I live in old people land and the only way you get nice screens like that is make it yourself, buy it online, or steal it from the nursing home :idea: Hey, that reminds me..... they've got a flatscreen TV down at the home.....

odd things on shinobi

I have the revenge of shinobi on genesis and I played it about 2 years ago when the screen flickered and then on the titel screen it displayed "the super shinobi" and the picture looked wierd. Was this lost data from a SNES game remake of the game or something like that?

Project cases from radioshack

I have been to radioshack many times and noticed they had many project boxes in many different sizes that can hold circuit boards. It's just that I don't know how to fit an entire motherboard into one small one, so you could use a bigger one or cut the board in half, and then put the controls above ...

i'll probably use a dremel or x-acto knife to cut slits where the boards go
on a solderless bread board or something like that. I just wouldn't know how to wire them all to one slot. maybe a switch for each cart that separates that separates them. I don't really know.

SUPER GAME BOX FOR NES

You know about those little project boxes from radioshack that can hold circuit boards? Also if you recall, the NES carts are 75% empty. I have an idea to remove the circuitry of NES carts and put them in the boxes, connecting to a homemade cart hub. Then stick that on a portable and have extra game...

What is your highest contra score?

If you've ever played contra on the NES, you probably enjoyed it. If you're an organized nerd like I am and you write down your top score, please boast about it here V

I have an epson camera 5 mega pixels that is good at photos most of the time, but it glares off of objects constantly unless you're far away. How do I get the glare to stop in my NES photos? it has reflective plastic and metal. I can't just turn the flash off, can I?

CT fan, I have PS1 screen plates, some games including shenumi, but I may or may not be able to get you that because my ignorant sister probably wouldn't give shenumi even though she already took the frickin PS2, computers, TV, everything, and she hasn't played the game in 4 YEARS :!: I can probably...
