  1. Kudos to @strider for bringing up such a topic. It’s certainly something I can relate to. I’ve suffered from anxiety and interim bouts of depression most of my life and I find myself ‘collecting’ retro when I’m at my lowest. For me It’s a simple coping mechanism and I know exactly why I end up doing it which is quite simple………back in the days of the Saturn/PS1/N64 life was much simpler. Gaming was enjoyable and one of my main sources of ‘happiness’ back then. Whether it was pizza nights with friends and 4 player goldeneye or getting excited with the latest import Saturn games. No cares or worries in the world!! Then you grow up and life hits with you everything. Friends die, family pass away, money, mortgages, relationship, work, all of which cause stress, anxiety and low moods. So the body’s natural reaction is to try to ‘flee’ and return to times when life was happy. Sadly it’s only a short term release and it doesn’t really help in the long run. For @strider and anyone else who’s struggling just reach out. I for one am more than happy to spend an hour or so having a chat/catch-up/meet up with anyone who’s struggling with life. PS, hope the Saturn skeleton is still doing well
  2. I have a jaguar in storage with AVP that probably deserves a new home. Feel free to make me an offer if anyones interested
  3. Anyone here still trying to get a Series X?
  4. Ok I’m going to start again on Moogle soon so I at least know a few familiar faces! I’m not too fussed about losing my character over on ragnorak but is there an easy way of transferring all of the gil/items from that character? Seem to just be reading conflicting info
  5. I've just popped my Series X in the trading forum if anyone's still struggling to get one. https://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/324512-xbox-series-x/&do=getNewComment

  8. I’ve just restarted this myself after about 4 yrs off, didn’t even bother trying my old character as I can’t remember anything! I’m still on Ragnarok if anyones around. @djtickle?
  9. I run a series x in the living room on a 4K set and a series s in the bedroom on a 1080p set. Both look awesome to me in that configuration which I’m guessing is what they intended. Being able to switch the yakuza games between the two with cloud saving is awesome.
  10. @Ketchup - They’re pressed but don’t have the wobble required for a Saturn to read them without mod. It’s nothing new, even back in 1994 these were around and often referred to as ‘silvers’. Printers etc have obviously progressed since then which makes the repo element of the case/instructions a lot better than back then. This is the Facebook page of the particular group that supplied that one in the screenshot. Scan back to around feb and you’ll see videos of the production element. https://m.facebook.com/OldSchoolRetroartGames/
  11. I’m sure you won’t be the only one asking When you need that Saturn modifying give me a shout!
  12. Nope the disc is repo too. The ‘old school’ logo on the disc is the company that produce them. You’ll still need a modded machine or pseudo to play them
  13. It’s from jaded memory but I’m pretty sure they’re just Japanese units with HK 240V Power Supplies / packaging. If you check the bottom of the machine after the model number it should say JPN but the power supply say HGK or something similar? Some shipped with RF cables too like pal units did
  14. The Saturn looks like classic VDP2 failure which unfortunately seems to be getting more and more common.
  15. @Len - I’m in Manchester and have a brand new boxed sealed one with your name all over it (well, not literally of course!) Pop me a PM matey
  16. @Len - Not sure if you’ve seen my post over in the sales thread buddy
  17. I've popped it in the Sales Thread but if anyone is still after a Series S I still have a spare sealed one
  18. Well I was loving this on the One Series X until booting up this afternoon and finding I’ve lost about 6 hours of playtime. Literally put me at the point I was at yesterday when I started playing then. A quick turn to Reddit shows various other users having had the same thing happen on the XSX edition. FFS do they not have beta testers anymore.
  19. @Akira - Your Series X has been dispatched this morning by yours truly. Enjoy!
  20. I may be wrong but didn’t they start banning live accounts / 360’s if the incorrect drives were used?
  21. Lets hope none of them are being delivered by this guy https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/13107259/hermes-driver-launching-parcels-into-van/
  22. @reef Sure no problem at all :)
  23. @reef - I’ll be able to sort you one out at cost price if you have no luck. #savedfromscalpers
