Just collected my stash of Japanese Saturn and MegaCD collection 22 games for less than $100 including freight.

Here is my setup, Sega only :-)



The Mega Drive / Mega CD combo is hooked up at the TV in the DC demopod at the right side of the screen.

Last week, I bought this one on a local fleemarket, don't know if they were sold in Australia as well and if anyone can remember those:



Look at the box ... it's so 70's :-) .

Yup, it's in pretty good shape. Only the box is written on it.
Tested it ( needs 6 x 1.5V C batteries ) and worked flawless.

From what I've seen, those consoles were made in 1977, which is a fantastic year -the one I was born into ;-) .

The frontend I will likely end up using is Maximus Arcade. 30 day trial and then you need to purchase it and it's still very manual and tedious to get going. But I got it going so it was worth investing the time. I didn't get far with Hyperspin unfortunately despite spending some time studying documentations.

Using just Mame and Mess for pretty much everything does make life a lot easier. But for consoles emulators like Fusion or BSNES are still the way to go.

I'll check out MALA. The trial version of Maximus is working well so far. At the moment I configures BSNES, Fusion, Mame and Mess with it.

I'm considering buying an original Mega Drive 2 that has been in storage for years. Should I do it... shouldn't I do it... hmm tempting.

Was a brand new old stock, sealed box!

But I have a machine and a purpose for this cpu indeed, an interesting piece of cpu history and I believe its the final overdrive cpu intel made.

Now what to do with the obselete Pentium pro 200 cpu, sell it for for gold scrap to help justify the overdrive purchase or hang on to it for nostalga/collector purposes, hmmm.

Keep it as either a spare or make it into an oversized keyring, now have you got a dual processor machine? or just a single?

I'll probably keep it, it'll be worth more as a collectors item in the future im sure.

I posted the mainboard a page or two back, its a dual CPU board which would have no benefit for me running dos/win98.
