well my French systems turned up today, despite breaking a few of my own rules, namely
  • don't buy from france,
    don't buy from e-bay,
    don't buy anything that does not have power supply/cables as that is ebay speak for I know it's knackered but I am going to fleece you anyway

both the Colecovision and the 7800 work!!, super nice RGB video output on both. The joysticks on the CV don't want to go right, but I think I can fix that little problem ;D

Just bought 6 Games Carts for the Commodore Max.

I don't even own a Commodore Max  :D

But the games carts for the Max are rarer than the machines themselves and they also work in the C64  :)

A whopping 2 quids worth of bits for a homemade cable for the PC-to-Roland Synth module I repaired, this little thing is awesome now I can pump some data to it, looking forward to getting it hooked up to the Atari ST and Notator sometime soon, that and the midi keyboard I found and fixed too :)

£81.88 GBP through Paypal. The price $129.00 includes postage to the UK!. I decided to get the cheaper one without the battery backup, as it seems only a few games need the battery backup, and I don't play those kind of games.

Just bought a pair of Speedking Joysticks for the Commodore 16 (Yes, they have the little round DIN connectors!) and a set of CX50 Keyboard Controllers for the Atari 2600.

I am spending far too much money I don't have at the moment.

Wow. Didn't even know something like this existed for the PC Engine.

Just a few questions...

1. How well does it work?
2. Is it easy to load the games onto?
3. How many games can be put on at once?
4. does it take the standard .PCE files or do they need to be converted to another format?
