  1. Also was able to acquire a ColecoVision with Donkey Kong and Smurfs, but it's missing the video cable.

  2. Got a 7800, now i just need some home-brews for it. Also the paddle doesn't seem to work for Circus Atari.

      (Correction: any games, not just home-brews)

  3. Is there such a thing as a Multi-Coaxl adapter that allows multiple inputs with one output?

    1. SSG


      you could make one with a selector switch



    2. SSG


      get perf board. Wire all the grounds to the output coax port

      and then all the positives to a selector switch and solder it to the board

      I am sadly not a techy person, so I wouldn't be able to make a multi-in adapter from scratch.

  4. The Atari 2600 that I got works perfectly; tested it with Combat. Now to get it into place and buy more games.

  5. I recently got a C64 that my father found; it's missing some cables though.

      Be sure to get C64 saver if you're using original power supply or make your own 5v DC + 9v AC adapter.

      If you're going to order cables, skip the RF cable and go straight for a composite video cable instead. Disk drive cables are straight 6-pin DIN, and not terribly hard to find.

      What kind of monitor you hooking it up to? Need to know that before you buy a cable, there's a few kinds.

  6. Still anticipating a release of Bentley Bear's Crystal Quest on the 7800 someday.

      Ditto. The thing about it being a hobby is you go on the schedule of the hobbyists who do it when they have time and energy to move forward.

      And if it ever does, just put on some music or do it on the go. Pokémon can be tiring if you try to catch and raise every monster.

      To me, grinding is work, not fun.

    4. Ransom


      Depends on who I'm grinding with, really.


  9. Trying to get Salary Man Champ emulated in MAME with 3 players; it only does two ATM.

      If you are going to be anywhere near Brewster you should stop by Curt Vendel's Legacy Engineering.

  12. When I start playing Pac-Man, you know stuff just got real.

      Sounds like a challenge? Let me crack my knuckles and grab a Mountain Dew and channel my inner Billy Mitchell.

      The thin veil of electronic communication frees people to be more human and less kind.

    2. OBO

  16. Are there anyone here that'd liek to take a recommendation for a homebrew 2600 game?

  17. I always take good care of my electronics.

  18. If Champ Pac-Em or Champ Ms. Pac Em was ported to the 7800, I will rejoice.
