  1. Hi, I pulled out my LaserActive machine with a Sega Pac (Still looking for a "affordable" NEC pac as I have games I can't play) after sitting for years. After a LENS cleaning, When I play a Sega Laseractive game, it's flawless, same with a movie Laserdisc (well, as nice as composite can be), but, when I play a physical CART or a Sega CD, the colors are a mess. It's a very red background, and the colors are WAY off. Any idea on this on what could be the problem ? I tried a handful of games, it's not just THIS game. Like I said a Sega Laseractive game plays perfectly. This was one of my holy grails in gaming, I have owned this from retail release (it was a close out deal so I got a epic deal with a bunch of games) so I want to make sure she is running good but, I need to address this issue. Any idea ?
  2. If Mario 64 helped I would agree on the Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 for the Wii (very reasonable priced used and a Wii costs almost nothing today), epic games, then there is always Super Mario 3-D land for the WiiU, another epic Mario game. Also a 3DS as there is a bunch of mario games that are different.. True story, I didn't own a WiiU, and I was on the fence but, once I read that Mario 3-D land was coming from it, I got one right away. I LOVED the 3DS version... and had to play the WiiU version. I have been known through my life to buy a console for 1 game (normally after I buy it, I do get other games for it)...there has been a few over the years...
  3. I have a family member who is really into 3D printing, so it could be possible that I could get a set or 2 printed up but, I need a scan of them. Getting the correct brown "ink" could be a different battle but, It's a pain to play with out them so, even if they were off a little in color, I would enjoy to have a set... Truth be told, I have been thinking about building a 3D printer for this kind of stuff...
  4. Emulation was always better in a lot cases because the original systems lacked the good video outputs to give a really good picture. Take a NES, and connect it via composite (the max it can do video wise) and play some games on a MODERN TV, then take a PI with RetroPie with a NES controller connected via HDMI. It looks FAR better, the picture is so clear... the NES is so easy to emulate, a 10-15 year old PC could emulate it with out a problem, so a PI will do more than fine... Any system prior to the NES only really had RF... so yucky pictures were common place. I started doing RGB upgrades and got a Framemeister.... My NES done with a NESRGB kit with the stereo mod is pretty much pixel perfect on my 65" 4K TV.... complete game changer.. same with other systems...WOW..
  5. I have a really nice shape Arcadia 2001 with about 15-18 games. I have been looking for replacement sticks for years now. If someone can do a 3d print of them, I am all in. I'll take 2. I had them back in the 80's but, they got packed away and that is the last I saw of them... With all the 3rd parties who made this system back then around the world, I am kind of shocked there was never a replacement stick option ever sold...
  6. I know, right ? I'm a Huge Marble Madness fan from way back when... I even have an original Atari System 1 arcade cab with the Marble Madness kit (yes, the full arcade machine). I have been watching this story for many years now. The rumors, and the appearances of the few known full cabs. If this rom is released, i will be buying a kit so I can play it via MAME with a trackball. For me, it's one of those holy grail type things... It would be very big deal to have a copy of these roms to be able to FINALLY play it..
  7. Interested but, $100 is just too much for me...maybe when 2nd batch hits ?
  8. Oh, Everdrive 64... could be interested in that one....
  9. All of the above. I've played 1000's of games, I've owned/still own, pretty much every system out there from 1975ish to current. They all had their gems, and their crappy games. I am into games, not really what generation it's from. I will go some days playing the new Modern Warfare, to SNES Super Mario land, or even 2600 Yars' revenge. I could never decide on the best Generation of consoles. Could it be the NES, SNES ? I remember having 10+ friends over my house in my room playing Mario Cart and compete till we have a winner, this was a regular thing... Or Neo-Geo fighting games ? Who knows, I had a blast through all of them and still enjoy them.
  10. Hey all, I've been looking for one of these boards for a while now. I know it's possible to build one As the board is here and there is BOM for all the parts https://oshpark.com/shared_projects/XKoWs6TP Was looking for an assembled one, depending on the price. If you have one for sale, drop me a PM ! Thanks !
  11. I say for people to grab the rom before it goes away... The original dev wont even say who he is... And people do this because they love the game. "Due to copyright reasons, the dev obviously doesnt want this shared under his name and won’t offer it for download in any official way." And yes, Nintendo will shut it down once they catch wind of it... but, I got a copy !
  12. Hey all, I just ran into this on my feed on Twitter, and WOW, I cant wait to be able to play it. It looks epic... Video/pics here... Some examples from above... It's a completely new game, all new levels, 4 player capable and stays faithful of the original. There is a rom out there for it, that I found, if you follow some of the messages on the above link, you should be able to find it. I have a Super Wild card but, the floppy drive is dead. I ordered a Floppy Emulator and it's due in tomorrow... This means I have the rom and I cant even play it tonight It really does look incredible and the dev put years of work into it..
  13. Phantasy Star is my favorite, I still play it every 5-6 years, I just played/finished the re translation version of it. Great game.. Back in the day, comparing the NES vs the Master system (I did have both of them), the master system games always looked better but, the NES had bigger titles... Did you know back in the day, If you had a Master System and got STUCK on a game, you could call them and they would MAIL you a cheat sheet/walk through? I have a few of them, including Phantasy Star...
  14. Hey all, Looking for some Orange OEM Game Cube controllers. Got kind of obsessed getting an Orange GameCube and grabbed one, so looking for a fair deal for some controllers. If they don't work, as long as they are not physically broken/smashed, as long as the deal is right, I might be interested BUT, I do want Original Nintendo ones. Thanks for your time ! -Dave
  15. I guess it depends on the type of kid you were, Some kids would just deal with it, others, like myself, would wait till the parents are out, pull out my Nintendo bits (as I had some back then) and pull apart the cart, get the board right in the slot(as you could go around that and use some needle nose pliers to get it in the slot) and play the game... If they came home, shut off the system and pop it back up, my parents would not even notice the little board in the bottom of the slot
