ST Ports Series 2 Ready for Pre-Order NOW!

Recommended Posts

I know I'm not in the majority, but I really did like the style Maniac Mansion had on NES over other versions I've seen. Also, love that game's soundtrack. Anyhow, looking forward to this, the version of Commando I was able to play at the AtariAge booth a while back definitely felt like a few steps above the NES port in this case.

Thanks :)

 

Please post when you get them and comments after you have played. It'll be great to read what people think.

Badlands is outstandingly good, as good as I remember, great game I spent like 2 hours on it out of the box. Thanks.

Just got mine in the mail! Can't wait to try them out. One thing I've noticed (and this is by no means a gripe, so please don't feel insulted) is the boxes are very, very, very slightly larger than a typical Jaguar/SNES game box. I noticed the same thing with Alice's Mom's Rescue. I wouldn't ever have noticed except they don't fit into a typical plastic SNES box protector, though some are apparently manufactured with a bit more wiggle room so I've been able to use those. Not sure if anybody else has this problem (or even bothers with protectors) but just something I've come across with some of the homebrews.

^^For your horrible info: original Jag boxes and SNES boxes have the same size, and both fit into the same saftey cases... that's his point.

Now you say: "Oh!"

I have mine in those. They are tight, but they do fit :) I didn't know the SNES boxes were the same size either as I only have N64 stuff :D

Any chance someone might make some universal game case inserts for these? that way it matches on the shelf with the others.

 

I think there is a thread about those... ;)

 

Going to ask Sheep on TCP soon for these.

I have them in said cases, but I've noticed some batches are tighter fits than others. Regardless, the homebrew boxes are definitely incrementally larger, as I removed other Jag games from their protectors and tried to squeeze in the HBs to no avail. Basically had to search for some that were part of a larger batch...might have to look into which distributor I got the bigger ones from.

 

At any rate, yes, SNES, Jaguar, and N64 games all use the same size boxes and protectors. I think Genesis games fit in said protectors as well, but most of them are plastic cases to begin with, so it's hardly worth the bother unless it's something really, really valuable. However, there are a few games (Bubsy comes to mind) for the Genesis that do come in cardboard boxes which make more sense to put in a protector. Really, it's just the OCD coming out in me when it comes to my collection. It seems a shame to spend all the money for a pristine homebrew and not do my best to keep it minty fresh.

If you find some larger batch ones let me know. I squeezed in my homebrews, but am afraid one day I will pull them out and box art will peel off and stick to the plastic.

So you're using a box protector that you fear will ruin your box?

 

Makes sense.

Lol. Well it fits like OJ's glove. I was hoping it would stretch as opposed to ruin the box.

Your thought is that when cardboard is placed inside hard plastic that the hard plastic will be stretched by the cardboard?

 

Makes sense.

The box art should not stick to the plastic as it is hidden behind lamination & having pulled lamination off one of my boxes previously it didn't actually affect the artwork badly at all, just wan't nice and shiny anymore.

Apparently there are two different types of those clear sleeves. I bought a bunch awhile back and they are tight. I just ordered 10 more on ebay and they are a little bigger. They also are different looking, not the same type of plastic.

Here is the new(bigger) batch I ordered:

Be interested to hear how they fit :)

The smaller ones fit, but are tight. The slightly bigger ones fight perfect!

btw...the smaller ones came with a tissue sheet in between each sleeve. The bigger ones did not have the tissue sheet separating the sleeves.

I just made a big order of SNES/N64/Jaguar protectors from Retro Protection. The homebrews are snug, but fit right in with no issues. I've made several orders from Dan over the last few months, and he's always delivered quality protectors quickly.

Badlands was awesome... I played it with my daughter for like 30 minutes (which is a long time to keep her concentration). I also played Commando...
