  1. I don't know, but this is the first time I've heard about it, and I'm wondering if it can convert PAL-NTSC. JVC's webpage on it doesn't say.
  2. I'll look, but even if I don't find anything, thank you so much for posting this video! I LOVE learning about the history of the gaming industry! I think this video was made in 1982. Good grief, I was 5 years old! My older brother and I got a 2600 for Christmas that year.
  3. OK, thanks for the replies! Sorry I didn't search before asking.
  4. I know that PDP-11s were used in the late 1970s, but by the late 1980s, I'm really curious as to what computers Atari 2600 game programmers were using? PCs, Macs, or something else?
  5. In particular, Battlemorph and Hover Strike: Unconquered Lands. Although Iron Soldier 2 got a cartridge port, I don't know if Battlemorph or Hover Strike would fit on a cartridge. Still, as someone who will probably never own a Jaguar CD unit, these are two games that I'd love to see on cartridges!
  6. Is it a Framemeister? I’ve heard that other SCART to HDMI converters are pretty bad, and will eventually break.
  7. Is the video signal in a 6128plis easier to convert to NTSC? I don’t want to spend the money for a Framemeister.
  8. I dont own a Framemeister, but Im interested in the GX4000. For video, could I use a SCART to composite adapter to convert the signal from PAL to NTSC?
  9. True. I'll just stick to playing on my CRT TV. I'll always love the PS2, though, and the other 6th gen consoles.
  10. Well I don’t think I’ll ever be using this emulator. You have to dump the BIOS from whatever model of PS2 you have, and I’m just not comfortable doing that. Plus, doing so evidently requires you to use FreeMcBoot, which I find to be to confusing. At any rate, I have a slim PS2, so it doesn’t have a hard drive.
  11. Im impressed with what Ive seen of this emulator on YouTube. But, assuming you have a DVD-ROM drive in your PC, can you use original PS1 and PS2 game discs with PCSX2?
  12. I know that I won't be prosecuted; I just like to do emulation legally when I can.
  13. Good points. I just really wish that whatever copyright (and/or other?) laws that exist, with regards to emulation, would be changed. I've heard that a lot of it has to do with the Digital Millenium Copyright Act, although I don't know how much. Regardless, I really think it's absurd to have laws that hold that emulating computer and console games from the 80's, and even 90's, is illegal. I'd love to get an Amiga, but living in the USA, even getting an NTSC Amiga 500 would be pretty difficult, and expensive. I love the design of the CD32, but CD32s are now listed for at least $500.00 on eBay. And that's minus shipping and handling charges from European countries.
  14. My MacBook has a 256GB SSD for storage and I could use Boot Camp to run Windows 10, but I don't know how much space Windows 10 needs. All I would use it for is emulation.
  15. I have a MacBook Pro, and I would love to get Amiga Forever, but it's not available for Mac OS. I know that there's FS-UAE, but I don't think it's legal (you're not paying for the copyrighted Kickstart ROMs) like Amiga Forever is.
  16. MetalJesusRocks had the Seedi in a YouTube video today. It looks cool, but whoever’s making it decided not to get the copyrighted BIOS files, and that’s annoying. How the heck is an average Joe Schmo like me supposed to legally get a hold of those files? Email people at Sega and Sony Computer Entertainment, assuming I even know (I don’t) who to contact??

  17. I hope they get the sound right on this new Genesis console. Is it just really difficult to emulate the Yamaha sound chip that was in the Sega Genesis?
  18. Lately, I've been hearing that the Atari Jaguar CD is not a very durable unit. So what typically goes wrong with these? Is it bad capacitors, or problems with the laser reading discs, or something else?
  19. I've been told that some will, and some won't, but I wonder if there's a list somewhere. Anyway, that's my question.
  20. OK, thanks! I do want to use and play the real floppies. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  21. Which model of Atari ST is compatible with the largest number of ST games? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
