  1. I'm actually surprised out how much homebrew attention my beloved O2 gets, but there haven't been a lot of homebrew arcade ports. The only one I can think of off the top of my head that might qualify is Puzzle Piece Panic (Tetris). If you want more info on programming the O2 I'd check out the Videopac forums here: http://videopac.nl/forum/index.php
  2. I had the same experience, paid with check and my LTO Flash already arrived yesterday! It will probably take me longer to find where I stored my Intv than it did to get the LTO Flash. Thanks @intvnut
  3. Assuming you've got the files on the zip card ok you should be able to just plug it in, turn on your O2 and it loads the game selection menu. So far I've only used the ROMs that are included in its zip file, I haven't tried loading my own ROMs yet. It's not clear to me if I need to edit the ini file manually to make new ROMs playable or if that will get built automatically.
  4. Another O2 controller fan here. If you don't like a joystick with a large throw you're not going to like it, but I love them. And they're durable too. I've been using my original O2 for close to 40 years and its joysticks still work fine. I've also bought a few other O2 systems over the years and all of their joysticks work great. Compare this to at least a 50% failure rate of my C64 joysticks. IMHO the biggest downside to the O2 joysticks is that (most) are hardwired. Thank goodness they never break.
  5. Just got my cart today, it works great. I'm using it with an old 4 GB uSD card that came installed in a NN3DS system.
  6. Don't know how I missed this on videopac.nl. I'll take one (no microSD card needed). How do I pay?
  7. Holy electrons batman! There's a wealth of info in this post, thanks for sharing. For a single power supply the Newark price comes out to $32 (shipped in the US with tax). One more thing to note, I normally use the "Deflection (Dark)" theme (which you can select from the bottom left "Theme" drop down on any AtariAge page). With the dark theme this thread is unreadable. I haven't had this problem with any other posts.
  8. https://www.the-nextlevel.com/odyssey2/collect/hardware/peripherals/ has some info on the "C7420 Home Computer Module". I'm not sure if it'd work with an Odyssey though.
  9. Finally got a chance to play this today. I like the graphics, even the ships had an animation in the middle. Since the score stops at 10 it looks like this one really only works as a two player game.
  10. I have always assumed the "Expanded Memory" games were referring to ROM, not RAM. Can anyone confirm if this is correct?
  11. I'd also love to get one of the double secret unspecial editions of the LTO Flash!
  12. Thanks for the info. Maybe I'll have to restart my Swedish language lessons so I can just read it myself.
  13. Sounds like an interesting book, but I can't read Swedish. Do Swedish books usually get translated into English?
