Did you get the correct pin? is the 72 pin connector in all the way (or is it old/worn)? Is the cartridge clean?

Re: NES lockout chip damaged

Yes, as long as it's the correct pin that came out, you're fine. I always just pry the pin out of the IC when I disable it.

I might also be able to go this year. I'm 18 and in college now, which makes it a bit easier.

Re: Cart emulator progress thread

Average for australia shipping seems to be ~3-4 weeks. That tracking sucks, but you have to pay $40 instead of $14 to get anything better. Actually, if you want the tracking to be a little better, you can send it registered for an additional $11.50 fee. Depending on the country, the tracking can be...

I have no use for this, and it's too big to just file away. If you're a fan of the movie you'd probably g...

Re: Postal Service Annoyances!

items placed flat on the bottom of the box with peanuts dumped on top,...or even crumpled newspaper. The items placed flat on bottom of box with the foam beads on top is what happened every time I ordered from zipzoomfly.

Re: Sharp Nintendo Television
