Hello all

I just got Coleco Telstar Arcade console ( buddy at work)
However there was no Ac adapter ( can find anything on the underside)

Would anyone know if a Atari Adapter ( 2600 ) would work?

Do you have pics of the cart? I've never seen one unless it's connected to the console. How does it fit in there? :?

Neat find btw. :)

Thanks. A google search brings this thread, with pics of the tops & bottoms of the carts: http://atariage.com/...tridge-console/

Out of curiosity, has anyone tried making a homebrew for one of these or the PC-50x systems? Could someone put a new microcontroler in a cart to make their own games?

I had one of those, and I'm not sure the effort to make a "game" for it would be time well spent. I guess one could try to make break out or a rudimentary space invader type thing, but there's not much to work with. I got a cool $100 for the first person to port Doom to it.
