  1. I believe the Mark III has the same output as the Japanese Master System. The pinout is the same as a Megadrive 1, so you can use a Megadrive cable but the image will be dark (although I haven't tried this myself). I recently bought an RGB SCART cable from Retro Acces (this one) and it works great with a bright image with my JPN Master System. Their ordering system is a bit annoying though, they only take orders at a specific time every Sunday. Can't help you with the power supply sorry!
  2. Definitely want to give it a try, but don't yet own a switch. Do have the Playstation and WiiWare sequels to get through though.
  3. Had some free time over the holidays so finally managed to complete the Japanese version of Blaster Master (Metafight). It's a great game , but the lack of saves/passwords makes it much harder than it needs to be. Next up is Bucky O'Hare and maybe Zelda on the FDS.
  4. It's the same tv (a crt, so shouldn't be any issues) with the same cables, so the problem is definitely with the console.
  5. Powered up my Mega Drive today to find that the picture flickers and has some glitches. Is it likely to be bad capacitors? I hooked up a spare Mega Drive and while it works fine, the sound is a lot quieter. It that likely to a capacitor issue too?
  6. It's now possible to hack any region of DSi that has flipnote installed. (DSi XLs have it preinstalled) Which means you don't need to worry about the region lock on DSi enhanced games as it'll make your system region free. There's a guide here: http://dsi.cfw.guide Now I can play Alice in Wonderland on my Japanese DSi XL
  7. Have been playing Metroid Prime Hunters recently and completed it today. It's very different to the other games in the series but I found it pretty enjoyable in it's own right. Although I wish they hadn't recycled the bosses quite so much. Probably play through Okamiden next, but I've also got Elite Beat Agents on the way as well as a few other as of yet unplayed games.
  8. Anyone good with repairing a Mega CD? It's a Japanese model 1. I replaced the drive belt, but when the tray closes it opens again about a second later without the drive spinning. Seems to be the same problem as number 10 here: http://www.sega-16.com/forum/showthread.php?22027-Sega-CD-systems-repair-thread But the video isn't available anymore and I'm not how I should be adjusting the gear/tray switch. Any pointers appreciated.
  9. Picked up a DSi XL, seems pretty nice compared to the DS Lite. Also picked up Super Speed Machines. Haven't played it much yet, but it seems like it'll be quite fun. Although it's obviously a budget title. Is there any way to play DSi enhanced imports on a DSi yet? With an action replay type device or a softmod? I want to pick up the Alice in Wonderland game, but it was never released in Japan so it won't work on my Japanese DSi. At least it will work on my DS lite.
  10. Closer to $100. Everything in that store is very overpriced.
  11. The Gameboy color can't be modded to have a backlight. You going to need to get a GBC clone syster or a GBA AGS-101
  12. I'm based in Fukuoka and it's very much the same here. All of the good recycle shops have closed down and any game stores that have managed to survive have stopped selling retro stuff. Even some of the Book Offs have closed down! My last good find at Book Off was Burning Rangers complete for 950 yen, not an amaziing deal, but it tends to go for 2000+.
  13. Nintendont seems to have Classic Controller support, so if you load it through there rather than the disc channel you should be able to use it (I haven't tried it myself through) I really should pick one up and use it for any games that use the d-pad. The Gamecube's d-pad is far too small.
  14. Is RetroArch the best choice for Mame? Are there instructions for building the Mame core somewhere? Or somewhere I can download the latest core? The one I'm using now is a bit old I think.
  15. The Gamecube player has real GBA hardware so it's going to be the most accurate and you can get a much better picture quality as I think the advance player only outputs composite. If you can play homebrew on your GC, the Game Boy Interface is supposed to be the best way to play, but I haven't tried it myself.
