Re: Fake Dendy prototype Game Grumps prank?

"All publicity is good publicity" they say. I also think it's stupid but I guess it's effective for sales. Getting people to talk about it is a good way to spread it. Hey, does anyone have any dump of that thing or is it fake as well?? If this is fake then at least they programmed that cartridge in ...

Re: Multi region NES cartridges?

I guess if it's to be used with the OSSC it doesn't matter much since it needs to be converted from YUV at some point anyway, whether it's done by this device or the OSSC. But otherwise I personally think RGB output sounds more useful in general, simply because RGB is more common on TVs than compone...

Re: Multi region NES cartridges?

That's kind of what I thought. Thanks for explaining. I think I finally understood what Charles MacDonald meant by using a flipflop to offset the entire frame. It's offset by one scanline every second frame.

Re: Multi region NES cartridges?

Yeah the Kooryu, it's supposed to convert composite or S-video to YPbPr. Might be more useful if it could convert to RGB as well, so it could be used on older TVs to convert NTSC/PAL color encoding. Also setting bit 2 applies some kind of artifact correction to the picture, and that also only affect...

Re: What is too politically toxic?

I see, that sounds similar to the route that Swedish and Danish took while Norwegian stayed the same as German. Started using the neuter gender for things that are not persons but still gramatically masculine or feminine. Only problem that the fourth gender uter is also doing that (but for genderles...

Re: New Super Mario Land

Maybe it was deliberate but it's still a bit off. Super Mario Land was my first game for Game Boy (together with Tetris) and I don't agree that it doesn't play very well. It is one of the best platform games on the system IMHO, in class with SMB for NES although it has a very different feel. Mario's...

Re: Multi region NES cartridges?

I think he's clear on that modding the cart for this purpose isn't possible. BTW it's confirmed that the PC-Engine's greyscale flag (and probably the artifact correction flag) doesn't affect the analogue RGB video output (the game Shapeshifter uses the flag when pausing). However the UperGrafx is mo...

Re: What is too politically toxic?

Yes, but the thing is some people felt it was directed at them, and fascist and nazi are often used to anger people, so one could argue that such words should be used with care even if you think they make sense in the context. Now of course two wrongs don't make a right. I may have to post again tom...

Re: What is too politically toxic?

Well then sorry for being unfair. Calling the opponent in a discussion fascist or nazi is common in heated discussions that have gotten out of hand, and is obviously also not something that has any place in a healthy discussion. The attack on Bregalad was personal. You might not think those where se...

@naI Got what right with what? That is not what I've been saying in case that is what you are implying. @toggle switch Well people sure are working hard in trying to do exactly that, trying to shame their opponent into submission among other things. While at the same time accusing their opponent for...

Re: What is too politically toxic?

I suggest you to read that again. I don't see the point in discussing something by putting words in the mouth on people than argue against them. Especially not on a forum where the exact quotes can easily be looked up. He said two things about pollitically toxic and both was pretty much the same. Th...

Re: What is too politically toxic?

I just meant that Nocash said something like "People with opinion A is fine as long as they don't force it on other people and respect opinion B". Then Bregalad basically pointed out: "That goes for people of opinion B as well". Then people object to that. So one opinion is better than the other and...

Re: Questions regarding some European NES releases

1. Mattel was initially distributing the NES in the UK, but Nintendo was disappointed in their sales and established their own UK section and took over the distribution. For that reason, earlier UK version of games are Mattel branded. I'm not very knowledgeable in PAL-A so I don't know if they are w...

Re: R.O.B. Firmware

I got the Famicom version of ROB (just called Robot) CIB quite cheap, but the shades wasn't included. He works alright without them even with the light on though. I'd like to get them one day to complete my set. There's no mention of them in the manual as far as I can remember so it's possible they ...
