  1. Yeah man, give it time. It'll update, eventually. Tons of fun to be had but the updates can take a while. I am using my VCS primarily for streaming right now but it will eventually go into my home theater room and be used more for games.
  2. A couple pre rendered explosions instead of randomizing each individual pixel might be good. Select large/small/green/orange/red at random from 3 or 4 pre rendered animations. I like the larger ones btw.
  3. Attention all PC people!!! Check out my give away thread HERE for a great deal on a Dell laptop!!!

    1. GoldLeader


      I just got mine repaired !   Otherwise I might have wanted it!  Very nice of you to give it away though :)

  4. Alrighty guys and gals, I have another laptop to give away! Dell Inspiron 15" Intel Core Duo @1.86 GHz 4 GB DDR2 RAM 80 GB hard drive DVD RW drive This has Linux Mint 32 bit installed. I can't seem to get the WiFi card to function in Linux but it was working when it was a Windows machine. I just don't have the time to mess with it and besides, I was just going to give this one away anyway. The battery no longer holds a charge so it must be plugged in to operate. Comes with power brick. Free pick up for anyone interested or, you can pay for shipping. I would estimate around $35 bucks or so for USPS.
  5. Nice!!! My tracking shows delivered also. I wasn't expecting it until Monday either. I'm at work now so I guess my wife already knows that I bought another game!🤣
  6. PC. Hmm... Just checked again and nothing is listed.
  7. The Atari VCS has been officially removed from the Game Stop website. There are no more all in packages, base units or controllers. Time to keep an eye on Best Buy!
  8. Payment submitted! Thanks again for doing this Al.🏆
  9. Yes, they introduced that option in the last BIOS update. Atari said they were working on that option many months ago, but seeing as AMD writes the BIOS for their chip, Atari was at their mercy. It's nice because that eliminates the need for GRUB and rEFInd when trying to load an alternate OS.
  10. Congratulations Old CS1! Enjoy that cart! And thank you Adolescent for having a fun give away!!!
  11. Just saw the new video on You Tube. Very nice work. I like the teleporting very much and I get a chuckle every time the loading screen comes up (Releasing the fumes-breathe deep). 🤣 Love the work , keep it up!
  12. It sure would be nice for these things to come with instructions. Just a card would be great instead of opening the box and then having to search the interwebz for features and instructions.
  13. There were actually only 3 games included: Games-Return Fire (NO CASE) / The Horse / Space Hulk The rest were just boxes: Boxes only-Pebble Beach Golf / Shock Wave / Twisted-The Game Show / C.P.U. Bach / NFL John Madden Football / GEX / Star Control II Shock Wave-Operation Jumpgate / STRAHL / Panzer General / Theme Park Road Rash-Music CD ONLY(GUIDE) / 2-Guides ONLY-Shaghai Triple Threat / FIFA International Soccer
  14. The joystick with spinner function could be a selling point if implemented properly and advertised. There are a few games on the VCS that use the spinner with great success however Atari needs to promote that function more (advertise and communicate better as they need to do with all things). The joystick is a good quality unit, although I wouldn't hammer on it like a CX40. You should try one before passing judgement. They are currently on sale at Game Stop for less than $30. You could probably get one for the same price through Best Buy with price matching.
  15. I already have 3 real Lynx, I was just interested in the Steam deck as a portable gaming device, not as a Lynx replacement.
  16. I looked into getting one but they are way too expensive for my budget. Maybe when they come down to around $300.
  17. That box art is super! Looks like a mid 80s Atari box. I love the whole aesthetic.
  18. Cyrano J. has already released a patched version of this game that corrects the steering. It is available as a free download if you have a Skunkboard or Game Drive.
  19. Actually here is an explanation from one of the devs: I can’t speak full to that since I didn’t do the programming/porting. But from what I understand, the input system that we used for the game we built in unity didn’t work with the VCS, so a different input handler had to be made in our game to be used with the VCS. With our release timeline, it was put down as a note to work on a future update I may not have the facts completely right but it came down to the fact that the VCS works a quite bit different than all the other platforms, so we were happy enough to get the controller to work. Which doesn’t seem to be working perfectly with the reset button, so we will keep working on that.
  20. I remember reading in the Discord server that they would not be adding Classic support as it does not provide the needed accuracy for some of the puzzles.
