Commodore Kleptomania

Hi all,

This is my website I put together to catalogue all my machines as I restored them... there's about 40 or so systems all together with various original and unusual Commodore upgrades.

Feel free to have a looksee if you have two minutes, always grateful of any comments

www.urbecks.com/commodore

Its also got my Urban Exploration stuff on there as well if sneaking around old asylums and military bases interests you!

Cheers

nothing wrong with a healthy obsession

When you say "My Commodore corner in the kids gaming room" you really mean your room don't you

Impressive collection! Why 'kleptomania' though? You didn't steal all that stuff did you?

Wow... and I don't refer to the blizzard game here but the Amiga collection!
They look all like new from the in- and outside. You've really taken good care of the old ladies.

BTW I like the picture with the little guy on the keyboard looking up to the guy on the screen. Model railroad figures?

Thanks all.... appreciate the kind comments :-)

I have a bit of an OCD with yellowing so tend to hunt down machines that have escaped it... I'm still hunting an illusive non yellowed 128D though if anyone has one they would like to sell

@Michael... yeah, model railway figures... I know I know, I clearly have too much time on my hands lol!

Not as rare as the non yellowed 128D...
But never say never.Maybe in some warehouse in malaysia or india.

Thinking about it, the first one I ever saw as a kid was, if at all, 5 or 6 years old.
I thought the yellow was the original color. ^^
But the first owner was just smoking a lot, as I have been told after yelling about the ugly brown plastic.Away from that it looked so much cooler than my old 64.

Well i dunno seeing as only very few FMV modules actually made it out before Commodore closed down, what a glory it was to plug it into my CD32 and watch Star Trek VI on CD !

You're a lucky one.A CD32 equiped with that module could have been a poor man's laserdisc.

If C= had only implemented it. As well as the 030,4MB fastram and something like the graffiti instead of the mostly unused Akiko. All of that in a white CDTV case.

Nice Collection. I want to get all mine up and running, but I can't seem to find the time.

Wow. Superb. And here's me looking for an a1200 for 12 months with no luck.

What emulator are you using on your tablet and what control do you use for it?

This is beautiful! Your machines are perfect and I am totally gobsmacked by your arcade machine

One question about it though: I saw your YouTube video about it but noticed that you showed none of the vertical games on your setup. How are they handled? I don't think your monitor is rotatable, or that you'd want to rotate it every time you play a vert game!

Great work!

Vert games run perfect. They would just fit to screen instead of rotating monitor. I say this as this is the way they run for me on my jamma jpac mortal Kombat 2 arcade cab fitted with a wells gardner larger arcade monitor I have.

Yeah but the scanlines would be wrong, vert games have vertical scanlines. I just wonder how it would look, I want to build a machine like this but I dread the thought of having to rotate the monitor so much, that I am thinking of eventually making two machines, one vert, one horizontal.

Haha... its certainly not the theft element I associate with... more the urge and inability to resist obtaining items that I don't actually really need, for example six A500's is probably five more than I actually need
