About Sound on VB, you may be better of with a PC Engine. About the same capabilities, but way more support.

But I wouldn't mind some great tunes to listen on the VB.


Space Squash is rather interesting, I might just get it >.>
also yeah, I dabble in PCE a bit (it's pretty nice tbh) but it's just not the saaamme, I'm a bit of a stickler for being able to use the actual thing with all of its unique quirks heh

I myself am a sucker for Galactic Pinball. Played that more than Wario Land (which I still should finish).

Which games did you get?


well with it came Mario's Tennis (of course), Wario Land, Teleroboxer, Red Alarm, and Golf.
And since that post, I've gotten Vertical Force and Panic Bomber, and am looking for Mario Clash to come in any day. :p

I'm not looking to collect every single game, just the ones that interest me most. That and maybe a flash cart, so that when the day finally comes that someone writes a competent music tool for VB, I can export that music and play it off of hardware (...gosh, a girl sure can dream)

so at PAX i tried VR for the first time--superhot VR. couldn't stop thinking about it since.

found a deal on ebay, and, welp...





google earth VR's pretty profound. but also motion sickness-inducing if you disable all the comfort/scale features and go ham with it

edit: thumper in VR is RAADDDDD

No, didn't dump that (yet).

But I still have everything...

Now where are those batteries....

I don't suppose you dumped that, did you? It would be really awesome to have that preserved, though I have no idea how you'd actually go about doing it. (A backup of the audio but also the raw data stream, since it's analog/digital data? Hm.)

I totally forgot about Mach Rider, but I should've known Wrecking Crew. When I end up getting one, I'll have to see if the US ROMs versions still act properly with the data recorder in a AV Famicom.

Also Mach Rider and Wrecking Crew.

Mine still had a Nintendo branded cassette with some demo programms and graphics included.

The point is more that it's new to you.

Like this!



This here is a Famicom Data Recorder. It's basically a glorified Nintendo-branded portable tape deck. I haven't gotten a chance to test it yet, because, uh, who still has audio tapes around still?

I also got an FDS that was "tested and working". Unsurprisingly it was not! It is in pretty good shape, but the drive belt, the thing that actually makes it read disks, was, uh. Well it certainly wasn't a belt any more, more like some weird black sludge. At least replacements for that are $5 × 10 on ebay... and in the process BMF got his FDS fully working again, instead of refusing to read disks most of the time.

Look at that hee-ho, he's so happy to be on the front of the box!

A NAS is good because they usually have built-in redundancy; most have at least two drive bays, so you can run them in RAID-1. If you have 2 × 4 TB drives, you get 4 TB of storage, and if one of the hard drives takes a shit, you still have all your data.

A different NAS I've worked with had 4 × 1 TB drives in (assumedly) RAID-5, and it'd actually had a failed drive for some time before anybody noticed Even then it was because some idiot ejected one of the working drives while it was on, so it immediately stopped working until that was fixed.

You can have one of those, plus a flash drive for important stuff to back up, too, or other external drives if you need to take those around.

I probably should try a big NAS, huh. Gotten too used to cluttering up my computer with HDDs inside and out.

Posts: 23358/23358
Yeah, all of the other ones they had were diskless, and most of the ones online are also diskless... At least some of them are cheaper that way, but NAS hard drives are still expensive

Now I just need to copy all of my stuff to it.

lucky you

I've never seen a "My Cloud" NAS around here without the 0TB indicator (which I presume it means it doesn't come with hard drives).
