Re: Kubrick's Films

There was a whole thread on Clockwork Orange a while back.... it's like Marmite!, personally I think it's an Excellent film which has to be watched thinking about the time it was made. The Shining is a good one too and the documentary shot behind the scenes by Vivian Kubrik is great too. Full metal ...

Re: I love PSPs

The only reason I got my PSP was for emulation!, the only UMD the drive has seen was when I rented GTA for the CFW hack years ago.... times have changed now, you just need a battery to hack my old thing.....

Re: HDTV lag when used with games?

The only thing that's annoyed yet me with HD lag is PSONE games on the PS3, yeah I've got a handful of PSONE's I could plug in but I thought it would be so easy playing them on the PS3 with the wireless controller...... I thought wrong!! Not a tv issue here though.... it's the hdmi output with the ...

Re: The DOS games thread

Ages ago I downloaded 1000's of dos games as I'd setup an old laptop with dos 6.2... don't know where they are now though (on some dvd's somewhere I guess) but I still have the old Omnibook 800ct setup for dos with a handful of games on the HDD, stuff like Asterix, Back to the Future and a Nightmare...

Re: Chase HQ Cabinet restorulation

I was out messing with this today, I robbed my VGA to RGB Scart cable from my Xenon cab and decided to get rid of the composite TV-Out I was using for ChaseHQ and use Soft 15khz and RGB, RGB can't be selected on the TV so I was hoping it was available so here's what I did. I connected 5V from the AT...

Re: Arcade & Xbox controllers designed for the left handed?

What's to decide if you are right handed that you want to use your right hand for your movements?.... both movements and actions have to be done in games so I don't think it matters...., can't imagine how hard it was for a lefty to play the original Street Fighter arcade with the buttons that you ha...

Re: Chase HQ Cabinet restorulation

That is one awesome restoration. It looks brand new! Have you ever considered coming to one of the Retro Events? I'm sure people would love to see (and play on) your cab. Thanks :D Close up it doesn't look brand new but it is in very good condition, I was hoping to have gone to r3play but couldn't ...
