The Cartridge arrived at the weekend. It's real.

Bryce.



Nice little game. Is it any different on cartridge?

Haven't played it yet, but then again, I've never played the tape/disk version either :)

Nice item, but nothing more than a Megadrive and an PC in the same case.
Amstrad may have better to sell White MD clone as "GX500" instead. :D

yeah, but i remember dreaming a lot about it at the time!

Well, kyjena's auctions ended for the second time with no bids. It's a shame - I understand there are some beautiful items in there, but the asking prices for the lots (300+ euros, plus shipping) is just too much. Maybe if I didn't have anything, I'd buy a lot, but it's not so likely...

A bit off topic, but nonetheless an awesome (and expensive) piece of essential equipment for every vintage collector: WANG VS7150, VS7010, 3270 terminals - Diskpacks - Early 80s Computing - Props? |

Yep, now i see that an auction with a pack of lot of games at a BIG price is not the good way. But my wife had warned me.
So now i follow her advice and i take times to take picture of each items to split my packs. Some are already sold.
250x CF2 3" disc and joystick pack were sold to a spain friend.
Magazines pack was sold to a french friend.
Some games were also already sold, like Iznogoud for 70€!
Now you can find all disc games separately at the auctions with a begin price at 10€.
For the compilations games, an Australian friend is interested, i'm waiting for his answer. (the postage cost is sadly very expensive to send there)
I have to split again all the tapes games and the hardware (the technimusique synthetiser is already on ebay)
But i seriously think i'll keep one 6128 and the Hxc to follow and test all the new future's productions, as the new reset#8 production. (J'aime beaucoup ton screen MacDeath! et le theme colle tellement à la réalité, je vais m'en faire un poster pour mon bureau tiens! Si tu es OK biensur)
And perhaps another one to make some upgrade. I have 2 ideas to do for the next months when i'll find the time. (Arduino with real AY + cpc touchdisplay with hxc)
So take a look at kyjena's auctions.
And for my sons i already mount their climbing game in the garden, setup an CPC emulator on my HTPC to play with them on our lounge and a mini pincab that i do myself. So you see Gryzor, my sons are growing the right way  ;) !

Reported as counterfeit: Very Rare Greatest Hits - 4 games cartridge for Amstrad GX 4000 CPC464 6128 plus - another of those 4 games in one cartridges from the same guy in France.
Relisted, a month later: Very Rare Greatest Hits - 4 games cartridge for Amstrad GX 4000 CPC464 6128 plus - would be good if a few more people reported this item too.

The second game i've played when i was 8y old (1986), just after Green Beret and of course some of basic prog of the 464 guide.
Their cases were very beautiful i think, notice is on back of the cover and inside, you find the loriciels logo with the cat in relief.

For all the ebay followers of my auctions, sorry to have canceled the "24 new empty CF2 disc auction" but it's for a good reason.

Well, this is how seriously ebay take copyright violations... After complaining via the "contact us" form when the auction was still listed after another day, I finally got this response 2 days later:
Quote
Thanks for your email expressing your concerns for Amstrad game cartridge 130723751483. My name is Nathan and I will address your points.

Let me reassure you that it's our top priority to ensure eBay remains a safe and reputable place to shop. We take reports of members who break our rules very seriously and we'll thoroughly investigate this matter. The reason why the listing you reported have not been removed is because we simply cannot just take your word for it. If we removed every listing that anyone reported to us it would not be practical.

As eBay are not the experts in items like this, we're not in a position to make judgements about whether they are authentic or not, except in the most extreme cases. This may mean that we can't remove the item because it's not clear enough from the item description that it breaches our policies. I have reviewed the listing and it is not obvious enough that it breaches our policies - there is no mention that the games included were made by different publishers or that the item is unauthorised.

Although I'm sure you're extremely knowledgeable about these types of items, we can't remove items at the request of third parties whose credentials we can't verify.

If you believe that the item in question breach the intellectual property rights of a third party. I recommend that you notify the rights owner and encourage them to join our Verified Rights Owners (VeRO) Programme. Many rights owners are already members. Once we've verified them as a rights owner, they can request the removal of any listings that breach their intellectual property rights.

Thank you again for bringing this matter to our attention and helping us keep eBay a safe and reputable place to buy and sell.
