  1. In my latest episode I discuss more Atari 5200 Prototypes. Which prototypes are your favorites and which would you like to see completed? Don't forget that I'll be live on Youtube every Wednesday @ 9:00 PM central. Stop by and say hello!
  2. There weren't a lot of rare and valuable games for this system. Did I miss any? Let me know. thank you!
  3. What I mean is that when you play Atari 5200 games on the Atari 800 using a Sio2sd will all the games play just like they would on a real Atari 5200, no emulation? I'm aware that the systems are very similar but the software is built differently but once you run it will the games play natively? Like is it comparable to other backwards compatible systems like the GBA with gbc and the Ps2 with ps1 games?
  4. I am working on another design of a controller adapter for the 5200. It shall be used together with a 6 button Megadrive/Genesis controller to provide full keypad functionality. Ready: - Schematics; - Preliminary PCB; Work in progress: - Code (90%). Todo: - Testing; - Documentation.
  5. I usually post links to my channel on another sub forum, but I wanted to share this with the fans of the 5200. I'm glad I tried the 5200 and I have enjoyed the high quality games and prototypes this system had. Let me know what you guys think and please subscribe if you haven't already. Thank you!!
  6. It's been a few years and I recently rediscovered my copy of Astro-Grover for the Atari 5200. I have no idea if it retained any value or whatnot over the years but its never even been removed from the bag It was bought at auction in! Its the first copy of 50 stated on the back. Anyone interested or know any info on the piece? (Took it out of the bag it was in for a photo, it wasn't sealed or anything.)
  7. I have a few questions about the Atari 5200, as I never owned one. I know that one of the complaints about the 5200 was that you couldn't play 2600 games on it. I read somewhere that an adapter was made so that you could. Was that made back in the day or more recently? I heard that the biggest problem with the 5200 was that there were issues with the hardware (the system itself, joysticks, etc). How much truth is there to that? If you were going to tell someone to give the 5200 another chance, what reasons would you give? Thanks, guys! I'll give credit to the answers given in a forth-coming episode on my channel.

  9. Hello everyone! I've got a question about an Atari 5200 I recently picked up on craigslist. It's a 4-port model and came with all of the appropriate cords and stuff. I took it home and hooked it up and I could not get it to send a signal to the television. Curiously, the red light does come on the console itself, so I believe it is getting power, but the television does not display a signal at all. I tried on a couple of different TVs and got the same results. Wiggling the cord doesn't help either. I read on another forum thread here that the switchbox itself makes a "clicking sound" when you power up the console. However, I didn't hear any sound when I powered mine up. It does, however, allow another console to pass through it via the antennae plug in, and does display that video signal. Anyone have any idea what it could be? I was assured by the previous owner that the console worked the last time he plugged it in. If it is indeed the switchbox, does anyone have a homemade one that I can buy from them? My solderng skills are not up to par with creating one from scratch. Thanks and I look forward to your responses!

  12. Yeah, so I did some thinking, I think I want one. Do I really though? Give me some reasons why it would be a good choice. Recommend some games. 4 port of 2 port? What to expect. How much to pay Thanks!
  13. "I'd certainly nominate [The Dreadnaught Factor] for remake status. With some visual upgrades, it would make a great XBLA download." -IGN Review "A cheapo remake [of The Dreadnaught Factor] on XBOX Live Arcade would be a blast..." -flojomojo "Would also like to see a remake of an old Intellivision game called 'The Dreadnought Factor' (also on the atari 5200)" -Andifferous This needed doing. So I did it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=85j1Agw6Zgw The current version is just a prototype for the CREATE Jam contest. The prototype runs on generic Android hardware with an attached game controller. (e.g. Ouya dev hardware, an MK808 stick, or a Nexus 7 tablet) The game is ultimately going to be developed for the Ouya and GameStick game consoles. If anyone is interested in trying the prototype, let me know and I'll post the APK file. Note that I need your support to progress in the CREATE Jam contest. Please support me in the contest by liking the video below! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpLWWQ85VuE Hope you like it, and I'd love to hear your thoughts!
  14. Is the Atari 5200 worth collecting? This is meant to be an overview for people who have never owned the console and know very little about it. I did a big shoutout to AtariAge in the video. Hope you guys & gals like it...

  16. Since her sister Maria received new clothes and Stella received new clothes, it was only a matter of time. Download the Atari 5200 palette files here: Pam2XX_Palettes_20131108.zip The 'Pam' palette files are presented with the same options as the 'Maria' palette files. There is a "base" palette plus the following options: x0 = Saturation Increase x1 x2 = Gamma Increase and Saturation Deltas x3 x4 x5 = Gamma and Saturation Increase with Contrast Deltas x6 x7 x8 = Saturation Increase with Contrast Deltas x9 Also like the Maria and Stella palettes, we have Phase Shifts 24.7 through 27.7 degrees in 0.5 degree increments. In addition to palette files with the '*.pal' file extension, the complete set above is also presented with the '*.act' file extension (Used with Atari 5200 emulators such as Atari800Win Plus, Jum52, & kat5200). Phase Shifting examples follow utilizing the x0 [saturation increase only] NTSC palette in the following order... Pam247NTSCx0 --> Pam252NTSCx0 --> Pam257NTSCx0 --> Pam262NTSCx0 --> Pam267NTSCx0 --> Pam272NTSCx0 --> Pam277NTSCx0. Pole Position: Joust: The next few are highlighting the two ends of the phase shift spectrum and a logical 'middle' ground (See explanation below): Pam247NTSCx0 --> Pam262NTSCx0 --> Pam277NTSCx0 Astro Chase: Moon Patrol: Mr. Do's Castle: Ms. Pac-Man: Pitfall II: Here are examples showcasing the different options within each phase shift. Phase Shift 26.2 degrees is selected in this order: PAM262NTSC --> PAM262NTSCx0 --> PAM262NTSCx1 --> PAM262NTSCx2 --> PAM262NTSCx3 --> PAM262NTSCx4 --> PAM262NTSCx5 --> PAM262NTSCx6 --> PAM262NTSCx7 --> PAM262NTSCx8 --> PAM262NTSCx9 Frogger: Pitfall: Color Bars with Reference from PAM Diagnostic [sALT] Cart v1.1: Pam247NTSC --> Pam252NTSC --> Pam257NTSC --> Pam262NTSC --> Pam267NTSC --> Pam272NTSC --> Pam277NTSC. GTIA CHIP - NTSC C014805 Official Document Color Order: Atari 5200 Field Service Manual: Per the technical documents referenced above the following can be deduced: Directions were given for the color just below and above the (grey) reference bar to be within one shade of each other. Under the same reference document, directions are given for it to be the same color. Phase Shift 25.7 degrees - matching Hue 1x, 15x and the color below the reference grey bar fits making it the same color. Accounting for system 'warm-up'/phase shifting as well as the instructions for it to be within one shade of each other would make Phase Shift 26.2 a realistic logical choice. It also collaborates with the official document color order: Hue 1x = Gold, Hue 2x = Orange, Hue 15x/F$ = Light-Orange; Phase Shift 26.2 places Hue 15x/F$ between Hue 1x, gold and Hue 2x, orange; a light orange in color. Here is an alternative capture of the color bars from the PAM Diagnostic [sALT] Cart v1.1 with Phase Shift 26.2 degrees in place by utilizing the 'Pam262NTSC' palette within kat5200's NTSC video simulation mode along with a few game captures: (Click on the capture to remove some of the distortion) Hue 1x for NTSC is intended to be gold, not green-yellow/yellow-green. Gold is how Hue 1x appears under a CRT - the original and intended display device for the system. A green-yellow/yellow-green Hue 1x is how the NTSC 5200 palette is manipulated and modified (in part) under a modern flat panel (I.E. LCD/LED/Plasma) display. The above harmonizes with what has been documented for the Atari 2600 and Atari 7800 systems as well, regarding their NTSC color palette. Although there is no Atari 5200 PAL system the palettes offered in the download for the PAL region are theoretical ones based upon how the colors align under the Atari 7800 PAL system (Since Atari 5200 NTSC and Atari 7800 NTSC share essentially the same palette when viewed on a CRT). However, it should be noted that PAL 8-bit (400/800) Atari computer systems appear to provide the same - or an *extremely* similar - palette of NTSC Atari 5200 consoles displayed on a CRT. Additionally, that would also mean that Atari 8-bit NTSC and PAL palettes are the same (Or extremely similar) from at least the 'base' level. Once actually processed through display circuitry from their respective region as well as slight hardware system differences (There is an additional oscillator for 8-bit PAL systems driving color frequencies), other items such as NTSC color 'artifacting' would not be present under PAL. A thorough summary of Atari 2600/5200/7800 console system palettes is here.

    From the album: My Collection

  19. Is it considered easy or difficult to reprogram games for the Atari 400 or 800 as to run with professional quality on a 5200 system? Are there big differences in 1) hardware 2) program language? I’m very ‘layman’ as to programming and hardware. If its possible, please, describe or explain in quite straightforward or common terminology.
  20. Need these last few commons for a CIB Atari 5200 set. Hoping to snag all,or a bulk of them together. Separate they are hardly worth the trouble with shipping costs. Must be good/great condition and complete in box with all manuals,inserts,pamphlets, and overlays where applicable. Centipede Defender Missile Command Ms. Pac Man Space Invaders Somewhat Less common but, also need these CIB Atari VCS Adapter Masterplay 5200 Joystick Interface (larger red box version) DM me if interested in trade. I have bits of everything from pong to ps4 and cant really list or photograph it all.
