  1. Mods: "NO POLITICS ON ATARIAGE!" (guy comes in with a confederate flag and "don't tread on me" snake avatar, two symbols of right wing aggression) "Uh, we didn't see nothin'."

      Welp, that escalated quickly.

      The guy did absolutely nothing to you. He hasn't said a cross word to anyone,yet you decided to try and stir something up because you have an issue with his avatar. Seems to me, this status update is breaking the rules, since it's basically a political "discussion".

      ^ The status updates aren't the right place for this in any case. Locking now.

  2. Gosh, these are good prices. I would have picked up your Dreamcast if I had known about it two months earlier. (I'm, uh, set on DC stuff now.)
  3. Oh no, the first hour of Kingdom Hearts II! "Blah blah blah, blah blah blah..."
  4. Microsoft did the same thing with Rare Replay. All of the NES games have had their references to Nintendo scrubbed out.
  5. I'm running Ubuntu on my desktop right now. I'm moving the IMG file over to the SD card but I'm not able to put it in the root folder... it simply will not allow me. For now I'm sticking it in with the ROMs; hopefully it can be moved to the correct place later.
  6. Lakka is working on an SD card. If I pull it out the system should boot with the original operating system. I could double check, though. Also, I don't really know how to "dd" anything. I presume that once I'm running Lakka on the Super Retro-Cade I can run Linux commands on it with a USB keyboard. I'm just not sure how to access the command line. There's a lot I don't really know, so yeah, I think I'm going to need more information. For instance, where would I put the IMG file on the SD card? Straight on the root? I can boot my PCs into Linux with a boot disc... I just burned a fresh copy of Ubuntu, so I should be set there.
  7. The download works now... I just need to figure out how to get that file installed on my Super Retro-Cade. Evidently I must have already installed Lakka on it, because that's what comes up when I boot it. Man, it's been so long since I used this crazy thing...
  8. The pinouts for the 2600 and Odyssey2 are different, but not complicated at all. Everything is pretty much straight wire to wire. If you were inclined to solder in joystick ports that would make your Odyssey2 compatible with 2600 joysticks, you could do that... and I'm sure you could make an Odyssey2 joystick compatible with the 2600 if you wanted. AtariAge user "Grips03" has pinouts for both systems if it helps... http://atariage.com/forums/topic/259124-using-atari-joysticks-on-the-odyssey-2/?p=3643678 Personally, I always liked the "looseness" of an Odyssey2 controller. Everything from that era felt so stiff and took so much force to actuate, but the Odyssey2 joystick is a rare exception to that rule. The square flush action button I didn't like so much, but eh, you can't have it all.
  9. I can't seem to download the image in that link. I get maybe through a gig, then the download stops, and my computer complains about a network error. Any ideas? Someone should move this to a location where it can be more easily downloaded.
  10. All I know is that I'm not paying sixty more dollars for a damn firmware update. Who do they think they are, Apple?
  11. It just seems kind of pointless. Once you finish a stage, you're taken to an "interlude," and you can select one of the game's four stages, even if you've already beaten them. Shouldn't the goal be finishing all four stages? What if you accidentally bounce the ball into a stage you've already visited? Shouldn't completed stages be grayed out, or not shown at all? Where's the sense of progression?
  12. April Fool's or not, I'd love to have a Dreamcast version of this. It'd give my GDEMU something to do.
  13. Crossing my fingers that this Sega Genesis Mini will be good. Not barely acceptable, but GOOD. https://kiblitzing.blogspot.com/2019/03/genesis-done-right.html
