Dreamcast CMOS battery

Finally got around to installing a replaceable CMOS battery in my Dreamcast. Hopefully my VM2 will arrive soon, and then I won’t have to worry about the VMU batteries anymore either!

Retro Gaming Pins

Bought some cute #RetroGaming pins on #Etsy a few weeks ago, they really look great!  I was planning to stick them on my backpack, but now I’m a bit worried they’ll get damaged in the rain/snow so I might stick them on my camera bag instead.

Lemmings 🎮

I’ve recently been enjoying the Amiga version of Lemmings on my retro handheld. It’s surprising how many solutions to the levels I still remember after so many years!

Playing without a mouse is a bit tricky, but I’ve set the analog stick to move the mouse quickly, and then the d-pad moves it in smaller increments for fine adjustments. I also mapped some buttons to the keyboard controls for quickly switching between skills.

As someone that grew up with the MS-DOS version, it’s interesting to hear how the music was supposed to sound!

Galaxy II by Epoch (1981) VFD

I removed the plastic shell and magnification lens to get up close to the VFD with my camera, but I left the colored film that’s used to tint parts of the display. It makes an interesting honeycomb pattern in the macro lens!

Trying to sync up the exposure time with the flickery animations was quite a challenge.

The Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap

I’ve recently started playing The Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap on my RG351V. Really enjoying it so far!

I tried to play it a few years ago on my Nintendo 3DS, but I really prefer this vertical form factor. It feels more like an original GameBoy or GBA SP, and RetroAchievements is really nice to have.

Plus, this handheld runs Linux, so I set a cron job to automatically back up the save RAM over WiFi 😎

I recently bought some Game Boy DMG-01 colored buttons from @SakuraRetroModding on Etsy for my Anbernic RG351V and they look amazing!
