Removing Yellow on XE/XEGS

Tue Jun 13, 2017 2:24 PM

Just acquired a XEGS. The color isn't too bad, but the buttons have yellowing on the edges, and the console has yellowing on the edges, sides, and bottom.

 

I know that the 40% hydrogen peroxide cream works well on restoring SNES's back to their white, but will it work with restoring the XEGS back to the gray? Essentially, I'd be bleaching the plastic, so I'm concerned about making the XEGS too bright or white compared to the original color.

 

Also, would it work on restoring the original color of the buttons?

 


Is there video footage of the video game world championships from the 80s?

Sun Jun 4, 2017 11:37 AM

Was wanting to find videos of different video game world championships from the 80s for a video project.

 

I've found one for Cosmos: https://www.youtube....3ctKcI8Kg&t=75s

 

I also found the Millipede championships, but someone named Patrick Scott Patterson watermarked it, so it'd be great if there was an unedited version of that somewhere: https://www.youtube....eIdfaDBjDg&t=3s

 

I'd love to find footage from the 81 Atari Championships, Space Invaders Championship, and the Centipede Championship.

 

I believe there were some others for Tron, Pac-Man, Tempest, and Armor Attack.

 

Anybody else know if and where such footage would exist?

Is the Donkey Kong PK 7800 cart still being sold? Would love to get my hands on one.


Getting PS2 uLaunchElf to recognize PS1 memory card

Sat Apr 22, 2017 9:29 AM

Have a question. I just got a mem card with Free Mcboot 1.953. However I'm having trouble getting it to recognize my official ps1 memory card. I want to transfer a game save from USB to the ps1 card, but when I open ulaunchelf it shows no files in the card and won't let me paste to the ps1 card. The ps2 recognizes the current saves I have on there in the Browser, but ulaunchelf does not. How can I get the ps1 save to the ps1 mem card?

 

Otherwise, the Free Mcboot works great except for this one issue.


Easily mod/rewire SNES controller?

Wed Dec 14, 2016 12:40 AM

Is there a way to mod an SNES controller without soldering?

I'd like to change the Select button to the R shoulder button to use for Gameboy games.

If there isn't an easy way, are there any for sale?
