  1. I’m interested in a kit as well when they become available!
  2. It’s smaller than expected but it’s sturdy as hell, controllers feel a little light but are pretty firm and don’t feel cheap, and I’m usually used to an Xbox elite controller with double aa’s in it which adds a lot of weight. if anything the people that don’t think the console will be worth while should look into the controllers they made when they come out.
  3. I received mine Thursday so they should be arriving soon here for most backers I would assume, my kid loves the new version of the classic joystick! Pretty smooth on paddle games as well.
  4. Shut down again? Man I didn’t even get to see it when you brought it back lol
  5. Hopefully I can get a color one in the future but this is the most satisfying way to play for sure!
  6. And yes they where both tested on another tv before hand. Thanks!
  7. Oh damn your right! I was wondering why the inner rings free spun even when not changing channels, I’ll try adjusting those while it’s on later tonight.
  8. Oh that’s fine I’m happy for any input! And thanks for the compliment I love being able to play Galaga at home! Sorry what sort of fine tuning knob do you mean? And I cannot pick up any channel or anything on channel 3 if that’s what you are talking about.
  9. Yes the channel is set to 3 as the tv is, just odd that I’m getting no picture. Hopefully it’s not something more serious...
  10. Hey Fellas, just bought an old tv and I am trying to hook up my Atari 2600 to it via a switch box but I’m only getting another type of static. When not connected the tv works fine and produces sound but I’m not able to get the Atari to show up on the tv. What I know: The 2600 works, and the switch box works. I’ve attached photos to see if I’ve done anything wrong. Setup: Tv model number: Tv with Atari off: Tv with Atari on:
  11. Thanks fellas! Odd color change, guess its just later production of its white?
  12. Congratulations Gray Defender! Might i ask what controller you where using?
  13. That’s an amazing score Steve! I’m still trying to reach enough for a patch...
