Re: Craziness In the retro community

We know he has multiple accounts, like his 'brother' and others that would only ever post to back him up when he was called out for some error or inaccuracy in what he said rather than accept the correction.

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Good price on that Prin. Had a look at these in Smyths a few weeks ago, look decent for the money and ripe for conversion, especially the SF2 cab since it has more sticks and button options than the other models. Be interesting to see inside one if you don't mind posting pics, to get an idea of inte...

Re: Retro Gaming Spotlight: Scramble

Although it wasn’t ported to any major consoles, Scramble was a massive success upon its release It might be stretching the definition of 'major', but it did get an excellent official port to the most unlikely of systems - the Vectrex. Surprisingly, the conversion from raster to vector display work...

Re: Best version of Battle Chess or even chess game in general?

Battle Chess and its sequels/updates are on GoG: https://www.gog.com/game/battle_chess_special_edition Bit pricey at 9 quid, but at least you know it will run. iirc there was a Star Wars chess game in a similar vein, though my memory is vague, I could be making that up. Deviating slightly, have you ...

Do I get my nintendo points for buying a switch
No. Maybe something else that will come with the Pro?

You should get points for any games that come with it though.

Re: Subscription help

I've not read my issue 200 yet, but I tend to sell my old issues when I'm done with them, and so would be interested if there's a thread on here where it's permitted to sell back issues and hence avoid ebaying them :) Here: https://forum.retrogamer.net/viewforum.php?f=19 Read the AUP though.

Re: *help please* Outrun screen shots

There are lots of hearts in Heart Attack mode in Outrun 2 (aka Outrun 2006 aka Outrun SP aka Outrun Coast to Coast). I don't think there's specifically an ending like that though.

Most if not all of those retro Data East games are currently under £2 each if anyone has any nostalgia for em.
@ALK. Where they point and click games
They point and click games are on the Switch eshop, dere are loads of good wans for very low prices. Thimbleweed Park is a great starting point.

Re: Are these knockoff disks? 3.5" Floppy PC Games

I reckon they're the public domain/shareware releases from a PD library.

Since you have an address, you could probably trace which one.

That would appear to be it, a Tec Toy release once they had the licence to knock out cheap Sega stuff in Brazil.

Underwhelming for you! I'm sick of the sight of Smash Bros announcements cluttering up my Switch news feed, I can't abide the game.

@learnedrobb. What's a switch pro, what does the pro bit meam
It doesn't mean anything as it doesn't exist, it's just a rumour. Pro has just been taken from other things, like the PS4 Pro, to indicate this mythical beast you want to know about.

Re: SNES multi out not working

I'd agree it's probably the SNES at fault here, but with only one system to test against there's a small chance it isn't.

I've a vague memory there's some minor variation in the types of cables that can cause an issue, an inline resistor or something that may or may not be present.

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

This was my point, the rumour has persisted for some time, but it remains rumour. There are no factual announcements or leaks of any significant change to the lineup other than the existing efficiency revision to the launch hardware and the release of the Lite. Yet he asks when the 'new' Switch will...
