  1. In this week's episode I discuss some rare and valuable Intellivision games. Many of these are late releases or homebrews. Any surprises? Let me know.
  2. Following @BSRSteve suggestion, I propose to collect into this new dedicated thread our very interesting exchanges about Intellivision variants. I believe variants could deserve a dedicated place where to deepen any possible aspect, as much as we like, when the outstanding www.intvfunhouse.com database doesn’t provide us with an immediate answer. May the Variants be with you!
  3. I'm starting this new thread for my Intellivision Flashback controller adapter cables. Yes, I've decided to start making these again after a long hiatus, since it seems a lot of folks missed out the first time around. As of writing this (September 3, 2021) I'm not quite ready to start, since I need to order more supplies. But things should get underway soon - I'd guess by the end of the month. For now the main purpose of this thread is to have a place to keep track of interest, and to let folks on Atari Age know the adapter cables are once again available. Please post here if you want to order some so I can get a rough idea how many I'll be making going forward. I have numerous old PMs and emails that were sent to the podcast email account the past couple years from people who wanted the adapters. At this point I don't know if those folks are still interested or not. I plan to follow up with as many as I can - and I'm going to try to keep it in the order the requests came in - but it's likely I may miss some people, so a post here would be very helpful. The price of the adapters is a little more than last time, due to supply cost increases (in particular, the parts needed for the Intellivision 1 adapters) and a little something for my time. This is a hobby after all, but I'm trying to keep the prices as reasonable as I can. Making the adapters is a time consuming process, especially the ones for the original console. Intellivision 1 Flashback Controller Adapters (for the original console, INTV, Radio Shack etc. variations with the "hard wired" controllers) These allow you to use Flashback controllers on your original model Intellivision, INTV System III, INTV Super Pro System, RCA Tandyvision, GTE/Sylvania Intellivision; basically any version of the Intellivision console that had the “hard wired” controllers. These are approximately 18 inches in length, with a male DB9-pin plug on one end, and a 9-pin ‘motherboard/SIPP’ connector on the other. To install these, you need to remove 6 screws from the bottom of your Intellivision console, take the top cover off, slide the original controller connectors off the motherboard pins, and slide the adapter cable connectors onto those same motherboard pins (the adapter wires are routed out the same holes as the original controller wires). Put the top back on, and you’re done. It takes about 20 minutes from start to finish. You can then plug in your Flashback controllers with ease. Here's a YouTube video from Grey Defender that shows the process in detail. The cost is $34/pair + shipping. These are only sold in pairs. Intellivision II / Sears Flashback Controller Adapters (for the Intellivision II and Sears consoles with the removable db9 connector controllers) These allow you to use Flashback controllers on your Intellivision II or Sears Super Video Arcade (the consoles that had the easily removable ‘DB9 plug’ connectors on the controllers). These are 6 foot extension/conversion cables, with a male DB9-pin plug on one end, and a female DB9-pin plug on the other. The cost is $17 per cable, or $32/pair + shipping. Please send me a PM here on Atari Age if you are interested in any of these cables. Include your shipping / address information, and preferably an email address, and I will get back to you with a total. Payment is via PayPal or Venmo. Credit cards (processed through my business - White Flag Computing) are also an option if you don't use PayPal or Venmo. You can also email [email protected] or [email protected] instead of sending a PM if you prefer. I won't be accepting payments until I get the supplies and start making the cables. Shipping is not included in the above prices. USA orders will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail. I can also ship First Class Mail in a padded mailer for a little bit less, but you will have to pay for the mailer. With some exceptions, International orders will be shipped via USPS International First Class (padded mailer - price varies depending on weight and destination).

  4. I have been keeping track of the progress with the Amico console and while I'm a bit disappointed with the announced delays, I'm still looking forward to it's release. The Intellivision was my first console and I grew up on all of the classic Intellivision titles. So when the Amico was first announced, I was very excited to see a new modern interpretation of the Intellivison console. One thing that keeps bugging me is I can't help but think that Intellivision Entertainment may have missed an opportunity in regard to embracing more of the past legacy of the Intellivision. Kind of a concept of bridging the legacy Intellivision cartridges and modern games that are downloaded. This could have been achieved by including a physical cartridge port to support original Intellivision games as well as the new one's being made. Plug in a original Intellivision cartridge, the Amico console would recognize the cart and load up the overlay on the Amico controllers. Or if due to copyright on some of the third party games for the overlays, make a joystick port for legacy Intellivision controllers. Play those legacy Intellivision games on your modern TV at 720P. This of course has already been done over on the ColecoVision side of things with the Phoenix console (of which I own). I can plug in my original ColecoVision games or load via SD card new ColecoVision games that are being made. So I'm hopeful that the Amico will get to volume release. The Intellivision is where my gaming all started.
  5. Does anyone here know how to get the Flintstones Typing Tutor to work on an emulator?
  6. I have the digital manual (The printed Elektronite manual will be different) for this game. The game is complete. We could begin to sell LTO Flash! ROMS for this game very soon. However, before we do that, I want to gauge the feelings of the Intellivision fan base on the following idea. Due to many reasons, mainly caused by the worldwide pandemic, we have not been able to box up and sell the 3 Kai Magazine games TNT Cowboy, Ninja Odyssey, and Anthropomorphic Force yet. The cost of printing has been prohibitive and frankly, our main focus has been on programming. In order for the developer to pay the rent and feed his children, most of our resources have been focused on keeping producing content rather than printing. I have an idea that will help us gain the needed capital to get the materials needed to 'properly' release the game. Pre-orders. Yes, I know that a certain individual somewhat wrecked the idea of pre-ordering a game in the Intellivision community. However, those pre-orders were for an incomplete or yet to be written game. This game is finished and ready to play. My proposal is that for people who pre-order the game, they will get a FREE LTO Flash! ROM encrypted for their personal LTO Flash! . Please be aware that I am not going to entertain any suggestions that the ROM be unprotected for use on emulators. Not going to happen. Sorry. We put far too much money into these games for them to end up on a ROM site. That being said, we would need about 100 pre-orders in order to have the box, manuals, overlays and stickers printed and to purchase cartridges for the games. My idea would be to collect the names of people willing to pre-order and then when we hit 100 copies, ask for payment and then get the materials printed and copies ready to ship ASAP. Please let me know your feelings below. Cost of the game would be $70 US plus shipping/PayPal fees which would vary depending on where the game is distributed. This has already been posted on facebook. Please do not express interest HERE if you've already expressed interest on the facebook Intellivision Invasion group. Here is a video of the game play for those who are not familiar with the game. Just because we are giving away a bonus LTO Flash! ROM does not mean that you are unable to pre-order and help make the release happen. The ROM is a 'bonus' not a requirement.
  7. In my latest episode I discuss some of the lost media for the Intellivision. Did I miss any? Please let me know. Thank you!
  8. Had a chance to inventory my extra games. All games have been cleaned and tested. Please send me a PM if you're interested in a title or five; I'll respond with pricing and if that works on your end, I'll take pictures so you know exactly what you would be receiving. All orders of three or more games will ship for free in the US! Here's what I've got available: Intellivision Sealed Astrosmash Las Vegas Poker & Blackjack NFL Football Complete in Box Armor Battle Astrosmash Beauty and the Beast (cart not working) Boxing Demon Attack (with Activision tray) Las Vegas Poker & Blackjack Las Vegas Poker & Blackjack (Sears) Major League Baseball NBA Basketball (x2) NFL Football PGA Golf SOLD Q*bert (thin-style box with top flap) Space Battle (x2) Star Strike Sub Hunt Tennis *NO GAME* Triple Action Utopia (missing manual) Cart Only Armor Battle (minor cosmetic damage) Microsurgeon Pac-Man (Atarisoft) SOLD Pitfall!

  10. Robot Army Pre-order Unfortunately, Left Turn Only has been unable to support Elektronite (or anyone else) due to an unusually heavy workload. Therefore, we've been unable to push certain titles forward to release status for the past number of months. This has put quite a bit of financial pressure on me personally and I'm in a dire situation with regards to my visa status. To put it bluntly, I need to raise money in a very short period of time. Unfortunately, sales of various games is impossible at this time. My solution is to offer a pre-order of 70 copies of ROBOT ARMY. This is the current situation: - The boxes are printed - The game is completed but still needs testing - The manual is in the process of being written and has not printed - The Sticker is designed and about to be printed - The overlay design is not yet complete. We feel that we could have each of these items finished within a month or two. HOWEVER, it is unclear WHEN the cartridges can be delivered by LTO. Therefore this is a NON SPECIFIED delivery date pre-order. In other words, it will be ready to ship when it is ready to ship. The last pre-order we did, a lot of people didn't understand that there was no actual promised date of delivery and they kept emailing asking when it was ready to be shipped, so I want that to be clear before you order. Here are the benefits of a pre-order. - You save $10 US per copy. Each copy will be sold for $80 US with shipping and PayPal fees included. - People who pre-order will be the FIRST people to get a copy of the game before anyone else. Note: Due to shortages of cartridges, it may be some time before more than the pre-order copies are available. (This does NOT mean that there will only ever be 70 copies of the game) The details: - There are No serial numbers and the order number has nothing to do with numbered copies. - The game will ship in a box this time with no exceptions. - The PayPal address will be my wife's PayPal address, so please do NOT send money without an email to [email protected] where payment details will be given. Note: If you need any references, I'm sure that there are people on Atari Age and Facebook that can vouch for me. Simply put, you pay for a game, you get a game. Period. Also, there MAY be another as of yet unannounced game that can be included in the pre-order in order to also save on shipping and effort to mail copies. Please stay tuned for more information. Please do not misunderstand. This does NOT mean that there are only going to be 70 copies of the game available. It only means that there is a limit to the number of pre-orders at a discount. Do not feel that you will 'miss out' if you don't pre-order the game. That is NOT the case. Thank you for your consideration and your support in this personally difficult situation.

  11. Summary The Aquarius Printer is a 40 column thermal printer that uses a one-way serial connection. It was marketed for the Mattel Aquarius computer and Intellivision's ECS add-on. Its character set is fixed to match the Aquarius computer's character set. Each character is printed as a pattern of 7x10 dots. It has a 3-way switch on the back to control which parts of the Aquarius character set it can print. The switch settings are labelled as Text, Mixed, and Graphics. Contrary to what the Graphics switch setting would typically imply, there is no known way to print arbitrary pixel / bitmap graphics. The printer has a 40 byte buffer for printable characters. When transmitting data, the printer will not print until either the buffer is full, or until a newline or formfeed byte is received. On the front, it has a Power button and a Paper advance button. The Paper advance button does not advance the paper by a fixed amount; instead it advances the paper for as long as the button is pressed. Unlike many printers of its era and later, it does not have a "test mode" that can be entered by pressing and holding a button while simultaneously turning the printer on. While its interface uses standard RS-232 voltages and signaling, its connectors are non-standard, using a 3.5mm mono audio jack and a 2.5mm mono audio jack. An adapter cable is necessary to connect to a computer. Wiring diagrams are available for building adapter cables for connecting to a PC using a 9-pin serial port or to the Intellivision ECS. Software needs to be set to 1200 baud, 8-bit, no parity, 2 stop bits, and use hardware flow control that is either RTS-CTS and/or DTR-DSR hardware flow control depending on the adapter cable's wiring. Internally, it uses the Olivetti PU-1840 print mechanism and thus can use paper from other printers that use the same print mechanism (example: Alphacom Sprinter 40 and VP42). The Olivetti PU-1840 is controlled by a Hitachi HD6801V0P microcontroller. Output Modes Text Mode Only bytes in the ASCII ranges are printable (hexadecimal bytes 20 through 7E) as well as byte 7F. All other bytes do nothing with the following 3 exceptions: 0A, 0D, and 0C. The hexadecimal bytes 0A and 0D are newlines. A pair of these bytes is considered 1 complete newline. Thus 1 complete newline can be any of the following pairs: 0D 0A, 0A 0D, 0A 0A, or 0D 0D. The printer advances the paper one line on the first byte and drops the 2nd byte, as long as the 2nd byte is a 0A or 0D. If other values are inserted between the 2 bytes of a complete newline, the printer will advance the paper 1 newline, print the inserted characters, and then advance the paper a 2nd time (ex: 0D 20 0D). There is an issue where if too many newlines are printed followed immediately by printable data, the printable data is lost. It is presumed that the CTS signal back to the PC is not being processed properly. The hexadecimal byte 0C is formfeed. It advances the paper to next 1 page boundary, with 1 page being approximately 59 lines. Previously printed data is considered part of the page. For example, if 30 lines of printable bytes were sent followed by a 0C, the paper would be advanced 29 lines. There is an issue where if data is transmitted too soon, i.e. before the formfeed has finished, that data may be incorrectly printed in the middle of the formfeed or may be lost. Graphics Mode All characters are printable, based on the Aquarius computer's character set. However, after power up or a short delay between printing sessions, the data needs to be preceded by 0A 0D before the graphics data can be sent. The first 2 bytes of 0A 0D are not printed, but do cause a newline to occur. Any 0A or 0D that appears after the initial 0A 0D pair are printable characters and are not newlines. However, data can NOT be continuously streamed to the printer indefinitely. Somewhere between 880 to 920 bytes, the printer stops responding. It is recommended that long streams of data be separated into smaller chunks with short delays. Mixed Mode The same as Graphics Mode except that 0A and 0D are newlines. These bytes behave the same as they do in Text Mode. Unlike Graphics Mode, there is no need to prepend the printable characters with 0A 0D. There is an issue where, if too many newlines are printed followed immediately by data, the data is lost. It is presumed that the CTS signal back to the PC is not being processed properly or that the printer needs a brief delay after asserting CTS and receiving more bytes. Construction Major components: Hitachi HD6801V0P CPU: Hitachi's version of a Motorola 6801 (enhanced instructions, 4KB ROM and 128 bytes RAM on-chip, serial, GPIO) Olivetti PU-1840 2P Printer mechanism: 280 horizontal dots, thermal paper Hitachi HA17555: a 555 timer chip, presumed to control the baud rate The plastic case has 4 parts: the top shell, bottom shell, paper compartment cover, and the back panel. The back panel contains the serial connectors and the Text/Mixed/Graphics switch. It appears the back panel and the internal space next to it was intended to be replaceable to support other interfaces (Centronics? DE-9 serial? Commodore 64?). The top shell front internally has space for 2 unused punch-outs in the plastic, each with mounting points in an internal metal bracket. Potentially, these could support addition buttons and/or lights. Wiring Adapters / Cables Here are schematics for building either a wiring adapter to connect the Aquarius printer directly to a PC's 9-pin serial port or to the Intellivision ECS. Note that similar schematics elsewhere don't allow a direct connection to a PC since they require additional adapters like null-modem cables. Aquarius Printer Adapter Cables v1.pdf
  12. UPDATE: The pre-order period for this game has expired, but you can still order it at full price (Shipment date yet to be determined) Except for the cartridges, everything else is ready (Manuals, boxes, covers, stickers, overlays) to begin the shipments to those of you who pre-ordered the game. The cartridge manufacturer is very busy and he has not given us an estimated date of when we should receive them. This means that the shipments (which should begin now) will be delayed and I will let you know as soon as we have a confirmed date. I am very sorry about this, but there are things that are outside of our hands/control. Thank you very much for your support and your patience. ______ Hello, I am Oscar Kenneth, from Kai Magazine Software (John Hassink, Mighel Angel Jimenez, Victor Sanchez and me), the developers of Ninja Odyssey,TNT Cowboy,A.F.: Anthropomorphic Force, A Tale of Dragons and Swords and Star Mercenary for Intellivision (Among many other games for other systems such as MSX2 and PC). I wish to present you our latest creation: The Sorrow of Gadhlan’ Thur is the first «Metroidvania» game for the Intellivision. The «Metroidvania» genre was born in the 90’s and it is tremendously popular these days. This side-view action RPG genre is a mixture of «Metroid» elements and «Calstlevania Symphony of the Night» elements where the player explores an open world and he finds objects which will grant him the ability to reach places he could not reach before, therefore expanding the bounds of the world he can explore. Usually the main character begins as a weak character and as the game advances he becomes stronger and has better equipment and new abilities that will allow him to explore further and to defeat stronger foes. The Sorrow of Gadhlan’ Thur for Intellivision includes all these elements and more. It is a carefully balanced mixture between Castlevania: Simon’s quest, Cadash, Zelda 2 and many other games. -Explore a huge open world and find powerful ancient relics. -Find new towns where you can save your progress and upgrade your equipment. -Explore dungeons and temples from a forgotten civilization. -Increase your fighting skills and abilities to engage smart and challenging enemies with an artificial intelligence never seen before on Intellivision. -Take advantage of the environment and sneak by your enemies by staying outside of their field of view. -Use throwing weapons to get rid of the most aggressive enemies before they can come close to you. Game Features: -Different animated backgrounds, giving a more immersive experience to the player. -Enemies and objects will remain active even when outside the view screen thus increasing the game-play area twice the screen area. (This feature is commonly found only on 16bit video-games since the late 80’s and 90’s). -Quickly and easily save your progress in the game cartridge. -High quality package with a very nice plastic box, a very high resolution cover and a big, high quality game manual. -Beautiful cover art by Miguel Angel Jimenez (as usual) -Nice and catchy in-game background music by John Hassink (as usual) -Incredible Intro music, amazingly synchronized to the events shown in the intro by Manuel Dopico -Story written by Victor Sanchez and me. Here you can see a video of the game from the beginning, and near the end of the video you can see 2 more advanced areas where the player has more items and abilities. The video does not look nearly as smooth as the real thing, so don’t get scared by the lack of smoothness here. Game-play video (NTSC colors): We started this project on summer 2019, after finishing and publishing the MSX2 version. This Intellivision version took twice the time and effort to complete than any other Intellivision game we made before. An incredible amount of hours and hours of optimization and coding went into this game. I did not stop optimizing the code and re-assigning the memory assets until we were able to include everything we wanted to include. This time, we will self publish this game with the help of the Intellivision community (you, guys ^_^) as we always did before in the MSX community and PC. This way the game can have as much development time as we want and we can deliver it with the package quality we think it deserves. The pre-order period starts today and will finish on January 21. The estimated Pre-order shipments should begin on February 2021. Shipments will be made in strict payment order: The first one who pays will be the first one to be shipped, and so on. Pre-ordering not only helps us but to you guys as well: All the Pre-order will have a 5 euro discount (55 Euro instead of 60 Euro). After the pre-order period finishes, the game will be priced at 60 Euro. Also, everyone who Pre-order this game will have his name or nickname (as you prefer) in the “Special Thanks” section of the game manual, so your contribution to help this game see the light will be immortalized ^_^ Shipment outside the European Union: 15,80 Euro (up to 3 games in the same package. More than 3 games: 21.80 Euro) Shipment to the European Union: 12,80 Euro (up to 3 games in the same package. More than 3 games: 15.75 Euro) Shipment to Spain: 6.10 Euro (up to 3 games in the same package. More than 3 games: 10,70 Euro) Pre-order link: https://kai-magazine-software.fwscart.com/The_Sorrow_of_Gadhlan_Thur_for_Intellivision_(Shipment_time_yet_to_be_determined)/p4398489_20901779.aspx Very Special thanks: Joe Zbiciak Oscar Toledo Arturo Ragozinni And you guys, for your support!
  13. Hi guys, I've got an Ultimate Intellivision Flashback, which is a Flashback that has the internals replaced with a Raspberry Pi, and have never had any problems with it. However, this week it suddenly started coming up with "No gamepad detected" when I boot it up. I'm just using the standard Intellivision Flashback controllers (as I always have done) so I don't understand why it's suddenly stopped recognising them. I've tried pressing 0 on the controllers to try to get them to register with it, but nothing happens. Does anyone know how I can get it to recognise my controllers again? I'm trying to take part in this season's Intellivision HSC so you can understand how urgent this is!! 😁 Edit: BTW, I've checked the internal connections and it doesn't look like anything's come loose. Any help will be much appreciated. Many thanks, gezkc
  14. As a kid I enjoyed playing games, and would say " Not bad, but it could also use this..." As a teen I loved to use a sector editor to give me 1,000,000 points of energy (originally like 10,000) in the Adventure International Star Trek 3.5 game. I'd change wording in games, error messages into more funny messages, etc. In more recent times I've learned about sprite hacking programs (Hack-o-matic), Hex fiend, and other fan based tools that have made some dreams of game changing and altering come true. (Thank you fellow fans!) Lots of great advice from those here in the Atariage community. This is a list of games that I have had fun altering to date. I would say I got interesting starting 2014, but then all of this helped me grow in the computer/video game hobby. OTHER HACKS AND TINKERING 1977 Dad had the Sol Terminal 20. Cool machine. Lots of Trek80 and Targ played. Also had a 2600 rom reader on the Sol and a Flash cart. 1978 We got a Sears Telegames system, which got us into Atari stuff. 1980 Sold newspaper subscriptions and got my own Atari VCS. 1981 Sold the VCS, got a Atari 400. Was going to get a Colecovision but when I saw Choplifter, Miner2049er, and Archon I decided to get a computer. Also learned about floppy disks and piracy! 1982 Later in this year got on my first computer BBS. Now I could get games over the phone! Whoo hoo! 1984 Attended Atari user meetings at the Dallas Infomart for the Dal-ACE Meetings. 1986 Dad had already upgraded the 400 to 48K, but installed a Atari 1400 keyboard from Radio Shack. 1989 Bear in mind, no Internet yet, really believed Atari was dead. Saw a friend’s Mac SE with Dark Castle and managed to score a Mac 128K. Later would upgrade that to 4 MB. 1993 I got onto the text Internet while in college computer labs. 1994 While in Guam, scored a Mac Plus. Lots of BBSing while on the island. 1995 I saw my first graphical Internet page on Mosiac. (Didn’t think it'd catch on.) Dad gives me my first Newton 110 when I returned from Guam. At first didn’t know what to do with it. First home Internet service through a BBS (Chrysalis BBS in Dallas) 1996 Picked up a Performa 550 (68030) later upgraded to 68040 with math co-processor. 1997 Picked up the amazing Newton 2000. 10x faster than my Newton 110. Played video! Started using graphical web browsers. (I was a slow adopter on that one.) 1999 Out of college, found out Atari user group was still around. Borrowed 520 ST (upgraded to 4 mb) for newsletter. Used Pagestream and had a laser printer! First year to attend the First Saturday SideWalk Sale. 2000 Managed to score an Atari TT030, Lynx, Atari Jaguar. Atari user group folds due to having to move from the Infomart that they had for nearly fifteen years. I learned of Bubsy Bobcat on the Jaguar! Continued using TT030 alongside Performa 550 for Internet. Featured in the Dallas Morning News: Atari Jaguar on front cover. I met this local Dallas Amiga User Group (MCCC) as they were also in the newspaper article. 2001 Got an IT job, used a Athlon 1 Ghz processor with Win98. Later used Linux. Still tinkered with retro computers (Atari XE and ST). Got my first DVD player as the spiritual successor to the Jaguar, the Nuon Samsung 2000. 2002 Scored two Macintosh G3 Powerbooks for my wife and I. I was back in the Mac world using OS 9. Attended the JagFest in St. Louis (while visiting wife's family). Saw the Korean version of the Nuon there as a contest prize. 2003 Attended JagFest in 2003 in Austin, TX with KevMos3. Joined Amiga User Group. They helped me get an Amiga 3000 working that I picked up at the 2002 JagFest. Even had a Ethernet card! 2004 Upgraded to OS X.3 on the Mac. 2005 Won the retro-challenge (like the first or second year of it) using nothing but an Atari 800 for one month. Figured out I didn’t need portable computing right before smart phones. My Newton 2000 and Duo Macs became used less. I was handed a G4 12" 800 mhz Powerbook. Beautiful little computer! Well I was handed it in parts and I managed to reassemble it. Tinkered heavy in the Dreamcast after a friend showed me that system. For the next five years lots of calling BBSs and Internet with beige Atari 800. Many discussions over Atariage and Atari IRC channels. 2006 Worked with Warerat on testing XL memory on the Atari 800. Lots of chatting at Atarinews.org on Tuesdays. Put an archive of the Dal-ACE disks online. 2008 Started the Bubsy Bobcat Fan Blog Testing of Atari800DC version 0.77 for the Dreamcast with Christian Groessler. Gauntlet by Donald R. Lebeau. Thing I like about Atariage are the authors that show up from time to time. Shortly after he showed had a High Score Club contest and Donald offered a signed copy of some game art. I blast every pixel I could to get that. As of 2019 the score still stands... GAUNTLETAK (Graphics:6 Sound:7 Playability:8 HSCR *8*) doctorclu : 1235025 [5-4] 2009 Binary hacking and uncompression of Bubsy rom for the Jaguar. Picked up the Lynx Flash Cart. 2010 Dial-up/Telnet out set up at the Prison Board BBS Was the first to come up with a shell for the Jaguar's Skunkboard. Also created a photoshop prank where I claimed to use the clear case from a Battlesphere Gold cartridge. Only did that joke for a few hours but the outrage was priceless. Got a Macbook Pro dual Core processor laptop in parts. Fixed it up. Hated it. Traded for 1.2 Ghz G4 12" laptop. Used that G4 through my time in Kuwait along with a 1.4 Ghz G4 Mac Mini. 2011 My first Android device, the Archos 32, and my first experience with Angry Birds! Picked up the device while in Kuwait. There was a certain joy of posting "Happy 2011" on a Atari BBS. Seemed surreal to myself and others. Did a photoshop of a Jaguar and CD for a more streamline appearance. I beat Cybermorph a second time. IRC chat more commonly used for Atari chat. 2012 Wondered if there was a way to piggy back memory on the ECS? Got my first Intel iMac 1.5 Ghz from a sidewalk sale. Bought the Incogneto boards from Candle while in Kuwait. Had at time the unbeatable 5200 HSC Gyruss score of 279,850. 2013 Installed one Incogneto board while snowed out of work for three days. The year I achived Star Commander Class 1 in Star Raiders. The year I beat Blue Max. 2014 BBSing Veered away from Atari 800 use after experiencing overheating problems after installing Incogneto board. Oh 04 January 2014 connected an Intellivision with ECS and Cuttle Cart 3 to a modem using the terminal program by Joe Zbiciak Video shows the end of the first known time for an Intellivision to call a BBS and records the second time such a thing had happened. "1979 Calling the Internet..." Later the Intellivision dialed to a BBS and then telneted to a shell account getting on Atariage and posting a message. Good times! The proto Dual Action Controller I was listening to the Intellivisionaries Podcast and they talked about how you cannot move and fire the disc with the same controller. Came up with the idea of put both mylar underlays in the same controller but cancelling out the upper or lower part of the underlays. Originally Intellivision 2 controllers were used which proved the point though a bit stiff. When the Intellivision Flashback came out however, well designed thin controllers worked quite well with this concept as Nurmix of the Intellivisionaries podcast would find out. Nurmix asked a few questions on the tinkering and then later tried the idea on the newer controllers and viola!! The research was later referenced by Nurmix in his dual-action controller thread. Nurmix converted Flashback controllers to the Dual-Action design, and the rest is history. So now many have had more fun at playing Night Stalker, Tron Deadly Discs, and AD&D thanks to my initial tinkering. Another fun addition, and first, I got to add to the Intellivision legacy. Battlestar Galactica (Intellivision) [Hack of Space Battle] Long before I was sprite hacking, I was hex and text hacking. This was a simple hack that taught me that as long as I stayed within the original character count given, you could hack information in a rom and it not break. Oh, and don't write over crucial instructions while you are doing it. Picked up a Amiga 500 from a friend. Fixed it up to 8 MB and SD card slot. Then got a Amiga 1200. 2015 Hacked an Atari 400 keyboard to an Atari 800. Created the sounds for Joust and Moon Patrol which CyranoJ ported from the Atari ST to the Atari Jaguar. Made me extremely happy as those are my favorite arcade titles, and CJ was and is great to work with. Picked up a Macbook Air 1.8 Ghz from a friend. (What I'm using to write this.) 2016 Picked up a 27" iMac 2.7 Ghz 32 GB RAM from a friend. Set up Internet server on the Newton 2000 for a while. Bubsy Fan Blog interviews Bubsy creator Michael Berlyn. Got the Atari Flashback Portable from Atgames that gets me back into the Atari 2600. Helped in testing hundreds of games to see what is compatible with the SD card slot. Then worked with fan hackers to get dozens more tuned up and working. 2017 Bubsy Kitt'N Kaboodle (Atari 2600) [Hack of Fast Eddie] This was the one that started it all. "Wouldn't it be fun to have Bubsy on my Atari Flashback Portable..." was the original idea. The handy tool of Hack-O-Matic was found, I had some guidance from fellow sprite hacker and friend Kevin, and off I went on adventures. Versions for the Atari 800, 5200, Vic 20, and Commodore 64 have also been hacked. And this has had the fun of being played in alpha versions on Atari 2600 emulators on the Atari Jaguar and Nuon as well. This game also turned into an unofficial way to advertise the release of the newest Bubsy game, the Woolies Strike Back. Actually helped get them a few more sales. Moon Patrol (Atari 2600) Hacking an already amazing hack that looked more like the Arcade, detail was given to make more arcade accurate enemies and eventually a buggy with three rolling wheels. During the summer and fall I helped on the Oregon Trail port to the Intellivision. Actually came up with the name "Oregon Bound" which I understand was later used for the TI port. Helped come up with some of the mini games and sound and music ideas for some segments. Was working with everyone on this game. Was also a lot of fun working with a group of people on the game AstroStorm programmed by Sporadic. I loved how the game had a very utility look and feel to the ship. And as I was playing said "wouldn't it be nice if we had ways to store powerups". Sporadic liked the idea and added that to his game. Got the Sega Flashback Portable from Atgames, causing me to get into some tinkering on Sega Genesis. To date, Bubsy Bobcat Fan Blog on Atariage has had 175,398 visitors. Still call computer BBSs and write a blog on that as well. And the MCCC Amiga user group in the Dallas/Fort Worth, TX area is still active with live YouTube broadcasts every month. 2018 Virtual VCS (Atari 2600 emulator for the Atari Jaguar) Pasting in game rom images into a program just thought to be a demo and finding some games that actually worked! Atari 800 emulator (Nuon) Same trick as above, replacing a built in game image in a burnable disc image with another game image. Got Return of Heracles to come up, though it doesn't play very far. Still fun to see that much. Battlestar Galactica (Atari 2600) [Hack of Space Attack] The following was Inspired by reading up on Space Battle for the Intellivision and after discovering that Space Attack for the Atari VCS works on the VCS emulator for the Jaguar. From that point on, the game was hacked to look and feel more like the show it was supposed to be based on in the first place: Battlestar Galactica. So this has changes in color to the enemy fire, the background color, the color the screen flashes when you ship explodes, the color of the squadrons, and of course sprites. Took a bit to track all that down. Miner 2049er (Atari 2600) [Hack of Miner 2049er and Miner 2049er II] Played first on the Retron 77 as part of a collection, I found the initial game had a surprising amount of detail of the Atari 800 version for a Atari 2600 game. But the character sprite didn't even have Bounty Bob's hat. So sprites were altered based on the Atari 800 version of Miner 2049er. Buck Rogers in the 25th Century (Atari 2600) [Hack of Buck Rogers: Planet of Zoom] Recently played Buck Rogers on the Retron 77 and enjoyed it, but said to myself the same thing I've said over the years "If only Buck Rogers had a Thunderfighter like in the 1980s TV show. OH WAIT... I sprite hack now!" I'll try to make other adjustments, but so far the fonts and the ship are designed to match the show with Gil Gerard. Shame Twiki can't make an appearance. Alien Visitors Are Our Friends (Atari 2600) [Hack of Cosmic Ark] This fun project was started on a Battlestar Galactica (Space Attack hack) thread by Marcallie when he said: "This is great! Now go re-theme Cosmic Ark as V: The Final Battle." > Interesting. The Visitors collect humans while Earth forces try to stop you from eating their population? "Exactly! It would be very cool to play as the bad guys for once, right?" Actually sounded like a fun idea so I spent some time giving this more of a "V" the sci-fi series feel. Scraper Caper (Atari 2600) [Hack of Fire Fighter] Originally wanted to hack Towering Inferno but the characters were not much to work with. Fire Fighter had better character but too easy of a game. Anyway, just wanted to make some reality of the Bounty Bob game (Scraper Caper) that was advertised but never finished. But at least now we have Bounty Bob's nemesis, Yukon Yohan, in a game. Miner 2049er (Atari 800/5200) - Miner animations of TIX So Bounty Bob is a Canadian Mountie, but on the game art he is a Miner. Well TIX drew up new miner animations and I looked into making them a reality. I think many liked the end result, though I am partial to Bounty Bob being a Mountie. Moon Patrol (Atari 800/5200) - Working back and forth with TIX, EnderDude, Level 42, and a few others. Before it is all done we were able to modify the sprites, and change most of the colors. We had fun creating our own buggy designs. Below was a design I came up with which I thought matched the arcade best. To wrap up the year I released a version of VirtualVCS that had three version of Space Battle, Sky Diver, AstroBlast, and Space Chase. The most notable was Space Battle and the Battlestar Galactica Hack (fully working) and Sky Diver (also fully working). And with that, I played the first ever two player 2600 game on a Atari Jaguar against KevMos3 when he was in town 2019 ----------------------------------------------------------- I was surprised to see my name was still on the 5200 HSC listing for all time high scores. Been a while since I played the 5200 or any High Score Club for that matter. I figure someone will beat my scores so I will post these now to remember them.

Battlezone 2000. doctorclu (180,600) For the Atari 2600 there is a huge pdf document. there I was for Spy Hunter June 28, 2009 for 193,200 I didn't have any scores in the 7800 HSC And for the Atari Jaguar as of 2010 I had a lot of the high scores, but now one remains, my epic gaming on Pitfall! PITFALL: THE MAYAN ADVENTURE [A]. Atardi & Doctor Clu (TIED) - 999,999 (Link). (Crazy that the score flips over.) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- More work on 2600 Buck Rogers. Created the sound effects for Revenge of Doh which was ported by CyranoJ from the Atari ST to Atari Jaguar. February 25, 2019 Two hacks, the 2600 Moon Patrol (black buggy) with three moving wheels and the 2600 Miner 2049er are nominated for Best Game Hack of 2018. Moon Patrol lands 2nd place with Miner 2049er landing 1st place. Rented a Mountie costume from Norcostco Texas Costume rental for the thank you from Bounty Bob himself. Was fun working with Cimmerian and the ZeroPage HomeBrew crew on this first year of the Atari Awards. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- March 28, 2019 People requested a Fast Eddie hack with my own character, so a version with my fursona "Buster the BBSing Bobtail" was created. All prizes combined contain a message, as I write this in December 2019 no one has figured it out yet. Unlike the previous Bubsy version, Buster was designed to run on his hind legs, and jump, more like a cat would. Starting to think a cat would never smile though. I think Garfield pegged that one. July 2019 - My signature was a great way to revisit my hacks. I decided today to kull it back, but wanted to place this here in remembrance in the fun that was 2018-2019 Atari 2600 Sprite Hacks Battlestar Galactica, Buck Rogers, Moon Patrol, "V" Miner 2049er, Scraper Caper, Bubsy: Kitt'N Kaboodle, Buster Aided BSG.

(probably the closest to the Atari 800 sprite yet). In the future I still hope to combine the levels of Miner 2049er Volumes 1 & 2 to make one solid game with 6 levels! And maybe hack it further to bring it closer to the 10 levels of the Atari 800 version. September 19, 2019- So ClassicGamer74 reached out to me to help hack the Smurf Rescue game to the Moomin character since his daughter likes the Moomins. What are the Moomins? A popular Italian Anime is best I can tell. Watched a little bit of it, pretty trippy. Working on the game was fun changing this and that to give it more of a Moomin feel and less of a Smurf feel. Threw a wrench into the music so while it may not play a Moomin tune, at least it's not the Smurf's. ClassicGamer74 got a cart printed for his daughter, she loved it, and well, that is all that matters here. And ClassGamer74 learned some things about sprite hacking. Good times. November 9, 2019 Jamcat Reloaded came up with a great idea for a Battlestar Galactica game using the Star Trek Simulator Game by SEGA. March 28th I was able to hack the music and I guess my heart hasn't been into other music hacks because I have not been able to hack music since. Over time I quietly hacked more and more elements of the game to give it the classic Battlestar feel. Change of radar screen to a green field, hacking the triangle to something that looked more like a Viper, the font of the numbers, etc. The intent was to wait till February after the Zero Page Awards to give Jamcat a chance to enter his hack, but then hacks where thrown out of the Zero Page awards. With that, I went ahead and released the added hacks I made to Jamcat's idea. To date, those have not been overly downloaded, but that's fine, it's one hack I enjoy playing over and over again. And flying the ship like a Viper has made for some GREAT scores at the Free Play Arcade when I play the Star Trek Arcade game! November 21, 2019 TIX releases the Moon Patrol Redux edition for the 5200 (and Atari Computer I'm sure). The guy has been all over the place hacking 8-bit games since I helped show him what was possible with Miner 2049er and Moon Patrol last year. Was really cool to see the background updated to be more like the arcade, along with everything else. Got a chuckle out of seeing that. December 30, 2019- During this year worked to complete the Dal-Ace Newsletter Archive. Dal-ACE was a big part of my childhood, though I only attended the meetings a handful of times. Was something that I wanted to help preserve. Current status of the archive: 1983 - 1 out of 12 months. Oct. 1984 - 6 out of 12 months. Apr-May-Jun-Jul-Sep-Nov 1985 - 11 out of 12 months (All but December) 1986 - 6 out of 12 months. Feb-Apr-May-Jun-Aug-Sep 1987 - 7 out of 12 months.

Buyers outside the usa and canada will be required to pay by gift and may then choose any shipping method they desire. At this time we will limit purchase to 1 of each style set per person until interest is determined. These are created as a collectable but are fully functional on all models besides the intellivision 2. We ask that you use them with care. ***There will be no warranty on them for usage.*** But they should be fine if taken good care of and not abused. They will come in a custom display box with info card on the back that is individually numbered. They have 2 ways to be used. They have a removable arcade style ball that can be unscrewed and replaced with a cap. With the cap on they are the exact specs of the original sticklers! They are really quite beautiful and we are very happy with them. This was a combined project my son and i did over the summer. He is 20 and currently studying phisics and engineering at university of illinois. He is very gifted at being able to engineer these so well, and my design ability along with both of our art abilities made for a great father son project to celebrate 40 years of intellivision! We have had alot of fun making them together and we hope you all enjoy them as much as we do! I have played intellivision since about 1981 and continuously collected videogames for many systems since about 1983. My son was introduced to the intellivision before he was even 2 years old back in about 2000. We loved playing uthopia together as well as shark shark and snafu. It helped give him a lifelong love of classic gaming! Anyway please post interest in this thread. If you want 1 or 2 sets, etc. If you would like to hopefully have a certain number or just the lowest or dont care you can mention that too. Numbers 5 and under and #40 are currently reserved. If you would like more than 2 sets please state that as well, but no promises on that. We will go off this thread for first come first serve after vcfmw is over. These are alot of work to make and we will not ask for funds until your set is ready to go. If you dont reply and pay at that time we will go on to the next interested party. Happy Sunday and happy 40th birthday to our beloved Intellivision!!!!!
  16. Hey! New here I have just started learning intybasic from Oscar's book, and I do have a basic understanding of Basic programming. In the examples folder for IntyBasic, I was trying to decipher how intyPak works. Just wondering if someone can break down for me what exactly this code is doing? IF dir = 0 THEN #c = PEEK($0201+X1/8+Y1/8*20):IF #c <> (BG06+FG_YELLOW) AND #c <> 0 THEN dir = 4 IF dir = 1 THEN #c = PEEK($01FF+X1/8+Y1/8*20):IF #c <> (BG06+FG_YELLOW) AND #c <> 0 THEN dir = 4 IF dir = 2 THEN #c = PEEK($01EC+X1/8+Y1/8*20):IF #c <> (BG06+FG_YELLOW) AND #c <> 0 THEN dir = 4 IF dir = 3 THEN #c = PEEK($0214+X1/8+Y1/8*20):IF #c <> (BG06+FG_YELLOW) AND #c <> 0 THEN dir = 4 Thanks for any help! Brian
  17. Though I've posted about my channel and videos before, I figured keeping a central place in one thread would make more since. While I have done more videos than I will likely ever post in here, I thought it would be good to start off with my 40th official video for my channel and to start off April right. I present my unboxing and game play review for the Neo Games home-brew release of the limited boxed edition of Spies in the Night for the Atari 2600! Enjoy and thank you for watching!

  19. I've been refurbishing old consoles and building a new retro gaming center for myself, this year. I figured I would dump the photos here from the past few months so I don't lose them. It all started when I found this really nice old Sylvania flatsceen TV that is still old enough to not be widesreen ($7 Goodwill). After that, it was a matter of cleaning dust and grime off the old consoles, which had been sitting dormant on bookcase shelves, and diagnosing which controllers worked, and which were defective. At this point, my Atari controllers were stuttering or intermittently unresponsive. The Atari was still dusty, and lots of cartridges really needed to be jiggered around to get them to work. Without any cleaning for this, the problem resolved on its own after some use swapping cartridges on the console over a few weeks. The Intellivision II functioned, but still needs serious jiggering to get cartridges to load, but none of them were found to be dead. The playstation 2 works beautifully, but none of my memory cards were recognized. Some of the controllers turned out to be broken, especially the "clear red plastic" one seen plugged in here. I found a nice woodgrain cabinet for a stand at goodwill for 5 bucks, and used an old xetec Amiga hard drive casing for the stand to raise the TV up a bit. Next, I took apart the 2 sets of Atari paddles, which suffered from "Jitter," and cleaned them. Reassembled after cleaning the residue and grease with alcohol and swabs, they worked perfectly. The next challenge was to open up both joysticks, remove the clear adhesive over the boards, clean them, and reassemble with packing tape over the boards. Both of them worked very well, aside from an issue with one of them: The cable plastic seemed pretty stiff, and would lose control if it was not held in a certain position - ultimately a small tug downwards of the connector end plugged into the back of the console got whatever connections were loose to connect. But, this one went into my "museum" for non-use, ultimately. Next, I took apart the console and cleaned the case. I found three areas on the RF cable where the plasic cord exterior had torn, but it seems that the cable is still working perfectly, so a little electrical tape was wrapped around the frayed parts to protect them. Ultimately, I want to replace the cord and fix the connectors in the B&W switch, and get a second Atari joystick, but this is good enough for now. After the next photo was taken, I popped the caps off the paddles and cleaned them some more. Next, I identified two playstation controllers that still functioned, though only one PS2 dualshock controlled worked, so a PS1 controller was borrowed from the old console which is in my "museum." I added a VCR to the mix, running the PS2 through that. Finally, I set up a spare tablet to be able to quicky hit a website with atari manuals on it, for reference if needed, and bought myself a Harmony Cartridge for the Atari for loading games from my organized rom library on SD card, which I continue to explore and learn about. My Atari Keyboard Controllers needed no maintenance - so they will be nice to have for Star Raiders. Finally, the Commodore 128 (64) computer and accompanying Commodore 1571 (Disk Drive) were set up as part of my functioning retro gaming center. It's still going to need some refurbishing to get it all cleaned up and "retro-brighted", with the 128 boot not functioning, lots of keys lacking spring or being loose, and the old RF video cable lacking proper RF shielding to prevent interference. But, it functions and I have access to all my old files and games. This was my primary computer literally from like 1985-1998. I'm making good on my "perpertual student" label for myself. Pacing myself, but aside from some repairs on this and the Atari, I still have two Commdore 64's and an Amiga 500 that will need to come back to life. The Amiga will need cleaning and retrobrighting, keyboard fixes, proper video cable, and a boot disk. The 64's with need to have their problem diagnosed. I have a Timex Sinclair 2068 with no cables, and an Atari 5200 that has a rusted end to it's RF (Power?? WTF) cable, which sparks when turned on. My playstation 1 is probably fine, but with the PS2, there's no rush on that. I'm definitely going to need a proper belkin surge protector instead of these two cheapo power strips. Projects for much later.

  22. In today's episode I begin my unit on the Intellivision. I discuss more games that are exclusive to this game system. What game or games do you feel would would not have worked for any other game system before or since? What is your favorite INT game?
  23. Hey all. I am struggling with the right Keyboard Hackfile needed to run with jzIntv on Windows 10. I pulled a working controller and Nurmix converter cable from my Intellivision II and connected to a Vision-Daptor. Windows does detect it, but it does not like the NE direction for some reason. When I launch jzIntv, the side buttons map to East and West direction, no keys register properly. I tried Swords and Serpents, Cloudy Mountain,Star Strike, Stunt Cycle. The keys are all jacked up. So I think that part of my problem is a bad key hackfile... Can anyone share a working version? I did try to get something from https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/5035/jzintv-intellivision-hackfile-not-working/14and http://www.intellivision.us/intvgames/interface/hackfile.cfg Thanks.
  24. Hi there, I am trying to get a controller to work properly. I cut the cord and attempted to solder the wires on to the connector and being inexperienced I didn't do a very good job. Any way to fix this problem any easier?
