    Wish I could say. Is the A/V RCA style (i.e. for a TV)? The original cable that came with mine was cut and apparently used for some kind of nonstandard monitor.

    Edit: Aha, I see the pics now. It's missing some stuff, but it also has some stuff mine doesn't, like the controller seen in the first pic, and the stuff in the last pic (with the exception of the PC Card which should be useless without the correct software and GPS antenna system). I like how it's in nice shape cosmetically.

    Thanks for your reply, yes it is the original cable and everything works fine with it. I have listed the Car Marty on ebay; http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...=tab%3DSelling with the chance to make offers. Maybee so i can findout what it´s worth. I have bought a Marty System instead, its a "bit" more beautifull ^_^

    PS is your Avatar from System Shock 2 ? Great game ! (x_O)

    Yeah, it's from a pre-release picture of the game.

    A note on the auction: That might be a good price. The last pic shows a game by Origin starting up, I take it that's not included - right? Read through the auction and didn't notice anything about it.

    auf den Bildern könnt ihr einmal ein bereits geladenes Towns OS Betriebssystem sehen und auf dem anderen bootet gerade Ultima Underwold
    __________________________
    one is Towns OS
    two is Ultima Underworld booting

    Both CDs are not included ! ^_^

    Just to show that it works still correctly with both, programms & games.

    Sorry, I forgot to mention "skimmed through"

    I can pick out occasional words, and that sometimes tricks me into thinking I understand what has been written

    So the answer - nope, just studied German a little bit years and years ago, long before high school. And obviously I'm tired since I missed the bit about the game.

    On the interests section - I wrote that some years ago. I think that the consoles are best, when all is said and done, but there are a few actual gems for the home computers not found elsewhere. If you were looking for info on what they are, feel free to ask any time

    Final note - again, the final price for the auction seems reasonable, maybe slightly high. I would be surprised if you don't get some offers soon.

    Cool, i am searching for infos (in english) about x68k computers but i only found nfg games and David´s page, thats all :-(

    FM Towns sites will be also very nice, msx is no probleme cause i can ask in msx.org forums.

    @Auction, buy now is just something to have a clue what i expect, if i make 200 buy it now & price offer i get offers around 50 euros ^__^

    Understood on the BIN. I would be fairly ashamed to submit a Best Offer of 1/4 the BIN value unless it was extremely overpriced.

    I suppose I will have some impressions of the various X68000 games once I pay to get my Pro shipped from Japan - of course all the games are emulated, so you can "try before you buy"

    Cool, i recieved me Expert 3 weeks ago and am still waiting for keyboard & mouse (A few games do not start without it...) i also cant await my vga adapter to play on my LCD screen. At the moment i use my FM Towns UX with its 9" multysynch screen, thats a little too small.

    I would kill for a mint copy of nemesis 90 Kai but the yahoo ones are way to overpriced.

    Do you have a icq number, i am not sooo often @ dp and people with a working x68k are quite rare these days.

    Salu -Daniel

    AIM actually, EdOscuro.

    You can also find us all on EFnet IRC - #shmups and #vbender is where I usually go.

    Also, I would've loved to have that FM Towns UX, although right now I can't justify it because I can use large TVs with the Car Marty and can play most any game I was interested in.
