That would be ace, but probably impractical. I don't think you can run RF consoles through a projector! I suppose it could be linked to a f**k off big CRT or LCD TV though...

Some kind of SCART lead.
Or you could try it via a VCR then have the VCR wired up to the projector

MAKE IT SO!!

Or better still have ET running on it to censored people off

My ticket turned up today, thanks!

I've got my T-Shirt ready too, so just got to sort through all my stuff to see if there's anything I've got to sell.

Has my ticket been sent? Haven't got it yet...

Oh, and Micro Machines 2, yes! Good stuff, how about Power Stone 2 as well?

YES!

Ignore all this talk of Warlords, a nice little MM96 tournament is what i'm talking about! I might even design my own Retro Rewind track for it and bring along the cart!

Micro Machines - yay!
I am compiling a list of these recommendations and will make sure I/or someone brings the games.
Nearly all the tickets sent out (bar a few who I have PMd regarding addresses). Wife sent them out as I'm still ill and just been drinking water only for the last 24hrs. :(
