Re: Polymega/Retroblox: New 1080p "Clone" 2600 to PCE-CD to

I wonder if there's a workaround there. The Retron 5 won't accept those translation patches with special requirements... but you can create a new patch out of a pre-patched ROM, and then have success. Those are .ips patches for cartridges, I dunno how different ISO based stuff is.

https://www.polymega.com/2019/06/05/light-gun/

$99 light gun compatible with all systems supported by Polymega. No setup or sensor bar needed. Just plug it in via USB and it works. They partnered with a recent Kickstarter to get this made. Polymega is charging approximately what it cost to get one from the Kickstarter.

This could be what finally causes me to get rid of my CRTs. Very cool tech indeed!

Some solid info coming out of E3. MVG had a hands on & got answers on emulators licensed. For those of you that maybe don't know, MVG ported several emulators to oXbox, 360, & Switch. Sure I'm missing more. There's a good possibility many of us have played games on his conversions. Reputable source. 'Nuff said there. Vid:

We might see an honest-to-god release date soon! Like maybe for realsies this time. https://twitter.com/polymegaHQ/status/1 ... 9897047041

EDIT: 12-16-2019 is showing as the availability date if you try to preorder now. That is an oddly specific date and doesn't seem like a placeholder. Maybe early backers will see theirs sooner?
