  1. There's something to be said for this. It looks like you have unconsciously done the analysis in your head, you could get $1000+ if you liquidated all your jag stuff, but you have decided not to, because being able to play the Jag with the setup that you currently have, is worth more to you than what you would get if you liquidate it. Obviously if you have a collection where individual games would be several hundred bucks, you probably have a large amount of items that would be hard to replace in case you wanted to buy up the same items at a later date. Sometimes collections that have taken a long time to put together, or required more effort (money, luck, etc.) appear as more than just physical items, but reminders of interesting episodes of your life and what kind of person you are, reflective of your tastes, etc. All of your items could be sold, but only you could determine what it is worth to you, and it seems like the amount you think you could get for it now, is not worth it to sell. Personally, through experience I know that I tend to regret selling all items/liquidating a certain collection. I like re-evaluating what I own periodically, and maybe selling a few items, and then putting the money into other game items either at the time or to use as funds to justify a purchase at a later date.
  2. Could be a production defect, wrong label on the cart, don't think there is a huge market to make it particularly valuable though, just my two cents. Perhaps it could also be the case that the cartridge is the correct game, but is mechanically defective in some way, the system not recognizing it, and then booting up the Asteroids game built into the 7800's bios (Asteroids is built in on some systems).
  3. ^Maybe could do a palette swap with a handful of unique animations to increase the number of characters a la Scorpion/Sub Zero from the original Mortal Kombat games.
  4. My auction, no reserve: http://www.ebay.com/itm/191660978772?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  5. My auction, with no reserve. http://www.ebay.com/itm/-/191663734928?
  6. I beat Elansar recently (on cartridge) and have considered selling it on one day. I think I'll hang on to it for the moment, it's a really cool piece of the collection, a great game, and unusual to have this sort of game on a cartridge.
  7. I like Rayman, but it's always interesting to me that what is a standout quality game on one system that is loved by fans of that system (e.g.: Rayman on Jaguar, Tempest on Jaguar or Need for Speed 1 on 3do, or Test Drive Le Mans and Dead or Alive 2 on Dreamcast) is "just another average game" in the eyes of fanboys of systems that received way more software support. For instance, you don't see PS1 fans discussing Rayman 1 or Need for Speed 1 or the PS1 Tempest game as standout titles in the PS1's library or PS2 fans discussing TD Le Mans or DOA2 as awesome titles with awesome graphics and gameplay.
  8. Was looking at the box for Checkered Flag and noticed a detail for the first time that I never noticed before: The left side of the guy's face is blocky like a polygonal model, but the right side is smooth and not blocky. What I noticed before noticing this, was that the left eye pupil is a square and the right side is round. What's up with this! Is Atari trying to provide subtle commentary on something?? The relationship between man and machine?? Please post your theories below.
  9. Pretty cool, I'd be looking to clean the cabinets up and do a restoration/partial restoration rather than use it for parts. Alas I live 3000 miles away from these in an apartment.
  10. I would be really on this if I owned a ps2 or ps3. As it is, I only own a Jaguar and have a feeling the Jag game is Kasumi Ninja or Club Drive
  11. Raiden and Tempest 2000 made me interested. I would see the cover for Tempest 2000 and be like, wtf happens in this game! (As a kid I had no awareness of the prior games and ports in the series)
  12. Any change it could be the ribbon cable, or stuck pixels? What happens if you press them with a pencil eraser, could that massage nearby fluid into the right spots? Give it a try What have you got to lose
  13. Hi all, I picked up Missile Command a little while ago, but I'm not that into it so I'll pass it on. This is the cartridge only. Looking for a US buyer, $55 via paypal, which includes priority shipping anywhere in the USA in a rigid box with tracking number. Otherwise, I would be interested in trading or doing a partial trade for any of the following: -Sega genesis model 2 with 32X attachment -Blackthorne for 32X -Atari Karts for Jaguar -Rayman for Jaguar -Skyhammer for Jaguar -Crash n Burn longbox version for 3DO
  14. If this doesn't sell in a week or two, maybe I'll open up and try to clean the laser and/or adjust the pot with a multimeter to get better compatibility. Was kinda avoiding opening it up, I know from past experience that there are A LOT of pieces and ribbon cables you need to take apart in order to do anything with the cd drive's parts.
  15. I have a partially working 3do console for sale. Basically, the system reads commercial pressed discs pretty regularly (but not every time), but will not read burned CDr discs at all. Sometimes it will take longer than normal for the commercial game to actually start (e.g.: put the CD in the console and it takes 30 seconds instead of 10 seconds to boot up). Once the game manages to initially load, the game tend to play fine. I've played Road Rash, Need for Speed and Crash n Burn for a few hours without any skipping FMV or skipping music or adverse effects during gameplay. The system is otherwise pretty reliable in that it always boots up, the video and sound work fine and the controller always works. This sale is for the console only with no controller or games. The cd-tray front piece of plastic is missing on this console (I took it to put on a fully functional 3do which lacked one). The console case is relatively clean and this is the glossy plastic model. It could be a nice fixer-upper if you're interested in taking the system apart. I haven't bothered to try cleaning the lense yet. I would like to ask for $45 plus the cost of shipping (I'm based in the USA). This system could fit into a medium flat rate box (about $12) but there is not a lot of room for added padding to protect the system. For a larger box, the cost of shipping is probably closer to $20. I'm also interested in some items for a potential trade: -Sega genesis model 2 with 32X attachment -Blackthorne for 32X -Atari 7800 or 2600 jr console with AV mod Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for looking.
  16. Just started playing through. Very nice atmosphere, and the pre-rendered CG is really nicely done. This definitely gives a comparable feeling to myst. I just found my way into the laboratory and picked up the hammer and found the locked box, but am stuck on what to do next. Ah well, I'll figure it out eventually
  17. It looks like it might be a console in an imagic style box? I've never heard or seen of this before. Maybe its not an atari system, this scene is supposed to be taking place in a music store where the band is waiting for people to show up to sign autographs.
  18. Also chiming in here to say that I haven't had this problem.
  19. Looks like the recommendation is pretty clear! Thanks guys.
  20. I have hover strike on CD, but I don't have a memory track. Since mem tracks are pretty pricey, I'm thinking of getting Hover Strike on cartridge so I can actually play through the game/save my game. My only experience with the game is with the CD version, but I've heard they are pretty much the same game, except for a few minor enhancements (a handful of extra missions, FMV, CD music) and an improved framerate. The FMV and cd music and extra missions aren't a big deal for me, but is the cartridge version framerate really significantly worse? Is it unplayable? Would anyone advise picking up the cheap cartridge, or should I save my pennies for the memory track?
  21. I was in the northeast US, I always saw the Jag at Kay Bee toys in the local malls. In fact, they still had boxes of them and jag games, circa 1999! At one point, the store didn't appear to have any more. I came back a year or two later (around 1999) and they had a jag unit plugged in demoing games, and a big pile of jag consoles in their boxes lined up next to the demo system, I think for about $30 or $40 each. I should have stocked up then But instead probably bought something more pedestrian like coolboarders 3 instead. The local video rental stores also started renting jag and 3do games circa 1994/1995, and I noticed that instead of having its own section such as SNES or genesis had, my local video store combined Jag and 3do in one section (I guess due to a lack of games). At the time, seeing the new systems' games come in, I figured Jag would soon become as widespread as the SNES and Genesis. Guess not.
  22. Nah, the retrode lets you hook up a cartridge port via USB to your PC, so you can plug in your own cartridges and use those with PC based emulators rather than downloading someone else's copy of a game rom image off the internet. The retrode I think, only has cartridge slots for snes, genesis and n64, so I think these pictures reflect someone creating a homebrew modification for use with the retrode, to plug in lynx or GG games, and be able to download those rom images from the carts, for use with pc based emulators. I think he's cannibalizing a lynx and GG to get the cartridge ports, and that's reflected in the pics. Back when I was a kid, I always kind of thought that maybe a genesis game could work on a snes, or vice versa, if only the cartridges were the same. Seeing all the crazy different looking cartridges compatible with the atari 2600s that said things like "for use with the sears game system" certainly helped support this idea. Unfortunately, due to significant hardware differences, simply re-routing the cartridge contacts to approximate where the contacts would be for a different systems cartridge does not immediately let that different system play such a game. For the lynx and GG, a simple test could be done to prove this, by trying to load GG games in lynx pc based emulators
