  1. Thank you for these thorough suggestions! Those coaxial adapters come in super handy! I have a few and similarly I leave them connected to things then forget I did so lollll. Sweet! I do have composite cables, so I tried as you suggested. I get an image yayyyyy but it looks pretty bad, I'm guessing it's due to the fact that it's a cheap composite cable from the dollar store, so likely not much shielding in it. I'm getting a proper RF cable that should arrive later this week, so this should hold me over for now. I do miss Radio Shack at times like these. Many thanks!
  2. Hey everyone, I got an Intellivision II recently but it doesn't have the RF cable to hook it up to the TV. I do have other retro game systems but for all of them I'd have to open them up and take the RF cable out from the inside if I wanted to swap it into the Inty II. I've ordered a replacement cable that's compatible with the Inty II on eBay which should arrive later this week. I was wondering, if I wanted to connect the system to the TV in the meantime, is there a more common type of cable I can use?
  3. Awesome, thank you! I was going to look for a site that had the instructions online. This is great.
  4. I'm glad to hear there's a variety of titles, when I first heard of the Intellivision I just thought it mostly had sports games, but now after having seen a list of the library I see that it has a nice selection of different types of games. I also like how affordable many of the games are, including CIB! I was looking into the Flash Cart and noticed it wasn't available at the moment, hope there are more soon. Nice, I actually am expecting 3 of the Imagic games, they came highly recommended. Glad I'm getting manuals with everything, sounds like with some of them I would be a bit lost otherwise. Thank you for this list! I can sometimes be a bit of a lazy gamer aka I don't feel like reading instructions lol so this list will come in handy. I'm actually expecting some titles on this list, so awesome! I can't wait to play some Intellivision and see what it's all about.
  5. Just wanted to announce that I've taken the plunge, expecting my Intellivision and a few games soon. So psyched! Looking forward to exploring the Intellivision world.
  6. This is such an awesome time to be a 2600 gamer. I love what all the homebrew programmers have done with our beloved console.
  7. Awesome thread, I'm considering taking the plunge as well. 😀
  8. These are great suggestions! Wow I'm really excited to get quite a few of these. I'm glad there are so many homebrews to pick from, it's great that the 2600 is still very much alive. 😊
  9. Really enjoying playing the Atari 2600 on a regular basis again. :D

      Indeed, the sights and sounds of the good 'ol VCS still excite to this day! Check out the homebrews of the last 20 years too if you haven't gone down that path yet. So much fun yet to be had.   :)

      I agree! The VCS is truly a timeless console. It's aged beautifully without missing a beat. And while I love many consoles of that era, there's something special about the VCS. It's the one I easily enjoy the most. Funny you should bring up homebrews! I started a thread asking for recommendations since so many games in the store here look great. 😁 The only one I've have is Pacman 4K which I love. Look forward to adding quite a few more. 😊 Long live the VCS!

      ^save2600 gets it!!!

  10. Great, thank you. Yeah the power supply is still working, I used it on my 4 Switch Woody after the Heavy Sixer's colors got messed up. Good write up. The power supply I have is the one from the picture in the article which they say dates to 1981. Still working well though. I can't recall exactly but I got it new from Atari Sales I think a few years back. Also nice write up on the Heavy Sixer on that page too.
  11. It's been a really long time since I've bought a homebrew and there looks to be many great ones to choose from. Which ones do folks really like and highly recommend almost like must haves? Been playing my 2600 a lot lately, and would like to get it something brand new.
  12. Also random question, but just wanna rule out that I screwed anything up, it can use the same power supply as a 4 switch 2600 right?
  13. Thank you for that! This site looks great, full of info. I'll look into it.
  14. Now my Heavy Sixer has developed issues with the colors in games. The colors are all off and kinda flicker. I've attached photos. Any ideas what could've caused this? The system was working fine until now. I've had it for about 3 weeks.
