  1. Hello All, I've been meaning to start this topic for a while but finally mustered the motivation. I wanted to share some resources for those of you who are interested in storing your jaguar carts/cd's in durable universal game cases with game box art inserts. I want to start off by saying that I have nothing against boxes, I certainly save and collect mine, I just don't think they are optimal for day to day storage and use of games, as they get damaged more or less every time you touch them, let alone pull a game in and out of them. I also think they look sort of cheap and flimsy. The plastic "universal game case" containers look slick and are a great way to store you collection IMHO. So without much further ado, let me share my three options for Jaguar storage, and a few tips. Method 1: Cheapest Step 1: Google "Universal Game Cases" they are available for sale all over the interwebs. Purchase whatever amount you think you will need. Here is a current link for some: http://www.thevideostoreshopper.com/universal-game-case/universal-game-case-%7C-full-sleeve-insert/?gclid=CjgKEAjw1-abBRDipKXUycHRlysSJADCRImLq08JJxnIhRctrcaYVo9ROKkvsLNXvkOFouuv9vaGYvD_BwE Step 2: Go to this site: http://www.thecoverproject.net/ and print out whichever game cover you need for the insert. Make sure the sizing is right, trim the edges, and try some glossy paper, photo paper perhaps? Normal paper looks a little cheap/flat. Voila, a bottom dollar custom game case! Method 2: Medium price There used to be a store on ebay that sold custom Jaguar game cases for about $6 bucks, with the option to add the cat eyes and jaguar logo on the inside for an extra buck. They appear to be defunct now, or at least temporarily offline, which is too bad because they had quite a selection and I've purchased many of my cases there. Still, if you search on ebay (or amazon) for "Atari Jaguar (add CD if needed) (Insert Game Name) Case" then often you will find a reasonable deal, in the 4-7 buck range. Just make sure to check the quality and ask if need be whether of not it's done with quality glossy paper. Method 3: Pricey but Quality This site is a little on the pricey side, at $7-$9 bucks a case. But they make quality stuff and have cases that can be found nowhere else (Theme Park, Brutal Sports Football, Towers II). They also have Jag CD DVD boxes, which I think is pretty cool compared to the floppy envelope things. I have moved all of my regular print run Jag CD games to the DVD case style, and now they fit nicely like ducks in a row with my homebrew Jag CD games. http://www.retrogamecases.com/shop/products/game-cases/atari-jaguar/ You can actually email the guy suggestions (as I did) and if you bug him enough, eventually he will make the cases. Still waiting on Protector SE, Memory Track, and Breakout 2000 Here are my remaining pro-tips: 1. The Jaguar games, because of the curvature, fit in the cases best a certain way. If the case is open, put the Jaguar Cart in upside down, with the handle facing the spine and the opening facing the right. I have found this works best of all possible scenarios. There will still be a slight bulge in the case, but nothing that will prevent it from closing, or causing it to pop open. 2. Because of the shape of the carts, and the thickness many instruction manuals, they will not really fit in the cases with the games, like you can do with other systems. What I have done, is lay my extra game case on a carpeted concrete floor, and use a small shop hammer to gently bang out the game supports, creating an empty shell. I then cut a black piece of paper to fit, and use a label maker to make a label for the end of the case saying "ATARI JAGUAL GAME MANUALS A-H." I have three such boxes. You can also make up blank boxes like this with the label maker for any other carts you have that there are not custom cases for yet. For example my memory track, and B&C cart both have such cases. Well that's it!! Thanks for reading, I know some of you are into this already so if anyone else has any site's that have cheaper cases, or any other resources at all, I would love to hear about it!! -Rick Additionally- If you are ever looking for ANY Nintendo cases, this is the cheapest/best guy to go to. He just made a run of Gameboy game cases, and I'm wondering if they might fit Lynx games... http://www.customgamecases.com/
  2. Just a quick question. How do you store you're loose vectrex game cartridges? I mean, for the atari 2600 you had those nice vhs style boxes to store you loose cartridges. But are there any aftermarket boxes for the vectrex? Preferable with space to store the overlay. I now use a binder with sleeves to store the overlays, but it's not ideal.
  3. From the album: Accessories

    Finally! I've been searching for a Tele-Games Center to store my Sears Heavy Sixer.
  4. What is it that you would most like to have but you hadn't seen any for sale yet? One item I think should be made is big specific storage and display cases for each system. Many of us have large collections but need a better way to show off our favorite games. I would love to have large slotted cases designed for certain size cartridges. Nice wooden or plastic racks holding about 100 games would be just great. Another product I would buy in a heartbeat is something designed to clean the contacts on your old school gaming cartridges. They already make those to insert into your Nintendo with cleaning solutions for the consoles & game cartridges. Why the heck hasn't anyone designed one for the Atari, Intellivision, Colecovision etc? What about a cleaning tool, pad, or device that would work on all the smaller hand held gaming units as well? Let's hear your thoughts & ideas on something which you think is needed within the gaming community but you just can't find it in stores or online anywhere.
  5. So i've gotten pretty good at storing carts, floppy disks and such, either using universal game cases, floppy storage bins, or neat shelving, my next conundrum is manuals. I've got quite a pile going.. When i can I put them into cases with games, but MANY manuals don't fit into UGC's (most atari manuals in fact. What do you guys do? I'd really like to have them accessible and perhaps even viewable, so the "put them in a box under the bed" solution isn't what i'm looking for? i was thinking of doing a three ring binder for each system and putting the manuals (1 per) in plastic transparent page holders. Any great ideas out there? Pics appreciated!
  6. I was posting in the Jag forum and came across these again and wondered: Would these fit Lynx Games? http://www.customgamecases.com/ I've been looking for a legit way to store my Lynx games for a while now, so I can display them prominently with the rest of my collection on the shelf. If they fit Gameboy games would they fit Lynx games? Or are lynx games wider? if they would fit we just need someone to start making insert artwork
  7. I was going to ask this in the 65XE keyboard thread, but decided against. (BTW, the only success I've ever had with these is with Bob's 1200XL keyboard fix, BUT I haven't had too many keyboard issues.) My experience is that these pens do not have a good shelf life. Once you have opened the pen and used it, it may not work well again after several months in storage. For this reason, I think I would be wary of buying this from "unknown stock" on eBay. Anyone have any thoughts on storing these to get the max life out of them? Refrigerate (not freeze) the pen in a suitable container? -Larry
  8. I'm looking for either some CV or Atari 2600 multi-cart holders for my shelves or some universal game cases - the kind that are clear and hold 1 game cart of any size and have a slip around the outside that one can insert a cover into. If anyone is looking to get rid of any in good condition I'm willing to pay a fair price, although I have to consider shipping costs because I'm in Canada eh. Krytol custom made some beautiful cartridge racks several years ago (pictured here)... I'd love something like this.
