Re: How big is your collection

I focus mostly on...
  • Sega ( Dreamcast / Saturn / Genesis - Mega Drive ) 200
    PC-Engine / Turbo Grafx HU= 245 CD= 140
    SNK NEO GEO ( AES 33/ MVS 38/ CD 59)
    Atari Jaguar = 42
I do have NES, SNES but I don't treat it as a serious collection.

Using a device like this ...

Re: PC Engine advice please!

I still have a working Briefcase setup, but it is really slow to load anything, and for some reason despite being kept in a constant temperature in a dark cupboard, the CD-Rom unit has turned a really nasty yellow, sitting next to the White PC Engine it looks bad. Also I have the original PSU for i...
