  1. Listing things on eBay belongs in the Auction Central forum please.
  2. Hmm, they don’t have the 5 pin keyboard cable, which is what this unit is missing. Thanks though! That store has a ton of other useful stuff.
  3. AV sounds perfects and the picture is so nice. I have it working with MULE, which I believe is 48K. Maybe all that’s wrong with this 1200XL is that missing cable. I also need to make sure all the keys work. Can anyone suggest a 5 pin cable I could order?
  4. Thanks. Yeah, I guess I need to fashion or buy a 5 pin cable. I’d rather buy one, if anyone has any suggestions. I’m also guessing or hoping that same cable connects the top row of keys. I have it starting up some carts, although it’s a little weird with the AtariMax. Most of my ROMs don’t work on it. I think I need to program a SALT cart and test it to make sure there aren’t any RAM issues. Sound is also really noisy through RF, but then the shielding is off. I should also try AV.
  5. Have this loverly 1200XL I want to get working. It starts up to the Atari screen, which is not something I’m familiar with. Usually these go straight to Basic, right? Well, I opened it up and I’m wondering if there is a 5 pin cable missing from the keyboard to the motherboard. Is that normally used? Note that although the computer starts up, the LED doesn’t light up. Unfortunately I don’t have a SALT cart handy, although I have some AtariMax carts I could load with some ROMs if needed.
  6. Interesting, but belongs in the auction forum.
  7. All SNES are reproduction?
  8. Has anyone built one of these boards? Looks like fun, but I'd prefer not to bother if the lights don't really do much. I've heard they flicker too fast to be useful. I haven't seen any reviews of the unit or mention of how practical it is over a regular diagnostic cart. https://github.com/tebl/c64-blinkendiag

    agacart SD card

    I didn't realize that it came with a memory card when I picked it up. And no, it did not. The seller must have kept it.
  10. Please add me to the list for a copy of this game.
  11. I'm trying to set up an SD card for the Agacart I just got second hand. Sadly it didn't include the original MicroSD, which apparently was loaded with some homebrew and stuff. Does anyone have a zip file of that or their current already setup SD card to send me, so I can avoid the renaming and re-file typing part of setting up the card? Thanks, ian
  12. I recently acquired a MultiFlashROM for MSX. I have it setup so I can flash one ROM at a time by using the command line. I'd prefer to use the MULTIROM.ODF approach where it displays a menu. Alas, I am too lazy to set up a menu. I'm hoping someone has a pre-made volume I can use to save me the hours it will take to set this up. Has anyone set up one of these with a few hundred ROMs? If not, I'll just flash each game manually as I want to play it, which will surely be only occasional anyway.
  13. These are all pretty final looking and probably no different from released versions, but if anyone wants to compare them to released, have at it.

  14. Hi, I'm looking for someone in Argentina willing to buy some gaming items for me on mercadolibre. It is very difficult to buy on mercadolibre from the US or other countries. I am happy to pay extra for your help, or compensate you in trade. I have a ton of classic gaming stuff for trade. I could also trade well in excess of the value of the items I'm hoping to buy if you are interested in games. I have a large variety of video and computer game stuff to trade. Thanks, gracias, ian
  15. I try to quickly eyeball an average from recent eBay sales. I ignore items that are active or completed without a sale, unless I have no further sold data. And I ignore high and low outliers. If I am selling here or person to person, I shoot for what most people say, around 20% below that eBay average since that is around my expenses on eBay, although you may still have to soak up PayPal fees. I suggest you add that 3% into your prices and not require gift payment. Bill, if you can sell your stuff in person at a show, it is very satisfying. You should be able to sell at least 20% of your stuff on the initial go, or way more if you price aggressively. There used to be a show in Cleveland that I went to maybe 20 years ago that I'm sure is quite a bit bigger. I wonder if they are having that this year? Or if you feel like driving to Wisconsin next year, Midwest Classic is awesome. Good luck!
  16. I love to add to this list. Ape Escape by Kevin Bagley for SAMS, which is a Crazy Climber clone. It says Mockingboard optional on the disk label. And the manual says Sound/Speech I in slot 4. Playing a WOZ of the disk in Virtual ][, the Mockingboard sound is not obvious. I think the clicks when you climb are more complex, but otherwise I can't figure out how it's using the MB. By the way, the controls are W I A L. So weird. Ape Escape - Disk 1, Side A.woz
  17. I remembered one of the best forums for vintage computing, namely obscure stuff, is the vcfed.org forums. But before I could click ‘post’, I got deep enough into the unit to find an unplugged cable from the motherboard to the video daughterboard. It gives me video, but I can’t get it to recognize a disk yet. Could be not having the right boot disk, but I have tried several ZH and MS-DOS disks. Will keep working on it.
  18. I picked up one of these and I haven’t been able to find the community for them to get some help. Does anyone have any suggestions? Forums or weirdly named Facebook groups? This beast has a 9 pin out, probably CGA. I don’t have a CGA monitor handy to test it, but I did use a couple of CGA to VGA boards and neither worked. The thing powers up and beeps. Not at all sure how to get it to read a disk or do anything. I figure it will be fun to get to know it a little and CP/M or HDOS my way to excitement. Even have a few games on disks.
  19. I always love it when someone drills down into the ownership and corporate history. Thanks for that. Personally, I don't believe anything will come of this, aside from some investors losing some money. I would definitely want to check it out if the hotels did come to fruition for a meal or a drink, but probably only once, because it probably would not be great. This is just another example of the pimping of the Atari name, which has not been used for anything good since the Jaguar, or arguably something else ST related that came afterwards.
  20. This belongs in the WANTED forum. Not here.
  21. I’m trying to run SCRAM original cassette on an 800xl with a 410. It loads partially, getting through the basic loader, then when I get well into loading after the Fuji screen, it fails with the above error, on both the 16K side and the 24K side. Any suggestions or ideas?
