BetaC Posted March 29, 2022 Share Posted March 29, 2022 So, on a whim, I decided to go to a local electronics recycler a few days ago, and $200 later I cam home with an untested IIGS that was still platinum-white, rather than aged and beige. As it turns out, the system was damn near spotless on the inside, and didn't have any battery or capacitor corrosion. Seriously, it just needed some minor magic-erasing to look somewhat new. Now that I have a known good system, and working drives as well, I am trying to figure out what I am going to do with the machine. I currently have it running through my retrotink 2x via composite, and have written a few floppies to get me through the few months it will take to get a floppy emu. As for my need for advice, I'm just looking for basic stuff, really. I have a SCART retrotink available, would that work with one of the IIGS SCART cables? If not, I can eventually get one of the modern solutions, and the composite out only loks terrible when messing in GS/OS. Do I actually need more than 1MB of RAM? I am not opposed to grabbing more, and I know I will when I am doing better financially, but if I can put it off for a while, that won't hurt. With ADTPro, can I just get a direct serial to USB cable, or do I need to get an adapter for the serial to RS-232 cables if I want to use something modern? Is it worth investing in a HDD solution for a IIGS if I plan on getting a FloppyEmu later on? Thanks for your help, and for being a great place. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
