Re: Sega Astro City Mini

Virtua Fighter?

The *arcade* version of Virtua Fighter? Emulated on an SoC? Not holding my breath on that one.

I want one. I don't know why, I dip into looking at the China things and never buy as they never have everything right.

2nding Hoops 96, not just a good game, possibly top in the genre.

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 (& RetroPie)

Had a Tinkerboard doing nothing lying around. Tried Lakka. This is what I always wanted RetroPie to be. Yes, it's RetroArch and I have issues with that environment but they have done an excellent job with Lakka - RetroPie felt like something was inevitably going to fall over every 10 minutes, wherea...

Re: Chewlix C (Chinese Vewlix Capcom)

If that Tachyon board is the one I've just found at $38 a pop with Switch compatibility I'm sorely tempted immediately picking a pair up rather than padhacking anything. Just need to find out if they "hold" a mode through a power cycle or detect what they are connected to rather than require a key c...

Re: Sega Naomi cabinet stepdown mounting size?

May just grab a toroidal one then. It appears to be a doddle to convert a JP Lindbergh to 240v - all of the mains distribution section seems happy to take 240v (I've tested it, nearly jumping out of my skin to the bang emitted by the contactor), so simply putting transformer in line before the distr...

Re: Sega Naomi cabinet stepdown mounting size?

The transformer is the same size? I swear I had an original Naomi transformer that was 1/2-2/3 the size of the Lindbergh transformer I've picked up. Maybe there are multiples. Annoyed at myself for not research more thoroughly at the time - a UK PSU section doesn't even physically fit into a JP unit...

Sega Naomi cabinet stepdown mounting size?

Could someone with a UK Naomi measure the distance between the mounting screws on the internal stepdown transformer?

I have a hunch a JP Lindbergh has predrilled holes in just the right spots to fit one...

Re: The CRT problem.

I used to think 4K would do it but having compared a 4K with a CRT there are still vast differences at the smallest scale. 8K may do it. Noooo. The solution is more about processing and luminance/contrast levels. Throwing millions more pixels in might be satisfying under a magnifying glass but it’s...

Re: The CRT problem.

Considering practically none of the 29" cabinets bar Naomis were exported from Japan, I'd say we are doing alright. Stuffing an LCD in... depends on the cabinet and how well its done. And dont use an ancient LCD, use a good fresh one. At some point in the coming years we'll have sufficient tech to ...
