Re: WTD: NTSC Compatible TV

If the NES has a composite video (yellow RCA/phono jack) output, try connecting that to an existing TV - I think many late model CRT sets were multi standard by default as it was cheaper to have a "one size fits all markets" design - the cheapo 32" CRT I bought in 2004 definitely accepted various f...

Re: WTD: NTSC Compatible TV

Yes, but composite only outputs B&W which would not work at all for tetris on the higher levels. Unfortunately Classic Tetris community is pretty clear that you need an NTSC campatible TV to be able to play properly.

WTD: NTSC Compatible TV

Hi Guys,

I have aquired a US NES for playing Tetris but need a compatible TV for it, preferably under 20".

Had a look in the usual places but no joy.

Anyone got any ideas or a set hanging around they would be happy to part with?

thanks

Lol had that problem myself a few times, I just stopped the download and waited a few hours then tried again. And again. And then it downloaded fine in about 5 mins.

Re: Elite sequel on the way

Mate, I'm not Frontier. They said items would all be shipped out in one go.

My extra concept art that I ordered has arrived but none of the official rewards. If you want to know why they are doing what they are doing probably best to take it up with them.

Really? I thought they'd go out when available.
The reason given was that it saves on shipping if everything is sent out in one go.
