  1. I have this very rare, complete OSCAR device for sale. The box is open however the device itself and some of the contents are still in their factory shrink wrap. Please see the pictures I attached 8/6/2020 in the thread below. This is an interesting device that was designed to work with a special magazine and could optically scan the programs/software in the magazine printed in barcode form. The company failed and there were only a few (or one) issue of the magazine. Take a look at the pictures I posted on the linked topic (scroll to the bottom of page1, see my Aug 6, 2020 post). Also the topic tells a lot more about the device. Message me if you would be interested in purchasing this unique bit of 8bit history. Thanks!!
  2. Honestly it doesn't HAVE to be working, as long as it's in fair cosmetic condition. Looking for the XMM801 locally as there is no way I'll ever be paying shipping, especially with how little money I have being a jobless college student at the moment. I'm in no rush either, just thought I'd put this post out there incase anyone happened to be nearby with one!
  3. I've put up for sale a full set of official Atari Lynx pins belonging to the French 'Defi Lynx' promotion from 1991. All 35 pins in one single eBay listing, shipping worlwide from Spain: https://www.ebay.com/itm/254718049316
  4. Hi all, As I am lacking some inspiration (and time) to write for Atariteca these days, I was wondering if there are still some other blogs exclusively on Atari computers or consoles running out there. The only one that comes to my mind is Bill Lange's excellent Atari 8-bits Ads: https://atari8bitads.blogspot.com/ - Y -

  6. Hey everyone, Recently came into possession of the a one of a kind item, the original art for Paperboy on the Atari Lynx that used to hang in the old Atari office. Just got it re-framed with new acid free matting and UV glass. I've already had a couple of offers on this, and wanted to sanity check pricing on such a piece.
  7. Hello guys and girls After the bad news that the Fujiama 2020 can and will not take place this year, we just now got some very good news. Mr. V. has announced today that he's striving to make next years meeting, the Fujiama 2021, last a whole week again. A date hasn't been set yet. Location will probably be the same as ever, the Schützenhaus in 08485 Lengenfeld. Hope to see you all there next year. Mathy
  8. Hello, Following on from my previous post where I purchased a CX24 joystick which a few of you said was uncomfortable and recommended a few different types. I was just wondering if any of you have had any experience with the Suncom slik stick? Is it comfortable to use and responsive? And sturdy?
  9. Hello everyone, One of my light sixers has been suffering from awful static and strange noises when I turn it on. The voltage regulator, channel select switch, and power switch have been repaired/replaced, yet it still doesn't work. I was thinking that it may be improper tuning on the rf modulator. Unfortunately, all of my allen wrenches cannot fit the hole in the modulator (either they are too small or too big). Is there any specific size or brand I should use? Maybe I should replace the entire rf modulator instead? Thank you for responding, Matt S.
  10. Creating the Retro Gaming Experience To me, sitting infront of a flat screen TV using some emulator and a wireless controller didn't really provide me with the best Retro Gaming experience. When I first tried playing the old games I used to love on emulation, it just felt empty and stale. I wasn't sure why at first, then it hit me. When I was playing the games, I was looking for that nostalgic experience. I wanted to relive the memories of my youth. Unfortunately emulation wasn't sparking that nostalgic memory. I needed a true Retro Gaming experience. I learned then, there was a difference between just playing a retro game and actually experiencing retro gaming. So a few years ago I decided to create my own Retro Gaming experience by creating a retro gaming nook. This would take a lot of patience and hunting. Though I had plenty of Atari stuff in my collection, I still needed to hunt out the decor I needed for this retro nook. To sit down somewhere and feel like I went back in time. The act of playing on a old CRT TV, being restricted by cords. The earthy tones of the wood paneling. The simplistic decor of the late 70s/early 80s of my youth. To design something that took me back in time would offer the true experience. My first pick-up was this 1977 Sony Trinitron with matching TV Cart: So during the next year-and-a-half I combed eBay, Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, and local thrift stores. I not only needed the right decor, but I needed it cheap (I didn't really have much of a budget). Once I accumulated enough stuff to make my design reality, it was time to begin. I decided to dedicate a small corner of my garage for a retro corner. I started with the wood paneling. Luckily, many of the home improvement stores still carries wood paneling for very cheap. After getting the wood paneling up, it was only a matter of laying the carpet down and putting the pieces in the place. When all was said and done I only spent around $300 to complete this project. A lot of the cost savings came with patience. waiting to find the right stuff for the right price without overspending (For example, the TV and cart I was able to pick up for $30). Here was the end result. The final Retro Nook came out better than I imagined. Sitting in this corner playing my Atari, I almost thought I was back in 1983. Even the copper colored wing-back chair was the same chair we had a 1983 (my family never had the heart to get rid of it). People have to remember...... Back in the early 80s, most home decor were still from the 70s (unless they recently remodeled). Add a little stale tobacco smoke to the nook to complete the Retro Gaming experience😂. For the rest of the year I often enjoyed disappearing in my little gaming area to relive some of my nostalgic memories. At times my kids even joined me. It was great to show my children how "dad" played games when he was a little boy. During the next summer I decided to do a redesign of my retro corner. I wanted to make it a themed corner, as well as incorporate one of the old cabinet TVs that I have. I have always been a fan of playing original hardware on original hardware. So I have multiple CRT TVs that my children and myself use. I do have a few cabinet TVs and I had one in particular I wanted to use for my new "themed" retro corner. Here is a old cabinet TV I have in my bedroom. It's the TV I used most of the time before I designed my retro corner. Anyways, since I wanted to redesign my retro corner I decided to do it themed design. I decided to go with a Q*Bert theme which was one of my favorite Retro Gaming characters. It took a while to gather all the stuff I needed for the redesign. I already had an old 1970 zenith cabinet TV I wanted to use, but to find the right Q*Bert themed decor was a little challenging (more specifically the wall art). Then I found the perfect piece. A Q*Bert latch hook rug became available and I just had to have it. I was also able to acquire a orange wingback chair for $20. Here is the final design...... This Q*Bert themed design I was extremely happy with. I decided to get rid of the table to bring back the good ole days of having to sit on the floor to play. Coincidentally enough, I finished this design right around Halloween. I actually had a old early 80s Q*Bert costume (one of those old vinyl Collegeville costumes). My son decided to humor me and put the costume on so I could do a Halloween photo. I tried to use an aging filter to make the photo look a little less "high def". I'm not professional photographer so I did what I could with my cell phone, lol Here was the end result. MY 2020 DESIGN..... In 2020 I decided to shrink up the design a little. To make something simpler, and to design a area that would mimic a image you would see on a Atari Ad. I used a different TV for this one (1984 Zenith). Here is the photo of my daughter and myself playing in the setup. To bad we weren't dressed in early 80's attire or it might of passed as a Advertisement...lol All in all, creating a authentic Retro Gaming experience is relatively inexpensive and you only need a very small space. Playing these games takes me back to a simpler time. For some reason I find it more enjoyable playing on my retro setups then I do behind a computer screen or on some other type of emulation. The feel of the carpet, the act of inserting the cartridge, the smell of the TV tubes, the sight of the wood paneling, and being restricted to the limitations of technology all help contribute to the overall Retro Gaming experience. This is what I remember, and I find myself actually enjoying playing these old games more as I disappear in my time machine. COVID-19 The summer of 2020 I came across a old 1979 Sony Trinitron. I decided to do a very quick redesign to include that TV, as well as using my Space Invaders wall art I've been holding onto for a while. After I was done my children's school went to "virtual learning" due to the Coronavirus. My kids decided to turn my Retro Nook into a Virtual Learning Battle Station, (where old technology mixes with new technology..😂) I'll end with one last photo. My most recent setup that I may use if I decide to redesign my Retro Corner in the future. It's my 1976 Zeinth gaming station. It's been a blast having this little retro gaming corner. Hopefully someday I will be able to dedicate a entire room to the simplicity days before the internet. The days before the constant bombardment of social digital stress. Thank you for reading my blog

  12. Hi, I’m new here. Trying to get back into the Atari 2600 scene. Does anyone know a good source to buy cartridge shells (cases) so I can fix a few of my broken games? thanks!
  13. I’ve got a junior that turns on fine. You see the game, but it’s as if the signal is not fully lined up with the channel selected. I’ve tried different channels, gave it a cleaning, twisted the red thingie to see if that would help, asked politely but nothing’s made a difference. I also tried to find what’s always referred to as the chiclet looking film capacitor on earlier models but not having luck. Any experts know if there’s a specific that seems like an obvious fix?
  14. Part of the last phase of development for the The Promised End MH project is to dial in the difficulty to be as accessible as possible for most players while still making it challenging for experts. To help with that we wanted to hear from other players to see how far they get and what keeps them from progressing deeper into the original game. 1. (When playing from level 1 forward) What's the highest level you usually get to using factory default settings? 2. How far do you get when warping to higher levels like level 13+ for example? 3. Please describe what obstacles/enemies give you the most trouble and what level this is on. Thanks in advance for any feedback you can provide.
  15. New stuff up for sale! Seller mayhem_uk
  16. Hello everyone, I thought I should show my small collection, since I am fairly new to this website. As of today, I have four Atari 2600's manufactured under Atari itself (no Sears products, except for the Tele-games game center), the original famicom and super famicom, the original SNES, an original NES, and four old computers (Macintosh SE, Commodore VIC-20, and an Apple IIE). It seems that I have more hardware than software, which is a shame.
  17. Hi folks, I am new at AtariAge. Months ago, I've got an AV-modded european Atari 2600 Jr. (Rev. F board) in a great condition for cheap. However, here at my country (Brazil), PAL-B compatible TV sets are rare to find. The closest color system that is supported by most TVs is PAL-N (PAL variation used in Argentina and a few more countries in South America). I tried to replace the 4.433618 MHz XTAL with a 3.582056 MHz one, but that gave me no colors in any PAL-N compatible set. Also tried to replace the 3.546894 MHz one with a second 3.582056 MHz XTAL, but still gave me nothing but B&W picture. Is there something I can do to make this console output PAL-N? Both systems are 50 Hz and have the same resolution, so it should work somehow. Thanks a lot!
  18. For those of you with a Wii or Gamecube, I have unique controller options that enable you to have an authentic flight yoke to play Star Wars Arcade which is a bonus game in the Gamecube title, Star Wars Rebel Strike: Rogue Squadron III. With this flight yoke, you can also play many Gamecube flight games- and there's even a way to go wireless with the flight yoke. If you are a fan of Star Wars, this can really up the fun in these games. Check it out:
  19. I have an Atari 800, Commodore 64 and Atari 2600 all running through a 4 port Composite switch. The output of the 4 port switch connects to the back of the Commodore 1702 Chroma/Luma inputs. (I did not know it but these standard composite cables carry the Chroma / Luma signals just fine). Unfortunately the Atari 2600 suffers some slight interference though. I have the Atari 2600 s-video mod with an s-video to composite cable. When I plug that directly into the back of the 1702 the picture is perfect. When I run it through the switcher I get interference. I have tried many combinations but nothing seems to work unless the Atari is connected directly to the back of the 1702. Here is my idea. I am thinking that I need to get all signals s-video directly to the 1702 or find a better switch. What if I get something like this: https://www.amazon.com/RCA-CRF940-Modulator-Gold-Plated-Connectors/dp/B00008X5DD/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8#customerReviews Here is the back picture: Then I just run an s-video cable from the Atari 2600 into Input one. Run Atari 800 and Commodore 64 s-video cables into Input 2 and Input 3. The output would just be an s-video to composite that would go into the Chroma and Luma on the back of the Commodore 1702 monitor. Would this type of thing potentially eliminate the interference for the 2600? Thanks!
  20. I bought the cartridge mentioned above, but no information about it. I am looking for A) a BOX scan and B) the manual. Can somebody help me with it?
  21. Here's an interesting auction: Commodore 1311 Joysticks
  22. Hello everyone! First of all let me introduce a new, small company, called "Retro Venture". Our main goals are new accessories & new games for the whole range of Atari computers and consoles - made with love by the community for the community! Here is our first video spot: We bring back the good memories of the 80s & 90s! We are pleased to present you our first official product! This is the anti-dust cover designed for the Atari Jaguar console. Not only is it very aesthetic (looks like glass) it is also resistant to cracks, fractures and UV radiation. The Jaguar has never looked so beautiful! The biggest problem associated with the external port for the cartridge goes down in history. The cover also has port cutouts for JoyPads, as well as I/O on the back of the console. Thanks to this, there is no need for disconnecting the console, and the Jaguar itself looks EXTREMELY attractive! In addition, we took care with the design of the box that protects the lid from eventual damage, it is simply impossible. For this reason, the box can also serve as an additional Jaguar packaging (the console fits easily together with the cover - of course without the power supply). There's also a small surprise inside the box with every order! LONG LIVE THE JAGUAR! Price: 35 euro We would like to inform everyone interested that shipping abroad is 14 euros. Please add this amount to the price of the product you want. Make a transfer to the following PayPal account: [email protected] If possible please use the friends and family payment method (it'll save paying commission, that's friendly request, not mandatory).

Discounts are available on bulk or multiple orders, email for a price. OFFICIAL RETRO VENTURE PROFILE - CLICK ME !
  23. Afternoon all... so i recently found and decided to hook up my old supradrive to my atari st to look at some old files on there (i`m a working musician and used the ST extensively during the 80`s / 90`s... upon power up i heard a bit of a "crack" from within the casing !!!! ... so i opened her up and a couple of chips on what looks like the controller board were fried ... a quick look on the web meant that i could source the affected chips still and relatively cheaply (hurrah!) ...BUT..... one of the affected chips seems to be a custom programmed EPROM.. and i was wondering if anyone has or knows where to get the file i need to re-burn the new chip as my drive is useless without it .... alternatively can anyone suggest an alternate housing i could source so i can swap the actual HD over ... see piccy`s for the lowdown ... affected chips are 74HCT240N X 1 Easily available S7407N X 1 " " PAL16L8ANC X 1 " " CUSTOM EPROM.. Thanks for any advice / help offered.. steve
  24. Hi! i've been interested in getting an Atari ST lately, and have seen ones on ebay that have Television ports in the back, but just have atari 520St Badges and not Atari STm badges. would these still work with cables like https://www.ebay.com/itm/ATARI-ST-QUALITY-GOLD-RCA-PHONO-TV-AUDIO-VIDEO-CABLE-OFC-2M/390232521592?epid=2263100432&hash=item5adbabbb78:g:FOAAAOSw2s1UuoH4 ? on that note, would normal atari st's without a television port work with that cable? (such as Atari STF's, or just ST's without television ports) I live in the U.S. Also: If they have the television port but not the STm badge, does this mean the operating system is off of a floppy disk? Thank you!
