  1. Trying to find a way to play this the "right" way on an emulator... As you all know, in the arcade, this is a twin stick... left stick controls movement, right controls firing. It can be set up on the 7800 by having two joysticks, one in the player one port and one in the player two port, then using them just like the arcade (I'm guessing it works like in the arcade at least, haven't actually tried it on real hardware). And of course there's the awesome custom controllers that combine the controls into one easy to handle controller with two d-pads. I've been using a Playstation 2 controller, with a PS1/PS2 to USB adapter to play emulated games on my laptop. In MAME, I can configure the arcade Robotron to use the two thumbsticks on the controller as the two joysticks and it works decently. I'm still not that good at the game, but it feels pretty "right." The emulator I'm using to play 7800 games is RetroArch, though, and there doesn't seem to be a way to configure it to have controls for both player 1 and 2 go to the same controller. I've reached out on a discord channel that has helped out on RetroArch problems before, but the only response I've gotten is that they either don't know or don't think you can. One suggestion was to set both players as going to keys on the keyboard, then using that, but I think that would be less satisfactory than the method I'm having to use. Any thoughts? Anyone here good with RetroArch that might know a work around?
  2. Yeah... those brain guys... how do you get away from the homing missile things? Or can you? Do you just have to shoot them before the fire?
  3. Yep, I'll give it a shot in emulation. I've been playing a little of the Robotron 2084 arcade game in MAME with a Playstation 2 controller, using the two thumbsticks for control. Seems to be working okay, so hoping I can get it to work here, but we'll see.
  4. Another thought... JJ & Jeff is on there, which is good for Japanese players. In Japan it was Kato chan and Ken chan, a licensed game based on a television show. With the unlicensed TurboGrafx version on there, Japanese players can play it without Konami having to pay the license. Saw this point on discord, so I can't take credit for thinking of it myself. Edit: Instead of "unlicensed TurboGrafx version", I should say, the "license-free TurboGrafx version". lol... it's not like it's some bootleg game or a Wisdom Tree kind of thing...
  5. Also... While we've been happy that there's some CD games on there... Aldynes and Daimakaimura were SuperGrafx games! So that'll be cool to play those!
  6. Full line up announced! Looks like both the NA and Japanese versions will be getting the same games. Not sure on European version as I haven't really looked into it much and the news is still new. A couple of problems, though... Seems that it will have both TG and PCE versions of Dungeon Explorer, Neutopia I and II, and Y's Book I & II. Why? That's wasted space in NA as 99% of people are only going to play one or the other. Also, there's a few games that are missing that people are already complaining about. No Splatterhouse. No Gate of Thunder. No Legendary Axe games. I think Konami could have done better by eliminating the doubles and adding in those other games. But, they didn't ask me. lol Also, Snatcher is here, but... will it be translated? If not, more wasted space for the NA version. On the plus side, that all means that we will be getting the excellent Castlevania Dracula X Rondo of Blood. TG-16 games: Air Zonk Alien Crush Blazing Lazers Bomberman ‘93 Bonk’s Revenge Cadash Chew-Man-Fu Dungeon Explorer J.J. & Jeff Lords Of Thunder Military Madness (Nectaris) Moto Roader Neutopia Neutopia II New Adventure Island Ninjaspirit Parasol Stars Power Golf Psychosis R-Type Soldier Blade Space Harrier Victory Run Ys Book I&II PC-E games: Akumajō Dracula X Chi No Rondo (Castlevania: Rondo Of Blood) Aldynes Appare!

  7. I don't have many McDonald's toys in my collection, but I did get the Mario one hitting the yellow box from this set. My gf works at a thrift store and brought it home one day. I also have a red koopa shell that you pull back and let go and it runs across the floor for a bit. Think it's also a McDonald's thing, but not quite sure.
  8. Played a little more of it the other day. Was testing out streaming on the Xbox One. (I've started doing some streaming on Twitch... not much, but it's fun.) Anyway, I need either a new controller or to fix the one I have. I don't like using the thumbstick for this and my d-pad has issues. It's doing a double or triple click when I press left, so while going one direction (when pressing right on the d-pad) everything is fine, but going the other direction (pressing left) it kind of hesitates and stutters, throwing timing off and making things more difficult. I did still get a new high score (for me) though, so it's not all bad. Still hate that the enemies congregate at the top when you die and don't start over at the bottom like in 2000. That seems a major flaw to me and makes recovering from a death super difficult.
  9. Just for the halibut... a vid of me playing the first level... it took a lot of tries while recording to get through it in one ship, and as you can see, I didn't last long afterwards. Not my best effort, but the best I had while recording. There are a few parts in there that I'm not sure how I got through. lol
  10. Hiya Rocky! There's several people who are on both Atari IO and AtariAge. You should see several familiar names.
  11. This IS a rough one. I'm used to playing LifeForce on the NES, but this one steps it up a notch. The enemies are so fast! Anyway, I got past the first boss once. Will play some more and hopefully improve. 45500
  12. This is a pic I took a while back. I liked it enough that it became my background on my home computer and has been ever since I took it.
  13. Also, @Kid A, that looks awesome. I've GOT to get a Trinitron at some point.
