    Something for my Atari 7800 ProSystem. Could be a game for the 2600, or the 7800. Or maybe something for one of my other systems. Who knows?

  1. OK, so maybe I'm not the most tech savvy of gamers but I should be able to download and import ROMs for Atari 2600 games, especially as I have two emulators. To be clear I CAN download and import most commercial games from back-in-the-day, with a few exceptions. Mostly a handful of games from 20th Century-Fox and SEGA. But I've had ZERO success with homebrews and WIPs. Since a user at http://highscore.com/ submitted a score for Abyss of Chernobyl: 90 Seconds I've been wanting very much to play it. I have no idea if it's getting a physical release. I hope so. A factor to consider is that I have Doxillion Plus on my PC, which I use to archive all of my ROMs. I download the ROM that I want, and extract it with Doxillion Plus into the Folder of my choice. EMU7800 Version 2.2 (Core 1.4) Once downloaded I import the ROM file into EMU7800. This emulator will import most everything from back-in-the-day, but fails when it comes to some Fox and SEGA games. Stella Version 6.0 Has a ton of ROMs already, but whenever I try to download ANY homebrews, regardless of if they're a WIP or are finished games, Doxillion Plus pops up and I get an error message that reads (as an example) The file "Abyss0.19NTSC.bas.bin" cannot be loaded because its format is not supported in Doxillion Document Converter. What is the snag, and if I purchased a Harmony Cart what steps are involved in downloading ROMs into it? Abyss of Chenobyl is a large game. 64k I believe. Does the Harmony Cart have a size limit as far as individual games are concerned? I performed a search for the Harmony Cart at the AtariAge store but couldn't find it. Any help would be appreciated.
  2. Thanks for the detailed information. I greatly appreciate. Now all I need is $750.
  3. I have some basic questions. If the Super Game Module was never produced, why are they being sold on sites such as eBay and Amazon. At $750 no less! https://www.amazon.com/ColecoVision-Super-Module-Ultimate-Wafer-Drive/dp/B07CVDTT8F And why are there homebrews for the ColecoVision that require the SGM? http://www.gooddealgames.com/inventory/Colecovision.html
  4. Thanks for the info Al. That's a worry off my mind.
  5. I've got a ColecoVision coming my way, so I've been wanting to order come homebrews for this system. However it doesn't seem to be possible any longer at the AtariAge Store. When I click on a title I can see the info for it, including cost and so forth, but there's no option to add these games to my Shopping Cart. Furthermore, while there is a link to click to add each of these games in my Wishlist, when I click on it nothing happens. What's going on? Sorry if I posted this in the wrong place, but this was the closest appropriate place that I could find.
  6. I've been busying ordering games for my Atari platforms, although I'll be adding another retro console to my collection soon, so I'll soon begin purchasing games for it. More on that further down. All listed software (Games) are for the 2600. Recently Arrived, And Shown On My Youtube Channel: Software @eBay Beany Bopper Mega Force Revenge of the Beefsteak Tomatoes Turmoil Recently Arrived, But Not Yet Shown On My Youtube channel: Hardware Atari 5200 Trak-Ball Controller. Boxed. Refurbished by @AwesomeOgre. I traded my spare Boxed Commodore 64 for it. Software @AtariAge Aardvark (CIB) Software @eBay Alligator People (Prototype Reproduction). I already own the cart offered by @AtariAge, however this one uses the same artwork as found on the cover of a DVD release of The Alligator People. Doesn't appear to be from Hozer, but then I've never dealt with them so don't know what to look for. Spacemaster X-7 Ordered, But Hasn't Arrived Yet (Or Even Shipped Yet In Some Cases): Hardware ColecoVision console, being refurbished and modded for Composite Outputs by @AwesomeOgre Software @AtariAge Roach In Space, A (CIB) Seaweed Assault (CIB) Strat-O-Gems Toyshop Trouble Software @eBay Amidar (CIB) Astroblast M.A.D. N.E.R.D.S. (Homebrew; CIB) Star Wars: The Empire Strike Back I had never found a copy of N.E.R.D.S. before, but did tonight while trying to hunt down a decent, and affordable, cart of H.E.R.O. Video by CheapTech https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzuOVLH2NBo I've been wanting to order some ColecoVision games from @AtariAge for obvious reasons. However that option doesn't seem to be currently available. I can't even add them to my AtariAge Wishlist. Strange. Feel free to post your comments below. 😀
  7. Al,

     

    I tried ordering some ColecoVision games but the Add To Cart option does not appear for any of the CV titles. I can't even add them to my Wishlist. Is AtariAge experiencing some sort of difficulty with these titles? I'm having a ColecoVision console refurbished and modded, and it would be nice to have some homebrews to play on it.

  8. That's approx. $250 U.S. Dollars. Two sets of wico controllers make it a bit tempting, but I currently don't have that kind of money laying around.
  9. The Jaguar Conversion Controller doesn't appear to be out of stock. In fact the site indicates that there are 3 In Stock and that it can be back-ordered. Or did I miss something?
  10. I've really been wanting an Atari 5200, but what has held me back are the controllers with their infamous poor build quality. I've done some searching online and found a couple of alternatives. Forgive me if their old news, but I think that it'd be great if these were offered for sell through the AtariAge Store. Not as kits but fully built and ready to use. Alternative 1 RetroRGB Controller It looks nice, but what's the build quality like? It appears that this controller can be purchased either in kit form or ready to use. Alternative 2 Atari Jaguar to 5200 Conversion Controller Looks comfy. I've always liked the Jaguar Controller, and $89.99 seems like a reasonable price. Which of these Controllers is best? Can't these controllers be offered via the AtariAge Store?
  11. As you may remember, I decided some time ago that the easiest way to build my Atari 2600 Game collection is to do it one publisher at a time. Publishers completed so far: MenAVision 1 game. Ultra Rare. So what I own is a Reproduction purchased through the AtariAge Store Mythicon 3 games. All suck! Next on the agenda is 20th Century-Fox ("Games of the Century"). Below is a list of all of the Fox/Sirius games. Those in Bold are already part of my collection. Those that are Underlined have been purchased on eBay, and have shipped. The rest of the titles I still need. There are seven Prototypes, two of which I own Reproductions of. Alien Alligator People (Prototype) Bank Heist Beany Hopper (Ordered; Shipped) Crash Dive Crypts of Chaos Deadly Duck Earth Dies Screaming Entity, The (Prototype) Fantastic Voyage Fast Eddie Flash Gordon Lasercade (Prototype) M*A*S*H (x2) Mega Force (Ordered; Shipped) Meltdown (Prototype) Pick-Up (Prototype) Planet pf the Apes (Prototype) Porky's Revenge of the Beefsteak Tomatoes (Ordered; Shopped) Save the Whales (Prototype) Spacemaster X-7 Turmoil (Ordered/Shipped) Worm War I Do you have any suggestions on which game(s) I should purchase next? How about Publishers? I'm trying to decide between Activision, Imagic, Coleco, Sega, M Network (Mattel), or Coleco as being the next publisher I concentrate on next.
  12. Tonight I experimented with recording game play footage. Some games seemed to work fine, while some, like Mouse Trap, recorded with some flicker. This is in spite of the fact that there was no flicker evident while I played. I've tagged Bob DeCrescenzo because I mentioned him in the video. Emulator: EMU7800 ver. 2.2 (Core 1.4) Capture Software: OBS Studio (Windows 10; 64 bit version) Controller: Logitech Xbox 360 I mention in the video how easy it is to import ROMs into this emulator, however I've never been able to get homebrews to import into it. I've tried the ones posted in the AtariAge Forums, such as The End 2600, but once downloaded they will not import. So, the only homebrews present are the ones that this version came pre-loaded with. Only one homebrew for the 2600, Oystron. However, many homebrews for the 7800 are included. The only one with issues is FailSafe, which doesn't work with my controller. Fortunately I own this game physically. Now I just need the box. All of the homebrews that came pre-loaded in ver. 2.2 of EMU7800 are available to purchase physical copies of from the AtariAge Store, with the exception of those by Mark Ball, and Santa Simon. I'd love to purchase physical copies of these unavailable 7800 titles, but if they're not available I'm out of luck I guess. I Can Now Record Game Play Footage Youtube Video
