Another option is RetroUSB's Super Powerpak. http://www.retrousb.com/product_info.ph ... ucts_id=84" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I have the NES Powerpak, and works great. I suppose this one is good too.

Looks great as always. Which reminds me, how do you take these photos on clean white backgrounds all the time? Is it shopped or do you have a sheet of A2 in a corner you keep for pretty photos?

hi, i'm wondering about the possibility of running a nes, snes or other emulator on an n64 with the 64drive.

i'm not sure how it would be done. can the 64drive menu load executables from the card? what architecture does the 64drive even use? does anyone have a copy of the old technical documents?

NES emulation is possible, we were playing Dpad hero at MGC, and the 64drive is based on an altera cyclone II FPGA.

Take the thing outside, set it on top of four white sheets of paper, and put it under my overhang. There is a LOT of indirectional soft light in this area.

Then I shoop out the paper edges and tweak the levels to make white match what you'd perceive.

sounds great, thanks for the help!

based on, but with its own special architecture, i'm guessing? looks like i'll just have to wait for updated technical docs with the public release.

I would assume it is soon.

i'd clear it with marshall first, instead of telling him that you're doing it without his say so.

If I were you, I'd wait until I had mine... massive attention to this can lead to a shortage of units, and we don't want that, do we? ;)

You don't have to worry about massive attention from Haunted's site :wink:

Now, if the release gets out on Engadget or one of those sites, then we should panic
