  1. None of the screws in this kit fit the hole on the motherboard.
  2. I'm sure we all have stuff we would like to see made possible on the VCS. My wish would be to see it made possible to put emulators and ROMS directly onto the internal M2 SATA drive. Emulators would show up on the menu in the Atari interface, no OS like Windows needed. The interface of each emulator would feature menus like those found in Emulation Station. I'm not sure how difficult this would be, and I am in no way up to the challenge. Hopefully, this system will develop a big enough following for this sort of stuff to happen. What is on your wishlist for the new VCS?
  3. I ordered the following 32GB RAM kit (16GB x2) for $95.74 on Amazon Warehouse Deals. Do I have to do anything to the BIOS to get it running properly in the system? I have a VCS 800 on order and hope to have all of my upgrades ready to go when it gets here. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07BGLKD4M/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  4. Thank you for continuing to update the packs! Do you have a family-friendly version of the all-games.ini file for this pack?
  5. Thank you! I really appreciate this. My son is five and enjoys the Atari a lot now that it has so many games. He also dances to the new background music . I'm planning to give one to my nephews, as well.
  6. Thank you very much for this. I am using it along with v3 of the Sans Boom theme and love it. I have just one question. If I want to delete some roms, do I also need to edit the ini file? I am looking to make this kid friendly, and games like Beat 'Em and Eat 'Em have to go
  7. And here is the FBX Deluxe. The regular and deluxe versions use the same board and are identical to the point that a regular one can be crossflashed to the deluxe firmware.
  8. Sorry, I just now got back on here and saw your message. I will work on getting pics tonight and post them tonight or tomorrow.
  9. I just picked up a cheap FB9 Gold on eBay. I’m going to open it up and examine the boards to see if there are any components connected to that antenna that are missing on the FBX Deluxe’s board. I suppose before doing any of that, I will simply put batteries in the controllers and see if the FBX Deluxe picks them up. Who knows? Maybe it’s already built for them but shipped with wired ones to cut costs.
  10. Try a different cable. Mine was very touchy, but it worked with the third cable I tried.
  11. I was looking at a teardown of a FB9 Gold and noticed a structure labeled "antenna" on the mainboard that is identical to something I noticed on the FBX deluxe. It may be possible for someone with expertise beyond mine to enable bluetooth on this and get the wireless controllers from the FB9 Gold to work with the X. I am not sure if the X has the radio on the board (don't even know what to look for).
  12. Thank you. I like the cleaner look of the solid black cords, so that one looks nice.
  13. They seem to be very helpful to the community. May I ask one more question? What cable did you use to add the thumb drive? I have seen a few that have been confirmed to work, but they all add more ports than needed. I am looking for one that simply splits to one USB port and a pass-through for the power.
  14. That is great to know! Thank you for the reply. I was hesitant to update because I thought it might break the ability to hack it somehow. I much prefer using official firmware, so this is great. Edit: After downloading the update from ATGames, it appears they used the same method as the hack to enable the USB port. They even lifted the guy's pictures and used them in their firmware update guide!
