GENERAL RETRO CHIT CHAT / Re: Grandstand Fairchild 2
« on: March 13, 2012, 08:14:15 AM »
I have one of those sticks kicking around somewhere, I did wonder what it was for, but I thought it was atari!  :P
There was a Atari compatible version of that controller made after the end of production of the Channel F. It can be recognized by the button on the handle... Look here:

DPrinny: I might have a game or two to spare... Send a PM if interested.

the grandstand Fairchild is a licensed version of the Fairchild Channel F, the first videogame with games on cartridges.

You can find more info about it here:
http://www.retrogamingcollector.com/Vintage-Consoles/Grandstand-FairchildChannelF.html
http://channelf.se

The controller is a bit special. It has a DB9 plug (same as Atari/Commodore) but it's not compatible.
The channel F controller has some special moves that a regular Atari joystick doesn't.
A picture of a controller:

With this you can go forward, backward, left and right. just as a regular 8-bit stick. But you can also press down and pull up the knob as well as turn the knob left or right.

I have one Grandstans Fairchild as well as a couple of other versions of it. It's a nice old machine. And you should really try to get hold of the newly produced Pac-Man for it. It's by far the best game for that platform.

GENERAL RETRO CHIT CHAT / Selling Beeb stuf?
« on: January 26, 2012, 10:04:17 AM »
I'm thinking of getting rid of the BBC Micro/Master part of my collection.
Does anyone have any tips on where I can find the target audience for BBC-stuff?
Here? Another forum? Where?

I'm a bit reluctant to sell on eBay as i haven't sold anything there yet.

HARDWARE/SYSTEMS DISCUSSION / Re: Dragon questions...
« on: September 14, 2011, 09:15:34 AM »
Off the top of my head:
1. Yes, the Dragon was sold outside the UK. I had a friend here in Sweden that had one. But he was just about the only one I've met that had a Dragon back in the day.
2. It's a rather close clone. But not totally compatible. some CoCo games works with Dragon some don't
   "They can use same peripherals and some cartridges, but most ROM calls will fail on the other computer." - Old-computers.com
3. Don't think so. I'd say that the Dragon 32/64 is more like a original CoCo
4. Games came on both carts and cassettes
5. As above, some games work without modification.
6. don't really know, but a starting point would be: http://www.dragon32.com/ or http://archive.worldofdragon.org/index.php?title=Main_Page
7. The CoCo 3 has "better" specs, but I always liked the Dragon better anyway :)

I have two boxed ZX81's but they are both non working :(

So I'm looking for a working ZX81. I don't need any cables, documentation or boxes just the computer.

Anyone has one that needs a new home?

Price? you tell me... But I won't spend a fortune ;)

... or I should probably say:
Hi everybody  ;)

I'm a Swedish retro computer/video game collector. I happened to stumble onto this forum after a tip from a friend of a Sord M5 multicart in the making.

My main interests are Swedish computers and anything commodore. But I collect everything I find intriguing, odd or wanted to have as a child.
Oh, I nearly forgot... I'm a Ghosts 'n Goblins (the whole series) fanatic, trying to get all the different version released. Today I'm only missing a couple of versions (that i know of). The Sharp X68000 version being the biggest hole in the collection at the moment.

I'll be posting my some pics of my collection in the right forum area soon.


Cheers!
