  1. PDF is more my thing, but converting all these file types is a little fiddly. I currently don't have any adobe PDF software so mainly use this Free Convert website to convert my files. Main problems are either getting errors, max file size is just over 1GB and I think you have a limit of 20mins conversion each day (for free). You can also 'subscribe' but that's a curse I'm not wanting to catch.
  2. I'm still the weird kid that converts any .cbz or .cbr files I find into .pdf files Don't ask! I just prefer reading and accessing em this way
  3. Not a full set but I got a few from here -usual place for most stuff it seems.
  4. Anyone predict when they will announce us being able to buy the PSVR2 or pre-order it? got a feeling it will be made and sold like how the PS5
  5. Loving mine so far and yes it has surprised how well the controller works. Would be aces if it were possible to have the added games off a USB stick to have thumbs and info etc like the pre-installed games? Customising menus is a pet love of mine in my older years But that's just a silly wish.
  6. I've found some files I did take but not many.. mainly product/shopping shots, so I haven't uploaded them.. but any I find that have people on it I will. Mainly just incase either you are in the frame or someone you know. After all, this was nearly 20 years ago Also found (although still I've unsure which year I attended) Classic Gaming Expo UK in Croydon on 24th and 25th of July 2004 I obviously don't take credit for the images.
  7. Thanks sdaonline, does look like I was at the 2004 event as I don't remember most of this - similar it may be.
  8. So was it 2004? I still have to see if I've still got the photos I took myself but I was amazed to see Matthew Smith. Was super chuffed that he was there and stood up and did a presentation. He was so nervous!! To be fair I'd of been too, especially as he'd been out of the public eye for years. If I remember, Retro Gamer had started and was on shelves but hopefully someone here could correct me on that one So I don't remember or know if they did a write up? Crikey Merman, if you don't mind could you root around for that DVD footage if you have it? If you do have it, hopefully it contains stuff that you wouldn't mind sharing.. That was my main point of this post tbh... as my memory what it used to be and that kind of stuff might unearth some memories. I remember having a fab day.. even though I went on my own
  9. Does anyone remember the Retro gaming event that was held in Croydon, Fairfield Halls, or better still have movies/pictures of the day. Only thing is at the moment I'm not entirely super sure of the year, I think it was 2004. I do know it was the 1st of it's kind in Croydon back then. Especially amazing for me because I live this end of the country as all the amazing shows etc seem to be further up the UK nowadays. There was a tons of very cool nerd stuff there, along with lots of special guests.Off the top of my head... Matthew Smith Archer MacLean Billy Mitchell Steve Weatherill Andrew and Philip Oliver I will have to dig out any pics or movie files I have but I'm sure I spotted one of the Pickford brothers there There were live talks which were super interesting, but I'm struggling to find any recorded media from the weekend. Obviously things were a little different back then with tech, so phone didn't have the storage and quality they do now I'm sure I remember some folks walking around with video cameras.
  10. Availability of these new fangled PS5's is still a sh1t show. Sigh. Anyone got any recent tips on how to snag them a PS5 each without being on the inter web for hours/days at a time? Like I did a year ago to get mine!
  11. Best way to get this? cheapest deal (download) or Gamepass? oh and if Gamepass anyone know the best deal there is atm?
  12. This is neat! Got Retroarch up and running and spent lots of time adding and tweaking game but ultimately breaking them so they either don't load etc .Was wondering if there was a single file/s that can be overwritten that would set up some of the important stuff? or isn't that possible with Retroarch on the Xbox Series X?
  13. Sorry guys I'm stuck I'm a Mac user and been trying to follow this >> Guide: Retro Emulation on the Xbox Series S/X and Xbox One by Retro Game Corps. He also wrote wrote this helpful guide. Very understandable I thought, but then I get stuck when it's useful for me to map a network drive and just wondering what the Mac method basically does? He explains... For Mac users, the process is similar (use Chrome for best results): Open Finder and in the top Menu Bar, navigate to Go > Connect to Server (or type CMD+K) Type in the address are follows: smb://xbox/DevelopmentFiles Click the “+” button to save the connection Enter your credentials I've tried this and it seems to start to connect BUT.. dunno what I key in for NAME and PASSWORD? I've tried every log in I think is relevent but gives me an error saying 'There was a problem connecting to server...' box. Could it be my network? firewall? or what? Sorry fellas is there a Mac genius here would could solve this world problem for me?
  14. Anyone know the best site which has a very comprehensive (updating) list of PS4 >> PS5 compatibility and what if any, enhancements have been added to the PS5 version? I've lost the link and when I try and find it again I get a squillion Google results and nothing close to the site I found. I say I found, but I'm sure I found the link from somewhen here on one of these posts. Anyone?
  15. So basically I've no way of getting one of these Ps5 thingies or an XboxSeriesX wotsits at launch???
