ProjectTalk:-Libretro Docs Update

Give your thaks to HunterK of Libretro forums for th

ProjectTalk:- Bezels Bezels Bezels

Like many people here I am a RetroArch whore That means I use Overlays to add borders to some things...To fair I dont actually use many overlays but then again my setup has never been polished and tends to be a testing ground more than an actual game machine. Cant help but tinker....   Anyway I totally love bezel artwork and enjoy collecting bezels for all systems (not so much Arcade)   I would love to put a big global pack together in Metalzoic's Mega Bezel Pack style (

Don't Buy from ebuy2016.com SCAM

While I wait on hold to my bank..... I feel stupid for not doing my usual reasearch before buying a product online. The above site is a scam as far as im concerned. 2Tb external drive payed for and no confirmation email and no drive and no response from the site.  AVOID bad purchases and do your checks befor buying....which is hard because out of 4 purchases last week with 2 being from legit UK sites all three have caused problems. Wrong item delivered for one and the other h

My Blog Revamp

My Blog revival,   Background:- I found the blog section one day and thought this is cool, I like writing.

Anyway I have been unhappy in general life for a fair while.....plodding along collecting my romsets, working on my setup till early hours and learnin

Well my weekend Hyper finally subsided after the wife told me to sit down and stop talking and getting dropped in it at work. 2hr job turns into 10hrs nice. To be fair hypers are fun but tiring.

Off to dig some flower beds at a ridiculous  8pm...i just want to beat my paperboy score

Fan Mods Nintendo 64 To Act As Switch Dock

With its thin, all black design, the standard Nintendo Switch dock gives the console a modern, sleek look when you want to play on your television. However, for one fan, they were looking for something a bit different. Reddit user tettzan777 took a broken Nintendo 64 unit and modded it to be a Nintendo Switch dock. The user says their only concern is that they cannot attach the Joy-Cons to the Switch for charging purposes while the system is docked. In addition to making the cartridge

NINTENDO SWITCH DEVELOPMENT KIT COSTS $440 ONLY

Nintendo always had a reputation of being the least open to 3rd party and indie developers. The company promised repeatedly to turn that around, and it seems like it is finally fulfilling that promise with the Nintendo Switch. A Nintendo representative shed some light on the company's plans for 3rd party and indie support during the Game Creators Conference in Osaka, Japan. Ultimately, the process of bringing a game to the Nintendo Switch would be very similar to the one in place now for th

DroidTalk:- Launchbox mentioned Android!!!!!!

Well I was watching the latest news and android got a mention which peaked my interest. As a Nvidia Shield TV user it would be amazing see an Android power of LaunchBox. Maybe one day 😄 I setup GameCube recently and I have tested some games with great results it's impressive what the Shield TV combined with Dolphin can get you.  I also updated my Shield firmware last night and it's brought some great additions that hampered the emulation user experience BUT I have not tested
