Re: Q re Megadrives, SLG's and modified consoles

Now, I'm not an expert. I attach links to some pics of the insides of my modded Asian MD console. What do you think? Does it look "ok" or does it look dodgy?

Re: Q re Megadrives, SLG's and modified consoles

Thanks, but it's a Retro Gaming Cables RGB Scart cable that I'm using now! It actually made no difference whether I used that cable or the one supplied with the modified console, which was also specced at being RGB Scart. I do not know about manually adjusting the SLG to the signal. Nothing was ment...

Re: Q re Megadrives, SLG's and modified consoles

Thanks. What does MVS stand for please? I suspect the modded MD was bodged too. My new (old) Jp console is superb in every way, but if only I could get scanlines in the display as well. Do you think it might be an issue with the SLGBox and Scart input, which is what I think? Although that doesn't ex...

Q re Megadrives, SLG's and modified consoles

I'm sorry if this post is a little bit long-winded, but it's a long story and I need to get it off my chest. I'll try to condense it as much as possible. Got multiple consoles. Heard about SLG-3000 and SLG-in-a-box. Bought SLG-in-a-box (SLGBox) for multiple consoles and tested. Got it working with P...

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

Couple more ebay buys: Curse for the Megadrive, and Vampire Savior for Jp Saturn.
Any of you played Curse? I hadn't heard of it until I saw some YT footage.

Vampire Savior looks very classy!

TF IV & Gynoug to trade

I've got PAL copies of Thunderforce IV and Gynoug for MD, both in nice condition with manuals and good cases. I'd really like to trade them for Japanese versions of the same games. Anyone interested?

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

Few bits had following my Saturn purchase. Also very pleased with Monster World Collection and the Sega Classics collection. Didnt realise the Sega Classics Collection consisted of many of the SegaAges releases. I thought it was another bundle of ports from the Megadrive. The NTSC version has Alien...

Jp MD Console wanted

Hi all. Anyone got a spare Japanese MegaDrive console they might want to part with? MUST be original Japanese (not Asian) HAA-2510 model. Not looking for a region-modded PAL machine (I've got one of those and want to do some comparisons). Console only required - don't need cables or controllers or a...

Player's Guides in mags

Hi all. Inspired by my recent purchase of X-Men vs Street Fighter, I was reminded of the very useful "Player's Guides" that used to be published for games in the old games magazines. I seem to remember using an Alien 3 one when that came out for the Megadrive, and one for The Immortal too. Obviously...

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

Jp Sat - X-Men vs Street Fighter (boxed with 4mb ram cart), and just ordered X-Men: Children of The Atom for the same system!
XM v SF is just brilliant! :D
