  1. FOR SALE: Cuttle Cart by Schell's Electronics for Atari 2600 Price: $250 shipped ( in the USA. ) I will ship international but will need to get quote for shipping. Includes Cuttle Cart, Instruction manual, and 3.5" floppy disk with software also: FUJINET adaptor for Atari 8-bit computers Price: $67 shipped ( in the USA. ) I will ship international but will need to get quote for shipping. "FujiNet is a network adapter that attaches to the SIO (Peripheral) port of an Atari 8-bit system. FujiNet is planned to provide the following functionality: "D:" Emulation, to virtually mount, read, and write ATR disk images over a protocol borrowed from the Spectranet community called TNFS.

Please send me a private message if interested. thanks, Tim
  2. Keep trying. Hint: Use the search engine google.com to look up information about the movie.
  3. If your MEAN SANTA game is playing fine, then you do not need to do anything. I have received a few emails from a few customers that a message that states “Turn Game Off before Inserting Cartridge or Expansion” appears on the TV. Or the game would start, but then it would change to all garbled graphics on the screen. Or sometimes it would just show a solid black screen. I have sent emails back to these customers and replied to them and have asked these customers to send the problematic cartridge back to me, and I would offer a replacement. Upon investigating this, it has been determined that some of the EPROMs and GAL chips that I used on the printed circuit board were failing and / or were defective. THIS IS NOT THE CASE FOR ALL OF THEM! With the problem to be fixed with a failing cartridge, the chips have to be desoldered off the printed circuit board and new ones have to be programmed and soldered on. I was hoping that I would receive the new supply of chips but they have not arrived as of yet. I am told that the USPS is overwhelmed with packages this holiday season. We are being told that "High shipping volumes are causing some delays. Please allow extra time." Again, if your game is working fine, you don't need to do anything. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to send an email or send me a private message here on Atari Age. thanks, Tim
  4. Did you know that Atari made a trak ball for the 2600 but didn't release one single game that supported it? Be sure to check out long-time 2600 CONNECTION staff writer Scott Stilphen's excellent and in-depth article "The Failed Promise of the VCS/2600 Trak-Ball Controller." http://www.ataricompendium.com/archives/articles/trak-ball/trak-ball.html I do not own a track ball for the 2600 right now. I want to get one! Years ago, in the early 1990s, I picked up one of the models that looks like the Atai 800XL at Child world or Kay Bee Toys - I cannot recall. I needed $ so I sold it. Damn! What do you think about the trak ball? Which model do you own? thanks, Tim
  5. Ebay doesn't count. Where is the brick and mortar retail store where I can go to in December 2020 to purchase a Flashback X? Sam's club? I am in Massachusetts and the closest Sam's club is in Hudson, NH and one in CT. I am not travelling that far for this. Sams club is out of stock online. Atgames.net is sold out online of everything when you click on flashback. I am trying to be optimistic, but I am afraid the end of the road has been reached. Who knows... maybe I will be proved wrong and in 2021 we will see the Flashback 11. One can dream...
  6. I heard from Zaphro72 and he said he got the link to work. May have been a problem on the paypal end. I have the materials to make 100 cartridges and manuals and boxes. It is not sold out. I will make a post here when it is coming close to being sold out. There are plenty available as of right now. I do not want anyone to panic. thanks, Tim D.
  7. Black Friday is upon us and it appears there are no deals to be found for the flashbacks. Is this the beginning of the end?
  8. I should have included a picture of the top of the game cartridge label. It says "COLECOVISION MEAN SANTA" on it. It is not on the front because I wanted to spotlight the artwork by Dan Skelton. And on the box... again, it is not on the front but it is on the side spine. It says " MEAN SANTA COLECOVISION " on it. Again, my idea here in the design is that I wanted to spotlight the artwork by Dan Skelton without anything else on it. See picture. Also on the back of the box it does state " MEAN SANTA a game for your COLECOVISION " on it. Sorry for any confusion there. thanks, Tim
  9. OK! I am happy to announce that MEAN SANTA for the COLECOVISION is now available for sale. The price is $29 plus shipping. $6 for the USA, $15 for anywhere else in the world. Includes game cartridge with color label, printed 8-page color manual, and a black plastic storage case with a color printed insert. Please visit my web site to order: http://www.2600connection.com/features/meancv/meancv.html thank you for your support & please let me know if you have any questions! Tim D.

  11. I have 20 C.I.B. SPACE RAID for the ATARI 2600 game cartridges, manuals, and boxes. The game is inspired by Zaxxon, the 1982 coin-operated arcade videogame by Sega. This is a special sale. 100% of the proceeds go to programmer Óscar Toledo Gutiérrez and his family. PLEASE NOTE: Óscar's wife Rosa Nely is battling lung cancer and they are experiencing some troubling times right now. If you would like to help, please purchase SPACE RAID for the Atari 2600! It is being sold for $50 plus shipping. Please visit my web site page at: http://www.2600connection.com/features/spaceraid/spaceraid.html or send me a private message if you would like more information. Happy Thanksgiving! thank you, Tim
  12. Not sure if many of you know, but Óscar also programs games for the ATARI 2600! He programmed SPACE RAID and I worked out an agreement with him earlier in the year to sell 50 of these games. 20 remain. These 20 remaining cartridges and manuals of SPACE RAID for the ATARI 2600 are being sold along with a professionally-printed box for $50 plus shipping. Óscar and his family will be receiving 100% of the proceeds and profits. If all 20 sell, Óscar and Rosa Nely and their family will receive $1000. Please help if you can. If you cannot help out in this cause, please pray for them and keep them in your thoughts! If you would like to order, please visit the web page I have set up for this: http://www.2600connection.com/features/spaceraid/spaceraid.html thank you, Tim
  13. Oh, man! I honestly forgot about that post from December 24, 2019: https://atariage.com/forums/topic/299888-coming-in-2020-mean-santa-for-the-colecovision/ Sorry about that, guys. Sorry to burst your bubble. It is MEAN SANTA for the COLECOVISION. No one posted about it since February 2, 2020. Right before the COVID-19 mess. Yes, it has been an odd year. And it seems like time has flown by since March 16, when everything began to shut down due to the pandemic. You can play the demo in an emulator and get a flavor of what the game is like. However, KIWI has added some cool stuff that is not present in the demo that we posted on December 24, 2019. So I hope you will consider buying it. I was just trying to do a little "snazzy" marketing and generate some interest with the countdown and the quotes from the Grinch movie from 2000 that starred Jim Carrey. Too bad.. I found a nice quote from the 2018 "THE GRINCH" computer-animated film produced by Illumination and distributed by Universal Pictures: “He swept up their presents with the speed of a wiz. And he knew he’d cause sadness, only theirs now, not his. All this excess and nonsense, it was all about greed. About meaningless stuff that they didn’t even need. He scooped up the toys. He raced against time, he raced against joy. He hit a few snags as he made his way through." OK so the cat is out of the hat, I mean, the bag. thank you for your support, Tim D.
  14. Nope... it's not Donkey Kong Arcade... It's not Dino Egg... another hint wil be posted in a few hours....
  15. OK here is today's hint about the new COLECOVISION game that is being published on Black Friday, November 27! "That’s what it’s all about, isn’t it? That’s what it’s always been about. Gifts, gifts… gifts, gifts, gifts, gifts, gifts! The avarice never ends! : I want golf clubs. I want diamonds. I want a pony so I can ride it twice, get bored and sell it to make glue.”
