  1. ^^^^^^ That. For those who went the CRT path, the future looks a bit uncertain. Either source an upscaler (older micomsoft units seem to be unaffected by price hikes for now) and related cables plus any required modifications or source more CRTs. Hoping there will be more projects like the OSSC that can some day match and surpass the XRGB. I didn't go the upscaler path but find it interesting to read about the different setups and modifications. Will be following this story closely.
  2. Good idea to necropost now that Tectoy is "reviving" the Megadrive. Apparently not many use Barzilian hardware in North America. Depending on the console it may not be that bad to play in B/W ie the Dactar.
  3. Imagine having one of those back in the day, sitting next to your 486. Being able to backup games from the video store.
  4. Keep the games you enjoyed back in the good old days then get rid of everything else. You'll fell much better.
  5. If these "inaccuracies" happen now, I'd hate to hear what other inaccuracies will be told in 20 years.
  6. These clones systems are more common than one may think (outside the US at least).

  8. Thanks Osgeld and Stephen for your suggestions. By just touching I suspect the 6532 is the culprit (almost immediately gets super hot). I have a working system on the way, I'll use its chips for testing.
  9. If any, I see the WiiU going up in price. It will become this "rare" and "underrated" system with "gems" to collect for. Got mine back in 2013, I love it, it has the kind of games I like (mainly platforming) and are very well made. I'm happy with it being the last "current gen" console I ever get.
  10. I did it a couple months ago or so. Once you setup the whole enchilada it is a pretty awesome experience. GC games at 480p indeed. The biggest advantage I see is the video processing and scaling which is done at the WiiU. No lag that I can notice. I typically use the WiiU gamepad since it's wireless but a PS3 controller via the USB port will work as well (as well as others I haven't tested). Thanks to Wii hombrew you could potentially play all Nintendo desk consoles from the NES to the WiiU. As long as you follow instructions carefully (read, read, read) and run the vWii specific programs you should be good.
  11. Damn! "rare" and "vintage". There's no hope
  12. So last night I took it apart and cleaned everything to the best of my knowledge. Same behavior. Checked the voltage regulator, input is about 11v output is 5.15v (not sure if thats acceptable). I read on a reddit post that a healthy console would show random vertical colored bars and make noise when no cartridge is present. So I'm thinking something is wrong with the cart slot. Next step will be redoing the solder in the cart port.
  13. With cartridge there is no sound. Without cartridge there is a weird noise.
  14. Just noticed the links to the pictures don't work. Let's see if I'm lucky this time. With ET With Kangaroo With No cart
