Re: Macross Conversion DYRL maybe

I was wrong - it would be for a standard (beige box with the flip up front door) NES, not a 64.

Re: Macross Conversion DYRL maybe

Converted a few Macross Famicom carts to NES

I don't know what FAMICOM is but I know what NES is. This would convert for the Nintendo 64 system I believe.

Macross Conversion DYRL maybe

I saw this on an arcade forum I'm a member on - if someone wants it, contact the guy.

The artwork looks like Macross DYRL

Re: When did Pocky become associated with anime fans?

Got me! I watched Gunbuster a bunch of times - damn near wore out the VHS tape. The first two episodes went a bit slow as they built up the plot, but then it got more engaging. You gave me a reason to go look. I'll have to figure out what Pocky looks like unwrapped, but I'm sure Google will provide ...

Re: The CompuServe Anime and Manga Forum

One more thing: CI$ wanted to change SIGs (Special Interest Groups) to Forums. Thus, they wanted to change the System Operator or SysOp handle to Forum Adminstrator. That just rolls off the tongue, right? So we responded "ForAd?" They dropped that one for the most part. I did visit CI$ hea...

Re: When did Pocky become associated with anime fans?

I hit a lot of conventions between 85 and 90. Never saw Pocky there - at least as a far as I recall. I did see a lot of dedicated fans there, sometimes translating (when subtitled products weren't available), sometimes conversing. It was all a great deal of fun. I got to to a panel session with Tore...

Re: The CompuServe Anime and Manga Forum

Think about it. Pre-broadband.

How would your wife react seeing the phone bill going from $50 to $1100?

I know how mine reacted. It wasn't pleasant.

Re: The CompuServe Anime and Manga Forum

It was similar to that, but with an international reach. As long as you could log into a local "node" you could reach CI$. What I could do: I could "Free" flag accounts (normally, the assistants) so they had free access. I could change the various forum categories / message heade...

Re: Is there a new-school equivalent of Dirty Pair?

Dirty Pair is incomparable.

Nobody has been able to get close to it as far as I can tell.

Re: The CompuServe Anime and Manga Forum

I can assure you, my wife's attention was focused on that phone bill. It was an eye opener. Keep in mind, it was before any income came in from the forum (first was SF Forum) as well, so it's kind of a big "investment" in an unknown product. After a few months, the forum grew and my percen...
