Re: Analogue Pocket

Runs Gamegear, Gameboy, NeoGeo Pocket, Atari Lynx. i can see the point in fpga for old arcade hardware etc but basically then this is just a p...

Do Super megalo seat units ever come up for sale, if so, what price range?

Just looking for info as I am thinking of trying to get hold of a Super Megalo seat or variation for an emulation set-up - are there many of these left in the UK, and if so, prices/sources would be appreciated.

How much does a MS8-29 weigh?

Might seem a strange request but i am having a new kitchen delivered and need to be able to fit a double oven in a cabinet - the oven i have got coming weighs 51kg. I don't have a clue if i am going to be able to lift it in or not on my own. I have previously been able to lift monitors in and out of...

Looking for a joystick for my Mac - advice?

Loving playing Mame on my Mac, at the moment I use a PS3 Sixasis, which does the job but i don't find it comfortable and there are some issues as i use the left analogue stick for movement as don't like the d-pad buttons.

Re: AWSD/Egret3 Monitor Discharge Advice

Unplug from the mains, get a large screwdriver with a rubber handle. Get a decent bit of insulated wire and electrical tape the bare end to the metal on the screwdriver Connect the other bare end of the wire to the metal that goes around the tube, it is usually a bit springy where it comes from the ...

Mame on a Mac

Have been messing with sdlmame the last couple of days and am really impressed - sure it is no Groovymame for the purists, but in terms of actually having a quick few games i think it works great.
