  1. 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.
  2. With 40 years of our favorite system we have made something very special to commemorate this milestone! THE INTELLIVISION 40TH ANNIVERSARY CUSTOM BALL KNOB STICKLER SET!!! These will be made in a numbered limited edition of 40 sets. They will debut next weekend for show and sales at the Vintage Computer Festival Mid West #14. On September 14&15 in Elmhurst Illinois: http://vcfmw.org/index.html The first small handul of sets will be available there for sale at a slightly discounted price (also no shipping costs obviously. There will also be 1 special unique vcfmw edition which will be donated to the festivals fund raising auction. This will be a 1 of a kind set. The auction takes donations to fund this wonderful show. The show is completely free to the public and this auction helps keep the show going. I highly recommend coming to the show if you have never been there and live anywhere near the chicago area! A few of us atariagers are there every year! These will be available otherwise in 2 versions. The original style (brown and brass): And the spaceage style (red and silver): 1 set will be $54.95 plus shipping to your area. 2 sets will be $99.95 plus shipping to you area. Gift payments by paypal will be preferred. These will ship by cheapest method with tracking info provided. 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!!!!!
  3. I picked up a minty Sears Super Video Arcade last month and have been enjoying it a lot. Looking to build a collection, including trying to get my hands on all of the Sears-branded "Super Video Arcade" titles. Here are the ones I'm still looking for, CIB: Backgammon Snafu If you've got one or more to sell, please send me a PM and we'll see what we can put together. Thanks!
  4. 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!
  5. Looking to purchase the Atarisoft version of Pac-Man for the Intellivision, complete in box (stock image below for reference). If anyone has one they'd be willing to part with, please send me a PM. Thanks!
  6. I know, I know, I said the last update was the final one. But I came across some manuals I forgot I had. Without further ado: Dig Dug for Intellivision (HTF because it was released late in the Intellivision's life cycle, when INTV Corporation was running the show, largely through mail order) Missile Command for Atari XE Game System (HTF manual since it was never available at retail; the manual was only included with the purchase of an Atari XE Game System since the game was built-in to the console itself) Moonvasion for TI-99/4A (HTF because Moonbeam Software was an indy game development company and their distribution was not all that impressive) Please send me a PM with interest and I would be happy to get pics and prices your way. Thanks.
  7. Available to purchase now for the Mattel Intellivision, ROM versions of the arcade games Cosmic Avenger and Wizard of Wor. The price for both ROM's is $25 plus fees. The ROM files are for use only with the LTO Flash and will be locked to your LTO cart specifically. Sorry but the ROMs cannot be used with emulators or any other flashcart for the Intellivision. Please, email me at TrekMD[at]gmail[dot]com and I'll send you instructions for payment. A PDF Manual for each game will also be included. Wizard of Wor Welcome to the mystical kingdom of Wor! You have been placed in command of an elite squadron of Worriors assigned the task of outwitting the sinister Wizard of Wor! As you descend into his diabolical dungeons, you will encounter deadly Worlings and maybe even the Wizard himself! Your only weapons are your trusty laser, your radar scanner, and your ability and cunning. You will need them all as you attempt to beat the Wizard and earn the title of Worlord! Prepare now, and then let the battle begin! Cosmic Avenger Coleco’s exciting COMSIC AVENGER™ game puts you in control of a space fighter battling a planet full of aliens. Fly your fighter over domed cities, across open plains, and through underwater caverns, firing missiles and dropping bombs on enemy installations and targets. But beware! The aliens are not defenseless. UFOs, tanks, and submarines shoot at you, bombs fall from above, and missiles rise from below and track your every move. Advance through the alien terrain, dodging the relentless enemy assaults, and eventually you’ll reach the secret station that you must destroy. Fire, dodge, and fire again! How long can you survive flying above the surface of this dangerous alien planet?
  8. Here we have an Intellivision Console Bundle Complete In Original Box with 5 games. Everything has been fully tested and works great. Includes all original cables. All games are complete in box except for Tron Maze-a-Tron, which is missing the manual and one of the overlays and has masking tape all around the outside of the box. The console is in fantastic shape. The faceplates have very few scratches on them, something that is fairly uncommon to see - they're usually all scratched up in my experience. I tried to point out the couple of imperfections I noticed on the faceplates with zoomed in pics. The box is pretty worn but holds its shape well. A hairdryer might be able to get that tape off without scarring the box but I haven't tried that myself. One of the box ends is still factory sealed and that end still has the styrofoam insert, too. Here is everything that comes in the bundle: - Intellivision Console (power supply & cord is built-in) - Original Console Box - AV cable (will need a separate, cheap RF adapter to connect to the coaxial input of more modern TVs) - RF switchbox (rendered mostly useless these days) - Console Manual - Intellivision ad/booklet - Five games: Bowling, NFL Football, Space Armada, Space Battle and Tron Maze-a-Tron Please see pictures for exact condition of everything. Looking for $120 plus shipping. Please PM me to purchase. Thanks!
  9. A conversation on the ColecoVision forum has taken an interesting turn: AA member grips03 has expressed interested in creating an adapter that would allow 9-pin Atari controllers to be used on the Sears Super Video Arcade and Inty II. He is asking what the new controller should look like. He can hack an existing PCB or even create a new one. What would you like to see? Here's a link to the beginning of the Intellivision discussion: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/210993-using-sega-controllers-with-colecovision/page__st__25?do=findComment&comment=2733002
  10. 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. Jun-Jul-Aug-Sep-Oct-Nov-Dec 2020 July - Bubsy: Fractured Furry Tales mystery room solved. August - Bubsy: Kitt'N Kaboodle for the 2600 gets an update
  11. I am looking for a functioning Intellivision console. I'm not really concerned about games, just that the console has been tested and works. And if you know how to use it on a modern tv I'd appreciate the help. If there are some games with it, that would be great. We can negotiate price. Thank you!
  12. Hello folks! This video shows the upcoming Mattel Intellivision game “A Tale of Dragons and Swords” developed by Kai Magazine, published by Elektronite and based on an idea of Valter Prette. In this video you can see the intro, six minutes of uninterrupted game-play and after that, you can see several levels of the dungeon, enemies and key elements of the game. At the end of the video you can see an epic fight against a huge dragon: The game is finished and in the beta-testing process. This game features different difficulty levels, in-cartridge game save, different graphics and musical tracks for the dungeons, many multi-coloured enemies, 99 levels of experience for the player/character, shops, magic items, new abilities, 3 endings and much more, all in a big capacity cartridge (the game is 200Kb aprox). The musical tracks are composed by John Hassink (TNT cowboy, Antropomorphic Force) and the cover is illustrated by Miguel Angel Jimenez (TNT cowboy, Antropomorphic Force). We hope you like it!
  13. I bought directly from Nurmix FB control to INTV 1 long cord adapters. I heard the FB has all the circuits right but confused pin numbering conventions somewhere, therefore making a mirror image pin map. If that's true, then INTV 2 and INTV FB adapters can be made with this middle adapter: A1 F5 A2 F5 A3 F3 A4. F2 A5. F1 A6. F9 A7. F8 A8. F7 A9. F6 And since At Games has consistently made this mistake, then this would be a universal x original to x flashback adapter Also wouldn't be bidirectional going both to FB consoles and from FB controllers?
  14. Hello I just got something in the mail today from a friend. He saw this along his route to work pre-Covid and it was I believe a hundred bucks. First day salvation army was open from Covid he checked and this was something like 10 bucks or less. Since all of our friends that are Circle all look out for each other and help each other when we can and think everyday could potentially be Christmas so we don't have to intentionally go out of our way and feel artificial during Christmas and birthdays, when we treat each other like any day could be potentially a Christmas or birthday. As you can see in the picture it's an intellivision two style keyboard adapter and keyboard, along with the Genesis style one controller and an official Sega 9 pin extension cord. Obviously the first one is the star, but maybe someone modded the Genesis joystick to work with Intellivision. If so that would be kind of cool. May I have a place where there's more information about this on AtariAge? Is there a PDF of the instruction booklet somewhere? I doubt there are many games that are compatible with it. Tell me which ones they are and I'll see if I have them. I also noticed a cassette audio port and an auxiliary port and a remote port and a separate power port. I assume it's not going to work without a power supply. Is that correct? If it does need a power cord may I please have the proper voltage polarity and pin size from a universal adapter?
  15. Does it increase the value of an Intellivision if you composite mod it? Or do people prefer it kept in it's original condition? I just got a bunch of old Intellivision 1s from a second hand store and I'm wondering if composite modding them would increase or decrease their value.
  16. I was looking into rgb mods for the intellivision and besides the RetroRGB mod kit there isn't much available for ntsc models. I discovered a pal mod circuit here which requires 3 bits for red, green and blue, which ntsc models don't have. Instead, ntsc models have a 4bit code (one nibble for each background color) and the AY-3-8915 does all the color processing. My goal is to design a decoder circuit which takes the 4bit color code and convert it into the 3 bits per color rgb code. To do this I need to know the 3bit rgb codes for each background color so I can design the decoder. Does anyone have a pal intellivision service manual with the rgb color table? Would someone with a pal intellivision be willing to open it up and measure the rgb bits on the LM1886 for each background color? I have included a test rom and truth table for anyone willing to help me out. Thank you! intv_rgb_color_test.zip
  17. My last update to jzIntv was over 7 months ago. That doesn't mean I haven't touched jzIntv. Au contraire! I've added support for ECS cassette and printer, I've extended the debugger, I've added "raw input" mode for controllers such as the Retronic USB, and so on. See below for full details. Find it here: http://spatula-city.org/~im14u2c/intv/ ________ Release notes for 2018-12-25. Updates since 2018-05-09. --------------- New features: --------------- * Added Carl Mueller's IDIV, JDIV, ISQRT. This was an oversight from long ago, and now these are added under jzintv/examples/library/. * Raw-bits mode for controller adaptors such as Retronic that can provide raw input bits from native controllers. See PDxx_BIT_x in jzintv/doc/jzintv/kbdhackfile.txt & jzintv/doc/jzintv/retronic-usb-raw.kbd. * Debugger features: (see jzintv/doc/debugger.txt for updated docs) b? lists active breakpoints t? lists active tracepoints w? lists active write-watches @? lists active read-watches ?? outputs the debugger's current status * Add "button" mode to support analog joysticks that have analog buttons that report themselves as analog axes. * Add support for saving/loading ECS cassettes and printing to the ECS printer. ---------- Changes: ---------- * Updated the NTSC and PAL palettes based on experiments with TV capture cards and eyeballing several games. (Congo Bongo is a tough one to nail.) Also, NTSC and PAL now have different palettes. * macOS builds are now 64-bit only, driven by recent changes in macOS. jzIntv should still run with OSX 10.7.x or later. * A raw semicolon ';' in a kbdhackfile now introduces a comment. To bind the semicolon event, use the word SEMICOLON. ------------------------- Cleanups and bug fixes: ------------------------- * Fix "voice_compat" in internal ROM database. It accidentally requested ECS rather than Intellivoice for known voice games. * Myriad fixes to allow compiling with MSVC, along with an MSVC Makefile. * Myriad fixes to allow compiling with Clang from Xcode. * Many waves of 'const' correctness, and occasional 'restrict' qualifiers. * Many 'sanitizer' directed fixes. * Many minor memory leaks cleaned up. * Fix event scanning to actually allow <5ms granularity. Deepened the event queue as well. * Fix JSx_BTN_28, which has been b0rken for almost 20 years. * Fix the spelling of ecs_compat, version, publisher in metadata code. * Improve handling of build/release dates in metadata. * Fix HH:MM parsing for UTC offsets in metadata. * Remove C++14-isms; restrict to C++11 as baseline. * Use modern C++ style casts and 'nullptr' rather than 0/NULL in C++ code. * Fix include guards to not use _CAPS, but rather CAPS_. * Fall back to ECS-disabled if game sets ecs_compat to "enhanced" but no ecs.bin is available. * Fix documentation for -J flag in --help info. * Only print "diagonal bias" for 4diag mode in joystick status output. ------- Misc: ------- * Experimental Emscripten build. * Experimental Termux build.
  18. Let's start the official Castlevania for Intellivision thread. Here is a first look on the game's graphics. Please remember this is still WIP and our graphic artist is still working and polishing them. Also, the screens you see here are for illustration purpose and don't necessarily represent the stage layout as they will appear in the final game.
  19. Hi everyone c: I did this conversion of "Despacito" for MSX/Colecovision/Intellivision tonight, and I wanted to show it to all of you. I add the .bas file to compile on Intybasic and listen on your Intellivision. Enjoy. I will post here more of my works later. Check more of them on http://adan.eu.pn/ Despacito.bas

  21. In this issue of Video Game Collector from Spring 2006 you can win an Intellivision along with 20 games. This is issue also includes a price guide which I'll talk about in a video I'm working on so stay tuned for more.
  22. In this video I'm playing BurgerTime while talking a little about how much this sells for, if it will be on the Amico, and compare it to the 2600 and ColecoVision versions. I see some Data East collections out there and have seen this game in an Arcade 1Up cabinet and those mini My Arcade cabinets. And the Amico Wikipedia page lists BurgerTime so it looks like it will be but I don't recall Tommy mentioning it but I could have missed one of the 8,000 interviews he's done.
  23. Since the Amico game system controllers support Bluetooth, I'm going to take a stab and supporting them in the MrBoehm project. (See my AA blog for more details). I'm looking for someone with an in-depth understanding of the original Intellivision controllers who might be willing to provide guidance on how I can configure the MrBoehm controller output so that I can provide Amico controller support for the original Intellivision systems. PM if you're interested in volunteering. Thanks, Aaron
  24. I know Star Strike isn't the most playable of the classic games, despite its top notch graphics for its time. But i think the concept of a Star Wars inspired Trench run space battle game always has potential to be fun. You could even have a vector like level as a homage to the Star Wars arcade game. Anyone else onboard?
