  1. The auction hammered at $735 ! - who knows could approached 1k if the wallet box and clear cover were included in the listing.🤑
  2. Winner! Before obtaining one a few years back, I searched over 2 decades for the wallet complete with the wallet box+clear cover in nice condition before I found one. The wallet itself is very hard to find, the box w/clear cover in anything more than cat toy condition might as well be hens tooth rare. Along the way I did acquire some in lesser condition. Difficult to tell from my not so good pics but the wallet is unused and condition is close to Mint. Paint has nice original shine/sheen to it and the zipper and zipper handle are shiny perfect. All imperfections appears to be part of the manufacturing, it's a faux leather wallet after all. The clear cover has no bends or dings, the printed letters are mint, corners are squared and sharp. Overall I'd rate the clear cover as NM/M. The white box is NM+.

Figured I'd throw the question out there as trivia challenge.
  4. Both systems had their strengths and weaknesses. Colecovision if the coding was there could produce excellent Arcade ports that in at least in one case, Ladybug, exceeded the arcade. My best memories reside with Colecovision playing Venture and especially Ladybug with my siblings - I still recall our amazement the when we first "discovered" the Vegetable Harvest.
  5. Asteroids - sucked at it then and after 20 years of playing via MAME on cabinet and on highly customized arcade panel I still suck at it.
  6. Wow only seeing this today - Kickman, aka Kick really brings back some memories and retro-memories for me. Thanks!
  7. Nice ,Thanks man! I believe I already have everything that is needed. Will give it a go soon.
  8. That would be incredible and perhaps bring tears to my eyes - seriously
  9. Hi - for SSH in Developer mode I am seeking a recommendation for working USB ethernet adapter. Thanks Thank you to all the folks that made Stella 6 possible on the unit! After seeing this thread today I ordered the R77

    MAME 0.206 Released!

    My Cab is still running .106 On my PC's I stopped updating at mameuifx .175, when mamesick was forced out by haters . Still I'm glad to see the MAME + MESS efforts continue. Back in the day MAME gave me great enjoyment. Being able to play in effect bit-perfect Phoenix at home in the late 1990's is something for which I'm an eternally grateful to Nicola and the MAME folks back then who made that possible.

    Stella 6.0 released

    Hi, I may be wrong but I do not think Stephen has any involvement with 2600.emu, which is still based on Stella 4.7.3 . I do like Robert's 2600.emu app but its updates now are usually a year or more apart so I'm not getting my hopes up. Serves me right for purchasing it :sigh

    Stella 6.0 released

    Hi Stephen, Prior to 6 , the trailing \ was not required for me. When I started 6 the first time all items required proper basedir did not show up. When I looked at the Stella system log I saw; "e:\emu\Atari\2600\Stellastella.ini" the \ was missing after 2600\Stella I then changed my basedir.txt from: e:\emu\Atari\2600\Stella to: e:\emu\Atari\2600\Stella\ then all looked good when Stella started. The Stella system log displayed e:\emu\Atari\2600\Stella\stella.ini As for commandline arg of -basedir as you mentioned - seems like a perfect idea to me!

    Stella 6.0 released

    Stephen, many thanks for your time and efforts with Stella and also a special thanks for continuing basedir.txt support. For those using basedir.txt with Windows ensure your entry has a trailing \
  14. Excellent products have been using them for several years now

    MAME 0.200 Released

    I've been a MAME user since Summer 1997. Congrats to them on their efforts and milestone even if I still use .106 in my cab.
  16. As long as you do a "get" you are OK in the US. Distribution [let say sharing] or intent to distribute is a no no. So if you grab via link click [wget] or usenet download there are no issues. Torrents would be a rather bad idea as inherent to them is sharing. So unlike what you parents taught you as a child sharing or intents thereof is bad
  17. A google search will easily find you the rom and I'm not talking about the fake "brick" one. IMHO the game is not worth the time I found the youtube video actually more satisfying.
  18. My usage of Stella on Linux 64-bit and Win7 64 usage are about equal. I chose Linux since it has a few less votes.
  19. The Color Edition is out since July. While it's a bit pricey it's also is a Hardcover and includes a new 2016 chapter which is rather long. My guess is the print run of this edition was tiny. Still it costs less than a pedestrian dinner at a mediocre restaurant [not fast food] for three. For those like me that are classic video game "historians" this is a must have on the shelf. Don't regret not getting it in the near future when the only copies available are from price gouging Amazon sellers. https://www.facebook.com/Phoenix-IV-The-History-of-the-Videogame-Industry-115031441861051/ https://www.amazon.com/Phoenix-IV-History-Videogame-Industry/dp/0964384809/ref=sr_1_1_twi_har_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1503842347&sr=8-1&keywords=phoenix+IV+history https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/phoenix-iv-leonard-herman/1125082055?ean=9780964384804 It's a very heavy book but can be had at Barnes&Noble and Amazon with free shipping. Leonard @Rolenta , if you see this post; I don't do kindle for many reasons but I will gladly pay for a copy in ePub, mobi or PDF format.

    Stella 5.0 released

    Been asleep the past 3 weeks not realizing this was out. Huge thanks for all your time and effort on Stella 5 !
  21. The 4th edition came out in Oct 2016. It's a massive 800 or so pages. IMHO the most encompassing word on Home Video Game History. Amazing that near double the history has occurred since I first read the 1997 edition back in the day. The 70's and 80's material has been rewritten [and corrected where needed] so it's all fresh and about as accurate as is possible given the scope. Folks this is history book in effect, while excellent and highly interesting it is not light fun reading. http://www.rolentapress.com/ http://www.rolentapress.com/Form/thank_you2.html and for those who would rather not support the author directly: https://www.amazon.com/Phoenix-IV-History-Videogame-Industry/dp/1539031292/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&qid=1485139916&sr=8-1&keywords=phoenix+herman&linkCode=ll1&tag=atariage&linkId=7243cc201d048800c12465fc5fdea21a
