      Yes. Just edit the duke3d.cfg file. It's just an ASCII file. Scroll down a little bit and you should see values like this:

      ;ScreenMode

      ; - Chained - 0

      ; - Vesa 2.0 - 1

      ; - Screen Buffered - 2

      ; - Tseng optimized - 3

      ; - Paradise optimized - 4

      ; - S3 optimized - 5

      ; - RedBlue Stereo - 7

      ; - Crystal Eyes - 6

      ;

      ;ScreenWidth passed to engine

      ;

      ;ScreenHeight passed to engine

      ;

      ;

      ScreenMode = 1

      ScreenWidth...

      Set the resolution to 1600x1200 in the .cfg file. Build Engine at that res will cripple lesser machines.

  4. Dangit, all the fun retro arcades are in IL. Wish they were closer to MN.

  5. Well, I just bought a $100+ item on eBay. So, if the pattern holds, we can expect another 10%-15% discount code in the next day or two.

      8% back in eBay Bucks offer went live today.

      If a person is reselling, it's a good idea to keep track of how much they paid for items so that the cost of goods can be accounted for. It's not 100% profit, in other words.

  9. Curse you Slickdeals and my spontaneous purchase of a refurbished Wii U from Gamestop. So hope it's in halfway decent shape.

      Thanks -- I bought one too. They were ought of the Zelda bundle so I got the "premium refurbished" one. It is the same price as the non-premium one.

  11. Mappy on the 2600 is an incredible feat of programming. Such a professional product from the game itself, sound and music design down to the box, artwork and manual. Champ Games and everyone involved in this game should be exceedingly proud

  12. Playing Final Fantasy VII on a Voodoo 3500

      Cool. I just ordered a few OEM 3500s without the A/V box.

      Mine's a TEAC too. I decided to forego eBay and go straight to a reputable seller on Amibay.

  17. New Dreamcast Rev.0 and VGA box!

      I bought this particular lot partly because it came with HotD 2 and a light gun. Won't be able to use the VGA box with it unless I can scare up a CRT monitor.

  19. Well, I can do scart through the framemeister now thanks to a new cable. After a great deal of fiddling I finally got the settings right. I wasn't really expecting it to blow my mind, but it kind of did. Omega MVS + Scart + Framemeister = perfection.

      So, would you say that the FM is not worth it without a console with SCART output?

  20. Broke out the 800 CTIA for some 5200 conversion goodness.

      I think it is desirable only for completeists and collectors. I'm sure it would have sold if I had listed it just as an Atari 800 and not mentioned that it had an "older" graphics chip.

      I tried to sell it a couple of years ago for pretty cheap (~$90)but couldn't. I'm glad I kept it. Beautiful machine.

  22. So I spent my first few hours with my framemeister last night. Aside from the optional scanlines, I really had to hunt for differences. Seems to do considerably better with high-contrast areas in motion. I didn't have the 'oh wow' experience that I've seen on youtube at all, but I can't test RGB yet. Composite performance is where I saw the most difference.

      Yeah, I thought it was supposed to turn your LCD TV into a Sony BVM monitor.

      That's too bad. I am thinking about getting one. If you feel like it, consider starting a forum thread with pics.

      Oh, I didn't mean this to be a FS thread. I'm just trying to figure out why I can't stop buying these. About half of them don't work anyway.
