  2. If my ColecoVision has sccrambled video when playing a ColecoVision game, but plays 2600 games just fine through the Atari Converter the problem is probably with the notorious power switch, correct?

      When atari attachment is install, it bypass the CV hardware completely. Firmly reinsert the power cord, so the -5, +5 voltage are connected otherwise the VRAM get wiped.

      No problem at all. Plays 2600 games just fine :)

  3. Sold some Amiga 500 software to user mattsoft. Good communication and fast payment. Super smooth transaction from start to finish.
  4. I have a boxed Amiga 500 computer I bought a while ago but haven't really gotten around to using much. I'm thinking about moving by the end of the year and need to get rid of some stuff now to clear space and save up some money. The computer comes with two joystick and a mouse, and the power supply of course. Computer has one of those dumb rubbery keyboard covers on it. Will also include the Amiga Workbench floppies I have. Looking for $300 plus shipping via UPS Ground. PayPal is preferred payment method. There's a box of big box games/software as well. I played around with them a bit and they do get a bit glitchy at times from the disk rot. They play pretty well for the most part, though, and the boxes are in good condition. Don't have a set price for these and am open to offers. Would like to sell them all in one go if possible. Already sold the monitor locally and will probably sell the Amiga books to the same fellow. Located in 95124. I also have some Apple Macintosh SE stuff, but I can't test it since the computer isn't working properly. If you're interested in gambling on some untested hardware send me a message and I can let you know what I've got.
  5. Windows 10 tablets are pretty fun.

      Is there any low-priced model that you all can recommend? I like to get one from Best Buy because I went through 2 Android tablets that died on me. I like using Win 10 and have no problem getting an Android emulator for apps. I just want to get one for web browsing, ebooks & playing Win 10 games...

      The NuVision one referenced should be fine and comes in 8 inch or 10 inch. 8 inch is best if you want to use it in bed for games or Netflix.

      Yeah, I've been liking the 2017 NuVision one. Haven't played any games on it, but it's been working well for web browsing, reading manga, connects to the NAS alright, and it's even done okay at playing 10-bit 1080p anime files. Pretty good battery life so far. Haven't had to charge it in the middle of the day yet, just have to plug it in at night.

  6. Heh. That's the game which was inside my FZ-1 when I bought it at the flea market. Pretty decent game. It's no Space Pirates, though.
  7. It's been a while since I've posted anything since I've been so busy and haven't been buying much. I've been hitting the flea market pretty regularly recently, though, since I've started selling on eBay instead of doing back breaking manual labour. The other day I found an old Osborne OSS2 portable computer for only $20. I also bought a TRS-80 Color Computer 2 and a Timex Sinclair 1000 computer, along with a boxed copy of SNAFU (one of my favourite Intellivision games) for the Aquarius computer for $20 from a fairly new vendor at the market who I've sort of become buddies with. He's got my number now and is going to call me whenever he comes across older computers in the storage containers he buys. Also picked up a Macintosh SE with keyboard, two mice, external 3.5" floppy drive and external HDD for $50. I don't have pictures for it, though, since it's still in the trunk of my car. I love the flea market lifestyle.
  8. I am interested for sure. Send me a PM. I only have four games for the console right now.
  9. I am helping my friend with a convention by bringing ~30 consoles, but I don't have very many games for several of them (I only buy games I find in the wild). I'm looking to do a mass purchase of cheaper games for the following consoles: Sega Master System buying flashcart Turbografx-16 buying flashcart Sega Pico TI-99/4a Sega Genesis flashcart available to me Colecovision Atari Jaguar These are listed in the importance of the consoles. The consoles at the top of the list are more important than the consoles at the bottom. I am also looking for the following: SNES AV cable (x2) Genesis 1 AC adapter (x3) Pico AC adapter (I think Genesis 2 AC adapters can be used, but I don't remember) Master System controller Turbografx-16 controller Panasonic 3DO controller 3DO mouse controller I would like to get as much of this in one go as I can. I'm not concerned about getting a lot of classics or great games since I'm paying for this out of pocket and am lending the consoles for free. Pretty much any games that aren't sports games are cool. I'm just trying to provide variety for people who are trying out non-Nintendo/Sega consoles for the first time. I don't want to spend more than $250 total.
  10. I have a friend with a video game music jazz/funk band who makes flashdrives with the band's music on them out of old SNES sport games and low capacity flashdrives. I got him his last batch of drives from someone on Reddit, but he contacted me again and asked me if I knew where we could get more. I figured someone here may have a stash of extra drives they might want to sell or trade. I have a decent stash of video games, consoles, and accessories that I'd be up for trading for them if anyone's interested. The drives don't need to match since they're being put inside of a game cartridge, they just need to be at least 1GB so we can fit both albums on the drives. The last batch I got him consisted of 70 drives at roughly 50 cents a piece, but I'd be willing to buy smaller lots. I've added a photo below of what the drives look like, so you can get the general idea of what we're doing.
  11. Can't say no to that selection and those prices!
  12. Unfortunately there are no voice modules. All I bought was twelve extremely dirty consoles with whatever controllers were attached to them. No peripherals, no games, no power supplies.
  13. What have I gotten myself into? I got a bit drunk the other day and bought twelve untested Odyssey2 consoles on eBay shipped for $150. I'll be happy if I can piece together three or four working consoles out of this and miraculously sell the rest of them for parts.
  14. Bought a Commodore plus/4 and some ColecoVision games. I'm absolutely happy with my purchase. Everything arrived safely and quickly. Looking forward to playing around with the Commodore a bit more!
  15. I've heard of it (even downloaded both of 'em), but I still haven't seen it. I assume they're kind of similar to the old Russ Meyer skin flicks and Barbarella?
