  1. I’m up for buying it CIB.
  2. bfstats


    First one, but I suspect there needs to be a little more space between the two words so it doesn’t look like BITCHES with an extra S. Reminds me of a ‘70’s computer manual.
  3. Bought a set of Atari 2600 books from this gentleman. Shipped promptly, well-packaged, great communication. VERY pleased with my purchase. Highly recommended AA seller!
  4. Bought two CX40 joysticks from masschamber. Promptly shipped, but one had a bad fire button. He replaced the necessary part at his expense. A gentleman and a scholar who stands by what he sells. HIGHLY recommended!
  5. What a pleasure! Bought two items from me as Christmas presents for her husband, fellow AA member JeremiahJT. Communication was great, payment was prompt, and follow-ups were a treat. And we should ALL be encouraged when we encounter an understanding significant other who buys us games, amiright?! I heartily recommend doing business with these good people.
  6. Nah, I’m good. Good Luck with your sale. To TrekMD, thanks for the info.
  7. That is SUPERIOR work, Sir! Much respect.
  8. How about FOIL labels like SpectraVideo, specifically Mangia?
  9. To Tavi and anyone monitoring this thread, here is a photo of the "VCS on a chip" taken directly from a rare 2600 Junior (not mine). As you can see, this is a 64-pin chip. The one in the TV-Boy is 48-pin.
  10. Not derailing at all, Tavi. I am intrigued by your question. Worth further research...
  11. Here is the board of my NICS Electronics TV-Boy, recently acquired, and works perfectly: I bought it because, to my knowledge, it has never been dumped. I have a suspicion that some of the ROMs in the chip are, perhaps, uniquely modified NTSC versions of PAL binaries. So, I'm anxious to run its contents through CloneSpy. Inquiries with the gentleman who had a similar challenge... you can read about his console dumps here: ...solved his problem with the help of a friend in Slovakia. Cool! But I was hoping to ship it to someone in the US (MUCH less costly) who has the necessary equipment and soldering skill. Here is what he told me needs to be done in order to fulfill my objective: "The ROM could be that DIL32 signed as NS-31(N) TV-BOY(127G). It could be a classic 512KB (4Mbit) mask ROM, so it should be de-soldered, inserted to a programmer with 27C040 support and dumped, then re-soldered onto the board." So, anyone monitoring this Forum live closer to Maryland than Slovakia, have the ability to solder, have the equipment mentioned above and the ability to use it, AND have the inclination to take this on and return the TV-Boy to me in full working order along with the dumped file? Not asking much, am I?! I will pay for shipping in both directions, of course, and compensation can be discussed. I'm prepared to ship it to Slovakia if necessary, but am hoping to find a local solution to save on the overall cost. The separated binaries will be shared with the community if any are previously undiscovered. Please advise...
