  1. Thank goodness, I thought this was all just me and the whole world had grasped it. It's not normally much of a problem until a QTE pops up and then I ultimately fail the first time round.
  2. It looks like what you need is the 4 Play adaptor that is currently not listed. You could get the Gamer-Pro Jr kit. But it is supplied as a DIY kit and some assembly and soldering skills are required. https://bliss-box.net/store/Gamer-Pro-jr-Kit-includes-5-cables-p102775011 The site doesn't make it easy to work out what is what though...
  3. It depends on why you want to use your original controllers. Raphnet do a variety of controller adaptors that will handle different controllers to USB if you just love the idea of using your original hardware, or if its just the Nostalgia/Memory muscle of the form factor then 8bitdo SNES/NES and Retrobit Megadrive would be the cheaper option. Alternatively on my Pi setup I use the PS4 Hori mini controller which I find to be excellent for all retro consoles and can be picked up quite cheaply. Even B&M Bargains were selling them at one point.
  4. I see what you mean about that Blissbox site. I think bplus probably has the best idea, between 8bitdo and retrobit it would probably be cheaper to buy modern recreations of the controllers instead of buying USB adaptors for each. Which pads are you particularly keen to get working?
  5. I'm sure I am missing something really simple here, however my VF5 US is not displaying full screen. It has black borders all around. How can I change this? I have had a look in the settings of the game but nothing stands out as being a solution.
  6. Talking of Glitches certain versions of In the Hunt will not load if a controller is attached to Player 1. I just had this issue and thought it might be a Fenrir issue. But if you select the game and then remove the controller till it loads it works fine. Apparently this is an issue that happens with earlier versions of the disc version too.
  7. I have also never played Rabbit, until yesterday when I put right that wrong. And I never really noticed any game breaking glitches or slowdown using a fenrir, however the game itself was slightly disappointing as it commits my personal fighting game cardinal sin. The hits seem to lack real impact. Sometimes the hits were silent, sometimes they had a nice solid hit sound. But this was inconsistent. So hits felt light and not satisfying like they should. A nice curiosity but not one I think I will be going back to a lot.
  8. While you are looking why not pop them on your Satiator and give them a whirl. I was lucky to be a Saturn fan when it was the latest cutting edge tech and still have all the games I bought back then.
  9. Oh yes, Lobotomy Software performed wonders with Exhumed (Powerslave in the USA) So much so that Sega handed them the ports of Quake and Duke Nuke Em 3d to produce. All 3 are amazing showcases of what the Saturn could do in the right hands. Its a shame that the Playstation owning majority never took notice, and its a bigger shame they closed not long after.
  10. Lets be honest we all love buying the same game twice. Especially different versions of said game.
  11. What kind of games do you like? If you like 90's arcade style titles then there probably is no better console. Yes you could emulate using the actual arcade roms these days but it goes back to the "best version of a game" thread. And I prefer ports with all the extras they bring.
  12. So I set the brook into Arcade Mode and fired up SFZ3 to give the D Pad a bit of a work out. And its just OK. It doesn't feel as good as a Saturn Model 2 pad nor any of the 8bitdo recreations. I found diagonals difficult to pull off consistently. Especially jump right (When facing right). But most of the moves came out about the same as on other pads. I did find it rubbing my thumb though, maybe due to its smaller size. So the OCTA pad, overall a bit Meh.
  13. OK I have the plus version and the error I was making was not switching the Brooke into 3D pad mode correctly by pressing View/Y. Once this has been done it works great. The only caveat now is that accelerate is on RT. Which isn't by default a shoulder button. Which is fine. None of the shoulder buttons are analogue. So I guess the takeaway is it's probably better with just a regular Xbox pad, for Sega Rally if you have the Wingman SD.
  14. OK I tried this and while it does work as a digital pad but the analogue stick is also picked up as a digital pad. Yes I can steer in Sega Rally but it lacks the finesse of true analogue. I don't know if this is because of the way the Saturn 3D pad originally worked (Switchable) and if this is something patchable by Brooke, or if I just need to hold down a secret combination of buttons when turning on. So its only OK and not worth buying as a nice analogue Saturn controller.
  15. It depends what you plan to do with it. If you would like to install a Fenrir, bear in mind that only 20pin versions are currently available. It always used to be hit and miss but now if there is a picture of the back of the Saturn you can enter the serial number on the website and it will tell you if that model is compatible or not. https://shop.fenrir-ode.fr/en/products/fenrir Fenrir installation is a doddle by the way, no soldering required.
