I was actually supposed to go pick up a widescreen CRT, with component and HDMI, possibly VGA as well, can't remember what brand now...but I couldn't find a ride to go pick it up. Wasn't free...$10 plus whatever gas money for the ride. Oh well...there seem to be quite a few of those around locally too tongue.gif I am not sure I really have the room for it right now anyway...I've been considering some type of converter box, need to do component to VGA, and composite to VGA...I have a couple decent CRT monitors around. Not sure about input lag or lightguns with such a setup though, so I guess more research before I buy anything.

Crash bandicoots huge adventure from GBA running on a CRT with a "CRT shadder" on Lakka : D

HDD is a mechanical 250GB WD Black and main board is a Pico ITX , Total power draw playing the game for the PC is 12V @ 800mA / 9.6W . I plan to build the PC into the monitor case as there is plenty of room and have it as a dedicated retro system

Have a mini PCIe WiFi/Bluetooth module on the way for a controller and network access

You're better off without. Those HD CRTs have amazing refresh rates, better than plasma and especially LCD, but they're terrible for retro consoles.

So these controllers were not that common? I need to get R1 working and screws for it.

I only just found this site and really wish I had found it sooner. Or at least if I did find it previously knew the significance of what I was looking at.

The site is redump.org. It's kind of "preservation society" for any/all game-related optical media. They have their "official" way of creating the 1:1 copy of a disc to generate the right hash and DAT files with MD5 and SHA-1 hashes. It's just a database of hashes, like I said. No copyright violations of any kind. That's would violate their own stated purpose.

From the site's wiki:
Quote:
Redump.org is a disc preservation database and internet community dedicated to collecting precise and accurate information about every video game ever released on optical media of any system. The goal is to make blueprints of the data on console and PC game discs. Redump.org also provides guides to ensure the dumps are correctly done. Users of the website who follow the guides correctly are encouraged to share their results to help build the database. Multiple dumps of games with the same serial number by different people are collected to ensure the same results are gathered, which help correct any incorrect dumps in the database as well as to help recognize alternate versions of the same game.

I only mention it because I'm finally starting to research a proper way to rip all my games. PS1 and PS2 must add up close to 300 by now. So I wanted to make sure I knew how to properly make the copy and gathered the requisite information on this initial run-through. I mean the last thing I want to do is rip them all again when the collection is even larger...

On a semi-related note, I'm almost done with my "magic batch file" which will highly auto-mate the ripping process. It will automatically detect what kind of disc it is (DVD or CD) and rip accordingly then do a verify of the image against the disc, generate the hash file file of the produced image file and store the information in a log file. And possibly record version information should a SYSTEM.CNF file be present on the disc but that might be relegated to a "bonus", I haven't decided it.

Actually, assuming i could generate the same hash files as redump (not confirmed yet) I was going to see if I could use the redump DAT file to identify ROMs by hash. Although there are already utilities for that so my doing so would be more of an exercise thing than anything else.

I don't know if anybody here would be interested in this "magic batch file" or not but it seems like all this work should be documented/shared in some fashion. Most likely I'll put it up on github just for tracking purposes if nothing else.

And it's probably not necessary to re-iterate but I will anyway: I'm just talking about archiving my own private collection, which will remain private. It's no worse than ripping a DVD movie collection, which is discussed at length on OCN. So I'm just assuming it's okay to talk about.

Sorry guys, I was out of town yesterday.

Since everyone doesn't seem too enthusiastic about writing anything for the club, I'll just post some videos and convention information for now.

subassy, what you're doing to rip your games is really cool, I recall there is a database (illegal) of Sega Dreamcast GD-ROM dumps.. of course, you can't actually burn any of them since no DVD/CD burner has ever supported the GD-ROM format. I think it was called the Dreamcast Revival project or something like that. The dumps are mainly used to play DC games in emulators without cutting anything out (pirates encoded stuff like videos on DC games into a lossy format to fit them onto a CD-R...) Unfortunately, I don't really have many disc based games, I don't have room for them, so the batch file wouldn't be very useful to me.

As far as retro TVs go this video serves to explain it pretty well:




You really don't want that widescreen CRT or an HD CRT. The games will have many problems with video as you can see above.

Personally, I lucked out because back in the day my mom bought an Insignia CRT from Best Buy... it's pretty big, it's a flat CRT and it has component and S-video input. I got S-video cables for my PS2, Dreamcast and most recently, Saturn. The games all look pretty great.

You must be thinking of Dreamcast Resurrection (DCRes) and or ReviveDC. Both had some of the same people working on them, and provided some of the best rips out there. If you ever find anything that you can trace back to TuxTheWise, Atreyu187, or ComradeSnarky, it should be excellent.

Yep, that was it. smile.gif

EDIT: I added some stuff to those posts at the beginning of the thread. If something is really noteworthy (a video or something) post it here and we'll see about adding it to those posts.
