I've been offered a SC3000-H with cables & I'm assuming the ram catridge, card catcher and a slightly tatty boxed Mycard don't know the title (it has a a woman doing a kick wearing a red dress.)
How much do you think it's worth? The bloke said the price is £53 including £11 postage. Is that too much? The computer has all blue sticker stuff on it, but I'm assured it can be cleaned off. Why he can't do that I don't know.....
I'm assuming you can get cassette games for the SC3000. Are the games hard to get hold off and are they worth buying? What type of lead would you need to hook to play the tapes?
I already have a Mark 3 so I can play the cards & carts. It's just the thought of programming games on a Sega machine, that would be cool.
How do you post pictures up anyway with your post, say if the jpeg is on my desktop?

I have no idea if the tape games are worth having, i couldnt find any rom images of them to try out when i looked. You might have some luck finding cassettes on Australian ebay.
I thought i would be cool to program on a sc3000 too, but Bock told me the Basic programming software is well very basic and apparently only good for text games.
If you want to have a picture in your post you need to host it online somewhere. Whoever you get your internet access with probably gives you free webspace, and with an FTP program you can upload whatever you like to it. I use my NTL space for all my pictures on here.
Is that from arabic_computers by any chance? It's not too bad a deal for the price - you could probs get a loose unit cheaper on eBay, but Ninja Princess and the card catcher are worth maybe £20 by themselves.
No it's not boxed, it looks a little tatty, with all the keys covered in blue sticky stuff. I suppose it would clean up. I want the SC-3000H since I don't like rubber keys at all. Too specci 48k for my liking.
I looked around and found a retrogames type store selling the tapes for like £15-£25 for really basic games. They were also selling a boxed Monaco GP cart for £50!! Rip off city....
What cassette lead would I need? I have a few for my Specci +3 & Ti99/4a, would they work?
I am two minds to buy it. If I can find roms to download and transfer to tape or better the originals, along with books on SC3000 programming, I will probably buy it. Maybe........ ;D

If i were you i would pass up on this machine and wait for a better deal to turn up. The last few i saw on french ebay had lots of games with them, both cassettes and cartridges, and both finished for around the £50 mark if i remember correctly.
Ok but I've been searching for ages and have never seen any in France. (must be searching wrong!). Bock have you one spare to sell or has anyone got any tape games to sell?
Remember postage is £11 on that £53 and I'm getting a card catcher & game, so I don't think it's that expensive. It's just the thought of getting one and searching years for any tape software or books on how to program the games myself. It'll just collect dust in the end, I like buying machines and then being able to use them properly ;D
I could spare a SC-3000(H?) but it would be loose. Not much duplicates tapes either: Keyboard Learning Program (AUS) TB Let's Type Program (AUS) T Super Tape 1 (AUS) TIB (6 softs/games) That's the only ones I would consider parting now.
That would be great, what adapter/leads do you need? Does the machine has AV output or is it just an rf lead? What about the cassette lead? If I need special leads and stuff maybe I should wait to be a complete set.
