. Just got an offer for $10 shipped on a game that has to ship in a box. So I clear like $4? Eat crap buddy. Now that I think about it in general, I'm going to remove it from eBay and dump it at the game store along with some EU brand:::Sega Dreamcast games and Famicom games.

Surprisingly tasteful! My pre-move setup's boring, TV on a multishelf storage crate, switch docked on top of a USPS handler crate. Just have the SNESC and Switch out pretty much, may dink around with a multi-console setup after the Ikea over here opens and I take a look at what they've got. Or I may just display them in sections but unhooked. Maybe do some tasteful LED lighting.

I'm probably the closest to the next DonLad if we're strictly talking about hoarding whatever garbage video games I can find. I would totally get monthly garbage subscriptions but I get games even cheaper than that so in a sense I'm out-DonLadding the DonLad I even bought some mystery ds games that showed up yesterday

Snatcher is a burned copy. I wish I was ballen enough to buy Snatcher out right. The CDX was just acquired from @Snatcher and the AVS comes from @Lunar. Honesty, the picture is nice on the PVM but the sony triniton has a good enough picture for me. I am tired of trying to get Geometry perfect so I may get rid of both and get an OSSC.

You have an empty cube there; by definition, you have more space than I do. There's a reason I collect cart only and thinpack my DVD-based games. I even considered big binders, but it's too much work to redo them when I get a new game...

I have JUST an OSSC. And it is much much better than any DVDO I've ever tried. The line 4x mode has done wonders for some of my PSOne games. It's made a game like King's Field II palatable on a 65" screen. That's something no DVDO can do.

I would say DVDO's are worth it as a way to get RGB and S-videos hooked up to modern TVs and looking good doing it, with no defects like those cheap chinese HDMI converters. I have not seen anything more expensive than the VP20. But if I had $200 to spend, I would skip the iscan and go straight for the OSSC. The less expensive DVDOs in the $100 or less catagory are worth it.

I go through spurts of systems I'm frequently playing (unless it's trash like N64) but I keep them all because I don't want to have to go buy say, a Sega CD, when I want to play something on that again.

Honestly, 20 inches and less it's likely going to be pretty spot on unless it was stored craptily or saw heavy use. Now a CRT projector, that's annoying to calibrate. I currently have almost nothing hooked up as I'm working on it.

As far as PVM vs regular SD tv sets, it's a pretty solid difference but it varies person to person how important it is. I notice a difference even with composite but when I was playing some Super Mario World 2 it wasn't such a difference that I haaad to get out the PVM to play. It's even much less of a difference with a VGA CRT monitor though certainly a different look/feel.
