  1. I gave away an Atari 2600 with 25 games plus a sealed copy of SpiceWare's Mideveil Mayhem, two joysticks, two sets of paddles and two driving controllers. I want children to learn the origins of gaming and how great these old games are. I done this once before at a different school and it was well received but this time I would like to take it further. I was in hopes I could get a group of people interested in making a game that uses different controllers threw out a full adventure. Something like Sword Quest where it is an adventure that leads to rooms and each room has a mini game that uses different controllers from joystick to paddle and even the driving controller. This would give an opportunity for children to have a chance at each controller type with out having to swap games. I also think this would be a great way to fulfill the dreams people have of a finished complete version of Sword Quest Water world. Sword quest series had amazing ambition the comic book with hidden clues for in game happenings is a great way for children to learn in the classroom and respect playing a game with a lack of instructions. Modern games are so linear and tell you every moment what to do and where to go. Sword Quest was always about your own exploration. As good as adventure was Sword Quest had far more ambition even though most of its mini games were lack luster some of them had HUGE potential and other were SPOT ON! In modern times everything about the game could be SPOT ON! I doubt there will be any takers as people who make games have their own idea but I would love to see a group of people band together and make this happen. It would fill the missing gap of driving controllers having only 1 game. It would fill the gap of Sword quest having its fall out and uncompleted waterworld. It would fill the gap for children to understand there is more to gaming then just graphics and I have shown many younger people these old games many like them but many more claim the graphics are too hard to look at. I really want to change this outlook as well as bring critical thinking back into the school environment rather then instant gratification. My goal would be to bring FUN & EDUCATION together. Which gives a idea of the foundation of map reading because a game like this could use a map but not in game but rather printed. Sorry I have no programming skills but I got the ideas.
  2. I saw several quad games listed what is quad racing? Anything like Indi 500?
  3. Would this work with the Gemini y adapters?
  4. Thanks. I should have realized that. I have not got one if these and as far as I seen I would not like it anyway.
  5. This would bring rise to greate new homebrew games for sure.
  6. This is my kind of Awesomeness. I love the Intelivision and it has Lots more potential especially with a device like this.
  7. The title says it all and I have a Console and 25 games 2 sets of paddles and 2 joysticks. I also am giving them a sealed copy of SpiceWare's Mideveil Mayhem.

  8. I would like paddles that use the same hardware as the hand held pong console with 2 paddles attached by @ games. Those machines have the BEST paddles while the paddles included in the @ games atari consoles are too stiff which causes torque to build up when using it preventing the user from stopping on a dime, the torque built up pushes your hand further then where intended. Not sure how one product can be totally different from another product by the same company while being consistent about it and botch the ines that are able to be used with our actuel original hardware. Old paddles get old. We need new well working hardware.
  9. Thank you for your help and happy new year.
  10. Well thanks you turns out I can ot read. I been looking for that for a while now.
  11. Well now I feel like a fool. I just found the menu up top that shows topics. From selecting one it shows what is new under topics. The pinned content on those is not pages long, infact under general there is only one pinned item. I was overlooking how the forum is done due to missing the (TPOICS) link. Even though this is my fault I wonder how many people overlook this. I am used to new content being in the main forum page instead of navigating to a specific topic. I have been looking for the topic list for a long time and some how, now that I asked about this I stumble upon it as it has been staring me in the face the whole time. With my new found understanding I do not think it needs fixing. I wonder if there might be a way to add a link newest threads across all topics though for an easy way ti discover new stuff with out having to look threw the topics.
  12. I can not say enough good things about this site or its community as it has the BEST and most welcoming rescourse filled forum out there on the internet. I haved used the site for mamy years but now I am running into a problem with the setup. Pinned content The forum used to be based on new threads in the front with later pages down the line. Pinned content is always nice but there is so much of it, pages and pages long to the point the new content is getting barried. I know the search function works well but I have to have something in mind to specifically look up when all I am looking for is what is new. I see the options to sort in the forums of whats new but that is based on posts not threads. I question I am I missing this option or is this a thing everyone is dealing with meaning as soon as I post this new thread it will get lost emeditly barried under all the pinned content?
  13. Reading this thread about the Mega SG and I saw you ported MSX games to coleco. Looking for what you created and I searched your profile and saw your website. The site appears to be either incomplete or broken. Can you direct me to the correct info Also what is the Opcode coleco upgrade for $90 that interests me but there is no info on it.
  14. Jentzsch I am really glad to read that especially from you and what you did for me with your Sadoom! Joke evolving into Sadoom!+ I am certainly thankful. Would love to work together on other projects. I been trying to see if there is a way to make indie 500 4 player but I bet that is a LONG shot. If I knew how to code I would present some ideas here but I know more about the super Nintendo and I am self tought to edit things hackers will not touch. We look up to eachother in the Super Mario Kart work shop. Several people are relying on me to do the things they can not. So when it comes to the Atari I think it is unfair I can not offer anything outside of my thought process. I need to learn.
