  1. I might be wrong but I'm pretty sure that 240p is outside of the HDMI specs so you'd need a convertor of some sort to be able to transmit the signal. Either one of these console->HDMI dongles/cables or a Framemeister/OSSC.
  2. I'm all for getting rid of cables but if each dongle needs to be powered then aren't you just swapping one cable for another?
  3. Sell it to me at a very, very slightly higher price than cost.
  4. That's okay though cos we got our blue passports. Cor blimey. Oh and of course, the NHS are getting their extra £350m a week to boot! </sarcasm>
  5. I've been reading this for the past few days and I'm really pleased with the quality of it from both a design point of view and from a readability/interest point of view. It's quick and easy to pick up, read about a particular arcade game and then either put it down again OR go and play the conversions on a speccy or C64. I've discovered a love for Gorf and have been playing that on the Colecovision for a couple of days now. Excellent book - does what it sets out to do perfectly.
  6. Thanks for mentioning Castlevania Doom. I went down the rabbit hole a little and I'm really impressed with how it looks: I think that I'll give that a go soon. However, that doesn't really help you get Hocus Pocus Doom going. Maybe we can help you through the process of setting it up?
  7. That's just fine as it is Jerry. Thanks for confirming.
  8. I ordered a while back (because of this thread) from the website but I've never been asked what name I'd like to have printed. Will you just use the name on the payment details of the order? Do I need to do anything basically?
  9. I'll always remember being at the coast one summertime (Cromer) and being allowed into the onsite arcade. It was an Aladdin's cave for me and I can't describe how incredible and overwhelming all the sounds and images were to a young 10 year old. I remember the speech of Gauntlet as the most amazing audio from the arcade but visually it had to be this: I was new to arcades at the time and had only seen what a C64 or a Spectrum could do (and these were the early games for those systems too). So seeing fully filled 3D polygons absolutely blew my mind. I
  10. Ordered straight away. Love the previous two books in the series.
  11. How do you go about getting a retail version of retroarch though? That's the bit that confuses me. And then, even if you can get it installed, how do you go about getting your ROMs onto the machine for retroarch to play? (I understand how it all works in developer mode - it's just the retail version I'm unsure of).
  12. I hope so too. I'd love to see Old Nerd become a regular here in the retro forum as long as there's a mixture of proper posts along with his youtube links.
  13. I'm sorry if this comes across as grumpy but isn't this behaviour a bit spammy? I'm sure the Old Nerd makes great YouTube videos (I might check them out at some point) but there's nothing here more than some links to the videos. No engaging in the forum with interesting comments or posts, just direct links to the videos. That feels a bit spammy to me and in the past I've seen people warned and even banned for such behaviour. Perhaps you should talk more about your videos and get involved in the community here at rllmuk before just creating empty posts? May
  14. It is, but it's a clever bit of kit that auto switches and has a cool 'knight rider' effect as it scans through the 16 inputs. I had some money to spare one month and wanted the easiest way of switching between nearly 20 retro consoles and computers.
  15. I used to daisy chain several of these Argos ones together (link here) with no discernible video quality drop. However, when I got to the point where I had so many daisy chained up I upgraded to this beast: https://lotharek.pl/productdetail.php?id=207. It has 16 inputs and 2 outputs which is perfect for my CRT and my lovely big screen Panasonic plasma at the same time. Both are perfect based on your needs and budget.
