Atari 2600 is as far back as I can go....


But I also hook up an old IBM PCjr, to play King's Quest and other ancient games. Hell, even Zork, which had NO GRAPHICS.... :)


N64 sucked to bad

My girlfriend likes o play castlevania and Dr Mario on NES on my HT. At one point we had an NES, a Genesis with CD, a N64 and PS2 on one Setup but thiswas before I had a video switching reciever so i took up TOO many inputs

I've got a ColecoVision hooked up with the Atari 2600 expansion module. Not sure how to count which is older. The Colecovision came out first, but the expansion module plays older games. Hmmmm.

"Here are the systems I have hooked up in presumably chronological order. Obviously the PS2 doubles as a PSX.


Atari 2600

NES

Genesis w/ Power Base Converter

SNES

N64

Dreamcast

PS2

GameCube

XBox"


You might as well just load emulators on your X-Box to save space in your HT...

I pulled out an old Sears video arcade (Not the atari 2600 knock-off) that had Some sort of pong and another game that was sort of like a gun game.


looked like crap;)

emulation is like masterbating to porn. You get a lot of the fun of the real thing, and it's usually more convienent. But it's just not the same.

It would be a much better idea to get a HTPC to do this unless the Xbox can use advanced filters like Super 2xSai and scale to 1080i. Plus you're not stuck with the horrid selection of Xbox controllers.

Stovetop,


What do you mean?? Are there emulators out there that scale to 1080???


How good does it look?? I have used Snes9x with great results but that's about as far as I go with emulators. I'm a collector and like having the original games but if I could have R-Type in 1080 I'd shyt myself..


What is Super 2xSai??? :)

As long as the emulator can detect available window's resolution, and 1920x1080 (or even 1280x720) is one of them, then it is playable. The lastest version of Snes9x does have this ability, but when I tried it last, it was very unstable. I've had better luck with MAME, ePSX and Project64 at 1080i. Zsnes unfortunately does not let you select custom resolutions, as far as I know. So for now SNES emulation is stuck at 480p for me, still looks great with the sprite filtering though.


Super 2xSai or regular 2xSai is a sprite averaging technique that sharpens 2d images dramtically. It's much more than a blur and really improves the resolution of the sprites.

Out of all the emulators, MAME CPS2 (Marvel Vs. Capcom and other Vs. Games) emulation at 1080i with 2xSai looks incredible.

I can't believe someone here mentioned Zork--I used to love that game!!!


I only have my PS2 and Gamecube hooked up. I have a Turbo Grafix system buried in my closet somewhere.


I still wish I had my Colecovision. What a great system.....
