Re: Fellow Texans, Buc-ee's has mint tins!

Yeah too bad Bob is not longer with us, this is one of the most relaxed tv shows i have ever seen.
Nice painting an some very good life lessons along the way, "there are no mistakes, only happy little accidents" is one of Bob's best quotes.

Re: Fellow Texans, Buc-ee's has mint tins!

Man, that Bob Ross tin is great :D
I can just hear him say, "All you need (to paint) is a few tools, a little instruction, and a vision in your mind" same goes for building a mintypi ;)

Re: what our your favortie games on the mintypi

So trial and error is the name of the game! So it sounds like to a degree it's a learned skill by playing around with different ROMs, emulators, and systems to see what works best. Thanks for the help on that. That's about right, the best solution to play the games you really want is to keep your e...

Re: what our your favortie games on the mintypi

GBA runs surprisingly well on the pi0 if setup right... This is the stuff that interests me, I don't have a mintypi yet, but lots of time I see people say something along the lines of, "... if setup right... this/that runs well" How do you know how to set things up? Is this just something you learn...

Re: Dutch MintyPi tins

On special request from MintyJam, here you go

You can see its only a slight, and not problematic difference.
The extra height should making closing the tin even easier (on the v2 in a altoids tin it's a tight fit).

The size is almost identical, the custom tins are slightly (really not that much) larger.
So should be no problem housing Wermy/Helder stuff ;)

Re: Nintendo shutting down ROM sites

Question, is Nintendo doing the right thing? Question of consiense, would a gbz or mintypi be any fun without roms? ;) Dilemma :lol: Sure you need roms but there are plenty of public domain roms out there totally free. Tell me more, i have not found a royalty free rom worth playing. Edit: most roms...
