  1. That's because you're trying to go to the encrypted form of his page which he signed with a self-signed cert. Which basically means you have to trust him since a trusted third party is NOT vouching for the authenticity of his certificate (as is the case for proper certificates). Other than being self-signed the cert looks ok to me, so I wouldn't have a concern manually accepting it. Or you can use the non-encrypted form (no "S" at the end of "http") of his price page here: http://www.packratvg.com/howtoorder.html
  2. I'm not sure I've ever played this and I didn't realize (or forgot) this was a two player game, I'll have to give it a try. After several decades I still enjoy beating my brother in Odyssey games.
  3. If you have someone to play with/against, I really like Monkeyshines. You can either play cooperatively or competitively. I hadn't played another game like it until Towerfall came along (IMHO Towerfall is the spiritual successor to Monkeyshines). If you have three people you can even get a third person in on the action by having them edit the screen with the keyboard. However running the keyboard isn't nearly as much fun as using one of the joysticks...
  4. I somehow missed that these were for sale and would also like to buy one.
  5. I hadn't heard of this swag before. Anyone know the back story on it? Maybe they were promoting "Casino Slot Machine"?
  6. I finally got to play UFO this last weekend. I agree, it is a really good/fun game. Too bad I didn't know about it when I was a kid. That starship is tough though! If you find a way to consistently beat the starship please let us know how you do it.
  7. Sounds very interesting. I really hope you get the resources you need to create your game. Have you asked at http://videopac.nl/forum/index.php ?
  8. In case anyone else is interested in a discussion about ROM purchases there are a few more comments on the cross-post I made at the Videopac forum here: http://videopac.nl/forum/index.php?topic=3183
  9. I've never seen Odyssey ROMs for sale, but I'd love to be able to purchase them this way. I just don't have the space or money to buy all the great homebrews that come out, but I'd like to play them all and support the programmers that create these games. I'm sure there's a concern about piracy and/or devaluation of the games, but maybe waiting to release the ROMS for a period of time (like 1 or 5 years) would help mitigate those fears?
  10. I don't remember seeing this ad, but I'd like to. I wonder if anyone has collected all of the O2 videos (which would mainly be ads)? I'd like to add this to my collect of Odyssey stuff.
  11. I was planning on making it to MGC for this first time this year and would've loved to pick one of these up. Unfortunately an ill-timed confirmation by my oldest daughter that weekend is keeping me from attending. I got my order placed on the website, but it looks like there's quite a waiting list.
  12. Thanks. Got an answer right away here: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/228141-lto-flash-intellivision-flash-cartridge-information/page-68?do=findComment&comment=4191925 tl;dr: this shouldn't be a problem with the LTO Flash (or Intellicart and CC3).
  13. Unfortunately life interfered with my best laid plans for some Odyssey gaming this Christmas (and I didn't get to play UFO). I'm not sure when I'm going to get to it now, but I will try it some day. Based on all the good reviews here I'm surprised I've overlooked this game for so long.
  14. Is the 3.3V/5V issue discussed here much of a concern for the LTO Flash?
