If my ColecoVision has sccrambled video when playing a ColecoVision game, but plays 2600 games just fine through the Atari Converter the problem is probably with the notorious power switch, correct?

    When atari attachment is install, it bypass the CV hardware completely. Firmly reinsert the power cord, so the -5, +5 voltage are connected otherwise the VRAM get wiped.

Windows 10 tablets are pretty fun.

    Is there any low-priced model that you all can recommend? I like to get one from Best Buy because I went through 2 Android tablets that died on me. I like using Win 10 and have no problem getting an Android emulator for apps. I just want to get one for web browsing, ebooks & playing Win 10 games...

    The NuVision one referenced should be fine and comes in 8 inch or 10 inch. 8 inch is best if you want to use it in bed for games or Netflix.

    Yeah, I've been liking the 2017 NuVision one. Haven't played any games on it, but it's been working well for web browsing, reading manga, connects to the NAS alright, and it's even done okay at playing 10-bit 1080p anime files. Pretty good battery life so far. Haven't had to charge it in the middle of the day yet, just have to plug it in at night.

My older brother used to have a PC game that I would play when I was a little kid, and I've been trying to figure out what it was for YEARS now. My brother was in town this week, so a few days ago we embarked on a mission of identification and we eventually figured out that the game was Quest for Glory V. And what do you know, I already own Quest for Glory 1-5 on GOG, but never downloaded them. Heh.

    You're a lucky guy to experience these anew. This is my favorite series ever.

Just upgraded to Windows 8.1 Pro. Took a while, but I got everything set up to be exactly like I had it in Windows 7.

    Cool! I hate the Windows 8 setup.

    Nice. Good to know you can do that. I can't stand the 8 layout and would rather use 7 until the next thing comes along. Talk about trying to re-invent the wheel...

    I was completely happy with 7, but the slight efficiency improvements and the more thorough Task Manager finally convinced me to upgrade.
    If either of you ever go with Windows 8.1 in the future definitely download Classic Shell to bring back the Start Menu. In 8.1 you can also set up your computer to go straight to the Desktop, so you'll never have to even see the Start Screen if you don't want to.

I bought Halo for the PC the other day. Having only ever played it on the XBOX, the control scheme on the PC felt really weird at first, but I'm fast becoming used to it. Sniping is so much easier with a mouse.

    Halo was the reason I return my original xbox alone with that game

Can't find my copy of Warcraft II. I have been relegated to playing Warcraft III.

    That's a shame!!! :( Warcraft II is SO MUCH better than III.

    I grew up playing Warcraft II, and I have a lot of fond memories of it.
    Today was my first time playing Warcraft III, and I'm finding it definitely doesn't have the charm of II.

    Yeah I never liked the addition of heroes. It changed the dynamic of the game too much.
