  1. come to the Retrobörse in Vienna this Saturday (30.11.) - there are quite a few of us Atari users there as well
  2. opening a new topic, as I can't change the title of the old one and it's no longer valid ... some of you may remember, that I offered some of my Atari 2600 Homevision Cartridges up for trade - they are boxed, no manuals, picture below. I am looking mainly for rare Atari 8bit software/hardware, e.g.: Alleycat, Quasimodo (Synapse) The Spy strikes back (Penguin Software) The Abandoned Scrolls (Access) Plundered Hearts (Infocom) Suspended, Starcross Folios (Infocom) most Datamost titles some Datasoft Titles (Lost Tomb, 1200XL boxed 810 Floppy boxed (preferably PAL) as well as some Atari 8bit Homebrews, namely: Line Runner Yoomp! Isora & Loops DX Creativision game: Stone Age rarer Atari Jaguar games Battlesphere, Air Cars Vectrex: 3D Imager+games, Pole Position, Polar Rescue I haven't had much luck looking for any of the titles in a trade, so I might also entertain cash offers, but I would prefer trading ...
  3. I will take one if more become available, please!
  4. I'll take an assembled one if you still take orders ....
  5. Hey! I definitely want to be put on the list :-) thanks!
  6. still looking for some of the games, all the Homevision games are still available for trade
  7. I don't think its the cartridge connector (or the carts - I tried different carts of the same game with same results) take Q-Bert as an example: the game works when I first power on the system, and it's fully playable without problems - once the system runs for a while, I insert different cartridges and re-insert Q-Bert, it wouldn't work properly any more my guess would be some kind of capacitor that is acting strange once it's fully loaded ?
  8. anyone knows if the game with box is still for sale ? the link on the cartridge with manual only version seems to be dead: "If you'd like to purchase a copy of Tempest with a professionally offset printed, high-quality box, you may do so here." https://www.atariage.com/store/index.php?l=product_detail&p=1014
  9. ok - but wouldn't there be a consistent behaviour then ? and not getting worse once the system is running for a few minutes ? On a "cold" system, Q-Bert works perfectly fine - once I play it for a while (or use some other carts and then re-insert Q-Bert again) the errors start to appear ...
  10. I am not sure what you mean - "I now 5200 Pacman which is a 1st party game worked before and after the upgrade." - that's what I would have expected ... or do you mean it did NOT work after the upgrade ?
  11. Hi all ! I have an issue with my recently purchased Atari 5200 4-port (unmodded) with 11 games - about half of the games have issues - either garbled screen, characters showing instead of graphics or incorrect characters appearing on screen - more details below: The following games work flawlessly: Pole Position, Missile Command, Defender, Soccer, Frogger not working: Q-Bert, Pac-Man, Berzerk, Centipede the question is - anyone knows what's different in the games in the lower list ? special memory management that points to a faulty chip? I did rule out that the games are faulty - a collector friend brought his copies of the games and the behaviour is exactly the same .... at least Q-Bert and Berzerk did work immediately after switching on the system - which means that the problem get's worse once the machine is running for a few minutes ... any hints are very appreciated !! Thank you in advance !
  12. No kidneys taken currently as payment - only Super Cassette Vision games I am looking for ... but might take you up on that offer later
  13. I few people requested pictures of the Homevision carts - here you go ... Currently I am not looking to sell them and I also would want to wait for offers of the Super Cassette Vision games I am looking for - however if nothing comes up I might consider trading for some Intellivision, Creativision or Atari 8bit games I am looking for, specifically: Intellivision: Fathom, Triple Challenge, Body Slam, Super Pro Decathlon, Stadium Mud Buggies, Spiker, Slap Shot, Learning Fun I and II, Mountain Madness, Jetsons Way With Words, World Series Major League Baseball, Congo Bongo Atari 8bit: Alley Cat, Quasimodo, Shadow World (Synapse) Up'n'Down (Sega) Whistler's Brothers (Broderbound) Pathfinder (Activision) Rally Speedway (Adventure International) Plundered Hearts, Suspended (Folio) (Infocom) Creativision: Locomotive, Stone Age, Chopper Rescue
