  1. Hoping I can get some answers. Thanks for steering me in the right direction!
  2. On the plus side, I finally got my hands on a Bally Astrocade. On the minus side, it doesn't seem to work. The screen will black out but none of the cartridges seem to run. Any suggestions on troubleshooting or places that could help in the repair of the system?
  3. I do though since it's so heavy I try to get out of using it whenever possible ^^;;;;;
  4. I assume I'll still need the SAMS at this point? Will I also need drives?
  5. Hi, new to this whole thing. I saw somewhere that the FINALGROM was an option to running this. Did anyone have details and if, in fact, I can still get it in this form anywhere?
  6. Soooooo just what is "Top Secret" on the 128K cart? Or do I need to purchase to see? ^_- Any purchase info?
  7. They sure are in business. It took about a month and a half (I'm sure a chunk of that was shipping) but I received a 3D imager and light pen from Johannes yesterday. So thrilled to finally be able to play these games on my multicart!
  8. Probably literally a minute. : laugh:
  9. As someone with the manual, cart and overlays, all I needed was the box. But, I didn't $560 need the box. (Yes, I had a bid in here until it got into the $200 range!)
  10. That's kind of what I was afraid of. I don't assume there's an alternative to the original paddle is there?
  11. Sadly it seems the system and not the controllers; the controllers seem to work fine in other systems. In the port without the bent pin, every controller I throw at it responds the same way.
  12. I'm honestly not sure if this is the place to post this; the Genesis naturally has a dedicated area but not the Master System. So I picked up a used Master System recently. It was pretty dusty but powers on and that's fine. I just finally got some games and noticed that up and the up diagonals do not respond on the left port, and none of the directions at all seem to respond on the right side. Using any number of controllers does not seem to do anything. So, I was wanting to pop this thing open eventually to install an FM card, but ... I admit, I know very little about the system. Is there something I can do to possibly remedy this problem? Where should I begin looking? Is this repairable? A couple of other questions: I see the system had a paddle for games like Woody Pop. Does a standard DB9 paddle work in its place, or is the Sega one proprietary? One of the controller pins seems bent on the system. Any decent way to possibly bend this back? Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
  13. Hahah, call me pessimistic but I'm somehow doubting she'd be down. ^_-
