I thought the card slot on my Power Base Converter was busted.

Turns out (according to the internet) that the game I was trying to play, F16 Fighting Falcon, simply isn't compatible with the Power Base Converter. Good to know!

Oh, and R-Type on SMS is awesome. Great cover art too.

My local games shop has a decent stash of Master System games that I don't yet own. According to the owner, I'm the only one who buys them. I'm slowly picking through them - grabbing one or two a week. My last pick-ups were Rescue Mission and Alex Kidd: High-Tech World.

The one game that isn't compatible with the PBC is the one card game you have. :lol:

That's exactly right - I don't have any other card games. That's what made me think "the whole thing is busted!" as opposed to just "maybe this one game has an issue.........."

I do have an actual SMS though (not just a Power Base Converter) so the game is playable.

I'm in the exact same boat as you, Bone.

I only have one Sega Card: F16 Fighting Falcon. So the only card I have is the only card I can't play on a power base converter.

I guess that means I just have to buy a real SMS. My local retro game store has several, but they're all priced at seventy dollars.

Is F-16 Fighting Falcon really worth going to all that trouble? :P

Probably not. F16 only appeals to hardcore flightsim enthusiasts. I would probably play F16 once, then put it back in the box on my shelf where it's been living.

How come the Power Base Converter doesn't have the "no game" game?

lol no.

What's interesting is that the PAL version is actually a cartridge.

So i just finished r- type "had to use cheat code. Game is hard as Hell". I was impressed. The game was very good to look at, a little flickering here and there but very good port.
So far i played games that were on both the nes and master system and except for the sound the sms smokes the nes for the most part. Im not knocking the nes at all by any means but imagine if nintendo allowed companies to make games for other system back in the day? Imagine megaman 2 on the sms or contra damn.
