  1. Bumparoni for more Arcadia games! List updated!
  2. Bought a lot of Arcadia 2001 games. Shipped fast, as described, brilliant! Tombstone's always a solid seller.
  3. Thanks! Allen reached out to me and we've been discussing options. He generously sent me replacement RAM and I'm going to try socketing and replacing chips today!
  4. "I'd buy that for a doll-I mean, 3,500,000 AtariCoins!"

  5. Apparently my old Hotmail account it was on got wiped at some point. Inbox completely empty. Admittedly, I haven't used that e-mail address since I was last here before now in....2013 as well, so.....yeah. It's on me. Fingers crossed that Curt can save the day.
  6. Resubmitted what I have. Due to my not being on here in....forever....I don't have my email or receipt or order number. Hopefully Curt still has something on his end but I pre-ordered in 2010 so.... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. Hopefully it works out, should have kept the emails!
  7. Yeah, Spiders/Red Clash/Grand Slam Tennis are going to take some work! First post edited to update the list.
  8. GTA: London 1969 for sure. Vice City has the best gameplay but driving around in a Mini blasting old school reggae is just awesome!
  9. The deal is sealed! Will edit this later but still looking for the rest of the US Arcadia collection to start! CIB (cart, manual, overlays - warranty/catalog aren't necessary but are nice) only. The list is as follows: [Edit list in here later]
  10. Real talk: Anyone have a list of all the 2600 hacks/homebrews/games that support the trackball? (I'm too lazy to search).

      Ha! Too lazy to copy/paste is less lazy than I am! I salute you!

      ....and, of course, I spent the entire time after this doing last minute filings for a client, with a full day more tomorrow. D'oh!

  11. Man, I wish I could get mirror glaze on my balls. Okay, I'm done.
  12. Got a giant bottle of ArmorAll, time to spray down the collection!

      I'm allergic to ArmorAll. I kid you not. I get this weird bump rash on my ass if I use it on my car seats. Takes about 3 weeks for it to go away.

      I told you Keatah,  you need to wear clothes when you're in your car!  ..  Not just be free-balling it with a long shirt.

      How else will he compete with RT's shiny new balls though?

  13. Make sure you're careful when you clean your balls. Rusty balls are the worst.
  14. Everything boxed since I'm starting fresh! I assume they're all cart/manual/overlays?
  15. NGL: It's been ages....but it's time to bust out the BIG SEXY and Harmony and play some GAMES!

  16. As complete as I can get them. At least box, cart, manual, overlays. Leaflet and catalog are nice but not as necessary
  17. What the hey, now that I have the Arcadia working, might as well try to complete the collection. Looking for US releases.....boxed. I'm becoming a big boy now and moving to CIB stuff. At minimum cart/box/manual/overlays. Here's the list: 3D Bowling Alien Invaders American Football Baseball Brain Quiz Breakaway Capture Cat Trax Escape Grand Slam Tennis Jungler Missile War Ocean Battle Red Clash Soccer Space Attack Space Mission Space Raiders Space Vultures Spiders Star Chess Tanks A Lot
  18. Possible Astrocade fix en route thanks to generous Bally collectors! Now onto trying to fix the Emerson Arcadia AND my Stunt Cycle...

      ....and Arcadia working! I think some of the carts may be futzed. Chips needed reseated and a couple caps had blown.

      ....and Stunt Cycle just needed a good internal cleaning. Perfect!


  19. Do you get anything at all when the system is off to when it's turned on? Doesn't appear to. Just to this screen. How about with and without a cartridge in the slot? No change as far as I can tell, just similar output. And pressing Reset does nothing, right? I don't mean Reset will make the machine start, I just wonder if it affects the video at all. I can *almost* see some movement on pixels but it's not really much, and there's a high probability I'm imagining it. I'd suspected it's a chip issue, but yeah....maybe it's just a paperweight at this point. I'll look into SetScreen and see if that gives me anything.
  20. Okay, having cracked it open let's get to specific repair! This is a Bally Arcade unit that is post-Astrovision. Currently getting static on screen with a high pitched whine (see video). Oops! Couldn't post video. It's a black screen with faint static and a higher pitch whine/buzz. Things done so far: Checked for bulging caps (looks good) Pulled, cleaned, and reseated socketed chips (no change) Cleaned edge connectors and pins (no change) Flowed solder in a couple spots (no change). PCB looks good - no broken traces etc. I've checked all the chips for continuity and there's a couple suspects, and I do have a logic probe but without knowing what the pins are supposed to be doing there's not much I can do with that. Question is: is it worth attempting repair at this point, and if so, what approach should I take beyond shotgunning chips here?
