    Same here.

    Also, my room's too small to get the distance for a wide angle photo like that, I've just discovered (first world problem).

    I don't know how people keep their gaming areas so tidy. I've perpetually got a dozen projects on the go, and shit everywhere.

    I mean, one day I might even PLAY games.

    This is because people take photos right after they move house or something, before it is messy.

    I bought a pair of SEGA Genesis / Mega Drive controller to USB adapter from DaemonBite which were shipped on June 12, Airmail with no tracking which still haven't turned up. Obviously Covid is slowing the process down, but i'm getting impatient and can't use my controllers wirelessly till they arrive. Mick has offered me a refund if they don't arrive but that doesn't solve me problem!

    Any alternatives worth exploring? I see mayflash sell an adaptor on amazon

    [Edit] The 8bitdo M30's work wired, but only with the short usb cable they came with and not with any of my longer usb cables. Looking to move my MiSTer to the spare room from the garage this weekend once i get a couch and rearrange some furniture.. Guess i can always play SNES games with my bluetooth controller while i keep waiting

    But the grass is always greener on the other side of the shipping window.

    Just about ready to move my MiSTer from the garage into the spare room, comfy couch has been acquired.

    Purchased the following and flashed it with Tasmota and then ESPHome for Home Assistant integration
    https://www.kmart.com.au/product/mirabella-genio-wi-fi-powerboard-with-usb-ports/2736803

    I now have my power on/off and reboot sorted without getting off the couch and some backlighting, last thing to add will be a google home mini for voice control

    Not sure if i'm game to turn this 50kg monster on it's side for schmups.

    Can anyone recommend a scart splitter that i can use to swap between my 2 CRT's, aim is to have the 20" Teac on it's side for vertical scrolling games


    Also I seem to have a weird issue, when a game starts the controls are unresponsive until I seem to mash the controls and the legend showing which buttons do what pops up on the screen, at this point I can then hit credit, start etc

    I've been keen to do something like that with another MiSTer. I can see myself with a few of these at some point - arcade setup (one vertical, one horizonal), computer setup, console setup.
