  1. I made a remark on this subject in the Status updates but these things move fast so I thought I'd try again here. Basically I got a desktop PC again but it's for work and most of my gaming is on Raspberry. I did fire up Retroarch recently just for kicks but then I was impressed by the shaders and had a closer look. Turns out that while most platforms are covered there are serious gaps such as Apple II or proper Amiga (the one included is poorly documented and requires some esoteric steps). There's also a few of the less popular machines such as TRS, Oric, TI-99 or BBC missing. So, I wonder what's the reason for that? None of the explanations proposed in the SU seem feasible to me: there are already cores which use keyboards and obviously it's not about performance since Retroarch does support demanding cores such as Dreamcast, latest MAME or N64. Is it all about popularity and total Nintendo/consoles dominance of the retro scene then? Even so, people added these other platforms to RetroPie which is perhaps less or equally popular as RA...
  2. Apple's infamous G4 Cube computer was beautiful but ultimately flawed. In this video I show its many quirks and why it quickly died at retail. These are definitely one of the more collectable Apple computers out there. I searched for almost 2 years to find one in good condition and complete in box with all the original speakers, power supply etc. Such a beautiful computer and I'm stoked to have it in my game room now! Any other fans of the Apple G4 Cube? What are your experiences upgrading it?
  3. Hi all! I will be moving so need to reduce my collection of vintage computer gear. I have placed some pictures of the many things I am selling on this post. I am adding new things each day. A short list of items... DECTalk Voice Synths (aka Stephan Hawkings) Tandy 1000SX IBM PC acoustic modem Tandy Model 100 Portable NEC PC201 Portable (like the Tandy 100 Portable) Compaq portable that is a beast (aka early portable!) TRS-80 CoCo with composite MOD Apple II drive Vortrax Voice Synth (a serious bad ass speech synth w/ Vortrax IC!!!!) There are some music samples CDs in my list so keep scrolling to the end. Also, there is a iSlate tablet. It's not retro but with the EYE TRACKER, it cost a total of $20K. All my items are here... https://www.ebay.com/sch/colorcomputerstore/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from= All are shipping from my place in Mass. Outside of Boston. I have turned on Global shipping for all items too. Thanks for helping make my move easier folks!
  4. so I have a macintosh se and I wanna get everything for it, I have keyboard and printer and the mouse and computer (obviously). what other accessories would you recommend I get next/
  5. I picked up an Apple Macintosh 512k for Christmas. Though I am not much of an Apple guy, I always wanted one of these in my collection. So I'm trying to find a list of software, not so much for the 128k but for the 512k system. I've done several searches on the world wide web and haven't found a single, easy to read, list. I'm looking for both 1st party and 3rd party software that was available in the time frame that system was being sold. I know, I'm asking for a lot but can anyone help me?
  6. Looking for a usb Zip drive! Any model will do. Also I'm looking for any apple ii games. As well as version 4 or 5 of gs/os. (Recently got an apple 2gs) Thanks for looking. Pm me if you have something I'd like to buy it from you.

  8. Hello, all. I've purchased a Diamond Trackstar 128 but the utility disk wasn't included. Sadly this disk is needed in order to actually use the hardware. A Teledisk disk image is available from the asimov FTP, but it doesn't work... because the original disk is copy-protected. Software for the later Trackstar models is also available for download -- and by this time the company learned that copy-protecting the disks made no sense -- but these don't work with the 128. If someone has an extra working utility disk available for the Trackstar 128 I'd like to arrange to either buy it, or borrow it for proper disk imaging using special hardware. Thanks. Please contact me here or by e-mail (e-mail preferred) if you can help... [email protected]
  9. ALL SOLD First up, a very nice ImageWriter II, in original box with manual, power cable, and a cable to hook it up to a classic Mac. I hooked it up to my Mac SE, and it appears to work fine, but the ink is dried up, so I can't actually print with it. I got this in a lot with the Mac SE and a bunch of other stuff that was in great shape and all worked fine, so I'd be surprised if there was anything wrong with this. In really stellar condition, box is just a little dirty, but otherwise everything is sharp. Would like $25 for this, and/or trade, what do you have? Let's talk: PANASONIC PRINTER SOLD! Next up, a Panasonic KX-P1090 printer. I don't have any way of hooking this up to anything, so you'd need to supply your own data cable and interface, but it powers fine. Got this in a lot of nice Atari 8-bit stuff. You can still get brand new ink ribbons for these!! So, this is a great classic printer to have if you want to use a printer with your Atari, Commodore, Apple, or whatever. In great physical condition. Would like $10 for this, and/or trade, what do you have? Let's talk: Thanks!
  10. I'm forwarding this on behalf of the SRCS admin because I think some people here could find this interesting. Come one, come all, to the Seattle Retro-Computing Society's regular monthly meeting! It will be held Saturday, August 25th from 11:30 AM to 5:00 PM. Do you do any of the following with old computers? Will you be near Seattle on Saturday? + Use, collect, and/or restore them + Play games on them + Write programs for them + Develop new hardware for them + Help other people do any of the above If your answer was "yes," then the SRCS is for you! We exist so you can show off your awesome stuff, bounce ideas off of fellow enthusiasts, and be inspired by one another's achievements, plans and aspirations. No idea is too big or too small, and we're not picky about what flavor of vintage machine you prefer! Come on down and tell us about it! The meetings are graciously hosted by the Living Computer Museum, which is gradually fitting out a computer museum in Seattle's SODO neighborhood. There will be refreshments, a Buy-Sell-Free-Trade table, and enough table space & power to set up anything you may want to show off! For further details, please see our web page at http://www.seattleretrocomputing.com/ and our mailing list at http://groups.google...attle-retrocomp . Hope to see you there!

  11. looking to sell my 512k complete set
  12. What's the easiest way to get an old complete w/ case iPod? I've been looking to start an Apple collection and my first main target are the iPod series. I have checked ebay and most of the iPods for sale are 200+ with the case and everything. I personally think flea markets aren't the best place to find cheap updated stuff. Anyways if anyone can name a website or place or just something to tell where I should go for finding old discontinued iPods for cheap. For Ex: the iPod Nano 3 gen is more expensive than the updated version in the official Apple stores we have now!
  13. From the album: RetroElectroDad Computer Collection

    An unusual Apple IIe that has the platinum colouring but no number pad. Turns out it's an unusual International Platinum IIe. It's now souped-up with a CFFA3000, Titan Accelerator IIe, VGA Scaler and Mockingboard.

  15. I wanted to start a G4 Cube thread and pool some information and resources here as they are slowly disappearing elsewhere around the web. The cube is moving slowly from a viable web surfer (you still can do web and email no problem) to being more of a vintage program and gaming machine. Pictured below on the desk is my example. I am running OS 9.2.2 and 10.4.11 Tiger. More info on the Cube: http://lowendmac.com/2000/power-mac-g4-cube/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_Mac_G4_Cube I have currently upgraded my RAM to 1.5 GB (the most it will take.) The HDD to 120GB, it will take 128 without partitioning schemes, though apparently there is a patch available that will allow it to accept "big" drives (more on that later.) And I found a Nvidia Geoforce3 MX 64 GB graphics card to replace the stock 16mb unit. Also will soon be ordering a DVD-R Superdrive (internal) to replace the stock unit which is prong to failure. Currently using a MCE external CD-R firewire drive. Here are the best places to get Cube upgrades, as well as for most other macs (ebay as well of course): https://www.macsales.com/ http://www.wegenermedia.com/ http://www.mcetech.com/ http://fastmac.com/ I am still looking for a G4 Cube processor upgrade. They don't seem to be available anywhere commercially, so I'm waiting until one pops up on ebay. Please do PM me if you have an extra one you are willing to part ways with. Some articles on the Cube: http://www.cultofmac.com/85894/decade-old-g4-cube-gets-updated-runs-leopard-looks-amazing/ http://www.macworld.com/article/3044049/hardware/behold-the-g4-cube-apples-most-epic-computer-ever.html I will post updates on upgrading various aspects of the cube, for starters RAM, Graphics card, and HD, but hopefully eventually the Processor and various software/hacks as well. More to come! Please post all your cube memories, wisdom and info here. https://youtu.be/69PE6XSqE0g
  16. Folks: Hi ho, Apple users. I have a few Apple programming guidebooks which I am putting up on Ebay. Some are already up, some more are going up today/this week. I play around with TI and Commodore, but not Apple, so I don't have a whole lot of use for them, though they are great books. Putting most of them up for around $10. Not really trying to make bank on these, just picking up a little cash for a few toys Santa seemingly forgot to bring. ^_^ I also have a random Tandy 1400HD power supply and a Vtech LCD Talking Baseball game up. Tandy PS is tested and working, but having no Tandy 1400HD, etc etc. Talking Baseball is ubercheese but the voice cracks me up.

  17. Just wanted to see if anybody had a basic Apple IIGS setup(monitor, keyboard, mouse, some kind of floppy drive, maybe joystick) and get an idea of what they're going for. Fascinating little system.

  19. Trying to decide whether to buy an iPad or Commodore 64 as your next portable computer? I'm here to help! Let's walk through the Pros & Cons of each and help you make an informed decision. Who won?
  20. The Vectrex home console was a bit of an anomaly back in the early 80s, with it's vector based graphics, built in TV and analog joysticks. Now, that classic & rare console has been lovingly brought to the iOS platform along with many of the games. I review the iPad version along with the iCade and come away impressed! If you are having problem starting the app, it's because your iPad is jailbroken...

  22. Hey guys. I was at my local Habitat for Humanity today doing a bit of thrifting to kill time before work and stumbled onto what I consider to be quite the find, at least for my area. There was a Power Mac G5 1.6 GHZ tower sitting there with no price looking a little worse for wear but otherwise in pretty good condition. The resident tech expert guy and I had a bit of a conversation about the unit and he agreed to test it out and value it so that I could decide if it was something I wanted to grab. On power up, the fan would spin and the single white LED on the front would flash once every five seconds. Being that there wasn't a chime sound, I knew immediately the system wasn't POSTing successfully and explained it to the guy, who thought for a moment and said that he really didn't want to deal with it and offered it to me for $5. Yes, please. A bit of research has led me to suspect the ram as being the culprit. I tried removing and reseating both 128MB sticks, trying them in the various slots, but no change was observed so I ordered a couple replacement sticks to see if they can make it work. I have also read some amount of anecdotal evidence suggesting the early G5s are prone to solder joint failure, particularly on the ram slots which is a bit worrisome. I have limited experience with Macintosh towers. My experience with Macs in general comes from an iMac 600MHZ I used to have as well as a couple of iterations of laptops. I figure the absolute worst case is that I can use the machine for parts if I can't make it work, but I wonder if it's worth swapping the logic board or whether there are any potential pitfalls I should be aware of?
  23. Hi all, I have a new video up showing my adventure as I try to get an Apple ImageWriter II printing with a Macintosh LC II Hope you enjoy! Steve https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9LQiUcjZayM
  24. I'm looking for Apple M0100 mice (Mouse IIe, Mouse IIc, or similar models). I'll take them in any condition - broken, missing pieces, cut cable, bad attitude. My plan is to make USB optical mice out of them to sell. There are a bunch on eBay, but people want ridiculous amounts for them, even in bad shape. If you send me one, and want it converted, I'll give you a break on the final price (as yet, undetermined). If you send me more than one, you can get one of them back, converted to USB for free. If you just want to offload your old mice, I'm offering $10 each in good condition, $5 for broken ones. I'll also pay for (reasonable) shipping. Message me if you have one (or a box full) you want to get rid of.
