Picked up a neon light XBox 360 sign for $20 shipped. I'm not sure if that's a deal, but it was listed as "XB360" and ended without any bids. My little bro is into the 360, so I got it for him, sort of as a holiday present. :)


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: JC on November 18, 2006, 12:27:23 AM
Well, I haven't gotten it yet to confirm what seller paid to ship it, but the shipping was listed as $15, with a start bid of $10. After the auction ended, I e-mailed the seller and told him I'd take it off his hands for $20 shipped.

F-Zero for the SNES for 4.98. 8) The thing with it was that there was a crack in the bottom part of the cartridge where the connectors are.  There was also something loose inside.  I opened it up & found that the pieces were still there, so I glued them back together.

It's great  being able to restore an old game back together. :D

I still haven't played this - is it great?  I've only played F-Zero X before, which I recently got. ;D


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nes_pwnerer on December 07, 2006, 10:10:52 PM
F-Zero for the SNES is a classic. It's not as fast as its N64 and GC counterparts, but still a good time. My only gripe with it is that it's only 1 player (though this can be forgiven, as this is a launch title for the SNES) and everyone really slides around the track except Samurai Goroh (Fire Stingray). Actually, just be the Fire Stingray; fastest and heaviest vehicle, great for the Death Wind tracks!

Another thing: No one can die but you and you can't knock the others around. As soon as you touch them, you go flying into the wall! No matter though, as it is still great fun and rather challenging.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: Jedi QuestMaster on December 08, 2006, 10:06:53 PM
It's only one player? ??? That sure bites, I was expecting it to be 2.  So I take it Mario Kart was released later?


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: madman on December 12, 2006, 01:42:59 AM
Yea, Mario Kart was released a bit later and contained a DSP chip.  The SNES MK is a great game, the N64 one was pretty good as well.  Gamecube version stinks, I wouldn't have it but I got the pack last year with the Cube, 2 controllers and MK for $99 :)

Title: Re: Finds (All Others)

I don't think Nintendo will release that game in the West.
It was exclusively produced for Platinum members of Club Nintendo. 8)

I guess your only chance to play this is buy it with a premium in an auction or try to get the rom and play it on a flash cart.

Or play a hacked rom of it when someone comes around to doing it. :P


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)

Why a hacked rom?
Isn't the normal rom enough? ;)

It should be available soon I guess. A rom of the Game & Watch Collection was out very quickly, too.

It's an Egret II, Japanese "Candy Cab."  They are smaller in size than typical American arcade cabs, but still have large monitors.  This one has a 29".  The plastic "Egret II" header cracked, so it's just the exposed light right now.  I have to glue this one and then order a new one from Japan.

Title: Re: Finds (All Others)

Everything is fixable.  If it's the monitor, put a new monitor in it.  $300 isn't bad if it's a dedicated cabinet.

Japanese Club Nintendo is great.

European Club Nintendo sucks. They have nice presents sometimes, but those are always sold out within a few minutes.  :-\ Last time they had a cool Wii bag, announced it on the page. I looked and it was already not available any more. Same today. They had "Anno 1701" (DS) for 5000 stars. I looked and all were gone already.
I've over 15000 stars and there's nothing to buy! >:(

I got an original gameboy for around $4.

I was surprised because i got 4 and 6 the same day for nearly 4X the amount 5.
i'm josthoping it's the same deal with 1 and 3, i spent $27 on CIB FF2.

Update: my friend GAVE me his n64, complete[all leads etc.]. Pretty nice of him i would say.
Hopefully when another friend comes back from holiday he siad he would give me his SNES stuff, he siad it would be CIB he just can't find the box, but no complaints either way.

Today I just bought a whole batch of NES games, and one of them was a SuperVision cart! On the top of the cart it said,''Super Mario Bros. 3.''  Me, thinking it was just the normal Mario 3 with the racoon and power ups, wasn't really surprised of the SuperVision cart...until I popped it in my NES! The game turned out to be none-other than the japanese version of Super Mario Bros. 2! :o The game has a hacked title screen, replacing the title by different game sprites, and you can chose ANY level you want before you start your game! Really cool find. :)


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: JC on July 16, 2007, 04:02:26 AM
That sounds too cool. I'd love to see some pics of the cart/screen, if you don't mind.

I also wonder how much it could be worth? SuperVision carts are pretty hard to come by, and Super Mario 2 japan pirates are also  pretty hard to find. :)


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: manuel on July 16, 2007, 07:03:29 PM
I just bought an XBox (complete with box) with 6 games, 2nd controller and the DVD kit for 72 Euros shipped.
Maybe I can sell 4 of the games (as I don't like them) and make the box itsself a better deal. ;) Although it's already a good deal, seeing that used XBoxes usually go for 70 Euros without games. :)


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: JC on July 16, 2007, 11:21:47 PM
That's really neat. You don't see too many Supervisions, and I'd never seen that game by the company. The title screen hack is poor...I guess they tried. I don't get why they do that. It's not like hacking the title screen makes stealing the game ok. I did a quick search over at NintendoAGE and they don't have SMB3 listed. So perhaps this is a truly rare find.

Well, I filmed some footage and tried to upload it on Youtube, but they keep saying my movie exceeds the movie limit. But what I don't understand is my movie is less than 10 min....what do I do?


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: FamicomFreak on July 18, 2007, 01:31:05 AM
Maybe the video is uncompressed which is a bigger size and might be too much for the limit. Well you should try breaking the video into segments and upload them in parts.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: vealchop on July 18, 2007, 11:43:30 AM
theres a 10 minute TIME limit and a 100MB SIZE limit. You have come in under both.

Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: vealchop on July 18, 2007, 03:00:34 PM
Depends on how you compress it. Theres dozens of video compression programs. Turn down your quality, frame rate, or even sound quality to bring down the file size.

You have to be listed as a "director" I believe.

With some other weird pirates. A cart with a altered beast picture. I thougt when i buyed it "Yes altere beast on the nintendo, Cool" but it isnt altered beast but a poor side scrolling beat em up game (Also a picture on the link) And mario 4. Thats a very heavy cartridge.
Also a mario 6 game.(Tiny toons with mario) :-\


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: keiffer01 on August 04, 2007, 02:55:47 PM
That's really a SuperVision cart! Great find! And since you say you don't like pirates very much, maybe you could sell them on ebay and make yourself some extra cash. :P


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)

Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: keiffer01 on August 04, 2007, 10:13:08 PM
Well I never saw one like this, so I don't really know. But oftenly SuperVision carts sell for over 40$, but it depends on the game that it contains. It might sell for around 40$ or more. Also your Mario 4 and Mario 6 carts might sell for alot :)


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: Har the cat on August 05, 2007, 05:39:25 AM

Post by: JC on August 05, 2007, 02:21:47 PM
I tried posting in this yesterday but my post never went through (crappy dial-up). I don't see a Supervision in there. Maybe I'm not looking right, but I see Robin Hood and an NTDEC. And if you have a Famicom Supervision, though rare, I couldn't see it getting more than $20, unless the miracle of eBay brings NES Supervision collectors into the realm of Famicom collecting for one great battle over a rare Famicom Supervision cart. Possible. I know a heck of a lot of NES collectors who, for whatever reason, don't do Famicom collecting. And with there being few, if any, discovered Famicom Supervisions, there aren't any Famicom Supervision collectors. But you never know with eBay.

You should get it.
There are a lot of English walkthroughs around, so you can play the game even if you don't understand Japanese.

I got a couple of magazine lots. The first one was .99 cents while the other was 2.25 I needed to get me some back issues of nintendo power and EGM because my subscriptions were up and I was out of money so these auctions were the best thing that could happen! Saved me quite a bit.

Why does it take them so long? I just wonder, because anime fansubbers have translations of a complete 23 minute episode of animes in 1 or 2 days. :o


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: keiffer01 on September 22, 2007, 01:11:10 PM
Well, translating and programing the text in the game is no easy task. You can't really compare fan subs of anime movies to a game translation, because the game has lots more writing and all the writing needs to be programed to fit in the game. And not only that, but sometimes while programing text in cetain parts of the game glitches might appear that cause the game to be unplayable, so they need to fix these also. It's better of them to take more time on the project and have a near perfect translation than rather rush it all and make it ugly and bugy. :)


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: manuel on September 22, 2007, 01:20:47 PM
Hmm... that has me convinced.
Maybe I should look into this scene more. Sounds interesting, although I don't know ANYTHING about programming. :-[

You can check out romhacking.net (http://www.romhacking.net/) (and their Getting Started (http://www.romhacking.net/start/) page) if you want some info.

The basic hurdles while translating a game from Japanese to English are:
1) You only have as much room (that is, number of bytes on the cart/rom) to store the translated text as was used by the Japanese text.  As I'm sure you know, Japanese is a far more succinct language than English (although I'm pretty sure the Mother series uses only kana), so your translation ends up being too long.  There are solutions to this problem, such as rom expansion; numerous forms of text compression; and clever script editing, but it's nearly always a hurdle you have to overcome.

2) The text boxes are only a certain size, and may not be suited to English text.  This is another issue of size, though it's dealing with physical space on a screen rather than space on a chip.  Imagine how much you could say in Japanese versus English in a 10 row x 3 line text box.  This kind of thing can get *really* messy if you're dealing with menu systems (which, being an RPG, I'm sure Mother 3 has plenty of).  Again, solutions abound.  There's variable width font hacks (VWF hacks) to make the English text only take up as much room as needed (think of it as typing in Arial instead of Courier New).  And there's menu hacks for resizing the game's menus (this can be really tedious, depending on the game).

3) Game script format.  Some games are very internally organized and have the game's script all in one place in the rom.  Other games have the script strewn about all over the place.  The latter makes tracking down the complete script and inserting in the new script very difficult.  I'm pretty sure Mother 3 (the whole Mother series, actually) falls into that category.  There's also the issue of "control codes" in the script.  These are used to demarcate various actions in the script.  Stuff like new lines, pauses, bold text, spacing, etc.  Again, I'm pretty sure Mother 3's script is full of these as well.  And then there's script compression and, possibly, encryption.  I don't know if Mother 3 uses either of these, but these are really more of a annoyance to a talented rom hacker than a problem.

The reason for the hold up, I'm pretty sure, is my third point.  The game's code is simply messy (from a rom hacker's perspective).  A translation hack of Mother 3 will take time, talent, and persistence.  There's plenty of that floating around the Mother/Earthbound fan community, so, for the rest of us, it's just a game of patience.

(PS - never ask a rom hacker "when is the translation going to be complete".  They really hate that question and the answer is always "it'll be done when it's done" (or something far more vulgar  ;D).

I hope the mother 3 translation is not left out like many other translation projects. I always wanted Captain Tsubasa 2 in English although I heard of an Spanish patch which will work just as well.

I found a mint grey official N64 control on ebay for $16 shipped(These are getting very hard to find at this price.)

I also was at EB Games and bought an N64 with a mint yellow official control for $15 plus tax.

Not bad if you ask me!

I bought Perfect Dark PAL Version for $1.99 at the goodwill on Monday ..I just want to know if it works..Will it work on the Gameshark Pro, NUS-NPDP-EUR


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: UglyJoe on December 11, 2007, 06:19:15 PM
It should work with any Gameshark.  The NTSC and PAL codes may not be interchangeable, though.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: MaxXimus on December 11, 2007, 06:20:07 PM
Nope. You will need something like a Passport Plus III for it to read the CIC from your region I believe.

Wanna sell me it? :)

OOps. Thought you were someone else. Yes, It will work. you may need a boot code though.

Hey people, I've been gone for a while, but continuing playing, collecting and writing.
My site is down temporarilly, now we're trying to make a funny-famicom-related site, so you can laugh of Famicom people :P
But there I get some games that I really don't know what the label says (soon I will post it in the identification thread).
The argentinean is back :)

Some SNES games like Mario Kart, Star Fox, Krusty Funhouse, International Superstar Soccer y Super Street Fighter 2.
a Dpac , I'm making my own arcade with MAME, so I get this dpac, a video card and the wires to hook up all together, some Famicom games [pretty variated], some Genesis games also, like Chuck Rock II and Zombies ate my neighbours.
And in the other pics, my new stuff :

A Portable Media Player with NES/Famicom emulation, you can play famicom games everywhere, you must connect to your computer and put some roms into it (6GB memory) and you're done. The screen is 3" and it's extremely cheap.
Maybe I could write a review of it.

Great stuff. Where did you get all those awesome magazines. I used to collect Club Nintendo in my younger years but then I moved here and they didn't had a subscription method so I missed out on some awesome magazines! Last year my sister bought me some old ones they were selling in used book stores so I was dazzled and amazed at looking at all the NES codes with horrible picture quality lol!

I finally decided to hit a thrift store and found some interesting games. I got all these for 3 dollars. The top game is a Sega PC game which I never heard of called Tomcat Alley. I never knew Sega released PC games in the past!

Yeah, Sega was pretty involved in PC games back in the day. A lot of their console and arcade games recieved PC ports, and if I recall correctly they actually published some non-Sega developed PC games, like they do nowadays with stuff like Condemned.

I don't think they're rare like Mario 8 or anything, but they're certainly not common. I couldn't imagine they did too well, sales-wise.

The music is horrible, the sounds are weird, and the controls aren't great. You have to collect all of the emeralds before crossing the finish line or you lose, which is stupid.

The pokemon pirates i bought off ebay are chinese pirates with hacked title screens (The pokemon logo) Also, it seems the save feature is broken on these pirates. This is a common problem with gameboy pirates though I believe.

Also, I bought the Super Famicom version of The Lion king.

Most of the time pirates won't bother on putting an expensive SRAM chip + a battery on the cart board so you can save your progress. They want to make a quick buck.

Most of the time pirates won't bother on putting an expensive SRAM chip + a battery on the cart board so you can save your progress. They want to make a quick buck.

I haven't looked very much, but the pokemon yellow pirate has a battery in it.

I personally like the SNES version better now that I've played the Genesis version. The music is missing the zombie moaning sounds but other than that that's about it. Well I enjoyed playing the SNES version back in the days with my friend so I have a bigger bond with it.

Genesis flash cart. Will that be made like the nes one?

Yep. And it'll be able to run tons of games since the Genesis doesn't have that 'hundreds of different mappers' thing the NES has. But OTOH it's a 16 bit system so it requires 16 bit ROMs (or two 8 bit ROMs in parallel).

that's BLAST PROCESSING !!!

Give me flashcard for my birthday

Only if your birthday is on Feb. 29th ::)


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nurd on June 17, 2008, 12:23:16 AM
My uncle's birthday is Feb. 29th


Also, I found a bunch of EPROMs inside of
"some old thing that added words to movies but was broken so I took it apart completely"


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: 133MHz on June 17, 2008, 12:53:31 AM
Yeah I've got a bunch of EPROMs too, in fact a box full of 'em. And building an EPROM burner is no great deal, but an EPROM eraser is a completely different thing. You cannot make one yourself, and they're pretty expensive (about 100 dollars around here), and without an EPROM eraser you can't reprogram those nice EPROMs you stole from old equipment :'(


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nurd on June 17, 2008, 12:56:03 AM
Would the light from one of those Safety Glasses Disinfector things work?

Or does it need to be even more..um... exXtreem.. than that?


EDIT: BAARHG

http://www.qsl.net/iz7ath/web/02_brew/15_lab/05_canc/english/pag02_eng.htm

Also, If you need that crazy light to erase them, Why would they put stickers over the window?





Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: 133MHz on June 17, 2008, 01:03:24 AM
The light from counterfeit bill detectors doesn't work
I don't really know what a Safety Glasses Disinfector is. Maybe?

Because the sun also emits that kind of UV, but very few of it gets to the Earth. But enough of it to erase an EPROM if left under sunlight for weeks.

Careful with that thing, it's dangerous to the skin & eyes!


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nurd on June 17, 2008, 01:12:09 AM
THEN WE GO TO HE SUN AT ONCE.


They have these all over our school for some reason.

It holds like 30 pairs of Safety Glasses.

The inside walls are mirrored.

You close it, turn a nob, which locks the door and starts a timer for 30 minutes.
I'm pretty sure it shoots YEW-VEES at the glasses


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: 133MHz on June 17, 2008, 01:13:59 AM
If the thing locks up then probably it's that kind of YEW-VEES ;). Why not ask?


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nurd on June 17, 2008, 01:16:17 AM
Because it's summer and the school is locked.  :-\

I could probably find one at the university, though.

I will microwave one and see what happens.


UPDAYT:

I could see very bright blue sparks through the window. It was cool. Also, the glass has brown spots.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: ericj on June 17, 2008, 01:20:05 AM
Microwaves aren't UV light, they're electromagnetic waves--UHF, SHF, & EHF. The safety goggle boxes probably sterilize the goggles with UV light.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nurd on June 17, 2008, 01:22:36 AM
I know its not UV, I just wanted to see what would happen.


Didn't the guy who invented microwave something die from radiation?

Also, that the Zyclon-B was invented by a Jewish guy?

I think that is Irony.

The lack of an EPROM eraser is the only thing stopping me from converting that pile of old EPROMs I have into custom carts and stuff.

A programmer can be built with $5 worth of parts. Erasing them is the real deal.

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!
Who gave you 100 SFC games??? :o I want, too!

Very nice. :D


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: ericj on June 29, 2008, 12:47:09 AM
There is a seller on ebay who typically sells lots of 100 SFC (sometimes famicom) games, usually no dupes, for anywhere from $65-100. His shipping to North America is a little ridiculous (usually over $100 from Japan), but nontheless, it would still be around $2 a game.

Manuel, you could probably get pretty cheap shipping on them.   :P

Either way, a very nice birthday gift!


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: manuel on June 29, 2008, 02:02:41 AM
I know where I can get them for cheap, but I want 'em free!  ;D  ::)

Shipping from Japan to the US just IS expensive. 100 carts weigh between 10 and 20kgs (depending on the carts.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: FamicomFreak on June 30, 2008, 11:53:37 PM
Yeah I have only gone through 10 of the 100 but good stuff in there. If you are in Japan, they are sold for cheap. I have one cart that says 100 yen in it so yeah CHEAP!

Yeah about the router... it looked like somebody inserted a screwdriver into every LAN port and bent several pins outwards so I just thought better get a new connector, but with patience and a small pair of pliers I managed to straighten every pin ;D! Maybe I don't have to replace the connector after all :D.

But all I've found so far are old slot and some pachinko machines.  :-\ meh

You may be able to lure Miyamoto into your house if you got a pachinko machine (he looooooves it)... then you could have him make games for you. :o

Who doesn't love Pachinko? It makes up 40% of Japan's yearly spending on entertainment. That's no chump change, just balls, balls as far as the eye can see! Ha!

It's Fuurai no Shiren 2.

To wentle: I don't like pachinko. I consider it waste of time, money and it makes you deaf. (Ever been in a pachinko hall? )

No, I've never been to one. I will whenever I finally visit Japan though. I don't exactly know why but I want a pachinko machine to have in my place. It just seems interesting to me.

Post by: wentle85 on August 30, 2008, 01:08:33 AM
I got this off a girl who came into work not knowing we don't buy systems this old. I got the lot off of her for $10! My douche of a coworker tried to tell the lady it was worth $40. She cock clocks every deal anybody at work tries to make with a customer by telling them it's worth the highest price you've ever seen it go for on Ebay. Another girl at word was about to get Marvel Vs. Capcpm 2 (Dreamcast) for a couple of bucks when asshole steps up and says it's worth $200! Even my manager has told her to keep her mouth shut. her family is rich so she doesn't understand the concept of haggling and underpaying someone for something they would just throw back in the closet anyways.

Which Swordquest game are you getting? One of them is insanely rare and worth hundreds. I would recommend:
Pitfall 2
Donkey Kong
Donkey Kong Junior
Breakout
Space Invaders
Ms. Pacman
Popeye
Mario Bros.
I'm sure I'm forgetting a bunch.

Try to get a 32 in 1 cart for your Atari 2600.
Unlike NES/Famicom multicarts, games are selected by dip switches on the cart itself or reset-based logic instead of a menu.

That's more common than you might think. I had a friend who looked just like him(including glasses) then I move across the country and my new manager at Game(stop looks exactly like him as well. Weird thing is these guys have the exact same personality as well.

-hucard
Pachiokun Juuban Shoubu

-cd
Pachiokun Maboroshi No Densetsu
Pachiokun Warau Uchuu

Just wondering... does the Light play GBC games?

Nope.  It was released between the Gameboy Pocket and the Gameboy Color.

Then why didn't the Color have a backlit screen? (http://www.clicksmilies.com/s1106/fragend/confused-smiley-007.gif)

Freakin' Nintendo. (http://www.clicksmilies.com/s1106/sauer/angry-smiley-009.gif)

Just won this on ebay; http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&item=180310975704

I've been dying to have one since a long time! Can't wait to receive it! ;D

Nice! I'm still partial to the old brick, but I always thought the light was damn cool.

There isn't that much great stuff in it. It has a magic carpet game and some hacks. That's about it.


I think the SOR2 game came with a genesis that's why it says not for resale.

Believe it or not, Atari had wireless controllers for the 2600!!   ;D

And I believe Acclaim released wireless controllers for the NES, didn't they?


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nurd on January 02, 2009, 12:42:20 AM
Yeahp.

I have several wireless controllers for NES. They aren't that great, but they aren't awful.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: 133MHz on January 02, 2009, 12:42:30 AM
Almost every console had their share of wireless controllers (either infrared or RF), but battery life and line of sight communication was always a disadvantage. In my opinion the first successful wireless controller was the GameCube WaveBird. 16 channels, lots of range and vastly improved battery life. Nintendo even played safe and published lower stats for its performance, in the real world the results were even better!


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: ericj on January 02, 2009, 01:18:55 AM
I have wireless controllers for the Famicom, but they don't function very well at all. Not very practical, but kinda cool nonetheless.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)

I have a wireless controller for the NES that works quite well.  And it was indeed made by Konami.

Post by: turbo D on January 08, 2009, 03:19:30 AM
If you guys loved WonderBoy 3 on the Master System, then you HAVE to play the TurboGrafx-16/PC-Engine version! Seriously, it is awesome. It is called Dragon's Curse  on the TurboGrafx-16 and Adventure Island on the PC-Engine. They both offer either password of save feature (Save feature requires a TurboBoosterPlus, Ten No Koe 2 or Duo). The Only differences between the TurboGrafx-16 and PC-Engine versions are the names and titlescreens. There is a HUGE difference over the Master System however. These including awesome grafx and sound ( some my prefer the master system's sound, I don't).

I just remembered I have a Pokemon Emerald pirate cart for GBA.. I'll post pics once I find it..

The shell is black instead of, well, emerald..
The game plays exactly the same except for incorrect grammar, :"cussing", and a save feature that occasionally corrupts..

After I beat a random Team Aqua member, instead of saying whatever he should of said..he said (in all caps): "GODAMMIT WHAT HELL HOW HAPPEN??"

Speaking of pirate Pokemon games, I LOL'd so hard at this awesome crystal hack..plays exactly like the original except for the hilariously, poorly translated english text

Post by: FamicomFreak on January 20, 2009, 10:56:20 PM
Oh yeah when pokemon gold was going to come out we would all wait for the translation patches to be released. It was a lot of fun playing halfway translated patches. Then the 100 percent one came out but by that time the game was already released here in the US.

Got Animal Crossing: City Folk this last weekend :)

Post by: L___E___T on January 22, 2009, 09:42:48 PM
Man, ratings systems cause me no end of trouble, I've just had to get 2 games rated by the ESRB and PEGI.  PEGI is a load of work, ESRB is even more ridiculous, they're like nazis now and rate the most stupid things teen, but enough of that.

Nice additions!!  I just bought a NES powerpak which should have got here by now, will post a review when (if) it arrives :(

Yeah, the whole game.  You can walk around, talk to people, pickup stuff, use tools (I think).  You can do a lot without really pointing and moving.  It's more relaxing that way.

If you're looking for the JP release of Pandemonium, it was released there as a different title - 'Miracle jumpers' with different graphics and stuff.  So you that's a bit of a giveaway in itself :)

I only know cos I had to do some work for it last year, the miracle jumpers version looks way nicer imo.

For slightly under 300$ I couldn't resist any more.
Ordered Little Big Planet together with it.

Assholes delivered a bashed about box though!   Actually it's quite a nice statue, it's really weighty and sprayed nice, I had impressions that it'd be a small cheap tacky spray painted plastic thing.   It's really big and quite heavy actually, not bad at all.

Supposed to be rare, but I just found out that Nintendo Europe gave away a ton of these to print and online press magazines!  There's only 3800 though in total and mine is at the 3100 mark so I guess they'll be running out soon!


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: manuel on February 23, 2009, 10:52:45 PM
It was the most expensive prize in the European Club Nintendo.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nintendodork on February 23, 2009, 10:54:20 PM
What's the most expensive item in Japan?  In the U.S...
It's G&W Collection ::)


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: L___E___T on February 23, 2009, 11:50:08 PM
In Japan I'd say it's the limited famicom coloured GBA SP, unless you can suggest something else Manuel?


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: manuel on February 23, 2009, 11:56:08 PM
That GBA was not a regular prize, as far as I know, so that shouldn't count.
The most expensive regular prize right now is a thing called "Star Tenbillion" (?).

It's 650 points.

ONLY 650 POINTS???
Are points equal to coins?  Because if they are...that's messed up :P


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: manuel on February 24, 2009, 12:00:39 AM
I think the points and coins systems are different. In Europe it's stars and again very different.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nintendodork on February 24, 2009, 12:09:09 AM
Yeah...
What is the Point system?
In the U.S, 30 Coins per DS game, and 50 coins per Wii game.  1 Coin equals roughly one dollar.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: manuel on February 24, 2009, 03:08:24 AM
I explained it a bit in this thread:
http://www.famicomworld.com/forum/index.php?topic=2823.15 (http://www.famicomworld.com/forum/index.php?topic=2823.15)

Points depend on the SRP of the game.

I got some cool street ighter 4 pins a colleague gave me that capcom just sent him in the post, he gets all sorts of free stuff sent from when he was a journo - I'm after his megaman 9 kit :P

DJDAC is tenchu 4 good?  I hate that Ubisoft gave them all american voices I hope that Japanese audio is still an option..  I've read reviews but I's appreciate your feedback more!

I doubt they would put Japanese in the American release... since only a small percentage of people in the U.S know Japanese :-\

with subtitles my friend, they did it in the previous two if I remember correct.  Plus the Japanese version was made first, the work is done and it's kind've easier from a coding point of view.

If you can't have it in Japanese , that is a huge oversight of them and I will kill my friend at Ubi if that's the case!!

Made some nice scores from Play N Trade in Richmond, VA

Dungeon Explorer and Android Assault/Bari Arm (Sega CD)
Cross Fire (Genesis, for anyone that's never heard of this game before, this is another video game adaption of the TV show "Airwolf", as it's called Super Airwolf in Japan)
Shining the Holy Ark (Sega Saturn)

PS. The Holy Ark cover is a photocopy.

Post by: manuel on February 26, 2009, 02:32:41 PM
Yeah, it's great. I like it a lot more than the black one.


One thing that bugs me though is that it won't play my PAL-DVDs.  :-\ They're region 2, same as Japanese, but it won't play them, because they're PAL.  >:( Hoping for a firmware update here.

Post by: nintendodork on February 26, 2009, 07:53:04 PM
When is the white one supposed to come out in the U.S?  If I ever got a PS3, I would get a white one to match my Wii, Famicom, DS, etc.

Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: L___E___T on February 26, 2009, 10:13:29 PM
Yeah price drop soon, real soon apparently.  But bear in mind big price drops usually come before a new hardware 'thing' like a new colour, a re-design, a new peripheral, that kinda stuff.

At the end of the day, if you want a PS3 there's not a bad time to buy one, just maybe there's a best time.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)

Post by: nintendodork on February 26, 2009, 10:32:22 PM
Well, either way...it'll be a little while before I buy one...
At their current price, $500 is a little too expensive for a 13-year old :P
I think my Famicom is all I need :P  I just spent about $50 on it, so, like I said...it'll be a while

There's a company that are selling NEW intellivision games for cheap by the way - google will find - I thought of buying a couple cos the box art is intense, but I decided to stay true to my famicom limit.  When I say cheap I mean a few bucks each, so cheaper than you'll find on used stores by lots.

NES games also .95 cents each
(http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff280/luiszena/DSC00548.jpg)
Got these Guitar Hero games for 11 dollars at circuit city. I bought two so that I can sell one and get my money back and of course keep the other one har har

(http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff280/luiszena/DSC00549-1.jpg)
The girl at the cashier register couldn't find the barcode for this guide so she let me have it for free. Can't beat that!

That's about it. I have pretty much sold all the genesis games and NES games already thanks to my friend who owns a retro game store and needed them for his shop. I did keep the ones I don't have but I already got my money back that I spent and a little more har har har. Enjoy!

  • NES-like Famiclone $2
  • Famicom pirate cart $1
  • ZX Spectrum $4
  • 7" car LCD screen (missing screws) $3

I'm gonna have a great time testing all the stuff out ;D

Oh, forgot about the pirate!
I'm gonna try it right now ;D. It's probably nothing special though.

EDIT: Too bad I was right, the games on the cart are nothing special: SMB, Track & Field, Duck Hunt and Galaxian. The label says it's got a Pokemon game when there's none!. The only remotely interesting stuff on it is Dream Mary and Moon Mario, a SMB hack with low gravity.

Yo! Noid is actually a pretty good game.  I didn't think much of it at first, but I kept coming back to it and getting about 1 or 2 levels further each time (It is kind of like Contra in that respect, as it seemed quite hard at first, and eventually I could beat it with no Konami code with no problem).

I beat the HECK out of that game. A bunch of times.

I went to play it again a few months ago, and the battery was dead and my saves and records and stuff lost :(

I'm weird like this, but once a battery in a game dies, I don't play the game again, I will try to find another one, and play THAT one instead.

Hey, I didn't purchase anything last time (except a wonderswan and a famicom) But... I got two philips in2it from my father...

I got this from a site about it:

In 1996, Philips of Netherlands designed a handheld & electronic organizer device mainly aimed to be "an educational but fun tool for girls". About a hundred of these were manufactured and given out internally at Philips for testing. Also known as Philips KidCom. About 5 of these were used in Finland in a study about what children think about using a device for something like messaging and other things.

Do you guys think its very rare? My father worked for philips holland so... We have 2... If it is rare... I have one that doesnt work. Can someone then help to fix it?:P THANKS! ;D

Seriously...holy &^$*ing crap for what he got them for  :o  Only time I've ever gotten anything for under $2 that was worth a bit more than some of those games was my fantastic shape Mermaids of Atlantis (surprising because it was at a Play'n'Trade store and not a flea market).

The controls are not as good as tennis in wii sports. But they are definately not bad. You can adjust the controls as well in the game. I'd say if you really love playing tennis on the wii you should get the game.

Got a free Vectrex from a friend.  He tested it last week, but it's not working now :(

I'm afraid to try and fix it since I don't want the CRT to kill me.

Post by: ericj on March 16, 2009, 02:09:23 PM
It's easy to discharge a CRT. First, unplug the tv.  ;) Next, take an insulated flat head screwdriver and attach a lead from it to the metal housing on the tv (but no to any logic boards). Slide the screwdriver under the anode cap until it touches the anode aperture and, once it sparks, you've discharged it. It's always a good idea to keep an ongoing lead in place under the anode cap while you're working since CRTs have a tendency to re-charge themselves. There are youtube videos and text documents online showing/explaining  how to do this safely. Give it a try!  :)

Found a Panasonic microwave oven that somebody threw away near my house.
I brought it home to discover that the digital timer was completely dead... but the rest of the oven was fine.
So I rewired it to work with a standard toggle switch :).

So now I have a spare microwave.... 'Is it a good idea to microwave this?' anyone? ::) ;D

/\  An automatic disk resurfacer is a worthwhile item to have...the hand crank ones are a pain and don't work nearly as well (and leave more/uneven resurface marks).

EDIT:  Thought you meant the disks had scratches or crap on them.

I got Pokemon Platinum today.  It's much better than I expected.  A few minutes in the game, I already noticed several cosmetic changes, and there are a few new characters in addition to the extra gameplay (Battle Frontier, etc.) and added storyline.

EDIT** Pic:
 (http://i44.tinypic.com/k2lpi9.jpg) I also got Sonic Adventure 1 + 2 today in the mail.                     They feel so...right.. being played on a Dreamcast instead of a Gamecube :P It's so cool that there was a system that was made in 1998 and was better than one made in 2001

Today I picked up a Sega Dreamcast with two controllers, hookups and a bunch of games for really cheap, so now I can say I'm the (proud?) owner of a Dreamcast. You can let me in to the club now ;D.

It didn't read any discs at first, but after a quick laser recalibration and greasing the moving parts it works flawlessly :D!

BTW is it normal for the drive to be HORRIBLY LOUD when reading and seeking?!

Post by: nintendodork on March 29, 2009, 07:35:36 PM

How do you like your new DSi?


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: L___E___T on April 05, 2009, 12:51:48 PM
I don't have a picture, but my friend/colleague bought a fresh UK DSi on Friday, so I bought his nice 2 month old Japanese white one for..  £50, that's only $75! 

Ok so I can't play any DSi carts yet but seeing as there aint any I'll manage - it might be useful for when/if I can unlock it or if there's a really great piece of Japanese downloadable software I can put on it or something.

Failing that I might mod it / paint it or plain just play DQ5 on it.  I've still got my regular DS lite for homebrew etc.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nintendodork on April 05, 2009, 01:56:29 PM

[picture]
I don't have a working DS lite right now, do you think it would be worth it to get a DSi?  Or should I get another DS lite?


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: L___E___T on April 05, 2009, 02:03:41 PM
I would say it all depends on what you use it for.  If you buy games legally and are a nice person who only uses it for that, get a DSi, if you buy games legally but also like playing gameboy games on emulators etc and other homebrew (like me) then get a regular used DS lite and take advantage of the amount of trade ins appearing at present.  If you want a DS to keep playing pirated games on an R4 card or similar device, they won't work on a DSi and although one will pop up sooner or later it's not really a valid option right now.

I think the downloadable software for DSi has the potential to be really exciting, let's see.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nintendodork on April 05, 2009, 02:27:48 PM
One thing I thought would have been fun to see on the DSi is a GB Camera skin for the camera

If, and this is a big If..  IF, they are releasing the entirety of DS games as downloadables (which I have heard that they are) then they may also be releasing GBA and GBC or even GB games as virtual console downloadables too.  I'd love to see game gear games on my DSi but I think that may be stretching it.  All the C64 and MSX games would work perfectly though (I think these are really nice as emulators on DS with the keyboard on the bottom screen!) and these could be very easy to swap over.  Although Wiiware isn't all as successful as Nintendo would like to think of it, if they conglomerated Wiiware and DSiware along with virtual console they'd have something way, way better than XBLA and PSN put together I think.

Nintendo have this up their sleeve I think, they've rebranded all the Wii points too so that they can market them for DS apps/games, now called just Nintendo points.

Like I said, this is a big if but in my opinion they have to do that to keep up with what Sony has planned.  I trust what I hear as it's always bang on, I have to watch what I say though for obvious reasons.

I don't think people have actually realised it yet, but DSi is going to become very popular in the next 6 months, way more than just an upgraded DS because of the software, but time will tell of course :)

For that I'd reccommend waiting to anyone who's not sure.  Pre-orders are making it difficult to get one at the moment anyway but give it a month or two if you ask me and things should look a lot brighter for the DSi.

I'm going to wait and see but I think either way I'll buy it anyways. I hope that playing gbc and gameboy games thing is true. That would be neat.

Post by: L___E___T on April 05, 2009, 07:07:21 PM
That's not something I heard, it's just something I guessed, but I think it's a big missed opportunity if they don't.  Anyone ever play Metal Gear solid on GBC?  That's what metal Gear NES SHOULD have been like, that's one exploitable right there - think of all the mario land, pokemon and all the famicom ports that made GB and GBC a success then add the whole GBA library, seeing as they removed the slot it makes total sense to have a 100% back compat machine I reckon. 

The only thing I'm not sure of is the licesnsing.  All or most of the publishers that did games on DS are still around to do deals with, but the GBA and even older than that?  We could definitely see old Nintendo games but I'm not sure about all the others from a business point of view.

I'm just speculating!

Not here, Sonic 3 is incredibly rare and expensive, while Sonic 1 and 2 can be found anywhere for dirt cheap. And unfortunately, the people selling it for cheap on eBay most likely won't ship it outside the US :-\.

Got this on eBay...  Apparently that Final Fight Guy game is worth something, but it seems the seller doesn't know that since he gave attention to Zelda as if it were special when FFG is more rare and valuable (going by eBay sales).  It's been about 12 years since I've owned a Super Nintendo and I wanted to have at least Zelda.  I expect to sell FFG and trade in or sell the other games as a lot.

Not pictured above: the massive multi-language user manual that takes up half of the box and weighs more than the DSi itself.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nintendodork on April 10, 2009, 06:32:38 PM
:D You're right!  The operations manual is printed very professionally, but only the first 108 pages out of the 330 pages in the book are in English.  It feels heavier, but it's actually more thin than the DSi when compared side by side.

Even the quick start guide is fairly bigger than I thought it would have been.  Nintendo didn't even need to make it..because the DSi tells you how to use the camera when you first start it up.

The Yard Sale gods smiled upon me again... I found one great deal and what I found out was a rariety with a amusing tale to tell.

The first item found was a dreamcast complete with 4 controllers, two memory cards and  7 games [mostly sports football, baseball, basketball with a racing game mixed in] in a box for 18 $ , I'm really happy to have this machine as it's been kinda championed as a unsung console, I am sure a bountiful library will follow.

 (http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y33/RCoehrs/videogame%20collection/DSC00733.jpg)

the next grab bag was indeed in a bag, a ratty Kroger bag, and when I spotted it, I didn't even know what I was holding, I never heard of this system ever. after purchasing the bag and all it's contents for a nice %$ price tag I came home to do some research..

That's cool. I bought a Game Doctor SF7 from ToToTEK last year but I never really used it... I ended up selling it because I needed some money. Unfortunately I never got to use it for ROMs, which is kind of a bummer. I had to order a power cable and I didn't have floppies/parallel cables to copy games onto the system.

The wire position would drive me nuts.  It took me a little while to get used to the right side positioned wire on my Famicom.  Though it also took me a little while to realize I could move freely without worrying about yanking something when I got my PS3 with the wireless controllers :P

You'll get used to the wire pretty fast. It's no big deal.

As Manuel said, you get used to it fast. It's really not a problem since it's connected to the wiimote. And I usually lay the wiimote on my lap or next to me while using the classic controller.

The Dreamcast is the same way... although, it has a little notch where you can re-route the wire to go out of the top instead of the bottom.

I just recently picked up the following from Play N Trade:

Road Runner (It was Tengen, so why not, my first Tengen cart buy) with NES sleeve
Game Genie
SMB, Duck Hunt, Track Meet with NES sleeve
Mario Is Missing (Curiosity sake)
Paper Mario

Later I'm gonna trade in my regular SMB cart for a quadri sports cart (the one with the funny switch on the back.

Edit: Well, Mario is missing is pretty bad, I don't understand it. So I got one more game in its place and some things on the way:

I got my first and last Camerica game: Quattro Sports (switch is interesting)

On the way: 3.8 and 4.5 game bits
Bible Adventures
a gray zapper from a friend of mine is it works and is "not held together by duct tape."

All right, guys.  I just got back from a big shopping district in a city about 45 minutes away...which is where I was since noon...and I'm posting stuff in this and the NES Finds threads.  This is all the other stuff I got

Games:

Japanese things:

Yes, that thing in the bottle is a marble.  I'll bet Manuel has seen all of this stuff before :D  The text on the strawberry gummy candy is hilarious.  And all the candy inside is individually wrapped!  How fancy is that?

DOMO

I approve of all of your purchases.

Ramune is nommy :3


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nintendodork on May 10, 2009, 03:17:43 AM
Yes, yes it is.  They had three flavors; strawberry, melon (which is what I got), and then they had one that was all clear, and the label was blue..and it just said carbonated beverage.  So I have no idea what it was.  This wasn't post worthy, but I also got some chocolate cookie dough bites :P


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: manuel on May 10, 2009, 03:21:40 AM
Lamune is great. The marble is a very nice touch. I'll have lots of Lamune in the festival season this year.  ;D

English text on Japanese stuff is hilarious in most cases. i'm used to it by now, but sometimes even I think, WTF??!! Hire a proofreader or a real translator, guys!  :P


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nintendodork on May 10, 2009, 03:25:48 AM
You better send me some of it.  It was $3 for a single bottle where I got it :(  AND IT'S SO DELICIOUS

And the strawberry candy made me feel welcome.  It tells me to "Please enjoy the strawberry gummy, it is delicious."


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nurd on May 10, 2009, 03:32:45 AM
Out of the few I have had, Original (That is the clear one with blue label) and Melon are the best flavours.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nintendodork on May 10, 2009, 03:33:45 AM
How many different flavors are there?  Also, what does Original taste like?  I imagine it would taste something like Sprite, maybe?


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nurd on May 10, 2009, 03:37:34 AM
there are likes tons of flavors XD

It's kinda like sprite? But with like a fruity, almost bubblegum flavor.

Did you buy it at World Market? That's where I've seen it


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nintendodork on May 10, 2009, 03:42:21 AM
I have never heard of World Market before. XD
I got it, as well as the rest of the stuff in that pic at a store in Von Maur (anyone?)  I forgot the name of the store though..it was something Entertainment.  Half the store is Japanese stuff (Anime, manga, etc.) The other half is just general movies and collectible junk.  But the only edible Japanese stuff they had was the stuff I got..and Roasted Peas 0_o

I was at the swap meet & didn't expect to find much, but turns out there are still people there selling a bunch of old gen console stuff.

Among them, I got these Game Boy pirate multis:

(http://i498.photobucket.com/albums/rr343/JediQuestMaster/GameboyMultis.jpg)

I paid $10 for one & $7 for the other.  I'm not quite sure if that was a good deal. :-\

The 23 in 1 only has 5 games:  Bomberman, Might Bomb Jack?, a weird puzzle-looking game called Tesserae, umm... Master Karateka, & Bubble Ghost - an interesting game that involves blowing (a balloon?) around obstacles.  I don't know what to do on the third stage. :(

I believe I paid $10 for the 23 in 1 which I'll let go for $7, & I believe I paid $7 for the 55 in 1 which I'll sell for $10; but this doesn't include shipping. :(

Today I finally got a Wii.
And I only paid 8000 Yen for it.  :P

The story behind is that I helped my wife's uncle to buy a notebook PC. He used my points card at the electronics store and this brought me 7000 points, worth 7000 Yen. After that he said that the computer I searched for him was 10000 Yen cheaper than the budgeted for. So he gave me the 10000 Yen as a "thank you". While we were at it I bought the last Wii in stock (for the time) with only 8000 Yen of my own money. They even threw in a decent D-terminal cable for free and 500 points on my points card.  ;D
Oh happy day.  :D


P.S.: Before anybody asks... D-terminal -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D-Terminal (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D-Terminal)

Thanks,  nurd.
I'm sure you have those in the US. You buy something in a store, show your points card and you get usually 1% of the price in points. Later you can use the points to buy goods.

Well, it is Nintendo related so why not.

I got an email not too long ago from Club Nintendo saying that I needed to use my coins because they were gonna expire later in ther summer. So I used them, and what did I get?

Well, I wasn't a fan of the DS game card cases/stylus sets, the wii remote holder looked stupid. I didn't like Game and Watch or the Mario Party 8 playing cards and didn't have enough for the Hanafuda cards that Nintendo used to be known for.

So by process of elimination, I got the Mario hat DS game rack and it looks a lot better in person than in the picture... some assembly was reguired but there were instructions.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nintendodork on June 12, 2009, 02:17:28 AM
Hey, speaking of Club Nintendo, I forgot that it's June!  At the end of June, Gold and Platinum members get a special reward.  I wonder what it will be. :o


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: manuel on June 12, 2009, 02:39:38 AM
Don't they tell you on the homepage?

I already got my platinum reward for last year, a Mario hat. I think I'll have to post some photos later.

(http://i43.tinypic.com/jt8dnb.jpg)

Do they in Japan? :o

EDIT* Damn, it seems now there is an Elite status above Platinum.  I would have an Elite status if I saved all my coins (1,130) but I spent most of them on the G&W Collection.  I only have 320 coins now, and that means I'll have Platinum at the end of the month.  Makes me wonder what each rank will get.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: manuel on June 12, 2009, 03:16:13 AM
They reveal the prize in Japan, but after the 1 year period ends. In Japan, the Club Nintendo year goes from Oct 1 to Sep 30.

And if the system is the same, it doesn't matter how many coins you spent. In Japan, all points you earn during the year count towards your status. Once you have 400 points, you've got platinum status. Even after you spend those 400 on something, the and have 0 points left, you still have 400 status points.

So in your case, if you got all your 1130 coins during the last year, all of them should count towards your status.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nintendodork on June 12, 2009, 03:24:35 AM
I hope it's like that.  My status didn't change from Platinum to Elite, but they didn't show an actual icon for elite on the FAQ, so maybe it's just added on.  I don't know.  I wonder what Nintendo's first prize will be in North America.  I guess just about anything is better than the stuff we have already.  I'll be happy with whatever :)

It looks like I made elite status, I got more than 600 coins. Now I just gotta remember to check in July 1.

Any ideas what the prize may be anyone?

Does it say "Elite" beside your account name, or does it still say Platinum?

still says platinum, but I know I made elite status because to be elite, you gotta make gold or platinum. And according to the email I got, the prize thing will come in the fall of this year.

He made a sale thread, and he's selling them all for $30, so, somehow, he must be making a profit! :o


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: Pikkon on June 17, 2009, 12:36:26 AM
Not really,I bought the games on chance,didn't know I would get so many sports games plus so many of the same game.If I do make a profit I would make around 10 bucks for the most.

Also if I really wanted to make a profit I would sell the games individually,some of the games I put up sell for 14 bucks a piece on ebay.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: manuel on June 17, 2009, 01:33:12 AM
Many of cheap games lots consist mostly of sports, pachinko and other gambling related games, because those are the cheapest and exist in abundance.

Good stuff 133mhz! I myself got me some new stuff. Another copy of Mario RPG to resell when I get back and a famiclone among other stuff!

(http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff280/luiszena/DSC00562-1.jpg)
mario rpg for 5 bucks!

(http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff280/luiszena/DSC00563-1.jpg)
I got these magazines for around 33 cents each for most of them and the others by trade.

(http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff280/luiszena/DSC00564-1.jpg)
I actually got this the day I arrived for 3 dollars.

(http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff280/luiszena/DSC00565-1.jpg)
I also got these pirates for 3 dollars each. The multicart is for genesis but not sure what it is.

(http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff280/luiszena/DSC00566-1.jpg)
I got this awesome famiclone for 10 dollars. It came with built in games and slots for both NES games and famicom games.

(http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff280/luiszena/DSC00567-1.jpg)
Finally, picked up these two pirates for 3 dollars each. Always wanted a kid dracula pirate.

So that's about it, I'm going to go all out in my last trip to the markets. Cya later!!

Title: Re: Finds (All Others)

It still says Super Bros 8 on the cart... it says Don Doko Don 2, too. Weird pirates. Arrrr!


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: ericj on June 24, 2009, 01:54:50 PM
My Mario 8 has Don Doko Don 2 written on the label, too. I think FF's cart is a Mario 8.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nintendodork on June 24, 2009, 02:40:38 PM
No, he told me last night that he tested it on his Famiclone, and even though it says Mario 8 on the label, it's just Don Doko Don 2.

I had to buy a new Super Famicom and it came with 6 games including a copy of Super Mario Bros. 4 and Soul Blader, both sealed in their original plastic. Actually come to think of it, the SMB4 cartridge did not have the plastic baggie on it so it is possible that the game was resealed.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: manuel on June 28, 2009, 06:05:35 AM
I think both were "resealed". I'm pretty sure new SFC weren't sealed in plastic. I could be wrong, though.

Yeah I was kinda of disappointed when it wouldn't read the discs and I was so eager to try it out. I have a friend online that could help me out on some things I could do to try and make it work but he was offline. I decided to try the most common stuff and it all worked out. Now I need to get me some good 3DO games which I heard there aren't many.

@ Rob64: The game is AstroBlaster

@Namzep: Great stuff!  I saw Pole Position I at The Digz, but it was in a cockpit style machine.  Do you know if they ever made Pole Position II like that?


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: namzep on July 19, 2009, 01:40:04 PM
I'm not sure if they did but since PPI and II were easily swappable, I'm sure there are quite a few of the cockpits that have been set up as Pole Position IIs.

Post by: namakubi on July 21, 2009, 05:31:06 AM
Within the past week I bought:

The Counduit, which I'm actually enjoying in an old school shooter kind of way. Reminds me a lot of the Timesplitter games and Perfect Dark in it's story line and atmosphere, something we honestly don't get much of anymore. Not nearly as grim and realistic as shooters have become.

And used retro purchases have been:

Ganbare Goemon 4 (Legend of the Mystical Ninja 4) on the Super Famicom. Haven't really had a chance to dig into this one yet, but I love all the Goemon games, and this one is apparently the best of the Super Famicom ones next to 2, so I'm sure I'll enjoy it.

Bionic Commando on the Gameboy. No, this is not 'Elite Forces' on the Gameboy Color, this is a forgotten pseudo=port of the NES one, and it's AWESOME! It's quickly on it's way to being my favorite version of Bionic Commando, EVER. The controls are super tight, which is amazing for a Gameboy game, and the art style is more of a Shirow Masamune / Robotech kind of look, which is really impressive on that little LCD screen. If any of you guys find a copy in the wild, PICK IT UP.

On the left and down in the middle it says "Super Mario".

On the right it says "1 cartridge, 4 player battle"

(ok, it doesn't say player, but person, but I think the word player is implied  ;))


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: son_ov_hades on July 25, 2009, 02:39:42 PM
Thanks Manuel. :) I wonder what game this shirt if for then, 4 player battle? The only thing I can think of is Mariokart. From the graphic I thought it was Super Mario World though. Either way, cool shirt.

When I played Golf on WSR, as soon as I took my first swing, it felt so much more realistic and easy than on WS.  Putting was amazing as well.  No more awkward, soft, no-backswing, forward puts. :P

This post is barely video game related, but I'm gonna make it anyway.  I went to Omaha yesterday and got The Simpsons- season 11, Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! -seasons 2 & 3, Donnie Darko on DVD, A 2'' Domo action figure (:P), and two bottles of Ramune...which looks different then what I used to get.

And...to make this post video game related, I got Sonic Pocket Adventure, Samurai Showdown 2, Fatal Fury: Contact, and King of Fighters- R2, all for the Neo Geo Pocket Color, which I don't have yet. :D

NGPC games:
(http://i30.tinypic.com/2hnt6xw.jpg)

What's wrong with this Ramune?  The bottle I usually get is in English, and all this other store had was Japanese stuff.  They also had mango flavor, which I hadn't tried yet. :P

Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: Jollie on August 16, 2009, 04:04:48 PM
ok so donnie darko is amazing so thats cool so are fatal fury and King Of Fighters

Well I found this stuff and will be purchasing it this friday at green dragon.(funny story anything i find at the shop i can put on hold for me and the guy wont sell it to anyone. cool right?)

Mario Kart 64 w/black and grey controller box(Import)
Black original gameboy
ANOTHER Sega Genesis HDG model
Afterburner for the SMS
the add on for the sega cd2 that holds the larger genesis
choplifter for the sms
and maybe P.O.W. CIB for the NES (it was from a rental shop and has a bunch of stickers on the cart :(

EDIT: also i forgot to add a Game Boy Printer, Silpheed, and the games that come with a sega CD (Sol Feace, Sega Classics, Etc.)


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nintendodork on August 16, 2009, 04:06:36 PM
If you peel off all the stickers, and clean the sticky residue with alcohol, then the cart will look brand new. :)


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: Jollie on August 16, 2009, 04:09:35 PM
no its one of those stickers that when you peel it off it shows that VOID thing like a blockbuster sticker and they are a pain in the ass to get off without ripping up the label.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: 133MHz on August 16, 2009, 08:19:11 PM
You can still get them out with a lot of patience and some alcohol :P.

BTW I don't like Afterburner for the SMS, but the cart rocks because it's got a really kickass mapper that works with 99% of SMS games up to 512KB in size. You can put almost any game on it :).


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: Jollie on August 16, 2009, 08:47:25 PM
what games would you recommend for the SMS 133?


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: 133MHz on August 16, 2009, 09:04:09 PM
Games I recommend:

  • Sonic the Hedgehog 1 & 2 (awesome games that show the true power of the SMS)
  • Wonder Boy (awesome arcade conversion - better than the Famicom one! *gasp*)
  • Columns or Super Columns (like Magic Jewerly for the FC - pretty fun)
  • The Ninja (hard but fun)
  • Kung Fu Kid (like Kung Fu for the NES but longer, also fun)
  • Alex Kidd in Miracle World (the SMB clone for the SMS!)
  • Astro Warrior (nice shooting game a-la Star Force)
  • Penguin Land (fun puzzle/platformer with stage builder, good brain-teasing)
  • Teddy Boy (small fun platformer with catchy music)
  • Flicky (same as above)

If you have the Light Phaser get Safari Hunt and Shooting Gallery, especially the latter. The Sega light gun is ages ahead from the NES Zapper - pixel accurate, no flashing white rectangles! Shooting Gallery bears an uncanny resemblance to Wii Play's shooting mini-game! Really advanced stuff.

...and of course, Snail Maze! Best Game EVAR.

I'd like to see other members' favorite SMS games :).


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: Jollie on August 16, 2009, 09:19:20 PM
thanks ill keep my eyes open for those games. haha snail maze, as of now thats about all i can play on this thing, and i can only get to level 3!


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nintendodork on August 16, 2009, 09:19:54 PM
For me, it'd be Sonic the Hedgehog.  I like it more than the Genesis version! :o


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: L___E___T on August 16, 2009, 09:47:36 PM
FINALLY someone that also bigs up THE NINJA!   An amazing game, I got it for my bro one Christmas when he got his SMS, amazing times.

I'd also reccommend:

- wonderboy 3 (dragon's trap)
- alien storm (like streets of rage)
- safari hunt (light gun game)
- california games (best version IMO)
- alien 3
- Asterix (this is better than most megadrive games even)
- castle of illusion mickey mouse
- kenseiden
- lucky dime caper donald duck
- ninja gaiden (way different than on nes)
- operation wolf
- phantasy star
- R-type
- shinobi

So, a long list but I think there were nearly as many great games for the SMS as there was on famicom / nes.  It was a success in europe as you know.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: 133MHz on August 16, 2009, 10:37:02 PM
Whoa I didn't know that the SMS had Mickey's Castle of Illusion! I'm totally checking that one out :).

I'm totally digging that Spanish language Keyboard Famiclone cart. Do you have a keyboard Famiclone to test it?


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: FamicomFreak on August 17, 2009, 12:28:59 AM
no I don't :( but it does load up but it goes crazy after that.....I might end up selling it....


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: 133MHz on August 17, 2009, 01:20:55 AM
It goes crazy because it's trying to access a non-existent keyboard and mouse and getting garbage data as a result. Plug it into a Keyboard Famiclone and it'll work perfectly :).


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: Rob64 on August 17, 2009, 01:25:36 AM
what system is the 48 in 1 cart for, N64?


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: 133MHz on August 17, 2009, 01:27:16 AM
Famicom, more specifically Keyboard Famiclones.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: Rob64 on August 17, 2009, 01:31:02 AM
Interesting... especially when you consider how the design of an unlicensed cart looks similar to the design of a licensed cart for a completely different system.

Woohoo!  I finally got my NGPC, and a Sega Game Gear!  The NGPC is in awesome condition, and the Game Gear has some scratches on the screen, and no battery covers, but it said that in the auction, and it was still a nice extra.  On top of that, I got the GG AC adapter, a GG car adapter, and they both came in a plush case.  Which was also nice.  I also got Puzzle Bobble from a different seller, which is now my favorite puzzle game of all time.  Anyway, pictures:

Post by: b1aCkDeA7h on August 28, 2009, 05:38:24 AM
So I woke up today and was perusing one of the Free Criagslists around my region when I came across a fifteen minute old post that said something along the lines of "NES and SNES" in the title. Not too old, cool. Usually by the time I click them and email and stuff, they're gone or I email back and forth and don't end up with free video game stuff.

It didn't have a location listed but I knew the general area would be at least an hour's drive for me. The listing said that the person was cleaning out their house when they came across their NES, SNES, 2 SNES controllers, 7 SNES games, but no adapters or AV cables so they weren't tested. The post said that the stuff would be thrown out by the 1st and the classic game preservationist inside me, coupled with the fact that the post was quite fresh, pushed me to email the poster and in a gamble, I left my phone number.

I got a call about five or ten minutes later and when I found out where the stuff was, I was right, give or take about an hour plus change away. I told the person on the phone that I could be there at noon, but that was a problem so we scheduled a pickup for later in the evening. Since I had basically just woken up, it slipped my mind to ask what games were in the lot and forgot to ask if the person could hold it for me.

Right before I left to pick the stuff up, I noticed the post was gone. I had a nagging feeling that the person may have given the stuff away but I was feeling zealous and decided to not call and leave to pick up the stuff anyway. About twenty minutes from the location, I called to remind the person I was coming. Voice mail...



...crap...



I kept driving though but right as I contemplated turning around, I got a call confirming that the stuff was still there. After getting off the phone, I breathed a collective sigh of relief from all the gambles I took so far.

As I knocked on the door, I wasn't expecting much. Bring on the busted systems and sports games!

The person invited me in and directed me to a near empty milk crate with the stuff sprawled around it. It was clear that the person was prepping to move or something. As I looked at the NES and SNES, they were pretty dirty. Ugh, maybe I shouldn't have been so impulsive.

The person then handed me the stack of games, the ones I notice immediately were a black cartridge and one with a rather plain looking green forest label with yellow title text.

I kept a straight poker face and started to hurriedly put the stuff in a bag because I knew I had already done well. Somewhere along the line, a Game Gear was produced and offered to me so I took that as well. I helped the person root through the various AC Adapters and found mostly phone chargers so nothing that I could actually use. They had indeed misplaced the AV Cables and AC Adapters. I thanked the person and took the stuff to my car.

After I popped open my trunk, I decided to take a closer look at the cartridges. Here's the contents of my epic find:

- A dirty SNES
- A dirty SNES controller
- An InterAct SNES Pad
- A used and dusty NES
- A black Game Gear with a missing battery cover
- Itchy and Scratchy for the Game Gear
- Super Columns for the Game Gear
- Sim City for the SNES (as are the rest of the games I'm listing)
- Killer Instinct
- Super Punch Out
- Super Mario Kart
- Secret of Evermore
- TWO Secret of Mana (the gem I spotted immediately)
- Chrono Trigger

I drove like mad back home and cleaned and tested the SNES games with a buddy of mine. They all work and they have saves at various points in each of the respective games.

Un-freaking believable. Apparently, there's merit to impulsive decision making. Not only did I just get a pile of awesome stuff for free for my collection, I just saved a whole lot from the fate of the dumpster. The systems still need to be cleaned and tested but for obvious reasons, I'm not going to be bummed if they don't work.

What a find and what an adventure.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)

Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: Rob64 on August 28, 2009, 11:02:25 AM
Really nice find, now my turn.

I found a craigslist ad for my area that had someone getting rid of a 1981 Philco Color Television with bunny ears and the manual. We emailed each other before, and told him that I wanted it to play old consoles on a tv like that, and he told me he remembers getting it to work with the atari.

That's an even better sign for me. I know it works, and it can be hooked up. I eventually showed up with my brother to pick it up, and it looked better than what the picture had, it was the tv I was looking for and he was giving it away for free.

Upon closer inspection and a couple of posts here, I found out I need an adaptor to connect my old stuff. It's worth it for this tv.

The tv is the classic wood frame and dials for the channel.

Update: I finished hooking up the tv and it works great.

Well I do have a Sega without TMSS and it works great but if you can't find any info on here than post a thread on Assemblergames about it.

I would hate to sell it to you then find out your game still does not work.

That game is awesome.  It sucks that it doesn't work in a model 2 Genesis, where did you get it from?

Post by: Bramsworth on September 03, 2009, 02:26:24 AM
Friend in Taiwan :)

Good news, it does work. I had to do a cart swapping trick though, which requires starting a game up and then with the power on swapping for the other game and then hitting reset. That bypasses the TMSS check then.

This game is pretty hard :P

I tried two different games for the initial startup game before choosing Jurassic Park and going into the options screen. All other games I tried swapping at the title and the screen went black as soon as I pulled the cart out.

So if anyone else is going to try this you'll know it has a chance of working if the game your swapping stays on screen once you take it out. I think that's how it works anyways :)

Ah well you just gotta keep looking. I went with a friend I met through digital press forum and it was his first time. When we got there the place was empty and he wasn't that positive on finding stuff. I kept telling him to just be patient that most vendors haven't taken their stuff out just yet(it rained a little bit when we got there). Anyways, after waiting around and looking at the vendors that were already opened we started finding deals. I found him a loose copy of chrono trigger for the SNES for 2 dollars and even though I was the one that found it I let him buy it (can't be that greedy lol and it was his first time there). At the end of the day, we ended up with our backpacks full of games and real happy at what we found. He was amazed at how much stuff there was. We even let some deals go like a boxed game gear and some neat SNES games. We are planning another trip soon so I hope to have another good haul. har har har

Today's flea market finds:

(http://img197.imageshack.us/img197/3504/dscn9833n.jpg)

Nothing too earth shattering, but I got all of these for cheap. The 68 in 1 pirate Famicom multicart contains about 7 unique games - including a hilarious hack of Mario Brothers with a giant Doraemon as the main character.

The PS1 didn't power on at first, fortunately only the main fuse was blown. After tweaking the laser slightly and making sure that it worked correctly, I gave it a generous bath on my tub with some laundry detergent and it turned out like this:

I used to have that exact same model of router. It wasn't very good. :X


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: 133MHz on October 05, 2009, 04:35:26 PM
I used to have that exact same model of router. It wasn't very good. :X

It's not a router, it's a network switch. My router is a Linksys WRT54G with DD-WRT and it seriously rocks - but I've run of LAN ports to plug computers into, so I picked this D-Link 5 port switch for a buck instead of paying nearly $20 for a new 7 port one 8).

I agree with you about D-Link routers not being so good, at least the recent ones. I had a refurbished DI-604 which worked like a charm for years until we got laptops and needed wireless, so I bought a new DI-524, that piece of shit was terribly unstable - it crashed a lot and the store wouldn't take it back because they couldn't find anything wrong with it >:(. I tried everything from firmware updates, replacing the AC adapter and even a cooling fan (!), but nothing helped. Tired of the BS I ditched the DI-524, bought a Linksys WRT54G, flashed it with DD-WRT and haven't looked back since 8).

Eventually it was discovered that turning off the wireless radio helped with stability on the DI-524, but that defeats the purpose of a wireless router in the first place! >:(

Also, thanks for the comments about the PS1 cleaning! :D
I've been playing Jumping Flash 2 on it using my friend's controllers & hookups. I really need to buy some controllers and cables of my own ::).

I got the mother of all finds!

A blue dev PS1, a green dev PS1, 2 green debug Gamecubes, a red dev gamecube and a whole load of PS2 external network HDDs..
The HDDs were all still new and even sealed in their shipping boxes direct from SONY!  

Oh yeah, all this was free :D  I literally got sweaty palms the moment I saw them!  I have no room for them so I'll be selling them on as collectors quite like dekvits.

it is all still at work - I recently moved house and overloaded my poor new housemate with a ton of stuff.  I forgot to mention other goodies too - there was a big pile but mostly old controllers and source code and crap.  A scary sight.  Pics to come then :P  I might go and grab some more but I had to prioritise.  There were boxes full of just gamecube controllers, then one of steering wheels, then one of ps1 controllers then one of ps2 controllers and it just went on and on.  I think I grabbed the beautiful stuff.  I've wanted a red dev code GCN for ages now.

worst thing?  It was LITERALLY destined for the bin.  Sacrilege if you ask me.  A corridor of gems going off to be slaughtered by removal guys or something!  I had to save them.

In Germany, taking stuff out of of the bin is considered theft.  :D

Same here unless you get permission, which I did at least.  I'm open to offers on that stuff though as like I said I just don't have room for it.  It'll all be going in about a month's time along with some other bits like a brand new PAL NES I don't have room for.

I'm having a clear out sale soon so I'll make a thread when I can gather the mounds of stuff together.

Destroying them is a shame from a fan's viewpoint. But on the other hand it's understandable that the companies don't want their stuff in the hands of others.

It's great.

The only thing I wish it came with was an AC adapter.  Since this is a KORG Japan product, I assume I'll need a special AC adapter. :-\  Otherwise, it only takes 4 AAs, so that's not a big concern anyway.  Some people say the lack of USB bothers them, but all you have to do is plug a 3.5mm jack into your computer and your Kaossilator.

Got Conker's Bad Fur Day yesterday on eBay, and then today I went to Omaha to try that dog grooming service at Petsmart with my basset hound.  While she was getting groomed, I went to Gamers, and picked up Harvest Moon 64, CIB Perfect Dark (in almost mint condition), and Micro Machines on the NES all for $25! :D

My dog was also very shiny.

Bought a broken Sega Genesis Model 1 for dirt cheap, seller said that it powered up but the video was all screwed up.
I already own both Sega Genesis models so I just got this one for the challenge of fixing it, and to have a spare system for parts etc.

When I hooked it up to the TV through the RF modulator sure enough the video was really fuzzy and lacking sync, but it resembled something that I've seen a lot on my younger days: the channel selector switch set in the wrong channel, so I checked out the position of the output channel selector and it was in Ch. 4 instead of 3. Flipping it back to the correct channel displayed a beautiful picture and confirmed that the system was indeed working fine.

So much for buying a supposedly junk system and finding out that it was set on the wrong channel! ::)
That wasn't the challenge that I was hoping to get :'(... but hey, never hurts to have a cheap spare! :P

You're into Yugioh?  I've got some cards I've been trying to sell for ages.  No one around here likes it anymore.  PM me if you're looking for anything.  I might have it.

My finds for this week include:
Mad World (Wii)
The Conduit (Wii)
A Gameshark (N64)  Why is that LED number display on the front of the thing?  All it does is count down from 5 each time you start it up. ???

oh.. Mine is pretty much fucked. It really only works with Wave Race, which is okay, because it's one of my favorite games.
I have never seen it light up :p

:D That's strange.  I know the N64 GS had a lot of versions.  So maybe yours (for whatever reason) is the kind that doesn't light up...but I think they all light up, so it must just be broken. :P  That's strange that it only works with one game.  Over the years, I've come to notice that Gamesharks will just all of a sudden stop working.  Like the one I have for my GBA will work for almost all the games on it, except for Ruby and Sapphire, which is the only thing I used it for. >:(  Maybe I was on a free trial. ::) :P

A friend of mine wanted to get an iPod FM transmitter so after class we went to a very popular place to get cheap electronic products. There was a bargain basket outside of a store that caught our attention. Upon closer inspection we found unsold, brand new & sealed stuff from ~15 years ago! There were CIB sealed PS1 controllers, SNES games, NES clone controllers, Famiclone controllers and a bunch of other goodies which are almost impossible to find in brand new condition these days, and at bargain prices! Of course we couldn't resist and bought a bunch of stuff and will probably return to get some more.

These were the most worthy finds for me:

Brand New NASA NES Clone Controllers! They even smell like new!
(http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2501/4100700877_1e398d88d2.jpg) (http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2501/4100700877_1e398d88d2_b.jpg)
These are the controllers that originally came bundled with my "Mini NES" clone which I found system only. Each box set comes with two controllers (one to complete my mini NES clone and one to spare). I might get more of these since they're a good source of rubber domes to fix original NES and Famicom controllers.

Brand New and Sealed 15 pin Famicom Clone Controller!
(http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2674/4100701257_f85f9d5e0b.jpg) (http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2674/4100701257_f85f9d5e0b_b.jpg)
I hate these crappy controllers but when I noticed that they're 15 pin I immediately got one because these are pretty hard to find, unlike their 9 pin cousins. Some Famicom clones use this connector, like my GLK Keyboard Famiclone. Now I can finally try out some games on it!

Post by: cubelmariomadness on November 13, 2009, 06:36:41 PM

Those NASA controllers are pretty cool. My favorite controller is the NES controller, and those add turbo, which I love.

Ah 133mhz so that's the box of those controllers. I have a set myself that were from a nes clone I had years ago but broke thanks to my brother. Kewl stuff indeed. Here are some of my finds in the past two-three weeks that I liked the most.

Got this Atari 2600 clone with 256 built in games for pretty cheap today:

(http://img72.imageshack.us/img72/3798/dscn0497.jpg)

(http://img26.imageshack.us/img26/5161/dscn0498q.jpg)

It doesn't have a menu screen or dip switches. The built in games change at a rate of one per second (kind of like changing channels on a TV) and when you find a game you want to play, you flick the Game Select switch into the off position and the cycling stops. Toggle the switch again and the "playlist" will continue advancing.

I haven't checked if it really comes with 256 games, but it does have an awful lot of them, and there are quite a few classics in there. :D

Most Atari 2600 games don't even have a title screen... I presume that a menu screen is way beyond the 2600's capabilities ::) :P

Post by: cubelmariomadness on November 22, 2009, 04:14:46 PM
What I mean, is when you flick that switch up, and the channels start going, instead, you should be able to push the joystick right or left, to select a game. Then flick the switch down, to play.

Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nintendodork on December 18, 2009, 01:57:21 PM
Well, I originally planned to just use my Gameshark since the difference is only physical, but for whatever reason, my GS won't even turn on when I put Pocket Monsters Stadium on top.  So I guess I'll have to make good use out of gamebits and drill out those tabs.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)

Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: thegreatgonzo on December 18, 2009, 02:39:33 PM
Hopefully the next one is Sin & Punishment.

Sin and Punishment was my first ever import game. The controls were hard to get used to, but Treasure outdid themselves again with an awesome game! If I ever hook my Wii to the internet I would download their English version just so I can understand the plot better.
Are the controls any easier from the original N64 version?


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nintendodork on December 18, 2009, 02:59:00 PM
Are you using a Gameshrk Pro 3.3?
I have no idea.  Is the version on the title screen?  If so, I'll look at that when I get home today.

just so I can understand the plot better.
The voiceovers are all in English.   The only thing Japanese are the menus and the subtitles throughout the game as far as I know.  The English translated version Nintendo released on the VC I think is pretty much the menus and subtitles.  Not sure though.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nensondubois on December 18, 2009, 03:29:41 PM
You can tell you have a GS Pro by the follwing:
Does your Gameshark have a Parallel port on the back?
Does it have a built in trainer and memory editor?


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nintendodork on December 18, 2009, 07:42:05 PM
No, no, and no.

I turned it on, and it says version 2.21.

(http://www.nintendocc.com/game_shark/button.jpg) 
Edit: Mine looks exactly like this, and it doesn't say Pro anywhere onscreen or on the actual cartridge.  I tried looking for a purpose of that button on the front, but from the website I got that picture from, the description doesn't make much sense.

The GS button is used for certain codes when RAM is injected to the cheat at one time.

Post by: Jedi QuestMaster on December 18, 2009, 11:32:55 PM
All that button really does is making some codes take effect when you want to turn them on in the middle of a game; otherwise I see no purpose.

On the GS Pro, however, it is used to access the menus (Cheat Search, Hex Editor, etc.) (http://www.famicomworld.com/forum/Themes/famicomworld/images/post/thumbup.gif).

Sega Mega Drive:

Snake Rattle N Roll - NTSC-J
Batletoads - PAL
I didn't know Snake Rattle 'n' Roll came was released in Japan! Are you sure it isn't PAL?

Well alright then both my games are PAL, hmmm I wasn't aware.
I was just going on what the seller said.

Also both the MD Snake Rattle N Roll and the MD Battletoads are much smoother graphics then the NES counterparts.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: NintendoKing on January 03, 2010, 03:49:01 AM
I was actually a bit disappointed with the MegaDrive version of Snake Rattle Roll:

-the graphics could've been vastly improved, instead of just making it smoother
-different music; made the game feel less epic on the grey stage :( (except I liked the music in the water level)
-the final stage was insane! :o

It was also a bit harder to control (probably because of the Genesis controller)

I have both versions of both games, I do really enjoy the NES SRnR; I cannot compare the gameplay as I have not received either games yet.

But I have watched gameplay videos on youtube, so I do know the graphics are nicely upgraded to match the age differences.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nensondubois on January 05, 2010, 12:11:53 AM
I like the music for the NES version better but the Main theme is still cool on the Megadrive/Genesis.

There's a subliminal message on the second stage in the NES version.

@Jedi - If you talking to me, yes its NTSC.
Actually, I don't think I want to trade it; it has a unusual artwork and case besides. I like pirated stuffs, I just wish they would have mentioned it to be a pirate in the eBay auction. 

Its neat to have a boxed pirate, this makes my first one ever.

I got Muramasa: The Demon Blade yesterday.  This game is really fun so far.  I'm doing it easy the first time (Musa style/Momohime), after I beat this, I'll probably do Musa/Kisuke, then the other style for both characters.

You're too lucky in the games department,  You'd probably trade it for my N64DD though ;D


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: NintendoKing on January 18, 2010, 02:27:00 PM
It's complete? :o

Mine is too, but I don't have a PAL console so everything goes fast.

I see. But yup, complete does rock.
I am happy with it.

How does the cover look like?


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: NintendoKing on January 18, 2010, 03:10:28 PM
How does the cover look like?

It is blue on front, with white font over yellow font "Snake Rattle N Roll" With a multicolored snake and a firework color detail.
On the back, is 6 in game screen-shots on a green background with the same text from the front.
On the Spine, is the Snake Rattle N Roll text with a bar-code below it.

The case is surprisingly very nice for a pirated copy.

Got my billy mays cartridge today.

According to the seller, this very cartridge contains the soul of Billy Mays. When Billy died, the evil wizard Vince cast his soul to be trapped inside this Madden 99 game for all of eternity, and now I own him.

Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nintendodork on February 01, 2010, 07:49:23 PM
Probably because it was made for a clone system and not for the Game Boy.  Did you try just taking the board out of the case and playing just the board?


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: Cam3ron@FW on February 02, 2010, 04:04:56 AM
Super Off road is best on the genesis, I made a whole review comparing the SNES, NES & Genesis versions.  Awesome games, Badlands is the same sort of thing...

Getting my Saturn tomorrow, can't wait ;D I'll keep you posted on all the stuff I get...

Don't know, I'm going to, two stores.  One has a better deal, but only one Saturn.  I doubt it's a Japan Saturn, but if it is, then I'll need an Action Replay.

Post by: Cam3ron@FW on February 02, 2010, 08:04:16 PM
Well, it went pretty bad... To start off, my mom got lost and didn't have a map, after half an hour.  I decided to buy a stupid map, we found the right street, so I go to the first store as panned, but the second one was closed...

Sure enough, I have my Saturn sitting beside me on the computer desk... Only one game; The need For speed.  Pathetic, the second store was the store with all the games... dang it, I'll try to burn some games for the Saturn for now.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: Nightstar699 on February 02, 2010, 08:45:07 PM
Damn sorry dude. Atleast you got the Saturn! And lots of good games for it are cheap! (virtua fighter 1 and 2, virtua cop, etc)

I myself just picked up Sunsoft's Batman for Game Boy... Cant wait to play it!


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: Cam3ron@FW on February 02, 2010, 10:21:56 PM
No, I can't burn games either.  Looked in the console when I opened it, but I can't find the swith to tape down to keep the disc cover open.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: Jollie on February 02, 2010, 10:50:47 PM
saturn games run relatively cheap. unless its panzer dragoon saga or something insane like that. imports are pretty good prices. some imports are also cheaper than their american counterparts.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: Nightstar699 on February 02, 2010, 10:55:46 PM
Its true,like House of the Dead. Cam3ron, if you could get it to play imports, I could sell/trade you some good games.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: Jollie on February 02, 2010, 11:08:37 PM
AND  Azal Panzer Dragoon which is arond $40 instead of $250.


all you need is an action replay 4M<-->1M i got mine for 20 bucks from the convention i went to in october. it works on all games. King of Fighters '95 is the only problem, you will need to do a cartridge swap for that one to work because it uses a ROM cart not a RAM cart. only game that did that.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: Cam3ron@FW on February 03, 2010, 12:25:47 AM
anyone know how to easy mod the Saturn...? I've seen vides on how to mod them, but the circuit area that has the switch that you need to tape is sticking to the lid of my saturn,  I can't find anywhere where that little metal thing you are supposed to tape together is... From seeing videos, it is supposed to stay at the bottom half of the saturn.  Instead, it is at the top half of the Saturn.

I have no clue what model mine is, it looks unique compared to the model 1 & 2.  It has oval shaped buttons at the top of the console, and like I said, part of the circuit is at the top half of the saturn.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: Jollie on February 03, 2010, 12:37:00 AM
just get an action replay. what are you trying to mod it to do?


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: Cam3ron@FW on February 03, 2010, 12:50:54 AM
play burnt games, the one stupid shop wasn't open, so all I could get at the other store is the console and controllers.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: Jollie on February 03, 2010, 01:36:56 AM
do you have oval buttons and a drive light? are you trying the swap because i dont reccomend it.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: Cam3ron@FW on February 03, 2010, 01:59:20 AM
Yeah swapping... Why not :???:


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)

Recently got a SNES Counter Tester, NES Joystick Test Cart (For Sale in Buy/Sell forum), 24 boxed complete NES games.

Man, people know what stuff is worth these days so I ended up paying about $10 a boxed complete game for the NES games but hey
that's still fair I think.

Post by: nintendodork on February 24, 2010, 01:25:12 AM
Is it any good?  If I saw it for $40, I would probably get it, but I've just heard so many negative things about it.

I got Forza Motorsport 3 today.  Secret Walmart codes FTW!

I can't get the f*cking skateboard to calibrate, so I have no idea if it's any good or not. I'm probably going to take it back for a refund. It was an impulse buy and short of buying a new one and just swapping out the board & then returning it with the "bad" board in it, I don't really know where to go from here with it. I'd like to smash Tony Hawk in the face with it, especially after hearing him repeat over & over during the calibration process that, "It's probably the easiest thing you'll do all day." Yeah, go f*ck yourself, Tony...

Zoids Densetsu! Came in the mail today, the manual is from my original copy.


I couldnt find my original box anywhere... I think maybe I also gave the box with the game when I loaned it out to the fellow whom never gave it back!! >:(

I am glad I kept the manual though.

I have some zoids game on GC, it sucks.

I know what you speak of, its the sequel... the awful sequel.
It basically deleted all the good from the original... Zoids:  Jashin Fukkatsu!

In order of Zoids Gameboy series:

Zoids: Densetsu - GB  (Amazing, the best)
Zoids: Jashin Fukkatsu - GBC (Utter crap)
Zoids: Saga - GBA (Decent, I like how it resembles Zoids Mokushiroku on Famicom)
Zoids: Saga 2 - GBA (Never played it
Zoids: Saga 3: Fuzors - GBA (Never played it)
Zoids: Cyber Drive - GBA (Never played it)
Zoids: Legacy - GBA (Never played it)

Buy my favorite game, Zoids: Densetsu!

Only one problem, this seller stole the image from the one I bought, I know because its the exact same picture and mine has that scratch thats pictured. Lol.

Just curious, my old saturn had regular AV cables, but the new one I bought came with S-video cords.  Which way was normal?  It's the first console I've boughten that has S-video cables.

For Saturns though?  Mine has a Composite outlet on it, but it came with the S-video.  Take note that this one is a model 1 with the oval buttons, and my old saturn was a model 2.  Both were used though.

There is bad news though, rode my bike to Future shop and witnessed a car accident right beside me when I was riding on a bike trail beside a busy road.  No ones hurt thankfully but the guy that caused it was a complete idiot.

Just picked up Battlefield: Bad Company 2 at Walmart.  Last night I ordered a new case, some LEDs and a new controller shell for my Xbox.  What I want to do is put on the new case, which is clear, and has LEDs in it that change color depending on the temperature of the Xbox, and also digitally displays the temperature.  I'm also going to modify my controller for rapid fire, put it in a translucent shell, and put LEDs in all the buttons.  Finally, I'm going to replace the ring of light (the green LEDs around the power button) with a red one, to resemble the RROD. :P  Once it's all done, I'll be sure to post the final product.

FamicomFreak, great finding!

Marvel vs Capcom for Dreamcast, this was one awesome game, and still it is.

I don't have the original so in a few time just until I get it legit, I'm gonna download it and burn.

Picked up Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2 on Friday.  Kind of disappointed with it.  It's really easy so far.  Maybe later in the game it'll get more exciting (and I should probably turn the difficulty up from easy :P).

You paid 980 yens for that Final Fantasy game? If so that was very cheap.

Not a Final Fantasy fan, but if I was (I never liked FF too much) I'd be "wow you were very lucky to get at that price" or somewhat.

Went to the flea market today and came back with a great haul for all of twenty bucks. Let's dive right in.

Here's a Game Boy I got with a bit of a dirty screen, but I'm pretty sure it'll work when I start it. Haven't put new batteries in yet. Two minor scratches on the edge of the screen, but overall I'm pretty happy with it.
(http://img706.imageshack.us/img706/9141/findsgameboy1.jpg)

Also this came with it. Anyone played it? Irem makes some good games, but I've never heard of this one.
(http://img100.imageshack.us/img100/2051/findskungfumaster.jpg)

This was my first kind of unusual find of the day, a Power Joy III! I've heard this is a piece of crap, but I had to get it anyway. It looks like it might not even work, I hooked it up when I got home (with the power adapter for my Famicom, the adapter that came with the Power Joy has a bunch of loose crap in it that makes noise when I shake it so I'm not sure it's safe to use) and nothing happened. This may be due to something else, though...
(http://img72.imageshack.us/img72/1948/findssuperjoy31.jpg)

The Power Joy's back cover is missing (as are the second controller and gun, but I don't care about those), and it seems like there might be batteries needed. But I can't imagine why a machine that's already hooked up to an outlet would need batteries. Can anyone explain this? Do I need to jury-rig a new cover so this thing can work? Is it even worth the trouble? At least the pins seem like they're in good shape, albeit dusty.
(http://img512.imageshack.us/img512/4223/findssuperjoy32.jpg)

I've saved the best for last. This will blow your mind. Actually it probably won't, but it surprised the hell out of me.
(http://img8.imageshack.us/img8/6071/findsbowlingandalienrai.jpg)

That's right! Two CIB Microvision games! And when I say CIB, I mean it! These things are about as near mint as you can get for obscure thirty year old electronics. For those that don't know, the Microvision was the first ever portable console to use swappable cartridges, and the last until the Nintendo Game Boy. I am a huge nerd for this thing although I've never owned one. You know what, that picture seemed a little lame, it didn't quite incorporate the joy I felt at finding these games. Let me show you what they looked like to me when I first saw them at the flea market:
(http://img192.imageshack.us/img192/5784/findsbowlarlensflare.jpg)
LENS FLARES, SUCKERS!!

Side view!
(http://img69.imageshack.us/img69/5851/findsbowlar2.jpg)

Here are the cartridges themselves. Huge suckers, aren't they? They actually went over the entire front of the Microvision, covering the screen and the keypad so that different games would have different screen and button layouts (despite the screen only having a 16 x 16 resolution). Another interesting thing about the Microvision is that the processor was not in the console itself. Instead, each cartridge had its own separate CPU. I'm not sure if this is unique to the Microvision or not. I had to look closely at these before I could tell that they'd been played at all, they look so pristine. Bowling, though, has marks on its buttons from someone's fingernails.
(http://img175.imageshack.us/img175/9609/findsbowlar3.jpg)

Here's the back of Bowling. Note the top, where the connector is. Also apparently the CPU is under that plastic bit under the sticker, but I've been told never to open that because the engineering is so shoddy that static electricity from my hand can destroy the thing. Horrifying. Finding working Microvision stuff is a challenge because they were built pretty poorly. In addition to that flaw, there were battery problems, terrible screens that died at a moment's notice, and buttons that could be destroyed by not trimming your fingernails often enough.
(http://img294.imageshack.us/img294/174/findsbowlar5.jpg)

Okay, this is the last Microvision shot. Check out the static shield instructions! Another design flaw? Mine, unfortunately, is no longer sticky. Haven't checked the other box yet.
(http://img695.imageshack.us/img695/4962/findsbowlar4.jpg)

In addition to that stuff, I picked up Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt and Metal Storm (a personal favorite) for the NES, an Ink Spots/Ella Fitzerald 78, and a cool View-Master.

But that's not all, a few days ago I checked Craigslist and saw that some local guy had some Atari stuff for cheap. I stopped over on the way back from the doctor and picked it up. It's all dirty as hell and smells like cigarettes, but check out that Supercharger (top middle)!
(http://img243.imageshack.us/img243/6416/findsatarifromcraigslis.jpg)

The day before that I got some Atari games from a thrift store, but most of them I got again from the Craigslist guy for way cheaper, so I feel pretty dumb about that. Dunno what I'll do with 'em now.
(http://img404.imageshack.us/img404/8964/findsatarigoodwill.jpg)

That's it! Sorry for so many images!

I want a Microvision so bad!  Sucks that you can hardly find one now that doesn't have a horrible screen or costs tons of money.

Oh, those games got me excited and I forgot to tell you that the Power Joy isn't worth the trouble.  It'd be easier and more effective to just get a converter if you're just looking to play Famicom games.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: ericj on May 09, 2010, 10:15:10 PM
Really cool stuff you found.

The Power Joy can operate with either batteries or with the ac adapter. If you use the ac adapter, please remember to unplug it once you're done using it. The adapter is known to malfunction and could cause a fire.

Thanks guys. I've got a Sharp Twin already, I mostly just picked up the Power Joy for the novelty value.

Yes, watch out for the Super Joy's power supply. I once plugged mine in and it vibrated violently with a loud hum. I threw it out promptly.

Post by: tankexmortis on May 09, 2010, 10:27:32 PM
All right, I'll toss that power supply. Haven't used it anyway. Actually, I just realized that the reason I can't get it to work might be because I forgot how to operate the old television I've been using... Oops. I'll try the thing again, then I'll see if it has Shrek Bros. I assume that's a hack?

Post by: tankexmortis on May 12, 2010, 02:33:43 AM
Still can't get the Power Joy to work. Would it have given any feedback if I plugged it into a power supply with the wrong polarity? The power supply I used can switch polarity and I forgot that it was set to the Sharp Twin's polarity when I used it on the Power Joy, so I may have damaged it. However there wasn't any reaction when I plugged it in or powered it on, so I think it may have broken before that. Come to think of it, that may indicate a problem with the power system itself.

I took it apart to look for damage and didn't find anything obvious to my novice eyes, although one wire looked to be pretty flat in one spot, I'll check that out later. Also it had the worst soldering I've seen in my life, but I'm sure that's common with these clones. I found a piece of paper loosely glued to the back of one of the boards, maybe to keep them from shorting when powered on? Although they don't seem to be close enough to touch when screwed in. And does anyone know what the switch on the brown board does? I'm curious.

I also tried the Game Boy, and it works! It does have the common vertical dead line, but I checked that out online and it seems like an easy fix, just need a tri-wing screwdriver. Can anyone recommend the best way to clean a Game Boy screen? Mine's dirty as hell.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: MS-DOS4 on May 12, 2010, 03:17:26 AM
Reach down into where the batteries of the PowerJoy III go and look for a switch. Should be in there. Flip it and then try to boot the system!


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: tankexmortis on May 12, 2010, 03:30:43 AM
Thanks. I believe I tried the switch already with no luck, but I'll put it back together tomorrow, try again, and let you know how it goes. So does that switch have something to do with the power input, or what? I'm a total newbie to this stuff.

UPDATE: All right, I tried the switch in both positions with no luck. Just to verify, the Power Joy takes (+)--c--(-), right? Would 800 mA be too much for it, or should I try to find something with less? I haven't actually tried it with the 350 mA power supply that came with it as it looks totally unreliable and borderline dangerous. If none of that stuff's the problem, I suspect either the DC in or the power switch to be faulty. I'm sure I can find a switch to replace the one on the board, so that may be the next step. I dunno why I'm even bothering, I guess I just need something to do. I also took some pictures of the guts and can post those if anyone thinks that'll help.

APPENDUM: Just got an Atari 7800. Guy I bought it from said it was working a week ago when he tested it, but when I tried it the power flickered on for just a second, then turned off. I'm gonna look for a replacement button and see if that fixes it. I'll probably call the guy tomorrow to let him know, dunno if I'll ask for some of my money back or what. It was cheap and I won't mind doing this if it works, but it would've been nice if it had just worked like it's supposed to.

ADDITION: Got the Atari working, sort of. I'm not convinced the power button isn't faulty, but the main problem seemed to be with the power supply. Fiddling with it a bit got it working, but the picture and sound produce some noise while playing.

Post by: 133MHz on May 16, 2010, 06:17:10 PM
After a long time of not going flea market hunting, I went to a big one with a friend yesterday and here's what I found:

Old Compaq laptop, really dirty but in good condition sans charger. Looks like it could be a 486 or early Pentium with a color display. I love me sum old computer stuff and it was so cheap I couldn't let it pass up, even when I noticed that the power connector got loose and it was rattling inside the computer.
(http://133fsb.files.wordpress.com/2010/05/laptop_dirty.jpg)

The battery was of course completely dead, so the only way I could check if the lappy was working at all is by repairing the power jack and plugging some laptop charger into it. I opened it up to find that the power connector was completely broken and mangled beyond repair. Not having a suitable replacement and since I only wanted to know if it did anything at all before spending money on replacement parts, I soldered two wires directly to the motherboard which I routed through the charger plug hole, so that I could apply some direct power into it.
(http://133fsb.files.wordpress.com/2010/05/laptop2_dirty.jpg)

Yes that is speaker wire coming out of the computer's power jack. ::)
I used an old IBM charger to apply some power to the bare wires and lo and behold, it worked! ;D
It's a 75 MHz Pentium with 40 MB of RAM, 2 GB hard disk, 640x480 color display, 16 bit sound and Windows 95 OSR1.
The built in trackpoint isn't working and the CPU fan sounds like a coffee grinder, but everything else works fine. Old Compaq lappy will get a full cleaning and restoration job sometime in the future. ;)

Here's a really weird one for us in the New World. An European SCART lead! :o
(http://133fsb.files.wordpress.com/2010/05/scartlead.jpg)

Of course the seller didn't have the slightest clue about what that thing was so I got it for next to nothing. This is the first time I've ever seen a SCART plug in person, they're virtually non-existant around here so I consider myself quite lucky on finding this one.

Another mini NES clone. Satoshi had me looking around for one so I picked it up for him.
(http://133fsb.files.wordpress.com/2010/05/creation_dirty.jpg)

Aside from being extremely dirty, it's missing a plastic piece and the power input jack was loose. After resoldering the power jack I fired it up to see if it worked and if it had some built in games. It turned out to have the elusive "double menu" multi game, the one that displays a 20 in 1 menu on power up and a 22 in 1 menu with different games after a reset. It's got some sound problems (sounds really tinny and distorted). Oh and it's a discrete clone with a socketed UMC chipset, and it seems like the built in games are soldered-on Mask ROMs instead of a removable internal Famicom board.

I'll finish to clean and fix this one up when I get some free time. This week will be chocked full of exams for me. :-\

Also I found a Famicom pirate which I posted on the specific Famicom/FDS findings thread, and a replacement TV remote that I needed which is too boring to take a picture of.

Went and spent some of my birthday money on Amazon.  Just pre-ordered the limited edition of DeathSmiles (a horizontal maniac shmup by Cave, same people who made Mushihimesama) for the Xbox 360.  The pre-order comes with the soundtrack and a faceplate.  The soundtrack will probably be pretty cool, but I doubt I'll ever use the faceplate.  I also bought a Hori Real Arcade Pro EX-SE arcade stick, which I've read nothing but positive reviews about, and I like the color scheme too.  I was trying to stay away from the EX2 because of that, and because it's the most common stick around.  I wanted something different! :D

Got a tri-wing screwdriver for my Game Boy (the heat gun trick seems to be working and I oughtta have it pixel perfect soon), a bit to take apart NES games (I think it works for N64 games too, what about SNES games?), and THIS:

3 Ghz quad-core processor, 8 GB RAM (12 or 16 max, can't remember), 1 GB video card, 500 GB HDD (hoping to get a solid state drive when they get bigger/cheaper). Oh my goodness I love this thing. Can't wait to get some new games to really push it.

A state program that helps the disabled pay for electronics and other support devices helped me pay for it. Wonderful people.

My old one was 5 years old. It was running pretty well but its fan died and it was just time to replace it. I'll miss it though, it was one of the last Thinkpads that IBM made.

Update on the Power Joy: it's definitely dead. Went over it with a volt meter and everything is working fine; the wires, the switch, the power connector, everything. In a last ditch effort I tried the terrifying power supply that came with it. It had actually been rattling really loudly when shaken, so I opened it up expecting to find something blown apart. To my relief, it appeared that a bunch of glue had overheated, become brittle, and fallen apart, and that was what was causing the rattling. I also noticed that whoever assembled the (remarkably primitive) power supply neglected to cut the ends of the wires soldered to the diode bridge. I removed those and gave it a shot, but the Power Joy still wouldn't power on, so I'm giving up and I'll just use it for parts, unless I decide to try and rig up something to see if it'll run off battery power. It's missing the battery cover, so I don't have the positive, uh, thingies (I forget the actual term), and I don't know what kind of batteries it takes.

Wow, what started as a shitty day turned out pretty awesome. Today I picked up a complete in box Breath of Fire for SNES, it includes both posters and everything. It's pretty cool, and I got it for only 10 dollars. Oh yeah, and I also got Wrath of the Black Manta for NES. ::)

Got Resident Evil Zero (Disc 1) for NGC today.

(http://i50.tinypic.com/29o1p37.jpg)

Played it for a while and liked it, I got this from a person because if it was bought by me it had to be in complete condition (DVD Case + Manual + 2 discs).

I know I'm missing the 2nd disc but it's okay.

It is a great multi though, has 101 unique games.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: ericj on May 24, 2010, 12:14:20 AM
Well, if it has 101 unique games on it, then it would be worth the price you're asking. There must be different versions of it, since the one I saw definitely had very little in the way of unique games on it.

Nice finds, nonetheless.

This might just be the one I used, but my experience with the one for my Game Boy was that it made things the graphics kind of globby and unattractive. Plus it's one more thing to lug around.

Holy crap FF! I was just at the flea market and found some pretty good deals (and one that was fantastic but out of my price range), but nothing like that!

I picked up an SNES Game Genie (with a sticker that says "super game" on it! Awesome!), a copy of Metroid, Flashback with box and Sonic Spinball CIB for Genesis, a Game Boy color without the battery cover, and I went back to the guy who sold me the broken Power Joy and he graciously gave me another one for free.
Also picked up an odd N64 controller. It looks exactly like a Superpad, but it has no brand name or text anywhere and no slow or turbo buttons. The buttons and joystick seem pretty solid, but I heard that the best Superpads have metal joysticks or something; this one seems to be plastic. Don't have an N64 to test it with anyway. Oh, and I bought a fossilized dinosaur poop for a friend's graduation gift.

Does anyone know if a Genesis Model 1 power supply will work with a Power Joy? This one didn't come with a power supply and I think I threw the old one out because it was so messed up.

EDIT: Nevermind, I found the old power supply and got it working. Damn, it sure heats up in a hurry (both the power supply and the system). I think I'll play it with batteries when I can.

Do all the Power Joys have the same games?

Power joys vary with different games sire.

I picked up DeadRising and The Orange Box both on the 360 for $20 a piece yesterday.  I really like both of them.  I recommend them to anyone who has a 360.  DeadRising is cool because you have to accept that you won't, no matter how good at the game you are, will not be able to everything the game has to offer in the 72 hour time period you have in the mall.  You also only have one save slot so you can't mess up unless you want to start from your really weird save point again, and you also have to choose which survivors to kill and which ones to save, because some are nice, but most are evil.  My favorite games on the Orange Box are Portal and HL2.  I haven't played any of the episodes yet because I'm waiting until I complete HL2.

Really dirty MKII pirate for a couple of bucks. I'm mainly interested in the SFC type cart shell.

Notice the lockout chip clone disguised as a 74C811 (a non existent member of the 74 TTL series chips, basically they pulled that number out of their ass).

EDIT 2: Just tried it out. It's got red blood so I presume this is the (U) version of the game.

I got five packages today! Always a nice surprise! Okay, so I'd been tracking four of them online so it wasn't exactly a surprise, but still. The first package was a Radio Shack AC adapter that I got for a lot cheaper than dumb ol' Radio Shack sells it. Need to buy the plug to fit my Twin Fami, but it's good to have it. As for the rest, well:

(http://img704.imageshack.us/img704/4092/20100604lootmicrovsn.jpg)

Yes, that is a Microvision on the right. Yes, it works. Yes, I am freaking ecstatic about it (especially for the price I got it at). I probably should have taken a picture before I made it all ugly with the static shield, but I was too eager to play a game. To no great surprise, the games kind of suck, but this is a piece of gaming history and I am overjoyed to own it. Now I just need to come up with a way to protect it from the destroying rays of the sun and humidity. Maybe a big insulated lunchbox...

Also, take a look at this thing I stumbled across while messing with my Super Joy:

(http://img683.imageshack.us/img683/5558/20100530loderunnerbmhac.jpg)

Is that Bomberman in Lode Runner? Are there going to be a lot of weird things like that? This is my first multicart so I don't really know what to expect. I did find out last night while trying to play Contra with a friend that an Atari 7800 controller hooked to the system has the ability to cause major graphics glitches in certain games when you press the left button (I don't have the second controller that came with the Super Joy). Try it out if you've got the controller and a Super Joy. The first-party Genesis controllers do nothing except shoot in Contra, but you shoot by pressing down on the d-pad. I want to get my hands on the other controllers that use that connector now so I can see what else I can make this stuff do.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: Jedi QuestMaster on June 04, 2010, 08:31:38 PM
Lode Runner is Bomberman

I haven't played Lode Runner yet, though - but it's coming up on my list.

Not my picture but I figured I'd buy this 90's classic back since I lost my old CD.  The guides and the expansion pack don't hurt either :D  Now if I could only find Red alert and AoE II somewhere...

A few days ago I saw a Sega Pico system at a thrift store for $12. I didn't pick it up because I'm not into collecting rare Sega stuff, and I couldn't justify spending $12 on it when I've got more interesting stuff in mind. Today I went to the same place and there it was, but this time it had a sticker that said "Not working, $5". I'm always in for an electronics challenge, especially if it's cheap or free, so this time I picked it up. Repairing all kinds of electronics crap is one of my favorite pastimes, sometimes I enjoy it more than actually using the damn things. ::)

(http://img28.imageshack.us/img28/2579/segapico.jpg)

The lady at the checkout asked me "Did you notice that it's not working?" to which I replied "Yes, I do." :P
Before busting it open I decided to plug it in and see whether it gave any signs of life. And to my disappointment, it worked perfectly! It came with a 101 Dalmatians math game on it and I can't seem to find any flaws.

Guess I'm the only one who complains about buying broken stuff which isn't actually broken! ::)

Just got the "adaptaplug" for my AC adapter and tried out the Twin Famicom with the aid of an NES to Famicom adapter (bought from michaelthegreat) and the copy of Star Wars above. It works perfectly. I'm overjoyed to say the least, I've been trying to get something to play my NES stuff for months. First I ordered an NES-2 which never came, then I got the Twin Fami but it had no cords or converter, then I got a Yobo that wouldn't work because I'm an idiot, then I had further idiocy-derived problems with the Twin Famicom. Now, finally, I can play these things on a real licensed Nintendo product. This is a wonderful day indeed.

You should return it. :P

That's weird, though - did it come with all the connectors?  If so, did you use the connectors it came with?

Are Picos rare or something?  We've got one sitting in our basement from when my sister was a kid.

Yesterday, I got this in the mail!

I think I've seen a Pico or two at thrift stores before. I don't think they're all that rare, but I could be wrong.

Wah.  I really have to get around to attempting to fix the Vectrex my friend gave me.  The CRT scares me, though.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: nintendodork on June 05, 2010, 03:32:23 PM
Do you know what's wrong with it?  If the problem isn't extremely complicated, you should really get around to fixing it up.  Mine Storm is a nice Asteroids clone.  I'm planning on getting a flashcart from Vectrex.biz (that is, if the creator is still taking orders).  Since it's got the space to hold all of the official Vectrex games plus a few extras, I think it'll be a pretty good deal.  The only thing is that I won't have the overlays.  I don't care about them really, but there are a few I would like to have.  Do you have any games for it?

Do you know what's wrong with it?  If the problem isn't extremely complicated, you should really get around to fixing it up.  Mine Storm is a nice Asteroids clone.  I'm planning on getting a flashcart from Vectrex.biz (that is, if the creator is still taking orders).  Since it's got the space to hold all of the official Vectrex games plus a few extras, I think it'll be a pretty good deal.  The only thing is that I won't have the overlays.  I don't care about them really, but there are a few I would like to have.  Do you have any games for it? 

I don't know what's wrong with it.  It was my friend's and I've seen it working.  He wanted to get rid of it, so he put it in his truck (in the cab) and dropped it off in the morning.  When we tried it out at my place, it didn't work.  The Vectrex was really cold (it had been in the truck overnight) so I'm worried that there may have been some condensation on the inside or something and we fried it when we plugged it in.

Don't have any game carts for it.  I actually had the same plan as you with the multicart.

Please tell me you're not one of those people who mock Doom on Saturn for it's graphics?  It's quite good for a port...

Also, my bro is buying me back my favourite strategy game back after he pawned it.  The irony.  Turns out my grandpa has an Ebay and Theme Park on Saturn is my birthday gift  ;D ;D ;D

one of these.  Hopefully he doesn't mistakingly get me shin theme park :-X

So I've been meaning to catalog the haul I made the weekend before last since... Well, since the weekend before last. Obviously I'm not getting around to it. Here's what I picked up:
Two Genesis systems each with two controllers and cables,
one Game Gear,
a bunch of Genesis games (the only good ones being Sonic the Hedgehog, NBA Jam, and possibly something which mentions explosions and biker babes on the back, haven't played it yet),
and a Power Joy with two multicarts and the second controller.

The SEGA systems had to be cleaned and the Power Joy's bizarre cable thing (is that seriously an AV cable with half a power cord attached to it?) actually fell out of the connecting plastic piece when I brought it home, but I'm still happy since I got it all for fourteen bucks. The cable can be easily re-soldered (in fact it was clearly re-soldered before; guess it didn't take). The multicarts won't work in my Twin Fami or my Super Joy III though.

Haven't tested the systems yet as I'm lazy, but I did spend a day last week cleaning a bunch of my expanding vintage game collection. Holy crap, let me tell you about one of them. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the Game Boy. Bizarrely, I've had it for at least a decade, although I got it used. It's always worked perfectly, including when I booted it up a few months ago. I took some pictures after I opened it:

(http://img29.imageshack.us/img29/1305/20100607dirtytmnt.jpg)

Keep in mind this was after I cleaned the pins, before I realized how dirty it was and opened it. This thing was so nasty that even the screw needed cleaning; I had to clean my screwdriver bit after removing it.
Here's what my cleaning rag looked like at the end of the day:

(http://img194.imageshack.us/img194/5483/20100607cleaningrag.jpg)

The really impressive stains on the lower left were from a couple NES games that were more than a bit nasty (one was Shatterhand, the other I can't recall), but the goo (no clue what it is. Ancient soda?) didn't make it onto the board so it wasn't as impressive. Plus, that's a Game Boy game, you can't expect it to have as much gunk as an NES game.

I hope to get a bit to open my Genesis games soon and see what they have in store for me. I haven't delved into my Atari games since I don't like messing with the labels. At least they have normal Philips head screws.

EDIT: I think the second NES game was Xexyz, which was actually the very first game I got when I decided to start collecting older games.

After my flea market haul yesterday I decided to get together my acquisitions of the last three weeks or so and take a group photo:

(http://img526.imageshack.us/img526/6350/20100621loot.jpg)

I have the cords for the Genesis systems too, I just didn't have room for them on the table. No AV cables, just RF, unfortunately.

Here's a closer look at the Genesis games. Lots of crappy sports games that came with the systems, there are more in the previous picture above the Super Joy. But I got the two Genesis systems with controllers and cords, the Game Gear, and every Genesis game on the table except for Sonic Spinball and Flashback all for $10. Wasn't gonna pass that up because the sports games were worthless.

(http://img203.imageshack.us/img203/6449/20100621recentgengames.jpg)

I was also given some video game stuff that a deceased friend used to own, but I didn't feel right taking pictures of it to post online. I have fond memories of playing the games with her when we were kids, so needless to say I'll be treasuring them. The batteries in her Game Boy hadn't been changed since she died.

Ikaruga (Gamecube CIB excellent extremely rare 19.99
Pokemon heart Gold was new until I opened it to play.
The world Ends with You (CIB Excellent, extremely rare for only 19.99

Here's what pissed me off enough to write about it at TellGamestop.com.

I bought a new copy of Wario Ware D.I.Y. but it was already opened, and to make things worse, it was not in perfect new shape. I was also missing the Club Nintendo registery sheet that should (at least to the best of my knowledge) have came with it. No more gamestop. From now on, it's Play N Trade all the way. I feel bad for whoever reads that survey!

Really? They're common as dirt here in Ohio. If they work I'd be willing to sell you one cheap if you want, I definitely don't need three of the things. Still need to test them though.

Nobody should ever buy from Gamestop under any circumstances. They're the scummiest dealers of video games in the country, including the creepy obese guy with the van of stolen PS3s that parks next to the tobacco store. Buy from local independent stores, charity-oriented thrift stores, and flea markets if you can. If not buy online. If you can't do that either, try the big chains like Best Buy, Toys 'R Us, etc. But never give those pukes at Gamestop your money. They'll just jack up the prices on their used games, pull more you-should-have-pre-ordered-the-game bullshit (99% of the time at Best Buy has games release day, and Amazon often offers release day arrival on big releases), and reseal their used games and sell 'em as new (as you unfortunately discovered).

I've never been to Play N Trade, Gamestop has poisoned me against chain video game stores so it never occurred to me to check them out. The younger folk here probably don't remember, but there used to be this really cool chain called Funcoland that had great stuff and decent prices, but Gamestop bought them a while before they bought Electronics Boutique and now Funcoland is crap.

Seriously people: don't shop there. If you love video games, it is your duty to hate Gamestop.

I'm never going to another GameStop again. Maybe that survey will help other customers out. I am hover, going bac k today to get my Club Nintendo card that was supposed to go with WarioWare D.I.Y.

The only place I fully support is Play N Trade for one reason, and one reason only: The sell old games. Selling games at those low prices will keep me going too. I bought a CIB Pokemon Box for just $50!

I loved FuncoLand until they turned into that spineless GameStop.

I just got a great deal from Craigslist:

(http://img25.imageshack.us/img25/4797/20100622crgslstn64loot.jpg)

DK64, the mic hookup, and the expansion pack weren't mentioned in the ad; but I still drove quite a way to pick it up because it was so cheap. I'm pretty happy, not gonna lie. I've got a couple AV cables I can use - thank you Nintendo for using the same cord for a decade! The guy even offered a cheaper price after discovering the cable was missing, but I couldn't take further advantage and gave him the original price. Now I just need to test it, clean it, and see if I can fix the loose sticks on the controllers.

I'm still kind of in shock over this. That's five of my favorite games for the N64, plus Yoshi's Story and Mario Party which are good in their own right, several other games that I may keep or sell depending on my whims, all for 20 dollars. Sorry if I seem overly excited, this is just my first really great deal is all.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: Nightstar699 on June 22, 2010, 07:17:29 PM
Wow! Another great deal! People totally overcharge for N64 games.  >:( I contacted a guy from my craigslist, I wanted Starfox 64, and Pokemon Stadium 2, and he wanted 30 dollars


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: tankexmortis on June 22, 2010, 07:42:01 PM
Hopefully in a few years the prices will get more reasonable. Until then I'll have to keep an eye out for more great deals on N64 games, since I'm still missing a bunch that I want. Do Japanese games only play on a Japanese N64? I'd like to get my hands on some of those games (Sin & Punishment, mmmmm...), but if I need an import system that'll make things a bit harder.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: Nightstar699 on June 22, 2010, 07:45:20 PM
I think it's the same situation as the SNES/Super Famicom. My friend has some japanese N64 games and he uses a converter to play them. But the cartridges themselves do have a form of lockout on them. Sin and Punishment is great game, but very expensive. Its like, 40 dollars! :o

Hoooooly crap were those games dirty. Not a single one of them would play before I cleaned them, and it took me a good three hours of cleaning before I got them all working (Hey You Pikachu is still a little flaky, but I don't have the actual microphone anyway, just the part that hooks to the system). I've never bought a group of games that large where none would work without cleaning before. Maybe that's why I got it so cheap...

Haven't had much time (and money) to look around for games and stuff lately, so when my mates and I had to buy some chips and LEDs for a school assignment we took it as an excuse to visit some nearby thrift stores and street markets in search of cheap electronic tat and old video games. Not the best findings in the world but not bad either!

Power Joy Famiclone with PJ-008 - $5
(http://img689.imageshack.us/img689/935/dscn0789xw.jpg)
I didn't have a Power Joy until now, I'm always stumbling across them and I tend to avoid them like the plague mostly because of their ultra shoddy construction, but this one actually looks decent, I mean for Famiclone standards. For one, the AV lead is actually quite thick and sturdy (gasp!), but what sealed the deal for me was the PJ-008 cartridge that it had plugged in. I was mostly getting it for the cartridge and later I found out that the Power Joy that it came with isn't as bad as I thought.

The system itself is quite a bit sturdier than most Famiclones, and surprisingly the video quality is great. No oversaturated colors and no vertical lines on the video output. I'd say that its video output is near toaster NES quality. Classic incorrect Famiclone audio, the built in light gun works fine and it comes with 10 built in games, which are actually heavily edited versions of games like Duck Hunt, Hogan's Alley, Tengen Tetris, Battle City and some others. Also pushing Select will position the cursor on a non existent menu entry, trying to access it results in a system crash. Oh, China. ::)

As for the PJ-008, this is my second copy and it turns out that they're not the exact same. A few games are different between them, as if they were two versions of the PJ-008 cartridge. I might elaborate on this later, especially if someone around here shows some interest. :)

Juice Box ROM based video player - $6 each
(http://img294.imageshack.us/img294/9885/dscn0790p.jpg)
Personally I didn't know about these before. My friend whipped out his Blackberry and Googled it on the spot. It plays videos stored on tiny ROM cartridges on a backlit color LCD screen. It seems to have some great hacking potential so my friend bought one and I bought the other. Will mess with these later, after doing some research.

Cotton Candy Machine - $2
(http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/2715/dscn0791v.jpg)
For two measly dollars I couldn't let this one pass up. Hmm... sugar (http://img594.imageshack.us/img594/9382/home2c.gif).

Electric coffee warmers - $1 each
(http://img404.imageshack.us/img404/4602/dscn0792n.jpg)
Found these on the street, got one for myself and one for my mom. The heating elements look OK but the mains leads are nasty. Badly injection molded plugs and frighteningly thin wires that reek of toluene. Wonder why one of the cords is broken? They're so thin and fragile that I cut the cable using my bare hands.

These things are rated at 500W, at 220V that's about two amps going through a cable thinner than the cords on really cheap Christmas lights, guaranteed fire hazard or your money back! So I'm definitely not plugging them in until I can replace the mains cords on them with real wires.

Nice Power Joy (well, relatively)! I didn't find that cartridge with mine; I got a couple of Supermax carts. They aren't working on my Famicom or my Super Joy III, hopefully they'll work on the Power Joy. Mine apparently had its AV/power line broken at some point and someone soldered them back together, but it didn't take. I still haven't got around to re-soldering it. What kind of AC adapter does yours take?

(http://ti.gameexplorers.gr/Theme_Park_jpg_1ac53dd26f1a752f259cb510362901e8_thumb.jpg) on Ebay for $15

(http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/312rxHyWejL._SL500_AA300_.jpg) for $18 on Ebay and it's quite rare.

I enjoyed easily accesing the games I want on ebay for once :)

One is from Hawaii and the other is coming from oregon.  Anyone have any idea how long they will take to get delivered to western Canada?  I have not used ebay before.

^That is a sick lot of stuff.  Anyone feel like picking up one of those NES TV's for me and shipping it to Wisconsin?  :D

So my find today isn't nearly so spectacular.  My gaming tv crapped out recently (big old green splotch in the screen like a speaker was placed next to it... except I DON"T OWN ANY SPEAKERS!).  Went on CL looking for a cheap replacement and found a very nice 19" Emerson TV from 1986 for $15.  Works fantastic!!

Got a working oldschool iMac for $10, system only. Not bad!

(http://img293.imageshack.us/img293/1992/dscn1103.jpg)

I've got a spare Apple keyboard that suits it well. Came with 256MB of RAM and the original 6 GB HDD with Mac OS 9.2 installed.
The original CD drive was toast but I managed to install a spare laptop DVD drive in there in order to boot from CD and disable the password. Then I replaced the hard drive with a 20 GB one and installed Mac OS X 10.2, works great especially for those old Mac-only games like Marathon. :)

Lastnight I ordered these off amazon:

Mega Man (Game Boy)
Soul Calibur III (PS2, sealed)
Street Fighter Alpha 2 (Sega Saturn, sealed)

Tomorrow I get to go to Play N Trade with 200 dollars, hope I find lots of good games.

Indeed, these machines seem to be great for all kinds of modding. If I had the time and money, I'd remove the original iMac motherboard and stuff a Zotac ION board inside it, those teeny tiny Atom boards are quite speedy for things like Youtube and they can run Mac OS X too! I like the idea of having a modern computer for casual use inside a compact iMac case. ;D

Anyway, I also found a non working, really dirty SNES for like 3 dollars. It had a blown fuse and a broken power input jack, so I hacked a standard 2.1 mm barrel connector in there (same as the Famicom). Kinda sloppy cutting job but it works for me:

There was a clear out at work.  Hundreds of games up for grabs, most were clones in different languages of games I already have.  But I found these:

(http://i261.photobucket.com/albums/ii47/L___E___T/Mobile%20Uploads/1-1.jpg)

Best part?   Brand new!  A little dog-eared, but I didn't expect to find 2 new SFC games and a new GB game of all things...   There were also a few golden oldies - Spectrum, Atari, CPC and Amiga games strewn about.  Again all new, sat in cardboard storage boxes for decades! :S

I don't know what the DS game is but it had screenshots of some retro looking game on the back in addition to the main game (survival horror I think).  Anyone recognise it or can read the name?


I also picked up some new GBC games, but they're not cool enough to show - I just know they'll get thrown out else.

So it's true that every game company has a magical warehouse that's just full of old valuable stuff that they just give away to their employees every once in awhile? They told me it was just a rumor but I always had faith! :D


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: L___E___T on July 29, 2010, 11:28:28 PM
That's kinda true.  Usually it gets thrown out.  Sacrilege!

[UPDATE] A colleague actually recognised the DS game this morning!  Titled Nanashi no Game, it was something he'd hoped to see a localised version of. 

You play a famicom-style game (on arcade cabs oddly enough) in the game which is full of glitches.  those glitches then start to play around with real life and lots of nasty things happen..   It sounds.. genius!

Check out the trailer - I now HAVE to play this.

There was no localised version :( but there was a sequel in Japan :)

If I'm remembering right, the JVC X'eye is a fairly sought after Sega Genesis and CD combo unit (or Mega Drive and Mega CD combo unit for you non-US folk :) ).  It's about the size of the Mega Drive system by itself.  Not quite as compact as the CDX, but still pretty sweet.

Something is only worth what people will pay.  I don't see any recent auctions on eBay for those that ended around $900.

But, it is still a rare and cool console.  Very nice find!

Went flea market hunting with a friend this morning, I got some stuff that I needed like replacement video cables and a universal TV remote, and also I got stuff that I didn't really need, but I end up getting anyway, like SNES pirates  ::):P

Another Pokémon pirate

(http://img828.imageshack.us/img828/1351/picacho2.jpg)

(http://img825.imageshack.us/img825/8041/picacho2back.jpg)

Notice the SNS-TN-USA code, which corresponds to the game The Terminator. Here's a gameplay video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RS8fR53Y1-E) of it. I already own a copy of this game, so I got this one for a trade request.

I also found a Donkey Kong Country 3 cart that I didn't notice that it was a pirate long after I paid for it and left. Shame on me for impulse buying and not doing a meticulous check.

(http://img409.imageshack.us/img409/5435/dkc3bootleg.jpg)

(http://img690.imageshack.us/img690/7091/dkc3board.jpg)

Fortunately I didn't pay much for it and hey, it's still DKC3 right? But I can't get it to work for dear life, Nintendo keeps telling me that I'm going to hell for being a filthy pirate: ::)

(http://img841.imageshack.us/img841/3949/dkc3copyprotection.jpg)

Tried replacing the battery and scrubbing the contacts to no avail. It got me really curious, could it be that it needs a particular setup to work properly, or is it just defective? All of my other SNES pirates run flawlessly, so who knows.

I just got one of those gun power joys. I couldn't get it to work, but after some taping,
I finally got it to work. It has all these absurd hacks of nintendo games. Theres a duck hunt, where the dog's a boy,
which can disappear at will, and the ducks are helicopters. I might take some pictures later.
There's also a hack of tetris, which at first glance seems lame, but then come the new blocks.
They hacked all these cool blocks in there, and It's way more fun to play.

Looks like fun, and if I can get a few hours out of it it should be worth its price. The cover is hilarious.

Nice finds.  :D  I wish I had a SNES pirate. A multicart would be neat!

Also, I don't recognize that Aladdin cartridge. Is that Magic Carpet 1001, Super Game's Aladdin, or Hummer Team?


EDIT: Just noticed the JY mark. That's Hummer Team, right?


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)

I guess. MasterDisk's the expert  :P I think Hummer team were the programmers, and JY was the publisher? Something like that. But it's the Hummer Team one.

I never really paid attention to the fact there's a Super Game version. Never played it.

Or so I thought!
The a**hole deleted my bid because "3 or 4 carts aren't working". Hah! I even told him I wouldn't mind if some aren't working. But no response at all. I think the price was way under his expectations. I wonder if I have a way to complain to yahoo about this... s*cker.

It's a fun game, but it's insanely glitchy. You can hit start and move the players around, and the game freezes at the beginning and title screen so you have to hit start immediately after it boots.

Also it's impossible to finish any level.

WOW famiac are you a Sonic collector? Because that is one of the holy grails, and it also looks legitimate, hopefully you won't find that it's a fake or something. But according to that auction info, I think this would not be a problem, I have heard about Nicola before. Nice catch! A bit expensive, but hey, it's a PROTOTYPE! Congratulations!

Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX - for $4.50 at Game X Change, works perfectly... I wanted it over the black and white original "Link's Awakening". Once "A Link to the Past: Four Swords" comes in from FamicomFreak I will have the first 6 games.

Legend of Zelda: Collectors Edition (GameCube) - Legend of Zelda: 1, 2, Ocarina of Time (5) and Majora's Mask (6)
Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (3) and Four Swords (9) (Gameboy Advance)
Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX (4) (Gameboy Color)


Notice a theme???
All of the games are re-releases, because I am cool like that and it also means that the first 6 games were really well liked!

I may buy Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons (7) and Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages ( 8 ) because they will also play on my Gamecube, and it will make the collection seem better since I ended up with Zelda 9.

But I will stop there because I absolutely hate Wind Waker.

I just my two unopened copies of Nekketsu Beach Volleyball (Super Game Boy) (assuming they weren't since I don't know if Japanese Game Boy games were factory sealed in the way US games are). Now I have two unopened and one opened but very good condition for play copy.

One of them is an RPG and actually not bad at all while the other one is a side scroller. You can check out videos on youtube to show how they play.

Why two unopened ones in addition to another opened one?  You're going to play one and admire the other two? :P

Ah, so they're not Pokemon ROM hacks.  Even if I never liked Digimon, it'd still be cool to play an old Pokemon game with new stuff in it.

Hey everyone, finally registered here.  I've been lurking around this site for a while now and thought I'd post my finds today.

Just bought a small lot of Super Famicom and Japanese gameboy games.  Everything came with original packaging and instructions, except the multi-cart which had a box only, no instructions.   

Super Famicom:

The Combatribes
Last Fighter Twin

Gameboy

Ninja Gaiden
Some 8 in 1 cart
Saint Seiya Paradise (apparently this is quite rare and valuable, still trying to find more info)

Looks like Saint Seiya made the purchase worth while.

I am posting this here, because I know that a lot of you collect multi-carts, so if anyone is interested in the gameboy one, just let me know.  This cart has 8 games on it, which appear to be Rockman 2, Robocop 2, Mickey Mouse, Batman, Soccer featuring Kunio Kun, Spiderman, some game develped by Irem, can't make it out and a Konami game which I also can't make out.  The cart comes packaged in a purple box.

I got these four for a buck. I only wanted the Pikachu and Mario but those other ones looked pretty kewl too.

I also picked this Nintendo Wii classic controller for five bucks.

Finally, I got this game I used to play a lot when I was younger. Glad to have it back!

More findings over the week for sure!

The game is on the cart, but if you put the cd into a Sega CD while playing the game it plays full pre-recorded music instead of the 16 bit sounds.

Title: Pictures of your latest Retro haul - Show off your new loot here!
Post by: tappybot on January 21, 2011, 10:34:25 AM
After I go hunting, I drag my loot back to my place, give it a wipe down, and photograph it before putting it with all the rest.
I take these photos for an archive reference, but also so I can show my friends back home my collection as I acquire it.

Here's my catch from last week:

(http://img690.imageshack.us/img690/3631/cimg3094c.jpg)

* I don't collect GBA games, but WarioWare Twisted was only 300yen.. I really couldn't refuse.. I love that game!
edit: For a closer look, right click and open image in new tab



So don't be shy now.. Let's see what latest retro matter you've gathered!

There are already three finds threads. I've merged this thread with Finds (All Others) in the "Other Gaming" sub-forum.  Don't be afraid to post pictures and/or descriptions of the stuff you got in that thread though. There's nothing against that! :)

... So many games, so little time!


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: FamicomRetroGamer on January 22, 2011, 10:45:46 PM
Get as many as possible, as your budget allow because outside Japan they aren't cheap as in Japan.

If I were to visit Japan, it'd be to shop for Famicom games, old consoles and whatnot.

Received this today:

2 Sega Mega Drive consoles (1 fully working, the other with no bags is supposedly with no sound)

16 Sega Mega Drive games
1 Sega Genesis game (Sonic 1)

So happy with the purchase. ;D

I don't think I'll be messing with these toys, instead buy the ATGames/Blaze SMD console.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: tappybot on January 27, 2011, 10:54:08 AM
Wow, that's beautiful!  So what do you have there... Road Rash, Shinobi 2, Flicky, Sonic, Sonic 3, hm.. Streets of Rage? aannd?

Sega Genesis   
   Flicky
   Sonic the Hedgehog 1

Battle Master (SHVC-5B)
Final Fantasy IV (SHVC-F4)
Dragon Ball Z (SHVC-AZ5J-JPN)
Yuu Yuu Hakusho 2 (SHVC-Y2)

I purchased all these games from a friend in Japan for $18 shipped!

I already had
Final Fight (SHVC-FT)
Front Mission (SHVC-AGCJ-JPN)
Starfox (SHVC-FO)
Super Mario RPG (SHVC-ARWJ-JPN)

It's kinda hard to see it's slow when we get used to it that way (habits).

Check it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drVW-Z4nxE4&feature=related

By the way, is SMD free region? I've been playing Genesis (NTSC) games on my PAL SMD.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: jpx72 on January 29, 2011, 09:21:30 AM
PAL megadrive (50Hz) can't play Sonic1 in fast (60Hz) speed even when you plug the NTSC version in. So I thought that the ROM (game) in both NTSC and PAL cartridges were the same. But from what you're saying, they are not the same, because the NTSC genesis (60Hz) plays PAL Sonic (50Hz) in slow (50Hz) mode.

The SMD is not region free, but not all games are protected. For example, Sonic can be played worldwide without problems :) just the speed would be different.
My PAL SMD is region (NTSC/PAL) and language (US[EU]/JP) modded so I can play anything and am able to see the region-lockout screens on some cartridges (like Alien Soldier).  But the behavior of the NTSC sonic cartridge is different, when I switch the console to NTSC (60Hz) and plug the PAL Sonic (50Hz) inside, the game still plays fast (60Hz).

Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: tappybot on January 31, 2011, 02:28:27 AM
I came at the beginning of last July and have been teaching English at a private company.
I'm just not that into it though, or maybe it's not for me. It's a little stressful for me. Sort of looking forward to going back home and relaxing with my acquired game collection.  :cherry:


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: manuel on January 31, 2011, 02:33:08 AM
Are you kidding?
I totally LOVE teaching English, but I can't get a fixed position (yet...), because I'm no native speaker.  :-\ Sometimes I teach as a replacement teacher, though. The world's not fair.  :D

Well, enjoy your last weeks in Japan and get all the stuff you want as long as you have the chance!  :gamer:


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: son_ov_hades on January 31, 2011, 08:34:54 PM
Is it teaching in general or just teaching English? I'm seriously considering teaching English abroad.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: tappybot on January 31, 2011, 11:45:40 PM
It's teaching English.  It's not at a public school, I think that would have been a better choice for me.

The pay is great, but some of the people I work with are ... well they've kind of ruined the job for me.  They're such unpleasant, rude, and unkind people.  Of course all of Japan teaching jobs can't be like this, but it's been a bad experience.

I'll come back to Japan in the future but not in a job like this.


I would recommend you find something just for the more pleasant experience of seeing Japan, and you probably won't find yourself in a position like myself.
I hear being an ALT in a public school is the nicer job.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: manuel on February 02, 2011, 10:09:31 PM
Being an ALT in a public school is probably a dream job.
The "real" teacher does all the work and the ALT only has to talk and say some sentences for illustration.

I spent 5 years as an Eikaiwa teacher back in the day.  Its no picnic at first, but after the first few months I found it became quite easy.  All in all it was a good experience for me....well, it must have been for me to spend that long doing it ;D

Mind you, these days the market is way different and my impression is that the work conditions have suffered a lot.  So I'm probably viewing it through rose tinted lenses.

Anyway, nice finds tappybot.  That is an impressive haul.  I notice you picked up "Gorby no Pipeline" in there!

Post by: tappybot on February 02, 2011, 11:46:40 PM
Those unpleasant people are actually Japanese women. There are two in particular who are such mean people.  It's like they have their period every single day. Not just that, they've tried to humiliate me in the monthly meetings. The company boss apologized to me, but it's still difficult to put up with.

I'm sick of talking and thinking about it.  Looking forward to finishing  the job.



Yeah, I picked up Gorby's Pipeline after you guys talking about it being rather rare (and I hadn't seen it anywhere else). It was 800yen, but I'd rather pay a bit more than never find it again. One of you said you got it at Mandarake for cheap, which is amazing, because Mandarake usually charges 6 or 800 for anything remotely rare (in my area anyway).

edit:   Oh yeah, I also picked up that 3 Eyes boy game after I saw it mentioned here on the site.  I almost didn't get it, but decided I should pick it up while I have it in my reach.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: senseiman on February 03, 2011, 10:01:32 PM
Yeah, I was the one who got Gorby no Pipeline cheap (210 yen) at Mandarake.  That was definitely underpriced though, it is a hard one to find.  And its definitely a "must have" game for the discerning Famicom collector!

My latest "find" is one of the very first light gun games ever produced by Nintendo (way back in 1970).  I already posted it elsewhere but I like this thing so much I'm putting it here too  ;D:

The Tabletop Famiclone seems competent enough. If you power it on without a cartridge it has a tetris game that can be played alone, against a computer, or with another player.

I only tried one game with it real quick, but it functioned as hoped.  The controllers are kind of small so not quite the comfort of a typical Famicom/nes pad, but not terrible either.  The Dpad felt alright.
I might have to try it again later with a different game.  Onyanko Town isn't as responsive as something like Mario.

This one didn't come with an AC adapter, but accepts the Famicom adapter and can also take batteries.


I'd like to try out the TV Game 6 but I need an RF adapter or something. Unless the single output wire can be plugged into an a/v video port instead of the funky UHF/VHF box. Nice and clean, you'd never think it's going on 40 years old. The battery compartment is kind of corroded though... Surprised anyone would even use batteries.

Pleasantly surprised when I noticed my New Famicom retains the accessory port.  Looks like I won't need to buy an older one in order to try out these 3D glasses.  Does the US top loader have the accessory port too?  Crap, and I was holding out on Arkanoid 2 with special controllers because I thought my system wouldn't play it.

That is definitely a nice haul, Tappybot!  I'll be sad when you leave Japan and won't have any more of these shopping tales to share (I love seeing stuff like this)!

The TV game 6 looks really cool, I like the box.  I'm curious about how the 3D system works too, I've never seen one before.

You don't specifically need a pre-Famicom RF switch from Nintendo for this to work.  If you have any "manual" RF switches (ex: Atari 2600 RF switch), those will work too.

Is that table-thingy Famiclone any good?
I always see it in one shop, but can't make my mind up if I really want it...

I had one of those myself, but the controller is quite bad and it doesn't work with many games. It is also made out of very cheap plastic.
Other than that, it is okay.

Went to the pawn shop and picked up some Atari 2600 for $0.99 each.

-Video Pinball
-Yars' Revenge
-Pac Man (It's suppose to be a really shitty version of the game, but this is my first time playing and I really really like it.)
-Phoenix
-Haunted House

also pre-ordered the 3DS. Could be good.

Don't focus that much on Super Famicom, unless there are deals to be had, or awesome games to raise the quality of my collection [Super Metroid, Animal Forest]

Until recently, I thought those two oldman games were either Mahjong or something not particularly fun.. so when I learned otherwise I had to rush out and nab'em. I should had known there was fun in there, look at his grin  ;D

Good choice. I'm still battling whether I want a SNES powerpak or NES. The snes one has way too many incompatibilities, but the NES doesn't have as many fun titles (in my opinion). Probably will opt for the NES as I enjoy listening to chiptune.

Post by: son_ov_hades on February 14, 2011, 08:52:20 PM
I have a decent sized NES collection so the NES PowerPak doesn't do much for me. On the other hand I only have like 4 SNES games so I figured this was cheaper than buying a bunch of carts haha.

Thanks, Senseiman.

You're right, I shouldn't be so hard on it.  I'm all for Garfield, but.. eeer.. yeah those sprites are pretty bad XD .. His head changes size depending on which sprite is active.. It's....    YYYeeah. 
I was hoping it would be something simple like Popeye, or some other one screen arcade style game.   

I respect the 1 life challenge though.  It means I'm not finished with this game until I beat it.

Here's what I gathered today:
(http://img840.imageshack.us/img840/7528/cimg3152.jpg)

The Super Gameboy 2 was 10yen!  It was stickered for 80yen, but then it was discounted to 10yen at the register.. They're been trying to phase out their retro since the middle of last year I guess.. they're mostly cleaned out.


Tried out Space Shadow earlier (uses the light gun apparently) but I can't get it to respond at all even though press start is an option at the title.. Maybe it doesn't work with the AV Famicom...

Oh, GEO or an affiliate, right?

This (where I got the Super Gameboy 2) was actually at the GEO affiliate I've gotten some other things before, and while it wasn't in the same section as the retro stuff (which has now been consolidated to a tiny one wall area, it was discounted to 10yen.  I wonder if all their retro stuff is 10 yen now...  If that's the case, you might wanna do a look over your GEO's and see if there's anything remotely interesting.

I'll let you know about the boxed gameboy games for sale when me and my hoard of games make it back home.  Might have a couple I'll be willing to sell or trade.


I'm surprised no one asked about the cucumber game on the very bottom, yet.  The first few times I saw this in the store I couldn't make sense of it.. I thought, oh, it must be some super rare cucumber recipe game...   Not until I actually considered buying it did I notice the cucumber thing is a sticker put over top some other game cartridge,and somewhat recently it seems. The sticker is an advertisement for some cucumber store dated 2009.  Then I decided I should pick it up just for the mystery of it... What could it be,  this secret, mystery game!?   

Well I haven't tried it yet, and I might save it till I meet my American friend back home so we can unveil it together...   But my guess is Hydlide Special (white cartridge games usually seem to be crappy.   It was 800yen, so it wasn't a good deal or anything... but the mystery of it.. .I had to have it!  :question:


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: fredJ on February 28, 2011, 08:33:40 AM
Yes, I'm trying to find Japanese boxed game boy games. Not color ones though.

What is the region code for the cucumber game?


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
Post by: tappybot on February 28, 2011, 09:26:43 AM
Region Code? 

It says ' Qucumbers & ハミリコンピュータ'  Yes, HAMily spelled out in katakana. Wonder if that's suppose to be a food joke or the person whipping this up didn't know how to spell family in katakana. The advert sticker is completely obscuring the original cartridge sticker beneath so I can't give any clues from that.  Ten it also has store times and an email address... cool_as_qucumbers@yahoo.co.jp ... Is that even an expression known to Japanese?  I wonder if a foreigner is behind this.

However, the back of the game is typical, but here's one clue that might help.. The text on the back is red, which isn't uncommon, but there are other white cartridges with blue, or black text so this should narrow it down a bit.  I can tell you right now it's not Doraemon.  If it's not Hydlide, my guess is Final Fantasy... also common and really cheap.


Title: Re: Finds (All Others)
