Re: You've Got Grail

I remember Mo telling me he paid £600 each for several SF2 pcbs close to release and £400 for boots. According to the Bank of England inflation calculator £600 in 1991 is £1161 in 2016 money.

Re: Voltage Converter / Step Down Transformer advice

$0.02 Airlink are still they way to go for a prebuilt affair in a case. Or you could go for the Cools approved internal stepdown method which would be cheaper. Two from one stepdown is no problem. I doubt you will get anywhere near the advertised peak wattage on any of those cabs and I'm sure you ca...

Re: Super Nintenbros!

Summer holidays start on Friday. Got myself a WiiU to celebrate. Got it sitting waiting til I walk out of school. Can't wait.

Got Mario Kart 8, Windwaker HD, Hyrule Warriors, Yoshi's Wooly World, Shovel Knight, Mario Maker, New Super Mario Bros U, just need to decide what to play first.

Re: Emergency board repairs

Yes, it could easily be the problem. That first screen is really common as a hang screen when the voltage is off. Normally too low but DON'T JUST BLINDLY TURN IT UP. You really can't get away with not owning a multimeter in this hobby. A cheap made in China job off ebay would be totally fine and it'...

Re: Have I won the lottery? - No

Slug 5 is worth about double I'd say, maybe a bit more. Slug 4 kits are super easy to come across, you can pick them up NOS from ebay.
