Re: Unused Racing/Rally Wheel Expansion Port

Could it be the same as those used on 3rd party wheels? I have an InterAct Concept 4 Racing Wheel and it has pedals. They connect through a 6-pin mini DIN though.

Re: SHENMUE III CONFIRMED

I ended up taking the refund. After telling us we could get a refund or choose to wait a year for a Steam key, they announced that that might not even happen. So they basically gave us a barely tolerable option as an apology, waited weeks for the anger to settle down, and then said basically "psyche...

Re: DC SD Card Reader - what can it do

You can back up/dump GD-ROMs with it (use jj1odm SD Ripper, not the ripper included with Dreamshell, it's unreliable) Backup all your VMU saves easily (Dreamshell) Load homebrew apps with Dreamshell. You can load some official games off of it, but for most games the transfer is too slow and it plays...

Re: Shenmue emulated

It was pretty awful in the original Dreamcast game to be honest haha

Keep in mind it wasn't really meant to be the same kind of camera control as in modern games. It was more of a "stop and look at your surroundings" kind of thing.

Re: Are you getting a Genesis Mini?

Once Lik-Sang went under however long ago, nothing came to fill the void. There's some guy in Venezuela who has a large stock of them, and he posts them on eBay individually for high prices (around $100 iirc). No idea where he got them from, perhaps he bought all of them up from some Chinese wareho...

Re: Are you getting a Genesis Mini?

Cosmetic stuff interests me. I spent the past couple years in the machine trades studying form and tight tolerances. I've had this want to make injection mold tooling for a Dreamcast shell because I know a place where I could take it and have cases molded in a wide variety of colors (inc. skeleton ...

Re: Are you getting a Genesis Mini?

"Collector's syndrome" seems to be a common thing for anyone that goes in deep enough. The fun of collecting topples the fun of playing games. I knew a few old vets from AG who ended up reaching that same place. Compared to most, the direction you took turned out to be a vastly superior way to spen...

Re: Are you getting a Genesis Mini?

Sometime in the earlier part of this decade, I hit a wall with collecting. Idk if you remember when I used to hang out in the IRC a lot 10 years ago and I'd go on about how I lost around 95% of my collection in a fire. After that, I decided to rebuild. By 2012, I had a mountain of consoles and game...

Re: Are you getting a Genesis Mini?

Like you said, I respect the quality that they're putting into it. At least the games run pretty damn well for an emulator via HDMI. And it ...

Re: Are you getting a Genesis Mini?

I think these are really good deals for casual gamers, and it's cool that the companies are finally caring enough to put work into making quality throwback consoles, but... I don't have a use for these things as a more serious gamer, and I don't see why serious gamers bother to collect them, so...

Re: SHENMUE III CONFIRMED

Agreed. As for Shenmue III, for those not paying attention, they offered some options to PC backers: 1. You can switch to PS4 2. You can get it on Epic Games at launch and when it comes out on Steam a year later, you'll have it there too 3. You can get a refund They have confirmed that physical PC c...

Re: SHENMUE III CONFIRMED

Well, this is infuriating, now after 4 years of waiting for a game we crowdfunded, after knowing it would be on Steam all that time, they've removed the game from Steam and made it an Epic Games Store exclusive. Basically, after crowdfunding a game that was thought maybe not possible, they screwed o...
