  1. This is my favorite feature on AA. It's nice just to say hi once In a while. I think I've left the house maybe 20 times in the last 2 years. Working from home, health is poor, doing my best to stay active. Trying to play guitar again, haven't touched it in years. So I guess that's my status for now. ✌️

      @xucaen hey Xucaen. Hope you're feeling better bro. If you need anything, feel free to let us know and will do our best to give a helping hand. :)

      Can relate on the guitar part.   Didn't have an urge for a long time, but want to give it another go.

  2. Is there such a thing as a multi game mame board? Something that I can build a cabinet around and simply plug into a monitor and controllers? I googled but I'm unsure of what I'm finding...

    1. wongojack


      I think most people looking for that are probably going to use a Raspberry Pi.  It can be just the board running the software, so you don't need an expensive case etc.  Just gotta keep the chips cool (just like any board).


      I've never done it because I have so many old computers that can run MAME that I just haven't bothered with RPi.

    2. Keatah


      I know what you mean. But the answer is really any PC motherboard or R-Pi. I seem to recall there are Jamma adapters for those too of course.

  3. I feel like long statuses should have a feature to expand so we can read the entire message.🤔

    1. BydoEmpire


      Just in case you didn't happen to know, clicking the time will do that, although it moves out of the forum view to the poster's page. Definitely agree it would be nice to be able to expand the actual status the way you can expand replies.

  4. Food for thought: which retro console would make the best multi game arcade cabinet?

      I've often thought a PS2 would work pretty well, as it would have access to all those arcade comps (mostly on PS1) and all the PS1/PS2 games.  But also a modded XBOX from what I've been told.

    3. Keatah


      XBOX or PC stuffed with emulators.

      Y'know, I imagine I am completely wrong, and certainly not beefing on anyone else for their own ideals, but for as old as some of the early disc based systems are, I still don't quite put them in "retro" yet.

      (Remember when Guns and Roses showed up on classic rock stations...?)


      Teasing, but I do mostly play mid 80's cart based systems-

      I have a(n old)"supercomputer", last thing I was playing before I got trapped in high scoring was Formula One 2015, I think, it was super nice.

      Well, I "regressed" for several years, some sporadic PS2 and all(Activision anthology doesn't quite count as "modern..."), but about a year or so ago I got an OG X-Box, never had one before, and played MotoGP2 for a good while.

      To me-the modern Formula one was certainly better, sharper, etc, but it still amazed me, when I looked at how "old" the MotoGP2 for Xbox was, at how good it looked.


      I'm not the Retro Police, lol, I swear, that's just how I imagine retro, in my kinda uneducated, closed minded world.

      I think the reality is, I'm just old...


  5. My boss joked in a team meeting about getting rid of a developer to pay for client's server upgrades. He didn't laugh. I got a bad feeling about 2022. 😬

      @Frozone212: are you sure about that?  I know two people in the Redmond, WA area who would disagree with you based on their experience.

    3. Frozone212


      When is it a good idea to let greed take over for the brain?

    4. ls650


      If he didn't laugh, maybe it wasn't a joke.

      Time to update your resume and start looking around for something new.

  6. I slept about 14 hours first time in years now everything is clogged up backed up stuffed up am I still dreaming? Oh, Good morning. 

  7. Does anyone know where I can find a USPS price chart for first class shipping? I need it for games I plan to post here later. \\//

  8. Is there any way to make retroarch see my analog gamepad as a paddle controller? 

    1. Rick Dangerous

      Rick Dangerous

      These are questions for Google. lol

    2. xucaen


      I googled. 

  9. Can someone help me configure retroarch? It scanned and found my ST games but after that I don't see them.

  10. Second vaccination today. 😎👍

      Oh good, now you don't have to wear a mask anymore...right?  Right?

    3. xucaen


      CDC recommends wearing a mask in public crowded places, I'll probably wear one whenever i have to interact with someone i don't know. When visiting family who have all been vaccinated we won't need masks. ✌️ 

    4. xucaen


      Cpu, my phone has a big crack across the back 😂 i expect it to fail any day now.

  11. I've been self quarantined since last march, and now I'm coming down with a cold. o_O.

    1. GoldLeader


      That sucks!   On the plus side, someone I work with got a cold and it only lasted a day!  So it might be a real lightweight cold.   Fluids, vitamins, and sleep might do the trick and knock it out fast!

      I've been taking Zinc and Quercetin the past few months in the hopes that they might help me avoid random sicknesses. Haven't gotten sick so far, but it might be a coincidence. (I also take D3, C, and other stuff.)

  12. There are so many games on the Atari Age store I would love to buy. I wish there was an option for digital download only. I really don't have the room right now.

    1. GoldLeader


      So what you're saying is you don't really have the ROM right now.

    2. GoldLeader



  13. Requesting a refund on my Amico founder's edition. I don't need this kind of drama in my life.

      Stop buying pre-orders and you won't have this issue.

    3. robdaemon


      the fact that they delayed the product to get it right is "drama in your life"?


      You clearly don't work in any part of product development. Delays happen.

    4. Keatah


      I never buy on pre-order. I prefer the spontaneity like we had back in the 70's and 80's. Hey let's go get THIS! Yup! So much more fun.


  14. Ebay really screwed me. They didn't charge enough for shipping and then Paypal wouldn't use my checking account to pay the high shipping costs. (flat rate raised to $21! o_O)

    1. jd_1138


      You can't rely on what ebay thinks the s/h will be. You have to put the item(s) in whatever container you want to ship in, then measure the exact weight and dimensions and put that into the shipping area on the listing form then the buyer will have to pay for the full price.  You can buy neat little digital scales for like $10 off ebay. I use mine for baking too (homemade pizza, yum).  Or is it a case of ebay's USPS flat rate prices are not up to date?  I hardly ever ship flat rate. I usually just use a custom size box that's small as possible.

    2. GoldLeader


      So...You had a Better experience than I when trying to use ebay's shipping business!  (Heh),...Yeah I tried that mess once...I ended up having to ship it on my money anyway and waited 6 months for a Post Office refund because of ebay's "Convenient shipping labels" (Which weren't right)...Never again, but shipping is always the X Factor unfortunately.  Someday I may try 1138's idea, but it always seems to backfire...

    3. masschamber


      I've used a scale for years, any time ebay auto fills in information it is always garbage


  15. Wondering how to put the status updates at the top of the screen on my mobile browser. 🤔

  16. Atari Flashback Portable for sale in Auction central forum. 

  17. This weekend I watched Reigo King of the Sea Monsters and Raiga God of the Monsters on DvD. If you like daikaiju movies they were pretty good. The second one was hilarious. 

  18. MST3K live stream marathon right now. https://www.twitch.tv/mst3k

  19. Happy Birthday March 27 Babies! :D 

  20. Be safe and well. ✌️

      I lost $18,000 but it will come back.

    3. dj_convoy


      I mean, if it helps, we basically all did. 



    4. xucaen


      Yup about 15 years from retirement. Been partying into it since early 20s and now i have about 50k left.

  22. Italy is doing very badly right now. :(

    1. GoldLeader


      Plus, the experts say the U. S. is 10-15 days behind Italy so...

    2. xucaen


      yup, I'm not leaving the house other than to go to the post office, maybe the grocery store.. and the liquor store.I might need to go to the sub shop.. oh and Uber eats delivers so there's that.. hmm.. shit I am not safe. lolcry

  23. I've been playing Xenoblade Chronicles X, I'm really enjoying it. I've also been playing Sam & Max Season One, hilarious!

      The Knack has a new hit:

      "My Corona!"


    3. jd_1138


      I got a Corona fever, and the only prescription is more cowbell.

    4. Random Terrain

      Random Terrain

      There are people who supposedly think that beer causes the virus, just because of the name. If that's true, they should probably be the first to go.

  25. Don't ever let them tell you removing those 2 little screws on the back of a Wii U gamepad is easy.o_O
