    Finding eight people to play should not be a problem at all.  However, crowding eight people around a small Commodore 1702 display will be more challenging.  Might have to hook up a 2600 to a larger display for this.  :)

    Or just use a video DA, and send the image to four monitors.

    For me he was the secret star of the show.

    "Secret"? I thought it was pretty obvious. ;) 


    James and Tanya (and Atari) - you have my heartfelt condolences. Pets are family members, and it's never easy to say goodbye to one. You have great memories though, with many of them captured forever on video and in the wonderful photos you shared with us. Thanks for sharing Pixel with all of us for these past few years.

    Again the real credit for this particular circuit design goes to @marauder666 and @juansolo. I just designed a PCB with the components on it to help make installing it easier as I really think it should become a staple part of any 7800 UAV installations. I've been adding it myself for the past few months and really think it helps. 


    It also has to be stressed that the results of this will vary from console to console due to variance.

    I'm going to be modding a 7800 for John Champeau soon-ish. I may be PM'ing you about one of those boards. :)

    I've been meaning to ask this for sometime and your post seems like a good opportunity: Is the Cybertech S-video mod considered to be the best quality mod?

    It was at the time I was testing mods (which was years ago). I haven't tested any other S-Video mods since, because I haven't had a reason to. I've been perfectly happy with it.


    However, I do have a system I'll be adding a UAV mod to at some point, so I'll be able to do a direct comparison. I'd still use a CyberTech if I could get one.

    The cartridge and label renderings look odd shoddy and amateurish

    Fixed that for ya'.

    Wonder who is making the carts? AtGames. LimitedRun, PowerA?



    Or maybe they're buying supplies from someone with more audacity.

    Seems I am not charging nearly enough for boxed games..  :ponder:

    Neither am I. ;)

    Some of the articles show boxes, although I'm not sure which tier would include them. Funny that the Atari logo is upside down:


    The inverted logo reminds me of when you point your ship upside-down in Lunar Lander, and plow headlong into the ground at full speed.


    Not sure what made me think of that particular imagery...

    Dood. That's sooo bad for marketing. How the heck did they let that pass? Looks like a botched panel placement in the 3D box render. Ugh.

    I guess Atari SA didn't want to invest that kind of money in their marketing.
