  1. Hi Everyone!, For years I've been coming to the AtariAge Forums as a "lurker". Mostly in this section (Intellivision) as it has been my passion and favorite system for almost 40 years. The people who know me personally or who have met me at conventions over my 30 year video game career know my passion for Intellivision. If you are a lifelong Intellivision fan like myself... please know that the brand is in good hands. The fact that we still have 4 people at the company who have been around Intellivision since 1981 is also an incredible achievement for ANY video game company. And although it may have gone silent for a few years in the early 90's... rest assured that the original passion is still very much alive. I'll look in some parts of the current office and see things like original signs, marketing materials, awards and my favorites... test carts! Bill Fisher recently found one for the original Space Spartans BEFORE him & Steve Roney (co-founder of the new Intellivision Entertainment) started working on it. SO COOL!!!!!!! I'm hoping I can answer as many questions as I can... so please feel free to ask away. Obviously there will be a LOT I'm unable to discuss (or my marketing & PR folks would KILL ME!)... but I'll try to answer the best I can. If anyone is interested in the latest interview I did (from a few weeks ago) that gives all of the most recent up-to-date public info... you can check it out HERE: Thank-you for keeping the Intellivision name/brand ALIVE all these years!!!! One of our big goals in launching the new system is to ensure that folks 30 and under are well aware of what Intellivision meant to the video game industry 40 years ago and how we helped to revolutionize the gaming industry in so many different ways. I feel it's time for another REVOLUTION!!!!! Anyone with me? Tommy Tallarico CEO/President Intellivision Entertainment
  2. Happy Holidays To all, Barb and I wish you the best for the holidays ****Coming very soon **** Sega combos. Many variations will be available, including the CD, the CD platform and so on. If you have any interest in these, send me a PM indicating which or what combinations you are looking for. How many times have you seen a console setting on a shelf,or a table,and covered in a fine layer of dust or sticky fingerprints? Dust and sticky stuff is not our friend!And its certainly not a friend to our consoles. So, a dust cover is not only "eye candy" but it keeps that console killer, dust out. Oh,lets not forget those other killers,foreign objects,unknown liquids,and little kids. And it adds a touch of cool to your collection *****And to all of you sending prayers our way, Barb and I thank you.******* Leukemia is for lack of a better description a life changer.Since I was diagnosed with this a year and a half ago, our lives have seen the entire range of emotions. I was told that I had 1-2 years left when they 1st found it. Then after a very aggressive pattern of chemo and blood transfusions, it went into remission 4 months ago. But now its back again, and I have to be very worried about infections. So we are back to the chemo again, and hope that another miracle will occur. After a depressing vist with the Dr. it appears that choices of treatment , have become limited. I can either go to the hospital for a month where they would treat this with a very very aggressive chemo, or I can get a milder version , given as a shot for 5 days, every month. The choice is becoming clear, and it is Quality or Quantity. I have chosen the quality, and with that I am not sure where it will go. I will say that at least I have been given the option, which alot of people do not get.And after the second go around with the Chemo, I am holding my own.I cannot decide which is worse, a round of 15 shots or getting a bag hooked up for an hour at a time. Bottom line,with Barbs help, and the amazing drugs I soldier on. Again thank you to all who send us best wishes. Since my wife(Barb) started making these covers over 16 years ago,she has continued to expand the choices.I am posting a lot of pictures so you will be able to see all of the choices available. For those of you just seeing these for the first time,we have been selling on Ebay over 15 years,Atari Age over 5 years and have sold covers to buyers worldwide! Covers for the Atari 400 and 800 now available with Red or White logos. . These are all custom made,from"pleather" which is a type of vinyl/leather.Easy to clean,and maintain Yes,we will accept Paypal-verified *******Shipping, no problem with going out of US, as long as you know I have nothing to do with USPS pricing******* Yes, we will combine shipping. And yes, we will give a discount when multiple items are bought. ******Note***** While most of the pictures show the cover installed on an actual console,a few do not,which is why they look dis-sheveld OK,pricing is as follows: 3DO $31.00 Atari 1050(Floppy Drive) $17.00 Atari 5200-$18.00 Atari 5200 Trak- ball-$16.50 Buy both of the 5200 units(Console and Trak-ball) $32.00 Atari 2600-$18.00 Atari VCS-$18.00 Atari 2600 Heavy Sixer-$18.00 Atari Jr/Rainbow-$14.00 Atari 7800-$18.00 **Atari Specials all 4 covers $60.00= 2600,7800,5200, and 5200 Trakball Atari Jaguar-(white)-$16.00 Atari Jaguar-(red)-$16.00 Atari 400- White or Red Logo-$17.00 Atari 800xl-$18.00 Atari 800 Red or white logo-$19.00 Atari Jaguar CD-$18.00-White or Red lettering Colecovision Console $18.00 Colecovision Roller Controller$16.00 Colecovision Module 1(Atari Adaptor)- $15.00 Colecovision Module 2-$18.00 Buy all 4 for $65.00 Commodore 64-$18.50 Commodore Vic 20-$18.50 Commodore C128- $18.50 Commodore C16-$18.50 Fairchild Channel F -$22.00 **Has cutout for power cord and joystick cords** Intellivision(Master System)-$18.00***With running man logo*** Intellivision II-$16.50 Both Intellivision Special Covers $32.00 Intellivision=INTV III- $18.00 Magnavox Odyssey II $25.00 Mattel Aquarius Computer $16.00 Nintendo-NES 101 Red or White Lettering-$16.50 Nintendo/NES White or Red Lettering-$17.50 N-64-White or Red Lettering-$17.00 SNES-White or Red Lettering-$17.00 Sega Dreamcast-orange-$18.00 Sega Dreamcast blue-$18.00 Sega Dreamcast Red- $18.00 Sega Genesis II-$16.50 Sega Genesis-16 bit $18.50 Sega Saturn -$18.50 Sega Master System -$16.50 Sega Mega Drive- $17.50 Sega Mega Drive II - $16.50 Sears Video Arcade II $18.00 ***Looks like the Atari 7800 Sears Tele-Games(Atari 2600) -$18.00 Sears Tele-Games(Atari Heavy 6r)- $19.00 Sony Playstation 1 $16.50 Sega Mega Drive- $17.50 Sega Mega Drive II - $16.50 RS 80/Tandy/Radio Shack Computer-$19.00 Texas Instruments 99/4a $18.50 Turbo Graphx 16/TG 16 $18.00 Vectrex Dustcover Black /w/ Blue ,White,Red logo $38.00 Vectrex Cover Gray with Black/Blue $38.00 XBox(Original) $25.00 PM me for additional questions And Thanks for looking. Over the past few years we have had numerous requests for consoles and computers that we do make. The reason we do not make them is because we have not had the actual console/ computer to use for a template. Buyers say, well I can give you the dimensions or send a picture. The problem is that dimensions do not take into account all the curves, bends, protrusions etc that are common on these units. So, working from supplied dimensions almost never works. Barb and I are not as mobile as we used to be, so trying to find these computers/ game consoles is a crap shoot at best and a waste of time at worst. What we can offer is this.If you have a console/computer, preferably a parts shell unit, that your willing to send us, we will make a cover for it and send it back at no charge! Now, we are not interested in units that are so obscure that there might only be 100 in the world. Obviously for us to make the cover there has to be a market of some kind, so please keep that in mind. So, shoot me a PM, let me know what your looking for and we can see if we can help each other!
  3. So I regard this as one of the best arcade-style maze games of all time and easily among my top games in the Intellivision library; it's a shame that this title didn't get more attention imo. Everything from the wall-to-wall music (unheard of at the time) to the art design and animation work is simply wonderful. That and it's a game that I have always found to be very enjoyable and boasting a surprising amount of strategic depth and complexity for something from so early in the history of video games. Back in the day I never could get past Level 9 though. Then a few years ago I picked up the Intellivision Lives collection for the Nintendo DS/3DS and my interest was rekindled. I just had to beat that dreaded Level 9, demons be damned! And so one day I finally did and reveled in the elation of my hard-fought triumph. Then out of curiosity I looked online to see if I could find recorded footage of someone else showing this as well but came up empty. So I thought well how cool would it be to be someone to do it? The problem is I just didn't have any practical means of recording gameplay, whether from the 3DS or original Intellivision hardware. But then one day I discovered the jzINTV emulator and all that changed. Fast forward a bit and here we are now. My tactics have continued to evolve as I've honed my skills in this game to new levels. For those interested or who may also have a love for this game I present to you for consumption my latest deep run to Level 15: I hope that folks will enjoy it and/or that it could serve as a learning tool for this excellent game, and perhaps people could glean new strategies from it for their own play. I have also toyed with the idea of writing a strategy guide for the game as well as I haven't really seen one out there. Hmmm perhaps one day =P
  4. I am looking for an Intellivision (plug in play or classic). Let me know if you have one you'd like to part with and we can discuss it. Thanks!!
  5. INTRODUCING THE ALL NEW IMAGIC OVERLAYS 2.0 FOR INTELLIVISION This keypad overlay set was inspired by the metallic Boxes & Labels that most IMAGIC Intellivision games had way back when. IMAGIC never made metallic matching overlays for their titles. For that reason this new metallic backed overlay set has been created to fill this gap. Only 100 sets of this collection has been produced. Once they are gone, they're gone. This hand made DIY overlay set includes: • 15 pairs of metallic backed Overlays in the style of IMAGIC (30 total overlays) which included in that 15 pairs is one pair of Wing War overlays. • 2 Limited edition metallic trading cards of unreleased IMAGIC Intellivision games • 1 Instruction manual All shrink wrapped and included in a great authentic metallic IMAGIC styled game box. Pricing is as followed. Each Overlay Set is $76.00 USD plus shipping. Shipping inside the U.S.A. will be USPS Priority Mail $7.00. Shipping to Canada is First Class International mail USPS $12.00. Shipping anywhere else in the world please message me for pricing. I only accept payment via PayPal. The stated shipping cost is for up to 2 copies. Any more than that will require more shipping. IMPORTANT: IF YOU ARE ORDERING MORE THAN TWO SETS I NEED YOUR LOCATION TO CALCULATE SHIPPING. TO ORDER: PM me with the subject line "IMAGIC OVERLAYS 2.0 OFFER" and state how many sets you wish to order and what country it will be shipped to. Be sure to include your PayPal email address in your PM. This is so I can send you an invoice. Once the invoice is paid, I should have your order in the mail within 24-36 hours (not including weekends/holidays). Remember there are only 100 0 copies to be sold and no more will be made. Orders are first come first serve (Basically in order of PM's received)! Background of project: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/238317-interest-check-imagic-foil-backed-overlays/
  6. Hey all, have some things I would like to show you all. Probably nothing new on here but I always find it interesting to see other people's finds and get an idea on prices. Also love to see some of the rare and not so average things. These pictures are my latest pickups, interesting to me. Both consoles work fine. Please any reply or posts on pricing or information is much appreciated, thanks! P.s.-I Collect all types of games and systems, 30 in total. Lately (last two years) it's been more cartridge games.
  7. I've been interested in video art for the Bally Arcade/Astrocade for the last year or two. I doubt anything like this existed for the Intellivision back in the 1980s, but does any video art exist for the Intellivision today? Here's an example of video art for the Astrocade that I uploaded today: Here are a few examples of video art for the astrocade that I've uploaded to YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJdViXGk3iI&list=PLADcQ67H2uU0R8npUnSmT6X8Ad6mKh_3o This sort of art can be created relatively easily on the astrocade because it has a bit-mapped screen and BASIC was available on cartridge. Could intyBASIC be used to make video art like these examples? Adam
  8. HI guys, I thought I'd make my 2500th post count so here's some pics from my recently completed Digimed/Digiplay Intellivision collection. To the best of my knowledge, after spending most of this year focusing on completing this part of my Intellivision collection, I believe this to be one of the few complete CIB Digiplay collections in North America and Europe. I spoke at length with Roger (Psychostormtrooper) about this stuff as he is one of the experts on these variations and had a complete collection himself at one point. He has since sold off all of his Intellivision stuff and I bought the last part of his collection which included 7 or 8 CD/DVD's of images including his Digiplay stuff. We were unable to determine with certainty whether a couple of titles that were shown on the INTV2/Digiplay2 box were in fact released as neither he nor I have come across them. With that said, if anything else is found, it'll be on my want list (there is another catalog I'm aware of), but until that time, here is what a complete CIB cartridge and systems collection looks like. Enjoy. The first shot is the original 30 games, the rest on the other shelves with the systems are duplicates. (The normal looking Intellivision boxes on the middle right shelf are Bandai Intellivision games, my 2012 collection goal. )
  9. The title pretty much says it all. Has no one attempted/succeed at this? Google searches are fruitless. I feel like, out of several billions of people alive today, I may be the ONE person looking to output my Intellivision via Component. 🤷🏼‍♂️ I'm weird like that, I guess.
  10. Not major, but really like this new fridge magnet I got off of eBay. It's 3D printed. No promises your order will include one, but mine included a free kick-stand which is how it is propped up in the photo. eBay Auction -- Item Number: 233171802210
  11. HI! New to the forums, so apologies in advance for the noob question. I recently picked up an Intellivoice module (boxed and cheap) and am struggling to get anything close to reasonable play out of it. My brown original console works, controllers are fine, etc. I can play game cartridges with no problems, etc. However, inserting the Intellivoice and then inserting a cartridge results in the black screen 9 times out of 10. After fiddling with it, re-inserting it, cleaning the cartridge slot, etc. I can get it to work for a session, then am back to square one the next day. I've noticed that there is not a "tight" fit between the console and the intellivoice module. I've also noticed quite a bit of "play" in the connection between the two. Is this normal? Do I just have a "loose" module? Is there an optimal connection point or angle between the two? Even just pulling out a cartridge and putting in another one is enough to break this connection and send me back to square one. Haven't tried taking the module apart yet for a really deep cleaning, but am willing to go that route for a reliable connection. Thanks in advance for any advice!
  12. Mattel Test Cartridges Mattel's test cartridges were used by Mattel and others to diagnose malfunctioning Intellivision consoles. This is an attempt to document the various Mattel Test Cartridges out there. This information is likely incomplete. As folks contribute more info, this original post will be updated. Note that freewheel's "FW Diagnostics" cartridge is not listed here but is a modern homebrew test cartridge. Known Cartridges There are 7 known Mattel test cartridges. They vary by 2 things: Version of the test code Whether a game plays at the end They are: Version Displayed Successful Name Version Ending Original Label ------- --------- ---------- -------------- v1.0 <none> no game, "PASS-PASS-PASS" VIDEO TEST CARTRIDGE v1.0a V1A no game, "PASS-PASS-PASS" ? v3 V3 Baseball MTE 201 TEST CARTRIDGE v3b V3 Night Stalker ? v3.3 V3.3 blank green screen ? v4.1a V4.1 blank green screen ? v4.1b V4.1 Night Stalker ? "Version Name" is the common name given to ROM files. For example, v4.1a and v4.1b have identical testing code and only differ by whether the game Night Stalker runs at the end of successful tests. Note that v3 is also commonly called "MTE-201" but will be mostly referred to as V3 for naming consistency with the other cartridges. "Displayed Version" is shown in the lower left corner (except for v1.0). Confusing the issue of labels is that even among cartridges that are otherwise exactly identical, the printed labels vary. However, most of label variations appear to be non-original labels (ex: someone printed a new label with a name they picked) and some of these non-original labels are easy to spot. For example, in the photo below, the left label is fortunately correct but it uses a modern font that on paper with rounded corners only on the top half. Some non-original labels with different text look somewhat similar. Most of this document will use the Displayed Version to differentiate between the cartridges since the test code, not the game, is the focus. The exception is the "Video Test Cartridge" that will simply be called V1. Results on Various Systems Most of the cartridges will pass a functioning original Mattel Intellivision (includes Tandyvision One and GTE Sylvania). However, the Sears Intellivision, Intellivision II, and Tutorvisions have differences that will cause the early versions to incorrectly report a failure. The later cartridges attempt identify what system they are on and print it in the lower left corner with an "M" or "O" sometimes followed by the number "1" or "2". One exception is V3.3, which was intended to only test the Intellivision II. Oddly, it incorrectly identifies the Intellivision II as "O" rather than the expected "M" or "M2" due to a bug in the code (thanks to JoeZ for the analysis). However, it will correctly test the Intellivision II. In the table below, each system lists 3 things: What system was displayed in the lower left corner (or n/a if nothing was displayed) What tests failed, identified by letter (ex: B) What chips failed, identified by the circuit board's name of the chip (ex: U09) Version INTV 1 Results Sears Results INTV II Results ------- -------------- ------------- --------------- V1 n/a | Pass n/a | Pass n/a | Fail B, C, J | U03, U06, U09 V1A n/a | Pass n/a | Pass n/a | Fail B, C, J | U03, U06, U09 V3 n/a | Pass n/a | Fails L, M | U03, U09 n/a | Fail B, J, M | U03, U06, U09 V3.3 O | Fails B | U03 O | Fails B | U03 O | Pass V4.1 M1 | Pass O1 | Pass O2 | Pass Tutorvision results are missing from above since Lathe26's TutorPro's already damaged RCA jack broke off. Failure Codes So far, only full service manuals for V1 / V1A, and V3 (MTE-201) have been found that list failure letters (ex: V1 reports test B failed) and which chips they map to (ex: V1 identifies U9 as bad). These come from the "Sylvania Intellivision Service Manual", from the "Intellivision Service Manual", and from Papa Intellivision's "CCF10232011_00012". Both documents are attached to this post below but the relevant tables are here. V1 / V1A Failure Table V3 Failure Table V3 Failure Table (alternative) Note that Lathe26 has a "Sylvania Intellivision Service Manual" and eventually plans to scan it in color. This includes a separate addendum that apparently has never been scanned before that the covers differences from the first Intellivisions (serial numbers <4000) from later serial numbers. Acronyms IMI = Incoming Material Inspection MTE = ?? 1+7 Test Menu At the controller testing screen, if the user presses 1+7 at the same time, the user is presented with a Test Menu on the later test cartridges. It allows the user to run individual tests one at a time. This menu is operated with the right controller only. Simply type in the test's number and press Enter. Type in "00" and Enter to exit the menu. Version Test Menu ------- --------- V1 no V1A no V3 Yes V3.3 Yes V4.1 Yes There is some variation in the menus, mostly notably because the V3.3 cartridge test the Intellivision II which has slightly different chips. V3 Test Menu V3.3 Test Menu V4.1 Test Menu 2+8 Checksum Screen and Games At the controller testing screen, if the user presses 2+8 at the same time, checksums of any game code will be displayed. The checksum is displayed for all test cartridges even though only some of the test cartridges will play the game after a successful test pass. Only the later test cartridges will play a game if the tests are successful by jumping to code starting at the $5000 address range. Earlier test cartridges lack code to jump to a game, even though they will calculate the checksums. Further, there 2 slightly different ways the checksum is calculated. In all cases, the checksum is simply a 16-bit of various memory ranges. Older test carts display 2 numbers in octal format called "CART CHECKSUM LO" and "CART CHECKSUM HI". These correspond to checksums calculated for the 2K word ranges of $5000-$57FF and $5800-$5FFF, respectively. The checksum is displayed whether or not a game is present. When a game is not present, 00777774000 is displayed (the sum of 2K's worth of the value $FFFF). Newer test carts display a list of memory ranges by displaying a list of hexadecimal numbers in the left column (ex: "5" means the 4K memory range of $5000-$5FFF) and then display a checksum in octal next to it. This displays multiple memory ranges from 5xxx through Fxxx. Checksums are only displayed if code is present. These cartridges always skip 1 number in the 5xxx through Fxxx range (V3.3 skips 7xxx while V4.1 skips Cxxx). Below are the known cartridges: Version Low Chksum Hi Chksum Checksum 5 Game ------- ---------- --------- ---------- ---- v1.0 00777774000 00777774000 n/a none v1.0a 00777774000 00777774000 n/a none v3 00002371677 00003372642 n/a Baseball v3b 00001014317 00002732341 n/a Night Stalker v3.3 n/a n/a n/a none v4.1a n/a n/a n/a none v4.1b n/a n/a 00003746660 Night Stalker Note that for the 2 cartridges with Night Stalker that adding the checksum values of 00001014317 with 00002732341 results in 00003746660. Most games can be used with the test cartridges. As an experiment, the game Brickout, which was never released by Mattel, was added to each of the test cartridges. This game was chosen so the ROMs would never be confused with legitimate ROMs from real test cartridges. This game is <2K so the HI checksum is 00000000000 and the LO checksum is 00001604524. Later test cartridges also display the same 00001604524 value. The below table also shows that V1 and V1A don't play the game. Version Game Appended Low Chksum Hi Chksum Checksum 5 Game plays? ------- ------------- ---------- --------- ---------- ----------------- V1 Brickout 00001604524 00000000000 n/a No V1A Brickout 00001604524 00000000000 n/a No V3 Brickout 00001604524 00000000000 n/a Yes V3.3 Brickout n/a n/a 00001604524 Yes V4.1 Brickout n/a n/a 00001604524 Yes Using Brickout, the checksum displays are: V1, V1A, and V3 Checksum Screen V3.3 Checksum Screen V4.1 Checksum Screen Interestingly, V4.1 is compatible with the ECS and will display checksums of the ECS ROMs as well. This only occurs for the real v4.1 test cartridges. The LTO FLASH disables the ECS ROMs so a V4.1 ROM running from the LTO FLASH will not see it (likely changeable via an LTO setting). The Brickout versions of the various Test Cartridges are attached at the bottom of post. Also, a Unix Bash script is included that will compute checksums for any game or other ROMs such as from the ECS (script tested under the Cygwin shell). Memory Ranges and ECS Compatibility The test cartridges code (excluding any game code), use the following address ranges. Version Size Memory Ranges ------- ---- ---------------------------- V1 8KB $7000 - $7FFF V1A 8KB $7000 - $7FFF V3 8KB $7000 - $7FFF V3.3 16KB $4000 - $4FFF, $C000 - $CFFF V4.1 12KB $4800 - $4FFF, $C000 - $CFFF Note that only the V4.1 is compatible with the ECS. Older cartridges either conflict with the ECS's $7000-$7FFF range or with the ECS's RAM at $4000-$47FF. Cartridge Internals Some of the test cartridges have been opened up and photographed. This shows what the chip numbers and manufacturing dates were. What's interesting is that some of the cartridges show that the test code was on one chip while the game code was from same chip that was used in the normal game's cartridge. v1.0 (no game) shield is soldered onto the board, two chips are visible underneath v1.0a (no game) no photo v3 (Baseball) v3 (Night Stalker) board appears to be a standard Night Stalker board that the 994 chip was added at a later time (solder work on underside of board for 994 chip is noticeably different) v3.3 (no game) no photo v4.1a (no game) v4.1b (Night Stalker) no photo IMI Tester-MTE 100 Briefly, there is a portable Intellivision diagnostic system that enables testing individual chips. It is called the IMI Tester-MTE 100. It comes with what appears to be an MTE-201 (i.e. a V3) built into it. More information on this system is available at http://www.intvfunhouse.com/hardware/mte100/ Acknowledgement While small parts of this was from my own investigations, the vast majority of this information was many other people who scanned, photographed, dumped, and analyzed the cartridges long before my involvement. Most of this documentation stands on their shoulders. Test Carts with Brickout and Checksum Calculator.zip Sylvania Intellivision Service Manual.pdf Intellivision Service Manual - Big One.pdf
  13. Introducing Inty ECS GPS https://youtu.be/_8zZaOlPb58 Have you ever wanted to hook up your Intellivision to GPS? Now you can! The hardware setup for the Inty ECS GPS software is: Intellivision ECS GPS unit that outputs Garmin TextOut serial data, set to 1200 baud, 8N1 Cable that adapts ECS AUX to serial (Tx/Rx version) Cable wiring: ECS ECS DE-9 Signal Plug pin ------ ------ ---- Tx Tip 2 (optional, not used by Inty ECS GPS) Rx Ring 3 GND Sleeve 5 Note: the cable in the video also has internal loopback on the DE-9 for when it is plugged into a PC, but this is not relevant to connecting to the GPS hardware. This project grew out of my studying of the ECS's UART registers, which were poorly understood. As far as I know, this program demonstrates the first time in decades that anyone has read data from the AUX port into the ECS (writing out the AUX port previously known from the ECS's printer code in ROM). I eventually plan to present more formal register documentation later. For eager/curious developers, the source code here contains preliminary definitions of the registers and bit-fields. Since further research is still being done, expect some of the bit-field names to change in the future. For example, one unnamed bit field has recently been observed to change values but is still not fully understood at this time. ROM and source code provided below. Inty_ECS_GPS.zip
  14. In this episode I discuss some games that were made exclusively for Intellivision. I want to thank some of you guys who talked me into giving Intellivision a second chance. This is for you guys.
  15. We have still Deep Zone cartridges on stock at http://intellivisionrevolution.com/store DEEP ZONE $60.00 + SHIPPING
  16. The interesting trend in the 70s was store-branded video games. There were store branded everything in the 70s. I posed this question asking about "linear media" on lddb.com, a laser disc website, and I knew about the Sears Beta, and later found out about the JCPenney VHS, and was wondering if there was a store brand Laser Disc or Selectavision (a format often confused with Laser Disc, but different). I used video game store brands like Sears Telegames, Sears Super Telegames, Tandy Vision, and Montgomery Ward Game System, which were respectively, Atari 2600, Intellivision, Intellivision, and Bally as examples. I don't know the logic behind it. I assume it was to keep store brand loyalty. But I assume it can backfire. If Sears was talking about the Telegames and Super Telegames, and didn't have an Atari 260 and Intellivision section, if you were from Mars, you'd say the were promoting their own brand. Kind of like what Aldi does with most of their food products. Was their marketing not to mention the brand name, and use only the store name? I understand they wanted store loyalty, but did they keep more sales they'd lose to other stores with store brands, or did they lose more sales from brand name people by browsing and seeing only store brand stuff? I'm trying to figure out whether it was a net positive to have store branding or a net negative. If you've owned any of these system during their prime, whether you were a kid, a parent, or a childless grownup at the time: Atari 2600, Intellivision, Bally Astrocade, Sears Telegames, Sears Super Telegames, Tandyvision, Montgomery Ward Game System, the question is "Have you dabbled or stayed loyal, ether out of ignorance of their intercompatibility or out of pride?" By the way, I voted no interactive media, since my first was a Colecovision, which had no store brand problems, and a Sanyo BetaCord (a name brand), and dad didn't avoid Sears for Beta tapes. I think they were branded as Sears Beta brand tapes, which he has bought before. I see them downstairs, so No for avoiding Sears Brand Beta tapes.
  17. A bit of history about myself. My very first game console I received as a young child, somewhere in the early 1980's, was the Intellivision II, and I had a handful of games for it. I loved the thing, but it didn't last very long, I remember it conking out after only a few months of ownership. I was much too young to consider fixing it myself, and I had no understanding of how to fiddle with it to diagnose the problem. All I knew was it didn't work anymore. And that was it. That was my first foray into video game ownership. I remember 3 games in particular that I had, and they were: Horse Racing, Burgertime, and Swords and Serpents. I really enjoyed those games, I couldn't get enough of them, especially Swords and Serpents. I still have the urge to defeat the game, because I distinctly remember getting very far into it, only to get stuck and never finish the game. These are very old memories, and it is starting to give me an itch that I can only scratch in one way, and that is to buy another Intellivision II and reacquire those games. I have been running through some options online, but none of the options are really very good. The Intellivision market is pretty expensive on the console side, and the controllers have generally not held up well at all over time. I would like to have something with a video mod, but that just adds to the cost obviously. I looked into the Intellivision Flashback, and the only game of my 3 listed above on there is Horse Racing, and that's not good enough. It is an interesting option, but I'm not embarking on acquiring this console unless I can play the games I remember so fondly. Emulation is not an option for me on my computer, it doesn't do anything for me. It doesn't satisfy any urges, so that's a no go. Overall, I have not been impressed with what I've seen for sale on ebay. Most of the consoles look dirty and very used, often in bad condition, even missing controllers. Some look like soda was spilled all over. Cosmetic problems are easy to take care of, but just that kind of general mis-use tells me the owners offered no care of their own to the console, who knows what else is wrong with it you know? Basically I'm just thinking about it for now. Maybe a forum member here will have some deal in the near future that I can pounce on when the opportunity arises. Or, maybe I'll see something acceptable on the Bay.
  18. I collect Intellivision carts with a white Intellivision Inc label placed over the original colored Mattel label...don't ask https://www.shopgoodwill.com/Item/63399513#shipping-tab-mobile I recently missed out on this ShopGoodwill auction and was hoping that someone here picked it up for reasons other than the Burgertime cart. I'd love to add it to my collection and would be willing to buy/trade for it (like maybe a complete boxed copy of Intellivision Burgertime plus a bonus game or two). Here's the pic from the auction: Again, I'm not looking for the white labeled one or the yellow labeled one. I only want the white label over the yellow label. Atari fans probably recognize this from some of the M Network games.
  19. What we have here is my entire Intellivision collection. It’s a pretty sweet collection containing 44 games (most of which have their manuals and overlays with three that are CIB), a boxed intellivoice and an original intellivision. I got almost all of it at an estate sale about 5 years ago. I’m not a fan of the Intellivsion and I never will be. I’ve hung onto it all these years because it was a feather in my cap to own it. But, it’s just taking up space and I have no good reason to hang on to. So to prove that I'm not a hoarder... here it is looking for a home that will value it. I’m the second owner, so far as I know, and all come from a smoke free home. I originally posted this here, but after a day of being up and not a single page view, I'm not going to waste my time waiting. It's now up on ebay. Hardware Original “Model 1” Intellivision - In working condition. At some point I had it open, washed the thing out and cleaned the contacts in the controllers. Intellivoice – Comes with the original box, but no manual. Also in fine working condition. It says B-17 Bawwwwmer just fine. Two plastic game cases (see photo), each able to hold 20 games and their manuals. One has a little damage on the lid where the front tab broke off, but both have intact hinges. Games Advanced Dungeons and Dragons - Manual and overlays Advanced Dungeons and Dragons: Treasures of Tarmin - Loose Cart Armor Battle - Manual and overlays Astrosmash - Manual and overlays Auto Racing - Manual and overlays Backgammon - Manual and overlays Beauty and the Beast - Manual and overlays Bowling - Manual and overlays Boxing - Manual and overlays Burger Time - Manual and overlays Centipede - Loose Cart Checkers - Manual and overlays Demon Attack - Manual and overlays Donkey Kong - Loose Cart Dragonfire - Manual and overlays Golf - Manual and overlays Horse Racing - Manual and overlays Lock ‘N’ Chase - Manual and overlays Math Fun - Manual and overlays Microsurgeon - Manual and overlays MLB Baseball - Complete in Box NASL Soccer - Manual and overlays NBA Basketball - Manual and overlays NFL Football - Manual, playbooks and overlays NHL Hockey - Manual and overlays Night Stalker - Manual and overlays Pitfall - Loose cart Poker & Blackjack – Complete in box Reversi - Manual and overlays Sea Battle - Manual and overlays Skiiing - Manual and overlays Snafu - Manual and overlays Space Armada - Manual and overlays Space Battle – Complete in box Space Hawk - Manual and overlays Star Strike - Manual and overlays Triple Action - Loose cart Tron Deadly Discs - Manual and overlays Tron Maze-A-Tron - Manual and overlays Word Fun - Manual and overlays Vectron - Loose cart Intellivoice Games Bomb Squad - Manual and overlays B-17 Bomber - Manual and overlays Space Spartans - Manual and overlays
  20. Been a long time since I've been on the AtariAge website, but I've been a member since 2006 (according to my profile) and had been coming here much longer than that. I'm gearing up to sell some of my extra games. I've got at least 10 new/unopened Slap Shot Super Pro Hockey cartridges with manuals. I bought out the stock from a store many years back...there was apparently a shortage of boxes, so they were selling these new-with-manual in plastic baggies (see the attached picture). I'm selling these for $27.50 each, including shipping (international shipping would be at cost). I see that they've been re-released by the Blue Sky Rangers with a newly-created box for $45-50, so if you're looking to buy with box, you should definitely go with them. However, for those collectors and gamers who aren't into the boxes and would like to buy the game for a lower price, just pop me a message if you're interested. I'll get back to you within 48 hours. I'll post again when they're all spoken for. Cheers! JeffGamer

  22. From the album: INTV

    My custom Sears unit that I restored & modded w/ RGB and composite AV, plus a custom Inty arcade controller that I built using a Neo Geo X as a base & Grips03's PCB kit. I used a magic eraser to clean up the cream colored plastic, the backend was repainted, a paint pen was used to touch up the raised lettering and then the whole console was clear coated. A lot of time and work put into it all, but everything came out great!
