  1. Lack of space doesn't affect the ability to port new cores like Intellivision. The cores run individually, not all at the same time. NES takes up most of the space due to all the mappers, but that space is free to use for other less ambitious cores.
  2. Analogue will never discuss it officially but I wouldn't be surprised if Kevtris backported some of the cores, especially the Intellivision core which he said was coming.
  3. The reason why it works on MiSTer is documented here: https://github.com/MiSTer-devel/NES_MiSTer/blob/master/rtl/nes.v#L191
  4. There are a number of ways to have essentially zero introduced lag, so as a blanked statement it's not accurate. Unless by "some" you mean 1ms? The scaler has had a mode for 1 or 2 years that only adds a handful of scanlines of lag (similar to Analogue zero lag mode). Or if you hookup to a CRT there is no scaler so no lag there. For controllers there are various options to wire directly to bypass USB lag. Or if you insist on USB you can enable 1000Mhz polling.
  5. What lag issues are you referring to? That sounds like the state 2 years ago.
  6. It's in Nevada near Las Vegas IIRC. People on the West Coast are all paying ~$20. edit: It looks like my Mega Sg shipping was $17 but the Super Nt was $23. The Nt Mini (bigger and heavier) was $23 (v1) and $26 (v2).
  7. It has to do with distance from the fulfillment center. Everyone within about 1000 miles isn't paying much.
  8. You're right, the shipping does seem awfully high in certain cases. And I'm sure there are cheaper fulfillment company options. But the company they use at least seems to do a pretty good job in that the packages arrive pretty quickly and are well protected. In my case shipping has always been ~$20, and when I priced the UPS rate for the same package it ended up being ~$15, so the $5 cost for fulfillment + packaging materials seemed reasonable.
  9. They subcontract the fulfillment/shipping to another company, so that company is the one making the profit on the shipping cost. Analogue doesn't have the manpower or expertise to efficiently get 20,000+ orders out to destinations all over the world.
  10. You can find the latest here: https://www.patreon.com/laxer3a
  11. That kinda sounds like here too! 😄
  12. I wouldn't say that because there's no actual anxiety or addiction. There's just a lot more activity. Imagine if this thread was getting 500 posts per day.
  13. A lot of the migration (including Kevtris) happened way back in early 2018. I remember Kevtris narrating his Super Nt bug fixing in real time, which was fun to be a part of. The problem with Discord is it can be a huge time suck, especially if you follow multiple channels. Catching up after being a away for awhile is a real chore if you feel the need to skim everything. There's a very low signal to noise ratio a lot of the time. But there's also great content sometimes that make it worthwhile.
