  1. Honestly, it took me two years of waiting patiently and consistently checking eBay in order to get a complete in box copy of Diner at a fair price. (I ended up paying $65.). It does come up, but as has been mentioned, there are a lot of people on eBay trying to gouge you, so just be patient and it will eventually come up. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

  4. This game doesn't have the best reputation, but I actually love it as well. Different strokes, I guess.... Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

  9. Had a chance for one last game before bed. This is my personal high score in this game, so I'm pretty happy. 1,568,000 Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  10. Ha! Yeah, I got that System III off eBay a while back. It looked perfect, practically unused, but when I tried to play it, nothing worked at all. I tore open the controllers and cleaned them. Then I tried to clean out the cartridge port as best I could, but still nothing. So, every once in a while I get it out and see if I can get it working, and today I actually managed to get it going! The controllers are actually really sharp and responsive. It's a wonderfully pleasant surprise. [emoji3] Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  11. Actually had a reasonably good game, for once. (For me, at least.) 235,800 Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

  13. That's definitely not it. As I said, I tested it out with a dozen different cartridges (and the LTO Flash) on a 2609, a 2609a, a Tandyvision, a GTE Sylvania model, two different Intellivision IIs, a Super Video Arcade and in Nostalgia. It happened in every single case. I was absolutely exhaustive in my investigation, as I was curious what the cause was. The only conclusion I could come to was that it is a bug in the code. What I can't figure out is why some other people don't experience it. I will say that I don't think I happens unless you are near the end of the second wave (the second Pandemonium) and have not yet died. That's not to say that it doesn't happen on all sorts of different circumstances, but I have never seen it happen in the first one. It's just very strange... All the more so, since some people don't encounter it at all. (Also, keep in mind, it isn't a typical Intellivision game freeze. The game crashes and the screen goes black. It's quite unique to this game, actually.) Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  14. That just seems unbelievable to me, as it happens to me 100% of the time unless I actively manage the situation (meaning, primarily, my extra lives). I'm not saying that I don't believe you, it's just difficult for me to wrap my mind around, given my experience. I wonder if it has anything to do with using autofire. (I use the autofire all the time when I am playing, since I have serious tendonitis in both hands.) Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  15. I'm surprised that more people aren't complaining about the black screen crash. I tested that out exhaustively two seasons ago and had it happen on every single one of my Intellivisions and on Nostalgia. I tried several different carts and the LTO Flash, as well. It makes playing the game so nerve-racking for me, as I never know when the game is just going to stop, go blank and force me to start over... [emoji26] Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
