No, I'm done with this guy.
 
He used it to insult my OS: "Die Dobbertin ROM-Box hat 7 Steckplätze, wobei 5 ROMs bereits eingesetzt sind, darunter auch Future OS von TFM. Diese Routinensammlung lässt sich aber ohne Probleme über die DIP-Switches und/oder durch das herausnehmen der ROM-Bausteine entfernen."
 
But he sold software which he has no rights to sell. The FutureOS there is Marabus personal version, so he breaks the law. But we talk about Kangaroo, so probably nobody is surprised.

Hm, interesting issue here. What license if FOS under, anyway? You could always report it to eBay...

I have put a bid on it for you, will you send me a pm with your maximum bid please.

@everyone else, please do not bid on this so Gryzor can get it at a reasonable price, Thanks.

Hey mate, thanks so much :)

However, if someone is crazy about it go ahead, I'm not going to bid very high. I just like the game quite a bit and would like to have it as a sort of a curio for my collection. But if someone has childhood memories... oh well.

On the bright side, it's still cheap for 150 games and the fun you'll get from them :)

For those of you with more money than sense, Kangaroo is still selling:

http://www.ebay.de/itm/Ultra-Rare-Dobbertin-HD20-Festplatte-Schneider-Amstrad-CPC-Rechnung-Disk-/300839786811  (€450 starting price)
Rarest Thing on Earh: Amstrad CPC 6128plus + Monitor Airbrushed "Kangaroo"  |
Rarest Thing on Earh: Amstrad CPC 6128plus + Monitor Airbrushed "Kangaroo"  | (starting price... a mere €790)

Got a few other interesting bits for sale including a Dobbertin RAM drive which seems to be going for a pretty penny (and about 50 minutes left..):
Dobbertin RAM-Drive 256 KB Speichererweiterung inkl. RDOS + X-DDOS #420 | eBay

Seems to have a few other ROMS and bits in his listings:

I'm quite pleased as I finally have a real copy of Prehistorik 2 (from Kangaroo) which I've been looking out for like 10 years now so thanks for the initial link  :) :) :)

507 Euros for a half-filled old Dobbertin RAM expansion???
 
Who is that feck*** insane to pay that price?
 
I have the same one at home, but with the double RAM, guess I'm a rich man.
 
Or maybe the seller is just haveing a ghost-buyer to push prices??

€507? You got to be kidding me, there's something fishy here...

@TFM: we were posting at the same time. Definitely something going on with those auctions...

Nice, but he doesn't state the condition the machines are actually in. They could be mint, or they could even be NOS, but they could also have been well used and just put back to their boxes...?

Books look nice with no visible creasing and the keys on the 6128 don't appear to be yellowing. I think it could be worth a snipe :)

I would expect them to be used.
It is a good sign that he still has the box after all these years and he does say that they work, unlike some other auctions.

Yeah, but still, it's too bad (and very strange) that he doesn't have photos of the machines themselves. Why would I want to look at it wrapped up?
