  1. New high score by Indcsion! Good going. http://atariage.com/forums/uploads/monthly_06_2019/post-67112-0-55770300-1560357998.jpg
  2. Cats vs, dogs, toilet paper over or under there are many epic choices but this one may be the most important one! So you have a collection and have tones of carts how do you organize / stack them and why is that the best way. Do you organize by rarity, alphabetical, cart type, publisher, color, date or some combination there of? Lets duke it out in an all out comment battle of which way is the right way.
  3. Hello, I am a new collector for Atari 2600 I love the history and innovation that occurred during the run of the console. I also love that there is a vibrant community and homebrew scene that is still contributing to the platform. I have not been collecting as long as most collectors so there are many things that you might know or tips that may come in handy to new collectors. What tips would you have liked to have had and what tips would you give to new collectors. What practices or items helped you what do you think would help others? Thank you. EDIT: I play every game I collect, playing the games is an important part of my collection.
  4. I have 2 atari 5200 2 port systems that need new storage doors. Email me at [email protected] if you have any. Will buy or trade (I got a lot of crap I'm selling)
  5. Dear All, I have just started writing Atari Jaguar reviews for Arcade Attack. Please enjoy my first review of Trevor McFur in the Crescent Galaxy. I will hopefully aim to add a lot more in the coming months: http://www.arcadeattack.co.uk/trevor-mcfur-jaguar/ Kind Regards Adrian
  6. Why isn't "The Official Space Fury" listed in the guide?
  7. Please enjoy a nice interview with the Atari legend Rob Fulop. Here he discusses his work on Missile Command, Demon Attack, Space Invaders and much more: http://www.arcadeattack.co.uk/rob-fulop/ Kind Regards @Arcade_Adriano
  8. Hello and welcome, I always thought the idea of a real life Atari gaming event was awesome. This system has quick, energetic games that get the blood flowing which is perfect for a social gathering. It's a bummer that this event is only one weekend, in one state. (Cali) And I'm not able to attend those meetups. However, I thought It would be fun to host an Atari Party of my own every week on my Twich Channel: AtariParty I've got around 150 games in my collection, and a supercharger to load games from my pc, so there will be lots of options. Game will be played on an ACTUAL CONSOLE Voting for the next game would be fun, too. I was wondering if this sounds like a good idea to anybody. I will be starting TOMORROW, Tuesday night around 6PM Central Time, and hopefully stream every other Tuesday, too! Hope to see some of you over at twitch.tv/atariparty -blade
  9. Hello everyone, I have a question regarding Atari800MacX emulator. There are games like Draconus and Blinky's Scary School that just work when changed the configuration to 130XE; but seems it's no use with others like Dropzone and Alleycat. Any idea on what to do in order to have all (or most) games working in this program? Regards, - Y -
  10. ***AUCTION NOW OVER!!! ITEM HAS SOLD!!!!*** Hi ATARI AGE forum! SUPER RARE and YOU'LL LIKELY NEVER SEE ANOTHER ONE OF THESE OFFERED - Take a moment to preview the link towards the middle of this post and read about an auction that I have going on for a genuine ATARI artifact. What I'm auctioning is a framed set of ATARI COLLECTOR PINS - FIRST EDITION - of which there were only ever 10 made - Hand numbered (this one is #2) - which were to be given out to ATARI's top executives, way back in 1983. My father, Don Osborne, was VP of marketing (thats him in my avatar) at the time these pins were released in April of 1983, so this is an original, personal item that's been in our family ever since. The only reason that I'm parting with it is because I have tons of this original ATARI stuff and it's only been sitting in a closet for 33 years. Seems a shame that some fan doesn't have this adorning their game room wall, so if you're interested, please let me know? DETAILS IN SHORT: Farmed set of the first 10, 1st EDITION, ATARI COLLECTOR PINS - Hand numbered set (this #2 of only 10) Here's the link to the eBay auction - NO LONGER AVAILABLE!!!!!!!! Thanks and please let me know if you have any questions concerning this auction? Matt Oz I can be reached at - NO LONGER VALID
  11. I've got an Atari 5200 motherboard to sell - either for parts or if someone thinks its issue is an easy one to fix. Essentially when I got my 5200 years ago, I noticed a fault where periodically all the controller ports would cease to detect a couple directions (I think left and down) for a random period of time. I was not terribly tech savvy at the time and just replaced the mobo, though it could simply just be a cold solder joint or a bad IC somewhere on the board, I don't know. If you want to give that a shot - or just harvest some of the components on the board - then here you go! This does NOT include the RF/power cable, which I reused for my existing board. I'll accept any offers I think that are fair.
  12. Hello all, now that I have pulled the atari out and started getting into the the 'scene' again. I wondered what I would want to do that would contribute to the community. I am not a great coder, I am not a hardware designer, I do love to do mods, and consider myself pretty good with a soldering iron. I am a mechanic, so I love to fix and tinker. I also love to play Roleplaying games.. but OLD SCHOOL pen and paper Roleplaying games. To that end I LOVED INFOCOM, even Adventure International.. I loved text adventures. I think the INFOCOM items were software I always lined up to buy when it came out. The only ones that if someone put a new one up on Ebay.. I would buy.. and open it.. and play it! I also know that INFOCOM created an engine of sorts for dealing with text input, and that later Synapse came out with BTZ (Better than Zork) text input engine. I think I would love to try my hand at writing a text adventure. IS there any information what happened to this software? IS it possible to reverse engineer it from a game? What is the legal status of that at this point? I did write my own on the level of AI text games, back in the day.. it was a 9 room dungeon adventure, and the vocabulary was about 24 words and the if/than tables I had to make in basic back then were crazy. and huge just for 9 locations with on average 5-7 actions possible in a given location. Anyway.. would love to hear about anything you might know.. can I use these "engines" to help me write my new "electronic novel" James
  13. I recently ordered this ac adapter off of ebay for my 2600. I was looking for an oem one, because those are the best to use. Anyways, I got this in the mail and I just haven't ever seen anything like this one before. The two things that I thought were odd was that first: It was was made in China. And second: the box has rounded edges. Do you guys know if this is oem, or have you ever seen any like this. (I don't have a camera so here's the ebay ad. It looks just like the picture on the box, except it has voltage specs etc. on the front too. It's also ended so just scroll down a little.) Thanks in advance! eBay Auction -- Item Number: 390458752431
  14. Hey guys, I've got here a nice Colecovision system I was looking to unload. As well as some more atari stuff that I'll post later. I was kind of looking to trade this stuff but i'm also taking offers since I don't have any price for this stuff in mind at the moment. The system works great and comes with all the hook ups necessary to play and 10 games which nearly all of them have amazing labels extremely glossy and in mint condition. (Except for Defender and Q-bert there not as nice!) See the pictures for the game titles! Take a look at the pictures down below here for a better look at what you would be getting. I've kind of been on the prowl lately for some PS2,Gamecube, and Dreamcast games maybe even some original xbox games. I'll post a list of specific titles i'm looking for, for various consoles and then just pm with whatever you got. Anyways here some pictures of the stuff! The system itself: http://i1060.photobu...78/IMG_0394.jpg http://i1060.photobu...78/IMG_0395.jpg http://i1060.photobu...78/IMG_0397.jpg The games! Labels are so glossy! http://i1060.photobu...78/IMG_0399.jpg http://i1060.photobu...78/IMG_0400.jpg http://i1060.photobu...78/IMG_0401.jpg http://i1060.photobu...78/IMG_0402.jpg http://i1060.photobu...78/IMG_0403.jpg That should be everything for now also will be posting some boxed 2600 games. I'm mainly looking for Gamecube,Dreamcast PS2 and Xbox games but i'm open to many other games from other systems! Check out my post on Nintendo Age theres a list of games I want there but again i'm open to more then what I have on my want list! Nintendo Age link: http://nintendoage.c...&threadid=63316
  15. Basically, 1 More Castle is a new features-based collaborative gaming website focused on retro gaming. Check it out at 1MoreCastle.com! To learn more about what we are all about, consider: Reading the 1 More Castle Manifesto, checking out the roster of weekly contributors, or just follow the Twitter account @1MoreCastle. This is something I am very excited about, and could say a lot more of, but I just wanted to let you know that we want to be your favorite retro gaming website -- and are serious about making that ambition a reality. Starting next week, our talented team will be providing exclusive, high-quality features to the tune of two updates every day, one in the morning and one in the evening. We would love to see you there. A note specifically for AtariAge regulars: I know that I am definitely not an active member of this community and more of a lurker, but I wanted to let you know that Atari systems are definitely within our coverage. One of our team members is actually going to be doing nothing but a weekly Atari 2600 review, and I am already trying to gather guest pieces related to other Atari consoles from knowledgeable retro gamers out there. We hope to be a website that caters to your tastes as well.
  16. I got one of these and it doesn't really seem legit. Have you guys ever seen one that looks like this? (I don't have a camera so here's the ebay ad. It looks about the same on the box, except it has voltage specs. etc.) I just question it because of the rounded edges.eBay Auction -- Item Number: 390458752431
  17. I am selling my CIB Demolition Harbie game for the atari 2600. This game is pretty rare and isn't seen much. It comes with everything, the cartridge, the box, the manual, and the insert. The box has some wear on the corners but is in pretty good condition. PM me with offers on this rare game and we can work out a deal. Let me know on this post if the picture didn't work, thanks.

  18. So there is a good deal on a 1200xl locally. $60 obo complete in the box along with a basic programming cart,rf cords,and the power supply. Issue is I'm only really interested in playing games on it and I have heard that it has compatibility issues. What do you think?
  19. Hello all! I recently picked up a ratty old 4-port 5200 lot off craigslist for cheap. It was a great deal if only for the 17 games (including James Bond), but I was hoping to get some life out of the console and controllers as well. So I got everything nice and cleaned up, hooked it all up, and turned it on. The switcher clicked and the power light on the console came on, but no screen output (not even the black screen). So through the process of elimination, I found out that the console and power supply works fine, but that the switcher box wasn't working. (I found out by using a known good switcher, and it came up perfect, with both display and sound clear as a bell.) Took apart the switcher box, had to reflow some cracked joints on both the RF and power supply jacks, then tried it again. That time, I was getting a display, but it was very staticky and had awful static noise coming out. See the picture below: Given how expensive 5200 switchers generally run, I would prefer to fix this one if possible, especially as it seems this is a simple interference issue that I hope shouldn't be too difficult to fix. Oh, and if it's relevant, this is the Switcher box that has the RF antenna screws, and not the one without them. As I mentioned, I've already gone through and reflowed the cracked/loose solder points, but I'm just not sure what to try next. I had considered unwiring the antenna screws altogether, but I wasn't sure if that might mess something up? Worst case scenario, I'll just do an A/V mod on the thing. But my first choice is to fix the Switcher box if at all possible. Thanks in advance for any help!

  21. I've been developing a skateboarding game for Atari 2600 with the help of bB. I've got it to a point where its playable and thought I'd share it with the community! I plan to add more stages, more tricks, title screen, menu, a two player mode and instructions on how to do each trick without an instruction manual. Instructions: Your character will automatically skate to the right and you can control what tricks he does with the joystick controller. Tricks: Kickflip: UP then RIGHT Heelflip: UP then LEFT Shuv-it: LEFT Shuv-it 360: RIGHT Flip: DOWN To land a trick you must be in air. If you hit the ground while the board is flipping you will crash. To jump (or ollie) hit the button and you will jump. I'll explain the logic behind the controls if it seems weird. The button is your back foot, so when you press it, you are pushing down the tail of your skateboard. The joystick is your front foot. For example when you do a kickflip on a skateboard you slide your front foot up the board and to the left to giving it the spin to flip. In game, you would press the button then move the joystick UP then RIGHT. Comments and criticism welcome! If you have any problems let me know. The .bin has been tested on Stella for Mac OS X 10.7.5 and Ubuntu 12.04 skateboarder.bin
  22. i got an atari 2600 recently at a thrift-store, then got a replacement cord. i cleaned the contacts repeatedly, and all i get is a black-screen when a game is inserted. sometimes a flash of the title screen, and without a game i get random stripes, sometimes buzzes, and sometimes black-screen. what do i do? its the wood-front model
  23. A while back I was trying to figure out a way to daisy chain both my sio2pc devices just because I was sick of disconnecting and reconnecting them. I do switch between the two depending on what im trying to do. I started a thread but never really got the answers I needed. Then a little while back at a thrift store I found something that gave me some inspiration. It's a belkin data switch from 1999 (good news its y2k compliant). It's just a parallel port switcher but I figured I could turn it into an sio switch for my sio2pc rs232 and my sio2pc usb. So I did. I just hooked up the switch at the sio end of both my sio2pc devices. Anyway I thought I'd show it off just cuz I think its pretty sweet. So here are some pics. Also I was wondering if anyone knew how to put an led on an sio2pc device using the 14c89 chip. Id kinda like to have a little led above each of the two inputs that gets all blinky when I'm transferring data. That would be really sweet.
  24. For the next 7 days on Ebay: eBay Auction -- Item Number: 281129752479
