  1. You can now edit the first post indefinitely. If you need the ability to edit other posts, you can send me a PM directly and I can help you (links to specific posts are helpful, you can click on the post number to get a direct link to that post). ..Al
  2. I received the fifth (!) round of manual proofs last week, and they all looked great! The order finally went into production and I should have the manuals by the end of this week. There are some reprints of earlier manuals above as well. There are no Jaguar manuals in the above image, as I didn't need to run proofs for them again. However, the entire order needs to be printed together, which is now being done. I'll have more physical proofs for the labels this week, and if those look good they will also go into production. The light at the end of the tunnel is getting closer! I'm really looking forward to getting these new games out to everyone! ..Al
  3. I received the fifth (!) round of manual proofs last week, and they all looked great! The order finally went into production and I should have the manuals by the end of this week. There are some reprints of earlier manuals above as well that you can see in the above image (Colony 7, Conquest of Mars, Epic Adventure, etc.). But most of the manuals above are for new games, and this doesn't include the Jaguar manuals (didn't need to run those proofs again). I'll have more physical proofs for the labels this week, and if those look good they will also go into production. The light at the end of the tunnel is getting closer!

    Those patents are all long-expired, anyone can develop a system these days that plays 2600 games. Just don't try to make your system look like an original Atari console, as they can attempt to go after you for infringing on trade dress. It's just much more expensive to develop hardware that mimics the original 2600, versus using cheap modern hardware that can easily emulate the 2600 (with varying degrees of success). The Flashback 2 developed by Curt Vendel years ago actually did use proper hardware that allowed you to run binaries natively, and it could be modified with a cartridge port to use physical cartridges. There are some FPGA solutions as well, such as the CollectorVision Phoenix, that will let you play 2600 as if they are running on the original hardware. I believe you can only load games via the SD card slot with the Phoenix, not sure if they ever created an adapter that lets you use 2600 cartridges. ..Al
  6. The manuals finally went into production last week, so I should have them by the end of next week or early next (they were supposed to ship them Friday, but don't think that happened so hopefully Monday). Several labels (non-Jaguar games) had to be revised so they would print better (black, I hate black), and I will have proofs of those in a few days. Assuming they look good, they will also go into production and it'll take probably ten days to receive them. Beyond that, I have been building and testing games so I can label and ship them once the labels arrive. I will be so glad to get all these games shipped! ..Al
  7. Yeah, I was expecting photos of more games piled up somewhere else, but looks like it was just that one closet. Seller states there are about 125 games, so that averages $80 per game, I'm sure some of those are certainly worth more than that, while others are worth less. Not a board game collector myself, but I'm sure there are many collectors out there. ..Al
  8. Thank you for writing all this up, as well as your followup post today. I appreciate it, and it gives me a sense of what I'm in for once I start going down this road soon. As soon as I get caught up shipping pre-order games in the store, I will devote time to this as I'd really like to be able to start shipping directly to the UK again. I do have a question -- what are the requirements when someone purchases something from you in terms of what you need to display either after the purchase is complete and/or on a receipt/packing list in terms of VAT? Thanks again, ..Al
  9. Oh, I know that. It starts right at the top, and beyond that I don't want to get into politics here on AtariAge. ..Al
  10. I'm not going to argue with that, I'm not a big fan of Facebook myself and primarily use it for AtariAge-related tasks. ..Al
  11. It is not a scam because you are apparently unaware there have been shipping delays for nearly the entirety of 2020 due to COVID-19, continuing thus far into 2021. Also, Fred Quimby has been building and selling these Harmony Carts for YEARS without issue and has tons of happy customers. It is not his fault that shipping (especially to international destinations) is taking so long, and I'm somewhat astounded that you've come here immediately stating this is a SCAM and are seemingly ignorant of shipping delays that have been well-publicized for quite some time now. Again, please be patient. It's the last time I'm going to say this. ..Al
  12. LOL that is one bizarre looking vehicle. Unfortunately the problem with USPS is management. ..Al
  13. I shipped a package to Canada last month. It made it to Dallas, then went BACK to Austin, then got stuck in a loop between my town (bordering Austin) and Austin, going back and fourth EIGHT TIMES over the course of two weeks. After multiple visits to the post office, they were finally able to intercept the package. However, now they cannot find it, even though it's supposedly at my local post office. I had to send the customer another package. And I had another international package start to do the same thing while this other package was stuck in this seemingly infinite loop. Fortunately that one managed to unstick itself. I'm thoroughly unimpressed with the USPS right now. ..Al
