Thinking of doing a stream series soon. The theme: Retro games I never beat as a kid and want to try again. Thoughts?

Hey all, I'm going to be doing a stream of some Perception gameplay in the next few days if anyone would be interested in watching. Details coming soon.

Do-It-Yourself Projects

Here you can learn about projects that we here at Nerd Bacon have undertaken when it comes to taking matters into our own hands.  Maybe you want to learn how to change a battery, construct an A/V cable, or just burn some games.  This is the place where we provide you with detailed instructions on how do these activities yourself.  You can also browse our most recent DIY projects or view a complete list of all projects.

Note:  Nerd Bacon and its individual members, writers, and contributors absolve themselves from any responsibility for personal injury or destruction of property that may result from attempting any of these projects.  Please be aware of what you are doing and take appropriate safety precautions when dealing with electrical equipment, soldering irons, power tools, and anything else with the potential to pose a safety hazard.


Burning Games

Blank CD-RsThe following articles describe various aspects of burning your own games for older consoles where the software may be difficult or impossible to find in acceptable condition and unavailable through conventional retail outlets.  Please support current software developers and buy their stuff so that they can continue to bring us what we love.

 


Constructing Cables and Adapters

These projects explore how to make AV cables and adapters that aren’t widely available for certain consoles.  For example, some earlier consoles were packaged with RF adapters despite possessing the capacity for component output.  Constructing cables or adapters for these consoles ensures better picture quality and increased compatibility with other electronics.

 


Emulation

Emulation involves the use of special software that mimics the function of older consoles. It’s a cost-effective and space-saving way of enjoying older games since no original hardware is required. Emulation offers some additional advantages over console gaming, including the ability to save a game at any point.

 


Software Manipulation

On many newer systems it is possible to access and modify the existing system software. This can be particularly useful for exploring homebrew titles and in some cases can expand the functionality of the device letting the user access options never intended for the general public. Beware, unless you know exactly what you’re doing or are getting your information from a trusted source, these procedures can be risky. In the most severe cases it is possible to render the unit entirely useless.

 


Building and Modifying Computers

The PC experts at Nerd Bacon share their expertise when it comes to customizing your computer!

 


Transferring Hardware and/or Software

Ever wanted to move data from one console to another?  Or how about swapping parts and building one functional unit out of several smaller ones?  Here we cover projects involving such transfers, especially when the method may be a little unorthodox or outside the realm of what manufacturers make publicly available.

 


Miscellaneous

Any additional DIY projects not specifically covered by any one particular description.
