    Atari 400

    I bought my second one immediately after Lotharek announced the 400 Incognito as "coming soon". It's sitting waiting in eager anticipation.

    I want to know how the seller expects to ship all of that for only $14.99?!?
  3. Nope. Those two games are still the 400/800 only versions. They don't work on my 800XL.
  4. I just want to point out that I use the Seagull 78 with a 2.4ghz 8bitdo Genesis style pad for some great wireless 7800 gameplay. https://www.amazon.com/8Bitdo-Wireless-Gamepad-Original-Genesis-Drive/dp/B07HB1XFQW/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=8bitdo+genesis&qid=1625704256&sprefix=8bitdo+ge&sr=8-3
  5. Would the differences likely be with the cartridges themselves or could the method used for the dumping process cause these differences? My cartridge seems to be one of the initial run of 50 of the Synapse carts. I used an "AtariMax MaxFlash USB Programmer" cartridge to dump it.
  6. I must have used the wrong setting on my initial attempt. I just tried it again as a 512K MegaCart and it dumped right away. My cartridge seems to be exactly the same as the one that tjlazer dumped. Synapse SunMark Megacart.car
  7. If I may ask, what did you use to dump them? What cart type/banking scheme too? I am definitely going to download yours but would still like to see if I can dump my own as well. Thanks.
  8. I had a couple of these but traded them off a few years ago, except for my all Synapse games one. @Mclaneinc - I tried briefly to dump my SunMark Synapse cart but didn't have much luck the first couple of attempts so I gave up rather quickly. I meant to get back to it at some point but of course haven't yet. I need to remember to give it another try soon. Does anyone have any idea what cart type/banking scheme I should try with it? I *think* that I tried it as a Megacart type but wasn't successful. Although, like I said, I really put very little time into it.
  9. Hey, I remember reading a FB post about this!
  10. I remember seeing these knockoff Gemsticks quite often back in the day but never actually purchased one. This one was on eBay for a decent(ish) price so I thought, "What the heck...". It turns out to be kind of cheap feeling in the hands but yet nice and responsive. Not a terrible controller overall. Still, it'll probably eventually end up in the box with all of the other oddball Atari controllers and won't ever see much use.
  11. This is fantastic news! I have been checking the ordering site at least 2 or three times a week since the winter. However, now the question arises whether I should order as soon as the availability open up *or* if I should wait just a little longer until the HOKEY chips are ready to go? Maybe a fully populated cartridge would be best? I honestly do have a spare POKEY chip sitting around but I am probably more interested in having the new HOKEY technology installed, just cause.
  12. As far as I can remember, Roklan's "Wizard Of Wor" cartridge should work on a XL or XE system. "Gorf" won't but "WOW" should. That said, you can use the "Ultra Translator" program to hot-swap OSb only cartridges and use them on XL/XE systems. Video61 sells a version of "Ultra Translator" on cartridge but the attached ATR will work equally well. It takes a bit of practice to learn the precise angle of how to insert the cartridge (start with it tilted ever so slightly to the right and then insert it in one swift motion) but the translator program does work. Ultra Translator 2.0.atr
  13. I am personally responsible for the destruction of no less than three MMU chips.
  14. FYI, "Food Fight" is on the Evercade Atari Cartridge 1. https://www.amazon.com/Evercade-Atari-Cartridge-1-Electronic-Games/dp/B07XDB9FZT/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=evercade+atari&qid=1623111959&sr=8-4
  15. You know, I don't know if I've ever actually played a Flashback 1. I think that I skipped on it *because* of the fact that I knew that the games were recreations rather than the origional roms themselves. Now this thread has me wondering how "Food Fight" actually plays on that system? Maybe I should search one out after all this time to give it a try.
