  1. The correct answer is: you have to swap all of the guts not just the screen. Once I swapped the board out too everything works just fine. Hooray! Stan Helps Those Who helps Himself :spidey:
  2. I have a much cherished pearl blue SP that recent broke (the ribbon on the LCD screen snapped, don't ask). I have another SP laying around (black) I keep for spare parts and thought this was a perfect opportunity to just swap the screens and be back in business. I managed to successfully swap the screens with no issue (I watched a how-to video that actually was informative), but the swapped screen has extremely poor video quality. It looks like the brightness has been turned WAY up and everything is washed out. There are also bars around the screen (top and bottom) that were not there before. Some of the sprites don't look like they fully render, but I think maybe they are just washed out too. (see pic) So the question is, was the replacement screen just a POS also or did I muck something up in the swap? The ribbon is securely inserted into the jack on the board, so I feel like it's making good connection. Could something else be wrong? I was pretty careful in the swap so I don't think I did any damage, but it's always possible. The swapped screen is one of the newer backlight screens, but people upgrade their old front lit screens all the time with no issue, so I don't think it's a compatibility issue. Any help is greatly appreciated. I've had this pearl blue baby since the beginning and I would hate to lose it. Sadly replacement screens cost as much as another used SP, so if I have to replace part I'll just have to replace all...

      You mean a virtual vacation, in the game some alien is playing somewhere, called "EarthSim"?

      I started a new world to take advantage of all the villager updates and started nowhere near a village. Cured a zombie villager and started my own.

  9. Reading the first Red Sonja paperback. I had no idea she was first created for Conan comics, then translated to books

    1. dj_convoy

      Yep. She was loosely based on a heroine from a different, non Conan related REH story which was adapted to the highly successful Conan comic line. She fit in like peanut butter and jelly.

      Yeah, Roy Thomas does a nice forward to the book chronicling her origin. Very cool

  10. Watching a family member battle depression and knowing there is nothing you can do to help really sucks. I strongly recommend against.

      You can simply say, "If you ever need to talk, I'm here." Sometimes that's all you can do...Maybe knowing that would help.

      That sucks for sure. Recommend some good writing that is often very funny, too: https://thebloggess.com/

      Seen it and did not like it. It lacked real warmth and while the visuals were kind of impressive, Dumbo himself was not really as endearing as I hoped. Keaton was wasted too. Having said that, my missus loved it and wants the 4k blu ray went it is released.

      Depending on the IQ of one's SO, they might see Dumbo every single freaking God forsaking day of the year.
