  1. Yes it should. I run via multi man but on a BC ps3. But I believe there is a toggle not to use the native hardware and emulate in software instead.
  2. I suppose it could be isolated to COTM because it was an early title. But it was so ruinous - forcing me to save scum my way through that boss - that it’s put me right off. Any future play through of Aria or Harmony will be on a DS that’s for sure. It’s not everything on reflection. I’ve been playing GBA Super Ghouls and Ghosts on PSP without any noticeable issues. Though I’m so poor at it I’ve not seen very far into the game.
  3. Not to rain on the love in here. But GBA emulation is far from perfect. I’ve played circle of the moon to completion and at points the frame rate dips almost made me abandon it. The 2 headed dragon being a particular low light with what must have been an FPS in the single digits.. I’ve subsequently been put off embarking on GBA action games on the PSP just in case I get a similar experience some way down the line. Plays the hell out of Fire Emblems and Advance Wars of course and as far as I’m concerned the PSP go form factor is pretty much perfect. A truly pocketable portable and the ps1 emulation performance and library is a huge plus.
  4. @grounded_dreams I've not done it personally but you should be able to run just from the usb once you have created it from the image you've downloaded. You'll probably need to remove your sd card or it will boot from that by default. You may have to explicitly tell your pi to boot from usb though. See this link for an explanation of whether you need to change anything (model dependent) and how to do it. https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/hardware/raspberrypi/bootmodes/msd.md
  5. Blimey! All I've got in my shed is some old paint and a plastic mower. In answer to the original question - I manage by modding older gen hardware so I don't need all the disks and boxes. A OG XBox, Back compat 60Gb PS3, XBox 360, Wii and PS4 cover pretty much most things and all will fit in a regular sized media cabinet. Given its looking like the next gen consoles will all have backward compatibility baked in, I can't envision it getting any more cluttered either.
  6. @Jazz Glands I have the pound hd link hdmi cable. Online reviews indicate it’s not perfect but they are far more discerning/fussy than me because I’ve found it to be excellent. No issues with lag. Image looks clean and games like soul calibur 2 at 720p look great. Comparison https://youtu.be/c1-MVEy3Y8Q I got mine via amazon - though looks like only 3rd party sellers now. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07D19QQHW/ Incidentally the hdmi footage in the review linked looks a little more washed out than the image I’m getting.
  7. Yes please! My sf iv stick can then be used on Final Burn Alpha. Will pm.
  8. I’ve had a quick go. Works like a dream. Really need a case to tidy up all the cables, but functionally I’m very impressed. As attractive as I think a crystal OG Xbox is - this means I can now tuck it away in a cupboard. Now to convince my old Uni alumni to come round to play some 4 player Top Spin and Mashed. As as for input lag - Soul Caliber 2 is as responsive as I remember. So it’s pretty imperceptible (+4ms in tests if I remember correctly). Steel battalion with a keyboard add on will be interesting. But that’s for another day.
  9. Also - I finally got round to pulling the capacitor out. No acid on the board but it was leaking a little. And it’s surprisingly potent stuff. My fingers were stinging pretty bad after I’d taken it out.
  10. That’s great to hear. Mines in the post so probably on a container ship from Oz at this very moment.... Still - great to hear it works as advertised. As it’s just the board I’m going to need a case from somewhere.
  11. Oh yes. No problems there. All other console devices connected are nice and responsive.
  12. I've recently set up a pi 3b for emulation and whilst the ease of setting one up using a pre built image and sheer versatility of the overall solution is very welcome - one of the things which I am noticing is input lag (at least thats what I think it is). Aria of Sorrow on GBA and Devil Crush on PCE don't feel as snappy as I'm used to (noting that I've only ever played Devil Crush via the Wii VC - never on original hardware). And Parapper is, frankly, impossible. Its not a fatal blow as there are retro games which don't rely on timing to be enjoyed - but I am worried that I will get a false impression of titles which I am not familiar with. It also feels as though its worse than emulation solutions which I have experienced elsewhere. For example GBA being emulated on the PSP. Is this a well trodden issue? And can I do anything about it (changing TV and/or using original hardware notwithstanding).
  13. Was modding one for a mate who sourced it from CEX. Didn't look new so I presume its been reset in some manner - though I've never done it myself.
  14. I've recently done this following a different guide. For step 4 its worth noting the following in relation to running Letterbomb. If you don't have any messages/memos already on your Wii you won't see the Letterbomb. Its spelt out in this guide: https://www.lifewire.com/how-to-install-the-wii-homebrew-channel-2498513 "If you have a brand new Wii, this reportedly won't work until there is at least one message in your message board. If your Wii is new and you have no messages, create a memo on your Wii before going on to the next step. To create a memo, go to the Wii Message Board by clicking the envelope in the little circle on the lower right corner of the main menu, then click on the create message icon, then the memo icon, then write and post a memo." Once you create the memo and quit out of your messages and then return you will see the Letterbomb and can continue with the hack. @dumpster May be worth updating the original post to include this.
