  1. I may give this a try this year. I'm not much of a gamer, but really need to try out a bunch of games I've never played. Do I need to sign up somewhere? Randy co-host ANTIC Podcast ataripodcast.com host Floppy Days Podcast floppydays.com
  2. Mine broke upon first use. Probably my fault. Doubtful that I installed it correctly. Randy
  3. Hi, all. I want to get the best video I can out of the C128. I have a SCART to HDMI upscaler that works so great for the many different machines I've used it for (Atari ST, Amiga, Amstrad CPC, Sinclair ZX Spectrum (+2A), Oric Atmos, BBC Micro, Atari 800XL with Sophia) that have RGB out and want to do the same with the C128. Has anyone used the following cables and/or can tell me if these will or won't work? And why are there 2 different ones? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Commodore-C128-C128D-Kabel-an-SCART-40-80-Zeichen-2-0-Meter/361509837112 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Commodore-C128-C128D-an-TV-Scart-80-Z-Color-mit-Ton-3-Meter/361509837110 thanks!
  4. This is great! Color me interested!! Randy http://www.floppydays.com http://www.ataripodcast.com
  5. This is SOLD. SOLD on ebay for my Buy It Now price, which is amazing (and was much more than $500)! thanks, all Randy
  6. That's silly. I've been watching Sorcerer's for years now and I've never seen a working one go for less than $500 on eBay, let alone with box, manuals, and BASIC cart.
  7. Yeah, I can't break it up. That would definitely de-value it. For your edification, and others, according to the badge on the bottom it's a DP1000-2, which means it's indeed a Model II and can be upgraded to 48K by simply plugging in some RAM chips. You're right that there isn't a good single place for info. Terry Stewart has some good information on his site and has a lot of software in WAV format ready for loading in through the cassette port. I've tried that by using my phone as the virtual cassette and it works. I didn't know there was an SD to cassette device! Do you have more information on it? I'll bring this Sorcerer to VCFMW if no one buys it by then. It will be for sale at the show in that case.
  8. There is an advantage in that, indeed. And not paying the eBay fee. I would be willing to go down to $550 for a known quantity. If you were coming to VCF Midwest or Tandy Assembly and I could deliver by hand, I would be willing to go down to $525. Randy
  9. Yeah, I might. It's definitely cool. I just wish I had time to do something with it. I did play with loading audio files from my phone through the Sorcerer cassette interface to load software. Got it to work fine.
  10. sounds good. I may bring it to VCFMW. Depends on how it goes between now and then with this. thanks
  11. Agreed on dealing with eBay. But, based on what I have in it and the completeness of this package, $600 would be the minimum amount. Could deliver it to VCFMW or Tandy Assembly, both occurring in September.
  12. As Tempest said, a working boxed system is worth at least $600, and I wouldn't take less than that.
  13. just throw me a bid via PM, if interested. I'm probably also going to list on eBay. So far, I'm not seeing reasonable bids for this.
  14. For sale: I'm going to give up my boxed Exidy Sorcerer. Has original manuals and BASIC cartridge. Works great. The sale of this helps fund the Floppy Days Podcast and everything I'm trying to do. Box is rough but serviceable. Sorcerer is yellowed but works well. It's very hard to find a complete working package like this, even with the box issues and yellowing. Highest bid over the next week will get it. PM me with questions or interest. IMG_4824.MOV
  15. Does anyone have tips or (even better) a video on exactly how to install a new port (hole) in the back of your XL case for routing out something like Sophia video? I'm looking for the best way to do this, the parts and tools required, and any tips. thanks! Randy
