    Popeye 7800

    YES!!! I will INDEED check it out and let not only you but everyone else know what I think of it too!!!
  2. Any chance for an 8-bit computer version so XL/XE/XEGS owners can play it too??? They could use the fire-button mode like on Berzerk or Frenzy. BTW, fantastic work so far Ryan, making us Atarians here in the Great Northwest look good, I absolutely love the "Intellidiscs" title font with the color-shifting/scrolling and can't wait to see what the end result is gonna be like!!!

    Glad I got mine back in October, already 2600 systems are going for a higher price more than ever, indeed classic gaming is alive and well, mainly because of all of the dedicated programmers who make the mojo happen, who would ever have thought 1980s gaming systems would become just as huge now as they were back then!!!

    @darryl1970 I love the way it's all coming along, well done, 2 updates in one day!!! It just shows how much passion you have for your work. Some of us WISH we had the same. BRAVO!!!
  5. Thanks Bob, I was only using the P2 (2nd player version , the one WITHOUT the start/rewind/options, etc. buttons) sticks on her, so either the OG versions or perhaps my WICO stick might work instead???
  6. I have to admit that I almost OVER-salivate whenever I see a WIP that not only looks great but plays great as well, and then come up with all of these "over the top" expectations of what the finished game should look like. Starting tonight I'll just let the games play out from the eyes of the very guy who is putting them together rather than sound demanding over what it could/should be. Note that I also don't come through on a keyboard in the same way than as if I were to talk to a person either face-to-face or over the phone, so my texted quotes may often get misinterpreted. It's one thing to come up with an idea for a fix, like for the 5200 version of Asteroids when it comes to its controls, but it's another to wrongfully influence someone with ideas that a programmer just may not have in mind.
  7. Problem (somewhat) solved, I just decided "F" it and went through my stockpile of CX24 sticks and found one that has 100% working fire buttons and directional contacts and went with it, No problems for now, I guess it just might be that 2600 sticks behave somewhat differently than 7800 sticks do on a ProSystem. It seems like the single fire button on a 2600 acts as the alternate ("B") fire button rather than the main ("A") fire button. Oh well, Atari-wise, once I get my income tax refund (and one for a few thousand bucks at that too!) I intend to do a huge Atari order, first ordering 2 modded CX24 7800 sticks and one gold-modded CX52 5200 one (I have one already) and a pair of 12 ft. RCA-to-PAL antenna Euro game cords from Best (for my RF-to-HDMI converter and my newly-obtained RF-to-composite converter, its sister unit) and then ordering a molded 3-D printed CX24 twin controller holder to go with the 5200 one I have had since 1983. and then it's just search until I can find a Redemption 5200 2600 adapter to go with the 7800 one I have that I use with her.
  8. No I was just saying that this is "too good", as a compliment, not a complaint, but I'm sure you already knew that.
  9. Thanks. And yes but Galaxian is just too playable to be a "completely unfinished WIP", much like @splendidnut's Chaotic Grill! was for the 2600 when it came out back in 2019. Genius! Indeed Bob has yet another winner on his hands already.
  10. Just tried both the new upload and also the one from 1/19/21, the one I was talking about. Worked fine on the Concerto menu, selecting the game was no problem, but, no dice though after that (once the game is dialed in, no start, no missiles, etc.).
  11. This one: https://atariage.com/forums/topic/315930-you-guys-can-thank-uniwars-for-this-one-galaxian/?do=findComment&comment=4729959 I just downloaded the newest one, I'll try it and see what happens.
  12. Cool, I'll check the difficulty switches and the game of issue was Galaxian, I can't fire any missiles or start the game (I had to use the reset button on the console) using the fire button, would switching the difficulty switch do the trick?
  13. I am having issues with the CX24 ProLine controller not being able to move right or for most of the pop-o-matic button contacts not working when they need to and wanted to use my dependable CX40 joystick from my old Flashback 9 instead with my 7800 and Concerto. She worked fine through the Concerto menu but when I went to play the selected game itself the fire button would not work, is there an adapter that will allow 2600 controllers (like the CX30 paddle controllers and the CX22 and CX80 trak-balls as well as all 2600-compatible joysticks) to work properly with the 7800 or do I have to put up with the ProLine and its issues???
  14. Great. Post up an .xex or a rom of it do we can play it too, please.
