Xbox Live Arcade

Post by theevilfunkster »

This week, R-Type Dimensions :awe:

Price - 1200 MS Points (Booo :evil: )

R-Type Dimensions is the first game and R-type II packaged together (like R-Types on the PSone), online Co-op multiplayer, updated graphics with some weird screen tilting :? (you can still use the old sprites if you want though)

How much is 1200 points these days???

I may consider flogging the PS1 re-release version if this turns out to be worth the outlay...which I expect it will :)

Well I just got an R-TYPE pcb on saturday for £30, but annoyingly it died between playing it at the arcade ops warehouse and my house. I got it working for about 5 mins, but trhe sound was hooky, now it's garbled graphics. Grrr. Same with two other PCBS I bought actually, so god knows what happened. I bought 8 in total anbd most are fine.

Anyway, glad this has come out, I think I have some MS points to use up anyway, and I can try out the new arcade stick I made. :)

Arcade Stick??? Pray tell :)

Was it difficult??
I'm considering moding my Hori EX2 soon but not sure where to start & I'm not very technically minded so think it may be beyond my means but would be nice to know if it isnt ;) lol

Tip for XBL, always round UP. It's $15 here in the states.

Sanwa JLF plus sanwa buttons, set in plexi glass in a scratch built MDF case, wired to a 15 strand cable attached to a known pin out on a 15 pin dsub.

Then I have a hacked joytech 360 pad in a seperate project box with a dsub socket.

This setup is ideal as I can just do a new project box for each pad/system I hack, so can always use the same stick. :)

No technically finished as I need to spray the stick case (radiator white), need better cp art as mine is ****-poor and I haven't finished hacking the pad yet (halfway through). I'll post pictures later. :)

Modding an EX2 with sanwa buttons etc is a piece off **** (even for me, and I'm clumsy as ****) - I did my brothers one at xmas.

1200 - £10.20

This is becoming a trend with XBLA games, 1200 is the new 800 :x

That sounds awesome, will look forward to some pics when all is done.

Ta for the link as well, I'd actually seen that page earlier when I was looking, some great info there but I'm afraid even that will probably beyond my means :(
I really do suck at anything complicated :( lol

Thanks Funkster for the price info too...£10.20 is a **** load of money, might as well stick with my PS1 version then I think.

You could ask DJ Johnny G if he''s able to mod it for you as I think he does this kind of stuff.

I bought points just for this and the new Outrun.

There are a few worthy additions to the XBLA roster.

If you like shooters Omega Five by Hudson is worthy of your dosh/points :)

Thats only if you're buying the points cards at close to £18 though. You could get 2100 points for £12 recently and from that 1200 point games are £6.80 :awe:

And where can I get these cheap cards then?

Oh, R-Type Dimensions is really quite fantastic by the way. You can change between the new and old graphics mid game with the Y button, though the new stuff looks great as it is. All sorts of neat graphics filters and tons of options, very good indeed :awe:

There’s also a boy that sells live subscriptions, 13months for £25.

I’ll dig out the web address when I get home, or someone without a net nanny :( can nip over to AV Forums & get the web address from there?

This guy was selling them for £25 but the price has gone up a lot recently. Anyone know anywhere cheaper? I'll need to renew mine soon.

Also, anyone know the cheapest place for points?

Had a few codes from Jasper in the past all codes delivered by email within a few hours. As for points I normally stock up on the from Zavvi and Tesco Jersey, they normally have them at some point in the year for around £13 for 2100. Shame Zavvi are going down the pan as they normally had the deal on every few months.
