  1. How do you search newspaper archives?
  2. RG 350 is really good at what you want. I actually have an extra one if you are interested. lloyd
  3. As much as the Ataribox has been delayed has that 7800 XM thing ever been released?
  4. If I am not mistaken Atari is now suing over the design of the joystick.
  5. Okay... I have the same X-Arcade that you do. Keep in mind that the X-Arcade is basically a "keyboard" and the trackball is a "mouse". If you plug the X-arcade into a PC and open something like Word and press buttons it will put letters etc in WORD. I looked at the specs for what you bought and as usual on almost all this Chinese junk I am scratching my head..... There is this image - https://gyazo.com/1ee709919f5ada3dc35301966933c01d It looks like you can connect external USB joysticks. I am not sure if they just act as player 3-4. But this is not even a picture of what you bought. (Even though it is in the same listing.) Here is what I would do - #1 See if a PS2 controller works. If a PS2 controller works then go buy this - https://shop.xgaming.com/collections/adapters/products/x-arcade-playstation-2-adapter If a PS2 controller doesn't work then I am not sure what controllers will work (if any). There are adapters for quite a few controllers. With all that said.... Launchbox/Bigbox setup on an external HD is really the way to go. I just grabbed a Western digital WD-BLACK 5tb HD for like $100 and will be setting up a sweet retro system that I can plug into any computer and play greats games with amazing emulation. BigBox will cost you $60 (not needed, but worth every damn penny.). So for about $160 you can turn any PC into a retro gaming system that you can use on any PC and take on the go. lloyd
  6. I sooo want the first one. I would love to know who designed the art work for Sears. Some of the picture labels are amazing. Truly amazing.
  7. Let me ask my initial question in a different way. How rare is the first version of the catalog. Damn. Some nice art work in that one. https://gyazo.com/956309f0609abc58b7bd94cc633fd0e7
  8. It appears that someone got one in a CIB Pong Sports. Though if it was not sealed it could have been as a hand out. I never knew these existed until I got one in an auction. I actually like the design of the catalog. They really try and make the games look way more exciting than they really are. Just my 2c. lloyd
  9. These are rarer that I thought. I actually got one in a lot I recently bought. It's is actually a nice looking catalog. I love the way they made StellarTrack look better than it actually is. lloyd
  10. Haven't seen one pop up on Ebay for a long time. Just wondering how rare these are and how were they distributed? lcc
  11. Here - https://www.ebay.com/itm/Radio-Shach-Color-Computer-/223489251872?hash=item3408ff5a20%3Ag%3AyiMAAOSwBz1cu3my&nma=true&si=DOJaFprZTNCMJt%252FIqg5mE%252BfWq0I%253D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 These things can get pricey.
  12. I would actually pay $25 for an Air Raid Repo just to have a physical cart to play.
  13. Who makes these? https://www.ebay.com/itm/air-raid-atari-2600-game-very-good-condition-/143252275039?hash=item215a803f5f%3Ag%3AookAAOSwpRJc21lk&nma=true&si=DOJaFprZTNCMJt%252FIqg5mE%252BfWq0I%253D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557
  14. I really need to find out what makes it complete. Seems like all I am missing is a boxed Combat.
  15. You may not think so but I do. Was delivered today - https://www.ebay.com/itm/Atari-2600-System-Game-Cartidges-Memorabilia/183804648026?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
  16. Going to need more than luck. Just saying....
  17. Superman is out of the question. (Unless luck comes my way.) How many known copies of this exist? lcc
