#retrogames special controller checkup this weekend. Featuring this PS2 specific USB Densha de Go Shinkansen controller. The only one in the Series with LED Displays. Perfect party game when everyone is drunk already ;-)
#retrogames A fairly uncommon item here that I wanted for a long time: „Justifier“ Mega Drive Lightgun by Konami bundled with SegaCD game „Lethal Enforcers“. Game Box is almost perfect :-) cannot wait to try it now.

Got this Baby for free from a colleague at work. Retro beauty from 2004, 1.8Ghz single proc dual core PPC. 10.5 Leopard works fine. Just attempted a MorphOS install and for the first time, fans kicked in at full speed. Amazingly loud and powerful, good fun and Stunning kit this. So far, I am whitescreening with MorphOS. May play more with it soon.
Et voila 2TB on original softmodded XBox. Needs a SATA/IDE Adapter though. Mind you this is 19yr old hardware :-) you cannot go much beyond 2TB so these are now maxed out.
And it’s disassembled. Next up: deep inspection and capacitor inventory taking.
Digging deeper. This may be the most modern photography of a Pico mainboard on the Internet :-)
Also facing a sprite garbling issue. Likely needs replacement capacitors.
Got it opened without breaking the sticker
Seems like the problem is with the micro switch inside the pen. Getting the pen to open means removing a 30yr old sticker. Heatgun helps here.
