  1. What is the B-Key? And here we have the number from a stock 16K Atari 400.
  2. I will have to look into the little brother mod. I was just happy as hell to find a Atari 400 w/ AV. So, what do you make of the serial cable. And I am trying to remember the poke command in basic to determine if my computer has over 16K.
  3. Come along as we explore a heavily modded Atari 400 found in a Retro Madness store in Arlington, Texas. First thing noticed is that it is AV modded and other strange cords.
  4. Ok good to know. What else is good common advice for the Arcadia? Or... also like to know, what is your favorite game?
  5. Well this looks like the closest thing to an "official" Arcadia 2001 thread so I'll post here... Picked up a Arcadia 2001 in late 2017, and got around to powering it up two days ago. It's a fun different system. It is like it has a little of all the popular systems. The cartridge shell of the Atari 2600, the disc controller of the Intellivision, fun gold and brown look. Cute. My starting question is the stick in the disc controller, seems they are kinda rare. What exactly breaks on those? I like using them but went ahead and unscrewed them. Usually screw in sticks snap at the base or the threading gets messed up. So what is the best way to preserve those?
  6. Yeh the Atari800 for Nuon you can paste in disk images into the binary and play various games, but at like 20% the speed. Electronic Arts turn based games like MULE (the original one demoed) and Return of Heracles are not "terrible" in those situations, but something is up with the fire button, like it is stuck? Luckily the source for this one is available too. Would be cool if at least the controls worked better, but again nice work on Nuance. Till now, at least with Mac and Wine, I was only able to get the screen to display a crashed opening screen, but was still helpful in testing the boot up on the Nuon disc images I created. Need to see if things work any better on the Mac running it with what you added.
  7. That is amazing news. Speaking of which, wish the prototype for Amazing would show up.
  8. Wow nice work toxie! :D (Wanna take a crack at the Atari 800 emulator for the Nuon next? Controls aren't quite working right or we would have a slow game of Return of Heracles going now).
  9. So I've had my Arcadia 2001 since 2017, but powered it up for the first time last night. A simplier system than expected, but I really enjoy Tanks A Lot. Would love to see more of the system's game library.
  10. Played with the Atari emulators on the Dreamcast. The Lynx and ST were sluggish but alright. (2600 and Atari computer was quite good). Lynx on the Mac has been great for years.
  11. 4 Jags (one white case) 2 JagCDs 2 Skunks 1 Flash Card (And will own a JagGD once those are sold... on the list at least).
  12. "I loved this fact and thought I would reprint it here. - Doctor Clu " ---------------------------- By Emma Reynolds Today is a very special occasion -- the date is a palindrome, meaning it is the same when read forwards and backwards. It is February 2, 2020, or 02/02/2020, in both the MM/DD/YYYY format and the DD/MM/YYYY format. At just after 2 a.m., it was 02:02:20 on 02/02/2020. This is the only time such a date will occur this century. The previous palindrome date came 909 years ago on 11/11/1111. The next will come in 101 years on 12/12/2121 and after that there will not be another until 03/03/3030. Solihull School Maths Department wrote on Twitter: "Today is a Palindrome Day in all date formats (UK, USA, ISO). It's also a palindrome day of the year (33) and there are a palindrome number of days left in the year (333). Quite a unique day!" The Royal Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas was advertising weddings on the "significant" date, pointing out that your two-year anniversary would fall on 2-2-22. "Two being the ultimate symbolic number representing you and your spouse to be." It's also Super Bowl Sunday and Groundhog Day. November 11, 2011 caused a major stir. When the clock struck 11:11:11 on 11/11/11. It was the only double-figure palindromic date and will not come round again for 100 years, in 2111. However, it is not as perfect as 02/02/2020, because using the full year, 2011, ruins the symmetry. Las Vegas chapels were bursting at the seams with couples wanting to tie the knot on 11/11/11, with "queen of nightlife" Tiffany Masters holding what she billed as the world's largest reception. Verizon Wireless launched its Droid Razr at 11:11 on 11/11/11 and there was even a movie "11-11-11! ," about an American author plagued by strange happenings and constant sightings of the number 11. Human brains are naturally inclined to look for patterns, and many consider such dates lucky. Daniel Hardt, president of Life Path Numerology Center in Indianapolis, called it a "powerful day."In September, there were a week of palindrome dates using the US format, if you removed the 20- in the year. There was 9-10-19, 9-11-19 and so on, through to 9/19/19. But of course, these only worked with the US format of MM/DD/YYY. There had been one of these every year since 2011, but that was the last of the century. A palindrome is any word, phrase or sequence of numbers that reads the same whether you read it forward or backward, such as "mom," "race car" or "tacocat." Author James Joyce invented "tattarrattat," which is supposed to be the sound of a knock on the door and the longest single-word palindrome in the Oxford English Dictionary. Famous palindromes include "rats live on no evil star," "never odd or even" and "a man, a plan, a canal, Panama." The phrase "A toyota's a toyota" can continue as a palindrome forever, as in "A toyota's a toyota's a toyota..." Palindrome comes from the Greek words "palin," which means "again, back" and "dromos," meaning "running," according to Dictionary.com. So palindrome is a word of phrase that runs back on itself. ------------------------------------ VISIT YOUR GROUP • Privacy • Unsubscribe • Terms of Use __,_._,___
  13. I've enjoyed the podcast on Theme Park. See what I can say about Super Burnout but if I don't get back around to it I will say this: This was the most played game of my friend's kids played on their Jaguar. And they got very good at it as I believe there got to a point where I never beat them again. Good controls, or at least fun to play and replay.
