Wish I could be on board with real hardware, but I have given it many chances over the years and have had numerous problems, including short life spans of components, and terrible smells from used Ebay finds. It's just not worth the headache to me, so I have stuck with emulation. Which brings its own challenges...
- What used to work on my old XP machine, no longer works in W7/8/10. Incompatibilities with emulators, roms, etc. With every OS or emulator version change, something seems to break.
- I have now gotten irreversibly used to what purists would call "bad" emulation: a sharp picture with no scanlines or dithering. The trend now is to enable these annoyances - uh, I mean features - by default for accuracy's sake, which I personally do not like at all. There's at least one emulator (Applewin) where there is no longer any option to disable such "accuracy." (Technically you can disable it in an older version, but full screen for that version does not work on my machine.)
