Famicom Controller/3D System to SNES custom cable

  • 68
  • 1
Hey all! Several months back it was discovered that the SNES game "HyperZone" supported Stereoscopic 3D and the Famicom 3D System works on the SNES. So, I went and made an adapter for mine and it works! I fully wired the connector for Famicom controllers (both Player 1 and 2 should work) but I am unable to test this as I do not have 15 pin Famicom controllers. The 3D effect in HyperZone is very nice too but I can't capture that at the moment...

GC A look Inside an NPDP Cartridge

I took apart my NPDP cart to start dumping it. I took some photos of the pieces while I have it apart. If you look at the top half of the cart, you can see two tubes with black and white that would break and mix if you were too rough with it.

Site News GDPR Compliance and Theme Update

What's going on OG crew, a pair of site updates rolling out today.

As the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect on the 25th, the site had to make some changes to comply with the new personal data and privacy laws. All users upon reconnecting to the site will have to accept the updated ToS before being able to access OG. This will be a minor inconvenience for you lovely chaps but all in the name of security.


Site News Discord integration

  • 1
As you may have noticed if you are part of the OG Discord channel, we have been making some changes and added new features.

Seeing as very few people were using the chat and all the discussions were taking place on Discord, we decided to purchase this nice little add-on that allows communication between the site and the channels.
From now on, new threads will automatically be linked in the #site_threads room so you won't miss anything!


Site News Beta Talk and Deleted Content

Hey ObscureGamers,

As most of you know there were some recent dramas, which caused the former admin team to act fast and take down all beta content posted on-site in case of action. I feel your gripes as there were plenty of videos and other media that were very cool and interesting, but not as properly archived since they were removed from the site for site, and user safety. The current owner, @Morphicsn0w stated that if...

Demon posted another thread when I started work on RVT-H Tool, but since I have a release now, I'm making my own thread.

I've been asked by the potential upcoming owner to update you all regarding the future of OG. At this time I've been asked to stay here as a moderator while he gets to know users more.

I know some of you may have concerns about him taking over, but after personally meeting up with him last Saturday I can confirm he's a great guy. He wants nothing but the best of this community which is something that comforted me.

I'm no longer the owner...

Sonic CD Review

  • 588
  • 0

I'm quite the odd one out here. There are many people that like this game, as well as many people that hate it, too. I, being one that likes it, don't still have a few issues with the game, not to mention that I'm not a big fan of the 2011 remake or the 1996 PC port.

I've played this game through and through a few times. It's a really interesting...

Chaotix Review

Chaotix (or Knuckles' Chaotix in the west) is a very unique Sonic game, but yet, I have a reason to not like it. Why, you might wonder, knowing that I enjoy sonic myself. There are two reasons, and I'll get to those when it comes time for me to explain the gameplay.

Graphically, this game looks AMAZING. It is beautiful for a 32X game, especially since most...

Xbox360 Devkits - How to fix a dead Sidecar (Yes, really..)

  • 1,939

A much needed bump/update. 2018/04/28

Sidecars are very easy to fix, so finally in 2018 .. let's fix em.

As I've discovered nearly a year ago, it isn't voltage related at all.
- The cause of sidecar deaths is because the SDK forcefully tries to update the FPGA, which attempts to actually update the firmware but usually fails at 0x0, nulling the entire partition.

You can fix this yourself, there's no...

Crazy Taxi Review

To start this review, I'm going to mention that I am reviewing the Playstation 2 version of Crazy Taxi. I have played the arcade version and they were the same game, so don't come crying to me that I'm not playing the version on the DC. I don't own a Dreamcast, and therefore, I would not have had played the Game on the DC, but i have seen footage of it...

Tekken 5 Review

I've been one to try different games. I'd never played 1 on 1 fighting games when I first got Soulcalibur II & III, and I enjoyed them. When it came time to give Tekken a try, I saw Tekken 5 for cheap. I knew reviews were good, and the price was right, so I picked it up. I thought that finally playing Tekken 5 would be a fun experience, since I'd seen it in...
