#4068573 Intellivision Ebay Roundup

I didn't get them, but I'm not talking about it anyway.  Nope.  This post is not talking about it.




#4064609 System changer

Posted by KylJoy on Fri Jul 6, 2018 9:37 PM

You probably already know this, but there are Mattel and Intellivision Inc variants of many of these. I have most of the titles boxed (loose Star Strike), but I have no idea which variants I have (or which I'm missing). Actually, I don't think I have the box/manual for Deadly Discs either. Time to take inventory...

 

Are we talking about these:

The ones shown are the original release of each one.  I've also seen them released by "Telegames USA".  Here's an example:

#4064428 Intellivision Entertainment launching a NEW Intellivision console

Posted by KylJoy on Fri Jul 6, 2018 4:31 PM

How about skip the system altogether....
 
Make the controllers and emulator and the planned software etc.  For the XBOX or PS4.
 
Add the Download feature into the emulation software.
 
Okay, I really want a system.  But to be commercially successful, this may be the proper route?


I'm on board - cartridge port or not.  I support the Intellivision lifestyle.  I'm drinking a mojito right now.  Seriously.  :)

 

But this is exactly why I think a cart port makes a LOT of sense when it comes to being a successor to the original Intellivision. Without it, why not do as 1980gamer suggests and release the controllers and emulators that work on PC, Xbox One, PS4, etc. and be done with it. I already have awesome Intellivision consoles, some modded with RGB, that play my originals and homebrews GREAT on old TVs or brand new HDTVs. I know, I know... I am not THE market.  I'm part of the 1% (different 1%) and I would really love some awesome touchscreen (to show the overlays) controllers with a real physical disc and side buttons to use with my emulators.  Heck, I bet that a cart adapter, if released later, could be made to work on ANY USB enabled system with enough horsepower and smarts to read the carts (PC, Xbox, PS, etc.)

 

Not intending to go negative here.  I am excited about this.

* What is a fair price to you hardcore Intellivision fans if there is NEVER a cartridge port adapter?
* What is a fair price to you hardcore Intellivision fans if there is?


Never a cart port? I'd still go $150 for a super-awesome system that is a true Intellivision successor.
I'd easily go $200 for the perfect system with a cart port that worked with my flash carts.

Maybe I'm way off here. Seems about right to me, though. But it has to SCREAM Intellivision.

I know it isn't part of the initial release and Tommy T. said that it would have to be made by a third party, but I REALLY want a cartridge port to use my flash carts with homebrews, hacks, demos, etc. on them.  Even if the games are available in the "store", I already bought them... twice - Once as carts and again as ROMs when available.




#4063846 We need Crazy Climber on Intellivision!

Posted by KylJoy on Thu Jul 5, 2018 7:37 PM

Someone make this!  We could use the two controllers side by side, one in each hand.  It would be great.  I love that game and I love the Intellivision so, hey...  this has to happen!  :)

 

And why isn't Wizard of Wor completed yet?  You guys are slackin'.  LOL




#4055654 Astro Invader coming soon for the Intellivision

All I can say about this release is, "WOW!"

 

Beautiful artwork.  AWESOME game play.  This is my new favorite Intellivision game.  It's like the original arcade game was made for this platform.  Amazing.  Congratulations on this.

#4033760 Soulbuster's Non-Variant List of Homebrew Games Released

Posted by KylJoy on Thu May 24, 2018 12:24 PM

Can someone tell me the reason that something cannot be listed? I get it if it is just a temporary secret. Is that it? If so, where can I be pointed to acquire this mysterious secret item, or, realize that I already have it?


#4030712 Advice needed on repairing a motherboard

Posted by KylJoy on Sat May 19, 2018 1:09 PM

Trying to repair this board is mainly just an interesting project, and I'm learning things along the way.

 

Repairing for fun and learning is GREAT!  Sure, you can buy another one.  But saving THE ONE is GREAT FUN and INCREDIBLY satisfying.
