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

I don't think it's idiotic if you want what the NT does. It would be nice to just have one box handle everything natively, but the NT's definitely out of my range if I can get a pretty-good-but-not-as-good solution for less.

My OG Nt has problems running a couple random games (King of the Ring and Family Feud glitch out with text in a similar way, even run off a flash cart). I actually switched to the AVS for my primary NES even though I like the hi-def NES features more. Maybe I need to update it.

It was a mix of games and movies. 1 Blu-ray, DVDs, Until Dawn PS4, Mind Zero for Vita (substituted because he didn't want the Xbox One title), a blue gameboy pocket with matching blue camera, about 6 GB original games, Xbox 360 power supply unit, and more. $45 (included flat rate priority box).

Analogue Nt mini

As most of you know by now, I designed the PCB and wrote the software in the Analogue Nt mini. This is an FPGA NES/Famicom with HDMI and RGB/composite/s-video/component out. I have since released "jailbroken" firmware that allows you to run ALL of my FPGA cores to date. These are mostly 8-bit cores right now but it is possible I can do some light 16 bit cores in the future.

It currently supports the following:

NES/Famicom
Sega Master System
Game Gear
Colecovision
Gameboy
Gameboy Color
Atari 2600
Atari 7800
Supervision
Gamate
Game King
Channel F
Arcadia 2001
Creativision
Adventure Vision
Videobrain
Odyssey^2
RCA Studio 2

The following are in the process of being ported:

Intellivision
SPC Player

Unfortunately the mandelbrot zoomer cannot be ported due to a lack of multipliers.

@Gypsy The OSSC is on my workbench now waiting to have the Digital Audio upgrade added in. I'll probably hang onto it for now, although I've been pondering dumping my UltraHDMI NES. It's just hard to part with stuff, even if I have 3 ways to do the same thing, lol.

I play about half of those systems on my NT Mini, via ROMs of course. Every game I've tested works great and has no issues although I've nowhere near tried everything. It is nice to just fire it up for a quick round on some Game Gear games, they look gorgeous btw. The Gameboy stuff is pretty sweet too but I'm only doing those until my HDMI mod for the Cube arrives...if the dude ever finishes stalling on the development of the stupid thing.

Also there was talk of cartridge converters for all those systems as well but that may have been for his own FPGA console, the Zimba3k. I haven't followed the news much on this lately.

Man, I'm looking at The Cutting Room Floor and they really hate WD. Maybe if Popful Mails enemies weren't buffed 2-3x and healing item prices jacked through the roof, the game wouldn't be as much of a save/loadfest.

It'd have to be screen shots but the guy didn't totally lose it (yet anyway, maybe he was waiting for my counter to do so). I bought it at a junk store type thing (guess I can't really go back there now) and I can't link to the offers. Before I figured it out I had sent them a counter which I could not retract so I actually had to end and relist the item.

@DefaultGen Ha. And I mean it's not like I haggled, I paid the full asking price.

That IS funny actually! But if the guy didn't really wanna sell it just pawn it until you can buy it back. Usually if you sell someone something it's kinda theirs to keep yes?

Production grade VCRs. 80something. The picture quality on it is fantastic, pretty much gated by the tape you put in of course, but I just can't deal with mono sound. One of them even has an EIAJ 8-pin connector so you know it means business.

Yeah I noticed that too it's so weird. But I would prefer it og Xbox. Speaking of which they have Japanese copies of fatal frame Zero and fatal frame 2 for way higher on Xbox than the American fatal frames. Fatal frame Zero is a collectors edition though. Does anyone know what's better or different for these Japanese versions on Xbox?

Just means the company agreed to another reprint/shipment if necessary, which is super cool. They can't list it as a primary choice when it's out of stock, that's generally how they handle temporary OOS items. They pick whoever pays them more to feature on the front page and hide their listing in the new/used listings.

Been in Phoenix on business this week and have been going back and forth with a seller on a nice 3DO lot. We talked 3 months ago and were too far apart on price. I finally told him that I was done negotiating. We settled on $140 for his boxed FZ-1 (the $699 release, which is the hardest to find in box), a boxed Panasonic controller, 2 loose controllers, Samurai Showdown (complete), Need for Speed (complete), Slam & Jam (compete), Slammin (complete) and two loose demos (one contains the data manager for the FZ-1) and Madden, disc only. Not a bad haul

Can you post the listings you're talking about? The Xbox versions iirc have slightly better graphics and extra costumes (bikinis) but I can't remember if they were censored on Xbox. I don't think they were maybe just Nintendo censored those.

$19 in 08 for me. I'd like to get a copy in better condition though. Pretty sure my map is in ~fair condition. Waiting for a cheapish copy to be listed.

The guide alone is now worth more than what you guys paid during the recession.

In my fantasy world Vay is a $25 game tops. Ideally like $10 if we are comparing to more modern systems. I get that at this point it's more about its collectible value and not value as a game, which is kinda sad.

I havent played through the whole game, maybe that's why i don't hate it? The intro sequece is really cool. I never played for more than a couple hours. And that was on my iPhone 4 lol

@Lunar Hate is probably a strong word, though certainly I hate that it's $100+ with the map in vg condition. For the game itself it's like...a general apathy. It's a by the numbers played straight boring JRPG, even with WD adding in their own little touches. I could tell the game creators didn't even really care about the game, so it's hard for me to care either. Actually I recall Vic saying it was a foot in the door/relationship builder release but I don't recall what all it led to.

I would say its $75-80 with map in vg. But guide adds another $25-30.

I think its a fine game on its own(from the amount of time i played), this game falls into the Beyond the Beyond category for me. It isn't polished like Lunar/Wild Arms but its still a decent game, probably alot worse in retrospect.

Oh I didn't see you were including the guide. That's a much better deal, I should have known better though. ^_^

Actually, that's a pretty solid thought on it. It's just...super average/generic. Exactly like Beyond the Beyond in that respect lol. It's hard to remember anything about it years after playing it. Compare to Lunar where I remember ALL the main characters.

@tonymack21 You play Summon Night 5 yet?

It's loaded on the Vita for when I do...my backlog is infinite lol. I want to..I've heard it's pretty good, maybe even better than the new one.

I'm still wondering what happened here. My best guess is the buyer of the 30 didn't want the add-on card and bought the 30 for a bit less.

But man, value on these has pretty much entrenched. I paid $311 for a 30 w/ card in early 2013 (humorously I paid way less for my 50pro recently). I felt kinda meh at the time but justified it because I knew I'd be watching a lot of movies with it too, and it was really good for that. I put a crap ton of hours on it before I got my 50pro. Enough to wear out the power supply, lol. But I guess it wasn't even a bad deal.

I've intentionally held off on a few eBay purchases totalling approximately USD $75.00 in the hopes that another flash sale would be imminent. But, alas, my online shopping cart still runneth over. Does anyone have an educated guess on when the next eBay flash sale will be?

They've reliably started in the afternoon between the 20th and 26th for the past year. There were two for some reason in June so I suspect that's why they skipped July.

I got the NES Oddities book from Kickstarter and it seems pretty good. It's no Ultimate NES, but it's a cool reference of things like homebrew (even LEs and digital-only), English-playable Famicom and FDS games, PAL exclusives, etc. If nothing else, it's probably the most comprehensive list of playable NES games that aren't the 677 US licensed ones up through 2017.

And fatal frame 2 the American version is starting at 16.99 meaning the Japanese version starts at 10 times the price on Amazon like seriously? It's usually the other way around for Japanese imports at least on every other system.

Also those girls are supposed to be young teens in this game why on earth would they need to be in bikinis to fight murderous ghosts? Not that I'm condoning any 18 plus women "needing" to be scantily clad for an already mature violent horror game but c'mon these girls might even be preteen which makes this beyond normal Japanese pervy and I know it's just a game but that's kinda gross.

Don't get me wrong I love fatal frame 2 but I'm just not seeing bikinis being relevant to this story. Man now I wanna hook up my xbox and play it 😞 It's such a creepy scary game!!! 😍

That looks really cool, it's unfortunate I just linked to an Amazon listing with none available 😞 That would have been a really cool book to read through.

Does this book make any mention of the Friday the 13th (clone game essentially with Freddy as your protagonist) Freddy vs Jason game?

I loved the original Friday the 13th and was seriously considering a brand new copy of this one from Amazon. Like I know it's gimmicky as hell but I like stuff that most people don't so I figure it's worth the 50 bucks for a totally weird game, but if it's terrible I would also want a heads up on that too.

Ugh! Of course it would be 😞 I like to pretend I have open mind about other cultures but I think a 13 year old girl with a grown ass man is pretty much wrong wherever it happens.

I guess it's not as disgusting as what some Papua New Guinea tribes have their boys do to become men.

If you don't know, you don't wanna know, do NOT look it up.

I literally got the book from Kickstarter yesterday and they had a pallet of them at a recent show I was at. I'm sure he's doing whatever he can to allow more people to give him $$$, he's just getting ramped up.

Not sure about the Freddy vs. Jason hack, but I don't think pirates, hacks, or translations are covered because there's so much bullcrap out there.

Just in case anyone was wondering what Freddy vs Jason game I was talking about its this:

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

And maybe I'm an idiot or whatever but that just looks so effin cool!!! Idk why I thought it came with an instruction book but I guess I can live without one. But how cool would it be if it had a custom dust sleeve that was like the Nintendo red logo but instead on Nintendo it said Freddy on one side and Jason on the other?!?

That would be the highlight of my week at this point lol.
