If this scenario tickles your pickle then this Dungeon Master vintage PC game is for you.

For sale - Dungeon Master vintage PC game - £15

Wikipedia has the following to say about Dungeon Master...
In contrast to the traditional turn-based approach that was, in 1987, most common, Dungeon Master added real-time combat elements (akin to Active Time Battle).[8] Other factors in immersiveness were the use of sound effects to indicate when a creature was nearby, and (primitive) dynamic lighting. Abstract Dungeons and Dragons style experience points and levels were eschewed in favor of a system where the characters' skills were improved directly via using them. Dungeon Master was not the first game to introduce these features. Dungeons of Daggorath for the TRS-80 Color Computer first employed them in 1982. Dungeon Master was, however, responsible for popularizing these elements. Other features of Dungeon Master included allowing players to directly manipulate objects and the environment by clicking the mouse in the enlarged first-person view.[9] It also introduced some novel control methods including the spell casting system, which involved learning sequences of runes which represented the form and function of a spell's effect. For example, a fireball spell was created by mixing the fire symbol with the wing symbol. This kind of attention to detail and focus on the user interface was typical of the game and helped create an often captivating sense of craft and ingenuity.

For Sale - NASCAR Racing Vintage PC Game - £15

For sale - NASCAR Racing vintage PC game - £15

Wikipedia has the following to say about NASCAR racing...
NASCAR Racing is a video game developed by Papyrus Design Group and published by Virgin for the PC. A PlayStation version was released in 1996 by Sierra On-Line.
NASCAR Racing was released in the fall of 1994 for DOS personal computers. It featured more than 25 of the 40 regular drivers in the 1994 NASCAR Winston Cup season. Notable absences included Dale Earnhardt (who would go on to win the Winston Cup that year), Bill Elliott, Dale Jarrett, Kyle Petty and Darrell Waltrip, although the latter's brother, Michael, was included.
The game let the player race with up to 38 other cars (32 on shorter tracks like Bristol and Martinsville) and it also offered multiplayer action via direct links (one computer connected to another via a LAN) and also through an online system owned by Papyrus called Hawaii.

The CD-ROM version of the game also offered a SVGA graphics mode which was accessible through the command prompt (by entering "nascar -h"), but it was too demanding for many of the computers of its age, mostly 486 and early Pentium PCs. hardware accelerated versions were later created and bundled with the Matrox Millennium and Diamond Edge 3D."

Wikipedia has the following to say about Jimmy White's 'Whirlwind' Snooker...
"Jimmy White's 'Whirlwind' Snooker is a computer game by veteran programmer Archer MacLean, released by Virgin Games in 1991for the Commodore Amiga, Atari ST and PC (later for the Sega Mega Drive). 'Whirlwind' Snooker is a highly realistic snooker simulator.

Although the game was not the first to simulate snooker (or pool) in 3D, it made full use of the processing power and graphics capabilities of 16-bit home computers and was praised for its then ground-breaking realism and easy-to-use interface. ACE said that the game was the closest thing to being on a real snooker table which existed at the time, and it could be used by a player to refine real-life snooker skills.[2]"

Sold - Monty Python's Flying Circus Vintage PC Game - £15

And now for something completely different :-) A bit like Marmite you are either going to love or hate this Monty Python's Flying Circus themed retro DOS game. The entire game is contained within a single 1.44 Mb diskette.

For sale - Monty Python's Flying Circus Game - £15

The box contains the original blue diskette and the user guide (which list the anti piracy passwords needed to start the game). Although the action in the gameplay is simple and relatively straightforward, the designers seem to have gone to great lengths to add Python-esque references wherever possible.

Monty Python references abound throughout this game

As Gumby makes his way through each level, he must collect cans of Spam to win a piece of his brain at the end. One mini-game challenges the player to contradict everything the on-screen character says in the style of the "Argument Clinic" sketch.

"This side-scrolling platform title is full of artwork, animations, and inside jokes from the popular British television series Monty Python's Flying Circus, which originally aired on the BBC in the early 1970s and enjoys continued popularity in syndication around the world. The player guides D.P Gumby through four "completely different" worlds, in search of parts of his missing brain. The game's graphic style is based on the cutout animations of Terry Gilliam and should be instantly familiar to fans of the television show and movies."

For Sale - Interlink Durapoint Rugged Mouse - £29

Following the recent trend of obsolete I.T. equipment of special interest to vintage computer and game machine fans I present this Interlink Durapoint mouse for your delight and delectation.

The term "mouse" is being used here in the loosest of meanings, the cursor is moved by a raised rubber button, much like a jumbo version of the TrackPoint button found on Leonovo ThinkPads and some of the classic Toshiba business laptops.

Framed in durable stainless steel, with a weighted base, it is the HumVee of the mouse World. It has a captive cable with a 9 way D-type Serial connection, but comes with a handy ps/2 adapter and a Belkin USB adapter. These units have been used with a variety of legacy operating systems; Win 98, ME, 2000, XP, Vista and 7. The Belkin adapter will work with most modern equipment, normally no drivers are required.

For Sale - Interlink Durapoint Rugged Mouse - £29

It is the perfect item if you want to create a kiosk computer for use in exhibitions, or any other situation where the equipment is accessible to the public in an unsupervised situation. It could also could be a useful way to integrate computers in a chemically aggressive environment, such as garages and workshops. Perfect, in fact, for anyone needing a bullet proof mouse for their CAM setup in a dusty or oily environment.

Here's what Interlink sais about the Durapoint Rugged mouse.
THE TOUGHEST MOUSE IN THE WORLD! Drive a truck over it. Throw it off a building. Or just use it 24/7 in your process control operations or on your manufacturing floor. DuraPoint dominates. It has no moving parts (nothing to clog up or break) and is maintenance-free. It's also environmentally sealed, waterproof and impervious to atmospheric contaminants, vibration, sound waves and physical shock. DuraPoint is available in both stand-alone and console mountable versions.
DuraPoint is suitable for hazardous area usage, class 1 division 2, groups A, B, C and D. It is designed to meet NEMA 4X, 6P, 12 and 13 standards.

These units cost over £200 when last available in the UK, the current asking price is £29, a fraction of the original cost, for a designer item in near mint condition, the price even includes delivery within the UK. I can send to some European locations too, but please ask for a quote first as this could be quite a high sum.

For Sale - Vantage VQS04C Video Switcher Multiplexer - £49

Here is another item that could be of interest to retro computer game fans. This is a composite video switcher and multiplexer unit. These units were typically used to take the outputs of security cameras and combine them into single image for staff to view live and simultaneously recording it for evidence.
However we used this device at live events to monitor multiple camera feeds on a single large screen prior to feeding our vision mixer.

For sale - Vantage VQS04C Video Switcher Multiplexer - £49

The feature that will be of interest to retro computer game fans is that it can also be used to select and switch to a full screen image of any of the four inputs. For those people with a collection of retro machines it would save a lot of time plugging and unplugging systems. It would also reduce wear on hard to replace video outlet ports of older machines.

It is of a compatible width for 19" rack systems and is approximately 1U high. It has 4 composite video inputs and 2 composite video outputs.

For sale - Vantage VQS04C Video Switcher Multiplexer - switch between 4 inputs

It is still in good working condition and looks great cosmetically too. It is priced at £49, the price even includes delivery within the UK. I can send to some European locations too, but please ask for a quote first as this could be quite a high sum.

It would be a shame to scrap it, if you have further enquiries, leave a comment or message me via the contact page here no dreamers, time-wasters or fantasists please.
