Technical & Repair Assistance / RF-AV Question
Last post by Saab93 - Today at 08:20:00 am
  Hi guys, i have a question about hooking up my Famicom, if you hook the RF switch up to AV converter box and have composite cables going out, would this make it any easier to hook up and operate [not having to go to 95-96]?

Thanks, Saab

Famicom / Disk System / Re: What got you into famicom?...

As I mentioned in my introductory post, Nintendo have been my chief favourites when it comes to home gaming: as is demonstrated by the ownership of a SNES, N64, Gamecube, Wii and Wii-U. I've always enjoyed NES titles and there's a few in particular that I've played via emulation. Speaking of which, I have a stack of NES/Famicom VC games on my PAL Wii but some of the Famicom and NTSC NES ones don't work, despite endless fiddling with Homebrew loaders.

Lately I've been eager to check out previously unexplored machines and the AV Famicom fit the bill - especially given its Japan only status, which appeals to my interest in anything that's "alternative" and plus, I'll get to play the games that wouldn't work on my Wii. :)

Heh I don't know, I played it as a kid and haven't played any variant of Boulder Dash in many years. I think about every Boulder Dash clone is unique though, and I played a bunch of them, I'm not even sure which is the original one. According to Wikipedia it seems to be developed for the Atari 8-bit family first, and apparently "the first home computer title to be converted to an arcade console".

Thanks! :) 

Quote from: UglyJoe on January 15, 2022, 08:58:45 amWhat games are you getting with the Famicom?

I basically created a bundle and chose the following games along with the machine:

    *Xevious

    *Nuts & Milk

    *Star Luster

    *Elevator Action

    *Ninja Jajamaru

I've also bought from other sellers: Super Mario Bros., Gradius and Makaimura. I made sure to select games that don't require Japanese fluency and I think that this will be enough to tide me over for a while. ;D

Hiya everyone, I'm a newcomer to FW but certainly not to Nintendo gaming. I own the SNES, N64, Gamecube, Wii and Wii-U. Very shortly I'll also own an AV Famicom so it seemed like a good idea to join this forum. :)
