  1. I absolutely love DVD features, especially as I find Blu Ray doesn't embrace them in the same way as DVD did with easter eggs, menu layout etc. I'd still say one of the standout DVD's in terms of menu's, features etc were the Terminator 2 Ultimate and Extreme edition DVD's. I even remember Kevin Smith doing some pretty good ones for his DVD's.
  2. Actually I forgot to ask for those who have the GB Color IPS mod. My understanding is that it makes use of the IR sensor to adjust the brightness via touch but does the IR sensor still work? I know it doesn't make use of many games but I wasn't sure if it disables the feature or if both still work in unison. I only ever recall using it with Pokemon Gold & Silver for the colour Pikachu pedometer.
  3. Yeah I've got the screwdrivers for those so that's not a problem, cheers.
  4. Cheers, give me a PM if you find any, I only need a couple.
  5. Hah! It looks like that Ebay link I posted are the RetroSix ones . But yeah there's a huge difference in price compared to their site, it gets bumped up with VAT and postage. I think those 3D printed brackets I was looking at are made by them as well. Looks like I'll be giving those screws a go. Thanks again!
  6. Thanks, I've seen some 3D printed ones on Ebay I might go for to give it a try. Where did you get your IPS screen from? Also, does anyone know where I can get some screws for the original DMG Gameboy? I managed to wear the 2 outer screws where the battery compartment is and I want something to replace them with. I've seen these but I'm not sure if the ends are too sharp for them: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Game-Boy-Console-Shell-Screws-Philips-Color-Pocket-Original-Advance-GBA-GBC/254582237921?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649
  7. I recently discovered about IPS screens and seen some videos on Youtube with some GBA SP mods so I thought I'd give it a go as a lockdown project. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. I decided to do a reshell at the same time as I thought if I'm changing the screen I might as well make the most of it. I wanted something better than my original cobalt blue colour so I went for one of the aftermarket cases I saw on Ebay. I don't think it's a design I've ever seen that was official. I've been thinking of doing one for the Gameboy Color but I'm still unsure at the moment.
  8. I'm also playing this through Playstation Now with the 7 day trial but I think I'm going to pace this through. So far I've been doing what I call the "Assassins Creed" method of collecting, by collecting what's currently available before doing the next story missions. I find it's a bit more bite-sized instead of doing side missions right at the end all in one go. Even the collectibles I find enjoyable because there's nothing too repetetive. So far I've collected all of Peter's bags and currently visiting all the NY landmarks. I love how they included Marvel fictional buildings amongst the lot, "Oh look! It's the Alias Investigations building!". I'm also tackling the Kingpin buildings at the same time. They seem a bit tough but luckily there doesn't seem too many of them either.
  9. Yeah I know, but even so, still impressive!
  10. It still blows my mind they used Unreal Engine for The Mandalorian.
  11. Yeah luckily it wasn't too much of an issue, I think it was mainly when we were playing Lie Swatter it came across at how quick I was to respond to the answers and the same for that last round on YDKJ. One thing I forgot to mention is I noticed someone made a conversion of the UK version of YDKJ into a Javascript page as well as some of the other language versions which came out in 1995, they also seem to support multiplayer: https://www.ydkjs.eu/
  12. Mixer looks a lot like Twitch or is it something that works alongside these services?
  13. I did this at the weekend via Zoom, whilst it worked out well I found the screen share was lagging but no problems with the audio. I had my PC as the host and we connected our Fire Tablet to join the host in order to appear on camera, this was where I noticed this was lagging (and a good way to test). Our friends also confirmed there was a bit of lag but it seemed tolerable for them. I can't find any options in zoom to adjust the screen share settings such as frame rate etc. Has anyone found it better via the virtual webcam method? I don't want to make it feel like an unfair advantage with our guests when we have the PC in front of us.
  14. I thought some peeps might find this useful in regards to the Genki dock when I was talking about how difficult it is to change the travel adapter heads and if anyone else is buying one. I ended up messaging Human Things (the Genki people) on their Kickstarter page as there's no actual documentation as to how you change the heads. This is what they came back with: EDIT: I thought I'd just add to this rather than swamping another post on it. Their Kickstarter email just came through and mentioned this as well as a gif of how they do it:
  15. I had a Kickstarter email saying it had been dispatched and had a Royal Mail tracking number. For some reason though the tracking number never seemed to work and then lo and behold it arrived late last week. Once I checked the tracking number again on Royal Mail's site all the info was there, so I'm not sure why it didn't give me the progress prior.
