All Atari records digitized on one DVD

Recommended Posts

This thread is from May 2008. :ponder:

We can hope and dream right? I mean if I was able to score 2 Atari 2600 Heavy Sixer 1977 joysticks with hex discs at Goodwill, maybe there is 1 or 2 left of this DVD from 2008?

 

 

That's what I was banking on as well... and if the DVDs are no longer available, maybe it'd be possible to put the Kid Stuff material online for everyone to enjoy?

hi everybody

 

indeed 5 are left.

The lucky 5 who asked first are:

 

arojas4570

driph

cvga

Midnight Synergy

Jeffgamer

 

I am sorry for everyone else - they are all gone now.

(But perhaps the community can "help out". I will not complain. It should be for everyone)

I never thought, there would be more than 50 people interested in....

 

I send a PM to you now.

since it looks as if all the discs are gone and another run might not happen, any chance we could get the iso images released so we could still enjoy your work?

Additionally, I'd be willing to upload and host the files once I receive the DVD, if you don't mind us redistributing them.

Jens kindly gave me the green light to upload this so everyone can access it.

 

I was thinking of uploading it to mediafire since it is rather large. Any suggestions?

Someone could always make a copy of the DVD... but eh, I hate copies of copies of Vinyl

 

Gimme the actual records any day: Atari and other classic gaming isn't the only hobby I have, ya know. :D

I ripped the entire DVD (excluding the raw WAV files) and uploaded it for you all to enjoy.

I compressed it with WinRAR into 150MB chunks wit 1% recovery record. If you run into any CRC Errors, just run the repair tool on the troubled archive and it should repair itself.

 

Please let me know how it works for you once downloaded!

Thanks for taking the time to rip and upload all of it for us! Downloading right now.

 

On another note, about 5 years ago on Ebay there was someone who had Every NES, Atari 2600-5200-7800 400/800, SNES, Colecovision Game Manual and Overlay ever made sent out on a DVD for around 15 bucks shipped. I bought one, but of course over the last 5 years I have moved 3 times and have lost the DvD :(. If I EVER happen to find the bloody thing I will definitely try to get copies to whoever wants it. It was how I printed out half of my overlays that I was missing. Whoever made that DVD did a hell of a job with it. Just wish I could find it or find the guy who made it!

Wow, what an awesome thing to stumble upon! You've made my day Jens. This is obviously an effort of considerable measure. Thank you. Having collected only a few of these albums I realize how hard it must've been to get a complete set and then go the extra mile for the community. Well done sir. Oh and also a big thanks to Tremoloman for the upload. Totally appreciate that. Now if you'll excuse me, I have some listening to do. :)

Wow, I sure missed out on this one! I have the Breakout record - still sealed so I don't want to open it, but man oh man - sounds like you did a great job!

Thanks JEK, Tremoloman and anyone else invlolved in this project. This is an awsome piece of history now saved and documented. I have a vision here of making nice laminated CD covers (Like a miniature scaled down version of a record cover) using the artwork included in this package. The CD labels could be made to look like the actual record labels and this would be amazing....... I might consider taking on such a project if there was enough interest of people who would want them. This would take a LOT of time to complete and I think would probably have to cost right around $10 per cover... This is of course just an estimate off the top of my head but I could get a better idea of cost after I complete one to factor in material cost and time to make them.......

 

If anyone thinks this is a good idea and would support such a project, please post here and I would consider the task with enough support.

Thanks for the kudos. I wish JEK was still logging in these days so he could see how many people appreciate his work.

 

If you go through with this project I could mail you a copy of the DVD that has the WAV files that are lossless. The entire DVD was 4GB and figured that was too large of a download for most people.

Heh, I used to have the book and cassette of The Adventures of Super Pac-Man. I don't have keen hearing anymore but I used to hear a faint telephone ringing on page 1 just after the narrator started the story.
