    KidVid Cassette??

    i went back to the thrift store this afternoon and was able to find another kidvid cassette. probably will. i want to wait and see if the last cassette, cartridge, and kidvid player turn up. most likely they will not, and in that case i would have no use for just these two cassettes, and will get rid of them. btw, what are they worth?

    KidVid Cassette??

    great! i thought it might be a 'story book' cassette. i paid 50 cents. i'll have to back and see if i can find the others. i was on lunch break and didn't have much time.
  7. I found this at the thrift today. Is it a KidVid cassette? The songs on the cassette repeat several times, occasionaly seperated by a 'beep'.

  13. not sure if this will help, but here is an article i scanned from an old commodore magazine about repairing atari joysticks. http://members.cox.net/plas1/articles/joys...tickrepair1.jpg http://members.cox.net/plas1/articles/joys...tickrepair2.jpg paul
  14. mine was freeway. the neighbors had kaboom which i played more of.
  15. not sure if this is what you mean...
  16. nice work! gets fast real quick, which is okay, because the first few stages of kaboom were too slow for me anyway. i tried playing with the scanlines option and had no slowdown at all. (119 fps on amd xp 2400, ati 9200 video) anymore clones planned?
  17. according to this page: http://www.geocities.com/TimesSquare/Lair/...9260/davie.html Andrew Davie had plans to program the game. SS: Any plans to finish your "Sokoban" game? Any other possible projects or ideas? AD: I don't plan to finish the Sokoban at this stage. That was a test bed, which didn't make it past the initial R&D stage. I will definitely do another 2600 game, though. I have a couple of projects in mind
