Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions
. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum
. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I own an original-model (gray box) NES and an original (gray and purple box) SNES. Both work fine, or at least about as well as they possibly can (considering inherent design flaws in the case of the front-loading NES, etc.)
I am considering whether it would be advantageous to save space and hassle by replacing both with one of the various two-in-one (or even three-in-one, but I haven't started much of a Genesis collection and that isn't as important to me) clone systems on the market, and I was wondering if anybody had any experience with them and could recommend which is the best of the lot, with the broadest compatibility, best fidelity, fewest bugs, etc.
My Googling so far has turned up a few discussions and articles on various retro-gaming sites and it seems like the Retro Duo is the latest and greatest. However, even it has some reported issues, such as less-than-stellar sound on the NES side and incompatibility with some SNES games such as Kirby Super Star (terrifying to me as that is one of my favorite SNES titles and if I can't play that on the machine the whole thing isn't worth it IMO). What makes it more frustrating is that different people seem to have different results, some people saying Kirby for example won't boot at all and other people playing it without the slightest issue.
Any guidance or personal experience people could share would be much appreciated!
