This is Shaun's Virtual Pinball Cabinet Build!

Hahaha, my wife will hate me for this, but I love pinball and in desperate need of friends. "Instead of paying into our children's education, you bought a virtual pinball cabinet", she said and "I'm very close to leaving you", she said. Hahaha!

Anyway, what are your favorites? Also, check out my Youtube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4q7WSUonMzc, haha!

One guy whose birthday should be celebrated in the pinball community is Tim Kitzrow. I don't think his birthday is public knowledge, though. I'd say we could celebrate it on the anniversary of the NBA Jam release date, but arcade games don't have release dates.

It had shit sound. The 5200 had a lot of problems but it was a good idea to synergize with their 8 bit line. 7800 was a step backwards in some ways and of course it came out way too late.

Any of you guys thinking of selling gear? I have an old collection of N64 games and I feel that console aged pretty badly. Not imagining I will miss it, except maybe Mario 64 at times.

Anything you've regretted selling?

I lost my childhood genesis collection at some point after getting an n64, memory is foggy. Gave away my n64 collection to my little brother when i was like 14, and have no idea what became of it. I still have my gamecube and wii, but I sold a lot of great gc games about 10 years ago when i was in a tough spot, i regret all of these decisions. The wii turned into a emulation powerhouse though, and ive got all my gc games on it again. As for the gc itself, i dont really know what ill do with it, guess I'll just hang onto it a while. Also have a ps3 im gonna try and mod one of these days and get into ps1/2 library
Post your N64 collection OP, maybe some people here would be interested in buying
Literally all 3d games from 5th gen aged badly. N64 is blurry and runs at 20fps, and PS1 looks muddy , can't render open spaces well and has massive texture warping. Not to mention tank controls are cancer.
Use a CRT to display SD games and they will look less blurry/muddy.
As for 20fps, as long as the framerate is consistent and the controls good, there's no issue with that.

Yeah, don't do this. That's retarded. Check Craigslist and the classifieds and make offers if the price is too high, there's a good chance they'll accept it since they're unlikely to get any other offers in most cities.

I'll give it a try with 240p Test Suite on the Wii. Thanks.

How come this game wasn't ported to the N64 like we were promised? Instead we got KI Gold, a kind of watered down version of KI2, which is good, but not better than the original. After the success of the port to the SNES you would think they would release a faithful arcade port on the N64. It could have handled a straight 100% port, right?

oh you're one of those, it's close enough that you'd never know.
What do you mean? Be more precise.
Most of the time, the N64's d-pad will feel stiff, that's because most people don't use the N64 d-pad at all unless they play games that uses it.
Give it some use and it'll feel very, very similar to the SNES d-pad. If you get a brand-new SNES pad, the d-pad will also feel stiff.
Other than that, I don't know how it would feel different.
>t's close enough that you'd never know.

Yeah, you're a fucking clown shoe and your opinion has been discarded.

That same shit is why Zelda and Sonic have such fucked up fandoms that fight all the time. Trying to please everyone while still doing new things never works out.

Where do you find them? Preferably for free. Also is there a specific type I should be looking for that'll look the best? Planning on hooking my N64 and SNES up to one.

I've found some behind an electrical retailer that takes them for e waste, i even pulled one out of a big metal bin and I use to this day but in my area they are getting harder to find and the last one i saw had some white night cut the cord. Also only the desperately poor have kept crts for so long so i wouldn't expect them to be as good as the ones i used to see on the side of the road.

This guy gets it
If you live in America Craigslist free section has hundreds of them in my area. If you live in a small town put a wanted ad out there. Offer to come pick it up and haul it away.

Don't pay for one, they aren't worth any amount of money anymore.
I find rear projection TV's on the side of the road all the time since no one wants them and they weigh a ton, but but regular CRTs are pretty rare where I live. Found a very old VGA monitor once but it was extremely poor condition, had probably been kept in a shed or something.
By this logic you shouldn't play games on consoles with RGB mods or on PVMs.

Sorry, I meant an editor as in the role held by a person. It would be a shame to do all that work only to end up with unnecessary typos and engrish.
If you have not seen the work done by the other team yet, check them out. They have gone to the length of decompiling the game and recompiling with an english script, and are about 40% done. You might get some ideas.

Been doing some Countess running in the last few days. No major jackpots or anything (as one would expect), but nonetheless some pretty decent drops.
Pic related, got a quite good Gheed's fortune drop yesterday! Perfect +MF roll, almost perfect reduced vendor prices, but poor extra gold modifier.
Other than that, aColdkill, Wall of the Eyeless, a couple of Iron Jang Bongs. Nothing that special, or things I didn't have already.

Note: not all runes in pic related are from these last couple of days' runs; it's that's that character's "cubing-up stash screen" and I didn't realize to screenshot the recent drops before dropping them in. Notable recent Countess drops are that Mal, Um, Pul, Fal, and a couple of Kos.

Well, at least it isn't shovelware.
Okay, it's a bit more fun on higher difficulties, but there's still very little to the game. Plays like a variant of Hogan's Alley Game B without the hostages that made that game unique. I can see they tried making something involving, with all the ammo conservation/guns as lives/flag protection stuff, but at the end of the day it's mostly about holding right and shooting the targets that appear, then holding left and shooting the targets that appear. Potentially stopping to aim better on higher difficulties where you need to hit quick.

What kind of goal should I even set myself for this?

The Socket 775 Pentium 4 is in my opinion the best option for a Windows 98 machine that is 'legacy free' for the lack of a better word. You won't have to worry about old HDDs or PSUs in your build and most modern coolers still support socket 775. If you get a later revision Cedar Mill, you're looking at only 65W of heat. It is cheap and gets the job done.

Low soldering skills and I do not want to fucked my only working slocket.
It's worth remembering that the earliest P4s are actually barely able to match the latest P3s in performance. Just something to keep in mind when component shopping.

I'm pretty sure you are talking about socketA/462 Athlon family.
