If you have room mate - bring them . . . ;)

A

Will do my best ;)

Another one I forgot - I have a Nintendo Famicom + disk drive that I've been trying to sell - but no way of testing it. Does anyone have any software, power supply and leads for one of these so I can check it out? I'd be hugely grateful if anyone can help me out here.

how much were you asking for that setup? i wonder if the drive belt is intact?


I was looking for offers over £50; I think a working set-up would normally cost nearer £100. AFAIK the belt needs replacing (this is what the previous owner told me) but I don't think this is a major issue as I've heard they are easily obtainable?

are you gonna be taking it with you on sunday?

Keep an eye on you, you mean?
Its my pride and joy at the moment, boxed in excellent condition but whats the point in having these things if they are just gonna sit in a box in the loft forever more?
Also has the official unused rechargeable battery pack. Will probably not work now but its nice to have.

Nice one mate - we will be here for the duration - even when we DO find premises - the website/forums will still be an important part of RCM.

When I started RCM in May/June 2008 - I never imagined it would be this huge to be honest. Thanks to some great friends (who know who they are) at the beginning - RCM version 1 was born in July 2008! The old website that I did was absolute pants! ;) And as you know this website (version 2) was launced quite recently. The friends I have made from this, are all, without doubt the best friends anybody could wish for. We must be doing something right as we have a lot of hits per day and from all over the world too! :)

I couldn't really wish for anything more than what we have now! :) (apart from somebody coming along to help finance the premises etc).

Enough of me rambling . . . A

Well loaded the van with the 2 Sega Twins and the rest will go on 2nd load no problem, will be looking for a volenteer to help load up 2nd load but its a doddle with tail lift just want to avoid one falling off, and yes done that before and they dont bounce well....mind you still worked afterwards.

Might be able to squeeze a GunBlade NY on too but dont want to take over the show  ;D

Looking forward to seeing the Virtual On being played, taken nearly a year to get it running so hoping it survies the day...be good test for it.

And if your all enjoy these then next event, I'll get the triple screen Ridge Racer Running and my F355 Triple screen too  ;D

As usual I will be lugging around a big bag of 20p's so if need change just tap me on the shoulder.

If you get Triple Screen Ridge Racer running I know I will be playing that....Lots  :D

Ridge Racer is one of my all time favourite arcade games.....I still strongly remember my first go in the full scale version  ::)

Machines will take £1/50p/20p & 10p coins so dont worry to much about having only 20p's  ;D
