What. Why?

An important mechanic in the game is consuming a drug called BLU. It gives you a huge power boost for a short time. But if you use it too much you can get addicted and then you'll see some negative affects.

So the cartridge was put into a pill case. The same thing you pop real life pills out of.

@evilevoix Love that Bravoman box art👍

It's killer.  The detail and even the verbiage is fantastic.  I love everything they did.  Even advertisements for 32X games.  The game recognizes your hardware.  If you use a Gen 1-2-3 Sega Cd 1-2 or a 32X it knows!!!  Killer.

EXTREME attention to detail.

Rescued these from the electronics recycling box at work. They appear to work fine.

Some recent pick-ups.

Did they actually put Pier Solar back in print, or did you find it somewhere else?

There is a Pier Solar re-print coming (maybe, sort of...) but the one pictured is the first run that Water Melon Games called Pier Solar Posterity Edition (Genesis version).

I traded a Paprium Collectors Edition for this Pier Solar.

There's a guy on ebay that adds games.  Find the listing for Galaga rapid fire and shoot the seller an email asking if he can modify whatever games you have.

Grabbed a non working O2 system just get get the voice module.  I figured the system wouldn't work and the voice module would be fine.  It was the other way around.  It looked like it had been submerged in water and left to corrode the insides. An hour of cleaning and it's up and running.  This thing would've blown my mind as a child...

I like to program Type and Tell to say dirty words, haha!

No, I do high scores elsewhere, and I did use it(Type and tell) to say part of my "introduction", "Hi Everyone, this is Rogerpoco", blah, blah(well, not too much, it doesn't give ya a whole lot of characters).

Fun system, kinda weird-most of the main games are "one-life", is different than most other systems I've ever played in that regard, but fun.

Nice find, looks clean, glad you got it working, is almost always worth it to take something apart and clean it before giving up on it-don't even really sometimes gotta "fix it", just clean it up, and Yay!

Ordered a Raphnet NES/SNES-to-Gamecube adapter circuit a while ago, and got it in the mail yesterday :)

I started building it last night, but it was a little too close to bedtime, didn't get to finish it.

Putting it inside of a cheap $10 adapter that was supposed to do the same thing, but has like a two-second input lag >_< Talk about worthless.

This will let you use a snes controller on the GC?

I would assume so you could use it with the Game Boy Player?

Yep, and/or NES. He sells pre-built ones too, but I didn't want my crappy $10 adapter to go to completely to waste.

I did have to sacrifice a controller extension cable too, though...stupid adapter didn't have a pin or anything for the +5v line.

He's got a bunch of different adapters (when they're in stock). I was tempted to get the Classic-Controller-to-GameCube one.

Yep, that was the main idea, but I'll probably use it for emulation and stuff on the Wii, too.

It's kind of cool to be able to play GBC games with an NES pad.

I also wanted to try it with Resident Evil Zero and the Re-Make, but I don't know how well that'll work...I know Zero needs the C-stick for controlling the other character when they're on the same screen as you...and I really like having rumble... ¬_¬

Let us know how it works out.  I almost bought one of the cheap adapters to use a snes pad for GB player games,  but I'm glad I didn't after hearing your experience.  I ended up using one of the Old Skool brand Hori clone controllers,  which I like,  but I wouldn't mind having an adapter as well.

I got one of those but to USB. I wired them inside a console to the original NES ports but added an extra data wire to an unused line and made 1player NES to 2 player SNES adapters. I see no lag. Raph makes good stuff. I hope you get the performance you are looking for!

It works great, as far as I can tell, but I've only tested it with Game Boy Player via GBi.

It felt kind of "slippery" when I tried it with the GBA Pac-Man Collection, but I'm not sure if that was the adapter, or my controller, or if my reflexes were just a bit off. I'd have to do some tests and comparisons.

 

But I think I really should've gotten the Classic Controller adapter, that would've been a lot more versatile (especially since you can get brand new first party NES and SNES controllers for it).

Maybe some other time.

I saw them on eBay for dirt cheap and clicked "buy now" before I could even think about it...

I immediately looked up Amazon reviews and they all said the input lag was terrible, so I went back to cancel my order.

Got an email the next morning saying that it couldn't be cancelled because they had already shipped it out.

Seriously!?? I ordered it at 2 in the morning, there is absolutely no way.

They did not get a positive review.

Yeah, I remember that. I was planning to wait until Black Friday to grab one, but they went out of stock pretty fast, and there's no sign that they'll be making new ones any time soon.

Plus, I prefer playing that stuff with the original YX/BA layout, rather than the GameCube's funky layout.
BTW, that controller doesn't have rumble, does it? I never saw it mentioned in any of the reviews (I might've asked you already).

Nope,  it's basically just a SNES pad with different buttons

Been looking for this issue for years to complete my Odyssey Adventure collection.  Finally nabbed one. Now if I could just get my hands on the rare issue of Colecovision Experience!
