Got Donkey Kong Returns for 3DS at my local used shop and not a buy but a nice find rummaging through my attic: Maniac Mansion manual and Nuke protection codes + Dungeon Master manual.

Weird 72 pin 32Mb simms. They look like they were pulled from a server but have a configuration I've never seen before. 10+2 chips per side.



They fit and are recognised by my CS MKII
Not sure what speed they are. Some chips have a 6 suffix & some 7 (60/70ns?). Will do some testing.

I have 10 of these

Figured it out:
HM5117400AS6 x 16 @ 60ns = 128Mb
HM514100CS7 x 8 @ 70ns = 32Mb (i.e. parity)

Atari 2600 Jr. boxed!
With a 32-in-1 cart.

I've always wanted one, ever since I was younger, but could never really justify getting it, since it's video output was shit, the actual graphics were equally shit, and more importantly, I'd never play it.

But I wanted a real Atari CX40 joystick, and it had the cart I wanted too, so...


Also!

Big bunch of loose Amiga floppies!
Now I have loads of doubles.

Anyone wanna trade?
(Maybe I should make a thread)

I pre-ordered a MNT ZZ9000 (Batch 2) for my A4000T to replace the Cybervision 64/3d + Scandoubler I have in it currently. Hopefully USB functionality won't be too far off so it can replace the X-Surf 100/RapidRoadUSB as well.

Haynes Driving Games Manual

Picked this up yesterday
https://www.amazon.com/Driving-Games.../dp/1844255263 (from a "shop" not from Amazon)



Was meant to be shopping for the wife's birthday but couldn't resist it.

Lots of retro driving games goodies inside.

Did a very quick video on it.

Just ordered sockets and RAM chips to populate the empty RAM slots on my A500 Re 6a motherboard. Both orders from China. Sockets will arrive between 22/9 - 30/10. RAM Chips will arrive 3/10 - 6/11.

I have a 512K trapdoor expansion where I can pinch the RAM chips from, if the RAM order arrives much later than the sockets.

Jimmy White's Whirlwind Snooker, boxed complete for the Amiga.

I've always loved the huge manual, and second history manual too!

And Powermonger for the Atari ST.

Is there anything like QuickShot QS-128F with USB??

I loved that joystick on Amiga, but I wish I can use it with PC too.

Maybe this?

https://restore-store.de/home/58-usb...ldsinchai.html

Found mentioned in this thread on USB adapters: http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=92181

I don't know if an adapter will work with this joystick though. If I read up on it, it sounds like a complicated beasty which had built-in support for switching to different pin layouts.

That was I was wondering if USB one exists.

I used to own maverick iirc, and loved that with Amiga. I will probably still get one for Amiga, but mostly I play on PC, due to room setup.

Thanks!

I had no idea about this game until you posted, but have been playing it all day, thank you -- it's immense!

The pixel art style is interesting (and reminds me in places of Beneath a Steel Sky) but the gameplay is so finely tuned. It's really well crafted and the level design is solid. I think anybody who likes Castlevania, or even Rick Dangerous, will find a lot to like here. I've had to stop playing it because my controller ran out of juice

I own the Sinchai Usb-adapter. In Joystick Mode A of the QS-128F (there is a switch A-D) there's a single firebutton and in Mode D you can use Button 1 and Button 2. The 128F works really fine with it!

The retrobit usb adapter works well too but only supports a single fire button - no matter which Joystick.
