  1. Thank you for pointing them out! Any idea which specific part it is? They've got a bunch.
  2. Hello! I'm helping a friend rebuild a wonky Atari logo arcade joystick for a 2P Cyberball kit cab. It works fine except for the degraded rubber band at the base of the stick, which needs replacement. What's the 2022 way of sourcing a replacement band for this 1090s joystick? I've read that some pinball rubber might fit, but which size, if that the thing? Thanks! Blaine
  3. Bought some OG Xbox and 7800 games from him. Super fast shipping and positive, polite communication. Very cool guy.
  4. https://www.ebay.com/itm/124705620370 Hi there! I have a Roland MT-90S up for auction on the Bay. Some quick main points: * General MIDI 2 (GM2) support for PC/Mac gaming * Can be played as an instrument with direct MIDI connection to a MIDI keyboard * Boxed in original Roland box and packaging * Has original docs and 3.5" floppy discs and power supply * Gotek USB upgraded with included pre-formatted USB drive (has Power SC-55 album to give you something to play out of the box) * Completely cleaned internally * Everything works 100% and the internal speaker sounds fine The Gotek floppy drive emulator was set up by Jesse (Crossbow) from Ivory Tower Collections. He also has a video on his YouTube channel for setting up the USB drive and transferring music to it for direct play on the MT-90S. He did some incredible work on both the setup and the video, and he always has my gratitude. FREE UPS GROUND shipping to the con-US 48. Auction runs through Saturday, May 8, 2021. Feel free to drop me a line with any questions. Thanks!
  5. I have a 2-port 5200 that was s-video modded at the Ivory Tower. It's glorious. If you buy this one, I have no doubt you'll love it.
  6. I am super late to the party, but if it makes it this far down the list, I'll take it.
  7. Hello, all! Looking for a copy of The Dreadnaught Factor for Atari 5200. Anywhere from loose to CIB is fine, not picky as long as it works. Hit me up by DM if you have one you'd like to sell. Thanks! Blaine
  8. PM sent for the 5200, if it hasn't been claimed yet.
  9. Hi! Do you have any pictures of the inside of the system that show the mod work? Any pics of the video output quality on a TV? Thanks!
  10. Very cool! Thank you for your incredible contributions to the Intellivision community.
  11. The time has come for me to share this labor of love with you. It’s somewhere between an Alpha and a Beta project, so please enjoy it as such. It’s a love letter of a game to TRON: Legacy and the soundtrack from Daft Punk, downloadable below. Also below is the complete set of files that were worked on to code this game in both IntyBASIC and in assembler language. It’s completely playable in your favorite Intellivision emulator or on an LTO Flash! cartridge on your genuine Intellivision hardware. === Now, for the details. First thing, though, is that I know you will be passionate about asking me to do upgrades, tweaks, and gameplay modifications to make this better. And justifiably so. Thing is, I haven’t worked on this in over a year and a half. I don’t remember how to even load up the darn thing in IntyBASIC anymore, so I can’t do anything to improve this project any longer. I released it all here so that the folks that are indeed knowledgable about what to do with this project can take up the gauntlet and continue to make this product better for all of our enjoyment. There are many smart people on this forum, much smarter than I am, that hopefully will enjoy this project as much as I did and elevate it to the next level. What you see here wouldn’t be possible, at all, without the contributions of some incredible AtariAge members. They include, but aren’t limited to: DZ-Jay: his contributions to the assembler language portions of this project are amazing. carlson: contributed character animation code for Sam and the Recognizers. Nanochess: contributed the entire demo project included with IntyBASIC - and IntyBASIC! CrossBow: helped play test the game over its iterations and did the video capture. === Gameplay You are Sam Flynn, captured by the evil C.L.U. and forced onto the game grid. Dropped into an endless runner-style game with 25 repeating mazes, C.L.U. stand and watches as four Recognizers pursue you through each progressive maze you complete. Your only defense against the Recognizers is to lure them into the surrounding grid walls, as they will derez as they finishing passing over them. But the walls will derez you too, so be careful! If you’re lucky, you might also catch them standing by on stationary patrol and be able to pass by them without being chased down! This game is an endless runner, which means C.L.U. will eventually get you through his dispatched Recognizers. It really is like the sirens said: the only thing you are supposed to do is “survive”! === Behind The Scenes Ok, the reason the Recognizers cut some slack from time to time is really because of bad coding on my part. They should chase you all the time, but I couldn’t get it to work right. And, of course, now I don’t know anything more than a goat about how to fix it. Not like riding a bicycles, this coding is. I coded in the music by ear from listening to the soundtrack. I love Daft Punk. One way to say this would be to say that C.L.U. plays dirty sometimes and spawns the Recognizers right next to you when you appear in a new maze. Another way to say it would be to say I wasn’t able to back them off and get them to still move. At all. Someone will know what to do. You’ll notice that you often exit one part of the maze but always spawn at the same coordinates when you enter the next screen. Someone will know how to give this continuity and spawn Sam where he exits the previous maze or something similar (opposite side). === Last, But Not Least… TRON: Legacy is a Disney property. I’ve never sold this, will never sell it, and you shouldn’t sell it either. It’s a love letter to the film and meant for all of us to enjoy for free as fans of the Intellivision. If you work on it, and make it better, feel free to take my name off of the title screen and put yours in there. I don’t need credit, and if you contribute to its improvement, you should be credited as such. I hope you enjoy playing with this project. It was tremendous fun for me. I should have put this out there sooner than the December 2018 date that I stopped working on it. I thought I’d lost the project code files due to failure of a backup drive. Turns out, they were still preserved in the PMs right here on AtariAge. Thanks for giving this a try on your own Intellivision or emulator. I hope you dig it. I love the Intellivision and always will. It was the first console my father ever bought me all those 40 years ago. - Blaine tronleg.rom tronleg.zip
  12. Hi! I recently did a rebuild of a Vader 2600 I bought from a local Facebook Marketplace ad. It would be a shame to do a full restoration on a Vader console and not restore the joysticks. So I did. And to help you do the same to your own sticks, I made a video to show you how to get it done. The games must go on! I hope you are doing well and in good health and spirits during these trying days. Praying daily for each of us. God bless.
  13. Both of these ROMs are great. In my opinion, Wizard of Wor is the better of the two and is so much fun. This was a great purchase and I'd absolutely recommend it to any LTO Flash owner. If there are future revisions of these ROMs, it would be great to have an auto fire option in Cosmic Avenger. It's tough moving my thumb up and down the two side buttons repetitively to fire both the missiles and the bombs at the same time. But it's a well-programmed game and a great add to the LTO.
  14. How's this for timely since a question about fixing up a Vader just showed up? If you’ve never had the chance to get console restoration parts from them before, Console5.com is a wonderful resource. Luke and his team do a great job of putting together restoration kits and have a wiki with parts lists, schematics, and how-to knowledge. I put a Console5 “Refresh Kit” into an Atari 2600 Vader revision 16 and put together a video to help you get it done if you’re looking to restore your own 2600. Hope you are safe and healthy out there, praying for us all daily. God bless.
  15. Next-to-last bump. Here's a freebie. It's telling of the times that an AA member for 12 years with 1,400+ community rep points selling a VA0 for $70 shipped U.S. gets no bites. This would be a great pickup for someone wanting to get into DC. The guy loves them enough to buy upgraded ones, so it follows it's probably in good condition from a DC passionate seller. I hope it sells before it hits the Bay and that someone in the AA community gets it.
  16. $70 shipped U.S. is a very honest deal. I have a DC and love it. Someone will get a very nice console for a very reasonable price + shipping deal. GLWS.
  17. That is a well-written, detailed FS post with lots of pics. Your attention to detail is much appreciated. That's also a good value for what you're selling. I have one, but a free bump never hurts the sale prospect.
  18. That is an interesting controller mod. Did you do the mod work personally or did you originally acquire it pre-modded?
  19. I love mods that are free. With just an SD card, some files, and a computer, you can softmod your Nintendo 3DS right at home. A softmodded 3DS can play backups, run homebrew, and do other useful tasks. It's Luma3DS that make it all come together. Shout out to the amazing coders that give their time and energies and share their content on GitHub to make all of this possible. Also, the folks at Hacks.Guide do amazing work documenting the mod process for several consoles, including the 3DS. I made a donation to them to honor their work. Check them out at https://hacks.guide. Here's how it's done:
  20. The Nintendo Switch is easier than ever to mod to back up your game cards and load homebrew content. How easy? With an unpatched Switch, a microSD card, a RCM Jig, and a data cable, you can do it in 10 minutes! All the files to do it are conveniently stored in one place to make it a quick and easy setup. To save from having to go to about 8-9 different websites, download all the stuff, uncompress it, and move it all over the place, I put it all together on a Google Drive with two folders. One goes on your PC and the other goes on your Switch microSD card. Saves a ton of time and makes sure everything will be in the right place when you inject the fusee-primary.bin payload to launch Atmosphere (homebrew). I really wanted to make this as simple and quick as possible so you'd be able to get it up and running right away. I can literally mod a Switch in less than the 10 minutes, but once you get the files, cable, jig, and microSD card, you'll be able to mod yours in 10 minutes - or less! I put this together to help you out with it. Drop me a line if you have any questions or want some help getting yours modded. Thanks!
