When I bought my Zippy, there was no box option. Is there a way I can buy just a box? I'll buy a couple more items too if I can get this box.


Yes, I can sell you a box separately, and can include it with another order which would save you having to pay shipping for it..

How many copies from our favorite ebay seller are up yet?  Or did he start selling that ages ago?

Not a terribly high price hike but you can save about $12 or so buying direct from the AA store.

eBay Auction -- Item Number: 152489488481


Someone made a mint off a CIB Bentley Bear not long ago... :roll:

@sprybug, I'd like to get this added to the ROM properties database in Stella. Please provide the following info:







Sure, I just need a little clarification on what you are looking for exactly for these parameters.  Would Manufacturer be "AtariAge"?  Model No, I'm guessing would be the one I assigned, which in Atari tradition was a CX number.  Princess Rescue was CX26200 and this one is "CX26201".  Name "Zippy the Porcupine".  Note, if you want to put in the author, which would be me, you can put my name "Chris Spry" and anything else of note would be 64K Program Code and maybe that I had 8 wonderful beta testers that helped me debug the thing!  It was a lot of work with such a large code!

If you need me to be clear on anything else, just let me know.

This is all the info I need; I will model the properties after what you've provided for 'Princess Rescue'.


EDIT: Information is now added to Stella, and will be in the next release.  I also modified the Princess Rescue info to use CX26200 instead of simply 26200.

At 38 years of age, one of my proudest achievements is helping test zippy,and get acknowledged in the manual, I have tons of ideas for games but no computing knowledge, so at least I have done one thing in the atari community

Is the manual available online in PDF format or images?  I do plan on buying a boxed copy for the Atari Age store but would like to have the electronic manual as well to go along with ROM I downloaded for the game.

Sprybug and Albert.  You guys are the best.  He's a brief video review on Zippy to show my thanks.  It would have been longer but I haven't even beaten it yet.  icon_smile.gif  Don't judge too hard as I'm pretty new to Youtube.
