  1. As you may have seen on the latest update to the XM status page I'll be demoing the XM and games at the Replay Expo 2011 held in Blackpool in the UK on the weekend of the 5th/6th of November. The XM mandatory games will be Apple Snaffle, Halloween, Monster! and Fruitarian. Unfortunately Dungeon! won't be demoed because its custom cart hardware won't be ready in time and the game isn't CC2 compatible. There may also be a further two unannounced XM mandatory mystery games. However, these are optional at the moment and depend on the amount of development time required to get them into a reasonable state before the show. The XM and its games will be on the Oldschool Gaming homebrew stand organised by TMR. If any other 7800/2600 coders have PAL versions of their homebrew games they'd like to demo let me know. I'll be updating this thread with more information as we get closer to the show.
  2. 1st up hi from the UK guys !! Absolute newb so be gentle,hopefully Ill be able to pic the correct spots to post but let me know if there's somewhere more appropriate. Anyhoo...........Im an old geezer from back in the day,old enough to remember waiting excitedly for new releases for the Intv heh heh -NOT that I ever had the money to buy them but in common with most others now Im older I can behave like a spoilt brat and buy back my youth and the games we all dreamed of. Hopefully Ill be able to chip in now + again but my knowledge pales next to the Yodas that inhabit these forums.Being UK based Im a little limited for sourcing rarities but stuff does pop up now and again.Ive amassed a decent collection I think with most of the rarities barring the new homebrews I read jealously about !!! I will get round to getting some pics on soon but just wanted to tap the amassed knowledge here if I could. - To that end - I just bought a whole collection (to get a couple of rarities and more truthfully to stop it going to eBay!!!!) and amid my (wife calls it my ADHD) excited flicking round testing games I popped in a Defender cart and up pops Pac-Man . Not sure if its a Doh! or Woohoo! moment as I remember people back in the day scamming the likes of Blockbuster etc by swapping game boards round in rentals before attempting to get a mate who worked there to book 'em back in!!!! I asked the chap I bought them from and he was very apologetic.He apparently worked for Mattel in the UK in the 70's and 80's (and is retiring for some Island life hence getting shot of the loft contents) He said he'd taken it home for his kids back then as it was returned as faulty,having the wrong game board. He sounded legit and even offered a refund for the error.Having had a good buy I politely thanked him for the info and no need for the refund but Im at a loss as to the legitimacy of the item. Previous history tells me opening carts without damaging them is pretty iffy-Im not even going into my experiences,thankfully it was only cheapies !!! Anyway,the cart's pretty much without a mark on the plastic,no stresses or screwdriver marks so Im just wondering if this is something anyone's heard of? Is it something I should keep or just a shame for the old Defender cart? Just the 1st time Ive come across this so thought Id ask!
  3. Announcing "the Greatest Entertainment System since Television Itself"... Does anyone know if there were any other numbers of this particular Fan Club UK Newsletter? Cheers, Oscar
  4. I got my hands on not one but two UK 520 STe machines. Last night I opened both of them to examine the motherboard. They are both dirty, one much more than the other. Both seem to be early STe models with separate Blitter chips (vs. integrated with the glue logic IC) and both have the factory installed fix for sound. I also see the "bad" DMA chip in both units as well. Then the differences begin. The cleaner board has four SIMMs (2 of 1 kind, 2 of another kind) where the dirtier board only has two SIMMS. I also see the cleaner board has 28-pin ROMs and the dirtier board has 32-pin ROMs. If I had to guess the TOS version then I would say the 28-pin is 1.06. The 32-pin version is labeled 1.6. The 32-pin ROMs are actual EPROM devices with windows vs OTP device. I haven't powered up either board. My new power supply should arrive this Thursday. While I wait for the power supply to arrive I will try cleaning the motherboard with a soft toothbrush and some alcohol, >90%. Assuming they both fire up and work properly I'd like to install 4 MB of memory and a UK version of TOS 1.62 in both. Maybe these machines will have the improved TOS from ParanoidLIttleMan here. My 1040 STe has a standard US version of TOS 2.06. Since both have the "bad" DMA chip I would like to try installing NetUSBee with a USB flash drive instead of using UltraSatan. I don't know if the floppy drives in either system work. The drive in the dirtier system looks like a solid brick of rust and corrosion. It's a Mitsumi unit. Maybe it still works. erhaps I can get a solid state floppy emulator/replacement if it doesn't. The cleaner system has a Sony unit and looks unexceptional. See the attachments in this message. I hope the images aren't scaled down and compressed too much by the forum system. I plan to update this thread with my progress on getting these machines up and running.
  5. I have decided, to reduce the number of adaptors I need, to buy an NTSC tv for NTSC consoles. I have a question though, would I need to buy a transformer? What is the difference between US and UK voltage? Thank you for any help.
  6. Hi, I was hoping that someone might have 2600 'Vader' for sale in the UK. Preferably one with original power supply, rf lead and a least one joystick. But would be happy with just a working console (I have 3rd party leads and joystick I use with my 6-switch woody and Jr.). Cheers, Lewis
  7. Request: I would very much like to get my old Atari 2600 hooked up to a modern TV to see if it still works and test the range of game cartridges that I have. I have been doing some hunting on the internet and seen various postings that make it look like this goal is possible. Unfortunately I've missed finding the right UK based solution, or more possibly am missing the relevant knowledge to get the posted solutions to work. It sounds like using an old VHS video recorder can help simplify the process. So can you please help understand, in simple terms , how to connect my old Atari 2600 up to a modern TV... Many thanks! Kit List: Atari 2600 Wooden Panel - Model No. CX-2600 P This unit has a Channel Select Switch on its base (A/B) I think this switches between Channels 2 & 3 This Atari 2600 Unit was purchased new in Germany quite a few years ago It has an RCA (I think) cable hardwired into the unit This unit has never had a switch box like I have seen mentioned for some console models on this forum A bunch of original Atari game cartridges that were all bought new in Germany Sony SLV-SE810G VHS Recorder This VHS Recorder was purchased new in the UK A modern TV in the shape of a Panasonic TX-37LZD800 As of yet I have not been able to find out how to tune an analogue channel on this TV to channel 2 or 3 in the VHF band Would I need to be able to tune the TV to channel 2 or 3 if I use the VHS Recorder as a bridge between the modern TV and my Atari 2600? A couple of pictures to hopefully help:
