  1. If you can get the common Activision titles for less than $2.50 each with a good label, I would agree. $2.50 is the amount I charge for Activision Atari 2600 labels. For pricing on other Atari 2600 labels just PM me.
  2. You probably right. The original Speedway console was also a 4 player unit. I wonder if Speedway IV is just a cosmetic change over Speedway?
  3. I know there was Speedway and Speedway IV, but was there ever a Speedway II or III console?
  4. Awesome idea! It's on the list. Please keep in mind that I've never considered my current catalog as a "complete set" in the sense of being the end all to be all. There is always room for a new overlay. Thanks for the suggestion.
  5. I think I can help you out. I just sent you a PM. I have a very large catalog of cart labels including Atari 2600 Activision labels. If anyone else is interested please just PM me. Thanks!
  6. I'm going to look into adding a connection for one (or maybe two) buttons. The other idea is very minor but, I'm looking into a different material for the disk. Keep in mind I'm just looking into the possibility and it may not happen. It all about cost and time. Right now what makes these spinners attractive to people is the cost. If the cost goes too high I'm afraid people will loose interest. One step at a time...
  7. Sorry, I don't know much about Nuon.
  8. Another run of USB spinner controllers will be made. I have officially started the process of finding new mouse PCBs to make another run of these spinners. This is going to take some time. At least a month or two for me to nail down the PCBs. I'm also in the process of upgrading my 3D printer which is used to make a couple of key parts of these spinners. That will happen at the same time as the search for the new mouse PCB's. I'm hoping that this next batch of spinners will be ready by September (this could change). I'm thinking about a couple small upgrades that I might add to the spinner as long as it doesn't really effect the price too much. I have also started a list of those interested in purchasing a spinner control. If you are interested and have not made it know you are interested, now is the time to do so. More news to come. Stay tuned...
  9. It would appear that the interest is there for another run of these spinners. I've started a list of people who are interested in purchasing a spinner. I have also started the process to build the next batch of 20. Please keep in mind that this is going to take a few months to put together. I will try to contact people once they are ready to go. If 20 units doesn't cover everyone, I will start yet another run of spinners if time allows. Thanks.
  10. That depends on interest. If I can hit 10 units worth of interest I will make another run of these spinners. Actually they would be slightly different because the mouse PCB I used for these spinners is no longer available. So I would need to start looking for a new mouse PCB. Let me know if you guys are interested.
  11. Okay, Here's a pic showing the t-molding, side art, coin door and control panel installed. I've also started wiring up the cabinet. I still have to finish the marquee, install the Pi-zero, program the controls, and test. Then once that's finished, it's time to connect Robotron to Bosconian. That will be my next post. I plan on doing a video walk around of the whole project at that point. All most done with this segment of the project.
  12. Hey guys, I've had a couple people express interest in purchasing spinners that missed this first run. If you are wanting a spinner and didn't get a chance to purchase in the first run. Please let me know. If I can hit 10 units I will make another run of these spinners. Actually they would be slightly different because the mouse PCB I used for these spinners is no longer available. So I would need to start looking for a new mouse PCB. Let me know if you guys are interested.
  13. I like I-War as well and that game was perfect for an overlay.
  14. I started building the cabinet and control panel at the same time. I don't have any images of the cabinet being built, but I do have a few images after I painted the Robotron cabinet (and installed the marquee light and speaker). I used latex paint (gasp). It was cheap and it is easy to apply with a foam roller. It's hard to tell from the pics but the sides are actually a light grey color and the front is black. I mixed the grey myself using white and black paint that I already had from my Bosconian build. My next pics will show the side art, T-molding, and the screen bezel. More to come shortly...
