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

I think I was the top trader like once. Back when I was really active selling the new stuff to make money for the retro stuff. Also did a few trades because I just had a much larger available list and want list. I am very content with how my collection list has evolved since I've been here.

It's nothing like CS, it's crap. You throw a hundred people onto one map and pepper it with weapons and see who's left when the battlefield keeps shrinking.

It's incredibly boring and winning is largely a thing of luck.

Only if you're not lucky you get to wait 20-30 minutes before starting a new game, but usually you'll go to move a piece a few minutes in and you just lose. Pretty sweet.

Was gonna go ahead and say "screw it" to Battlefront 2 for $35 on Origin, but that game stutters like a jerk on PC. Every time the game loads a new asset, or preloads a level during a cutscene, or loads another chunk of the level or shows a model for the first time, the game just ...stops.

I've got an SSD, so this is mildly infuriating. Everyone has this problem too, apparently, so I just said screw it and took advantage of their 24 hour return period. Could be a driver issue; I'll just wait for the game to hit $20 just to be sure.

So one of these random PCE filler games I got from @Lunar awhile back is pretty sweet. Neo Metal Fantasy. It's basically Phantasy Star II on the PCE. If this had been localized it would be like $400 now. Since it wasn't and it's a text heavy JRPG it's like $10 shipped from Japan.

Kega Fusion for life, I'm down to one Dreamcast and one boxed Non-TMSS Genesis Model 1, baby. Couldn't be bothered to keep any CD models around for less than a dozen games I'd ever want to play. frown

Let's see my list here.

Sonic CD (can go without, better port on PC)
Shining Force CD
Lord of Thunder
Snatcher
uhm. Keio
Robo Aleste?

You can hear people getting amped up and hyped, and then everyone takes their turn to say "Sayonara" essentially. If Capcom pulled this crap nobody would buy their games anymore.

If the games weren't insane and I could keep a system around for $40-50, absolutely, I'd go for a full set probably, looks sexy as hell on a shelf, and I DO wanna try everything out. But I look at the aftermarket prices and I'm just like "Ah, no"

Those cases, man. Only reason I regretski not collecting pysical, the shelf candy factor IS real, if you can stick with it long enough to get a proper collection going. PCE, Genesis and Sega CD are probably the three systems I'd go for. Way too late now though.

@DiamondDave Popful Mail is the truth. Very far from an RPG too. Collecting PCE games makes your shelf an explosion of color.

@tonymack21 Yeah I understand. I was getting Criterion blurays mostly and a few others as well (Ran was not a Criterion release I guess because it was a joint Japanese/French venture and Studio Canal still has the rights) and Amazon is actually pretty competitive on movie prices. Won't bill and ship until today, so it won't show until next week in the amazon thread.

@Lunar that reminds me I need to burn Keio and a few others. I've been on a burning spree but haven't done anything for Sega CD.

PCE games.

Or...
Blazing Lasers
Keith Courage
Bonk 1 & 2

Dragon Spirit

MC isn't even that good frankly, if you like that but you don't think Ordyne's a better game you're crap at judging games.

Hero Tonma's another one that's just as obscure and hard to come across as the other 99% of the library but somehow randomly shot up to ridiculous pricing. Some kids are just Turbotarded.

Magical Cheddar is super overrated. Coryoon is too expensive as well but better than MC. Cotton is better than both.

Soldier Blade, Final Soldier, Super Star Soldier, Spriggan, Lords of Thunder, Gate of Thunder, Nexzr, Gunhed/BL, PC Denjin, Star Parodier.

That crap's the top 10 shootun imo. I've played pretty much every shooter on the system.

The more I play Ordyne the more I hate it and love it, it's like R-Type which I would argue is probably better than most of the shmups on the system on a difficulty and satisfaction curve alone. You need to dance to the beat in order to get through those stages. It's not quite Darius Plus levels of bullcrap where if you get hit you basically have to hit reset. It's close but most deaths in R-type are recoverable. EVERY death in Ordyne's recoverable, because upgrades are all temporary anyways.

I paid $13 for Ordyne in 2015. I'd say it's easily worth that. It's probably gone up though.

You can get a super smokey HuCard only for $15, imported from Japan right now. The rest aren't worth buying loose, and the $30 was shipped from the US, the rest at $30 or above come from Japan. Turbo versions are WAY higher, because of Turbotards actually hitting BIN on these derp prices.

Pretty sure Yakuza 0 and Berseria should be available by then, possibly FBW. About to finish Stick of Truth, then moving onto Berseria and Yakuza 0, then FBW and Arkham City will probably be the next targets.

Edit: Crap, not Berseria, unless I put down Zesteria, that's the one I fired up last night. I'm looking forward to that one the least so I'm wanting to do it first, at least get to the point where I'm like "I'm not finishing this, moving on". So far it's not terrible... other than the dumb Native theming and awful intro. Also the protagonist runs like he's got a full load in his underpants

Hey, there's a fun game for any Tales fans. What's your favorite intro?

I may have to go with one of my least favorite games overall: Vesperia had a kick-ass intro that I loved, even in English. Maybe especially in English? But that's just based on the song; with music and animation taken into consideration, I think Tales of the Abyss smashes everything.

Berseria is set 1000 years before zestiria, I did it backwards, I played berseria and now I need to play zest, apparently there references including one big one so I'll see what that is eventually. apparently the ending of berseria means more if you played zestiria so i'll be looking forwards to seeing why.

Beat em ups are usually more tedious than RPGs especially when it comes to what amounts to "grinding" through enemies to move forward in the stages. But maybe it's just me that feels that way about some of them.

Lots of classic series are dead now but otoh maybe it's for the best in some cases. I certainly wouldn't trust Konami to do anything competent with Suikoden at this point.

Two incorrectly shipped packages this week (Ebay sellers fault, not USPS). Got a Club Nintendo pin set instead of Thomas the Tank Engine Sega Genesis (scored on that one, sort of).

Lots of PCE titles were like that. I believe Hero of Tonma's the same.

Found some bootleg posters on eBay, picked up three and I'll let you know how it went. He's on vacation so I may not get 'em for a hot minute. But they've got full 2'x3' prints.

Ouch.

I have a funnier one. I ordered a bunch of stuff from Amazon on Sunday. Guaranteed delivery date is today. They waited until last night to ship and had to split into two packages. So they paid for two next day air shipments. I wonder how much money they lost on that.

12 minutes is pretty rough. I suppose the 30 or so min games aren't much better but that's still more than double. Iirc Bonk is about an hour.

Enterprise is even like "Total rental cost $180", but that doesn't include having to buy insurance or the fudging $200 deposit. Which technically that doesn't count, until you're looking at a bank balance of $600. Then it counts a lot. Like, if the total cost was $300, that'd be easy street, no fudging problem. But nooooo

Without personal insurance they won't even let me drive it off the lot without full insurance. It's not an option to skip out. Trust me, if it were, I'd say fudge that noise. But even that isn't as lame as the deposit for me.

Last time I rented a car, the rep kept asking me questions as if opting out of insurance wasn't an option (e.g. "Which level of coverage do you want, basic, full, or super premium?" something to that effect). no I'm already double covered under not only my regular car insurance, but Amex as well. They must squeeze so much free insurance money out of people.

DiamondDave

Correct, if I had my own insurance I'm sure I could skip out, but without a car you can't really buy insurance except on a case-by-case basis like during rental, and you have no options, you just get fudgeed by the rental outfit.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/152835729455

I'll pick up another Everdrive after the new year. Considered selling the PCE/SuperCD-ROM2 combo but I was like, fudge that. If someone here wants it, I'll take ten percent off the top for ya. If I can raise $200 I think my bank account will be solid enough to get me through the holiday week, since when I get my next check I'm just good to go.

Got a few others:

Crash Trilogy, Horizon ZD Normal, Ratchet & Clank, Dark Souls 3: The Fire Fades (Gold) Edition, Call of Duty: WW2, all sealed.

Best Buy with GCU's putting this at $136 before shipping and taxes, all current sales taken into effect. I can ship this for $115.

I'm double covered too, but if you are renting for a few days I always recommend at least the coverage on the car. If you use your personal insurance, there's still your cost of deductible and most personal insurance coverage wont cover loss of usage which you better believe the rental company will charge you if they can, state law dependent, while the car is being repaired. Also your own personal coverage may not save your butt if someone else damages the car and has no insurance of their own to claim against. As far as cc coverage goes you have to use that card as payment at time of rental and to close out the rental and typically has some sort of associated cost with making a claim, which can take a really long time with the cc company. If I were going to be in a long rental I might be more apt to rely on these coverages, but for a week or less I highly recommend at least the loss damage waiver.

There is one thing I'm keeping on it, because I'm finding it hard to ...well find, but it's a patched Super CD-ROM2 image in the BIOS so you can keep the Everdrive in whatever CD-based system you want to and not have to take it out if you don't want to.

Morning. Been busy dealing with some bullcrap last couple of days. But anyway, glad we still hottest topic in the house.

With the RTT Secret Santa behind us, great job for everyone involved, also especially a big thanks to @FrictionPin for the list split suggestion and stepping in to help out so I can participate as well. love

Now, let's move on to Pulse Man. Who's done beatin' it?
I think @DefaultGen and @BleedingViolet so far? Anyone else? I can't let it be two GotM in a row I don't beat the game so I will try to sneak it in this weekend.

Lastly, we need to vote for the first Let's Play Together Game of the Month of 2018 since everyone gonna be busy next week. I'll need to go back to check what people already suggested but it will be the same as last month. 1 vote per person so make it count.

I beat quite a few old games this month, but Pulseman just didn't interest me.

Oh and my Lodoss War DVD sets are now available for trade if anyone is interested. I know with the blu being available for the first series these aren't worth a bunch anymore but I was hoping to trade them for another lower value anime set or two.

The series introduction seriously gave me goosebumps when it came up.

If this is ever cheap down the line I'll pick it up again. Just need to pad up my checking account.

Dammit it's not about liking the game it's about beating it. I voted for the Shinobi game. Ninjas forever. I've been a longtime ninja game fan since at least August 2017.

That's the mic I use for streaming, it's excellent for the price. I actually setup a noise filter to avoid everyone hearing everything in my house.

I wasn't sure how to do that, the options in Discord didn't really help honestly. I've got knowledge of audio transmission and algorithms but not signals and frequencies so much. I know you keep the gain as low as possible to reduce general background noise but noise filters, no idea.

Throw a heavy blanket over your head while you're recording. Algorithms, noise filters, whatever. Stop the background noise at the source raspberry

Okay, finally got everything hooked up that I'm going to. But I do have a question for our RGB/Scart people. The first switch I had was junk, so it's gone, but even on a better switch, whenever I have anything turned on through the scart switch, the SNES power light comes on. For obvious reasons, this does concern me, but should it? Does anyone else have this problem, and how can I correct it?

Stopped off at VStock during lunch. Someone had traded in a bunch of anime.

They had FMP on DVD and Blu. DVD set $45, Blu set $26. Thought that was funny.

Also, there was an older guy (50s/60s) with long hair that was looking over Cardcaptor Sakura dvds they had in. I was sure to let him know about the new release and he thanked me. We also shot the crap a bit about some shows like Ah My Goddess and a few others. Never would have guessed by looking that he was an anime fan.

I ended up scooping Karin (Chibi Vampire) Vol 2-6 at $6 a volume. They had volume 1 but it was oddly priced at $20. Eff that, that's the one volume that's always cheap online, go figure. I won't be needing my region 4 (AU) set anymore if anyone is interested.

You can power an NES through the +5V on the controller port. The SNES has +5V on the video multi-out port. Your switch probably doesn't isolate the +5V on the SNES side from the other devices connected to the switch. So the SNES gets that power which is connected to the LED:

Same here, a couple 80% off shooters are catching my eye, but I play PC games so rarely I am hesitant to put any money into more steam games when I have literally hundreds I've not played for more than a brief period

Wow that's really nice of you. Why did you guys decide to adopt so many kids?

That's one of the main reasons I wasn't actively participating on gametz for several years as well ..... Life and dating and work mostly but I guess we always come back here eventually 😊 It's a good and fairly honest place to trade and talk about our hobbies.

Congrats on that many years here sir! 😊

Well my wife and I were not able to have kids and so we looked at our options and we agreed adoption sounded terrific. About 5 minutes after our training finished it seems we got our first call hehe and we had two girls in our home. They were sisters, and 6 months after that my 3rd child came to us then the brother of the first two girls two years after that. Finally last year I adopted my nephew. So they are 13, 12, 12, 12, 9 and all filled with pre-teen drama lol. It is worth it

Three cheers for Kevster, very cool dude that is awesome to hear!

Do any of you guys have experience mounting a TV that's over 40" to be rotatable to tate mode? My wife surprised me last night with a discarded TV from her office, but the TV was being used as a "digital events poster" so it was vertically oriented the whole time it was in use. She said she got it for me for my "vertical shooting games" (I had never been so proud that she was my wife)

Anyways, I want to mount it horizontally so I can watch TV on it or play other games, but I would be remiss if I couldn't use it for the purpose she so thoughtfully grabbed it for me for :)

I am thinking I am going to mount it above the tv to the left of the arcade cab,

this actually made me remember something I was going to make a topic about. I would wager that this is pretty common for the most part amongst most of us, in that our wives/significant others don't share our extreme geekdom. whether it be for games, anime, sci fi, whatever.
as a single 35 (pushing 36) year old guy, its not nearly as common as it probably is for younger guys to find a woman who is as into all this stuff as we are. it just wasn't what the cool kids did back in the day. whereas gaming, superhero movies, etc are all the rage now, I know casuals who are all excited about star wars and super hero movies that never would have been back in the day, and yet don't know jack about star wars or superheroes, they just know its cool.

so I the topic was going to be about, if you had it to again, would you hold out for a geeky chick even though they are hard to find. I got asked by a friend if I wanted to get together soon, but she isn't into anything that im into at all, I know people who keep relationships going where they have nothing in common but I don't know how. To each their own but I just see myself unhappy in that case.

Pretty close actually. It's certainly an isolation issue but this is common on improperly built SCART switches and can actually damage your console. Each SCART connector should be separated properly from the others on the switch, in this case though, the power is backfeeding through the ports on the switch from the the rest. This is the reason why having another console powered on can turn on the light of another on a different port. Sometimes though, this can be by design, were two ports are connected together purposely for dual output.

Crap. So it's another dud switch. I did try changing the ports around on the box, but to no avail. I even had this one imported from the Netherlands, brand new, trying to make sure I avoided Chinese crap. Anyone have any recommendations on a 5-port SCART box? I don't see any lights coming on the other systems, but I don't want to chance burning out all my Sega systems from this. The current dud one is a Bainbridge...

From my perspective, geeky was just one aspect of who I was, she really wasnt into that but she was into me. I have Cerebral Palsy and you kind of go through these moments as someone with a disability that you just dont feel good enough for people at times. Games, usually RPG's were the type I could make the hero name "Kev" and the particular girl that was the love interest would be whatever girl I fancied at the time. There i didnt feel quite as inferior and plus I had cool powers lol Then i met my wife and she did the sweetest thing ever. She talked to a friend of mine to try to find me something I would like. She purchased Suikoden 2 and while she didnt get the sweeping story she smiled and watched lol. 17 years later she still smiles, maybe not so much smiling (Kev what is this on Paypal.....). Dont sell yourself short and keep moving. Probably a little more information than what you were wanting smile

And would be almost $200 shipped. If everything's going to be this damn expensive to get anything that works, I may just say fudge it and sell off the RGB stuff. At least the other methods just work. I'm getting burnt out enough on this crap to consider going back to an RF chain.

https://shmups.system11.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=48... Search for "cut a trace". If you have the same Bandridge switch, maybe this will help.

I was going to mention the cut trace fix as well. Only attempt if it is the same model or verify with someone familiar with electronics for your model. It's an easy fix but not for everyone.

I'm a complete klutz when it comes to this kind of stuff; do I just do a light scoring on the board with a blade at the marked point? If this is all I have to do, I can manage that. If there's any solder work to do after the fact, I wouldn't dare try it myself.

Regarding the switch boxes, the first switch I should have read reviews on, so I wrote it off. But when I spend $65 on a replacement box, I expect it to fully work. These are the first switches I've ever had problems with, and before this box, the most I ever spent on one was under $25. Even my cheap $6 HDMI switches work better, and in my eyes, this is a problem. I do not see "throw more money at it" as an acceptable solution. This $65 is already more than I would have spent for a couple of composite/S-video boxes and cables to get everything hooked up. But I figured I'd pay a bit more for the better quality. This is also why I'm not willing to spend another $65 (or $200) to try again. (And not having any more power outlets helps rule out the $200 box anyway.) The only other box I saw I could use was --182 shipped, uses USB for power, and still is more than I want to pay.

*sighs* I guess it's just burnout frustration. I try to find a reasonable balance between quality and cost. While I want the better picture, it's not worth that much to me. It's the same reason I won't get the GC component cables: the quality increase does not justify the cost. With how many years I played games over an RF connection (it was the only input on my first TV), it's also just not being worth the hassle anymore.

No solder work at all. You need to cut through the trace, the copper part is the trace which is under a light coating on the board. The best way to do that is with an exacto-knife. It doesn't need to be a wide cut, just make sure it goes through the copper trace itself, not just the finish on top. And, obviously a given, make sure it's not plugged in when you do that as you are cutting a power line trace.

Out of these the only ones I definitely haven't beaten are the ones I haven't played. I MAY have also beaten Golden Axe and River City Ransom but I'm not sure.

Nes: Kirbys Adventure
Gradius
Rygar

Genesis: Vector Man
X-Men

And out of all the available choices I know I haven't played I would go with only one of the Nes games. Probably Rygar.

I would definitely try Sonic 3 or maybe ...... Idk which other Genesis games are really common that are really good. Toe Jam and Earl? Idk.

It's a switch that can handle composite, svideo, RGBs,RGsB, RsGsBs, rgbhv (vga) and yuv. But you would need a lot of cables that most people don't have lying around to make svideo and rgb work. Hell even I don't have the svideo cables it would require. Also given how complicated that would be, it would be a good idea to label everything.

Anyway they are heavy duty switches. I was tempted by the one from @Lunar but honestly I'd want one with more inputs.

Yep, don't need it. I'm perfectly happy with my DVDO Duo. (Even if I have maxed out most of its inputs. I'm very happy I can use input 2 for both component and S-video, and still route one of the audio feeds into a digital audio in.) Plus, it uses power. Unless it runs on USB power, I have no outlets left, either. (I've maxed out a wall outlet with 2 of the 12-outlet surge strips, and have an extension cord from another outlet for the rest.)

Check on those 3. Both quests for Zelda. I started a couple of challenge playthroughs- the traditional no sword, and seeing how little stuff I can pick up in general. (Things like no letter, no extra heart containers, etc.)

They should really remake the first Zelda with better graphics and maybe a couple little extras here and there but mostly the same gameplay and music. Or maybe just re-record the music with high end orchestral arrangements or something.

I think that if they remade it with like realistic graphics but with almost identical gameplay it would be amazing.

Graphics? Meh. What I would love to see is another Zelda 1 type game, but to the scale of Zelda 2. There is a spot on the Zelda 2 overworld that corresponds to where the first one was; exploring the rest of the game to that detail would be epic! And while we're at it, add the rest of the Hyrule overworlds, also. A path to Gerudo Valley, Lake Hylia and the rest of Link to the Past... okay, now I'm dreaming too much...

That over world would be way too big! I'm talking about graphics because the gameplay from the first game is simple and great but it's just not as attractive as other Zelda games. I much preferred Zelda 2 but my favorite Zelda is also one of the least attractive.

Zelda on gameboy Links Awakening was always one of my favorite gaming memories. I still want to get the gbc version of it.

I got through Stage 2 of SoR pissed off and angry, Stage 3 drove me to the brink, and then I just kinda snapped until I beat it. The continue limit's pretty generous but it's not infinite, the last boss I was just throwing lives, but I got it. Tried another longplay with a continue and a half left and he raped me.

SoR's definitely worthy. Music's better, too, don't care how catchy Stage 1 of SoR2 is. After beating SoR, SoR2 didn't feel nearly as good to me, the art wasn't nearly as good to me (like, the pixel count and sprites are larger, I just didn't like them as much), the music wasn't nearly as good to me.

The Duo is nice, mine has been in constant use since I got it from @Lunar

I only mentioned it because you were looking for a quality switch. Of course, it's always a pain to have to change stuff up when you already have things plugged in. Honestly if you don't care that much about the visual difference going back to svideo isn't the worst.

But yeah it can do everything and I'm not sure how many people know that and it's probably confusing when most people look at it and just see the 5 bnc connectors.

Not sure I agree with the art, the characters look tons better to me in 2, music is pretty much a tie, but from the bit I have played of SoR I was sorely missing the additional moves the characters had in SoR 2. SoR3 on the other hand fails in all of the above, but I still want to beat it someday.

(like, the pixel count and sprites are larger, I just didn't like them as much) <- had to add it lol, because it looks better, but I liked it less. It's hard to explain, with SoR being a new favorite a lot of the sparkly affairs of the second didn't hold much meaning to me anymore.

No manual is fine, I prefer it actually, brings down arbitrary values.

Shining Force 2 is way better than Shining Force 1 and somehow Streets of Rage made your list and Shining Force 2 didn't?

I may not have finished a Shinobi game yet but I believe I beat the first 2 streets of rage games and they were okay .....

Never played Shining Force 2. If I haven't played it, I don't know if it's on my Must Have list.

Remember, this list is not exhaustive. It's just my personal Top 10, if I had to pick 10 games to have and to hold forever in sickness and in health, those are it right now. Two years ago, SoR would *not* have made the list.

I will almost definitely play those in 2018. It's probably time to go back to my childhood roots and play some Genesis games that don't take advantage of the multimedia extravaganza that is Sega CD

I will play shadow dancer and probably even (ugh) Shinobi 3.

I'm just hoping you guys will find a way to play Pulseman it's a really fun game. I get why @DefaultGen found it boring though since he basically slogged through it in one sitting. It's not an easy game though unless you know how to play it already which I never had.

I'll probably even try to pass the first two streets of rage games again if I have time between earning swagbucks to help me pay auction debts so I can afford food and too many games next month. Whether or not they are lets play together games.

If it helps there is a debug code that lets you rename all of your characters! I'm not sure if that hurts or helps your chances of wanting to play it but I know I loved that little Easter egg back in the day.

I'm changing my vote for January,

Lets play Shining Force 1 or 2

Whichever one gets more votes I'll vote for. They are both great and both are available to almost everyone here on 360 or PS3

https://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&lo...

https://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&lo...

For super cheap and you get
Shinobi 3, Streets of Rage and a TON of other great Genesis games for less than an Snes or Nes classic.

There's even Shining Force 1 on dreamcast in a collection

https://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&lo...

And both Shining Force 1 and 2 are both available on Sega Genesis 😊

I'm voting for 1 of those this month. Lets play something that takes awhile to pass that should appeal to everyone here. It's not about twitch reflexes it's about in depth and at the same time easily accessible strategy. Everyone who posts here is pretty intelligent so anyone here shouldn't have a problem finishing either of these games in January plus these are two of the most easily accessible and readily available games we could play not to mention cheapest if you get any of those 3 compilations I linked above.

Let me know what you guys think.

All I need is a good SCART switch at this point to plug into the Duo. I'm going to try to score that lead shown on the other site first; if that fixes it, all is well. But my Duo has 6 HDMI ports used, a switch box for SCART, a switch for component, and a switch for S-video. The composite box goes directly to the TV.

Sorry to burst your bubble but those greenbacks aren't going to be worth as much very soon if the republicans keep screwing over the 99%

It's getting to a point where the government might even shut down momentarily. I'm hoping the powers that be will work it out and NOT let that come to pass EVER, but my faith in these morons is dwindling.

On the upside though these retro games will be worth a lot more of those greenbacks when the inflation to keep the super rich happy rises and makes everyone else's money worth a lot less. So save those games for some rainy days ahead.

I find that lengthy rpgs and parenting young kids is not really compatible @Lunar, that being said thank the heavens for ps4's suspend mode, it took 4 months but I eventually finished P5! Being able to "drop" a game at a moments notice was supremely helpful instead of having to find a save point or finish a boss battle.

I just noticed it again. I haven't seen it since they added all these CG modules to it. Someone on the forum is wondering if members will get first crack at preorders because they're worried about it selling out scalpers.

Funny.

They should be worried about it selling at all.

That polymega thing will surprise everyone I think.

They announced it too early, but it has more funding behind it than any clone console before; it's a large team that's been funded and working on it for multiple years.

The hybrid emulation is not a buzz word, nothing like it's been tried before. I've played it, it's not a joke for sure. Depending on price I'd have said I would buy it when I saw it 6 months ago, and from what I hear it's made even more advances since then.

I just think these half measures are weird. Either original hardware only or full blown emulate and spend $0. But obviously, clone consoles have had success in the past.

The FAQ says the price target is under $300 for the thinger and $40-60 for modules. Whenever real prices come out I'll be sure to price it against just buying real hardware and an OSSC.

For me it's nice to play the same cart on HDTV with this, and then on a CRT with original hardware, keeping my saves all on one cart. The ease of setup compared to an emulator device is completely different as well.

Does the OSSC output HDMI, or Component?

Yeah I'm just not the market for this kind of thing.

@Gredler OSSC outputs to HDMI. Older models DVI. Pretty easy to convert it to w/e though.

Should have just kept them all like me. Herp derp.

I'm definitely going to buy an OSSC eventually. In the mean time they just keep adding more features and the firmware gets better. :D

Projected estimate. And of course the modules will cost more so if you want it to play everything it's definitely gonna cost you.

Or do you mean the OSSC?

Really lol? I already started Streets of Rage 2 just to see what's up with it.
It's okay so far, but just like PulseMan I'm playing it on my arcade stick ..... I'm old I think my right middle finger is getting carpal tunnel just from Genesis games on this stick. It's more intensive on the middle (normal attack) button than PulseMan was. I do have a regular pad but other than the pain I really like this stick and I like being able to play with it.

We've basically got 5 supporting votes for SF1 though so I think we're good unless people wanna just say lets play whichever Shining Force game we like best. I think that works too 😊

@BleedingViolet, I thought about doing 2 games simultaneously but that would just complicate things and take the highlight away from both games. So I think we should stick to 1 game a month.

So looks like it's a choice between

Sega Genesis Shining Force
Sega Genesis Streets of Rage

I would choose Shining Force however I lack a genesis and game for the attempt, I remember that game more for the friend of mine that would throw his controller when a character died. His parents were not pleased lol

Rental total with deposit was $350, about 150 less than I was preparing for. Nissan Maxima, what a dogin' car. I got the "last car on the lot" deal even though I rented economy lol

I'm just playing streets of rage on my own, but I know some people prefer certain installments of RPGs over others.

But I'm glad it's narrowed down some. Plus the other good thing is both of these games are available on the Sonic Genesis Collection on both PS3 and 360 and both compilations are pretty inexpensive so Streets of Rage and Shining Force will be good easily accessible choices for everyone here.

Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection is legit. It's a Genesis on a disc.

I am hoping for Shining Force mainly just to mess with @DefaultGen and see if he will play it. The original is pretty rough around the edges now, even compared to similar games that came out later in the 90s. It's not as rough as Vasteel at least...
