  1. Sold off my collection a couple of years ago while the hardware was still in working condition. Bought a Raspberry Pi to play all the old games. I would be interested in buying ROMs if they were available but at the same time I'm not going to miss what I haven't got. $10 tops for me.
  2. May 22, 2000. I was a member of half.com and eBay bought it and that's when my account was created. That's why I have "-half" in my username.
  3. Couldn't you use SFTP and Filezilla? That's what I do.
  4. I think any game that provides a distraction to the anxiety would be on the list. Ghosts N Goblins is too difficult for me.
  5. Stopped collecting years ago once I got the Harmony cart. Now I've moved on from console hardware to Retropie. I still play occasionally, but not as much as I used to. I'm more into playing pinball now than video games.
  6. Didn't realize he got banned. I ran the arcade/mame HSC when he put up a crazy score on Reactor and claimed it was his second attempt ever playing the game. It was like 92K. Nobody puts up a score like that not knowing anything about the game. Especially Reactor.
  7. Announced yesterday. They can't stay afloat because of the pandemic. They're selling everything (pinball machines, arcade games, consoles and other assets). It was fun while it lasted. https://replayfoundation.org/2020-announcement/
  8. I bought a Canakit off of Amazon. I would recommend getting a large SD card though - someone told me all I needed was 32-GB and then when I started adding PS1 games I had to buy a larger card and copy everything over. I already had Xbox 360 controllers, so all I needed to add was the receiver for them. When all was said and done, I have like over 10,000 games for under $200. https://www.amazon.com/CanaKit-Raspberry-8GB-Extreme-Kit/dp/B08B6F1FV5/ref=sr_1_4?crid=3BW4BTUX6JMGY&dchild=1&keywords=canakit+raspberry+pi+4&qid=1605800445&sprefix=canakit%2Caps%2C186&sr=8-4
  9. I still enjoy playing the 2600 version of Ms. Pac on my Retropie.
  10. Have you thought of maybe checking out other discussion forums like Reddit or the MISC forum on BodyBuilding.com?
  11. I remember his appearance in BBS the Documentary
  12. I was an arcade rat of the 70s and early 80s. For me it's when the ColecoVision came out that I said I would rather stay at home and play rather than go to the arcade.
  13. Check out the video and the comments are interesting.
  14. Do you think you could just have one thread in the Gaming Publications and Web Sites forum where you can discuss your channel? Getting tired of seeing threads about your channel on a daily basis in different threads - it's getting spammy.
  15. Get a Canakit from Amazon Get an Xbox 360 controller and receiver where you can use both thumbsticks for Robot Ron. Install RetroPie. Download MAME ROMs from Archive.org Don't forget to give me thanks.
  16. Five year old thread. I don't even watch Twitch anymore because it's no longer supported on Roku.
  17. Has anyone gotten this to work on Raspberry Pi with an Xbox controller? Just looking for a ready made coolcv_mapping.txt file but I can't find one uploaded anywhere. Are there instructions anywhere on how to edit this file?
  18. If you're a sports fan, many of the leagues are posting full game replays on YouTube.

  19. Spent much of the past weekend watching concerts in my YouTube playlist. Signed up for NFL Game Pass so I'm watching condensed games from the Eagles 2017 Super Bowl season. Watched Charles Bronson's Death Wise V that I recorded a year ago. I liked how he fixed the bad guy's dandruff problem. When I'm bored watching TV, I txt a friend of mine and we take turns picking a video game to play and then we txt each other our scores. We started doing that Friday night. So far we've played Frostbite and BurgerTime on the 2600 and Pooyan on the NES.
