    Hi guys,

    just reintroducing myself. Male, german, Berlin, Germany . I have collected video game consoles for the last 25 years. I am deeply passionate about their technology, and i love creating software because of them.

    Gameroom stats:
    - very high density: 90% of the home consoles and several computers are ready-to-be-played, ~50 Platforms connected in one corner of a rooftop room, > 40 Platforms can output on Main TV
    - Controllers and Games are stored in drawers and on shelves in other parts of the room. I strive to have a full set of standard controllers for all major systems (in case of Saturn, this means 2 Multitaps and 10+ Joypads to support Saturn Bomberman competitions).
    - I try to own some milestone controllers, like Steel Battallion Controller, Sega Bass Fishing Rod, Maestromusic conductors stick, light guns, Nintendo "3D System" shutters, and the like.

    Key goals:
    - safe: switchable, surge protected power rails for 220V and 110V, fully off-the-grid most of the time.
    - convenient: easy removal of machines, cable extension from shelf min. 1m for all systems
    - somewhat clean: hide some of the cable mess. This place doubles as our "guest room".

    Future goal:
    - Get second set of power adapters and display cables for all systems to allow easier transportation of the collection to event sites. (i have done this before)

    Display / tech:
    - 3 * different sized Sony Trinitron TVs
    - lots of scart switchers
    - 1 * 27 inch 16:9 monitor + Framemeister

    - I have some spare systems, but i rarely sell as often i need the parts.
    - However, i am open for cool Trades, especially platforms i don't own.
    - I will use the Marketplace, but also feel free to PM.

    - When the rebuild is done, i will post pics. It will take a while.
    - Meanwhile, find attached an older shot with less systems on it. I have almost no time to spend on it.

    I am thankful to have been part of this friendly, helpful and professional community for 12 years now. All the best of greetings to the other collectors on the board!
