    I’ve had issues as my kids have accounts on the switch. That meant I had to leave that as primary and the lite as secondary. I also have three accounts for different regions so it’s all ended up quite complicated. For now I’m just adding select games to the lite and using it worth physical games. Quite nice just to load the game(s) currently being played.
  4. when are you opening arcade club Sheffield? I love arcade club very much, thank you!
  5. A quick snap off my rough and ready CRT, 21 inch Sony trinitron I picked up for£40 and a variety of consoles and controllers. Also have a Mister FPGA sat out of shot. Very much gone down the rabbit hole as a result of picking up a modded xbox again a few months ago!, It's great for watching 80's cartoons on!
  6. Yeah I've ordered from misterfga - that's where i got my memory from. I've also ordered from a seller called TWINKYTWONKA on atari forums. He sells on ebay here: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/223525038478 Knock 12% off and you'll get the forums price. I use the Mister with an IO Board, I have used it with a hdmi to VGA adaptor too - there's a few cores that don't support the latter still and I bought the IO board as i thought i had a bad adaptor (but that was me being stupid). The IO board is cool if you want to output HDMI and VGA at the same time. But I'd definitely consider it a luxurt. As Shift says the 128MB ram is essential. The vga to scart lead is this one: https://amigastore.eu/en/512-mist-scart-cable-mist-db15-f-to-scart-tv.html https://lotharek.pl/productdetail.php?id=116
  7. This is very disjointed. The mood and feel of the show seems to vary each week. I agree with the comments above. Worst episode so far IMO.
  8. I tried the supreme and FB community builds and i think the last build was neighbourhood techies 32gb build from AP. Don't get me wrong, I did like it. Just when weighed up against all the options i already had (GBA with everdrive, vita) it didnt really warrant keeping it.
  9. So I ended up getting rid of my GPi, it was nice 'n all but performance wise I'm better off sticking with my modded VITA, the form factor is more comfortable too. Really nicely made bit of kit though its hamstrung by the pi zero.
  10. There’s one 128mb ram in stock at the link I posted above. I got it next day
  11. https://misterfpga.co.uk/product/mister-sdram-128mb-module/ in case anyone needs 128md SDRAM. Now I'm fully operational the MISTer is amazing, it really does feel worlds apart from the PI.
  12. Here you go: https://www.digikey.co.uk/products/en/development-boards-kits-programmers/evaluation-boards-embedded-complex-logic-fpga-cpld/796?k=de10-nano ships from us but price includes VAT so no issues with customs. I also had some discussions with Ricardo (retroshop mentioned up the thread). but decided to just buy the barebones board and pick up bits as i go along.
  13. yeah the interface and fast, simple and clean. I like that. I've tinkered with the genesis core but I've never been a fan tbh outside of the mega Turrican. For me I'm looking forward to firing up the NeoGeo and SNES cores to see what they can do but mainly Minimig. The prospect of having an accurate Amiga to tinker with is quite enticing and I've found emulating it on My shield and Pi's to be pain in the arse. I also love Bombjack so that was straight on there. I'm running this through HMDI > VGA > Scart rather than an I/O board so not all cores support that option yet. Core and roms have been installed and patiently waiting the memory....
  14. How exciting, my 128MB SDRAM arrives tomorrow. Not been able to fiddle much with this so far due ot the lack of memory. Mainly been busy testing different HDMI > VGA adaptors for compatibility. I do love how fast it is, not pretty but efficient. Just like me.
  15. I liked Hollow Knight but its a really really difficult game to pick up again if you take a break. It's very open structured and doesn't really lay many breadcrumbs as to where you are meant to go next.
  16. Nope, I’m not sure there is a good one, apart from rebuying the games and keeping the big switch as the primary. Also seems to want me to sign in to the eshop when i switch between consoles. Bit annoying.
  17. So I picked up a lite, its nice! I have 3 accounts on my switch linked to eshop accounts for different regions. I think the primary console thing buggers me up easily switching between switches (I have a big one too) as the non-primary console for the secondary eshop accounts won't be able to play them. Anyone know of a workaround?
  18. I'm using a fully loaded sumpreme build, I grabbed the gpi community build but feeling a bit lazy about having to load it with goodies - is it worth the effort? I do think the supreme build seems a bit overengineered with things like pointless background music (turned straight off)
  19. I've been to both, Bury a few times and Leeds just the once. Leeds - feels more like a seaside arcade as its bright and breazy, good selection of more modern arcades on the ground floor - a mix of music, shooters, racers and a few hydraulic machines. The second floor is the retro arcade and the third floor has PC's, VR and a few 2 player retroarcades. air hockey. Bury - Dingy (I preferred this as it feels more like an old city arcade). bottom floor has a better selection of pinball, better music games IMO (Beatmania IIDX!), networked pcs, more two player arcades, VR. The retro floor is much the same as Leeds. I think for retro games they are pretty equal, the website has a decent amount of detail and if you check out their facebook. For me, Bury is a pain to get to over Leeds but I'd prefer to put the effort in - they have Beatmania which is the big win for me but i also prefer the atmosphere of Bury. Both are super amazingly brilliant though, for a first time visit just pick the one which is easiest to get to.
  20. Maybe I’ll sit on it a little before building it then. I have a modded Vita that probably ticks more boxes than the GPi but i do so like the form factor of it.
  21. So you folks are happy with the GPI so far? Mine has just arrived but I'm waiting on a pi zero w to arrive. I've installed supreme v1.1 in readiness. I have a GB colour with everdrive so I'm hoping that this gives me a reason to sell those onwards.
  22. The difficulty in getting SNES running well is what is putting me off the GPI. Love the form factor thiugh. Half tempted to get one purely for retro handhelds.
  23. Cool, though I’ve just realised I need to get a us to uk plug adaptor so I can power the thing! Ill get the sd card prepped in the meantime.
  24. Woohoo! It's arrived. Just the DE10-Nano though, not ordered any add-ons as yet. I'm planning to wait till 128 boards are available, I'm guessing without the extra ram my options are limited?
