    Went in my mum's loft, found some more of my brothers' and my old reto bits.
    Run your wife a nice hot bath, light some candles & pour some wine. Then you've at least 40 mins on the xbox plus a clean wife.

    Experts... x is an unknown quantity and spurt is a fast drip.

    The list so far including the miggy from the older thread is:-
    Amiga 500+ with A570 cd drive
    Amiga 500 not plus
    CDTV with commodore black floppy drive
    CD32 I swapped it for a set of fiesta pepper pot alloys back in the day.
    X2 commodore monitors
    Snes
    Nes
    Game gear (needs recapping by the looks of it)
    Commodore 64
    Oceanic floppy for 64
    Printer for 64.
    Lots of tape games for 64 (didnt find the data cassette and i think it probably has my copy of last ninja in it.)
    Playstation PSone
    Playstation PS2
    An Oscilloscope that powers on, Nobody seems to know where it came from though, possibly one of my dads treasures hes a hoarder.

    Quite looking forward to the dark nights now as I have lots to tinker with, clean up and hack .
    When they all work I'll probably box them up chuck them in my loft until the kids find them in another 30 years or so.

    Just think I could get all this and more in a retropi and that has HDMI output and fastloaders.

    Wish I'd kept my CD32, was definitely my favourite way to play Amiga games!

    Yup CD32 was awesome. Sadly was launched right before they died off.

    Wow what a haul! As Ganty said, half the fun will be seeing if you can get it working and the memories it'll being back

    The Game Gear brought back some good memories, loved that ‘little’ hand held. Even though the batteries only lasted about twenty minutes!

    The game gear is my wip at the minute, got no useable pic on the screen, apparently needs a re-cap, had and hour tonight, opening it up and removing the caps.
    Its got a anti tamper screw of sorts, its the same size as the outer from a bic pen with the ink removed from the middle it turns out.

    Those Game Gears absolutely ate batteries at an alarming rate.

    Yeah it was the fluorescent tube back light that ate them. I ran mine on rechargable batteries

    Theres some replacement screens for game gears, from what I've seen they look great but expensive.

    And that rubics clock was bull, I randomly got one side all pointing to 12 once, but the other side was a mess, never figured out any kind of method behind the piece of crap.
