Sony just announced the “PlayStation Classic” emulation console, that looks just like the original, but 45% smaller. Gee, I wonder where they got that idea from. And the inspiration for the name? Hmm…they must still be sore about getting stiffed over the CDi… The console will be releasing December 3rd for $100 and will come […]
Here’s this week’s roundup! Audio-only: http://retrorgb.com/podcast/?name=2018-09-19_115.mp3
Dochartaigh recently posted an excellent tutorial that describes how to find and use the proper TVOne boxes for use in downscaling to 240p: https://shmups.system11.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=63226 “Downscaling” is something that’s often misunderstood and in my opinion a very good way to preserve a “classic” or “arcade” feel on newer games.

After that, just download the files John posted and follow his instructions: https://shmups.system11.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=63212 Personally, I think it looks awesome and is a great […]
hugo19941994 on the Shmups forums has just posted what I believe is the first English review of the new 2.4GHz wireless kit for Sega Saturn controllers: https://shmups.system11.org/viewtopic.php?p=1333979#p1333979 This kit replaces the innards of your stock Sega Saturn controller with it’s own wireless kit and connects to a dongle that plugs into the cartridge port on […]
Unseen just published a firmware update for all GCVideo devices (analog, digital, dual, Wii, etc) that addresses a chroma bug: https://github.com/ikorb/gcvideo/releases From what I gathered, the bug happens when GCVideo converts from the GC’s native signal format of YCbCr to RGB. Component video output was unaffected. Extrems demonstrated this via screenshots on his page: https://www.gc-forever.com/wiki/index.php?title=Game_Boy_Interface/High-Fidelity_Edition#Video_quality Unfortunately, […]
