Commando NES Freezing

I am on my second copy of Commando for the NES. It seems the game just randomly freezes? I have seen this behavior on both an original NES and a retro bit RES. If you wait long enough the game might unfreeze on the nes but not the res. Is this a know issue with this game?

Re: HD Retrovision Component cables for retro consoles???

I'm curious about this too. I'm trying to figure out sms/genesis solution for my HD tv. I trying to decide between these cables, mega retron HD or retron 5.

Re: Double Dragon 2600 vs 7800

I actually beat the 2600 version today using a proline controller without losing a life. Elbow smash is the key!

Re: Double Dragon 2600 vs 7800

I've actually beaten the 7800 before. The 2600 I can now get well into the third mission. I should mention that I don't use a 2600 joystick. I either use a Genesis or my modded NES pad although I can do ok with a proline. I also play it on the flashback portable. Both games are about learning what a...

Re: Double Dragon 2600 vs 7800

I did get this game and it is fairly brutal but that being said I did start to have some fun with it after I started to get the hang of it. That being said I still can't get past mission 2. I have gotten past the Abobo screen usually with one bar of energy in my last life and then I am quickly kille...

Double Dragon 2600 vs 7800

I am morbidly curious about the Atari 2600 version of double dragon. I own the 7800 version which I don’t actually think is as bad as people say. How much of a step down is the 2600 playability wise?

Who didn't own a NES in the 80's?

Back in the 80's I never owned a NES. I owned a 7800 and then a SMS. The 7800 was first because I foolishly believed my friend that the NES was more expensive and the only plus it had was better graphics. I came to find this was incorrect. Fast forward 1 and half later I am trying to decide between ...

Same. I wonder if you could use the 2600 controller?
