Re: Dead cart :(

Thanks for the replies. I'm not technically inclined, so I will likely just give it away as a non-working cart.

Dead cart :(

I bought Batman for the Genesis off ebay a while ago. Popped it into the console last night and was greeted with a blank screen. Cleaned contacts with 95% isopropyl alcohol, still nothing. Opened up the cart, used a white rubber eraser to make the contacts suuuuuper shiny. Still nothing! Anything el...

Massive NES lot on ebay.ca

Not my auction. But 589 carts is a LOT of games :shock: 0.99 cent starting bid and free shipping, too. Anyone tempted? :D https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Massive-Nes-Lot-589-Games-Nes-Nintendo-100-Authentic-Canadian-Seller-Read-Info/112925476151?hash=item1a4ae20537:g:3WcAAOSwahZaysAm

Where do you guys get your games these days?

I'm dipping back into collecting after a (several year long) break. Finding the scene has changed a lot. Not so many people selling/trading stuff on forums any more, and prices have shot waaaay up. Now there's also Facebook groups to contend with, too. Kijiji is just nuts. Wondering where everyone s...

Re: What happened to this site?

Ya I miss the good old days around here where people would trade and buy casually, now with all those damn millennials :P it’s all about instant collections and buy it up fast at any cost it seems. Took me years to get the games I wanted but I guess I am just getting old and tired of this new scene...

That's awesome, RayB. I recall you also worked on Cool Spot as well, if I'm not mistaken :D How many console games did you work on back in the day? Which ones were they??

Re: Sorting Out ROMS

CLRMAMEPRO and dats from No Intro's Dat-o-Matic . Little bit of a learning curve, but you can use Parent/Clone dats for consoles and filter by region and do "1 game 1 Region" which leaves you with the newest revision rom only. ^ This. It baffles me why people bother distributing romsets w...

Re: Looking for Sega Genesis system box only?

I know Toyratt in Milton (https://www.facebook.com/toyratt/) has a bunch of Genesis system boxes, at least from what I've seen on his youtube videos. Not sure how many contain systems though. You may want to give them a call and check.

I wouldn't pay more than $15-20.

Re: Best option for retro console emulation

Raspberry Pie with RetroPie package installed is probably the most flexible and user-friendly option for you. You can download a RetroPie image for free here: https://retropie.org.uk/ As for controllers, I use a wired Xbox 360 usb controller when playing emulators on my PC. Got it for about $30 on A...
