  1. I’ll put some pictures up when it arrives. I’m not expecting the 3D printed case to be that great but we’ll see. LGR posted a video on it yesterday.
  2. My RMC Multisystem has been shipped and should be with me on Monday. I also have a 512Gb SD card on the way. I’d better start reading up on how to set the thing up and getting some roms.
  3. I don’t see how that can be true seeing as Japanese carts are bigger than other regions. Unless they mean Japanese machines that still have the cart lock. All grey import machines have this removed as its only one screw to disable.
  4. I played an awful lot of Batman and Head over Heals on the Spectrum. RIP.
  5. I will definitely give those a listen. I played a lot of Rambo III on the Megadrive in 1989. The song when you’re rescuing the prisoners on level 2 is really atmospheric.
  6. Yeah I’ve ordered the version without the hole as I’ll be using HDMI or VGA. As @robotattack pointed out - the case includes a fan that can be run at 3.3v or 5v to deal with the heat. I just have the DE10 at the moment so I guess I’ll also need to buy a heat sink for the cpu. Not sure tbh.
  7. I can’t wait to get mine. The version of the case without the hole on the top for the scart socket will also have a mount for at 2.5” drive.
  8. I’ve ordered one plus a case in grey.
  9. Someone over at the Sega 16 forums is hacking one of my favourite games Ghouls ’n’ Ghosts so it looks more like the arcade. The original is an early game and didn’t have the option of using a larger rom to replicate the arcade graphics as well as it could have. It must be a huge task, I really hope he finishes it.

  10. This is worth a watch as it covers the topic of price fixing that’s been happening recently
  11. I chose the Megadrive mini which comes with USB dongles.
  12. I understand that the RMC board isn’t very tempting for those who already have a full set up. For me though who is just starting out it makes a lot of sense. Plus I like the consolized form factor over the rectangular stack. I’m undecided on the 3D printed case at the moment and the price will determine if I get one or wait to see what happens further down the line.
  13. Here you go. I ordered the USB rather than the DB9 version £15.63 46% Off | 8BitDo M30 2.4G Wireless Gamepad for Sega Genesis/Gega Genesis Mini and Mega Drive/Mini - Sega Genesis Wireless Game Controller https://star.aliexpress.com/share/share.htm?image=U145ffa3ce4b4419ea0d3a7153517b3c4G.jpg&businessType=ProductDetail&title=£15.63 46% Off | 8BitDo M30 2.4G Wireless Gamepad for Sega Genesis%2FGega Genesis Mini and Mega Drive%2FMini - Sega Genesis Wireless Game Controller&platform=AE&redirectUrl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.aliexpress.com%2Fitem%2F4000823953259.html%3F%26srcSns%3Dsns_Copy%26tid%3Dwhite_backgroup_101%26mb%3DXv1WVzBmNPRW4a6%26businessType%3DProductDetail%26spreadType%3DsocialShare
  14. I only have the DE10 so far but couldn’t resist these at 45% off from AliExpress.
  15. And it arrived today. That was faster than I was expecting. Update video from RMC
  16. NEC made the best multisync monitors back in the 90’s. How did I not know they made one with a PC Engine built in?
  17. I’ve sat on the MiSTer fence for long enough. I’m definitely buying one of these with a DE10 nano when they go on sale next month.
  18. In the car on the way home from the rave.

    Yacht Rock

    I like the look of this The latest compilation in the essential Too Slow To Disco series is undoubtedly one of the best yet. Instead of focusing on sugary, pitched-down disco, the set showcases what it calls "yacht soul" - suitably sweet, often overblown yacht rock and downtempo disco covers of classic soul songs. There's some superb material on show throughout, with our highlights including Boby Everett's jazz-rock-meets-Philly Soul take on the Beach Boys' 'God Only Knows', a hot-stepping '80s soul cover of Fleetwood Mac's Balearic classic gem 'Everywhere' by Chaka Khan, a deliciously tactile and loved up, boogie-era Aretha Franklin recording of 'What a Fool Believes' and a frankly triumphant, heavily orchestrated soul cover of Paul McCartney's 'Let 'Em In' by the brilliant Billy Paul. https://www.juno.co.uk/products/too-slow-to-disco-presents-yacht/825684-01/?utm_source=feat_email&utm_medium=feat_email_21-07-12&utm_term=feat_email_all_CD&utm_content=feat_email_header&utm_campaign=feat_email_all_cd&c=5277
  20. Lovely bit of sun soaked deep house from G-Prod & Taho. Unfortunately it’s not being released until mid September
  21. I remember seeing a demo of an Atari Falcon in a music shop around 1992-3 and being amazed when someone who worked there recorded CD quality audio on it and zoomed into the waveform and edited it. Futuristic stuff at the time. After Atari went bust music software producer C-Lab bought the rights to create their own Falcons and these are even rarer. EDIT Also Sony were “inspired” by the unreleased Falcon Microbox for the design PlayStation 2
