But TBH .. the reasons for said tree shaking are pretty f#&king disgracefull!  I hope their little island ends up being coconut free and barren!

Don't know if this helps your task.

 

Rom Hunter @ Atarimania has arguably the most complete and sorted 2600 rom collection out there.  Save you some time maybe.  Oh ... and I use arguably very lightly  ;)

#4152757 Season 8 ~ Week 5 ~ Track N Field

Posted by Spriggy on Thu Nov 8, 2018 12:21 AM

Track & Field - Game 1 B/B (Arcade)

70,490

Played on: Retropie/cx40 via DB9 adapter/NTSC Rom

My top 5 arcade games of all time.  Actually built a replica T&F cocktail cabinet years ago.  Gr8 fun.  BUT .. never played it on the 2600  :skull: .  Gr8 port.  Only played about 7-8 times to post the score.  Quite amazing how relatively close it feels to the arcade based on the consoles ability.  Felt like I'd played it before!  Deteacher's earlier tip is spot on.  Short shrows.  I clamp the cx40 to the carpet with my left hand (using thumb and index finger), on the bottom left corner of the stick, and short throw wiggle the stick right at the tip.  I press the button with my middle left finger.  It's not my wiggle hand that is sore, but my left clamp hand!?  Some good scores getting posted.

#4145614 The Raspberry Pi and Retropie discussion thread

Posted by Spriggy on Mon Oct 29, 2018 8:10 PM

So far, I've scraped my NES, MAME, and Game Gear sets. The next big scrape will be the SNES. Also, if I add a game, will it rescrape that set, or go for the added game?

 

The scrapper will check your current set from the beginning.  If the rom data has already been downloaded, it will skip to the next rom and check.  It probably cycles through the roms at 1 sec per rom or so (if the rom data has already been downloaded).  If it gets to a new rom, it should download the data just for that rom then conintue its cycle check.  Maybe a few minutes on a large rom collection.

Hard to tell on the pic, but looks like your 2 cart slot dust protector tabs have been broken off.  They push into the 2600 tab slots, opening up the systems little dust protector flap.  Try turning your 2600 upside down and then carefully wiggle the cart in.  Over the years, the little mechanism that opens the dust cover becomes weak and can be opened by turning the system upside down, as aforementioned.

But if I was to join the other sheep and wanted to talk trash about people, I would be accepted with open arms all day long.

His left eye (from someone looking at him) looks like there's some growth or eye rot he's covering up.  Maybe he's one of those alien lizard overlords in disguise.

 

Hah.  Was waiting for him to do this .....
