Its a programming book with 21 games to write and play using BASIC. Looks very basic but fun so I thought I'd give it a go.

Well, I bought the following today:
  • The Krystal Connection (BBC Micro game)
  • MMBeeb interface for my BBC Micro
and the rest was given/traded/whatever, including the following
  • Amstrad GX4000 with Burning Rubber
  • Spectrum +2A (swapped with Jimbob005 for my Oric Atmos)
  • Some random BBC Micro games
  • Some random Amstrad CPC games
  • Some random Commodore C16 games
  • a spare SNES
  • a Cheetah 125+ joystick
Also, the following parted company with me:
  • Oric Atmos (went to Jimbob005 for the +2A above)
  • Fujitsu Siemens Pentium 4 PC (sold to PJ)
  • Sony Vaio laptop (sold to Resident Paul)
... and to top it all off, I came back with more money than I left with :D

I'm really pleased with the items I picked up. The 7800 has no power lead so that's the first thing I need to sort out, then I'll be after some games  ;D.  What time did you leave? I seen you carry some stuff out but that was early. Oh and before I forget, my Nuxx is working fine with my 800  ;)

had to go about 3 ish, youngest daughter was ill and wanted daddy.

Power supply for the 7800- easiest way would be to de-solder the original one and replace it with something a bit more modern, the Atari PSU has an impossible to find connector. Other option is if I can find a spate USA power supply I could cut the cable off and you could graft it on to a power supply.
I'll have a look at what games I have spare and let you know. You'll be wanting a cuttle cart 2 next :o

Cuttle Cart 2 = Yes Please :D

Had a quick look on eBay, there's a power supply on there for £4.99 + £2.99 P&P. I didn't pay anything for the console so paying £8 seems fare enough, although I think I'll hold on for now.

Not a computer or console related item but I just bought toggle switches, wires and soldering kit. I'm going to pop a switch onto the ST so I can choose if I want the external disk drive or external disk drive as the main one (and floppy emulator). Also I can use the soldering kit for the 8Bit 32-1 OS when it arrives.

What games do you have for the Dreamcast? Here's a few that's worth looking at.

MDK 2
Power Stone 1 & 2
Sega Rally
Sonic Adventure
Soul Calibur
Worms Armageddon

Not a big fan of Tennis but Virtua Tennis 2 is also worth looking at.

Tee Off is a great party game for the Dreamcast too.
