dexterslab wrote:hi Guys, not posted here in ages, sorry!
After some deliberation i have decided i'm going to be selling up my final bits of Atari kit, namly my two TT's and all the bits that go with them.
I was hoping i would get back into it and start playing around with mint etc, especially after all the cash i spent on future proofing it, but i just dont seem to have the time and knowledge to get mint running properly. So instead of letting it sit gathering dust i'll sell it and let someone else have it and hopefully i'll get some useage!
I just wanted to post up here to say thanks to everyone who has helped, especially with all the mint questions i had!
I'm going to catalog all the stuff i have and put them onto ebay probably in about a week or so as two separate auctions, i dont think worldwide shipping will be an option but i'll at least ship to uk & europe.

It amazing, my PC Nvdia 8800 graphic card died 2 months or so back & I am using the old ATI 9200 meant for my CTPCI.
It was choking on Google Earth.
I couldn't imagine me using such a "bad" card on my rig if I am still playing those 3D games.

It's a heavily customised micro computer on it's own leeching on the big bird.
It's amazing that it works (... or don't work ) like how it ought to be.

Yeah, On my motorbike, I lost an arguement with a car and I was fairly well messed up.
Shredder11 wrote:Regards 3D gaming that has been mentioned, is it only me or is anyone else not that bothered about 3D? I mean even back in the 8-bit days when it first appeared I always thought, "wow that looks impressive/good attempt" but I always returned to the games that were the most addictive or compulsive. I find nearly all the 3D games I have seen or played, to be somewhat lacking in the immediate fun way.

Yes, I love Playing the WarHammer 40K : Dawn Of War Games... They are very heavily reliant on a good 3D Card.

There is more to it that that, but I wont go into it... Im already a waffler without that.
wongck wrote:Yes, I liked that too.... especially you can drop ship some space marines behind enemy lines
It's good that you can still do something you really enjoy doing.
I always think that musician are the luckiest because the main part of their job is their hobby
In your case you probably love doing something related to music, else your main Atari use is cubase.
FatRakoon wrote:Yeah, but only a basic 4 man squad without their extra weapons.
If only you could have the full man squad and with the weapons, then they would be a force.
I much prefer the Orcs to be honest. I have not yet completed the game ( SoulStorm ) on hardest with the Marines ,but I did it with relative each with the Orcs, and the Necrons.

But I remembered that once I had a marine in a shell hole & he was not hit by.... enemy ,can't remember Orcs or what else... anyway, I was able to reinforce him and upgrade the weapons until that team was strong and was able to win that scenario. Amazing thing was, he was completely cut off and isolated... looks like one of those funny bugs in the game
