Purchased a SNES Doctor SF.....It's untested so probably won't work...but for £15 delivered it's worth a go  ;)

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=350373599134&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT#ht_1902wt_911

Don't know how much memory it has though  ???

If it does not work then hopefully the memory can be added to my Super Wild Card SMS 3201  :D as that's only got 16M onboard

hmph that IS cheap - I forked out 40 notes for my wildcard on ebay last week  :o

lol @ untested, you know its an ebay code word for "totally shafted" right?  ;D
like the car boot phrase "I checked it last night" which ends in a silent "..and it didn't work"

I know...that is what it usually means  : :(

but if it does not work hopefully I can use the memory to increase my existing SWC.

I'd have thought there would be plenty of scope to fix it. It might just need a blow  ;D

Saw this NAOMI board with WWF Royal Rumble game on ebay yesterday. It had 4 hours left to go and the price was unbelievably cheap considering there was a game included. It was located in the US so checked the seller posted woldwide and how much postage would be and placed a bid accordingly. Only went and won the thing. Altogether, including delivery it came to about £60. Will hopefully be able to sell the motherboard cheaply (assuming it works) and near enough break even.

a major haul of stuff landed today.
first, a brand spanking new chassis for my monitor, i can finally get the right chassis installed.
secondly, a big box of unidentified non jamma pcbs.
Just finished IDing them from the ROMs/PROMs.
Galaga
10 yard fight - irem
Pitfall II - Sega/Activision
Golden Axe - Sega
Vigilante - Irem (bootleg?)
Phoenix - Amstar
Terra Cresta - Sega
Hangley-Man (set3) - Pacman hack
Phoenix - Centuri Set1

The second Phoenix board and the Hangly-Man are completely knackered, half the ROMs wont read and the PROMs have most of their legs missing.
Chuffed to bits ive got a Golden Axe board

Love Phoenix. My Mame cab is an old Zacharria Pheonix cab. Guessing from Germany due to the small fortune of coins i found in the coin box. Took me ages to adjust the mechanism to accept an an english 10p :-)

Chap from work was having a bit of a clear out so gave me an Atari ST with quite a few disk boxes (will be playing with this tonight), x2 toshiba 486 DOS laptops with all the trimmings including their fantastic cases. A Tosh 286 based laptop sadly without any psu mains and a old console with a few carts. Printztronic something or other.
