  1. 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?
  2. What is the advantage of these over the BackBit cart?
  3. This is one of these situations where you have just amazing stuff, and if you can find two or three good trades for a few items, you'll be lucky. I looked through your wants and I wish I had something to trade you. I have a ton to trade, too much super weird, not Nintendo or what people want these days, and finding people who want what I have and have something that I need is a needle in a haystack. I sort of gave up trying for the most part. I really just try to focus on trading one system at a time rather than maintaining an accurate trade list. And I hope I'll have time to sell all the spare stuff eventually. Good luck, it's fun to see so much cool stuff in one place available!
  4. Can anyone suggest a reliable RAM testing device? I need to test 2114s as well as 4116s and others. I saw the Inquisitor at this site, which I could assemble, but not sure if something newer is better: http://lockwhenlit.com/products.htm
  5. Applesauce is great for Apple ][. Requires MacOS (or emulation) and Disk ][ drive, which you must add a sync sensor to for protected rips (not difficult). Applesauce does C64 and A8, as well as other single sided 40 track formats, but requires a third party Apple ][ compatible 40 track drive, which is a little harder to get ahold of, but readily available. It does flux imaging of those formats, although there is no easy way to turn protected flux images into emulation friendly disk images. This is true for all imaging solutions. Applesauce does all 720K disks, but requires an Apple 3.5" external drive, which is readily available. If you sway an Apple SuperDrive into one of those cases, you can do 1.44mb rips as well. Flux imaging requires installation of a sync sensor which isn't hard. If you have Applesauce questions, I'm pretty familiar with the system. It is much easier to use than the other fluxing systems because it has excellent software. I think the other teams are trying to get better UIs for their fluxing products as well.
  6. General Instruments had the SD-0X0 and the SD-200 console lines based on their chipsets. Responsible for a dozen or more generic looking branded consoles around the world, and much fewer with SD-200. Or it could be 1292 like Acetronic, based on the Signetics 2650 and chipset. I think I compared the contact spacing and it didn't match up with anything, but I should revisit at some point. It would be really weird to be a clone of anything more sophisticated.
  7. I never figured these out. I think of them occasionally. Obviously they are from a clone system of some kind, but it remains unclear. Something General Instruments chipset.
  8. I desperately need the black pad controller parts. PM sent.
  9. Neat. I'd certainly buy one if it could test 2114 RAM as well. Do you have a link to the ZIF sockets that work with it?
  10. OK, here are 6 more dumps. With cleaning and reinsertion between dumps. Thanks for looking at these! CV Destroyer 2.bin CV Destroyer 3.bin CV Destroyer 4.bin CV Destroyer 5.bin CV Destroyer 6.bin CV Destroyer 7.bin
  11. I dumped this EPROM cart. Is it different from release, or is it an undumped version? Dumped using MaxFlash. -ian CV Destroyer EPROM.bin
  12. For the Intellivision connoisseur. Really fun to see the pictures. It's something I'd be interested in, but couldn't afford at that price. Good luck with the sale!
  13. I'd be interested in a redesigned PS, and I'd buy 5. Assuming someone puts some thought into the design.
  14. https://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?_ipg=200&_ssn=ianoid&_sop=1 Have 4 spares I'm selling. Not in production anymore. Actual auctions.

    Interested. PM.
  16. I didn't ask for it. It came to me with other stuff. And I don't know what to do with it.
  17. https://www.joystickjockeys.com/shop/AppleII/3 I listed many of my spare loose original floppies at this Square store. Same payment service as you use to buy your lunch from a food truck. Just a few Atari 8-bit titles right now, but I hope to add 30 or 40 more in the near future. Trying to escape the 'bay a little bit by trying this store. It's very basic and hopefully easy to navigate. I'd also be happy to trade anything pictured on the website for other software or video games that I don't have.
  18. Super helpful. I did manage to get it all back together. This unit required: decorrosion of the power barrel and battery pack epoxy repair of the screw posts a little reforming of the post screws which were bent It worked when tested with batteries, so I put it back together. The extra switches on the front created the pictured variants, from Super Pong, at least catch and Super Pong. I didn't want to deal with desoldering the shield, which would presumably reveal the Super Pong chip installed in this regular Pong unit. The unit did supposedly come from someone that worked at Atari. For someone to bother modding one of these, rather than just playing Video Olympics, you'd think it would have still been a valued commodity, as in the late 70s. Thanks again for the help with rehabbing this unit.
  19. I wish I had the time and space to go through it. Where are you located, that would help those who could pick it up.
