I paid a hundred for the XT, an XT clone with a Seagate 20mb disk and 5.25 and 3.5 floppies that I've been using to copy software from 3.5 to 5.25, an Amstrad PC compatible luggable, a Tandy 1110HD, an NEC laptop from right before the Windows 95 launch, two model F keyboards, and some floppy disks.. The clone had a SixPackPlus, a RAM and real time clock card that I put in the IBM as well.

Took a while off from collecting and playing to build up a stereo setup. Found this XT at a garage sale and couldn't resist though!

Played on an XT with original floppy and fixed disk and 640K ram expansion on a model F keyboard. The XT has a CGA card but I'm stuck using composite video until a cable arrives. I think I might have accidentally left it set in "no special graphics" mode when testing it and forgot to put it back in 80 column CGA, because I thought at one point I was playing Flightmare in colour over composite but now everything is monochrome...

A terrible scoree on a game that looks like its worth getting better at.

@derek:

It's a 12 or 13 inch, I think, dated 1982 I believe. There's a little panel above the channel select buttons that opens and allows for fine tuning channels, which was great for hooking up the Famicom.

I guess not playing this game for a while improved my ability to play, because I did massivly better then I ever have previously.

Turns out that getting a clear picture of the Game Gear's screen is the olny thing harder then looking at the screen while you play!

 

(Actually that's a lie, I think the Game Gear screen is real nice)

A fairly bad score on a fairly bad game, the controls absolutly kill it. The other mode is a skateboparding RPG, if that makes any sense, and both modes are impossible to control without the manual to explain. The title screen music is great though.

As seen in the Best Records, there is a faster time on the cartridge but I got it secondhand and have no idea if I set it or not.

An hour away from DOUBLE my personal average, that is.

Eleven hours is only an hour away from my personal average of 6 for a first generation game, but eh, Yellow is a slightly longer game and I had to do the Elite 4 twice because I didn't get a picture the first time.

@derek: Yeah, you put the Pokemon game you want to play in the Transfer Pak and then in Pokemon Stadium you select the Game Boy Tower. The cartridge has an emulator in it to run them if I remember right. There's only around a dozen games in the States that use it- the first six Pokemon games we got, Perfect Dark, Mario Tennis and a few others link up between Game Boy and Nintendo 64 game paks and do cool stuff.

Playe with a Japanese copy of Pokemon Stadium using the N64 transfer pak, and about on par with my other playthroughs of the first generation of Pokemon games.

@derek:

As far as finding them at yard sales or thrift stores, the best you'll find is a Famiclone and a 999999 in 1 bootleg cartridge. I got most of my import games at a local shop that mostly sells imports they buy in big lots online. Online is really the way to go in most cases though, that's where I got the Famicom.

Bad picture quality is bad, I can't find my proper camera so I used a cheap camcorder thing that's about a decade old.

@Fr0st: I've got nine consoles with nine wired controllers, A/V and power between them and three VCRs - all with power and at least one input and output - all running through dual switchboxes, one with 4 A/V inputs and 2 outputs and one with one RF and four coaxial inputs and two outputs to get everything plugged into one TV. It's absolutely insane trying to plug in or rearrange anything.

This is a horrible version of Tetris. The game graphicly and musicly is alright, and from what I've read is pretty accurate to the first version of Tetris, but the controls make it a nightmare to play. Down on the D-pad is rotate counter-clockwise, there is no rotate clockwise, A is quickdrop, and there is no way to speed a block's decent. So you either accidently quickdrop a block trying to rotate it or spend several seconds waiting for a block to fall down the screen far enough to fit it in a gap.

Hmm, my yellow Game Boy Camera says I have a high score of 3051, but I got thjat secondhand so I'm not even sure if I set it. Anyways, massive room for improvement here.

My favourite part of this game will forever be what is very clearly the Thundercats theme playing in the background.

@thedarkbanshee: It's for the NES Four-Score, it lets you have four controllers plugged in one NES for games like Nintendo World Cup and RC Pro-am 2 with 4-player support.

@S.BAZ:

Yeah, the Duck Hunt manual says the 'target range' is spprox. 6 feet

Put in requests for all three modes with any distance added in, will move this over to One Duck Any Distance when/if it gets approved.

Yeah, turns out the score rolls over after 999,900. Should I leave it like it is with the added 50,000 points or resubmit at 999,700?

I have a feeling this game would be more fun if I knew what I was doing...

I tried to get a good shot of the TV and the Nintendo but it didn't really work.

@Sixx: I don't really know a lot about arcade cabinets, the only arcade game I played a lot was Ms. Pac-Man. It's the first time I've seen any of the Vs. cabinets in person, but I don't really frequent arcades.

Hey, I got to play an actual Nintendo Vs. arcade machine! As you can see, the screen was tilted back so it was incredebly hard to get the light gun to regester properly, and I got a horrible score.

I was in a moving car when I took these, so they all turned out pretty shakey, these are the best of the ones I took. Naturally, the only decent one I got was one of the cartridge.

I took these in a moving car so I had to take tons of pictures to get decent ones, and as it is these are horrible. Naturally, the only clear one I got was of the cartridge.

@Sixx:

As long as nobody surpasses this score, I won't have to.

 

The top NES is the shell of the first NES I ever owned, but the board and 72 pin connecter have been replaced at least once. I try to take pretty good care of it.

As a quick note, the name isn't flashing because the high score screen is only up for a few seconds and I had to keep purposely losing to get the pictures

@S.BAZ: It's worth a play, but really only one. It's kind of unfortunate because the NES game isn't horrible, it just has really slippery controls and pretty monotonous graphics and unfortunately the Game Boy hinders it even more on both fronts. I probably play more 'bad' games then 'good' ones just because the bad ones are cheeper and easier to find.

This game is really bad, it takes the worst of the NES game and amplifies it. There is huge room for improvement on this score, but I haven't played this game in months and need to practice it more
