Re: Mega drive flicker means busted cartridge?

Re: Mega drive flicker means busted cartridge?

My TV is a Panasonic LCD TV: TX-L26X20B. I don't yet have the details of the second TV I tried the games on, that didn't exhibit the flickering, but displayed everything in grey scale. I'm not technical, so I don't know any more. All I know is that two games I ordered off the same seller at the same...

Re: Mega drive flicker means busted cartridge?

I was able to try my mega drive on another tv. Unfortunately, that one displayed everything in grey scale, including a game that my main tv displays in colour with no issues, but the flickering was completely gone. So it may well be the games doing something funny with the resolution that my main tv...

Re: Frankenstein: Through the Eyes of the Monster (Sega CD)

I love the case. It's like a heavy duty, extra thick DVD case! Is this how games were sold in Europe? The annoying thing with E.U saturn games is that the spine is just cardboard; easy to damage. IMO the U.S cases were far better. though the PS1 made the better call with it's jewel case sized boxes.

Re: Mega drive flicker means busted cartridge?

The games are Pal versions on a Pal mega drive. I've tried cleaning the contacts and they still flicker, display in black and white etc. The strange thing is that the cut scenes in Gloc don't flicker, but the title screen, game it'self do. It's kind of the opposite with Steel empire; the game it'sel...

Re: Mega drive flicker means busted cartridge?

Empire of steel stopped flickering once I was through the main menu's and in the game. But G-loc continues to flicker even once in the game.

Mega drive flicker means busted cartridge?

A couple of mega drive games I purchased recently don't display properly on my mega drive model 2; the screen is in black and white and flickers up and down, with both of them. Is this a sign of busted cartridges? The games are G-Loc Air Battle and Empire of Steel, both from the same person. I tried...

Re: 2019/9/22: Nintendo Switch: Horizon Chase Turbo, Dragon's Lair Trilogy

My apologies for the comment mis-interpreted as rude. I have some difficulty with interpretation and communication with others.

May I ask that any copies of my post quoted above be edited out?

Then I will delete the content of this post, as I find it a little embarrassing to admit the above.
