  1. Repairing an Arcadia 2001 Controller I had problems with a fire button of the left Arcadia 2001 controller, not firing anymore. The Arcadia-controllers are very simple and were cheaply made. Even working, they are not great controllers. In the end nothing will help, but making complete new controllers of quality components, with real switches. I might do that sometime, if there should be some games I really like and want to play decently. Not sure yet. But for the beginning a repair should be enough. Simultaneously I'm using the opportunity to preserve that technology by uploading a few pictures. That's my left controller: Inside everything is glued together. By pulling carefully the parts can be separated. The mylar is quite corroded and a bit dirty: Showing the color scheme the plug: The wiring of the mylar itself, in case somebody wants to make a reproduction (or wonders, why pushing the "2"-key, also triggers the gun). Both red fire buttons are wired in parallel. They are just simple buttons, no rocker switches, no up and down. It is a 5x5 millimeters grid in the background. I cleaned the corrosion and without heavy rubbing, not only oxidation went off, but also the printed conducting traces. They really are not bound firmly with the plastic carrier. Look at the red circle. I cleaned away part of button and wire, by using alcohol, an ear pad and too much pressure and rubbing. Cleaning must be done extremely careful: For the first time I tried to repair with conducting silver, since soldering is impossible. I made a mask of transparent tape for painting the new trace. I learnt, painting one time is not enough: To lower electric resistance, the trace must be thicker. I painted three times. Narrow traces are bad, too. They have to be wide. Contact with the original traces must overlap as far as possible to make good contact. Left picture: painting a few times. Right picture: pulling off the tape. I also re-painted the conductive pad of the fire-button later on. I took no photo. Before reassembling I protected the new traces with transparent tape, since the silver color can't get inside the mylar's surface and gets scratched off quite easily. Reassembled the controller, checked it, working again! I can't predict, how long the new pad of the button will last, of course. Hopefully some time...
  2. The sprites are sticking on the SuperCharger... anyone have an idea what's different? BreaksOnSC.bin The code runs fine on Stella and on the Harmony but when I run it on the SuperCharger the sprites get stuck. I'm guessing there may be an "environment variable" (register) I'm not setting that is pre-configured when Stella or the Harmony runs a SuperCharger game?

    If you have a crappy MP3 player on hand you can just load it up with the Stella Gets A New Brain audio files (They're all over the internet), Plug in the Supercharger and it will actually read the files and play the games, and it's still much cheaper that buying S.G.A.N.B. or any of the other games physically, though I would recommend you buy some of them just for the box art alone.
  5. So I have an Arcadia 2001 with one game, cat trax, since I got it last year the thing will not display color on any of my crt televisions. It will display color on my 4k. Is there something I need to do on the crts? or is it not really compatible? I mean it's an arcadia, it's not the end of the world if it doesn't work on my crts, just thought I'd get some clarification on the issue. Thanks
  6. I have 3 Atari 2600 Supercharger tape game manuals for sale. The titles are "Killer Satellites", "Dragonstomper", and "Suicide Mission". Condition varies, so please see photos. Killer Satellites has a tiny discoloration. Suicide Mission has some creasing and a tiny tear or two on the front cover. Shipping within the continental US is $3.66. I'm asking $13 for the lot including the shipping charge, but I'm open to reasonable offers. Hoping to get these to someone who will appreciate them.
  7. Hello, I was wondering. When was the last time someone tried to secure the rights to any of the Starpath games? Bridgestone Multimedia Group, the current rights holder, has a mailing address and I was considering writing them a letter. My goal would be for them to freely release Dragonstomper under a GNU General Public License. You have to start somewhere. I figure getting a single title released might carry a higher chance of success than a full library release. I believe they could get some positive PR from gaming websites if they/we did a little groundwork and I might play this up. As Dragonstomper might be the first console RPG I believe it to be the most important Starpath game, but it is routinely overshadowed by The Official Frogger and Phaser Patrol, titles that Bridgestone is more likely to make money off of in the future via Atari compilations and the like. Having them keep these titles might make a solitary Dragonstomper release more likely. If this initial goal fails, the goal of my second letter would be for them to name a price to sell the rights, again for the single game. To the best of my knowledge they haven't made a penny off the Starpath rights the entire time they've owned them, so I feel that getting them to release one game for free as a good will gesture might not be that far fetched, and failing that, that the price for the rights to a single game might not be too steep. What do you guys think? Is it worth a shot? Are there any lawyers in the audience who could provide any insight as to the best phrasing and terminology for making a pitch like this, or what the rights might cost if the initial pitch fails? Also, do you think they have the source code for these games or would that more likely be held by the original programmer? Best wishes and thank you for your time.
  8. The Emerson Arcadia 2001 was a console that had a ton of clones (some by Emerson, some not) and a lot of these clones have different cartridge ports, same hardware though. I've tried to look at pictures to see what's compatible with what, but the pictures don't help much. Looking at these two consoles, the dust flap where the cart goes in appears to be the same size, but the pinout may be totally different. I'm looking to buy an Arcadia system, but the original, the Arcadia 2001, is just too pricey. I've seen some clones, however, go for a lot cheaper; So I'm trying to see if i can find out which clones are compatible with the American release of the Arcadia 2001, meaning they have the same cartridge pinout. Some examples of clones I would be interested in knowing about would be the Bandai Arcadia, Tryom Video Game Center, Ekusera, or any that aren't in the PAL format. If anyone has any info on this, I'd love to hear it!
