  1. That's a beautiful box... I have the art of the Atari 2600 that I made for someone who requested it. This one I printed myself and assembled guerilla style but I have no pics, but I'll take some and post it here.
  2. That's a good point you raise, sir. I guess, putting the copyrights aspect aside, it isn't a cheap project. I myself tried to make just one for myself and it turned out really expensive, almost to the point that It would be better getting a real one... There are two people I know of in Brazil that sells them, one makes with cardboard but the majority lack in quality of the art material and there's another one that makes them in mdf and they are really beautiful, but very expensive. Would you mind sharing pics of that Atari 2600 repro box? I'm really curious now.
  3. It's coming along, it's coming along.... I had to stop the project due to other projects, but I may be finishing it real soon...
  4. Hello pucpuc!!! Those are getting great!!! How can I help you? Please tell me what you need and I can see what I can do for you.
  5. Sure!! And if you need anything artwise, please let me know!! And let me say that's a great idea, I think you are on to something here. Whenever you feel like making a Zelda one for some brazilian friend, remember who your brazilian friends are!!!
  6. Was that image good enough? If not, let me know and I'll see what I can do...

  8. There's a link there for a brazilian auction site, like ebay, for domestic purchases. For international purchases you can let him know through his email and make a paypal transfer directly to him. I'll get back to you with his paypal email. And if you dont want to send him an email, i can let him now myself.
  9. Hello everybody, I am writing on behalf of a friend, Luciano who is releasing a brand new game called TOWER TURTLES.

Here's a link for the ad he made: Pricing (dollars): 50,00 (game with case, index card and manual) + 25,00 shipping 45,00 (no case, but with index card and manual) + 25,00 shipping Available in Brazilian Odyssey format and US Odyssey2 He will ship Worldwide For more information, questions, ordering or anything else, please contact him (Luciano) at [email protected] or PM me here, or access his website at www.retronics.com.br So now for some screenshots and covers
  10. So, the next natural step for me would be to try and make a 3d printed cartridge. So I did, even with my lack of experience with 3d softwares, it wasn't so hard. The only thing I couldn't figure out was how to make round edges, but even with sharp edges it turned out nice. But when I tested it, the part where the bolts are attached aren't close enough, so the card came a little loose, so it didn't work, but it's just a minor adjustment. Here are the pics:
  11. Yes, definitely. But I think it's too expensive, and my intentions are solely for fun and personal use. I just show you guys the results because you always give great and respectable feedback (good or bad) and if someone gets interested on some of it, I can make it available. But If I stumble to a different option or find better prices, I'll share with the community.
  12. The cover part would be a nightmare as well, because of small, thin pieces I think. But there's always someone willing to all kind of stuff. i know I would if I had the time, material and the dexterity for it.
  13. This is the cheapest I got from China. The most expensive is the black part and the cheaper, the translucid acrylic.
  14. I did some research on prices from Chine, but not using the 3d printed but with the actual case. I don't remember the prices exactly, but I can search my emails and get back. it was expensive, I remember that. For the file, I made it from scratch on a 3d design software using the measurements from the original. It wasn't so hard since it's almost sharp edges, only a few round ones. I am far from super good at this, but with some researching and studying, I got it right. Here are the pics you requested. I didn't do any post adjustments, this is directly from the bed.
  15. Yes, we could make a mold out of it, but not me, I've tried a few times with catastrophic results, I think the rubber we have available in Brazil isn't good enough for that end (but then again it could be just me doing everything wrong). I think it's hard and well structured enough for that matter, if that's what you meant. And thanks for the compliment,it is a really fun project!!!
  16. Hello again from Brazil!!! So I started a personal project again, now for printing the cases just like the brazilian or european ones to keep my homebrews that didn't come with cases, since i find it hard to find empty cases to buy. I printed two prototypes and the first one had some errors, but the second one is really, really close to what I am looking for. The idea is to keep the cartridge inside, with the place for the index card and the manual inside, and for the outer part, since I can't print anything translucid enough, I thought about printing the cover of the manual and glueing (?) it on the front of the box, "simulating" the cover. I have some pictures now, but still need to print the cover (and maybe a side label so I can identify it by looking at the shelf, like our friend from the Videopac.nl (and AA as well) grips03 suggested. Once I have it done, I'll post more pics. The third and last (fingers crossed) prototype I'll print with black filament directly and adjust the minor tweaks that are necessary. Thanks again for the attention. All the best to all Leonardo
  17. Sorry to hear that!!! If this second try fail as well, let me take control of it.
  18. If you can't find any place or nothing else works, I can try to send you myself the sheet. Just let me know.
  19. Thanks!!! It was sure a nice project, I guess i could try some other brazilian places, I'll let you guys know if I find anything... And if any of you are interested on the ones I got, i think I have 4 or 5 left, just PM me and we'll see if I can ship it to you (no charge), and then you can give me some feedback on the quality...
  20. Hello 1980gamer!!! Nice to hear from you!! We actually went ahead with the project and made a few prototypes (we = Me and Hankster (Humblejack)) I made 10 packs from a company in Brazil (The cards weren't so bad, but the packing could be much, much better. The fine print was almost illegible and some details were lost, since it's so small), but the price was good, would be something like 15 dollars final price) and 5 from MakePlayingCards (which turned out really, really beautiful all the way. But the cost alone for making them was something like 30 dollars plus shipping, so it became something really undoable because of the costs. but Hnak took some to the Portland Retro Gaming Conference and tested the waters and people really liked them but when he commented on the price, not one said it was ok...) But I think he may have one or two left if you would like to check on them. I do have 7 or 8 of the brazilian ones if you are interested. I can send them to you as a gift. Just let me know. All the best Leonardo PS The pics are from the playing cards we had made. The darker, thineer one is from the Brazilian company and the larger, lgihter one from MakePlayingCards. Hope you can see the differences by the pictures.
  21. You said it! And very well put! I guess I'll just continue doing this stuff and face whatever may come. After all, it's just for fun and the love of the games, and that's why almost most of us do it and joined this or whatever else community (helping each other, I mean). Thanks for reading and commenting. I promised not to bore you guys again by letting off more steam... And the third side of the box is coming in a couple of days..
