PostSubject: Useful hardware and where to buy it   Mon Jun 25, 2012 12:28 am

Most "sega genesis model 1" third party power bricks don't output enough amps. Most of the ones out there only output 850 ma but the model 1 genesis needs 1200 ma. I recently came across this:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-10V-1200mA-1-2A-AC-DC-Power-ac-adapter-Power-supply-/290372975026?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item439b93f9b2

This's the right power output and the right plug size. I bought one and I'll update this when it shows up.



Most "nes to famicom adapters" are terrible. Most of them have the nes cartridge face backwards and I've even found some that don't work right in the av famicom. This is the best one that money can buy:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/NES-US-Nintendo-8-bit-Japan-Famicom-Game-System-Adapter-/170676476418?pt=Video_Games_Accessories&hash=item27bd1c5a02&afsrc=1

The picture is wrong the actual product you get is black. The nes cartridge faces forwards and it works with all famicom hardware just fine. I own two of these myself and I highly recommend this adapter for playing nes games on any model famicom.

Id love to find or build a pcb that flips the nes connector around. ive already found 72 pin right angle connectors, for topload conversions but you have to buy 10 of them.

Whoa I didn't know they make those. That's pretty cool actually.
