  1. My youtube video in the link below shows a summary of how i got rid of the Atari 5200 switchbox that is bulky, inconvenient, prone to failures, and is expensive to replace. Even when it works, it usually does not give a clean signal. I ditched the switchbox and RF altogether by applying two mods: 1) the switchbox bypass power mod from console5.com and 2) the UAV board from thebrewingacademy.com. PLEASE READ THE NOTES SECTION OF THE VIDEO FOR MORE DETAILS NOT MENTIONED IN THE VIDEO. I am not an experienced modder, and do not post a lot of videos, so i would really appreciate your positive comments and likes. rradi

  4. Hello there! I'm new here, and I came to ask few questions to the mighty atari fans out there! I'm from a scoring website https://www.video-games-records.com/home.html (which I highly recommend you if you want to show your scores on every atari systems, or more), and I was wondering what was the main differences between games that are in all these platforms (2600/5200/7800). Let me explain you: when I propose a new game on the website, the game will be tidy with games from the same system (2600, jaguar...) but sometimes you can link some games when they are the same (for instance, games that are on PS3 and PS4 will be both add on the same platform, together). So, I was wondering what was the differences between the games that are on 2600, 5200 and 7800, and especially, what are the differences in the SCORING itself? For example, Joust or Ms-Pac Man both came on the 3 systems. Are they the exact same game? Or are they different? What about the gaming itself, is it easier to score/play on a 7800 system or 5200 than on a 2600? It's confusing, because you can play your 2600 games on the 7800. To conclude, my major question is: are the games different? Does something change in the way of playing (with the controller for instance) ? And if not, should I regroup both games (for instance Moon patrol) in 1, or add 2 on differents platforms? Thanks for clarifying this, if you know more! I have all these systems, but I can not fix my atari 7800, for a reason I ignore (even if I follow every tutorial out there to clean/repear it), and my atari 2600 is still functional. Great to see so many still pationated guys here! Cheers!
  5. lot of people think Bubsy started on Atari (really the SNES and then Genesis) so .... sure... why not! Here we have it folks... BUBSY : Kitt'N Kaboodle This fun hack of Fast Eddie was made possible by Hack-O-Matic 3 and some coloring by KevinMos3 who has already made many good color hacks for Atari 2600 games. The Woolies are at it again stealing Bubsy's stuff and this time they stole EVERYTHING and stored it on the planet Kaboodle!!! Bubsy will need to JUMP OVER the Woolies to get it all back. In the game you'll see objects Bubsy needs to collect on based on items he collected in... Bubsy: Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind. (Yarnball, exclamation marker point) Bubsy 2 (Nerf gun, Trading card) Bubsy Fractured Furry Tales (Ball with exclamation point, extra life shirt) Bubsy 3D (Rocket part, atom) Bubsy 3D: Bubsy Visits the James Turrell Respective ("No Relief" gag from the fan made game) And even the newest which came out recently that I'm enjoying... Bubsy: Woolies Strike Back. (glowing yarn ball) This was originally started on the Atari VCS/2600 and since the code for Fast Eddie for the 2600 and 400/800 were very similar, the Atari 400/800/XL/XE version soon followed. Finding it fun to put Bubsy on one more Atari system, the 5200 version was also created. Not crazy about how this XL Conversion to the 5200 has Bubsy always running but meh... it's done. If someone can figure out how to get the main character to stop running that would be greatly appreciated. Enjoy! Bubsy0 5200 R1.bin

  7. Lots of pics ahead. Hello, everyone! I am parting out my Atari 5200. The audio circuit is toast, and the cost of another board is more than I want to invest in it. Also, I want to put some 5200 parts out there that might be needed by fellow collectors waiting for them. I have a number of 5200 parts for sale, and they are all working 100%. All prices include shipping to the US 48 contiguous states. I accept PayPal or local pickup. Here we go! SOLD (2) Atari 5200 CX52 Gold Rebuilt Joysticks. I personally ordered the gold kits from Best at about $50 each with the shipping. I personally rebuilt and tested the joysticks. They have about three plays each on them from testing. As Best says, they should be lifetime joysticks. I can sell them as a pair shipped together or individually. $79 shipped individually, $150 shipped together if bought by the same person. (1) Atari 5200 Power Supply. Works 100%. $25 shipped. (1) Atari 5200 RF Adapter. Works 100%. $25 shipped. SOLD (1) Atari controller storage door. The plastic door at the back of the unit that always gets broken or someone already lost. This one has been polished up nicely and has only a few scuffs left here and there. Bottom hinge points are intact. $25 shipped. (1) RF Metal Shield. Shiny and complete. $10 (1) Atari 5200 Box. It’s complete and all sides are present. I’d guess it had styro when new, but empty currently. If you’re looking for one, and don’t have one yet, you can do much worse than this one. I’ve displayed it in my collection and thought it looked good. Most boxes seem to go around $80 on eBay. I can do $40. Games, games, games! Priced as marked, includes shipping to con US 48. All are tested and working. Boxed Games All five are complete boxes. They all have tab wear where they are opened and closed, but the bottoms are great. See pics for more detailed look at them. (1) Super Breakout – includes box, cart, overlays. $7 (1) Centipede – includes box, cart, manual, and overlays. $7 (1) Missile Command – includes box, cart, and overlays. $7 (1) Pac-Man – includes box, cart, and overlays. $7 (1) Pole Position – includes box, cart, and manual. $7 Loose Games (1) Centipede $4 (1) Pac-Man $4 (1) Missile Command $4 (1) Football $4 (1) Galaxian $4 (1) Star Raiders $4 (1) Pac-Man $4 (1) Star Raiders $4 (1) Super Breakout $4 (1) Galaxian $4 (1) Pac-Man $4 (1) Galaxian $4 (1) Super Breakout $4 (1) Dig Dug $4 That’s the list! If you see something you’d like, but don’t like the price, make me an offer. I’m flexible. It’s more important to me to get this stuff out to the Atari community than to try to make big bucks. Also, adding pictures over the next few minutes as the forum allows. Thanks, everyone! - Blaine Pics of first joystick:
  8. Does anyone know what the color-coded wires are for the Atari 5200 pinout. I searched online and I could only find what each pin does. I want to know what color is associated with each pin. I am making my y-cable. I have a male to female 15-pin cable and a y-cable with 15-pin female and with two 9-pin males. I have some 5200 controllers and plenty of 9-pin controllers.
  9. Sorry if this is a stupid question (or been ask before), but I'm looking to make an Atari 5200 controller with arcade controls. I'm a little embarrassed to admit this, but I don't actually have an Atari 5200, but I thought it might be something I could sell to help collectors and people who like the 5200 games, since the 5200 controllers tend to break. I want to have an arcade joystick, arcade buttons, and an arcade trackball. If possible, I would like to be able to have wiring and connectors to use with the 2600 and 7800. Also a way to add paddle like controls and 2600 keyboard controls for 2600 games would be nice. I don't see something like this in the AtariAge store. Again, I'm sorry if I'm just an idiot on this subject. Finally, sorry if this is the wrong place to post this question, but I'm new to AtariAge. Edit: I just wanted to make it clear that I'm not trying to advertise, I just trying to be open. Also, I wanted to do this mainly because there doesn't seem to be many, if any, after market 5200 controllers. Finally, if it is possible I wanted to add 2600 and 7800 controls because then it would almost be an all in one Atari controller (I would still be missing light gun features).
  10. ***S O L D*** Hello everyone! I didn't really wake up this morning thinking about getting rid of my Atari 5200. However, I did wake up trying to figure out a way to comfortably afford getting a Nintendo Gameboy Advance. Since my 5200 has been boxed up for years and not getting the love it deserves (and since I now have my childhood 7800 back and will concentrate on that for 8-Bit goodness), hopefully this will be a win-win for someone. What I have is a wonderfully working Atari 5200 4-Port system, complete in the box, with two controllers. I had one controller refurbished by Best, opting for their top of the line rebuild with the gold contacts, etc. The other controller is original, and I cannot remember if it is working or not (really, not an Ebay-seller type of comment!). For games I have the following, all in their boxes (I believe CIB....I don't remember if the manuals are there or not, but am fairly certain they are): Jungle Hunt, Pengo, Galaxian (NIB), Star Raiders, Choplifter, Pitfall (NIB) and Centipede. I'm looking for a CIB Nintendo Advance Platinum with a GameCube Link Cable and the following games: GameCube - Zelda: Four Swords, Pac-Man Vs.; GBA - Metroid Fusion. Let me know what you have! I'm actually pretty picky about the type of GBA I'd like....original Advance style and Platinum. But feel free to try me. I'm in no rush either, so if you think you have a line on something but not actually in your posession, take your time! EDIT: Also, feel free to make a cash offer as well....that always works too! EDIT #2: OK, people have been asking, so if cash then I think $100 if fair. If you do not, feel free to PM an offer to me directly, outside of this thread. Edit #3: I did some weighing and measurements this morning so that people could figure out potential shipping on this bad boy (always a concern when it comes to a 5200....I wonder why? ). After the games and packing materials are estimated in, figure 15 Lbs and dimensions of 30x20x10 inches. Also, when I unpacked the girl I re-discovered that both Pitfall and Galaxian are NIB, still shrinkwrapped and everything. So just an FYI on that.
  11. Who needs a Wico Command Control joystick for 5200 and/or the required Y-cable? I have two Wico sticks, one works perfectly and the other works but does not seem to want to auto-center after moving it in the “up” direction. Also have one (1) Y-cable for the Wico stick. Attached are pics of the stick that works perfectly. More available upon request. Willing to sell all three items together or would be happy to divide them up if the numbers make sense. Best offer gets them! Free shipping!
  12. I am trying to sell all of these games, but before I do I need to find out how much they are. If anybody can either help me with a link, or a toy appraiser in the Baltimore, Md., York, Pa. or Harrisburg, Pa. areas, I would appreciate it. I do not have a system to test if they work or not, but if they are worth it, I will buy one. They have not been played in around 35 years.
  13. Hello, I have had retro video game preservation no my mind recently, and am wondering how I could backup my atari 2600 and 5200 games with an eprom programmer. I'm fairly new to this kind of stuff, so if anyone could recommend an eprom programmer that is compatible with Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite, that would be awesome. Any answer is appreciated!

  15. Hi, looking for anyone who offers S-Video mod services on an Atari 5200.
  16. I was checking out various sports implementations on A8/5200. I was wondering what would be the best way to implement multiple teammate men on the hardware. Your goals would be to have more than 1 color per man, and to have minimal or no flickering. For example, I played around with RS Soccer - it is Antic C with horizontal scroll set. That's only 2 colors - green field and white lines. (!) Each man appears to be his own PLAYER, and the programmer has a kernel (not DLI's) which dynamically changes the colors of each man - head color,shirt,pants. At least I think that's how its done. There is barely if ever any flickering - it looks like the game controls it so that only 4 men are on the same vertical part of the screen (high, center, or low-field). If you decide to use a kernel for A8/5200 engine, then is it true that you can't use DLI's ? Because they 2 methods would be fighting each other during screen-draw time? I can't figure out RS Football, but it is in Antic E. It doesn't look like he is using hardware scrolling. I think he is blitting each man onto the screen, not using the PLAYERS for the team men at all. There is no flicker and every teammate can be on the same horizontal scanline area - no flickering at all. Does anybody know more on this game's use of the hardware? EDIT - added some pics from AtariMania to illustrate.
  17. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bo-cLsZfOlg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MiWr4Jha4p8 You're not going to believe this... but if you play Looney Tunes Hotel long enough and find a carrot behind any door, you'll hear what sounds like the Konami 4-note pause jingle. Also... I'm wondering who's going to finish programming LTH, considering it was just a prototype? ~Ben
  18. Okay so the other day I picked up a atari 5200 at a yard sale. As I was looking at it, it looked different then usual. It looks like it has a 4 port body but it has a 2 port operating system. I was wondering if anyone could help me identify it. And also is it rare. if anyone could help it would be appreciated. Thank you.
  19. Hello Everyone! This is my first blog post ever here on AtariAge, and I'm excited to be on here! Let me introduce myself. My name is Chase, and I am a seventeen year from Ohio. I have been playing and collecting Atari 2600 games for 3 years now and I have never felt more passionate and happy playing simple games compared to the high resolution, highly complicated games of today. The 2600 seems to pull me in with simplicity and the appeal of playing games that have shaped the game industry into how it is today. I have used my Atari 2600 (a four switch Woody) more than my Ps4, and I actually love my Atari more than my PlayStation. I want to start up a YouTube channel reviewing games and potentially talk to the people who programmed them. I hope to have a fun time on here and I can't wait to share my passion with others and hear stories from others who grew up with the console I love. I will mostly will be talking about the 2600 on this blog, mostly about games. Which ones I love, which ones I think are ok, and which ones I don't really like. I might also dabble in the 5200, 7800 and the Lynx and Jaguar. And one question to end this blog: Which Atari 2600 launch title is your favorite? Mine is Indy 500, followed by Surround.
  20. What you are about to see is the tip of the iceberg - this is ONLY part one - but if you've never seen an Intellivision or ColecoVision store kiosk before this will blow your freaking mind.
  21. From the album: Reflection Angle's High Scores

    My Miner 2049er High Score from Dec 2014.
  22. I just wanted to know if anyone has built an actual PCB replacement for the CX52 joysticks. Seems like that would be a better route to go than adding gold contacts to the various revisions of the Flex circuits. Sure, it would probably make it a wiring mess like the Colecovision standard controllers but I'd speculate it would still be doable and reliable...
  23. I will buy used Atari 5200 OEM (CX-52) controllers if they are not completely destroyed...I refurbish them and will pay $10 for each one (plus $3.65 shipping - 1st class US Mail) that doesn't work (only needs refurbishing, may include needing new rubber boot and hold-down ring). Preferably, joystick handle and directional control pots are still working, connection wire preferably still working OK, too. These extra parts cost more to refurbish the controller, so if any of these are defective (joystick pots, connection wire, etc.), I'll still purchase them if they are in a lot of 2 of more at a time for $7.50 each. Thanks!
