  1. E-Jagfest is over, and it's about time we get some updates about the games shown there into public; especially those who are good on their way. So it's time for an official thread on Karate World Tour! Jagfest visitors could try out an early build of the game, and now we are proud to present it to the Atari Age community. "We", that is matashen who is doing the coding and myself who is drawing the graphics; with the final board being designed by Lynxman when it's time. Karate World Tour is a one-on-one competetive fighting game; a genre sorely missing on the Lynx to this day. It is inspired by early western fighting games, namely classics like International Karate and the Way of the Exploding Fist.. This means: no fireballs or quarter-circle plus punch moves, but a more realistic Karate simulation. No energy bars, but points. Just like a real Karate tournament. Highlight of the game will be the 2-player-Comlynx-mode. We hope that Atari fans everywhere will enjoy this game on events like the Jagfest in the future, we want it to become a favorite for occasions where Atarians gather. As with all of matashen's games you will also be able to save your highscores and possibly win/loss-ratio. You can expect all the moves and smooth animation you know from games like IK; nothing is ripped though, but carefully recreated for the Lynx' lower resolution. We will try to put many different locations for the fights in, four of which you can see right here (work in progress). Generally speaking, while our game is inspired by the classics we hope to make it even better if we can. We ope to get this game done in time for a 2013 release; it would be nice to have the first official championships held in November at the e-Jagfest 2013. But we cannot promise that yet, as Green Little Quak-Quak is the top-priority, but Karate World Tour will come right after it. So without further delay, here's the latest screenshots.
  2. The Atari Lynx 1-UP from: starforcepi.wordpress.com What’s the greatest handheld of the 1980s and 1990s? Why, the 16-bit arcade juggernaut named Atari Lynx, of course! I was a kid when the original Lynx 1 came out for us here in the old country in 1990, and was blown away. The Game Boy was a monochrome moron in comparison, and the Game Gear was all about converting Mega Drive and Master System games to pocket version – the Lynx, with its hardware-driven zooming and distortion of sprites, was going for Arcade experiences. BOOYA! Sadly, as with everthing Atari, this too turned to dust. BUT, fast-forward to 2018 and look at the love for this loveable giant! So much so, that McWill, a name you must’ve heard of by now, released one of the most impressive upgrades for a system I’ve ever seen – LCD replacement for the waning washed-out Lynx screen, with VGA output. The VGA output was a great addition, but the way I’ve seen people utilize it online seemed rather silly to me; you would have to use the Lynx as the controller when playing on the VGA. No sir, I don’t like it. So I decided to use the spacious room behind the screen to build an interface to: 1) securely place the Lynx on a stand; 2) output VGA; 3) connect a standard DB9 compatible controller (Mega Drive, Master System, Atari). It’s a tight squeeze, but the VGA, Controller port and Stand all fit neatly in the small 3x4cm interface window. This was an absolute pleasure to build, everything went smooth and simple, all the measurements were direct hits, hell even the stand only took me 10 minutes to design (8 hours to print, but hey). So let’s see it in full VGA action: It’s perhaps the best handheld to consolize: the GameGear has most games on Master System or Mega Drive, the GameBoy looks rather silly and clunky on a monitor, and TurboExpress is pointless, because it’s a 1-to-1 conversion of the actual console. I am glad I did it, I hope you will too, and stop placing those ugly connectors on the top of your handheld. Building the Lynx 1-UPI bought a pristine looking junked Lynx 1 for 20 euros – seemed a good place to start, let’s see if we can bring it alive! I replaced all the capacitors, power input socket, MOSFET, but finally it was the two 3906 transistors that were the issue. In order to do these replacements, you need a fine-point soldering iron and some tweezers, but everything on the board is quite spacious, so there’s no mistaking what’s what. This part is cheap: 7 dollars on console5.com. They have links and tutorials on that site, very complete. I also bought the McWill for 120 dollars, I was gonna do this mod regardless if this particular system was junked. So far everything together cost me ~150 dollars. After bringing the console back to live, it was time for McWillification! I followed the 1 page diagram that came with it, but it’s a little information dense, so I followed the following video instead: This worked better than I could have ever imagined, I know everyone says they’re gobsmacked when they see the difference, but it really is very true – I get why it’s such an expensive mod now. I was gonna leave it with that, honestly that’s just everything one could ever want from an upgrade… but, of course, me being the way I am, things escalated. You see, the mod came with the VGA socket, and I saw how people were placing these at the top of their handhelds, and you know what – it looked ugly. I want the facade of the handheld to be untouched. While I was adding the McWill mod I noticed the enormous space left behind the screen, which is when I had the idea: make the Lynx into a hybrid, with the connector ports at the back with a stand for console gaming via VGA, and all the ports hidden behing a minimal cover during handheld gaming. I first ordered DB9 sockets for a controller, and placed this together with the VGA socket on the inside of the battery cover. I made a little window in the battery cover, 3D printed a frame and cover for the ports, and there we have our interface. For the controller ports I had to solder 6 wires on the button pads of the Lynx PCB. Luckily most of these have soldered extension traces, so you can avoid blocking the normal button-to-pad press, but for two I had to solder directly onto the pad: be mindfull to be as flat as possible. Then we wire up the VGA socket to the pads on the McWill screen, this is shown in the accompanied diagram of the screen. We then place the DB9 and VGA socket in the space between the batteries, where the little light tube of the old screen sat (ignore the loose wires, they’re from the battery input, I cut them for ease of access). In the left picture, top connector is the VGA socket you can see running to the McWill screen. The lower connector go to the front of the PCB to the button pads. When assembled the VGA socket is lower, and DB9 is upper. Next to these I added screw connectors, so that I may fix the system to a stand, as shown in the next pictures: Unlike the Nintendo Snack Pack, this was a joy to make. I did it to unwind and relax, I didn’t want to build something from the ground up, but this just gave enough inspiration to just slightly 1-up it. The Lynx Stand and little VGA cover in particular really clean the mod up nicely, and makes this thing into a fully consolized system. I must admit though, I’ve been mostly playing it with the stand and controller via the McWill screen, not via VGA, but hey, it’s there. Finally, it all cost me a substantial 150 euro, but it was worth it. The Atari Lynx is a very strange and powerful handheld, spanning 7 years with 72 games, it’s still enjoying new homebrew releases every year, with a small but dedicated following. I’m very happy to be one of them.

  3. Hi, everyone. I have the following Japanese editions of Lynx games available for trade: Klax (loose cart) Gates of Zendocon (CIB) Shanghai (CIB) I would like to trade any of them for the following Lynx collectibles: Hard Drivin' pin Official Atari Lynx Club pin Official Atari Lynx Club wallet Official Atari Lynx Club cap Official Atari Lynx Club t-shirt Défi Lynx t-shirt I'm also looking for the CIB Japanese edition of any of these Lynx games: Chip's Challenge Paperboy Rampage RoadBlasters Rygar Todd's Adventures in Slime World Zarlor Mercenary I might be willing to hear other interesting proposals for trade if the offered item is rare enough. If necessary, money can be used to balance the trade either way, but please note that none of these items are for sale, they are exclusively for trade. Anyone interested can PM me. Thanks in advance for your time and interest. Regards, Juan José.
  4. I had just done a McWill update and everything was working great. It ran fine for a few hours and a few on/off cycles, then I couldn't turn the Lynx on. I assumed the MOSFET has failed, ordered a couple, put it in and then POP, TP18 blew up real good! Perhaps I didn't purchase the right MOSFET, or just a coincidence? This is the MOSFET I ordered from Digikey: NDT2955CT-ND NDT2955 MOSFET P-CH 60V 2.5A SOT-223-4 Assuming nothing else blew and I have the right part, I've heard there was a zener diode I should be replacing as well, but I don't know which one or it's value. I, of course, need to replace TP18 -- what part is that? Thanks in advance to you all.
  5. In my effort to provide documentation for lynx, I've started a new task : "vectorisation" of the Atari Lynx Schematics. I've done it with KiCAD. The schematics are based on the 4 part of Atari Lynx Hardware Schematics This is not the "final" version. Some parts were hard to read/understand. If you see any mistake, please feel free to report it. Schematics v0.1.pdf
  6. I recently purchased this retail standee display and accompanying items. The Batsignal lights up when you press the button and it still works. It runs off of a 9V battery. I'd never know of Grey Matters magazine before finding this and attempting to find copies of other volumes doesn't look easy. Hope you all enjoy and if anyone knows of other Lynx displays I'd like to see them. http://imgur.com/gallery/AFodP
  7. A real labor of love is finally complete. An Atari drawing for everyday of the month of October 2016 (31 drawings), now in one beautifully printed collection, Inktober 2016 | Atari Propaganda. Atari Lynx, Atari ST, and Atari Jaguar are featured most of the time, but there are a few bonuses in there as well. Because I am not one for heavy marketing, I want to make sure that everyone who would like a copy of this collection can get it for a deal right up front. I also don't want to spend the next year packing and shipping books, I got more Atari art to make darn it! So here is a bit of encouragement to purchase sooner rather than later. If you purchase the Atari Propaganda collection before the end of the day January 27th, you can get the $20 book for $18 USD (%10 off). If that is still too much, sign up for my mailing list (link at the top of my website) and get an additional %15 off of a single copy making your purchase $15 + shipping. This includes a dated signature from the artist of course. Not interested in buying the whole collection? Not a problem, I also have all the larger (8.5x11") art prints of every drawing on sale as well for $7 a piece. Pick the ones you really want, without the hassle of flipping the pages of a book. Thank you for the support, and enjoy the Atari fan art goodness!

  8. Being a noob to the world of Lynx, why is this one so rare? All I can find so far seems to be a $260 & $330 listing on Ebay! Do they usually go for cheaper when they show up or is that about right? Those are both boxed too, but still.....I know the Telegames titles tend to be rare, but I think that's a huge leap in price compared to some of the other rarer ones I've searched for. Seems like a kick ass title for the Lynx regardless I remember the Strike series for Super Nintendo/Genesis, etc. I always found them interesting, but never got to play em.
  9. Some great classic TV commercials in this short video. Including Batman Returns. Which was a decent port for the handheld. Link: https://goo.gl/cKSmC4
  10. I was looking for the woman who worked with John Skruch when I worked for Atari and I found THIS! I hope this is not a repeat post, but this is AWESOME! http://www.digitpress.com/library/books/book_atari_lynx_hint_book.pdf I always loved the Zarlor Mercenary "Game of Life" egg and the Chips Challenge Mandelbrot generator. Notes: The RoadBlasters egg is wrong - you have to be holding a button when you drive into the tree. Toki eggs were unknown to Sunnyvale apparently (hehehehe).

  12. Hello to every Lynx fanatics, Is there a good game designer, pixel artist ready to invest some(a lot ...) time in a homebrew project ? I am a hobby developer but have sadly no design skill and knowledge. I have a beginning of a raycasting engine which needs contents. I attach the current dev. status(game.zip) so you can figure out if you'd like and are ready to enroll. If you do please PM me. Even if you don't feel like an artist's soul, any ideas, suggestions are welcome. Thanks.
  13. - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Oklahoma's Retro Video Game Exhibition Returns TULSA, OK (April 5, 2013) – Classic video games will return from history, as mid-America's one and only OVGE returns for the tenth Oklahoma Video Game Exhibition! On September 21, 2013 video game collectors and enthusiasts from Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, and even further will travel together to the Spirit Bank Event Center in Tulsa to celebrate the history, hobby, collecting, and entertainment of the video gaming industry. “Before the OVGE, people from the surrounding states had to travel across the country for events such as this,” said Jesse Hardesty, founder and organizer of the OVGE. "And since the OVGE first began back in September of 2003, we have inspired many other retro conventions in the surrounding areas." In 1972, the release of the Odyssey by Magnavox, the first multi-video game system for the home was a new technological curiosity. Seven years later in 1977, Atari released the 2600VCS and both created and changed home entertainment forever and the beginning of a new industry! Then, in the year of 1983 an overflow of poor games and even poorer sales resulted in the great crash of the video game industry. A crash that wouldn't heal until 1985, with the introduction of the Nintendo Entertainment System, video game sales and popularity have flourished ever since! Still, many video game players find themselves returning to classic video games. With the advanced high definition graphics and motion control of today’s video games, why are so many people fascinated with the classics? “Even though modern game systems have amazing graphics and sound, the most important aspect of any video game is that it actually be fun to play. Because classic game systems, like the Atari 2600, had very simple graphics, game designers had to focus on the game-play. Those same games that were fun in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s are still just as much fun today,” stated Albert Yarusso, modern video game programmer and co-founder of AtariAge.com. It is this simple pick up and play philosophy that makes for quick gaming and is a philosophy still active today with the rise of mobile games and powerful portable handheld gaming systems. "With video gaming being today’s main form of home entertainment, the history behind it should not be forgotten,” said Hardesty. “The Oklahoma Video Game Exhibition provides today's youth and their parents a chance to visit and interact with that past." This year, some of the proceeds from OVGE will benefit the Autism Center of Tulsa a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of those affected by autism, a series of spectrum neurological disorders now being diagnosed in approximately one in every eighty-eight births in the United States alone. Numerous video game systems, computers, and arcade machines, will be set up for the public to play plus tournaments and door prizes! Vendors and exhibitors will have memorabilia on display with most items for purchase. Doors will open to the public at 9:00 a.m. and close at 5:00 p.m. Cost of admission for ages eight and above is $5 dollars at the door. The OVGE is organized by gaming enthusiasts who want to share their hobby and passion for classic and modern video games with the public. For more information and complete details, visit www.ovge.com.
  14. Hi Everyone - Relatively new (back to it, at least) to the Lynx world and I am looking to rebuild my library. I'm looking for some games like Paperboy, Batman, Ninja Gaiden, Lemmings, Robotron, California Games, Stun Runner, etc. If anyone has any they're willing to part with reasonably inexpensive, let me know! Thanks!
  15. With MGC being about 3 months away, figured now is the best time to send out my feelers for helpers for Jagfest section there. I am hoping to make it this year to help celebrate the 20th anniversary of this event that started in chicago on july 12th,1997(working on getting my license to drive instead of taking megabus or relying on going with others) if anybody is interested in helping let me know. Side note: we also looking for some help on the section for VGS in July as well while we can't do much with space limits,but any help with jagfst section is good. so let me know about that as well.
  16. I love reviewing weird and unusual games that most people may not have heard of and a few months ago I started sharing some of my favorite games from the Lynx. So far there are three episodes to this "Lynx retrospective" where I discuss the games. It starts with Electrocop, then Gates of Zendocon, followed by Slime World. My next one will be a conclusion video (unless suggested otherwise) where I showcase a few more games for the system with little snippets about each one (Blue Lightning, Paperboy, Hydra, Gauntlet, Toki, Rygar, and California Games to name a few). I thought fans of the system would get a kick out of it ^_^ I hope it is found to be enjoyable... Episode One: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LP5EHK0JLLw Any feedback or suggestions for more games would be welcome. Should I give games like Blue Lightning their own video or should I just end it with the compilation as mentioned above?
  17. I've listed a bunch of Lynx and 7800 games fulfilled by Amazon Canada, search or click through them here: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/aag/main/ref=olp_merch_name_2?seller=ASVVEHBRLZEPV I didn't spend a lot of time setting prices, feel free to make me an offer on here if I've overpriced something and I'll reduce it on the site. I listed them here because I need to get rid of a whole load of stuff and I shipped it all to Amazon in a single box for CAD$10 - packing up and calculating the shipping for 60+ individual boxes is just too much effort for me. Also shipping is cheap (or free if you have Prime or order enough) within Canada, and hopefully shouldn't be too bad from the US either.
  18. ** EDIT ** This system has been traded, thanks for all the interest! Lynx 2 system which includes the following items: Boxed Kit Case (purchased new from B&C) Com-Lynx cable Power Supply NOS screen installed from Best Electronics Boxed Games: Chip's Challenge (purchased new) Ishido (box is rough) Rampart (purchased new) Shanghai (purchased new) Steel Talons (box is good) Tournament Cyberball (box is fair) Xybots (purchased new) Loose games with manuals: California Games Klax (purchased new from B&C) Warbirds Loose Games: Checkered Flag Crystal Mines II Gates of Zendocon Qix Roadblasters Xenophobe Zarlor Mercenary Everything works. Not willing to break up the set at this point. Looking for $150 shipped to the 48 states, or will trade for a PSP 3000 with charger, memory stick and some games. Can ship outside US, however you will need to pay additional for actual shipping cost. Pix:
  19. I noticed that best-electronics-ca.com is selling refurbished Lynx decks for around $45, which seems pretty straight to me. They offer both the Lynx I and II. Does anyone have an opinion as it which one I should get? Personally, I think that the first model looks cooler.

    lynx on psp

    Help! Can someone help me figure out how to install a lynx emulator on my psp1000? I'm totally new to this. I think I have unlock it and install custom firmware. I just want a second option besides digging my lynx 2 out of the closest. thanks
  21. I can either do money or trade. Stuff for trade: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/228532-complete-genesis32x-lot-interest-money-or-trade-prices-added/ http://atariage.com/forums/topic/225148-segasaturns-fs-threadbooks-computer-parts-etc-updated-721/?do=findComment&comment=2984944 Or money if we can do a deal! I'm looking for a lot of different Lynx games. Just pm me with what you have!
  22. So I have noticed lately that the game gear case is horribly designed in this regard, placing the game cases above the screen which will eventually scratch them. My Lynx case also has stuff move around it sometimes, though I use my sun visor as a screen protector basically I tried putting a small screen cleaning rag on my GameGear but it always slides off exposing the screen to potential damage.. SO....what do you guys do to keep your screens scratch free? I swear one of the best tertiary design effects of the DS two screens layout is that it keeps the scratches off. Kids still manage to destroy them somehow. Thanks in advance!
  23. Just did a capacitor replacement on my Atari Lynx model 2 this weekend. One of my two units was suffering from some nasty audio clipping, distortion and overall low volume. The camera was on a lower quality shooting mode and I did realize until I was done with the filming. I apologize for that but you can still make out enough to get see the overall process and results afterwards.
  24. I used to do be the head of Lynx development at Atari in Chicago in the late 80's and have come across some old ROM files. One is 720ws.rom, the other is simpsons.rom which is probably the sound demo that has gotten around. Is there a way I can convert these unprotected ROM images to .lnx files to see what I have here in handy? Handy is asking for howard.o, but judging by people's responses and it's rarity on the net, I don't expedt to get that. More images and possibly code aree probably coming as we excavate floppies. Sooner or later we'll get to the development Amiga 2000 that was used to develop a bunch of games.
