  1. Thankfully, this is no longer the case! New CC2 files were released by @Mitch earlier this year. This has changed everything for the ol' CC2! What an awesome feat of gaming excitement this is! I was able to get this to load with no hesitation on my CC2 and play this on real Atari 7800 hardware by using the following menu entries: 7800: EXO EXO210 7256R16 78BIOS Use tabs for the MENU.TXT file and spaces for the MENU.CC2 file. New banking schemes for the Cuttle Cart 2 are located here. As always, don't forget to remove the first 128 bytes of any .A78 file to convert it to a .BIN file.
  2. This is an incredible game, and thank you for sharing! I will be following development on this. I was able to get this to load on my CC2 and play this on real Atari 7800 hardware by making the following menu entries: 7800: Knight Guy KNIGHTGY7144P 78BIOS Use tabs for the MENU.TXT file and spaces for the MENU.CC2 file. New banking schemes for the Cuttle Cart 2 are located here. As always, don't forget to remove the first 128 bytes of any .A78 file to convert it to a .BIN file.
  3. Awesome start to what will no doubt be an awesome game! I was able to get this to load on my CC2 and play this on real Atari 7800 hardware by making the following menu entries: 7800: Into The Void ITVB5 7048 78BIOS Use tabs for the MENU.TXT file and spaces for the MENU.CC2 file. New banking schemes for the Cuttle Cart 2 here. Lastly, don't forget to remove the first 128 bytes of any .A78 file to convert it to a .BIN file.
  4. Very cool! I had no idea Sydney’s HQ was here in San Diego. That’s two 1980s game developers with SD headquarters (the other being Steven Stack of Red Sea Crossing [Atari]). Interestingly, each developer had at least one unpublished game. I only wish there were some remnants of their facilities or the stock, but sadly these are just spaces occupied by different tenants now. Edit: I see that it was Dataproducts, Inc. as the [presumed] developer. Still cool!
  5. I wanted to echo this experience. I tried the 8bitdo Bluetooth dongle attached to my new ikonsgr 5200 to 2600 adapter. The blue LED on the dongle fast-blinks, but is not fully illuminated. I haven’t measured the voltage, but it appears underpowered. @ikonsgr is there a way to pass through the appropriate voltage from your most excellent adapter? From my quick research, there is +5v on pin 12 of the 5200 controller jack. I think that this product is not a clone of the Masterplay per sé—rather a replacement to it—and the engineering is vastly improved!
  6. Nice to see that this thread has reached 10 pages! Received mine today after nearly 2 full months! These are superb home-engineered products, and worth the wait! I will be trying this out with my new $40 clicky stick from eBayer oghugo (also a superb product)!
  7. I wanted to try this out on my CC2, so I revisited these posts. Using the new CC2 banking files (specifically 144RPK) provided buy Mitch, I was able to get this superb game loaded properly into the 7800! Here is my CC2 entry for the menu.txt file: 7800: Spire of the Ancients SOTA 144RPK 78BIOS Load the ROM (SOTA.BIN) into the /GAMES directory, and make sure you duplicate this entry into your menu.cc2 file (using spaces, not tabs). This is a truly outstanding, quality 3D effort, and for that I thank you @SmittyB! I'm still learning how to play the game. It plays amazingly well on real 7800 hardware.
  8. This game is quite an amazing feat, and I hope it works wonderfully for anyone using real Atari 7800 hardware! Millie & Molly has great POKEY music, terrific pixel art, and fun puzzler action. Thank you @mksmith for providing the demo!
  9. I was one of the very lucky people to acquire a Cuttle Cart 2 last year. I was a little confused at first, but I read all the documentation and took the time to (re) discover the technology. Please enjoy what I have assembled here. Simply clone the directories to the root of your MMC card. You'll have to download the ROMs separately I'd say 97% of those indexed are freely downloadable here (thanks to @Trebor) In place of the actual ROMs (.bins), I have included a TXT file (in the GAMES folder) with my mostly up-to-date list. Thanks to @Mitch and this thread for the most up-to-date support in years. Those banking files are included in this download. CC2_06_2020.zip
  10. Super impressive work all around. Insta-buy once they are published!
  11. That’s wild. I love Zippy Race! So mellow, so cool, and eeeeasy going (good for present times). I’ve gotten past Vegas, but it’s been a while since I’ve played. I think the full CollectorVision family of games is overall amazing. Sadly, there are a few duds, but I totally appreciate CollectorVision’s willingness to publish enthusiast’s creative works! I’m glad they’re in the game of small-time publishing, and I will always support them.
  12. I finally got around to copying this to my CC2 using the following in my .TXT file: 7800: Pac-man Collection (XM) PMC_XM 78SCP450 78BIOS This is a true feat of amazement! I love the title screen and all of the available game variations. The speed-up option is terrific! The TIA and POKEY sounds are fantastic! I'm getting rock-solid graphics on my S-Video modded system. This might be the definitive collection of the classic Pac-Man line-up! Thank you for making this available Bob!
  13. Thanks a million for posting this! Steve isn’t very active on the Atarimax forums, so I really appreciate you making this available. I was on firmware version 20160609 so I was eager to update. The 20190610 firmware has made a difference! The Atarimax reset button works consistently now and sends me back to the main menu every time. This had always been a flustering operation prior. Thank you @classics wherever you are!
  14. I’m using the last one that was released by Chad Schell (2.01).
  15. I just copied a few .A78 files to my CC2 and created the correct entries in the TXT and flat files. The problem I'm encountering is that the CC2 natively seeks .BIN files, so when I tell it to look for a filename with the .A78 extension, it can't seek it. Wouldn't the CC2 need a firmware update to address that? EDIT: I see the Python file. I'm not entirely familiar with how to execute the .py code, but I'm sure I can figure it out with a little coaching.
