  1. Yes, that was my plan. Or give them a USB drive with some simple instructions. I haven't modded my own yet, though. What's the method with the best ease-to-features ratio you've found, if you don't mind my asking?
  2. I bought one from Target when it was $30, and I bought four more today at $20. That's an amazing price. They will make good gifts.
  3. Thanks for your input. They do seem to work fine for charging, and I could avoid using the wall wart with the maddening swivel prongs. I wonder if there is some extra circuitry in the OEM charger that allows you to play and charge simultaneously.
  4. Forgot about Pickleball. My kid and his friends love it. https://www.nbcnews.com/better/lifestyle/pickleball-fastest-growing-sport-you-ve-never-heard-ncna992106
  5. I recently bought a couple 3DS to USB cables for a few bucks. I was hoping to use a regular phone charger with the cable and occasionally use a power bank when needed. However, when I attach the cables to a 5v, 2A charger (also used 5v, 1A) the charging light on the 3DS blinks erratically rather than staying solidly lit when the console is on. Same thing happens with a power bank. The light stays on if the console is powered off. My question is whether anyone successfully uses this cable to power the 3DS while the console is on. I tried both cables, so I don't think it is because of a defect in one.
  6. Even though I don't play these lawn games, I think this could be a nice seller for Amico. You can also address controller complaints by saying that you can play Amico with a controller in one hand and a drink in another!
  7. I just saw an article about how lawn games such as cornhole and kubb are becoming a big money industry. "Lawn Games" for Amico could be a big hit with kids and hipsters!
  8. Most Windows 98 games run just as well or better in XP. The exceptions are those games that require hardware with no XP drivers such as Aureal Vortex sound cards. Windows 98 is a versatile OS because of it can play DOS games.
  9. Do you link to eBay from Rakuten?
  10. 15 smackers over here.
  11. ebay Bucks payout day! Check your email for your certificate code.
  12. Phil's Computer Lab on Youtube has some nice videos on using a P4 system to play retro games.
  13. Xbox 360 and PS3 dropped HBO Go support this year, so I replaced them as streaming boxes with a used Xbox One. I also have a 4K Fire Stick, but I like the optical audio out of the consoles. A few years ago, a used Xbox 360 Slim was about $70, and now a used Xbox One is about $80-$100. So it's annoying but not the end of the world.
  14. The Capcom Dungeons & Dragons beat 'em ups, Tower of Doom and Shadow over Mystara, are great. I played them with CoinOps 8 on a modded Xbox, then just bought them for the PS3 off the PS Store. Not sure if it has been mentioned already, but Gauntlet Legends for Xbox/PS2/GC.
