  3. In this video, just uploaded to Youtube, I show over $500 worth of Atari Homebrew gaming goodness for the 2600 VCS, 7800 ProSystem, and Jaguar. Even so I missed some, so I'll need to do another video. Technically some of these games are Homebrew ports of Arcade games, but there are many that are totally original as well. Most were purchased from Atari Age. I purposely left out the Custom Reproductions that I have ordered, as I'm saving them for an upcoming video. While the above video was uploading, I discovered that I now have a second supporter on Patreon. Supporters get exclusive content, which I plan on expanding what I offer as I go along. https://www.patreon.com/user?u=11084981
  4. Is this auction from a few weeks back to be believed? $985 + shipping?! It appears to be complete with all inserts and it's an A1 unit. It has the first-run (purple with checker box) manual, but the later iteration box. This just seems, I don't know, maybe $700 or so beyond its value, unless I'm missing something? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Rare-Vintage-Atari-7800-Electronic-Arcade-Video-Game-Console-System-NEW-IN-BOX-/192895450472?hash=item2ce976fd68%3Ag%3AzpkAAOSw8kFcuQjK&nma=true&si=wD26bMChdQY5vi21h40iB9LxpI8%253D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557
  5. A complete in box Atari 7800 console. I opened up the flaps and it's still in the original factory bags.
  6. I apologize for a great many things in advance of this post, but thank you for reading it if you do anyway. Many many moons ago I bought a Cuttle Cart II when they were being produced and there was a topic thread in the 7800 subsection of the AtariAge forums. It was pretty much everything I had ever dreamed of - a multicart for my 7800 so I could leave one cart in my console most of the time (because as we all know 7800 carts are a TIGHT FIT and wear out your hands and arms going in and out). The cart worked great for me for a long time, until one day while yanking it out of the cartridge slot to test a new cart I had just got, I slammed my hand and the cart into it into the wooden shelves of my setup for the system. OUCH. The MMC card reader at the top got dislodged and the card disappeared inside of the shell along with whatever held it in place. Now if this sounds like deja vu here's where I must apologize, because I asked about this before and somebody sent me the part I would need to repair it. Unfortunately I was a nervous nelly after all the money I spent getting the Cuttle Cart II and didn't want to crack open the shell and possibly make things worse. On top of that I had a very long bout of depression that went untreated, so I spent at least half a decade or more barely visiting the AA forums and seldom if ever posting. Things have greatly improved for me over the last two years thanks to therapy and medication, but despite many times cleaning up and reshuffling the deck for all the consoles and games I've collected (including a massive overhaul in the last week alone) I've never found the part I was sent by a kind user in these forums, and I can't even remember who that was/is. I do still have the Cuttle Cart II though, and I know my MMC is still rattling around inside it. So here's my stupid question... Could anybody fix this for me?
  7. 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!
  8. I've been dying to buy POKEY games for the 7800, but it's getting to be expensive and troublesome. Copies of Ballblazer for the 7800 are getting harder to find and this was to be expected. On eBay things are quite limited. Boxed copies can be had for about $30 to $50 dollars, but I'm not buying a mint or sealed boxed copy just to get the cartridge. Loose copies, well I'm only finding the ones with the red end labels, and they tend to go for $50 to $80. I sometimes see loose PAL cartridges for around $25, but I don't even know if they are compatible. POKEY chips can be found in a 5200 console, but then I'd have to buy one, pay to have it shipped to me, destroy the console to get at the POKEY chip, remove the POKEY chip (which I don't even know how to do), and then ship it to Atari Age. POKEY chips can be found in some Atari Arcade games, but no way am I going that route either! The cheapest option that I can find is to buy just a board with a POKEY chip on it. Cost $30. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Ballblazer-Atari-7800-Pokey/152564067928?hash=item238586ee58:g:RJ8AAOSwjKtccao9 The one POKEY version that I'd really like to own is Bentley Bear's Crystal Quest. Cost? $52.25. So if I could go with the board that I found on eBay, which includes free shipping, my cost would be $82.25 not counting the shipping charge from Atari Age, and assuming that I can have this board shipped directly to Atari Age. And that's the CHEAPEST option! If these boards like the one that I've linked to are common, and I have no idea if they are, perhaps Atari Age could buy them in bulk. The seller seems to be offering that option (for $25). If Atari Age passed that expense along I'd be willing to do it. Actually, I'd also be willing to buy the board, have it shipped directly to Atari Age, and have them use that. But I am disabled now so my options are limited.
  9. Hello, I was wondering. I can hire a joystick builder to wire a joystick. I’m just trying to find out what is the better route. My fight stick his separate wires for each Joystick Direction, button ground, voltage and a miscellaneous "other wire", like what the Xbox 360 needs. and then gets sent into a Brook fight board. (It actually has 11 buttons and 4 directions, it’s easier to go down than up.) Thanks to the fact that the brook stick is easily removable with a DB25, I was wondering if either the Atari 7800 or the 2600 Booster grip is as simple as wiring discrete buttons to pins, meaning a pin representing a direction, button, ground or voltage is straight wired from the DB25 discrete to a pin on the DB9. I know the basic 2600, Astrocade, Master System, and Neo Geo are simple one pin = one function hookups. I understand I could have a straight-wire hookup to do those systems. I understand systems as early Intellivision and Colecovision had "coded" joystick signals, so those are hard without PCB knowledge unless you hack an existing PCB. The 7800 and the 2600 booster grip are two weird beasts. Atari 7800 has buttons that split to 2 pins and one pin that is a combination of 2 buttons. Is that as easy as a simple wiring job with no coding and no PCB, or do you need some sort of "OR circuit" to make the 2600 button work. I don’t know if an Or circuit is as simple as wiring it, or if it needs intelligence. My joystick guy is charging $2 a 2-way pin hookup. With 4 directions, 2 buttons, a ground and a voltage, that should come to $16. That would be cheaper than a Edladdin Genesis->7800 adapter, and I don’t have to split up my shipment between myself for the 7800 and my joystick maker for the Colecovision. But I don’t know if uilding a discrete 7800 adpater would work. Also the 2600 booster grip has digital buttons actuating an analog paddle signal. Is that a simple wiring function too, or does THAT need some circuitry for it to work to convert a joystick signa to a paddle (assuming they are different I hear it’s an analog voltage between zero electricity and the maximum allowed electricity, [i won’t pretend to throw around words I don’t understand] so if it’s as simple as actuating a maximum, it’s just like taking the dimmer switch away from a circuit: it becomes a simple on/off circuit.) I also notice the pins are similar in a 2600 booster grip and a 7800. Can one device work for both? Or is it better to make 2 separate ones.
  10. I fairly recently got my hands on a 7800 intended for the scrap heap. The power supply plug was in somewhat bad shape and the power jack was broken off. When I opened it up I discovered that the soldering points for the power jack was almost completely ruined, as you can see below. However with some careful consideration I managed to find a work around, fitted a new power plug and jack, and got it to power on. However I got nothing but a black screen and some humming/buzzing. Also, I found it strange that the plug wasn't a standard RF jack, but rather the same type found for connecting a monitor to an Atari ST computer. Curious that I am, I decided to open it up further and well, as you can see in the second picture, someone has been a busy little bugger. It has certainly been heavily modified during its lifetime. Still, this brings me no closer to a solution. Anyone know what might be wrong with the system or is it a lost cause?
  11. I want to know which game consoles were the best competitors of the Atari 2600,5200 and 7800

  13. 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.
  14. Add this one to your NIB 7800 collection! Looking for $100 shipped but will consider all reasonable offers. I could use some cash after dropping wayyyy too much on a huge XEGS bundle and associated XE game purchases... I took pictures from all sides. I know the pics are rotated incorrectly - you have the AtariAge uploaded to thank for that! When is the new forum version getting installed, again? Haha...There is some box crushing present, as is common with sealed games after all these years. There are a few locations where the seal has a couple of holes/breaks, most notably on the bottom of the box (near the UPC code and also on the left side, opposite the UPC code (same bottom side). I'm assuming it's NTSC since I'm in the United States but there's no way to tell with sealed games, and I'm not about to open it up and test it! There are three cart-only listings right now on eBay that will set you back between $62-70, so I figured $100 would be pretty fair. The last NIB on eBay sold a couple months back for $120. Hit me up with interest or q's.
  15. Someone thought it would be a good idea to run two concurrent cart-only Commando (7800) listings. Talk about a gift to bidders! Here are the two listings. Not mine (obviously): https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F183339172198 https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F183339173240
  16. Shipping is pricey, but came across this the other day and have been following it. Four hours left. The Wico trackballs (for Atari 2600 games, I believe) don't seem to be all that common (there aren't any Atari-compatible ones on eBay right now separate from this bundle). Good luck to whoever might be interested. I'm not going to bid I don't think. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F183312052926
  17. As far as I can tell, these just popped up last night or this morning. The prices aren't great, but at least Best Offer is an option. For anyone who has been searching far and wide for these elusive titles as you seek to complete your 7800 collection... Ikari Warriors: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F253739510979 Rampage: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F253739098110 Fatal Run: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F253739066969 Impossible Mission: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F253739582610 Double Dragon: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F253739127946 Midnight Mutants: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F253739543624 They also happen to all be from the same seller, so I'm sure you could get some shipping savings by purchasing multiple games from him. I have no connection to this seller whatsoever, just passing along these recent finds. Cheers.
  18. Just came across this eBay listing and thought I would share. I already have this game CIB, but for those seeking it out, this is the best price I have seen for it in quite some time. It often goes for $100 CIB. This is only $50 OBO! https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F223019397235
  19. Was curious what 7800s were going for these days and find it hard to believe this bundle sold today for $180, albeit with free shipping (yippee?)...the box is beat to shit and it is untested. Incredible! Think it is the homebrew scene fueling these insane prices? https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F283015728268
  20. Anybody have Pete Rose Baseball CIB for the 7800 that they are willing to sell? In actuality, all I really need is the box, as I already have the game and manual and currently am using a 2600 box but am ready to upgrade to the real thing (which is also larger in size). eBay has one in awful condition right now for $50 and a sealed copy for $100. Reastically, I would be willing to pay somewhere in between those two. Does not have to be sealed, and like I said, I would also purchase just the box, if that is an option. Thanks!
  21. I've got some CIB games, CIB homebrews and sealed games on eBay if anyone is interested. https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=&_in_kw=1&_ex_kw=&_sacat=0&_udlo=&_udhi=&_ftrt=901&_ftrv=1&_sabdlo=&_sabdhi=&_samilow=&_samihi=&_sadis=15&_stpos=98020-4507&_sargn=-1%26saslc%3D1&_salic=1&_fss=1&_fsradio=%26LH_SpecificSeller%3D1&_saslop=1&_sasl=danagret&_sop=1&_dmd=1&_ipg=100 Colecovision CIB homebrews: Ninja Princess Pooyan Remember the Flag Roller Ball Sudoku Traffic Jam Zombie Incident Intellivision CIB games and repro boxes: Game Factory Hotel Bunny Triple Challenge Truckin' Worm Whomper Ms. Pac-Man box Rocky Battles the Champ box Action Force (GI Joe) box Strawberry Shortcake box Deadly Dogs box Atari 2600 sealed games and CIB homebrews Crack'ed Crazy Balloon BMX Air Master (sealed) Bump 'n' Jump (sealed) Burgertime (sealed) Froggo games (sealed) Atari 7800 sealed games Ace of Aces Fight Night Food Fight Mat Mania Challenge Super Huey UH-IX Tower Toppler Winter Games Astrocade sealed games Amazing Maze/Tic-Tac-Toe Bally Pin Dog Patch End this weekend - thanks for looking and PM or eBay message with questions!
