Played on: 'Vader' with S-Video mod.

 

Gr8 game.  Never had it BITD, but got it recently.  First proper run on it.  Def room for improvement.  Some amazing bloody scores being laid down.  Sitting in the corner sucking my thumb  :woozy: 

 

 

 

That is one handsome Vader model (I love Vaders).

Since I'm stuck with Frostbite I had to take another run down those dreadful slopes.  I hate Skiing.

Please pay no mind to my ultra rare "my RF cord is screwed" version of the game causing the frozen north to be hyper polluted.  I promise you the jarring color shift confers to me no advantage.

 

 

What model 2600 do you have? It may just be that the color pot needs adjusting.

Had a blast with this one, but time is my enemy. Promise to upgrade to Stella 5 before the next game, then no more weird CGA pix. Hope to carve out a moment for a ski run, Skiing has been one of my favorites since age 9.

Slowly plugging away.  Aiming for that 100k and i'll be happy.  What an intense game.  Precise stick movement or frozen balls!.

It's my heavy sixer.  It has all kinds of idiosyncrasies.  It's the one with the right control port that doesn't work either.  :(

171010 points, losing 7 lives in just one stage, that enemy pattern is frustrating, not as the patterns in burger time but still drain all you lives one after another, this is my last shot at frostbite ( too many good players in this game ) perhaps gonna try one more time in skiing.

Flip it over, and see if there's a hole in the bottom. Shine a flashlight in there - there should be an adjustment pot to tweak the color maybe a half an inch inside. You'll need a long, tiny screwdriver, and it won't take much movement to change it.

 

This is what it looks like from the top with the shielding removed:

There's also usually an access hole in the top of the aluminum shielding, so if you wanted to open your 2600, you could get to it that way without having to completely disassemble the whole thing.

 

If you have a Krokodile or Harmony cart, this is a good ROM for adjusting color:

Frostbite on my 7800 console, new attempt  371,440

(When I was a kid and I had an Atari 2600 clone - DACTARI Video Game Console, I scored circa 375,000 points on Frostbite, as I can remember)

Thanks!  I'll have the wife give that a try.  I break anything I touch.  No harmony or krok, but we'll see what we see.

My Bailey thinks that this is the Polar Plunge for charity.  He keeps jumping into the water and giving my points away.
