  1. Wow, Frogger is great! Sadly there seems to be only a NTSC version which looks weird on my PAL machine. Did anyone ever make a PAL hack or something like that? It definitely looks soooo much better than the earlier Frogger.
  2. Sounds good. I will use mine on a Philips CM8833 or Commodore 1084S. Not sure which one I will pick. Probably the latter, since it also has the Amiga attached and the Philips already has my Vader attached.
  3. I just got a Jr so I am also looking into this. Seems Tynemouth has some blog articles about modding the Jr: http://blog.tynemouthsoftware.co.uk/2015/02/atari-2600-jr-composite-video-mod.html http://blog.tynemouthsoftware.co.uk/2018/05/easy-atari-2600-vcs-composite-video-mods.html
  4. Paddle based games could be simple enough. Pong, video olympics, breakout...

    Found another bug in Mappy. Get caught by a cat the same moment Hurry comes up. I was stuck and invincible. Until this weird green thing arrived???
  6. I put together a small review of Galagon for those people still on the fence: https://youtu.be/isN4l5Y-C3k
  7. Are you kidding? If not, please storytime!
  8. Yes! The octagonal restrictor. TIL a new word. Your stick is still my main Atari stick. It is really great!
  9. I don’t know either. I have to check them out.
  10. And of course it’s by nanochess. Who else... Thanks for the info!
  11. Thanks for all the great hints! I will test them all out. After all this is no HUGE deal, since the console is almost 40 years old and uses analog video. So I don’t expect a noise free picture. But of course I want to have a decent picture quality anyway...
  12. I modded my Vader about a year ago with a simple single transistor composite out mod. The quality is okay, but I currently have some artifacts, like horizontal bands running up the screen. See attached video... What measures are useful in minimizing those artifacts? Better video cables? Shielding the internal wiring? Putting ferrite cores around the cables? Or a different mod altogether? IMG_7241.MOV
  13. And yet the first chess game for the VCS is still in the making!
  14. The game is amazing. One slight criticism from my wife: please change the humming sound while preparing to fire.
