Now that Tatsujin has bailed on us for people who arenít already bored of his collection is there anyone here who doesnít think Turican sucks? Frenchman, Germans, etc?

Depends which turrican games. There's a clear divide between the Amiga games and the console games

Mega Turrican is a phenomenal classic, although the Alien stage drags on a bit too long

Super Turrican 2 looks great but sounds and plays bleh

I will concede that Mega Turrican is kind of OK, but when you could just play Contra Hard Corps, I can't see a great reason to dive at Super Turrican.

Now that Tatsujin has bailed on us for people who arenít already bored of his collection is there anyone here who doesnít think Turican sucks? Frenchman, Germans, etc?

I legit loled at this.  Probably the  most accurate shit said on this forum in the past 2 years.

So I was legit going to order one of these things, because:

-i admit to being a video snob in my old age, and i have an og, non 1 chip SNES that makes my eyes bleed with its blurry RGB in comparison to the PCE, Genesis and NES. Considering people are charging over $100 for a 1 chip SNES nowadays, this seems like a good alternative for better video
-i can plug it into any modern tv with no fuzz, so i can bother the wife playing Mega Man X 2 and its horrible music in our bed room tv
-i've been curious about these FPGA consoles, so this seems like a good entry point to see how well these work in comparison to the real thing

But then I went to check out and they are charging me $30 for ground shipping?!? So its not really a less than $200 clone console after all, given Analogue is adding 15% for shipping charges.

This is just as bad as "just pay extra processing and shipping" for my free Snuggie. So the question is, is it worth $220?

The Super NT appears to be much smaller than a real SNES, so yeah shouldn't cost more than a few bucks to ship. Welcome to Analogue!

What does the asterisk regarding compatibility mean?

They tried to make me do a recap
I said no, no, no

It means it was taking performance enhancing drugs.

"Vertical position stretch" does come in handy when playing squished PAL games. On some of them like Super Metroid, the wrong aspect ratio is really obvious when comparing the size of the vertical and horizontal domed doors.

My old Grundig CRT TV had a hidden service menu where I could adjust the geometry on-the-fly for every source signal whenever I wanted, just as with a PC CRT monitor. My Samsung CRT had a rather bad menu that was only available at startup time and also only shew the preview on RF sources.

I've seen external circuits that are able to shift the geometry horizontally, but unfortunately I haven't seen one that also does stretch: https://playoffline.wordpress.com/cable/rgbshifter/

Just a couple of things. 

1. I've had my Super NT since launch and I have to say it more than lives up to the hype.  The implementation of the SNES via FPGA is highly accurate and all the extra features really make this my go to system for playing SNES games.  First Analogue system I bought. 

2. I speak to Kevtris a decent amount on a Discord chat and I can say with confidence he is a good guy who just wants to make neat toys for people in the retro community. He's one of the most humble guys I've ever talked to considering his talents. The amount of work he puts into these products is insane. He rarely gets free time to do other things now. I just hope people appreciate what he has contributed to the retro gaming community.
