What better way to declare your involuntary celibacy then displaying that abomination in your bedroom/basement entry.

Just what you need when you're busy doing something close to nothing, but different from the day before.

Emulation makes baby Jesus cry. I need to play my games with perfect timing, the way the gods of video gaming intended.

What is your opinion of consoles such as the Retron 3?

I am seriously tempted by the console, due to its MMC5 support; it is one of the few Famiclones that plays Castlevania 3. Despite my temptation, I actually have no place to put it.

He paid $50 for a Pi? He got ripped off. Got mine on the 26th of last month from Newark.com for $25.

Good, I'm tired of my pile of crunchy tissue papers. I'll try your idea.

Dunno. I googled it, but I couldn't find much about the specs. Is it using clones of original hardware, or is it some cheap-o ARM system with software emulation?

BSNES

For those willing to use their Core i7 for its highest purpose: playing cycle-perfect emulated 8- and 16-bit video games.

The Retron 3 uses hardware clones of the NES, SNES and Sega Genesis/Mega Drive consoles. The NES hardware in the most recent revision of the console, as I stated, is a much more advanced NOAC than those of many other Famiclones and thus supports even MMC5-based games.

The only major drawbacks of which I am aware are the poor quality of the supplied controllers (however original console controllers for all three consoles are supported) and that NES video cannot be output via S-Video.

dookdookdook: fallingcow: BSNES

At this time, bsnes has no known bugs,
...
geometry.cfg
Note that in rare circumstances, this file can get corrupted. If you find yourself unable to see certain windows, you can delete this file and re-run bsnes afterward.

To provide fair consideration: the "no bugs" claim is meant to relate to emulation compatibility. Corruption of a configuration file, while a "bug", is not an error in the emulation itself.

Note that I have never personally used BSNES, so I am unable to comment upon its actual performance. I have been using Snes9x GX for my Super Nintendo Entertainment System emulation needs.

The existence of such things makes me wonder why a company like capcom doesn't sell a retro system with all it's games built in.

I would buy it.

In that case it's not emulation at all so it's probably damn accurate.

I have a very similar retro-console; the Atari Flashback 2. It's a clone of Atari 2600 hardware bundled with copies of the original ROMs of various games. Upside is you can play original carts (some soldering required) and use original joysticks. Downside is that it doesn't work with certain modern TV sets.

Then you got the Model A (no network, one USB, less powerful). The new Model B (HDMI, Network, two USB, 800Mhz processor) is out, and after tax, it's about $50.

Here's the Model B at Newark.com

The processors are the same on both models. The model B is as much a gutless wonder reliant on it's GPU to do anything useful as the model A is.

/I say that as someone who owns a Model B Pi.

I have an NES emulator running on my home arcade. I use a Logitech (F310 if you are interested) controller with it works great. You can also use an authentic NES controller if you buy an adaptor.

And I don't have a basement and I had sex with my wife yesterday. TYVM.

The best machine to emulate the NES on is the Wii. True 240p TV output, and you can use adapters for original NES or SNES controllers.

They sound much better with wooden volume knobs.
