Hey Prin, Looks like it'd bug me on the buttons too tbh, they aren't curved to match the fingers on your hand like alot of actual cabs do, its possible the guts are generic so think they are outputting to a stereo TV and they haven't put something in to switch to mono so you're down a channel.
Its pretty much the layout they used to have in the arcade.
Cant seem to get Blankas electricity to work.

Just the one speaker, but it is a bit of a balls up to have it outputting stereo with just the one.

As indicated in the PC Engine thread, I pre-ordered my first mini. The other minis haven't done it for me but the prospect of a whole new system with a new set of games to explore is very exciting. I haven't had that kind of joy since I discovered the XBox 360 back in 2016 (cue music from 2001: a Space Odyssey) and I can tell from the descriptions of the games in the RG article that I'm going to love the PC Engine. Who knows? I might even end up branching out to the real thing.

Is that the special edition Windwaker with Ocarina of Time? I got that with my cube, still never played it.

The copy of Wind Waker that I have has a bonus disc but it only has OoT/Master Quest on it.

The one that also has the other Zelda games on it (which I also have) is the "Collector's Edition"

Yeah, looks like its OG owner swapped the bonus disc out for the Collector's edition or something along those lines.

But ehh, since the collector's edition was never sold in stores, a rarer find. ;)
