  1. Misfits Escape from the London Dungeon. It would be a hack of Berzerk. You have as many lives as there have been members of the Misfits. Your lives will be represented with devilocks and the player will be wearing a devilock. The robots will be changed to skeletons throwing bones and warlocks shooting bolts of lightening out of there hands. Evil Otto would be replaced by the Crimson Ghost. There will be an Easter egg if you attack the Crimson Ghost when your score is 666(any 666. 2666, 10666...). When you attack at 666 he spins around the room and disappears. After he disappears the Berzerk maze becomes an actual maze and you have to find the Crimson Ghost. When you find the Crimson Ghost he will be in a room with his Cyclotrode "X". Your score will be the countdown of the Cyclotrode "X". You must defeat the Crimson Ghost and destroy the Cyclotrode "X" before the clock runs out or it will cause a major electrical short in all Atari systems. If you win it goes to a scene showing the Misfits digging up Marilyn Monroe's body. It will be a hint for the sequel. Misfits: The Search for the Bride of Frankenstein.
  2. So it is the one and only super faded Galaxian end label with a rarity of 10?
  3. I saw this lot on Ebay. In one of the pictures the end label to Galaxian is black and white. I never seen that before. Is there a label variation like that, could it be caused by fading or something, could it be home made, or what? eBay Auction -- Item Number: 220741397937
  4. Heavy 6er to VCR, VCR composite to composite/s-video switch box, switch box out to s-video into TV. Still not perfect but looks nice.
  5. My parents took me to Toys 'R' Us to pick out an Atari game. I picked out Taz. When I got home I was blown away when I saw this on my TV:
  6. I've been playing Tempest in Flatland(Turmoil). Turmoil looks so awesome that I use it for testing the picture. I've been hooking up my Ataris different ways trying to get the best picture. I try different Ataris, rf cables, coaxial to TV, through VCR into composite/s-video switch box... I have also been playing it to test my joysticks to see which need fixed and to test my new cx-10s.
  7. Its not your responsibility, no. However, it is in your best interest. I agree but how would I know what knowledge they lack? What if I explain in perfect detail how I want it but then they trip and fall off a mountain with my package because I assumed they knew how to tie their shoes? If you're serious, that's absurd. Just make sure they agree to package it properly in an outer box. That's it. It's pretty simple. It doesn't need to be any more complex than that. You might be killed by a runaway yak before the item is ever delivered to you, so why do you even go on ebay to begin with, since you could be dead via yak at any instant without warning. If you want to go into absurd arguments. I'm serious. There is no limit to ignorance. I did what you just said but my explanation wasn't good enough.

  9. A Brazilian guy on Ebay thought the case of my Dactar 007 was made out of an indestructible material invented by Q. I don't believe it was my responsibility to educate him about the importance of layers of bubble wrap and that his failure to use layers of bubble wrap is an act of war against the United States.
  10. My father used to play Pac-man all the time. He seemed to be good at it but I was around four or five so maybe he was horrible . He stopped playing video games when my brother got an NES for Christmas because it's controller had way too many buttons and no joystick. I was also confused by the controller but was willing to learn. Anyway, when I played Jr. Pac-man for the first time I was amazed by it's graphics and the maze size. I don't remember if I rolled it over but I do remember that the size of the maze made it easy for me to avoid the ghosts and I could play as long as I wanted. I remember playing for hours and being proud of myself because I was better than dad.
  11. Maybe, but it's not clear (to me at least) whether there was a single H6er board with multiple revisions, or whether there were several H6er boards (represented by a unique CO#) each with multiple revisions. Where are you getting your information for the timeline of Tawian H6er production? The Heavy Sixer thread. Inside all Tawain Heavy Sixers are made by dates. Here is the list of people who checked this out. #81607536 djmips (Dimerco Taiwan, Board is REVB C010433, Shred of paper taped inside is stamped Aug 13 1981) #T0016436 dpg- Taiwan build date of July 8/1978 on a tag taped to the sheilding inside #T0028494 pangmaster Taiwan build date of July 15, 1978 on a tag taped to the sheilding inside #T0030500 Uzumaki Paper tape on RF shield date stamped Jul 19 1978 As you can see all 4 that were checked came within this 1 month and a half time line. http://www.atariage.com/forums/topic/76656-the-official-heavy-sixer-serial-%23-list/page__view__findpost__p__935860 I didn't notice a date on mine. Would they ever be inside the RF shield?
  12. So, mine was made in July. Where is the manufacturing date inside? I didn't notice one. 1 in 50,000 sounds rare. I wonder how many of those 50,000 are still functioning.
  13. We would all like to have a detailed history. There are bits and pieces of it here and there, but the complete picture just isn't out there. Obviously, we have enough evidence to debunk the Sunnyvale myth, but dating the H6er's is still just reasoned guesswork. And that's probably all it will ever be. How does the reasoned guesswork work? The current working theory is that Heavy Sixers (Sunnyvale) were produced in batches of 100,000. Individual units carry stickers on their undersides that are printed with a serial # of the form xxxxxY, where xxxxx is the production # (0-99,999) and Y is the batch letter, starting with E and ending with P on Atari units, and starting with R and ending with V on Sears units. I and O are skipped. E units are believed to be the earliest, with batches becoming progressively younger in alphabetical fashion. However, this is really just a rough understanding. There are exceptions to this pattern, such as the un-refurbished two-sticker units with original sub-10,000 numbers and no letter suffix. It's unclear where they fit into the picture. Moreover, no suffixed # has been found below 10,000, so the batch sizes are probably smaller than 100,000. Furthermore, some early light sixers carry H6er-form serial numbers. Lots of speculation here Thanks! Mine says T0045896. On the board it says co12173 Rev-1 C 77. I take that to mean revision one and 1977. I'm trying to see if phaxda is correct in his link about the top being a light sixer. I don't see anything modded. The bottom holes line up will all the top holes. All I see is some kind of glue that was used to maybe fix cracked pieces. I wonder if there is any truth to the gap though. I have seen them with the gap and without. Here is one with a gap like mine: My link What are the differences between a heavy and light top?

  15. It's already a well-known and established fact that some H6er's were made in Taiwan. Likewise, light-sixers weren't just made in Taiwan, some were also made in Sunnyvale. Same with 4-switchers too. Do you have any links about this fact? Just search these forums. This myth has been discussed and debunked here numerous times. Moreover, several individuals here actually own Taiwan H6er's and Sunnyvale Lights. I've searched and haven't found what I'm looking for. I found enough to establish this fact but I would like a detailed history including how to date a heavy 6er based on it's serial number.
  16. welcome - i find your "missing Link" hypothesis interesting. but i still believe the atari is based on intelligent design. Then how do you explain the 5200 controller?

  18. This is my first post so hello. I purchased your Taiwan heavy 6er on Ebay. I was looking for a heavy 6er and your description sounded interesting: "Tested and working great. Tag says "manufactured in Sunnyvale" and "Made in Taiwan" so I'm not sure what the deal is with that. I have never seen one like it. Console only." I knew no one would bid high because of that and it made it sound rarer than a Sunnyvale. I researched it a little before bidding and I have a different theory. I believe all heavy 6rs coming from Sunnyvale is a myth because I have seen others confused about their Made in Taiwan heavy 6er. The usual story is USA=Heavy and Overseas=Light. Why such a jump? Why no transition? Could there be a missing link? I think what most likely happened was at the end of the heavy 6er life there were a few Taiwan heavy 6ers right before the birth of the light 6er. Since they are rarer then both the Sunnyvale heavy 6ers and the light 6ers people believe there was no transition. I could be wrong but an Atari for $34.99 that looks like a heavy 6er and has a mystery behind it is a good deal to me. This is one of the things I found while researching it: My link
