Hey everyone, it's me, Nick. 

 

I'll be the host for this LAN and hope we can get a good turnout. This is going to be at my apartment, but I have plenty of living room space (enough for two or more cars). From how things are shaping up here are a few things you'll need to know:

 

Only one station will be available. This is unless others bring more CRTs and Box's. 

I will be providing snacks, but please feel free to bring your own. 

Parking will be weird because my apartment complex tows unless you have a guest pass. Don't worry parking is only a couple minute walk away.

 

Any attendees/potential attendees please PM me so I can give you my phone # for easy contact.

We should go to a thrift store for some CRT's just for the nostalgia factor of hauling those damn things around in our cars. Lol

 

I wish I still had my OG Xbox though. I had the Green Halo edition!

We are indeed trying to get CRTs for the setup. I believe my mom has one in her Game Room Shed. I'm also trying to find a capture card to stream one of the boxes to twitch.

 

Also, for nostalgia purposes, plenty of Dr. Peppers and Doritos? lol.

I hope this LAN has a great turnout! Also, Goodwill should have plenty of decent to good CRTs. I bought 3, one being the 100lb and two smaller CRTs from a local Goodwill all for $10.

Can someone take a picture of Pacmayne if he attends? Not sure if that's possible though, I heard the man does not exist. Whenever someone tries to take a picture of the alleged Pacmayne it turns out blurry like those pictures of bigfoot. Apparently he was on the amazing race, but I'm sure that was just government propaganda.

Actually, I'm not sure he is attending anymore. I believe he said on Facebook he couldn't make it anymore. 

 

edit, actually it was @gC ViRu2, who said he couldn't make it anymore, not @@PaCMaYNE

PacMayne will need to start playing Legacy Southpaw just to keep things fair.

What are you trying to say here bro... :intensifies:

 

Update on the LAN.  

I have gotten an el gato so we will be streaming one of the boxes. 

Also, the LAN is going to take place at my apartment instead of @@OG Nick's.

Getting pretty pumped.  Hopefully those who said they are coming show up and there is a decent turnout.

When using an El Gato to capture, I've ran into the same problem over and over. I assume you are using the older model which should work for most retro consoles. Using the S Video to Composite adapter that comes with the unit, you are apparently supposed to use the Green port for video. I've been able to get video to show up in the software and on the television but it never has color.

 

This happened at the Beach LAN too. Apparently Jeenyus had the same issue, unplugged it and plugged it back in and it worked. I have done that hundreds of times with no luck.

Hmmm. I'll have to play with it tonight. Just litterally got it so I haven't tried it yet. Hopefully I get lucky.

Which one did you get? Did you get the HD60 which is newer? Or did you get the first model? I know the first model works with retro consoles.

Naw, he didn't show.  He was coming with his pal gc Virue, who couldn't make it.  Actually, 4 or five people who said they were coming flaked.  We were lucky to have 4.  I stressed myself out pretty bad trying to get NHE running. I am going keep working on that for future LANs. All in all, it was fun as hell to play on LAN.   I need to get another better controller.   One of the controllers we used was off brand and it was atrocious to use.  Even worse than H5 aiming if you can imagine that.
