  1. ^This guy... way too cool^

  2. Well, despite the Saturday debacle, it was a fun show. The fairgrounds and surrounding area got hit with a small tornado (or straight line winds, it's unclear at this moment) early Saturday morning, tearing the absolute hell out of everything. The arch that's been standing there for years and years got blown over, and looks to be incapable of being repaired. There were trees that a large man couldn't put both arms around completely tossed around like toys. Power was out for miles around, roads were closed everywhere. It was a mess. So, we turned around and came back home, but SBC's page said that Sunday would be a go if they had power. Well, they had power! All in all, it was a fun show. Marc Summers and Phil Moore were SUPER cordial and nice (I swear Phil is just a big ol' kid). Got my pictures with them. Also got pics with some of the Game Chasers guys that I hadn't met before, like Eric and Wood. Shot it with AlphaOmegaSin for a bit, too (cool guy, really friendly). Didn't buy much, just a piece of perler art and a repro Wily Wars cart. Met some old friends from OVGE there, too. Good times, and am already looking forward to next year.
  3. Next weekend everybody. Who's going? I won one of the VIP Packs, so I'll be there! #Superbitcon
  4. Well, managed to make it to this year's show as well. LOT of fun! I picked up a few goodies. A complete in box (and MINT) Custer's Revenge, which I have been looking for FOREVER. That makes 4 of the adult 2600 games in my collection, one a double-ender. The cartridge has never been inserted into a system, actually. Yeah, there's a joke there somewhere. Found me a nice CD-I for a great price. It's the Maganavox version, and it had the video cartridge already installed. Had the joypad and the spoon controller. Didn't get any games, but meh, you can burn those. Also got a Secret of Mana 2 repro. AND finally got the season one DVD of The Game Chasers. The chodes were there (I met them last year as well), and I got all 4 to sign it. I think this is actually my favorite thing I got, as I'm a big fan of those doofuses (Dodongo in particular is a RIOT), and getting to talk to them again was great. All in all, a VERY good show this year. The museum had some very interesting items (the SNES military trainer in particular was incredible). I bs'd with AlphaOmegaSin about Tim Schafer and Anita Sarkeesian, and Dodongo flipped off my camera. Good times!
  5. Oh, cool, so I don't need that DIN cable after all. Sweet. So, I use a C-64 composite cable to hook the system to a television (a DIN plug to 2 RCA male ends). The audio cable would go into the female RCA jack that's plugged into the Magic Voice, and the RCA male coming from the Magic Voice would go into the audio in on the television. Neat! I gotta hook everything up and try this now! I have both Gorf and Wizard of Wor. If I can keep it hooked in constantly while using other programs and cartridges (like my beloved Fast Loader), then it would make changing cartridges a snap, as they just go into the top of the module instead of trying to jam them into the back of the system.
  6. Well, I found a text version of the instructions (after much looking, actually). It says it comes with a, and I quote, audio cable with a PHONO end and a 5-pin DIN end. It also says you hook the DIN into the A/V plug on the C-64, and the phono plug into the audio OUT plug. I dunno, seems kinda odd. Gonna look through my cables and see if I have it. Hopefully, I do, because I see nothing online to buy, that's for sure.
  7. So, rummaging through my oddities box, I ran across one of these. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to have any cables. What cables exactly does it use? In pictures, I've seen one with what looks like a DIN connector on one end, and a smaller connector on the other, possibly an RCA (since that's what the jacks on the side of the actual Magic Voice looks like). Also, these are apparently rare? Thanks in advance to anybody who knows about this!
  8. As far as I know, Bill, my 800XL is completely stock. I also have an 800, but it's stock as well. So, the 14319 would be the power supply for the 800XL system itself, and the others would be for the disk drives and casette recorders.
  9. So, I have 5 power supplies for Atari 8-bit computers. Four of them are part number CO17945 and one is part number CO14319. They all have the same input jacks. I have 4 items that use power supplies, an Atari 800XL, 2 1010 casette drives, and a 1050 disk drive. My question is which things exactly do these go to? I'm pretty sure the CO17945 is for the 1050 drive, but I'm a bit squiffy about just trying these out willy nilly, since the power specs are different. Thanks in advance!
  10. Yep, that's it, Goldenegg. Thanks.
  11. It doesn't quite look like that one, Rex. The DIN connector is the same, but the other end is a female connector.
  12. So, I have a cable that seems like it's for the Sega Genesis. It has an 8 pin DIN connector on one end, and a 9 pin female connector on the other. It's around 5 or so inches long. On the side is written E148000 LTK Style 2835. No other markings are visible. It seems like it might be a converter cable so you can use the Genesis Model 2 AV connector with the Model 1, but I'm not sure honestly WHAT the heck it is. Any help is appreciated.
  13. Holy crap, that was you there, Shadow? Awesome! Man, what a great show. I was the guy that was showing you the Atari porn games I bought...ahem, I mean, the manly sports team game I fought a lion in a boxing ring to acquire. Yeah, that's the ticket. Anyway, man am I jealous of your collection. That Tax Avoiders was just mesmerizing... Flack, sorry I couldn't spend more time talking. I was really busy helping Nintendo-Okie set up their game show section, plus I was one of their score keepers, so I had to bolt. The game show, btw, was a HUGE success, and they had a bigger audience than ANY of the panels during the day. MMF, always a pleasure to see you about. Sorry I missed saying bye, but again, I was really busy the last part of the day. Had a great time! Got pics of me with Smooth McGroove (!), Pro Jared, the Game Chasers, and AlphaOmegaSin, and got to see a lot of familiar faces from OVGE as well. Hope to do it again next year!
  14. I'm really not sure, Dan. I think he may have had a heart attack.
  15. Ok, I'm gonna be there again this year. I'll be honest. I wasn't sure my heart would really be into it, and was considering not having a table. But, I don't think that's what Brad would have wanted, so I'm going to be running yet another tourney. All Your Base will be sponsoring me once again. This year, it'll be the BRAD Game Beatdown. Yes, in honor of Brad Prillwitz, I'll be changing the name. It may or may not be a bad game that we play, but I guarantee it'll be one that you WILL remember. Remember, too, that Crossbow will be donating some of the proceeds to charity this year, and I may do a donation thing at my table as well, and donate it in Brad's name. I'll see if the Nintendo Okie guys can help with that, as I did a charity event with them last year that was really fun. So, I'll see you guys in September, then.
