No worries, I'll let you know how I get on modding the einstein to take 3.5" disks.

Lynx will be better now I can get games loaded !

Trying to sort more games for the M5

It is  ;D will get it all buttoned up, will you have a disc drive? or maybe I can fill my multicart up with games?
Will need to borrow a load of joysticks though, to be honest 8 players is a lot more manageable than 16!!
May have a rotary controller for T2K built by then too if I pull my finger out

I would like to bring my PC for reasons that we discussed the other day (it's a surprise to those who don't know)
Doesn't look likely now .... not had any time to actually sort this out, besides, I no longer have a working monitor (and I cannot steel the parent's one)

Two Jag CD units will be better than one.  Just in case as they're notoriously picky at reading discs.

Hopefully my VERY modded Atari 600XL should be ready in time. Any chance I can bring it along?
Also working on a Jaguar rotary controller for Tempest 2000. Will definitely bring that along if I can get it working. I am on plan D now but progressing in the right direction

Do you have a RS232 adapter for your CPCs? If so - bring it. :) (But your CPC would need to be within 1m/2m from my setup)

I have had to build a new imaging PC after my motherboard failure the other day.

I've gone from a 800Mhz Celeron to a 2.8ghz P4. Still have the 3.5", 3", 5 1/4 PC type drives plus a C= 1541-II and a Atari 1050.

New PC is bit of a hybrid of parts. Case is HP, PSU is Dell and motherboard is Advent. RAM, AGP card etc are from pile of 'bits'.

Now that I have a faster machine, I can also run emulators etc on it to make sure disk images work. Bring your favorite emu's on USB stick!

Will also have my CPC6128 with 'addons' :)
