  1. Secured one from my local Best Buy.Picking it up this weekend! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Really cool and a similar setup for sure. Ya I ended up doing a pretty good amount of work to get the tron stick to fit correctly. Next on my list is some sort of better restrictor gate for that stick. The arcade version had a 4 way gate with soft corners so you could hit the diagonals if you wanted to, but wouldn't have control issues on the Light Cycles round. Even an octagonal gate might do the trick, but the GRS stick doesn't come with one of those. Here's more info on the Tron arcade restrictor if you're interested: http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,71229.msg734487.html?PHPSESSID=jj3vdnlinc2grr0hf6ukg9lvr1#new
  3. You guys are awesome. Thanks for the suggestions!
  4. I’ve been a Mac guy for the last 25 years or so, but the content available on Steam and GoG is really starting to appeal to me. I’m thinking about snagging a used or refurb PC that is capable of playing stuff from the 1990’s through 2010. Mostly classic PC stuff and the occasional PS3 era game. Thoughts on minimum system requirements? I feel like it should be pretty cheap to get in to. I already have a mouse, keyboard, and monitor. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. I’m actually enjoying the missions quite a bit. Visuals are good and the arcade dogfighting has just enough of the old 90’s sim stuff to keep me happy. I’m only about 2 hours in though so maybe it’s too early to really tell? I haven’t noticed anything overtly political yet. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. Any chance this will ever be available for this of us that use emulation? Happy to pay for the rom. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Please get well soon. Sending positive thoughts your way. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. It's this one (only they used to offer it with a trackball as well. (Looks like the one with a trackball one now comes pre-loaded with a Raspberry Pi): https://www.microcenter.com/product/623127/atari-dual-fight-stick-usb
  9. Thought long and hard about an X-Arcade Tankstick...but this was half the price on Amazon so I took a chance... After modding with a Tron stick, a Sanwa stick, and a TurboTwist...I’m in RetroPie heaven. This thing is built like a tank, and with the mods I can play pretty much anything with near arcade perfect controls. Next is to build myself a similar setup with a steering wheel.

  10. We’ve had some losses in the Atari community in the last last few years...but this one rocks me to the core. Just heard a great interview with Curt on Into the Vertical Blank podcast. What a tremendous loss. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. Yep there’s a topic over there already about it. Looks like it has yet to be updated to be compatible. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. I've been using coolcv for a while on my retropie box and its just fantastic! Over the weekend i upgraded to a Pi4 and I don't see it available for install. I'm assuming that its not compatible yet with the Pi4?
  13. Updated...only the FB2 hasn't been spoken for. If a couple of pending deals fall through i'll update the thread. When you receive your items please let me know. I want to make sure everyone is happy with their purchase before a transfer the $$$ from my Paypal acct to my bank account
  14. All items that have been paid for have shipped as of this morning! Just a few items left. It's all going to Goodwill on Saturday!!!!
