  1. Manually setting it is what I was trying, when I hit the RIGHT on the DPAD to set as RIGHT , nothing happened. Couldn't seem to figure out how to just let it autodetect the DPAD
  2. Yep, just Kat 5200 won't let me set right on the DPAD. Windows 10
  3. Been trying quite a few more emulators during this lockdown, and this one for the 5200 seems to run all games & work except for 1 main problem: It will NOT detect me pressing right on the DPAD during the configuration It's a pretty old PC control pad I found up in my closet I started using (Microsoft Sidewinder?? with no analog sticks, 4 main buttons & just 2 shoulder buttons)Honestly I can't even remember where I got it from but it works fine with NES Emulators & others so I don't understand what the issue is here. UP, LEFT, DOWN registers & maps it but not RIGHT for some reason Anyone??
  4. Just starting to look into the ST & some the games in it's library through Hatari/Launchbox I have 2 questions: 1.Did it use the same joysticks as the 2600 & XE ? (From what I read so far 7800 controllers tend not to work right) 2.Is there a USB adapter someone can recommend that I could use to plug a 2600 joystick into my laptop as the game controller for Hatari...if that works well that is? Thanks
  5. Just trying to set up the Hatari emulator for the first time & am running it within Launchbox. Never owned or played an ST, but always been curious about them. Anyways the first game I wanted to try was Crack'ed because I love my 7800 version & was impressed by the ST version's graphics I saw on a video & the apparent mouse support that makes the game easier to control. Can't figure out any settings that seem obvious to me, but I'm unable to move the mouse once the game loads up. Just stuck at the title screen. Another game I tried I was able to start up with the keyboard, although I'm still unsure what key I actually pressed, beind I kinda bashed them all because I couldn't tell which was meant to use haha. If anyone can please shine some light as to what the issue is with the mouse & let me know the basic key commands for games I'd really appreciate it. I have a Hori RAP Pro arcade stick I would like to use with some games as well, but haven't tried that yet either. Little anxious with that as I can barley even get the standard controls figured out Thanks in advance
  6. i got it using Firefox & also Safari on my phone
  7. Yea I got the same too! I was curious about reading the thread there on it, but after I saw that I was like PASS.
  8. OK, a couple WIP screenshots were posted over 2 years ago. Either didn't catch that at all or don't remember Knew I shoulda checked that homebrew thread though, I see now Atari Leaf commented it on earlier with the same video. Guess cuz I searched "Putt18" as 1 word nothing turned up from recent
  9. Looks like Video 61 has made this for 5200/Atari 8 Bit & is now working on a version for the 7800. If this is old news, forgive me. Don't think it's exactly my dream game or anything personally, but I haven't noticed anything 7800 specific mentioned here so figured I'd share this video I just saw in my Youtube feed. Happy to see Lance working on new titles regardless & lots of respect to him for keeping at it for so long. I get nostalgic hearing his voice, it reminds me of my very 1st days of collecting, calling the store at my parent's house to order some games back in 1998-1999 haha https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ViizneNGdyY&t=407s
  10. Knew some of you on here would feel my pain lol Not too much longer before it'll be "Huh? You mean this round shaped thing is a GAME?"
  11. Think the minis weren't out just yet..Who knows he was huge into games too lol I also catch myself about to say "The Nintendo" in front of people sometimes as if there's still one sole console from them hahaha
  12. Haha. I'm in The States & the only time I ever saw a Virtual Boy myself was once in the 90's at a mall kiosk & I played the Tennis for a couple minutes. Don't remember ever seeing one again aside from maybe boxed at a game store. My cousin's son a few years ago when he was like 8...when I introduced him to the Lynx I thought it was hilarious that his first reaction was to start touching the screen. Also, one of the major defining moments of me realizing I have really became old was when her stepson who was about 15 around that same time (& is now 19-20), saw my consoles all set up & goes "Nintendo Entertainment System?!...What is THAT?!" in a super confused tone
  13. ...& out of the corner of my eye I saw 2 kids walk by & heard one say "WHAT IS THAT?!" to which the other replied, "I think that's the first PSP" 🤣😂 Just one out of many examples of how the retrogaming I enjoy in general is really starting to make me feel like a dinosaur lol I mean u have ppl in their early - mid 20's nowadays who's first console was a PS2 🥴
  14. WOWWWW That was the cringiest thread I've ever read on here.....or anywhere online in recent times for that matter lol
  15. hahahah YEEEEESSSSSS!!!! That is amazing!! :grin:
  16. Had one last night & thought it'd be fun to hear from some others that might have too...figured if the 7800 had managed to enter people's dreams, this'd prob be the ideal place to hear about it lol In mine last night, I ordered a game online & the package came in. I can't remember what exactly the game was though, but when I opened it up I do remember that they got my order mixed up & sent me the wrong one.....it was a MORTAL KOMBAT 7800 HOMEBREW! :grin: & the weirdness doesn't end there. I put the cart in, a title screen came on with real detailed, almost anime looking graphics. I had some "Voice Expansion Pack" that somehow didn't plug into the console, but underneath the CONTROLLER! :grin: The game made use of it & although I can't remember a word that was said, these cutscenes that were playing after the title screen had dialogue being spoken that sounded pretty decent quality I've had a few before, but one I have never forgot in my childhood was a dream that there was a Munsters 7800 game. I never even knew of Midnight Mutants existence until about a decade later either (But TBH it wasn't out just yet at the time of the dream )..and now fast forward to 2019 the new Munsters Pinball machine happens to be my new favorite & 2 locations by me have it haha
  17. I am shocked this is a 7800 title. Unreal.
  18. Yea I remember hearing someone did that
  19. Just wanting to be sure people clicked on the Youtube video of the death scream in the NES version of part II I ran into, that was kind of the gist of this post, I thought some of u might find it as funny as I did . Think some of u might have overlooked it? If not, carry on lol. Sorry I don't know how to let the large YT thumbnail show or embed it, never tried. Just saw the "add link" option & did that
  20. Oh yea, I've long known Impossible Mission was literallly "Impossible" lol Cool, I knew of the Commodore 64 when I was a kid, but never saw or played one or knew much at all about computer games of any kind until my family got our first IBM PC in early-mid 90s
  21. I ADORE this game. This & Food Fight are my #1s on the system. TBH might even like this more. Food Fight was my fav forever, but only about 4 years ago did I get a copy of Mario Bros & I think this was even more addicting to me. Big shame I missed out when I was a kid & never even knew of it's existence on the 7800 at the time, my sister & I woulda loved it Newer arcade in my area has the cabinet, and I've been the high score on it (Game doesn't save, but they keep track of customers records) I'm far from a pro, but I owe alot of it to playing this version so much. Same story at the arcade, I can't stay away from it, literally hours on it every visit lol
  22. I never knew or at least don't remember hearing there was a sequel. In fact, I only knew the original as a 7800 game in my childhood from seeing it on the commercial, and during my teens when I began collecting, bought it & got to play it. It wasn't until a little later that I learned it had home computer & other console versions. Anyways I've been researching DOS games lately, went to look at footage on YT & discovered this on the NES. Figured some of u on here might get a kick out of it like I did lol Not too many funnier death screams come to mind ATM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqoc8DD02aY
  23. Out of all those, Fight Night for sure, because I've always seen people say how horrible & unplayable it was, but just a few days ago stumbled on to a YT video of someone playing it & beating it pretty quickly. So I was just thinking of giving that game another chance. Actually think I only tried it once after I picked it up years ago & it's been sitting on the shelf ever since lol
  24. Just watched & subscribed..Rly like your review style I love Joust, but in my 30 or so years playing it, never once killed the Pterodactyl nor even tried haha Going to have to try & change that soon The 7800 just doesn't get much love on Youtube, would love to see some more in the future too!
