I didnt remember how awful the EA music was, wow it's like a chorus of male Tom cats singing for their supper. I'd go Tengen purely for that reason. I want to now play it with unlimited lives. This is one game that lots of the conversions are decent too.

General Retro Chat / Re: The ugly face of ColecoVision

For the last thirty years fans, modders and home-brewers have been keeping these systems relevant. Just because someone purchases some loosely linked logos doesn't make them "Coleco", Atari or anyone else. The takedown notice via Facebook is just bullying by a brand troll. What's more important to the Colecovision name? Licensing a plastic emulator to a hw manufacturer or something truly amazing like the coleco super game module. The most successful platform holders embrace the market by keeping the creators close, which in turn develops that brand. 40% of something large is always better than 95% of something small.

Ive just ordered the Atari 400 one. Can't wait to get it.

I follow James on twitter and his mouse mats are fantastic things. The Atari 400 one looks amazing. I definitely need to order one or two.

That's a super collection. I've always contemplated getting an NG CD but never quite jumped. I've always like the NGCD controller too - They always seem to connected to Sharp X68000's at events and the controller suits Shumps down to the ground (Ive got a couple of AES sticks for a supergun). I've got an MVS cab but having a gentle sit down on the sofa is sometime preferable to standing at a cab.

Six Button Japanese pad - Slightly smaller than original version.

I had one of these back in the day and loved it. Id happily have one now plugged in to my PC. Tbh I found the 3 Button MD pad to be poor ergonomically. The 6 button pad was better. The Master System pad was too square. DC pad a little quirky. Best digital pad overall was the Snes pad.

Millennium Racer - Y2 K Fighters was the recently found Dreamcast game? When console support from the manufacturer dies overnight like the DC, Xbox and WiiU it makes you wonder how many completed and near completed games are out there.

Chuckie Egg was platforming perfection on 8 Bits computers, Its definitely a game I come back to regularly. Those ladders were amazing.

Chuckie Egg for me.

BBC Micro is my favourite version.

Looks great, I thought those were original switches and cart slot on first look. I'd love a copy of that SD card he's running.

Machines that have would benefit are machines like the N64. Even on a decent CRT its visuals would be better cleaned up and upscaled onto hdmi. Similar things could be said to the PS1 and Saturn's 3d titles. I just think the price point is a little high and if can't play roms's it makes it a little redundant to the many people who don't have older titles in their collection.

I had Saturn Bomberman on PAL with five controllers and multitap, it was such an amazing party game. I'm surprised to see it on the list.

One positive thing about this list are the games are all great and are there on merit, not just some awful ultra rare garbage.

I don't get it, $400-600 would get you most systems in great condition. Emulation would need to be seriously 100% and some console games look better at there native resolution on a CRT. I find older games weren't programmed for the display lag new screens possess. The price tag would make it very much a niche system. Thats my two penneth.

Tldr: works fine through composite but is in black and white when using av2hdmi

NTSC will play in black and white if the TV can't output 60hz. Is the av2hdmi outputting at 50hz or 60hz HDMI? The TV should have a information button that shows what signal its receiving. Have you tried it on any other HDMI ports on different screens?

I'm waiting for my new extension with office/games room to be completed. Most my retro collection will be out permanently. I will then do some pieces on my Vic20 love, recently acquired Amstrad and soon to arrive 1980 cocktail machine. It must be frustrating to have so many new lurkers but no active post from them.

To be fair the person reproducing the homebrew carts should get permission or agreement with the original creator. Maybe with small royalties going towards them. Creating them separately and without permission would be probably worse then re-creating old commercial releases as at least the commercial release would of made its original owner some proper money originally.
