  1. With Alien Invasion you can turn it down on the console by pressing 3. I agree though the system is really loud. I wish they had included a sound off/on switch like the RCA Studio II or at least a way to adjust the volume. I avoid playing it at night since it's so loud.
  2. Oh awesome! Definitely let me know. I'll be on the lookout for a Studio II in the meantime.
  3. A few years back I bought the RCA Studio II multi-cart which came with the AV mod for the RCA Studio II. I have no technical skills whatsoever, so I was wondering, if I were to buy a spare RCA Studio II console, would someone here be willing to install the mod for me? I would send the console and mod components to you, of course I would also pay for shipping both ways as well as parts and labor, just name your price. Let me know and I'll start hunting down a Studio II on eBay as I'd like to keep my current unit in original form.
  4. Omg this makes me want to get a Jaguar again. Had one back in the day.
  5. Thank you for this! Sorry for my super late reply.
  6. Oh I do have one more question. I have been turning off the console, unplugging the power supply and removing the multicart after I'm done. But I was wondering, would it be okay to just leave the multi-cart in the console? I don't have any original carts yet so I'm not going to be plugging in any other carts any time soon. But I wanted to check in and see if there is any potential to do damage by doing that given the age of the console. Thank you!
  7. Connected the jumper to the two pins to the left and OMG it works so far!!!!!!!! Yayyyy!!! I'm so excited. I've been waiting for years to play games like Space Invaders on the RCA S2. Thank you everyone!!!! :-D :-D
  8. Thank you! And no worries, I decided it would only be fair that I bother everyone else on the thread and not just you. Thank you for the tip on the serial number as I have no clue how to determine which board I have. Also what does the jumper look like? I'm just wondering if it's something that'll be obvious to me when I open it or if I need to poke around. I'll try the RAM test a few times, did it about twice and it passed each time, all the tests seemed fine. The image is great actually, even on an LCD, crystal clear. And it is odd that it's inconsistent. I can play Pac-Man fine, he moves in all directions, no glitches, yet Space Invaders without fail the ship just doesn't move, unless I wipe the contacts with alcohol or an air can on the cartridge port, then it moves a bit and locks up again. But it's odd that other games are fine. I'll open it up and see what I cna do with my limited skills.
  9. Ah okay. So I'll take the cart out of the case and see about these jumpers. And I'll open up the console to see if I can determine which board I have. Thanks for your help!
  10. Is the jumper something on the multicart that I would adjust or inside the console itself? Not very tech savvy.
  11. I actually did once I realized that the multi cart came with all these diagnostics. It passed the RAM test as well as all the others so I'm not sure what the issue is.
  12. It's odd to me as well. I just tried it and the ship in Invaders won't move at all, but it does fire. An odd pattern I've noticed is that if I spray the cartridge port with an air can and then put the multicart in and power it up, the ship does move left and right and works fine for maybe under a minute before the ship slowly stops responding. I was wondering if it was something buggy with my console or perhaps an issue with the cartridge port. From the looks of things there might be hair and other debris deep inside that I'm not reaching. I was thinking of acquiring another console in the future and comparing.
  13. I'm noticing some glitches with my console. In Space Invaders, I can't move left or right. I cleaned the cartridge port contacts several times with an air can. Initially right after booting it up, I could move the ship left or right. But slowly it stopped being able to move. In Kaboom I can move left or right but there are moments where it's sluggish. Berserk seems to crash after a while. Pac-Man works flawlessly. Is something up with my unit?
  14. Originally I was supposed to receive my box yesterday - I started tracking it quite often once I saw that folks on here started receiving theirs. And then it was delayed. So it arrived this afternoon, and I have to say that it was well worth the anticipation that built up due to the additional wait! The box looks AMAZING! You did such a GREAT job with it. I love how shiny and new it looks yet how classic and retro it feels. It feels as if it were 1977 and I had just bought one of the original games for the first time. It blends in nicely with the originals. Now I want to collect more original boxed games. Well done! Also I took a chance and bought an as-is console and eBay and fortunately it works! I've been able to finally play the multicart too and absolutely LOVE it! Really brings the RCA S2 to life!
  15. Not sure if I can afford one, but I'd like to buy an RCA Studio II console with at least 1 game since I just received my multi-cart, and of course now I want to play it. Send me a private message if you have one you'd like to sell. Thanks for looking.
