Great thread this. First person to post an original Sega Master System + Light Phaser will win my instant respect and admiration. And jealousy... my folks gave my Sega away to charity after I left home, a fact I didn't discover for several years. Had a pretty nice game collection for it too...

After all these years I still call it a "See-ga" in my head, although I know it's supposed to be "Say-ga". Old habits and all that...

Was going through a box of books today and rediscovered some nostalgic goodness I've managed to hang onto for a long time.



Dos 6.22, Windows 3.11 and 95 manuals, SB16 manual, Manual for my old PC Chips 486 board which I still have.



Manuals for ACES collectors edition, Iron Helix, Syndicate, SimCity 2000, Wing Commander II. Besides ACES, all of them came bundled with a SB16.



Apple product guide (November 2000), Windows 95 + ME boxes, OS8 installation manual, Win 3.11/Win 95/Dos 6.22 certificates of authenticity. Picked up the Apple product guide from an Apple store back in the day.

It's Alive!!!!

All i did was get a new PSU & replace the hard drive, the latter is an adventure in itself.

I have wanted to buy one of these laptops since i saw this very same model new in store in 2000 for about $2500, so I am very happy right about now.

In the last few days I have done some hunting around in Akihabara here in Tokyo. And have managed to score myself.

1x Super Famicom systems in original packaging along with its, cables, 2x controllers each (bought two, one is for a friend)
- Super Mario World
- Contra III
- Super Mario Kart
- Crono Trigger (2x)
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Turtles in Time (2x)
- Mortal Kombat
- Super Street Fighter 2
- Legend of Zelda, Link to the past.

1x Sega DreamCast (original box and packaging)
- Soul Calibur (just now need to buy the latest sol cal 5 and I will have them ALLL

I Would love to find House of the Dead with the guns but no luck so far but i'm kinda out of money now after spending a month here along with buying many many other toys including a new Japan made Fender Telecaster I was always a Nintendo boi and didn't like much of the Sega stuff. But the Dreamcast blew me away and it was way way way ahead of its time. Such a shame it failed hard in the commercial sense.

Back home my brother is looking after the PAL SNES / N64 / Gameboys and all the games and accessories as kids. I need to get on to his back about making sure they are stored correctly and looked after. I've lost my Gamecube but I still have all my games / pads / etc and the Wii.

The old boy has our 1988 Space Invaders cocktail machine. he doesn't seem to care for it and its sitting in the shed. needs a lot of work which i have told him to NEVER get rid of it and one day i'll have room for it myself which i'll restore.

Kinda kicking myself that i have gotten rid of all my retro PC gaming stuff. Still got most of the games but yeah all the packaging and manuals have been diced I think. I knew the consoles were going to be worthy of looking after but with the PC side of things I always thought that they would always be backwards compatible. How wrong was I. And I Wish I knew what happened to the family's PC-XT and I remember as a kid we had an Atari something with Pong.

May I ask what sort of coin you parted with to get that gear you listed? I was in Akihabara for half a day back in June but I don't think I spent enough time there.

ummm. Not really sure. I'm going to have to sit down and work it all out. After the post I had purchased a whole lot more stuff and yeah I kinda lost track of how much I was spending. I'm fairly careless when it comes to money and 'budgets'

Maybe we can come to some sort of trade / deal

Got back the other day and managed to trade a cheapo Yamaha AV reciever for a near new condition 51cm Sony Trinition flatscreen CRT. Totally stoked on the trade as looking on gumtree it was very difficult to even find a decent CRT TV / monitor of any size that wasn't a complete POS.

It has a number of features over the standard A1000 such as - kickstart in ROM with built-in switcher between 4 different ROMs; onboard SCSI; up to 2MB of RAM directly on motherboard up from the A1000's 256KB; onboard FPU socket and A2000 CPU upgrade slot.

Unfortunately its missing a heap of chips, most of which are proprietary PAL or GAL chips. I managed to track down the original designer in Adelaide and called him up, he's not really in the business any more but pointed me to a German website, a1k.org who commissioned a whole new batch of the boards a few years ago. A kind fellow there managed to dump the chips and has sent me the files, so now I just gotta track down someone who can burn them for me and we're in business
So how's that working for you?

The phoenix board , was working great.
I managed to locate the codes for the missing GAL chips on the internet, bought some blank chips and a programmer and managed to restore most of the boards functionality.

I had the kickstart selector, 2MB Chipram, zorro slot and FPU working.
Unfortunately I could never get SCSI working, board wouldn't power up when the controller chip was installed.

The A1000's I tried to retrobright and it over-bleached them, and left with white specks/streaks all over them. I was planning to try to vinyl dye them or paint them but never got around to it.

I had some life changes so had to part with a lot of my old computer stuff. Sold the phoenix board to an american bloke and three A1000's on ebay to a bloke in WA for $30 plus shipping. The buyer made me jump through a few hoops which has turned me off ebay for selling stuff like this, I just wanted to be rid of it.

I've still got the A1200, A500, 1084S-D2 monitor plus various other bits and bobs... mice, power supply, disks, joysticks, and so on.
I tried to sell these locally but no bites so was thinking of putting on OCAU.

I do like to pull them out from time to time and fiddle with them but at the moment they'repacked up in a box taking up space.

Throw it on the for sale forum, at least you know that the sale is on your terms on OCAU. Im interested in your a1200 and maybe some other bits.
