  1. I’m sure others have said so previously. But I need to vent. Update files on this game take the biscuit. I’m now downloading the 1.13 patch for the 3rd time since its release. A patch file of 72GB for no apparent reason other than this game has a patch bug which forces it to redownload stuff you already have. So that’s 210GB total I’ve downloaded so far. Of which at least 140GB was unnecessary. No patch needs to be 72GB. How can that be justified? If only it was a mediocre experience I could bin it and move on. Bastards!
  2. Agreed. Life has been breathed back into this by PS+. Still a huge amount of fun and the best multiplayer I've experienced on PS4. Its not serious, I don't feel pressure to do well, it doesn't matter if I lose (KDR isnt a stat). Still have bags of fun stomping around and punching ant people in my massive robot. Titanfall 3 is one thing that would sell me next gen.
  3. Yes - and as @Jamie John says its a bit good in there. Also one of my favourite areas in the game.
  4. Useful map in spoiler above Go and buy the heater shield from the undead merchant . It gives 100% protection from physical attack.
  5. Yes it should. I run via multi man but on a BC ps3. But I believe there is a toggle not to use the native hardware and emulate in software instead.
  6. I suppose it could be isolated to COTM because it was an early title. But it was so ruinous - forcing me to save scum my way through that boss - that it’s put me right off. Any future play through of Aria or Harmony will be on a DS that’s for sure. It’s not everything on reflection. I’ve been playing GBA Super Ghouls and Ghosts on PSP without any noticeable issues. Though I’m so poor at it I’ve not seen very far into the game.
  7. Not to rain on the love in here. But GBA emulation is far from perfect. I’ve played circle of the moon to completion and at points the frame rate dips almost made me abandon it. The 2 headed dragon being a particular low light with what must have been an FPS in the single digits.. I’ve subsequently been put off embarking on GBA action games on the PSP just in case I get a similar experience some way down the line. Plays the hell out of Fire Emblems and Advance Wars of course and as far as I’m concerned the PSP go form factor is pretty much perfect. A truly pocketable portable and the ps1 emulation performance and library is a huge plus.
  8. @grounded_dreams I've not done it personally but you should be able to run just from the usb once you have created it from the image you've downloaded. You'll probably need to remove your sd card or it will boot from that by default. You may have to explicitly tell your pi to boot from usb though. See this link for an explanation of whether you need to change anything (model dependent) and how to do it. https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/hardware/raspberrypi/bootmodes/msd.md
  9. Blimey! All I've got in my shed is some old paint and a plastic mower. In answer to the original question - I manage by modding older gen hardware so I don't need all the disks and boxes. A OG XBox, Back compat 60Gb PS3, XBox 360, Wii and PS4 cover pretty much most things and all will fit in a regular sized media cabinet. Given its looking like the next gen consoles will all have backward compatibility baked in, I can't envision it getting any more cluttered either.
  10. @Jazz Glands I have the pound hd link hdmi cable. Online reviews indicate it’s not perfect but they are far more discerning/fussy than me because I’ve found it to be excellent. No issues with lag. Image looks clean and games like soul calibur 2 at 720p look great. Comparison https://youtu.be/c1-MVEy3Y8Q I got mine via amazon - though looks like only 3rd party sellers now. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07D19QQHW/ Incidentally the hdmi footage in the review linked looks a little more washed out than the image I’m getting.
  11. Yes please! My sf iv stick can then be used on Final Burn Alpha. Will pm.
  12. I’ve had a quick go. Works like a dream. Really need a case to tidy up all the cables, but functionally I’m very impressed. As attractive as I think a crystal OG Xbox is - this means I can now tuck it away in a cupboard. Now to convince my old Uni alumni to come round to play some 4 player Top Spin and Mashed. As as for input lag - Soul Caliber 2 is as responsive as I remember. So it’s pretty imperceptible (+4ms in tests if I remember correctly). Steel battalion with a keyboard add on will be interesting. But that’s for another day.
  13. Also - I finally got round to pulling the capacitor out. No acid on the board but it was leaking a little. And it’s surprisingly potent stuff. My fingers were stinging pretty bad after I’d taken it out.
  14. That’s great to hear. Mines in the post so probably on a container ship from Oz at this very moment.... Still - great to hear it works as advertised. As it’s just the board I’m going to need a case from somewhere.
  15. Oh yes. No problems there. All other console devices connected are nice and responsive.
