PostSubject: NES clone consoles   Sat May 05, 2012 5:30 pm

for my portable nintendo i did quite a lot of research because there was no way i was getting rid of my childhood favorite Evil or Very Mad so i decided to keep more regular nintendo and look into clone hardware. i found quite a few different clone consoles out there but im only going to share with you my experiences and my favorite clone consoles for the original Nintendo Entertainment System. NOTE: im not posting anything like the retro duo or retron 3. yes i know they have nes but im doing strictly nes only.

first up we have the Retron1

its the one i decided to use for my nes portable because i found it the least glitchy and it plays most of the original games (all clones have issues with certain carts because of some odd reason or another. ask anyone else but my why)
second i liked but couldnt quite keep my heart with is the Yobo FC

i loved the gameplay for some titles but then it went off and died after about a week. i bought 3 consoles total and every single time at about a week it would burn out. very cheap to buy. but i think it costs less to make Neutral

and last but not least... nes on a chip cartridge mod

i got one just for the fun of it but i would never use it as a portable. its really really neat but it seriously doesnt play half of the nintendo games. their also really hard to find and you have to search forever to find someone who sells them.

there you have it.

straight nes console clones

PostSubject: retro duo   Sun Nov 25, 2012 6:02 pm

ive got a retro duo, wich is a well engineered snes clone. it plays everything i throw at it. i was curious so i opened it up. on the snes side it has a chip where a chip should be. no SNES on a chip, and i didnt notice anything that appeared combined.

the nes side of it is worthless though its just another crappy nes on a chip. until someone builds something like a dendy that has a chip where one should be, I wont wait on any more nes clones.

WOW!

i would love to see a V2.0 that drops into an original toploader case,

even if he has to stick the amp and ppu on a small pcb that fits on top of the main board.

thats good work there, im sure they would all be sold out.

somebody was selling a kit for the Neo-geo MV-1C board to consolize it. it had 2 additional pcbs in it for Video conversion, sound and power. Thing is, it went beyond the normal kit it had a plastic shell that looked just like an AES.

this nes project is great. its good that hes shooting for 100% compatibility by using original parts. would be cool if it came as a kit with a cool toaster or toploader lookalike shell, but if it didnt i still would want one. Wink
