  1. Fest 99/4ATX will be Friday-Sunday Aug 9-11, 2019 in Austin, TX. All are welcome. The main activity will be sharing what we know about the TI-99/4A computer, demonstrating projects and new products, and so on. Fixing broken 4As, soldering kits, and programming are all likely to happen. It really depends on what you want to do! The venue will be an air-conditioned classroom, with tables, whiteboard, and two large screens, at ATX Hackerspace on 9700 Dessau Rd. There is a lounge/kitchen/eating area. (There will be guided tours of members-only areas like electronics lab, laser cutter and 3D printing.) If anyone wants to do a presentation/stream, you would write that on the Google sheets schedule. Outside of the agenda, we will share about things TI, much like Chi-Friday. Set up your gear, gather in small groups, share, learn, fix things. The only charge will be $10 for official registration, which includes a raffle ticket, badge, snacks and drinks. Otherwise it is open for casual observers (I would expect others from the hackerspace and the local C-64 group.) For Saturday food, we are putting together a group order for Cheko's breakfast tacos (a few dollars) and County Line BBQ ($15 each person). Details: Venue: ATX Hackerspace on 9700 Dessau Rd. Has air conditioned classroom, a lounge/kitchen, and wi-fi. Guided tours of electronics/laser/shop/3D printing. Format: BarCamp style. Attendees can announce a presentation in the classroom, otherwise free form. Security: we can put gear in a locked room overnight. The building is keyed entry. The classroom has doors but does not lock. Hardware: I can provide stock P-Boxes, 4A consoles, monitors so you can travel lighter. Electronics lab available. Lodging: Super 8 near ATXHS is as low as $58. Marriot $118. There are a lot of options. Food: Saturday: Breakfast Tacos. Lunch: barbecue delivery. Dinner: trip to Chuy's (Tex-Mex.)

  2. - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Oklahoma's Retro Video Game Exhibition Returns TULSA, OK (April 5, 2013) – Classic video games will return from history, as mid-America's one and only OVGE returns for the tenth Oklahoma Video Game Exhibition! On September 21, 2013 video game collectors and enthusiasts from Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, and even further will travel together to the Spirit Bank Event Center in Tulsa to celebrate the history, hobby, collecting, and entertainment of the video gaming industry. “Before the OVGE, people from the surrounding states had to travel across the country for events such as this,” said Jesse Hardesty, founder and organizer of the OVGE. "And since the OVGE first began back in September of 2003, we have inspired many other retro conventions in the surrounding areas." In 1972, the release of the Odyssey by Magnavox, the first multi-video game system for the home was a new technological curiosity. Seven years later in 1977, Atari released the 2600VCS and both created and changed home entertainment forever and the beginning of a new industry! Then, in the year of 1983 an overflow of poor games and even poorer sales resulted in the great crash of the video game industry. A crash that wouldn't heal until 1985, with the introduction of the Nintendo Entertainment System, video game sales and popularity have flourished ever since! Still, many video game players find themselves returning to classic video games. With the advanced high definition graphics and motion control of today’s video games, why are so many people fascinated with the classics? “Even though modern game systems have amazing graphics and sound, the most important aspect of any video game is that it actually be fun to play. Because classic game systems, like the Atari 2600, had very simple graphics, game designers had to focus on the game-play. Those same games that were fun in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s are still just as much fun today,” stated Albert Yarusso, modern video game programmer and co-founder of AtariAge.com. It is this simple pick up and play philosophy that makes for quick gaming and is a philosophy still active today with the rise of mobile games and powerful portable handheld gaming systems. "With video gaming being today’s main form of home entertainment, the history behind it should not be forgotten,” said Hardesty. “The Oklahoma Video Game Exhibition provides today's youth and their parents a chance to visit and interact with that past." This year, some of the proceeds from OVGE will benefit the Autism Center of Tulsa a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of those affected by autism, a series of spectrum neurological disorders now being diagnosed in approximately one in every eighty-eight births in the United States alone. Numerous video game systems, computers, and arcade machines, will be set up for the public to play plus tournaments and door prizes! Vendors and exhibitors will have memorabilia on display with most items for purchase. Doors will open to the public at 9:00 a.m. and close at 5:00 p.m. Cost of admission for ages eight and above is $5 dollars at the door. The OVGE is organized by gaming enthusiasts who want to share their hobby and passion for classic and modern video games with the public.

  4. Hey Gang, ZAPCON is back! It's going down April 12-13th once again at the Renaissance Phoenix Downtown Hotel. Tons of games set to free-play! Films! Seminars! Tournaments! Vendors! It's mostly the same deal as last year: Bring a game, get a weekend pass. Bring 2 games, get 2 weekend passes, etc. Game contributors also get in an hour early, and get an exclusive badge that non-contributors will be envious of. If you're interested in bringing games PM me your real name, phone number, and what (fully functional) pins or arcade games you'd like to bring. Unfortunately due to budget constraints we will not be doing game pick-ups this year. I am, however going to facilitate people going in 2-3 ways on rental trucks or carpooling. Send me your name, phone number and what part of town you're in, and I'll try to connect you with like minded people in your area. Also, if you have a truck or trailer with room to spare and you don't mind going a little out of your way, please let me know. ZAPCON needs you! We're also looking for vendors, sponsors and advertisers, so if you have something to sell or you want to get your name out there, PM me for details. With all your help we can make ZAPCON bigger and better than last year… Spread the word! More info at zapcon.com

  9. I represent a group that is seriously looking into putting together a California Extreme style (though smaller) arcade & pinball convention in Phoenix, AZ. We already host an annual con (KoL Con) and we've been consulting with Dann Frank, one of the administrators of the Wild West Pinball Convention that took place back in the 90s, so we've got the chops to make this happen. Right now we're putting out feelers to see who'd be interested in attending, but more importantly who'd be willing to put up some of their pinball and/or arcade games for a weekend. Please let me know if you're interested and if so, how many games you could conceivably bring. Thanks, and If you know any other collectors please spread the word. Wes
  10. The next RetroGameCon date was announced - Saturday, November 14. This year's event will be held at the NY State Fair in the Center of Progress building. Which means bigger event with more vendors, more activities, and more tournaments. This year they're adding an Artist Alley, and still have a number of panels. Free parking is a plus for this year's event as well. Follow the updates at www.facebook.com/retrogamecon Or visit the website www.retrogamecon.com for more details.
  11. I'm not sure how well known Free Play Orlando is in the retro game community, but they have an event coming up in November that I'm thinking of attending. Since I live about 10-15 minutes away, it might be worth $25/$30 + $5 parking to check it out for 1 day. Attending as a vendor isn't all that expensive ($175 for an 8-foot table + internet + power outlet + 2 weekend passes). It might be fun to set up an upgraded ColecoVision Flashback unit as well as a Coleco ADAM or ColecoVision + Super Game Module and show off some of the newer releases. From the website: About Free Play Florida Free Play Florida 2017 is an exciting three day event that encompasses a complete Pinball, Arcade, and Console gaming experience. This November 17th thru the 19th, 2017 Free Play Florida is being held at the beautiful Doubletree Sea World by Hilton right off I-4 and International Drive. All of your classic and current pinball and arcade games will be on display for you to play, join the International Flipper Pinball Association (IFPA) sanctioned pinball tournament and compete with the best in the state of Florida, , sit in on our speaker panels that include industry icons, and visit our valued vendors selling parts, memorabilia, and some of the coolest themed art on the planet! http://wp.freeplayflorida.com/?page_id=1595 Vendor/Sponsor Information http://wp.freeplayflorida.com/?page_id=1480
