Steve I presume you will be bringing 2 tvs and 3 amigas as usual?

Mark if you can bring Amiga and Monitor that would be excellent.

I'm planning on getting to the Hotel around 4pm and we can try and sort out the room for the evening then.

3xA1200, yup.
I've got about 7 TVs of various quality. I'll grab 3 at least.

Right I'll aim to bring;

1 x Atari ST
1 x Amiga 600 (not ideal for 2 player KO2 but can be a backup)
1 x Philips 8833 MK II Monitor and RGB cables for Amiga and Atari.

oh and 1 x Wooden box Joystick :)

thanks guys, in fairness 3 Amigas/Tv's may be enough based on our numbers :(

I think Andy has one too, Andy?!

Agreed re: Numbers :?

Still, it's better to have a spare or two just in case I suppose.

Yes, always aim for 25% hardware oversupply at least :)

Hardware update;

The monitor is fine, the Atari ST however not so much (see picture below, I've asked for help in Atari-Forum.com) and no Amiga as it's not where I thought it was but is in fact in one of about 20 cardboard boxes which I don't want to rummage through.

It's either a RAM or PSU/Shift chip issue apparently. So I'll need to crack it open and remove the flakey RAM upgrade I had in there and see if that helps, otherwise I'll have to find my multimeter!

Atari ST fixed, but cracked version of KO2 (from Automation Disk 69 part 5) does not run. Every other game/app/demo works flawlessly and I can't access my KO2 originals at the moment. I'll just bring it anyway and see if Steve's disks work.
