Racketboy Charity Auction 2017

Welcome to the 2017 Racketboy charity auction!

I'm still accepting donations - right up until the 23rd. Just PM me if you wish to add something to the auction. A minimum donation if you want one set, and a brief description if there's anything noteworthy.

This year our voted recipient is the Games done Quick Speedrun Marathon which in-turn will be donating the funds to the Prevent Cancer Foundation.

Every cent of the money bid on the items here will be transferred as a lump-sum during their January marathon (late-payments made after January 14th will be donated directly to the Prevent Cancer foundation upon receipt). Bidding will start at the price listed and each bid must be at least $1 more. Funding is in US dollars. Please consider donating some unused game, media, electronic device or art; I will be accepting items here up to December 23rd. The auction will run up until midnight (11:59:59 PM Central Time) on Saturday, December 30th, 2017, with a rolling end. What this means is if someone up-bids an item, it will continue to be biddable for an additional 5 minutes each time a bid is made, with a hard cutoff at 12:29:59 AM CST for all items. As in previous years, donors will be responsible for shipping costs, unless arrangements are made ahead of time. I've found that small items are easier to manage with shipping costs; Keep that in mind when donating. Winners are expected to transfer the funds before January 16th 2018 and items are expected to ship to the winners before January 31st, 2018 so long as payment has been made. Payment must be received before I will instruct donors to ship their items. Payments are accepted via paypal @ rbcharity2017@gmail.com, tho I can accept other payment methods if necessary. For paypal payment, please make payment as "gift" to eliminate fees.
Thanks again this year to Ziggy587 for the logo art!

09: Cronus Max Plus w/ Bluetooth 4 dongle $1 - Anapan
Image:
http://cronusmax.com/
In fact this is a slightly older model flashed with Plus firmware - Not hub compatible. Use this to convert new systems' wireless or wired controllers to work on other systems or PC. It enables mouse and keyboard use in games for the new gen systems that would otherwise not accept them. You can use the software to reassign buttons and axis, program or download macros for advanced game functions and many other things. I upgraded to the newest model not realizing that the new firmware I flashed on this one made this nearly as capable as my new one. The software is intuitive and makes advanced functions very easy to configure.
I'll include the box it came in if I can find it...

10: GB Boy Pocket (Game Boy mono clone) & 4 mono games $1 - Anapan
Image:
GB boy is almost new, there are some microscopic scratches on the screen - ask for detail pic if concerned.
This is a fully functional clone of the original DMG Game Boy - I was unable to make any games behave strangely or any different than an original Game Boy system. It feels cheap and plasticy, but works great.
Games included are loose carts:
Ms Pac-man
Yars' Revenge (sticker a little worn looking)
Tetris Attack
Motocross Maniacs
Image



11: ToToTek GG 32M Flash Cart for Game Gear $1 - Anapan
Image:
ToToTek Link
Works Great, tho games must be flashed via Parallel/Printer port in Windows 9X - XP. Switch on the side allows SMS roms to play on Game Gear.

12: Belkin Nostromo N45 USB game controller $1 - Anapan
Image:
Link to Belkin site
Ugly controller is ugly.
Looks nearly unused. I plugged it in just now and everything works. I read the bottom "stabilizer bar" is removable and only there so Sony didn't sue. Has some mouse functionality...?
