    CD32 isnt grave yard its was just meant to be a console ver of the more popular Amiga 1200 u can get a sx-32 or sx-1 turn a cd32 back into a amiga same as CDTV and amiga is very much alive actually both amiga/atari amiga computers r still bring made also a accelerator card called vampire thats a cool runnning and faster ver of the popular motorola 68K cpu actually a advanced ver of the last 68060 cpu this allows us to play and do everything that was amde 4 68k on any amiga ver besides differences in chipset eg. AGA/ECS/OCS also i think u guys who want to not use emulators but yet u still do most those systems like retron 5 etc may be able to read off real cart but so what cart is just media holder whats important is the game rom etc be played on real hardware as in the real chips used in said game system which inside most these hdmi sytems is just a arm based android tab just like the NES classic which is funny cause the hardware in that $60 thing is more powerful than a 3ds/wii lol u want to know more about amiga/commodore and anything else hit me up

    I looked up the NES Classic after watching this. Very interesting idea, but it depresses me that it’s only limited to 30 games and that’s it. Why would they do that? I can play every single game on emulators already.

    Maybe if I see it around for $20, I’ll pick it up.

    I think you should say video or visual upgrade, not graphical xP. Stupid technicality.

    I saw yoshis cookie in there next to zelda. Not much concerned about a review just thought itd be interesting if you mentioned it. I’m assuming it’s the same one or somewhat the same as the repetitive crappy remake for game boy that I currently own. Don’t even know where I got it haha I bet there’s some games in your collection you don’t much remember obtaining. As always mike, great stuff! Love the videos when I have NOTHING to do. Lol

    Why do you use steam so much?
    Do you know about GOG.com? It’s like steam but way better and it’s owned by a better and honest company as well (CD Projekt Red).

    I think you should give GOG a chance and stop relying on steam so much.

    Also, you should stop listening to Ryan so much. He is clearly a steam/valve fanboy.
    The vive suck. You should have gone for an Oculus Rift. It’s better and at least you don’t support valve’s and steam’s monopoly.

    Have you played Crystalis for NES, Mike? It’s another Zelda-esque game you might enjoy.

    Do you own any of the 8bitdo wireless controllers with the wireless receivers? They are great.

    I fully understand your decision to hold off on upgrading to RGB, but you seem to have one misconception about how you’d hook up SCART to your Framemeister:

    You don’t want a SCART-to-HDMI box. Doing the analog-to-digital conversion quickly is one of your Framemeister’s jobs.

    All you need is a cheap “Euro SCART to XRGB Mini 8-pin” cable to hook the RGB lines from the SCART cable up to the RGB port on the front of your Framemeister.


    Also, Japan has their own version of SCART called JP-21. Apparently they look the same but wire the pins differently, so don’t get them confused or you might damage something.

    If you want to plug Japanese and European consoles into the same SCART switcher, you need special “JP-21 to Euro SCART” or “Euro SCART to JP-21” cables which swap the pins around so they all match whichever “SCART to XRGB Mini 8-pin” cable you’re using. (Micomsoft sells both “JP-21 to XRGB Mini” and “Euro SCART to XRGB Mini” cables)

      Also, that marker on your copy of Milon’s Secret Castle is really bothering me.

      You can wipe the marker off with a paper towel dampened with rubbing alcohol. (I use a dollar-store “75% alcohol” spray-bottle.)

      For the marker on the textured plastic, repeat with new paper towels until they come away clean. You may not get it all off, but it’ll at least be very faint.

    Use the RGB mini port on your Frameister then all you need from there is a switch box for SNES GENESIS MASTER SYSYTEM because not many of your systems natively support RGB SCART. If your running thing into you Frameister with HDMI in its just a pass through don’t expect it to help with your LAG problem.
