  1. Welcome to round fourteen of this 5200 HSC season! Super Pac-man won the poll by a single vote. Play using the default settings. Emulation is fine, as are custom controls. Pics preferred, but not required except for HSC wins and records. The current record was set by Chris-in-NJ - 150,590 points. Bust it if you can for a bonus point. The ROM can be found here: https://atariage.com/software_page.php?SoftwareLabelID=778 Round ends Sunday, August 4th, 2019 @9pm EST Standings:

  3. Welcome aboard! Glad you're enjoying Sinistar, even using keyboard controls. (I played MAME games that way for years in the early days!)
  4. With the cost of repair to the original motherboard, yoke, and monitor terrifyingly high, one has to wonder if this might be an acceptable replacement for an original stand-up unit. Yeah, I know it won't be nearly as large and sturdy, the vectors won't be as bright, and it won't retain that perfect sense of nostalgia, but it should be significantly easier to maintain, and thanks to the yoke controller and near-perfect emulation, it should still largely have much of the original enjoyment. Most of all, there won't be that moment of dread and terror every time you turn it on, fearing that something hyper-expensive will fail!

  6. Congratulations to eegt97 for blowing away far more Death Stars than Luke Skywalker and Lando Calrissian combined! Apologies to those who didn’t enjoy the game. Really hope Sinistar is more to everyone’s tastes as that’s coming up next. eegt97 - 37,046 +11 Cafeman - 26,081 +10 jblenkle - 4,444 +9 bemis - 2,056 +8 Mangia-Boy - 50 +7
  7. Still wasn’t out of the woods with this one... many keys weren’t working, and the picture, while fine with RF, was awful with a monitor. Key problems were fixed with a disassembly and cleaning. But I had no clue how to fix the monitor issue. So I moved the working VIC-II to another motherboard. That fixed the monitor issue, but now the sound was mostly missing and paddles didn’t work. Swapped the Sid chip and finally all was well. (Still need to try two untested 1541s... fingers crossed!) Update: One of the 1541's worked great after a head cleaning. Playing a number of games now! (Also got a huge pile of disks in this lot, and I'm finding that most of the original games work great, but most of the cracked copy disks do not. Not especially surprising!)
  8. Poll closes Sunday, July 7th, 2019 @9pm EST
  9. Replacing the VIC-II did indeed fix the problem. Yay!
  10. 547,200 I initially hadn’t noticed zylon changed the difficulty after I complained (that will teach me!) I used the Wico out of mercy to my thumbs, so go ahead and dock me a point.
  11. Picked up a C64 in a yard sale yesterday that boots up fine (yay!) but seems to have one of its sprites corrupted when playing a game. Is replacing the VIC-II chip the way to go on this? Or is their something else I should try first? (For better or worse, I have two C64s that just boot to a black screen so they could be harvested for parts.)
  12. Excellent! Glad you're coming back with another wholly original creation for the 5200! 😁
