When someone wants money up front to develop a prototype - that sends me a message that they do not believe in the project.  Someone who believes in it would invest some time and money to build a prototype. Then see if it can be productised - THEN look for funding.

The whole thing smelt bad to me. $300? pre-order with the info they gave? Thanks but no thanks.

You can add a POKEY chip to it to address that problem.  The issue is the POKEY chips are becoming rare and expensive!

read recently that there is a new POKEY compatible chip on sale. It has proven to work in Atari arcade games and 7800 carts as far as I remember. There are some issues with some Atari computers but it seems to be a workable alternative to finding an old chip.  Google POKEYOne for info.

I have ALWAYS dodged licence tie-in games. Even as a teenager I was suspicious of them. That has stood me in good stead.  :)

I'm afraid I don't have a lot of sympathy for anyone who coughed up money based on what evidence was available.

I hope it works out for people but I really don't see it at this point unless they pull a magic rabbit out of a hat.

Watched that. XMen v SF was either the 1st or 2nd game I imported. Can't remember now - it was a long time ago. I got Radiant Silvergun around the same time.

It's an amazing game on Saturn - would have been head melting to have played it when it was a new release.

I agree that the abuse the PS1 version got while justifiable up to a point wasn't really right. The game looked OK to me in the video and if you hadn't played the original or Saturn you probably would have enjoyed it.

I remember getting Meltdown in a pack of games but never got to play it as I had no gun.

Wasn't missing much going by that video though if the gun worked better it would help.....

I didn't bite at launch. I waited until I could vulture it in 2001 to my shame. But I got a lot of new games cheap for it then.

I have 2 DCs now with a good game collection and all the controllers (wheels, arcade sticks, guns etc). Great system. Wouldn't be without it.

I think so too. It's a slightly better deal for someone with an original Asteroids cabinet as they are getting Deluxe and Lunar Lander added. You get high score saving too which original Asteroids doesn't have.

For a deluxe owner it just isn't quite the same deal having original Asteroids added - but you are getting Lunar Lander too of course -  it's still something I'd consider in the future.

About £150 for the board. No soldering required for installation.

Added Ghouls & Ghosts to my MD collection. In really nice condition too.

I've read this is a bit more manageable than the ridiculously hard Super G&G on SNES. I play that on PS2 using the Capcom Collection which removes the slowdown that is evident on SNES.

However no G&G game is a walkover. I still play the original Ghosts & Goblins - usually on Wii's VC - but I remember playing it in the arcade too. G&G on MD is tough - have go to level 2 though which I haven't managed on Super G&G!!!!

Just received a new RGB SCART cable for playing SNES on my CRT.

I've only ever played with s-video but my new CRT doesn't support it so had to upgrade to RGB.

s-video is very good but RGB gives me brighter more vibrant colours.

Loving it.  :)

Got it from retrogamingcables. I went for the universal one that works with NTSC and PAL in case I get an SFC in the future. My current SNES is modded for region and 50/60Hz selection.

Really nice build quality. A wee bit more expensive but you get what you pay for. The image is gorgeous. Would post a picture but my camera doesn't pick the CRT picture up very well.

Is there no paddle control for t2K on those? Thought that might have been built into them.

It's weird but it really does make a difference.  :)
