I use the same method, and it's as easy as you can get. Will burn .CDI images just like any other image file. The only failed burn I've had using this method is when my burner fell off the top of my PC case mid-burn lol

There's this neighborhood about 15 minutes from where I live that has an insane number of yard sales every weekend. And this one guy seems to have a sale either every weekend or almost every weekend and his PS2/xbox/etc games area $1 each (sometimes less). It's kind of a chaotic setup inside his garage. Some stuff is organized some stuff isn't.

So I'm browsing through some random unorganized rubber bins and find a jewel case that says Shenmue on it. I got really excited...

Then I open the case and...it's two CD-Rs than say Shenmue disc 1/Shenmue disc 2. So some where some one probably has a whole shelf of carefully crafted jewel cases with printed out artwork of the games containing these burned copies of games.

I tried to point out to the guy it was a boot leg and ask if he had the real game. He probably didn't understand what I was saying and ended up selling me the boot leg, a number of real games and one or two other items for $10. So it turned out to be a good deal for me. Although I don't really care if I have a boot leg Shenmue rolleyes.gif

Funny enough, I have done the same thing with a few Dreamcast games I will never find...not that I would ever sell them, but still. If I find the games, I would buy them, but for now it beats a blank CDR in some random case somewhere. At least this way I can keep the games on the same shelf as my legit games without it looking too off. I am even going to get some CD labels for the discs so they too look better. If I ever find the games, then I have a backup to play as well, I guess. I would much rather have the originals. No different than people doing repros of cartridge games, IMO.

Wow.

I can't say I'm surprised, considering how much some of these Dreamcast games are fetching now. Shenmue seems to be about $50 on Amazon, minimum. I suppose if you really love that game (I don't), then it might be worth it just to own a copy.

Still, that's mental, I don't print labels or art for my burned games, who does that? What's the point? It's not like you can take it and sell it for what the game is worth, since it's a fake.

Repro carts are a little different, I think, because you're making a cartridge in the style of a region where it was never released, and usually the game wasn't originally in English either, but you can use a fan patch for it. I got a Seiken Densetsu 3 (aka Secret of Mana 2) repro cart for SNES recently and am playing through it. I also have a Bahamut Lagoon repro on the way, it should be here later today. Really excited for it.

I got Fallout 3 for $10 yesterday. I know it's not really retro. But since I've been doing PC games since around 2008, and before that I did nothing but play MMOs all the time, there's a lot of Xbox 360 games I missed. I recently got a 360 for a great price, and already have 4 controllers and about 15 games on disc, and 5 more I got from the arcade (like Guardian Heroes remake). I'm trying to get the console exclusive games for it, that you can't get on PC (yes I'm aware Fallout 3 was on PC- I just never really thought to play it on PC when it was new). So I've got stuff like Gears of War etc to play through. The only game I've finished so far is Tales of Vesperia which I absolutely loved, I thought it was fantastic. Looking to get a cheap PS3 in the next few months and get the other Tales games for it. I don't think 360 is retro yet, but in around 5 more years it probably will be.

It really only takes a minute or two to print the art work, I usually do it while waiting on the disc to finish burning which takes far longer. Like I said, it just makes it so I can put the burnt discs on the same shelf as my normal games so it doesn't look so out of place, and can tell what game it is by looking at the spine of the cases. I used to have a CD book full of Dreamcast games, years ago, but that wasn't fun to keep organized and find what you are looking for. And I find the discs stay in better condition when kept in there own individual case.

Also, I wouldn't mind getting a 360 and PS3 over the next year or two, now that they are getting cheaper and cheaper. I still have some Xbox 360 games left over as well from when I sold my last 360...was only going to get a few bucks per game, so I held on to a few of them that I thought were worth more. I would get a Saturn or Gamecube before I spent money on another 360 or a PS3 though.

I recently received my PS2 and Saturn, which I'd like to add to the list. thumb.gif

I got the PS2 with the cables and original controller (of course), but also a PS1 controller for some strange reason, a broadband adapter, a Sony first-party memory card, and the box for just $30!

I wasn't actively looking for a Saturn, but it's in great shape and only cost me $60 even, so I went for it.

Nice! Told you the PS2 is worth grabbing right now, considering how low the price is. I would have liked to get a phat PS2 instead of the slim one I got...I like the shelf...is that new as well? And nice price on the Saturn you got. thumb.gif

I've had the shelves for a while, but I never thought to use them for my consoles until now.
