Retro News & Chat / Re: RetroCollect VIDEO GAME MARKET 3 Doncaster
« on: March 06, 2016, 00:26:02 AM »
Apart from being greeted by a huge queue it didn't take too long to get into the hall, I found the market to be decent, with prices ranging from cheap to expensive. Pretty much every system could be found from Coleco to PS2. I bought quite a few decently priced NES carts.

I always find these events interesting with the age of the person usually determining what people are looking for. It was interesting to see how DC, Gamecube and PS2 are firmly in the Retro world and how the pricing for these are beginning to rise.

I found as long as you bought multiple items traders were happy to haggle on price. Prices and condition would differ widely. The trick is to have an idea what you want and what condition your happy to get, haggle but be prepared to walk away from a deal.

I could spend all day in one of these events but my 4 year old daughter was in decent spirits and let me wander around for just over 2 hours.

Thanks, I will gamble it with my Daughter. I'm a sucker for NES and MD Carts at the moment, Id better update my lists so I don't buy any duplicates.

It looks great and just needs some music. Anyone got the GX4000/CPC+ Flashcart?

Watch out for damaging the power switch on the right hand side which is easily done. I didn't need to solder either.

The Master System 2 is Rf only, it can be modded to produce RGB, Svhs and composite. Why Sega removed RGB/Composite apart than to save money is a mystery, a bit like the nerfed Av on Pal N64's

The versions I've played like the MS, Megadrive and Amiga are all perfectly playable, The PS2/XB/GC versions are just the emulated arcade version. The C64 version looked surprising good in that video, But i'm with Dekay and its best played on the original machine with a trackball.

Looks legit, I want to see if it powers up. Strange that no dev units are floating around from this time too, but the end of the Sony/Nintendo deal would of probably assigned most the the development to the bin.

I expect it will be on eBay soon, It's best destination would be a gaming museum.

Best place to buy a cab in the UK is from a Arcade forum like UKVac or Jamma Plus. Lots of advice too and honest descriptions of the Arcade Cabinet. The Picade is a Kickstarter Bartop from Pimoroni.



Whenever I replace a laptop screen for work they get shipped in these storage boxes - Decent protection for PCBS.

Alex has an unbelievable Nintendo arcade collection. If you was at Play Expo a few years ago he had a row of Ninty cabs running DK, DK2 and Popeye (I think).

I've got a few arcade boards, but like Zapiy said it's an expensive business to get into and their fragile as hell. The MVS carts are bullit proof though and I have about 12 original plus a 161-1 multicart. I play them in a four slot MVS cab.

On the PCB side I have an original Double Dragon, Cps2 Super Street Fighter, some bootlegs like Tetris, SnowBros, Euroleague and some multi game Jamma boards.

The other option is get a Jamma cab and a Jpac and connect up a Mame PC. Jamma cabs are Mame ready, no need to mod or rip out Looms or Crts. Just add a Jac from https://www.ultimarc.com/jpac.html and your ready to go. Get a front end like Mala or Hyperspin and you can boot into a menu screen ready to play your favourite games...
