    My background is in art and filmmaking. I'm interested in game design. I love console gaming and was really excited to discover the homebrew scene a few years ago, via the Vectrex.

    I try not to be too much of a collector but have to admit that I am one. .. Mainly focused on joysticks and controllers at this point.

  2. I'm not sure but I would guess so. He didn't say anything about changing them. It was the common Atari Super Pong console used.
  3. A few years ago I convinced an Atariage member to convert a Pong console to be 2600 paddles. Works okay and is a cool novelty. Still plays the pong games too.
  4. Sale pending ****** Game Boy is in average condition. Everdrive is in good condition. Game Boy has red backlight, unprofessionally installed by me, years ago. Installation could easily be modified with a different backlight. There are a couple lines that come and go in the screen. Sometimes there are no missing lines. Everdrive battery save works and still has game saves from years ago. All around playable Game Boy has gotten a lot of use from me in recent days. Everdrive includes micro SD card as shown. Everdrive has a crack in the case I just noticed in the pictures and verified on the item, (front side, bottom right).

    What is currently available to play MAME on Vectrex?
  6. I have two consoles I'm selling, preferably as bundles/lots. - 500GB PS3 with Ico/Shadow of the Colossus and two Sony Dualshock 3 controllers, all good condition - Wii emulation box with full original functionality and Game Cube compatibility, with extras and a few valuable Game Cube items, priority Zelda. Wii is a great alternative way to play Atari 2600 games, besides convenient, compact and wireless input, motion controls are shockingly effective for Night Driver and some other Paddle games. Nunchucks are not an insignificant alternative to 2600 joystick options either. The Wii classic pad is also an awesome and fairly standard option for NES/SNES/Gameboy and even N64, which operates wirelessly through a Wii remote. Not generally interested in trades unless you happen to have an Olympus Air lens camera or similar small exotic or quality video capable and conventional tripod mountable camera. Items are crosslisted on other sites at different prices. Looking for reasonable offers.
  7. Yes it is quite the saga of the joystick kit who now finally will spread her wings.
  8. I still have mine I never built and would pass along at this point. I haven't followed closely but I think it is the second version.
  9. I tried two different high quality 2600 joysticks on the flashback 9 hdmi and they did not work, appear to be different pinouts.
  10. I was just playing a Flashback 9 that I bought for a friend's family. You can navigate the menus with either joystick plugged into either port, (I know because the 5 year old I was playing with was perpetually fighting me to choose games). In the menu screen the joystick and fire button is enough to select and start a game and within each game you have normal atari 2600 functions with the joystick/fire button/mode,reset and difficulty switches. In the absence of the extra buttons you have to turn the console of and on to change games. I didn't use the rewind or freeze state functions except once by accident but I don't see how you could use them without the special joystick buttons. My bigger concern, and the reason I'm posting here is that in my experience with the Flashback 9, original 2600 controllers DO NOT WORK. I tested two high quality joysticks and a pair of paddles. Both provided some input, but not correctly or reliably. They appeared to me to be wired incorrectly and not compatible. When I read reviews of the flashback 9 I saw something about paddle controllers being planned but never released. So I think the paddle games are basically unplayable. The two paddle games that I tried seemed like they may have been patched for the included joysticks because left/right and fire seemed to correspond with paddle spinning and button, which is not the case on real 2600 pinouts. But they were still not really playable that way, with much too abrupt responses to the joystick. My real paddles gave nonsensical input.
