River Raid, Galaxian I’m in. Is Defender too much to ask?

LeftResponse

He isn't wrong, but he is the type that argues semantics. If you used anything over 32GB on an older PSP (I can't say for PSP Go, because I don't have one) then the XMB menu would cause slowness and headaches. For one very short period I had 2 x 32GB cards in a DUO adapter (64GB total), but immediately downgraded. It is compatible, but can be extremely bad advice for the Phat/Slim PSP's. If you're the kind of person to have many games/folders/emulators to load in a list, I wouldn't. Sometimes, even if I simply pressed the Home button the entire thing would freeze for a while (and that was only 64GB). The higher you go the worse it gets, I wouldn't and cannot recommend anything higher than 32GB (this is from experience). EDIT: As I expected, there are others reporting this all over reddit also. https://www.reddit.com/r/PSP/comments/6spiv1/can_the_psp_support_128gb_memory_stick/ They didn't even have 128GB cards back then you're completely right, In light of this, it seems the hardware wasn't designed to cater for it.

I was interested in the arcade 1up cabs as they were priced very reasonable in the US, but as usual there’s been a huge markup on the uk price. £400 for the uk vs around £230 in the US, even taking into account VAT that’s a joke.

Pandora battery was what I used, but there was no mention of needing one. You did misinterpret my answer by assuming he needed one surely? I will clear that up now, because it was far from it. I could of explained it better, but I didn't need to since the idea here was to present a possible option, but, more importantly - a valid term 'Pandora Battery' for people to Google and find the latest info themselves from the scene. As for the Pandora Battery itself I didn't use it because I had a brick, it can work on non-bricks. There wasn't an exploit for my firmware at the time, so I needed one. I'm not a fan of people deeming something 'redundant' if it can still be used though. I mean each to their own, but you're not only assuming its useless everywhere, but dismissing it completely. Retailers sell Pandora Battery kits, so in reality it's still a perfectly good option to install CFW, just not recommended if you're a techie. Thanks for the updated info on the scene though. This all still doesn't affect me, but perhaps swapping these facts would useful for others. ;)

Freedom.Cry

'phil16' asked "Can't you just run emulators directly on a PSP using custom firmware nowadays?" and the first line of your response was "Yeah, Pandora battery.". Did I misinterpret your answer? If so, why refer to the Pandora battery at all when you answered him as it has nothing to do with his question? It is redundant nowadays unless you have a brick (and even then it only works on the 1000 and some 2000's). I've owned every model of PSP apart from the 'Street (e1000)', and since sold my GO. Still own the 1000, 2000 and 3000. The Phat and Slim PSP's do support larger cards. You just use a cheap Pro Duo to Micro SD adaptor. 256gb works on it too: https://www.reddit.com/r/PSP/comments/7xkhfq/added_a_128gb_micro_sd_card_to_my_psp2000/ With regards to the Go, realistically you're only going to get 32GB out of it because Sony used the M2 cards. There's the size and some voltage issues, hence no adaptors.

Same here you think its going to be great playing all the old games again but they get as boring as hell. The only game that kept our attention for more than 5 minutes was space invaders lol

Astro Chase, dropzone, the Atari cartridge version of defender were all good on the 800xl. I once won a magazine competition and the prize was a game of my choice, after several months they sent me a pretty lousy pool game instead as they'd failed to get any from the list I provided, then eventually published reviews of some of them, including astro chase, a couple of months later even claiming it was the best game ever! Which was pretty annoying. I played the atari console at a friends house once, it might have been a thing at the time, but I really wasn't impressed.

HA........Floppy!!

Dawsy

Thanks, I'm still gaming at 46. Actually watched the fortnite 'Live event' yesterday. While its not a game I love to play often, I really appreciate what they have done and the way they have monetised the game. My main machine was a C64, I was actually part of one of the biggest Demo and Cracking groups Genesis Project / G*P.

turbobuddah

That's why I said 'console' lol my parents wanted a gaming computer that was also a learning machine (lol) comend you on your Atari knowledge though it's always nice to hear from an old gamer :)

Dawsy

My original comment was relating to 70's kids playing Atari 2600's. The Atari ST was way ahead of the Atari 2600 as it was released in 1985, it also as such was a computer and not a console. I thought the thread was more Atari 2600 related than Atari products/games in general. A little like saying Fat Boy slim made his music on an Atari. He did, but certainly not a 2600. :p

turbobuddah

First 'console' I had was the Atari ST 520. I was born in 1983 and Paperboy was very much available as an Atari Floppy so maybe he played it on an Atari? ;)

Hi The benefit of the Pi is that its tiny, and you can keep it separate. I have mine under the TV as just an additional console, to dip into and out of when i have a desire to play some old games. Its incredibly slick, and very easy to set up. Essentially you just preload an SD card with everything and then it autoruns when you open the program from the SD card. After that its set up, you can just dip in and out of your arcade and its connected to your TV on the wall like a console, not tethered to your PC. In reality i play my PS4 and Switch a lot more, but it was nice to show my kids what old games looked like.

Cloudane

Emulation on the Pi can be hard work, partly because it's actually not a very powerful system. It can barely emulate the SNES era. I did get Final Fantasy V working without choppy music eventually, but it took a lot of tweaking with the settings and even still there are occasional moments when it just isn't 100% smooth. For those who have a Mac though OpenEMU is excellent. It's a shame it's not been ported to Windows and Linux.

meathane

If you even get a hint that setting up a RPi is too complicated for you, then it is. My opinion is that they're a complete nightmare. SD card issues, millions of settings, learning Linux command line nonsense, I would stay well, well clear. TBH, I'd buy a Nintendo SNES Classic Edition, and then use the much much simpler process of adding roms using an app called haxchi (I think it's called) on your PC (not Mac or Chromebook). You can use an old iPod charger, or even the USB ports on your tv to power it, comes with HDMI cable, and 2 very very decent controllers. And it looks cool as f**k.

noahsdad

My experience of retro gaming is sticking a SMS emulator or two on my PC and downloading roms, used MAME a lot for the arcade classics too. I call that simple. The Pi stuff which I am completely new to gets described as simple, just do A, B, C, then get X, Y, maybe Z, and do D, E and F, is really that easy. But it does not really sound that simple, does it? Not compared to running MAME on your PC anyway. But yeah thanks to cgap for the good info. I am more tempted now also to get my finger out and get into it, and at least give it a try.

I can still play C64 games (emulated) and enjoy them, even some Spectrum games, but Atari 2600 games have aged a million times worse. They're all so simple and they play like crap.

that depends on if you love a bit of Atari retro or not. I just bought the 8 for roughly this price (which is not much different) and would say it's worth it if you do love a bit of old school Atari.

So I bought this, and had a play today. I really like it. It feels far more solid than most cheap chinese handheld consoles. However obviously not quite sony/apple high-end. The in-built game selection is great, was playing asteroids and Galaxian within a minute of opening the box, and had 553games on an SDcard in a few minutes thanks to this site. Still blows me away that something so small can account for so many games. If child me could've seen this thing he'd have been thrilled. Do note this sees SDCards 8GB or smaller. Of course all the games take a total of a few megabytes, but I still tried with a 16GB card cause it was the first one I found available. The instructions don't actually tell you about the size limit (nor do they tell you supported filesystems but I just used FAT32 for the sake of it). I wasted a couple of minutes wondering why my games weren't being seen by the sdcard browser, and then found the linked page stating the sdcard needs to be 8GG, plus a preconfigured zip of correctly named roms. Luckily I also had an empty 8GB card lying around, but if you're planning for a present please bear that in mind. So to all those moaning about no Space Invaders, I bring you:

Azztec

You only have to play these games to realise we are blessed to have moved on from terrible graphics, abysmal sound and glitchy gameplay/collision detection. nostalgia around computer games should remain in the past. even attemopting to play a ps1 game now is an ordeal let alone these dinosaurs.
