so with respect: i'm not trying to own a fami or even a twin at this point, i'm keeping what i have but down the road when i've $ again? i'n not against modding it for whatever audio channel it's missing, and an FDS plugin. however off-color.
I didn't say get rid of the NES! I'm encouraging multiple console hoarding gluttony ;)
That's what I'm gonna do anyway. I've loved the NES for decades, but over the past few years, I've come to love Famicom too. They're almost like different systems culturally, even if internally they are the same. They're both sitting side by side on my shelf, and it's just a matter of time before I RGB mod both.
So if you're a reasonable gamer instead of a crazy like me..... the mod to get Famicom sound on NES is really simple. You can use your Everdrive N8 to play it back too.
FDS stick is awesome too (Everdrive has crap emulation of FDS sound). You just need an FDS Ram Adapter... you don't even need the red disk drive itself. I actually found a standalone ram adapter in a store here in Vancouver recently, paired it with an FDS stick.... It's great. Metroid has save data yo.
