  1. I'm looking to buy one of these carts for the 2600. I found 2 on ebay that are both from Australia. One says that it is PAL format, the other does not specify. Question - was Double Dragon released in North America for the 2600? Follow-up question - will PAL 2600 games play on a 7800? I know that there is different hardware required to play Nintendo PAL carts, but does anyone knw about the 7800?
  2. I just looked at the serial number of my 7800, and it's not even on your list! Anazing that they would make so many consoles in so many different ways - did they not think that any of their small tweaks from unit to unit might cause compatibility issues?
  3. That's great! Thanks for the info! I'm not at home, so I don't know which serial number my 7800 is. It for sure won't play time pilot, and Burger Time loads, but the character will only move to the right of the screen and nowhere else. Funny that you did not have a problem with Burger Time. Again, thanks for the info!
  4. Anyone have an issue playing Time Pilot on a 7800? I bought 2 Time Pilot carts from a local store, and niether of them played on my 7800. He took them both back, and even he couldn't get them to work on his in-store 2600. I just chalked that experience as two broken carts and moved on. I recently bought a Time Pilot cart on ebay, and IT TOO won't work on my 7800. I think three is a bit of a stretch to look on as conincedence, don't you think? I've yet to have issue playing a cart other than this. Could it be that Time Pilot doesn't play on the 7800? I couldn't play Kool-Aid on my 2600 Jr., but that is a documented case of a cart not working on a particular hardware. I also cannot get Burger Time to play on my 7800. The man will only run right and the game stops. This has been noted by a few other gamers as well. But does anyone know about Time Pilot issues?? I only own a 7800. I don't have a 2600 or a 2600 jr to test on also!
  5. Yeah, I figured it out! Thanks for the marketplace tip!
  6. Working Zellers Freeway cart for trade. Cart lable is in prestine condition. If anyone is interested in trading for it, please let me know. I am looking for the follwoing 2600 carts - Time Pilot Snoopy Red Baron Gremlins Tapper Pete Rose (7800 or 2600 version) I know that if you go by the rarety guide from this site, I am offering a '4' and looking for either a '4' '5' or '6' in return, but I am a cart player. Condition of the lable is not that important to me, and I am willing to overlook the condition of the cart so long as it is 100% functioning. If anyone is interested in making a trade, please let me know. Also, I am located in Ontario Canada for those who would like to factor in shipping price before you consider a trade. Thanks for looking!
  7. Thanks! I was planning on moving the entire first post as is. I wanted to copy and paste and take along the photos, but now there isn't an option to 'edit' the post. Any idea what I am doing wrong?

    Zellers?

    That explains it a bit. But I wonder why they changed the names of just a few? I wonder what the reasoning behind leaving Freeway as Freeway, but changing Defender to Earth Attack, etc. Okay, so if there is anyone who is looking to trade for a Zellers Freeway cart please let me know. It's available.

    Zellers?

    I found a Freeway cart in a thrift store. The cart looked nothing like my Activision Freeway cart, so I shelled out the $2.99 for it. On this site, it says that this was a Zellers cart. I am Canadian, and Zellers stores still exist, but I do not recall anyone having these carts back in 'the day.' Were they ever released in the U.S.? Do U.S. collectors actively pursure these? Also, is there any difference between the Acitivion Freeway and Zellers Freeway cart beyond the lable? Finally - HOW COULD THEY GET AWAY WITH SOMETHING LIKE THIS? As far as I can tell, they are the same game!
