#4278015 Windows 10 PC Stick for Emulation?

Posted by ClassicGMR on Sun May 19, 2019 5:22 PM

 

For Windows 10 you can go into the Network settings and turn on Metered Connection which blocks all updates until you choose to get the updates yourself.

 

Of course this also affects Window Defender and you won't get needed security patches that are needed.

 

If all you want it for is emulation you can turn off the network after you get it set the way you want and it can stay static. I haven't updated one of my RetroPie setups since I got it the way I wanted it. I turned off the network and I just use it as is. If something happens I can just re-image the backup ISO.

Make sure any stick you consider buying you read the reviews thoroughly on them. I have heard and read that a lot of them overheat just doing basic work like browsing.

Ooh I really would like one of these cases. Can't justify the purchase since I have a modded PSP and a PS Vita but this looks REALLY nice.

I also use 8bitdo controllers but if Im building for someone else or a gift for someone those parts are what I would use.

My Pi setup cost a lot because of all the things I wanted. Like the controllers, Super Kuma 9000 case, better power supply. All that adds up.

Get them running and if they like it they can upgrade. :)

heres a set with decent reviews. I didnt think of analogs but I might change my build to these also. (If I were doing one of course)

I would echo that 3B+ recommendation. This is a well priced kit that would get you running out of the box.

 

If I were going to build one this week I would go with:
Raspberry Pi 3B+ $38.00

Generic Case $6.00

2 wired USB controllers $11.00

5V/3A Power Supply $6.00

Sandisk Ultra Micro SD card 128GB $20.00

HDMI Cable $1.50

 

For $82.50 with free shipping you can build your own kit MUCH better than the $79.99 "pre-built" kits offered there. More storage, better controllers and better power supply.

Not a game, but picked up a Chinese "reissue" off of ebay.attachicon.gif20190314_180124.jpg

 

I bought 3 of these a few years ago. Got the red, white and black versions from China. They were $30 each at the time. Didn't care they were knockoffs it beat paying someone $1000 for an original. (I wish I had also grabbed the clear one. It's over $70 now.)

I got a pretty awesome package in the mail from Play-Asia today, and with this I've now got my Nintendo Switch set up just the way I want for both home and portable play! :D

 

I love the D-pad! Wish I had seen that sooner!

I gave myself $200 out of the tax return this year to spend a little. Here's the last of it:

The GBros. Adapter works brilliantly with my wife's MadCatz Tatsunoko vs Capcom Wii arcade stick and they really nailed the original Game Boy style with the SN30 Pro Controller. The controller color is perfect and the D-pad & buttons feel just like the Game Boy ones! :D

 

I didn't know this was a thing! I know where $20 of my next paycheck are disappearing to. :evil:

I don't have a dog in this fight but after reading through the last few pages then looking at the OP's profile I thought this was funny...

#4223292 Othello

Posted by ClassicGMR on Tue Feb 19, 2019 7:58 PM

I have always loved Othello/Reversi. It has the elegance of being easy to learn but the strategy, planning ahead and anticipating your opponent's moves makes it a hard game to master.

 And - oh my God - A SKYRIM WATCH! Two favorite things - TES: Skyrim and time pieces. I collect clocks and certain watches and this definitely goes with it!  :-o  :-o

 

That Skyrim pocket watch on the left there keeps trying to walk out my door. My son's mother is a bigger Skyrim fan than I am and every time she comes over she threatens to snatch it like... well... a KHAJIIT SNEAK THIEF! Just wanted to say that - even tough the shine's off the holiday season I - and my family - still love the gifts. :)
