  1. I would like to start a thread about the current state of paddles, in the world of HD playing. Here is what I know about the state of paddles as of Nov 3, 2018: I would be really great if someone would report on the paddle functionality of the Retron77. AtGames manufactured paddles, wired: AtGames sells Atari replica paddles on their web site for $29.95 plus shipping. I own these paddles, they feel great and work perfectly with the 2600 and Flashback 8. As per the AtGAmes website they are compatible with many other flashbacks, but not the Flashback 9. AtGames manufactured paddles, for Atari Bast vol 3, wireless: These paddles will only sync to the enclosed dongle. They feel and work very nice. Unfortunately this dongle game system has many problems. I owned one, then returned it to Walmart. Problems: Sound: sometimes there would be no sound Sound: when the sound worked is was horrible. Pong with bad sound is not worth playing. Play: this system lacks difficulty left, and difficulty right switches. According to the AtGamesBlast web site the controller has difficulty switches, but in truth it does not! Game selection: there are only 13 cartridges emulated on the dongle, not 20 as advertised. 3 and 4 player games, according to my correspondence with AtGames if you want to play simultaneous 3 or 4 player games (black jack, video Olympics, warlords) a special set of paddles, made by AtGames, must be used, unfortunately AtGames sells no such paddles. Flashback 8 Pros: Paddle games on this system work great, no lag, nice game selection Flashback 8 works with original Atari paddles and the AtGames paddles Cons: The Flashback 8 system can not play cartridges or additional games via SD card slot. Flashback 9 (Paddles will not work with this system) Problems: According to a Youtube video posted by, "John Hancock" paddles do not work with this system. John Hancock states in this video that AtGames will release special compatible paddles. There is no mention of this on the AtGames website or in the intructions included with the Flashback 9 system. Flashback 9 Gold (Paddles will not work with this system) This system has a dedicated paddle games menu! I own this system here are the Problems I found: Original Atari paddles do not work on this system. AtGames Atari replica paddles do not work on this system. The enclosed paper instructions simply state, "Please plug your paddle controllers into each controller port on the game console." This does not work. SD card paddle games do not work Before playing a paddle game there are instructions on the screen to plug the paddles into the console after the game starts, still the paddles do not work. This is a big disappointment, the paddle games worked great on the Flashback 8. Hopefully AtGames will release download to fix this problem. There is no mention of special compatible paddles on the AtGames website. There is no mention of special compatible paddles on the Flashback 9 Gold instruction sheet.
  2. The Sony PS3 was home to great High Definition Remasters based on classic PS2 franchises. Here are some of my favorites from the game collection along with what is new and special about each. Games Shown: Metal Gear Solid HD Collection Ico & Shadow of the Colossus Collection Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster God of War Collection (GW1 & 2) God of War: Origins Collection (Chains of Olympus & Sparta) Jak & Daxter Collection The Sly Collection Silent Hill HD Collection Zone of The Enders HD Collection What game or series never got the HD treatment that you wish would get remastered?
  3. It's been pointed out to me recently that the TI Guru's have been designing cartridges that are hitting the functional maximum capacity for a standard TI case. Basically, you just cannot cram any more in there. So, where do we go from here? I see different paths we could take: High Density SMT While this method may not be for the average hobbyist, some of you have the technical knowledge and capacity to pull this off. This would pack more into the standard case design. Who knows where this would eventually lead or what new capacities a future TI could have. With bank switching and huge memory chips, I can see a whole new class of programs on the horizon. While going SMT would functionally add more to a standard case design, a redesigned or fatter case would also allow for a multi-level or stacked SMT design as well. What could the future bring with that? Case Redesign A longer case would allow for some larger cards, this would enable the average hobbyist to add more components to a standard density PCB design. Of course someone, or a team of someones, would have get together to take the first step in cartridge design and manufacturing as well as a designing the new core format for the new PCB design to reside in the card. Once people have the layout for the board, those designers could then do their thing. I can see this adding some excitement over the next couple of years, it would keep the hobby fresh and interesting, as well a take the TI to a whole new level. Comments, suggestions?

  5. What do you hook your retro consoles into? I haven't had a CRT TV in my house for several years now, so I've been plugging into an HD TV for a while. But I recently bought a huge tube-type from a friend of mine for $20, and it's made a pretty big difference in my opinion. No black bars on the sides, the pixels aren't so sharp, etc. There's something so nice about living in a world where everything is "smart" and then plugging a console without an operating system into a TV without an operating system. What's your opinion? Does the kind of TV really matter to you? Do you prefer HD TVs for retro games?
