  1. I just wanted to share an overhead photo of my home.  It's finally been updated to show the solar panels we had installed last summer!  Sun-powered retro gaming.

  2. I wanted to ask if anyone here has experience doing Super Nintendo emulation on a Windows PC. I have the cartridge, and there is a SNES in my attic, but it's probably faster for me to set up an emulator.
  3. There's a lot of "Skip List" in the TNG library for me. The entirety of season 1 IMO. Luckily, the show got much better in season 2 and on! I've got no complaints with your lists. I really like the episode "Darmok" and would promote that one to full "Must Watch" status. "Chain of Command" was a 2 part-er, wasn't it? So take those two off, add Darmok and "Parallels". I guess it's hard to pare it down to only 5! There's a lot that TNG did really well. But there are some aspects of the show that I disliked. The Romulans, for example. Why do they have the forehead piece? Shouldn't they look like Vulcans? What's a Vulcan without an eyebrow raise? And those giant shoulder pads and unflattering hair-do's -- WTFeklar! Remember the Romulan Commander from TOS "The Enterprise Incident"? That's the look they should have gone with. "Star Trek: Picard" fixed the Romulans for the better IMO.
  4. Well dad-blast-it. I've got a Retron 3, and you're right...it DOESN'T WORK! Oh well, I'll have to try emulation I guess.
  5. Bonus points for @MaliciousCarp for bringing up the 2600 Starfox AND getting a picture with it no less.
  6. I've decided to try replaying the original NES "Legend of Zelda".  I don't think I ever finished the game, and it's been 30+ years since I've tried it.

      One of my favorite games ever! I usually play trough it at least one time a year. :nintendo_mario_whistle:

  7. @RadioPoultry, I'm so impressed with your score -- great job. I really tried hard to get to 50K. It was a lot of fun, that's for sure.
  8. Justin, I don't like your setup. I LOVE your setup. Looks great. Enjoy.
  9. Tip - hit the moving Qotile to get big points and an extra life.
  10. 278,579 - Game 6 = Ultimate Yar. I need to get Greenween over here, as this is his game.
  11. I had one too. It was the floating point unit in the Cyrix processors that was terrible. And this was right at that moment in time when 3D gaming was coming into vogue -- ie floating point math was critical.
  12. :Howard_Scott_Warshaw::Howard_Scott_Warshaw::Howard_Scott_Warshaw: Happy HSW day!  :Howard_Scott_Warshaw::Howard_Scott_Warshaw::Howard_Scott_Warshaw:

  13. 48,020. I'm pretty sure I could never do this well again. There's a series of jumps that I must of lost 3 lives on.
