These three pal games I just bought won't fit into the atari 2600 jr console. The cartridge ends are curved. They seem to somewhat fit into a 7800 but haven't tested the games yet. Are all pal cartridges made this way?

Those all Salu branded by chance? Plain white label with black text... warped is probably more like it. Depending on how they were stored all these years, may be severely buckled, curved, warped, rounded, whatever. Recently picked up a bunch of CBS carts and couldn't believe how chinsey and cheap the shell's are on them. Pretty sure the Salu carts are of the same quality. Worst I've ever seen for an Atari cartridge. :(

The HES versions of those games were made with Activision shells IIRC, so should be much better quality. But again, if they were stored improperly, something funky might be up with them. I'm guessing you've got the Salu versions though...

Yes, most probably the Salu versions.

Warped indeed a little, sometimes you just have to use a hammer.

They are Salu I believe. They look just like high voltage's pictures. The sides are curved like in his and makes it hard to push into the atari system. I finally got them to go in but it's a pain in the ass and sounds like you are breaking the cartridge pushing them in.
