    I think we all know where this is going ;) I've owned every RPi that has been released. I hope this one plays my retro "backup games" even better.

    If only I had the skills of soldering! I have the tools, I just need to know whats right and wrong. I want to make this portable

    Is there a big difference, or is it just a nostalgia thing? I got this for a specific reason. I made sure it was USB so I would not fall under and input lag. Are these any different?

    I just really don't like the N64 controller. I despise it.

    I don't think they wanted to pay 40+ dollars for a controller.....

    Because most PC games aren't very easy with a GameCube controller. :P

    That and the lack of l2, l3, r3 and select make playing some games really annoying.

    My Ultimate II + cart for my C64 and my Hanzo Dreamcast VGA box finally arrived after a long wait. In addition, a RGB modded N64 console to add to that (mostly xmas/birthday gifts to myself)

    Also, picked up a 128gb SD recently for my Raspberry Pi 3, so need to find time to play with them:)

    Gotten a IBM Thinkpad T20!
    700 Mhz P3, 128MB RAM 12GB HDD.

    I'll upgrade the RAM + HDD and turn it into a neat Win 98 gaming machine.

    I recently installed 98 on a old P4 2.4ghz, 512mb ram, 64mb Nvidia gfx. Laptop is a massive brick but still looks good for the old games like Kingpin and Halflife.

    Doesn't Win 98 refuse to boot on anything above 2Ghz?

    I specifically took a Pentium 3 purely cause everything that got released after 2002 ish works perfectly on newer hardware.

    Bruh same! Literally bought that two days ago. I would have gotten it today, but it got delayed due to weather. Did you also buy it for the sole purpose of getting Rey's 128 gb image?

    I cannot wait to try it. My only hope is that the image doesn't have input lag when playing :unsure:
