Re: For the mag: Commodore 64 memories

My most vivivd memory of a C64 related nature was when I was about 8 or 9 and I was high-score chasing on Ghost'N'Goblins on our Family 64/128.. I was so intent and focussed on finishing the game for my first time while at the same time beating my oldest brothers longest standing high score (this wa...

Re: Visit to Funspot last Nov + some other game related phot

Just for reference - Obviously my scores arent "out of this world" - but put them in there just to show I had a crack - safe to say Billy Mitchell's, John Stoodley's and Steve Wiebe's (and quite possibly some of you lot in this forum) monstrous marathon scores are safe :)

Re: The RGF Shmup League - Game #10: In The Hunt

ok, this might be a stupid question - but how do I turn auto-fire on in MAME when I am playing this brutally challenging nugget of bytes? I am using MAME version 0.91.0.0
Do I need an arcade-stick with auto-fire functionality hooked up through USB to get auto-fire?

Re: Arcade Stick Reccomendations for my PS3 + PS2

The HRAP 2 SA was a great stick, good luck finding one now though. Much higher quality than a TE. hey speedlolita- less than 24hours after you wrote that post above someone listed a Hori Arcade Pro2 SA on Ebay Australia... some 25hours later I bought it =) cannot wait to give it a hammering when it...

Re: Arcade Stick Reccomendations for my PS3 + PS2

After a bit of thought I realise I'd be more than happy with a really good quality PS2 stick as the only PS3 games I want to play with a stick are MK5 & SFIV. 99% of the games I'll be using it for is to play PS1 & PS2 fighters, shooters & arcade compilations thru my slimline PS2. So, can anyone recc...
