My Atari 2600 Loaner Cart Has A Dot -- Automatically a Final Version?

Recommended Posts

The other day I found a 2600 Berzerk Loaner Cartridge in a thrift store with a bunch of other cartridges. It has a gold dot on the label, and no hand written or typed date on the white label. I'm guessing it is a final version. Tempest's Atari Protos site says that the dots represented different areas where some cartridges were used in (focus group testing, internal development, home testing, etc.)


I have a few questions --


1. If a cartridge has a dot does it mean that it is a final version?


2. Has anyone ever deciphered what area the different color dots represented?


3. How many different color dots have been discovered?

Is there any differences when you play this?


No differences. The screens look the same and it plays like a regular Berzerk cartridge.


wasn't white=ntsc and yellow=pal ?

but i'm not sure.


It is NTSC.
