#4207684 Do you wear video game themed or inspired clothes?

Posted by ClassicGMR on Mon Jan 28, 2019 9:59 AM

I have 2-3 different Pac-Man shirts. I recently got a Burgertime/Deadpool crossover shirt I love (Taco Time!). My wife has a Galaga "For a good time insert coin" shirt she has worn out.

#4207590 Sony Playstation Classic + Retroarch ?

Posted by ClassicGMR on Mon Jan 28, 2019 6:57 AM

Wow... that's all I have to say.

 

The BleemSync/Playstation "side" of the system is fabulous. I love having all my PS1 games in order and accessible in the carousel. Love it. My carousel has 42 games as of right now - 20 pre-loaded and 22 I added. No issues.

 

As an aside I found a great little tool that simplifies the BIN/CUE problem I was experiencing due to having multiple BIN files for PS1 games. It's no longer being developed but it works great and is extremely simple to use. Check out the CDMage portion of this post if you need a tool to reformat your Tomb Raider or Space Hulk game. ;)

 

I played with RetroArch the last few days. I have gotten random crashes here and there (RetroArch menu glitched badly when i exited NES - 1942. System crashed when I exited NES - Super Mario Bros. It locked up when I opened 2600 - Adventure) but nothing repeatable. It just happens randomly and rarely. Still a WIP so I can live with it. I am used to using front ends like GameEx or EmulationStation so using RetroArch is a fairly new thing for me. I found this video that really helped me make it look better.

 

I downloaded all the thumbnail packs for the systems I installed, downloaded the databases and then scanned the directories for playlist creation(that was an overnight task). Now I have all the systems and box art for the games I installed. This thing is really taking shape and I love using it! Got my powered USB hub connected so I can use both controllers that came with the system. The only thing I haven't done yet is try different controllers. I have an XBox 360 wired controller somewhere I just have to find it. :)

 

VERY happy overall. And it should just get better since this is still a beta setup.

Thank you Grig for another successful AtariAge Secret Santa Exchange! I look forward to this every year now and have already picked up the wrapping paper for next year's event! (Can't beat 90% off clearance. :) )

By the way - Just my 2 cents but if anyone is interested in doing it next year and worried they'll miss the announcement (this has been mentioned a few times) then FOLLOW this topic!  Even if it's April and you just found this click the FOLLOW at the top. You'll see the notification for the 2019 SS if/when it's announced. :)

Holy WOW!!! Best Christmas gift I have received in the past 40 years!

Thank you sooo much Santa and Mrs. Santa.

My 4 year old grandson is visiting and he was so excited by the raspberry pi that he was jumping up and down and shouting. When Grandma scolded us for being too noisy with Grandpa's game and my grandson replied, "it's OUR game". So, I guess I have a partner now. :)

Bless you for the gift and the joy it brings us.

Merry Christmas all.

 

Well Dawn and I were extremely happy to read this when you opened it. :-D Merry Christmas again!

Sweet! Very nice card thank you. :)

 

We're a huge gaming family so new games for Game Night is awesome! Super Mario keychain for my car keys! Yes! The Gameboy lanyard will look good on the wall with the other collectibles. 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 

 

Thank you very much Secret Santa! This has made my day! :D

I never once got to wear it. My wife took it for her own. Still an awesome shirt but I am jealous! :)
