Im working hard to try to make money, to buy a bigger house, so I can actually setup and use my 1987 Mitsubishi Megaview 37" CRT monitor for gaming :roll:

Im glad someone actually has the room for these things @terriblefire .

You must post a photo when the man cave is setup.

@terriblefire im sure I saw an outrun machine in Skegness back in the day that used an MX-5 for the driving controls and then the biggest CRT I've ever seen. At least I think it was Outrun.
This maybe?

@lilwashu yes I think you're right.
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

I actually have room for that... but i'd have to dismantle and reassemble the car to get it through the basement door.

That's a nice list of machines/boards.

Do you have any interest in the vector based machines, such as Asteroids, Gravitar, Battle Zone and Star Wars?
Intro retro computers since before they were retro...
ZX81->Spectrum->Memotech MTX->Sinclair QL->520STM->BBC Micro->TT030->PCs & Sun Workstations.
Added code to the MiNT kernel (still there the last time I checked) + put together MiNTOS.
Collection now with added Macs, Amigas, Suns and Acorns.

Cool. I grew up near Blackpool and the was a time in the mid 90s the arcades threw out all their video arcade machines and switched to fruit machines. You could have the old cabs for under £50 if you took them away. So I did. 10 years ago you couldn't move in my house because of arcade machines and parts. But I was "encouraged" to sell lots when my now ex-girlfriend moved in. Now I'm down to just two. Escape From The Planet of the Robot Monsters. It's a great looking 1950s Flash Gordon styled dedicated cab and interesting design with two 680x0s and Hall effect analog joysticks.
