Re: Fruit Machine Emulation

I emulated some machines just out of curiosity, I can't really see anyone having a ton of fun with them but there are some genuinely entertaining mini games/features. The most use I have had out of it is showing people who believe that the machines are random. Create a save state before a high/low w...

Re: How old is your heart?

Mine was a rather boring exact match for my age. So as from tonight I will be living off nothing but Krispy Kreme Doughnuts and Ale.

Re: How much are these atari 2600 games worth?

I bought a mint, factory sealed Atari 2600 pac-man from a charity shop at the beginning of this year for 39p.

If I hold onto it until retirement, I reckon I can make a good 50% profit!

Re: Eurocon 2010 - September 3-5

I'll be waiting for Scott (Edwards80 here) to try and get to 10k on Space Firebirds before me now ;) Don't hold your breath :lol: I was looking forward to trying a ZX Spectrum Divide too, however once I got the chance (after the comedian) the room had been cleared and populated with local folk :( S...

Nice one!

Haven't seen that work before, have tried swapping HDD's/restoring on a few with this problem with no luck.

Re: Eurocon 2010 - September 3-5

Absolutely cracking event. Great bunch of folks which made it very easy to just relax and have a good time. The event schedule was cool and there was always something going on in between, at least one Speccy v C64 v Amstrad discussion anyway ;) The pub was great as was the comedian. The Retro Comput...

Re: Original Xbox Red Light

Unfortunately, if it isn't a heat issue, it usually means that the CPU or GPU has kicked the bucket as it just indicates a general "Hardware Failure".

Re: Original Xbox Red Light

The Solid red light on the original indicates that it is overheating. If it still isn't happy after cooling down then there are few hardware failures that can cause it.

Does it power on for a short time after you let it cool?

Re: Best PC era

Same as famicom69. Biased as it was the time I got a decent income and could buy the things :) Unreal Tournament took up most of my time and they tried to improve on the formula afterwards and didn't really succeed. Rollcage, Motorcross Madness, Quake 3, soldier of fortune etc were all awesome. I've...

Re: R3Play Poll

Definitely looking forward to meeting and chatting with folks as much as the games. I don't actually know anyone on these forums yet but I expect that will change after Eurocon this weekend!

I'll be the one playing video games whilst wearing a video game related T-Shirt :roll:

Re: Gaming detox

I can easily go for a while without having any good gaming sessions, but as I have an original gameboy on my coffee table, I am not 100% game free for very long usually :D

Re: Best Classic Mario Game

It has to be Super Mario World. You know a game is good when you think you have completed it. Then your mate comes round and says "haha you have none of the secrets" and you aren't at all annoyed!
