  1. It was pretty good, looked fwd to meeting you but maybe you couldn’t make it after all. Hope it becomes yearly. Got lots of good advice on my Amigas which are in various states of repair.
  2. Is there anyone in the Greater Toronto Area (Im in Durham Region) that would be willing to test an Amiga 1000 kb for me that came in a lot of A2000 stuff I bought?
  3. Looking for a 3.5" mostly but also could use a 5.25" one too. I had oodles back in the day but cant find one now.
  4. Roland PR-2022 daisy wheel printer in box with manual and a whole box of ribbons (which may be dry, I dont know). I believe there may be a 2nd daisy wheel as well, it might be French characters. Hoping for a local pickup in the Toronto GTA/Durham Region area. $35 CAD Really dont think I can ship this, it is really heavy but may reconsider if no local buyer is found.
  5. I happened to buy another roller controller at an estate sale on the weekend and plugged it in and it did not exhibit this behaviour. So now I will try the other controllers I have and try to narrow it down to what is happening here. Just a thought though, all the controllers that exhibited this phenomenon all have one thing in common. I had opened them up to clean them - blow out dust, clean ball with windex, clean the rollers of built up gunk, nothing deeper than that. So maybe my issues were self-inflicted somehow? I will report my test results in a little bit.
  6. Didn't see this topic covered previously, there are discussions on the Turbo drift where the vehicle won't just drive straight even if the steering wheel is not moving. No my question is about a similar behaviour in Slither using the roller controller. Not having played it in a while, I connected a roller controller and launched Slither. The shooting character started to drift in one direction until I put my hand on the roller ball then moving the character was fine and responsive. Taking my hand off the ball, it would drift again. Not always the same direction, sometimes could be N,S,E or W. Thing is I don't remember this happening in the past at all so thought this controller itself was at fault. Switching over to joystick mode and playing Centipede, it didn't happen. So curious about this, I proceeded to test 3 different roller controllers on two different CV consoles using 3 different Slither carts - it happened every time. So I could conclude this is normal and as a result of how Slither is programmed but invite feedback from others as to whether this happens with you or not, thx
  7. Reviving this old thread as I am trying to remove residue but it is tough, tried alcohol, acetone, goo gone, nothign will budge it. Heat maybe? dont want to warp anything. Suggestions? Those areas where it is gone is where it bubbled and I could pick at it with a fingernail.
  8. Replying in order of msg received, will let you all know.
  9. I thought to get this as a project but now realize Im not going to get around to doing anything with it soon. If I got the $8 I paid plus shipping from Ont, Canada then I'd be happy.
  10. We can agree to disagree - I think the shell gives away that it isnt authentic, I have the full library of Telegames USA ans UK releases - except Bumpman unfortunately - and all the shells are the same and none of them say Coleco on them. And this is the same geezer trying to sell the ultra rare Super DK so I dont trust him to begin with...
  11. And now I see what appears to be a bogus Amazing Bumpman from the same seller.
  12. Floppies are very similar case but no fan.
  13. Looks like the power connection just passes thru so any PC power supply would work, ribbon cable enclosed, some room for future enhancements on the board, there's a cooling fan, and the ribbon cable passes thru the front. Other than that it looks like Ive been holding my phone upside down all these years....
  14. I’ll crack open the enclosure and take more pics there seems to be room for an ide ribbon cable to come out through a gap at the front
  15. Your post prompted me to unpack this. I bought it but never used it. The enclosure does not have an IDE drive in it. I am fairly certain I can find the power supply too. Are you interested in tinkering with it? If so make me a reasonable offer.

  17. Ive been approached by the Mame team but havent heard of a means to get them dumped that didnt involve me sending them off somewhere with firm assurances that they'd get there and I'd get them back with zero risk.
  18. Successful transaction with a reliable buyer. Many thanks.
