#2348470 Marker on CD/Cartridges

Posted by STICH666 on Sat Aug 13, 2011 2:33 PM

Hey guys I just found a cure for the dreaded written-on cartridge and CD. I found products like Goof-Off and Goo-Gone to be too harsh for most plastics so I decided to use a product called Lift-Off. It's like night and day with my Final Fantasy VII discs.

#2344714 What do you have, that nobody else does?

Posted by STICH666 on Mon Aug 8, 2011 7:38 PM


But that's something I got:

no mortgage (I'm renting)
no loans (I earn too little to qualify, my bank just laughs at me if I ask for more money)
Pension (well, in Germany you HAVE to pay into your pension fund by law)
Very secure job (I'm employed by the town & council, that means I cannot be fired unless I do crime)
money to buy more games (since I live alone, since I don't go out, don't have any friends, nor a life....I can spend all extra monies on games)

So, you're not alone....


You've got something else my friend...

Germans typically get more vacation time than us folks in the states.

That's priceless.

-GrizzLee

Not to mention much less crime and a much higher standard of living. Also having the Nurburgring in your backyard helps.

Does anyone know if there is any truth to his story about there being a shipment of 500 brand new Virtual Boys found recently?

No problem. I think it's a very fair price especially considering his is broken. Look at those missing lines.

The solder joints get brittle over time. I've seen it happen alot on DB9 connectors mainly in Coleco Gemini's. Just reflow the solder and it should be fine.

Yeah it will accept any Atari 2600 power supply.

Posted by STICH666 on Wed Jul 14, 2010 11:30 PM

ya but, come on, ive outlined everything you need to read about this thing proving its realness! its insulting to me for people to doubt my research on this thing... IT IS A REAL AZURE BLUE EUROPEAN AUTOMOTIVE COLOR COLLECTION FAT PS2. END. OF. STORY.

I would NEVER have listed it on ebay if it werent the real thing...

ALSO to finalize this this, there is a security strip on all fat ps2's that shows if the case was removed or not. this security strip is STILL INTACT on this system.. i could go on and on and on. i have researched this thing EXTENSIVELY and im 110% sure it is WHAT I SAY IT IS

NOT WHAT STICH666 SAYS IT IS!

How ironic is it though, these systems were alloted 666 to each country and stich is mr 666 user name lol... Something evil in the air? :evil:


Said :twisted:

My big head? Anyway I wasn't calling you an idiot. I was trying to inform you that it might be a casemod. After doing the research I know my first post is wrong. My second and third posts gave two options. A: Undocumented variant or B: casemod. Now it seems it's the former. Still no reason to call me a dickhead though.

Wow buddy no reason to call me a dickhead. I'm just giving you a heads up before you put something up that may not be real. Yes it looks EXACTLY like an Automobile Collection edition BUT your system clearly says "NTSC U/C". The Automobile Collection was Europe exclusive. This means one of two things A: It is a previously unknown variant. B: it is a very professional casemod. So get your facts straight before you start calling people out. I've been here for about a year and a half and I've never had a problem with anybody and I've never intentionally tried to piss someone off. Get over yourself.
