  1. This is probably the best documentary on the Amiga that I've ever seen (and I've seen quite a few). I only know a tiny bit of German, but even if you don't understand it, you can get the gist of things pretty easily. Plus, I think most of us know the main plot points in this story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HuAsF245G4Y&t=1s
  2. Hey everyone. Had a quick question for those of you familiar with Hardware because I really am not. i have a video issue with only certain homebrews and hacks. Original release 2600 games play fine, all 85 or so i own. It doesn't happen every time with the effected games, and when it does happen usually taking the game out and reinserting it once or up to 3 times will make the issue go away. could this be a power issue? Capacitors or something inside the system failing? Or simply just RF interference of some kind? I'm using a light sixer on a CRT through RF. I'll post a picture of one of the affected games and then a couple of pictures of regular games playing fine. thanks alot everyone.
  3. I have decided to make a rom hack instead of coding from scratch (since I have the programming talents of a peasant) It's a "Sonic-Themed" version of Bentley's Crystal Quest with revamped graphics & levels. Is there a way to insert new music to the game, let alone change POKEY sounds back to the crisp TIA? EDIT: Nevermind, rom itself got corrupted it wouldn't read with the editor...
  4. Hi all, I don't know whether this is oke to ask. But after (very) long thinking, I've decided to sell my Atari Falcon.. I haven't been using it enough to keep it really.. It looks and feels like new, is complete with the internal metal shield and speaker, the original 84 MB Connor harddrive is in the (bit noisy though) and a spare harddrive, 14 MB ram, software, switcher to connect the Falcon to the old ST displays, etc. I included a bunch of pictures of it working, and the whole package.. For some strange reason, some of the pictures are sideways and can always be reshot... Oh, it hasn't been recapped yet... I know (from the forum) that most people prefer it this way. The drawing tablet will go to Portugal, so is not included... Asking price: 1300 euros, or US$1450 (that should, according to my local exchange rate be just about equal). Shipping costs are separate extra. Of course depending on where it needs to be sent to... Of course it will be send with insurance and as properly packaged as I can manage If you have questions: don't hesitate to ask! I speak English and Dutch, I read and understand German as well, and a bit of Spanish and French... Bas.

  6. 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 -
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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)
  10. What are the different models that I could best buy? 400 - 8k of 16k machine and can be upgraded by adding extra memory in the slots of the machine. This was marketed as a gaming machine which it's design to an extend shows as it's a light weight 800. 800 - 8k to 48k machine and can be upgraded by adding extra memory in the slots of the machine. 600XL - 16k, easy to upgrade (if socketed) by popping in new ram chips and soldering a couple/few wires, depending on the method. 800XL - 64k, the most common - almost ALL software will work on a 64k XL...some 1990s (and onwards) demos and games require more ram. almost ALL Taiwan 800XLs are soldered - which makes upgrading harder. 50% of Hong Kong 800XLs have socketed ram. 1200XL - 64k, the easiest to upgrade, but easier to buy in the USA than europe. most ICs are socketed which makes installing a 256k wizztronics clone, Ultimate 1mb or the newer Antonia 4mb upgrades much easier. almost all 1200XLs will need a clear pic, UAV or similar upgarde to make video reasonable. 65XE - 64k, an XL with ST styling - many do not have the ECI port. 130XE - again, an XL with ST styling, but with 128k ram. 800XE - 64k, eastern european crossover from XL to XE range - some (about 30%) of these have a buggy GTIA chip, but if you strike lucky you get a nice "XL" with freddie chip and ECI. XEGS - 64k, a consolized 65xe. Why upgrade RAM? To either gain access to 130XE library and to more modern demo's, games, etc. Different RAM standards and why do they matter? Plain and simple comparability as some RAM upgrades have different memory adresses, which means some software might not run or not run correctly under a different standard. Can and is it worth it to upgrade my RAM by filling out empty RAM spots on the motherboard on my 65xe or 800xe? Yes, if you have those slots and if you don't want to go all out on the RAM or keep your machine like it was during the machines production life. Watch out for the faulty GTIA's though. You can check for those buy typing in : 10 GR. 9:D=1:FOR X=0 TO 79 20 COLOR C:C=C+D:IF C=15 OR C=0 THEN D=-D 30 PLOT X,0:DR. X,191 40 NEXT X 50 G. 50 And you should end up with something looking like this: or using my own computers as an example: http://imgur.com/gallery/bAOr0 This is how you can upgrade: Which RAM upgrade kits are still available? (mainly available for 800XL and later models, unless noted otherwise) Ultimate 1MB http://lotharek.pl/product.php?pid=67 ​wizztronics 256K http://www.best-electronics-ca.com/wizztronics%202_256.htm Rambo XL 256k https://www.bitsofthepast.com/?product=reimaged-rambo-xl-adapter 512k SRAM-Extension by Mega-hz: http://mega-hz.de/Angebote/512K/512k.html Due to some upgrades going through production runs of batches and than going out of production until another is announced these might not be available at the time of reading (You could always try and message the creator if they are available still or in the future): 512k SRAM-Extension by tf_hh: Write tf_hh a pm here on AtariAge Syscheck II by tf_hh: Write tf_hh a pm here on AtariAge (only works on 64k machines and higher) Ctirad 576XE http://atariage.com/forums/topic/232856-ram320xe576-order-thread/?hl=%20ctirad (No soldering required, up to 576k of RAM and please not "up to" as it requires you atari be on 128k of RAM before slotting it in to get that amount, otherwise you won't get 576k) Incognito Don't know where it is available (only for the 800) Antonia 4MB http://atariage.com/forums/topic/249405-new-4mb-ram-expansion/?hl=%20antonia (I assume there is a newer location that sells them that I'm not aware of) (please note, the Antonia has 2 different versions one for the XL line and the other for the XE line) (Please note I've excluded older upgrades and self build upgrades, like this, for simplicity reasons, otherwise this would become a very long list. But as wizztronic or Rambo diy build are most common; the chips needed for that are require a 41256. http://atariage.com/forums/topic/122470-ram-upgrade-applications/page-2?do=findComment&comment=1481893) If you have information to add, rectify or remove, please comment so I can change it. Resources: http://ataripodcast.libsyn.com/antic-episode-39-i-need-more-memoryFrom 1:05 Nir Dary talks about RAM upgrades which is a similar to this post. Great podcast overal but that segment is good if you want to know about memory upgrades without this wall of text.
  11. 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
  12. Why isn't "The Official Space Fury" listed in the guide?
  13. 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
  14. Hello, (this is my first post). I recently purchased a copy of Doom. I noticed it was slightly different than the photo posted on Ebay and I'm confident it's not the one in the photo. I'm okay with that, but I want to make sure it's a real game. The box seemed a little shinier than other Jaguar boxes and I'm afriad it's a reproductions. I spent about $160 (CAN) on it so I really want it to be 100% original. Is there anything I can do to make sure it's original? Also, I was not able to test out the cartridge because I had a water leak and had to box up all my consoles while they replace the carpet.
  15. I've recently been offered 3 2600 games; 'Dancing Plate', 'Sea Monster' & 'Space Tunnel' all of which I know very little about, and was hoping someone could give me some insight, as when searching i've found very little information. All games are in their boxes with manuals and appear to be in excellent condition. Image is attached. Would really appreciate anyone who could help shed some light on the rarity and value of these games. Thanks!
  16. 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
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. So, I have a bunch of Atari stuff for sale. I'm not sure as to what to price it (I'm not an Atari guy, I'm a Nintendo guy), and I'd like it to go to a Atari collector or someone who will put it to use/appreciate it. I'm not looking to make a killing. I just want a fair/going price for the stuff. It all works. The list consists of: Atari 520ST - Good shape - powers on/runs Atari 1040ST - Good shape - powers on/runs Atari 520ST - poor shape - powers on/runs 3.5 SF354 Atari 850 Atari 810 - 5.25 XM 301 410 Cassette Monitor SC1224 It's a rough list. I imagine most of you on here will know more about what I have. I have photos. Some of them are doubles. I want to make sure you can see the condition of the items. https://imgur.com/a/doqNz
  20. Some great classic TV commercials in this short video. Including Batman Returns. Which was a decent port for the handheld. Link: https://goo.gl/cKSmC4
  21. Just saw this a few moments ago. Has anyone seen this handheld or have any additional info? Looking at the images, there doesn't seem to be any color ('colour' for those across the Atlantic ) or difficulty switches on the handheld, nor is there a PAL/NTSC selection option (PAL only?). Supposedly it should be available November 2017 and can be pre-ordered now. http://www.funstockretro.co.uk/atari-retro-handheld The following IGN article mentions an 'analog' control stick (for paddle games????) http://www.ign.com/articles/2017/09/01/nintendo-switch-style-atari-2600-retro-handheld-console-revealed gbennett0321

  24. I have been buying and selling on eBay for about 8 years now. Lately I have been looking at purchasing various old games, but the other bidders are either scammers, have money to waste, or don't understand how much something is really worth.... The past few days various auctions have been high as hell, and crap like this is starting to piss me off because it is setting a higher standard for other sellers. Am I the only one that feels like eBay is starting to get a bit worthless? I feel craigslist is the only place inline that has decent deals nowadays.
  25. I've listed some homebrews / unreleased prototypes on ebay. 18 unique auctions, will combine shipping: http://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?_odkw=&_ssn=riffraffgames&_armrs=1&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2046732.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.X2600+hb.TRS0&_nkw=2600+hb&_sacat=0 Auctions have been completed - thank you very much to everyone who made bids!
