    Everon Lynx?

    Nothing like attempting to resurrect an old thread. I missed out on nabbing one of these about 3-4 years ago. Now it has become quite the quest for me to find one. This photo from a previous Classic Gaming Expo shows they are out there (in some degree of abundance apparently).
  2. I thought I might post/ask here before creating a new thread (1st I must introduce it with - I'm not not smart to some small degree, but there's at least 1 reason I like these old games - around about the time of Sega Genesis and N64 things just got foggy for me and I could no longer keep up anymore) - Well, I waited patiently and finally received one of these (Many THANKS!!!) and now while I await my microSD for it (tho I guess I could use one of the ones from my LynxGD) - Would someone be so kind as to tell me a best place to get the Roms for this? (I hope it's not taboo to even ask) As an aside to confirm - dumb question I hope - when I do get my microSD - Do I assume correctly that I download the updated firmware straight to the microSD? (I seem to recall reading in here somewhere that someone of my acumen need not concern themselves with that little port on the side. So, I'm guessing/assuming there will be no direct download to the cart going on here). Any help/info. will be most appreciated. Thanks.
  3. Try breaking 1000 on U.F.O. for the O2 (Though sitting around waiting to be killed may not necessarily be considered "hard" by most). The disappointing thing with these screens for me (Regarding Blockbuster at least) is that I can no longer blame the foggy screen for my bad play.
  4. I'm (still) in for 1,2,3 - your call? (I wonder if there's gonna be a run on Parts Not Working Microvisions at Ebay for a while). I hope any install how to instructions/videos will be made with the Amateur in mind. I actually swapped a screen from a donor once, successfully, but when I did it I said I'll probably never be able to do that again. So far that's proven true, but let's hope that'll change and it turns out to be as easy as I hope. Now that the weak link seems to be about to be resolved, time to put my mind to/figuring out how to clean up some of my pots I guess. And, for some strange reason I have just now found myself wondering - Anyone got an extra AdventureVision console laying around that they're sick and tired of owning? I'll gladly contemplate driving up to 3 states in order to have it not be shaken and rattled in the USPS network. 🙂
  5. I'll gladly take one from both. (Just curious - Who has me watching their project item on Ebay?). Installing one on and selling me one from a previously fried screened one would be even better because (ok now I'm just being a wise guy) I only have working units.😜 By the way 5-11under, I thought I had a special place in my heart for the MV, but I think you may have me beat. Being selfish (and lazy) I'd vote for keeping both projects threading here (However - I totally appreciate and perhaps even support Shawn's counterposition if principle outweighs the spirit of collegial cooperation). I'm just so glad to hear some 1 is undertaking the project. But, 2? Ohh Boy! - Brings back memories of DoubleMint gum commercials.
  6. Hello- I'm an old man. Could someone tell me what account we're talking about? (I know I signed up for something, and I just can't remember what. But, something keeps telling me that I need to keep checking back here.) Could someone Login to my account, Click the "My Account" icon for me, Click "Orders" from the drop menu, Click on my "Order No.", Look under "Pre-order Position" to see how many are in front of me, then bump me to the front of the line because I complained enough so that I don't have to wait? ...but in all seriousness (though I don't feel too far from that 1st question anymore)-I'm assuming that's SainT's RetroHG page Account you are all talking about - I wonder if I had to create an account when I pre-ordered? I've never thought to check because I'm confident I am down there, but now I'm getting kind of curious. However, at my age, not all curiosity ends up getting investigated - lol. All signed up at AtariAge too (just in case ... I think). Your the best SainT! Ohh wait - out of politeness to some of you other great ones out there. You're one of the best SainT!!!

    Sure looks like it sold to me. Started 7:26 7/6 & Ended 7:26 7/13. Someone made a go at it at 6:52 and bid $1070 for it, which bumped the other guy(the winner), who had put his bid in earlier, to $1095. From 6:52 to 7:26 no one bid it any higher (lol). But, I didn't watch too closely though cause it got a little rich for me around about $350. So, I could be wrong I guess.
  8. Thanks! This is good info. I'm going get into this in the next week or so and will connect back to confirm resolution or otherwise. Thanks again.
  9. Hi all - I'm surprised there is not more info. out there on this cause there seems to be a substantial cult following and Ebay seems to command lofty prices for it. Anyway - I've got one here that I'm eager to get going with my young kid in the near future, and if I recall from my testing(sorry, right now I've got to repack everything between plays), everything seems to be functional except I have to wrestle with the controls to get some directional functions to activate (I believe if I push hard enough, then all controls function, but I'll check again soon- Also, the fire buttons both shoot if I recall). Just curious if there is a problem here anybody has experienced and/or a solution to? Do I just need to start using it to loosen these bad boys up? I may reach out to Rob Mitchell soon as suggested. But, since he last posted in 2006, I thought I'd see if he's interested first and/or anyone else has thoughts. Sort of at the beginning on this here. But, thought I'd see if anyone had thoughts or has had any experiences with the controls being spotty. Again, I sure hope it's just that it needs some good hard playing to get it back up to speed.
  10. Sorry Saint, I'm always late to the game around here (Though that is to be expected being age affected as I am and having a young kid focused on tearing my brains to pieces from 7AM-9PM every single day{especially here on lockdown as we are}) - Anyway, I unknowingly sent you a (nice) pm/email about about a month ago inquiring about wait list status. In case that noise took me out of the STRONG supporter column, please put me back in. I'm all caught up now. Got myself on the AA waitlist. Be sure to take and/or keep taking care of yourself. THANKS!!! 🙃

    Well, it is a VecFever topic. So it stands to mention $561 and counting(?). I'm tempted to drop a bid just to be a part of the insanity. But my better half would kill me if I accidentally won.
  12. Thanks. I didn't even think to suggest it might be his console. Though he seemed determined to return it, and God forbid I provoke a negative feedback by suggesting my as described item was as described. I'll have to give Centipede a try with it to see how I enjoy. I'll try to report back on it soon, but I'm confident it will be fine.
  13. I like the perspectives. I'm definitely gonna start shifting to Ebay as more of a sidelight and continue to look for alternatives to buy and sell any extras. And definitely make more of a focus on getting into the wild and finding my way to expos, etc. to see what others got going on.
  14. Well Keatah, I don't rule out that it may be realized in the end that Ebay is the best gig in town despite its problems. The buying end is not too bad {or even good I guess}, save for the high prices sometimes, and as long as I remain willing to fight the good fight against the occasional scammer or person just trying to unload their broken or near broken junk without saying as much in their listings. But, on the selling end, it just gets tiring {and I've had a few too close together recently} when I've just got to accept return(s) on items I know are perfectly functional and/or exactly as described, paying shipping both coming and going, because a buyer either didn't read the listing or didn't do their homework on the item they bought. The one that really got me was a buyer opened a return because something wasn't included that I specifically said wasn't included in the listing, and the Ebay rep basically said they take the buyers word if they say something is missing. Shipping was 1st class. So, it wasn't worth it to call another rep to fight harder or verify whether the rep was lying or not. The laugher of that one was that the same buyer {already blocked at this point} contacted me to ask if I wanted to strike a "package deal" on these very same items. As to the Adventure Vision, Zap, I bow to you. I believe your purchase may have been the one I was thinking of when I wrote this post. I'm truly happy for you, but I do believe it may have been the last one sold through this site, and I seem to recall it was on the long end of a few years ago at this point.
