I am brand new here but I have been reading for a while. I still play my nuon quite often. Mostly t3k and sometimes merlin racing. I would love to get a hold of iron soldier and space invaders xl but when they do appear on ebay the money gets out of control. I bought my samsung 501 brand new several years ago and my wife bought me 4 games off amazon after that, but I love the system. I am looking for some stealth controllers tho. All I have is the warrior controllers

Hi everyone,

Since there isn't a heck of a lot of activity here, I thought I'd ask this question. How many active NUON users are out there anymore? It seems like it is pretty dead. :(

That makes me wonder, is the lack of new games because of the lack of activity, or is the lack of activity because of the lack of new games? Or is the lack of activity because everyone is busy playing T3K? :D

Hi,

I always visit this page, reading the posts.

I live in Chile. I still have my 501 since 2001 and the only problem was a burn fuse. I don't use it very often but I use the RC. I own a few Samsung DVD players and the RC of those are ugly. so I kept the RC of my Nuon close to me.

Until today I didn't see any DVD player with a beautiful GUI that this one have.

If you want to start coding, I have quite a few samples I can give you.

Why don't you post them Stephen?
Ask and you shall receive. Give me a few to gather everything up. I'll try to have something posted this evening.

***EDIT***
Files are on another machine. I'll try to get them posted tomorrow. It's nothing earthshattering.

I've had an N501 for several years now, and only own an IS3 demo disks.

I've considered doing Frog Feast for the Nuon, if only for the challenge.

Holy crap, man. You just brought back a large happy memory. I used to play Frog Bog way back when. I literally haven't thought about the game in like twenty years. :)

I never even knew about Frog Feast. Bring on the port!

Hehe, you must've played it on the Intellivision. I think the Atari 2600 (and C64) versions were called Frogs and Flies.

That is a couple of hours. Cool to see some fans in the area.

I miss the thrift stores and flea markets in houston. I used to find so many games there that I didn't know what to do with them. I never find anything around here. There was even a game store in the pasadena mall that used to sell atari and intellivision, coleco games and such and sold them all to me before they closed down. I think I paid around 300.00 and got about 25 game systems and several hundred games.

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • jonas jonas:
    Is the school system in your country similar to Chinese school system? I could never imagine being a teacher in a Chinese school, what's expected of students and teachers is just so different from what I'd be looking for as a teacher
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    A Levels is based on the UK syllabus offered internationally. So the syllabus is similar throughout different countries, taught in english.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I can't speak or write or read much chinese... Too difficult....... Which also makes my life here in china a lil difficult.
  • jonas jonas:
    Oh, I see. I thought Chinese version of A-levels :D
  • jonas jonas:
    I've been using the translate app a lot on my phone. take a photo, translate. take another photo, translate again :D
  • jonas jonas:
    it also has voice translation, my colleagues sometimes use that
  • jonas jonas:
    You came during the 0 covid policy right? How'd you get through quarantine? Did you have some help with the apps and green codes?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    If you have any Chinese you need help with, let me know.

  • vypur85 vypur85:
    @jonas Those were the things I did too. Translate app and VPN are always the most important things to have to survive. Lol.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Yea I came last year. I was quarantined for about 30 days. Fml. The first day of my quarantine was the eve of Chinese new year last year. Fml again... Lol.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    @tom_mai78101 IIRC you're from Taiwan right.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I thought China had cracked down on having any foreign teachers?
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Yeah I've heard of the news before. My school is still actively hiring foreign teachers. Not sure how things work now.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah it is hard to get reliable information about that kind of stuff
  • The Helper The Helper:
    but you are doing it so it is still doable
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I think it doesn't affect existing foreign teachers. Then again, its still weird that my school is hiring.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Happy Monday people hope everyone has a fantastic week!
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Happy Monday?! That's a contradiction.

  • jonas jonas:

  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Technically, you can post in the Headline News. Just posted your news there.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:

  • jonas jonas:
