I'd be amazed if it was even turned into a bong.

They would gain alot more backers with a pack-in bong


In Topic: Displaying / leaving a 2600 powered on for a very long time

There is no guarantee with such old hardware and id say the 2600 would crap out before the CRT. I had wrote a very simple "screensaver" for kicks that actually kinda stresses the hardware. It's not overly intensive however it's always calculating and turning playfield pixels on and off every 60 frames. Was basically a novelty project

Yeah a one stop shop for 2600 and 7800 development will definitely bridge the gap for 7800 developing. A familiar environment when learning something new is always welcome.

As Nukey Shay said it depends on how the game was programed. If the switch condition is outside the main game loop then the switches will do nothing until reset ect.
