    I will probably get a Neo SD (possibly Pro) when (if?) they come down a bit in price.

    Excellent. Looks great! I debated doing this a couple of years back and ended up buying a custom built supergun so I could use it on more systems than just the MVS (I've got an MV-1)... But it's definitely a space hog. I sometimes wish I went for a consolized system just to make it more convenient to play. Most of the time I opt for emulation because I don't feel like setting the beast up. 🙂 Great choice of game too... If you are just getting into MVS collecting it pays to check your cartridges out against the MSV Scans site just to make sure you're not paying good money for bootlegs. The Neo Geo scene is a mine field when it comes to fake cartridges,

    I recently got a consolized MVS (and bought my first MVS game as you can see). Great system!

    Just a test recording of me playing the Playstation 2 game Motor Storm Arctic Edge (PAL) on the PCSX2 emulator on a PC with a Ryzen 7 2700x 2nd generation Ryzen CPU, with 16Gb memory running at 2933Mhz, a GTX 1070 GPU, Xbox 360 Gamepad, 1080p display, using OBS to record the screen. The PCSX2 emulator is using software mode (most complete and compatible, glitch free) dedicating 4 threads to graphics. It runs 100% all the time! Captured this at 60fps and this PAL game runs at 50fps, so ideally should have captured at 50fps. But this shows how smooth PS2 emulation is on the new Ryzen2 platform. Of course the fact that it is a multithreaded app makes it perfect for this platform. I had to replace the audio with a stock track from YouTube's audio library to avoid copyright infringements. This video is a demonstration of the capabilities of the new platform.

    Emulation has been with us ever since the 80s. The Amiga was capable of running C64 software to some extend. The C64 had a basic ZX Spectrum Emulator. But for a long time these emulators just weren't up to the task of perhaps replacing the real deal, or providing us with an experience that some have a hard time distinguishing from the genuine article. Let's see how we fare when trying out various emulated systems on a PC... Originally this was a stream with Integrated chat Using multiple scenes YetiBlue USB Microphone Logitech Webcam WIndows 10 PC Streaming and capturing the images of a second emulation PC with the Avermedia Live Gamer Portable from within Open Broadcaster Software Emulation PC: i5 Haswell 3.5Ghz 4 cores 12 Gb RAM 256 Gb SSD 4x 2TB HDD 950GTX GPU Nvidia Logitech Rumblepad 2 Software: Launchbox 4DO - for 3DO emulation 1964_11 - for N64 emulation Atari800 - for Atari 8bit emulation Kat5200 - fot Atari 5200 emulation Demul - for Dreamcast and Naomi emulation Dolphinx86 5.x - for Gamecube and Wii emulation ePSXe - for PSX emulation FS-UAE - for Amiga / CD32 emulation FCeux - for Nintendo emulation Fusion364 - for Sega emulation Hatari - for Atari ST emulation Mame 0.149 - for Arcade emulation Mess 0.151 - for Multiple system emulation Mupen64_0.51 - for N64 emulation Mupen64+++ Beta - for N64 emulation Nebula Nemu Nestopia - for Nintendo emulation NullDC - for Dreamcast emulation PCSX2 - for Playstation 2 emulation PCSX - for Playstation emulation Project 64 / Project 64 1.6 / Project 64 1.7 / Project 64 2.1 - for N64 emulation PPSSPPBlue / PPSSPPGold - for Sony PSP emulation Retroarch - for multiple system emulation SainT - for Atari ST emulation Snes9x-1.52/1.53/1.55 - for Snes emulation Specteculator - for Spectrum emulation UltraHLE VisualboyAdvance - Gameboy Advance emulation WinVice - 3.1x64 - for Commodore 8bit emulation

    Excellent. Those frame rates are looking great. I Held off on building out my B350 Ryzen system last year.. but it looks like the Ryzen 2700x is compatible with my board at stock speeds. Maybe I'll pick one of those up when I get back on track. but if I do it will probably be a computer room machine. I'm still working on building the old 4th gen i5 system out as an emulation box for the game room. Not great on PS2, Gamecube or Wii.. but fine for everything else.

    Hi my name is Mark aka Lactobacillus Prime and I have been a videogamer ever since the early 70s. I reside in the Netherlands (Europe). Of course among the first videogames I played was Pong but also quite a few others types. I found myself drawn to these early games as new gameplay mechanics were being developed and experimented with and new genres were being born just about every day. I found the Shmup/STG/shooter genre one that just 'clicked' with me. I actually never stopped playing video games and I am still very keen on the Shmup genre. I hope to be a regular on this site. I have my own youTube channel you can check out here: https://www.youtube.com/lactobacillusprime

    I managed to get a PS3 Emulator called RPCS3 running on my PC. It's fairly easy to set up and I discovered 5 of my games would actually work with this emulator. The emulator uses the regular update file intended for the PS3 and you need to install that inside of the emulator. Then, if you have a compatible bluray drive it is possible to dump the games, decrypt them and copy them inside the file structure of the emulator, much like the WiiU emulator does. It's far from perfect and certainly not full speed when grabbing the game footage with OBS at the same time. But I figured I'd share this amazing fact with you guys. It's fascinating to see software intended for a vastly different architecture just do its thing on the PC.

    For anyone who is into Commodore 64 shmups- If you missed out on the Kickstarter for Galencia 2, they are running a limited campaign over on Indiegogo where you can reserve your copy of the backers edition of the game. Comes with extra modes, big box, cartridge, posters and a model of the ship. Limited time.. so if you want to get in on it, act fast. Indiegogo Link.

    Dodonpachi I am always enjoying shooters like Donpachi, Dodonpachi, sadly not on original hardware but on PlayStation original or Saturn, Mame.. Wouldn’t mind one of those Astrocity vertical arcade cabs with this in it one day.

    Tried Blue Revolver just now; Im not fully sure how to feel about this game yet, but the scoring system is pretty cool

    I've been playing that a bit too. Always have trouble finding all the targets on the level. Nice game though.. love Uridium.

    Oh I wish I could say arcade boards, but for me it’s mostly emulation or ports / classic gaming collections on the various consoles.

    I have been playing that new Uridium clone/follow up: Hyper Sentinel - it’s quite different.

    My main shmup systems are: Nintendo Switch, the new king of shmup consoles. If they'd just release more physical games... PC Engine with SSDS3. Play anything, ANYTHING with the SSDS3. Japanese Xbox 360 for Cave shooters.

    I'm building a PC Engine collection, I picked these up during the weekend. I love the Obey machine. So many fun shewties!

    Excellent work! The PC Engine is a great machine for shooters. I haven't picked anything up for it recently. I think my last grabs were Super Star Soldier and Soldier Blade. It takes deep pockets to grow that particular collection. 💲💲💲

    I just wanted to drop a quick update on the state of the site but first a bit of history. I'm not sure how many of you may remember this site from back in the day. The original site was launched in 2005 and ran until around 2011 when the hosting provider I used suffered a major hack. Many sites were affected and mine was one of them. I didn't have a complete backup of the database and the Content Management System I was using at the time had changed hands and development and support became rather unstable... so I made the decision to not relaunch the site. This never really sat well with me, but I just didn't have the time to rebuild everything at that point. At that time Shmups Forum was having issues, Malc was hard to get a hold of and the forum needed some administration done to it.. also, shmup-dev was going through a similar changing of hosts (and owners) at that time due to time constraints (if I remember correctly). Postman's "Shoot the Core" had changed hosts, got upgraded then something happened to it and it went offline. It was just upsetting that so many STG sites had stability issues around the same time... luckily things worked out fine for both shmups.com and shmup-dev.com. So here we are: Since I currently find myself with an abundance of forced free-time on my hands.. I figured I'd try and start getting the bones in place to build the site back up. To that end, I decided to just scrap the CMS and go straight for a forum that had a decent amount of functionality built into it. Invision has Forums, Galleries, Files and Blogs.. and since I already had a dormant license, I chose to go with that. I've begun adding images and files to the site. It's time consuming but I'll try to get it populated as fast as possible. The main issue I'm having at this point is with the uploads. Uploads to the site are very touchy.. sometimes they works fine and you can upload a couple hundred megs no problem, sometimes uploading a 200k JPEG fails, sometimes it uploads but it's corrupted, I'm working on finding a solution to problem. It's happening on all of my sites and on many different software packages. Switching out PHP versions, tweaking security settings.. nothing seems to work. I think it's probably a server issue, so that may take some time (and emails) to sort out. But if you want to send something up you can.. you just might need to try the upload 4 or 5 times.. Hopefully it gets sorted out soon. I'll post more here as things get sorted out.
