  1. Hello, I'm new here and I'm looking for some help. I bought the flashback portable and I've been trying to get ROMs to work on it. I am using a 8gb SDHC card and transfered ROMs I downloded from here. I can see them on the portable but I cant get them to play. Any advice please.
  2. Which of these 2 AtGames Flashback Portable's would you recommend I buy? 1) Atari Flashback Portable Console (80 Games Included) (eu) /retro by Atari ESRB Rating: Everyone 2.6 out of 5 stars  7 Xbox One $29.00(15 used & new offers) 2) Atari Flashback Portable Deluxe Edition - Hand Held Console by Atari 4.6 out of 5 stars  7 $29.99(5 used & new offers)
  3. Hi everyone! I have the following up for sale: Sega Game Gear Handheld system Includes the following accessories: carrying case (Sega brand) charger (Sega brand) portable battery pack (Sega brand) Holds a charge. screen magnifier Includes the following 17 games: Aladdin Battle Toads Batman Forever Batman Returns Earthworm Jim Jurassic Park Madden 95 NBA Jam NBA Jam TE Road Rash Sonic The Hedgehog 2 Sonic Triple Trouble Taz in excape from Mars The Jungle Book The Lion King (worn label) The Majors Pro Baseball X-Men Quick video clip GG_demo.mp4 I'm not sure what's causing it but the speaker volume is really low. It, however, works fine with earphones. The power backup works great. PM me with any offers, questions, or suggestions Thanks for looking!
  4. I've seen Atari Flashback Portables at my local Target dropping to as low as $40. I've been a little curious as to how they are, but is it worth picking one up? Are there any caveats I should be aware of? How is game compatibility? How is hardware emulation? The only Flashback I've ever had was the Flashback 2 (I have two of those), but the Portable seems interesting.
  5. Just wanted to let everyone know about the release of Gaming on Batteries Magazine #1. GoB Mag is a new take on the way gaming magazines present their content. We don't have columns of text, minuscule pictures of the games (or worse, very few pictures). We don't waste pages on page after page of editorials by the staff, we focus on the games and displaying them as well as we can within the confines of a page. The contents of the first issue are: Reviews: Kid Icarus: Uprising on the 3DS Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D on the 3DS Kid Dracula on Game Boy Virtua Tennis Challenge on Android Rayman Origins on PS Vita and the following Features: 8 Essential Game Boy Games E3 Focused on Portable Gaming I think the magazine is attractively priced at a buck for the digital and $4.99 +shipping for the print. The physical print copies use 80# Text Paper Stock, the same as the old 90's Gamefan magazine. The pages are sturdy and will hold up quite well to the deluge of ink on each page. The staff of Gaming on Batteries Magazine are: Myself, Carl Williams, my professional publishing work includes Copy Editing Classic Video Gamer Magazine (#1, #2 and #3), Managing Retro Editor for Gamefan Magazine (reboot, issue #6) and owning/operating the Gaming on Batteries website. Nick Abrams was one of the retro writers for Gamefan #6 and is co-owner with me on Gaming on Batteries. Ryan Janes and Carl Burton are our resident UK writers. Dustin Vogler is a member of the Classic L337 podcast and staff writer for GoB. Kevin Sousa is co-host of The Paranerds podcast and staff writer for GoB. Copy Editors and debuting in future issues are: Eric Bailey, better known as The Nintendo Legend. Michael Crisman, former writer for Gamefan magazine (issue #6, see a pattern yet?) Jason Fanelli, dude is all over gaming and a former writer for Gamefan magazine (nope, not issue #6 but #7 and, I believe, #. We are interested in hearing what fans think of the magazine, what they would like to see more of and what they think we did wrong. Fans can write to [email protected] for now. Gaming on Batteries Magazine is available on Magcloud at http://www.magcloud.com/browse/issue/416376 Gaming on Batteries can also be found at http://www.gamingonbatteries.com
  6. So I finally got a 3D printer and was also coincidently playing my FB portable recently and remembered that back when I bought it where was an online seller with a replacement D-Pad that was supposed to be an improvement. Figuring there was one I could print I started searching around and either my search-fu is weak but neither is anywhere to be found. I can't find any reference to one being sold and the only 3D printable one I've seen referenced is the one @Fireslayer26 mentioned but he seems to have only been here briefly and that was almost a year ago. Thingaverse doesn't seem to have one either. I've not yet attemped to model or make aything from scratch and even if I had I wouldn't know what needed to be done to improve it. My first hope is that someone has or can point me to a existing model that I can print on my 3D printer. Short of that any help is appreciated. Thanks!

  8. Hello hardware gurus! Got a problem I was hoping someone might be able to help me with. I have a Turbo Express I picked up about a year ago that's now having issues. But first, some background on the unit. When I first bought it, it was having the usual "weak sound" issue. In addition to that, it had a weird condition where, after turning it on, it would sometimes need to sit running for 30 seconds to a full minute before the LCD screen would "wake up", let's call it. Of course, I was able to fix the audio issue by replacing the related electrolytic caps. Audio still isn't super strong like an Atari Lynx, but was good enough that I could play it without headphones in a reasonably quiet room. So today, it's been 2 or 3 months since I got it out to play around with it. But on a whim, I decided I wanted to enjoy some Devil's Crush on the small screen, so I pulled its carrying case off the shelf, popped in some fresh AAs, and turned it on. And while the audio kicked in just fine, with the game playing in the background, the screen stayed lit but black. At first I just assumed I needed to let it run for a while, like before. But even after leaving it running for over 5 minutes, I still wasn't getting any display output. I'd read that sometimes running off the DC adapter's power can help, so I popped out the batteries and plugged in the wall wart. Waited another 5 minutes, but still nothing. Any guidance here? I know there's more electrolytic caps inside this thing that I can replace on the PCB, but most of what I've read online seems to suggest that generally doesn't help with this problem. Has anyone else run into a similar issue with their TE or PCE GT that they were able to successfully diagnose and resolve? Thanks much in advance for any help and/or suggestions! - [email protected]
  9. I used to think it was just a nagging habit. (If you get that reference you get a gold star.)
  10. As usual, whenever I finish another major build I run on over to AtariAge and share the tales of mayhem and mirth. I hope you guys are gonna dig it, it's The Nintendo Snack Pack. After rebuilding every major classic system from the console wars era, I finally brought the remaining two powerhouses of the late-80s/early-90s into one easy-to-carry little console. A light-weight version of the Sega Omega Drive, if you will, featuring a carefully hand-picked list of games for the NES and SNES, running on official Nintendo hardware (emulation, but still). When the NES mini came out, I wasn’t that interested, thoroughly entrenched with Team RasPi & Original Hardware. But when I played my brother’s NES mini and saw that excellent interface, the simple yet rich features, and played on the responsive and authentic controller, I was hooked. And 30 well-picked games was perfect for a guy who never owned anything Nintendo except a GameBoy (SEGA For Life, Baby!). I’ve been wanting to built something Nintendo for a while now, and this was it. I set to work, and created The Nintendo Snack Pack Dedicated Oldschool Entertainment System (DOES). If you’re interested how I built it, visit the buildblog. I wanted the system to be really easy and fun, no brain required, and above all, portable. That’s why the system is fitted with a large 20.000mAh battery and comes with a 12v charger – just carry and play! The system revolves around a SNES mini and a NES mini board stacked on top of each other, which you can switch between via the large vintage-style rotary dial at the front. This dial also allows you to go to other channels, but we’ll get to them later. Each board is hakchi’d and contains a host of platforms and games that can be played via the controller ports at the front, for 1 and 2 player action. The system features a rich 8″ IPS LCD display, running at 1024×768 in 4:3 aspect ratio. Sound is pumped through 1.2watt Logitech stereo speakers for clean & crisp audio, and the whole thing is housed inside a vintage 1972 portable black & white Sony TV-740. The Nintendo Snack Pack has 4 retro channels to choose from, so let’s check’m out! Channel 1: NINTENDO WORLD – Plays the mighty NES, it’s heir to the crown SNES, and Classic Gameboy and GBA games! Of course a channel dedicated to classic Nintendo is fun, but you know what’s more fun than classic Nintendo? Classic SEGA! That’s right, the second mini board is loaded up with everything decidedly NOT Nintendo. Just switch your controller over to the SEGA ports, and Welcome to the Next Level: Channel 2: SEGA ZONE – Play the powerful Mega Drive, Master System, & Game Gear! We even sneaked on a bit of PC Engine, Lynx & Vectrex! All that 8- and 16-bit action getting a bit much? Need a moment to chill, and reflect how to kill that damn boss in Contra Hard Corps? Switch over to channel 3 and chill out with some toons. Channel 3: VIDEODROME – Stream classic cartoons, movies and shows via Chromecast! Classic games are excellent of course, and I enjoy seeing a bit of Ghostbusters over breakfast with the kids, but sometimes you wanna play a little more modern games, right? Well, thankfully this bad boy is equipped with AV RCA input, allowing you to hook up that PlayStation, Saturn or DreamCast for some late-90s polygon action! Channel 4: INSTERT GAME – With oldschool AV you can connect your own console or VHS player! I built this with the idea of making something that would be undeniably fun and flexible, easy to use and portable. What I didn’t consider was how difficult it was to build, especially because I tried following a systematic workflow. This didn’t work out so well, so I went back to building in the manner I had always done: intuitively. Hack and slash, and solder, and fry, and curse, and burn, and replace and finally out from the carnage we get a little treasure that is something I could’ve only dreamed about when I was a kid. A little gaming TV that does it all. Wanna know how I built it? Check out ‘Building the Nintendo Snack Pack’! Wanna know what 30 SEGA Games I chose for channel SEGA ZONE? Check out ‘SEGA’s Fatal 30 for the Nintendo Snack Pack’! Nintendo Snack Pack SPECS: Authentic Nintendo NES Mini Board (Channel 1) Authentic Nintendo SNES Mini Board (Channel 2) 4x Controller Ports (1-2 Player for Channel 1 & 2, respectively) Google Chromecast 2nd Generation (Channel 3) RCA Audio/Video Input (Channel 4) Aluminium Rotary Dial to switch channels 8″ IPS LCD screen in 4:3 aspect ratio, 1024×768 (HDMI/RCA/VGA) Logitech 1.2watt Stereo Speakers (Z120) 20.000mAh 12V DC Battery Vintage 1972 Sony TV-740 Converted Case Dimensions: 25 x 20 x 24 cm, Weight: 2.5kg (5.5lbs)
  11. Hi guys, For sale is the portable Atari as seen in Terminator 2 In great condition, works fine, uses batteries Price: 70 Euro + shipping (10 Euro) If interested, reply or message me You can even simulate the cracking program from the movie with a .bat file Clip from the movie scene: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=58h7AHim4Vg
  12. It's crazy, but that's the point of all of my "Wishing for..." posts. I can imagine taking the Ultimate Flashback concept to the absurd level by placing it inside a Macintosh AIO case (Mac SE, SE/30, Classic, etc) for a truly portable, better-than-Vectrex-like experience. There would be so much space inside the case that there would be room for a super-large battery, so taking the whole thing to the park to play would be possible for an hour or two. What could better on a picnic than playing some Sea Battle? Actually it would be very similar to http://johan.kanflo.com/another-raspberry-pi-powered-macintosh-classic/now that I have done a Bingle search to see if anything similar has been tried...
  13. OK well, i got my flashback about a week ago not only because I loved most of the pre bundled games that came with it, but the idea of being able to add roms sold me! Now onto the problem..... First let me say, YES ive read every FAQ, help, and such thread on this issue. My flashback will NOT read my SD card UNLESS....I put the card in while the system is already powered on. Ive tried 3 diff cards; 8GB SDHC, 4GB SDHC, 2GB SD. Ive used the recommended formatter software, the games are in the correct extension (first letter uppercase, rest lowercase). Ive created the "game" folder. I know the roms work because like i said the system reads the card IF i put it in while the system is already on. Help on this please?
  14. http://youtu.be/A0S1MwgSutI The Sony Playstation Portable (PSP) rocked my world in 2005 with it's amazing power, beautiful 3D graphics and fun games. Here are some more PSP Hidden Gems from my collection. Gurumin A Monstrous Adventure Untold Legends The Warriors Code Pangya Fantasy Golf Brave Story New Traveler Sid Meier's Pirates! Chili Con Carnage Gitaroo Man Lives! Pursuit Force Extreme Justice What games would you like to see in Part 3?
  15. I still bring my 3DS along quite a bit. Great, full e-shop on there. It does amaze me how primitive Mario Kart 7 seemed after playing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on the go...haha. I can see using both for a good long while but I will say my 3DS has been staying home more and has been fully off and on a shelf for longer than ever since I bought it since the switch came out. I used to walk around all day at work with my 3DS on hoping to get street pass tags, one of the cooler social features of that system I think. What about you?
  16. Had a great time in Akihabara, Tokyo recently and decided to pick up some MSX and Bandai WonderSwan stuff. I have another thread related to the MSX games. Here are my WonderSwan products I'm currently selling.

  17. Asking price (negotiable) $750 includes shipping to continental US states. It weighs a LOT, shipping is approximately $100 just for that. Will ship internationally, but expect the shipping cost to go way up Might be better to use a re-shipping company in that case. A few years ago I won this in a drawing, and was really hoping to keep it But financial issues getting my main line vintage systems up to where I want them precludes that. It works great and only has 2 issues. The blue hinge caps are removed (but included,) so I could find out why the left hinge wouldn't lock. The hinge is missing the metal studs that keeps it from turning. The right hinge locks just fine. May be an easy fix, or may need a replacement. Also the keyboard sometimes will print multiple characters on a single press, and occasionally won't register at all. All the keys work, if your careful, though. Ideally, someone near Waco, TX will buy it and come pick it up. Figure 300 mile radius with current cost of gas & average mileage to save money on shipping (assuming you have the time to drive for 10-12 hours to get here and back.) But Austin, Dallas, or Fort Worth should be an easy choice sx64.3gp
  18. Howdy, y'all. This has been in the works for far too long and today, I'm nauseous to announce that: “The end of the game.com” rides again. www.diskman.com/presents/gamecom Yep. My formerly threadbare website about a handheld game system that's even less enjoyable than the Supervision [!!]... is back. Now bloated with far more information than you'll ever care to know, to experience it is a grand adventure in masochism. (Though still less painful than actually playing game.com games.) If you're wondering why I've wasted so much time building a virtual shrine to such a useless piece of plastic stuffed with shoddy electrical components, it's simple: I did it because I knew no one else would. Amen. So come on by and relive all your game.com favorites! (I'd say, "You'll be glad you did," but we both know you'll regret it.)
