GameSack decided to cover every PC Engine CD game that supports/relies on the Arcade Card enhancement memory, including games where it's uncertain/unadvertised like Emerald Dragon which doesn't indicate in any way there are benefits.

I always wanted one for my Turbo Duo given the used/cheap Strider ACD that I bought for $15 but I never got around to it. Plus, I'd have to also buy a region adapter to make it work on a US Duo! So it wouldn't be until the Magic Engine emulator when I finally got to play that ACD port to see just how awful it was!

I was also interested in Fatal Fury Special (not to mention SFII for my 6-button pad), Sapphire, a SuperGrafx itself, but gaming habits were dying off as I started my university studies, so didn't happen. But yeah, eventually when I discovered the world of emulation in late 2001-02, I got to download/play some of the missed opportunities from back when real hardware was the only game in town!

I do find the difference between the TG16/TGCD and some other systems to be less muted colors than many other systems but..what do I know?
Glad you appreciate it!

I did a lot of grunt work to bring it into the modern era:
1) Built custom post buttons to speed up the process of adding "width=49%" dynamic image resizing for the 2 side-by-side image shots that awack did, I did EVERY post here!
2) awack used Photobucket which watermarks their shared images, but I made a special script to counter that, download/show a clean image AND then I returned for another idea to simply cache ALL Photobucket images shared on PCEFX so they're never lost! Over 11,000 Photobucket images are now permanently hosted here https://www.pcengine-fx.com/images/cache/ and will never be lost or watermarked now!

It's looking a lot better and the new theme already handles mobile adjustments for viewing on a phone. Still, this forum software is outdated, but I'm here, paid for the web space for 10 years, might as well research improvements to carry PCEFX legacy on as best I can.

Introducing Duo.
The Higher Energy Analogue System.

You've always known what to expect from a video game system. Until now. Duo is an all-in-one reimagining of perhaps the most underappreciated video game systems of all time. Analogue Duo is compatible with nearly every NEC system and game format ever made. TurboGrafx-16. PC Engine. SuperGrafx. TurboGrafx CD. PC Engine CD-ROMĀ². Super Arcade CD-ROMĀ². 1080p. Zero lag. Bluetooth. 2.4g. Because the last thing a video game system should be is predictable.
Completely engineered in FPGA.
Analogue OS.7

I totally accept your suggestion! Thanks for hooking me up with some pow pow blah blame!..lol.

The manual is pretty darn good shape. I really hope it's better than yours.

Hit me up on messenger here or ashevent on instagram and we can swap mailing addresses.



Quote from: kattare on May 26, 2023, 01:53:07 PMThanks for getting back to me!

Sadly I don't have anything on your wish list.

I'd suggest maybe Gunboat + Bloody Wolf + Super Star Soldier for the trade if you don't have any of those?  Decent blend of "blow stuff up".  :)

If that sounds good we can swap addresses via PM.

Cheers

Hey bud, the other guy backed out so i'm good to go. I don't have any of those so Bloody Wolf would be great or BW and anything else you think is fun you'de wanna toss my way..lol

Or I just copied and pasted the games from other systems im looking for if you have a different double/doubles you wanna purge. The other guy said they were all too "high end" for him but some are cheaper than your extra's you offered *insert facepalm emoji..lol.

I have no idea what any are worth on your list or mine, but whatever you think if fair. I'm good with.

and no worries on full disclosure, you do you!

oh wow! I got hit up from my TG16 facebook group first but the guy hasn't gotten back to me in a few days. let me double check to see if he changed his mind. If so, I promise there's something/s in there I'd like and dont have just by the quick glance.

Hey Ashevent - what are you after?  I have a few I've been meaning to list on ebay for a while so I can fund other purchases.

Hueys:

China Warrior (CIC)
King of Casino (CIC)
Victory Run (CIC)
Timeball (CIC)
Double Dungeons (CIC)
Klax (CIC)
Gunboat (CIC)
Bloody Wolf (CIC)
Deep Blue (CIC)
Raiden (CIC)
Super Star Soldier (CIC)

CDs:

Meteor Blaster DX (sealed, new, potentially valuable now that BT Garner has passed away and the Mindrec shopping cart has been down?)
Lords of the Rising Sun (CIC)
Sherlock Holmes II (sealed, new)
J.B. Harold Murder Club (CIC)
The Addams Family (CIC)
Ys I & II (CIC - no map)
Ys III (CIC)
Vasteel (Game + Manual in generic case - no map)

Full transparency - I already have super air zonk - if we do a trade my plan is to compare the condition of your manual and mine (mine's not in great shape) and (eventually) resell the lesser quality one.

Cheers
