  1. As for whether or not you'll play: there is an extremely limited software library, though I find a few games are very much worth an occasional return (Pop and Chips, Star Speeder, Nekketsu Kung Fu). That being said, I doubt highly you'll return for Milky Princess, Super Soccer, Baseball, or Super Sansuuputer.
  2. It's a shame. I remember paying about $60 for mine and some loose carts (also without a controller bay cover -- are there replacements for these??) and this was in 2018. Now people are selling "JUNK" labeled systems for $300 (complete with RARE). It's so bizarre to me.
  3. First off, thank you so much for your generosity! It was lovely trying these games out on my ColecoVision. Also, so glad to read that the Ghostbusters problem with SD devices was a common issue -- I was initially thinking there was something wrong with my device! Would be curious to see if anyone figures a workaround ...

    VCS Dreidel

    Can't wait to give this a go when I get home! It's nice to see other attempts to do Chanukah-related things on the 2600. A couple of years ago I started doing a menorah program on the VCS and sadly never finished it...
  5. If you do and feel like getting rid of it, I would be interested!
  6. It's a long shot, but I figure why not give it a go? Any chances someone would be willing to sell their functioning Fairchild Channel F system?
  7. When it comes to the SCV, I have had no luck at ALL with the Wanted posts. Lord knows I have tried a few times; I assume this means that there are very few people who are collecting for this. It seems most items I find on eBay or Yahoo Japan Auctions are manual-less...
  8. and sure enough, Sky Kid completed my cart collection and it had no manual. I posted in Wanted about missing manuals or getting replacement boxes (or just boxes, period) for games I have. I keep getting copies of Super Soccer in game lots (one of the worst games for the system), and amusingly ALL these have had manuals. Why specifically Super Soccer? Who can say. But it is a rarity -- Super Mahjong copies seem to have the manual and the overlay often too.
  9. So, help a brother out. :: laugh :: I have several Super Cassette Vision games that I would love to sell off -- I'm not sure how many collectors for this system there are, but I have a few games that may be of interest. Games with boxes: #01, Astro Wars. Cart in good shape; box has price tag residue on front and some damage where the tab should go, tab intact. No manual. #05, Super Baseball. Cart in good shape; box has some tearing on left side and some grime from age, tab intact. No manual. #06, Punch Boy. Cart in good shape, as is the box, with only some signs of age. No manual. #13, Super Soccer. Cart in good shape; box has fraying near tab. Includes manual. #22, Doraemon. Cart is in okay shape; box has signs of age, some bending, still has the box tab. No manual. #26, Wai Wai (Y2) World. Cart has some wear but works great; box is just okay, slightly misshapen, looks its age, missing tab. No manual. Solo carts: #02, Astro Wars II: Battle in Galaxy #10, Wheelie Racer #17, Nekketsu Kung Fu Road All of these carts have been tested on my Japanese Epoch system and all function fine. Please DM me with some reasonable offers. These carts are located in Central Illinois. So yeah, help me find a new home for these carts! If you collect for an oddball system like this, maybe these will strike your fancy!
  10. So I currently have all of the carts released for this system, but am sadly missing boxes for several of the games (or the boxes are in super deplorable condition). Super Golf Elevator Fight Lupin III Dragon Slayer Sky Kid Also, except for a few, I am trying to find manuals for most of the games as well. Can anyone help?
  11. I have been loving AF and TNT Cowboy -- great releases! So can't wait for Defender of the Crown. Sadly Portland seems unlikely for me.
  12. Okay, update: after FINALLY finding an executable for Windows 64-bit systems (the current one has none!) I uninstalled and then reinstalled all the drivers and -- wouldn't you know it ! -- there is my device, on COM3. Thank you for the help!
  13. Using mode I got: Status for device COM3: Baud: 57600 Parity: None Data Bits: 8 Stop Bits: 1 Timout: OFF XON/XOFF: OFF CTS handshaking: OFF DSR handshaking: OFF DSR sensitivity: OFF DTR circuit: ON RTS circuit: ON Status for device CON: Lines: 300 Columbs: 80 Keyboard rate: 31 Keyboard delay: 1 Code page: 437 Toggling OPEN did in face send the LOCUTUS beacon. Excitedly, I ran to the GUI, and ... no LTO Flash! devices were found. I am so so confused.
  14. Fascinating. Now that you bring it up, I had recently reinstalled Skype; I wonder if this uses a COM port? I sadly don't know enough about the software to make a judgement. Everything in the device driver menu (except it listing a COM port) seems to match up perfectly. I used the RealTerm program, set it to what you described, and got no kind of beacon whatsoever on the settings you described. I assume this beacon should just pop up upon the cart being plugged in? I'm now wondering if I should try to uninstall the driver and reinstall everything? Oy, this is frustrating.
