It is technically called a "booklet" in printing terms. It's a 12-page catalog of games that will be out soon (one of the games, Rebooteroids, is already in the store). Boxes are currently being printed, and I'll be placing an order for the manuals soon.
None of the games currently sold in the AtariAge Store are using a board where you could add a POKEY chip. I will be adding two new games that require the POKEY:
- Super Circus AtariAge
- Bentley Bear's Crystal Quest
These games require a POKEY chip for audio.
I also plan on adding POKEY versions of Beef Drop and Pac-Man Collection to the store. Additionally, once Froggie enters the store, it will have a POKEY version as an option. These three games you will only be able to purchase in a POKEY flavor if you first send me one or more POKEY chips or Ballblazer carts. I simply do not have enough POKEY chips to make a large number of POKEY games.
Once I exhaust my supply of POKEY chips, Super Circus AtariAge and Bentley Bear will also require you to send in POKEYs or Ballblazers in order to receive a copy of the game.
Are you going to threaten banning all those that keep insulting me all the time, too ? Just want to hear an honest answer, that's all.
First, two wrongs don't make a right. Second, I only see people helping or asking legitimate questions in this thread, so please point out the posts where people are insulting you in a similar fashion to what you're doing.
Well I have them all on my site, so if Atari Age would like to use them they are more than welcome to. I got them from someone here on the forums and just figured I would make it easily accessible in a page like that
A zip file of all the 2600 PDFs would be useful. I could pretty easily add a PDF download for each of these manuals from their respective entries in the database. Extracting the images and making them viewable alongside other manuals might take a bit more work.
I see it from time to time too. Also seems to be a glitch where "no new content" shows when new members have joined. In other words, instead of new content, you get a list of new members. Hit 'View New Content' again or refresh, then the new topics will appear afterwards. This glitch (or accidental non-correlated feature) has been going on for years now.
The "View New Content" is context-sensitive, depending where you are in the site. If you're in the Messenger or viewing a member profile and you hit "View New Content", it'll show a list of members. This is very likely why you are seeing "View New Content" displaying members. The search is the same way -- if you're in the Messenger or viewing a member profile and you do a search, it will search members instead of the forums. Not a very good design, to be sure. Now that you know that, hopefully this will be helpful information.
