Re: Commando NES Freezing

I think I may have found an interesting discovery on this. I think this might be related to the controller you use. My 3 NES systems are a original NES, a retro-bit RES and a hyperkin Retron 3. My RES came with two controllers. The freezing happened on all 3 systems. I was using the retro-bit 1st co...

Re: 2019/8/25: Atari 2600: Shark Attack, Double Dragon

I actually like Double Dragon quite a bit. Once you master the elbow smash it becomes much more playable and fun! I have beaten the game without losing a life. I cannot use the default 2600 stick however, I need to use a genesis controller or a 7800 proline. You need a controller that can hit the up...

Re: Unsupported Video Signal for PS1 games on PS2?

I'm not really interested in hooking up older systems like the NES or Genesis to this. With HD retrovision cables, this thing is awesome for Genesis. The difference is night and day compared to just using composite thru the RetroTink. I don't have an SNES but I know they have HD retrovision cables ...

Re: Unsupported Video Signal for PS1 games on PS2?

Nice to know there's an option for improving picture clarity that, all things considered, doesn't cost as much as it could. I will keep it in mind. If anybody winds up picking up a RetroTink 2X, tell us about it here, aright! I do have one. Although I do not have a N64, I use it for the s-video out...

Re: Unsupported Video Signal for PS1 games on PS2?

So, trying to do my due diligence in reviewing Crash Bandicoot Trilogy for the Switch, I wanted to see how the old Crash games looked on my HDTV. So I plugged in my PS2 via component cable (normally I play my PS2 on a CRT) and after the Playstation logos appear I get the message "Unsupported V...

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

https://www.hdretrovision.com I’m wondering if anyone has any experience with these cables. I just found out about them this past weekend, but I guess they’ve been around for a couple years. They have component cables for SNES and Model 2 Genesis and then some adapters for Saturn, PS1 and Model 1 G...

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...
