I have just been doing a bit of a tally up - looks like we *might* need another couple of tvs . . . :(
I guess we could always swap computers over half way through the day though . . . should be okay i guess?

I am bringing:-

2x small portable tv's (hope they both still work)
24 inch tv (Andy - If you want this after you are welcome as it's not been used)
couple of multi plugs & extension leads
(I have an older 15 inch TFT PP screen with VGA input if you want me to bring that too)

Oric 1 48k
Boxed Commodore 128 (not sure if it works as I've got no software to test! - Happy to donate it to museum though)
Atari Flashback
Family Video Game 168 (NES Clone)
Atari Jaguar + Games
Box of Dreamcast Magazines
USA Gamecube, Game Boy Advance and PacMan Vs + Games

Midway Arcade Treasures 2 & 3, Intellevision Lives and Sonic Gems for PS2

I'll sort out various games for different systems.

Can't remember if i said anything else?

Mmmm, some one said Xbox, will I have room for Steel Battalion?

Re: screens, if you haven't got one already I could bring my Dreamcast VGA adapter so you can plug it into a monitor/speakers, freeing up a TV...

What time do you want us there to set up Andy?

@Witchfinder . . .

Thanks for the offer of the VGA adapter - I already have one thank you but very good of you to offer though!

We could do with everybody who has equipment etc to be there before 9.30am at the latest please?

See you all then! :)

I think '!!!' I only have two RGB Scart TVs, one which will have my Dreamcast plugged into? The other *might* be useable?

:( - normal vga monitor is no problem.

What we may have to do is do some swaps if/when things are a little stale?  :'(

I was going to bring my laptop with Tanks 4 The Memories on Jim's Yabasic Emulator, but I'll bring it on PS2 Memory card instead as I cannot get it to work. I spent 2 whole hours trying to copy it as well!

See you there.

Ive been given a composite to vga adapter box. Will bring it with me incase there is a lack to TVs.

Its not fantastic quality. but better than nothing...

My gear will need a Scart TV, apart from the VIC-20 PC.
