What if I am running this off of a computer? Namely an XP or OS X?

I guess if it's possible this way, it will be more of a dedicated emulation machine instead of game console mod...

Is this something that needs to be done on a hardware level (LCD)? Or can this be done from a software level (OS)?

Resizing Display are on LCD Question

Alright guys, I need your wicked skills for my question. Basically, I have a casing I want to use to fit in 7" 4:3 screen. I spent good time looking for 7" LCD screens. But I can't seem to find any. Naturally, my choices came down to either fitting in smaller screen or larger screen. I prefer puttin...

YES! :) they are all SNES games. I got actraiser to work contrary to torokun. It is an awesome game and I hope he's able to get it working. I may have a different version than him. Mine came in the old school early SNES cartridge (the kind you couldn't be pull out of the SNES without ejecting) (***...

I tried changing the battery for Actraiser. But it still doesn't work on Retro Duo. (works fine on the original SNES).

This is one game I really wanted it to work on Retro Duo. :(

Anyone tried it yet?

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. So far, it doesn't happen on other games. Only Super Met...

I recently cleaned it too...

Any specific ideas as to what you are referring to?

Do I need to change the pin connector?

SNES Frameskip (Super Metroid)

Alright... First of all... I confess that this is first "official" time I am playing Super Metroid from beginning to end. I just got the game from Amazon.com seller and tried it on two different machines. It runs perfectly on my Retro Duo, which is at my work. (S-Video to my Dell monitor) I came hom...

Awesome!

Thank you for the update. I still like Retro Duo. It's a good little device.

What do you think about color coding the working status categories?

For example green for "good/perfect" and red for "not working"?

Just sent you a PM. I recently got my Retro Duo and started testing some games. I think it's a fun system. Definitely step above FC Twin. I did notice that one of the sound channel doesn't work on SNES mode. Is this normal? This was a case for both games I tried so far (Super Mario World and Super R...

LOL.

This last page has been sort of a dejavu experience for me last few days.

I just received my Retro Duo.

Looks like a very solid piece of hardware. I can't wait to get the NES controller adapter though.

I emailed Innex and they said they are planning on releasing it sometime soon.
