  1. The NDA that is stopping the Historian from telling his full story will expire before this thing is released.
  2. I have purchased some NTSC consoles from the AtariAge Marketplace forums and had them sent to Australia. It was several years ago, I got a Jaguar and a 2600. I cant remember how much I paid but it was definitely less than eBay prices at the time. For the power supply you can get one from Jaycar that lets you select voltage and has interchangeable connections.
  3. I have Atari Vault but I have never used the online multiplayer myself. I would like to try it though.
  4. I think they are trying to respond to the Amico update about having exclusive versions of Atari games.
  5. I hope this help. Sounds like an interesting project. If you are looking to improve the CompuMate it would be great if there was a way to use a modern keyboard, and maybe load and save via SD card.
  6. Princess Rescue (boxed) Boulder Dash I know there was only 250 copies of Boulder Dash but I think there was even less copies of Princess Rescue.
  7. Batman Group have ported Pinball Dreams to the Amstrad CPC and it is amazing. Here is some videos but it looks even better on the CPC monitor as it was programmed to take advantage of some hardware quirks. Very impressive for an 8-bit computer. Also here is a teaser of their next game:

  9. It would be the same, just that the audio is coming from a different source. For example a MP3 player http://atariage.com/forums/topic/188884-using-mp3-files-with-starpath-supercharger/
  10. Even deeper.... https://v2.cryptii.com/morsecode/binary
  11. https://store.steampowered.com/app/367670/Controller_Companion/ This program lets you use the controller as a mouse. You can also use it to set up profiles to control games that don't have controller support.
  12. After the initial flood of backers it has really slowed down to a slow drip. I think most people who want one have already backed it. My guess is it might reach 10,000 backers. During the Retro VGS Indiegogo someone was using some software to predict the final total. Does anyone know how that was done?
  13. The Retron77 will have an SD card slot. They want to include some homebrew games on the SD card that is included with the console.
  14. I can confirm it works on a Core 2 Duo with a GTX 550.
  15. You can also get USB cables to charge to Wii U Gamepad. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/USB-Data-Charging-Charger-Cable-Cord-for-Nintendo-WII-U-Gamepad-Controller/302192314566?epid=512373294&hash=item465c10c8c6:g:L6UAAOSw5cNYhE10 If you have some with Wii remotes and Classic Controllers there are many Wii U games that can use them, like Mario Kart, Smash Bros and Minecraft. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/2x-White-Classic-Pro-JoyPad-GamePad-Game-Controller-for-Nintendo-Wii-Console-AU/170638863306?epid=593319898&hash=item27bade6bca:g:43oAAOSw-wJaDqhn Avoid this controller. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Nintendo-Wii-Wii-U-WIRELESS-Remote-Controller-Pro-SNES-GamePad-Joystick-Classic/273168692207?hash=item3f9a1f73ef:g:gQcAAOSwjqVZI74Z It is so bad, it isn't even a Pro controller, it is Wiimote and Classic Controller stuffed inside a case. It has problems when you try to push more than one button. This is made by the same company who were going to do the Coleco Chameleon/Retro VGS controllers. There are not as many games for the Wii U but there are some great quality ones. Mario 3D World is excellent. The eShop, internet browser and Online play are still available but Miiverse has been shut down.
