If you are an owner of an Odroid XU4, you are probably annoyed by the noisy fan.
In this workshop we will modify the behavior of an Odroid XU4 Fan. No Hardware Modification, only software tweaks are used.
By default, the fan is always running at full speed and is pretty noisy. There is no need for this, and can easily be silenced down without risking CPU Damage.

My Atari VCS was resting for 5+ years in the cellar when I finally got Yars’ Revenge for it. (Recommended by a fellow Retro Gamer).
To hookup the VCS to the TV, I used the builtin antenna cable. As you can guess, Image quality was horrible !
So I decided to go ahead and look for a nice and not to complicated Mod, which I found at circuit-board.de (with the help of RetroRoby Tammix pointing me […]
In this small tutorial I’ll show you how to turn your favorite Game Characters into classy Bead Designs.
First off, it’s easy to start with an 8Bit Game (i.e. NES), as these systems offer a low resolution and have a smaller color palette than 16Bit Games.
Fire up your favorite Emulator. (and have some fun while you’re at it)
Please make sure that you own the game that you’re emulating…..just saying 😉
Make sure not to use any image enhancements (filters, scaling etc..)

In this gallery we’ll see how to modify an old Atari Joystick for improved game play. The old switches tend to stop working , and had to be replaced with modern micro “click” switches.
You’ll need about 5 micro Switches (about 4mm height), something to cut and of course a soldering iron. Reichelt.de is selling them for ~ 0.2€ /piece
We need to cut some plastic from the joystick to make room for the new switches , as they use ~3mm more […]
Recently I had a spare Switch and a little time, and got inspired to pull off a 50/60Hz Mod to the Master System on the german circuit-board.
I know there’s also a switchless mod, but I didn’t have the needed parts at hand.
Also, the SystemBoard in my Master System was already (factory)-modded. Turned out I had a french RGB Model, which uses an NTSC Board which is forced to PAL 50Hz output.
It’s a very easy to do modification. Even easier than […]

Name that Game – Mega Drive
I think that we can all agree that the Raspberry Pi is a wonderful piece of Hardware. Using Retropie, I wanted to be able to play some console games from the 8/16Bit Era. (NES, Mega Drive etc..)
However, out of the box, performance of some systems (especially Nintendo Systems), was very low. Even my Dingoo A320 (which has less CPU Power) out-performs the Raspberry Pi in almost every way.
Most noticeable was the sound, which was horrible in most Nintendo Games (SNES […]
After hooking up my Neo Geo with a RGB Cable, I noticed that colors did not render properly. Image was all “yellowish”, which did not appear when connected with it’s original (composite) cable.
At first I thought that the TV is faulty, but after testing RGB with some other consoles, and even testing with another Neo Geo RGB cable, I came to conclusion that the Problem must be within […]
I bought a brand new RGB Cable from retrogamingcables.co.uk. It’s alredy the 3rd cable I order from their Store. (first 2 were for the Neo Geo and Mega Drive)
This time, it’s for my Super Famicom, and the first one with the Composite SYNC (CSYNC) Option. This CSYNC Option is only available for NTSC Models.
Needless to say, visual improvement over Composite Video is huge.
Kudos to retrogamingcables.co.uk for providing such high quality cables at a great value !

Played a lot of Retro Games on my Dingoo lately, and finished some great classics of the NES Library. Thought that I wanted to share some of my save states with you, in case you’re stuck in a Game.

At Stage 8
Several months ago, I swapped my nVidia Card for an AMD Radeon Graphics Card. At that point in time, I was able to install AMD’s latest WHQL-Driver, 13.12, without any problem.
Days and weeks passed by (and the card working fine), AMD releases a new driver. Every PC Gamer knows that 1st Rule is to keep you Graphics Driver updated.
That was when I stepped into “AMD Driver Hell”.
WIth nVidia, I was used that Updates always went smooth. I thought that AMD […]
I got myself an used USB Analog TV Grabber PCTV150e from Pinnacle :
This thingy comes with Windows only Drivers (of course, what did you expect?)
However, with a very little fine tuning, this nice little Device works great (and even better according to Image Quality) in Linux then in Windows.
This is me playing Super Mario Bros 3 on a NES hooked up to my Linux Box via the Pinnacle USB PCTV 150e, I like the quote on the title bar, it […]
