  1. Thanks. I'll post a video in the near future. Glen Larsen created Battlestar Galactica. The Cylons had a red eye that moved back and forth. Scanning. He also created Knight Rider and the Trans Am driven by Michael Knight, known as KITT (The Knight Industries Two Thousand), also had a similar moving eye. Somewhere along the way these became known as Larsen Scanners.
  2. One night, admittedly after a few glasses of wine, I held a sheet of plywood up to the side of my Defender cab and drew it's profile. I chopped off the back 12 inches or so and simplified the front. Some time later this Raspberry Pi based cabinet came to life. It has a trackball, spinner and support for 2 players. Lots of fun to play. I can (of course) play 2600 (and other systems) games on it too. Behind the lexan marquee is a Larsen scanner.
  3. If I remember correctly, the Atari VCS was designed to play Combat.
  4. I'm no pro, but why are you guys referring to them as 'rectifier diodes'? Are they not just regular old diodes used in a rectification circuit?
  5. I've had a few different printers over the years. These days I'm running Prussa MK3s and they are reliable workhorses. They do cost more but work great period.
  6. Although I had a fairly large collection at one time, I've sold off most of it and settled on the VCS and XLs as my favorites. I definitely recommend having a 2600 and an 800XL. The 2600 has fun multiplayer titles that use a variety of controllers. Combat, Indy 500, Video Olympics, Warlords, etc.
  7. Got my Harmony Encore really fast. Thank's so much guys. Feels great to have multiple Harmony carts before the end of the world ... !
  8. I have enjoyed this thread for a long time. It's fascinating to see what the 8 bit Atari computers can do graphically. Imagine how proud we would have been in the 80s with these amazing images? Now 100 pages in size... amazing!
