  1. Would anyone attend a monthly-bi-monthly public domain movie night where you can riff on movies and talk with fellow Atariagers? I'm thinking about creating a Discord server for this purpose.

      Cool idea! I actually host a bad movie show on public access here in my neck of the woods. Public domain trash flicks, cartoons, even did an episode of all vintage educational movies!

      I like it.  I think it's an interesting idea.  Personally though, I'm just too busy this time of year...I'm pretty sure I'd be working and unable to participate...

      I decided to go ahead with it. You can look at the movie lineup on the announcement thread:https://atariage.com/forums/topic/306754-coming-soon-atariage-public-domain-movie-night/?tab=comments#comment-4536382

       

       

  2. Oh no! My seller of choice for my imports has raised their shipping prices from $2.49 to $19.99!

      The cheap connect speedpak shipping isn't shipping to North America right now from what I was told. It's DHL, EMS, etc. or nothing right now because of the Apocalypse.

      Ah, that makes sense.

      Being of mixed European ancestry (German, English, Polish, Lithuanian), I am constantly at war with myself.  Sometimes my German wants to just take over the other countries and I need to kick my own ass into submission. Ah well, C'est la vie.  Wait a second, I'm not french!  Or am I?

  4. I just ate 2,700mg of sodium and drank two glasses of mountain dew. I can feel my body succumbing to sodium poisoning.

  5. If you want music you can easily listen to, Art of Noise is a great band. 

  6. I just ate some General Tso's Chicken and it feels like my tongue is being stung by thousands of hornets.

      Here is the warehouse that I bought in Timbuktu.  The seller said it was full of religious artifacts, alien technology and government secrets.

  9. Seinfeld is a show that's only funny if you don't watch it for a while.

      I think it's always funny,  but to each his own...Some of the antics of George were too hilarious/relatable...

    2. Magmavision2000

      Magmavision2000

      @GoldLeader I like the show, I just think it's funnier if you wait a couple of years in between watching it. Kind of like Family Guy.

    3. GoldLeader

      Family Guy is Always funny too!   But I get your point.  😉

  11. If I ever actually LEARN how to program, I'm gonna try to recreate Heavyweight Champ (1976) but put it on the 2600 (or 8-bit). It probably won't be accurate, but it would be better than nothing.

  12. To people who replace their system's disk drive with an SD card reader. Why? Wouldn't a modchip give you the exact same thing without removing the drive?

    1. masschamber

      masschamber

      That's weird to prefer cd read errors to no cd read errors.  Seriously shining force 3  and a modded saturn, better save ever 5 seconds or else loose all progress to a read error,

      I agree with masschamber. I love 1 system 1 loader solutions. Replacing a drive that is failing or has failed with an SD card is, in my opinion, just upgrading a classic not destroying it.

  13. If you like Arcade Archives and want to share your high scores, I've made an Arcade Archives club! https://atariage.com/forums/clubs/51-the-not-so-official-arcade-archives-club/

     

     

     

  14. With two mini-updates within a couple of weeks of each other, I think Nintendo should've just delayed the 10.0.0 update and optimized it. 

  15. The 3DS/WiiU eshop is gonna close in 42 countries on July 31st, 2020. If your country is on the list, redownload your games while you still can.

  16. (See link) I decided to go ahead and write about the topic I had in mind for Lost Gaming Vault, 70s video games! I have written about each game in more detail than the 64DD one, and there are pictures! If you have any ideas for Lost Gaming Vault, just comment on the entry! https://atariage.com/forums/blogs/entry/16666-lost-gaming-vault-70s-video-games/

     

     

  17. Rich Evans was right! Cameron Mitchell never said tums festival, it was in Samurai Cop!

  18. I'm going to work on another entry for Lost Gaming Vault tomorrow, I have a topic in mind, but it may contain too many games to talk about in detail and I don't want to make another 64DD type entry for a while. If you have any ideas that would be interesting, just reply to this post!

      You should make a Food Club.

  19. Vs. Super Mario Bros. is a great psychological game. You're used to the original levels, so every difference in this game almost feels like a betrayal.

    1. retrorussell

      retrorussell

      Pretty much all VS. games are decidedly harder than the NES original.  Some just have tougher enemies, and some have a different placement of the level layout at times (like SMB).

  20. I accidentally bought 2 of one item on eBay, so I sent a cancellation request (keep in mind, this was right after I realized I had bought more than one). It got shipped so my request got rejected. Oh well, I guess I'll have two DS chargers.

    1. DragonGrafx-16

      DragonGrafx-16

      I ordered 2 GBA battery doors on Ebay a while back for 2 GBAs that where missing battery doors (A white and a clear pink one) so I could sell them... the seller just said send a note of which colors I wanted... instead of getting the 2 colors they were both pink. The seller said he messed up and would send me a white one but it never arrived. 

    2. jd_1138

      jd_1138

      Yeah that sounds like modus operandi for most sellers.  They instantly marked items "shipped" even if they won't actually be shipped for a day or two.  Kinda sucks, but at least it's something you might need in the future.

    3. DragonGrafx-16

      DragonGrafx-16

      As soon as the shipping label is printed it is marked as shipped by Ebay... the seller should have noticed something weird had happened when two different orders of the same item were from the same buyer...

  21. Tube Panic must've killed when it was in the arcades "Spinning 3D Tubes" in 1984!

      Looks great, but I never saw this game until MAME in the late 90's.  Must not have been many in US.

  23. What's the name of the orange cat from Garfield?

      Love your handle, Rocky... I actually asked for that nick at one time, but you already had it... I also thought about Bungalow Bill... and my former username was on that track as well.  I think you'll like mine if you take a second look at it.  :)

      I am getting reacquainted with the forum and discovered the attachments section.  I discovered this one I uploaded way back when and thought to post it here.  I think I wrote it - it seems like my sense of humor, but who knows?  LOL

  25. Does anyone know any good tutorials for BASIC? I can't seem to find one.

    1. bluejay

      bluejay

      Depends on what kind of BASIC.

      If it doesn't matter, try the VIC-20 manual.

      If you want to learn a better version of BASIC, the CoCo Extended Color BASIC is also superb.

      If you have an old computer, start from its manual. If it's bad, then consult a different manual. If there are no good manuals for your computer(very rare circumstance), then get another computer(or download an emulator, or whatever)

      If Applesoft BASIC is OK:

      the referenced online simulator is actually decent:
