  1. Retroware's The Video Game Years finally gets to 1985. Hosts breathe sighs of relief.

  2. Added a working 5.25" 1.2MB FDD to my 486 box!

      Congrats! My only working 5.25-inch drive at the moment is a TEAC FD-505 (the 3.5"/5.25" combo drive). Definitely need to pick up some more.

    2. boxpressed


      Mine's a TEAC too. I decided to forego eBay and go straight to a reputable seller on Amibay.

  3. Roland MT-32 & SoftMPU = Win!

  4. Accumulating vintage PC video and sound cards at an alarming rate.

    1. atari2600land


      Well then stop.

    2. boxpressed


      We wouldn't be on these boards if we could stop.

      One of these days I need to add a sound card and a hard drive somehow to my 5160. :/

  5. Dragon Quest VIII released for iOS. Best JRPG ever?

  6. Playing Tyrian (DOS) with Hanaho HotRod and SLG3000!

  7. Just loaded Doom 2 on a Win 98SE laptop. Still awesome after 20 years.

      Agreed; I still play the Doom games on the PC and Jag.

      I forgot about Brutal Doom. I'll have to try to load it, thanks.

      with a few tweaks i got it to work on my win 7 dell inspiron laptop)

  8. eBay Bucks Day!

    1. wongojack


      I guess I could search on it, but what is "ebay Bucks Day?"

    2. boxpressed


      It's the day when eBay Bucks are disbursed. Happens four times a year.

      Wish I would have known about this a while ago, although eBay does spew out alot of stuff.. i probably overlooked it. I signed up now.. I know that! Lol Thanks for posting.

      make time for House of the Dead 2!


    3. boxpressed


      I bought this particular lot partly because it came with HotD 2 and a light gun. Won't be able to use the VGA box with it unless I can scare up a CRT monitor.

    4. atarian63


      May work with a CRT VGA


  10. Broke out the 800 CTIA for some 5200 conversion goodness.

      I tried to sell it a couple of years ago for pretty cheap (~$90)but couldn't. I'm glad I kept it. Beautiful machine.

    3. Bryan


      I was also surprised at how low my CTIA machine sold for.

    4. boxpressed


      I think it is desirable only for completeists and collectors. I'm sure it would have sold if I had listed it just as an Atari 800 and not mentioned that it had an "older" graphics chip.

  11. Happy MLK Day, Atari Age!

    1. retrorussell


      Hooray! I get it off.

    2. jaybird3rd


      "I get it off."


      Ugh, I don't want to know ...

  12. Officially an Astrocade hoarder now. Up to 9 and counting.

    2. JadeETC


      I would like one.

    3. boxpressed


      Oh, I didn't mean this to be a FS thread. I'm just trying to figure out why I can't stop buying these. About half of them don't work anyway.

    4. iesposta


      Yes! I can't stop buying 2600's. I've tried to get Astrocade, but no luck.

  13. Just completed my first purchase on Gamegavel. Very satisfied.

  14. Everyone in the house asleep ... safe to wear the Vectrex 3D Imager.

      Don't wear it too long or you will become Jobe from the Lawnmower Man!

  15. Another Astrocade bites the dust. :(

      Don't they have an overheating issue? There should be a way to put a couple video card heatsinks on the chip to help with the heat

    3. BassGuitari


      Same thing happened to me with three different Astrocades. Condolences! :(

    4. boxpressed


      Trouble is, when the OC overheats, the damage is done. I was running with a laptop cooler AND with the RF shield AND top plastic cover off. Not much more I could have done. I'm glad another can feel my pain, BassGuitari. This is my third too.

  16. Reading old Dragon Magazine PDFs on my Kindle DX. Good times.

  17. UltiMulti for the Astrocade arrived yesterday!

  18. Warning: If you have a PC with USB 3.0, don't update your iPad software using the USB 3.0 port!

    1. SoulBlazer


      I'm guessing Apple screwed up again? ;)

    2. boxpressed


      Yeah, the update won't install properly, and then Itunes won't even recognize the iPad until it is plugged into a 2.0 port. Then you have to restore to factory state, then restore everything else.
