• SNES on a CRT

    From Codefenix@80:61/0 to All on Tue Feb 16 10:23:47 2021
    What's up, good people?

    A couple years ago I bought a used SNES from an arcade/pinball convention in Pittsburgh, PA. I used to own one 20+ years ago, but sold it along with all my
    games at the time on Ebay.

    I'm glad to have one again. Maybe it's just my rose-tinted glasses talking, but I vastly prefer playing SNES games on a CRT connected via S-Video to emulation.

    The last game I played was FF3(FF6). Also recently played through FF2(FF4) and
    a reproduction of FF5.

    What are others playing these days?

    my SNES (hooked up to a
    modern 32 inch flatscreen) and it still looks great.

    I'm using the 8bitdo wireless SNES controller so I can sit on my sofa and play wirelessly, what a time to be alive!

    I've been playing desert strike and Super Metroid 3 on my SNES (hooked up to a modern 32 inch flatscreen) and it still looks great.

    I've seen those discussed on the MLIG Youtube channel. They seem to speak pretty highly of the 8bitdo products in general. How's it been working for you? ===

    absolutely perfectly, i switch on the SNES, hit start on the controller and it reconnects within a second so there's no faffing around. The battery lasts for absolutely ages too, and the cherry on the cake is that it looks like a bona fide old-school original controller.

    I just can't fault the thing
