RGB Pick Up Thread Of Swag!

The Evercade versions look a lot better than Johnny Turbo’s releases, thankfully. The JT games are blurry and feature washed-out colours, while the graphics are nice and crisp on the Evercade.

The Evercade features just two scanline settings: subtle and strong (of course, they can also be turned off). I think both settings are pretty good, but I slightly prefer subtle scanlines because the screen never becomes too dark that way.

That sounds great (and horrible, at the same time, knowing myself… XD).

Do Evercade games come with any 1:1 display option, to avoid shimmering, as well as a refresh rate selector (very often these retro games/compilations just run at 60hz, resulting in costant stuttering)?

Yep, there’s a pixel perfect mode! No refresh rate selector though, as far as I know.

Here’s more in-depth information about the Evercade’s display modes:

Been a while since I posted, so here’s an update. What a wild week it’s been for pickups.

I found some intellivision games locally, in particular some imagic games, which I love the shiny art design of.

They’re in such nice shape, with inserts and manuals, that I ended up contacting the seller about his other intellivision stuff. He has a lot, and after a bit of back and forth I ended up buying his whole collection of them. Every single game is complete, and it’s in extremely good shape.

5 are sealed, plus 2 sealed C64 games, an Intellivision in very nice shape, and a voice module

Overall it’s 56 games!

I was away for a few days in Peterborough (about 70miles away from home) and after not running into a dumped CRT in so very long now and never ever finding a wild SONY Trinitron, look at what I notice on the way back from a walk in the forest:

The front casing is really badly scratched but thankfully due to the nice deep bezel the tube is free of scratches. I try to peek inside a little and seems the tubes neck is intact so decide what the heck I’m going to take this home with me.

And yup it works:

The power button is a bit dodgy and is now stuck “always on” but that should be an easy fix when I get around to cleaning it up.

Picked up a trilogy today, NG III is pretty tough to find! They’re all in very nice condition, especially I and III.
