  1. Hey all, Trying to get CoolCV running on a RetrOrange PI setup. I copied the coolcv_pi executable into place, but when I run it from the command line I get this error: /opt/retropie/emulators/coolcv/coolcv_pi: error while loading shared libraries: libbcm_host.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory I've installed what I thought was the correct version of this file in /usr/lib, /usr/local/lib, and even in the same directory as coolcv itself, but it still complains about this lib being missing. Any suggestions?
  2. Thanks. This platform didn't offer coolcv as an option - I might try installing from outside the package system.
  3. Hey all, I've been trying to get SGM games to run under lr-blueMSX on a RetroPie system. Searching RetroPie forums shows conflicting info as to whether this can work or not. Some places seem to indicate it won't while others seem to show that it will. And of course, some of these posts are outdated. Does anyone have SGM games working in a RetroPie system under lr-blueMSX? Another data point: this would be running on a RetrOrange PI -- not sure if that makes a difference for this kind of thing. Just about every other RetroPie emulator I've installed works fine on it. Thanks, Rick
  4. Man, you aren't kidding!
  5. Payment incoming, I don't care about the number of the cart.
  6. I've got several extras. I'd be glad to send you one for the cost of shipping. PM me if that sounds good.
  7. We cross-posted replies... Yep, I think that's exactly what happened.
  8. Here's the cheat-sheet for making these cables that I put together some time ago: DB9 diagrams MALE PORT FEMALE PLUG _________ _________ ( 1 2 3 4 5 ) ( 5 4 3 2 1 ) \ 6 7 8 9 / \ 9 8 7 6 / \_____/ \_____/ Mapping for converter for plugging an Intellivision flashback controller into an Intellivision --------------------- Socket (M) end -> Plug (F) end 1 4 2 6 3 5 4 2 5 9 6 8 7 7 8 3 9 1 Your mapping doesn't look like a simple reversal, something else went wrong there. This is the mapping layout I use when I make the adapter cables. And yes, for anyone reading here who has requested a set from me, I am behind -- I got seriously sick in December and am still recovering. I'll be making adapters soon for the handful of orders that have been sent my way... Encouraging to see others in the community attempting to make these on their own, however! It's an "open source" kind of hardware thingy... [EDIT LATER] I just took another look at Paul's video and his naming of pin-to-pin is very different than the diagram I posted above. mr_me's posting of three pin mappings agrees with my list, and I know I've used this diagram and list to make these cables before. I think I see the mistake Paul was making in the video. He was treating both ends of the cable as if they were numbered identically -- using the Socket (M) side numbers for the pins on both sides. E.g. his first connection he describes as pin 1->2. The actual connection should be M pin 1 to F pin 4. He's basically saying "row 1, 1st column on the socket side to row 1, 2nd column on the plug side as you look at them end-on".
  9. Since Joe's circuit came up, did anyone see 8-bit guy's video where he attempted to use it AND also pull out the RF box and it wouldn't work? He ended up putting the RF box back into the circuit and things started working. For folks who know such things, what would need to be added to Joe's mod to be able to pull out the RF box?
  10. Geez, where is this alternate marketplace for purchasing "other" games?
  11. Hmmm... missed seeing this one last year. I'd love a version of Ghostbusters on the Inty!
  12. Gah! Same here! I'm not sure I understand the longer term plan for these carts. I get needing seed money to get everything necessary to do a batch. Are there plans to do a second run if there's interest?

  15. Gettin’ ready for extra life day... should be ready to start live streaming around 8:00am EDT.
  16. Hey there fellow MP1000-ers. I somehow ended up with two of these, one indicates "MP1000" on it and the other says "M1000". Is either one more desirable and/or more rare than the other?
  17. In this episode we discuss the Portland Retro Gaming Expo 2019, Paul interviews the former head of Intellivision game development and leader of The Blue Sky Rangers, Gabriel Baum. And we have a new Amico segment, Feedback, listener voicemails, News (kind of), George, and an extended outtakes! http://intellivisionaries.com/episode-37-amico-portland-and-baum-oh-my/ Plug it into your ear-holes!
  18. Big thanks to all the contributors so far! If you haven't contributed yet, what are you waiting for??? For Ferg to play Intellivision games on his stream??? I think NOT!!! 🤣
  19. Just found out about this cart, would definitely love to get one if possible.
  20. Thanks so much, Chris! And ummmmm... I'm not sure I'll be doing ALL the things you're asking, but I'll do some.
  21. It's that time of year again! Time to raise money for Children's Hospitals across the country. And time for me to do my yearly 25-hour gaming marathon as my part. Each year I play games for the full day as a bit of an endurance test, and folks donate money towards my campaign. All funds in my campaign go to the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. My game playing is live-streamed to youtube at my channel page: https://www.youtube.com/user/rickreynolds1969 The most important bit is the money raised for charity, of course. If you'd be so kind as to support my campaign this year, go to this link: https://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.participant&participantID=381795 You can also find those links and other pertinent info at the front page of my personal website: http://www.rickandviv.net. Please feel free to drop in suggestions for games you'd like to see me play. Intellivision games would be preferred, of course, but if you want to mention games on other systems (systems that I have access to, of course) then I'm happy to pull those into the mix also.
  22. Hey FroggoGamer, if you don’t want to bother with the wiring send me a DM and I’ll see if I can get a set made for you.
