You know ATARI. Well done.

Question 1: Why do you stack game boxes? From my experience the lower ones will be dented through the years (or do you put all inserts into other boxes?) Better to have these up to their edges side by side towards each other. Needs more space but would be safer - see my collection (part of - and the better computer AMIGA *g*)


Question 2: Can you tell me which green "Game Story" book can be seen?

Answer 1: I plan to display the games side by side on the new gaming room but:
- This take much more place (I have almost 4000 boxed games)
- For VCS the size of the boxes are the same so it's "easy" to make shelves but for A8 or ST it's different
(By the way the Amiga is a great computer too but ST is better !!! Atari rulez!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;) ;) ;)

Answer 2: This is the book of an exhibition that took place in Paris last year at the "Grand Palais".

Here is the plan:



On the garden level: one big room for Arcade.
On the middle: Terrace (WAF compatibility :) :) :)), home cinema (Children compatibility), cocktail games + VCS games wall
On the top: new bedroom (for visitors), bathroom and shelves for computers games + consoles, computer (attic)

It's funny I used to defend the ST all the time because....it was Atari.....but only about a couple of years ago I discovered that (more or less) the Amiga was done by the A8 designers and the ST by the C64 designers....

So I guess I should have gone Amiga, because my true and only home Atari stuff love is the Atari 8 bits line, which is the best homecomputer ever of course   ;D

However, the ST had the monochrome mode which made it also a USEFUL computer, compared to only a graphics/games machine like the Amiga......
Including the Midi port into the ST's hardware was a master move. It cost only a couple of cents in parts, but it sold thousands of STs to the music scene....

It was also the easier system to program from what I've read....but what do I know ;)

Today we live happily together, @RGE the C64 and Atari 800XL were right next to each other...........






(of course the XL ran the better games...... ;D ;D ;D ;D)

I somehow haven't seen this thread yet. Man!  :o That's impressive! As a small scale Atari collector myself
this definitely is inspiring to see!
