    WTB Composite 2600

    I've sent you a PM!
  2. The Wii U is a wonderful, underappreciated system hampered by terrible marketing. I love using mine to play my extensive Wii library and a smattering of Wii U games.
  3. I'd like to finally purchase some 2600 homebrew carts from the AtariAge store to support this website and the 2600 community. What are some of your favorite(s), and why? I'm already drooling over Space Rocks, Halo 2600, and Medieval Mayhem. 😍😎 P.S. Are there any homebrew carts that won't display properly, for whatever reason, on an AV composite-modded 2600? Gonna be purchasing one very soon to use with my HDTV, since I don't have a CRT nor do I have a cheap means of getting one for my small apartment.
  4. Loving the new website. Is there an AtariAge discord server?

      I don't think AA has it's own Discord. But I know an AtariAge member runs this server here;

      I'm looking at integrating Discord directly into the forum...

      Hey Bix. Long time no see bro. What's new with you? Hows that CMVS Neo-Geo unit these days. 8^)

  5. I'll be buying a composite-modded console soon since all I have available to use for games is my HDTV, and I'd like to take advantage of the Harmony cart I used to love using a few years ago. Would also like to finally buy some homebrews, and it seems like a composite-modded system is my best way of being able to use all of this.

    Wonderful! I would be very happy with this. I will send you a PM later this afternoon after work.

    Holy cow, the prices they are going for on eBay are a bit too steep for my budget. I didn't realize that I'd likely be spending over $100. I may have to reconsider this entire thing haha. Thank you for the info.

    I'm afraid I'm not adept with this sort of thing and would prefer to buy a clean, pre-modded 2600 to use with my Harmony cart. Thanks for the link though!
  9. Hey all. Since all I have in my apartment is a 4k flat screen TV, I guess I need to purchase a composite-modded Atari 2600 if I want to get back into my 2600 with my Harmony cart. Thus, I'm interested in purchasing an Atari 2600 system that has been modded for composite output that will work beautifully on a modern TV. I'm not sure what the pricing for such an item would be; I'll trust that whoever has a system ready to go will offer it for a fair price here. Thanks!

    2600 with HDMI?

    If I were to purchase an AV-modded 2600 from the marketplace here, would there be any issues with colors, ability to play games, or lag with my 4k TV? Sorry if that's an unbelievably dumb question; I'd happily just grab a cheap CRT if any were near me and drop it in the corner of my apartment's living room. But all I have is my modern flatscreen.
  11. I don't have a CRT TV anymore, and the nearest one on craigslist is quite a ways away. I do have a 4k 40" Samsung I use with my Xbox One, Wii U, and Blu-ray player, however. I'd like to get back into my 2600 with my Harmony cart, but obviously it won't connect to HDMI. Is my best bet to get an AV-modded 2600 and plug it in through the AV ports? Or is there a better alternative. Or at this point, should I just use Stella on my Macbook Pro and purchase a controller adapter? Thanks!

    RetroN 77

    I just discovered that this console is a thing. I have a Harmony Encore loaded up with the entire 2600 library on it and would love to play 2600 games again on my HDTV. Will my Harmony Encore cart be compatible with the Retron 77? Thanks.
  13. Is there any conceivabl reason to have an HDMI modded 2600 to play on my HDTV? Or should I just go with an AV modded system? A CRT won't be an option in my new apartment I'm afraid.

      sometimes you just gotta do what you have the ability for- i have an AV-modded 2600 in our bedroom on a $99 el cheapo flat panel. :) I think you'd be good for retro goodness either AV or HDMI.

      If you don't mind cheap emulator stuff, get a Retron 77 with native HDMI.

      Funny, before I read any comments, I was thinking get a RetroN 77 and A/V modded 2600!
