  1. All the best, CPUWiz. Hope to see you typing from home soon.
  2. Really sad news. A man who left a bright mark in our hobby and in Atari history. If you don´t have a copy yet, please consider buying Curt & Marty Goldberg book: "Atari Inc., Business is Fun". Not only a great source of information but also a way to keep Curt´s memory alive & support his family. https://www.amazon.com/Atari-Inc-Business-Curt-Vendel/dp/0985597402
  3. I’m fine with that. EDIT: wouldn’t the unfolded, uncut boxes be at right risk of damage while shipping? 🤔 You might have to use a large box to prevent it taking a beating...
  4. It´s the same box. Have the same marks and scruffs. I guess maybe the seller is trying to squeeze some cash from that other buyer who paid 2k2 for a loose copy?
  5. Would you please let us know when they’re available for purchase? Those are awesome. 🙂
  6. I´ll keep my eyes open then. Thank you. 🙂
  7. I believe I am in the wait list for trimerous but haven´t received any news regarding it. Where do I check this? Thank you!
  8. Already interviewed Mr. Leandro Sá (50% of MWG, with Darcio Prestes) when Rally Racer was released. Mr. Flávio Nunez declined to be interviewed. I´ll try to find my original article and do a rough translation.
  9. Hi there! Yes, you can find it here:
  10. Hi All, I´m a writer for a Brazilian retro gaming magazine called "Jogos 80". We´re running a series of interviews with distinguished Atari homebrewers. In this edition I was lucky enough to chat with Mr. Johh Champeau (AKA @johnnywc ), from Champ Games. It was a very interesting chat! Attached are two different files: The original PDF (in Brazilian Portuguese) with screenshots and the magazine cover, and an english translation for you guys. The magazine is purposedly designed to look like a very popular brazilian magazine from the 80s called "Micro & Video", thus the (very) dated design. It is on purpose, believe it or not! 🙂 Hope you guys enjoyed it as much as we enjoying doing it! John Champeau Interview - ENGLISH.pdf John Champeau Interview - ORIGINAL.pdf
  11. Oh! About the print-it-yourself: There are four images inside that zip file. They look odd but were created as a booklet. You can see small markings on the borders to show were to cut, and a small central marking showing were to fold. So how you print it? Print page 01. The put that paper back in your printer and print page 02 on the back. Same goes for 3 & 4. I´ve used Microsoft Paint (really!). Just use print preview, "configure page" and check the boxes for horizontal and vertical centralization and "100% normal size" instead of "fit to page". This way the printing will match in both sides. Then fold them together in half. And finally using a box cutter and a ruler just cut the extra paper. Final step, staple it if you wish. Here’s the final result:
  12. Hello, Nuts is a Technovision game that originally only saw a PAL release in German. Recently Mr. @Thomas Jentzsch managed to convert it to NTSC, and Mr. @CPUWIZ ran a limited, high-quality cart release. Joining the gang Mr. @Marc Oberhäuser created a great-looking, professionally printed box for this cart. Unfortunately, there was no english manual for the combo - the only manual available was a watermarked scan on the german manual online. Long story short, myself & Mr. @Ballblaɀer joined efforts to translate this manual, so we could have a CIB Franken-release of the game. 🙂 Attached you can find the end result. There are three available files: - Nuts_Manual.pdf: A plain PDF that you can open on you computer or mobile. - Nuts_Manual_HOME_PRINT.zip: A file you can print and assemble yourself at home. - Nuts_Manual_PROFESSIONAL_PRINT.zip: A PDF file with all markings required for professional printing and binding at a dedicated shop. Hope you guys enjoy. 🙂 Nuts_Manual.pdf Nuts_Manual_HOME_PRINT.zip Nuts_Manual_PROFESSIONAL_PRINT.pdf
  13. Thank you guys! @KylJoy I’d love to but since I’m ouside USA shipping in and out might be prohibitive. 😞 I’ll check it anyway. Are those memory chips easy to find? Or are they somewhat uncommon?
  14. The console is in great cosmetic shape. I’ve opened it and the board is in pristine condition - no stuffed capacitors, no leakages, no obvious solder failures. But all I get when power it up is garbage. The pattern is variable. Reset makes no difference. Plugging a cart won’t change a thing. I’ve tried to keep it on for a few minutes to charge capacitors. No changes. Touching the chips don’t show one of them hotter than the others. Any ideas of what it might be? Simple stuff like capacitors or voltage regulators? Or most probably a bad chip? Suggestions are welcome.
