    Beta’s obligatory thread

    I'm used to small production trinitrons, so I have never really noticed them. Thanks for making me aware

    Beta’s obligatory thread

    The monitor is in good condition, outside of a taking a bit too long to switch resolutions, seemingly randomly and rarely restarting, and two horizontal lines that might be Burnin, though I am unsure of what would cause burn in that would be completely from side to side aligned with a scanline

    While technically not an Apple Computer, it very much is something designed around a PowerPC Macintosh. I managed to find a working Diamondtron CRT styled after the Graphite G4.

    Small update: After some good scrubbing and magical erasing, the floppy drives are looking amazing as well. I can also confirm that the port on the back, and at least the 5.25 drive, works without issue. I don't have any 800k floppies, and what 3.5 floppies I do own are currently states away...

    Beta’s obligatory thread

    As I seem to be finding more and more interesting apple machines as time goes on, a guess I’ll just make an overarching thread. And, well, at least I have a literally white whale to show off this time. Yes, I finally managed to find an Apple IIGS, and in obscenely good condition. It doesn’t...

    Wombat with a gamepad

    There have been some projects for mapping a gamepad to keyboard inputs, but if I'm not mistaken most of them are centered around PS/2 and or AT keyboards. With that said, I do know there is a Vogons Thread where someone was developing a board to convert genesis and snes controllers to PS/2 that...

    Thanks.

    As far as I can tell, it's just the normal ROM. It's the SAMSUNG KMM264512G-12 APPLE341-0757.

    Beta's New Unit (7100/80 AV)

    I will be getting around to doing it in the next few months. For now, I am content with leaving it as is until I am confident in my SMD abilities. My LC II is a little rough on the inside

    No, I apparently managed to find one that hasn't started leaking all over its self. It's been IPA cleaned since this image, and the PRAM battery was changed as well. Have the beauty shot.

    Awesome. I have a love for slight sims, so I will definitely give that a shot when I can get to it. Currently, I have it all up and running mostly stable, and I think I might be looking out for a HPV card at some point, as the AV card seems to be a minor hindrance at this point. I've done...

    Thanks, I'm still trying to figure out what I am going to be doing with this machine, but that can be blamed on my managing to find interesting PC hardware recently. After all, you can't find an AWE64 Gold for $5 without getting sidetracked for a while. I'm also using my G4 to move files to the...

    Believe me, after having to recap the PSU and the logic board in my LC II, and changing the thermal paste on my DP G4, this was easy maintenance. Heck, it only involved four easy to remove tabs.

    I would be interested in doing some of that stuff if NuBus cards were either available locally, or weren't far more than the money I spent on this machine. And, really, since I have my G3 B&W, I don't quite need to upgrade this machine all too much. Yeah, I noticed that the system can't quite...

    That it is. It isn't the most upgradable or the most interesting, but it's fun to mess around with. I've already switched the paste out with something modern, don't worry. It wasn't original-xbox-level dried gum paste just yet, but it wasn't too far off from being there. I also went ahead and...

    Beta's New Unit (7100/80 AV)

    While this lad isn't an absolute unit like the later PowerPC based machines, I am happy to have it. I would consider this kind of machine one of my Beige Whales, as it's something that I've wanted to get but I was never going to spend the money most would ask for. Functionally, it's more of a...

    Help Troubleshooting an LC II

    Earlier today, I managed to pick up an LC II. Once I got home, I opened it up, and cleaned out what dust had collected over the years, then went to turn it on. I currently don't have a DB-15 to VGA converter to allow me to get video out of it, but I thought I should at least plug it in to make...
