The Official "Thrift finds" Thread

Recommended Posts

I know man, I wish I knew how to fix that, you have no idea how much that bugs me! I think it's since I got this new camera, just not good with this stuff. Anyone know what I can do?

 

And, I was hoping most could be seen fairly well without clicking becuase it is almost comical how big it blows up to.

 

I don't know if you use Windows XP, Vista or 7 but there's a free simple to use program called "image resizer" that works great. Google it based on which version of Windows you have. It just adds a right click option to resize any picture. Works great.

Dreamcast in the box w/ the hookups, paperwork, plastic baggies, cardboard insert, controller (w/VMU) and a burned copy of Marvel vs. Capcom 2 in the unit-$19.99 at Goodwill. The box is in good shape overall and the system itself is in fine shape.

BTW, wtf is up with the online rarity guide at digitpress?, It's either gone or offline.

I see it still there on the sidebar, between NAVA and Other Products.

Yeah but click on it, an error screen comes up saying rarity guide is temporarily not available, been like that for a long time, that's the case for me anyway.

It worked for me when I tried it then, and worked again just now.

 

Maybe it's something about your web browser and the message is just telling you the wrong thing?

Thank you for the heads up :thumbsup: .Since it's working for others, I now know it's not the site so I hope I can figure out what the problem is with my browser, probably just a setting or something.

Today i found a mint Flashback 2.I didn't know much about them.This thing has Haunted House 2, Save Mary, Secret Quest, Saboteur.I didn't realize these flashbacks had such fantastic games included.I figured even if the machine turns out not to work, the nice new joysticks would still make it worth it.I paid $9.99 for it. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Just had one hell of a find. Was out with my brother checking out thrift stores and in the corner on a low shelf I saw this, a boxed Sega 32X, marked down from $50 then $25 to $9.99. When we opened it up we discovered everything was still sealed in the factory bags, so we just scored a brand new 32X for $9.99. :thumbsup: As far as we can tell its 100% complete.

Yeah... the challenge with the 32X is finding all the screwy cables. It had to buy several setups to get all of the hookups. I think that there are only a handful of games that are worthwhile for the 32X, but it's still kind of a cool idea. Too bad it got pooched.

I was lucky with my 32X. I got it with a model 1 genesis bundle so I have every adapter under the sun including a nice set of AV cables for my Master System since I use my Model 2.

Filler titles for my NES collection, these were $1 a piece:

Fester's Quest

Dynowarz

NES Open

Time Lord

Life Force

Track & Field II

Side Pocket

 

These were $.50 each:

And the find of the day was Impossible Mission for the Atari 7800 for $1.95.

Unless I'm mistaken, there's another thread around here discussing the screwy cables. I believe someone said you can use a cheap old-style Macintosh (Apple) round serial cable between the Genesis and the 32X, but they recommended breaking off one of the pins. I didn't pay much attention, so this could be wrong, but it's worth a search for that thread.

It's a PowerToy for Windows XP. Linky:

 

http://www.microsoft...ppowertoys.mspx

 

Yep thats it but if he's using Windows 7 I don't think that version will work.

 

 

I'm running Vista though, what can I do? Thanks so much for the help guys!

 

Apparently the one linked here will work with XP or Vista. The link is at the bottom of the article.

Nice haul! Well that is except Gunboat which is probably the worst game I have ever played.
