  2. 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/
  3. Even deeper.... https://v2.cryptii.com/morsecode/binary
  4. I was watching this video about the Gizmondo. They spent millions promoting it and sold less than 25,000. Which is still probably double what the AtariVCSbox will sell. If you think the Ataribox saga has been crazy check out this video.
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. I can confirm it works on a Core 2 Duo with a GTX 550.
  9. 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.
  10. You can buy extra parts, there is extra rubber bands in box. You could probably make your own replacements. https://store.nintendo.com/ng3/browse/subcategory.jsp?categoryId=cat960195 Also you can now get the plans as PDF files and use your own cardboard. https://www.nintendo.co.jp/labo/parts/ I got the Variety Pack kit for the kids yesterday and it has kept them entertained for hours. They made the house kit yesterday and they are making the motorbike kit now. It might seem expensive for cardboard but it is school holidays here and this will keep them entertained all week with the kit, then they can start making their own stuff too with the Toy Con Garage.
  11. Here is what has been happening with the "Coleco" brand owners. http://atariage.com/forums/topic/265739-coleco-strong-arming-homebrew-publishers-and-fan-sites/?do=findComment&comment=3764888
  12. There was the Gameline service. Also the Compumate keyboard, or even the Atari Keyboard controllers. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/GameLine
  13. No I haven't contacted them. I just assumed they only do repairs and wouldn't sell the individual parts to do your own repairs, but it is worth a try. I will send them an email. Thanks for the suggestion.
  14. I use Xbox 360 controllers. With Windows 10 you can just plug them in and it will detect them, with other versions you just install the driver. The button configuration on Xbox controllers seems to be the standard for most PC games.You can use wired controllers via USB or get a receiver to use wireless controllers. If you have games that don't use the controller I would recommend "Controller Companion" on Steam. You can map the sticks and buttons on your controller to keys or the mouse. I have an official wireless controller but the cheap wired controllers we have also work fine. I prefer the D-pad on the cheap ones.
  15. I found some parts on eBay, but they are for the GamePad but look like they will be the same as the Pro Controller. https://www.ebay.com/itm/PCB-Board-with-Analog-Stick-for-Nintendo-Wii-U-GamePad-Controller-Left-Right-Se/282693531264?hash=item41d1d8f680:g:JF8AAOSwlRZZ3BwR Even better would be to place the whole PCB but it looks like the GamePad one is a different size.
