MIYAMOTO-SAN... YOU HAVE MY AXE


I've found its very important how tight or not tight you make the screws inside the NES in terms of reading games properly. Not sure why but it matters. It actually has to be pretty loose on mine

I didn't expect this picture to own as hard as it did, I forget how lovely the AGS-101 screens are every time.

IIRC that setup rightly it doesn’t fit the GBC case flush when This does not compute covered it so there’s that to consider.

Didn't one of the retro roundtable guys announce he would be releasing something new for GBA backlight mods? I remember him saying he was dissatisfied with the current solutions for supplying voltage to the AGB 101 screens inside of classic Gameboy Advances.

That was voultar and he says a lot of stuff. I think he picks up a lot of interesting projects and moves on to other interesting projects before the last one is done. Love the guy, he's great, but he's not good at finishing stuff off that he talks about. To my body.

Well... I screwed up and accidentally hit "Cancel" on my TG submission for Gyruss. Hoping it can get reversed.

Is there a reliable way to format flash drives for use with an Xbox? Mine just detects them as "damaged" but doesn't try to format them like so many guides say it should.

If what you're trying to do is do an initial install of a softmod or something, you basically need to use a FAT16-formatted smaller than 4 GB drive to get it read, once you have the softmod or a modchip in you can then use larger drives formatted in FAT32 for transferring files.

Best to go for 1 GB or 2 GB sized drive if you can manage it, some cheap old flash drive as long as it still works.

Just an update for those who kept their eye on this - I got contacted by TG staff, and they're likely going to reverse my dumb rear end mistake in 24 hours or less.

I had to try a bunch of drives before I got one to work. I had to end up getting a fairly old one. I think I tried 5 before I got them to work. I ended up using a 2gb SanDisk Cruz (I think that's what it's called)

Does anyone remember what happened to the project where people were editing GBA game graphics/palettes back to more normal color brightness, to compensate for the original ROMs having brightness-boosts to try to handle the unlit original GBA screen better?

I know there's a patch for FF6 Advance that does this, dunno about other games

"I Kill Me!!" -Alf

I was playing Final Fantasy 9 for the first time on my laptop. I got pretty far into disc two. Then the hard drive died.

Is there anywhere that I can go to to get my game back to approximately where I was at the same levels? I know it's not going to be perfect but I'm not replaying all of this. Is there some sort of save editor for the game that will plop me somewhere in the middle of the game like that? I can't imagine there's going to be save file downloads that are going to be exactly where I was.

I really want to finish this game but if there's no way to do the above I'm unfortunately going to just give up on it and I don't wanna do that.
