Got 2 TurboGrafx16 console, with like 3-4-5 games or so.

I really have no use for it - I have no time to pay my atari 26/50/7800's, or the odyssey2, much less the PS2/xbox and 360 we have in the house!!! Not to mention the DreamCast with like a billion copies games...

Also got a Doctor GB gameboy copier (original GB and color) with flash card. Runs on 4 x AA, and has a built-in floppy drive to load/save, and parallel port to link to PC.


Offers via PM ?

Lemme know if ya want some of the 3.5" DS/DD floppies, too. if ya buy the
TG16, we can toss those in the same box.

OK, but remember, I have a history of backing out of deals! (Like the time Terry offered to give me a composite monitor for just shipping cost, but then someone offered me a Neo-Geo MVS cab on CraigsList for $50, so then I was short on cash...)

That's OK. It's not like someone is beating down my door to buy it!!

i love TG16's... i've still got my original first-generation sega genesis that i still play to this day. just last night i stuck my street fighter 2 special champ edition cartidge in and played it to the end :)

best system ever was the NES... too bad 95% of the games were horrible. some are really great though. most of the SMB series rocks, then you've got CONTRA! tons of other gems on the NES too.. mike tyson's punch out, etc.

and possibly the best game ever made, MARBLE MADNESS!!!! :D

I'm not saying you do, obviously, but I'm still stunned at the number of people that think that Marble Madness was an original NES game. The best port was probably for the Amiga, but most home ports are solid, including the NES one.

yeah i know. it first came out as an arcade machine. you ever play marble madness with MAME? you can hook up an old trackball mouse and play like the original :biggrin:

you ever play the old PC port? it's got CGA graphics, but other than that it's excellent. it's meant for 4.77 MHz 8088/8086's and of course like most games that old, there is no speed throttling.

i played it on my 286 with turbo off (makes it 5 MHz) and it was still impossible. the timer on the game went from 60 to 0 in about 3 seconds :/

i'll try it on my 8088 when i get my floppy controller. lol speaking of which i see the mail truck coming down the street as i'm typing this. hopefully it's here :)

Edit: YES! here it is :) thanks again terry yager! looks to be in good shape, i'll go try it out.

Yeah, I've played it in the arcade and have it on my MAME arcade cabinet with trackball at home. It's the only way to play it. Some people like using a mouse, but I sure don't...

I never really liked the NES port of Marble Madness. While a great port, the control scheme just never felt right...

It's good, but rather tricky with keyboard!
