Show: XPWEW Friday Night Pyro

Date: November 20th, 2020

Episode: 453

Channel: VICE Network @ 10 PM Eastern Standard Time / 7PM Pacific Time

* Pyro Opening Montage*
Pyrotechnics explode at the ramp across the stage set. We are welcomed by the XPWEW Friday Night Pyro commentary desk with the beautiful and dignified Kaitlyn Khaos as well as always the living legend Nick Simmonds. Kaitlyn Khaos informs us that they will be speaking on the phone on live television at some point tonight from Masato Tanaka's medical specialist to confirm if he will be 100% and eligible to perform against The Set on behalf of Team Bryce. As we know currently El Demonio returned and will be reserving that spot as a replacement for Tanaka in case he can not make it to the event. So as it stands right now Team Bryce consists of the XPWEW Tag Team Champions Golden Bryce, Alveno La Flare, We know that Masato Tanaka is probably but El Demonio has stepped in and after being fired from ABA "Awesome Bomb Academy", being ostracized from his training camp, The Chairman Troy Clausen hired Coby Caprice to a trial basis XPWEW contract and Golden Bryce is taking a chance on the kid, Big match, biggest match of his career Coby Caprice will be on Team Bryce.
TONIGHT! Jake Awesome is angry we know that, he's been breaking microphones and racking up thousands of dollars in fines. The Gatekeeper found himself trapped at the end of a Net Gun from the hand of our current World Champion Leonard McGraw y'know he's not a happy camper....(The Set's music begins) Well I guess we are going to get some answers from The Gatekeeper right now!

< The Set enters the ring: Jake Awesome, Ruckus, Siaka Lexoni, Jordan Oliver, Chrissy Rivera, Myron Reed & Kotto Brazil ?
Jake: I'm 31 years old. (The Set claps, Jordan Oliver puts a birthday hat on Jake and they take a corny selfie) Jake: thanks, I love you guys. I do.
Jake: Leonard McGraw is 28, granted he looks 48 but believe it or not I'm the eldest between us. Believe it or not I sometimes forget just how long I've been around. I was 16 when I first got inside a ring, I was 17 when I started taking my first bumps and by 18 I was a Tag Team Champion with my Dad and Jordan, Myron and Kotto. I consider you boys to be like my own children and maybe someday we'll win the tag team titles together. By 19 I was a bonafide star of this company and rebranded the entire wrestling industry in my image. I listened to the insufferable Jim Cornettes of the world tell me that I was "a cow on ice" inside the ring, that I would never make it to the WWE with my abilities. Well Jim, The WWE has begged for me and I said no. I didn't sell out to anybody. I may have changed my values but I got over on my own and I stayed over on my own and now I look around at the world of professional wrestling in the year 2020 and I see Jake Awesome everywhere. I see every major talent doing the same things I was chastised for doing back in 07' and that's fine. I changed the infrastructure of this business and I didn't have to fly to Stamford to do it. And I admit the last year I took my eye off the ball but I did it for my friends, I did it for The Set. That's why Ruckus won the Xtreme Rumble and won the world title in the main event of Lockdown. That's why Jordan Oliver has been Juniorweight Champion for 450 days running that's why Chrissy, Myron and Kotto will be future world champions, the path will always run through me. It always has and it always will however while I was building another empire, I simply allowed Leonard McGraw to succeed. Leonard, you are a paper champion to me. Because until you defend that title against Jake Awesome. You are nothing. I am the gatekeeper and come Sunday, I will take back my throne. Count you days McGraw < The Set attempts to exit the ring >
< Golden Bryce, Alveno La Flare, El Demonio & Coby Caprice enter >
< Bryce makes a babyface speech speaking directly into the camera practically begging Tanaka a speedy recovery and urges Jacques Dudley to return and get his rightful revenge on The Set and especially the Juniorweight Champion Jordan Oliver >
< Siaka Lexoni says Bryce is a failure, Alveno is a clown, El Demonio is a fluke and Coby Caprice...who? >
Ruckus: Siaka, I remember him that's Colby Jack, Colby Cheese Caprice. I beat you within an inch of your life boy, Frankly I implore the fans at home to save their money and they should reconsider buying a pay-per-view event in which a scrub like Coby Caprice has a main event match.
Coby: Ruckus, you ever understood the story of the underdog, Coby goes on an endless rant almost until Jake Awesome speaks up and tells him to shut up "Hey, monkeys in the trunk cut off this scrubs mic.
Bryce: Bryce says if Team Bryce defeats The Set at Battlefield on Sunday then The Set must disband
Jake: Bryce, You know me. 4 times you stepped in my ring and 4 times you walked out crying. I insist you turn around, back to your son Stefon, your little wife Jocelyn. Go back to your mediocre life. Because if THE SET wins, We get a shot at those Tag Team Titles ASAP
Alveno: You're on (Bryce looks unsure of himself)
Bryce: You got it!

LIVE CALL: Nick Simmonds speaks on the phone with the doctor of Masato Tanaka following his attack from The Set last week, will he make it to Battlefield...it's such an awkward segment LOL but ultimately we come to the conclusion that Tanaka should not compete but he will be there in an arm sling, hell or high water. Despite doctor's orders. Tanaka will be on Team Bryce for Battlefield as they take on The Set!!!
Tonight: Kaitlyn Khaos says its been signed! Leonard McGraw will defend the XPWEW World Title tonight against Garrett Thompson in a rematch from their Appalachia encounter last month, GT gets a proverbial "Last Chance" match tonight and the main event! 1/2 of the XPWEW Tag Team Champs Golden Bryce will return to action as he takes on Siaka Lexoni!

Nick Simmonds: The Set! Ruckus, Siaka Lexoni, Jordan Oliver, Myron Reed & Kotto Brazil will be taking on Team Bryce which consists of Golden Bryce, Alveno La Flare, El Demonio, Coby Caprice & despite doctor's orders Masato Tanaka will be in action after The Set attempted to take him out last week, but he's gonna still compete anyway despite medical reasoning, is it smart on Tanaka's behalf, we'll see!

Backstage: XPWEW correspondent Larry Legend is in the locker room of Leonard McGraw.
Larry Legend: Leonard the biggest match of your career is Sunday as you defend the XPWEW World Heavyweight Title against "The Gatekeeper" Jake Awesome, what is your emotion going in?
Leonard McGraw: My emotion going in? Hell I've got plenty emotion Larry, Hell I was ANNOYED you barged in barking and hollering in my locker room, I was PISSED you sat down and made your scrawny ass comfortable and I was HOTTER THAN A SUM BITCH you felt the need to ask such a stupid question, But I'm a nice guy I'll answer ya,, Hell I don't know, where are Jake Awesomes emotions? huh did you ask him that? Was his emotion EMBARRASSED he got trapped with a net gun last week, was his emotion ASHAMED that he feels the need he can't stand on his own two feet anymore he's gotta have little do-bots like Marion Reed and Koko Brazil following him around doing all his laundry and shit. It think he should be HUMILIATED he has to stick to a group nowadays, He says all this shit like he's the champion Hell he ain't been world champion of this company since my ass started climbing up the card. I think Jake Awesome needs to look into a mirror and realize he ain't what he used to be. I think Jake Awesome is WORRIED, I think his emotions are UNEASY, I think Jake Awesome is flat out resting on his goddamn laurels. You don't allow shit, I earned this title. I earned the right to be world champion and if he's the goddamn gatekeeper where thats some funny shit cause this belt is the keys and I'll open that goddamn gate any time I please. So Jake Awesome round up your kids, hug your wife. Because you ain't the man like you were when I use to watch this program, but I'm the world champion and Sunday you will have no other excuse. Your the one on borrowed time old man, not me. Thank you for your time Larry, your a nice fella I don't care what anybody says
*Leonard shakes Larry's hand*
Larry Legend: That was XPWEW World Champ Leonard McGraw, Kaitlyn Khaos and Nick back to you at ringside!!

- 3M3 enters (but all commentary talks about during their entrance is Leonard's amazing promo against Jake that we just witnessed, We are getting a very focused Leonard McGraw on Sunday)
- The Vaudevillains enter with Mandy Leon

Tag Team Match
M3: The Vaudevillains (w/ Mandy Leon) def. 3M3

After the match The Briscoe Brothers Jay and Mark bring out a real live bear, (with a professional bear handler) and introduce The Marauder Simon Gotch and The Drama King Aiden English just exactly on who they have to face if they can’t beat them at Battlefield (I call him Pooky)
Mark: Boys, This here is Pooky. She's a friendly bear but she won't be too friendly if you can't beat us on Sunday.
Jay: Oh yeah this might not be Pooky's last appearance on Friday Night Pyro but all I can say is come correct on the Battlefield Sunday and save yourself from getting mauled, Vice TV better let their sponsors know it could get scary next week, Simon we might even have a funeral for your ass next boy! Be safe!
< Vaudevillains English and Gotch aggressively hop around in anger inside the ring while Mandy Leon attempts to calm them down>
< The Briscoe Brothers laugh and pet Pooky the bear as we fade to black for commercial >

- Garrett Thompson enters
- XPWEW World Champ Leonard McGraw enters (Backstage The Set is watching on a monitor with Jake Awesome staring intently at the monitor)

1 on 1
XPWEW World Heavyweight Championship on the line
Appalachia Rematch
M4: Leonard McGraw (c) def. Garrett Thompson

- and after the match Leonard mouths off incoherently at the camera while walking up the ramp, he's ready for The Gatekeeper this Sunday

Backstage: Champagne Clausen knocks on Troy Clausen's door
Troy: Come in...Oh .....what do you want
Champagne: Well I mean, Garrett just lost his second opportunity for the title and you know I've noticed I was a lot higher on the card when I was champ
Troy: (dismissive) Yeah that's how it works
Champagne: I was a ratings draw and I've looked, the ratings have severely dropped since Leonard McGraw has became world champion and I deserve a shot
Troy: Curtis,,I just....I think people responded to your title reign a lot more once All Man took it off ya, to be quite frankly. I give opportunities okay it's what I do
Champagne: What about Jacques Dudley
Troy: Did I say I make mistakes, Of Course and that is water under the bridge, I would love Jacques to return
Champagne: Oh how you've changed, This position has changed you, This whole damn company has changed you and for the worst. I'm glad you disowned me because we're nothing alike. I'm calling the shots and at Battlefield if I beat Garrett Thompson. It's gonna be my turn next.
Troy: First off. I make the decisions around here pal. You and Garrett at the pay-per-view sure, but you are going to need to win a few more matches to get title attention
Champagne: Like I said. It's gonna be my turn next..or heads are gonna roll
- Champagne exits Troy's office

- Siaka Lexoni enters with Ruckus (Ruckus joins commentary and the internet loves everytime Ruckus and Nick Simmonds interact)
- Golden Bryce enters (1/2 of the XPWEW Tag Team Champions)

1 on 1
M5: Siaka Lexoni def. Golden Bryce < during the match Jacques Dudley's theme song blares and Bryce gets excited that his begging of Jacques to join Team Bryce must've came true, the music continues to play long enough for Jordan Oliver to come out from behind, Myron picks up Bryce's legs, Jordan hits his own 'Clout Cutter' but its a 3D! A Dudley Boyz inspired 3D from Myron Reed and Jordan Oliver! It was a fake theme music decoy by THE SET!

< Ruckus is laughing hysterically on commentary that Bryce fell for the decoy of Jacques music playing >
"G-Baby done fell for the oldest trick in the book hahahahaha dumb ass"
< Siaka hits the triple beam kick and Bryce is out for the 1-2-3! Siaka defeats Bryce!!! >
< Siaka gets hoisted up by Ruckus, Jordan, Myron, Chrissy and Kotto beats his chest in celebration at the show closes with The Set yet again getting one over on Golden Bryce as the show fades to black >

2020.10.04 23:23 MDFMKanic Let's Go More Xtreme Amped! RetroArch, PPSSPP, HD PCSX, MAME 2003, Amiga, and More! Core Set Release for Mini MD/SNES/NES/PSC Classics! Many Fixes and Additions, Enjoy!

Release Link way at bottom of this Post!
10-06-2020
Today is your lucky day. I meant to post this on October 6th. But, I finished a little earlier, and didn't want to have you all waiting 2 more days! So, enjoy the Update, 2 days early, still dated for October 6th!!! Looking forward to the feedback!
First Off, let's get some HORROR 'Stravaganza 2020 Edition in:)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4FiuMzQdQw
Next Up
Staind Song, "It's Been Awhile", sums it up. But, here we are, again, almost 4 months later...with another truly kickass Update! There were quite a few variables in play, this time around, which made this particular Update take longer than the norm. These included real life reality and work debacles, meticulous testing phase scenarios to ensure what I wanted to pull off was feasible, with as little chance of buggery and such. You will see some of the things I have contended with, as you read the Release Notes! So, sit right back, and you will read a tale, a tale of a fateful modding trip...You get the idea:) Have fun with this Update, after you get through the Notes, whilst downloading it:)
I have been switching it up between Work, Modding, and trying to get in some fun "binge watching" of TV Shows, here and there. What shows have you ever "binge watched"? And, yeah, there is that joke about Netflix emailing people for watching too many episodes of Orange is the New Black and/or The Office, in a row:) In recent times, I did:
Ozark (truly looking forward to the next season..great crime drama about money laundering),
Lucky Pete (Bryan Cranston is a fun villain in season 1! Show is about someone who takes someone elses identity to escape his sordid past...not realizing the guy's life he took is potentially worse than his own!)
Anger Management Charlie Sheen in classic, crazy form:)
Greatest American Hero (Grew up on this show! Superhero loses instruction manual and learns as he goes, while crash landing in humorous ways, each and every time:)
I will probably do Ray Donovan next, as it is clearly a good show that I simply did not get into, as of yet! I'd absolutely love to know anything and everything any of you have binge watched!
Now then, you know the drill...Bullet Points, then clarity. Time to lift off and get into this Update!
Personal Appreciation for those who helped make 5000 Subscriber YouTube Milestone!
I am giving a tremendous personal thanks to all of you who have helped get me to the 5000 Subscriber YouTube Milestone. The combination of your pure, unadulterated awesomeness, Liking, Subscribing, Commenting, has gotten me to that fun junction in YouTube Time:) Thanks so much! And, I will be doing a 5K Celebration Video, wherein I take on a multitude of games with many many enemies, in fact...5K, give or take:)
TRUE Metal Gear 1 and 2 for MSX Controls Implemented! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Those who followed the Releases for awhile, will have known Turrican for C64 was the game that truly made me want to have keyboard to controller mapping, of which fr500 and r-type were both graciously amazing in helping out with! In any case, I set up controls (most optimal for PS2 style controllers!) so that you can easily play the TRUE Metal Gear 1 and 2 via MSX! You simply add the games, per normal, then run them, and go into RetroArch Settings, Quick Menu, Controls, Load the Mapper, BlueMSX, Kojima Metal Gear 1 & 2! I streamlined things, as best I could, such as putting the Item/Weapon Menus onto L1/R1, Codec on Select, Action/Start/Continue Buttons on A/B/X/Y. I can do same for any other MSX/DOS, etc, computer relative games that any of you have difficulty setting up or running, for that matter! Just let me know:) Enjoy! Legal BIOS will install automatically with Xtreme Injector for PSC. For the MD/SNES/NES Classics, go to Modules, KMFD Mod Hub, BIOS Tab, and install the appropriate BlueMSX Bios Module! Thanks Devarchivist for pushing me to get this done this time around:)
MAME 2003 Xtreme Virtua Fighter Arcade Support Added! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
It is no secret that 3d Arcade Fighting Games run like crap on pretty much all of the Minis, aside from Dreamcast/Naomi/Atomiswave interpretations! Virtua Fighter is one I really wanted added. And, it runs best with MAME 2003 Xtreme, especially on PSC! So, it is officially, the one and only 3D Fighting Game that runs well on the MAME Cores! Hopefully, we can get more added, in the future! Personal thanks to Arcadez2003 for helping with the nuances of clocking it, especially so, to handle the lower spec Mini Classics! You will see in my video, below the notes, the few builds I had to go through, just to get things right!
MAME 2003 Xtreme Hunting Games Support Added! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
American Sammy's fun Arcade Gun Games, such as:
Personal thanks to Arcadez2003 and Grant2258 for helping with this addition. I will likely finetune the precision of the controller, Next Update! But, this is an excellent start! You can see similar revisions if you try running Duck Hunt VS, which I made far easier to manage on a controller, in recent Updates! I will do same for these fun Hunting Games, where no real animals are injured or maimed or killed!
MAME 2003 Xtreme Golfing Games Support Added! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Incredible Technologies' fun Golfing Games, including:
Thanks for the assist Arcadez2003 and Grant2258, you both rock!
MAME 2003 Plus Midway Fixes (WWF Wrestlemania Arcade! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Personal thanks to Mahoneyt944 for helping make this incredible addition possible! WWF Wrestlemania Arcade now has proper, and nice, and loud sound!
MAME 2003 Plus Midway Fixes! (Terminator 2, Revolution X) (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Two of the most notoriously annoying Arcade Gun Games to get up and running, due to pesky controls and/or sound issues! No more! Thank you Mahoneyt944 for helping make this possible to now have Auto Calibrated Controls for both Terminator 2 and Revolution X, as well as Loud, Nice sound for Revolution X! MAME 2003 Xtreme Amped, in the Next Update, will reflect these amazing changes, too! That is currently WIP, as I didn't want to delay this Update any longer!
MAME 2003 Plus Food Fight Proper Controls! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Thanks to Mahoneyt944, you now have the ability to go into MAME Settings, and set appropriate "stop and turn on a dime" controls, to really have more finesse and finetuned precision in this highly addictive game. Be sure to check out the video below Release Notes for more details!
PSP Xtreme Amped! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
First we had PPSSPP Legacy, for stubborn games, then PPSSPP Xtreme, for a combination of stability and compatibility. Now, we have PPSSPP Xtreme Amped, which takes things to the next level! This cranks performance and speed to whole new levels and the NEXT Addition is one of the fruits of this labor! On MD/SNES/NES Classic, you can now finally and reasonably play Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins, as well as enjoy boosted Performance/Speed on a ton of games! One main caveat is that on the MD Mini, running games with PPSSPP Xtreme Amped from the Main UI can lead to a glitch where you are running the game and Main UI simultaneously! Check my YouTube Channel for a Video showcasing the workaround for this! PPSSPP Xtreme Amped for MD/SNES/NES will be in Mod Hub, KMFD Xtreme Tab, where other specialized, non-typical End User Stuff will be stored, moving forward!
The other thing to contend with is that games that have FMVs in them, such as God of War, may crash! You can workaround this, much like with Metroid Prime Hunters, where you utilize save points to bypass crash or non-passable points. In this case, run God of War Ghost of Sparta with PPSSPP Xtreme, get to the first save point, THEN reload same exact game with PPSSPP Xtreme Amped, and you will have a great while before having to worry about any FMV Crash Points! I played for a good couple hours swapping between the Xtreme and Amped, and thoroughly enjoyed some good ol God of War, pre Last of US rehash:) Not that that is a bad thing! I just enjoy the classic GOW, too:)
PSP Sonic Rivals 1 and 2 Finally Playable! (Mini PSC)
This is ONLY possible on PSC due to the Xtreme Timing Differentials to account for with these 2 very tricky games! They are now both quite playable! If you use my Xtreme Injector setup for PSC, you will be immediately in action for both of them, upon load! Results elsewhere may lead to crashes, freezes, burns, and whatnot! Remember, things are most finetuned to avoid crashes, with the Xtreme Injector setup. So, keep that in mind, and enjoy both of these fantastic PSP Games!
PSP Standalone! (Mini PSC)
We have had a great amount of Drama in the Scene. But, when it comes down to it, it is all about you, the End User, that matters most! Our groups have worked on our various projects, and conflicted, creatively, on occasion! But, I need not humble myself by saying thanks for your efforts with PPSSPP Standalone, Swing and Wraith. It is a true thanks! And, also thanks Genderbent for the critical Retroboot Installation Protocols which make APPs much more seamless in execution! In any case, I added my own personalized Xtreme Tweaks to help out a bit with some of the more Stubborn Games, such as Rock Band Unplugged! Be sure to watch the Rock Band Unplugged DLC Video Below Notes, as an example! Feel free to ask me for help, if you have any trouble getting DLC going on ANY game! I enjoy testing these fun things out, for sure!
Install, from my Release, in PSC Folder, AB, AutoBleem, then Xtreme Injector, then RB Apps, PPSSPP Standalone, then simply navigate to where your games are, and have fun running them! I got Sonic Rivals 1 and 2 running a tad better. Rock Band Unplugged considerably better. But, I definitely recommend most games be run via PPSSPP Xtreme or Amped, and the stubborn ones like Rock Band Unplugged via Standalone! Be sure to inform me of personal results of testing between these 3 incarnations of PPSSPP, so I can test, and confirm, and update things accordingly!
PicoDrive 32X Support Fixed! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Pesky Butterfly Mod Effect broke 32X Support in the last Update...All good now!
Genesis Plus GX MSU-MD CD Soundtrack Support! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
This is pretty tricky to set-up. I may have to do a Tutorial Video on overall setup and patching! But, the video below notes shows this awesome sauce in action, especially the amazing Michael Jackson's Moonwalker with Real Songs! I will do my best to make running these as easily as possible. These will ONLY work with Genesis Plus GX Plus, NOT Xtreme. Xtreme is set up in such a way that it favors Speed and Performance for games, such as Sonic Spinball, and is not meant for stuff like MD-CD! Some Sega-CD Games also benefit with Xtreme.
Commodore 64 Vic-20 Support Added! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
This was a tricky one. Now, both homebrew AND retail games mostly run, as well as MegaCarts (which can contain nearly the entirely library of any game you'd ever want to play Vic-20 wise! If I can legally post the MegaCarts, I will to Mod Hub! I will display them in a video, then post on Google Drive, temporarily, if need be...to avoid any unnecessary delays in bringing you more awesomeness to play on your Minis!
Thank you Sonninos and RSN8887! And, thanks robbalvey for helping test these additions for a few hours!
Commodore Amiga Revamped! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Amiga will continue to be Revamped, each and every Update. Performance and Speed is better, flickering fixed up, other fun tweaks and fixes, making it a better all around Core! Thank you Sonninos and RSN8887!
**Driver PSX No Longer Crashes on Restart! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
What is more irritating than the unpassable Tutorial Mission in Driver!? Well, that would be going to Restart, after failing, then having the entire game crash! No more, all good to go now, with ALL of the Updated PCSX Builds! You can also play the Japan Version, to entirely skip the Tutorial Mission, as a great bit of wisdom someone passed along to me in YouTube Comments! Just, after that, game won't be in English! But, still very damned cool! Thanks!
PSX Bugs Fixed! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Disk Swapping wasn't 100 percent reliable and crashed for some more often than not. Everything is fixed now, and I had multiple people test. Disk Swapping works flawlessly and quite effortlessly now! Also, if attempting to run games without BIOS, crashing was more prone to occur. Now, the games that DO work without BIOS, will run fine, without any surprise crashing on startup! Again, Butterfly Mod Effect, per usual. Gotta deal with a break, here and there, with the awesome new additions. But, once the occasional breaks, such as Disk Swapping crashes, or 32X no longer functioning properly, we quickly get off our asses and fix them, if we reasonably can:) Thanks saitax and stefantx and bslenul for testing and confirming the bugs no longer exist:)
PCSX ReArmed .ldci Support! (Mini MD-S-NESC)
Thanks bslenul! This is genius:) For PCSX, which is really cool for multi-discs games, now it will remember the last disc inserted so for example you're playing FFVII (from a m3u/pbp) and you're now on disc 2, next time you'll start the game it will boot on disc 2 directly, no need to swap and restart. This may make it hard code wise for PSC, too, upon more appropriate testing. But, works fine for MD/SNES/NES, for now!
PCSX ReArmed HD Xtreme Suite! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Here, we have a masochist's haven suite of specialized PCSX Core Builds, for you to peruse and try out and enjoy! For MD/SNES/NES Classics, go to Mod Hub, KMFD Xtreme Tab, like with PPSSPP Xtreme Amped...stuff that may not be for every End User, will be there for the elitists who wanna try out the extra oomph up for offer! You will have NEON, PEOPS, UNAI Xtreme, HD Xtreme, HD Xtreme Amped, HD Xtreme FS, HD Xtreme Amped FS. Amped Builds will ONLY work with Suspend or RetroArch Saves, NOT in game. That is a sacrifice that needed made to ensure better performance and speed! Graphical glitches may also occur. Think of the cache being overloaded. If you exit the game and reenter, or restart RetroArch, the game should run fine! I have to personally say, some of the "not too often" graphical glitches I got, were pretty funny. One had stormtroopers in Jedi Power Battles being covered up like a certain character that we need not name, that can't be shown, in South Park! Speaking of South Park, the Covid 19 episode was in top form, highly enjoyable:)
In any event, first try PS1 Games with the standard suite of Cores, then Xtreme, if need be. And, as far as HD Builds, FS has minor frame skipping involved, to help on games like R-Type Delta, which will run way way way better on MD/SNES/NES, with FS Builds! And, I tell you, R-Type Delta looks fine in HD! Feel free to offer feedback, as I have had absolute fun trying out hundreds of games on the various builds, and finding the appropriate and most masterful build for each. Again, for PSC, simply running HD Xtreme or HD Xtreme Amped will be all that is needed for MOST PS1 Games. FS is more practical, execution wise, for MD/SNES/NES. Have fun, I definitely did, getting these all set up for you to all enjoy! One can never have enough PS1:) PS: Blood Omen, like in my Video, runs absolutely amazing with HD Xtreme Amped! I just use RetroArch Saves for it, as I WANT that additional performance and speed, and accountability for HD Upscaled Visuals, to boot!
Boktai Light Sensor Support for mGBA! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Who the friggin hey wants to take their GBA outside in the sun! Well, it was still a cool, not very well known gimmick, for this subset of Boktai, Action Adventure Games! Make sure your Core Option is set to 1 for Light, then calibrate, confirm, in game, and you should be able to simply hold L1 or R1 to adjust light up and down! You can also utilize the "hard perm patches" in my Release, in Xtras/PERM-CHEATS-PATCHING, to make sure it is enforced, always! Boktai 3, you will probably want to English Language patch, as well. I didn't include that patch, for now, as the best patch of it, includes something I cannot post:) I will try to throw into the Next Update, the most appropriate patch, along with any others I come across, that are impactful:)
RetroArch Xtreme Amped! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
For MD/SNES/NES, Mod Hub, KMFD RetroArch Tab for Ozone, the most User Friendly Build! KMFD Xtreme for my specialized for better performance/speed builds of Amped/RGUI (RGUI Loads games approximately 2-3 seconds faster than any other build. But, it is not the most pretty interface. It just doesn't need to load as much into memory, before running the games! For PSC, Xtreme Injector will get you up and running! For MD/SNES/NES, I have 181 and 190 Xtreme Amped. PSC, just 181 Xtreme Amped. I personally found 182-190 still have a few bugs to sort, that make me favor 181 for now on that platform. You are welcome to try 190 with Genderbent's awesome RetroBoot, however. But, til I am satisfied the bugs are sorted out, 181 is where I will stay, firm, for now...on PSC!
Additionally, those of you who play N64 the most, may best prefer 181, since you can directly go into RetroArch, Video Settings, SRGB Toggle On/Off on games like Killer Instinct/Paper Mario, to instantly kill slowdown, and reinstate full speed mode activate! Higher than 181, you have to go through 2 additional submenus, which can be a little more less endearing. Again, use whichever one you most prefer. I will get 190 or higher up, once I am comfortable enough with some of the bugs being gone! These same bugs don't necessarily affect other platforms, as MD/SNES/NES are absolutely fine! But, for the record, there were some bugs in 184, such as 50+ MB Memory Usage, which in some instances, affected certain games. That is completely resolved for the 181 and 190 I posted! It was due to a "RetroAchievements" bug.
RetroArch Xtreme Amped Sound Check Mode Activate! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
This is not as much about the music, as it is about memory usage! Whenever you enter RetroArch Menu, in ANY of my Amped Builds, cool, very kickass 1980s style music will play. If playing a more intensive game, such as Dreamcast, opening RetroArch Menu may cause this music to stutter or slow down. Anytime you stutter or slowdown, this signifies memory usage, sort of like CTRL+ALT+DEL on a Windows PC! Depending on where you are in a specific game, it will be best to resume that game to avoid crashing from it, due to too much memory usage, such as with Fist of the North Star...one of the most cpu intensive games, period! Or, just stop touching your controller for a second or few, til it cleans up! As long as the music stays smooth, you are generally in no immediately or imminent danger of crashing! I have found this one of the most practical solutions for surveying exactly how the memory is currently behaving! Even the built in Memory Usage Detector is quite erratic and unreliable, in contrast, due to how some Cores gather the data.
Xtreme Virtual Ram Updated! (Mini MD-S-NESC)
With this installed, you will now have incredible performance and better compatibility! Doom Sigil will load without crashing, Custom Arcade OSTs, such as NBA Jam and Street Fighter II will properly work. Naomi/Atomiswave will go from potential 2FPS slowdown, slideshows, to near seamless! I ran, even Fist of the North Star, quite nicely...on the lower spec MD Mini! You will have the double whammy of Zfast as well as Swap, along with Turbo Refinement, to help ease along the previous choke points in games for PSP, such as Burnout Legends, which run quite nicely with PPSSPP Xtreme Amped, now!
Other Additions! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
I made the Load Content more concise, so you don't have 100 characters listed at a time, when seeing what content or Core is loaded. This harkens back to my Prefix System which I showcased on NESC in 2017. IE: NES: Blaster Master, rather than Nintendo - Nintendo Entertainment System - Blaster Master, or Nintendo - Nintendo Entertainment System - Nestopia, now is Nintendo - NES - Nestopia! I really love this, as I don't want to sit there for 2-3 seconds on every Core, waiting for it to scroll by to see what the hell I am working with! This doesn't affect Ozone as much. But, with my preferred Amped XMB Builds, it is a little more confined for scrolling sections!
MD Mini 6 Button Controller Mostly Fixed Up! (Mini MD)
Thanks ReyVGM and bslenul for helping with this very frustrating addition. Many have encountered buttons being wonky or off by one! We did some extensive testing. And, with RetroArch Install from THIS Update, your MD 6 Button Controllers, should perform properly. Note: there are purportedly 4 different 6 Button Controller Types that came with the MD/Genesis Minis. We did the ones we had access to. If any of you have ones that still do not work, contact us, and we can help you with the appropriate process of generating a control scheme, which we can put into the install, so you and others can utilize it! Also, if running MD Games with Genesis Plus or Xtreme GX, you may sometimes need to go into RetroArch Settings, Quick Menu, Controls, and choose between 3/6 button there, depending on game. Variables. But, you get the idea! ' Next Update WIP (DraStic MD Mini Controls/MAME 2003 Xtreme Amped, etc)!
DraStic, currently, is quite limited in "what controllers" will auto work with it, for MD Mini! So, this is a top priority to get fixed up, right after this Update! They work absolutely fine for SNES/NES. But, a little additional work is needed to rectify things so they are more appropriately geared for the MD Mini. For now, you can access the DraStic Menu via holding reset on your MD Mini, for roughly 2 seconds. And, from there, if you have a working and supported controller, you should have no trouble navigating, and mapping, yourself. You can also use a keyboard, to make things fast and easy. And, TWO controllers can actually be used, one in each of the front controller ports, as well! Again, this is one of the top priorities to fix up, as soon as we reasonably can! Thanks for all the feedback and input!
I will have 2 MAME 2003 Xtreme Builds, Next Update. One will favor performance/speed, the other compatibility/stability. If I can get the better performance/speed on the latter build, I will relegate it to just one build. But, sometimes, it works best not trying to fix what isn't truly broken! SO far, in my personal testing, things are looking pretty tip top, as far as a nice Xtreme Amped Build. I just need to do more recoding, which I don't want to delay this Update, to do. But, I will certainly showcase this stuff. Stuff Like Virtua Fighter, etc, may run even better, too, once I am done!
I will get more Games onto the Mod Hub, including some very nice handheld games! I have wanted to do this for awhile. This will be the third priority for this followup Update, which won't be 3 months later, like this one was!
Refined Cheat Support for several Cores! I will showcase this in a few videos. Some of the most grueling and frustratingly difficult games, will be more approachable with easy access invincibility and/or infinite lives, etc, on the fly:) You will see:)

2020.10.04 22:51 MDFMKanic Let's Go More Xtreme Amped! RetroArch, PPSSPP, HD PCSX, MAME 2003, Amiga, and More! Core Set Release for Mini MD/SNES/NES/PSC Classics! Many Fixes and Additions, Enjoy!

Release Link way at bottom of this Post!
10-06-2020
Today is your lucky day. I meant to post this on October 6th. But, I finished a little earlier, and didn't want to have you all waiting 2 more days! So, enjoy the Update, 2 days early, still dated for October 6th!!! Looking forward to the feedback!
First Off, let's get some HORROR 'Stravaganza 2020 Edition in:)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4FiuMzQdQw
Next Up
Staind Song, "It's Been Awhile", sums it up. But, here we are, again, almost 4 months later...with another truly kickass Update! There were quite a few variables in play, this time around, which made this particular Update take longer than the norm. These included real life reality and work debacles, meticulous testing phase scenarios to ensure what I wanted to pull off was feasible, with as little chance of buggery and such. You will see some of the things I have contended with, as you read the Release Notes! So, sit right back, and you will read a tale, a tale of a fateful modding trip...You get the idea:) Have fun with this Update, after you get through the Notes, whilst downloading it:)
I have been switching it up between Work, Modding, and trying to get in some fun "binge watching" of TV Shows, here and there. What shows have you ever "binge watched"? And, yeah, there is that joke about Netflix emailing people for watching too many episodes of Orange is the New Black and/or The Office, in a row:) In recent times, I did:
Ozark (truly looking forward to the next season..great crime drama about money laundering),
Lucky Pete (Bryan Cranston is a fun villain in season 1! Show is about someone who takes someone elses identity to escape his sordid past...not realizing the guy's life he took is potentially worse than his own!)
Anger Management Charlie Sheen in classic, crazy form:)
Greatest American Hero (Grew up on this show! Superhero loses instruction manual and learns as he goes, while crash landing in humorous ways, each and every time:)
I will probably do Ray Donovan next, as it is clearly a good show that I simply did not get into, as of yet! I'd absolutely love to know anything and everything any of you have binge watched!
Now then, you know the drill...Bullet Points, then clarity. Time to lift off and get into this Update!
Personal Appreciation for those who helped make 5000 Subscriber YouTube Milestone!
I am giving a tremendous personal thanks to all of you who have helped get me to the 5000 Subscriber YouTube Milestone. The combination of your pure, unadulterated awesomeness, Liking, Subscribing, Commenting, has gotten me to that fun junction in YouTube Time:) Thanks so much! And, I will be doing a 5K Celebration Video, wherein I take on a multitude of games with many many enemies, in fact...5K, give or take:)
TRUE Metal Gear 1 and 2 for MSX Controls Implemented! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Those who followed the Releases for awhile, will have known Turrican for C64 was the game that truly made me want to have keyboard to controller mapping, of which fr500 and r-type were both graciously amazing in helping out with! In any case, I set up controls (most optimal for PS2 style controllers!) so that you can easily play the TRUE Metal Gear 1 and 2 via MSX! You simply add the games, per normal, then run them, and go into RetroArch Settings, Quick Menu, Controls, Load the Mapper, BlueMSX, Kojima Metal Gear 1 & 2! I streamlined things, as best I could, such as putting the Item/Weapon Menus onto L1/R1, Codec on Select, Action/Start/Continue Buttons on A/B/X/Y. I can do same for any other MSX/DOS, etc, computer relative games that any of you have difficulty setting up or running, for that matter! Just let me know:) Enjoy! Legal BIOS will install automatically with Xtreme Injector for PSC. For the MD/SNES/NES Classics, go to Modules, KMFD Mod Hub, BIOS Tab, and install the appropriate BlueMSX Bios Module! Thanks Devarchivist for pushing me to get this done this time around:)
MAME 2003 Xtreme Virtua Fighter Arcade Support Added! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
It is no secret that 3d Arcade Fighting Games run like crap on pretty much all of the Minis, aside from Dreamcast/Naomi/Atomiswave interpretations! Virtua Fighter is one I really wanted added. And, it runs best with MAME 2003 Xtreme, especially on PSC! So, it is officially, the one and only 3D Fighting Game that runs well on the MAME Cores! Hopefully, we can get more added, in the future! Personal thanks to Arcadez2003 for helping with the nuances of clocking it, especially so, to handle the lower spec Mini Classics! You will see in my video, below the notes, the few builds I had to go through, just to get things right!
MAME 2003 Xtreme Hunting Games Support Added! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
American Sammy's fun Arcade Gun Games, such as:
Personal thanks to Arcadez2003 and Grant2258 for helping with this addition. I will likely finetune the precision of the controller, Next Update! But, this is an excellent start! You can see similar revisions if you try running Duck Hunt VS, which I made far easier to manage on a controller, in recent Updates! I will do same for these fun Hunting Games, where no real animals are injured or maimed or killed!
MAME 2003 Xtreme Golfing Games Support Added! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Incredible Technologies' fun Golfing Games, including:
Thanks for the assist Arcadez2003 and Grant2258, you both rock!
MAME 2003 Plus Midway Fixes (WWF Wrestlemania Arcade! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Personal thanks to Mahoneyt944 for helping make this incredible addition possible! WWF Wrestlemania Arcade now has proper, and nice, and loud sound!
MAME 2003 Plus Midway Fixes! (Terminator 2, Revolution X) (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Two of the most notoriously annoying Arcade Gun Games to get up and running, due to pesky controls and/or sound issues! No more! Thank you Mahoneyt944 for helping make this possible to now have Auto Calibrated Controls for both Terminator 2 and Revolution X, as well as Loud, Nice sound for Revolution X! MAME 2003 Xtreme Amped, in the Next Update, will reflect these amazing changes, too! That is currently WIP, as I didn't want to delay this Update any longer!
MAME 2003 Plus Food Fight Proper Controls! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Thanks to Mahoneyt944, you now have the ability to go into MAME Settings, and set appropriate "stop and turn on a dime" controls, to really have more finesse and finetuned precision in this highly addictive game. Be sure to check out the video below Release Notes for more details!
PSP Xtreme Amped! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
First we had PPSSPP Legacy, for stubborn games, then PPSSPP Xtreme, for a combination of stability and compatibility. Now, we have PPSSPP Xtreme Amped, which takes things to the next level! This cranks performance and speed to whole new levels and the NEXT Addition is one of the fruits of this labor! On MD/SNES/NES Classic, you can now finally and reasonably play Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins, as well as enjoy boosted Performance/Speed on a ton of games! One main caveat is that on the MD Mini, running games with PPSSPP Xtreme Amped from the Main UI can lead to a glitch where you are running the game and Main UI simultaneously! Check my YouTube Channel for a Video showcasing the workaround for this! PPSSPP Xtreme Amped for MD/SNES/NES will be in Mod Hub, KMFD Xtreme Tab, where other specialized, non-typical End User Stuff will be stored, moving forward!
The other thing to contend with is that games that have FMVs in them, such as God of War, may crash! You can workaround this, much like with Metroid Prime Hunters, where you utilize save points to bypass crash or non-passable points. In this case, run God of War Ghost of Sparta with PPSSPP Xtreme, get to the first save point, THEN reload same exact game with PPSSPP Xtreme Amped, and you will have a great while before having to worry about any FMV Crash Points! I played for a good couple hours swapping between the Xtreme and Amped, and thoroughly enjoyed some good ol God of War, pre Last of US rehash:) Not that that is a bad thing! I just enjoy the classic GOW, too:)
PSP Sonic Rivals 1 and 2 Finally Playable! (Mini PSC)
This is ONLY possible on PSC due to the Xtreme Timing Differentials to account for with these 2 very tricky games! They are now both quite playable! If you use my Xtreme Injector setup for PSC, you will be immediately in action for both of them, upon load! Results elsewhere may lead to crashes, freezes, burns, and whatnot! Remember, things are most finetuned to avoid crashes, with the Xtreme Injector setup. So, keep that in mind, and enjoy both of these fantastic PSP Games!
PSP Standalone! (Mini PSC)
We have had a great amount of Drama in the Scene. But, when it comes down to it, it is all about you, the End User, that matters most! Our groups have worked on our various projects, and conflicted, creatively, on occasion! But, I need not humble myself by saying thanks for your efforts with PPSSPP Standalone, Swing and Wraith. It is a true thanks! And, also thanks Genderbent for the critical Retroboot Installation Protocols which make APPs much more seamless in execution! In any case, I added my own personalized Xtreme Tweaks to help out a bit with some of the more Stubborn Games, such as Rock Band Unplugged! Be sure to watch the Rock Band Unplugged DLC Video Below Notes, as an example! Feel free to ask me for help, if you have any trouble getting DLC going on ANY game! I enjoy testing these fun things out, for sure!
Install, from my Release, in PSC Folder, AB, AutoBleem, then Xtreme Injector, then RB Apps, PPSSPP Standalone, then simply navigate to where your games are, and have fun running them! I got Sonic Rivals 1 and 2 running a tad better. Rock Band Unplugged considerably better. But, I definitely recommend most games be run via PPSSPP Xtreme or Amped, and the stubborn ones like Rock Band Unplugged via Standalone! Be sure to inform me of personal results of testing between these 3 incarnations of PPSSPP, so I can test, and confirm, and update things accordingly!
PicoDrive 32X Support Fixed! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Pesky Butterfly Mod Effect broke 32X Support in the last Update...All good now!
Genesis Plus GX MSU-MD CD Soundtrack Support! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
This is pretty tricky to set-up. I may have to do a Tutorial Video on overall setup and patching! But, the video below notes shows this awesome sauce in action, especially the amazing Michael Jackson's Moonwalker with Real Songs! I will do my best to make running these as easily as possible. These will ONLY work with Genesis Plus GX Plus, NOT Xtreme. Xtreme is set up in such a way that it favors Speed and Performance for games, such as Sonic Spinball, and is not meant for stuff like MD-CD! Some Sega-CD Games also benefit with Xtreme.
Commodore 64 Vic-20 Support Added! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
This was a tricky one. Now, both homebrew AND retail games mostly run, as well as MegaCarts (which can contain nearly the entirely library of any game you'd ever want to play Vic-20 wise! If I can legally post the MegaCarts, I will to Mod Hub! I will display them in a video, then post on Google Drive, temporarily, if need be...to avoid any unnecessary delays in bringing you more awesomeness to play on your Minis!
Thank you Sonninos and RSN8887! And, thanks robbalvey for helping test these additions for a few hours!
Commodore Amiga Revamped! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Amiga will continue to be Revamped, each and every Update. Performance and Speed is better, flickering fixed up, other fun tweaks and fixes, making it a better all around Core! Thank you Sonninos and RSN8887!
**Driver PSX No Longer Crashes on Restart! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
What is more irritating than the unpassable Tutorial Mission in Driver!? Well, that would be going to Restart, after failing, then having the entire game crash! No more, all good to go now, with ALL of the Updated PCSX Builds! You can also play the Japan Version, to entirely skip the Tutorial Mission, as a great bit of wisdom someone passed along to me in YouTube Comments! Just, after that, game won't be in English! But, still very damned cool! Thanks!
PSX Bugs Fixed! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Disk Swapping wasn't 100 percent reliable and crashed for some more often than not. Everything is fixed now, and I had multiple people test. Disk Swapping works flawlessly and quite effortlessly now! Also, if attempting to run games without BIOS, crashing was more prone to occur. Now, the games that DO work without BIOS, will run fine, without any surprise crashing on startup! Again, Butterfly Mod Effect, per usual. Gotta deal with a break, here and there, with the awesome new additions. But, once the occasional breaks, such as Disk Swapping crashes, or 32X no longer functioning properly, we quickly get off our asses and fix them, if we reasonably can:) Thanks saitax and stefantx and bslenul for testing and confirming the bugs no longer exist:)
PCSX ReArmed .ldci Support! (Mini MD-S-NESC)
Thanks bslenul! This is genius:) For PCSX, which is really cool for multi-discs games, now it will remember the last disc inserted so for example you're playing FFVII (from a m3u/pbp) and you're now on disc 2, next time you'll start the game it will boot on disc 2 directly, no need to swap and restart. This may make it hard code wise for PSC, too, upon more appropriate testing. But, works fine for MD/SNES/NES, for now!
PCSX ReArmed HD Xtreme Suite! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Here, we have a masochist's haven suite of specialized PCSX Core Builds, for you to peruse and try out and enjoy! For MD/SNES/NES Classics, go to Mod Hub, KMFD Xtreme Tab, like with PPSSPP Xtreme Amped...stuff that may not be for every End User, will be there for the elitists who wanna try out the extra oomph up for offer! You will have NEON, PEOPS, UNAI Xtreme, HD Xtreme, HD Xtreme Amped, HD Xtreme FS, HD Xtreme Amped FS. Amped Builds will ONLY work with Suspend or RetroArch Saves, NOT in game. That is a sacrifice that needed made to ensure better performance and speed! Graphical glitches may also occur. Think of the cache being overloaded. If you exit the game and reenter, or restart RetroArch, the game should run fine! I have to personally say, some of the "not too often" graphical glitches I got, were pretty funny. One had stormtroopers in Jedi Power Battles being covered up like a certain character that we need not name, that can't be shown, in South Park! Speaking of South Park, the Covid 19 episode was in top form, highly enjoyable:)
In any event, first try PS1 Games with the standard suite of Cores, then Xtreme, if need be. And, as far as HD Builds, FS has minor frame skipping involved, to help on games like R-Type Delta, which will run way way way better on MD/SNES/NES, with FS Builds! And, I tell you, R-Type Delta looks fine in HD! Feel free to offer feedback, as I have had absolute fun trying out hundreds of games on the various builds, and finding the appropriate and most masterful build for each. Again, for PSC, simply running HD Xtreme or HD Xtreme Amped will be all that is needed for MOST PS1 Games. FS is more practical, execution wise, for MD/SNES/NES. Have fun, I definitely did, getting these all set up for you to all enjoy! One can never have enough PS1:) PS: Blood Omen, like in my Video, runs absolutely amazing with HD Xtreme Amped! I just use RetroArch Saves for it, as I WANT that additional performance and speed, and accountability for HD Upscaled Visuals, to boot!
Boktai Light Sensor Support for mGBA! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Who the friggin hey wants to take their GBA outside in the sun! Well, it was still a cool, not very well known gimmick, for this subset of Boktai, Action Adventure Games! Make sure your Core Option is set to 1 for Light, then calibrate, confirm, in game, and you should be able to simply hold L1 or R1 to adjust light up and down! You can also utilize the "hard perm patches" in my Release, in Xtras/PERM-CHEATS-PATCHING, to make sure it is enforced, always! Boktai 3, you will probably want to English Language patch, as well. I didn't include that patch, for now, as the best patch of it, includes something I cannot post:) I will try to throw into the Next Update, the most appropriate patch, along with any others I come across, that are impactful:)
RetroArch Xtreme Amped! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
For MD/SNES/NES, Mod Hub, KMFD RetroArch Tab for Ozone, the most User Friendly Build! KMFD Xtreme for my specialized for better performance/speed builds of Amped/RGUI (RGUI Loads games approximately 2-3 seconds faster than any other build. But, it is not the most pretty interface. It just doesn't need to load as much into memory, before running the games! For PSC, Xtreme Injector will get you up and running! For MD/SNES/NES, I have 181 and 190 Xtreme Amped. PSC, just 181 Xtreme Amped. I personally found 182-190 still have a few bugs to sort, that make me favor 181 for now on that platform. You are welcome to try 190 with Genderbent's awesome RetroBoot, however. But, til I am satisfied the bugs are sorted out, 181 is where I will stay, firm, for now...on PSC!
Additionally, those of you who play N64 the most, may best prefer 181, since you can directly go into RetroArch, Video Settings, SRGB Toggle On/Off on games like Killer Instinct/Paper Mario, to instantly kill slowdown, and reinstate full speed mode activate! Higher than 181, you have to go through 2 additional submenus, which can be a little more less endearing. Again, use whichever one you most prefer. I will get 190 or higher up, once I am comfortable enough with some of the bugs being gone! These same bugs don't necessarily affect other platforms, as MD/SNES/NES are absolutely fine! But, for the record, there were some bugs in 184, such as 50+ MB Memory Usage, which in some instances, affected certain games. That is completely resolved for the 181 and 190 I posted! It was due to a "RetroAchievements" bug.
RetroArch Xtreme Amped Sound Check Mode Activate! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
This is not as much about the music, as it is about memory usage! Whenever you enter RetroArch Menu, in ANY of my Amped Builds, cool, very kickass 1980s style music will play. If playing a more intensive game, such as Dreamcast, opening RetroArch Menu may cause this music to stutter or slow down. Anytime you stutter or slowdown, this signifies memory usage, sort of like CTRL+ALT+DEL on a Windows PC! Depending on where you are in a specific game, it will be best to resume that game to avoid crashing from it, due to too much memory usage, such as with Fist of the North Star...one of the most cpu intensive games, period! Or, just stop touching your controller for a second or few, til it cleans up! As long as the music stays smooth, you are generally in no immediately or imminent danger of crashing! I have found this one of the most practical solutions for surveying exactly how the memory is currently behaving! Even the built in Memory Usage Detector is quite erratic and unreliable, in contrast, due to how some Cores gather the data.
Xtreme Virtual Ram Updated! (Mini MD-S-NESC)
With this installed, you will now have incredible performance and better compatibility! Doom Sigil will load without crashing, Custom Arcade OSTs, such as NBA Jam and Street Fighter II will properly work. Naomi/Atomiswave will go from potential 2FPS slowdown, slideshows, to near seamless! I ran, even Fist of the North Star, quite nicely...on the lower spec MD Mini! You will have the double whammy of Zfast as well as Swap, along with Turbo Refinement, to help ease along the previous choke points in games for PSP, such as Burnout Legends, which run quite nicely with PPSSPP Xtreme Amped, now!
Other Additions! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
I made the Load Content more concise, so you don't have 100 characters listed at a time, when seeing what content or Core is loaded. This harkens back to my Prefix System which I showcased on NESC in 2017. IE: NES: Blaster Master, rather than Nintendo - Nintendo Entertainment System - Blaster Master, or Nintendo - Nintendo Entertainment System - Nestopia, now is Nintendo - NES - Nestopia! I really love this, as I don't want to sit there for 2-3 seconds on every Core, waiting for it to scroll by to see what the hell I am working with! This doesn't affect Ozone as much. But, with my preferred Amped XMB Builds, it is a little more confined for scrolling sections!

10-06-2020
Today is your lucky day. I meant to post this on October 6th. But, I finished a little earlier, and didn't want to have you all waiting 2 more days! So, enjoy the Update, 2 days early, still dated for October 6th!!! Looking forward to the feedback!
First Off, let's get some HORROR 'Stravaganza 2020 Edition in:)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4FiuMzQdQw
Next Up
Staind Song, "It's Been Awhile", sums it up. But, here we are, again, almost 4 months later...with another truly kickass Update! There were quite a few variables in play, this time around, which made this particular Update take longer than the norm. These included real life reality and work debacles, meticulous testing phase scenarios to ensure what I wanted to pull off was feasible, with as little chance of buggery and such. You will see some of the things I have contended with, as you read the Release Notes! So, sit right back, and you will read a tale, a tale of a fateful modding trip...You get the idea:) Have fun with this Update, after you get through the Notes, whilst downloading it:)
I have been switching it up between Work, Modding, and trying to get in some fun "binge watching" of TV Shows, here and there. What shows have you ever "binge watched"? And, yeah, there is that joke about Netflix emailing people for watching too many episodes of Orange is the New Black and/or The Office, in a row:) In recent times, I did:
Ozark (truly looking forward to the next season..great crime drama about money laundering),
Lucky Pete (Bryan Cranston is a fun villain in season 1! Show is about someone who takes someone elses identity to escape his sordid past...not realizing the guy's life he took is potentially worse than his own!)
Anger Management Charlie Sheen in classic, crazy form:)
Greatest American Hero (Grew up on this show! Superhero loses instruction manual and learns as he goes, while crash landing in humorous ways, each and every time:)
I will probably do Ray Donovan next, as it is clearly a good show that I simply did not get into, as of yet! I'd absolutely love to know anything and everything any of you have binge watched!
Now then, you know the drill...Bullet Points, then clarity. Time to lift off and get into this Update!
Personal Appreciation for those who helped make 5000 Subscriber YouTube Milestone!
I am giving a tremendous personal thanks to all of you who have helped get me to the 5000 Subscriber YouTube Milestone. The combination of your pure, unadulterated awesomeness, Liking, Subscribing, Commenting, has gotten me to that fun junction in YouTube Time:) Thanks so much! And, I will be doing a 5K Celebration Video, wherein I take on a multitude of games with many many enemies, in fact...5K, give or take:)
TRUE Metal Gear 1 and 2 for MSX Controls Implemented! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Those who followed the Releases for awhile, will have known Turrican for C64 was the game that truly made me want to have keyboard to controller mapping, of which fr500 and r-type were both graciously amazing in helping out with! In any case, I set up controls (most optimal for PS2 style controllers!) so that you can easily play the TRUE Metal Gear 1 and 2 via MSX! You simply add the games, per normal, then run them, and go into RetroArch Settings, Quick Menu, Controls, Load the Mapper, BlueMSX, Kojima Metal Gear 1 & 2! I streamlined things, as best I could, such as putting the Item/Weapon Menus onto L1/R1, Codec on Select, Action/Start/Continue Buttons on A/B/X/Y. I can do same for any other MSX/DOS, etc, computer relative games that any of you have difficulty setting up or running, for that matter! Just let me know:) Enjoy! Legal BIOS will install automatically with Xtreme Injector for PSC. For the MD/SNES/NES Classics, go to Modules, KMFD Mod Hub, BIOS Tab, and install the appropriate BlueMSX Bios Module! Thanks Devarchivist for pushing me to get this done this time around:)
MAME 2003 Xtreme Virtua Fighter Arcade Support Added! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
It is no secret that 3d Arcade Fighting Games run like crap on pretty much all of the Minis, aside from Dreamcast/Naomi/Atomiswave interpretations! Virtua Fighter is one I really wanted added. And, it runs best with MAME 2003 Xtreme, especially on PSC! So, it is officially, the one and only 3D Fighting Game that runs well on the MAME Cores! Hopefully, we can get more added, in the future! Personal thanks to Arcadez2003 for helping with the nuances of clocking it, especially so, to handle the lower spec Mini Classics! You will see in my video, below the notes, the few builds I had to go through, just to get things right!
MAME 2003 Xtreme Hunting Games Support Added! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
American Sammy's fun Arcade Gun Games, such as:
Personal thanks to Arcadez2003 and Grant2258 for helping with this addition. I will likely finetune the precision of the controller, Next Update! But, this is an excellent start! You can see similar revisions if you try running Duck Hunt VS, which I made far easier to manage on a controller, in recent Updates! I will do same for these fun Hunting Games, where no real animals are injured or maimed or killed!
MAME 2003 Xtreme Golfing Games Support Added! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Incredible Technologies' fun Golfing Games, including:
Thanks for the assist Arcadez2003 and Grant2258, you both rock!
MAME 2003 Plus Midway Fixes (WWF Wrestlemania Arcade! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Personal thanks to Mahoneyt944 for helping make this incredible addition possible! WWF Wrestlemania Arcade now has proper, and nice, and loud sound!
MAME 2003 Plus Midway Fixes! (Terminator 2, Revolution X) (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Two of the most notoriously annoying Arcade Gun Games to get up and running, due to pesky controls and/or sound issues! No more! Thank you Mahoneyt944 for helping make this possible to now have Auto Calibrated Controls for both Terminator 2 and Revolution X, as well as Loud, Nice sound for Revolution X! MAME 2003 Xtreme Amped, in the Next Update, will reflect these amazing changes, too! That is currently WIP, as I didn't want to delay this Update any longer!
MAME 2003 Plus Food Fight Proper Controls! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Thanks to Mahoneyt944, you now have the ability to go into MAME Settings, and set appropriate "stop and turn on a dime" controls, to really have more finesse and finetuned precision in this highly addictive game. Be sure to check out the video below Release Notes for more details!
PSP Xtreme Amped! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
First we had PPSSPP Legacy, for stubborn games, then PPSSPP Xtreme, for a combination of stability and compatibility. Now, we have PPSSPP Xtreme Amped, which takes things to the next level! This cranks performance and speed to whole new levels and the NEXT Addition is one of the fruits of this labor! On MD/SNES/NES Classic, you can now finally and reasonably play Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins, as well as enjoy boosted Performance/Speed on a ton of games! One main caveat is that on the MD Mini, running games with PPSSPP Xtreme Amped from the Main UI can lead to a glitch where you are running the game and Main UI simultaneously! Check my YouTube Channel for a Video showcasing the workaround for this! PPSSPP Xtreme Amped for MD/SNES/NES will be in Mod Hub, KMFD Xtreme Tab, where other specialized, non-typical End User Stuff will be stored, moving forward!
The other thing to contend with is that games that have FMVs in them, such as God of War, may crash! You can workaround this, much like with Metroid Prime Hunters, where you utilize save points to bypass crash or non-passable points. In this case, run God of War Ghost of Sparta with PPSSPP Xtreme, get to the first save point, THEN reload same exact game with PPSSPP Xtreme Amped, and you will have a great while before having to worry about any FMV Crash Points! I played for a good couple hours swapping between the Xtreme and Amped, and thoroughly enjoyed some good ol God of War, pre Last of US rehash:) Not that that is a bad thing! I just enjoy the classic GOW, too:)
PSP Sonic Rivals 1 and 2 Finally Playable! (Mini PSC)
This is ONLY possible on PSC due to the Xtreme Timing Differentials to account for with these 2 very tricky games! They are now both quite playable! If you use my Xtreme Injector setup for PSC, you will be immediately in action for both of them, upon load! Results elsewhere may lead to crashes, freezes, burns, and whatnot! Remember, things are most finetuned to avoid crashes, with the Xtreme Injector setup. So, keep that in mind, and enjoy both of these fantastic PSP Games!
PSP Standalone! (Mini PSC)
We have had a great amount of Drama in the Scene. But, when it comes down to it, it is all about you, the End User, that matters most! Our groups have worked on our various projects, and conflicted, creatively, on occasion! But, I need not humble myself by saying thanks for your efforts with PPSSPP Standalone, Swing and Wraith. It is a true thanks! And, also thanks Genderbent for the critical Retroboot Installation Protocols which make APPs much more seamless in execution! In any case, I added my own personalized Xtreme Tweaks to help out a bit with some of the more Stubborn Games, such as Rock Band Unplugged! Be sure to watch the Rock Band Unplugged DLC Video Below Notes, as an example! Feel free to ask me for help, if you have any trouble getting DLC going on ANY game! I enjoy testing these fun things out, for sure!
Install, from my Release, in PSC Folder, AB, AutoBleem, then Xtreme Injector, then RB Apps, PPSSPP Standalone, then simply navigate to where your games are, and have fun running them! I got Sonic Rivals 1 and 2 running a tad better. Rock Band Unplugged considerably better. But, I definitely recommend most games be run via PPSSPP Xtreme or Amped, and the stubborn ones like Rock Band Unplugged via Standalone! Be sure to inform me of personal results of testing between these 3 incarnations of PPSSPP, so I can test, and confirm, and update things accordingly!
PicoDrive 32X Support Fixed! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Pesky Butterfly Mod Effect broke 32X Support in the last Update...All good now!
Genesis Plus GX MSU-MD CD Soundtrack Support! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
This is pretty tricky to set-up. I may have to do a Tutorial Video on overall setup and patching! But, the video below notes shows this awesome sauce in action, especially the amazing Michael Jackson's Moonwalker with Real Songs! I will do my best to make running these as easily as possible. These will ONLY work with Genesis Plus GX Plus, NOT Xtreme. Xtreme is set up in such a way that it favors Speed and Performance for games, such as Sonic Spinball, and is not meant for stuff like MD-CD! Some Sega-CD Games also benefit with Xtreme.
Commodore 64 Vic-20 Support Added! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
This was a tricky one. Now, both homebrew AND retail games mostly run, as well as MegaCarts (which can contain nearly the entirely library of any game you'd ever want to play Vic-20 wise! If I can legally post the MegaCarts, I will to Mod Hub! I will display them in a video, then post on Google Drive, temporarily, if need be...to avoid any unnecessary delays in bringing you more awesomeness to play on your Minis!
Thank you Sonninos and RSN8887! And, thanks robbalvey for helping test these additions for a few hours!
Commodore Amiga Revamped! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Amiga will continue to be Revamped, each and every Update. Performance and Speed is better, flickering fixed up, other fun tweaks and fixes, making it a better all around Core! Thank you Sonninos and RSN8887!
**Driver PSX No Longer Crashes on Restart! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
What is more irritating than the unpassable Tutorial Mission in Driver!? Well, that would be going to Restart, after failing, then having the entire game crash! No more, all good to go now, with ALL of the Updated PCSX Builds! You can also play the Japan Version, to entirely skip the Tutorial Mission, as a great bit of wisdom someone passed along to me in YouTube Comments! Just, after that, game won't be in English! But, still very damned cool! Thanks!
PSX Bugs Fixed! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Disk Swapping wasn't 100 percent reliable and crashed for some more often than not. Everything is fixed now, and I had multiple people test. Disk Swapping works flawlessly and quite effortlessly now! Also, if attempting to run games without BIOS, crashing was more prone to occur. Now, the games that DO work without BIOS, will run fine, without any surprise crashing on startup! Again, Butterfly Mod Effect, per usual. Gotta deal with a break, here and there, with the awesome new additions. But, once the occasional breaks, such as Disk Swapping crashes, or 32X no longer functioning properly, we quickly get off our asses and fix them, if we reasonably can:) Thanks saitax and stefantx and bslenul for testing and confirming the bugs no longer exist:)
PCSX ReArmed .ldci Support! (Mini MD-S-NESC)
Thanks bslenul! This is genius:) For PCSX, which is really cool for multi-discs games, now it will remember the last disc inserted so for example you're playing FFVII (from a m3u/pbp) and you're now on disc 2, next time you'll start the game it will boot on disc 2 directly, no need to swap and restart. This may make it hard code wise for PSC, too, upon more appropriate testing. But, works fine for MD/SNES/NES, for now!
PCSX ReArmed HD Xtreme Suite! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Here, we have a masochist's haven suite of specialized PCSX Core Builds, for you to peruse and try out and enjoy! For MD/SNES/NES Classics, go to Mod Hub, KMFD Xtreme Tab, like with PPSSPP Xtreme Amped...stuff that may not be for every End User, will be there for the elitists who wanna try out the extra oomph up for offer! You will have NEON, PEOPS, UNAI Xtreme, HD Xtreme, HD Xtreme Amped, HD Xtreme FS, HD Xtreme Amped FS. Amped Builds will ONLY work with Suspend or RetroArch Saves, NOT in game. That is a sacrifice that needed made to ensure better performance and speed! Graphical glitches may also occur. Think of the cache being overloaded. If you exit the game and reenter, or restart RetroArch, the game should run fine! I have to personally say, some of the "not too often" graphical glitches I got, were pretty funny. One had stormtroopers in Jedi Power Battles being covered up like a certain character that we need not name, that can't be shown, in South Park! Speaking of South Park, the Covid 19 episode was in top form, highly enjoyable:)
In any event, first try PS1 Games with the standard suite of Cores, then Xtreme, if need be. And, as far as HD Builds, FS has minor frame skipping involved, to help on games like R-Type Delta, which will run way way way better on MD/SNES/NES, with FS Builds! And, I tell you, R-Type Delta looks fine in HD! Feel free to offer feedback, as I have had absolute fun trying out hundreds of games on the various builds, and finding the appropriate and most masterful build for each. Again, for PSC, simply running HD Xtreme or HD Xtreme Amped will be all that is needed for MOST PS1 Games. FS is more practical, execution wise, for MD/SNES/NES. Have fun, I definitely did, getting these all set up for you to all enjoy! One can never have enough PS1:) PS: Blood Omen, like in my Video, runs absolutely amazing with HD Xtreme Amped! I just use RetroArch Saves for it, as I WANT that additional performance and speed, and accountability for HD Upscaled Visuals, to boot!
Boktai Light Sensor Support for mGBA! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Who the friggin hey wants to take their GBA outside in the sun! Well, it was still a cool, not very well known gimmick, for this subset of Boktai, Action Adventure Games! Make sure your Core Option is set to 1 for Light, then calibrate, confirm, in game, and you should be able to simply hold L1 or R1 to adjust light up and down! You can also utilize the "hard perm patches" in my Release, in Xtras/PERM-CHEATS-PATCHING, to make sure it is enforced, always! Boktai 3, you will probably want to English Language patch, as well. I didn't include that patch, for now, as the best patch of it, includes something I cannot post:) I will try to throw into the Next Update, the most appropriate patch, along with any others I come across, that are impactful:)
RetroArch Xtreme Amped! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
For MD/SNES/NES, Mod Hub, KMFD RetroArch Tab for Ozone, the most User Friendly Build! KMFD Xtreme for my specialized for better performance/speed builds of Amped/RGUI (RGUI Loads games approximately 2-3 seconds faster than any other build. But, it is not the most pretty interface. It just doesn't need to load as much into memory, before running the games! For PSC, Xtreme Injector will get you up and running! For MD/SNES/NES, I have 181 and 190 Xtreme Amped. PSC, just 181 Xtreme Amped. I personally found 182-190 still have a few bugs to sort, that make me favor 181 for now on that platform. You are welcome to try 190 with Genderbent's awesome RetroBoot, however. But, til I am satisfied the bugs are sorted out, 181 is where I will stay, firm, for now...on PSC!
Additionally, those of you who play N64 the most, may best prefer 181, since you can directly go into RetroArch, Video Settings, SRGB Toggle On/Off on games like Killer Instinct/Paper Mario, to instantly kill slowdown, and reinstate full speed mode activate! Higher than 181, you have to go through 2 additional submenus, which can be a little more less endearing. Again, use whichever one you most prefer. I will get 190 or higher up, once I am comfortable enough with some of the bugs being gone! These same bugs don't necessarily affect other platforms, as MD/SNES/NES are absolutely fine! But, for the record, there were some bugs in 184, such as 50+ MB Memory Usage, which in some instances, affected certain games. That is completely resolved for the 181 and 190 I posted! It was due to a "RetroAchievements" bug.
RetroArch Xtreme Amped Sound Check Mode Activate! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
This is not as much about the music, as it is about memory usage! Whenever you enter RetroArch Menu, in ANY of my Amped Builds, cool, very kickass 1980s style music will play. If playing a more intensive game, such as Dreamcast, opening RetroArch Menu may cause this music to stutter or slow down. Anytime you stutter or slowdown, this signifies memory usage, sort of like CTRL+ALT+DEL on a Windows PC! Depending on where you are in a specific game, it will be best to resume that game to avoid crashing from it, due to too much memory usage, such as with Fist of the North Star...one of the most cpu intensive games, period! Or, just stop touching your controller for a second or few, til it cleans up! As long as the music stays smooth, you are generally in no immediately or imminent danger of crashing! I have found this one of the most practical solutions for surveying exactly how the memory is currently behaving! Even the built in Memory Usage Detector is quite erratic and unreliable, in contrast, due to how some Cores gather the data.
Xtreme Virtual Ram Updated! (Mini MD-S-NESC)
With this installed, you will now have incredible performance and better compatibility! Doom Sigil will load without crashing, Custom Arcade OSTs, such as NBA Jam and Street Fighter II will properly work. Naomi/Atomiswave will go from potential 2FPS slowdown, slideshows, to near seamless! I ran, even Fist of the North Star, quite nicely...on the lower spec MD Mini! You will have the double whammy of Zfast as well as Swap, along with Turbo Refinement, to help ease along the previous choke points in games for PSP, such as Burnout Legends, which run quite nicely with PPSSPP Xtreme Amped, now!
Other Additions! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
I made the Load Content more concise, so you don't have 100 characters listed at a time, when seeing what content or Core is loaded. This harkens back to my Prefix System which I showcased on NESC in 2017. IE: NES: Blaster Master, rather than Nintendo - Nintendo Entertainment System - Blaster Master, or Nintendo - Nintendo Entertainment System - Nestopia, now is Nintendo - NES - Nestopia! I really love this, as I don't want to sit there for 2-3 seconds on every Core, waiting for it to scroll by to see what the hell I am working with! This doesn't affect Ozone as much. But, with my preferred Amped XMB Builds, it is a little more confined for scrolling sections!
MD Mini 6 Button Controller Mostly Fixed Up! (Mini MD)
Thanks ReyVGM and bslenul for helping with this very frustrating addition. Many have encountered buttons being wonky or off by one! We did some extensive testing. And, with RetroArch Install from THIS Update, your MD 6 Button Controllers, should perform properly. Note: there are purportedly 4 different 6 Button Controller Types that came with the MD/Genesis Minis. We did the ones we had access to. If any of you have ones that still do not work, contact us, and we can help you with the appropriate process of generating a control scheme, which we can put into the install, so you and others can utilize it! Also, if running MD Games with Genesis Plus or Xtreme GX, you may sometimes need to go into RetroArch Settings, Quick Menu, Controls, and choose between 3/6 button there, depending on game. Variables. But, you get the idea! ' Next Update WIP (DraStic MD Mini Controls/MAME 2003 Xtreme Amped, etc)!
DraStic, currently, is quite limited in "what controllers" will auto work with it, for MD Mini! So, this is a top priority to get fixed up, right after this Update! They work absolutely fine for SNES/NES. But, a little additional work is needed to rectify things so they are more appropriately geared for the MD Mini. For now, you can access the DraStic Menu via holding reset on your MD Mini, for roughly 2 seconds. And, from there, if you have a working and supported controller, you should have no trouble navigating, and mapping, yourself. You can also use a keyboard, to make things fast and easy. And, TWO controllers can actually be used, one in each of the front controller ports, as well! Again, this is one of the top priorities to fix up, as soon as we reasonably can! Thanks for all the feedback and input!
I will have 2 MAME 2003 Xtreme Builds, Next Update. One will favor performance/speed, the other compatibility/stability. If I can get the better performance/speed on the latter build, I will relegate it to just one build. But, sometimes, it works best not trying to fix what isn't truly broken! SO far, in my personal testing, things are looking pretty tip top, as far as a nice Xtreme Amped Build. I just need to do more recoding, which I don't want to delay this Update, to do. But, I will certainly showcase this stuff. Stuff Like Virtua Fighter, etc, may run even better, too, once I am done!
I will get more Games onto the Mod Hub, including some very nice handheld games! I have wanted to do this for awhile. This will be the third priority for this followup Update, which won't be 3 months later, like this one was!
Refined Cheat Support for several Cores! I will showcase this in a few videos. Some of the most grueling and frustratingly difficult games, will be more approachable with easy access invincibility and/or infinite lives, etc, on the fly:) You will see:)
The Videos!
Be sure to go to my YouTube Channel, look at most recent, and go backwards, to cover pretty much everything shown in this Update! But, here are a few stand-out ones to check out, for now:)

I streamlined things, as best I could, such as putting the Item/Weapon Menus onto L1/R1, Codec on Select, Action/Start/Continue Buttons on A/B/X/Y. I can do same for any other MSX/DOS, etc, computer relative games that any of you have difficulty setting up or running, for that matter! Just let me know:) Enjoy! Legal BIOS will install automatically with Xtreme Injector for PSC. For the MD/SNES/NES Classics, go to Modules, KMFD Mod Hub, BIOS Tab, and install the appropriate BlueMSX Bios Module!

American Sammy's fun Arcade Gun Games, such as:
Personal thanks to Arcadez2003 and Grant2258 for helping with this addition. I will likely finetune the precision of the controller, Next Update! But, this is an excellent start! You can see similar revisions if you try running Duck Hunt VS, which I made far easier to manage on a controller, in recent Updates! I will do same for these fun Hunting Games, where no real animals are injured or maimed or killed!

Two of the most notoriously annoying Arcade Gun Games to get up and running, due to pesky controls and/or sound issues! No more! Thank you Mahoneyt944 for helping make this possible to now have Auto Calibrated Controls for both Terminator 2 and Revolution X, as well as Loud, Nice sound for Revolution X! MAME 2003 Xtreme Amped, in the Next Update, will reflect these amazing changes, too! That is currently WIP, as I didn't want to delay this Update any longer!
MAME 2003 Plus Food Fight Proper Controls! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Thanks to Mahoneyt944, you now have the ability to go into MAME Settings, and set appropriate "stop and turn on a dime" controls, to really have more finesse and finetuned precision in this highly addictive game. Be sure to check out the video below Release Notes for more details!
PSP Xtreme Amped! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
First we had PPSSPP Legacy, for stubborn games, then PPSSPP Xtreme, for a combination of stability and compatibility. Now, we have PPSSPP Xtreme Amped, which takes things to the next level! This cranks performance and speed to whole new levels and the NEXT Addition is one of the fruits of this labor! On MD/SNES/NES Classic, you can now finally and reasonably play Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins, as well as enjoy boosted Performance/Speed on a ton of games! One main caveat is that on the MD Mini, running games with PPSSPP Xtreme Amped from the Main UI can lead to a glitch where you are running the game and Main UI simultaneously! Check my YouTube Channel for a Video showcasing the workaround for this! PPSSPP Xtreme Amped for MD/SNES/NES will be in Mod Hub, KMFD Xtreme Tab, where other specialized, non-typical End User Stuff will be stored, moving forward!
The other thing to contend with is that games that have FMVs in them, such as God of War, may crash! You can workaround this, much like with Metroid Prime Hunters, where you utilize save points to bypass crash or non-passable points. In this case, run God of War Ghost of Sparta with PPSSPP Xtreme, get to the first save point, THEN reload same exact game with PPSSPP Xtreme Amped, and you will have a great while before having to worry about any FMV Crash Points! I played for a good couple hours swapping between the Xtreme and Amped, and thoroughly enjoyed some good ol God of War, pre Last of US rehash:) Not that that is a bad thing! I just enjoy the classic GOW, too:)
PSP Sonic Rivals 1 and 2 Finally Playable! (Mini PSC)
This is ONLY possible on PSC due to the Xtreme Timing Differentials to account for with these 2 very tricky games! They are now both quite playable! If you use my Xtreme Injector setup for PSC, you will be immediately in action for both of them, upon load! Results elsewhere may lead to crashes, freezes, burns, and whatnot! Remember, things are most finetuned to avoid crashes, with the Xtreme Injector setup. So, keep that in mind, and enjoy both of these fantastic PSP Games!
PSP Standalone! (Mini PSC)
We have had a great amount of Drama in the Scene. But, when it comes down to it, it is all about you, the End User, that matters most! Our groups have worked on our various projects, and conflicted, creatively, on occasion! But, I need not humble myself by saying thanks for your efforts with PPSSPP Standalone, Swing and Wraith. It is a true thanks! And, also thanks Genderbent for the critical Retroboot Installation Protocols which make APPs much more seamless in execution! In any case, I added my own personalized Xtreme Tweaks to help out a bit with some of the more Stubborn Games, such as Rock Band Unplugged! Be sure to watch the Rock Band Unplugged DLC Video Below Notes, as an example! Feel free to ask me for help, if you have any trouble getting DLC going on ANY game! I enjoy testing these fun things out, for sure!
Install, from my Release, in PSC Folder, AB, AutoBleem, then Xtreme Injector, then RB Apps, PPSSPP Standalone, then simply navigate to where your games are, and have fun running them! I got Sonic Rivals 1 and 2 running a tad better. Rock Band Unplugged considerably better. But, I definitely recommend most games be run via PPSSPP Xtreme or Amped, and the stubborn ones like Rock Band Unplugged via Standalone! Be sure to inform me of personal results of testing between these 3 incarnations of PPSSPP, so I can test, and confirm, and update things accordingly!
PicoDrive 32X Support Fixed! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Pesky Butterfly Mod Effect broke 32X Support in the last Update...All good now!
Genesis Plus GX MSU-MD CD Soundtrack Support! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
This is pretty tricky to set-up. I may have to do a Tutorial Video on overall setup and patching! But, the video below notes shows this awesome sauce in action, especially the amazing Michael Jackson's Moonwalker with Real Songs! I will do my best to make running these as easily as possible. These will ONLY work with Genesis Plus GX Plus, NOT Xtreme. Xtreme is set up in such a way that it favors Speed and Performance for games, such as Sonic Spinball, and is not meant for stuff like MD-CD! Some Sega-CD Games also benefit with Xtreme.
Commodore 64 Vic-20 Support Added! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
This was a tricky one. Now, both homebrew AND retail games mostly run, as well as MegaCarts (which can contain nearly the entirely library of any game you'd ever want to play Vic-20 wise! If I can legally post the MegaCarts, I will to Mod Hub! I will display them in a video, then post on Google Drive, temporarily, if need be...to avoid any unnecessary delays in bringing you more awesomeness to play on your Minis!
Thank you Sonninos and RSN8887! And, thanks robbalvey for helping test these additions for a few hours!
Commodore Amiga Revamped! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Amiga will continue to be Revamped, each and every Update. Performance and Speed is better, flickering fixed up, other fun tweaks and fixes, making it a better all around Core! Thank you Sonninos and RSN8887!
**Driver PSX No Longer Crashes on Restart! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
What is more irritating than the unpassable Tutorial Mission in Driver!? Well, that would be going to Restart, after failing, then having the entire game crash! No more, all good to go now, with ALL of the Updated PCSX Builds! You can also play the Japan Version, to entirely skip the Tutorial Mission, as a great bit of wisdom someone passed along to me in YouTube Comments! Just, after that, game won't be in English! But, still very damned cool! Thanks!
PSX Bugs Fixed! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Disk Swapping wasn't 100 percent reliable and crashed for some more often than not. Everything is fixed now, and I had multiple people test. Disk Swapping works flawlessly and quite effortlessly now! Also, if attempting to run games without BIOS, crashing was more prone to occur. Now, the games that DO work without BIOS, will run fine, without any surprise crashing on startup! Again, Butterfly Mod Effect, per usual. Gotta deal with a break, here and there, with the awesome new additions. But, once the occasional breaks, such as Disk Swapping crashes, or 32X no longer functioning properly, we quickly get off our asses and fix them, if we reasonably can:) Thanks saitax and stefantx and bslenul for testing and confirming the bugs no longer exist:)
PCSX ReArmed .ldci Support! (Mini MD-S-NESC)
Thanks bslenul! This is genius:) For PCSX, which is really cool for multi-discs games, now it will remember the last disc inserted so for example you're playing FFVII (from a m3u/pbp) and you're now on disc 2, next time you'll start the game it will boot on disc 2 directly, no need to swap and restart. This may make it hard code wise for PSC, too, upon more appropriate testing. But, works fine for MD/SNES/NES, for now!
PCSX ReArmed HD Xtreme Suite! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Here, we have a masochist's haven suite of specialized PCSX Core Builds, for you to peruse and try out and enjoy! For MD/SNES/NES Classics, go to Mod Hub, KMFD Xtreme Tab, like with PPSSPP Xtreme Amped...stuff that may not be for every End User, will be there for the elitists who wanna try out the extra oomph up for offer! You will have NEON, PEOPS, UNAI Xtreme, HD Xtreme, HD Xtreme Amped, HD Xtreme FS, HD Xtreme Amped FS. Amped Builds will ONLY work with Suspend or RetroArch Saves, NOT in game. That is a sacrifice that needed made to ensure better performance and speed! Graphical glitches may also occur. Think of the cache being overloaded. If you exit the game and reenter, or restart RetroArch, the game should run fine! I have to personally say, some of the "not too often" graphical glitches I got, were pretty funny. One had stormtroopers in Jedi Power Battles being covered up like a certain character that we need not name, that can't be shown, in South Park! Speaking of South Park, the Covid 19 episode was in top form, highly enjoyable:)
In any event, first try PS1 Games with the standard suite of Cores, then Xtreme, if need be. And, as far as HD Builds, FS has minor frame skipping involved, to help on games like R-Type Delta, which will run way way way better on MD/SNES/NES, with FS Builds! And, I tell you, R-Type Delta looks fine in HD! Feel free to offer feedback, as I have had absolute fun trying out hundreds of games on the various builds, and finding the appropriate and most masterful build for each. Again, for PSC, simply running HD Xtreme or HD Xtreme Amped will be all that is needed for MOST PS1 Games. FS is more practical, execution wise, for MD/SNES/NES. Have fun, I definitely did, getting these all set up for you to all enjoy! One can never have enough PS1:) PS: Blood Omen, like in my Video, runs absolutely amazing with HD Xtreme Amped! I just use RetroArch Saves for it, as I WANT that additional performance and speed, and accountability for HD Upscaled Visuals, to boot!
Boktai Light Sensor Support for mGBA! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Who the friggin hey wants to take their GBA outside in the sun! Well, it was still a cool, not very well known gimmick, for this subset of Boktai, Action Adventure Games! Make sure your Core Option is set to 1 for Light, then calibrate, confirm, in game, and you should be able to simply hold L1 or R1 to adjust light up and down! You can also utilize the "hard perm patches" in my Release, in Xtras/PERM-CHEATS-PATCHING, to make sure it is enforced, always! Boktai 3, you will probably want to English Language patch, as well. I didn't include that patch, for now, as the best patch of it, includes something I cannot post:) I will try to throw into the Next Update, the most appropriate patch, along with any others I come across, that are impactful:)
RetroArch Xtreme Amped! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
For MD/SNES/NES, Mod Hub, KMFD RetroArch Tab for Ozone, the most User Friendly Build! KMFD Xtreme for my specialized for better performance/speed builds of Amped/RGUI (RGUI Loads games approximately 2-3 seconds faster than any other build. But, it is not the most pretty interface. It just doesn't need to load as much into memory, before running the games! For PSC, Xtreme Injector will get you up and running! For MD/SNES/NES, I have 181 and 190 Xtreme Amped. PSC, just 181 Xtreme Amped. I personally found 182-190 still have a few bugs to sort, that make me favor 181 for now on that platform. You are welcome to try 190 with Genderbent's awesome RetroBoot, however. But, til I am satisfied the bugs are sorted out, 181 is where I will stay, firm, for now...on PSC!
Additionally, those of you who play N64 the most, may best prefer 181, since you can directly go into RetroArch, Video Settings, SRGB Toggle On/Off on games like Killer Instinct/Paper Mario, to instantly kill slowdown, and reinstate full speed mode activate! Higher than 181, you have to go through 2 additional submenus, which can be a little more less endearing. Again, use whichever one you most prefer. I will get 190 or higher up, once I am comfortable enough with some of the bugs being gone! These same bugs don't necessarily affect other platforms, as MD/SNES/NES are absolutely fine! But, for the record, there were some bugs in 184, such as 50+ MB Memory Usage, which in some instances, affected certain games. That is completely resolved for the 181 and 190 I posted! It was due to a "RetroAchievements" bug.
RetroArch Xtreme Amped Sound Check Mode Activate! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
This is not as much about the music, as it is about memory usage! Whenever you enter RetroArch Menu, in ANY of my Amped Builds, cool, very kickass 1980s style music will play. If playing a more intensive game, such as Dreamcast, opening RetroArch Menu may cause this music to stutter or slow down. Anytime you stutter or slowdown, this signifies memory usage, sort of like CTRL+ALT+DEL on a Windows PC! Depending on where you are in a specific game, it will be best to resume that game to avoid crashing from it, due to too much memory usage, such as with Fist of the North Star...one of the most cpu intensive games, period! Or, just stop touching your controller for a second or few, til it cleans up! As long as the music stays smooth, you are generally in no immediately or imminent danger of crashing! I have found this one of the most practical solutions for surveying exactly how the memory is currently behaving! Even the built in Memory Usage Detector is quite erratic and unreliable, in contrast, due to how some Cores gather the data.
Xtreme Virtual Ram Updated! (Mini MD-S-NESC)
With this installed, you will now have incredible performance and better compatibility! Doom Sigil will load without crashing, Custom Arcade OSTs, such as NBA Jam and Street Fighter II will properly work. Naomi/Atomiswave will go from potential 2FPS slowdown, slideshows, to near seamless! I ran, even Fist of the North Star, quite nicely...on the lower spec MD Mini! You will have the double whammy of Zfast as well as Swap, along with Turbo Refinement, to help ease along the previous choke points in games for PSP, such as Burnout Legends, which run quite nicely with PPSSPP Xtreme Amped, now!
Other Additions! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
I made the Load Content more concise, so you don't have 100 characters listed at a time, when seeing what content or Core is loaded. This harkens back to my Prefix System which I showcased on NESC in 2017. IE: NES: Blaster Master, rather than Nintendo - Nintendo Entertainment System - Blaster Master, or Nintendo - Nintendo Entertainment System - Nestopia, now is Nintendo - NES - Nestopia! I really love this, as I don't want to sit there for 2-3 seconds on every Core, waiting for it to scroll by to see what the hell I am working with! This doesn't affect Ozone as much. But, with my preferred Amped XMB Builds, it is a little more confined for scrolling sections!
MD Mini 6 Button Controller Mostly Fixed Up! (Mini MD)
Thanks ReyVGM and bslenul for helping with this very frustrating addition. Many have encountered buttons being wonky or off by one! We did some extensive testing. And, with RetroArch Install from THIS Update, your MD 6 Button Controllers, should perform properly. Note: there are purportedly 4 different 6 Button Controller Types that came with the MD/Genesis Minis. We did the ones we had access to. If any of you have ones that still do not work, contact us, and we can help you with the appropriate process of generating a control scheme, which we can put into the install, so you and others can utilize it! Also, if running MD Games with Genesis Plus or Xtreme GX, you may sometimes need to go into RetroArch Settings, Quick Menu, Controls, and choose between 3/6 button there, depending on game. Variables. But, you get the idea! ' Next Update WIP (DraStic MD Mini Controls/MAME 2003 Xtreme Amped, etc)!
DraStic, currently, is quite limited in "what controllers" will auto work with it, for MD Mini! So, this is a top priority to get fixed up, right after this Update! They work absolutely fine for SNES/NES. But, a little additional work is needed to rectify things so they are more appropriately geared for the MD Mini. For now, you can access the DraStic Menu via holding reset on your MD Mini, for roughly 2 seconds. And, from there, if you have a working and supported controller, you should have no trouble navigating, and mapping, yourself. You can also use a keyboard, to make things fast and easy. And, TWO controllers can actually be used, one in each of the front controller ports, as well! Again, this is one of the top priorities to fix up, as soon as we reasonably can! Thanks for all the feedback and input!
I will have 2 MAME 2003 Xtreme Builds, Next Update. One will favor performance/speed, the other compatibility/stability. If I can get the better performance/speed on the latter build, I will relegate it to just one build. But, sometimes, it works best not trying to fix what isn't truly broken! SO far, in my personal testing, things are looking pretty tip top, as far as a nice Xtreme Amped Build. I just need to do more recoding, which I don't want to delay this Update, to do. But, I will certainly showcase this stuff. Stuff Like Virtua Fighter, etc, may run even better, too, once I am done!
I will get more Games onto the Mod Hub, including some very nice handheld games! I have wanted to do this for awhile. This will be the third priority for this followup Update, which won't be 3 months later, like this one was!
Refined Cheat Support for several Cores! I will showcase this in a few videos. Some of the most grueling and frustratingly difficult games, will be more approachable with easy access invincibility and/or infinite lives, etc, on the fly:) You will see:)
The Videos!
Be sure to go to my YouTube Channel, look at most recent, and go backwards, to cover pretty much everything shown in this Update! But, here are a few stand-out ones to check out, for now:)

Everything You Need to Know About NFR

Beyond the payouts for the Cowboys, the PRCA estimates that the event brings in about $90 million annually to the Las Vegas economy. Furthermore, recent attendance stats have shown that 177,565 rodeo enthusiasts decked out in Wrangler jeans, Justin boots and cowboy hats attended events at the Thomas & Mack with an additional 40,000 fans who watched at the 40 hotels who hosted watch parties. It is during this rare time of the year that many marquees on the Strip have the face of bull riders replace DJs’ faces.

Main Performance

Seven main events have historically taken place at the NFR. Each event has its own monetary prizes that are paid out, and those payouts are determined by each top-placing competitor’s rank in relation to the event’s overall prize pool. Individuals placed in the top-six of a particular event are paid out accordingly, while individuals placed in the top-eight of the overall NFR are also paid out. The NFR’s main events are as follows:
  • Bareback Riding
  • This consists of a horseback cowboy using a bareback rigging as the primary means of staying on top of the horse. This grip has often been compared to the equivalent of hanging on to a suitcase handle and makes for the only support that a cowboy has on top of the wildly bucking horse. An 8-second ride constitutes a qualified ride and the cowboys is judged on riding technique.
  • Steer Wrestling
  • This act involves a horseback steer wrestler, alternatively known as a “bulldogger”, bringing a fast-moving steer to a halt on its back as fast as possible. The bulldogger utilizes a combination of strength, technique, speed, and precision to jump off of their horse from a designated starting point and onto a steer sprinting off from the same starting point.
  • Team Roping
  • Headers
  • One of two horseback team members whose job is to successfully rope the head of the steer in one of three tries as fast as possible; around both horns, around one horn and the head, or around the neck.
  • Heelers
  • One of two horseback team members whose job is to successfully rope the hind legs of the steer as soon as the header has successfully done their part. To avoid a 5-second penalty for roping only one hind leg, the heeler must rope both hind legs.
  • Saddle Bron Riding
  • Similar to Bareback Riding, the goal of the horseback cowboy is to maintain their balance as much as possible for 8 seconds while the horse is bucking. In this event, however, the cowboy sits on a saddle while using one hand to hold on to a thick rein that’s attached to the horse’s halter.
  • Tie-Down Roping
  • This event centers around a cowboy on horseback attempting to restrain a calf by throwing a well-timed rope loop that’s attached to the cowboy’s horse. The cowboy and the calf both leave from a designated starting point, with the calf getting a slight head-start. The cowboy depends on the horse to mitigate any slack in the rope after dismounting, then proceeds to tie-up the calf as fast as possible.
  • Barrel Racing
  • This is a women’s event where horseback cowgirls race against the clock to complete a strategically set course where barrels are set up as landmarks. The intent is for the cowgirls to complete a cloverleaf-shaped run around 3 barrels placed in a triangular formation as fast as possible. Barrels that are accidentally knocked over result in 5-second penalties.
  • Bull Riding
  • The cowboy on top of the bull has the main objective of staying on top and maintaining their balance for 8 seconds. They are judged based on technique and can earn extra points by spurring while the bull is bucking. The cowboy stays on top of the bull by grasping a flat braided rope, which also wraps around the bull’s chest.
  • All-Around Champion
  • Being crowned the All-Around Champion speaks volumes about the versatility and high level of talent exhibited by the winning cowboy. In order to receive this honor, the cowboy must have won the most prize money in a given year and competed in at least 2 NFR events while earning at least $3,000 in each of those events. This is widely known as the highest honor bestowed by the PRCA.

Contestants

There are 120 cowboys from all over the United States that will step foot as competitors within the NFR. A full list of the contestants can be found on the event’s Contestant Roster page. The top 10 ranked competitors are as follows:
  1. Tuf Cooper – Tie-Down Roping
  2. Trevor Brazile – Tie-Down Roping
  3. Sage Kimzey – Bull Riding
  4. Tim O’Connell – Bareback Riding
  5. Jacobs Crawley – Saddle Bronc Riding
  6. Caleb Bennett – Bareback Riding
  7. Ryder Wright – Saddle Bronc Riding
  8. Rhen Richard – Team Roping (Header)
  9. Shane Hanchey – Tie-Down Roping
  10. Brittany Pozzi Tonozzi – Barrel Racing

Super Bowl of Rodeo

The NFR has consistently been referred to with this phrase because of the sheer massiveness of its popularity and money-generating power within the context of rodeo. The event is considered to be so big and consistently sold-out that the UNLV basketball team that normally uses the NFR’s venue during the season has to annually build its schedule in a way that keeps the team on the road for the duration of the NFR festivities.

Miss Rodeo America

This event is a pageant that takes place in conjunction with the NFR as part of the NFR’s overall festivities. State rodeo queen winners from across the United States compete for the Miss Rodeo America crown and put themselves in line to potentially win $20,000, among other smaller prizes. In addition to the prizes, the winner is expected to travel to various rodeos throughout the United States and to promote the rodeo during the subsequent year.

Wrangler NFR Preshow

The former Miss Rodeo America titleholder is no stranger to the excitement of the “Super Bowl” of Western competition, with six years of WNFR reporting under her belt. She is most excited about bringing the pre-show to the fans. Be prepared for this Wrangler NFR Preshow, don’t miss a single moment of the Pro Rodeo live action.

Cowboy Christmas

For those that need a break from the constant adrenaline that comes with the NFR’s main events, the Cowboy Christmas experience allows for a welcomed change of pace. This portion of NFR centers around cowboy shopping and serves as a marketplace for hundreds of exhibitors from the United States and Canada to sell to thousands of eager buyers. Typically taking place at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Cowboy Christmas will also move to Arlington, TX in 2020. All exhibitors will have the opportunity to Opt-In/Opt-Out for 2020.

Standings

The 2019 PRCA season has been extremely competitive as a lot of the top cowboys are gunning for glory. Tuf Cooper sits atop of the all-around standings and many experts believe that he is going to win his second all-around title in a row. There will be a lot of close competitions and many of the world championships could come down to the last day. You can check the current standings here.

NFR Prize Money

The total payout for the entire event is $10 million and will remain at that amount until 2020. After that, the amount will be adjusted and remain in place for the subsequent five years. All 120 qualifying contestants receive $10,000 as part of participating. This year’s detailed payout structure can be found on the PRCA’s 2019 Wrangler NFR Payoff page.

2020.08.10 12:22 carlpocket My complete set of one of every game from all regions that is VR or PSVR compatible

My complete set of one of every game from all regions that is VR or PSVR compatible

My complete PSVR physical set
Pretty sure this is everything that has been released from all regions including the Limited Run Games VR series (and the 3 compatible games from their older releases) as well as the I am 8 bit release of Rez Infinite. If you do notice something I might be missing please let me know. I can say I do already have Pixel Ripped 1989, Space Channel 5 Kinda Funky News Flash!, Ninja Legends, Budget Cuts and the Raw Data/Sprint Vector combo disc pre-ordered and keep watching and waiting for The Station and Bounce to get pre order dates.
I got a PSVR week one so I lucked out on some of the early games like Job Simulator which is expensive now. Only really expensive games to buy were the Japanese Imports (when you want english subtitles). Both Summer Lesson games I got new from playasia around $50 as well as both versions of Dead or Alive Xtreme 3. Jykko You Powerful Pro Baseball 2020 came out in July in Japan so that is still at its retail 60$ price if you can find it. I picked up Joysound.TV while in Japan last year on a trip.
Being in the US I am kinda shocked how few of these games got a physical release in here and that the UK gets SOOOOOOOOO many more games.
If you are curious about any games lmk. I've played through about 90% of them, but there are a handful that after 20 minutes I had no interest ever playing again.

2020.07.03 23:08 Bleep_Bloop_Unlocked [USA - UT] [H] Massive pile of games, guides, accessories, collectibles, and more; great stuff for DS, 3DS, Dreamcast, GB, GBA, GameCube, N64, NES, PC, PS1/2/3, PSP, SNES, Wii, Wii U, Xbox OG/360/One [W] PayPal. All sales help raise money for a family member battling cancer.

THIS HAS MOVED TO A NEWER POST.
4th of July Update: I am in absolute awe. First off, platinum??!! A major thank you to the redditor who gilded my gaming yard sale post with a platinum medal (not sure if you wanna remain anonymous, but I'll reach out when I have a second). I'm really touched. As is often said on this site, please consider donating money to a charity or-nonprofit instead of using it on digital shinies. I would be remiss if I didn't say there are soooo many great charities dedicated to cancer research that needs every penny they can get. If you're low on funds, please consider reaching out to your friends, family, and neighbors; check on their wellbeing and offer help if any is required. Kindness costs nothing and makes the world a much better place.
Secondly, I apologize for how slow my responses have been. Trust me, I see your comments flooding in. I am trying to tackle everyone in order and have to flip-flop between responding, uploading photos, and standard adulting responsibilities. Please bear with me and just comment what you're interested in. I may not have everything you wanted by the time I reach your place in line, but I will definitely let you know when I get there.
Lastly, please, Please, PLEASE post your comments and questions here and not via direct message. It is sub policy and it makes my life so much easier when tracking requests when I don't need to factor in messages. Thank you for your understanding and I promise I'll be with you as soon as I'm able.
-------
MAJOR EDIT: Holy crap, everyone! The response to this post has been massive to say the least. Please bear with my while I get some photos captured and uploaded for you all. It is going to take me a long time. I've had to make room and move a majority of the items into the comments due to the reddit character limit.
I may have long periods of silence, but please comment what you're interested in and I'll put you in line, even if others are ahead of you with the games you want. Trying my damnedest to make sure I manage a proper first come, first served with the requests. Thanks for your patience!
-------
HELLO AGAIN, FELLOW GAMERS! I have returned to offload my wares in my journey to raise money for a family member battling cancer. My previous post was more successful than I had anticipated and my family owes a huge thank you to those who have already purchased items from me. Watching them struggle has been a challenge, during the middle of a pandemic no less. I do what I can to help, but every dollar earned from this sub goes to them and helps even more.
PLEASE THOROUGHLY READ the item notes, if applicable. All games are CiB unless noted and all items are coming from a smoke-free home. I did my best to note any issues like missing content or damage. I can add photos for an item once interest is expressed, but please be patient as responding to comments and adding photos will take time. Ask any questions! I am even open for some trading as there are many titles my friends desire and will gladly purchase from me.
REGARDING PRICE: Per sub rules, I am required to list a price. However, I had so many items to catalog with limited time available each day for price research. I did my best to factor in the condition and rarity, but I am certain my pricing is off with many items. If you see anything that is oveunder priced, please let me know; I won’t consider it threadcrapping as long as you’re polite about it (though I have no control over how the mods feel). If you are interested in an item with a bad price, then please make an offer; I am sure we can agree on a price that will leave both parties happy. I’m here to help a family member, not run a business.
REGARDING SHIPPING: Please expect inflated shipping times. Current events have massively impacted the cost and reliability of shipping dates. USPS has been the worst, but even UPS has been spotty. My shipments are taking longer and longer to arrive to their destinations, but ALL have eventually arrived safe and sound (knock on wood). Please notify me if you would prefer a faster shipping option, but note that only select options are “guaranteed” by the shipping companies to be delivered within the advertised dates.
My confirmed trade thread.
Thank you all! Oh, and f*ck cancer.

2020.06.25 16:00 efa___ I Read It So You Don't Have To: Little Kids, Big City (by Alex McCord and Simon van Kempen)

Inspired by the overwhelmingly positive response to my previous 'book report' on Ramona Singer's Life on the Ramona Coaster (seriously, thank you all -- truly supporting other women 🙏🙏), I decided to try my hand at writing up yet another of the embarrassing number of Housewives books in my personal collection: Alex McCord and Simon van Kempen's Little Kids, Big City: Tales from a Real House in New York City with Lessons on Life and Love for Your Own Concrete Jungle.
After reading just the title of this book, I'm already exhausted. It's pretentiously long and awkwardly phrased while somehow still managing to be entirely devoid of meaning. In other words, a perfect encapsulation of Simon and Alex. The summary on the back cover describes the pair as the "breakout stars" of RHONY, an assessment that I would charitably call 'debatable,' before going on to inform me that I can look forward to "informative and often hair-raising stories of life in the urban jungle," and that "Alex and Simon use their own hard-won experience as a springboard to discuss a host of parenting topics." I anticipate that this content will be quite useful to me, the guardian of four cats that I spoil endlessly and treat like my actual children.
One of the pull-quotes on the back cover allegedly comes from our very own Bethenny Frankel. I say 'allegedly' because I refuse to believe that the following passage would ever come out of Bethenny's mouth (or keyboard or whatever):
Alex and Simon don't take themselves too seriously, which seems to be essential to parenting. Their fresh 'he said, she said' perspective on parenting is both humorous and insightful!
Please, take a moment and do your very best to picture mention-it-all, betting-on-horse-races-at-age-five Bethenny unironically using the phrase "fresh 'he said, she said' perspective." To describe Simon van Kempen and Alex McCord. Right, didn't think so.
My experience reading Little Kids, Big City started on an unexpected high note when I opened the front cover to find that my copy (purchased used through Better World Books for the low, low price of $5.31 with shipping) had been signed by Ms. you-are-in-high-school-while-I-am-in-Brooklyn herself, Alex McCord! Truly a gift I do not deserve. Samantha and Debbie (whoever and wherever you may be), thank you for your service. I am forever in your debt.
Unfortunately, as would soon become painfully clear to me, after starting off on such a promising note, I would have nowhere to go but down.
The book, which is written in alternating passages from Alex and Simon, begins its introduction with a chronicle of Alex's "fashionably nomadic" early adulthood. Ever the proto-edgelord, she recalls, "I did all those things our mothers warned us about and had fun doing them." We switch to Simon's perspective to hear the deeply embarrassing story of the couple meeting through a dating app while Simon was on a business trip in New York City. No, there is absolutely nothing embarrassing about meeting someone on a dating app. But there absolutely is something embarrassing about using the profile name "Yetisrule" to meet someone on a dating app. To clarify, this was apparently Alex's username, and I remain hopeful that we will get a more thorough explanation of her connection to the elusive Yeti as this book continues.
Alex tells us that, while she and Simon hadn't initially planned to have children, they eventually started to have "clucky feelings." I have never heard this phrase in my entire twenty-five years of life, but based on context clues and also a Google search, I learned that it means they wanted to have a baby. Don't worry, though! As Alex tells us, "You can be eight months pregnant and wear a leather miniskirt." Personally, this is life-changing news -- I had always believed that I couldn't have kids unless I was willing to compromise my 90s goth aesthetic! Maybe I'll rethink this child-free thing after all.
The next bit of advice seems like it actually could potentially be sort of helpful. "No one is a good parent all the time -- nor is anyone a bad parent all the time," they reassure the reader. "You can become a parent without losing yourself." Unfortunately, as soon as I catch myself nodding along, the modicum of goodwill I'd built up is promptly trashed by a gag-worthy line from Simon: "If you take nothing away but a wry smile after reading our little tome, then we've done our job." I immediately vow not to smile until I'm finished reading this book. Excuse me, this little tome.
The book starts in earnest with Chapter 1: "Does a German Shepherd Need a Birth Plan?" To be perfectly honest, I was not expecting a riddle at this juncture, but I am nevertheless excited to hear Simon and Alex tell us "why childbirth is not an intellectual activity." First, however, we get a passing reference to "Park Slope, home of the ParkSlopeParents.com message board made famous in 2007 with a so-ridiculous-it-got-headlines discussion on gender-specific baby hats and where feminism can be taken to extremes." And despite the lame alarmist allusion to ~*XTREME feminism*~, this line did manage to lead me down an interesting Internet rabbit hole, so thanks for that, I guess?
Jesus Christ, I am on PAGE 4 and I am already so done with Simon. Presented without comment:
With the Park Slope OB-GYN, we had the first sonogram and saw the little blip on the screen -- our child-to-be. They say seeing is believing and as nothing was happening inside me, seeing confirmation on the video monitor that indeed my spermatozoa had penetrated and infiltrated one of Alex's ova made me aware that my days as a footloose and fancy-free guy might be coming to an end.
Y'all, I am currently working on my PhD in Molecular Biology. Which, if you were not previously aware, gives me the authority to decree that Simon is never allowed to use the word "spermatozoa" ever again. And so it is.
I was about to say that Alex's passages are at least more tolerable, but it appears I spoke too soon.
The stats they quoted referenced a 40 percent cesarean section rate in the city, and I wonder how that can be acceptable? Are we heading toward Brave New World, where babies are scientifically created in petri dishes and gestated in artificial wombs? Oh wait, we're already there. Are we heading towards a Wall-E existence, where we ride around in carts everywhere and do nothing for ourselves so that our bodies break down and we're all fat, oozy blobs drinking protein from a straw? Somebody slap me, please!!
Truly, Alex, it would be my pleasure.
As a Type-A person, just reading the story of Alex's first pregnancy and delivery gave me anxiety. She says that she just never really "felt the need to establish a birth plan" and that she "gave in to any craving [she] felt." Don’t worry, though -- "If I had suddenly craved chalk, ecstasy or Elmer's Glue, I'd have thought twice." I feel like there is some symbolism here to unpack (Could the Elmer's Glue be a metaphor for the childlike spirit of connection and unity???). Simon describes himself as "a learn-on-the-job guy" and tells us that he and Alex "failed to attend the last couple of [birthing] classes as by then we both just wanted to let instinct take over when the time came." As someone who has never trusted my instincts even once in my entire life, I cannot relate.
Twelve days after his due date, baby François is born. Except it turns out that he actually was born right on time, but Alex "didn't keep regimented track of [her] periods" and miscalculated. What a bummer that modern medicine hasn't advanced to the point where doctors can guide you about that sort of thing.
I don't even know what to say about this next bit, but God help me, I still have 215 more pages of this book to go.
Although the final stages of labor were very, very painful, I [Alex] never used our code word (tin can) for "game over, give me drugs." I definitely recommend using a code word, because it was kind of fun to scream, "I want drugs, give me drugs" through a contraction and have the midwife, nurse and Simon all know I wasn't serious. Once he [François] was finally out of my body, I experienced a tsunami of endorphins that was almost orgasmic, and I understand completely the stories other women have written about ecstatic birth. Simon was sitting behind me at the point of birth, and later when we untangled ourselves he discovered he'd actually ejaculated though hadn't felt any of the normal lead-up to that. It may seem distasteful to some, and definitely neither of us was thinking of sex at the time, but with the rush of emotion and my lower nerve endings going crazy, it's not too far a stretch to say that it's a profound experience.
Johan is born two years later, although it's unclear from the text whether either parent reached orgasm during the event.
The chapter ends with a top-ten list entitled "10 Things We'll Remember That Happened During Pregnancy." These include useful tidbits like
  1. Best advice I heard: men's genitals grow and change shape regularly, then go back to the way they were before. Don't worry about your female delicate bits being able to retract.
Which is…a lovely sentiment. But one that is slightly undermined by phrasing the first part in the grossest way possible, as well as by the use of the phrase "female delicate bits." I do like the idea that they "retract," however, because I think it's very cool to imagine the vagina as an SUV sunroof. By the grace of God, Chapter 1 comes to a close.
In Chapter 2 (titled "No Sleep 'Til Brooklyn, What's My Name Again? and Who is This Alien?" -- seriously, were they padding their word count with chapter titles?), we get more questionable parenting advice from the McCord-van Kempens. They glibly dismiss concerns about co-sleeping ("Simon and I both slept with cats and dogs our whole lives without squishing them"), which I honestly would be more annoyed about if I hadn't immediately gone on to read Simon's account of "the midnight race to the 24-hour pharmacy to buy a breast pump as Alex's breasts were seemingly engorged with too much milk and she thought they were about to explode and fly off her chest." As it stands, I'm truly too defeated to care. Again, just to be perfectly clear: no shade to having issues breastfeeding, all shade to using the word 'engorged.’ And also for giving me the mental image of Alex's breasts desperately struggling to flee from her body (though to be fair, who could blame them?).
Proving that she does not inhabit the same world as the rest of us mortals, Alex tells us that she expected that her state of sleep-deprivation as she raised two young children would "spur [her] creativity with graphic design." For some reason, this does not seem to be the case. Alex is puzzled.
Finally, we've come to this chapter's top ten list ("Top 10 Memories of Random Things We Did While in the Post-Birth Haze"). While these lists have so far been utterly irredeemable, they also mean the chapter is coming to a close, so I can at least take some solace in that. This particular list ranges from the irritating…
  1. We subversively took sleeping babies to as many non-child-friendly places as possible to prove the point that children can be seen, not heard and not bothersome, such as dinner at the Ritz in London, the Sahara Desert, shopping on Madison Avenue, Underbar in Union Square and film festivals.
…to the truly unnecessary.
  1. While changing François' diaper on day one or two, we both stood mesmerized by the changing pad as meconium oozed out of him. It was really the most bizarre and fascinating thing I'd seen to date.
With the couple's general backstory and credentials now under our belts, Chapter 3 ("The Screaming Kid on the Plane is NOT Mine! (This Time)") focuses on advice for traveling with children, which Alex admits "can be a complete pain in the you-know-what." I cannot describe the rage I feel at the fact that she has -- in no fewer than 50 pages -- forced me to read about both her newborn son's excrement and her husband's ejaculate, but cannot bring herself to use the word "ass." Alex, we're really far beyond that at this point, don't you think?
Not to be outdone, Simon shares a conversation he had with François that is remarkable not for its content, but for the fact that one of Simon's nicknames for his son is apparently "F-Boy." Thanks, I hate it.
This chapter's list ("Alex's Top 10 Travel Memories") includes the entry:
  1. Both boys charging down Saline Beach in St. Barths like something out of Lord of the Flies.
So, like a horde of primal sadists? I'm wondering if Alex and Simon have inadvertently confused Lord of the Flies with the hit 2007 reality show Kid Nation. I really hope that's what's going on here.
Chapter 4 ("'Mommy, Johan is Gone!'") promises to teach us how to handle accidents. I'm not sure how comfortable I feel taking emergency advice from the authors of this particular book, but (in large part due to the fact that I have slept since reading the previous chapter, giving the pain a chance to dull somewhat), I am willing to at least hear them out.
After relaying a story of François needing emergency surgery after a foot injury, Alex tells us that at one point, she and Simon realized they had spent "nearly $5000 on Indian takeout" in the past year. For the mathematically averse, this works out to a monthly budget of roughly $100 worth of Indian food per week, making my quarantine Uber Eats habit seem downright quaint by comparison. The chapter-ending list walks us through the "Top 10 Things We Do in a Crisis," and fortunately, the tips seem pretty benign.
  1. Knowing what calms the children down, such as making silly faces or reciting Shel Silverstein poetry backwards.
Wait, hang on. What?
reciting Shel Silverstein poetry backwards
I'm sorry, please forgive me if I have missed some recent, paradigm-shifting development in the field of early childhood education, but what?? As in, "ends sidewalk the where?" "Sdne klawedis eht erehw?" I am truly befuddled.
Maybe the next chapter ("'Is Today a Work Day or a Home Day, Mommy?'") will have some applicable wisdom for me, as I will, in fact, be working from home every other week for the foreseeable future. And, I cannot stress this enough, I am a psychotically overinvested cat mom. Alas, we are instead treated to an unnecessarily detailed breakdown of how important it is to delegate, and specifically that Simon cleans up vomit and Alex cleans up "feces in the various forms that come out of children's bottoms at appropriate and sometimes inappropriate times such as the middle of Thanksgiving festivities." As if we needed another reason to consider Thanksgiving problematic.
The chapter takes a brief commercial break…
When an everyday product can do double duty such as Dawn Hand Renewal with Olay Beauty, a dish soap that seals in moisture while I'm tackling cleanup, sure, I'll buy it.
…before closing out with a list of the "Top 10 Things We Do Because We Were Here First." I am happy to confirm your worst suspicions and tell you that item number one is indeed "Have passionate sex."
In Chapter 6 ("I Saw Your Nanny…Being Normal?"), I find myself actually sympathizing with Alex for the first time in this book. Which is mostly just because the chapter starts by talking about all of the awful, catty parental competitions that seem endemic to a certain crew of white Manhattan moms, and it makes Alex come off at least slightly less irritating in comparison.
That is, at least until a few pages later, when she starts to complain about a previous au pair:
She was sullen, melodramatic and kept a blog about how she hated Americans, hated France, hated us and the children but loved New York. I think she must have thought we were idiots, and when she asked us to leave early we were only too happy to get her out of our home.
I would love to meet this woman. I think we could be great friends.
This chapter's list is even more difficult to parse than previous ones, because while it's titled "Top 10 Things Caregivers Have Inadvertently Done to Amuse, Annoy or Thrill Us," it's not at all clear which descriptors apply to which points. When a babysitter "accidentally used a household cleaning wipe when changing a diaper," were the McCord-Van Kempens amused? Annoyed? Thrilled? The world may never know.
In Chapter 7 ("'Putting To Death Is Not Nice,' a Duet for Two Boys and A Guitar"), Alex and Simon share some of their hard-earned childrearing wisdom with us. Which basically amounts to Alex telling us that, while normally misbehavior from the kids incurs a warning followed by a time-out, she has also developed an ingenious new strategy where she actually steps in to intervene when the stakes are higher. Let's listen in:
A third permutation is when there's a behavior that has to stop immediately, say if Johan has a big blue indelible marker and is running through a white hotel suite. I swoop in and grab the marker as to risk a three count [warning] would be to risk decoration of the sofa.
Take the marker from the toddler immediately instead of trying to reason with him? Groundbreaking.
Side Note: At this point in my reading, I am incredibly satisfied to report that I have discovered my first typo in the book, and in one of Simon's sections no less! ("These toads secret [sic] a poison…"). This is wildly pedantic of me and proof that I am a deeply sick person.
We run though a list of "Top 10 Things We Never Thought We Would Have To Explain" ("10. Why hot pizza stones do not like Legos.") before moving right along into Chapter 8, "Don't Listen to the Well-Meaning Morons." Strangely, I have a very vivid memory of Alex saying "I have a chapter in my book called, 'Don't Listen to the Well-Meaning Morons" in some distant RHONY episode or reunion. I guess she was telling the truth.
The chapter opens with a series of passages in which Alex and Simon respond to various comments that have been made about their parenting over the years. I think this device is supposed to be a bit of lighthearted snark on overbearing strangers, but instead just comes off as weirdly defensive and passive-aggressive. A few examples:
"My daughter is perfect. Her table manners are excellent, she never speaks unless spoken to and we've always had white sofas at home since she was a child, with no staining."
-A woman with one preteen daughter, no sons
Your daughter sounds boring. I wouldn't want my sons to date her..
Zing!
"Why are you outside?" - A bagel seller in Montreal, in February
I'm hungry and the stroller is well protected under the plastic cover. Johan is warm and cozy, the others are asleep in the hotel and I'm going stir-crazy. Is that enough, or should I buy my bagel from someone else?
Got 'em!
"Excuse me, your baby is crying." -- Someone said to Simon as they peered into the stroller to try and determine the cause of said noise.
You don't say! Do you think, you stupid idiot, that I don't hear that? Do you think I think it's just loud music? Do you think I don't want him to stop and that I like it???
Sorry, did I say 'passive-aggressive'? Let's change that to just 'aggressive.'
But despite bristling at being the recipient of unwanted advice, far be it from Alex to shy away from giving her opinions on the shortcomings of other parents.
There was a mom at another table who wore all black and told her hyperactive daughter that they had to have a family meeting to decide what to do next. The type of woman who might ask her daughter to "process her feelings" about which color to choose. The type of woman who wanted make [sic] a big huge hairy deal about including her daughter in the decision-making process and "negotiating" the next best step for the family to take in the pottery shop. Pardon me while I shoot myself.
I'm sorry, but I just cannot respect this take coming from a woman who calms her sons by reciting comedic children's poetry backwards.
We next learn that there are "many websites out in cyberspace," some of which offer child-rearing advice. Simon summarizes their useless "vitriol" as such:
They say that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, whereas for the 21st century surely hell no longer hath fury, as it's all been hurled at the belittled and scorned Internet mom.
I'm honestly not entirely sure what this is supposed to mean, and my confusion continues all the way through this chapter's "Top 10 Ways We Make Ourselves Feel Better When It's All Getting To Be Too Much." We begin reasonably enough…
  1. Check to see whether the person offering advice has children. How old are they?
  2. Do they have a point? Are they right? It is entirely possible.
…before quickly losing all sense of self-awareness and flying completely off the rails.
  1. Will we ever see this person again? If not, can we get away with unleashing our fury on them? Note, if you're reading this and decide to try it for yourself, go big or go home.
The last few chapters have been a bit Alex-heavy, but never fear -- Simon pops back up in Chapter 9 ("If I Wouldn't Eat That, My Kid Won't Either") to tell us a charming story about how the family refers to his Bolognese sauce as "Dead Cow Sauce," and this is because his children are incredibly enlightened and understand the circle of life and where food comes from. Or something along those lines.
This chapter also provides a lot of really incontrovertible proof that, even though you may swear that your kids say the most hilarious things all the time, you are wrong. I love kids. I can play cool aunt with the best of them. But this "recipe" for "Johan's Concoction" tries so hard to be cute and funny ("whisk violently -- making sure to spill a little out of the top") that I could barely stifle my groans. For anyone who happens to frequent RebornDollCringe, I am strongly and inexplicably reminded of Britton.
A list of "Top 10 Things We Don't Like About Children's Restaurants" culminates with
  1. Where would you rather be? A bistro devoted to race-car driving, with 1950s toy cars on the walls, or T.G.I. Friday's?
Excuse me, ma'am, you must be unfamiliar with the concept of Endless Apps®.
The title of Chapter 10 is "You'll Give in Before I Do!" and although the subtitle lets me know this is referencing "the art and warfare of bedtime," it's hard not to take it as a personal taunt from the authors. Most of this chapter is just transcriptions of 'cute' things François and Johan have said to try to avoid going to bed, but we do get this gem:
Slaying the dragon is our family euphemism for using the toilet (drowning the dragons that live in the sewer) and is fun for the boys to talk about, though probably not forever.
Before giving us a chance to adequately process this revelation, Alex goes on to reflect:
Hmm, perhaps I should delete this -- I don’t want obnoxious classmates getting hold of this book in 10 years and asking the boys if they need to slay the dragon in the middle of geometry class.
Alex, I assure you, you truly have nothing to worry about. Any self-respecting bully will be far too focused on the fact that Simon ejaculated at the moment of his son's birth to pay this comparatively trivial factoid any attention.
The authors shake things up and end this chapter with lists of both "Top 20 Bedtime Stories" and "Top 10 Lullabies," both of which are thankfully inoffensive.
In Chapter 11 ("Children Like Shiny Objects"), we follow Alex and Simon as they purchase the townhouse we see them renovating on RHONY. Although other (read: lesser) parents might store breakables out of reach or limit children's toys to playrooms and bedrooms, Alex and Simon were blessed with two boys whose aesthetic sensibilities are already quite developed:
One kind of funny thing that I noticed recently is that the toys the boys tend to leave upstairs in our red and black living room often tend to be red and black as well. I'm not sure whether that's intentional, but it's funny that the room always seems to match regardless of its contents.
The list of "Top 10 Craziest Places We've Found Objects" is mercifully absent of any orifice-related discoveries.
After reading just the title of Chapter 12 ("Raising Baby Einsteins"), I'm bracing myself for the self-satisfied smugness to come. This preparation turns out to be duly warranted. Baby sign language is dismissed as "a scheme dreamed up by ASL experts who wanted to sell classes to easily influenced new parents," Mommy and Me classes are "not really for teaching anything," and we learn that Alex and Simon have instituted a bizarre family rule that "if a talking toy came into our house, it had to speak a foreign language or speak English in an accent other than American."
We learn that Simon apparently does not know what antonyms are (for the record, Simon, the word you're looking for is homophones) and that New York City is replete with "wailing, nocturnal, type-A obsessed harridans willing to sleep with persons not their spouse if they think it will help their child get into THE RIGHT SCHOOL." Uh, yikes. After a tediously long description of François' pre-school admissions process, Alex informs us:
As a former actor, I've always gotten into play-acting and dressing up with my children. Perhaps a little too much. But I've taken the opportunity to show off a few old monologues, complete with bounding around like a puppy. If you have knowledge, why not share it? If you happen to know Puck's speeches from a Midsummer Night's Dream by ear with tumbling and staged sword play, why the heck don’t you share that with your boisterous boys, who love it and run around shouting, "Thou speakest aright!"
I am suddenly compelled to call my mother and thank her profusely for never making me put up with anything like this. Maybe I'll also get her thoughts on one of the tips listed in "Top 10 Favorite 'Developmental' Things To Do": "if they want something that you want to delay giving them, make them ask in every language they can before giving in." To me, this seems like an effective way to encourage your children to learn how to say "Fuck you, mom" in French as early as possible.
In Chapter 13 ("Urban Wonderland"), Alex and Simon promise to share their unique perspective on "taking advantage of raising a child in the urban jungle." But mostly, we just get a rant about how everyone thinks their kids have weird names, and that makes Simon mad. This chapter's "Top 10 Reasons New York is the Center of the Universe to a Kid" list reminds us what truly matters: "there are more songs with NYC in their titles than any other city."
Immediately after telling us how great it is to live in a city (excuse me, urban jungle), Alex and Simon switch tack and spend Chapter 14 ("'Daddy, a Cow! And It's Not in a Zoo!") expounding on the importance of exposing kids to nature. Sounds great, I'm on board. Unfortunately, we almost immediately take a hard left turn into a story from Simon's childhood where he and his brother are "befriended by this old guy, Dick, who lived on the outskirts of town in a small tin shed." We hear that Dick "occasionally pulled out an early Playboy magazine back from the days when the lower regions were airbrushed out," and that "there had been pretty strong rumors of pedophilia," before promptly returning to the main narrative with no further explanation. I can only describe the transition as 'jarring.'
I can tell how exhausted I am at this point in the book by how hurriedly I skimmed the list of "Top 10 Differences We've Noticed Between City Kids and Country Kids." To be honest, I'm almost annoyed when a particularly bizarre quote manages to catch my attention, because that means I have to think about it for the full amount of time it takes me to transcribe from the page. I'm beginning to think that my initial hope that I could glean some useful cat-rearing advice from this experience may have been overzealous.
Chapter 15 ("You're Such a Great Parent, You Should Be on TV (LOL)") is the only chapter to directly address the family's time on RHONY. It starts with this (attempted) comedy bit in which Alex and Simon pretend to be hilariously self-aware and self-effacing (Alex: "Look up 'Mommylicious' in the dictionary and you will see a photo of me in a ball gown, breast-feeding an infant while making Osso Buco and directing carpenters to build a bookcase for my Dickens and Shakespeare."). This posture would be infinitely more believable if I hadn't spent the previous 205 pages watching these two take themselves deadly seriously.
But rather than share any juicy behind-the-scenes tidbits (or, indeed, convey anything of substance at all), Alex and Simon spend exactly 3.5 pages blustering about how it wasn't harmful for their children to be on TV before giving us a list of "Top 10 Hilarious Things The Boys Have Done While Filming or at Photo Shoots." Spoiler alert: none of them are 'hilarious.'
Chapter 16 is literally titled "The Light at the End of the Tunnel," which makes me feel like this whole experience may have just been Alex and Simon playing some sort of twisted game with me. Alex tells us this is "the chapter of hope," but given that she then tells us about a time when she "spent one full hour discussing why magic markers cannot be carried around with the caps off, particularly in a hotel suite with white couches and walls," I'm not sure exactly where this hope is coming from. Also it seems like this markers-in-a-hotel-room thing happens weirdly frequently. We are then treated to Alex and Simon's "Top 10 Moments of Getting It,'" which includes
  1. Apropos of nothing, Johan said, "You give us time-outs because you are teaching us to be good grown-ups."
This is a thing I'm sure Johan said completely organically and not in response to hearing his parents say "we're giving you a time-out so that you learn to be a good grown-up" approximately seven zillion times.
This brings us to the book's Epilogue (a mercifully short two pages) featuring the line "If you made it to the end of this book, we salute you." Honored to accept this hard-earned accolade, I can finally close the book and start figuring out a way to erase the memory of Simon busting a mid-childbirth nut from my aching brain. Wish me luck!

2020.06.07 23:35 ConorCulture Rebooking Mick Foley in TNA

The first part of this booking was largely done by u/john14325 but I have edited some of the descriptions and made a few edits. Check out his booking of the Main Event Mafia: https://www.reddit.com/fantasybooking/comments/g6pbps/rebook_tna_the_main_event_mafia/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf where a lot of this booking comes from.
Build to Bound for Glory 2008:
After losing to Samoa Joe the year before, Angle fought his way to another title shot at Lockdown, where he put his career on the line against Kaz. In a shocking turn of events, Angle turned heel to become king of the mountain. Lambasting those who did not approve of his change in attitude, Angle still referred to himself as a man of integrity unlike TNA's founder. Seeing himself as the most important man in company history, Angle kept insulting Jarrett. This led to No Surrender where Double J returned, costing Angle the World Title against Joe.
Owning up to his own reign of terror, Jarrett went on a apology tour, asking for forgiveness of his abuse of powers years prior. Seeing Angle going down a similar past due to him being the highest paid person in TNA history, Jarrett set out to stop Angle from gaining more power. With the rivalry growing personal at an alarming rate, Foley was brought in to maintain order. Mick Foley made his TNA debut and said he was hired by Jeff Jarrett to become the new Commissioner of TNA, the role he always excelled in, because Jarrett believes Mick is the perfect man to run the company and keep things in order in case Angle causes any chaos. Mick tries to bring Angle to the light but he eats an Angle Slam. Mick makes himself the special guest referee, to ensure a fair match and fair result.
Bound for Glory 2008:
Jeff Jarrett def. Kurt Angle w/Mick Foley as special guest referee
That Foley did, as he stopped Angle from braining an already bloodied Jarrett with a guitar before getting into a skirmish himself. Seizing the advantage, Jarrett used the guitar himself to steal the victory over a clearly superior opponent.
Build to Turning Point 2008:
With the formation of the villainous stable, The Main Event Mafia, all eyes are on Commissioner Foley to see what announcement he makes. He says he met up with A.J. Styles and Samoa Joe, and they personally went around the TNA locker room and assembled a roster of people to fight for TNA against The Mafia. Styles, Joe, Petey Williams and The Motor City Machine Guns all come out and say they are the TNA Front Line, they will fight for justice, and they will fight off the old timers stealing their air time and championships.
The week following, the newly formed TNA Front Line come out and get into a huge brawl with The Main Event Mafia. People are thrown into the apron, ring posts, theres fists flying everywhere, no one can be contained. Scott Steiner gets into a fight with Petey Williams, his ex protege. Williams fights for TNA, Steiner isn’t part of him anymore. Petey slaps Steiner, which causes Steiner to brutally assault him some more.
Mick Foley says that Turning Point will be the war to settle the score. He will book a series of Front Line vs. Mafia matches, to see who is the better stable. Petey Williams and his former mentor Scott Steiner will do battle for Steiner’s Legends Championship. Petey will not defend his X Division, so there will be an Ultimate X Match to find the #1 Contenders to the X Division Championship. Booker T will take on Christian Cage in a Loser Leaves Town Match, Samoa Joe will get revenge on his former friend Kevin Nash, and A.J. Styles will challenge champion, Sting, for the TNA World Championship in the main event. The battle lines have been drawn.
Turning Point 2008:
Kurt Angle def. Jay Lethal vs Consequences Creed vs Eric Young vs Homicide vs Sonjay Dutt in a Ultimate X match
This match opens the show and it’s a 20 minute spot fest, people flying everywhere and high risks moves aplenty. Mike Tenay says this match embodies what the X Division is all about. Most notable participant in the match is Kurt Angle, as he stays as far out of the match as he can, only climbing the cables when everyone’s down and eventually he goes on to win the match.
Booker T def. Christian Cage
Booker T manages to defeat Christian clean since Christian was leaving for WWE anyway. Booker attacks Cage after the match, getting some heat for The Mafia as he batters a fan favourite in the last time they will see him again.
Scott Steiner(c) def Petey Williams to retain the Legends Championship
As Petey Williams is making his entrance, he is attacked from behind by Kurt Angle and leaves him as easy pickings for Scott Steiner but Petey puts up a hell of a fight. The one thing he cannot pull off is a Canadian Destroyer on Scott Steiner, he tries as hard as he can but the attack from early kicks in, plus Steiner is near impossible to lift up. Finally he’s put away by the Frankensteiner from Scott, who retains his Legends Championship
Kevin Nash def. Samoa Joe
Samoa Joe and Kevin Nash have a hell of a brawl, not doing much wrestling to hide Nash’s inability, just having a good old fashioned fight. They go around 10 minutes and Nash wins after hitting a low blow and three jackknife power bombs onto Samoa Joe. This makes Joe look strong in defeat, only being put away after three almighty finishers.
Sting(c) def. AJ Styles to retain the TNA World Heavyweight Championship
AJ Styles - the man who hasn’t held World Championship gold in three years wants to make an impact and silence Sting for good. AJ embodies TNA, he started out as the face of the X Division, something that is very close to TNA. He was a multiple time NWA Champion, he knows what holding World Championship gold feels like. They have a tremendous 25 minute match, Sting is able to pull off the clean victory and Styles offers his hand in a show of respect but is jumped by the rest of Main Event Mafia. The show ends with a beat down, mega heat for The Mafia.
Build to Final Resolution 2008:
The Main Event Mafia kicked ass at Turning Point, proving an old dog can still learn new tricks and they showed they were dominate over The Front Line. We see a pre taped party The Mafia are throwing in Sting’s multi-million dollar mansion. Champagne bottles are popped, Scott Steiner is with his freaks, Kurt Angle has milk in a wine glass and they are loving life. “Damn it feels good to be on top” Sting says to close it off.
That same night AJ Styles, Petey Williams, Samoa Joe and The Motor City Machine Guns come out and they’re pissed that they work their asses off every night to make TNA the best wrestling company in the world while the so called stars are partying and here just to collect a paycheck. They challenge Main Event Mafia to a five on five elimination match at Final Resolution and the winners will hold all the gold, every championship in TNA. Main Event Mafia accept the match and promise that after Final Resolution that the Front Line will learn to respect the veterans.
And of course, just because it’s the best heat in the world, The Mafia batter Mick Foley on the go home show.
Final Resolution 2008
Main Event Mafia(c) def. TNA Front Line(c) in a Five on Five Elimination Winner Takes All Match to hold all the gold
The match is action packed and never slows downs. Everyone put in a great effort before we get down to AJ Styles vs Sting and Kurt Angle. AJ fights valiantly, giving it everything he’s got. Buy the numbers game is too much for him and Sting pins Styles once again. Now, The Main Event Mafia holds all the gold. Sting has the World Heavyweight Championship, Kurt Angle has the X-Division Championship, Scott Steiner has the Legends Championship, and Kevin Nash and Booker T have the World Tag Team Titles. What does this mean for the future of TNA? When will the reign of terror end? Or will it ever?
Build to Genesis 2009
Main Event Mafia celebrate their big win at Final Resolution by taking over an episode of Impact!. Sting beats up Mick Foley with the baseball bat before the show and takes his spot as commissioner for the episode. We have that really entertaining episode where Kevin Nash and Booker T are on commentary for the whole show, and Scott Steiner is the ring announcer. Sting all the while makes matches where the Mafia beat up the younger lower midcarders of TNA, just being total dicks.
Samoa Joe goes up to Mick Foley next week and demands the rematch he never got for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. Foley responds thst he’d love to but they have all the leverage right now and there’s nothing Mick can do. So, Joe launches a revenge campaign against Main Event Mafia and attacks them during their matches. Scott Steiner challenges “that fat out of shape wannabe Samoan” to a match at Genesis and Joe agrees, but not for the title because the only title that matter to him is the World Heavyweight Championship.
Mick once again announces matches for Genesis. Petey Williams will invoke his rematch against Kurt Angle for Genesis, while Motor City Machine Guns will challenge Kevin Nash and Booker T for the TNA World Tag Team Championships.
Jeff Jarrett steps up, having been gone for a few months while The Front Line and Mafia’s war took place. Jarrett says he created TNA as a platform for young guys to get an opportunity that they wouldn’t get anywhere else. TNA is not a place for old timers to coast of their reputation to collect a paycheck. Jarrett says Foley might not be able to step up, but he sure as hell can. He challenges Sting to the World Heavyweight Championship, since Jarrett still has a stake in TNA, he’s able to pull some strings and enlist Mick Foley as the special guest referee stacking the odds against Sting for once.
Genesis 2009
Kurt Angle(c) def Petey Williams to retain the X-Division Championship
We have a great opening match where Petey Williams looks great and comes so close to beating Kurt Angle after hitting a Canadian Destroyer but ultimately he succumbs to the Ankle Lock and has no choice but to tap out.
Samoa Joe def. Scott Steiner
Samoa Joe defeats Steiner in a 10 minute match making him pass out to the rear naked choke.
Kevin Nash and Booker T(c) def. Motor City Machine Guns to retain the TNA World Tag Team Championships
Nash and Booker retain the titles in dominant fashion.
Jeff Jarrett vs Sting(c) /w Mick Foley as the special guest referee for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship
We get to the match we’ve all been waiting for. The two are having a good match, everything is going fair, Mick is doing well enforcing the match, when all of a sudden The Main Event Mafia attack Jarrett but instead of calling for the bell, Foley chases them off with Jarrett’s guitar. Jarrett gets up and asks for the guitar, but Foley looks at it for a moment and whacks Jarrett with it allowing Sting to win the match. SWERVE! Mick Foley turns on TNA. As if The Main Event Mafia couldn’t get more powerful, they now have the damn commissioner on their side. TNA is their show now.
Build to Against All Odds 2009:
Mick Foley joins The Main Event Mafia. Huge news, and the big angle heading into Impact! is “Mick Foley explains his actions”. Mick says ever since he’s came to TNA, he has sympathised with the Front Line big. He formed the group. But he realised why would he be on the losing side? He’s Mick god damn Foley. He doesn’t need to hang out with a bunch of losers who will never be as good as the legends. He is a legend himself, so he decided he’d become one of the boys, and embrace it. Mick runs the show, thanks to Jeff Jarrett, so as long as he’s in charge, The Mafia will rule the roost.
Jay Lethal and Consequences Creed both step up to challenge Kurt Angle for the X-Division Championship making everyone think that Angle will lose because Creed and Lethal are tag team partners and they say it doesn’t matter which one of them wins as long as Kurt Angle loses.
Jarrett is infuriated about Mick Foley. He wants to destroy Mick Foley, and take TNA back. He doesn’t have full control like Foley does, but he still has some. So he books himself into a Hardcore Match with Foley for Against All Odds. He tries to make it if Foley loses he has to step down, but he doesn’t have the power to do so and Foley isn’t willing to accept that challenge. Jarrett promises nonetheless he will bloody and batter Mick Foley.
Scott Steiner is walking backstage when he finds his ex protege Petey Williams. Scott says he put in a hell of a showing against Kurt Angle and offers him a spot in Main Event Mafia, but Williams calls Steiner a traitor. He abandoned the people who shared the locker room with him, he abandoned TNA. All for what? To dick around with a bunch of old dudes. Petey spits on his boots and a backstage brawl breaks out, because Steiner feels he’s being disrespected. This sets up a match for the Legends title at Against All Odds.
Samoa Joe is still on his revenge tour and this time he targets Booker T. They have a match at Against All Odds.
Rhino is offered a spot in Main Event Mafia but Rhino turns it down as he says after ECW closed, TNA was the only company who took a chance on him and he won’t betray them by joining the likes of Main Event Mafia, which prompts Sting to attack Rhino with a bat setting up a match at Against All Odds.
Against All Odds 2009
Kurt Angle(c) def. Consequences Creed vs Jay Lethal to retain the X Division Championship
Most of the match consists of Creed and Lethal ganging up on Kurt Angle but when Creed goes for the pin, Lethal breaks it up and they both realise they want to be the champion, and they start fighting. The fight ends with Lethal hitting the Lethal Injection on Creed but as he goes to pin him, Kurt Angle throws Lethal out of the ring and pins Creed to retain the title. The sneaky bastard.
Samoa Joe def. Booker T /w Kevin Nash
Samoa Joe wins the match and afterwards is laid out by Kevin Nash.
** Mick Foley def. Jeff Jarrett in a Hardcore match**
We see a more aggressive and a more sinister side of Mick Foley which we haven’t quite seen yet in TNA, he’s pulling on his hair, he’s screaming at Jarrett, and he practically murders the poor man. He busts him open with several rights and lefts, making him bleed and scream. Foley wallops him with a steel chair, pushes him off a ladder through a table, and at one point hits an Alabama Slam onto a pile of thumbtacks. Foley makes Jarrett pass out to the Mandible Claw to win the match. Jarrett is demolished.
Scott Steiner(c) def. Petey Williams to retain the Legends Championship
During the build to this match, Steiner targeted Williams knee and it shows in the match because Williams can’t execute most of his high flying offence. He finally he gains the upper hand late in the match and is about to hit the Canadian Destroyer but his knee gives out and Steiner capitalises, nailing a Steiner Screwdriver to win the match and retaining the title.
Sting def. Rhino to retain the TNA World Heavyweight Championship
Sting wins the match retaining the title after Kevin Nash interferes and they beat down Rhino until Team 3-D come out to even the odds.
Build to Destination X 2009
Samoa Joe wants a match against Kevin Nash at Destination X and if Joe wins he gets a shot at Sting’s World Heavyweight Title. Nash says I’ve beaten you before and I’ll beat you again.
Kurt Angle is forced to defend his title against five men in an Ultimate X Match by Jeff Jarrett using the creative control he has. Those men are: Consequences Creed, Jay Lethal, Eric Young, Suicide and Sonjay Dutt.
Petey Williams wants one more shot at Steiner’s Legends Championship but to make that happen, he has to go through Booker T at Destination X in order to get his shot.
Mick Foley is called out by A.J. Styles as a TNA traitor. AJ says he should have never trusted Mick and that he should have never been signed in the first place. He has no reason to be here other than to collect a paycheck like everyone else in The Mafia. He challenges Mick to an Xtreme Match (weapons based X Division match) at Destination X, which Mick accepts, before attacking him with the Mandible Claw. He tries to do again a few weeks later but he fails.
Rhino challenges Sting to a Full Metal Mayhem match and Team 3-D will be at ringside to make sure nothing happens, which will ensure we have a fair clean match.
Destination X 2009
Petey Williams def. Booker T
Booker T dominates most of the match, but Petey Williams has no quit in him and gets the surprise victory after hitting a Crossbody on Booker T. After the match, Booker T hits a Scissors Kick on Williams for revenge. Scott Steiner comes down and says “I said if you won you get your title shot and that match is happening right now.”
** Petey Williams def. Scott Steiner(c) to become the new TNA Legends Championship**
Steiner takes advantage of an exhausted Petey Williams but cannot put him away. Williams is finally able to hit the Canadian Destroyer on Scott Steiner to win the match and the TNA Legends Championship.
A.J. Styles def. Mick Foley in an Xtreme Match
AJ and Mick go back and forth in a weapons filled war, featuring spots like Mick going through several barbed wire boards, AJ jumping off ladders, and a Springboard 450 Splash to the outside through a table seals the deal and gives AJ the win. Afterwards Mick puts AJ through a barbed wire board.
Samoa Joe def. Kevin Nash
Nash comes into this match as cocky as ever but is beaten down by Samoa Joe, badly. This match is completely one sided and Joe wins by referee stoppage because he beat Nash so badly.
Sting(c) vs Rhino Full Metal Mayhem match for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship
This match is brutal and we see a lot of blood, Booker T tries to interfere but eats a 3-D through a table. Eventually though, Sting climbs the ladder and retains the title clean much to the dismay of Team 3-D.
Build to Lockdown 2009
AJ Styles shows up on Impact!, fresh off his bloody and brutal beatdown at the hands of Mick Foley. AJ arrives to assemble a team to take on Main Event Mafia at Lockdown in a Lethal Lockdown Match. He says the Front Line have returned and he’s got TNA’s best and brightest on his side. His team consists of Jeff Jarrett, Jay Lethal and Petey Williams. Main Event accepts the challenge. The Main Event Mafia will consist of Kevin Nash, Booker T, Kurt Angle and Mick Foley. Sting makes a point of excluding Steiner from the match and Steiner loses his temper which causes him to get attacked by Main Event Mafia meaning Steiner is officially out of the group.
During the build, Petey Williams loses the Legends Championship to Mick Foley. Foley is now on a violent streak, trying to take Petey out of the match. We head into the event unknown if Petey will make it back in time for the Lethal Lockdown Match.
Samoa Joe will get his long awaited rematch for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship against Sting in a Six Sides of Steel Match.
Lockdown 2009
TNA Front Line def. The Main Event Mafia in a Lethal Lockdown match
This match goes 30 minutes and TNA Front Line win big after AJ Styles pins Kevin Nash.
Samoa Joe def. Sting(c) in a Six Sides of Steel Match to become the new TNA World Heavyweight Championship
Finally, the rematch six months in the making has arrived. Joe has been destroying Kevin Nash at every turn to get here. It comes down to this and the two men go to war with each other. Sting seems to have the match won when he makes it to the top of the cage, but Samoa Joe hurries up the cage and locks in a rear naked choke on Sting and they both fall off the cage down to the mat. The ring caves him but Joe never lets go of the hold. Sting passes out to the hold, once again, Samoa Joe regains the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.
Build to Sacrifice 2009
Scott Steiner returns from injury and wants revenge on Main Event Mafia and enlists his old protege Petey Williams to help him take down Main Event Mafia starting with taking the World Tag Team Titles from Kevin Nash and Booker T.
Kurt Angle has an X-Division Title defense against AJ Styles at Sacrifice.
Jeff Jarrett will get a rematch with Mick Foley and this time it’ll be for the TNA Legends Championship. Mick Foley has been violently attacking people for months and has held onto the Legends Championship like it’s his baby. He will not let go of it. Mick demands the match be No Disqualification, and Jarrett is conflicted. He knows in this environment Mick excels, but he wants the Legends Championship. Jarrett, begrudgingly, accepts.
Sting invokes his rematch clause against Samoa Joe for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.
Sacrifice 2009
** AJ Styles def. Kurt Angle(c) to become new TNA X-Division Championship**
AJ and Kurt have an amazing opening match to start off the night with AJ Styles picking up the surprise victory to get the crowd hot for tonight’s show.
Petey Williams and Scott Steiner def. Kevin Nash and Booker T(c) to become new TNA World Tag Team Championship
Williams and Steiner win after miscommunication from Booker T and Scott Steiner allowing Williams to pin Nash.
** Mick Foley(c) def. Jeff Jarrett to retain the TNA Legends Championship**
Despite Jarrett’s best efforts, Mick Foley retains the gold in a brutal hard hitting match. Once again, Mick Foley has defeated Jeff Jarrett. He goes to put Jarrett through a flaming table, but Jarrett puts Mick through it instead.
Sting vs Samoa Joe(c) TNA World Heavyweight Championship
Joe wins the rematch in a close hard fought battle.
Build to Slammiversary 2009
TNA Front Line has been kicking ass for the past few months and things are falling apart in The Main Event Mafia, Booker T and Kevin Nash are at each other’s throats, Mick Foley isn’t taking things seriously, Kurt Angle lost the X-Division Title and Sting has taken a few weeks off after his loss to Samoa Joe.
Booker T and Kevin Nash face off in a match to blow off some steam and the match goes to a double count out while they’re brawling outside the ring. Kurt Angle comes out to separate them and tells them “what’s wrong with you both? We need to be united and show these punks in the back who the stars are.” This is able to defuse the tension between Kevin Nash and Booker T.
Abyss wants to wreak havoc on the faction that wants to destroy a company he’s been apart of since it’s inception and challenges Mick Foley to a monsters ball match for the Legends Championship. Mick gladly accepts and tells Abyss he’s been doing the crazy shit Abyss does since before Abyss even stepped foot in a ring.
We have our annual King of the Mountain match for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Slammiversary and it will be Samoa Joe defending against Kurt Angle, Booker T, Rhino and Sting.
Slammiversary 2009
”The Monster” Abyss def. Mick Foley(c) in a Monster’s Ball Match to become the new TNA Legends Championship

Samoa Joe(c) vs Kurt Angle vs Booker T vs Rhino vs Sting King of the Mountain match for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship
This match goes 30 minutes and everyone looks good. We notice that Sting has a new sort of fire in his eyes and more of the will to win and he’s fighting more like a face than he is a heel. Sting has the match won and looks to be regaining his World Title. He climbs the ladder but Team 3-D slide in to the ring and hit the 3-D on Sting. Then, Rhino gets up and asks Team 3-D “what are you doing?”, then they 3-D Rhino. They pick up Kurt Angle and help him up the ladder. Kurt Angle wins the match regaining the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. Team 3-D have joined The Main Event Mafia.
Build to Victory Road 2009
Team 3-D explain that they have joined The Main Event Mafia because they want to be on the winning side. They know what it’s like to be a star and they’re not siding with these curtain jerkers that will take TNA no where in the long run. They challenge that traitor Scott Steiner and Petey Williams for the TNA World Tag Team Championships. Kurt Angle explains that Sting was weak and The Main Event Mafia was falling apart with him at the helm, so with Kurt Angle as the new Godfather of The Main Event Mafia they will reclaim their former glory. Sting wants revenge against Kurt Angle but in order to do so he has to beat Team 3-D in a handicap match tonight on Impact!.
We get to the match and Team 3-D have the match won when Samoa Joe’s music hits distracting Team 3-D allowing Sting to roll up Brother Ray to win the match. Samoa Joe uses a steel chair to clear out Team 3-D and he teases using the chair on Sting, but instead he shakes Sting’s hand and at Victory Road it will be Kurt Angle vs Sting vs Samoa Joe for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.
We have a six man Ultimate X match to determine the #1 contender for the X-Division Championship but the sixth man doesn’t enter until towards the end of the match. When all men are taken out by Matt Morgan, Kevin Nash walks out in his suit with a ladder and climbs the ladder to retrieve the X becoming #1 contender for the TNA X-Division Championship and the announcers are insulted that Kevin Nash disrespected the X-Division like this.
Matt Morgan explains that he was paid off by Main Event Mafia to be their new special enforcer.
Booker T and Mick Foley will face The Monster Abyss for the TNA Legends Championship in a Triple Threat Match. Foley says he didn’t even get hurt at Slammiversary, that was a day at the beach for him. He is going to make Abyss bleed and scream like he never had before, and with the help of Booker T, the Legends Championship will be back with The Mafia.
Victory Road 2009
Kevin Nash def. AJ Styles(c) to win the TNA X-Division Championship

Kurt Angle(c) def. Sting vs Samoa Joe to retain the TNA World Heavyweight Championship
The Main Event Mafia attack Sting backstage taking him out of the match. Now it’s only Kurt Angle vs Samoa Joe and they have an amazing 20 minute match where Angle gets the win beating Joe clean the one thing Sting could never do.
Build to Hard Justice 2009
The Main Event Mafia once again hold all the gold and Kurt Angle brags that he beat Samoa Joe clean as a damn whistle, something that Sting could never do and because of that he doesn’t have the need to face Sting because Angle has already proven he’s better than him. Jim Cornette, a new authority figure in TNA, says “not so fast Angle, you will face Sting for the TNA World Heavyweight Title at Hard Justice and everyone is banned from ringside to ensure a fair match and if you’re disqualified or counted out you lose the title.” Kurt is very annoyed.
Petey Williams and Scott Steiner invoke their rematch clause against Team 3-D and this time it will be a tables match.
Booker T will face abyss in a Last Man Standing Match for the TNA Legends Championship. Mick Foley is still annoyed at Booker T, and with how crazy Mick is, Booker is terrified about Foley going into the event. Mick says he’ll be in Booker’s corner the whole time, watching...
Oddly enough, AJ Styles doesn’t appear on Impact and doesn’t invoke his rematch clause for the X-Division Championship instead we see him have private meetings with Jim Cornette and no one knows why, so Kevin Nash further disrespects the X-Division and takes the night off at Hard Justice.

Build to Final Resolution 2009:

Stevie then gets someone who can control The Monster, Raven. Raven becomes the therapist for Abyss, and the two seem to have a connection, since Abyss doesn’t act out on Raven like he did with Dr. Stevie.
Mick Foley sympathies with Abyss and begins to get closer with him, despite their beef from a few months ago, Foley says in and interview him and Abyss are beginning to understand each other more.
Raven proclaims in a promo, that Abyss has been healed....SIKE! Raven brainwashed Abyss into following Dr. Stevie’s orders, and he was working for Stevie the whole time. Foley due to his new friendship with Abyss, is able to convince him not to listen to Dr. Stevie, and not calm down. He needs t embrace his craziness.

Final Resolution 2010:
Mick Foley and Abyss def. Dr. Stevie and Raven in a Foley’s Funhouse Match

Build to Genesis:
Instead of Abyss becoming obsessed with Hulk Hogan, and instead of the godawful “Abyssamania” storyline, Abyss becomes obsessed with the “Hardcore Legend” Mick Foley. Abyss and Foley become a tag team. On the 1/4 episode of Monday Night Impact!, Mick Foley is seen training Abyss on how to be more violent.
Later in the night, Abyss fights Samoa Joe, but loses. Afterwards, Abyss heats up Joe really badly using weapons. He’s given Janice by Foley which he uses to make Joe bleed.
Mick Foley and Abyss get into feud with the newly debuted Fortune. Spearheaded by Ric Flair, lead by Desmond Wolfe, and also represented by Beer Money and Kaz, the two get heated. Wolfe and Abyss are confirmed to have a match at Genesis, but Abyss is under pressure from Hulk Hogan to not use weapons.
Genesis 2010:
Desmond Wolfe def. Abyss to retain the TNA Television Championship
Wolfe gets under Abyss’ skin, mocking him for how he looks and acts. Ric Flair torments him, waving a barbed wire bat in front of his face, but Mick Foley gets into it with Flair. Kaz distracts the referee which allows Wolfe to nail Abyss with a chair shot. This annoys Abyss and Mick greatly, because he just won with what Abyss has been forbidden to use.
Build to Against All Odds 2010:
The 8 Card Stud Tournament is announced, an 8-man knockout tournament that will entirely take place at Against All Odds, with the winner becoming #1 Contenders to the TNA World Championship, and thus getting a match any time on Impact!

Against All Odds:
Abyss def. Hernandez to advance in the 8 Card Stud Tournament
Abyss and Hernandez have a tooth and nail brawl with lots of hard hits and scary bumps. Abyss wins and advances forth.
Kurt Angle def. Abyss to advance in the 8 Card Stud Tournament
Abyss and Angle go back and forth for a long while, with Abyss getting so close to sealing that victory many times, but he’s always shut down. His inability to keep the grappler down frustrates him so much, that Angle catches him with an Olympic Slam from outta nowhere to win. Afterwards, Abyss throws another post-Match tantrum, but this is more violent than the last few. At one point, he puts hands on his mentor, Mick Foley. Foley gets hold of Abyss and diffuses the situation, escorting him to the back.
First departure:
Abyss is still mad and in a promo between him and Foley, he’s circling around the ring in rage. Foley says that he will get Abyss a World Championship Match, but fails to do so. Abyss then snaps, tired of Foley, tired of not being allowed to be violent and wanting glory. He beats down Mick, gives him a Black Hole Slam onto thumbtacks, and leaves him laying. This writes Mick off TV which he had to do in real life, due to him being on his way to exceed the maximum number of dates per year on his contract, at the pace he was making appearances.
Return:
Mick Foley return to Impact! as part of the ECW Invasion. Tommy Dreamer, Raven, Taz, Sandman, Rob Van Dam, Rhino and Sabu all are in the ring, cutting a promo on how they will takeover TNA and model in the image that should of existed since the inception. ECW is wrestling done right, and they’re going to change TNA. Mick Foley returns and becomes their spokesperson since he’s the best promo of the lot. They demand what they want off Hulk Hogan, and when he says no, they start wrecking shows.
Build to Hardcore Justice 2010:
Hulk Hogan cuts a promo on the ECW guys, saying he is going to unleash a monster that would of been right at home in ECW upon them all, and then they can decide if they still want to go. Abyss in unleashed.
A match is made for Hardcore Justice, Abyss vs. Tommy Dreamer in a Monster’s Ball Match. If Abyss wins; the ECW guys must stop their demands and either leave or be a part of the roster, if Dreamer wins; TNA must give ECW their own brand.
Mick Foley is made special guest referee and the big story heading in is will Foley stay loyal to ECW, or does he still care about his former protege.
Hardcore Justice 2010:
Abyss def. Tommy Dreamer in a Monster’s Ball Match with Mick Foley as special guest referee
It’s classic ECW; overbooked, Extreme, blood, guts and a bingo hall. Abyss comfortably wins after a Black Hole Slam onto thumbtacks. Team 3D then come out and powerbomb one of the ECW guys through a flaming table. Mick Foley looks like he’s going to side with Abyss, but he’s then slammed onto the tacks.
Foley would apologise for all his actions he’s down, and slowly become more human again. Two years after his debut, he comes full circle, being named Commissioner of TNA alongside President - Dixie Carter, and Hogan and Bischoff as EVP’s. He’d remain in this description until he asks for is release in mid-2011.

The camera then pans over to Golden Bryce who is staring up at the night Dubai sky as he slowly rolls out of the ring and walks up the ramp with his head down. The camera pans back to Ruckus holding up his first world title as The Set has him standing up right. Huge pyro explodes over Rashid Stadium as Ruckus now raises the belt high and he's being lifted up by his faction: The Set. We see Bryce emotionless walking up the ramp in disbelief. Show ends

2020.04.30 11:05 Kelix1 Some suggestions

Hello, a few suggestions.
  1. Possibility to remove "users", its just me who uses your app and I don't want to see the 8 users that exist in the settings.
  2. XTreme server API capability.
  3. Ability to sort content by date added so we can see new episodes/movies etc
I also have an issue where certain channels won't play on iProTV however they play fine on my Apple TV or other apps.

2020.04.22 19:17 one2escape Stadia Super Saturday returns this Saturday full schedule

Hi everyone! Stadia Super Saturday returns this Saturday and it kicks off at 10 am UK, 5am EDT 2am PST. This is a day worth of events purely about Stadia! The schedule is below and who is taking part. Some of the events are being finalized but there will podcasts, talk shows, play-alongs, community events to take part in. We also have increased offerings in other languages as well with French and Spanish events running alongside the main event.
This day is a celebration of all things Stadia and we hope everyone who watches or takes part enjoys themselves. If you are new to Stadia jump into these streams and ask questions, take part, and get involved. The Stadia community as a whole is brilliant and very supportive and tries to help or offer advice. The last Stadia Super Saturday was a great success and some people managed to watch the whole day! We didn't think we would have one as soon as this but events made us re-evaluate things.
We have a wide range of content creators taking part in some you may know and some you do not. Everyone is different so hopefully there will be someone you will watch and enjoy. This event is about you the Stadia community and we all hope to highlight how amazing you all are! You can also check out the Stadia First article!

2020.03.03 19:27 ginley88 Feedback about my Toaster (old PC)

Hey there, I've been a VMWare/SysEngineer for a little over five years now, and I'm new to this reddit. I apologize in advance if my question is outside the scope of the sub, but I figure I'd ask the best of the best here for their input regarding something I'm on fence about, mostly because I'm just stingy and like tinkering w/ systems.
I have an 11 year old toaster that performs alright, but it's definitely getting time for an upgrade: 3.4 GHz 4 core Phenom II 965 Black, Radeon 5870, and 12gb ram ddr3, mostly 1333-1600 mhz. I also have a PNY SSD and a spinner. I mainly play World of Warcraft, and raids are getting me about 9-20 fps in combat on 720p low settings. Outside of raids is great, about 50-90 FPS. I play full screen. My TV is 1080i, and my resolution is 1366x768.
Would I be better off saving for a new system or do you think it's worth maybe popping in a 5700xt and seeing if it breathes new life into it? FYI I've swapped in an 800w PSU into the system since the last couple fried.
After checking perfmon, note that my CPU never reaches over 70% use while WoW is open. CPU seems fine, could maybe use a new SSD with more rd/wr, but was just curious of your all's input.
Otherwise, here's what I'm thinking baseline for a new system if it isn't truly worth it: 3970x, 5700XT, Firecuda M.2 1Gb, 32GB 4k Mhz. MoBo and other accessories don't necessarily matter, just as long as the board can support the bus speeds of my new equipment. I'm also open to other recommendations to test the waters.
Thanks again for your time and help!

2020.02.06 19:21 MDFMKanic Amiga CD32 Support Added! Avengers United Battle Force Fixed for OpenBOR! Core Set Update for S-NESC-PSC AND MD Mini Classics!

Release Link at bottom:)
01-11-2020
Hot Fixes only apply to MD-S-NESC:)
RetroArch Xtreme Ozone & XMB Hot Fix. Thanks for the heads up bslenul, madmonkey, TheWez1981:)
Hot Fix Posted. Cores from SNES9x 2016-Yabause all Fixed:) Simply redownload, apply, enjoy! Thank You!
I will be posting a hot fix update later today. Unfortunately, due to a hard drive crash, roughly a dozen Cores are corrupt. They will be reposted, sometime today. Thanks for your patience, and sorry for any convenience:) These are primarily some of the Cores that were resting on a bad sector, between the letters of S-Z.
01-10-2020
It has been a wonderful 3 years with you Guys & Gals in the Mini Classic Scene! Remember, everyone, flesh out your dates, so noone can "hack" an extension onto them! 1-10-20 easily becomes 1-10-2021, 2022, etc! So, by completing it as 01-10-2020, chances of fraud are far less of a potential possibility! Stay safe!
Aside from working some Overtime, I was finally able to catch up on a few movies I wanted to see, such as Knives Out, Jo Jo Rabbit, Ford vs. Ferrari, and so on! All were fun movies, and it will be an interesting Oscar Contender change-up, this time around! Personally, my favored choice is the truly unique and fun foreign movie called Parasite! It is a genre changer, which is fun. I always got a kick out of movies that abruptly switch from genre to genre, such as From Dusk Til Dawn, Mel Gibson's Payback (in that case, due to directorial change!), and the Grindhouse Tarantino/Rodriguez mash-ups (most fun theatrical experience I have had in years:)!
TV Wise, finished up Mandalorian! I am now currently on You, the Netflix Series about a Sociopath, not too far removed from Dexter! And, being a huge horror fan, I found it interesting noticing the main female actress from You, also in the low key but decent horror movie called Countdown! If you love horror, like me, then you will likely be the type to check out about any horror movie that comes along! The general premise for Countdown is an APP one can download, that predicts when the recipient of said APP will meet their demise. Reminds me of a silly take on the not reading the fine print APPLE agreement episode of South Park:)
Video Game wise, finished up Jedi Fallen Order...not half bad! I found myself getting irritated by the unnecessary loading on most newer games, and some of the XBOX Subscription Games I downloaded, I just canceled out of pretty fast! I am very much Retro Gamer, and you simply don't have load times on 99.5 percent of Retro Games on any given moment of any day! Push Start, Play The Game! Still surprised by how different an experience it was playing the PC version of Legacy of Kain: Blood Omen, versus the terrible PS1 Port, which has tons and tons and tons of excruciating load times! I can handle load times, to a degree. But, right up there with unskippable cut scenes, they can get quickly irritating if they go unchecked:)
In any case, some wonderful toys to peruse for your enjoyment, this time around!
My Philosophy!
In this and any other Scene I have been a part of...my philosophy has been one in the same! I do my best to creatively put out stuff for others to enjoy, and help ease the stress in their daily lives! This has involved lots and lots of testing, communication with End Users, Developers, coding changes, and overall collaboration with hundreds upon hundreds of people! It really isn't a whole lot different than when I have been involved within other Scenes, including Code Breaker for Dreamcast/GBA, way way back, as well as various Emulations.
I have clearly shown that I am supportive of other Modifications, and have even helped troubleshoot many an End User with all of them! We have, just alone for PSC (Playstation Classic), some incredible modifications...such as AutoBleem, RetroBoot, and my personal Xtreme Injector Set-Up! Each of you has a choice to try these, and decide which you prefer! Same holds true for Libretro (FCEUmm, Nestopia, QuickNES, and so on!), and, of course, in reality! IE: Pepsi, Coca-Cola, Sprite, Dr Pepper; Ruffles, Pringles, Lays, Doritos! Choice is an everyday factor in life:)
Thank You!
I have made many friends in this and other Scenes! I thank all of you who I have come into contact with, day in and day out...End Users and Developers and everyone else! Those who consistently keep in contact with me, even just to say, "Hey, what's up!" You rock, too! No matter how someone treats you, do your best to be positive forward thinking. I am the type, that is someone did make fun of say..my speech impediment. And, they were broken down on the side of the road...I WOULD stop and help them! Many of you have seen how utterly patient I have been with them during extended troubleshooting sessions! I enjoy the end result of the person at the other end, seeing the reality of what they envision to happen, come true! Just don't give up easily, as yeah...Hell Yeahz! You CAN do about anything you put your mind to! If you want to be a master craftsman of something, keep at it! A few insults here and there should never stop you from what you want to do!
As usual, I can't go over EVERY thing that made it into the Release. I covered the most notable things, of course:) So, some things will be covered in Videos and follow-up Release Notes! I will also get some more Drumming in!!!
Hakchi2 CE NOW Fully Supports MD Mini Classic! (Mini MD)
Hakchi2 CE
https://github.com/TeamShinkansen/hakchi2/releases/
While all of you have been sleeping, madmonkey and DanTheMan827 have been working around the clock for several months now on MD Mini Classic Integration for via hakchi2 CE! Refer to the aforementioned link for the multitude of new features, fixes, and plethora of options added! One of my favorites is easily "additional, previously unusable space". This affects Mini MD-S-NESC!
The first MD Mini hakchi2 implementation allowed for RetroArch usage! Now, we have the real deal, full on...nearly exactly like NES/SNES Mini modding convenience, down to great perks, such as USB-HOST, Bluetooth, etc! There were many facets to account for with finding a nice harmonious, universal, application of hakchi for Mini MD/SNES/NES! But, that is now very much a reality, with hakchi 3.7.0!
Easy Overclock Updated for MD Mini! (Mini MD)
Thanks bslenul, for making it possible to use Xtreme Overclock, Toggled On/Off, with the simple push of a button, on the MD Mini, as well as the SNES-NESC! Easy Overclock is available in Mod Hub!
MAME 2003 Xtreme Updated with Support for Street Fighter II Arcade Custom OST! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Thanks to the beautiful original work and efforts of Big Blue Frontend, who is directly responsible for the method of finding hooks and swapping them out with CD Music Tracks, for the Custom OSTs, we now have yet another gem...none other than Street Fighter II Arcade! I cannot tell you how many times I have played this fantastic game over the years! In Xtras/Arcade/Samples, are the sfii.zip samples you will need to pull this off! It works most optimally with PSC, for now. It DOES, as well with MD-SNES-NES. But, it may crash to the main menu due to memory load limitations. This is easily the largest Custom OST of the bunch! This will be fixed up for the Next Release!
I give huge thanks to gpstar for taking the time to convert c++ coding of Big Blue Frontend into mame c coding for MAME 2003 Xtreme implementation, as well as the invariably amazing grant2258, who helped clean up sample stop issues!
Big Blue Frontend did an informative video related to the Street Fighter II Samples, at:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4rg1xkktPbo
He also has done some truly fantastical, built from the ground up, c++ coded Final Fight stuff. Be sure to check his other videos out, for this amazing stuff in action!
Thanks again, Big Blue Frontend, for helping make Custom OSTs with Arcade Games, such a beautiful thing to enjoy on the Mini Classics!
Amiga CD32 Support Added! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Thanks RNS8887 and Sonninnos for their incredible work with the Amiga/Commodore 64 Cores! And, thanks madmonkey for helping with the fixing up of the build work for this particular implementation of CD32! We now have full on Amiga CD32 Support! And, it works on ALL of the Minis! For BIOS, you will need:
kick40060.CD32, kick40060.CD32.ext (Amiga CD32), which can be installed via Master BIOS Module on MD-S-NES, and manually in system on PSC! Enjoy!
P.S. Cannon Fodder on Amiga CD32 is an exceptionally great venture that is easily the best port of said game!
Sega Saturn has performance/speed improvements! (Mini PSC ONLY!)
Incremental Performance and Speed Boost for Sega Saturn Games, this time around! Expect more fix-ups Next Release! Any games that have issues, feel free to let me know about, and I will see what I can do about them! Again, this is ONLY PSC, and will NOT work on any other Mini Classics, anytime soon!
Note: Due to the intricacies involved with finding a fine median for performance and speed, there will be a select number of games that need specialized set-ups to properly work. Two notable ones, you can run, for now...simply by having them named exactly as follows: Legend_of_Oasis and Astal This is with the Xtreme Injector set-up. If not named exactly as stated, you will have graphic glitches with Oasis, and non-boot with Astal. Looking forward to feedback, so as to account for other games that may have issues! For now, a majority run great with this latest Update, especially the SHMUPS I have previously showcased in videos, as well as Three Dirty Dwarves, Guardian Heroes, etc! Have fun!
Turbo Fire Fixed for Turbografx-16/CD! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
X, Y/ Square Triangle toggle Turbo 1/2 On/Off. This is absolutely awesome for many PCE/PCE-CD Games! Thanks to any and all who have ever worked on PCE Emulators/Cores, etc! One of my favorite games to play with Turbo Fire is Irem's incomparable port of the Arcade Great game Ninja Spirit! It is one of the first games to ever score a perfect review in more than one video game magazine, for being such a faithful port of the game, to begin with!
Doom Core Glitches/Crashes Cleaned Up! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Thanks bslenul for bringing this to my attention, as well as any others who also reported to me. Crashing and Graphics Glitches are cleaned up...midi support intact!
OpenBOR for PSC, for Realz! (Mini PSC)
Thanks to the beautiful collaboration of screemer of the AutoBleem Team, we now have full fledged and absolutely true and certifiable OpenBOR implementation on PSC. I did what I could to help with performance speed and overall optimization, per usual! And, guess what, guys and gals...TMNT Rescue Palooza fully works! Yes!!! Those on MD/SNES/NES, don't fret. TMNT will be fixed in a near future Release for you guys and gals, too!
Install the latest AutoBleem from PSC folder, and then push select button a few times on the Main Menu (not RetroArch) to access OpenBOR! Game Paks can be copied to the appropriately named Pak folder!
Avengers United Battle Force OpenBOR Fixed for the Mini Classics (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Thank you Douglas Baldan, aka O Illusionista, for such dedication to the OpenBOR game Avengers United Battle Force. This game had always crashed for us on the Mini Classics, until we took the time to dig a little deeper and debug exactly why it was crashing! I am now pleased to say, we now have a special, fixed up version that runs on ALL 4 of the Mini Classics! It is in on the Google Drive Link, Xtras, Games, OpenBOR! Thank you Mr. Baldan, as well as the original efforts of Doom and Jhfer, in this truly amazing example of a masterpiece OpenBOR game!
You can see this game in action in the video links below! I will do future videos showcasing this again, as well!
Lastly, a manual, to help you along...is at: http://brazilmugenteam.com/avengers/
Enjoy the game!!!
OpenBOR Games Galore! ((Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
Google Drive Link, Xtras, Games, OpenBOR, I upped several hundred plus OpenBOR Games for you to peruse on all 4 of the Mini Classics! Compatibility is hit and miss. So, keep that in mind! For the moment, PSC has the better overall compatibility. But, MD/S-NESC Minis will likely have near close approximation with compatibility in a near future, if not the Next Update! I have MORE OpenBOR games I may add, as well. So, keep checking back! And, once End User feedback comes in, we will have a more comprehensive listing of what does and does not work! You will ONLY need the .pak files from each of the uploaded games!
Amiberry (Amiga) for PSC (Better AGA!), also for Realz! (Mini PSC)
We all know AGA games run awful on our lower spec Mini Classics. But, they actually run better via standalone emulator, Amiberry! I, again, collaborated with screemer of the AutoBleem Team, and helped with general optimization, performance, speed, and AGA games are actually running admirably now! Aladdin, Chaos Engine, etc, run quite nicely, considering! The needed BIOS are detailed in the ReadMe, when first opening the Emulator. Install the latest AutoBleem from PSC folder, and then push select button a few times on the Main Menu (not RetroArch) to access Amiberry! BIOS ARE absolutely required! These go in the kickstarts folder! At a minimum, you will need kick31.rom and kick40068.A1200 (named exactly as preceding!) AKA Kickstart v3.1 rev 40.68 (1993)(Commodore)(A1200).rom if loading the KMFD Xtreme Configuration File when opening Amiberry! I will do a video tutorial about the proper set-up within the next couple of days to make things easier to manage!
Bonus DOOM Games! (Mini PSC)
Thanks screemer for working this in, as well as any who have ever worked on the original games! Install latest AutoBleem, go to Main UI, push select a few times, then you will have a Doom App Icon! Enjoy the bonus Doom Games! Thanks again screemer!
RetroArch Xtreme Updated for All Mini Classics! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
For MD-S-NESC, you will have in the Mod Hub, two choices for main GUI with RetroArch Xtreme! One is Ozone, which is similar to Nintendo Switch. The other is XMB, which is like PS3/PSP! The XMB is set-up in such a way to be RetroCat Themed:) If you want to use your "own" wallpapers, use the wallpaper HMOD, and you can easily swap them out!
For PSC, enjoy the RetroCat Xtreme Themed XMB, as well as easy wallpaper swap out ability, not to mention the cool space sound effects! It is recommended that you Close Content before attempting to load another game, to keep content running seamlessly!
Speed/Performance Boost Exploit! God of War PSP Games actually work with PSC! (Mini MD-S-NESC-PSC)
The catch is, sound device must be disabled! But, I may be able to get it to work "with" sound, soon:)
Go into RetroArch Settings without content loaded. Audio, Disable Audio Device, Exit RetroArch, Re-Enter RetroArch. You will get a nominal boost in Performance and Speed, especially with troublesome games, such as God of Wars on PSC! Unfortunately, The MD-S-NESC simply do not have enough memory to appropriately handle God of War Games! But, this may change in near future Updates!
This also helps Naomi and Atomiswave Games run a great deal better, such as Dolphin Blue and Virtua NBA and so on!
I have personally enjoyed using this Exploit, and just jamming some tunes whilst playing said games with the audio device off. I have already dabbled in trying to achieve similar results with "sound device" enabled, and have gotten some promising initial test findings! So, crossing my fingers that I can bring things closer to fruition in the Next Update or few!
WIP!
I am nearly always already working on the Next Update before even posting the Current One! I am planning on adding a whole slew of additional games to the Mod Hub for MD-S-NESC minis! And, for PSC, I will add the same games to the Google Drive Link!
Also, be sure to refresh this Release Page, as I will notate additional things I am working on, or have added to Google Drive Link, and so on!
Catching up on the numerous PMs, messages, feedback, comments, etc! Thank you all for your continued Support!
Gonna do the celebration video, thanking all of you who have followed and subscribed to me on YouTube, doing a multitude of games and taking on over 4500 Enemies! I did a similar video last year, and it will be an interesting challenge attempting to do that many in succession! But, it will most certainly make for a fun video!
Da Videos!

2020.01.12 01:58 kydar1 Linux/Windows PC for video capture/editing, running VMs, and of course redditing :)

This is a repost since I did not get any build recs the first time. :(

What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
So I finally got my hands on a 3950X. :) Now I'm ready to do a build. But, it's been a few years since I've done a build and I would like some advice. For the motherboard I'd like to use something in the class of an Aorus X570 Xtreme (or possibly Aorus Master) motherboard. Overkill? Maybe. But I am expecting to use this build for a few years so I'd like it to be a little bit future proof.
My biggest question is what GPU to get. I am not much of a gamer....well, the games I play are along the lines of Space Quest and the like, nothing that would put any big demand on a modern GPU. But, I also intend to use this machine to capture and edit a lot of old video. I have a closet full of VHS, Hi8, Digital8, Video8, and mini-DV tapes. Yes, I know that "capture" isn't the correct word to use for the digital tapes. More like "transfer". But still, would this process work better with a better GPU? e.g., fewer dropped frames? And once I have the raw footage on the PC, I'll need to edit it, which (I think) will be GPU-intensive too. It is entirely possible that I will add a second GPU later to be used in an SLI configuration, but for now, I only want one.
Here is another consideration. For monitors, I use a 40" Samsung HDTV and a 40" Vizo HDTV. I also have a 55" TCL 4K TV that I might like to hook up. Right about now, true enthusiasts are gritting their teeth and are going to tell me I MUST buy a real monitor. But the thing is, I like big, really big, screens. My eyes aren't young anymore and I need big-ass fonts to be able to read comfortably. I don't care so much that the pixels aren't as sharp as a real computer monitor. They are "good enough" for me. The only thing I wish is that I could get them to turn on and off with the PC like a monitor, but alas, this doesn't seem possible.
So, does it make sense to spend a lot on a 2080Ti, for example, when it's only going to be connected to an HDTV and/or a 4KTV? Can these cards drive multiple (TV) monitors, for that matter?
Second question is memory. Faster speed, or better timings? From what I've read, speed is just a bit more important, so I was thinking of some DDR4-3600's with average timings, rather than 3200's with lower latencies. 32GB x 2, probably, leaving open the upgradability to 32GB x 4 in the future. Again, don't want to pay extra for RGB. Function over form.
Third: for the cooler, I was thinking of going with a Noctua NH-D15. The only overclocking I'm planning on doing at this time is the memory (3600 vs 3200 stock) so I don't think I need an AIO. This would be easy to upgrade in the future if I wanted to anyway.
SSD: Must be NVME/PCIE 4.0 compatible, 1-2TB, as fast as possible. I'd like 3 second bootups! :)
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
$3000 USD not including CPU (already have a Ryzen 3950X)
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
As soon as I get all the parts!
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc)
Motherboard, thermal compound, cooler, RAM, NVME SSD, GPU, case, fans (quiet ones please).
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
NJ, USA. There's a Microcenter about an hour from me but I will probably wind up buying most of the parts online from amazon, newegg, B&H, Bestbuy, etc.
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
Power supply: I have a full-modular Corsair HX1000i that I'm using on this old Windows box which will be semi-retired after the new build, so I'll just buy some cheap PS to put in here and put the Corair in the new build.
HD: 8TB WD Red shucked from an Easystore.
Optical (yes, I want an optical). LG BH16NS40 BD-R with M-disc support.
Mouse: Logitech MX Master 2S
Speakers: Logitech z523 with subwoofer.
Keyboard: generic
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
Possibly in the future, for now only some mildly overclocked RAM. Golden chips aside, it is my understanding that almost all 3950X's can handle 3600MHz RAM speeds.
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
Video capture & editing support as mentioned above. Other than that, just a good all around machine for surfing, redditing, Office apps, virtual machines (Oracle VirtualBox running Windows & MacOS guests).
What type of network connectivity do you need? (Wired and/or WiFi) If WiFi is needed and you would like to find the fastest match for your wireless router, please list any specifics.
Gigabit ethernet is fine, maybe 2.5Gbps or 10Gbps for futureproofing.
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
Don't care about RGB. Large and functional please. Should be big enough to handle the EATX motherboard easily, have excellent cable management, and maybe have room for an AIO in case I decide to water cool it in the future. A couple of front USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports would be a big plus. Maybe even an SD card reader. Can always buy this separate from the case, but hey, if it comes with it, what the heck??
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
No, will be running Linux Mint mostly, maybe dual-booting to Windows occasionally or running it in a VM when I need to use Windows-only apps.
Extra info or particulars:
Thank you so much in advance for all the help & recommendations. My first build was a first-gen Athlon on an Abit KT7A-RAID mobo almost 20 years ago. Since then I've built a handful of PCs and have usually had great luck with them, but they were always "budget." This time, I am treating myself to a rig that I hope I'll REALLY like, with few compromises. Can't wait to begin the build!!
