  1. It should, and it's 3000 mA (milliamps) which is basically 3 Amps.
  2. I don't really understand why more people here don't use itch.io
  3. Could it be a prototyping cart?
  4. Maybe there is a two prong side-mount molex connector that would work, or you could just solder a couple of header pins to the board and let it float.
  5. EXO kind of reminds me of a remake of an old game I played years ago. I can't remember what it was, but you drove a tank that had a detachable upper section that could fly and you could use it to explore other parts of the level.
  6. If I'm not mistaken, ROB was partially created to help appease retailers who had been burned by the crash two years prior. By the time everyone realized it was crap, it didn't matter. I've even read interviews where Howard Lincoln talked about how hard it was to get retailers trust them even when the SNES came out because of the 83 crash. So I don't think it was an accident or a miracle. Nintendo had a lot of people working really hard to make the machine a success, and when you combine that with all the killer games they were putting out, it was pretty much inevitable. Also, don't feel too bad about all those companies tied into exclusive contracts with Nintendo. They made a ton of money selling games on the NES, and many of the more popular games got released across multiple platforms regardless. I think there are around ten different home versions of Contra out there. One big thing to remember is how huge Mario was in the 80's and early 90's. He was more popular than Mickey Mouse at one point. That was something Sega didn't have until Sonic.
  7. Great video. I really like that you went through the trouble of testing so many sticks and controllers.
  8. Ray was ahead of his time. People laugh that he wanted people to buy extra copies of ET for their ski lodges, but Nintendo has been selling the same games across multiple consoles to people for years now.
  9. You might try some right angle header pins. I used to know what type of connectors these were, but I've forgotten. I believe they were originally used in some kind of phone back in the 1980s, and they weren't necessarily for power. I think they might have connected some kind of handset or modem, but I'm not sure. The 7800 uses a 9V power supply, so it might be easier just to replace it with a more conventional connector https://www.ebay.com/itm/373836370649?hash=item570a6252d9:g:jaEAAOSwwk5hw8NR These are the pins I'm talking about. You can pull them loose from their plastic, and might be able to insert them into connector you have. https://www.ebay.com/itm/263964891481?_trkparms=ispr%3D1&hash=item3d75889959:g:L4cAAOSwDP1bzBi6&amdata=enc%3AAQAGAAAA4CC7oBj9iZ9qhXGL%2BxpvBqQjDIV8KGsr2AbTgUVMlToSWxzGOcKmC7kDBJlJG%2FogXClqbNztxrpD12QkkND8RKp7stey7v%2B5OD9I9Hy3rIaWfmtkXNkzl4UxpmZGmfeUFnpNdCWjMKK8TkO5lhm%2FYxC07po3OLdkPIKFfqPeRSpClPqJlpdhilJv7Gfx7D6KTCiiT32fCsUIuH%2BC9aOomHyc1vPNu9jE9gMnfgTn5Hh3605U2mrJ6GBIGoOr5lRgTLJ%2BHB6Tb6K2gAYhGTzI3P2zxFK%2FeU4MeT04YyySZF7Q|tkp%3ABFBM2vPHjI9g
  10. Aren't the Hyperkin joysticks made with miro switch boards like this? How do the two compare?
  11. That's what they call "research" these days. 😛
  12. I went with the 680ohm. It seems to work fine also.
  13. They kind of look like Japanese sausages.
