Re: What cables are you using to get the best picture?

Poundland will do simple '1 plug to 3 socket' adapters. Pot luck if its fully RGB wired or just composhite, but for a quid its worth a punt to try the current stock. Cheers for the suggestions, I'll check out this Poundland one first. Trick is, how will I be able to tell if it's fully RGB wired? Wh...

Re: Best TV for ps1 / ps2 / xbox 1

By faffery, I meant the workarounds for games that don't work. OK, so it's not like climbing Everest, but it's still a bit of a faff. And you did well to find one so cheap - I usually see them for about £40. My point wasn't really that using a VGA is a great hassle, but rather that it's not that muc...

Re: What cables are you using to get the best picture?

Does anyone know where I could pick up an RGB Scart switch or multi-adaptor? I believe that only one of my TV's two scart ports is RGB (usually AV1), but it's taken up by my Dreamcast and I'd like to connect my PS2 and GameCube to it as well (just got a copy of Ikaruga and it looks terrible in S-vid...

Re: least favorite star wars game

Yoda Stories. What made it worse was that my mate duped me into buying the disc off him for a 5er - it was freeware! I was a mug.

Re: First Game Ever Bought?

Mine was Guantlet II on the Amstrad CPC-464. That game never seemed to end.

Re: Best TV for ps1 / ps2 / xbox 1

I'd still use RGB SCART for Dreamcast. I use RGB scart on a 4 year old BUSH LCD HD TV and it looks pretty good. People bang on about the VGA box but I don't think it's that much better than having RGB scart given the faffery involved, the price and the fact that quite a few of the good games don't ...

Re: The Most Boring Game You've Ever Played

MGS4, there's nothing fun about walking 3 steps in 45 minutes, couldn't take more than that. I loathed this game. Spent the first tow or three levels crawling from beginning to end without once having to engage an enemy, which totalled about 20 minutes playing time; less than the time spent watchin...
