  1. Yeah, that actually should be fine because I'm sure PS2 is a component connection (red, yellow, white plugins). The PS1 is RF / Aerial, but even that works fine if your TV has it, which it should being that age. Its only the much older consoles that struggle on the RF connection. I've realised not only did i buy the upscaler to HDMI, but I bought new wires that were component ones rather than be the one RF Aerial signal for my Megadrive and SNES. This SNES one costs £5.99 and works actually for the Gamecube too.

  3. This is what I ordered @Spacedeck : RCA to HDMI, GANA 1080P AV to HDMI Video Converter Mini RCA Composite CVBS Adapter Supporting PAL/NTSC with USB Charge Cable for PC Laptop Xbox PS4 PS3 TV STB VHS VCR Camera DVD : Amazon.co.uk: PC & Video Games WWW.AMAZON.CO.UK RCA to HDMI, GANA 1080P AV to HDMI Video Converter Mini RCA Composite CVBS Adapter Supporting PAL/NTSC with USB Charge Cable for PC Laptop Xbox PS4 PS3 TV STB VHS VCR Camera DVD :... Its £11.04 right now. Needs its own power source and then you also need a separate HDMI cable but this is what I use for my older consoles like the Mega Drive and SNES. Actually, my current 32 inch TV still takes in Aerial/RF input and the PS1 I've tried works fine on it. Its a JVC White 32" Flat TV. Nothing exciting about it, I got 2 of them back from Curry's years ago cos I needed white TVs! They should really be just over £100 now and better than getting a CRT TV. Whilst you can get way more expensive things to run better, I honestly don't see how that upscaler is losing anything on my gameplay. The graphics actually look crystal too. @Findmartin and myself play regularly on Mario Kart through it on the SNES and you can see the difference from RF to HDMI. It was the icy stages that would struggle and kill the gameplay, whereas its now clearer via that upscaler on everything.
  4. Afternoon all! A new story thread for us to keep everyone updated on all of our escapades and laughs along the way. Finally managed to get onto the DayZ PS4 server on Sunday and it was a nice surprise to see so many of us on it at the same time checking it out @ChaosGladiator @jordie1892 @Nutcuttlit @Luseth . I started my spawn in Novyshovo, or whatever its called. The furthest South West on the main land I believe. Sebba started to make his way to me, but within a few houses I felt pretty good finding some half decent loot, a full police outfit that always looks cool and is well insulated, and a couple of sharp things to bop Zombies - a Scythe being the one I ended up using first! For once, I felt confidently that I could meet Sebba at Msta, slightly North of my current destination. Probably should've waited for the truck, but anyhow, as I made my way I got caught up in a few Zombie fights. Luckily only got cut once and managed to find Seb's mahoosive truck which we then took to a solid car to swap materials and help go get Jordie considering the biggest vehicle in the game couldn't fit more than 2 people in it - FML 😅 After collecting Jordie and then Matt, we made our way to check out what the vendor looked like as Nutty was coming from the opposite side of the island at the same time. We got there and it was a like a gold mine! Anything you could need is in there. I think I like @jordie1892 's thoughts that we keep this locked down, and only really use it much later if it gets a successful turn out with FGers and also randomers. It made me really want to get going into the North West Airfield for more loot and kicking some zombies ass! However.... It had been raining - tons - since we left Electra where Jordie was, so we needed to get warm and dry our clothes. I rung my top out but saw Jordie next to the barrel fire and doing it that way. Seemed to make sense. I could just stand there and over time i'll get dry. Or so I thought. I stood close to it for a minute and then walked around for a moment but was still wet, so back to the barrel I went. Next thing I knew though, my screen went black. I thought the server needed a reset and we all got kicked off....until Jordie and Matt are laughing their tits off as i'm, apparently, on the floor, knocked out with my foot now dangled in the barrel. I have literally no idea what is going on. Everyone is laughing at my still body and i'm looking at a continued black screen. They start pouring water over me, jabbing me with meds, but no response. I start seeing a faint light but falling unconscious again. Next thing I know talk about my clothes and handcuffs comes out. This was what I couldn't see... I have to say, I'm just glad my videogame self was packing below, because clearly I was tied up, half naked and somehow losing life whilst lolz continued. No idea how this happened. Must've been getting too hot close to the fire but couldn't work it out. After 5 minutes, the server did restart, but I was then found back at the coast, so it clearly killed my half naked body through my left foot burning. I still had time to race into the nearest town, drink some water from a bottle, get sick, and then cut myself so much from Zombie fighting with said water bottle and died a second time. I'm now back in a coastal town, on top of a freight with zombies around me - again. Good, solid first day of Survival on the server with FG as per usual! 😅
  5. That is so weird @IRaMPaGe , after sorting out events for the whole of July, I planned on picking it back up again this week! Thanks for sharing pal! ❤️ And its totally okay its not Thursday mate 😎🤣
  6. Picked up a few SNES games last week. Final Fight is an absolute must. Was kind of a lesser game to Streets of Rage but it was still great to play. Always wanted to get into The Lost Vikings too. And any old golf game is a steal. 😎
  7. Oh man, those teams were gash 🤣🤣 Nice game @Macca89 , really wish my striker had more than 32 Pace! 🤣
  8. Whilst born in the 80s, I really wished I was old enough to experience it in full flow. The Disco's, the nightclubs, the extravagant and hilarious outfits and mullets. Plus, I think there was probably a lot more opportunity when it came to sport and maybe making it as a professional in some of them. I'm not sure how much 80s stuff I have but I listen to a ton of music from that era. My probably my NES and Master System's come close as what I own. We used to have a Lamp from my Grandads that we put a new shade on it but the bottom was definitely 80s style. In the loft now, so i'll try and find it and share some pics when I can.
  9. No age to go. I remember watching him back in the 90's in the Old Firm clashes that were insane. A class act and an amazing shot stopper. RIP ❤️
  10. Wowser, that looks like its come a long way already. Aesthetically pleasing to the eye this game.
  11. I'm looking forward to actually getting back into everything Valheim tbh! We may need to look at it and see what to build/do/explore and even think if we need a new world - maybe thats more for when we get to the next big patch me thinks.
  12. A very big Happy Birthday top @Plumbers Crack and @jordie1892 !! Hope you both have a crackalackin' day chaps! 😎❤️💃
  13. Happy birthday Kev! @BoroVC Hope you have had a great birthday pal! 😎❤️

  18. Let's get a brand new thread up where we share what you either buy or even just find from a retro point of view. I'll go first! After Matt's @Luseth recent annoyance of reminding me i've been neglecting my older video games for a while, I had a think what i'd like to get hold of and managed to get the following: I've always loved the film Universal Soldier, so I had to grab a version of the Mega Drive game to check it out. I used to play a lot of a chipped version of Everybody's Golf - it has the best crazy golf multiplayer game on it so looking forward to having a few local matches with wehoever I can get round! I'm also wanting to complete a few more Mega Drive games so Indiana Jones seemed a perfect one given it has 5 levels within the whole game. Again, another game born off the films I used to love. What's everyone else been finding?
  19. As its reset day, lets help some people (including me 😄) through some dungeons. Let's use Destiny Room 1 chat room on the Playstation - if you need help across other platforms, just shout up in the comments and we can work out to jump on Discord too if needed.
  20. Fall Guys is free so let's do our best to get everyone on this and have some fun on a big private game for an hour or so! Get your name down on the event people!!
