Quote from: CGQuarterly on September 02, 2012, 05:27:49 PMAbsolutely right.Quote from: BigusSchmuck on September 02, 2012, 02:27:26 PMThats just stupid crazy. Someone ought to create a bunch of bootlegs of this game so the rest of us can actually play it on the actual system instead of emulating it!Just buy a flash card.
Quote from: gameofyou on August 21, 2012, 09:46:34 PMPaisa49, I usually pull the card out by grabbing the USB connector from the top & bottom.Great, thanks again.
Quote from: gameofyou on August 20, 2012, 09:02:02 PMI've had no issues playing pc engine games on my turbografx-16. This flash card works great; thanks. By the way, when pulling it out of my tg-16, do you recommend grabbing a hold of the cart a certain way to minimize the risk of damage to the cart?Quote from: esadajr on August 20, 2012, 12:07:04 PMI've been unable to get any japanese game to work. I use the rom converter to remove the header, then flash my game checking the "swap bit" option. However I only get a white screen. The japanese games I've tried (with no luck) so far are Detana Twinbee, Coryoon and the japanese version of Splatterhouse.This has been a source of confusion, but I believe the User Manual is now correct. If your SYSTEM is Japanese, then you need to check the 'flip bits' box (for all games). If your SYSTEM is USA, then you should not check the box (for any games).
I will be interested to see if the Supergrafx games work. I don't know of anyone that's tried it yet.
Quote from: MotherGunner on January 02, 2009, 01:51:29 AMIf you want Blu-Ray and upscaled DVD go with PS3. The fact that you connect online with it gurantees firmware updates not only system but Blu-Ray Media-Side as well.MG makes a good point. The way I've rationalized this potential purchase is the following. I'll have to put down about $250.00 for a good blue ray player. Why not spend a little more for a blue ray player that I can connect to online for firmware updates and happens to play video games? I'm thinking of going with either a used or refurbished PS3 now. I'll be combing Craigslist for bargains.
Keep in mind though that while you will get 1080p out of all Blu-Rays, most PS3 games only output to 720p. A real dissappointed considering Xbox 360 upscales everything to 1080p regardless if its native or not.

Quote from: guyjin on December 12, 2008, 11:50:52 PMI dunno about you guys, but I've started a CRT hoard already.Around what year did new CRT tv's cease being produced?
Quote from: PC-ENGINE HELL on December 06, 2008, 03:44:35 PMNope. I also suggest to stop using RF hookups though. Thats the worst of the worst, esp on such a new tv.Neither of my systems are modded. If I were to get both systems modded, how much would it run me, and what type of mod should I do (i.e. s-video, composite video, etc.)?
Quote from: mobiusclimber on November 18, 2008, 02:06:10 PMI just found a cool site for reviews here. The reviews are all short, but they have a bunch of screenshots with them, which is nice.I checked this website out, and it doesn't seem to be fully functional. I noticed a lot of messed up links.
Quote from: dhowerter on October 31, 2008, 12:11:01 AMI use my cart on a US TG-16, and I've had no compatibility issues. Everything works fine.Quote from: Golgo13 on October 30, 2008, 07:58:33 AMI have the 64mb one, it is pretty awesome and I have had no compatibility problems with it, but I havent tried it on my US TG16 yet, I will have to break that out later.Please do ^_^
Quote from: Duo_R on October 29, 2008, 09:36:29 PMYou did the Turbolist groupbuy right? I was the one that replied to you in regards to contacting the "group buyer" since they shipped to the wrong address.I bought it from someone that participated in the group-buy. Luckily, the replacement was shipped to BT, and, shortly after contacting him, he sent the replacement flash cart to me. By the way, BT rocks.
Quote from: Duo_R on October 29, 2008, 12:28:17 AMThey don't recommend on their website to use their email address. You actually have to post using their forums. Many times when people say they take forever it is because they waste time sending emails which they don't check.This is correct, you have to post on their Customer Service forums. I did this from the beginning of discovering the defect, and they were very quick to respond when the process first started. However, after they confirmed reciept of the defective card 2 months after my mailing, it was like pulling teeth getting them to respond. Mind you, I only emailed maybe 5 times after they confirmed reciept, and I had given up on even receiving a functional flash cart. Then, on a lark, I decided to check the forum to see if they had responded, and they wound up shipping my replacement to the person that coordinated the mass purchase. The product works great, but, again, their customer service leaves a lot to be desired.
Quote from: guest on October 20, 2008, 10:48:18 AMTry the PC Engine Software Bible. Sunteam Paul's reviews are honest and fair, though not every game has been fully reviewed yet.I've checked this one out. I like the new interface, but does anyone have any other sites they like to frequent.
Quote from: JoshTurboTrollX-16 on October 14, 2008, 10:56:25 AMdrop off is the worst game ever made.For multiplayer goodness, I indulge in Bomberman '93, Dungeon Explorer, Motoroader, and Aeroblasters. I still think Double Dungeons and Battle Royale stink.
But Double Dungeons, Sonic Spike, and Battle Royal?? Those are all insanely fun multiplayer games!!
people that don't like those games must not have any friends..... or maybe they don't have a multitap and more controllers.
Quote from: shubibiman on August 09, 2008, 03:01:04 AMIt feels so good to live in the "Euro Zone" as for us, prices for japanese and US stuff have dropped a lotDon't get too comfortable, the dollar has been going up now pretty consistently. Petroleum prices have been dropping as a result of it.
Quote from: geise on July 13, 2008, 05:17:50 PMI'm taking a stroll down memory lane and playing Dungeon Explorer. I still love it! I love the sequel, but this game will always be one of my favorites.I don't enjoy Dungeon Explorer as much when I'm playing it solo. DE is infinitely better when you have the multitap going.
