    Been getting real tired of the CMOS battery in my Saturn.  Might try to solder in an external battery holder so it's easier to access.  More ideal would be to use a different type of battery with a larger capacity.

    Yes, and the CMOS battery also dies incredibly quickly when the console is not left plugged in.
     
    I thought about doing the RAM mod too but it's a lot of really tiny soldering that I'm not really in the mood to deal with.  There's someone here locally that does really great mod work but I don't boot the Saturn too often these days and so it's probably not worth the expense.
     
    Once the MiSTer has a proper Saturn core I may just sell the console - swapping the drive with an ODE / doing all the battery and RAM mods seems like more trouble than it's worth.

    @DarkSakul@JHDKplease chill out.  Thanks.
     
    It's just a dumb thread for fun.  Both of you clearly are not understanding what the other is saying but who fucking cares because this is a thread about Angel's waifu.

    Yandere is just a character who is obsessed with someone to the point where they are willing to do extreme things/harm others.  If nobody challenges them or they don't encounter obstacles to their affection they won't necessarily engage in violence at all.

    I'm pretty sure they fixed that issue a long time ago.
     
    Also, the idea that more PC power usage is going to affect your power bill in significant ways is a myth.  Unless you've got several mining rigs each with a row of high-end GPUs, you're not going to notice a change in your power bill just from having your PC run a bit hotter or faster.  Even when doing some pretty aggressive overclocking the amount of extra money it will cost you on your power bill is negligible.
     
    Likewise, a 10 degree increase in CPU temps for whatever reason isn't going to kill off your CPU any faster.  Unless they are constantly doing heavy encoding the average user will never get close to the thermal operating limits of their CPUs, and even if they do modern CPUs are designed to throttle down before any damage can be done.
     
    If you want to play SamSho on PC, just do it.  There's no reason not to.

    Because in Europe people started with Commodore/Amiga/ZX Spectrum, and then moved on to PCs.  European versions of console games were also really bad a lot of the time (PAL/NTSC issues).
     
    In the US people were pretty much always console users.  Atari > NES.

    Epic doesn't have all the features that Steam does, but they have given me something like 50 free games by now.  I'm not going to turn that down.
     
    I have all of the major clients installed on my PC and don't have any problem using any of them.
     
    GOG is quite close to Steam in terms of the important things like cloud saves, and has the better client to boot.  GOG Galaxy even aggregates all of your games across all platforms and puts them in a single place for you to manage them.

    Despite this, people still cling to Steam and treat GOG as an afterthought.  I feel like a lot of the hate other clients get is simply because people are too lazy to install another client on their computer and are trying to justify it.

    I have had 0 issues with any of the other launchers tbh, but everyone's experience is different I guess.
     
    If convenience for launching games is so important, then honestly everyone should just be using GOG Galaxy.  There's no reason not to use it.  It can manage games on every platform, and has built-in messaging.  You can buy games on any platform you want, and then run them all from one launcher.  Yet somehow people don't use it...why?
     
    I'm not talking about you specifically, but I'm tired of people crying about how Epic is buying exclusives, or how other clients don't have Steam trading card support, when in reality all they REALLY want to say is "I've been using Steam and I'm too fucking lazy to try anything else." 
     
    Not only that, but when a legitimately good client comes around that can do most of the important things (GOG), they don't want to touch it.
     
    Here is my GOG client:
     

     
    I have 1036 games over 5 different platforms.  Some of these games are literally not available or playable through Steam.  Using GOG I can buy from any platform I want and take advantage of sales/special promos/offers on all platforms.  I can launch/install/manage all of them from within GOG.   If I want to talk to people GOG has a friends list and messaging client.  For a large number of people this is the only solution they will need...but because it's not Steam it will forever be ignored.
     
    I'm old enough to remember when HL2 launched and Steam was the enemy.  Digital distribution and DRM was going to lock down the PC gaming market and ruin everything.  Now it's 2021 and people are sucking Steam's dick and begging to have a single storefront monopolize everything.
     
    Gamers are lazy and shortsighted.
