  1. Prices for these have gone a bit nuts. I know someone mentioned retrosix but frankly those guys are ripoff merchants so I won't use their prices as a guide. Looking on eBay and knocking a chunk off coz rllmuk...GBC £100 delivered? It's got colour palette and brightness adjustment. Touch top left for pallet, top right for brightness. Smoky black shell. Does have a few specs of dust under the lens from storage but I can clear that.

  2. @Stejay if you are nervous about drilling the holes for the buttons I would strongly recommend you put them in the location I've used. Reason being; the control deck is much thicker, more visible and not reversible so if you make any cockups you are screwed! Where I put them, it's a really thin piece of MDF and reversible so if you get any splits on either side when you drill through, you can turn it round and use the 'good' side.

    I used a wood drill bit to match the button, maybe 22mm bit? 


    The power and volume I followed some instructions I found on Reddit I think. Will try and dig them out. Power was easy. Volume was slightly trickier to follow.

    Madlib’s Donuts?

    I was going to post about this last week sometime and then forgot. In fact, I was going to post and say something like 'I know Cal will already be on this'. It is definitely Madlibs Donuts. It's EXACTLY what I thought after the first few listens through. It's a timeless piece and it is absolutely designed to be listened to in its entirety.

  4. RPis are the ultimate tinkerers tool (ooh matron). Weirdly having mine in a cab has made me less inclined to piss about with it. It's probably the best gaming related thing I've ever done, though. Witnessing the absolute pure joy my two biggest lads get when they are slaying footclan on TMNT is just incredible. And them reenacting all the cutscenes etc. It's pure gold.

    I was just about to say you shouldn't let anyone shame you into not cashing it on it but you shouldn't do it by selling it to people on this forum at an inflated price. It's not good etiquette. 


    Sell it on eBay or take it to CEX and make a couple of hundred, that's fine. You bought it with good intentions and it didn't work out. But if you're selling it on this forum it needs to be at cost price in my honest opinion.

    I think that's fair comment and tbh was my initial instinct.

  6. If I were to sell mine what's an acceptable practice? I genuinely bought it for myself but practically it doesn't fit in my setup...I mean physically rather! It takes up a cupboard space that leaves no room for my series S. I'm going to wait for the slim version in a few years or so.


    I don't want to 'scalp' on eBay because it was never my intention plus it doesn't sit right with me. Cex will give me £625 cash but I hate those bastards. What a weird dilemma!!!

    Actually I forgot to ask for those who have the GB Color IPS mod. My understanding is that it makes use of the IR sensor to adjust the brightness via touch but does the IR sensor still work? I know it doesn't make use of many games but I wasn't sure if it disables the feature or if both still work in unison. I only ever recall using it with Pokemon Gold & Silver for the colour Pikachu pedometer.


    The suggested location is by the IR sensor but technically you can put it anywhere.  But yeah, if you put it there the IR sensor still works.
