Turns out Final Fantasy 2 & 3 never had NES release.  FF3 is unplayable but FF2 appears to be a decent fan translation.


Yea, Here are links to FF2&3 fan translations patches.

I'm thinking of lugging out a smaller crt and getting that multicart with all the lightgun games on it.  Does anyone have any info on that one?

Never heard of this I would love to try one. I have a nes and crt already set up in my garage just haven't been able to get myself to invest in an everdrive when really all I want it for is light gun games. Any info or links for a cheap light gun games multi cart would be great.

I am looking to expand my NES library beyond the handful of games I have at home. Is there any advantage these multicarts hold over an EverDrive besides price?

Nah, I can't think of any advantages.  They're idiot proof and the menus look better than Everdrive.

Howard - tell us more of these multicarts for light guns.

I haven't ordered one yet, but there was one on the site that shall not be named that contained every NES lightgun game.  It wasn't particularly expensive either.  I think there are actually a few on that multicart I got ages ago, but I haven't had my NES hooked up in several months so I would have to check.

I just checked... the red 150-in-1 carts like I have contain Wild Gunmen, Hogan's Alley, Duck Hunt, and Bayou Billy (has lightgun stages).  So that's 1/4 of the games right there.  The only remaining good ones are Barker Bill and Gumshoe imho. 

I checked aliexpress and they aren't carrying the multicart anymore.... or at least I couldn't find it with their crappy search function.  At one point they had a snes 6 in 1 with a bunch of bazooka.... er lightgun games on it, but I don't see that one either.  I guess I should have bought them when I had the chance.

Gotta move quick.  I think they make exactly one batch of these PCBs before moving onto the next version.

I remember kinda liking Gotcha! back in the day.  NES was fairly lousy for gun games, to be honest.

Yeah Gotcha! was pretty decent. 

Well I'm trying to find a good lightgun solution.  I need to talk to headkaze about expanding his vjoy program and then I can finish my mayflash bar program. 

I've also been thinking of using that "broken" wii I picked up as a dedicated lightgun box.  Throw all the emulators on there and just add the lightgun games to the main menu.  The wii itself has plenty of lightgun games as well, including several arcade ports.  I think there is a version of mame as well. 

I still prefer real lightguns, it just crts are such a pain in the butt... especially the bigger ones that would make gun games really fun.

Wii had a nice version of Big Buck Hunter.  That game is forgiving enough to allow magic wand controls.

this made me smile. But just wanted to share it because there seems to be a battery inside. Working saves?

It's probably for Kirby.  All the ones out this year have a battery save... just for Kirby.

There's a new one out called the Forever Games 405 in 1.  It has a very exhaustive library and includes Mike Tyson's Punchout.  Not that any of us need this... but I'm waiting for the price to drop down from $25.

New hotness is "Forever Duo Games" which combines the 405 in 1 with a 447 in 1.  I guess you toggle between lists with the select button.  Looking over the game list, it looks comprehensive.

One of you crack open your wallet and spend $25.

I just bought two of the 143-1  you pointed out a while back for $9 each shipped. I'm fixing (pins, Retro bright, cutting lockout leg, & maybe recaping just for practice and to say it was done) some NES for I got my hand on. I'm doing the rehab for fun but will be trying to resell for a profit. Not counting the time spent on it, that's going into the leggier as fun and enjoyment.

Anyone have any experience with SNES multicarts?  It looks like the "good ones" are the 101 in 1 and the 68 in 1.  There's a slightly better version that's PAL only and a 70 in 1.  Have decent menus with alphabetical lists of games.  Both about ~$20 shipped.

No but I read that Pal games won’t play on NTSC console.

I got a knock off ever drive from China for $44. It works well.

I'm with locke on this one.... just get a super everdrive china version.  Mine's been going strong for a while now and they are pretty cheap.

This isn't for me.  I need something with an attractive menu in alphabetical order that's super simple to use.  No walls of text or weird loading screens.  No inability to save on games that should support save. 

This is going to a dude that's been rocking NES/SNES daily since release - he's burned out 1 toaster, given me his top loader, run through a couple of SNES, and was the source of that Retro Duo that magically still worked occasionally despite ~8 broken wires.  I've got a RetroN 2 coming in for him and I'm genuinely curious how long it will make it.  It adds an SNES eject button so I'm reasonably hopeful - I'm going to preemptively crack it open and bulk up the PCB support, though. 

I already tried emulation with this guy via original Xbox.  I did everything I could to strip it down.  Nice large font, custom themes.  Total dud.  He wants cartridges.   :lol

I went ahead ordered a "Super 101 in 1".  It's mostly the same list at the 68 in 1, but drops Donkey Kong Country 1-3 and Breath of Fire 2 and adds a bunch of other stuff. 


I did find an Everdrive knock off called "Super China Version" that's ~$34 shipped.  Maybe that's the one for me.
