I'm not convinced those tiny fans do much of anything, though on higher end cards they at least offer a decent heatsink. If you want a quiet and cool PC, 120mm case fans are where it's at. Even running at low rpm they'll move a ton of air. Most cases don't support them but they're relatively easy to...

I loved (and still love) my Dreamcast, but I'm not sure I would rank either of these in my top 10. I loved the art and writing for Skies, but rock/paper/scissors combat just got old after a while. I finished it, I think it's probably the best RPG the DC ever got, but it pales in comparison to what w...

I'm not sure if it will solve your problem, but I've had really good luck fixing scratched media with a fine cloth and a bit of brasso metal polish. Every once in a while I run into one I can't save, but it beats the hell out of useless gadgets like this.... http://ec2.images-amazon.com/images/P/B00...

controller port pinouts?

Hi all, I've been looking around for the controller pinouts for the 3DO, and I can't seem to find them. Can anyone show me a link? I'm particularly interested in the ones for the 'gun' controller since these seem to be rare as hens teeth these days. I mean really, it's a photodiode and a switch with...

Wow, you found your cd-i in the garbage. what are the odds? I consider myself a pretty big console geek, but I can't for the life of me remember any good exclusives for that thing. Hell even the genesis ports were pretty dismal. In my opinion the 3DO was basically the Saturn pre-release. If only it ...

Is the flash cart out yet? From what I've read the sticking point of homebrew on the Jag was that the proms to build actual carts are prohibitably expensive these days (ref:http://www.scatologic.com/), and the lack of any good emus. 3DO development has issues too, but they are arguably fixable now t...

No fair posting unobtainium Drax! I'm sure homebrew devs would love to get their hands on the content library (there are 2 volumes IIRC), but I've never seen one for sale.
