You know, after all this time, what game is it that keeps me setting up a Nuon?
Tempest 3K? Too much in the gameplay going on for me.
Iron Soldier 3? A great game, but a bit buggy.

Ballistic and Space Invaders? Those are actually good, but not as good as...

Merlin Racing! For some reason no racing game has caught me on any Atari system like Merlin Racing. While there are probably many greats out there for racing games (Mario Karts on the Wii was a lot of fun, and networkable!) Merlin Racing is the one game that over time remains a blast for me. Nothing like the thrill and feel of the race, and the joy of sending a guided missile at your opponent! :p

I recently set up my game systems after getting back home after a year, and the Nuon is setup again.. mainly just to play the occational game of Merlin Racing.

One thing I have to say about the Nuon... it might have only had about five or six games, but they were all pretty good to great in my book.
 
Mine is set-up for T3k but i understand where you're coming from. I still haven't played Merling Racing (yet) in 2-P mode as i didn't want to tear open my second Warrior controller. I did just recently get two CIB Logitech controller, one of which i opened. So... at the next retro event i will sample all the 2-P games that the NUON has to offer ^^
 
It's VLM2, T3K, and the homebrews (in that order) that make me keep my N501 connected.
 
More and more i am starting to prefer T3K over my long term love affair with T2K on the Jag...
 
They released Merlin Racing on Playstation but it was so deep that they released it in 3 separate games. One for each type of racer I believe.
 
I thought it was three, but they (Miracle Designs) seem to have released four PS1 racing games based on it: XS Airboat Racing, ATV Racers, Miracle Space Race, and Rascal Racers.
 
Haha, i have the Hooters Road Trip game on PS1 :D Got it last year (CIB for a couple of bucks) but haven't played it yet ^^

    https://www.thehelper.net/pages/news/ is a link to the old news portal - i will integrate it into the interface somewhere when i figure it out
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Need to try something
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hopefully this won't cause problems.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hmm
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example: https://www.rpnation.com/news/

    I will have to get used to this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...
