Hello everyone

Postby Bakkies » Thu Nov 23, 2017 3:00 pm

Hi my name is André, I'm 33 and I live on a farm in South Africa. I started gaming on a famiclone and a 286 PC, later progressed to a PS1 and most consoles afterwards. Acquiring some consoles and games were difficult, usually bargaining with friends, family and locals. Especially difficult when on a very tight budget. Usually it results in browsing pawn shops and hopefully the pawn shop owner isn't entirely sure what the item is actually worth.

Since many consoles aren't available here, I feel really blessed to be able to emulate many of them and experience games I never played before. That's why I really love TiZ. It's like a flee market where you can experience new sights and sounds that you're unfamiliar with, but also those you grew up with. I pretty much like all old consoles, but I recently started exploring the Saturn, Dreamcast and 3DO. It's very fascinating.

Otherwise I really like 3D modeling and CG stuff. Also nature, animals and architecture. But before this sounds like a dating profile (too late?) I just want to say hi to everyone.

Install - Run - Goto Options > File Associations click " + " all open with 7-zip
Untick ISO. Click Ok and close 7-zip

*.001 files - Double click on one and Windows will ask you which program to use with the file type.
Select 7zFM.EXE (C:\Program Files\7-zip\7zFM.exe)
From this point onwards, 7zip will open all 001 files for extraction

- Absolutely NO linking to outside cloud storage sites such as RAPID/MEGA etc... on pages !
Doing so will get you kicked for a minimum of 7days.

- Video Uploads - Don't cover your vids with AD's. They WILL be removed without warning.

- Don't SPAM in the game comment box's. Got a problem, ask in the relevant forum for the system type.

- Don't SPAM the forums with complete rubbish as these WILL be Deleted and user will get a ban depending on how bad it was.

- THIS INCLUDES : THE "5 POSTS REQUIRED" RULE! - Say Hi, say hi to new users, you get through 5 posts easy.
This is to stop spammers uploading crap all over the board as it FORCES interaction - Getting pissed about it don't help !

- Play nice, however remember this forum is run by ADULTS and it aimed at ADULTS.
Taking offense is not worth it, and if this is too much then you really need to step away... There be Trolls in these parts !

- Posts in wrong areas WILL be removed without warning

- If in doubt, contact a MOD or a Editor (The GREEN/Pink Names]

Original Uploader as they are the only ones who can REMOVE or CORRECT the password.

I feel like some people would rather "socially network" and potentially get the wrong answer slowly, rather than just use google and get the right answer immediately.
