    What retro systems and specific games have you played recently?

    So what retro games have you been playing lately? And which hardware have you been running them on? Real or emulated.

    I got my hands on another Sharp MZ-700 recently, and I hooked it up and loaded a tape game to see if it worked. It did, but several keys on the keyboard didn't work and one cursor key for controlling the game was one of them. It probably just needs some cleaning up, but I was positively surprised that the old tape mechanism and the old tape still worked fine. The mechanism has probably never been cleaned or adjusted.

    Apart from that I haven't been good at using any of my old systems in a while. These past years I've been getting the old Nintendo and Sega consoles after getting a set of Everdrive cartridges for them. But I haven't been using them, sadly.

    I also got Everdrives for all my retro systems but really haven't used them much because it was just before I moved. It was actually a forced decision not to set them up and play them until I have the house renovations mostly finished. I'm getting there and hope to be ready to unpack and play some more in about 1-2 months. I should then just have the bathroom to replace.

    Still going through every single MAME game from time to time, wanna make a set with all the best games, thus playtesting them all. Other than that, nothing.

    I've wanted to do that with MAME but with over 4000 games is a tall order. Always possible to find a new game you've never played just by randomly picking one.

    I keep meaning to try that as I have a couple of xboxes. Quite a hassle to find and setup from what I've read though. Should still do it though when I have the time.
