Box hit Parcel Force on the 13th. I'd have expected a letter by now.

Maybe they are calculating the value of every cartridge individually.

They're drilling a hole in each and every cartridge to make sure you're not smuggling drugs inside them.

Pokemon Pinball Ruby & Sapphire (GBA) is surprisingly good. The physics are excellent, and the animation on the (Poke) ball is hypnotic it's so well done. Looks like my copy is legit too :awe:

Also read that the cheapy "The Incredibles" on GBA was a competent brawler. I'd got a copy in a bundle so gave it a go. It's a little easy but it's perfectly playable. For the cost of a pint there's at least a couple of pints time gaming.

I haven’t noticed this much of a difference between my AGS101 and backlit AGB001s, other then the lower brightness. He’s using it as a drop in replacement in an AGS101. I wonder if the unofficial screens fare better with the voltage provided by an AGB001, or maybe all unofficial screens aren’t created equal, or maybe I just didn’t look hard enough. :think:

That guy hasn't tuned his screen pot. The current ones you don't need to do that (in an AGB), you used to have to do it on all of them (in an AGB).

Ahh, it looks like what I’d read about that but I didn’t need to pot tweak mine so I don’t have first hand experience. I gave him benefit of the doubt. :palm:
