Hm, a little interesting. I could call it a belated vacation, and already begun to look into flights and transfer options. I asked if any of my Swedish friends are interested to go, but it is much too early to know yet.

Unfortunately could only make it for a few hours today, it was great ! Thanks for all the hard work that everyone must of put in was a fantastic setup with lots of stuff I've never seen before.  FYI - electronics have a tendency to do strange things in my presence !   The pc engine multitap was not working properly for me sometimes and the psu seems a little dodgy ! Also the NES was doing some strange things, couldnt get Mario Bros 3 to work ..

Anyway just wanted to say it was really good and look forward to the next once, cheers.

Hi Marculos,

Thanks for coming :)

Yes... the PC engine PSU (a repurposed ZX Spectrum +2 PSU) was iffy. Its actually the socket on the side of the unit that has come a little desoldered...we'll get that fixed :)

The multitap did strange things, but started working after some repluggng and a power cycle. The plugs were a little big for the multitap, so they might not have been plugged in properly as the controllers got shifted about...

Mario Bros 3 cart seems to have died :( I believe we have a spare in storage though :)

Glad you enjoyed it :)
