Let's Play Together! Game of the Month Every month, RTT gets together and brainstorms two choices to vote as the Let's Play Together! Game of the Month. Upon completion of the GotM, you will be rewarded with an Achievement Icon! Let's play some awesome games together!
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 . 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.

Retro Posters/Ads/Brochures - I love looking through these.
I should have bought that 4K set that @Lunar linked to earlier. Looks like my living room tv is finally about to kick the bucket. It's always had issues tbh and I should have doged about it right away when I got it.

There will def be others. But yea, very happy with this set. Works really well with the other electronics, i went from a million remotes(ok, maybe like 5) to just 2. 1 for DVDO and the smart remote came with the TV that controls everything else
@Lunar Yeah I'll have to have my eyes peeled. Actually needs to be a tv for this spot and not a monitor. FOOTBALL WATCHIN' DEVICE. And actually I really want it to be 1080p and not 4k because I don't want to get a 4k scaler yet.
I have nothing I want to buy. Had I known this, I might have gone GTX 1060 instead of GTX 980, but whatever. Long as it performs, it's whatever. Supposedly the 980's a bit better than the 1060 anyways, just a bit older, sucks a bit more power.
For anyone serious about trying to beat Galactic Attack this month I would start soon. I doubt any of us in the thread are good enough to beat it on the first run. I sure as hell wasn't. You get an extra life at 500k points. This is something to take advantage of early. Stage 5, 7 and 8 bosses are all real butt-holes.
When I heard Galactic Attack was the game I was admittedly intimidated about if I could actually beat it or not. I've tried a bunch of times, I love the game, but danm it's challenging! I've never 1CC'd a shooter, and don't care to here, but if I can see credits roll I'll be happy. If I am not making progress I'll use a PAR code to practice levels that are too difficult on playthroughs.
Built in code for extra credits before starting the game:
8 Credits To start the game with 8 credits instead of the usual 4, on the title screen hold L+R+Left+C on the control pad, and press start.
GAME SHARK / PRO ACTION REPLAY CODES:
The following dongle-dependent codes are designed for use with the North American (NTSC) version of the game:
Master Code (Must Be On) F6000914 C305 B6002800 0000 Invincibility (player 1) 160EAC90 7F9F Invincibility (player 2) 160EAC90 7F9F Unlimited Lives (player 1) 160EAC30 0003 Unlimited Lives (player 2) 160EAC30 0003 Level 9 Weapon (player 1) 160EAC32 0800 Level 9 Weapon (player 2) 160EAD32 0800 Extra Menu Options (see instructions below) 360DC1DF 7FA1 The following are designed for use with the European & Australian (PAL) versions of the game:
Master Code (Must Be On) F6000914 C305 B6002800 0000 Extra Menu Options (see instructions below) 360DC1DF 7FA1 Extra menu options:
Once performed, enter the options screen to use the following additional selections: Muteki (enable to get more options when the game is paused), Muteki Off (disable invincibility), Muteki On (invincibility; press A + B + C for suicide), Quit (remove the Muteki options); Level Select (choose from any of the seven game levels).
Vote on which one you want to advance in each head to head. I'll tabulate the votes and then we move to the next round. Probably best to do one round a day for voting as there are other "regions" to do as well.
Thanks again @tonymack21. Fired up Mankind Divided and got all tingly again. I loved Human Revolution years ago and have been waiting to pick MD up on steam. For me the only way to play is pc. I owe ya one!
Don't even know if my vote should count because I've only played two games on the list and I'm not even going to vote for either one of them lol. I'm just going to vote for the games I would have loved to play had I grown up with an NES.
16. Faxanadu 9. Dragon Warrior III 4. Metroid 12. Zelda II 3. Legend of Zelda 11. Final Fantasy 10. Ninja Gaiden 2. Contra
RetroUSB just updated the AVS with horizontal interpolation, so that's neat. The original Nt used to have this, but the feature was removed for space reasons and the Nt Mini doesn't have it either. It might be the only technical feature the AVS has the the Nts don't
Next person to trade with me or buy something from me and wants it gets a free City Hunter 357 Magnum DVD. Disc isn't in the best shape and I had some audio issues on the previews so the seller refunded me and told me to keep it. I have a sealed copy on the way now so I no longer need it. I would also just send it to someone for shipping cost.
