A500's popup quite often, paired with a GoTeK it's a helluvan experience.
Configured your Line4X to 256x240 optimal ?
Yup using the FirebrandX settings, but can't remember whether it was 256x240 or 320x224, recently upgraded the firmware on my OSSC so lost all my custom profiles.
bolex17 Assuming you know about this? http://pbnl.byethost7.com/ossc/profiles/?i=1 works great once you have worked out the best settings for your gear
Wash your mouth out
Haha all good, it's only a name. The minimig core is quite excellent.
TBH the Atari ST was better at some things than the Amiga, but for purely gaming I think the A500 takes the award (certainly better sound/music, but the ST had excellent graphics capability too).
the ST was hobbled out of the gate for games and never recovered despite the STE revision.
ST was for the music crowd that took advantage of the built in midi. I can't think of anything it did better.
One (sort of) word - OctaMED...
Playing the Amiga version emulated on original xbox
On the subject of vehicular fun and OG xbox, Burnout 3: Takedown. IMO the pinnacle of the franchise.
The game is so fast it's a challenge to take a decent photo of while playing. Cheap ebay component cables but looking quite decent. Going to attempt Xbox 360 component cable mod on Sunday. Additionally going to try wire up the unused composite plug on the cable to Coax SPDIF output.
Working on a 1CC of The Punisher
All this talk about 5x86 on the retro bargains thread got me really excited so I dug up my old 486 pci board with a Amd 5x86 cpu that was my oc around 96 when I was in highschool. I built a box from spare parts and a case I recently found on hard rubbish.
Very pleasantly suprised it still works except had to desolder a dead rtc clock battery and socket a new one.
Last night I finally had the chance to have a little session with some whiskey while kids and wife asleep.
Played a few of my favourites which I actually played first on my 286 in cga mode
Test Drive 2 - grew up on this but in cga mode
Golden axe - also cga days for me
Robocop 1 cga version good times
but i have a 1084S???
MiSTer now supports direct analogue video out without the addon IO board
smart arse! haha
That, and the IO board happily supports the RGBS signal needed for the 15KHz RGB 1084S input.
Also supports 15KHz YPbPr, and 31KHz / doublescanned versions of both for VGA monitors.
So far the only thing MiSTer doesn't support natively is S-Video and CVBS. All other signals and resolutions are fine.
October means Halloween means scary games month! Finally catching up on Resident Evil 4. Already owned it on Wii, but bought it again on PS4 just so I could play it in the lounge on the big screen, hahaha.
At first I was all "nah, this isn't for me". Nek minnit I'm at 3-1 and excited to see what's behind every door.
Final Fantasy VI (III) picked up again after leaving it on and off again for several years.
on PS3 with Retroarch, Actually started the save file on a wii with classic controller some 3-4 years ago...
