  1. no I didn't snag any ... I don't have any Best-Gold either. I'm not in any rush to get 'em but they look pretty impressive
  2. I'd spring for a pair ... if that helps gauge interest :)
  3. he is asking if it's in a common Atari shell ... a real one would be in a light blue "tee-handled" shell https://atariage.com/software_page.php?SoftwareLabelID=972

    Lost Game?

    well, there's somebodys next homebrew title :)
  5. Now that the Holidays are almost all behind us, post your progress on repairs. do you get anything on the screen ?
  6. the c-380 uses the same exact power supply as the Atari 2600 http://www.best-electronics-ca.com/power guide.htm
  7. this manual http://www.robotsandcomputers.com/computers/manuals/atari2600_fsm.pdf the silkscreen on page 2-6 lists that part as "L102" described on page 8-2 as an "inductor 15 uH" https://www.mouser.com/Passive-Components/Inductors-Chokes-Coils/Fixed-Inductors/_/N-wpcz?P=1z0wrhuZ1z0wqaw I'm guessing that is a "light sixer" console you have ? why do you think it may be that part ?
  8. Combat, I'd say is my favorite game. It is hard at times to get a 2'nd player so I bring my Atari to family gatherings & try to get a game in or two. The "short play time" affords the opportunity to try and play all 27 levels in one-go. (28 times actually; to swap controllers for the "bomber vs 3 bi-planes") this also affords the opportunity to really experience the hand cramping we all remember wrenching on the joysticks :P In the Atari "Log book"(s) http://www.atarimania.com/catalog-atari-atari-usa-_153_2.html & http://www.atarimania.com/catalog-atari-atari-usa-co18262-rev-1_95_2.html there IS a challenge for a single player to shoot as many enemy drone planes in the time allowed. game 15, difficulty on "b" a great review for a great game and I lernt something new about "Kee games" \o/
  9. I don't necessarily think the size of the paddles/drivers are the issue. I would think in the heat of the gameplay the tightening of the grip on the paddles is where the fatigue of extended play comes in. you could try building a base to hold the controller, full sized steering wheels would be cool as well.
  10. yup "driving controllers" https://atariage.com/controller_page.php?SystemID=2600&ControllerID=3 it's a great 2 player game, especially "tag" & "Crash n' Score" IMO
  11. you remember BEFORE the internet ...... was a way to reward high score achievements https://www.atariage.com/2600/archives/activision_patches.html
  12. I think a Crane named "David" is rather clever. Perhaps a raven may be more historically accurate. Named as a gerneric "bird" should be ok as to let the imagination of individual game-player decide.
