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

Oh no, it was much much worse back in the day. Prices now are great unless you're in Japan, now you can get 24 episodes for like, $20-30. All 3 original Slayers series only set me back $45 at Fry's, in the early days you couldn't even buy the Hong Kong ripoffs that cheap.

All this talk about CD-I and I missed it. If anyone is interested in the first to Zelda games on CD-I European versions I have complete copies. I'd let them go for well below what they go for (which isn't that much anyways).

Also a question .... I bought a backlit GBA on eBay and the system bounced around a little too much during shipping and the clear plastic (that goes ontop of the actual screen) came off. I'm also noticing that when pressing down near the screen will make a the screen go dark in certain area of the screen. I'm communicating with the seller but he isn't offering much help. I'm hoping sticking down the screen will resolve the screen issue. What adhesive do I use to stick this back down? Below is a picture:

image

Edit: The other issue is of course there's now a ton of dust. Any technique I can use to make sure all dust is out besides just using canned air (and any specific canned air for spraying directly on a screen)?

My main concern right now is if this will fix the issue with the screen going dark when pressing around the screen (including the B and Start buttons).

Edit #2: Looks like my best option might be to just buy a replacement plastic front piece since it will come with the adhesive but the question remains will this fix the issue with the dark screen when pressing on the B and Start button (and around the casing)? I'm guessing not. Maybe this is a known issue with this mod??? Hoping someone who knows GBA can help!

Prices are gangsta af now. I have that Slayers set too, I grabbed it off Amazon when it was all the way down to $20.99. Makes up for buying Lupin movies at $18 a piece I guess.

In the seller's defense, he wasn't claiming to have done the mod. He bought it modded and is now reselling it (I'm assuming well after the fact).

I bit the bullet when AnimEigo (side note: autocorrect knew to fix the capitalization to what's there??) announced it was OOP, and some volumes were getting low in stock. At $7/volume, I figured it was then or never.

I do, but not because I shopped there. It's pretty much been confirmed their closure is what did CPM in, and left Media Blasters on life support. Those following conventions also can trace part of Big Apple Anime Fest's closure to this, with CPM being their biggest sponsor.

But yes, Slayers. It is one of the 2 series I cite as being my gateway into anime. And when I was a DM, I had an NPC family; the mage's name was Xelloss.

The Irresponsible Captain Tylor. It was a friend who showed me Slayers, and told me where he bought it. I went in and asked for a recommendation, they mentioned this brand new box set, which also appealed to me, since he only had the first 2 tapes of Slayers, and I didn't like being left in the lurch. A whole series for $130? Sure! And I've been a fan since, though my interest has gone like a sine curve in recent years.

Nice. I liked that one a lot too.

One of them anyway, I don't remember which is which anymore but the oav and tv series watch completely differently and I didn't care for one of them.

Tylor wasn't bad, I just wasn't believing all the women would actually go for Tylor. Most of them should have killed him as planned.

The darkness from pressing the buttons is likely due to the frame of the top case pushing down on corners of the actual screen itself. If you put the screen protector back on, hold it on, and test if pressing those buttons causes the screen to still go dark near those areas. If not, then grab some Zots and use that in the corners and edges to stick the cover back on, they will hold very well but also allow you to remove it later if you want.

The screen protector is an easy fix but I'd be more concerned with the pressure pushing those buttons down will do to the screen over time. Adding the protector back on should correct that unless there is a problem inside causing the pressure on the screen.

It sure is DD, although I was stupid enough to buy it the day it came out.

Fudge no, I'm not queer, I'm a straight boy, I buy video cards to play GAMES

Converted $250 in BB gift cards over the holidays, plus I'm planning on getting at least $160 back once I sell my GTX 970, so out of pocket this was damn near free.

Think it's a 600w Bronze, if I'm having stability issues like I was earlier (still not sure if it was the PSU or the mobo) I'll probably upgrade to a 750 Gold. I've changed cases since then, so I'm interested to see if it just works proper.

I'm running an AMD FX 8350, no optical drives, just an SSD and an external USB3, so I honestly should be fine on power draw as is.

Yeah definitely put some money into power supply if you are upgrading, I always go way overkill in that dept. since your whole system is reliant on it. Corsair has never done me wrong.

Cheaping out on the power supply is the dumbest crap ever. I see it a lot on the "gaming computers" listed on CL though...

Yeah I am always ridiculous in that regard, currently rocking a corsair ax1200i, with a single 1070gtx. Overhead for dayzz.

lol, I think this is on the other side of the seesaw for "cheaping out". That's incredibly more than even I'd ever consider getting this rig, and AMD (pre-Ryzen) pulls MORE juice than Intel does. Unless you're OCing/watercooling this was a bit wasteful I think. My system draw as is runs about 412w, and I know for a fact with the specs you've listed you're pulling much, much less.

Combination of I'm watercooling and fell into a deal I could not refuse, paid less than half of retail for this new in box. Also my previous system while still on this psu was an x58 based system with a xeon hex-core heavily oc'ed. I've also got an optical drive, 2 3.5's hdds and 3 ssds. Still overkill yes, but for the price I would have been an idiot to say no.

I'm ignorant about watercooling so you may be where you need to be. I'd imagine it draws a fair chunk of power. And if it was a deal, it was a deal.

800w's about as high as I would go for mine, all fan-cooled, and that's factoring in future CPU upgrades. Going Gold or above versus Bronze is less important to me, I can handle some inefficiencies in the power it's drawing from the wall. Lots of times you'd have to keep the PSU for 3-4 years before you break even/start saving money between the ratings.

Yeah I think you are in the right neighborhood for 750-800 max if you are looking at a new one.

Looks like my local Best Buy has these for days, I'll pick one up if the system's looking unstable.

Pretty sure my current one's EVGA? I'd have to check.

Yep love the modular supplies, so nice for cable management. Evga had some decent and not so decent psus depending on which manufacturer actually produced the guts.

I think I only need one SATA power cable... for the 850 Evo, honestly the only things I need other than that are the mainboard, CPU and... *looks at new card* oh damn, just two 2x2s. I think the 970 uses a couple 2x3s, if not 2x4s. One fan's nice, hopefully the blower stays chill! I don't usually use reference designs so this'll be an experience.

edit: Yeah, the 970's got two 2x3s. And actually I think my internal USB3 controller uses a SATA connector too. So two then. Unfortunately they're nowhere near one another so I'll still need two cables. raspberry

I don't remember the reviews on the reference cooler for those. I think that's part of the reason Nvidia cards were pulling a premium, might be that whole vapor chamber setup. I've got a Gigabyte G1 that hardly ever kicks the fan on unless I am doing something more than rocket league. The oem nvidia cards are sexy beasts for sure.

I'm not at AGDQ, but I'll likely be in MN for SGDQ in July. I'm probably going to PRGE as well since I'm so close.
