Hello there; new member here.
I have a few questions about the VCS Cartridge Adapter that was made for the 5200. I purchased a few 2600 games at a steal price at a local store the other day and I am wondering if there are 2600 games that do not work perfectly with the adapter.
The games I seem to have trouble with are:
1) Night Driver
2) Human Cannonball
When I play Night Driver, the game turns on ok and everything, but when I try and drive the car with the paddle; nothing happens. However, when I play with a normal joystick the car moves for an instant and that's it. Then the game hangs.
In Human Cannonball, I can press the button with the paddles and the guy jumps out and sometimes lands on the net, but I am unable to control the angles of the cannons. Could this just be bad cartridges? Because the adapter seems to be working ok with other games. Maybe I need a real 2600 to play certain games?
