Frustration ends, snow season begins…

Finally, after a strange mixture of frustration, rage and melancholy  I got the damn Sega Master System 2 tuned into the TV!. Turns out that cracking the shits, grabbing a screwdriver and lifting the lid on the rather ugly SMS2 can actually yield results, as I could plainly see that the RF cable was just not making proper contact with the RF out on the console.

A big of jiggling (a professional retro collector term) and we have a picture! Now admittedly the quality of the picture is a none-to-pleasing mix of shit and snowstorm, but it’s a start. I’m now going to try passing the RF through the VCR then composite to the TV. Wish me luck!

For anyone interested, here are some of the titles I intend to try out once I get a clearer picture, 

  • Road Rash II
  • Pacmania
  • Bomber Raid
  • Double Dragon
  • Ghost House
  • James Pond 2: Robocod
  • F16 Fighter
  • Shadow Of The Beast
  • Ninja Gaiden

And many, many more!
