No, this is not the finalized project, it's just RM2 Endless, a ROM-hack... and part 1 of (what was supposed to be 2 parts, but ended up being 3 instead). If you've any interest in such a thing, I'd value your input on it!

The Lucky Dime Caper Starring Donald Duck?

I still have it on SMS and used to play it a lot years ago. Sadly though I could never beat it and could only imagine what the ending would entail.

Imagine my surprise when I played it on an Emulator a few months ago, beat it, and found that my presumption was right all along!

Wonderboy in Monster Land on the Sega Master System?

I love playing this game although I always get lost on the last level in the labyrinth of tunnels.

What're your thoughts?

Well, I've found out a few things about the manufacturer. It looks like these were made but a company called Universal Arcade Systems, and sold around the San Diego area. The company appears to be gone now. If you call their phone number it dials up a church.

I found this Usenet thread from 1992 talking about them:

Anyways, it looks like to convert it to PS1/2 I will have to drill into the thing. I'll get some pics up soon.

Hello! This is my first post! 

Ok so I got this really great arcade stick off of Ebay for the SNES. It's just like this one here:

Well I have this problem. My plan was to rip out the electronics and replace it with PSX guts so I could use it on my newer games.  BUT THE FRIGGIN BOTTOM IS GLUED ON. Aparently the manufacturer never intended for these to be worked on or repaired or anything. And they don't make SNES-PSX converters. I can get a SNES-USB thing, which would be ok for the PC I guess. Arrrgh. There's a sticker underneath that's mostly worn off, I think it says "Sports Arena Woodworking" in San Diego.  I googled it but I got nothing. If anyone knows if these guys are still around please speak up!

So I have to decide if I feel like pretty much destroying the bottom in order to get inside.

Jul. 27th, 2007 @ 08:44 pm A japanese console of the early 90s.
Ever heard of an 16-bit console which was released in 1987, and is actually 8-bit? I'm sure you haven't. If you did, you guessed it. The PC Engine (Turbographx 16 in the US). This console was actually Ill-fated in the US, for that it only sold a few million copies of the game, and that it was expensive. Not to mention that it was launched in 1989 in the US, at the same year the Sega Genesis (Megadrive in Europe), so the competition was in the dust for the the Genesis/Megadrive was more successful, but the Turbographx 16 went down to the dust. The Turbographx 16 was last sold in the US in 1993, while the Turbographx CD came to the picture, which I doubt that in the US was successful. Today retrogaming dedecates The PC Engine as one of the better consoles known to our beliefs. I think the PC Engine is a very polished console, while for the rest, you figure it out whether it's a great console itself, or if it's trash.

Right now, I'm focusing on the japanese games and etc. related to this very nostalgia.

Focussing on the more unknown consoles.

This episode - The Magnavox Odyssey!

The Magnavox Odyssey was the first home video game system, invented by Ralph Baer, who started work on it as early as 1967. It was then launched in 1972 at the end of which over 100,000 units were sold...

Quick question to you all - What's your favourite retroconsole and why?

For me I'd probably have to go with the SNES because of Sim City and Mario Kart. For me it was the better console out of that and the MegaDrive and showed just how imaginative and innovative Nintendo got with their games. It also had the power - you can see that in Donkey Kong Country and Doom.

I used to (and sometimes still do) spend hours building up huge cities on Sim City. My record for a population is 420,000 - a figure I have never managed to beat!

Current Music: "Dyna Blast" title song (1991;Hudson Soft)
Hello. My name is Sakura_Star1 (for the LJ is Amiga_Ripper_MOD) and I'm a very fan of 80's retro consoles. I had various consoles in my life. My very 1st one was a Commodore Amiga 500. Started working in 1996. In the same year I got another kind of NES clone TV console. But later I also start work in 1997 with a ZX Spectrum. It was also my bro's 1st computer before having the Amiga in 1989.

Here are pics of my NES clone TV console I have:

Got this TV console in 1996. Stoped working in 2003. My dad had to rebuild it several times and testeing it. But now works ok. ^_^

I don't have pictures of my Amiga 500 or my ZX Spectrum. :-(

Games that I like: I am most fan of Brain/Puzzle and Labyrinth games. Also I like Chess ones and "Tetris" & "Pac-mans" too. I made a "Blue Angel 69" shrine in my Live Journal profile. It has all Blue Angel versions and Blue Angels's sisters (sequel games or other droids that there look alike Blue Angel :-) )

Why I join here? Cause I'm a big fan of old Commodores,Spectrum machines and so it all.

Ok...no more things to say....G'day
