new Thread Description
This thread was originally created to encourage traders here at GTZ to do more trading, especially retro related stuff. It has turned into a lot more and I am so grateful to everyone who contributed to this thread and have kept it going for nearly 6 months now. I hope this thread will continue to thrive and everyone who reads/participates in this thread will gain some value or knowledge out of it.

We will still have Trade lists up here, though it's been a while since anyone updated. I encourage everyone to look over their lists and post updates.
There is also a section for gorgeous pictures of game rooms that active participants of this thread have shared. Feel free to share some pics of your collection or game room.
I will be adding another section for information regarding video quality of retro gaming systems on modern displays and how to improve them.
There is rather some extensive discussion regarding how to improve the display quality of retro gaming systems and if you are new to this like I am, you will find it very informative.

Old Topic Description


GTZ has become a marketplace where the most commonly traded commodity is PayPal. I want to start an effort to get some trades going and to discuss some good games perhaps you never heard of or interested in but want to discover/know more of. For example, I just got intto shmups after years of ignoring the genre and I love to discover new(to me) and rediscover old ones(Sonic Wings comes to mind).

No pressure here. Feel free to discuss anything retro. Perhaps throw out some WTTF targets and what you have to offer. I am sick of browsing people's year old Available lists.

Some examples:

- WTTF/WTB/LF
- What you think is awesome game/series/whatever
- Potential games you have up for trade
- Pics of what you have/what you would love to get/what you think is the bestest awesomest game ever
- Show off your latest finds/adds to your collection

Oh and I know @DefaultGen recently got an old tower but is there anyone else here looking? I'm going to meet up someone on CL today with a bunch of old PC parts and a couple CRT monitors. Seems like they just want the stuff gone and not many people have inquired (because putting together the components is harder than getting a tower already set-up). From the picture in the posting this looks like 98/00 era stuff mostly. I imagine if I have the right read on them I'll just be taking all of it but there is more than I will need. Cases, power supplies, disc drives, sound cards, video cards etc... Not sure if any of the cases have mobos in them. Aaaanyway if this interests you shoot me a message.

I wouldn't want to screw with selling it on eBay but yeah the better sound and video cards in particular have some value. Shipping alone puts working towers over $100. For me at least it is about easier compatibility with 90s era games including DOS/3.1.

ya my mom has a huge collection of the old point and click and adventure style pc games from that era so she keeps a couple older machines around. she never understood the appeal and why my brother and i could sit and play all day and then myst hooked her and next thing you knew she had three computers and hundreds of those kinds of games lol. they were once quite plentiful on the pc landscape.

Heh, I have quite a few old adventure games myself and a lot of physical PC games from that era. I'm sick of using a crappy laptop or dosbox to play them. Not the same feeling on my 2560 x 1440 LCD monitor.

Any reason to actually keep one? The save battery backup doesn't do anything but wipes the save off the cart, and mine's refused to play any genesis/nes game i threw at it.

Crap's real dirty. I'm not sure what all I'll actually be able to salvage/use. Stuff I don't use that works will be available for shipping cost to people here and I'll just recycle what doesn't. Presumably at the very least here I have a working power supply, disc drive and floppy drive. I'm sure 2 of the 4 mobos are dead after looking at them. I'll have to check details on the other two. The 4 processors all seem fine.

It would be really nice if I could use one of the mobos. Then I could just find a nice case I want (these cases are all damaged for the most part) and put all this crap into it.

Edit: I may actually need some ram too, but that crap's cheap.

Speaking of ebay, how do you handle non-paying buyers? I have one right now who used BIN and hasn't paid. Worse is he messaged me first asking for a discount and that he can pay immediately. So I said sure and lowered the price. He bought it and last I heard from him.

Use immediate payment on BINs. You can file some bullcrap and it will get tagged on the buyer account but who cares when buyer accounts can be so easily created.

Lunar keeping it 100. Always require immediate payment. I get twitchy whenever I get an offer or sale from someone with very low feedback. Sometimes I'll leave offers hanging for a day or so while hoping I get an offer from someone with 100+ feedback.

Yeah I had someone with a few thousand feedback scam me on a camcorder. I blocked them and moved on.

At least they just didn't pay, instead of some awful saga.

In general though, I've had a lot less issues with more established users. It's probably pretty random overall though.
