Post by wgoodf »

this is on ebay just now.
is it a 64 system only or would it work on a 32?

The controller should work, OS9 won't.

Worth going for even if you then wish you had a D64 :)

and so the addiction continues!

here is hoping this auction goes for a somewhat more reasonable amount and not the £86 that the recent cumma drive went for.

Well yes, 86 quid does seem a tad ridiculous. If that was the one with the Delta cart, they do seem to be particularly rare, though.

Anyway, g'wan, you know you want 64K (for a start you'll need it to run my game when it's finally done - updated demo disk image on Monday assuming it all checks out ;) ).

A-ha-ha ;)

I think I'd find it hard to class anything I have as "spare", sadly...
