You'd either have to obtain acces to a specturm analyzer or just read specs about the FM transmitter you have.

I guess starfox (or starwing in europe) would qualify. Lots of people hated the N64 game and it was up for cheap everywhere in stores. But I bet not many of them had played the SNES game before. Wow, Europeans are lame then, because everywhere else, people love Starfox 64 (or Lylat Wars or whatever...

I had that as well on my PAL snes. Don't know what it is though. Does it happen when you're on the elevators and you suppossed to like flicker?
It also happens in some games where you get hit and you become invincible for a short time for me.

That's a 7805 so 7,5V sould do. But look around for other regulators as well, something might need a higher voltage.

By coincidince I'm also working on a FM transmitter. I busted open an old wireless headphone and just used that to transmit my music. I can just plug anything into it and it'll get send around my house. The range depends on your S/N quality and your antenna. Also you'll need a lot of power for long...

Pfft I thought having 2 NES consoles was weird but since some of you here have multiple clear blue N64's and towers of NES consoles I guess it's normal .:D
I haven't been seeing much merchandise and action figures yet. Does anyone collect them?

Replacing them is impossible since the DS Lite has a different firmware.

Backlighting them like the DS Lite is possible but hard.

My guess as to why it stopped working was faulty wiring. Most clones tend to have really cheap and/or poorly soldered ribbon cables connecting the two or three boards inside the system (including the Retro Duo). I think perhaps after time something wiggled loose and that may have been the source of...

Releasing Chrono Trigger on the PS3 would plain stupid. Not only is the Wii selling 3 times as much in Japan, there's also a lot more people who have a Wii that would be willing to buy Chrono Trigger. It's just like Final Fantasy 13. They should just release it on all 3 consoles and not just the PS3...

Great, I might buy this. But they'll probably make a Genesis/snes twin sooner or later. That would be awesome.

Yes I also wondered, where is the 7805? Looks quite dangerous to me.
