  1. Looks awesome! Count me in on any waiting list.
  2. Looks awesome! $$$ burning hole in pocket, 10th cant come soon enough!
  3. Just wanted to chime in as another in the U.S (Scarborough, ME) who has received the cart. This thing rocks!
  4. Just got email confirmation, guess I was #28.
  5. It never ceases to amaze me that many of the rare games and many well known Pinball machines that frequently get mentioned at Atari Age (such as 'I, Robot', 'Spiders'), we got to play at, of all places, the Pittsfield, Maine Bowling Center (the 'Bowling Alley', as we referred to it, which is long since gone). We were quite lucky. Between that place and the LaVerdiere's drug store chain that had arcades in them, for a small town in central Maine, we really saw a great deal of the 'Golden Age' of arcades and machines.
  6. The original PSP sleeve works well for the Flashback Portable.
  7. (Someone has to say it, this is a video game forum after all ....) 'The cake is a lie.'

  9. I am in a similar boat as others with the VecMulti not working well in my Vectrex. I did learn that one must absolutely not format the SD card using the default functionality in Windows 10 (at least for me, it never worked). As suggested elsewhere, the formatter from sdcard.org seems to work best. For me, I can get the cart to boot into the menu, but the bulk of games either wont load (choosing one leads to a blank screen), work maybe for a few seconds before crashing to either a blank screen or some other garbled screen, load but look/behave oddly or in the case of Scramble, some games start but the ship/controlled item immediately explodes/dies so it's impossible to actually play a game. I'm hoping someone figures out a final solution so I am holding onto my cart for now. In the meantime, I have finally gotten around to starting to install my Vectrex Controller kit into the VecJoy case ( https://atariage.com/forums/topic/240542-new-vectrex-joystick-kit-for-sale/page/10/)
  10. Another 'sicko' here - I liked (and completed) Highlander as well. I will admit though, it is a different bird of a game and getting the hang of the controls, while neither ideal nor intuitive, is possible and once one does get used to them, Highlander is pretty playable.
  11. I think this is an expected 'feature'; I think the arcade version has this as well. btw - I am loving this port, great addition to the Lynx library!
  12. Hope that mini Pong makes its' way to the US eventually.
  13. I, Robot always seemed like it belonged on the Jag.
  14. Just bought into batch #5 for the Freckle Shack kit - looking forward to it.
  15. Ditto this! Got my Jag from a small Atari computer store in Denver, CO (or it might have been one of the suburbs) as soon as it became available to buy (and was able to save up the money from my job working up in Summit County at Keystone).
