Pool of Radiance was missing the code wheel though.

Try replacementdocs.com. They had all the manuals and extras for the entire series. I loved those games on my C64.

Now I know why I don't buy G&W off ebay and rely on finding them in the wild

Lucky for me I have 4 of those units that are up there for auction, boxed too. I'll watch these to see what they go for out of interest.

Acer ISA/RISER B.D.
93337-1 48.41302.001



Fresh from the original plastic/packaging, never seen such old PCB in such mint condition.

What would use this?

I believe they were used in desktop-style cases so cards could be installed horizontally. I've seen them in various PCs over the years; Compaq and HP in particular.

Old LPX style systems. Unlike AT or ATX it wasn't really standardized very rigidly so different manufacturers implemented it slightly differently.
Mainly used by OEM's like DEC, HP, Acer etc.
They had a riser card in the middle of the motherboard for the ISA slots and the ISA cards were installed parallel to the motherboard.

That card will probably only work with a specific manufacturer's motherboards. You generally couldn't swap them between brands (often the connecters were physically different).

You can find heaps of old 486/Pentium LPX motherboards on Ebay but they usually don't come with the riser card so you can't install anything into them :/ Luckily LPX boards usually have integrated video and IDE so you could still use them if you wanted to but they won't fit into a normal AT/ATX case.

Out of interest I've also seen standard AT motherboards in similar low profile cases, that use the same type of riser card (but with a standard ISA connector at the base).

I was at a flea market last weekend when I spotted this lot in a lonely looking box. I couldn't believe my luck when I asked the guy how much: $5!

For reference, we have: 11 games (9 with boxes and manuals, 2 loose) and an NES 101 (aka the Top Loader).

The NES didn't come with cables (I already had some) but it did come with a cool dogbone controller and a third party SNES controller. The plastic on the dogbone is a little yellowed but I think it will clean up nicely. Plus I'd like to try my hand at a batch of Retrobright to restore some of its original majesty

Tell me about it!

I picked up a top loader last year from the FS forums for ~$70 -- which is still pretty reasonable when you look at eBay. I bought that one as a gift; this one I think I'll keep. I love that they have no lockout chip. I just wish they also ran at 60Hz and had composite out. Did I mention it works like a champ?

I haven't tested all the games but I haven't yet met the NES cart I couldn't get working -- so I'm not worried. I was stoked to see Shadowgate in there. It's one of my alltime favourite games. Looking forward to Smash TV and Ninja Gaiden 2 also
