  1. Update - I took Crossbow's advice and cut the 75 ohm resistor. It did improve the signal on my TV enough that I was able to reduce the brightness to factory setting and the picture is still acceptable. An improvement!
  2. Thanks so much. I'll do some investigation
  3. Hi- I have a light sixer that I modded RCA composite from the lesser priced mods on Ebay. The light sixer has also had a recap kit. I'm pretty excited with the composite result as my screen is very sharp, rock solid stable, and a drastic improvement over the old RF. However, the colors are a bit dull and could use more contrast. So much so that I have to increase my TVs brightness and contrast to get a good picture. Its a minor annoyance, but I'm at the point where I want to tinker with this. I've seen threads discussing bypassing certain resistors to get more juice to the video output, but I could be talking poppycock here. Can somebody provide some input or a general discussion or links to other threads on where to look to increase contrast/video output from the unit?
  4. Thanks for the replies, and I have to change my settings as i was never notified of the replies! Lol
  5. Thx all for the comments. $2 average is the goal. I have many games that are worth 10+. But your points are well taken. Perhaps sell the higher worth ones individually and put the rest into lots. Any tips for the lots? I thought about having separate lots for lettered carts vs pictured cards (mostly Atari commons).
  6. I’m divesting my cart collection and plan to do it primarily over EBay, unless somebody can suggest a better idea (?) Mostly if not all commons. Very few collectibles/rares. Timeline - Im open to divest slowly over time and would like to net $2 avg per common cart. Open to all thoughts, suggestions and ideas. Thanks
  7. Yeah, this is impressive. Check off another arcade game redone right.
  8. Has anybody hacked this rom to just have continuous loop of the color/logo? Or has anybody seem a rom where its just this ? I'd like it for a streaming background.
  9. Mail call !
    - 2600-adapter
    - drop in S-video/composite/pause mod for my light sixer
    - EL wire for the light sixer
    Project photos and videos to follow soon!


  10. Done! Ordered a Peril T. Good luck and looking fwd to the final release.
  11. Playing this WIP religiously. Shaking my fist at this wonderfully annoying fun game! Looking fwd to final release. Do you have a donate site? I've played enough that I feel guilty and would like to chip in. Thanks.
  12. Thanks. I just got the same parts and had to guess what was what and for. This is a big help. Good luck.
  13. Hi - I have a light sixer that needs rehab. See the photo. This is an intermittent video problem. So far this glitch only occurs on Atari Age's Test Cart (awesome btw) and Realsports Tennis. All other games appear normal. Ideas of whats causing this? I can start with the capacitors and the voltage regulator, unless you think going straight to the chip swap is needed. Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks!
  14. Ok it’s been a while. Does anyone want to try again? Vintage gaming is a lot more popular now. Sent me a DM with your thoughts? At at the very least I’d like to try an informal 2600 meet and greet and gaming every once and a while.
