  1. From the album: My Game Collection

    My Boxed Atari 1027 Printer, opened, but not used.
  2. I recently acquired a big lot of "new old stock" CompUSA mousepads in assorted colors and thought there might be some interest here. Whether you're a retro PC or retro Mac fan, CompUSA was a go-to store for a lot of us back in the 90s and early 2000s. All colors pictured are available and would be happy to supplement this stock picture for a photo or two of the exact mousepad you would receive. Asking $15 *including shipping* per mousepad OBO. Shoot me a PM and we'll go from there. Cheers.
  3. I am selling my Atari 400 computer and Atari 410 Cassette Writer. They can be seen here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Atari-400-Vintage-Computer-and-410-Cassette-Read-Writer-/221955724720?hash=item33ad9795b0:g:ITMAAOSwNphWXLvH -ArdsleyTank
  4. Many of us buy and sell consoles over the years, but some have stood the long test of time. So what consoles computers have you had since you were under 18 years of age? It's surprisingly few for me... Tell us about your childhood consoles that you still love and cherish. What are their stories? Computers: Mac--I have a Mac Classic that I acquired on the cheap when I was in high school. It is sadly not running currently and I believe it just needs new caps on the motherboard and PSU. Got this computer for free from a computer lab at my high school which was retiring it. PC--My high school HP is still in my parents basement. The computer itself is unremarkable but has a Voodoo 2 or 3 in it which I need to salvage for posterity for some point. I may have it framed, or use for a Windows 98' PC build. This was the "family computer" but I paid for the Voodoo 2 out of pocket with part time work. Consoles: NES--My original NES was sent to an authorized repair center to have the 72 pin connector replaced. I was pissed to realize they gave me another (more worn) console as a replacement!! Still...that was my early teens and I still have that NES toaster to this day. I've since defeated the 10-Nes chip and replaced the 72 pin connector at least one more time. It's currently in storage as my NES toploader is my go-to, but I will probably be hooking it up to my living room TV soon as I now have the space/capacity for it. The NES was a Christmas gift around 1990 or so. N64- My high school N64 (black launch model) was stolen at a party, but the translucent orange funtastic machine I replaced it with is still in my possession, bone stock with the Nintendo Ram Upgrade only, and is hooked up to the big flat screen at my parents for when I visit there. Paid for out of pocket with summer job money. Gamecube- My launch edition black gamecube was fried when my roomates in Germany (Army) plugged it directly into the wall instead of a transformer. I replaced it with a Platinum edition GameCube which I still have to this day and is currently in storage. It was my last purchase at 18 that qualifies. It will be coming out soon to keep my Wii U company in my gameroom, as the Wii U is moving downstairs having been replaced by my switch. Paid for with my earnings while in the military. Every Atari, Sega, Panasonic, Nec, Phillips, or Microsoft was acquired after, either new or at Play N' Trades. I wish I still had my childhood Super Nintendo but my parents never bought me one!! lol. I had to put my N64 on layaway as it was with "the bank of mom" Speaking of which, please do add fun stories of how you PAID for your consoles back in those years.
  5. Hi I got Atari 800. Can I download games directly from my computer through the SIO port of Atari? I converted .cas to .wav (out only mono) using cas2wav, and then through Foobar I want to load into Atari. If possible, which contacts should the SIO send a signal from audio card. Logically, at 3 (Data Input) and Ground. Is this possible and can I damage Atari?
  6. I have an Atari 410 that is probably in need of new motor to run the mechanics. I did check to see if any of the bands had come loose but they were all in place. There does seem to be power going into the unit because it sends a garbled signal to my XE computer but the mechanics simply do not move to run the tape. Atari 410 test.mpg
  7. I found a junk shop today and sitting near the door was a complete Coleco Adam computer system along with data cassettes, most of the manuals, and both matching controllers. Paid a little to get it as the guy is ePay savvy, but I have never found one complete with the printer/power supply before. Bad news is: it doesn't work. Just brings up trash on the TV screen and noise through the speaker. BUT, I have two more memory consoles that were given to me a few years ago. After some work and swapping the good cassette drive from the dead unit to one of my others, I now have: One functioning printer/power supply, 2 fully working memory consoles, two working keyboards, and two working controllers. Now, to start cleaning everything for pictures. (Filthy!) Oh, one other plus. They guy told me he has other 8-bit stuff stored in the basement of the building including Commodore, possibly Atari, and some TRS-80 stuff, which includes one possible new in box system. I told him I would be back to check those out soon.
  8. I'm forwarding this on behalf of the SRCS admin because I think some people here could find this interesting. Come one, come all, to the Seattle Retro-Computing Society's regular monthly meeting! It will be held Saturday, August 25th from 11:30 AM to 5:00 PM. Do you do any of the following with old computers? Will you be near Seattle on Saturday? + Use, collect, and/or restore them + Play games on them + Write programs for them + Develop new hardware for them + Help other people do any of the above If your answer was "yes," then the SRCS is for you! We exist so you can show off your awesome stuff, bounce ideas off of fellow enthusiasts, and be inspired by one another's achievements, plans and aspirations. No idea is too big or too small, and we're not picky about what flavor of vintage machine you prefer! Come on down and tell us about it! The meetings are graciously hosted by the Living Computer Museum, which is gradually fitting out a computer museum in Seattle's SODO neighborhood. There will be refreshments, a Buy-Sell-Free-Trade table, and enough table space & power to set up anything you may want to show off! For further details, please see our web page at http://www.seattleretrocomputing.com/ and our mailing list at http://groups.google...attle-retrocomp . Hope to see you there!

  9. It's basically a combo mess/mame emulator for which their are two variants (available from EMUCR.com, which is where i found out about them) the first variant of the combo mess/mame emulator is messuni (only just downloaded it, so haven't tried it yet) the second variant of the combo mess/mame emulator is UME (universal machine emulator) the latest 'svns/revisions' (for messuni and UME) are .146 (same as the indiv. mess/mame emulators)
  10. Saturday evening my neighbor came over to visit and brought over a few items his son wanted rid of because of moving to a smaller house. Two of those items were Atari 400 computers and the other was a Coleco Adam base. I have been trying to get an 400 for a while now and I finally got two for free! Tested them out, but neither wanted to work. One just shows either a back or green screen and that is it, the other would show a screen off and on and you could hear the speaker make the key press blips when you pressed a letter. I completely tore apart the worst on first and used it to get my bearings. Neat little critters. It still only shows a black or green screen. I fiddled with the second one and could get it to work if I wiggled the power/AV board around. So, I detatched it, sprayed some contact cleaner in the channel switch and the connector socked and plugged it back into place. Voila! Now I have a fully functional 400 computer! Looks like the keyboard pad was replaced sometime in this unit's life and I am surprised how sensitive it is for an old touchpad. Now I wonder if I can save the other one or make it into a parts machine? Not sure what is wrong with it. One thing I do know, I now need to find more cartridges!
  11. Almost 5 years later and I still remembered my log in info. Anyways I still don't know what this damn arcade machine is. Just a prototype? So that means someone built the cabinet, but what about the game board? Maybe pics will help....Not sure how to post it here but it's the only pic in my profile.

  13. MAME 0.218 It’s time for MAME 0.218, the first MAME release of 2020! We’ve added a couple of very interesting alternate versions of systems this month. One is a location test version of NMK’s GunNail, with different stage order, wider player shot patterns, a larger player hitbox, and lots of other differences from the final release. The other is The Last Apostle Puppetshow, an incredibly rare export version of Home Data’s Reikai Doushi. Also significant is a newer version Valadon Automation’s Super Bagman. There’s been enough progress made on Konami’s medal games for a number of them to be considered working, including Buttobi Striker, Dam Dam Boy, Korokoro Pensuke, Shuriken Boy and Yu-Gi-Oh Monster Capsule. Don’t expect too much in terms of gameplay though — they’re essentially gambling games for children. There are several major computer emulation advances in this release, in completely different areas. Possibly most exciting is the ability to install and run Windows NT on the MIPS Magnum R4000 “Jazz” workstation, with working networking. With the assistance of Ash Wolf, MAME now emulates the Psion Series 5mx PDA. Psion’s EPOC32 operating system is the direct ancestor of the Symbian operating system, that powered a generation of smartphones. IDE and SCSI hard disk support for Acorn 8-bit systems has been added, the latter being one of the components of the BBC Domesday Project system. In PC emulation, Windows 3.1 is now usable with S3 ViRGE accelerated 2D video drivers. F.Ulivi has contributed microcode-level emulation of the iSBC-202 floppy controller for the Intel Intellec MDS-II system, adding 8" floppy disk support. Of course there are plenty of other improvements and additions, including re-dumps of all the incorrectly dumped GameKing cartridges, disassemblers for PACE, WE32100 and “RipFire” 88000, better Geneve 9640 emulation, and plenty of working software list additions. You can get the source and 64-bit Windows binary packages from the download page (note that 32-bit Windows binaries and “zip-in-zip” source code are no longer supplied).
  14. I just recently came across a new Coleco Adam computer. But, since space is a dwindling commodity at my house, I was really just getting it to check it out, make sure it worked, and ultimately see if I could resell it someday. Well, as soon as I followed my intuition to allow for a cartridge to be slipped in {no manuals included unfortunately}, I was hooked. I immediately said, "Now I know why people collect these things." That's really all, in case it helps someone out there who is on the fence about collecting this system. I guess I will add as well that these old systems, plastic bags and styrofoam are all very amazing things. The box to this thing looked like it had been consumed by bugs for decades and/or laying in the edge of a pond or puddle for years {even the welcome letter they left in the printer looks to have been nibbled on from time to time}, but inside the contents are new like they day they should have been opened for Christmas {within reason of course}. I'll certainly save the foam. But, unless the Preservers of All Things ADAM speak up quickly, that box is going out with the garbage VERY soon. Also, any useful info, links etc. to get me started on my way to ADAM bliss {or invitations to secret ADAM societies} will be usefully appreciated.
  15. I was looking at the picture of the 7800 computer that never materialized. http://www.atarihq.com/museum/2678/7800key.html It looks to me to have been nothing more than a modified XL that attached through the joystick port to the 7800. I wish there was more info on it but creating such a device would be doable. A cartridge on the 7800 for direction and all the peripherals would hook to the attached computer. The computer would be nothing more than a fancy dumb terminal. IF one could create a cartridge for the 7800, this could be done with a current XL or XE, just turn off ANTIC as it would not be needed. Wish had more info on the thing.
  16. I've got it up on kickstarter leading towards the onespark event here in jacksonville, where it is also registered. check it out at www.theimagic.com thoughts and input welcome!

  18. Hello After cleaning and restoring my Atari 800, I made a slideshow : Enjoy ! Thanks for watching ! gameplayerspecial.com
  19. I recently purchased this item at a flea market. It's a cassette port of Donkey Kong for the Coleco Adam that appears to have been released in 1984. It comes packaged in a cardboard box designed to look like the original arcade cabinet of the game. After purchasing the item, I tried to do some research on it. It was one of three arcade games that were given ports to the Adam with boxes designed after the original arcade cabinets. I only found a few pictures of the box on Google and found no current or completed listings of the game on eBay. The closest thing I found on eBay was a Zaxxon game in the cabinet-style box the was listed for about $500. I wanted to see if anybody knew about the history of the game or how much it is worth.

  23. The interface for a good assembler is just like a text editor, with extra features added to make assembly easier. Take a look at this simulated screenshot, inspired by the Apple ][. This is a multiply routine for the Motorola 68000: There are several things that would make this more of an assembler than a word processor: Under the label "Multiply," there is a blue line stretching across the screen. You could toggle this on or off. Under this line can be shown information about the subroutine (e.g. input/output). Each line of code is indented automatically. The local labels have a period before them, and are not indented. There is a red "+" before the label. Clicking it changes it to a "-" and makes the code disappear. You could click the "-" to make the code reappear. Whether the code is folded or not, it's compiled when requested. When compiled, the branches with the ".s" extension will resolve to a ".b" (8-bit) or ".w" (16-bit) displacement, whichever is the shortest possible. If the extension is left off, assume it to be ".s". That way, you don't have to figure it out yourself. In this example, the screen is 480x360 pixels. Characters are 7 pixels across and 8 pixels down, just like on the Apple ][. In system RAM, this could be handled with one table telling which ASCII character to show (one byte per character), and another table to tell the background/foreground colors for each cell (in each byte, there are 4 bits for background color and 4 bits for background color). By default, the line under labels is enabled, tab width is 8 characters, lines after labels and code automatically indent, and code is not folded. When a mouse is used, the character that the mouse is pointing to is shown in a different color (for example, in the above screen, it would be shown as a white cell with a blue character). Characters would be stored as ASCII. The blue underline is toggled on/off with a control byte, and the tab width is also controlled using a certain byte. You could use any programming language you want, be it 6502, 68K, Z80, BASIC, etc. Regarding the keyboard, there could be additional keys based on what programming language you use. In addition to a regular ASCII keyboard, there could be attachments you could just snap on. For example, a 6502 keyboard attachment might have buttons labeled "LDA," "STA," "CLC," "SEC," "ADC," and "SBC." Next, I'll mention some enhancements you could make to the screen.
  24. I have used a lot of assemblers to program games. I have used Learn to Program BASIC, BasiEgaXorz, and EASy68K. I have also used Apple ][ Basic, C++, and others. There are many different assemblers out there, but what if there was a computer (or maybe an application) with a really sophisticated assembler that could be used for programming games, and other things? The goal is to make programming easier, faster, and more enjoyable. First, I'd like to mention all the essential things that any good assembler needs. Fast interface, as well as fast assembling. The ability to cleanly divide a ROM into sections. Code/data folding. The ability to test code as you write it. Storing colors, but showing them visually, rather than as numbers. Storing graphics for a game as data, and making it show like it would in the program. Compress graphics if necessary. If it's for a system that uses tiles for graphics, computing the mappings for them. Compress data in some way. Test code for length. Being able to make short/long branches automatically according to smallest possible file size. Making sure VBlank code starts and ends properly. For any routine, sort the local labels alphabetically or numerically. Add a number of labels to a ROM that follow a certain character pattern. Add/manage data structures. Lets you pick labels/variables from a list. Calculates a ROM checksum and/or adds code. Pads a ROM to a number of bytes that is a power of 2. I might add more of these. Over time, I will be adding blog posts regarding one or more of these elements. Keep in mind that any images posted in this blog are simulated. The Apple ][ is my inspiration for their look, since it was one of the first computers I grew up with.
