  1. Whew, old history, nice necro! I have long since moved this unit on, but I don't recall any lock-ups when I was using this mod. Others may have better advice for you if you are more specific about the exact BIOS you used, and then the specific games that are locking. Details of lock-up (when it happens, what it looks like), will probably help people, too. I'm sure SOMEONE will have an idea if you give that information! -a2a
  2. Hey, nifty! I will be interested to read the build-log ! I'm sure it will be a better 2600 portable than the ones I have seen in the stores recently ! I still have my board, but never got around to adding a ROM into the blank slot. Mostly because I couldn't figure out how to design a pull-up resistor that would turn OFF the soldered-in ROM when a REAL cartridge was slotted in!
  3. Could someone be so kind as to link me to a U.S. seller of SMD switches that would work for the FinalGROM99 ? I foolishly requested a board WITHOUT switches and LEDs, before I knew about c0d3m4st4's excellent 3D-printed case. I just ordered a case from him, and would like to take advantage of the 3D buttons that he includes. I have plenty of 5mm LEDs, but am having a hard time digging through parts lists online to find a perfect fit for the SMD switch... Thanks in advance to anyone that can assist! It might be useful for others, too!
  4. PM sent, this is great timing, just got a "new" TI-99 and am looking forward to this!
  5. Understandable, FTP sites can get hammered, no matter what sort of limits you set up. Looks like I got what I needed for the moment, so no worries, carry on! Thanks for the reply!
  6. Thank you! That is very kind of you. I appreciate it! Everything else on the Internet wants to give me a solution, and I just want the list of possible commands and general instructions so I can figure it out myself! Great scan, by the way, excellent quality!
  7. Password seems to have been reset? Would love access, am looking for 'Return to Pirate's Isle' manual scan, maybe it's there? Thanks!!
  8. Great looking set of fun stuff! I'm looking for a simple computer for my toddler, since it's what I grew up playing with. I'll shoot you a PM and see if we can work something out!

    You can't, actually. Best bet is to stalk eBay, where one might appear every few months. Here's the last few: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Cuttle-Cart-2-New-Atari-7800-Chad-Schells-Electronics-Rare-/222177770272?hash=item33bad3bb20:g:5o0AAOSwXeJXfCP8 http://www.ebay.com/itm/Atari-7800-Cuttle-Cart-2-Multi-Cart-by-Chad-Schell-Multicart-/131751854295?nma=true&si=XKtx919%252BDS1AQMWguizRHXLPN%252BQ%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 Definitely need a new product to fill this niche in the marketplace... -a2a
  10. Beautiful... Too bad the game will never see the light of day! A project long-abandoned. Who knows, maybe someone else will pick up the banner and charge forward.
  11. Excellent device. I owned one, as well as the USB-GDROM. After extensive testing, I sold the GD-EMU and kept the USB-GDROM. I like the USB hard drive access way better than faffing about with SD cards and programs to manage the menus, etc. As well, the ordering process for the GD-EMU is epic, and there is VERY limited availability for devices. The USB-GDROM, however, can be ordered today from Stone Age Gamer: http://www.stoneagegamer.com/dreamcast-usb-en.html There are valid pros and cons for both devices, so it will boil down to what the best-fit for your end-use scenario is. Game on!
  12. Sorry, chief - - long, long, long gone! eBay still has a few Adaptoids show up each month, set an alert and you will eventually find one. Good luck! -a2a
  13. I think the resistors are required because the output from the TIA is too "bright" and maybe would be distorted and loud without them? You should try what you suggest, though, maybe by just using alligator clips instead of soldering, and then report back on how it does or does not work. That definitely would be a great addition to the conversation! I'd be interested to hear if it works. -a2a
  14. Another round of Deunan's GDEMU orders will open up on July 1. You can read about it here: http://gdemu.wordpress.com/2014/06/25/gluttons-for-punishment/ Oh, and for anyone concerned about ordering from him based on recent posts - I wouldn't be worried. He is incredibly business-like, professional, and to the point - provided that you are the same. He has answered multiple emails from me (I see around 10 in my thread with him) regarding a variety of ordering and technical questions, and each reply was courteously and completely answered within less than a day. Everything was shipped well-packaged, with tracking, and arrived safely. The device is fantastic, if you are comfortable with and understand the precise specifications he clearly provides on his website. Perfect disc emulation at more than twice the native speed in most situations, and without the grinding noise of the GD-ROM. I couldn't be happier. I wouldn't hesitate to do business with him. 10/10, would use teh Internetz again. -a2a
