This is great. What an awesome follow up to the Jag Bar. Lynx and Jaguar don't get the amount of attention they should. What a creative original thing to do. Looking forward to more :thumb:

I'm stoked :D That's one of my favorite handhelds and it doesn't get the attention it deserves. That thing was about a decade ahead of its time.

Well here is the first official episode for the Lynx Lounge.  It's way longer then I wanted but I needed to get a bunch of stuff out of the way up front, then we can dig into the games. Thanks for watching.

Another great video! Looking forward to seeing the video capture using McWill's excellent VGA out. This will really set your videos apart as most others either try to film the screen or use emulation.

Also, it would be great to get a drink recipe episode. The drinks of the Lynx Lounge! :)

The capture is working great, I've already captured about 6 games so far and it looks and sounds amazing - love that Lynx sound.  

I will post the homemade Kalula recipe a little later. Drinks of the Jag Bar and Lynx Lounge, classic!!

LIttle bit of Jag, little bit of Lynx.  Checkered Flag vs Checkered Flag… Who will win?

Battlemorph was amazing. I don't understand the guest's trashing Battlemorph.

 

I always liked Checkered Flag on Lynx, it was a nice way of doing Pole Position II on the Lynx and not surprised there was a Checkered Flag Lynx bundle released at one point.

He's a HUGE Star Fox fan… So when I pitched him the game I told him it was like Star Fox but you weren't on rails.  Obviously he was thinking the game was Star Fox and was probably let down.  Personally I like Battlemorph, and I like Star Fox, two different games but I like qualities in both.

 

I really like the way CF plays on the Lynx, I also had Super Monaco gp on Game Gear and it wasn't as fun or in depth as CF.

It is sad when I know the ol' Lynx will win the CF comparison hands down without even watching your vid yet. Unless you are just looking at still shots, which with Jaguar CF, you almost are...

 

I need that VGA out LCD screen upgrade. But my Lynx turns on, but won't show anything on screen, but at the same time there's no sound or any indication it's only the screen, so unfortunately I may just have to get another Lynx. Because I don't know that the upgrade would fix my problems. I was going to order a new screen from Best Electronics, and if that wasn't the problem, then start trouble shooting it more. But after seeing this upgrade, I don't want to just replace the screen with the same old screen! A conundrum for me...

Your lynx problems sound like cap problems, you might have bad caps and I believe there is a cap kit that can get you back in action.  I know ebay has a few options for the Game Gear so I would think that a lynx one is out there too.
