  1. While there is lot of discussion about Taiwanese carts, I was wondering about Taiwanese consoles. And since I did not find much information at AtariAge, I started searching the web (using Google translate). This seems to be an interesting forum, the linked post talks about quite number of Atari 2600 consoles which I have never seen before. And a similar post from another forum here. Given these two posts, there must be much more hidden behind that language wall.
  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
  3. From the album: My Consoles

    Brand New in its original box. Box and console S/N's match. Pro-Line Controllers as well as the Console still have their protective film covering
  4. I'm about to sell all my extra consoles and wanted to ask if there is a "sure fire" method to test the functionality of the system / all the keypad buttons. For example, I was checking one that seemed to work fine and then a game required to press the 9 button and that's how I found it didn't work properly. Any suggestions / recommendations will be appreciated. Thanks,
  5. I recently bought an upright arcade machine and I am working on selling off a bunch of excess stuff so that I can buy the parts I need. Please check out my auctions here... eBay Seller: bluec300 Thank you and I will be listing more video game and arcade stuff soon!

    I probably should stop getting hold of these now. On the plus side, I will never need to bother modding them with region switches I guess lol.
  7. Hello everyone, I just wanted to reach out and introduce myself here since I've been asked by some of the Amiga owners I have done services for about other systems as well. My Name is Paul Rezendes, and if you follow the Amiga scene you may know me fairly well. I do a lot of upgrades and repair work in my free time on classic systems, consoles, vintage home audio gear at times and several other projects. I am located in the USA in S. California. I haven't added much to my web site about non-Amiga related items just yet, but I do them quite often by word of mouth. If you're interested in getting recaps done on any of your machines please feel free to ask. The only catch is it may take some time to complete due to the nature of my full-time job. I work as an Engineering Tech and travel quite a bit, so this is done on my spare time. I usually get recaps back fast, but repairs can take quite a bit of time to diagnose and return. Just please be understanding of that and I can take good care of you. Here are some examples of some recent work I have done and some of the prices I charge. I've heard I am very reasonable in prices asked. My web site is located at http://www.acill.com(Its a work in progress and I hate the Shopify service so it may close and change soon) Typical cost for a recap on the A600 and A1200 is $58 and the A4000 is $68. I use Panasonic Hybrid caps only and this adds to the cost. I have done some for less when the owner insists on sending a cap kit from Amikit. In that case it usually is about $38. Replacing simm sockets is $25 each which includes the new socket. Battery circuit repairs on A4000 can run from $120 and up depending on the work involved. CD32 recaps using hybrid caps is about $80 depending on current price of the caps. This is because of the high nimber required. A4000T complete recap is $100 which includes the main board and three modules. Buster replace/upgrade is $38 Socket replace is also $38 each. That should give you a good idea. Here is also a list of recent work with some good quality pictures.

  9. Hey, I am an electronics engineer student and as my final career project I want to create a game console in an FPGA. It is going to be a 2D video game console, the maximun amount of colors is 256 and is going to be developed in a Spartan6. I want to know your thoughts or any question you have. And if you can, please fill in the survey.
