WTB Dragon and game carts

A forum for members to offer for sale any Dragon related items to other members. DO NOT POST LINKS TO AUCTIONS. I will use this forum in the future to offer all my spare games to members of this site before they go on e-bay.

Well, it works fine with a borrowed TV via the composite out, so I need to sort out the NTSC -> VGA conversion

I sent the payment by Paypal, and was told:

"Funds received. Will ship this week. "

So, I'm guessing they haven't sold out...
Hi,

Do you have the email address that you contacted?

What was the final price for Tano and shipping (assuming you are in the UK!)?

Hi!

The email address is catalog@cadigital.com, and the price seems to remain 45$ for the computer plus 90$ shipping to Europe.

Just ask them, they are very nice people.

Cheers,
Rob

Out of curiosity, does the Tano Dragon come with any joysticks?

Also how do you run a machine intended for 110v if your mains electricity is 240v?

There are no joysticks in the Tano Dragon box (neither on the original Dragon machines, to be fair).

Regarding voltage, there are step-down transformers that convert 220v to 110v so you plug it to mains and the Tano Dragon to the transformer output.

Thanks for the info, Rob. :)

I didn't realise the original Dragon didn't come with controllers. But then Santa brought my Dragon. :lol:
