  1. aw they were already made? dang i put a fair amount of time in to that. oh well. actually i just looked at a copy of super mario 3 for famicom and made a similar graphic. if you all like these your welcome to use them.
  2. design one eh? well let me see what i can pull out of my arse for ya lol
  3. im sure this has been asked before but it there a import charm? NA had the 25 imports badge if i remember correctly.
  4. converted to ntsc completed. pal boards are much higher in quality btw this is why i did pal instead of ntsc this time instead of swapping the lock out chip i instead disabled it by putting another socket on top of the first one with the leg pulled out of the plastic so is not to damage the lock out chip. i ended up breaking anather nes trying to get the ppu and cpu off with my crappy 20 dollar de soldering iron so i broke down and got a hakko desoldering iron. i will never look back this thing is amazing! best of all no glitches or issue its works perfectly. interestingly enough the old power supply was failing on this unit too. if you have an m82 i recommend you replace the power supply. you wont regret it
  5. anyone have a loose copy in near mint or mint condition? or the manual too?
  6. 90s voice acting in full quality.
  7. i didnt start till 2004 but as a kid i remember my mother buying an employees video game collection in 1995 from our local electronics repair shop i got 50 nes games for 100 dollars which i still have today.
  8. 16 years ago for me (2004). it started as a joke really. my friend got me pokemon sapphire and i thought it would be funny to keep the box and packaging in perfect condition to surprise him with it next year. between that time i realized it was fun to collect video games and started going to garage sales and thrift stores to get more. hunting for video games then was hard though 5am get up and just go. my mother would come along and help since i couldn't drive at the time. i did the garage sale thing for a short time but i quit when some old korean man kept beating me to it. like every time no joke lol. i actually followed him and we talked on the side of the road and he explained hes just buying for fun. hes still alive today and still out there doing this i just have him find me stuff and he usually gives me good deals on what hes finds hes a friend of mine now. its pretty hard to find any thing now though. a few times a year i i find something good at the thrift store. the heyday of collecting cheap is gone now.
  9. its not a man cave, its a sign cave lol
  10. i got this to convert to ntsc (which will be reversible) its a pal-b unit. i noticed theres a few extra caps on the buffer chips for the pal unit and the board is also much higher quality than the ntsc version. im going to look in to getting those caps and see if placing them on the chips on the ntsc will fix the weird graphical issues on my other unit. power supply is a 120v/240v all i needed was a simple converter. plug. i used a composite to hdmi device to convert the pal signal to digital signal. it included all the games so ive tested and its working. only issue i notice was the switch on the back wont respond with the timer on the custom asic chip. i confirmed its a bad switch and have found an exact replacement on the internet to fix it with. power supply will be replaced. cpu, ppu, lock out chip, and crystal oscillator will be swapped out with a ntsc version. these chips are already socketed so only soldering will be the crystal oscillator. the video amp modulator will also be replaced cause im not sure if those circuit are the same between pal and ntsc. i think thats it. i paid a ton for this! dang taxes and import fees suck!
