    Play Expo - Blackpool 27 Oct

    Well if this is indicative of how busy it'll be we'll have no queue's to worry about on the multi player cabs.
  2. Sure is, I'm lucky enough to have the jamma version. Proper fast n' furious shooter (and 10p gobbler)!

    Mega Drive. Yeah!

    Snap! I have the same Sony but only use it for when I'm on the PC as background viewing. Great little TV. I remember getting mine with one of my first paychecks 20+ years ago. £499 plus another £499 for the matching vcr - can you imagine that now? My MD, nes, Snes, n64, wii, x360 and ps2 are all connected to a 4k Samsung 55". Bar the fact it only takes RF or HDMI it's been fine. I use rf for the MD.
  4. Hi all, Anyone from these here parts going along to Play in Blackpool this month? I'm introducing my younger brother to it this year so hopefully we can get on some of the multi player games together. Shame we don't all wear name tags so we can recognise who's who. Paul

    I assume you manually create the folders via the SD card in a PC too then drag n drop ROMs?
  6. How long did it take to think these up? You must have too much spare time...says the man making cat jokes.
  7. You can fix a bricked one by placing another cat (of the opposite sex) in the room and leaving them alone. There is some sort of interface which takes place after which you need to wait for the system to reboot and it will spawn new cat unit(s). These are aimed at wifes / girlfriends so she'll be thrilled.
  8. Yes, that's pretty much what I was inelegantly trying to say. I have the 1200, the CF card loaded with WB and a good selection of games so I just need to splurge on an 8mb expansion. Might be a winter project to get it all up and running again. thanks Paul

    Currently playing...

    What delightfully violent offspring
  10. Yeah, I eventually got it working but it was such a ballache as I recall. Compared to preparing an SD card for a SNSES or MD it seemed unnecessarily faffy. Some games work but the main ones I wanted just don't so it was either back to floppies or just put it back in the loft.

    Play Expo alternatives

    Awesome - yes pins are a good part of it for me as I don't have one and clearly you can't emulate the experience. PM me a link or details if you don't mind. What's the charity you're raising for? Probably seen you at the shows before, we should all wear name tags!
  12. But if like me you thought they would run all amiga games you're in for a surprise. No-one seems to mention that you need an accelerator card as the overhead running the CF means a decent chunk of games won't run. Frontier, DotC and many more of my favourites. To be honest the 1200 and CF is back in the loft as I found it disappointing and unnecessarily complicated (getting the roms' etc, no drag and drop functionality like most other retro solutions).
  13. Hi all, Since taking over the Blackpool and Manchester events (amongst others) things seem to have become a bit patchy in terms of regular events. The tempo of Blackpool early (May-ish) and Manchester late (Oct-ish) was just nice. Avoided the busy Christmas and summer seasons well. It's a long slog till May 19 for the Manchester show which I believe is the next in the calendar so is there anywhere else that's sprung up to fill the gap?
  14. Perhaps I do. Missed the fact there was only the one on PS2.
  15. Nice find. I got it on PS2 recently. Never played it before and it's actually kinda fun.
