Here you go, the list seems exact to what's on the cart. Not got through them all yet but Patriots (Missile Command) plays really well.

Yep, for £20 can't go wrong really. Good quality build & nice menu navigation. Just need to find a case to fit because i don't really want to use a working original cartridge case. Got an old c64 Action Replay cart that no longer working so might use that..or might nip into Maplins at the weekend and have a look at there DIY project cases.

Few shots of the Vectrex Multicart if any one is interested?

The homebrew arcade clones are really good. Especially Frogger, Missile Command and what appears to be Discs of Tron.

Will bring to RCM Nov if anyone wants a look?

Just bought TRON Solar Sailor for the Intellivision, one of the rare ones that use the intellivoice cart/adaptor, now got two out of the 5 carts that use this, on the look out for the other 3 !!  ;)

My latest purchase ..... BLANK TAPES :D

Some of my old CPC games have got a little bit knackered, but I have .CDT images, and a way of transferring the games back to a real tape, for use in my CPC 464 :D

Woody,

Do you have another way, rather than connecting the PC speaker out to the Stereo/tape recorder ?

YES!
What I do is ..... I use WinTZX to convert the Amstrad CDT file (but will also work with a Spectrum TZX file) to a WAV .... then I burn that to a CD-RW (as I don't intend to keep a CD copy) .... finally, using a HIGH QUALITY CD PLAYER & TAPE DECK, I record the contents of the CD onto a tape.
I must stress the use of HIGH QUALITY equipment. Them crappy little tape machines that people normally plug into their Spectrum/Amstrad/Oric etc. are not good enough.
I use a Sony hi-fi seperate CD player and a Sony hi-fi seperate tape deck. Make sure the recording level is set high (but not max, otherwise it'll distort the recording, I find having it bang in the middle is good enough) and make sure all effects (equaliser, dolby NR etc.) are all turned OFF!
Doing the above will create a perfectly good recording of the data.

I got Super Pitfall II for the NES (a previously unreleased game) a couple of weeks ago from Nintendo Age. That'll go nicely with the rest of my NES collection!
