anyway, your best bet would probalby be to buy a set of headphones or something and dismantle them and solder them in where the other speaker's were... Why would he do that? It already has a headphone jack. He can plug in a set of headphones, and if they work fine, but the speaker is still quiet, t...

10 ohms works. Not everything might work properly though (lots of peripherials, maybe ssome VMU screens might be a bit dimmer). Like I said, I have a DC with a 10 ohm resistor in it to replace the f1 and it works fine. a lot of other people have done the same thing, so there isn't anything to worry...

Since the 32x's SH2 uses the same instruction set as the Dreamcast's SH4 it'd be very possible I guess but still a lot of work for a very few not exactly good games. It's not that simple. If BlackAura's hardware rendering could be extended to cover most 32X rendering, and you could avoid properly e...

Just to do it, to do it my way, for the experience, etc. That sort of thing. But yeah, I agree that it doesn't aid the scene as much to duplicate work.

Yes, but for example, what a MIDI sounds like is dependent on the sample set. Long story short, it has been done on an emulator before (see also: Sega Smash Pack), and the results are mediocre at best.

Custom hardware = dead project. Take several engineering courses, and then think about tackling it.

I'd just dot he resistor and not even risk it. Some third party peripherals tend to use too much voltages, not all. I don't know about every brand. The resistor is hardly better than nothing at all. In fact, it may even produce minor incompatibilities with certain peripherals. The F1 is not a simpl...

The Saturn's volume level seems to be a bit less than most other consoles anyway, but it shouldn't be drastic. I just turn up my TV a couple of clicks. I use S-video for mine, produces a fantastic picture.

You can't overclock it enough to playback MP3s. You'd need to add specialized hardware, storage, write playback software, make it all fit, etc.

What? I was saying I was not being literal when I said they used random colors.

If you had really precise lab hardware you could find when it blows, yes. Or at least get close enough to get a suitable replacement.

You posted a link to Cyberdogs, the C-Dogs page is here . C-Dogs (aka Cyberdogs 2) was the sequel to Cyberdogs, and was awesome, better in almost every regard than the first (although I liked some of the weapons of the original more). C-Dogs came with a couple of single player campaigns, had support...

I had some memorex back in the day that were total trash. Blue ink. Worst CD-Rs I've ever used, even had several midrange PC drives that had trouble reading them.

Stock Xbox and PS2 with no software/hardware hacks do not do this. However, because it is easy (for anyone) to get a very large HD working on them in the first place, you've already eliminated much of the work right there. On top of that, the custom BIOS/bootloader/whatever software that tells it to...

Yeah, you're gonna have to tear the modem apart. miko: 2 seconds after following that link I found this: "Since this is a thermal device relying on heat generated by an overload condition, response time is inverse to the degree of overload."
