5+ hours deep in torneko no Daibouken, having an epic run (got abbucus on floor 6), when the game froze and overwrote with a blank save. So pissed. Any way to access sd2snes SRAM to recover previous save?

might also be interested in Pandora’s Blocks, which is very heavily inspired by TGM. Feels great to play too.

What is everyone’s favourite or recommended flux?

I’ve been using a #835-P rosin flux pen by MG Chemical and for a while I liked it until I moved and it must of gotten jostled in whatever box I put it in because now it’s just very leaky and it’s hard to use without it getting it all over my fingers and everywhere flux doesn’t belong. The pen tip is now very crusted over and it’s hard to apply the right amount of pressure, and it’s very sticky flux and I don’t know if that’s the case for all fluxes. Whenever Tito does one of his retro renew videos I see him use some kind of syringe to apply a runnier clear flux to his boards and it looks easy to work with—but is it?

I also use a standard flux pen; hasn’t been an issue… I’ve been wanting to try flux paste, however? It’s also applied with a syringe, and stays in place wherever you pipe it. Seems potentially more helpful for, for example, hot-air reflow soldering. (Or drag soldering, perhaps, even.)

Ok, y’all know I’m not usually into this kind of stuff, but I think this is an ideal way to make a consolized DS lite AV Out mod.

the demo / tester game for th is is also something I hadn’t thought of before that makes so much sense. Crystal chronicles was originally a combo CRT / GBA game, so it just makes sense to play the DS version this way too. Crazy that this is even possible. I really aught to get around to installing the DS Lite AV out modchip I have.

for playing dual screen games on a CRT, a gameboy just makes sense for the secondary screen!
I think an original GBA / AGB-001 would be even more ideal. also would feel great with the touch screen. So cool, surprised I hadn’t thought of this before, though, basically what I plan on doing is just using the bottom half of the DS Lite, which is basically AGB-001 form factor anyhow, so I guess not that far off.
the DMG / Super Famicom buttons and dpad are probably comfy though.

pleasantly surprised by this channel.
very straightforward, very knowledgeable, very relaxing.

I’m not usually into non-oem stuff, but I watched this asnyway, and she has good taste.
here’s a more pragmatic video for OEM stuff:
