  1. I wish I still did! I bought that and was on there back in the day. FYI... atarimania.com has all the .atr disk images. However, they are kind of mislabeled. The description for Lords of Space mentions "Missing original disk image!" but this is wrong. http://www.atarimania.com/game-atari-400-800-xl-xe-lords-of-space_3040.html The zip file there actually has images of all 4 original disk sides.
  2. AtGames is aware of this issue internally. It sounded like a real patch was forthcoming but has not happened. Would probably help if more people emailed AtGames at [email protected] and kindly requested that a fix be released to the public for both Flashback 9 and Flashback X.
  3. I am sure you have audio delay. You just haven't noticed.
  4. The Flashback 9 has the same audio lag. I agree, this makes it very hard to play. I am disappointed to hear that the Flashback X (even after they specifically released a patch to address the audio delay) still has this same audio problem. There was word that a patch was forthcoming for the FB9 but that has yet to happen. I was planning on getting a Flashback X specifically because it sounded like they fixed it... but since they have not, I will hold off. My Retron77 also does NOT have the extended audio delay that the Flashback 9 has, so my experience is identical to yours when it comes to the Retron 77. Here is an audio analysis I did playing Pitfall. The spike on the left is me hitting the button. Then you can see how long it takes for the audio of the of the jump sound to play. This analysis was done with the same TV with the same HDMI cable on the same input with the same GAME MODE setting for both the Retron 77 and the Flashback 9.
  5. There is audio lag on the Flashback 9. The same audio lag existed on the Flashback X but they since patched it. Would be great if they would release a firmware update for Flashback 9 also to fix this audio lag.
  6. I totally agree. This would be great if they did one for the ST or even the 800XL.
  7. Might help.. and very easy to try. The nice thing about the sanding is that it is only on places that you cannot see when paddle is reassembled.
  8. I just took apart my Ranger and sanded around where the paddle sits in the plastic. Very easy to open up with a small phillips screwdriver. Only six screws. Also, when putting it back together, I slightly loosened the two screws near the paddle. This has greatly improved my paddle. It no longer is tight. Much easier to turn it now. I'd say that this has caused the paddle to go from a C to an A-. (Note, real working clean original paddles would be a A+)
  9. The "new" firmware just released a few days ago on November 28, 2019, is identical to the firmware they released a few weeks ago... and that firmware was identical to the firmware they released back in February. They are all version 2.1.1. I have done a file compare (FC) on all of them and they are all exactly identical. Very confusing.
  10. Happy to hear there is a BIOS update in the works!
  11. Is it possible for this cart to connect to a local computer on the local home network and download/play games from that? Or will this have to connect to an internet server for the games?
