Not my kind of collection, as SirClive pointed out it's more like stock than a looked after and often played collection of video games...

The xbox, ps1, ps2, and gamecube in the photos might take offence at that statement. :) A couple of N64s there too, by the look of it.

But yeah, this photo in particular really shows it to be a collection/stock supply without much practical purpose for day to day enjoyment.

I disagree, I don't see mulitple copies of the same game. I read about this guy befor, he just has OCD for collecting video games. Obviously theres no chance he's going to be able to play them all but I guess thats up to him. I think it's pretty cool what he's put together there, it's only similer to people with vast vinyl collections.

That would make a good addition to your sega family ?

Would it be ok to ask you if you could recommend me some good places to go for sega sms/SG gear?

pm if possible.
only just seen your post..

I actually do have one of those JP card holders the same as that. I'd like to find one in it's original packaging as I doubt it came like that on it's own, allthough Ive never seen on attached to a piece of card or anything :?:

I love collecting all the 'harware,peripherals and nick knacks', I may put together a Web page of photographs showing each item as I have owned http://www.segacollect.com for a wile but havnt had time to do what I wanted with it properly :(

True, the other point being with many things not related to booze or fags... how can they prove you never took it out there with you to begin with? ;)

Don't really have a retro collection bar my Saturn which I don't have a picture of just yet.

Here's my Xbox doing what it does best, which I guess counts as it's my little retro museum:

C=Style: do you run emulators from disc or from HDD?

If it's HDD, what's the best way to go about it?

I have 2 Xbox's - 1 chipped (executor 2.1 IIRC) and 1 un-chipped.

I'd like to have one of them full of emulators (well, as much as I can fit on).

Heh, same here. It really is an Xbox, where X = a whole bunch of old systems.

Are you using the stock xbox HDD, or did you swap for a bigger one? have you put anything at all on the HDD so far, such as a launcher like evoX, unleashX, or media centre?

Yeah I run them of the HDD. The are the same as any PC IDE HDD and they're really cheap now, a 320gb one should set you back no more than around £40 on ebay etc.

It's a simple case of unplugging the old one and inserting the new. With an Xecutor 2 it would be best to download a install disk, like Slayers or AID. That would get you on your feet (installing the dash etc) so you can start to FTP files over to the HDD, thought you can just copy files direct from disk to HDD too if you wanted.
