    MOD My PS3?

    I heard a while back about people modding their ps3's by installing new modified operating systems onto them giving them all kinds of new abilities.. My PS3 is just collecting dust and I would like to re-purpose it so I can play mame, nes, snes, sega genesis, ps2 games on it. So first I am am wondering how to backup my current data and restore it when need be.. then of course to install a modified OS giving it more abilities than usual. So for that part I am wondering what is available software wise for this and where do I find/download these from? After I overwrite the default PS3 Operating System can I restore it to default again? If so how do I do this as well? Thanks, this sounds a bit difficult so I could really use some guidance with this. I will probably want to install retro arch to do most of the emulation..

    New Graphics Card And Emulation Concerns

    nope it's 1000 MHz more than the MSI RX 550 for some reason, just came back from the store, I went with the ASUS RX 550 4GB version. Wish me luck. I'm going to install this thing today, and try to get my Launchbox/BigBox collection all setup. It's going to take some time unfortunately but hey it's worth it to be able to connect this PC to my TV and play all my favorite retro games.

    I hear you, my other PC I have an ASRock Motherboard and an XFX Radeon HD 7950. Been working just fine..

    New Graphics Card And Emulation Concerns

    ok thanks for the replies, I think I may go for the ASUS version of the RX 550 since it has 1000 MHz more than the MSI RX 550 in the Effective Memory Clock . That should make a big difference right?

    New Graphics Card And Emulation Concerns

    yeah gotta be new I hate buying anything used especially when it comes to computer parts. Looks like I will have to spend more than I wanted to but check my last post and tell me what you guys think between those 2 models.. basically have similar specs but since I have an ASUS Motherboard maybe I would be better off just buying the ASUS? How are MSI GPU Cards? Who makes the best GPU cards in the business? Also what is your take on AMD VS Nvidia GPU cards at this time?

    New Graphics Card And Emulation Concerns

    Well I am looking for a budget graphics card that does not suck. I don't have much to spend, was looking at this AMD one from MSI. Are their GPU cards any good? https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127763&ignorebbr=1 it's the MSI Radeon R7 250 DirectX 12 R7 250 2GD3 OC 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 I know there are better cards but I don't have much to spend right now, any recommendations? I can not spend over $150 but preferably under that amount. this will be mostly for my emulation pc with the most being PS1/PS2, Gamecube,Wii, PSP and some PC games such as Serious Sam 1 and 2, Max Payne 1,2,3, Mafia 2 etc.. How is this card, would it be good enough for this?

    New Graphics Card And Emulation Concerns

    My graphics cards just crapped out and I am looking to buy a replacement quickly but was wondering about the potential problem of buying a new GPU since many emulators use direct X 11 and some even Direct X 9 along with games as well.. so my question is if I upgrade to a Direct X12 GPU would this make emulation/gaming a nightmare for me or is everything somehow backward compatible with DX12? How does this work?

    Retroarch Hatari Core (Atari ST) Crashing Issue

    Dang, ok well I will have to keep searching for an answer to this issue. Hoping someone may know how to bypass or deal with it in some way. Thanks for your help. I agree about the computer emulation, like Amiga emulation is so much better on the FS-UAE emulator than retroarch, I can not even seem to get the retroarch amiga core to work yet..

    Retroarch Hatari Core (Atari ST) Crashing Issue

    haha yeah the CD-i, not exactly awesome but was hoping for just a few games on that, there is one fighting game I was trying to get going that seems kind of cool called Mutant Rampage Body Slam.. I got the cd-i to work and load it via MESS but the dang thing gave me an error message about some type of digital video cartridge? Do you happen to know anything about that? Yes I tend to agree in most cases that the stand alone emulators are usually best since they have more features. The authors of the retroarch cores really need to step up there game when it comes to core options.. it has been disappointing.. Original Post:

    Retroarch Hatari Core (Atari ST) Crashing Issue

    Yes ok so I downloaded the 3.2 version and yes I got a game loaded finally.. ok I am pooped haha I been at this all day with Atari ST and Amiga trying to get all of this stuff trying to get them to work by themselves before trying to put them in launchbox and it has been hell. I guess that's the price I pay but in the end I know I am one step closer to my dream emulation setup with the mighty LaunchBox..

    Retroarch Hatari Core (Atari ST) Crashing Issue

    I hear that man these old computer systems got me not having much joy and much frustration, seems like many have yet to be fully panned out and easy to use. Amiga, Atari ST in particular at the moment but CD-i and other ones I have yet to fully configure/test..
