  1. lol.... If I thought a cragslist ad would work I'd try it. I'm actually sort of starting over on my streetpass collection now. I previously had a 2ds that the screen broke on and had quite a few Mii on it. Being near 70 and since my job has me driving through lots of residential areas so much I was getting quite a few hits. But that was last year and now it seems that the use of the 3ds line of systems has dried up around here. I really enjoy my 3ds and it's a real shame more people aren't still playing it..... Darn smart phones and tablets!!
  2. I'm looking for some fellow 3ds owners to do some sort of meet up. I live in the Zanesville Ohio area which being right along Interstate 70 between Columbus and Wheeling Wv makes it fairly easy to find. I'm specifically looking to do a streetpass meet so I can unlock a few things and maybe do some buying and trading. If anyone's interested or knows of anything nearby leave a message. Thanks guys!
  3. I'm a big Sega fan and have seen recent games being developed for various Sega hardware. Of course while checking these out I've seen lots of things being made for the SNES and NES. Now is this because these systems are easiest to program for or wide availability of systems/emulators? The original xbox and the PS2 are popular for emulators and media centers but don't seem to attract much actual game development. Just thought I would ask those who actually do this stuff.
  4. Playing thru Titanfall and Destiny..... Also like DeathSmiles!
  5. WOW! Quite the response...... I realize that the game consoles are computer based but a computer is not always a pc or a game console. My primary irritation with more modern systems is the similarities to pc gaming. Updates to fix system errors, or updates for game issues, or my favorite..... hangs or crashes. So my criteria for a "Real" game system would most likely be... Turn on, game starts, play game, turn off (really turns off, doesn't go to sleep). Keep in mind that this is just my opinion and in no way demands that anyone else believe the same
  6. I was recently having a discussion with some friends and associates at work about game consoles. During the discussion the recent xbox one and PS4 were being put forth as the "best" game consoles but I threw in that neither was really a game console. I felt that pretty much every console since the original xbox has been a pc in disguise. I would have to say the GBA or N64. Anyone else like to throw in their opinion?
  7. The external video used by the Katsukity mod is based off USB and has some lag issues. It works just fine for capturing video for playback but requires a computer to display it and on anything approaching a twitch type game it can throw off move timing. RGB signals could probably converted directly to a RGB scart cable or maybe a VGA type connector but there would be no upscale. Some sort of line doubler to bring the resolution up to modern flat screen dimensions would be needed. Biggest problem with a dock style system would be the connector between the 3ds/2ds and dock. From what several modders have stated there really isn't a huge amount of room for add-ons in the case or on the board. That was the main reason I stated they would probably have to eliminate the portability to make it home console usable.
  8. I too have wondered about a DS family home console. Found the Katsukity 3ds video capture and a couple others doing the same thing but as was already stated it is not exactly what we're looking for. There is also and external controller mod, , which allows a variety of controllers to be used with the system. I think someone would have to look at removing the portability of the system to really get somewhere. The display seems to be a parallel RGB setup and some sort of converter to a different standard would be needed. Perhaps an standalone board with video and audio in place of the screen assembly. External hookup for a controller and maybe a converter to translate the screen digitizer inputs to mouse movements or a touch pad. Obviously a custom enclosure would make it a cleaner looking setup.
  9. Well I guess I will have to hope that Analogue produces a Analogue St next. So I hereby ask everyone to go out a buy two Super nts so that the company will be successful enough to make a Sega Genesis version
  10. Obviously not a complete solution but it does offer a look at something that someone could mess with now if so desired. Not sure how the core in the analogue Nt or super nt is implemented but wonder if the FPGAGen could be ported to that and put on the DE-10? Anyone with a few extra dollars and some time on their hands wanna order one of these things and report back I'd love to hear all about it.
  11. Well it appears that at least to a certain extent your dreams have come true...... A FPGA based Genesis is already out there, . It uses a DE-10 Nano kit FPGA. Downloads of a Genesis core can be found in the video description along with some basic directions. Haven't gone much further checking it out than that. Check it out and see what you think. Maybe someone can ask Kevtris what he thinks and any input he might have such as controllers and fine tuning.
  12. True. But while you, me and the great majority of people on this forum could throw a Orange Pi and disc system together for gaming, a consumer friendly option would probably go over pretty well. There's a business opportunity staring you right in the face :-)
  13. Working on rebuilding my Sega collection. Genesis and it's peripherals first. Next would be the Saturn then Dreamcast. Might throw the Game Gear in there somewhere as money permits.
  14. Yeah the disc drive emulation box seems to be taken care of by the Seedi multi Console system (assuming it gets made). My idea for a all in one is stated above and I think it would probably look similar to a Sega Saturn. Cartridge slot located to the rear and disc drive in front on top. Someone could then make whole compilation (legal licensed versions) of original genesis games played off discs. I really wish someone would do a system like this..... P.S. Really doesn't need to be FPGA. Plenty of decent hardware clones that could be adapted to such a system.
