Posted in I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 28, 2020 by getbent57

In this weeks video for the YouTube Channel, I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry.  Wanted to see if four player Arcade games would run on the PlayStation Classic.  Have been trying out the Magnus RC build for the PlayStation Classic. This lets you play Arcade games as well as others.  Have a cheap four port USB hub. To test used the Classic controllers and two PS4 controllers.  Check out the video > here or below to see if or how well it works.

In this weeks video for the YouTube Channel, I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry, have a game comparison for Lethal Enforcers. Have been trying out the Magnus RC build for the PlayStation Classic. This lets you play Arcade games as well as others. Gave an old favourite a try, Lethal Enforcers. Back in the day would rent the SEGA Genesis a lot. So got thinking why not compare the different versions. You can see the video > here or below.

Posted in I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 17, 2020 by getbent57

In this weeks video for the YouTube Channel, I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry, talk about running PSP games on a PlayStation Classic. For about a year have been using AutoBleem for the PlayStation Classic. It was version 0.6. something. With 0.8. something. They add all kinds of new things. One which lets you play some PSP games. It all so supports wired PS4 controllers. In this video give it a try. While not prefect. It nice to revisit some old favourites. You can see the video > here or below.

[Update] Since making this. There has been another new update to AutoBleem, 0.9.0

PSP Game With AutoBleem And Retroboot

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 1, 2020 by getbent57

A few posts back talked about using a newer version of AutoBleem which comes with a newer version of Retroboot.  This Retroboot is pretty much RetroArch running on the PlayStation Classic.  One thing I read it can play some PSP games.  Decided to give that a go.  Run into a small problem most PSP games you need an analog stick.  There is an easy fix for that.  Just plug in a PS4 controller.  Works right out of the box. Once it’s plugged in and turn it on.  It shows a screen to configure the controller.  Then it works great.  The few PSP games run ok for the most part.  There are some audio hiccups.  But they seems to play all right.  I know it will not work with all games but it’s pretty cool it can.

In this weeks video for the YouTube Channel, I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry, give Call of Duty Warzone a try.  Not big into multiplayer games.  However this one is free and cross platform.  Did play a few around of the battle royale.  Then gave the solo mode a few tries.  This video is third time I gave that mode a go.  You can see the video > here or below.

AutoBleem And Retroboot New Version

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 24, 2020 by getbent57

It was last May (2019) that I gave AutoBleem a try.  The program runs of a USB thumb drive.  Which lets you play games off the drive.  Was happy with a how it worked so never did any of the updates that came out over the year.  There is a new version of both out now.  So thinking I might just give it a try.  Don’t want to mess of the thumb drive I have all ready setup. Have another one to try it out.  The YouTube channel Restalgia has a video on how to set it up but all so show what’s new about it.  You can see that > here or below.

Half-Life Running On A PlayStation Classic

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 16, 2019 by getbent57

People are still doing lots of great things with the PlayStation Classic.  Watched a video the other day on how to play Half-Life on it.  Of course you need to have the Classic and have Autobleem or Bleemsync so you can run RetroArch or RetroBoot.  Next you need to download some files to place on you USB drive.  The other main thing is you need a copy of Half-Life on your computer.  This is because you need to copy the game files over to your USB drive.  It sounds a bit complicated but it’s not.  That video I mentioned is a tutorial.  Which you can see > here or below.  I do own a copy of Half-Life from back in the Windows 98 SE days.  Might give this a try.

AutoBleem For The PlayStation Classic

Posted in I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 14, 2019 by getbent57

In this weeks video for the YouTube Channel, I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry, talk about AutoBleem.  The price dropped a lot on the PlayStation Classic. So it is a good time to pick one up. Another awesome reason to get one now is AutoBleem. This program runs of a USB stick. Letting you play games that are not all ready on the system. Have been using it for a few months now and it works great.  It is all so super easy to setup.  You can the the video > here or below.

ONN USB Hub

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 8, 2019 by getbent57

ONN_USB_HubA few weeks back talked about buying a USB hub so I could play two players on the PlayStation Classic and running AutoBleem.  Seen a video on YouTube of a guy trying out different ones.  One of which you could get at Best Buy what worked great with the Classic.  My plan was to buy that.  Well I was in Walmart and seen they had a cheap USB hub.  This one > here.  Decided to give it a try.  Must say it works great.  A bunch of us tired many two player games.  They all worked with out any trouble.  Even run it over a USB extension cable.  If you are in the market for one.  Well worth the $10.00.
