FOR SALE / WANTED / FS: Xbox - Steel Battalion
« on: May 05, 2012, 10:20:59 PM »
Hey guys and gals,

I want to sell my Steel Battalion for the Xbox.

I bought it for £100, boxed complete from Console Passion at the 2010 Replay show in Blackpool. I've completed the game and want to sell.
I want to sell at £90. It's at a loss I know, but I've had a tenner's value out of it and ideally would like to bring to the members event next week for a quick sale and to avoid shipping.

Recent completed auctions on Ebay show £90 to be a decent price. Photo's available if you wish. The box has shelf wear. Item itself is in excellent condition.
Please let me know of any interest. I will post with courier (est 10-15) if you aren't at the do next weekend. Payment by cash or paypal gift.

Cheers! Steve

FOR SALE / WANTED / FS: Super Wild Card 24Mb
« on: September 13, 2011, 08:59:21 PM »
Hi folks,

I've got a 24Mb Super Wild Card for sale.
It's missing the top flap covering the cart port (as most are).
It's had a new floppy drive fitted at some point as the case has been forced, because screws are a bit loose but case is complete and device in full working order.

If you search google for Super Wild Card, then the video result is this machine in action.

£30? That a fair price?
Can bring Saturday.

Let me know. Thanks, Steve

HARDWARE/SYSTEMS DISCUSSION / C64 - no sound
« on: May 30, 2010, 04:40:40 PM »
I picked up a nice Breadbin 64 at a boot last weekend.
I get a nice picture through RF, but there is no sound at all (in game, Pokes etc).
If I use an AV lead, then there is no picture at all (just a hum).

Could it possibly be just a duff SID, or is the fact that the AV out doesn't work possibly indicate something else?

Cheers
Steve

HARDWARE/SYSTEMS DISCUSSION / eMac. RCM?
« on: January 20, 2010, 07:03:16 PM »
eMac G4 700MHz, 1GB RAM, CD drive?
Starts fine, displays flashing question mark.

I have inherited 3 at work, and have to keep the 2 runners. This is the one that doesn't start. Presume hard disk dead. Might be as easy as needing an OS install, but based on the status of the other 2, presume hard disk (IDE 40GB) dead.

I haven't got time to fix (plus it's quite involved replacing an eMac hard disk).
Including keyboard and mouse. Does RCM want first refusal. (Have cleared it with the IT manager).

Cheers

Steve
