    I promised myself not to buy anything else...

    But then Steve Bailey went and put a copy of Toaplan Arcade Garage Flying Shark/Fire Shark for the PS4 up for sale...

    Bugger.

    I already own their port of Battle Garegga and it's amazing

    So, I'll pardon myself just this one time...

    ace ,i've been collection 20+ years and never managed my grail line up 1 :P :(



  • Registered Users Posts: 5,627 ✭✭✭ Jack burton


    Same here haha.

    Im pretty close though. Another 2-3 cabs I've always wanted and I'll be there.

    Fat chance of getting any cabs these days for a bargain though

    I was fairly lucky to start collecting when I did back then towards the end of college and got a couple of grail games when they were a bit cheaper 5 years ago at a time in my life where I could instead of buying a car or what most people seem to do, eventhough some people were saying they had gone too expensive back then, got the odd bargain or two along the way too but mostly bought projects and always fancied a challenge. But this for sure was no bargain lol, it was about the same price as a nice working stand up Outrun in the UK but that still is mental money lol, sorta one last piece to probably finish the collection but I suppose there'll always be one more 'dream cab'

    Got an 8bitdo NES retro receiver in the post today, connects up nicely with my fancy new RGB Famicom Top loader!

    Paired it with a NES30 that I bought years and years ago when they first came out and haven't used at all really. So it's a wireless NES gaming experience that's literally years in the making!

    Was playing MegaMan 2 wirelessly with it, no noticable lag at all.

    Steam Deck arrived this morning, its a bit of a beast. Can't wait to get Atari 2600 emulation installed on it

    Just this morning a delivery from Steve Bailey arrived, my copy of Sky Shark/Flying Shark for the PS4.

    This contains two excellent ports of the original arcade games, courtesy of M2 and their ShotTriggers series, as well as the Megadrive and NES ports, not to mention an extra game, Wardner, in both its arcade and FDS incarnations.



  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 47,389 CMod ✭✭✭✭ Retr0gamer


    I heard Wardner is a bit of a classic, especially the MD version. Reviewed very highly in the UK mags.



  • Registered Users Posts: 31,884 ✭✭✭✭ o1s1n


    Never heard of Wardner at all. Getting that weird Mandela effect now where I can't figure out how a Toaplan US/JP Medgadrive exclusive has passed me by without ever hearing about it. 😁

    I see it's pricey but not mega pricey, might see if I can hunt that down.



  • Registered Users Posts: 363 ✭✭ dav09


    No spins for Olly then when I get it up and running eventually! (probably in about 3 years time with my track record lol)

    Cheers though, one would def fit well in your Outrun collection if I ever have to move it on down the line!

    The ShotTrigger series on PS4/Switch seem to be released for normal monies but then creep up.

    Ketsui Deathtiny is up around €100 now, on PS4.

    I'm hoping Steve has a few over the next while, and I will pick them up.

    Two so far!

    The Tiger Heli one also looks pretty great

    Ha, randomly picked up Wardner boxed JP version in The RAGE a good few years ago because the box art was cool. Was only around 15-20 quid IIRC. Still haven’t played it 😅



  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Computer Games Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 34,002 CMod ✭✭✭✭ CiDeRmAn


    Apparently, M2 have said they are going to include Wardner in every Toaplan collection they produce, so they must be a fan!



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,810 ✭✭✭ Colonel Panic


    I have that exact model. Survived years on the bottom of my parent’s wardrobe and in the utility room of my apartment until i moved somewhere with room to have it set up.

    I love that TV.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,328 ✭✭✭ Inviere


    Very nice TV, nice get. After my recent experience testing the old family Ferguson TV that was stored in the outside but dry shed, I'm going to buy a CO2 fire extinguisher for when the games room is ready for use. Just in case....

    Fair play to committing to one, I always say it but those black 90s era Trinitrons still look amazing in a contemporary setup. They're a timeless clean design.



  • Registered Users Posts: 254 ✭✭ Mucashinto


    (God I was excited last night..😬)

    Yeah, it seems way better than I could have hoped for, thought I'd be buying multiple hold overs before finding a nice one. It has 2 SCARTs but only 1 has RGB so I'm guessing you never really use it?

    Up to yesterday I thought PAL Tvs would be a minefield because you hear so much about 50hz etc but saw a post that (paraphrasing) said

    "European Tvs aren't 50hz, euro Tvs are PAL and PAL is 50hz. If the Euro Tv has SCART that means it will play NTSC and it will play it however it's meant."

    Is that really all there is to it? I thought they'd be clocked at 50hz internally tbh.

    Daemonbite adapter arrived this morning as well. No controllers yet and cable went on backorder (apparently you need a special VGA to SCART for the MiSTer to step down voltage on one of the pins?). It's a neat little thing but can be DIY'd obviously if you have the skills.




  • Registered Users Posts: 1,810 ✭✭✭ Colonel Panic


    The second SCART supports S-Video if you have an adapter. I used to have my NTSC GameCube hooked up to it.

    The TV’s tuner is 50Hz only, but it suppers NTSC colour encoding at 60Hz via all other inputs. The colour encoding only matters for composite and S-Video anyway.



  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Computer Games Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 34,002 CMod ✭✭✭✭ CiDeRmAn


    The Trinitron is, as said by others, a cracking TV and the black cased 4:3 models from that era are only bettered really by the PVM/BVM broadcast monitors, and they are savage money.

    I have my 29" Trini since it was bought new, still amazing



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,328 ✭✭✭ Inviere


    Lovely, I really need to show the msx more love. One thing though, are they harvesting chips from working machines to make these?



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,588 ✭✭✭ BGOllie


    no z80 cpu are still available , as are YM 3-8910 sound chips and VDP ICs . so no real hardware is harmed in the process of making these :)



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,620 ✭✭✭ The Last Bandit


    Another fine TF product :) Seen it on his channel recently alright, looks like a nice project to do in-between all the Amiga stuff

    Gimme a shout if you find anything you don't want and maybe we can trade a few.


    I'm always after more 80s and 90s action and cheesefest movies
