  2. I bought one Feb 3, 2021 on eBay for $100. I looked for years but was always outbid up into the $150 to $250 range. My favorite game of all time.
  3. This joystick adapter is configurable from PC application to work on a variety of emulators: https://www.retronicdesign.com/en/ I also like this dual joystick adapter (store is currently closed due to COVID): http://blog.tynemouthsoftware.co.uk/ Archive of product page: http://web.archive.org/web/20200721213325/https://www.tindie.com/products/tynemouthsw/9-way-d-usb-joystick-adapter/

  8. Here’s another one just for the 3 part ACE series:
  9. There a good playlist of those commercials here:
  10. Can anyone reach their site? http://www.best-electronics-ca.com

  12. I bought one on recommendation from AtariAge members and it has worked great. No audio passes through unless there is a video signal is the only shortcoming I’ve noticed so far.
