I have no idea, but it certainly shouldn't be anywhere near zero. I wouldn't even do a resistance measurement, I'd use the continuity function on my multimeter.

Yep make sure there's no short between 5v and gnd on the board. Maybe one of your peripherals shorted out (probably the dodgy CF-IDE adapter).

Omake 3 is my favourite but the entire soundtrack is a masterpiece, both technically and musically.

The original of Turrican 2 was on one disk. It had to be put onto 2 disks for the cracks because the Amiga could not duplicate the disk format.

No, I'm saying that the GBC port of that game is in no way an acceptable conversion. Impressive considering the hardware, but basically a piece of shit compared to the original Neo Geo game.

Whilst the actual chassis of an A2000 is built like a brick shithouse, the top cover is actually quite flimsy. I have a 2000 which has a considerable bend from a monitor/TV being placed on top of it.

Yes Thunder Blade was a pile of shit. Like with Power Drift, the C64 version is far superior.

jotd, I beg to differ. So many of the conversions were so bad that we'd be better off without them.
