  3. My Next Project...

    Yes. I have the Unofficial Dreamcast lists for the USA, Europe and Japanese releases. I am up to letter "F" now and I already have 283 covers - all are 600x600 minimum. I am also doing all versions of the covers, including limited editions and budget covers. I'm kinda burned out a bit so I'm taking a break for a few weeks and working on my MAME arcade bezels which I have been releasing daily in the Artwork forum. I'll go back to doing the Dreamcast covers in a little while. And you're right - it is a kind of massive undertaking, but in the end it will be worth it - there are well over 1000 covers!

  6. MAME Video Snaps (Pack 5)

    excelentes videos!! saludos desde Perú
  7. I've uploaded a couple dozen rom hacks to the ftp server under a folder "BoxDrop Hack Requests". Is there anyone who would be willing and able to make videos for any of them?
  8. Last week
  9. Most Played Game

    Probably sports games and Battlefield 2. I usually don't finish adventures and RPGs, i try to collect everything from the beginning and then get bored before the end. I really have to set myself to enjoy the story instead of getting 100% completion...
  10. Retro-friends, do read this book

    There was also a documentary on NetFlix (i think, could be Youtube as well) which covered the Commodore story. I generally prefer reading over watching video, but with computers and consoles, i prefer video (as long as they show gameplay and old ads and stuff).
  11. Experienced the same, it will probably work for slow games where timing is not important, but even football (soccer) games are too fast (also hard wired). I did get better results with Steam In-Home streaming to the living room PC though. But even my Android tablet with remote desktop produced better results than the Steam Link...
  12. Hardest Beat'em'up ever?

    This was one of the hardest ones on my wallet, i think it cost me like 25 coins to finish it the first time. But i would vote for Battletoads as well. Technically not really a beat 'em up, but very hard indeed! Played it again recently on an emulator with save states, i was surprised how far i got when i was young without save states. All those old games are much harder indeed. The first few screens of Mega Man for example are harder than a lot of end-game levels of current games. Remorseless!
  13. Super Mario RPG 2, am I the only one?

    Square did make a Mario sports game for the 3DS. But a sequel to Mario RPG would be great indeed, revisiting it currently with my daughter on the SNES mini!
  14. I have found my new home! YAY! :-D

    Agreed, i don't know about the current state as i just got back into it, but i liked the fact that the developer is so active in his community. Love the devotion to making it a great experience.
  15. What is 3rd gen, Sandy or Ivy Bridge? For me it works quite well on 1080p with an i5-3570K (not overclocked). I do have some freezes, but still trying to find out if this is due to CPU/GPU limitations or something else.
  16. Upscaling to 1080p

    For me it depends on what i'm playing it on. When i play on my projector, bigger is better (and no gray bars), so i upscale and stretch to 16:9. On my PC monitor i usually use some smoothing shaders (especially for PSX, didn't age too well unfortunately), but for my cab i will try to make it look as authentic as possible. I guess it also depends on the game: for games like Final Fantasy the art is already beautiful within their original limitations, they tried to get the maximum out of the available assets. For something like Super Off Road, which i still like to play with friends, it's more playable with updated graphics.
  17. retro arch shaders

    Can shaders also add lag, provided that the CPU/GPU wouldn't be the bottleneck? For me the combination of LCD, emulator and shaders doesn't seem to do well in games where timing is important. Playing something like Super Mario World feels completely different on the original hardware with a CRT compared to with an emulator on Windows or even the SNES mini. I guess it's mostly the LCD, NSMBU plays almost exactly the same on CEMU as it does on the Wii U (never hooked that one up to a CRT though).
  18. Fuzzy Rename

    Great, thank you! Always fighting with this and ending up naming everything individually until i see it made some spelling errors when i bring up a front end. At least it shows you that something is not matching there, if there's not too much it can be done manually.
  19. EmuMovies Video Converter

    What format would give the smallest file size in, say, 1080p while working with most modern frontends (in particular LaunchBox, Hyperspin and Attract)?
  20. Would be nice if nVidia and AMD would incorporate this in their cards. Would be a selling point for me if it was only available on certain cards!
  21. VideoGain

    Thanks! That's why for music i always try to have as much relevant metadata in the titles, so you can place them back in the ID3 (i hate inconsistencies in titling and numbering). The less relevant data can then be populated by scrapers again.
  22. JoyToKey

    I wish they had something like a profile database where it chooses the right settings based on the game. Quite a hassle with old dos games if you have a lot: one uses space to shoot, the other X etc.
  23. Video Discussion: Mario Kart 8 Emulated onto PC

    For me it works with an Ivy Bridge i5 and a Radeon 7950 (in FullHD though). I do get freezes now and then, wonder if it's because of my system being not fast enough or something else as it seems to happen randomly.
  24. Bartop Arcade Mark 1

    Is there a way to still see the pic? I'm looking for some additional inspiration, though i know Google is my friend....
  25. My salutations

    A few years ago i built a bed in the barn that was extremely heavy... It turned out it was too big to get up the stairs and of course i glued everything instead of just screws. We had to get it into my room through the roof.
  26. My salutations

  27. My arcade table

    Looks great, what's the idea behind this? To play in front of a projector screen or something?
