  1. Just bought a 2nd DE10 Nano for my arcade machine. Originally, that’s all I wanted to use MiSTer for, using one for console stuff has really grown on me!
  2. Same here I have a modded NTSC unit for RGB and it looks... okay... but I also have a smoke grey PAL machine in my personcave connected to a CRT using S-Video and play NTSC games via an Everdrive 64 and it's a great solution.
  3. Even if you're happy with composite, some N64s support S-Video and the output quality is pretty good!
  4. Not all N64 models work with the basic RGB amp mod. The basic mod is pretty easy if you have the tools and can solder. Here's some of the stuff you can do - https://8bitmods.com/mod-kits/nintendo/nintendo-64/ Not much in stock right now.
  5. I keep trying to talk myself out of buying that damn DAC and the thing won't sell out!
  6. Much nicer than the RMC thing for sure, even if it doesn't look like a console. I hope MiSTer Addons get their European act together for different reasons though. I'm OBSESSED with getting a MiSTerCade when they come out!
  7. Looking at this, I realise I have a Spiderman beta on GD-R I should probably try to get archived. I got send the disk, but Bigben Interactive wouldn't send me the fucking system disk to boot it!
  8. Sweet! The remote flips it into RGB mode where the cable would not?
  9. https://irkenlabs.com/jamma-expander/introduction Another MiSTer to JAMMA solution from a guy in Norway. I missed out on this before it sold out, but at least now there's this OR a MiSTerCade to not be able to buy because it's out of stock during a global chip shortage.
  10. You control what cores you get via config files before you even run the first update.
  11. https://en.everybodywiki.com/List_of_GameCube_games_with_alternate_display_modes
  12. I used S-Video on my JPN Cube prior to getting component cables and the quality was pretty good. They removed S-Video support from the PAL model and added RGB!
  13. I imported a black Japanese versio through Play-Asia with Wave Race and Super Monkey Ball. Shortly after, I got Rogue Leader. It’s a great console, I still have one hooked up to the TV (and the original black console in a cupboard in my office)
  14. Not a bad idea. I want to start doing HDMI mods for consoles now so having *something* feels like a requirement!
  15. Is anyone's eyesight shit enough to need magnification? On anything 32bit, I'm having real trouble seeing things line up on SMD ICs with not really very find pitch so I want to either get a microscope or eyewear to stop me from making a mess of things. I broke a 1CHIP SNES and upon inspection with a magnifying glass, I bent some pins on the one chip but zooming with a phone isn't going to cut it to push them back into place!
  16. My "main" scaler is a RetroTink5x, but I decided to tweak the OSSC to correctly display DC stuff. Also using this as a soak test for the PicoPSU I put in this machine. Powerstone's fucking AWESOME.
  17. @Ninja Doctor - Yep, it is. This rules out GDEMU which wants 3.3V. I was thinking either the USB GD ROM or I'm trying to psyche myself into getting a MODE!
  18. Some boring mods today. I was hoping to get some Raphnet PCBs, but they got returned to sender for customs declaration reasons. Very annoying. So I soldered some PicoPSU bits and did battery holder and fan mods. Love the heat pipe cooling. Had to flip the board to remove the original fan though! ODE next on the list. And some double sided tape for the fan adapter board.
  19. Wasn't there a bug in early versions of MSR where it was always nighttime? The same one where you could cheese crazy amounts of kudos?
  20. Yeah, every time I see that image now, I hear that noodling jingle that starts off the music for that level!!
  21. A while ago I was playing Soukyugurentai, which splashes up future dates for each level and thought "Oh, that's this day". Turns out, it's ALWAYS "today" in 2051. The time's minutes seems to match too! I was playing it tonight and thought "Oh that's this day"! Can anyone think of other RTC usage in systems like the Saturn, GC or Dreamcast that come with a battery powered RTC?
  22. I finished this, but hated it towards the end. I used to dread the “put button in lift section” because I knew there’d be some cat or whatever there to extend the game with another zero fun section.
  23. Yep, it’s all fucking ridiculous right now.
