The SF games are brilliant for £20! - That's an excellent buy - nice to have real versions of some games.

I picked up a Mega CD - I'm exploring some old FMV titles I never had back in the day... playing Wirehead - it's actually not bad! - and there was me slagging off the Mega CD to Prowler a few months ago!

Testing out the PS2's I have got right back into some old PS2 titles - playing Half Life - it is still so good!
Thanks Peter, I'm really pleased with the SFII Games

The PS2 was an impulse buy but it's nice to play GT4 again, I still have the endurance races to do lol, anyone up for Nurburgring 24hrs? Anyone actually do that race?

To embed, you'll want: [img]Your URL here[/img], Don.

Using the source address for one of your images in that way gives:



If you should upload your pictures to a hosting site, they'll create all of that for you so that you can simply copy and paste the correct 'img' info.

I hope that helps!

I found firmware update with help in this thread: http://www.mp4nation.net/forum/viewt...p?f=17&t=18916 Pinball games for SNES and GBA are faster and more smooth now but random frameskip is still visible. This update will also change all icons, backgrounds. Build-in games will have chinese titles.

did you get a card with it?
I tried various sandisk (apparently recommended) and none of them would work.

i personally recommend Transcend 133x cards as they seem to work fine

I didnt buy it but at my local bootfair yesterday someone was selling an Amiga A500 for £2 (it was originally £5 but this was near end of day so they had reduced it) I was very tempted but it was very yellowed and I have no space at home to set it up in the foreseable future

You'll need 2 of them. It's a pretty easy thing to wire up (search hardware forum & there'll be a few threads)

*EDIT* - Look here: http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=40768

Bought a 1GB Radeon 6850 for my brothers PC... It's to replace his old 640mb XFX Geforce 8800GTS. The Radeon 6850 is an overclocked version branded by a company called 'Club-3D' which as far as i can tell is part of the same company who supply cards to PowerColor and VTX.
