    That adapter looks sweet. I wish a cheap clone console would make a slot. Why can't retron just make a console for Game Boy, Game Gear, Lynx, and Neo Geo Pocket for like 80-100 bucks?

    Life!? ... What console is that on?

    I've been playing some games from ROMs with the SG jailbreak until I can snag an official adapter.

    Looking at that pic now, I should have checked the dither blending box. I forget to turn it on sometimes, and should really just save it in the settings at this point (just on its lowest setting helps a lot). It's just that on some games, that feature doesn't look right, but most of the time it helps tremendously. I was playing Xmen 2 Clone Wars over the weekend, and dither blending was a necessity.

    But looking at Obi Wan's face, you can see the cross hatch pattern. That blends together nicely and looks much better with the dither blending mode turned on.

    I didn't realize Star Wars on GG was kind of a Zillion clone. Pretty neat.

    First thing i would do is get your gamegear recapped. Itís not exactly a beginner project, but iím sure someone here could do it at a reasonable price.

    rg350 and a game gear rom set and you'll have a very similar experience, with a better screen and controls.

    Yeah they need to be recapped so often that I've just given up on playing mine.

    My original Game Gear when I was a kid had a weird problem where the dpad constantly pressed right, so I could only play certain sidescrollers like Wonder Boy. If I played a racing game, the car would just go right into the ditch, and if it was a sidescroller that needed you to go both left and right, it wasn't playable. I still played Wonder Boy on it for years after the problem developed tho. Probably could fix it easily today if it hadn't been stolen.
