I received a letter from Rob Fulop!

Better late than never, eh? :)

 

That´s the custom 6502 chip on top of the 2600.

 

Many thanks to CPUWIZ for technical assistance.

Cool! I noticed it's also got chrome switch caps (which my Sears six-switcher used to have). I always thought the chrome caps looked better than the plain aluminum posts. I wish there was a source for them.

Gloat all you want, that's impressive!

Now you can de-bug some of the worst 2600 titles out there!

I just saw this thread and it said "I received a letter from Ro.." , worried me there for a moment as I though you were being contacted by Roman Polanski, I was gonna warn you to accept no drinks from him or take any "aspirin" that he offers.

And congrats to Palmer. The letter you have is icing on the cake.

 

Thanks.

That is very neat. What you don't have, or a least it's not pictured, is the 6502 ICE (In Circuit Emulator). It appears that instead of the ICE (which would be a largish box with a 40 pin ribbon cable) you have a regular MOS 6502 chip which when plugged into the ZIF allows the unit to function as a 'normal' VCS.

 

So, you won't be able to debug those VCS games. :(

I don't think this takes away from the coolness or historical significance of your find.

The ICE isn´t there. IIRC the VCS didn´t ship with a 6502 chip though, but with the marginally weaker 6507.

 

So, you won't be able to debug those VCS games. :(

 

Never crossed my mind to do so anyway :)
