    WCC at EVERCON 2023

    A special collectors edition TurboGrafx 16 console dressed up for the game Legendary Axe (1989) complete with skulls, vines, and a spider with glowing eyes indicating the power is on. This thing was fabulous, and it was a treat to see it (and play around with it) at the show! They sure don't...

    WCC at EVERCON 2023

    Another exhibitor's Nintendo Famicom up and running. A Sega Genesis with the "Power Base Adapter" that allowed the Genesis 1 console to play Master System games. An absolutely massive Sony TV. Though the set itself was in rough shape, the picture on it was exquisite- my camera couldn't...

    WCC at EVERCON 2023

    A few pictures of things other exhibitors brought to the show that were of interest. Here's a Hudson/NEC SuperGrafx console. (Wikipedia HERE) The show featured quite a few PC Engine and Turbo Grafx consoles which I spent a fair amount of time playing with. For the games I played, I can...

    On of @PS2it's Macs had a good message for the crowd during "Wheel of Fortune."

    The C128, running Avenger off the cartridge. We used the disk drive too, but as most people just wanted to "try things out" running a quick and familiar arcade game seemed a safe bet. The Compudyne (hooked up to the "ultimate weapon" Pooh Bear keyboard) when it was not working properly for a...

    A few photos of the gear @PS2it brought to the show. DOOM! He picked up a DOS "tank combat simulator" game, and the animated loading screens were the best part in my opinion. The game is tactically very deep, but it's very text heavy- requiring you to use your imagination for the bulk of...

    More photos! Another angle of the Need For Speed 3 LAN. People giving the machines a whirl! Saturday Morning.

    Evercon 23 Casualty List

    Evercon was last weekend, and it was the most significant stress test for a lot of the machines we've ever had- 10+ hours of continuous operation in some cases. The equipment selected for the show was of the "hardier" variety- I purposefully avoided things I knew were prone to overheating or...

    An advertisement photo for the SEGA Saturn. The text that went over it (per the poster on Tumblr) was something about a "feast" for gamers.

    Magazine advertisement photo for the Apple II. Not the system I'd pick to take to the beach, but hey. 😉

    A Tandy Color Computer 2 hooked up to an absolute monster of a TV. Another collector brought this one to the show, and it was fun to try out some of the games on it I'd not tried before.

    More photos! Across the hall from us. The projectors were for fighting games, racing games, and guitar hero. The lineup between the Philips CDI and the Midwest Gaming Classic booth. MGC is another convention held in Milwaukee, and they had a booth to promote their show (HERE) and sell off...

    Retro Computer Art

    Someone over on Reddit made a post (HERE) that featured a bunch of art from an educational book about Windows 95. I'm sharing here as well, as these are nifty!
