I play a lot of SNES stuff and its split 3 ways some of its on a hacked SNES mini, some is on a real SNES with a mix of real carts and an everdrive and some is on a 2DS using a flash cart. The SNES mini is great for taking to other peoples houses or if you need to stay in a hotel. In honesty despite bring a collector I think most people are better off grabbing a mini instead of an old system.

Do you play 50hz games on the real SNES and 60hz elsewhere? Or do you stick to one? I'm wondering if it's jarring going back and fourth.

I nodded my SNES so it runs at 60hz or to be more accurate I repaired a broken SNES and then nodded it and painted it, it was stained to heck so I thought why not, occasionally I will pull out the normal SNES for games which have issues basically starwing and an asterix game I have...

The most jarring thing is a master system 2 I have, I put a 50/60hz switch in that and you can flip it while playing

I think this and the SNES/NES games on the Switch has taught me recently that unless I have a strong emotional attachment to the games then I just don't get on with playing some of this retro stuff any more.

Not sure if I've just lost patience or changed in my appreciation of games in some way but most of what I have tried to get into playing recently from the Switch online selection I have just bounced off.

Played another hour of ALTTP tonight. It's so good. I didn't realise (as it's been about 25 years) that you could get certain items so freely so early. I'm on my way to the third pendant and I've already got the ice rod, super boomerang and flippers, all of which I don't remember having until a lot later in the game.

The controllers are so good with it too, it really feels like you're playing on real hardware and it's the real game, whereas the joycons and nature of the switch just feels like emulation to me, if that makes sense.

I really do love this little console :wub:

I've sorted out a load of retroarch cores yesterday, so that some of the snes games I added before which didn't work, now work perfectly (rock n roll racing, secret of evermore). I also added all my Megadrive & 32X games in their own folder, along with the correct artwork, along with gameboy, gameboy color and advance games. I don't know what it is about this, but when I load any of these games up, it feels like I'm playing the real games on the real hardware. On anything else, including the Adcade, I'm always aware it's emulation, but here it feels like the real thing :wub:

Gameboy games on a 65" screen are quite something :lol:

I've kind of came full circle now in that I'm far more interested in getting my old systems cleaned up, fixed (If there are any issues) and then future proofed. So I've started with my SNES and I've got myself a Super Famicom and an SD2SNES so I can load all my ROMS onto it. For Christmas I'm getting an 8BitDo Retro Receiver so I can use their modern SNES style wireless controllers with the original system, and as soon as they're back in stock I'll be getting one of the RAD2X cables which converts the 240p RGB output, to 480p through an HDMI cable meaning modern TV's can interface with it no problem.

I've completed more SNES games in the past month than I have in 24 years or so. :lol:

I'm going to do that with other systems too and I think the NES/Famicom is next.

I still love emulation, but I've got more emulation devices than I can shake a stick at now. Original hardware is really where it's getting interesting for me.

Check out some of our stuff!

It's great were reached the point where old systems can be adapted to run on modern hardware without having to send them off or bodge the internals. You're right too, there's no substitute for the real hardware :wub:

Just got to the Yoshi race on Super Mario RPG - this section can get right in the bin :lol:

Other than that I'm really enjoying it, thought I'd start with something I hadn't actually bought the console for rather than SMW or Starfox.
