Once I get the Brazilian version, I'll have the whole set :p

Nope, I don't have the Japanese box (or the blue N64 either), so I guess you have me beat there :P
I thought about getting a boxed one, but if I got the Japanese box, then I would end up wanting the boxes for all of the other versions as well. And for some of those games (the Taiwanese/Hong Kong versions for example), it's hard enough to find the game itself, let alone the box too. I would end up losing my mind trying to find them all lol

Picked up a PS2 Slim so I could play Taiko Drum Master. Best rhythm game!

So since you guys either have RGB setups or are interested in them I figured I'd ask about SCART switches.

Is there an affordable high-quality product available? The only thing I've seen is the $15 3 port one I found on eBay which looks like a Hama and the DIY one from the Shmup/ Assembler forums (I'm on a list to be on a list :\ ). Any better options out there?

AFA cables go everything I've seen looks like handmade stuff based on monoprice BNC cables available on eBay for a slight (affordable) premium.

From what I've read Console RGB to SCART -> SCART Switch -> SCART to BNC -> CRT is the way to go. I've just ordered a ton of various connectors to try and get this figured out. Loads of research still to do though.

Best way is a matrix switcher like these;
http://www.extron.co.uk/product/listbytype.aspx?subtype=139
http://www.kramerelectronics.co.uk/products/model.asp?pid=1869&sf=44&pname=VP-885

No loss of quality, all BNC connections though.
These things go for cheap on fleabay, the cabling will cost you more!

I honestly don't know that much because it's so confusing. I attempted to read through Fudoh's stuff on his website. But I didn't get it. When I went to the Louisville Arcade Expo I saw a BVM/PVM connected to like a red white  yellow cable. That's it. So I just wanted a BVM/PVM and do a simple connection and be done with it.

I haven't seen any devices in the US that support SCART.  Are you modding your consoles to use SCART?  I'm very noob in the world of console modding/upgrading in this sense, so I'd love some info on this.   :thumb:

RGB is the only way IMHO...
A lot of old consoles have good RGB without modding - megadrive, sfc, ps1, saturn etc... no forgetting JAMMA too ;)
Hooking up the *right* cables isn't too bad, there's loads of info out there on pinouts etc if you need to make up your own stuff.
Only consoles I've had to mod for RGB are PCE, n64 & sega mk3

I've been playing Final Fantasy 7 on my 14" S-video PVM over the last few days after work. It's much better than composite (yellow) but not quite as nice as RGB. The monitor itself was only $20 so I think it was totally worth it (out of the three I have it's the only one without RGB). You wouldn't really be doing yourself any favors by using composite (yellow RCA cable) video on nice monitor, it kind of defeats the purpose. The red and white cables are audio left and right which you shouldn't use with these monitors since they are mostly mono, I recommend a nice pair of studio monitors instead. (I'm using my cheap m-audios, thanks tj!)

If you want to keep it simple at first just use S-Video but eventually you'll get the itch and want all your consoles to look there best and start to invest in a full BNC-based RGB setup. ;)

Guess I mean S Video, not Yellow. Anywho, if I could score one for $14, I'd already be playing on one. unfortunately, it's $100-200+ here to get a PVM or BVM.

I also got a 14" BVM and a 20" PVM. Need to take a pic when I'm back home.

Got a PAL Snes (rgb) attached to them. :)

Sadly the pvm is a bit noisy and makes a high frequency noise. Some people even don't hear it, but I hear it and it drives me crazy.

Would love to have a 20" bvm or a 29" pvm....

Cool to see them getting in on retro games, but I can't imagine this being a better alternative to eBay, in terms of price.   :-\

I just realized that my GAME BOY games are now 25 years old  :eek:

I have no idea if any of them are rare/worth anything. I got them from my uncle like ten years ago.

A few new pickups today:




Alisia Dragoon is really one of my favorite Genesis titles of all-time. It plays like an adventure platformer with RPG elements. You have a set of familiars that follow you around and level up separately from you. The game gets brutally difficult but the graphics and music are great for a Genesis game.

Light(e)ning Force is the 4th game in the Thunderforce series. From a technological standpoint the game is absolutely incredible. I have never seen this many layers of paralax scrolling on ANY other 4th generation system, and that includes heavy hitters like the Neo Geo. There is some noticeable slowdown in places, but not near as much as you'd think by the amount of things going on. Plus the opening music is ****ing rad!

Peace Keepers is a side-scrolling beat-em-up which is pretty standard fare except that there are branching paths and multiple outcomes for each level. It's not as fun as say, Final Fight, but it's unique and getting quite difficult to find these days.

Tales of Phantasia. I can't say enough good things about this title. The game is hands down the most lush and gorgeous SNES game I have ever played. The graphics, animation, and voice acting (yep, on a SNES) are all quite good, and although I don't speak Japanese I can hear every syllable spoken clearly. This is my first Tales game ever (appropriate since it's the first) and so far I am very impressed. If I didn't know any better I would've guessed this to be a PS1 or Saturn game by the way ity looks, moves, and sounds. One of the best RPGs on the SNES, and it absolutely baffles me that it never made it to the US. This is a reproduction translated cart, which thus far works

Any mid-90s Trinitron. I figured start with that before a BVM/PVM.
I've seen some good ones for free, but every time I confirm my pick-up they'd say it was picked up for charity or they'd never respond.

Ahh yeah, Trinitron is obviously good.  I got ripped off on a BVM last year (seller "didn't have anything to test the connection with", it was only $50 so I took it, turns out it's missing the RGB control board  :mad: ), and haven't searched around for a replacement yet.  :-/ 

You're not interested in getting it set up and dropping in a CRT after the fact?  Or getting a dumpy screen for now and upgrading later?

I would say it's probably still worth $50, was it a 20"?


Speaking of retro gaming setups I still haven't found a good SCART switch for sale.

I've seen some good ones for free, but every time I confirm my pick-up they'd say it was picked up for charity or they'd never respond.

The JVC we had as a kid had a magnet put on the screen and was recently tossed.

Ahh yeah, Trinitron is obviously good.  I got ripped off on a BVM last year (seller "didn't have anything to test the connection with", it was only $50 so I took it, turns out it's missing the RGB control board  :mad: ), and haven't searched around for a replacement yet.  :-/ 

You're not interested in getting it set up and dropping in a CRT after the fact?  Or getting a dumpy screen for now and upgrading later?

If I can get a BVM/PVM off Craigslist then I'd go for it! I figured a good CRT would be easier to get and would at least get me S-video. Once I mod my consoles and/or get the right cables, I'll get a better monitor for those with RGB.

What, no SNES, Hoff? Nice Nintendo setup. :thumb:

SNES is downstairs hooked up to the SCART -> HDMI converter to test it out.  ;)

Don't worry, I've got every Nintendo console from NES to WiiU.  :confused:  And most of their handhelds too...

Nice setup!  Drink some beer, play some games, relax ^-^

^-^  That's the plan!  :D  And thanks.  :)

I would say it's probably still worth $50, was it a 20"?


Speaking of retro gaming setups I still haven't found a good SCART switch for sale.

It's a baby one.  I think 13".  I haven't tried hooking up RCA/S-video - think it's worth?  I think I'll need to pick up an adapter of some sort is why I'm asking (have honestly forgotten, I put the thing in the closet out of frustration).

Got all excited last night because someone posted an XBR model. Thought it was an XBR100, but turns out it's an XBR50.
Wondering if I should make the hour-and-a-half commute for a $10 TV...  :rolleyes:

Sweet repro cart. What does the ROM hack actually change?

Apparently the story lines up with the anime story.  I'm psyched to play it myself.  :D

Oh, yeah; I remember hearing about that one.

Also, almost didn't realize who responded because of the missing avatar.
