  1. Bought a few Intellivision carts from him. They were well packaged and arrived quickly. Solid communication - great guy to deal with. E.
  2. We worked out a small deal for a couple of Intellivision carts. Everything went smoothly - great prices, well packaged. E
  3. I wish that I could write that my deal with CrimsonAtari went well. Unfortunately it didn't and I would strongly caution anyone who is buying something from him to make sure that you are getting what you are expecting and that he knows what he is sending you. I have been holding off on this feedback for almost two weeks because were in contact fairly regularly and, after a few messages back and forth, we had a solution worked out (basically a partial refund) but, since he has been "off-grid" for the last few days and hasn't responded to messages, I have had to start things with paypal and I figure it's probably important to let other people know what happened. ** We made a deal for an Atari 7800 console package and three games that he said - directly in a PM - were for the 7800 - namely Xenophobe, Titlematch Pro Wrestling and TomCat F-14. The package arrived on July 5th and there was no proline controller and two of the three games were the 2600 versions. The package contained a standard 2600 controller and an aftermarket controller that, while not all that important to me, didn't work properly (it only went "up"). Also, for what it's worth, the power switch on the 7800 console works intermittently - sometimes it takes four presses to get the power to light up, sometimes the minute you press the button it lights up and it then turns itself off. I recognize that this is 30+ year-old technology but he didn't make any mention of these problems when we were discussing the deal. I have a variety of messages where he discusses what went wrong and I suppose I could go into more detail if somebody wanted to send me a PM. The bottom line is that he has admitted that he sent me the wrong games and that he should have included a proline controller. In order to settle things up, we agreed upon an amount for a partial refund. Like I said at the beginning, it's been about a week since he agreed to the refund and he hasn't been on the board since. I am glad that I did not "gift" him the payment and, although I would have rather not written this message or had to get in touch with PayPal, I feel that I have to let other people know what happened. I've done lots of deals at Atariage over the last five or six years and this is the only time that something like this has happened to me. E.
  4. Thanks for the info - I appreciate it. I have covered the windows - yeah, I didn't actually think it was anything valuable and, when all was said and done, I think I paid about $20 for the cart, chips and about 10 other commons but it was such a unique-looking object that I had to pick it up. I'm pretty sure that the games are straight copies. E.
  5. I stumbled upon this at a flea market today - I have no idea what it is although I suspect that it is some sort of piracy device ... having said this, it strikes me as a fairly elaborate way to steal a game. Anyway, it works - the chips have stuff like pitfall, bezerk, frogger, missile command, Kaboom! and a couple of other ones that I can't remember. One chip has a couple of different games on it. Throwing the switches at the top gives me access to a different game. There are lots of settings where I get strange sounds and blasts of colour (like what you get when you are "frying" a machine). If anybody has any insight into what this is, I'd appreciate knowing. E.
  6. I received one of his modded 7800 and I'm quite happy with it. The package was sent quickly and the unit was well packaged. E.
  7. After a long time of being "out of the collecting game," a 7800 was passed on to me. I used to collect for the system but passed on my system and all my 7800 carts a while ago. I just picked up Ms. Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., Asteroids, Karateka, Food Fight, One on One, Robotron and Pole Position II. I'm only interested in loose carts (probably only commons, too) only and, as I'm in Canada, would like to pack as many as possible into a single shipment. If you have a bunch that are sitting around (I'm not too concerned about labels, either) please drop me a line with what you have and how much you'd like for them Many thanks Dave
  8. Received the stuff that he sent out. It was in great condition, well packaged and arrived really quickly. Great guy to deal with. Thanks, Allan.
  9. Hi Guys ... I guess I'm not really used to all of this and I thought doing this would be easier than it actually turned out to be. I'm feeling overwhelmed by the PMs and requests and the such and, as there really is no pressing need on my part to sell these things, I think I'm just going to shove them back in the cupboard. I apologize to anybody who is feeling that I wasn't treating them fairly but, for what it's worth, I was genuinely doing my best to be fair to people. I suppose I should kill the pictures ... if somebody with power can lock the thread / delete the thread, I'd appreciate it. E.
  10. I thought this several years ago and did the same thing, oh the regret! In the last 9 months or so I've picked 2600 collecting back up, plus nearly completed a 7800 collection which I never had before. You have some very nice looking carts there and I wish you luck with your sale, I actually wish I had more cash right now. Yeah - I went to bed feeling fine about this decision and then, in the cold light of morning, started to rethink my convictions. I'm going to go through with it for a little while though and see if decent arrangements can be worked out. ---> Jeremy ... Thanks for the kind words!
  11. I'm compressing my collecting habits and I think I'm ready to move away from the 2600. I've attached photos of the carts (I believe all of the ones in the photos are R5 or higher ... although there probably are a couple of 4s and 3s). I've also realized that I didn't exactly have a steady hand when I took a couple of the shots but I don't want to drag out all the carts again. If there are ones that you want better pictures of - i.e. the Condor Attack - let me know and I'll take specific shots. I've tried to have a front label and top label shot for each cart - obviously some labels are in better condition than others. I'll listen to offers for the next little while and then, if / when some of the stuff moves, I'll attach prices to whatever is left. I'll try to answer any questions - although one of the things to keep in mind is that this stuff is coming from Canada so the shipping will be a little higher than U.S. folks are used to. Also, I have the standard complement of R1-R4 stuff, too if there is any interest in any of that stuff. E.
  12. I've been meaning to post this for a little while now. 5-11 did a great video-out mod on my colecovision. I finally (finally!) have a stable CV.
  13. I am somewhat hesitant to post this because there are a number of things that probably make it a transaction that is too difficult to bother with. These are: 1. The items would be coming from Ontario, Canada (just outside Toronto) 2. I want to get rid of all this stuff in one shot - I'm not using it but I don't want bits and pieces hanging around. (This isn't a "fire sale" - I'd rather somebody make use of it but it's easy enough to box the whole thing up and forget about it for a few years.) 3. 5200s are heavy. Shipping costs would suck. Anyway - here's the lot. If you're interested in it as a whole, drop me a PM with an offer. I can provide pictures if need be. System Stuff: 2 5200 consoles (One 2 port and one 4 port with a power mod) & two power adaptors. 1 Old School Gamer rebuilt controller (read: one that actually works) 1 Redemption controller (Atari Age product, discontinued, lets you use your 2600 sticks with the 5200) 2600 Adaptor (play 2600 carts on the 5200) Atarimax USB multicart Games (loose) Astro Chase Baseball Berzerk Blue Print Centipede Congo Bongo Countermeasure Defender Dig Dug Football Frogger Galaxian Joust Jungle Hunt Kaboom! Kangaroo Mario Brothers Miner 2049er Missile Command Moon Patrol Ms. Pac-Man Pac-Man Pengo Pole Position Popeye Q*bert Qix River Raid Soccer Space Dungeon Space Invaders Space Shuttle Star Raiders Star Trek Super Breakout Tennis Vanguard Zenji Zone Ranger There are assorted manuals & overlays and - possibly - a couple of boxed commons, too.
  14. Strange to see this topic pop up - I've actually just finished rebuilding my OS 9 home music studio from the late 90s on a Blue & White G3. I actually thought about "going Beige" for the project because that's what I had in the 90s but I decided that I liked the look of the B&W better. For what it's worth, despite OS9's klunkieness (and it is klunky), I've enjoyed pulling out the rack gear again and trying to remember how Digital Performer works. E.
  15. Hi there ... I'm looking for a cartridge version of Lode Runner. If you have one available, drop me a PM with a price or with your interests. I'm looking for a loose cart. I have a decent stack of 8bit and 2600 stuff (and, for whatever it's worth, some stuff for other systems) to trade. Thanks E.
