  1. Dont play it like moving left will just make you spin left and right spins you right. Use the controller like it's a clock, going in a circular motion. This is a tough game to adapt to with the stock controllers, but apart from the fire button I think it works just as well if not better than a digital controller.
  2. 46050 Almost forgot! The auto-fire bin won’t load so this was manual. My forearm is burning. Might try to squeeze in another game or two before the end of the day.
  3. Not sure the protocol...rewrite previous posts or post anew when you beat a previous high score? Anyway...last minute efforts.. Galaxian 10320 Space Invaders 2012
  4. I am MUCH better than these scores...but time is a factor when adulting. I might try and squeeze in a few better scores...still have 2 hrs est. Galaxian 9510 Megamania 56860 Space Invaders 1432
  5. Trak-Ball an option? It works with Galaxian & SI
  6. Need opinions pls. I've been looking for a crt tv for a while, finally have someone willing to sell me a 25" for 20 bucks. But it doesn't have rca ports, only one input for a coax cable. All my systems are av modded but I have a converter to connect them. Is it worth it? Does the cable connection/conversion degrade the picture?

      I would wait. Why does Florida have a CRT shortage? Lol

      If you can get a hold of a 2nd hand VCR, than you can use that as a A/V to coax converter, plus VCR's have signal filters built in.

      No I just wanted an older TV for the CRT, I've read here they are better suited for older systems. All my systems *do* look better on the older TV. Only one problem. My Colecovision comes up fine, then within 30-60 seconds starts to flicker and goes white. Never did that on my LCD. I've tried everything. I have the power switch mod and the video mod with the one pin plug to RCA output. Hopefully there's a fix, I'll try the VCR for the filter. I still have one in my garage.

  7. Enjoying one of the custom carts CPU made for me. I think he screwed me on the shipping cost though...🤪 IMG_1599.mp4
  8. Galaxian and Space Invaders are good with the T-ball.

      Sign of the times.  I can have beer during work meetings because they can't see me drinking it.

  10. Wow. So sorry to hear. Totally missed this until just tonight. You've done so much for the community and helped me with a lot with my Indian burial ground problems. 🤪 I still have all the 5200 repro carts you made me years ago. Ironically I was recently considering selling/trading them off but no way will I part with them now. I wish you the very best. Miracles can happen and I hope you find one.
  11. That's a good idea. Hadn't thought of that.
  12. Thanks! Ya I've been checking Craigslist, Nextdoor, and Letgo. There's actually a free 13" but I'm looking for somewhere in the 19" range. I'm probably being too fussy lol.
  13. Title says it all. Looking for a 19" or so crt tv. All the thrift stores here got rid of them and I can't find a damn one anywhere. PM me if you have any and live in the Ft Lauderdale area.
  14. Zombie thread alert! I searched for this because I'm playing in the High Score contest on Facebook. When I hit the score I thought I was a lock for the weeks top points, but alas....just a glitch, or an Easter Egg? Anyways, here's a screenshot...Are those possibly initials on the bottom right corner?
  15. Damn tempting but too many mouths to feed already. Someone needs to jump on this deal!
  16. Batari helped me out (as always lol)
  17. My Harmony started doing this...any suggestions would be appreciated. It was working one minute, not working the next. Tried multiple SD cards, and it does this on both my 2600 & 7800. IMG_8759.MOV
  18. Bounty Bob. I had a loose copy but parted with it when I was out of work and $$ was tight. Thankfully, I'm not as obsessed with having every cart (anymore lol).
  19. Albert, can you check your PM?

  20. Is the AA store back open?

      They were closed briefly. They had to clean up after a big staff party or something.


      I understand there was a lot of mopping involved.
