new Thread Description
Wow, can't believe it's been more than a year since we started RTT. I feel like we have become a community of our own within GameTZ. We have our regulars and even some new comers. I hope 2018 brings us more like-minded retro gamers who will come here for a place of retro inspiration. When I started Retro Trade Thead (RTT), it was called "The Retro Trading Thread", kinda like how FB was "The Facebook", heh, I was just hoping for a group of retro gamers who share the passion and the thrill of collecting and playing Retro games. The result so far has exceeded my expectations and more. I am playing more retro games than ever and while my collecting is on and off, I know I have been enjoying more retro gaming in 2017 than my previous 5 years combined. I hope RTT members have similar experiences. 2018 will be an even better year, as we have established group events like RTT Secret Santa and our monthly Game of the Month, which is getting more popular as more people participate. I am hoping to bring RTT Podcast in 2018 where 2-3 RTT members will talk about monthly topics and other aspects of retro collecting.

Retro game buying and selling, collecting, playing, collectarding, upscaling, speedrunning....whatever your retro passion is, RTT will have a place for you and for everyone who participates in our discussions, whether occasionally or frequently, will continue to find value and fun in our thread.

Thank you for participating and making RTT the hottest topic every month in 2017!

Old Topic 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 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

Yeah I beat it yesterday afternoon but I guess it would have been night time in New York. Or early evening.

I started working on Streets of Rage 3 last night too. But I only got through stage 3 and had already used a couple of continues and realized I would not be able to beat it AND Streets of Rage 2 before midnight my time.

But if I cared for beat 'em ups, I'd probably like SoR more (and eventually SoR3 if I ever got dem skills). SoR2 is probably too easy to really seriously get into.

I feel like I want to do a game of the month runback with all the games I got close to beating. Castlevania, MMX, Streets of Rage, Pulseman. That would be a fun afternoon (or couple of days?).

I will definitely tune in for Castlevania. Post here when you're on Frankenstein.

There are a few things I liked better about it actually. It had a more old school feel which I do really like. Some of the stages looked really good like the muscle beach was cool with the waves washing up. Maybe not better than the amusement park stage from SOR 2 but the games are different enough that there's reason enough to play both.

I wasn't too into the music but then again I'm into old school punk rock mostly with alternative rock mixed in. That was actually one of the things I thought all of us on RTT could do together this year too, is create our own music and share it here. Maybe have competitions or something and use specific games that have music creators to use to make the music. Maybe not but it could be fun and get people excited about doing stuff here.

Mario paint has a music maker in it for instance. But there are many more advanced (and thus usually way more complicated and/or frustrating) music generator games out there on various systems.

Anyways I played SOR 2 twice before January so it's harder to compare the two games side by side right now since my memory is already fuzzy on it.

So this Sega Dreamcast VGA cable from Polish cable make thefoo83 (ebay username) is pretty good. Right now he is working on some more with a switch to trick games that will work in VGA but are not technically compatible. Very good solution for under $30 shipped.

I compared directly to the box I'm sending to DD. It's close, at least on the CRT monitor I tested on. Certainly close enough for me.

I work in telepresence and have customer complaining about motion handling today. They don't have enough bandwidth for high-resolution, 60fps video and they're complaining about crappy their $100k+ system looks in motion. I go to work, tell people 30fps is bullcrap, come home, go on forums to spread the word that 30fps is bullcrap. High framerates are my life.

I've always been of the feeling that I would rather put that extra HP into higher res textures and more graphical effects over frame rate. 30fps is perfectly fine for an action adventure non competitive style game.

eBay, 350.00 for just the system. The guy got it in Jan but it broke, he sent it for repairs and wants to send it direct to me just the system once he gets it back from Microsoft. It will still have almost a year warranty so I am cool.

I definitely send PS1 games in a box. The only thing I send it mailers is PS2 sized games, or cords and stuff that won't break.

It's totally fine to send them in a mailer. It's just that some people (particularly large eBay/Amazon stores) don't exactly use common sense when shipping stuff. Plus it's super low value so if it gets damaged it's w/e to them.

For my OSSC peeps, this is a remote control overlay for our ghetto ass remote. If you're like me and don't have the buttons memorized? This will be a very valuable buy.

If interested, maybe we can do a group buy. (Especially if the guys @Wheels617, @PlayYing, and...who else? We trade all the time anyways, and I can include it in our next trade)

AFAIK, it's the same 4 GBP to ship for 1 or 3 of these.

Everything except the package for @Tad today was first class in a box. I just jammed too much crap into there for Tad. Lol.

It does make a difference now though, because a mailer would have weighed less on some of these so I could have pinched some pennies on the PS1 games to you and DG if I really wanted to I guess.

That crossed my mind and its possible, but I think he's just very particular about the condition of the plastic wrap. He was asking what deals I could make him on other games and asking specific questions about the condition of the shrink wrap. Its probably gonna be a headache that ends up with him returning the game because the shrink wrap has scuffs on it and leaving a negative commented positive that I call ebay and get removed.

Definitely harder. Tougher AI, the handling is squirrelier and it's easier to crash. The framerate is worse, but the Hornet and menus look like the arcade this time and the music is all original unlike the screwed up versions in CCE. Man, I wish we just got a physical arcade port instead of all these wonky versions frown I think I prefer this one just because the car graphics and music are so much more nostalgic.

Arcade mode of course:

Also common systems like PS2, Xbox, N64, PS3, Wii,360 Genesis, NES, GB GBA etc, if anyone needs any relatively easy to find game system I've been hoarding them and probably have multiples of it. Gonna work on listing those on ebay soon.

Inspired by @diamonddave's constant reminder to "EMULATE IT!" I can now move my Sega CD and Sega Genesis stuff thanks to this controller. I still have my "g6", this controller feels great.

I gotta set up the gen/cd emu on my new computer but I can't wait to try it out. Well made replication controllers like the wireless 8bitdo SNES classic controller and this hyperkin G6 definitely add to the experience. This has been really fun streamlining my collection. I just want to play a few scd and gen games with an authentic feel. I don't really "need" $300 and $100 games sitting on my shelf. It will be nice to finally play Snatcher without spending $500. smile.

I'm kinda half way now. Emulate where an authentic feeling controller is available. Keep what is not easily emulated. Still going to hang on to Sega Dreamcast and Sega Saturn. And PlayStation just due to the PSOne and LCD screen I have ready to play in my computer desk drawer. Plus PlayStation has so many RPGs I love it's worth it to me to have the system.

The one thing about Snatcher is there are some shooting sequences that might be tricky emulating. Great game though.

Eh, not everything they make is crap. The g6 has a 4 star rating on amazon and I've gotten it in and it has a nice weight and feel to it. Extremely close to the original. I can't even really tell a difference when holding it.

What do you mean? You just move the reticule with your controller.

Don't companies pay for Amazon reviews?

I'm sure the controller is fine/usable though. I just use a random USB logitech controller for my old emulation and it's totally fine. I probably paid like 50 cents for it I don't even remember but I know I'm a cheapass.

Fair enough. That game just absorbed me. I completed the sequences both ways. Initially I did it with a controller.

Let me know if you find the Rainbow Drop. I'm pretty sure the hunt for the Rainbow Drop is taking me longer than the rest of the game combined so far. Other than this, the NPCs have really spelled out exactly what to do.

I miss having a HPB close enough to go to regularly.

I just bought a bunch of blu-rays with @DefaultGen 's money. Waffled around a bit, canceled some stuff but settled on more Ranma (almost done now, also thanks to @DiamondDave for very fair values on OAV/movie set and set 6 LE) and some ARRRRRRNOLD movies (I almost have all his pre-governor films on blu now.

Ok @diamonddave and our other emulators. Can you help me get my gen6 button pad working with RetroArch? I love retroarch because you can have box pics, and it can act as a central hub for all of your different systems. But retroarch's default input mapping is for a 4 button with 2 analogs controller. How do I program a 6 button genesis pad into retroarch?

that's when it asks for L shoulder button, L analog etc. . And it only gives me 4 buttons. ABXY. Not ABC, XYZ. That's my issue. I want to map a genesis6 sytle controller for Genesis and SegaCD games.

Try mapping it in a game and saving it to that core? That's about all I got. I don't have this kind of controller to really help troubleshoot with you fully unfortunately.

Eh I don't agree. I've already started Earthbound on the SNES classic. I'm just going to use Kega Fusion instead of RetroArch for genesis/segacd. There are just a few games I absolutely want to play. This is just about being able to play them on a authentic feeling 6 button controller so I can sell the few games I own.

Why play em on the cart if I'm gonna sell the cart? Main thing is I'm moving toward playing newer games and I just wanted to make sure I could get this controller working before I sold my SCD stuff. Doesn't matter. I'm using kega fusion and I already have a genesis and scd rom set of my favorite games I downloaded years ago. I already got the 6 button controller working.

ErickRPG
GameTZ Subscriber Triple Gold Good Trader Global Trader - willing to trade internationally

main thing is owning all of those games made me feel like I HAD to play them. Streamlining my collection to just the newer stuff, which there is already enough to keep me busy for years. Makes me feel like I can play what I WANT to play. Instead of HAVE to play. That is the reason. I mean I can play Snatcher and Keio and Crusader of Centy now. Which are all super expensive, but I want to play them.

Lunar
GameTZ Subscriber 850 Trade Quintuple Gold Good Trader This user is on the site NOW (8 minutes ago)

If you have no qualms about emulating, then CDRing them shouldn't be out of the question. You could just burn some CDs and play Snatcher and Keio. Crusader of Centy is a fraction of a price in the form of a Everdrive.

I'm not against emulation at all, just seems counter-productive to me that you get rid of original hardware to play emulation, and buying new controllers for it etc.

Anyway, whatever makes you happy man.

Just seems a bit backwards to me.

ErickRPG
GameTZ Subscriber Triple Gold Good Trader Global Trader - willing to trade internationally
3-Feb-2018(#156)
Not really counter productive when you consider the hardware and games I own will bring me in $1000+. I mean if you are at the point you are burning CDRs then it doesn't matter either way does it. Remember I can't sell on Ebay like you all, it's not easy to sell $300+ games outside of Ebay. So this saves me all the stress of dealing with adding something that expensive to the collection.

I'm just trying to get my collection down to a more emotionally managable number. I think I'd still be at around 10+ systems even after my new "purge".

Sorry if I came across as antagonistic, not my intention at all. I feel like I have been there that's why I am saying this. To an certain extent, I am still dealing with an acute form of [whatever this condition is].

[whatever this condition is] - the feeling of having to play everything you own before getting rid of it.

Like I have spent an exorbitant amount of time before, tweaking around emulators, I'd hit a road block, find a solution(usually hours of research forums online), I'd test different controllers etc.

I spent so much time on it and didn't get to play games at all. By the time I got everything set, I was burnt out.

With easy systems like Saturn(Pseudo Saturn) and Sega CD(CDR ready playable), I would just play the games you want, if too expensive, trying burning CDRs. And emulation can always be a back up way to play.

PS2 and PS1 are also easy, I have a modded PSone with LCD(same as you), also have a modded PS2 and Japanese PS2 for the random games. Prob gonna get a PS2 LCD at some point.

By modded you mean modded to play burns? The LCD is super hard to mod I hear. Aren't PS2 LCD's super rare? I searched and barely found any.

I like my set up for PSOne, I like my setup for SNES. (I think SNES classic is great because I can play the fan translated RPGs in English, so it's everything all in one small box, nice a workable with a pretty interface). Just not sure where I'm heading with the gen/scd route.

I probably won't either. I mean I bought a Japanese PS1 just to not have to deal with the required method for playing them on an unmodded US system.

@Lunar I just had a weird thought. Now that @DefaultGen has a speedrun record setting time (not the fastest in the world but higher than at least one other persons official speed run)

Do you think adding a section in the OP for speed runs and records with video links might be something nice to do?

Battle Garegga, Mushihimesama Futari , DoDonPachi Dai-Ou-Jou or Ketsui. Those are the options. I'd hear arguments for Layer Section and Espgaluda II maybe.

The A+ answer was Pop'n Twinbee but Detana and Yahho would have got a passing grade. First Twinbee is kinda trash, esp on Famicom. I'd play it if it gets voted for, but I'd hope not. If we vote for an NES shooter it should be Zanac.

Yeah all the "Ray" games are pretty good tbh. Underrated series from Taito.

Mars Matrix is excellent but I will also throw the Giga Wing games out there as well as Border Down. Those are the 4 really great ones that are still locked to Dreamcast. Everything else, and I love the Dreamcast, someone should get on other consoles unless they just really love the Dreamcast.

Seems like the shmup genre is wide open and there are many different styles to like.

I probably mentioned this a few times already in this thread but I'm a Psikyo guy, anything by them is yes

Just bought Strikers 1945 II from eShop, I hope they keep pumping out these. They need to come out with a screen stand that can turn tate, shouldn't be too hard to engineer one that takes after one of those car mounts that attach to the windshield.

Nice. I'm going to end up with pretty hefty eBay bucks again mostly due to being able to buy the power amp I did on an eBay bucks promo (I think 6%).

If anyone is looking for a short, free game to play, Streemerz is freaking awesome and it only takes a half hour or so. I'd heard of it but never played it because the stupid name (it's a reimagined mash up of a broken Action 52 game and Bionic Commando). It's got infinite/fast lives like Super Meat Boy, so it won't roadblock you if you just want to play it once.

Just throwing this out there, but I think our game of the month should be something that's not stupidly expensive. So I vote for Detana Twinbee, Life Force, or Legend of the Mystical Ninja (I know the last one isn't a shmup, but I don't care).

I personally like having a longer game of the month, since it means people will be playing it (and thus discussing) longer. A shmup could a bonus or high score game, since I doubt anyone is playing through both Neutopia and Zelda ALTTP just for this thread raspberry

I've really wanted to. I'll get my ass kicked, use escape wings and like, the dog won't heal!

WHY WON'T THE dog HEAL? I'm not paying no 200 gd gold for a potion, outta here with that nonsense. I didn't think it was possible for a game to be stingier on life up drops than LTTP, but Neutopia's breaking records

You only need to remember 3 people caves: the two closest bomb and potion shops in the first sphere (because I'm not dealing with those overpriced late game shops) and wherever the nearest medic fangirl is, or just go back to mom. There's nothing to do with gold in the game except buy more health potions, so I didn't have a big issue. I got some sweaty palms if I was about to die to a boss thinking about grinding my health potion fund back up though.

I like a good bullet hell game. Though I have to admit, sometimes I wonder, how the fudge do you dodge a full screen of bullets?

I am not that good at shmups, I like slower pace shooters where there are enough time and room to maneuver.

Reason I am not too in love with the Donpachi games is that sometimes I feel like I can't dodge at all.

I didn't play Elemental Gearbolt, @Gypsy. I'm waiting until my girlfriend wants to play with me. I did play Spriggan. Lots of the weapon seems to suck. Green Green Green or Green Green Yellow are the only super effective ones I really like. If you have random orbs you're pretty screwed.

There was definitely one or two sets of power ups I liked the most. Can't remember which one now though.

Do you other pew-pewers play with sticks?

I recently picked up a doa4 xb360 hori stick for under 40 for just this purpose. Works pretty good on dodonpachi and mushihimesama futari. Bonus is that it's also pc compatible.

Honestly the game is easy enough to 1CC w/ w/e you want but yeah some combinations are better than others. Just be sure to eject your crapty pods as bombs liberally.

I'd say I already miss Spriggan but I got alcohol on my pc last night and burned off a copy from my own rip.

Gearbolt is legit my favourite light gun game. In a genre that is mostly really samey, it stands out for gameplay and style reasons.

Analogue hinted that their next project is Sega related. I hope they remake the Genesis, a console that already works, has RGB and component cables already available, and costs like $25. Paying $200 for a Genesis is basically as ridiculous as paying $500 for an NES.

I would like to get some Guncons yes. I have a PS1/Saturn combo that works fine but I'd like to get the Namco one for PS1 and a PS2 gun (presuming this matters and I can't just use a PS1 guncon for everything).

Sounds good. Apparently some games only work with the konami gun, others the namco gun. Fudgeers. Lol.

Have you used the capcom/madcatz fight sticks?

something like this?



I was looking into getting that 8bitdo stick in hopes it was similar to the those capcom fightsticks that I am super familiar with, and I could mod out the stock buttons and stick, but now I am wondering if they're not as similar in shape and innards.

I think you can mod the 8 bit do stick, but I didn't want to.

This may be a good a time as any to unveil my new fightstick. For the cost of a Virtura Pro Saturn joystick, this is built like a tank and can be played almost anything. All sanwa buttons and Brooks Universal Fight Board. I think the only modification I would do is the gate and possibly put a plexi on it to make it look like a candy cab.

As I said it has a universal Brook board in it so it should play most things. It has a db25 port for Supergun and with an adaptor can do db15 controls (neo geo) and with the USB a interface it can do most modern system.


It probably could do a game if I wanted to, but it's milled steel and weighs like 25 lbs.

what is the budget on this? I bought stick a few months back and found it in my research this is a product that you get what you pay for, the hori rap 4 kai was 150, and I really like it, it feels good and hori is about the only thing most serious stick players recommend that's not sanwa. for another 50 I could have went qanba obsidian but wasn't ready to commit 200 at the time not sure I was gonna like it. I was going mostly for fighting games though in my thinking.

ok, just wondering so might know what to recommend, I shopped them pretty heavy just a few weeks ago, but was mostly looking at stuff like the rap 4, qanba obsidian, dragon etc, mostly plastic casings, I didn't really look at any metal ones. this rap 4 is durable so far, and has pads on the bottom to keep from sliding in your lap or on a desk, and more could always be added.

That's like saying you can get a Sega Tron for less than a X eye. You could but it's not the same.


And $200 would be the empty stick. With fightsticks it's all about what you put in it, for compatibility and function (and for the looks).

Alot of serious players like the te2. I couldn't find them at that price when I was shopping for sticks, but if you can get a good condition one at 120 they are really good.. I don't like the square body's that much though so I'm glad I got the hori with the more comfortable shape to rest the wrist... I might've dealt with it though had I found a good condition one for 120 lol

how about 4 button arcade usb sticks? I don't want an 8 button fighting stick. Too many buttons for the type of arcade games I'll be playing.

You are probably looking at a custom build, case, board , buttons and joystick. You can always disable the bottom 4 buttons on a eight button controller when configuring it.

I like the 4 buttons because I can feel my way around the 4 buttons easier. So yes perhaps I would need a custom job. Know anybody? :)

Don't forget about Evil Zone. IIRC 2 buttons, maybe there are some unimportant ones too.

You could just skip the mediums or hards and remap. I think you can remap, right?

I don't think I've ever found any use in going between soft, medium and hard attacks, usually I either want to deck someone or I want to jab them, and just go between hard and mediums depending on the character I'm fighting

You need medium for a lot of combos.

That special doesn't even need medium haha. I think LP LP Forward LK HP

But i meant to connect alot of the combos, you need medium. I like to remap the medium buttons to the shoulder buttons when using 4 button.

It does! LP LP F LK MP. Pretty sure it's medium.

Or maybe that's why I couldn't do it when I was trying. Or maybe I had originally mapped HP/K to X/B

Arts hobbies has very custom and easy to understand template for just the case. Just add buttons and joystick.

Anyone have a cool Capcom(or something equally appealing) themed Arcade stick for less than $100?

$50 would be the sweet spot. And willing to trade is a huge plus(or take Lunar bucks, I'm not buying anything for all of February)

Will most likely get to start Neutopia this weekend. This week has been rough since we are rearranging all the furniture and making the kids area larger.

While I have the NEC PC Engine Duo-R out, I will probably get to a few more games like this awesome but bootleg Rondo of Blood and finally play this $150 copy of Dragon Slayer.

Why did Yamatoku switch back to BIN when I won an auction? Do they ban you if you don't pay your invoice? It's been 15 days and hasn't been cancelled but I'm not paying $14 to ship one game.

Do you think the Japanese Post Office has legitimately raised their international rates to a near-obscene level or is this just the old tried 'n' true method of the eBay seller looking to squeeze a few extra bills on the back end like a dog?

But then they're stuck with a bunch of translucent Super NTs.

The fact that those sold out first during the initial preorder (and they STILL haven't updated their pictures, mind you, so they're still advertising something the customer won't be getting!) should explain how powerfully those pics advertised that model. Even the black looks better, but honestly the stickers they put on the controllers to match the systems seem pretty dicked in general.

If I were getting one, I'd stick to SFC or SNES, honestly. But you should throw all four out and save $150. Get a SNES, or an SNES Classic. It's not FPGA, but it's also not grossly overpriced.

Untracked you can still ship a single game out of Japan for like $3. Some super lightweight method, I've used it before for single cheap games from sellers that charge exact shipping. Yamatoku used to ship untracked (SAL I think) but they had a lot of scammers out there that said packages never arrived. So now everything has to be sent registered air, which even when I started heavily importing was about $9 for a single game. Over the course of 12 or so years an increase to around $14 isn't too surprising, though they might be rounding up a little, I'd have to ask one of the facebook sellers.

I read on some forums they do shill bidding (can't confirm) but I wouldn't be surprised if they made money off of shipping. Their feedback has people complaining about being banned for complaining about it.

One guy confirmed it a couple or so years back. So I don't think anyone checked super recently but tigers, stripes etc...

Somehow I didn't manage to beat the game I championed, was too distracted. But I fully plan on going through BOTH Neutopia and at least getting a good start on LTTP.

With eBay ditching Paypal I'm likely about to start a buyer account. As a seller I don't get any of the good promos anyways.

I didn't realize ebay accounts were different now? maybe that's why I never see the ebay bucks thing.

Sign up to all their promotional emails. That's what did it for me. They won't offer you the promos on the website if you don't get it in your email.

Feh! Those eBay Bucks are small potatoes. What's the best incentive they've ever done on those: a measly ten percent of your total purchase? The real deal are those eBay Flash Sales where you get fifteen bucks off a seventy-five dollar purchase. That's a twenty percent discount right there! Boom!! grin

Those are fine too, but I'll take ten percent cash back. Can be way better than $15 off $75+ depending on the purchase.

And I usually have a very difficult time finding $75+ worth of stuff to justify making a purchase to save $15. I've skipped the last 2-3 of them I think. Big purchases though, easy.
