  1. All fascinating stuff, but please come back when someone can get me that Wii Star Wars Trilogy I can play on my Wii U
  2. I had it. I’d forget to play for a few days then dial the clock back but then sometimes I’d cock up and dial it back too far which seemed to balls it up
  3. battery had definitely gone as always had to reset them. Remembered now I was getting a black screen - coming on, disc would turn, but no picture. Sure I read on here something had gone which would need soldering (and bar installing a mod chip years ago I wouldn’t trust myself now!) while im here, I’ve never heard that about taking controllers in and out while the machine was switched off - always pulled controllers in and out worryingly!
  4. I’ve set up my ps2 mini with a crt near to my work desk and bought a bunch of light gun games that I never bothered with. id played Vampire Night once in the arcade and thought it was just hotd with vampires...and as the conversion was Namco I’d always presumed it was their game aping hotd...so got a surprise that it is actually a Sega game which thankfully made sense as the script and camp acting were completely from the world of hotd. Kinda enjoyed it for what it was but not as much fun as blowing holes in zombies. Nice settings and set pieces. got Ninja Assault to try next and Crisis Zone...would quite like Virtua Cop 2 but seems a bit pricey for it...and I’m sure Police 24/7 used to be dirt cheap back in the day of people offloading ps2 games so surprised that is comparatively pricey now too...certainly more than I’d be willing to spend
  5. My Dreamcast sadly gave up the ghost and pretty sure it’ll be that battery issue. If I got one of those kits I’d there someone who could install for me when this is all over?
  6. Aw man, that's incredible. She really does look disgusted. Uncomfortable viewing.
  7. What were you doing my neck of the woods last summer? Something fun?
  8. I’ve never seen Goldenballs but can’t see how that endgame translates to playing on the Wii i think i understand some reverse psychology of what happened there but can’t quite grasp it...but incredible hat has thrown up so much interest. Bless Carrot, I used to really like Carrot Confidential in the late 80s
  9. This is all very fascinating. Never given it any thought and would love to read more on this. I used to have a friend who made a living (and still does) entering competitions - professional comp winner and sells her winnings on. It’s a very bizarre world, but now runs her own blog and done a book probably realising there is more money in sharing her Midas touch to other people who want to do this.
  10. Mine all loaded with a variety of games now - thanks so much for your help! Been trying a few out tonight speeded up - was interesting playing The Muncher and Don Priestley's Popeye running in a less than treacle state (though maybe I made Popeye a bit too fast) Worked my may through Chapter 4 of the manual - I think some things are sinking in a bit, I get the wax on wax off nature of the manual but would have been good to something to apply each chapter to....or maybe it will all come together later....fingers crossed
  11. Ah, found a different old SD card USB dongle and it's showing on the Mac...so hopefully get the games in there. Will have to sift through and find the 128k games from amongst it all Looking forward to playing that fixed Werewolves Of London and finally finishing it
  12. Well, it's the sd card that has the operating system on it so I'd presume it was PC based? Dunno
  13. GAH, my work PC laptop isn't recognising the Spectrum Next sd card - inserted into micro sd slot, said it wasn't recognized and wanted to do something to it...tried it in a SD card holder, laptop beeping to say it knows something has been inserted but not showing the card...(told you I'm useless with all of this )
  14. Thanks - been told there are some good video tutorials (but I prefer text ) but might have a ganders at them
  15. Great, thanks Swainy! On the learning BASIC front - I've obviously got the Spectrum Next manual, a couple of games listings books (one of which starts off with working through keyboard inputs, joystick inputs, moving something, collision detection etc, one that Spectrum Coders Club from recent years I think) and a load of INPUTs in the loft but also heard the original Usbourne book would be a good one... Any particular recommendations for an aging dolt like me to grasp?
