    Joystick wiring question

    If I made a custom joystick and wired the ground to a fifth button and then daisy chained the live wire of A to a fifth button and the live wire of B to the fifth button, and did the same thing with C and D to a sixth button, would that cause any problems? I want to have a 6 button joystick that...

    Samurai Shodown 2 Ukyo technique

    Sometimes I can do Ukyo's crouching A+B attack while actually rolling AWAY from my enemy. Does anyone know a consistent way to pull this off? It seems like it can happen if you do a roll away and press A+B on the precise frame, but I don't know.

    It's not great, but it's better than Kraut Buster.

    Retrobit 8 button Genesis gamepad

    It's actually good. Still the best directional pad on the market after 30 fucking years somehow (this industry sure sucks a lot of cock). They pretty much fixed the only flaws the gamepad had (no select or shoulder buttons), although unless you're Asian or have little girl hands, the gamepads...

    WOW that's fresh (the DOS Aladdin's a 32bit game, by the way).

    Hyper Light Drifter

    I figured you guys would appreciate this since you like good games. I just tried this game, and it blew the wig off my scalp. I was not expecting it to be as good as it is. This is the best new Zelda style game in YEARS. Everything about it is on point. The feedback, gameplay, and feel are...

    Help preserve two incredibly rare, unreleased arcade games

    If you want to help MAME, you can donate a little money to this fundraiser to get two rare games released. Shoutime is an arcade enthusiast in Japan who has bought MANY PCBs and provided dumps to MAME. He's easily spent several dozens of thousands of dollars on boards and just given away the...

    Neo Geo games with the best CD music?

    I've started hacking MAME to play FLAC versions of the Neo Geo CD music when it'd normally play the Yamaha 2610 music. Which Neo Geo CD games do you think have the best soundtracks? I'm doing Samurai Shodown II first, but I'm not sure which one to do after that. Off topic, but earlier this...

    Metal Slug 3 is on sale for $2.39 on Steam right now...

    ...and it's still not worth it. Totally offensive port. Somehow, even though MAME's done it for several years, they didn't emulate the raster effects, so the cool red screen distortion effect on the last boss is missing. I usually criticize these terrible cash grabs for stealing MAME code, but...

    FS: Wells Gardner 25" CRT in San Jose, CA for $50

    It needs a cap kit and degaussing big time, but it doesn't have any noticeable burn in. Should make for a good monitor for someone. You have to pick it up and pull it out of a cabinet. I can demo it so you can check it out before you decide if you want to buy it.

    I found out why MAME'S HLSL filter always looked like shit

    I've spent a lot of time fiddling around with MAME's HLSL filter to get it to look more like an arcade monitor, but it was a lost cause because the image was always blurry and lacking the crispness of the real thing. Well, I dug into the shader programs and found out that the problem was really...

    WTT: Working Street Fighter 2 Turbo board for someone to calibrate and degauss my monitor

    I'm in San Jose, CA. It's an official Capcom SF2T board. It works. I have _no_ idea what I'm doing with CRTs. I have a Wells Gardner monitor that has crappy convergence and needs to be degaussed/tweaked. I will also throw in free beer.

    FS: 25" Wells Gardner K7401 in San Jose, CA for $100

    This monitor has a so-so picture. There's no visible burn in, but it has some convergence issues, and there's a magenta color splotch in the top corner of the screen. It might just need to be degaussed, but I think there's something else going on. You have to be willing to remove the monitor...
