  1. I checked my 3 Game Gears and none have the notches. I did notice that there was quite a bit of wear on the side of the D-pads from use over the decades. Perhaps this notch mod was to relieve some of that friction and wear?
  2. Imagine how cool it would be to have a "modern" A8 like those C= and Sinclair projects. I would happily buy a modern A8 that didn't require assembly. I can't do decent soldering anymore so kits are a no go for me.
  3. I've got a RPi 3B running Lakka. I find it to be a more reliable solution than RetroPie. I haven't used Batocera. The Lakka RPi 3B is one of my secondary emulation rigs, setup in the bedroom with wireless 360 controllers. My latest primary emulation machine is a Lenovo Thinkcentre M93P with a Core i5, 8GB, and a SSD. I bought this reconditioned from Amazon a few months ago for $148. It blows away the RPi and runs pretty much everything. I considered a RPi 4 but the RPi solutions have gotten a lot more expensive than they used to be. Long story short, when I priced the RPi 4 solution with power supply, fan, SSD adapter caddy, and a decent case it was more expensive than the Core i5 Lenovo M93P. The Lenovo came with Windows 10. I could have installed Lakka but Windows runs RetroArch and almost every other emulator and front end ever made. I figured there was no point restricting myself to Lakka when I can have it all.
  4. The backlight would be so awesome, even more if that idea of using the contrast knob as the backlight brightness works out.. As a kid I used to struggle to play the Microvision in low light conditions. If we have to choose one or the other, I vote backlight. Originally I needed 3 screens, now it's 4.
  5. That's a nice looking controller. Good work 👍
  6. I also have a GDEMU clone I bought a few years ago. It wasn't difficult to install. I loaded up a single SD with my favorite commercial and homebrew titles and haven't looked back. I'd recommend this upgrade to anyone.
  7. I'm interested in the idea but won't commit until seeing a product and price.
  8. It's good that the Saturn is getting some love. It's a great system.
  9. I like it. At first I didn't like the 2600 Pac-Man sounds but after playing a while I think they work and make sense for the game.
  10. That controller looks great. I'd be interested in the tutorial as well.
  11. I love this mod. I never thought an arcade stick would fit. Have your scores improved with the new control?
  12. No. Your archive is a valuable resource. Please don't give up.
  13. ^ Thanks for the info. I also read up on the power supply mods. Right now I've got a S-Video to HDMI upscaler that I'm using for most of my classic systems. I understand the potential awesomeness of the DCHDMI, but I'm not sure how high it is on my want list
