  4. Bienvenidos to the Lynx Community, Gustavo! You have a Lynx II. Good. And you have two Lynx cartridges. That's good, too; Kung Food is fun for what it is, but I'm sure you've already discovered that Chip's Challenge is one of the best carts for the system. So, having said all that, you are officially a Lynxter. I know that you will have many hours of fun with your Lynx as you build your collection. But never underestimate the power of the Lynx Community, both here on Atari Age and at AtariGamer.com; if you need game suggestions, technical help, or anything else, the Lynx Community is the best!
  5. It's a bit late for me to chime in, but I'll chime in anyway, ProAtarI: Welcome to the Lynx Community! You have a Lynx. Good. And you have at least one Lynx cartridge. That's good, too. That makes you a Lynxter. I know you will have many hours of fun with your Lynx as you build your collection. And never underestimate the power of the Lynx Community, both here on Atari Age and at www.atarigamer.com; if you need game suggestions, technical help, or anything else, the Lynx Community is the best!
  6. Please add me to the waiting list for a cased Lynx II cart. Thanks 🙂
  7. After a nine-month absence, The Atari Lynx HandyCast will return on December 7 with Episode 12: KLAX. Keep On Lynxing! Mark
  8. Yeah, I saved this eBay listing in my watch list just to see if anyone would pay $300 for it. Looks like someone did a couple of days ago.
  9. Congrats, Igor, on the one-year anniversary of linking AtariGamer articles on the AtariAge Lynx forums! 🙂
  10. Based solely on my experience in collecting the games, here's a general breakdown of how the different cart styles are distributed in the different cartons: Blue Lightning (PA2020): Large carton could include flat or ridged cart Small carton with gray vertical band could include flat, ridged or curved lip cart Small carton without gray vertical band will include only curved lip cart Electrocop (PA2021): Large carton could include flat or ridged cart Small carton with gray vertical band could include flat, ridged or curved lip cart Small carton without gray vertical band will include only curved lip cart Gates of Zendocon (PA2023): Large carton could include flat or ridged cart Small carton with gray vertical band could include flat, ridged or curved lip cart Small carton without gray vertical band will include only curved lip cart Gauntlet: The Third Encounter (PA2024): Small carton without gray vertical band (Japanese) will include only ridged cart Small carton without gray vertical band (all others) will include only curved lip cart California Games (PA2025😞 Pack-in baggy could include flat, ridged or curved lip cart Small carton without gray vertical band will include only curved lip cart Chips Challenge (PA2028😞 Small carton with gray vertical band could include flat, ridged or curved lip cart Small carton without gray vertical band will include only curved lip cart Just keep in mind that this breakdown is not definitive. One last tip: Sometimes it's difficult to determine whether a Blue Lightning, Electrocop, or Gates of Zendocon carton is the large-size or the small-size when looking at photos of them online, especially on eBay and especially when no other info about the carton size is given in the description. Simply count the rows of Lynx X's in the vertical gray band on the right of the carton: 10 and a half X's means it's a large carton, 7 and a half X's means it's a small carton. Hope this info helps, and happy collecting!
  11. Please count me on the waiting list for these boxes, Carl...they look fabulous! 🙂
  12. I'll pay the shipping and whatever you want for the item itself (within reason, of course)...I hope you find it 🙂
  13. I have the pictured cartridge holder, made specifically to hold 18 TI cartridges, with a slot at the top for manuals. I'm pretty sure that it dates from the early 1980s, but I picked this one up a few years ago on eBay for around $20. It's perfect, but I could really use a couple more; anyone know the manufacturer? I used to know who made them, but have forgotten it, and there is no name or manufacturer on mine. Knowing who made these BITD might help me find another one on eBay. Thanks.
  14. Hi. Many of you Lynxters might be wondering what's going on with the Atari Lynx HandyCast. You are right to wonder. Well, unfortunately, life has very much gotten in the way over the last few months, including being very, very busy at work, and also dealing with family issues (including the untimely passing of my younger brother earlier this month). I appreciate everyone's patience while I try to get back into the regular groove of releasing a new episode of the HandyCast every month, but at this point, I don't know when that will be. My hope is that I can get the partially finished KLAX episode out sometime in June, but that may not happen. I am still very committed to doing the podcast on a regular basis; I just need some time to sort through the obstacles that life has thrown at me, especially since my brother's passing. Please be patient, and I promise you all that I'll get back to it. And when I do, everyone here will be the first to know. Thanks.
