They also had a few demo games created by students from the loca...

Thanks for the responses guys, appreciated. Update - It would appear the TV can support upto 1080i, however, just changed the res down to 720p in the One's settings and appears to be ok now (fingers crossed). Although still dosen't answer the question why it appears in 1080p res when I switch the ca...

Megadrive PSU alternative help

Picked up a generic PSU from the car boot this morning as it looked like it would fit a Megadrive. Output is 10v and 1.2a unfortunately the tip is the wrong polarity, therefore I'm thinking cut the tip and solder a new tip as Maplins sell them for a few quid. Question? Would this work and any helpfu...

Re: What did you buy at the carboot today ??

First Carboot sale for me this year, a wii bit chilly but I braved it.

Linux 1.0 for Playstation 2 - £1.
Tomy 3D Sky Attack game - £1.50.

Nothing else much of interest, just the usual PS2 PES/Fifa .

Happily accept disc only as I only need it to complete my 'Crash Bandicoot, Action Pack' I bought recently but missing said game. Bomberman Hardball. Crazy Taxi Metal Slug 3.

Re: I think I got a really good deal!!

There is a letter code on the barcode label that could help you figure it out. If the usually miserly buying practices are anything to go by then it probably says something like KS.HH , KH.HH or even SK.HH if they were being a bit more generous. Sadly some of the letter codes are different in some ...

I think I got a really good deal!!

Passing my local 'Crack Converters' on Saturday I noticed in the window they had a Vita with 3 games (Rayman, Fifa Football & Golf) for £180. Now I don't normally buy bundles as there's usually only one, maybe two titles that's of interest, however, I popped in and asked if the games were interchang...

Re: Always from left to right?

You can also add Pacland to the list as each level scrolls left to right and the return journey right to left.
