Machines for May 31st Gaming Event . . .
« on: April 06, 2009, 12:42:19 PM »
Could you guys please put in this thread what you are willing to bring along (console/computer wise):-
It is taking longer to sort out what RCM is bringing than I originally anticipated, as I am still sorting the machines out! :(

Thanks . . .

and to witchfinder . . .

Sharp Twin Famicom

I think maybe up to four systems per person would be the best! :)

No problem, EXCEPT... Each of the Japanese systems will need a 60Hz capable TV, and I think I only have two - I'll check though as I may be able to sort a third out. If not I could bring a PAL Saturn with import enabler cartridge in.

Don't forget I will need to make use of some of the systems for this competition I have planned. I can bring some of those too if necessary. Looks like you don't have a NES or BBC Micro lined up at the moment, though I assume Dave Moore will be supplying at least a couple of Beebs...

I'm supposed to be getting a BBC Micro off someone I know, which he's giving me @ RCM .... all going to plan, you can use that (you'll have to supply the games though, as I don't know what games you have planned, or if I even have them)

As for the NES, if no-one else is bringing one, I could bring mine ...... I don't want to bring too many systems though, it's not the systems that's the problem, more the TVs ..... I only have about 3, possibly 4 TVs that can be used.

The games are those listed in the poll.. Looks like it will be Chuckie Egg on the Beeb. But don;t worry about it, Dave will bring a Beeb with an MMC card thing attached so we'll use that.

As for the NES, if no-one else is bringing one, I could bring mine ...... I don't want to bring too many systems though, it's not the systems that's the problem, more the TVs ..... I only have about 3, possibly 4 TVs that can be used.
I'll bring my NES with a TV that is perfect for it, if nobody else can supply one. I still have more than half a dozen TVs left over from Byte Back! ;)

The list from RCM isnt finalised yet . . . I will be bringing a BBC too with Disk Drive (as last time) and we also have a MMC card for one too! Thanks to PhoenixTLB! Just forgot to put it on the list.

@Woodycool - don't think we really need a 16k speccy? okay?

@Witchfinder - we do have a NES - but I can't really bring everything - it would mean 100+ systems! ;)

Dave Moore is bringing several Beebs to network I think - I have left that with him.

No worries, I'll bring mine. You should try and spread the responsibility for bringing kit out so it isn't so hectic for you on the day... It won't work though, as I found with Byte Back! ;)

@Woodycool - don't think we really need a 16k speccy? okay?

Can't you say that about the Amstrad too?!  ;D
