    Thank you so much Lefty!

So you can buy both controllers and swap the cords (the AsciiPad uses the same internal connector, so you can easily extend its short cord too). Also IIRC you could swap the colored buttons, I think they had the same tab layouts, you'll find markings inside SNES controllers indicating where the colored buttons should be stuck in...



    Hmm, Donald Trump for his second term?

    PAL pre HD has a higher resolution which is actually better instead of some extra lower quality frames.
    If say, an NES game was built and released by a Euro dev optimised for PAL then obviously any straight NTSC port would be terrible.
    It's just that most of those sort of games were built for NTSC and poorly ported over to PAL format, hence why they are "bad".

    Look at C64 games. There are loads of PAL games released on tape but I'm not sure all of them got NA release.
    Try to play a PAL C64 game on NTSC C64
    I believe PAL C64 has more cycles per frame. Some people mod NTSC C64 and swap in the components to turn them into PAL machines
    Wait. You're telling me there's actually a difference in those recorded cassettes? I mean, I barely know any difference between the encoding system, and that's fine - but aren't those just tapes with some data on it?

    I really owe much to C64 because it represented my first encounter with videogames, but still.

    My first encounter with video games was the NES and arcades.

    Data intended for whichever system it was created for (PAL or NTSC).

    I've read how PS1 Discs were "Pressed" some CD burning technique designed to fight against piracy. Of course each company has a different way of trying to prevent piracy.

    All discs are pressed.
    Well, except some MoD but that's mostly DVD-Video afaik.

    A lot of PS1 games you can easily make a 1:1 dump using a PC. Some games do have copy protection but for those you can dig up a patched copy somewhere.
    PS2 is pretty much the same story although I'm not aware of any serious CP (maybe there is idk). But with PS2 you're dealing with CD and DVD based games.

    Yeah I've read its not too hard to burn PS1 games using a 1:1 method.
