  1. What pins can I output to in the joystic port

    1. CPUWIZ

      CPUWIZ

      2600 / 7800, all but the 5V and GND lines can be in or out.

    2. gauauu

      Is there a document somewhere that describes using INPT0-INPT5 as outputs? I've used SWACNT to set SWCHA as output, but I couldn't find a way to set INPT0-5 as output. Thanks!

      Was wandering the same thing.

  2. Are the joystick ports on the 2600 read only or can you output data through them?

      Sweet! I'm just wandering because I'm thinking of custom rumble controlers

      You mean wondering, right? :P

  3. I searched for an hour to figure out how to scroll the playfield I the bB DPC+ kernel and found nothing helpful. Any tips/ideas?

    1. Trip2018

      Trip2018

      Sorry I should've been more specific. I'mTrying to get horizontal scrolling

    2. Random Terrain

      Random Terrain

      RevEng added coarse vertical scrolling to the DPC+ kernel back when he had the time to work on batari Basic. There is no horizontal DPC+ scrolling at this time. Someone might come along and start working on batari Basic again and give us all kinds of goodies. Until then, we're lucky that we have vertical scrolling.

    3. Trip2018

      Trip2018

      I guess I'll stick to the standard kernel.

      It depends on the 5th grader.

      oyamafamily

      A composite modded NTSC 7800 ProSystem, which I won in 2016.

      The Easter Bunny.

    2. cybercylon

      cybercylon

      Tacos, then some play time on the switch. Burritos, then some time with the PS4. Top off the evening with quesadillas and the PC.

    3. MrMaddog

      MrMaddog

      Atari games on the Switch...why not both?

  8. If atari still sold the 2600 and made games.

    1. RockyRaccoon

      RockyRaccoon

      In order to turn off the flicker on ghosts, please pay 10 Atari points!

    2. DeathAdderSF

      DeathAdderSF

      "Good Luck Charlie Brown" would STILL be unreleased.

    3. MrMaddog

      MrMaddog

      They should sell a mini version with lots of games built in that you just plug in the TV and...oh nevermind.

  9. Why is the gameboy advanced called the "gameboy advanced". Souldn't it be called the "gameboy color advanced"

    1. digdugnate

      digdugnate

      cant tell if trolling or....

    2. MrMaddog

      MrMaddog

      And you forgot to call it the NINTENDO Game Boy Advance, oh boy I'm so mad now!!!!

    3. Skippy B. Coyote

      Skippy B. Coyote

      Yeah, yeah. I know I was probably being overly critical, it's just my biggest retro gaming pet peeve when people call the Game Boy a "gameboy". =P

  10. Do you think SEGA will ever make a good modern sonic game right now.

    1. zylon

      zylon

      Last thing they did that I liked was the XBL Sonic 4. :)

    2. ClassicGMR

      ClassicGMR

      I'm going to get roasted for my opinion here but...

       

      Did they EVER make a good Sonic game to begin with? =/

  11. How many of you got an atari 2600 when you were eleven, it was your first cosole that wasn't edutaiment and you were born in the 2000's?

    1. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      I got PONG as a present before Atari too!

    2. save2600

      save2600

      Just wasn't known as "edutainment" then. Didn't hear that phrase until the 90's probably. Got a Radio Shack pong unit called TV Scoreboard (came with a light gun even) the Christmas before I "finally" got an Atari 2600.

      technically first video games played at home were on a Sol Terminal 20. I'm a rare breed too. :D

  12. when I asked "What's your highest score on asteroids?" I meant the vcs version (I forgot about the other platforms :P).

    1. digdugnate

      digdugnate

      hehe for the 'default' vcs game, it's a rollover :) i got bored i think another 30k in.

    2. Eltigro

      Eltigro

      Game one I think I've rolled the score over three or four times before I just stopped... rarely getting below 7 ships in reserve. Not bragging, it's just as is said above, game 1 is a cakewalk compared to other versions. There was an Asteroids week on the 2600 High Score Club one week...

  13. What's your highest score on asteroids? Mine is 100,609 (no that is not a misprint)

    1. Rick Dangerous
    2. ClassicGMR
    3. digdugnate

      digdugnate

      i havent played the arcade version in a long time so i can't remember. :) i did roll over the VCS version about a month ago.

  14. how many of you played sonic mania and got bored after a couple of play throughs, and thus resorted to glitches and cheats for entertianment?

  15. I'm trying to find a copy of visual basic 6.0 on ebay but can't find any under 100

  16. Just got 6 new 2600 games from a used book store. Firefighter, space jockey, sky jinks, atlantis, frogger, and cosmic ark..

    1. ColecoGamer

    1. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      Sometimes ... yeah...sometimes...Worse!

  18. I say "apple" like LUH-PLUH

  19. How would i mod my copy of sonic 3 & knuckles collection?

    1. zetastrike

      zetastrike

      That was one of my favorite PC games as a kid. I loved the MIDI soundtracks.

    2. Dreamcast Gamer

      Dreamcast Gamer

      zetastrike, same! I still have mine so maybe later today I'll find those MIDIs and play them through the SGM soundfont.

  20. I really like orange juice.

    1. Trip2018

      Trip2018

      I don't really like orange juice as much as I said. I give me a terrible stomach ache.

    2. save2600

      save2600

    3. Trip2018

      Trip2018

  21. Trying to fix a wind up toy that came with a make your own paper wind up robot almost 8 years ago. It came with five of these wind up bases. A week later all the destroyed bots ended geting thrown away never to be remembered again. However the bases stayed. One stoped winding up like five years ago but just started fixing it today. It turns out the coil was just loose.

  22. considering making a 2600 pillow

    1. jaybird3rd

      jaybird3rd

      Let's not give them any more harebrained ideas. They'll make it into the SpeakerPillow™©®.

    2. Jess Ragan

      Jess Ragan

      Hopefully not a dakimakura.

    3. Eltigro

      Eltigro

      Pretty sure I've seen a wedge shaped foam pillow that would be easy to turn into a 2600jr.

  23. I want to get steam running on my old windows xp computer so I can download anarchy arcade but it crashes at startup. :(

    1. wongojack

      wongojack

      I don't think Steam is supported on XP anymore due to the version of the browsers that are on there. It doesn't work on my XP machine either.

    2. Trip2018
