    Is this BC Racers legit or bootleg

    I picked up a copy of BC Racers on e-bay, and it's tingling my spidey senses. The first thing I noticed was that the manual had a funny texture. It was still a thick glossy cover with thinner pages, and a professional looking double spine staple and fold. But the cover is somehow slightly less...

    Fix your game gears!

    My primary game gear finally died. Unlike my other game gear that just had the no-audio problem, my primary game gear would randomly power-cycle in the middle of games, which can also be attributed to the same caps. For those who don't know, due to poor imported capacitors at the time of the...

    Permanently renewing cartridge slot pins

    Last week I finally went about modding my NES to play imports. You can find the details on the web fairly easily, all you have to do is flip pin 4 on the region lockout chip. I also did the solder to pin 11 (gnd) for safety. While I was at it, I was going to replace my cartridge slot assembly...

    Groove On Fight (jp) "ram cart not connected" error

    Groove On Fight (jp) "ram cart not connected" error I have an action replay cart I use that lets me play imports on my saturn. It doesn't have the built-in ram upgrades like the 4-in-1 cart, but so far it's allowed me to play all imports. Until I got to Groove On Fight (power instinct III). It...

    Phantasy Star Universe

    Did you know that http://www.phantasy-star-universe.com/community/ Still takes you here? Worthless observation I know. But I was going through my 12 years of archives of my "favorites" links, and was surprised to see that my old link to segaxtreme still worked.

    Road Rash Sega CD Blue Screen Of Death!

    LOL I couldn't believe it when it happened. I booted up Road Rash for the Sega CD and got a blue screen of death! It was just a blue screen with the word "placeholder". Well it didn't take too long of tinkering to figure out it was a backup ram issue. I deleted some files and it booted fine. I...

    Are there any analog joysticks for playstation?

    I was just playing wipeout and thinking how this sucks playing with those terrible playstation thumbsticks. Well I guess that's not a huge revelation since everything sucks on the standard playstation controller. But this specifically, as about a decade ago I had wipeout XL on the PC, and played...

    US games support for megadrive analog controller XE-1 AP

    Anyone ever heard of this? http://segaretro.org/XE-1_AP It is supported by a number of games that I enjoy and own. I can't locate one on e-bay so it must be pretty rare. There's a note that says it's unknown if support still exists in the US versions of these games. Does anyone know that? I...

    SNES Pocky & Rocky sprite issues with S-Video

    I just got Pocky & Rocky for the SNES. The character sprites where all weird, cropped, moved, compressed. I tried everything, but eventually tracked it down to the use of an s-video cable. Now the weird thing is that I had tried to rule that out by using an old fasioned NES style RF adapter...

    Eliminate Down booteg IDing

    Does anyone have scans or shots of a legitimate eliminate down box/cart/instructions? There's a guy on e-bay who sells bootlegs all the time, and he says they are bootlegs in the description, and sells them for relatively cheap. But lately there's been a number of eliminate down's showing up...

    Saturn light gun machine gun with laser sight

    I found this awesome saturn/psx light gun in the shape of a submachine gun with a laser sight. I can only find one instance of it on the internet, http://www.retro-mo.de/Seiten/spielsachen/sega.html, search "naki light gun", it's about 2/3rds down the page, 4th column. Unfortunately I can't get...

    How to save game in saturn quake?

    Just picked up quake at the discland buy 2 get 1 free sale. It creates a save file when you load it. But I can't find anywhere in the game to actually save your progress. And the start screen only gives you a "new game" option. There must be some trick, like hitting up up right a b at the level...

    Under Defeat alternate view modes don't work?

    Under Defeat alternate view modes don't work? I recently got Under Defeat for the dreamcast. According to the options, there are 3 different view modes, including an auto-type and more iso-metric (lower) view. But no matter which I select, it always displays as the more default higher-view. I...

    Another cart-boot CD game

    http://segaretro.org/Wonder_Library Found it looking for info on Flux. Are there any other cart-boot mega CD games besides these two? Makes you wonder if the entire first years run of Sega CD games couldn't have just been a CD audio disk and boot from the original genesis game. I wonder if we...

    Timecop demo disk

    How rare is the timecop demo? I was under the impression it was fairly rare, that's why it took so long to get the gooddealgames beta release. I was surfing through the stuff from one of the 32x auctioneers, and saw this...

    Flux for Mega-CD audio visualizer

    I thought I knew everything there was about the genesis/CD/32x, but just saw this today http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oswpqv22TIg A late stage EU release mega-cd "cart" that does audio visualizations for your CD music. Anyone else know about this? Comments say it works on NTSC without issue.
