  1. The pen is often refered to as mighter than the sword, in this case the keyboard. My exceptional typing ability will crush your 7 times as much number into oblivion. By the way, yes, I also like my avatar. Gee, all this lurking is making me thirsty... [ 10-19-2001: Message edited by: dollopx ]
  2. No longer will I feel small and stupid for living with this 50 something number. I am a lurker, I would be seriously pissed off (excuse the language) if my number got bumped just cause I was busy. Ha Ha Ha, I got a higher number!!!!
  3. I just wanted to say what a great addition. I had always wondered if 2600 games had any real cheats and hidden "eggs", and this section, along with the digitalpress' section is just GREAT!!! ....i notice that my No Escape cheat is not listed, it's in the digitalpress' egg section.....

    New Rank!

    Ha, you think your inadequate!!! Firstly, I got only the one star, and secondly I made a REALLY stupid post the other night. Oh god, was that stupid. "Where's the search option" God I feel like a moron!!
  5. Well, first I'd like to apologize for any miss - typing of anything contained herein. It'ts late and i'm drunk, but here goes 1. I think, you know how sme some sites have that JavaScript that says how many people are online at the site at one time, well how bout using that script in the forums... You know, like 5 people are currently browsing the forums etc... 2. An option to search the forums for topics and replies etc, I wouldn't want to see such a thing on every page, but more on a link etc I'm sure I had more ideas to swank up the message board, but I just can't think of them right now....
  6. Yep, found the search. Thanks. I was just thinking what would be good additions to the boards.
  7. Firstly, I can't believe that in your journeys across the net, you haven't found this rom!!! I got the Pitfall 2 rom packed in a zip file containing every rom starting with P. Some of the less "quality" sites will pack their Atari 2600 roms this way. Most of the good sites like EdgeEmu will have the rom available as a separte downlod. Problem with most rom sites is those nastly little pop - ups!!! Lastly, and I mean this is the nicest possible way, doesn't AtariAge (you are here) have this rom, I haven't checked, but I'm sure they must Hope this helps...

    Your Back!!!!

    I'd also like to offer my congrats for returning. I thought that my net access had been disabled or something or that I had been blocked from the site. It was a tough day there. Did anyone else notice that if you put your mouse over the AtariAge logo next to the news item explaining about the downtime, the tooltip text says: Do'h Anyway...
  9. Hmmm, interesting theory. Thanks for helping.
  10. Just a short, non - spaming question about the Atari.Com url. There was a thread runing last week pointing out that Atari is now owned by Infogrames, and that Infogrames intends to rename itself Atari, if so then why does Hasboro still own / operate (poorly) the Atari.Com url?
  11. It'd like to make the point that I think that message board rankings could give some people an inflated ego. While it is cool and really makes the board interesting, rankings create a "class system" amongst users. And no, I ain't bithcing cause I have a low post count, thus low stars (I only post when I think I have a contribution to make), I'm just pointing out that before we were all equal (except for post count and member number), but now we are ranked. I think I'm getting confused, but I'm sure you can understand what I'm trying to say...
  12. Can I be a lord? I could be "dollopx - Atari Lord of Ignorance"
  13. I understand how you guys feel, but I'm only a bad VB programmer, so screwing with an emulator written in assembly is a little out of league. z26 runs at about 90% the speed of a 2600, while you can notice a slowdown, its not enough to either make the game agonizing to play nor easier. And anyway, like wntermute said, you could just solder a (quoting)potentiometer to the 2600 board to slow it down.

    Well, I live in en area of "growth and prosperity" according the government types, however... There is at least 4 goodwill stores (there called "op-shops = opportunity shops" here) that I know of in the area, and a pretty large flea martked every sunday (or is it sat??). I have seen some damn fine atari stuff at the flea market, but, as usual, I can't afford to get of bed in the morning let alone but stuff. Ah well...
  15. Aahhh... I was under the impression that Hasbro had rolled Atari into it's "interactive" division, and had come quite confused of late with the reference to infogrames. Thanks for clearing all this up. *smacks self in forehead*
  16. Not bad. I had a few laughs. I agree, somepeople have too much time on their hands (like me, now)
  17. Ok, I'm on it. Don't expect the scans insanely soon though. Also, we wrote on the manual in a couple of places (supposed order of the games on the cart). Just thought you needed to know...
  18. IMHO Homestead provide reasonably good freespace services (including image links). This is where I host my site. My website And this is where I host the pictures on use on boards etc. (btw... thanks for hosting my avatar!!!) The are down at the moment (you can expect that from anyone), but I think they are usually pretty reliable. Also, I think that the 5odd MB you get for an ICQ site also lets you link to pics but I'm not sure...
  19. Ummm, I don't know if this means me... It was an atlantis 1 score, and yes you can use it (twingalaxies is shiting me...) I would like to apologize here and now if this post wasn't intended for me, I did post an atlantis high score, so i think I am justified in replying.
  20. I used to think that way about emulation. I used to think, hey, cool, I can get free s*it. Nowdays, after I have realized that this is wrong, I have moved more into the appreciation of classic games. My rom collection no longer grows in leaps and bounds but rather, with what I can't find, or have always wanted. It's more that fact that I can't afford to buy anything (I'm only a poor, starving student), and emulation is a way to sort of capture what I missed as a child, and now as a broke, destiture student.
  21. Nope, i was wrong. Ishido was in the other lynx
  22. Let me see... I believe it was shortly after my younger brother scored a gameboy emulator and some roms. I went looking for other emulators and roms for the gameboy, only to discover that the good ol' atari was emulated. I downloaded a26 and a couple dozen roms, only to discover that a26 was a piece of shit (excuse the language but it is!!!). I was a little taken back at this point, and thought that emulation was only in its infant stages, only to discover z26. z26 runs like a charm on my 486 (about 90%) and the games play just like I remember them. Today, I have around 500 roms, and ver 1.43 of z26. Thanks guys, without you, what would we do.
  23. I keep my system boxed when not in use. Anyway, the control pads are f*cked anyway, so it would be unplayable. I can tell you that I'm pretty sure that Road Blasters is in my Lynx. I love this game. I think that Warbirds is in the other Lynx (dodgy buttons).
