Sega Master System Phantasy Star (Jpn) "translation patch 2.00 edition" (by Power SMS!) is now available on the FBN roster! :)

PS: I suggest to activate the 'FM Unit Emulation' from DIPswitches (Ctrl+F5), the YM2413 improved musics are very cool! ;)

I'm enjoying a lot the FM music for this game... should I mention that there are several patches that activate FM for some western SMS games?

Greetings, Gab75 and dink and whomever else is in this thread and site reading this!:)

  I joined on Dink's suggestion.  I will be doing a showcase video of all of the Coleco Additions.  Due to the simple fact that my childhood dream of getting a C64 was bursted by getting an ADAM computer, instead...I now have nostalgia for ADAM/Coleco:)  But, it all worked out!  I still got to enjoy C64, truly for the first time, within just the last few years!  I had some great fun with Coleco/ADAM, and even Atari 2600 games, which also worked with the Coleco Add-On Peripheral for ADAM.  I definitely had a lot of fun with it, and played the hell out of Buck Rogers SGM and Dragon's Lair SGM.  When Dink added Dragon's Lair SGM to FBNEO, it was like Xmas for me.  Literally, the one single game in all of existence that I wanted to play again!  Of course, I also thank Team Pixelboy and whomever else for the nice conversion!  We just need the SGM of Donkey Kong, some day, some how!

  Will follow-up when my video is done and posted!  And, also enjoying seeing the other homebrews and such added for the other systems, NES, MSX, etc.  And, as I told Dink, I used to dread even hearing the word homebrew!  It takes a good one to get my attention!  Abobo's Big Adventure was the true first one to show me they could be fun!

  I may add the Bubble Bobble and DK Hacks to my MAME 2003 Xtreme Core, as I haven't really added many of those yet.  They have been surprisingly gimmicky and cool, between the two subsets.  My biggest concerns were fixing up games that had control issues, which I did in my last Release.  Over 100 games had predesignated controls that were on a keyboard (useless for pick up and play with a controller), such as Xybots, Ikari Warriors, etc.  I wanted ALL of these to default use L1/R1, which worked out great!  Arcadez2003 and Grant2258 and Gpstar and BigBlueFrontEnd have all been really cool when it comes to working with MAME, collaboration wise.  Sometimes, it isn't just the homebrews or hacks that get my attention...But, also games it seems almost noone even knew existed, such as the spiritual sequel to Strider, made by the same devs, Cannon Dancer AKA Osman.  Quite an interesting game to check out.

Be back in a bit with the video showing some of these fun ventures in action.  Fruits of the labor, so to speak:)

Welcome KMFDManic! :)

The homebrews help to keep alive the old consoles/computers. Some years ago I was quite wary toward them, I thought (wrongly) that they had a very poor quality level in most cases... I'm happy to say (write) the facts proved me wrong! ;)

Awesome Job Gab75.  I have a ColecoVision Homebrew Video Uploading now.  Just refresh my channel and you will probably see it pop up in an hour or so.  It will be Playstation Classic - ColecoVision Homebrew FTW!:)  I go through all the games that worked for me!  Video is a little longer than my normal ones.  But, it was fun going through a good 40 games.  I will do more of these, and move onto showcasing the other fun stuff like PC-Engine, MD, etc, that are also FBNEO worthy:)  Thanks again, both you and dink!

PS: I never played to the ColecoVision version of Dragon's Lair, but from what I see it's very similar to the C64 version. During the 80s I played a lot with the CBM version, I still remember that I demolished,  literally speaking, a "poor joystick"... "childlike aggressiveness" ! :P
