*Video contains flickering/flashing lights* I think this is probably thread worthy just for the memes. So this guy ran an experiment a while ago trying to run a NES on batteries, and as the batteries started to die, the game became glitched and produced some unexpected errors and bugs. Well he's done the experiment again, this time with a Genesis and some AA batteries. Sonic 1 is the chosen game and things get wild when the voltage starts to get lower and lower. It starts with the colours, first of all, everything that's coloured white starts to transition to a rainbow like effect. My guess is that this is partially an optical effect as the game tries to output the correct colour but doesn't quite get there? Eventually things become very 'yellow'. The game continues for around an hour with this continued yellowing until it crashes.... Then... The fun REALLY begins! The screen flickers, the music goes wierd... eventually it crashes and actually outputs an error message to the screen! It gets even stranger, as the batteries get lower and hotter, the music and the colours go insane until the game totally crashes. Then for another experiment, he runs Sonic 3D blast and tried to play, sure enough the game crashes... But also brings up the secret crash level select! it's a really interesting experiment and he's planning on making a variable voltage so he can perform other experiments with other games to see what happens when the systems run at a lower than optimal power supply.
