Off topic, but dope to see another New Yorker in the forum!

New York represent!!!

I went to another Best Buy this weekend close on my home and they had eight or nine of them behind the counter. Funny seeing theses and the Switch next to each other. The top two Nintendo things that were sold out for awhile all stocked up a couple months later.

It's funny because Amazon is still perpetually out, but stores now occasionally have them. What it means is that the wanne-be scalpers are all lazy fucks ;)

Don't think the profit margins are high enough this time around.

There should only be any profit margins at all for selling to lazy people who can't be arsed to go to a brick and mortar store at this point.

Got one a couple weeks ago, hacked it to add arcade beatemups. Gave up on arcade beatemups and moved back to playing Battle Tetris and Super Bomberman on it. I just got in my USB OTG Passthrough adapter so I can have all the SNES games on the SNES classic and arcade games on the USB drive.

Yeah, I’ve kept mine stock. I’ve looked into hacking it. Maybe I still will. For the time being, I’m leaving it the way it is.

We should play a 2-player beat ‘em up online some time. I’m not sure how to go about doing that, but there’s got to be a way. Maybe ggpo? I’m always down for an old school arcade beat em up. 8)

What's the process on hacking this thing? Is it hard? Can you add games like GBA and such?

Would be down to a do a 2-player beat em up too ... not sure what the easiest/best way to do it would be though. I'm also on a Mac, which I'm sure adds some issues to the mix.

Look up hakchi2. Then cross check that with the USB bypass method.

I don't know the added steps involved but read that it is very easy. Hakchi2 goes on the SNES itself, but you don't otherwise mod it. Your USB bypass is plugged in and then your power off the back to the wall. The bypass jack on the side gets a full install of many folders of all your favorite roms for any system that'll take to it within hardware limits. The system will boot hakchi2, then you select the external thumb drive from the menu and you can fire up whatever you like from there. That's the basics of it.

I tried hacking mine tonight with Hackchi.

The box art finder just timed out so I spent an hour painstakingly collecting manual box art from google.

Then I found it couldn't find the driver to intall it when dumping the kernal so I've no idea if it dumped it correctly.

I'm now too scared to try the final step in case it didn't. I guess mine will be staying as it is.
