    The Emulator Thread

    Thought I’d give an update on my experience with the nettop. Gave Lakka a spin last night. Results were patchy but encouraging. Rom compatibility and discovery was limited from the images I have already which is annoying as I’ve seen them work on other stand alone emulators. Figuring out why (naming convention, format, compression?) for each instance will be painful. Hence the pi image route is looking attractive right now. Though I presume that i can still use lakka if I can source and expand a pi image and simply pull the games out as they will be in the right format? Unable to test 32bit gen performance. PsOne, N64 and up didn’t even run. Turns out this may be due to running the 32 bit version of Lakka. Either that or the embedded video driver has some sort of issue with 3D rendering for my machine configuration So I’ll have to wipe and start again with the 64 bit version and see if that fixes things. On the plus side of things what did work was great (just neo geo + gba). Playing GBA Aria of Sorrow on a 360 Arcade stick felt great for example. And the positives have been enough to make me feel it’s worth persevering. So I’ll be reinstalling and trying again tonight. Recalbox also looks very similar so I can try that if I continue to have problems with the 3D console emulation.

    Hmmmm.. food for thought. Thanks for the offer. Looks like I should give Lakka a spin first and see what its like. No harm in doing so really. Plus it looks like its got Dual Shock 3 support out of the box and I've got a spare one of those knocking about somewhere.

    Alas its a nettop - so tiny case, no PCIE slot etc. - so it will be using the onboard graphics only. Still viable? One thing that is attractive from the Pi point of view is the availability of images which are just download/build and everything is right there. Is there anything similar/recommended on the x86 side of things?

    The Emulator Thread

    Maybe I should post in ATF but I’ll try here first. Ive got a few spare Celeron based nettop PCs after migrating family XBMC solutions to nVidia Shield TVs. Specs are: celeron 1007u 1.5Ghz 2gb ram 500gb hdd One has a windows license. Is there any scope for repurposing it as a retro emulator machine? One that can be hooked up to a big tv? Or will I get better results/run into less bother selling and going down the raspberry pi route?
  5. Is this the MW2 back compact thread now? Joy and despair for me playing this over the last couple of days. Felt good getting back into the Attack helicopter after such a long hiatus. But 50% of the lobbies I hit have had some sort of hack going on. You would have thought that would have subsided after so many years. But I guess it’s nostalgia hacking now?

    Nintendo Switch Homebrew Thread

    The switch is hacked - but that also means shared hardware like the nvidia shield tv is vulnerable in the same way Could this open the way to see switch games running on that ? They share the same/very similar guts after all. Pretty sure there's tonnes of switch owners who'd love access to the GeForce Now store too.....

    Anyone considering the Hori 6 button fight pad for this as sold by Argos may want to reconsider. http://www.argos.co.uk/product/7455407 This had serious issues establishing a connection for me (though my mini was set up next to my wireless router). Not only that - it was less than responsive on the diagonals. I found executing endless fireballs far more accurate on the stock pad. Not worth the £30 being asked in my opinion.

    Titanfall 2

    There's a thread with one in the Bargains section. Ignore me false alarm.

    I wish I knew. Maybe they were part of the Beta (I certainly wasn't).

    Indeed. I'm also after a psn discount code for TF2 if anyone has one begging.

    I think that is in fact no mans tart.

    Sony PSP Appreciation Thread

    If memory serves its simply a case of dropping 3 files into the right directory. Then running one. Remains soft modded until you do a full restart (sleep is fine). At which point you run the re-modding file which is one of the 3 files. I did it a while back so things may have changed. But I doubt it's got harder.

    I've just moved to the android version of this after changing phones and its almost twice the size of the iOS equivalent running up about 2.6Gb! Less than impressed with that. Its a card game FFS.

    Well I'm with the plebs down at 13, but I'm yet to see a new expansion card on ladder apart from the jeweled scarab. The meta seems to have slowed considerably though.
