Re: WELL THIS IS INTERESTING.. Retron 5

Heard about the adapter recently, nice for someone who has the games or wants to get into them without dealing with the original hardware and just the carts. This may have if they did it when they said something over a year ago made me keep my GG and carts, but a good many of them are gone. I could still, but over just Wonderboy 3 and a few others I don't think it would be cheap enough to warrant it.

And on that game, since unlike on the SMS the GG annoyingly only saves with a password, that adapter would be a nice upgrade.

Speaking of GG adapters/converters,

I wonder if the RetroFreak GG adapter would work on the R5? hmm....lol
When I get a chance I'll test it and see.

I don't think slots can be fixed on it. I've seen the thing opened up before and it would not be worth the time or expense of it.

Not with that attitude.

Why could the slots not be desoldered and then replaced?
