  1. Just remembered I participated in the Hi Score Competition years ago on BYOAC and got over 900,000 at the time. It wasn't long after this that I got to the point where I could roll the score. Here's a link... http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,94372.msg995155.html#msg995155
  2. It's my favorite game and when I build my MAME cabinet I played it constantly. Now I can pretty much rollover the score without the no-fire trick and no rapid fire.
  3. I could be mistaken but I believe WOW use the joystick in port 2 for one player games. Plug your controller into port 2 and give it a try.
  4. If it didn't get funded and I had to settle for a 3D printed case, I'd just use this technique to make it look nice and smooth... https://all3dp.com/how-to-smooth-pla-prints-without-any-sanding/
  5. He talked about it in the other thread... http://atariage.com/forums/topic/265958-collectorvision-game-system/page-38?do=findComment&comment=4115308
  6. The CollectorVision has really caught my attention. I've been thinking about getting into the ColecoVision scene (never owned one but played a friends when I was a kid) and something like this would definitely interest me. Add in the possibility of a cartridge adapter to accept 2600 (and possibly 7800?) cartridges and I might just pull the trigger.
  7. Honestly the first person to offer a controller for sale similar to the one Ben Heck created is going to forever be a hero to the 5200 community. Heck it might just get me back into the 5200 scene.
  8. If you're looking for a coupler here you go... http://atariage.com/forums/topic/274385-atari-5200-joystick-coupler/
  9. I own the black version of this one from Amigakit and it works very well. It is a few dollars over your $35 price however. http://amigakit.amiga.store/product_info.php?products_id=1311
  10. Throw a digital D-pad on there to complement the analog stick and you have the perfect 5200 controller.
  11. I had one laying around not being used so it seemed like a good candidate. The one thing I do like about having a NUC is it is powerful enough to run newer systems that something like a Raspberry Pi might have issues running.
  12. I got rid of my classic game collection years ago, with the exception of an Amiga 1200. I consolidated it down to two emulation solutions...a MAME cabinet for playing arcade games with actual arcade controls and an Intel NUC running linux and Emulationstation for all of my console needs. I use a couple of 8bitdo SF30 Pro Controllers with the NUC and they work like a charm. I honestly don't miss the clutter.
  13. First couple of years (90-92) I gamed exclusively on this... Remaining few years of college I upgraded to this...
  14. AmigaOS 3.1 got me through college back in the 90s. Still love it to this day. Windows 98 was probably my favorite Windows operating system due to the sheer amount of gaming I did on it. Still remember the first time I installed a 3DFX graphics card and an AWE64 Gold sound card. Magical time. My media server runs on Debian and it's rock solid. But my favorite OS of all time is OS X. Ease of use plus power under the hood makes it my favorite.
  15. Not for me. Just obtained my favorite computer of all time and the machine that got me through college in the early 90s...the Amiga 1200. The case and keys are a little yellow but otherwise it's in great shape. It's been re-capped and is ready for some upgrading. Can't wait to get everything set up.
