Lets see...

- Sony PSP (UP chip)
- Sony PSP
- Sony slim PS2 (Matrix Infinity chip)
- Sony PS2
- Sony PSOne (Swapdisc)
- Sony PSX (Forget which chip it has)
- Sega Dreamcast (x2)
- Sega Megadrive 2
- Microsoft Xbox (going to soft mod soon)
- Nintendo Gamecube
- Nintendo GBA
- Nintendo GB (original B/W version)
- Nintendo 64 (x3 + Mr. Backup + CD64)
- Nintendo SNES
- Commodore Amiga A500 (KS1.2)
- Commodore Amiga A500 (KS1.3 x2)
- Commodore Amiga A500 Plus
- Commodore Amiga A600
- Commodore Amiga A1200 (x2)
- Commodore Amiga A4000/40
- Commodore CD32
- Atari 2600 woody!
- Atari STFM

I think that's the lot for my collection. I might have missed out something.

Does a MAME cabinet count? Or is that still a PC.

You may notice that I don't have any 8-bit systems any longer. This is due to emulation being so good now for the earlier systems and the amount of cables and hardware you need to get most of the older systems to run.

I didn't know you had an Atari ST, Demon. What is your opinion of it compared to the Amiga?

Amiga 1000 in original box, that's quite a cool item to have in your collection LowercaseE.

Once I get the Amiga models page started on the main site, would it be possible to take some pictures of the A1000 and the box for the site? As I've only ever managed to find generic A1000 images from the original adverts so far that every site I come across seems to also be using. Would be great to have some original detailed pictures of the system from the front, back etc...


I really want to get a Dreamcast sometime as well.

The Dreamcast is a great system. Even though it lacks many RPGs it's still one of my favourite consoles as the majority of games released have great gameplay. If you do decide to get one, find a pre October 2000 system as they let you run CD-R based games without needing to do anything to the system.

I didn't know you had an Atari ST, Demon. What is your opinion of it compared to the Amiga?Good question. AT the time, I never had an Atari. A friend of mine had an ST (when I had an Amiga), and as we mainly played on it, I found that Amiga had far superior graphics, but that's no news. A friend here at work, knowing I collected consoles and computers, gave me his Atari 1040ST a year ago, and from that day on, I have it. I haven't fired it up yet though :p

And as for your MAME cabinet, you can count it double ;-) but does yours also run?? I thought I heard you're getting a new monitor aso.

Teho
19th January 2007, 13:51
My list isn't as long as you guys', due to me not wanting to buy that much as I have no room at all. So here goes:

Amiga 500
Amiga 600
Amiga 600HD
Commodore 64 (2)
Commodore 64 DTV (you know, that 30-in-one joystick thing)
Commodore 128
Playstation 2 (2 of them, one slim and one old model. But old one has a busted lens)

I wanted to count a Sharp MZ-700 computer system too, but I don't actually have it yet. We had it when I was a kid, and for all I know it might be binned by now. One of these days I'm going to have a rummage through my mom's attic to see if I can find it.

And as for your MAME cabinet, you can count it double ;-) but does yours also run?? I thought I heard you're getting a new monitor aso.

Yes, I want to replace the old monitor with a new 19" (or bigger) LCD and then build a new smaller cabinet (depth wise) to house it all.

It does work at the moment though as I currently still have the old monitor, but it's disassembled as far as being a cabinet at the moment. The PC, Slikstik control board and current 21" monitor get hooked up together when I want to use it. So you could say, it's the guts of a MAME cabinet without the actual cabinet at the moment. :lol:

Playstation 2 (2 of them, one slim and one old model. But old one has a busted lens)


Same here - the old one showed Disk Read Error for everything, so I got a new one. However I found a guide online that showed how to fiddle with the laser a bit and got it working again so my doorstop PS2 is working again.

Harrison
19th January 2007, 16:03
That is a common problem with the older "brick" PS2. Although I have the original 30003 model and it still (touch wood) works perfectly.

And my slim PS2 has the voltage mod fitted to help protect its lens from burnout, which was a common problem on the slimline model when running modchips and DVD-Rs.

BTW, did you know that many people think that running CD-R and DVD-R discs on a console drive reduces the drives life? I haven't personally seen any evidence to support this as I have an original PSX from 1996 that is modded and has always used CD-Rs and still works perfectly. What do you think of this belief?

Some good pictures there Alex, shame the A1200 keyboard in the pictures is so yellow. I'm so glad Commodore changed the keyboard layout after the A1000, that is one thing I never liked about that system.

AlexJ
19th January 2007, 16:46
Never mind the keys, look at the lettering! QWERTZ?

Anyway, the A1200 isn't so important as most of us have one, and could take photos if needed.

Harrison
19th January 2007, 16:50
Oh yeah, never noticed that before. I'm sure the real system I've used in the past wasn't like that. There is also a smaller Y and Z printed on both keys too. Wonder if it's due to another language keymap or something? :unsure:

Might be a German layout. They were very popular over there.

EDIT: Yep, German keyboards swap the Y and Z - http://www.sussex.ac.uk/its/facilities/pc/keyboards/german.gif

The german keyboards also have the letters , and . And for characters like !,},:,/... they also have different combinations. That's why we here use QWERTZ keyboards, which are set to swiss/french and they exactly match the keys with the characters.

I bought my barebone together with a keyboard from Germany, and forgot that they have slightly different keyboards. But the french are worse, with their ASERTY keyboards.

Here's a page, with some PS2 laser repair tutorial: http://cyber-mag.com/station/laserPS2.htm

Yep, tried that with my first PS2 unit. The two I have now are my second and third. I got that DRE with my first one, a launch model, and followed one of those voltage adjusting FAQs. I actually got it working properly for a bit, then it started happening again. During my second attempt to adjust it I set it too high and fried it. So threw that one away long ago.

Never even attempted it when the second one started acting up. I could probably fix it, but the slick slimline model had come out a while ago and I had money to burn. ;)

I also had several PS2 consoles, bought the first one without chip, then modded it with a Neo 2.2 chip. Second one was a prechipped with a Sniper modchip. The tray of that one made me scratches onto my disks, and they didn't work anymore. Then I placed in some protection mats, and it was fine, sold it then to my cousin. My 3rd PS2 was the one with the DMS3, which I had no problems with. Now the 4th with the MI chip is my slimline.

Harrison
22nd January 2007, 11:30
I've only had two PS2's and both still work perfectly. My first I bought on the ps2's UK launch and is the infamous 30003 model, although I've had no problems with it and it still works perfectly. It's never been chipped though. And my newer ps2 is the slimline one I bought pre-chipped with an MI chip.

22nd January 2007, 12:00
My PS2 has given a disc error once or twice, but it was on rented discs, so they weren't in the best of condition anyway.

Apart from the other, uh, battle scars it's worked flawlessly. And to think there was a time when it was my pride and joy, but now I care little for it - I wouldn't want it smashed or anything but I'm not too bothered about the scrapes and stuff now.

Well its actually at one of their properties that they rent out as a holiday home - I gave it to them when I got a PS3. Dad uses it for any kids that come over and get bored sitting in the Scottish highlands. On that he also has my Sega megadrive for any retro fans that want a blast. I think I'll buy him an A500 for the place too! :D
Hell, while I'm at it heres the link to the place - its quaint (substitute small) but everyone that goes there loves it! (Sorry about the blatant family advertising everyone)

Looking at that brings back memories of a dodgy console my aunt brought me from South Africa. Thinking about it i'm sure it was a NES clone and i only had one of those 100(?)-1 carts. :lol:would love to still have that - might be worth something :huh2:

I don't know if it's worth something? I guess not. I still have mine in its original box.

That Amstrad console did look quite cool. The redesigned CPC+ range did look good. However trying to redesign something that was already way out of date was never going to sell well. In fact, even though I had own a CPC464 as my first computer for years, but the time the CPC+ range was released I had already owned an ST and Amiga for years and hadn't even realised the CPC was still being sold.

Didn't the CPC+ range have slightly updated system specs? More sound channels and better graphics?

And it's always been a similar story when other hardware makers have trying to do a similar thing. Look at the Commodore 64 Games System as another similar example of a failing system, or the CD32. They never seem to learn that when you already have a successful home computer platform, cutting it down and re-releasing it as a limited console doesn't work.

The CPC464+ could display the 640 x 200 resolution in color, the non + only in monochrome. Soundchip was the same: General Instruments AY-3-8912.
