  1. I saw a post on retrorgb that there are cases now for the OSSC to make it look a little nicer. Wonder if it is worth getting one; not sure if it adds any weight to make it more stable because you are right... I've had one find itself in strange positions when I've had stuff plugged into it.
  2. I've been putting off joining this club since some other expenses always come up, but I should stop procrastinating come payday this Friday.
  3. I have been meaning to do this myself as I have both, but 50 million other things keep cropping up and my focus on getting back into better physical shape takes up a lot of my spare time (but well worth it). One thing I do like about the FM is that while one has to do some adjustment, it works more out of the box. The OSSC may need more fiddling, but it can depend on your TV. If I recall, I didn't have to do too much with the PSX. Either one of these solutions seems fine, but I did not do a through comparison. I could have tested the resolution switching with Chrono Cross, but you will get to it sooner than I will. As for daisy chaining these devices, I've sometimes attached the OSSC to my FM. I've gotten 4x line double to work with my Elgato HD60 which normally craps out at 2x or 3x. I had a TV where only 2x worked, but I could go up to 5x if I sent the signal through the FM first. You can accomplish the same thing with the HDMI in and out on an Xbox One. I also used to use the FM HDMI to scale up the image from my HDMI modded GameCube on my older TV. It really looked great; I felt that F-Zero GX could almost pass for an early PS3 game at a glance. I don't do this anymore though since my Bravia upscales the image very nicely from the GameCube. Ahh... that explains why I have always thought the OSSC output from my TG16 always looked a bit too wide. I just saw your post above about chaining the OSSC and FM together. Next time I have my TG16 out, I'll see how it goes, though the slightly wide look doesn't bug me too much.
  4. I have wondered if even some enhanced port of Sonic CD would have help at launch (better colors, more features, etc). It might have helped Sonic CD reach a wider audience. I think the Saturn would have still struggled in NA regardless, but that (any kind of Sonic game) may have been one step to help it last longer.
  5. Actually, they started making that (Neo geo) adapter again. I will probably never own a Neo Geo system, but sometimes I get the urge to get this adapter anyway. You never know...
  6. The Saturn version of Sonic 3D blast has some cool sound tracks. It badly needs a save feature though. I believe the PC version does.
  7. Thanks for posting this. I haven't used my framemeister in awhile and was never able to get the PS2 to look the way I wanted it to. That's useful information for the SNES and Genesis too. I may try puttering around this coming weekend, though the OSSC has worked well for my Genesis. I wonder if anything can be done to improve the picture from the TG16/PCE. The colors are crushed, sometimes there is noise (beyond the jail bars that I need to fix someday), and things are not quite right with the aspect ratio. I use the OSSC for the TG16 which gives a much better picture and and the colors are great. The sound is better with the FM though; the audio noise when accessing the SD card with the SSDS3 isn't as noticeable.
  8. Can't see how this was going to turn out any other way.
  9. Does it supply sufficient power to use an external SSD without a power source. This console has so many damn wires as it is. I've just been using a flash drive and all I had on there were the extra downloads to make XenoBlade X load faster. Now that I have modded the thing however... Speaking of which, has anyone figured out how to use the Pro controller with the Homebrew Lanuncher (this is the one for the Wii U side). The HBL only seems to take inputs from the gamepad. I'd like to use Retroarch with the Pro controller too, but it assigns the Gamepad as #1 and a Pro controller as #2. Google searches have not turned up firm answers. Most hits talk about how to get the Pro controller to work with the PC or a RetroPie.
  10. To make any kind of money, the may have needed to cut out the middleman. I hope the people that paid for one, get what they want, but it is also possible the best case scenario is that people get refunds and all that is out there is are the beta units in the hands of reviewers.
  11. Well, once people on Reddit are tired of the fun and games by propping up the stocks of shambling corpse of a company, the value will go way back down. If I had any, I'd sell it. Use to be several Gamestops near us, including 2 within a 10 min drive on the opposite ends of town. Now the nearest one can be >45 min away depending on traffic.
  12. Seems like one can cancel their Walmart order and order through Polymega's site with a coupon code to knock off that extra $50. https://www.retrorgb.com/cancel-your-polymega-walmart-orders.html
  13. Didn't someone find a way to do with the last one, or I am getting it confused with the Retrofreak? My last experience with a Retro 5 was my last experience with a Hyperkin product. Others have had more luck than me I guess. The way I feel about these consoles... they are kind of neat when you are first getting back into playing older games. If you are more of a casual player with these games or only play some games where lag isn't an issue, then it is fine for some. For others, the neatness starts to wear off when you realize things are not what you remembered. My Retrofreak is pretty much a paper weight...
  14. Interesting idea. I didn't know such things existed until your post. While one can say never, I don't see this likely with the micro SD cards (though there are adapters with it). I'd like to manage my everdrives and terra onion products remotely.
  15. After seeing Bob's video, I am not sure why they went the route that they did when they could have done things correctly. The shell isn't too bad. People might interested in the shell if their N64 is banged up. Maybe this is one of those few times where just the shell is good enough (as always... more than half the battle).
