HEY KIDS!  If you have been following the front page, you know that it's time again for the RF Generation Fund Drive.  Some of you have already made some generous donations, but we still have a ways to do to reach our $1500 goal.  If you are able, please consider contributing to our site. Whether it's a large amount, or a few bucks, all donations are equally appreciated.  Money collected during the fund drive goes to server costs and allows us to pay for prizes for our annual Pain Yourself With Submissions Contest.  Surplus amounts are held for future server costs and potential site improvements.  Your donations also help to keep our site ad free, so that you are able to surf our pages freely without constant pop-ups and interruptions. Help us keep RF Generation a free site for years to come as was the wish of our founder, the late Michael Collins.

This year, we are once again instituting a prize raffle for those who donate. For every $10 donated, that donor will receive a ticket for the raffle (i.e. if you donate $40, you will receive 4 entries). At the end of the donation drive, names will be randomly drawn from the entries (drawing to be videoed) and winners will be allowed to select the lot of their choosing based on draw order. For instance, the first name drawn will select their lot first, the second name drawn will select their lot second, and so on; the last name drawn will receive the final, remaining lot. Participants will only be allowed to win one (1) lot, so if your name is drawn more than once, you will retain your highest selection position and another name will be selected.  Winners should expect to pay the cost of shipping for their items unless the donor offers to ship for free.

Please stay tuned to the front page for Donation Drive updates and a list of prize lots (the 1st update is coming February 13th). Donations will be applied to the prize raffle until February 29th, but of course, you can donate any time of the year.  Once the prize lots are announced, I will include them in this initial post.

You can donate HERE.  Afterwards, please send a PM to singlebanana to let him know the email address you used to donate so that he can track it for the raffle and thank you on the front page.  Amounts of donations will not be disclosed.

Thank you for your support,

singlebanana, bickman2k, & Duke.Togo

I think that whoever gets that lot will have some cool pieces for their gameroom. It's probably the lot I would pick even though o e of the pieces is mine. 🤣

Good afternoon all,

The past few weeks have been total chaos for me as I know it has been for most of you.  I will be doing the drawing in a few minutes and recording it, so I hope to have the video up here this evening or tomorrow. Best of luck to you all!

Alright, here are the results. Congratualtions to all of our winners this year and a special thanks to EVERYONE who donated!  I will be reaching out to all the winners soon to choose their prizes.

**Sorry, I had to do two video. My phone cut off in the first one, which you will see. I didn't think it was fair to the names drawn to put all of the names back in and record one, solid video.

There are some great Fami games in there.  If you need any recommendations, or cheap games from my local store, let me know.  Also, senseiman on here is great to deal with and has incredible deals.

Hey now,

I've called dibs on Lot #7, AKA the Famicom lot.


BTW not that anyone cares, but these will be the very first Famicom games in my collection.

There are some great Fami games in there.  If you need any recommendations, or cheap games from my local store, let me know.  Also, senseiman on here is great to deal with and has incredible deals.


I recall seeing some YouTube profiles of Hatris and Atlantis no Nazo some years ago. And I certainly remember when the infamous Takeshi no Chōsenjō was showcased on the very first episode of GameCenter CX:






Thing is, I recall there being a karaoke level in the game where you have to sing into the mic built into the Famicom controller to be able to advance... maybe. Does anybody know if there's a Honey Bee controller adapter dealie than can help me accomplish this task?
