  1. Hey thanks guys. This lively discussion gives me something to chew on. I am more of a casual user/gamer and don't really intend to develop on the system. Sold all my disk drives at one of the Portland Shows a couple of years back. Still have a cassette system (uugh) in the closet. I'll look around and more likely come back with some more questions. Like the cart port extended and such. Also, so I understand, the bulk of these carts take care of the bios differences in these machine? Or is it recommended to use an XL or XE over the 400/800? I could totally use my XEGS for everything.
  2. Probably just about all of them released commercially. The oddest ones are the XEGS and the 1200XL ( pic here of my pong unit sitting on top of the 1200xl). When I lived in the same neighborhood as Joe Decuir, he came by and signed my 800 when we did interviews for movies, PBS and local TV ... I think the 800 is the coolest of them all. I was never a collector of these or the commodores, they all fell into my lap over the years. Although, I still do have my 400 I got in High School ... on clearance for $75. Programmed the heck out of that. The darn cassette drive cost me $140 though.
  3. Thanks for the link. No insult taken. Good stuff in there.
  4. This looks more like what I am after. Now I need a good s video or better signal. Thanks for the prompt replies everyone.
  5. I have what seems like hundreds of games (disk/cratidges) for my 8bits. I would like to know if there is a one stop cart that supports all the games via SD card (bios differences and all). I really want to leave only one of my 8bits hooked up to play without the drives, cassettes, etc.. I must apologize if there is something. I haven't really followed the 8bit scene that closely. I recently got a an Atarimax for the 5200 and am having a good time with that.
  6. Been away for awhile myself. Wishing you the best. I know aging is kind to us "old timers" and you are still a youngster.
  7. Going to this site is blocked by my security. I was able to get on using another computer, but it blocked me from dowloading the roms. Is this website malicious? Too bad, Im interested in a couple of the games. Necromancer for one.
  8. I am in the same exact situation as Albert. Mine is still sitting in a box waiting.... Can PM me as well. Thanks,
  9. got my atari max. Now, I have another question. Is there a list of 8bit conversions on this site.?
  10. I'll open mine up and see what I can do. But, I ordered an AtariMax as well.
  11. After a couple of moves and not playing my 5200 for about 5 years, I hooked it all up and discovered my menu driven multi cart doesn't work. I believe it was made by Sean Kelly. I have a DIP switch cart from him as well. It still works, however, I really like the menu driven one better. Is there a good alternative out there? I've heard that the Kelly carts are are notorious for failing. If possible I'd love to add some the of the 8 bit conversions onto the cart. Thanks for your help.
  12. I played the heck out of this when it was first released. Finished it. Like alot of shooters, it's a pattern memorization thing. But mess up on the controls and its game over pretty quickly. I got the rapid fire controller and could complete the game much easier. Definitely a button masher.
  13. Interesting. My Pong Case came with a Sears Telegames unit.. Newer I suspect. No chrome. It also came with a sears battery eliminator. It too, has the Atari Switch. I actually asked about the case when I found it many years ago and no one responded. I assume it is quite rare. Its a nice little momento for my collection. Original post (Pong Suitcase)
