How To Record or Stream Nintendo Gameboy, Gamecube, N64 & SNES Games on an Elgato HD60 Capture Card

Before we get started, here’s a little background to why I created this guide and why you’re probably here in the first place. Recording any retro console isn’t as simple as plugging your Nintendo Gamecube or N64 into your capture card like modern consoles; first off, the Elgato HD60 Capture Card only has HDMI inputs which presents a massive problem. So is it still possible to Record or Stream Nintendo Gameboy, Gamecube, N64 & SNES Games on an Elgato HD60 Capture Card?

Splatoon Weapon Tips & Tricks: How to use the Carbon Roller Deco.

carbon-roller-deco-tips-1

The Carbon Roller Deco is still the same old Carbon Roller you know and love. It’s got the ability to splat enemies at lightning speed before they even know what’s hit them… but without the burst bombs and Inkzooka. Instead you’re picking up the seeker as a sub and a seeker bomb rush as your special. But is it an improvement or a downgrade?


Firstly, things can get pretty hairy when you’re relying on seekers and using a roller. Given such a short splash range with the Carbon Roller Deco, it’s tempting to stick around when you may have otherwise run, instead opting to bridge the gap by firing a seeker at your foe. But betting with your life that said seeker will ever reach it’s target (or even bother to lock-on for that matter) is not a particularly wise move.

How To Fix Guitar Hero Live Controller Problem on PS4 | UPDATED: 13/11/15

Having problems with your Guitar Hero Live detecting your guitar controller on Playstation 4? You’re not the only one. After opening my prized axe, I was disappointed to find that my PS4 seemingly wouldn’t detect it.

guitar-hero-live-controller-problemHere’s how to sync your guitar controller in the first place, if you’ve done it already, then you can skip this part until method one and two:

Make sure you’ve got the Bluetooth USB dongle inserted into one of the ports on your Playstation 4. Press the ‘on’ button on the controller so that the guitar LEDs flash slowly. Press it once again so that they flash quickly. Then press the small blue button on the USB dongle. You’ll know it worked because the guitar will stop flashing and just show one solid red LED.

If you’ve done all that and it still doesn’t detect the guitar controller in game, try pressing the ‘on’ button again. It should take you to the user selection screen on the Playstation 4 menu. This is just a simple test which means that your controller is correctly synced and the next two steps will most definitely resolve
