@UnknownK

Dont you have something called 'swap meets' in the US? I always assumed these were your equivalent of boot fairs.

Thumbs up Alien Triology on PS1

Wow, remember that one from being amongst my 1st games played on waht was my new PSX via the Sony demo disk-seems quite primitive compared to the Alien vs Predator PC titles later on, but for the time I thought it day a great job of conveying the Aliens atmosphere.

Yes there are swap meets held but nothing local that I recall. Some people go to fleamarkets but most of the stuff sold there is old clothes, household goods, and cheap electronics made in china plus the ocasional atari 2600 cart if you look hard enough. Then again I havn't gone in a few years to look.

Ok, lemme see what I got the last days

- A3000 Mainboard
- Final Cartridge III for C64
- Elsa Microlink 56k (ok, not Retro but it will work as Fax/Answering Machine on an Amiga )
- CD32 in mint Condition with 6 Games and HoneyBee Pad
- Plus/4 with PSU
- some Amiga games (Dragons Breath, K240, Elvira, Slam Tilt -> boxed with manual, mint condition, Tearaway Thomas -> Disk Corrupt and about 20 Original Games without box or manual, not tested yet !)
- Philips 8833-II Monitor (working but in bad condition, needs some cleaning)

There are about two boxes more that I got, but I had no time to check it out yet

We bought this at auction, but the seller has dissapeared off the planet. Can you possibly try dumping it even though it is corrupt?

We may get lucky.

Thanks!

I got a VIC-20. I found it in a hencoop ! Unfortunately and although it powers up, I get a black screen but it may be a problem with the modulator...

One was given by a friend who didnt want it anymore and just by chance I had already purchased one the day before. Dont worry the Amiga 600 will be going to a fellow retrofreak. :-O

New York is a treasure trove.
It's especially good when the old people pack up and move to Florida.
They get rid of their kid's abandoned toys.

A hen coop?

You have to tell us more. Have you cleared it of droppings?

Yesterday I got..

1 x (limited edition) seethrough orange N64 with two controllers plus the Ram Upgrade, Perfect Dark, 1080 Snowboarding, Top Gear Rally and Zelda. all for 40. It was a little high but everything is fully boxed and in absolute MINT condition - I was only really interested in the Ram Upgrade as I can now play my Donkey Kong 64 game that I got last week
