  1. http://classicgamefest.com/ Anyone planning on going? I will make it, would love to get a table, but I need to share one with someone(s) because I am working and I can't make it to the entire days. PM if interested!
  2. 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!!!
  3. 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!

  5. 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).
  6. Hello Atari owners and modders. I'm trying to add an audio / composite output on my "new" atari 2600 (NTSC 4 switch), but I can't obtain any image... The console worked yesterday with RF output, but with no sound and a really weird/dirty b&w image. That's why I decided to add an A/V mod to permanently solve the problem. I think I choose the cheaper solution: 2 resistances and 1 transistor, similar to the easier-7800-composite-video-mod My circuit is the same as the solution proposed by brighty83 for a PAL version here (down of the page):http://retro.mmgn.co...ari-2600-AV-Mod I found the same cicuit on ebay, sellers detail the process on their installation guides for NTSC versions: http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&pub=5574883395&toolid=10001&campid=5336500554&customid=&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fitm%2FAtari-2600-7800-Composite-Video-Mod-Upgrade-Kit-DIY-%2F300592126324 (see Installation Guides for atari 2600 4 switch) or http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&pub=5574883395&toolid=10001&campid=5336500554&customid=&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fcgi.ebay.fr%2FAtari-2600-A-V-Composite-Video-Mod-Kit-NTSC-PAL-DIY-%2F181042624250%3Fpt%3DLH_DefaultDomain_0%26hash%3Ditem2a26fb36fa installation guide: http://www.filedropp...stallationguide (page 10 for NTSC 4 switch) Here is the circuit (sorry for the poor image quality): Video out and GND ---> Video RCA Audio out and GND ---> Audio RCA As mentionned on guides for NTSC 4 switch, I removed the RF box, Q202 and R209: The sound works well, but no images, it's so sad... I don't know what to do, and I'm dying about playing with it, in good conditions I mean. Some of you tried this mod? any idea ? Fujisama
  7. 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.
  8. 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!
  9. Would there be any possible way to save files in cassette format on any Atari 8-bit computer emulator? I looked at many various emulators such as Altirra, A8E, Atari800win plus, etc, and I can't seem to find any option on any of those for what I'm trying to do.
  10. 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).
  11. Hey everyone, I am new to these forums, I have a heavy sixer console, complete with grey ac adapter, 1977 joysticks (no hex discs), 1977 paddles and a few other things. Here are some pictures:
  12. Hey, I want to trade my special video game TILT magazines. It was the first French magazine for videogame. It started in September 1982 (Mattel introduced the Intellivision in the same period in France). The magazine disappeared in 1994. I'm going to trade 20 numbers and only the most collectable (very difficult to find especially the first numbers !) You'll find most of test for Intellivision, Atari, Colecovision, Vectrex and more games in. The 5 first are really collectionable (last year, the first one was seen once on eBay and was sold at 150 euros... The next 4 was sold around 40 to 50 euros each, the others are cheaper (but not cheap ). N°1 Septembre-Octobre 1982 to N°10 Mars 1984 N°14 Juillet 1984 to N°20 Avril 1985 N°22 Juin 1985 to N°25 Octobre 1985 The magazines are in a very good condition ! I'm looking for Intellivision CIB games : Learning Fun 1 and 2 SMB Spiker Safecracker Tropical Trouble Pole Position Commando Sewer Sam
  13. 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!
  14. Hello, upon the advice of a friend I decided to ask here to see if you guys could please help me with a problem I'm having. I have an Atari Jaguar and a few games all of which seem to run correctly. I decided to play I-WAR yesterday, and instead of hearing the awesome techno MOD music that plays at the logo screen I was greeted with silence. At first I thought I might have hit a number key by mistake so I pressed all of those, still nothing. So I took out the cartridge and cleaned the contacts with a Kleenex and blew out the Jaguar's cart port with an air duster. Still no music. All of the sound effects play correctly, just the music is missing, every song. The cartridge never has any loading problems like the red screen of death or anything. This happens every time I put the game in and has NEVER happened before until yesterday (it used to play music just fine, loved it's soundtrack! :3 ) All my other games (Tempest 2000, Wolf 3D, Aliens Vs Predator, Kasumi Ninja, Iron Soldier, Doom) play correctly with music, so it's just this game. Any ideas? I'm COMPLETELY baffled. Thanks for reading this, I really appreciate it. :3 oh I should probably specify it'ts a US Jaguar and I-War cart, and it's running through RF (not that third party s-video cable...)
  15. My friend and I have an idea for a ROM hack of pole position and are trying to use the source dumped here by Curt Vendel but haven't gotten anywhere in a while with it. I was wondering if anyone has any insight as to how to get it compiled, what compiler to use or possibly another source dump that's compatible with DASM without a complete re-write. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated and you will be noted on the credits of the hack and you will get a gold star for being generally a good person. Thanks, -M
  16. I am currently living in a small apartment, and my girlfriend will be moving in soon. In the interests of maximizing space, I am considering putting my numberous systems into storage and getting a nice emulation setup hooked up to my new TV. How anyone here ever done this, and did it work out for you? Now, what kind of a computer is needed for good emulation? I know next to nothing about hardware, and won't be building a machine. I'll just go to Best Buy when my tax refund comes back and buy a PC. Ideally, I would like to run stuff up to the Dreamcast era smoothly, if that can be done. If not, I'll settle for a machine that runs the classics. Any recommendations on an out-of-the-box machine that does the job? Also, any suggestions for controllers? Also, has anyone here had experience with a first-gen hacked Xbox? Thanks!

  18. 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!
  19. I've been working on a new (well, it's been going on a while) project to bring a new game to the Atari. It is currently called "Escape the Night Garden" and can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYArkNuj0L8 I would like to thank Miker for the music, I came across this track and just loved it, so I asked him if I could use it and he was happy to allow me to use the track. Thanks Miker! Please don't be too harsh, it's my first attempt at programming a full game in MADS. A lot of work still needs to be done to get it into a working game. It'll basically be a game where you have to get out of the maze (night garden in this case) by flicking switches in the right order and avoiding enemies (when they're fully programmed), I just need to get past a programming problem with MADS structs. I'll better the graphics later, add a title screen, DLI's for more colour, extra levels, sprite animation, possibly more music if memory allows, additional fonts for more varied graphics and add a status bar at the bottom. At the moment you can also walk through walls, obviously that needs to be sorted. Levels (24 screens) are compressed down to around 450 bytes. That'll take up more when colour schemes, disappearing doors and enemies are implemented.
  20. Hello guys!! I thought I'd make the official Atari 2600 4 switch woody serial number thread. There is a serial number thread for the Heavy Sixer, Light Sixer, Vader, and Junior models. After extensive searching, there is none for the CX-2600A 4 switch woodies manufactuted from 1980-1982. Share your 4 switch woody consoles and their serial numbers. I'll lead off with mine. And the one out of my 5 different 2600's that get the most play time. My official game room system.

  21. A much needed distraction today.
  22. I am a new user of this fantastic site. I am currently obsessed with my new Atari 2600 which is a Sears Telegames run. I am so excited to have this passed on to me from my father in law.

    The machine that got me into Ataris, I upgraded from the TI-99/4a to this very Atari 600XL. Later I added the memory module to take it to 64K and then the 1050 disk drive and was hooked.
