  1. You've done a great job with the magazine. I resubbed after many years away following a borrowed copy with you in charge. All the best!
  2. Is the home button what you're meant to press to turn it on in the dock? I always dock it then use the power button. The only time that does not work is when I have not turned it on at the plug socket. It usually automatically puts my TV on the right HDMI channel.
  3. Thanks, that could be it. I have intermittent noise on my phone line, the last time BT did the test it showed nothing wrong, but since moving to this house they have been out twice to fix the same issue. Apparently one of the cables to the exhange is just lying along a ditch... I'll give them another try when the noise comes back. Good to know it's not the down/up speed isn't the problem.
  4. I frequently get "connection unstable" and then disconnected in regular battles. Searching around this seems to be a fairly common issue with sub par broadband connections. Mine is 4Mbps down, 0.3Mbps up with latency at about 1000-1300 when I tested this morning. I've tried the advice I've found so far like increasing the MTU to 1400, putting the Switch on it's own 5Ghz network, port forwarding for but those things haven't solved it. Anyone here overcome the problem without a broadband upgrade? I suspect it's the latency which is the problem with it taking so long to get a ping to my exchange and back that Splatoon 2 thinks the Switch has disconnected.
  5. For what it's worth there's an online petition to Sony of Japan to release Denki Groove's music. Similar to the withdrawal of Judge Eyes by Sega they have removed their music from all the usual places. Maybe if Sony climb down then Sega could too. https://www.change.org/p/株式会社ソニー-ミュージックレーベルズ-電気グルーヴの音源の出荷停止-在庫回収-配信停止を撤回してください?recruiter=942603324&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=line&utm_campaign=psf_combo_share_initial.pacific_post_sap_share_gmail_abi.gmail_abi&utm_term=465a65beb1384f82893667fb0ee6798d&recruited_by_id=7e84a2d0-479d-11e9-8f7f-d9432bf28acd
  6. I wondered that but then there are warnings out there that progress will not transfer over to the full game...so surely that means you can save? https://www.vg247.com/2019/02/13/pokemon-lets-go-demo-eshop/
  7. My daughter started the demo last night but the save option is greyed out. Is there some areas you cannot save in? She's in a garden type place with lots of Pokemon and a few kids to talk to.
  8. I'm finding the equipment selection my biggest blind spot too, I can't kill anyone either but...I'm on PS if anyone wants to add someone who is surely worse than them! Valis358 Can't connect to servers now, it's so good I feel the need to install on my Xbox as a backup.
  9. I headed back into this last night. The best video guides are gaijin hunter's if you haven't found them already. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJMtpG0gw_U&list=PLDR3ta7VqKrwZGLq5fhTr0iKAa026YK5G&index=79&t=125s&frags=pl%2Cwn Online in MHW isn't scary at all. Outside of hunts the only area which is shared with other players is the gathering hub and I've never experienced any kind of griefing in the game. Turn off voice chat and just use shortcuts and stickers to communicate if you don't fancy talking to randoms, start with joining monster hunts you already know to begin with as the monsters are stronger in multiplayer.
  10. I use guides if I get stuck on a puzzle or just lost with where to go next. I'm less inclined to do that when I've paid for a game out of choice as opposed to it being on PS+. Trouble is once I use a guide once for a game it's easier the next time and I have even less patience with working things out myself. I started trying to work out Another World but kept hitting walls which would take me a whole evening to break through and I knew I would never see all of it without help. Iconoclasts is another one where I have used a guide recently, I repeatedly did not understand what the game was signposting me to hit on a boss or which mechanic/move to use to solve a puzzle. Proper cheat wise - the only recent example I can think of is the rewind, infinite lives etc. on the old games in Rare Replay. No regrets on using them to actually see the whole game through. I wish they would include those type of features as standard in the Switch NES online games. Cheat fails wise - I once tried to reset my C64 with a paper clip to enter a poke and put the C64 out of action for weeks (felt like months) whilst Boots replaced it. I did regret that.
  11. Ah right that makes sense then. I was expecting to climb through when I first tried it.
  12. I enjoyed this way more than I expected to since the only Resident Evil I have enjoyed in the past was 4. Looks great and I didn't come across any jump scares (at least up to where I got to) which always feel cheap . I wasn't sure if the press X on a window and the item menu comes up thing was me not understanding some RE convention. Not quite good enough for me to pre-order but has sparked a renewed interest in RE.
  13. @gizmo1990 the Polish PSU arrived last weekend by UPS on time and well packaged. Only got around to trying it out this weekend and it works fine for the 64C and even got my breadbin further than I remember it getting, with the correct start up screen at first then a few seconds later going to all blank blue or scrambled characters. My only issue is that the sheath on the end which goes into the C64 pulled back a bit when I disconnected it so not great build quality there. Not worth returning it for but I'll contact them and see if there is a quick fix or some money back. I'm happy that I can now test out my games but pretty pricey for what it is. There is some comment on it from lemon64 too, generally a thumbs up but with a comment that the output may be too low for power hungry add ons if I'm reading it correctly. Can't seem to link to the post directly but this is the text: "Glad you got it working. That looks like a decent PSU that you bought, never seen it before. My only reservation is that it has 2.0 amps of power on the 5 Volt line instead of 3 so as to cover the REU. Fine for a stock C64 and most things you plug in to it as the standard 64c was 1.7A IIRC. Not sure how it would hold up if you added a RAM expansion or other more power hungry devices. The Heavy duty PSU that came with the 1764 REU was rated for 2.5 or 3.5 amps depending on the model they gave you. Who knows it may work fine with an REU. The way I see it, if you are going to go through the trouble of building a replacement PSU, don't skimp on the power."
  14. Thanks for the info @gizmo1990. I've decided to give the Polish one a go, the ebay feedback seems ok and on the basis that as an ebay seller you don't seem to have much option than to give the buyer their money back if a complaint is raised I thought it was worth the risk. I'm also keen to get one sorted before I break from work for Christmas so I can tinker around with it whilst on leave. It should arrive at the beginning of December so I'll let you know here how it goes.
