  1. There is a very small amount of games that require the MPEG card and some of those even will work without it just not playing the full motion video cut scenes. Of the Saturn ODE's I like the MODE, as it is pretty ease to install and a 1TB SSD will hold the entire library of US and Japanese games. But it is not the cheapest of the bunch. I have a Satiator but have never used it, neat concept but the menus are not that nice. The big advantage to the Satiator is you get to retain your Optical ROM Drive. The fenrir (I think that is the spelling) is a great option, price is good, and install is ease, only down side it you use MicroSD cards and larger ones can be expensive. So in the end unless the MPeg card is something you think you need, dont worry about it, get the ODE that you like best and can afford.
  2. OK here is my collection of Multi-carts and the likes. Side Note this is what made it so I was willing to get back into retro gaming, I live in a condo so space is at a premium and being able to have one cart for a whole system is amazing. Everdrive N8 Pro - I like this one a lot as I prefer my Famicom AV (Toploader) to the NES Topload (which I have also but rarely use). Turbo Everdrive - I think this is the second version, I never use it (as I have a TerraOnion Super System Drive(See Below)). EverDrive GBA x5 - This is in my GBA Consolized (where it pretty much stays). Everdrive N8 NES version - Glow in the dark version from Stone Age Gamer its pretty neat looking. FXPAK Pro - again a Stone Age Gamer version - this one is in the Neon Knights case. EverDrive GB x7 - this also gets used in the GBA Consolizer. EverDrive N8 - this is my older one - works fine, but I got the new one. FDSstick - I forgot to put it in the photo. For those that dont know this is a "multicart" for the Famicom Disk Drive. Perinatally living in the retro gaming cabinet: TerraOnion SSSD³ attached to NEC PCEngine Core II Grafx in a RGR Clear replacement case. TerraOnion M.O.D.E. w/ 1TB SSD installed in Smoke translucent Sega Saturn. TerraOnion M.O.D.E. w/ 1TB SSD installed in Sega Dreamcast with smoked grey translucent case from Muramasa. TeraaOnion MegaSD in Sega Genesis 2 with RGB bypass installed/ TerraOnion NeoSD in Neo Geo MVS C-Box. Like you I have a few that I am not sure you can call Multi-carts but the functionality is basically the same: Nintendo Wii - Soft-modded with 1TB USB drive to play all Wii and GameCube games (also have Wii HDMI installed that I use for RGB output). MiST - not the MiSTer the one that came before it I use to play Amiga games (its the most reliable Amiga I have ever owned!). Machines not pictured are my NES Topload w/ RGBNES installed and my Super Nintendo (MINI or whatever they called the re-release [not that FPGA unit] w/ a RGB mod installed) Edited: I saw you mentioned classic/retro computers. I have 2 CFFA3000s one regular and one of the final signed and number production run units, one in my Apple IIe to IIgs conversion kit and one in my Apple IIe - Also have a BMoW Floppy EMU (w/ Noisy Disk add-on to make it sound like a real drive) for the Apple IIc Plus (all not photo'ed but I can add them if you would like to see them).
  3. I have a GDemu Clone with the mounting kit. I upgraded to a MODE so I removed this. I would like 55$ shipped in the US or I can sell you the kit with a 512GB Samsung SD card with all the US game on it for 130$ shipped. I discounted it all a few dollars and this is a turn key setup. Please feel free to ask questions or make reasonable offers.
  4. I got my MODE and it works well - actually have the Saturn setup pretty nice, Sega RAM expansion, Sega VCD/Mpeg Card and the MODE with a 1TB SSD and a trimmed game collection (mainly removing all the PAL games that are duplicates of the US games). I also have the few ROM cards that are need for a few import games - I know there are patches, but they were super cheap. Really the only thing I need now is a 3D printed mount for the MODE and I will be set. Oh and there is still no Satiator or news about it, and MODE has sold through - talk about poor timing on Professor Abrasive part.
  5. That should be all you need is the Saturn, MODE and HD / SSD. you might want the option 3D printed mounts that will appear but they are not required.
  6. I am sure it exist, but I am not in that business - Someone needs to create a 'clearing house' if you will for all this small builders of the retro gaming seen add ons. Most of these guys are brilliant in what they make, examples: GBA Consolizer - amazing product an absolute shit distribution system Dan Kunz - another one that makes great stuff but good luck getting it and Obviously Prof Abrasive They are brilliant at making the stuff absolute trash at handling the business side, someone needs to be a partner for these guys that actually pays for a quantity of the devices to be made (not the 10, 25 50 and 100) they are producing now and then a yr later making more. have the stock available and ready to go and pay these guy a commission on each unit sold. All of these guys are terrible at the business side of things, they need to accept that fact and take there hands off the wheel and let someone else handle that, they would have less headache and maybe even make more money.
  7. I am not sure if other have seen it but today Prof Abrasive posted an update I will link to the Bob at RGB post. He basically talks about how they are just now making the first 100 units and how slow things are going, STILL NO PRICE POINT. With that post and with my TerraOnion MODE order shipping I pulled the plug on my Patreon support for Prof. Abrasive, I dont see the point of supporting any longer
  8. Everything was moved to eBay and SOLD
  9. I did pre-order one - I did not notice any problems with the cart - as to shipping from the tiny NON-UE country we will have to see what happens there, we will most likely get screwed again by them on that one. I agree with you, I would not take a Phoebe right now if you gave it to me. Bang for you buck is the Fenrir (its available and about 1/2 the price of the MODE). MODE is going to be a nice product, but you are paying the premium (personally I am ok with it) as long as it work as advertised and comes out on time. Satiator - we still dont know a price point or date, he is going to have to come in at less than 150 (and really should be closer to 120) to even be thought about seriously.
  10. I am actually a patreon and I know that he has shown working Satiators (its been beta tested with 20 people and there are plenty of youtube videos), the case has had a final design. I just think that he has missed the ship when it left the port, the MODE is going to take all his potential customers away - the Saturn has needed a good, affordable and readily available ODE for quite some time and TerraOnion is about to produce it. Yes the owner of TerraOnion is a buffoon that repeatably put his foot in his mouth, but the product will be good, affordable and supported, we wont have to wait 4 years for it.
  11. I also preordered a MODE for my Saturn and I already have a 1TB SSD new in the box waiting for it to arrive so I can set it all up. I was waiting on the Satiator but we all know that will most likely never show up.
  12. Interesting post. I was really into console gaming at the end of the 90's and early 2000's - I kinda got out of it when the whole XBOX thing became the norm. I was not going to get back into because the cost of the games that I had back then (TG16/PCE, Neo Geo CD, Saturn and Sega CD etc) now would cost the equivalent of the GDP of many small countries (combined). But then this Multicart and Optical Disk Emulator thing started and it was worth looking at the machines again. For me the first was the PCEngine / TerraOnion SSD3, I am not going to go down the whole store here and skip to the Saturn and the GDemu part. Saturns are stupid cheap - I think I paid 40$ for mine, most the the upgrades for it are also stupid cheap and ease to do (Fan, battery, power supply) I wanted to get the real GDemu but they are nearly impossible to get so I ended up getting a 35$ clone (and really happy to straight up fuck the creator of the GDemu because he wants to make 10 units a month and make it impossible to get - supply and demand you putz! If you dont sell it someone will AND DID, ok I will stop now). So anyway . . . I got the clone, a 500GB Micro SD card, the SD card extension cable and a 3D printed mount to replace the optical drive. I thing I am all in for about 200$ and I have every game for the Saturn that anyone could ever want, you just cant go wrong, I think it is the cheapest of the ODE solutions out there, even if you only want to play 5 or 6 games on your machine it is still worth the cost of entry. (Oh and at least 50$ of that 200 was the MicroSD card if you go with something like a 64 or 128Gb you could easily get much closer to 150$). Neat thing about the Saturn is the VGA you mentioned and even the fact that you can get RGB SCART right out of the machine with just a cable.
  13. Nice collection - I have flipped back and forth with picking up a set of the 3D glasses, but I play on a LCD and wonder if it works on the LCD. I have also accumulated a few doubles also, and I will offer my duplicates out for sale once I have them all together, but I am still waiting on several 'lost' or delayed orders. I dont have all my disk 'in hand' yet, but if everything I ordered shows up, I am down to only needing 8 games/titles.
