  1. OpenEmu is the easiest starting point, apart from needing to obtain BIOS files for certain systems, if I remember correctly. I have a late 2012 Mac Mini with quad i7 and it supports 10.15 which is handy as OpenEmu needs 10.14.4 at a minimum. It supports up to PS1, Saturn and GameCube. From what I remember, emulation was pretty good for 16-bit systems. Not tried Saturn or Gamecube. I think PS1 was generally better than N64 though it has been a while since I last used it.
  2. The name rings a bell, so it’s a buy for me! Thanks for the heads up.
  3. Yes, it is a separate item. Should be linked from the page I referenced. Anyway, they are found here. Edited to add, there is a wire to solder to power the screen, plus some other wires for brightness controls etc. A bit fiddly but not too fiddly if you have some soldering experience.
  4. You can buy a larger IPS screen and suitable case from Funny Playing directly https://funnyplaying.com/collections/product/products/gbc-retro-pixel-ips-lcd-kit-1?variant=39377989075005 The clear orange shell I have is pretty good. Each half doesn't flex much when twisted. I used the existing IR cover and controls from my old GBC, and they seemed to work well. Use the supplied sticker on the back of the screen to avoid shorting something out, as I did. Need to get some replacement diodes. makho and Macho Nacho, and others, have product overview and installation videos on YouTube.
  5. I can believe that. Based on professional experience, it is likely that the channel utilisation of 2.4GHz channels where you live is too high for a good user experience when using real-time interactive applications such as video game streaming.
  6. “Great… They even come in Christmas cards!”
  7. New forum as Atari-forum has been down for a while now - https://misterfpga.org/ I have the DE-10 and a couple of extra boards - just need the motivation!
  8. I had this issue when setting up my new Switch last week. I manually entered DNS servers in the settings - and The Switch seems happy to pick up IP and default router / gateway via DHCP.
  9. I’ve always liked the intro to Wipeout 3 [Special Edition]. Still get the ‘feels’ even 20 years later.
  10. The scoring was broken as far as I could tell. As a 16k Speccy owner, this was a big disappointment after Jetpac. Shitzoids.
  11. Easily 1,000 hours and counting on Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas across PS3, PC and now Xbox One X.
  12. Saw that the other day. Good price and made in the UK. If it was a bit bigger you could put four Frequency Central Devices in it for four note polyphony. Use an external MIDI to CV box...
  13. KMR Audio are selling the Happy Ending Kit for £99 delivered. That’s where I got mine.
  14. You’ll only regret it. Do you have a Prophet 5 tucked away for the same price?
  15. I'll add my vote to these, as I've read them and agree with the recommendations: Catch 22 - Joseph Heller (nayson, Scribblor, Danster, JDubYes) The Crow Road - Iain Banks (Geekette, Danster, ZOK) Chickenhawk - Robert Mason (lolly)
  16. You are teetering at the top of a slippery slope My Eurorack journey continues in a rather silent fashion. There is activity but nothing that makes noises as I'm still building modules. Finished a VCF and half way through the Spring Reverb build.
  17. The Neutron is a good choice to try out modular's patching flexibility without spending a fortune... In other more money than sense news, my little PSU works though I got the polarity of the -12V and +12V indicator LEDs wrong. I've also finished my ADSR and that passes basic tests as does the Mixer module. And Thonk have released the Brunswick £99+delivery DIY semi-modular synth! https://www.thonk.co.uk/shop/fss-brunswick/
  18. Thanks. When I get the Power adaptor for the little PSU I can see how well my more complex active builds have gone
  19. A couple of pictures of my "rack" and SDIY builds so far. In the glass dish, to the top right of the rack, is a +/- 12V DC PSUs I assembled yesterday. I built the Music Thing Modular Graphic EQ at a workshop hosted by the designer, Tom Whitwell, at Thonk Towers in Brighton. My first module. The passive multiple (the 4x4x4) was my next build, followed by the MIDI Expander for one of the Distings. The two empty panels are, left to right, AI Synthesis OTA VCF (Korg MS-20 like apparently) and a Looping ADSR. The ADSR is the two partially assembled PCBs (and various baggies) next to the assembled module, which is an AI Synthesis Mixer. Next to the soldering station is a Thonk triple attenuator. I soldered the headers on the wrong side so I'm waiting for some header strips and many other components for a couple of partial kits; a Clock module and an LFO module. I've also ordered the PCB for a modern clone of the Boss DR-55 Dr. Rhythm drum machine. Oh, and a Music Thing Spring Reverb as Thonk were having a sale... Plenty to keep me busy as the evenings draw in!
