Give it up for your greatest video game accomplishments

So let's all pat ourselves on the back and compile a list of our greatest achievements. I'm old so most of mine are a little dated. Here are a few that I remember. - Missile Command for the Atari 2600 - Flipped it twice when I was 9. I musta been a prodigy when it came to that game. It wasn't even m...

Fume-0

Been a long, long time since I've posted anything. Way distracted by WoW right after I began relocating cartridge slots on my future portable(s). Now that WoW is boring again mere months after the expansion, I got back to another distraction. Only this one had a purpose with the amount of soldering ...

Re: Taking the plunge

The wife is back from N'Orleans so very little time has been spent on the cart relocation. It appears the problems I had the night before have been rectified. I was able to do 17 traces in about 10 minutes. Half way there on the board side or 25% overall. I really hope to get it working this weekend...

Re: Taking the plunge

A night that started with great anticipation an excitement turned into one of torture and despair. I ripped that extension piece off the bottom of the board which of course renders the cart slot useless. It was then where my cart relocation woes began. I had such high hopes of doing the work of a tr...

Re: What SNES Item is this?

Re: How to make a FAT American PS2 play Japanese games?

Are you calling us Americans FAT? I resemble that remark.

On a similar note.. Sumo doesn't have a weight class.. But good luck with that inertia..
