  1. Xbox, PS3 and PS4 controllers work pretty well.. ? Otherwise competition pro usb is nice, microswitched and cheap.
  2. It's always been the original Star Wars arcade machine for me... Unless I somehow land a fortune I'll never be able to afford the 30 grand or so for a real sit down one, so I instead just backed this Kickstarter! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tstick/grs-arcade-flight-yokeusb?bid=9bf50183d505c830bf056cec507f5786 ..the idea being that I'll now have to build a whole arcade cab to go with it Obviously the other half knows nothing about this yet..
  3. Thanks for that - so I guess I'll wait until she's accepted the request then and go from there.. Bit of a pain that I can't just buy some kind of voucher/code and let her apply that later.. like at xmas!
  4. Help me please, this is all very confusing... My daughter would like the Sims 4 game for Xmas, and it's reduced at the moment (75% off) so I'd like to buy it. I have a shitty EA origin account, and have sent her a request to be added as a teenager account, but how do I buy the game as a present for her? If I just buy it now and have it listed against my account will I be able to gift it to her account later? thanks for any advice
  5. I went for one of these from Jei - really great little adapters. Very impressed with the picture and sound quality via HDMI for this price, can't fault it
  6. eagerly waiting to see the result of this... when do we get to see the display??

    Aphex Twin

    It really is a cool venue, reminded me of illegal 90s warehouse raves.. even had the leaky roof, puddles and rust

    I was at this.. absolutely mental night
  9. Battle zone is great fun, like being in Tron. Also a really nice one to ease you into VR
  10. I'm really struggling to get anything running at a playable speed on retroarch MAME.. even the simplest of 80s titles have choppy sound and run dog slow. Has anybody managed to get any ROMs working well? Just to have the likes of ghosts n goblins, rastan, bubble bobble etc. would be great.
  11. I get this.. playing REVII with the VR and Sony headphones on is the absolute worst, but is really the only way to play it as that's the whole idea! (brown pants) I won't let myself play it unless it's with the headphones, which is probably why it's been sat gathering dust since first play through I always thought from the start that all VR games should incorporate a quick 'pause and look outside' option.. so you see and hear within the room through the PS camera. No need to take the thing of every time the floor creaks then
  12. I managed to get myself a nice condition FAT Vita off facebook and have modded it - nice and easy with that guide mentioned above! So far I've installed HomeBrewBrowser and RetroArch, I have one game working so far with MAME Now I really want to build a collection of my fave ROMS for my old consoles but I'm struggling to find some ROMS legit anywhere (especially Nintendo) Anybody care to help a forumite out?
  13. I've had two as well. The first I lent to a 'mate' at work who then moved away and forgot to return it... The second I bought last year from FB Marketplace - seems to be quite dodgy as the screen has a tendency to go mental flickering about every now and then. Sometime it 'sorts itself out' though, not sure what's wrong tbh but it's a pain in the arse. I love the Vectrex, have done since it was first out when we we far too poor for me to have one as well as my 'proper' computer (I had a Ti994a yay!). Anyway, any advice on fixing the screen flickering would be gratefully received as I'd love to get it working again.
  14. my poor brain doesn't understand how that should work either, surely if the piece existed in the real world, physics would not allow it to rotate around in that space...
  15. I just came in to say this is wonderful
  16. It made a pretty good PC webcam with the right driver...
  17. Ta This place has seriously damaged my bank balance this week!
  18. I love this, have a warm spot for both of them having grown up with their stuff most of my life. In fact I'm having a bit of a Bob moment recently - I'm ploughing through the Athletico podcasts ridiculously quickly.. he's become my Alderman
  19. add a real-debrid account ..thank me later (EDIT: thanks Gari)
  20. I just bagged me a space harrier! Wish I hadn't missed out on the lovely outrun though!!
