  1. AH ha! Mystery absolutely solved. Thank you! It was a fairly cheap lot so I don't mind. I just have 4 doubles now if anyone is interested.
  2. Recently acquired this very unusual CBS ColecoVision Cart of Donkey Kong Jr. I've played it a bit and cannot find, at first glance, any strange characteristics in the gameplay that would lead me to believe this is a prototype. But the cart itself is very odd. It has no label and does not appear to have ever had a standard label (no glue or paper residue at all) and has just one circular CBS Colecovision metallic foil label that is definitely not home made, and appears to be as old as the cart itself, leading me to believe it was placed there at the time of manufacture. This may be very mundane and experts probably have seen these before, but can someone shed any light onto this for me? Thank you!
  3. Any chance for bulk discounts on those RCA Studio 2 boxes? I need 8-10!
  4. This says it's a new update, but the version number is the same as the previous update. Also, I thought new updates were supposed to be installable from the USB drive? I can't seem to get it to see this new FW from the USB drive.
  5. It just does nothing from what I can tell. I can’t even navigate the Main UI.
  6. Did you try the pairing technique? You’re supposed to be able to pair the controller by holding UP+Fire while putting batteries in. Maybe it just needs to be unpaired from the FB9 and paired to the FBX?
  7. Yeah, I don’t know if I’d have the soldering dexterity to do that. Those are very tiny and my eyesight and hand control aren’t what they used to be.
  8. Check your power supply. You may want to try a different one. Sounds like a power problem to me.
  9. You can. There are 4 solder pads as shown in the photo circled in red. I am trying to determine which hole corresponds to which USB wire. I’d rather have this hard wired and tucked away inside the unit than use a Y cable.
  10. Sorry, bumping this...I attempted to "go for it", and destroyed my USB stick. It DID get the LED lit up...I probably destroyed it before I got the power the right way round. Just need to know which leads are which... 5V, GND, Data + and Data -. Is there a way to figure this out by using a multimeter, or some other way that won't destroy my USB stick if I get the wires wrong? ANy help is greatly appreciated! I want to install my USB stick internally and not use that Y cable. Thanks!
  11. You can do this in a batch at the command line. There are various ways. Just google "Remove spaces in filenames command line"
  12. Be sure your filenames do NOT contain any spaces! They will appear in your ROM list but will not load.
  13. I’ve been having fairly good luck with the paddles on my FBX. Be sure your TV is in game mode. Granted, nothing will ever be as 1:1 as an original Atari 2600 on a CRT. But I think the FBX is a very good miniature stand-in.
  14. I believe you're stuck powering on and off, unfortunately. Just like the good old days!
