    G3 AIO Score

    First time real post in the conquest section, as well as first time real post in some years on this site. By some sort of sheer blind luck I came across a Power Macintosh G3 AIO for free on Craigslist, albeit without the hard drive. I'm assuming it works from inspecting the board and internals and everything although I haven't yet connected it to power, but will do so tomorrow morning. What it is missing besides the hard drive though is the sled that the drive mounts on inside of the caddy that slides out of the back in order to service the board and drives. Besides cannibalizing another machine, does anybody have any suggestions about where to source another drive sled?

    Powermac 8100 ATX PSU wiring

    Hi everyone, I am wondering if anyone knows how to rewire a standard ATX PSU to use in a powermac 8100, my IIci uses one and I have another spare for the 8100. Also, will soft power work straight away?

    My Pride and Joy Conquest - Complete

    I have finally completed my collection for the NEW OLD STOCK PowerMac G4 MDD. This machine is special because it runs Mac OS 10.5.8 and Mac OS 9.2.2 natively. I purchased all items separate and everything (including upgrades) was purchased NEW within the last 2 years. 1) PowerMac MDD 1.25ghz FW400 (2gb ram, 80gb & 250gb, AirPort Card, Upgraded Power Supply) The small drive has Mac OS 9.2.2/10.3 the larger has Mac OS 10.5.8 2) Harmon Kardon Sound Sticks III with sub 3) 17" Apple Studio Display 4) ADC to DVI adapter (to prevent damage to the power supply) 5) AirPort Extreme (first rev) Base station (not shown - required to work with AirPort Card WEP) 6) 3 Extra Power Supplies (in case the one fails - common) Total invested: $1500 - but its a brand new machine from 2003 right down the the upgrades. Runs Mac programs from about 1995 to about 2005, that's 10 years of software compatibility, by far the most versatile Mac.

    2 B&W G3s + Studio Display

    Came across a guy who had found 2 B&W G3s and a Studio Display in his attic. Picked them up yesterday, had to troubleshoot them a bit, but sure enough, they came to life! One had no ram, one had two sticks (one bad). Studio display works for the most part, but has to be tapped every once in a while and has a horrible green and magenta effect on the screen. Thinking I might sell one if there's any interest. Cosmetically, one is a little rough.. missing side panel, scuffs and scratches, cracked or broken feet and handles. But it works! On a side note, I found this on the letgo app

    Boot iBook G4 From USB

    I need to reinstall Leopard on my iBook G4, however I have no dual-layer DVDs to burn my .dmg to. So, I need to boot from USB. I have heard that this has been done before through Open Firmware. How is this done? I might also need to install on my PMG5, so I'd like a method that works with that too. Thanks!
  6. I just bought a powerMac G5 with the Quad core 2.5GHz CPUs This machine is a super find (I plan on maxing out the memory and putting in an SSD) I dreamt about owning this machine when it was out in 2005 and now 10+ years later I have one! I was wondering if there any opinions out there about which OS does better on it 1) OS 10.4 2) OS 10.5 I've heard that OS 10.5 with the whole universal code thing slows things down. Also, I don't know if Safari in 10.4 will be so outdated that I won't be able to cruise the web at all. I'm also hoping to get a decent MacOS 9.2.2 set-up on it (SheepShaver? natively?) Any other tips on running either OS 10.4 or 10.5 would be appreciated. Thank you ahead of time for your wisdom guys

    Tsu's Power Macintosh 9600

    Hi Folks! I've finally decided to post details about my "vintage" mac setup on the Internet! I say vintage with quotes, as I don't really know if a 9600 would count as vintage... I also don't know if I'd call it a conquest, it's more a collection I've built up starting around late 90s.. It's a little.... Crazy. But I love it! If I can think of one community that would appreciate these specs, I think this one would be it.. I will try to post pictures later on this week, maybe tomorrow after work! For now, take a peek at this: --- BEGIN SETUP DETAILS --- Base System: PowerMac 9600/350MHz CPU Upgrade: Sonnet G4 1GHz CPU Board Memory: 1GB (Could go up to 1.5GB) Monitor: Sun 21" Display (Maxed at 1600x1200 @ 85Hertz) Apple Desktop Bus Input Devies: Datadesk Mechanical Keyboard w/ Trackball mouse integrated & detached number pad Touchpad PCI Cards: Aurora Fuse Video Caption Card ProTools AudioMedia III Card 3dfx Voodoo 5500 for Mac Video Card OrangePC 550 (I think it's a 550...) DOS Card (w/ Pentium MMX 233MHz CPU and 256MB of RAM) Adaptec SCSI Card (Not sure on model, but i think the main internal port is labeled LVD) Orange Micro USB 2.0/Firewire 400 Card USB Periphrials: Microsoft USB Optical Mouse Macally USB Gamepad (looks like the PS1 gamepad) Wacom PenPartner Drawing Tablet Canon Flatbed Scanner Epson Stylus Photo R1800 Edirol UA-25 MIDI/Sound Device Palm Connect USB Cable External Seagate 1TB Hard Drive Firewire Periphrials: External Memorex DVD-DL Burner External DVD-RAM Drive (Swiped from a G4) SCSI: 0-Primary Hard Drive (Just under 200GB) 1-External Sony MO 5GB Drive 2-**NOTHING** 3-Internal CDROM Drive (Whatever the 9600 came with) 4-Internal jaz 2GB Drive 5-External (VERY old) 1x Apple CDROM Drive 6-External 250MB Zip Drive 7-Adaptec SCSI Card Serial Periphrials: Color Stylewriter 4500 (Not functional) Newton MessagePad 2100 Apple QuickTake 200 Camera Supera Fax/Modem 288 DOS Card Periphrials: Old Microsoft Serial Mouse on COM1: PC ProgramPad GamePad (Looks like a SNES controller) on the Game port --- END SETUP DETAILS --- All three audio devices (builtin mac audio, audiomedia III, and edirol UA-25) route through my Sony DA777ES, which was an amazing receiver for the time.. Only real problem I have is the aurora fuse video caption card is SLOOOOWW.. The video displays on the Mac at about 10 FPS @ 256 colors, at thousands or millions, it's unplayable, nothing shows up. I THINK this is due to how picky this computer is with PCI card order... I've fiddled a LOT with this, and this combo has everything working top speed, except the video caption card.. Kind of a minor issue, maybe I'll try other permutations of card combos later.. Also, I have a Apple DOS card too, fastest one.. Sadly, I can't boot with USB Extensions on, it's my understanding that they conflict with the DOS Card.. That's why I picked up the OrangePC card. I _think_ that's about everything.. If you have questions or thoughts, feel free to comment! I would love to hear suggestions or other ideas about my setup! Thanks for reading this, and have a good one!
  8. I went to the Goodwill thrift shop in Columbus, NE when seeing a friend I made at Anime Nebraskon, and my wife and I found several things we wanted. I got several games including Oddworld (PS1 game), and several PC games, but I got a perfect in box (maybe installed once?) Diablo II BattleChest with LOD: Expansion pack and keys and strategy Guide. I also found a CD copy of Sim City 3000 for the Mac. I didn't know it was for Mac OS until I got it home and went to install it on Windows 98 SE. Is this rare? I looked on eBay and can't find a single copy of Sim City 3000 for Mac OS. I only found Windows (and I think playstation or something). The game disc is in perfect condition, has a key code (i think) and the case is in good condition. It wasn't in box but it works. Recently I got a Pentium 4 1.5Ghz with 256MB RAMBUS (I upgraded to 512MB last week) Dell Dimension 8100 which I am turning into a multi-OS system to play old games (Transport Tycoon/Deluxe, Monopoly, Several other games, probably Diablo II as well). So I am working with that for other games. I have yet to haul out my G3 Beige to play either Diablo II (more likely to leave that on the Pentium 4) or Sim City. My back is messed up so I can't lift the desktop to set it into place. Probably sometime over the next month I will do it and let you know what I think. The last time I played Sim City it was Sim City 2000 (which I still have a copy on CD with Urban Renewal Kit) and that was maybe 10 years ago? Whatcha think?
