  1. Hi, I was just wondering how much a used and new Magnavox Odyssey 1 would cost?
  2. Hi, I'm in my late 40's now. I am kind of new here but, been reading for many years. I work in IT and do the home theater thing so I know A/V stuff very well. If you have been watching my posts over the last month or so, I have been trying to get all my classic consoles together, I am going to buy a 6' X 6' Ikea shelfing ( https://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/50360146/#/70301537) and MODIFY it so it can fit all these consoles, put a back on it(white back sheets) so you cant see through it (keep wires hidden as well). Route out a channel on the tops so I can put LED lights to light up each shelf with a central dimmer so I can adjust the brightness. My wife is not too crazy about this idea but, she knows it's GOING TO HAPPEN. Personally, I think it's going to look epic. The lay out of the cabinets will allow me to setup 20 classic consoles (bottom level will be used for storage, controllers, etc), with another shelfing unit that I use for current consoles. The TV in this room (the layout would not allow a 2nd tv, so no CRT) is a LG 65" 4K TV. I have about 20-25 classic consoles NOT including anything from the last 8 or so years (Wii is classic, WiiU is not... for example). I have been testing them ONE BY ONE, all controllers, games, etc and they are all in a large spreadsheet with serial numbers So, rattling my brain around this one. It's a VERY, very complex setup. The first part, get everything connected so it can be switched to use each system (I have a PRONTO remote that can do that). Then show/play on the TV with the best results. So, we have RF, Composite, S-video, component, AND HDMI. The other major issue I have noticed. Lower res stuff over HDMI deals with a level of HDMI lag. I have read that it's close to 50ms on some res on my TV (cant replace it). Part of the plan is to modify classic systems to get AT LEAST composite out of them and PREFER S-Video, run into a few RetroTink 2X to HDMI, HDMI swich to Scaller (push everything up to 4K to assure low lag) then to the TV. We also have range, so some controllers will need extensions and other classics with bult in controllers will need to have enough cable to pull close to seating with out showing cable on the shelf. The RetroTink does not do auto switching, or does it have remote control to change sources, so I will need a few of them, one for each type of source (one for S-video, One for Composite, one for Component) and run them into a HDMI switch. I AM in the US so going to RGB is not something I want to do. I was VERY, VERY lucky to find a S-video/compsite switcher that does 12 X2 (so 12 S-video/composite inputs and 2 outputs so I could do muli-source down the line) so this should cover MOST composite / S-video devices. A very expensive device from many years ago. The Questions I am really wondering... As there is possible HDMI lag, SHOULD I keep these analog (then you deal with analog issues), get them all to component video with a scaller, and keep them in analog. Or stay with HDMI ? People saying get rid of the TV and just get a CRT is not helping. A CRT cant happen. I am sure others have taken on this type of project, not sure if anyone has done it at this scale (setting up one cabinet to run 20 consoles) Any advice on this one, as I am looking for others who have tried this type of project, one of those "People who don't know history tend to repeat it" type things. Just really looking for some advice on this project ! Thanks in advance ! -Dave

  5. I realize that this is the wrong area to post this and if the admins move this I understand. This part of the forum just gets much more traffic than the events page. I was just wondering if anybody here went to the CGF last year and if they plan on going this year? Thanks:)

  9. I'd always wanted to tweak a few things in the score/info panel for this game. Changes: 1. Panel and playfield fonts 2. Power meter and extra men left graphics 3. Activision logo HERO.rom
  10. So apparently Namco museum is coming to the switch this summer: http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2017/04/namco_museum_is_coming_to_nintendo_switch_this_summer I have access to most of the games but it will be nice to play some more classic stuff on the Switch. Anyone know or care what the full lineup is?
  11. Vectrex Mail Plane cart recently purchased via the eBay listing 549642830355 will soon be posted as a ROM binary release on www.Vectrex.com. The game appears to be fully playable so far. Plays to the end. Plays to the Game Over after 5 crashes. Level Maps start differently. Controls work as expected. Definitely a better copy than one I currently have, and had made the ROM dump of a few years back. Please let me know if you find any issues after the posting. My thanks to Richard Hutchinson (www.Vectrex.biz) for supplying VecDump. VecDump provides an excellent method to retain the original cartridge state during data extraction. The the ROM is left attached to the board, and the shell is left intact as well during the process. An elegant solution for Vectrex specific game cartridge backups. Even more appreciated given that bit rot is a greater concern with older game carts using UV erasable EPROMS. These older carts (regular, fixes, and prototypes) are now well over the recommended 10 year interval for data refresh. Public Posting: December 1, 2013 on www.Vectrex.com. Please note the currently posted ROM (MailPlane.BIN) is the broken version from my dump of previous purchase. The new playable dump from the recent purchase will be named "Mail_Plane.BIN". My thanks to the two people who have already sent funds to assist in defraying my cost in acquiring the playable cart! Big hearts the both of you have!
  12. Hi, I am just learning my way around the 7800 scene. And I used to be more active in the Colecovision scene. But I had not enough time for so many different Consoles. My main systems are the C64 & Atari 2600 so it just seemed natural when I needed to replace my 2600 to get a 7800. I really think there's a lot of potential with the 7800 but as I am new I don't know how big the Homebrew base is that would support more homebrew projects. So I started this thread to put out there what I would like to see done. I really would like to see more classic 80's arcade ports like in the Colecovision scene. But I also would like to see some multiplayer strategy games like M.U.L.E, that I think was on the 5200 and some classic games like Archon, Mail order Monsters. Anyway this is just my humble attempt to get the conversation started between 7800 gamers & home brew developers. Thanks to all who contribute.

  14. It's a simple open and shut case, has anyone tried to come out with (even in prototype form) a playable (and graphically faithful) 2600 version of this great 1981 arcade classic from Taito. I have Qix for the 5200, and while there were two versions of Tempest that were made for the 2600 that never got released on cartridge form, including the original now-infamous blue-speedo patterned version, to go along with the Keithen Hayenga masterpiece we 5200 owners were so delightfully treated to, nobody ever tried their hand at developing let alone releasing a faithful-enough version of Qix for the 2600. Will someone, anyone, try and come up with a finished, cartridge-ready version of Qix? Even a working binary for us to include on our Harmony Encore SD card multicart will do us just fine. It should be just simple physics, the 2600 should not have any trouble being able to display it, although we know the qix on it will be flickering (it was also flickering on the 5200 version especially in later waves with two qixes) so we can deal with that easily
  15. Do you want to be a hero? The Quest for Glory series by Sierra was a classic adventure/role-playing series that fans world wide remember fondly. TheBigJB (Ex-Sierra employee) talks about all five games in the series and which ones are his favorite, and which are not. Anybody else remember this Sierra series fondly?
