  1. I kept it, and I know I made the right decision.
  2. I just tried using my VCR. The picture quality was better, but it was still in black and white. I tried using a couple different cords too. Could there be a problem with the ST itself?
  3. Hey guys. I booted my Atari 1040STfm up for the first time in a few months. It booted up fine and loaded disks fine, but I can't get it to display in color. I'm using the RF port and a color TV. Anybody got any ideas why I can't get it to show color?
  4. I just saw the saddest profile post ever.

      It was this guy named tandy who said "I think the ti99/4a community is dieing" and hasn't logged on in five years

  5. I've been playing my 2600 for the past few days. I'm glad I decided not to sell them, I definitely would've regretted it if I had. But anyway, after playing Video Pinball and Midnight Magic, I started wondering if anyone has made a good homebrew pinball game. Does anyone here know of one?
  6. Yeah, I've always liked these games too. They make up the majority of my Atari ST game collection. Typing in the commands is probably my favorite thing about Sierra's early games, I wish more games had an interface like that.
  7. I just sold off the rest of my game collection, which was pretty big. I was planning on keeping the 2600 cause it was what got me started on classic games and what I've spent the most time and money on. But I haven't had time to actually play any games lately, and I could really use money for other projects. What do you guys think?
  8. At one point I meant to change my profile picture to this...
  9. Why does there have to be a brotherhood for everything? I don't really have anything against it, but it seems kind of redundant.
  10. Yeah, I'm sure Air Raid is the GREATEST conspiracy in American history. Geez, those guys are full blown wackaloons.
  11. I'd get rid of my Panasonic 3DO, cause I already want to anyway. It was just an impulse buy, CIB for $30. I really don't ever use it, except for when I'm thinking about putting it on ebay and have to make sure it still works.
  12. It's been a while since I've been seriously into buying or collecting any video games, but the other day I was thinking about some games I came across a few years ago. I used to have a guy at my local flea market who ran a video game booth and sold me Atari games, often giving me the first pick whenever he got a new batch. But one time I went there, his friend had just bought a huge lot of various games and accessories from some guy. I can't remember a whole lot of what the guy got, just a lot of stuff in original boxes. I remember seeing a stack of shrinkwrapped and boxed 2600 games I couldn't believe. In the stack, I remember seeing Glib, Quest for Quintana Roo, Boing!,Out of Control, and a couple Bomb titles I didn't get to examine. Unfortunately, I never had the chance (or money) to pick up any of these games. Anybody else here ever find rare games that you had to pass on?
  13. Does anybody have much experience with these? I just got one in a box lot at an auction. It powers up fine with the power supply, and does a memory test. However, when I try to get it to read disks, it says "Diskette removal or drive not ready". I think the floppy drives are the problem, because none of my disks are working. Does anybody know how to replace the drives?
  14. Speaking of Knight Rider, I decided to stop at one of my local flea markets today...
  15. I really enjoy my Atari 1040ST. But I also really like my Atari 2600 because it's the biggest part of my collection.
