Jesus the NeoSD flashcart costs more than the system itself. At least it means I won't have to buy individual carts anymore.

 

Reminds me of the original system. I probably could have snagged one once I started working as teenager but the games were like $200 a piece and I was like I ain't got cash for that.

Yeah, but if you had you could afford to buy a house or two now. The games are so damn expensive. :astonished:

It's actually more...400 EURO for the MVS version. After shipping and everything else, the thing costs more than an Oculus Rift...

 

Yeah but if you are going to VR. The HTC Vive is the way to go. One of my best friends has one. It's far more versatile. You do need a decent amount of setup space though.

Yeah but I live in an apartment and can't dedicate a whole room for VR...

He shares an apartment with family. He lives out of his bedroom and actually changed up it's layout for it. He's not the most organized guy but he pulled it off. Of course, he's like the smartest person I know.

Hmm...maybe I can get it to work then. Gotta make sure my bunny doesn't chew all the damn wires though...

@DarkSakul

 

So I bought the NeoSD from NeoSDStore and it should be arriving tomorrow. My credit card was declined, so I wired the money instead.

 

If you just call up your bank to tell them to accept the credit payment, you can use card. Store isn't shady -- apparently the bank they use over there (store is based in Spain) is just a pain in the ass with international payment.

 

Item is being shipped by UPS and should arrive tomorrow. It's probably safe to buy that PC Engine flash cart from them. I'll let you know once I get it.

I am happy with my current PC engine setup of PC Duo + Turbo Everdrive, and I have an Arcade Duo Card.

PC Engine CD games aren't hard to burn. Although I wished more games got the English Language Translation Treatment.

 

Also I got some Stick modding projects in the future. I going to gut the innerds of one of my Custom sticks, convert it to go off Neo Geo + Pinout, and just use project boxes for various systems.

Honestly I'm just concerned about the fact that CD drives won't last forever. I'm trying to get SD card replacements for all my old CD-based consoles. Trying to get a PS-IO for my PS1 as well.

It's not USB at all, Thats a Switch Craft VGA pass-though with a HD15 Breakout board attached

I am going to put this onto a Jasen hicks Panzer Stick case.

[Edit]

I Changed my Mind, I going to Put this into a Old Hori Case instead.

A long since gutted Hori Hrap 3 I been using as a SNES Stick.

What I meant to ask was 'is it possible to create a breakout box that works with usb?'

 

The controller is DB15, the breakout boxes to most retro consoles I imagine are also DB15. But is there a way to create one breakout box that would work on PC or more modern consoles? That way you'd have a truly universal solution.

Oh yeah, there be a breakout box for modern systems.

I am considering using the new Brooks Mars game pad.

And if that don't pan out, I got a UFB board not being used.

 

I going to make Modern Systems and PC Engine Boxes first, then A Sega Genesis Breakout box.

Also if I can, make a MC Cthulhu breakout box.

LOL, the Project boxes I ordered came in and they are too Big.

Not unusable, but they are twice the size I needed them too be.

 

Build a project box bar and mount it under your TV. It'll be like a sound bar, but instead of having speakers it'll have tons of ports to convert your stick. It'll be the ultimate docking station.

So I was going through the attic & found an abandoned project:

A Capcom Power Stick Fighter (SNES) with Sanwa OBSF-24 & JLW stick.

 

I'm thinking of finishing the mod, making it PS3/4 compat (Brook Fighting Board?) & giving it away to an old friend/community leader.

 

Problems:

The JLW has no spring or switches

I've never added LEDs alongside buttons

I haven't soldered in a while
