@Amigaman

I converted an MVS metal Slug to AES once by swapping some of the ICs over, quite complicated to do but worked out well, I used King of Fighters 94 AES as a base.

It is a class game 8)

I agree Metal Slug is ace!!! I remember when I was totally HOOKED in arcade in old days and I am glad I bought MVS let alone Metal Slug Aes(too expensive!!!)

I have finished King of Fighters 94 with character called ROBERT but the boss in end was Hard!
Great Game ;D

I have King of fighter 94,95,2001 (they are all AES games  ;) ) ;D

My very cheap 1541-II turned up today. A bit grubby but it works. So much smaller than the original 1541.

Just need to make my JiffyDOS ROM/switch combination. Will be a job for when I get back form Holiday.

A Phillips Videopac 7000.  No games but has power supply and aerial unit.  RCM donation as it'd probably need looking at before use as it was dumped on the grass at Rhyl car boot.  Total cost £1! :)

Will bring it with me to Eurocon.

It'll work. They're tough little things. Get hold of "terrahawks" or "pickaxe pete" and you'll find yourself hooked! :)
Would be happy to see one of those at RCM though! :)

Books books books, I love retro books.

The official Computer Program Book that went with the 1982 BBC TV series.

Also a copy of the brand new Spectrum ULA book from the guy who made the Harlequin machine.

Good haul at the carboot.

Amstrad CPC464
Amstrad DD1 disk drive for the 464 (Wanted one of these for ages!)
Amstrad MP1 - Power supply and RF modulator for the CPC464 only. (No 12v for 664/6128)
Amstrad CPC firmware manuals
Dk'tronics 64k RAM addon for the CPC464 (R@RE!!!  ;D)
Lots of CPC disks and tapes.
4 boxes of boxed Amiga games
100s of Amiga 'backups'
C64 tapes.
Lots of various programming books

Whole lot - £25. Bargain considering the DD1 disk drive and controller.
