  1. @wolfy62 How's the quality of the hat? We haven't done any hats or tote bags before, so I'm hoping they're decent.
  2. The same creative minds who are bringing you the Intellivision Virtual Expo 2020 have created an official t-shirt for the event: On the front you'll find a mash-up of classic Intellivision space games, and the back features the various countries around the world where Intellivision enthusiasts live. The shirts are digitally printed to order and ship direct from Spreadshirt.com. Right now there's a 15 percent off promo that ends October 11, so be sure to redeem that offer if you order this weekend. The next promo before the expo is October 21-22. Just to be clear, no one here gets any money from orders; they're sold at cost. Visit https://shop.spreadshirt.com/thompson to order an actual shirt for the virtual expo. Note that domestic shipping should take about 2-3 weeks. International shipping is more like 3-5, so keep that in mind if you want a shirt by November 21. No doubt someone out there will ask "What's an expo without a tote bag?" Anticipating that "need" I've also put an official tote in the shop to help attendees carry their virtual stuff around. Somebody suggested a baseball cap, so there's one of those available, too. That's it for now. We hope to see you on November 21.
  3. If you set the DIP switches on the Ultimate PC Interface for the type of controller you’re using (standard or Flashback) instead of Autosense, you won’t have to hold down a controller side button at startup.
  4. Maybe you could start a Kickstarter campaign to finance your copy. 😏
  5. I think I remember reading that you can play the game you bought on one console at a time. Same as if you'd bought one game cartridge BITD.
  6. @intvdave You're right. PayPal never finished their revamp and now it's a mess. It took me awhile, but here's how to "quickly" get to your shipping preferences. 1. Login to your PayPal account. 2. Point your cursor at the account name in the upper-right corner of the page and select "Account Settings." 3. On that page, scroll down the the bottom of the left-hand menu and select "Shipping." That'll take you to the Shipping Calculations page (still the old format) where you can edit your settings. But there's no link to take you back to the Account Settings or Home page; you'll just have to hit the Back button on the browser a bunch of times!
  7. Maybe you’d like to check with the seller before you start with the trash talk.
  8. @First Spear P.M. me if you still want these.
  9. I can help with some of this too, but there are more than 100 and counting. It would help to work from some kind of list. Are you looking for just "officially released" games, like the ones on Rev's list? Or are you hoping for literally everything that's been either sold or just demo-ed?
  10. The voice in Hover Bovver is excellent.
  11. That artwork looks great! Nice logo, too. I think I’d even make it a bit larger.
  12. The Intellivision versions of Jr. Pac-Man and Donkey Kong Junior certainly are excellent. I can understand why people who prefer multi-carts or emulation would want to be able to play them. But I admit I don't know the issues in releasing ROM versions.
  13. Wait, the first post says this set will come in a box. Maybe put a clear sleeve on the outside of the box that the overlays can stay in. Then nobody would have to open the box to use them!!
  14. Click the white text in the blue box at the top. Or the arrow in the top corner.
  15. Besides turning the music on and off, you can also change tracks by pressing 4 & 6 during the game. Check out the instructions to get the full experience.
  16. Very cool interview. Thanks for posting the link here!
  17. It’s a great game, but you really have to pay attention to the slope of the green when you’re aiming your putt.
  18. Those two transistors can also go bad, and it's a cheap & easy fix. Your board looks pretty baked in that area. Here's the thread I created to document what was wrong with my Intellivision (it turned out to be those two transistors): But you're right about that white component looking suspect. Good luck.
  19. Rev will update the list on the first page, but in the meantime here are the manuals for The Secret Government Waffle Project and Sea Venture. Sea Venture IR-0030.pdf Secret Government Waffle Project IR-0032.pdf
  20. Geez, don’t do that. Discuss ideas instead of text formatting. You’d be annoyed if someone jumped on your lack of complete sentences even though your meaning seemed clear.
  21. Very interesting! Thanks for doing all that work and making the video.
  22. Yes, the Intv II membrane is attached to the keypad, so it's a different animal from the original controllers. You do have to be careful when opening up the Intv II controllers, and part of the challenge is knowing where the plastic tabs are so you have less of a chance of breaking them. I couldn't find any good photos, so I took pictures when I opened my controllers up and posted them here. In fact, that whole thread might be helpful if you decide to attempt a repair. Good luck!
