@GTV reviews the Cosmic Fantasy 1-2 Switch collection by Edia, provides examples of the poor English editing/localization work. It's much worse for CF1. Rated "D" for disappointment, finding that TurboGrafx CF2 is better & while CF1's the real draw, Edia screwed it up...

Quote from: BigusSchmuck on 09/02/2012, 02:27 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.

Absolutely right.
I'd like in on this raffle.
I want in.

I'm a glutton for punishment, let me have it!
Quote from: gameofyou on 08/21/2012, 09:46 PMPaisa49, I usually pull the card out by grabbing the USB connector from the top & bottom.
Great, thanks again.

Quote from: esadajr on 08/20/2012, 12:07 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.
I'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?
I want, put me in, coach!
I just ordered one as well. My Neo Flash Cart kicked the bucket.

Great fix, I have an AC adapter too that has the same issue.
Anyone aware if there are going to be any more ports of games for the virtual console? I'd love to see some more imports make it over here.
Glad to have it back, as it was one of my favorites to frequent.
Is this the same Nintega that got everyone's panties in a bunch last time?
So, after much deliberation, I decided to purchase the Samsung BD-P2550:


The particular model I picked up, P2550, not only streams Netflix, but it also streams Pandora radio. The regular P2500 only streams Netflix and is the same price. I wound up picking this player up at an "open box" price, which saved me a nice chunk of change. Like Nat's Sony Blue Ray Player, I can plug my player into an ethernet slot to get firmware updates sent directly to the player. After really thinking about it, I don't think I would have gotten much use out of a PS3. I mostly stick to my old school systems and watch a ton of movies, so I think this purchase makes more sense.

Now, I'm just waiting for my home theater system to come in the mail.
Quote from: MotherGunner on 01/02/2009, 01:51 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.

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.
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.
I went ahead and laid down the duckets for the advantage stick, so I can use it along with my turbo one. When I receive it, I'll let you all know how well it works.
Overall, everyone seems very satisfied with their investment in their PS3. Now, since I primarily want to use it as a blueray player, I'm thinking of getting a refurbished 40 gb, as that seems to be the most cost-effective route.
I'm thinking of upgrading my home theater system to really take advantage of high definition. I'm debating whether I should purchase a PS 3 or I should just get a blueray player. I know the PS 3 really doesn't have that many games for it yet, and I also like the fact that I can get a Roku Netflix box to stream movies in HD. How do those of you with a PS 3 feel about it as an investment?

That advantage stick is pretty neat.
Quote from: guest on 12/21/2008, 05:12 PMSome were just mediocre (Veigues Tactical Gladiator), but they're still fun to play.
I actually loved Veigues. If you want to talk mediocre, I submitt JJ and Jeff or China Warrior.  :D
Quote from: guyjin on 12/12/2008, 11:50 PMI dunno about you guys, but I've started a CRT hoard already.
Around what year did new CRT tv's cease being produced?

Also, could anyone on here provide a resource that shows a modded TG-16 with the different styles of video outputs on a high def TV? I wouldn't mind changing from RF to something else if the difference looks that much better.
Quote from: PC-ENGINE HELL on 12/06/2008, 03:44 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.)?
I recently got an LG LCD TV, and I've hooked both my TG-16 and Sega Saturn up to it via a couple of RF switches. I've learned that these systems look terrible if the TV is kept in 16:9 ratio, so whenever I've played so far I've changed to 4:3. When I play my Saturn, and turn it off, the TV looks like it's in black and white. Only after I switch channels does the color come back. Could the Saturn or TG-16 have any adverse effect on the TV?
Quote from: mobiusclimber on 11/18/2008, 02:06 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.

I played Tatsujin, and the game fustrated the living crap out of me. In my experience, it has to be one of the toughest shooters out there.

Quote from: Golgo13 on 10/30/2008, 07:58 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 ^_^

I use my cart on a US TG-16, and I've had no compatibility issues. Everything works fine.
Pardon my ignorance, but are Duo controllers so rare that it would merit hacking a less expensive nintendo pad worth the trouble?
Quote from: Duo_R on 10/29/2008, 09:36 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.  =D>
Quote from: Duo_R on 10/29/2008, 12:28 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.
They're painfully slow at replacing defective products. I now have a fully-functioning cart, but I had to wait nearly 6 months to get the replacement. It works amazingly well so far on my CD-less American TG-16, and I'm glad I invested in this product.
Wow, there's a lot of good information in there.
Quote from: guest on 10/20/2008, 10:48 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.
Ah, this site is always good for a little drama every now and then.  =D>
Much to my dismay, one of my favorite sites, The Videogame Den, has been down for quite a while. I don't think it'll be functional for some time. So, are there any other sites that provide even-handed, unbiased reviews for the multitude of PC Engine games that are out there? I'd like to see where everyone on here goes for good gaming reviews.

Quote from: JoshTurboTrollX-16 on 10/14/2008, 10:56 AMdrop off is the worst game ever made.

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.
For multiplayer goodness, I indulge in Bomberman '93, Dungeon Explorer, Motoroader, and Aeroblasters. I still think Double Dungeons and Battle Royale stink.  :-#
Double Dungeon, Battle Royale, and TV Sports Football are absolutely horrendous. I never play those games, even though they are part of my collection.
For non-techie rejects, such as myself, what does this mod accomplish exactly?
Quote from: shubibiman on 08/09/2008, 03:01 AMIt feels so good to live in the "Euro Zone" as for us, prices for japanese and US stuff have dropped a lot  :dance:
Don't get too comfortable, the dollar has been going up now pretty consistently. Petroleum prices have been dropping as a result of it.

Welcome to the asylum.
I can vouch for Quoth being a very quick shipper, if anyone is on the fence about buying from him.
Quote from: geise on 07/13/2008, 05:17 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.
PM sent, Quoth.
Just reaffirms the old adage, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is."
