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

Yeah and lower percentages for lower values. I'm on the fence about a heavy $22 item with pricey (but real) shipping. I wish they had baked it into the item cost and had "free" shipping.

I'm definitely interested in this! So, how do I sign up for eBay Bucks? Also, is this deal limited to select eBay sellers or can I get this discount from any eBay item?

I'm typing like a tard today. Keep having to go back to edit posts.

I meant it's targeted. The reason DD doesn't ever get it because if you regularly sell on your account, they exclude sellers.

But if you have a account that's typically for buying, or only sell a few items occasionally, you will get this offer.

It's good for anything on eBay except official PayPal e-gift cards, that is e-gift cards sold by that account PayPal Digital or something like that.

I can't remember if you have to be invited to join ebay bucks or not, maybe @Lunar knows. I'm too lazy to google.

I can answer the other part though. With the coupons and eBay bucks it will work with any item on eBay from any seller. eBay handles that crap.

Ah yeah I didn't mention this, but I pretty much felt it was implied. You can't use promos to buy gift cards and crap. You also do not get eBay bucks on them, for obvious reasons.

Interesting about how targeted it is though, I assumed if I signed up for all their emails then I was fine. This means if I ever go full tilt selling on eBay I should have another account for that....

eBay Bucks info here

Look under enrollment and there should be a link.

Q: Do all my eBay purchases qualify?

A: Most purchases on eBay qualify, but some restrictions apply. See Terms & Conditions.

For example, to qualify, purchases must meet the following requirements:
Paid for with PayPal
Payment needs to be made on eBay's checkout system. Payments made directly via PayPal to a seller's account aren't eligible.
Made AFTER you enroll in the eBay Bucks Rewards Program (can be a winning bid or Buy it Now).
Bought on the US eBay site (www.eBay.com). Some third-party automated bidding applications (sniping tools) are actually placing their bids on international sites as opposed to bidding on the US site directly. Purchases completed by these applications do not qualify to earn eBay Bucks.
Among other restrictions, purchases made in the following categories DO NOT qualify:
eBay Motors (effective January 1, 2017, Parts & Accessories within the Motors category will qualify for eBay Bucks)
Classifieds
Real Estate
eBay Gift Cards, Gift Cards, and Digital Gifts within the Gift Cards & Coupons category
Coins & Paper Money, but only for Bullion within that category
Heavy Equipment within the Business & Industrial category (effective January 1, 2017)

Too true. But hey at least everything worked right in the end. Well except that racing game and the 3DO controller, I'm still not sure on that game yet. It might just run like ass doing 3+ players. And even in the instance with the controller, you set things right so it's all good.

The one controller kind of works. Which honestly makes it slightly more annoying because my common fixing methods did not work. So I have no idea what the hell is wrong with it.

I should have taken a picture of that Just Cause disc before having it cleaned. The game runs flawlessly now, but man was that disc hilarious, a true masterpiece of a failed cleaning. When I took it in, the employee was like I don't see anything wrong with it. I asked if they were blind which is okay because they love me. But yeah then they looked at it better and went oh crap lololol.

You don't even need a turbo grafx to see if that works, you can just pop the thing into. like, magic engine.

Don't laugh too hard, I've had rigs that didn't work with Magic Engine properly because they were looking for XP CD drivers that didn't exist in Windows 7. Not to mention getting inputs configured from nothing's still a pain in the dick regardless, imo.

Promise you I don't have Magic Engine installed on anything.

But yeah, Ootake is fine, and it can be installed on just about any ole slapdick tower. Don't have a pc tower? Buy some complete garbage for like $40 or less off CL, worth it to test a $1000+ game.

Don't have any emulators, i go out of my way to make sure of that, but there are plenty of ways to check for bad discs, and can be found with a simple google search for example; https://www.raymond.cc/blog/test-cd-or-dvd-readabi...

Emulators are just more practical though.

Stop me when this is starting to sound familiar:

Buyer: Hey there, I am interested in your listing, how much are you looking for?
Seller: Well, I posted for offer. So make an offer.
Buyer: Ok, well, these are the lowest eBay sold listings, and they all ended around $50, so how about $40 shipped?
Seller: Well, if you gonna use eBay sold listings, here are the ones that sold for more than $75.
Buyer: Ok, that's cool. I totally respect whatever values you set your items at. So, what's your value?
Seller: There are plenty of examples of eBay sold listings between $65-$75.That's why I said I am looking for offers.
Buyer: ....
