  1. I've got a few Atari controller secrets to reveal which some of you may have never come upon. Here's the lowdown: 1) the Atari CX-22 Trakball has a desirable feature that the later-released black CX-80 Trakball doesn't have. In fact, there are other 2600-compatible trackballs that have this feature as well... 2) The combo paddle/joystick 2600 controllers made by Sears and Coleco are not as effective to play paddle games on a light sixer or heavy sixer unless you have a particular item to use with the controller. There are some people here who may have never known about this. 3) Omega Race is a two-button game requiring a special "Booster Grip" to properly play it. Some may not have that Booster Grip, but there is another way to play the game... and a controller from another gaming console is the key. 4) There's a particular mouse that can be used to play 2600 games, but there's a trick that you have to know in order to make it "active". I've got all this explained in today's presentation on my Wired-up Retro Ytube channel. Enjoy:
  2. So, I know all is fair in love and war, and hopefully something better will come along. However, my heart was crushed yesterday evening. I have a Wico 5200 joystick. I never had a Y-cable, so I made a keypad out of an old Radio Shack membrane keypad. It works well, but I would like to have a nice pair. I recently saw a Wico stick, with the Wico pad, on ebay. It was mint, and it even had the box. I kept telling myself I didn't need to spend any money, and I would watch. The seller would auction for a week, drop the price $5, and relist for another week. After three weeks of watching, there were ZERO bids. I finally decided that I'd never find another setup like that again. With only 3-hours left, I made my bid. Sure enough, somebody outbid me with an hour or so left. NOBODY HAD BID ON IT IN 3 weeks. They were just waiting to break my heart!!! I upped my bid, and they outbid me at the last minute. Kind of bummed. I know I am feeling more personal about it than it is. My initial reaction is to think they did it maliciously, just so I couldn't have it. I suppose they were just watching it too. Anyway, is anybody selling a working Wico 5200 with a y-adapter or keypad? Thanks, D
  3. Hello! acquired these joysticks in a lot purchased on eBay and have absolutely no idea who manufactured these. They do resemble Wico joysticks a lot (bat handle), but have suction caps and two fire buttons in their base and the rapid fire speed is on the bottom. Internally, they have four "Zippy" branded micro switches (smaller than those found in Competition Pros) for directions, two "spring switches" for the large fire buttons and a leaf switch for the small fire button in the top.
  4. Hey everyone, I'm looking for a Wico 5200 joystick and a y adapter cable for my Atari 5200 setup. I have a couple digital pro sticks but I would like to have an analog stick in the mix. I'm also looking for a wico keypad to go with the joystick. attached is a picture of what I'm looking for, the picture is borrowed from another Atariage members post a while back. Hit me up if you have any of this for sale, Thanks
  5. This thread is asleep for now. I'll wake it up at a later time. Well this an odd start. I don't have an Atari 5200 but I'm looking for the Wico Command Control Joystick and the Keypad that goes with it. I would hate to get an Atari 5200 with an official controller and try to refurbish the controller myself. Also, the fire buttons seem too much like the 7800 controller which can give you a severe hand cramp. I know these aren't exactly the cheapest controller to purchase. So I welcome any reasonable offer. Below is a picture of what I'm looking for: I'm also looking for a 2 port system here: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/245575-wanted-atari-5200-2-port-s-video-and-composite-modded/

  7. Hey all, I recently got a Wico Trackball for the my TI and I was wondering what games are good for it. After doing a quick google search it doesn't seem like many people use it or at least write posts about it. I've only got to games at my house (I'm on vacation right now): TI Invaders and Parsec. I thought TI Invaders would be awful with the ball, but it actually makes the game shockingly more accurate (at least compared to the default controllers) I figured that Parsec would be amazing with the trackball given the full 2 dimensional movement (x direction and y direction) but it really isn't good. I can't move up and down fast enough in that game to dodge enemy fire. Any suggestions? I know centipede would be really fun, but apparently its pretty rare.
  8. eBay Auction -- Item Number: 170970205911 I am selling a Wico controller and y cable for the Atari 5200. If you are interested in it, feel free to make an offer or PM me on here.
  9. I've been doing some research on Atari 2600 controllers recently, because of a project I'm starting in 2 months or so. And I have a few questions for you guys, that no doubt know a lot more than I do on the subject matter. 1) Let's start easy: the CX-50 Keyboard Controllers, the Star Raiders video touch pad and the Kid's Controller are practically the same thing, there's only external differences right? 2) The trackballs. I've seen 2 different ones, the CX-22 and the Pro-Line. And correct me if I'm wrong but, not counting hacks, there are no original 2600 games that support the trackballs in "trackball mode", right? They only work when the trackballs behave like joysticks, is that right? 3) This one's about Wico joysticks, the Command Control ones. They are high-quality controllers, I've heard, with metal base and stick, and internally they use leaf switches. I've seen how leaf switches work, and they seem very easy to repair, if they ever malfunction. So I'm asking Wico owners here: how good are these Joysticks? I think they look cool, and maybe I'll buy one (or two) in the future, but give me some feedback first. 4) I own a pair of Atari Flashback 3 Joysticks. They should work just like regular CX-40 Joysticks, right? 5) I've seen sites selling new reproductions of Atari joysticks. Is anyone making repro paddles out there? 6) This one is less important, but I'm curious: can you use joysticks to play Indy 500? Or does it only work with racing controllers? Well, that's all for now. Also, tell me if there's some other controller that I should check out, I like controllers
