If you can do without Burning Rubber, Parados carts are available from Ebay, I bought one last year and it works fine.

The only thing about ParaDOS is some of the older cracked games cause problems. I know some older cracks of Techno Cop and Midnight Resistance failed to load under ParaDOS, but worked fine under AMSDOS.

It's a case of your mileage may vary.

You can buy a C4CPC and upload the OS rom on your SD card, it works perfectly.

I'll bear that in mind when i get round to getting a plus - question would this work with a 464+ as well?

Yep. It was built with the GX4000 in mind to be able to play games which weren't specifically written for that. Given that the GX only has 64k, so it'll run perfectly on a 464+ too.

(You should check the GX4000 converted games list, there's a whopper of a selection for it, also work well on the pluses)

This is not an item for sale, but a news item. Since tons of people complain about PayPal, this may be of interest:

Yeah, that was rather out of the blue. I wouldn't hold my breath about eBay losing much sleep over fora and FB though, it's much huger than you and I see in our little world...

Not the smartest move by Ebay at all. I've never had an ounce of trouble with paypal. If anything, it would just discourage me from using fleabay.

It's sellers that mostly have issues with Paypal, I think. As a buyer I've never had an issue, except with their fees perhaps.


But "Adyen"? Who has ever heard of them? Strangely on their site there's only a "create test account", can't even try it...

What's the bets that Adyen is a startup fully funded by ebay?

As far as losing customers is concerned, ebays policies, support and customer relations depts are looking after that bit. It has become so buggy and unusable that I only use ebay for "emergencies" now.

Adyen is a company that opened doors in 2006 and has physical presence in a dozen or so countries :D


But you're right about the rest, concerning eBay. It used to be a pleasant experience, now it's a wild west where you have to constantly look over your shoulder...

Well to be fair, almost anywhere that handles transactions of some sorts have fees, banks, etc.
Sellers have issue with paypal because they can't fleece people like they used to be able to. My heart bleeds for them.

Not always true. You can google about Paypal horror stories - yes, it does protect customers, but it often goes overboard.


Somewhat related: these days I'm dealing with a seller who used ebay's Global Shipping Program. He's got proof he did send the item (and I believe him), however after it was delivered to eBay's depot it... disappeared. For weeks now eBay is trying to locate who the employee who signed for it (we've got a name) is! Of course I can ask and be rightly refunded for it, but the seller seems like he's left out to dry by eBay's partner, while its other partner takes his money and gives it back to me.

Though I would spare a few Femto-seconds of sympathy for the seller. He chose to use GSP and now has to live with that choice.

"What? £25 for a 464 when you can run it for free using an emulator?"

Regarding the diagnostic cart for sale on Ebay. The bids jumped from £11 to £111 without any other bids gradually leading up to that rather large price. I am relatively new to Ebay (using it for about 6 months) but to me that looked odd.


Am I missing something?
