1. Soooo...how much are your games?

If you are interested in a game, make an offer to Pix_Z@spamneinquestchest.com (remove "spamnein"). I know a lot of people are probably more comfortable with fixed prices, but these are collectibles. As such, their price will fluctuate as items fade in and out of favor. Remember when Wishbringer with the stone fetched premium prices? Offers should be made in USD and should reflect the amount for the game alone; shipping will be added later. Please note that once a price is agreed upon payment must be received within 10 days. After 10 days the item will be made available to other customers.


2. What forms of payment do you accept?

PayPal, check, cashier’s check, or money order. All international transactions must be paid for via PayPal. (Sorry, my bank charges extortionist fees for touching anything drawn on a foreign bank, even if the funds are already converted to USD.)


3. What about shipping?

I ship via the U.S. Postal Service and charge the exact amount --no handling charges.


4. What if my item is lost or damaged in transit?

Unlike UPS, the U.S. Postal Service does not automatically insure packages against loss or damage. I recommend you purchase insurance for large dollar value sales/trades or if you simply want to sleep worry-free. Once your package is in the hands of the postal service I cannot take responsibility for lost or damaged items unless insurance was purchased. I will usually quote optional insurance cost, but feel free to ask.


5. Can I return the item?

Except for items listed in the “Newer Items” section, items can be returned for up to 21 days after the postmark. Because items listed in the “Newer Items” section are generally for playing, not collecting, and they can be easily duplicated, they are nonreturnable. Postage is nonrefundable. Items must be returned in the same condition as when it was purchased.


6. Will you transfer the data on 5.25” disks to 3.5” or CD?

I can transfer data from 3.5" disks, for a $7.00 service and materials fee per game. However, I will not copy data from games and sell them without the game. Please note that transferring the data doesn’t necessarily mean you will be able to play the game off the new disks, as some older games built in copyright protection techniques which may render data transfer useless. Unless the package specifically says that it did not employ copy protection techniques, I won't know ahead of time if the transfer is useable.


7. Are the disks tested?

Most media is by default UNTESTED, as items are assumed to be collectibles, not playing copies. Some items I cannot test, as I don’t own an Amiga or an Apple II.

I will test items listed in the “Newer Items” section before a transaction is complete. Please be aware, however, that many of these compilations will not function on newer operating systems and hardware. Many, in fact, require a DOS operating system or a DOS emulator. A DOS emulator can be found at http://dosbox.sourceforge.net. Not all games will work using emulators, so I recommend a good foundation in DOS and an operating system with DOS if you intend to play games which have not been reprogrammed for newer operating systems.
