  1. Bit of a thread hijack, my wife is buying me a PS1 mini for Xmas. Probably from eBay. Do they come with two controllers? If not will a 360 pad work if I "hack" it? Or maybe a PS4 pad? Want to know what to pack for Xmas at the in laws!
  2. Is there a pc collection of old wipeout games??? I need to know!
  3. Great! Can you recall what replacement stick you bought? Was it as good as an official stick?
  4. Hamleys of Belfast , ha ha ha! Christ just googled a and f corner , it was there since 1938 on Shaftesbury square!? It may have closed down some time in 80s or early 90s or renamed or something. https://m.facebook.com/oldbelfastphotographs/photos/a.1729512510611138/1805819566313765/?type=3 Edco rings a bell , not sure I visited it. Maybe my dad took me there. This is all making homesick and nostalgic.
  5. Has anyone attempted replacing or repairing N64 analogue sticks? https://video-game-guy.com/the-best-n64-joystick-replacement-parts Any advice or warnings? I'm thinking third party sticks would be just as crap as third party pads from back in the day.
  6. The model shop! Loved that place! And leisure world, fond memories going with my dad. And a and f corner for spectrum games, I remember seeing switch blade on an st in there and wanting something better than our spectrum. Leisure world always seemed to be having smoke damage sales due to various bombings I think. 147 was probably more dangerous due to police station in a way: badly aimed mortar attack could be an issue thing is I grew up in fairly central Belfast in the 80s and 90s, the weirdness of the troubles is only apparent to me in hindsight (and because I don't live there anymore). Centre of Belfast could be well dodgey at times. Back then it was no man's land in the evenings. I really miss Belfast and want to move back, unfortunately my wife thinks n ireland is too bonkers, sees the recent rioting and thinks no thanks. I prefer life there.
  7. Yes I remember appollo. It's was a bit fancier as far as I can remember! (I was ten / eleven) Edit now I think about it I remember playing operation wolf or at least looking at it in an arcade beside Smithfield
  8. 147 members club in Belfast, a smokey dodgey shit hole. Treasure trove on castle Street in Belfast, even worse. Though I saw street fighter 2 for first time in there and my mind was blown
  9. Sounds good. I ll not put in trading yet.
  10. Darwock decided not to proceed, so if anyone else is interested let me know
  11. Would anyone here be interested in buying my koryuu? It's a device that converts composite to RGB. Specifically designed for the ossc It's this: https://videogameperfection.com/products/koryuu-transcoder/ I dont need anymore as I've got all my composite only consoles RGB modded. I'll stick it on trading in next few days, thought I'd check here first. 55 quid delivered.
  12. What's everyone's favourite version of resident evil and in what system? Me, I've only really played re 2 on the Dreamcast, really like it but never finished it. Also played a bit of re 1 PS4 remake of the remake it was ok ish. Didn't get along with code Veronica at all. So for me re 2 on the dc. I think I'm looking for a recommendation!
  13. Thanks, yes mega bezal is pretty amazing. Haven't tried it in my new telly yet!
  14. Yeah I've actually just packed away my consoles for a while, cables everywhere was getting a bit much. Back to emulation it is!
  15. Thanks. So does the 1.7 not have dejitter stuff in it?
  16. I'm finding my NTSC NES drops out a lot even at 3x on the ossc + samsung. Similar on super Famicom. I'm using packapunch cables. I've got an old model ossc, the one that can't do sound via HDMI, needs 3.5 jack. I've been reading about dejitter mods. Though it seems that ossc pro has built in help for this. Are the latest osscs all pro models?
  17. Part of the reason I cancelled a lg c2 was input lag issues. That and I'd ordered a 48 inch one which turns out to be way darker than a 55. Seems to be a different build. Is bfi an option in retro arch?
  18. Oddly it won't display anything with ossc at 5x, have to use 3x so 720p. It looks good, at first I thought it looked terrible due to me setting it to 2x. Not sure how much lag scaling adds. Seems to be fine. Is the retro tink 5x better than an ossc?
  19. Went for a 55inch Samsung quantum dot oled. Totally ridiculous purchase! Supposedly has very low input lag.
  20. Just tried that, actually looks a lot better! Thanks. Not as good as my 2012 LCD though.
  21. Has anyone got any advice on using ossc with 4k TV? I've just bought a Samsung s95b oled. I have only tested my super Famicom, 2x but 5x doesn't. 2x looks like a blurry zoomed in mess. Are there settings on the TV I can fiddle with that might help?
  22. Yeah I've been paying close attention to input lag measurements. My main worry now is I've ordered a TV too big for my living room. 48 inch. Currently have a 32.
  23. I'm thinking of buying a new 4k. Half of me is thinking f##k it and buying a nice oled TV, but that will cost a grand. Couple of things, has anyone here tried an ossc with a 4k ? I'm not even sure if my early model ossc can go up to 4k. Also, input lag. As far as I can tell the best I'll get is about 10ms. My other option is sumsungs much cheaper crystal uhd displays or one of their qleds (not same as oled!) (350 to bout 600 quid ish). Anyone had experience of these? I'd there anything else I should be considering here? I don't feel great about spending so much on a TV but i rarely upgrade hardware round my house like this and I'll use it for ten years or so at least. I'm also thinking maybe my 2012 32 inch LCD is fine.
