Quoted from FalconPunch:

Buy Wii for $20
buy $5 SD card
Install homebrew channel --> https://please.hackmii.com/
video guide -->» YouTube video
Download any emulator you want --> http://wiibrew.org/wiki/List_of_homebrew_emulators
video guide to do it the easy way - » YouTube video
Problem solved.

That first video is good, and also the second one from the same guy that continues with the installation of the USB hard drive. I got both of those done with no problem. I got a bunch of Wii games down onto the hard drive then the Wii stopped reading discs so I have to deal with that now. I had a feeling it was going to go based on some of the noises it was making.

Is there a good way to play Gamecube games on the Wii if they are also stored on the USB hard drive? I saw the thing called Dios Mios but it seems a bit iffy. It might be the only way. Right now I have the Gamecube hooked up anyway but it would be nice to take a box out to clean things up.

I haven't gotten to the other emulators for the homebrew channel yet, hope to get to that over the holidays.

Quoted from Rarehero:

For the record, using an Everdrive on an original console is not emulation.

That N64 V3 Everdrive looks great, I think I will get one. I looked on Ebay and added up the prices of all my N64 cartridges and it looks like I could pretty much pay for it if I sell those. But, maybe I'll keep them, can't decide. The most valuable ones I have look like Goldeneye 007 (about $25), Mario Kart 64 ($50) and Pokeman Stadium 2 ($40).

Quoted from woody24:

Couple years ago I realized that NES games are pretty expensive. Our local Game trader store was selling a nicely boxed (but opened) copy of Contra for like $100. Zelda was like $60.
Makes me wonder what my collection is worth. I know I sold a bunch of NES games in the early 90's at a yard sale that I probably wished I still had. But know I have near-mint copies (with mint boxes) of Zelda, Mike Tyson, and Mario 1 & 2.
What's the most valuable common NES game? I mean one that everyone probably had. Not that super rare track and field game. Just curious what games everyone wishes they didn't get rid of.

Check out Ebay, search for NES + game title, and click show sold listings only so you see what people actually paid. Zelda maybe 40-80, Marios 30-40, Tyson maybe 20-30.

BUT, boxes, and especially mint or near mint boxes, change things quite a bit. So if you have those they probably will get higher prices. Those would need some more research I think to set a good price.

Zelda offered for $5,000 !

I've had an Xbox One for quite a while and I agree. The menu system sucks. Every time I turn the damn thing on I fumble around before I get to what I want. You would think Microsoft could figure out how to design an interface by now. But like you said, UIs everywhere are pretty lousy these days. It seems the art of designing a simple, effective, and efficient interface is fading. But I will tell you what I think is a nice one: LaunchBox. I have this installed on a gaming PC and it has a nice menu to launch everything - all the PC games including Steam as well as all of the emulators, MAME, NES, SNES, Gameboy, Wii, GameCube etc etc. It works great and is customizable. I haven't been able to get it to work with the pinball software yet though. I think it will do it with enough work. It's worth a look if you would like a gaming PC front end alternative to Hyperspin. I tried Hyperspin and it was such a tiresome mishmash I quickly gave up on it.

The first rule of rom club is you don’t talk about rom club.

Ha got it, actually I was aiming it at the post you replied to. Anyway, just having some fun and giving a hint for those that need it. Another hint... no-intro is a fun google search term.

Quoted from statictrance:

Can anyone tell me what happened? I'm actually just going through and organizing my old near crashing hard drive and pulling my ROMs off... was going to go through and organize them to confirm complete collections, rename, etc etc...

Nintendo is putting the hammer down on a number of different Rom sites, Emu was one of them. They are folding up rather than risk the legal wrath. Google "nintendo rom sites" for plenty of articles about it.

This is a great day. Soldier of Fortune just hit GOG!

If the idea of shooting a bad guy's leg clean off into a bloody stump with a shotgun sounds horrible to you, run away. Otherwise, this is one of the classic FPS games ever. I still have my original disc although I play it with a CD hack. Now I can pay for a clean DRM free version. Happy happy days.

Relating to the posts just above, I got rid of pretty much all of those old games, the boxes, the discs, the manuals. Once I could get them all on Steam or GOG and have it all electronically I wanted to save the space. I did check them before I threw them out and it didn't seem like they were worth much. I might have sold a few on ebay, can't remember. It's all good, I am happy as heck to be able to play them now without having to put a stupid CD or DVD into the computer.

Quoted from djreddog:

Anyone in this thread down for some Unreal Tournament action?

I just don't have time to play much these days and I would be super rusty at UT. But good lord some of the best times we ever had was when we would set up a handful of PCs on my home network and just go to town against each other in deathmatches. Man that is fun times. We also played a lot of Capture the Flag and Onslaught, hours on end, moms/wives yelling at us and being ignored...
