  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. For quite a while now, I have been looking for a ROM of the ATASCII Animation program that was for the Atari 800, "Atari Toons". I used every search engine I know of, trying to find a ROM of it, and I have also been to a ton of ROM sites as well, but I can't seem to get ahold of one. I also can't find any physical copies of it on eBay or Amazon. Can someone help me out?
  4. Hi, Just wondered if anyone would be interested in sealed or NOS Atari 2600 games. I will list below some of the gamed we have available... Sealed in Original Packaging Amidar Star Wars Empire Strikes Back Centipide E.T The Extra Terrestrial Spiderman Frogger New Old Stock Defender Basketball Miniature Golf Warlords Human Cannonball Hunt and Score Outlaw We have lots more so if you have any requests please don't hesitiate to ask!
  5. I dissected my Atari earlier, and I feel like it deserves a name. I was thinking Yolanda or Betty Sue. If anyone has any old fashioned names that would fit, that would be great. Also my Atari is a girl. Don't make fun of me for naming my console, she's pretty and she needs a name. xD I'm a girl too so trust me I'm not some old dude with a weird fetish. Here's a picture of her for a reference. THANK YOU.

    Titan Axe Beta

    I would like to give folks a try at my new game before the finishing touches are added. If you like my game please consider buying it when it comes out!! This was programmed from scratch, by me!! Here are the instructions.. Joystick = moves the character Hold action = Jump (in Jump let go of action to attack) Left + action = attack Right + action = attack Down + action = special attack Hold up + action = Use magic (uses power) In easy hold action on the Game Over screen to continue In Hard hold action to begin at an earlier point in the game (usually), or choose a different character On the title screen hold a direction to listen to one of the music tracks, five in total! (I made all the music, too) This game is one of my most loved creations and I hope you all enjoy it and consider purchasing it when/if it comes out at AtariAge Please don't take my code or modify it in any way!! I present.. Titan Axe Beta TitanAxeBeta.bin
  7. 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!
  8. 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?
  9. I was looking for the woman who worked with John Skruch when I worked for Atari and I found THIS! I hope this is not a repeat post, but this is AWESOME! http://www.digitpress.com/library/books/book_atari_lynx_hint_book.pdf I always loved the Zarlor Mercenary "Game of Life" egg and the Chips Challenge Mandelbrot generator. Notes: The RoadBlasters egg is wrong - you have to be holding a button when you drive into the tree. Toki eggs were unknown to Sunnyvale apparently (hehehehe).
  10. All I have left are the Journey Escape games. These first six Journey Escape games are still sealed and have some slight damage to the boxes but they are in good condition. $10 shipped each. They will be shipped in a small box for protection (no bubble mailers on these!) ONLY ONE LEFT! The next six Journey Escape games are also still sealed but they have a little more damage to the boxes (front and/or back). $7 shipped each. ALL SIX AVAILABLE The next two Journey Escape games are still sealed but as you can see they are pretty beat up. The one on the right has a decent looking front but something was hungry so it ate part of the box. $5 shipped for the box on the left and $4 shipped for the box on the right The next three Journey Escape games are not sealed but one of them is complete while one is missing the catalog. The one complete box is in pretty good condition, not much damage to the box just some normal wear and tear. The other box is missing the catalog and the box is a bit more beat up. $5 shipped for the CIB game and $4 shipped for the one that is missing the catalog. ALL CIB sold, the other one is still available. Thanks for looking!
  11. Okay, so I bought a 2600 Jr. with 41 games from a guy on Craigslist for $30. He said it worked the last time he played it, which was about 2 years ago. I took it home and plugged it in, and (surprise!) it didn't work. I've spent time googling all day today and yesterday, and can't find a solution to my problem. I've hooked it up to an old CRT, and when I turn it on I see the game and can hear the sound for about half of a second before it cuts to a black screen. I've tried using a different RCA-Coax hookup at a local retro store, still no good. Plus, the RCA-Coax it came with works on my NES. (Yes, for those wondering, it's a manual switch box) So on to solution 2. I tried cleaning the contacts via rubbing alcohol and q-tips on a cartridge and putting the game in and pulling it out several times. Still no good. I've tried multiple games, and I get the same thing every time. I'm going back to the retro store to try using a different power adapter tomorrow, the one that came with it doesn't warm up when plugged in, but the light on the console comes on. It's really hard to tell when the cover is on. Is this normal for the Jr.? Oh, I also cracked it open and aside from a few rust spots here and there, it looks to be in pretty good condition. All the soldering is solid and I can't really see anything wrong with it. I was just wondering if anyone could tell me if I'm wasting my time trying to fix it. I'm hoping it's not a chip problem, but I don't know much about the 2600 to tell.
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. I was wondering if anyone knows what is wrong when I tried to reset my atari 2600 with the reset switch on my Atari 2600 Jr it doesn't work but when I open up the console and jump the corresponding pin on the 6532 RIOT Chip I am able to reset and do the game select functions but If I plug in the ribbon cable into the motherboard that goes to the reset and game select buttons It doesn't do anything. I tried bridging it with wire but not effect the only thing It does when I do that it just stays in a constant reset loop like what would happen if you just held down the reset button. Any suggestions or idea would be much appreciated Thanks
  15. The poster for the upcoming Gameplay: The Story of the Videogame Revolution documentary film is now ready, and shown below. When the Website is ready, I'll post again, and also once distribution details for this year are finalized. The film, which is based on the Vintage Games series of books by me and Matt Barton (we're also writers and producers on the film), covers the history of videogames from the perspective of those who made it happen. Those interviewed include Nolan Bushnell, John Romero, Todd Howard, Daniel Murray, Darion Lowenstein, Eric Lindstrom, David Crane, and many, many more. The narrator is Cain Devore. The film also has a Facebook and Google+ presence, although Armchair Arcade is still a great place to find out new details (in fact, here's the same thing as a blog post there so you can see the PDF).
  16. Hello, I'm looking to expand my system collection, and would love to add an Atari 5200, Jaguar, Turborgrafx, and Colecovision! A 2600 Vader and 2600 Jr. would be nice too. I would prefer that they come complete with the power supply, RF cable, and at least 1 controller. However, if all you have is the system, I might still be interested if the price is right! Please let me know if you have any of these available. Thanks!!!
  17. Hello, I'm new to the forum. I recently completed this project. Built it from scratch. I've converted gutted arcade cabinets in the past, but I never did anything like this before. I think it turned out well. Please take a look and let me know what you think. Thanks!

  19. Hello everyone! I've got a question about an Atari 5200 I recently picked up on craigslist. It's a 4-port model and came with all of the appropriate cords and stuff. I took it home and hooked it up and I could not get it to send a signal to the television. Curiously, the red light does come on the console itself, so I believe it is getting power, but the television does not display a signal at all. I tried on a couple of different TVs and got the same results. Wiggling the cord doesn't help either. I read on another forum thread here that the switchbox itself makes a "clicking sound" when you power up the console. However, I didn't hear any sound when I powered mine up. It does, however, allow another console to pass through it via the antennae plug in, and does display that video signal. Anyone have any idea what it could be? I was assured by the previous owner that the console worked the last time he plugged it in. If it is indeed the switchbox, does anyone have a homemade one that I can buy from them? My solderng skills are not up to par with creating one from scratch. Thanks and I look forward to your responses!

  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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.
  25. So I might be buying this Atari 800XL and all these extras in the next few days. Problem is, I'm not sure what it's worth. I've sold computers like this in the past and they seem to vary in price tremendously which renders my information on them skewed. So what is all this worth? Just judging what you can see of course. I'll include the description the seller gave me as well. Please help! "Here is a pic of the system in the box. The box does have a rip that was taped. I would have to look to see what pieces I have but I am pretty sure I have the disc drive & the modem. This was mine when I was growing up.....just a few years ago " "Here is what I have a disc drive, the box that connects them, 2 joysticks & a printer. I also have the books that came with the disc drive & the computer & a book of programs. I remember spending HOURS typing those things in to watch a dot go across the screen. How times have changed!!!" She is thinking somewhere around the $80 mark, which I think is a good price, but how good exactly? Any information helps. Thanks!
