  1. The beginning of this thread though haha, oh Yurkie.
  2. Great, thank you very much!
  3. I'm actually not using the Wico controller, which I understand is probably the issue. If I get a Wico stick, can I use the OEM 5200 controller as the keypad? Would this work?
  4. In other port is an Atari 5200 controller as the keypad.
  5. Hi all, I just bought a Y cable but it's giving me some issues. Once I enter the game after entering in the number of players/game mode etc, the joystick is stuck moving right and none of the fire buttons work. The controller works fine when used without the Y cable. For reference, the other controller that is plugged into the 9 pin port is a 2600 controller. Any ideas? Thanks.
  6. Hey, thanks for this awesome idea! I just tried it out and it works wonderfully, now I can finally say goodbye to that godforsaken mylar strip. One question, I haven't yet glued the switches or replaced the select/reset covers, is there anything I specifically need to do in order to make it so the buttons click down sufficiently on the new switches? Thanks!
  7. Hmm, that might just work, thanks! I'll admit ignorance here, but would that mean that I would just pull off the DIP and solder it onto the new PCB?
  8. Update: the deoxit didn't help out unfortunately, so I'll turn to some of the alternate suggestions you guys have mentioned. Thanks for the help!
  9. Thanks all, I just ordered some of the deoxit and will get back to you when I try it out. Still open to other opinions as well, thanks!
  10. Hi all, I just recently picked up a copy of Pitfall 2 that has seen better days. After extensive cleaning with alcohol, the game still doesn't work. Based on the pictures, does it look like there's any hope? Thanks!
  11. Hello all, I just ordered a replacement mylar strip for my Jr., but the reset and select switches only seem to function when I am holding the top of the plastic shell at a 90 degree angle from the cartridge slot. When I try to set it back down, as it would look when screwed back together, the buttons cease to function. I've tried making sure that it isn't simply the mylar slipping out when I shut the case, but it seems to be firmly inside still. Any ideas? Thank you!
