  1. Nice! When you get it together please post pics, and what you think of it. I'm curious if Player 1 in GA:TRODA needs to be on the far left side, or if you can use one of the middle controls.
  2. Hrumph. Best Buy just canceled my pre-order for the Intellivision and Bitmap Bros carts, since they didn't know when they were delayed until. And the Evercade FB page keeps running videos of Night Stalker, grrrr. Not a great sign.
  3. Billy Mitchell’s Old Website Now Debunks His Controversial Pac-Man High Scores Perfectpacman.com, Mitchell’s old domain name, is now being used to debunk the Pac-Man and Donkey Kong player’s contentious records https://kotaku.com/billy-mitchell-s-old-website-now-debunks-his-controvers-1847712280
  4. Lol yes, I do love that one, but iirc they are rare now and fetching crazy prices online when sold these days.
  5. The most likely highest quality one is here on Ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/164860922736?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D188d4f0740a742f984777c87edee206f%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D373557848393%26itm%3D164860922736%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A14f97471-1c1b-11ec-8921-0e30ba780d7c|parentrq%3A109d52b417c0aaecf1576899fff141c8|iid%3A1 But it's $60 with shipping. I agree that I don't want to risk my systems with a piece of questionable quality, but I trust Crossbow's opinion on the specs very highly and am happy with what I got for half the cost of the S3. If you're worried though, I'd say spend the $60 and get the S3.
  6. Especially since back in the day there weren't nearly as many large power strips as we have now, much less rated for high levels etc. My solution for many years was a Night Light Display Stand from a shop I used to run. I'll post a pic sometime as I still do use it for my 2600, SNES, 7800, and now single Genesis wall warts. Every time I either have a friend visit or even a contractor over for anything, when they see it hooked up they're super excited about it lol
  7. Getting off topic here, but I am very curious... Is Kevtris pro or anti Amico? Don't want to open a whole discussion up, just curious to know for my own intrigue.
  8. Wait...wut? They put KING AND BALLOON on this thing??? Lolol! A personal guilty pleasure because it's so weird and silly! I would NOT have bet on that title ever getting put in there; it'd be like putting Kosmic Kruzer on a Midway compilation or something Respect for this bizarre addition!
  9. Suddenly and unexpectedly, recroommasters has apparently shut down.  Given their popularity I am very shocked.  Apparently they were having trouble getting in supplies and it was killing them.  Yikes.  Huge blow to the retro arcade gaming community.  I hope they bounce back!!

  10. LOVE the MK font! I didn't realize that Streets of Rage Remake ran on the Pi (tells you what I know); probably still the very best of the SoR series (though SoR4 is fantastic as well). GameRoomSolutions I have heard great things about, and I love what I've seen from them. Great barcade! What type of joysticks and buttons do you have there? They look much better than the ones I got with my cheap Etsy arcade cab
  11. I'm an idiot update... Ok mostly that and partly apparently my 32X to Genesis connector port is very loose. But after switching a huge variety of combinations I realized that indeed the all in one power cable works perfectly, it was my connection that is very wiggly (and which is of course unsettling). But it's good. Those three wall warts got SO HOT in just a few minutes of play, it is great to have a single power plug that runs cool, regulates, etc. Thank you jgkspsx for the recommendation (and attempt to help my clown brain figure out the issue!)! Once I got it all set, everything was great and I was hammering away at minions in Adventures of Batman & Robin and cruising the Acropolis in Virtua Racing Deluxe.
  12. Actually getting sound but no video from Genesis games as well as 32x games. Model 2 genesis and sets cd. Wondering if perhaps they sent me a model 1 power supply by mistake, though the receipt and order show I specified model 2. just very odd
  13. Love the SkeeBall, need one myself! What brand machine is yours? That rug is completely awesome too. And I love the lighting on the consoles, all great stuff!!
  14. I can't believe I'm the first to mention with awe and admiration...SPACE ZAP!! I loved this one so much back when, and also love the Vault Assault 2600 homebrew. But having those four big yellow lit buttons, hard to beat. Simple, addictive fun. Great stuff all around, love the careful selection of arcade games, such interesting control schemes. Huge thumbs up!!
