  1. My compliments to the NWCGE crew for hosting another great event at the Holiday Inn in Seattle. The event was bigger and better, with the highlights being the championship and a presentation by 2600 designer and programmer Joe Decuir! There was tons of stuff for sale at great prices. Everyone had a blast and I even won a prize (it just figures I had to leave the championship early and Chris, who took my spot, went on to win the whole contest!).


    Once again, thanks a bunch and job well done guys. I look forward to next year!

  2. I want to strongly recommend this event to everyone in the Pacific Northwest. I have made the trip from Vancouver (3 hours) for the past few years and it is well worth it. Rick, Lee, and the others who organize this do a great job in putting on a really fun event and we should all support it. There is something for everyone so be sure to spread the word and I look forward to another great event!


    Lee - add a reservation at Dicks for one more!

  3. I encourage everyone in the Pacific Northwest to sign up - let others know in case they don't see this topic. The NWCGE group puts on a great event every year in Seattle - don't miss it!

  4. Well after many years I have finally completed my 7800 collection! This includes Klax, Sentinel and Pit Fighter courtesy of Lee @ Resqsoft (but not the monitor cart, diagnostic cart, or high score cart - btw where can I get these?).


    Now, time to focus on some other systems, after all its only money right?

  5. Hi Rick - unfortunately I missed this event - is it an annual event and how did it go?


    Speaking of NWCGE, when are you guys going to have your annual shin-dig, which is always fun. Last year it was in May I think.

  6. One of the best 5200 games no doubt - I can't think of any other I'd rather play for 2 hours straight. The dual joystick control is an ESSENTIAL aspect of the game - make your own holder if you have to.

  7. Zathras feedback - he may be improving as he has received many positives - here is the latest negatives summary:


    -A real jerk-I pay-he rips me off and leaves(-)! See his fb-95% and falling fast!

    Reply by zathras_eleven: Jerk bidder sent DEMANDS after (violating my TOS). -5% all from idiots like him!

    Follow-up by 07pwb: BEWARE he changes TOS after you pay! 'Always other guy's fault'-common theme!


    -Unusual # of instructions to follow.I paid promptly but got treated like a FRAUD

    Reply by zathras_eleven: Funny how so few people seem to have a problem following the CLEAR instructions!


    -beware... more interested in feedback than super fast payment

    Reply by zathras_eleven: Huh!?! Many e-mails/NO replies! Please grow up & honor your bids! BEWARE!

    Follow-up by gkess61: Funny how you are never wrong and everyone else should grow up. BEWARE!!!!!!


    (oh pity the naive buyer):

    -Received item quickly but seller mistakenly left neg. feedback. Did not respond

    Reply by zathras_eleven: No mistake! Many e-mails/NO replies! Please grow up & honor your bids! BEWARE!


    -Left negative feedback for me for no reason. Buyer BEWARE!!!

    Reply by zathras_eleven: Huh? No mistake! Many e-mails/NO replies/Please grow up & honor your bids/BEWARE


    MY FAVORITE - seller leaves and receives positive FB with these comments (to avoid retalitory feedback):

    -Items were perfect as described... Thank you!


    Reply by zathras_eleven: LOL! Bidder PO'ed because I didn't like him trying to run my life AND auctions!![/b]

  9. A quick note to advise that I saw the CC2 in action this weekend at the NWCGE event in Seattle and it was VERY impressive! All the games load quickly and smoothly, and the menu system was great. Please add my name to the list for the next round of orders - thanks!

  10. My First 7800 Experience

    So what planet have you been living on? Its a great system and definitely a keeper - lots of great old arcade ports and plays the 26ers too - now buy it quick before they sell it for $20 at a garage sale and you'l be glad you did.

  11. The prolines aren't great for prolonged use. I've got lots of 2600 sticks and the best has to be the Epyx 500XJ - if you have never tried it you owe it to yourself. I've never tried the pads - anyone got an extra set?

  12. This thread and the initiating post are totally off-base and inappropriate. Your concerns could have easily been raised personally with Jarrett instead of this mud slinging. Packrat and Jarrett are top-notch, just like AA. Quit this childish nonsense and do the right thing: apologize.
