  1. Sweet Electronics Recycling find ! But will they work? Was stunned to find these but they sat for hours in sub zero temps so I waited for them to warm up. My usual ramble, feel free to forward to about 4 min 50 sec to see what I found. I hook them up, cross my fingers and ....well check it out. While you are at it be sure to check out the channels I mentioned as well!

  2. Yeah "Launch Edition" has become a buzz phrase applied to many classic consoles, it literally means nothing. ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜‚ I have seen it applied to a variety of consoles for no particular reason other then sounding cool. Just do an Ebay search for LAUNCH EDITION and see what I mean ๐Ÿ˜‰
  3. AWESOME ! SWEET SETUP! I like your style!
  4. Beautiful vehicle! I know nothing about cars but I likes what I see! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿป
  5. Hah well you certainly covered all the ones off the top of my head AND MORE. I've little experience with PCegine titles in general, hopefully, maybe over the next week or so I can get around to trying more games and contribute here. ๐Ÿ˜
  6. Our job is done ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜‰
  7. Sorry not in this case (always read full descriptions) on bottom specifically of listing: This AV/RGBS booster does work with US Turbografx 16 since the expansion port pinout are same as PC Engine.
  8. Sadly NOT outside of a miracle, I am no longer actively collecting due to restricted funds and room and the CD based options are not exactly cheap. Can not justify it even if I HAD the funds. Just have to stick with regular TG16 and my Everdrive, considering that has been in a box since about 2012 (see my post elsewhere ) doesn't seem a prioroty. I DID really badly want one for years but it never happened so it is no longer practical. First world problems.
  9. NOPE - because it is a CD based game. TurboEverdrive only loads Card based games / roms. The loading emulation is completely different. Same as the Everdrive for the Sega Genesis, it loads only cartridge games NOT SegaCD games. Basically the TurnboEverdrive will allow you to load the entire Card based library whether TG16 or PCengine (you just flick a switch for the particular console and it will patch roms on the fly to load games designed for the other.
  10. What a beautiful bad ass console and kick ass to boot ! ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’•
  11. Found my TG-16 systems in a box! Well, actually seems one has a really nice composite mod ! Forgot, I must have bought off someone on atariage or something. Along with a nice TurboEverdive (bought off StoneAge gamer in 2012! according to my receipt I kept with it, BY GOD TIME IS FLYING ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ) I REALLY got to make the time to give it some proper playtime, just not enough time in the day, I swear I tested everything back when I got it and made a video and it has been collecting dust in the box since , I need to correct this. 2 TG-16 consoles and a couple turbopads / power supply / RF cable between them. I even got 2 of those piss poor designed back covers ๐Ÿ˜œ, I DO recall though someone selling a much cheaper mod that basically consisted of literally just a composite stereo AV cable but the other end just slipped over / connected to a few pins of the expansion port on the back of the TG16. There are definitely cheap ghetto options that will give you the same result as the rare expensive official add-on or fancy mod. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Example: If you are handy make the cable yourself : http://www.cgquarterly.com/2010/04/26/building-a-turbografx-16-pc-engine-composite-av-cable/ If not buy a cheap ready made cable. https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Composite-A-V-4ft-RCA-Cable-Adapter-for-TurboGrafx-16-SuperGrafx-PC-Engine/223161022034?hash=item33f56ef652:g:MlsAAOSw~XBbqWFr Anyway, this has been a fun distraction and who knows? Might even compel me to play some TG-16 or even make a new video. I am sick with a bad cold or bug right now but this was a fun distraction. ๐Ÿป
  12. From the linked site : " https://www.game-tech.us/mods/turbografx-16/ " Composite Video + Stereo: The TG16 already has composite video and stereo outs, but you have to find one of the attachments to have the jacks: TurboBooster, TurboBoosterPlus, or a CD dock station. All of which are rare and expensive. I think a mod can also be done fairly cheaply though not the most fancy looking. I have a couple TG-16 consoles packed away (like most of my collection ๐Ÿ˜› ) and I think at least one had a composite mod done. I will post an image if I come across it.
  13. RIP Dick Miller character actor in 100's of films. He was 90 so a good long life. ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜ขhttps://variety.com/2019/film/news/dick-miller-dead-dies-gremlins-terminator-1203124265/

  14. ๐Ÿ˜ข(CNN)James Ingram, the soulful, smooth voice behind R&B hits like "Just Once" and "I Don't Have The Heart," has died at the age of 66.

    Ingram's longtime friend and creative partner, Debbie Allen, confirmed the news of his passing to CNN on Tuesday.
    "I have lost my dearest friend and creative partner James Ingram to the Celestial Choir," Allen wrote in a tribute on Twitter. "He will always be cherished, loved and remembered for his genius, his love of family and his humanity. I am blessed to have been so close. We will forever speak his name."
  15. Halo and Army of Darkness are the only 2600 Homebrews I have and I really like them!
  16. Welcome to the forums, I am already subbed to you!
  17. Looks can be deceiving but THANKS. If I EVER found something like that I would be checking 2x every day ! ๐Ÿป
  18. Electronics Bin Check in my Winter Wonderland 2019 MaximumRD Published on Jan 23, 2019 Woke up to a new snowfall so of course I checked the electronics bin to see if there is anything free stuff worthwhile, walk with me.
  19. My NES loose cart collection! Join me in some rambling and memories. MaximumRD Published on Jan 9, 2019 YES technically not my first video of 2019 as I say in the video BUT my first "REAL" video as far as I am concerned ๐Ÿ˜œJust a look at my NES loose cart collection, some memories rambling all off the cuff. PLEASE enjoy and comment on any titles YOU particularly enjoyed or despised or have a interesting history of. Also as always feel free to correct any info, these are fading memories for me and I only go by what I recall off the top of my head.
  20. Some folks seem to be having an issue with the downloaded archive "Atari 2600 VCS ROM Collection" by ROMHUNTER / ATARIMANIA. Here I simply demonstrate the integrity of the currently posted archive. It's seem to download and extract perfectly fine so not sure why they are having an issue. Thanks to ROM HUNTER and his continued work in preservation. GET YOUR LATEST 2600 ROM archive HERE: http://www.atarimania.com/rom_collection_archive_atari_2600_roms.html
  21. An ย eerie coincidence to start off 2019 ? All on same day? โ€œ3 celebrities dead at the age of 76 and all had nicknames / altar egos โ€” R.I.P. โ€œMeanโ€ Gene Okerlund, โ€œSuper Daveโ€ Bob Einstein, and โ€œThe Captainโ€ Daryl Dragon,โ€ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ข

  22. ย I cannot believe it, just after my video the other day and I said I never find anything good in electronic recycling during holidays? Today I found a laptop! Guess someone got a new one for Christmas, in take, great condition, Silver 14 or 15' HP Pavilion! Of course could not log in, don't know specs yet but it came with WINDOWS 8 so already better than the old HP Pavilion I was playing with Linux. Will make a great secondary laptop. Looked it up and running recovery mode on it NOW.

      That's incredible. Why would somebody just throw that out? You know that might be good just for doing MAME and other stuff.

      Considering the timing I suspect someone got a nice new powerful laptop for Xmas ๐Ÿ˜›ย Ah well, fine by me, they literally sat it gently on top with the power supply right beside it. Guess they figured nobody could log in anyway but hey in the wrong hands....fortunately for them instead of bothering to access the hard drive by various methods to bypass the login password or hook up to an externally to look at the files, I just looked up how to access HP RECOVERY and after setting it to original stock install of WIn 8 since it is a valid license I was able to update free to Win 10. Not the fastest CPU but it is still better than the previous old HP laptop I found a few years back (I use that with Linux MINT). There are a lot of older retirees here as well so who knows? Maybe someone bought gramps a new laptopย and he just placed the old one in the bin. I figure better I got it than someone else or having it actually end up at the recycle depot ๐Ÿ˜›ย

      Let's see.ย  AMD architecture, Radeon GPU, and 4 GB of RAM?ย  That sounds like a basic gaming laptop setup.ย  Would be perfect for some Steam games and definitely MAME.ย  Amazing what you find in that recycle bin.ย  Just goes to show you that good things come to those that wait.
