I highly recommend you guys get the MegaDrive(Genesis) version of 'Snow Bros'

A very rare game that's a lot of fun especially for coop. 

Thanks for the reminder! I've always heard about that game and haven't ever played it. 

I installed that image successfully earlier today, so I'm going to really dig into some of the games tomorrow.

Herzog Zwie is a cult classic multiplayer Genesis game.  One of the first I ever played a lot with my father.  It's an action RTS type of game, no co-op, but one of the most fun games ever made.

I used to love the HELL out of that game!

Got to mess with that Retrorama Rampage image more today. I decided I actually like the CRT shader / filter so I'll probably leave it on. 

The amount of games is awesome but overwhelming!

I saw the 1up machines at WalMart today.  I'll get one for my nephews when they are a little older, they are 2 and 3 right now.  I was joking with my dad, because my sister is keeping them away from xbox and shit like that, the bubble will be burst when he has a friend over and after a game of Pac-Man his friend is like "Cool, so can we play COD now?"

 

It's going to be like when I was little, my mother only bought "Vintage Diet-Cola" so not only diet soda, but off brand!  I was like 6 or 7 before I had actual real soda when my aunt gave me Sprite.  I still didn't understand Diet vs. regular soda, so I just thought Cola was garbage and lemon lime soda was amazing.  I think I was 10 when I slept over my friends house and he had Pepsi.  When my mother came to get me, I wanted her to try it.  I didn't know she knew soda like that existed!  Like it was literally an embarrassment for her, because I'm like "Just try their soda! It's amazing! Get her cola Mrs. Kivler, please!?"  Hard to believe for the children of the internet age, I know.  Fucking born in the 70's, crazy old.

 

The point of that rambling story is that I fully expect that conversation one day, with my nephew, where he tries to explain to me how shitty Pac-Man is compared to this Xbox3 thing he played at a friends house.  "Show Uncle Mike Doom!"

Just bought this bartop cab with Marvel vs Capcom graphics. 

Can't wait to get it all put together. :)

Worked a treat. Loads straight to the Retropie environment and then it’s just plug and play.

As an update: I decided to try out the newest Wolfanoz 128gb image after this one. After a couple of days of messing with it, I decided to go back to this. This is really the best overall image I've used so far.

It's an awesome image but if you really want to get the best of it you need to update from Retroarch 1.7.1 to the latest version. There's a new feature from 1.7.2 onwards which allows you to effectively eliminate input lag which is a total game changer if you play any fighting games like Street Fighter etc. It basically makes the controller response time as good as or even better than the original hardware,

Hmm... I could be wrong, but I can't seem to detect any lag at all currently. It couldn't hurt to update it anyway though. 

I have no clue how to do that, but I'm sure I could figure it out

To be fair it's not really noticeable on most games but if you run ahead two or three frames on something like Street Fighter 2 it makes a huge difference. I only noticed this because I got my arse kicked big time when I couldn't pull off any of the special moves. :lol:

Nothing's wired yet and I still need to actually screw it all together and install the joysticks but it's looking pretty nice so far. :)

Well done @Dazey that's more or less the same thing I have except I used the Arcade1Up as the shell. You'll have to turn all the bezels / overlays off since you're using a 5:4 or 4:3 monitor (like I am) but you do that once and you're all set :)

Looks great Russ. I actually saw this on the FB arcade 1up page, before seeing it here. So you went with only arcade games? That surprises me considering how different the Genesis Moonwalker is compared to the arcade version. It's 2 completely different games. Both good though. 

Congrats though, enjoy.

Circling back to this post for an update since I'm running Retrorama Rampage 128gb now: I've got Moonwalker for arcade, Genesis and Master System now. I may have already mentioned that but if I did, oh well lol

It's actually quite a nice monitor. 5:4 ratio and I got it for free from the IT guy at work as they're getting rid of all non 16:9 monitors. Took me a while to figure out how to save the configuration after turning off overlays but now have that sorted. I'm procrastinating over which joysticks to buy at the moment. Thinking of going with a couple of Sanwa sticks but they're about £60 each. :lol:

I have no idea why the mobile version of the site is making me quote you, so sorry about that. 

In any case, I came here to post that my GoldenTee cabinet shipped today which is several weeks early. 

Very excited to put it together and relive some awesome times with that game!

@Dazey you might want to switch to this image:


I downloaded it yesterday and I'm writing it to a card right now. Seems like the minor issues I had with the Retrorama Rampage image have been address with this edit of it.

This seems amazing. But can you add games? When you get round to playing Snow Bros let me know.

Awesome! Thanks Russ! :) I've just started downloading it but I'm not sure that this one will fit on a 128GB SD. I'm actually flashing a 32GB arcade only image at the moment because it has a really cool front end. Something called Dynamic Duo or something?

There are a shit ton of games on it, but yes, you can add more. 

I meant to get back to you on Snow Bros. Yes, I got to play it and it was so much fun! This image actually has the Mega Drive version of Snow Bros 1, then it has the arcade versions of 1, 2 & 3.

I put it on a 256gb card but the guy says it will fit on a 128gb. He says he left around 6gb or so open to make sure it'll fit.
