  1. Sounds good. I shall try it. Thanks.
  2. Who has tips for making it through the minefield section? That's where things always go wrong for me.
  3. 2' 19" 55 Getting a little better each time.
  4. "The Oregon Trail" handheld game by Basic Fun -- sold at Target. I got one on Black Friday and finally had a chance to play it this week. My overall impression: It's a lot of fun for those who remember the game. My high school had a lab full of Apple II computers that had this game, so I have fond memories. Maybe that's why I like it so much. The screen is very nice, and I like the solid/substantial buttons. My first attempt -- I lost two of five party members, but made it to Oregon. On the down side: It only plays one game. It's too bad they didn't add a few other classic MS-DOS or Apple II games. And the $25 price is way too high for what it is. I got it on BF for $16, and that feels like a much better price point. Here's and LGR review on Youtube too: Anyone else have one of these, and what did YOU think?
  5. Looks like mine will make out today too! Happy holidays to you all!!
  6. Hinty McHint: I just finished my Secret Santa shopping...now I wait for items to arrive. Then wrap and ship.
  7. Peace and blessings to all during this holiday season.

      Same to you and yours Rick.

  8. How about $30 of treats for Snarfle? Or a HO-Scale box car for Willie! I'm sure we can come up with something good for you, man!
  9. You may have the SwordQuest Water World prize --- NOTHING!
  10. It would have been cool to see them use it even on games that didn't really need it. For example, it could have been used to pause, reset, start, select so you could do that from your seat instead of going back to the console on all the games that came after it's release.

    RetroPie - Raspberry Pi Emulation

    Have you checked out this documentation? https://retropie.org.uk/docs/Spinners,-Trackballs,-Lightguns,-and-other-Mouse-Devices/

    RetroPie - Raspberry Pi Emulation

    Have you tried a real mouse? Attach a mouse and see if that works. If yes, it indicates a broken set of twisters I'm pretty sure the controller config for retropie allows you to set up a mouse as the x and y axis (instead of a joystick) I've seen people set up a Tron machine, which has both a joystick AND a spinner. So I highly encourage you put your issue on the Facebook group. It is fixable, and I don't think you need to edit any text files unless you want both a joystick and spinners.

    MAME Help

    The moment US auto makers jumped the shark. The Mustang II. The only thing it had going for it was product-placement on "Charlie's Angels"

    RetroPie - Raspberry Pi Emulation

    i am happy to try and help. I don't have any kind of twisty knob controller to test with, though. There is a Facebook group for retropi, and you may have good luck asking for help from those experts. Look for groups named "Retropie Makers" and "RetroPie". This is fixable. I just wish I had a similar controller so I could start experimenting and testing.
