    Greetings..

    I'm Andi, 39 from West Yorkshire, UK. I have a reasonable collection of machines and consoles, most of which I've had since new. Finally got myself an AES which has been on the list for many years. The time was right and finally made the purchase.
    I've been a NG fan for many years.. as a kid, a friend had a AES and I was hooked.
    Other consoles I like which I own are the Dreamcast and Pc-Engine Duo-R and GT. These get regular use along with the Amiga 1200 I've had since new.
    Most of my stuff is upgraded or modded in some way to improve it, all done myself. I'm not afraid of a soldering iron and getting stuck in.
    I hope i dont piss anyone off asking questions but I do my research as best I can before asking n00b questions.
    Thanks for reading and I'm sure I'll get grilled soon enough..

    Cheers

    Andi

    you're off to a good start

    What I don't get about your post yet: What's the difference between "machines" and "consoles" for you?

    I'd say a console has no keyboard by default. So Amiga, Atari ST, speccy and C64 are machines.

    Welcome to the site from a Leeds lad. Here is evidence that consoles are, in fact, machines:

    Germans have a better understanding of the English language than the Brits.

    Oh, welcome bro!

    Welcome Andi. Started with the AES, huh? So did I. What games have you picked up so far that you like.

    A bunch of forty-something video-gaming nerds that are only keyboard commandos and mostly sedate pussies any other hour of the day cannot really be all that aggressive, can they? (My self included.)

    I love the lads here, this forum in general, and the mentality but lets not kid ourselves about this being some sort of dark web tough corner of the world.

    Cheers... Yea, picked up a pretty nice AES. It came with Samurai Spirits which I actually liked back when my mate had one. I've pre-ordered the NeoSD to get me started with but I will be looking out for the Metal Slugs, Eight Man, and quite a few others. It's great being able to have the NeoSD so I can play them but I still want to own them. Cant beat the real thing.

    from a gamer standpoint you won't be able to tell NeoSD and legit carts apart once you start the games up - because the code will be the same.

    I'm with you TotalMoop. I bought the aes carts of my favorite games to play in the early 2000's when many were starting to move to mvs carts and the prices of aes were not nearly as crazy as they are now. It's been interesting to lurk this site from then to now and see neo fans move from denouncing roms to now embracing it in a different form factor. To each their own and each format has fans and detractors here. The best part about this community is that there is a place for fans of all formats...except neo geo x...I have yet to see much love for those fans here

    I would imagine that for something to be a machine it must have moving parts. If so, would a PS2 be a machine because it has a fan and CD tray mechanism?
